Luna Miracle Hair Treatment

Hey dolls!

I was excited to see a blogger launch a hair product and when I seen Lisa Jordan, Just Jordan come out with the brand “Luna” and her second product being a big surprise, a leave in hair treatment, I knew I had to have it and try it out! I purchased mine in Grow unltd in Waterford.  First impressions where good, the packaging looks pretty its something you would want in your hair care products.

I have used it since I bought it and there was a once off that I didn’t use it and I noticed such a difference, by god this is a miracle!!. When I started using it I instantly knew I would love it! I had Beauty Work extensions in my hair 6 months and it gave them a boost each time and gave them an amazing shine also. I found the product helped me detangle the extensions and smoothen them out. Also not to mention the smell it gives, its devine, which is very important with a hair product! When I use a product on a client the smell is what gives the first reaction “oooh whats that!” so having a nice smell for me is a key point. I now have my extensions out and have been still using this in my hair each time!

Bad Hair Day? not any more!

We have all experienced those days when our hair just does not cooperate the way we would like it to be,  don’t deny it! Whether it’s bed hair, second day hair, or a simply just a bad hair day – here are 6 simply easy and quick tips on how to fix it! Dont worry you will not need to do a Britney moment and shave your head!

1. Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo absorbs excess oils and adds a volumizing texture to your hair. If you don’t have dry shampoo handy, try this simple trick: take a small amount, about a teaspoon size of baby powder and gently massage it into your scalp at the roots. This will also absorb excess oils and make your hair appear fresher but this method mainly works on lighter hair as dark hair will have a grey look on your hair.

Tip: use little by little of the dry shampoo, make sure not to use too much, or otherwise it will be noticeable.

2. Braids, braids, braids

I just love braids anyway but not only will they cover up that second day hair, they also look so much better on second or third day hair. For some ideas on what kinds of braids you can try out:

 

 

3. Tease your roots

For flat hair, backcombing the roots will instantly lift the hair and give it a lively, fuller look.

4. Embrace the frizz

Your hair doesn’t need to be perfectly smooth at all times. Why not go with your frizz rather than against it by lightly braiding or putting your hair in a boho hairstyle , and just be confident with it?

5. Wash half your hair

This one may sound a little strange, I know, but for a lot of us the process of washing and drying the hair can take a long time and is just complete effort. When you’re in a rush, take the front part of your hair and wash that section only (maybe even in the sink). If you have a fringe, just go ahead and wash the fringe. This will give an illusion that you have freshly washed hair and take the attention away from what you’re trying to hide!!

6. Rock that cute hat or headband

This one is a major one!! If you have tried all of the above and your hair is still annoying you or your just too lazy to even try attempt to fix it, than throw on a hat to disguise it all! Try rocking a cute hat with a side braid, or tease your hair at the crown and put on a thick headband. Ta-da what bad hair day?

It’s only a bad hair day if we allow it to be one. You are beautiful no matter what, stay confident and smile lots. If you do not attract attention to your not so perfect hair on those bad hair days, I am telling you, nobody will even notice a thing about it!! 🙂

Maintaining your hair colour

Picture you leaving the hair salon with a beautiful newly fresh shiny hair colour and you feel amazing, but unfortantly when not looking after your hair it turns all dull faded and you feel awful. I am here to help you! Here are a few tips to help you maintain your hair colour!

Good colour starts with healthy hair.

HYDRATE!! W hile bleaching your hair isn’t the best way to start, it is necessary to do in order to achieve a lighter or bright colour.  Unhealthy, damaged hair will not hold colour well and being dry it loses its colour quickly. You may make it from black hair to blue in a week by bleaching your hair twice a day but that blue won’t hold because your hair is in awful condition. Be patient with your journey from dark hair to light hair. Make sure to nurture your hair. Hair masks and repair products are your best friends!

High quality hair colour

After healthy hair, the next most important thing is a very good hair colour product. I highly recommend going to a salon to get your hair done as we know what we are doing. . Since salon brands are gentle on your hair, it’s totally fine, and really highly recommended as they know when enough is enough with your hair.

Rinse with cool water.

This is actually a best tip if you have a funky colour in your hair. If you skip all other tips (please don’t, especially healthy hair!) this is the one to follow. Warm water opens the hair cuticle allowing colour to escape. I’m not saying you need to wash your hair with ice cold water, but in reality, the colder the better. Just use cold water for your hair and crank the heat up when doing your body.
While we’re on the subject of water, it should be noted that swimming in chlorinated water is awful for your hair colour. For good measures, just keep your hair dry as much as possible or smother your hair in conditioner before going in.

Use the right shampoo & conditioner!

The main step to long lasting colour is to use a colour save/protecting shampoo and conditioner. Depending on your colour you may need toning (e.g. for blondes that tend to go brassy, a purple shampoo is needed!) Stay away from a clarifying shampoo this stripes and gets rid of the colouring in your hair (i.e head and shoulders).

Sulfates and alcohol based products are another two huuuge things that will fade any hair color. Sulfate free shampoos can be kind of tricky to find sometimes, but they’re definitely worth switching to. Even with sulfate free shampoo, you should still try to cut back on shampoo use. Shampoo strips your hair of it’s natural oils, as well as the colour. If you’re lucky enough to not have super greasy hair skip washing every other day and use a dry shampoo on your off days. My dry shampoo of choice is Wella “Dry Me” It’s a little bit more expensive than others I’ve found and tried but easily the best!

Avoid heat styling.

If you must heat style (hey, I feel ya!), use a protectant! This Wella one is my personal favourite, I’ve been using it for a while now.

Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun.

Just like your skin, the sun isn’t necessarily good for your hair colour. The sun rays will bleach your hair which makes your colour fade. Try wearing a hat if you’ll be spending a long time in the sun. Highly recommended applying conditioner to your hair or even a leave in spray!
