Another 5 Hair Myths Answered!

Here are another 5 hair myths proven wrong!

1. If you have greasy hair skip conditioning

This is totally false. Your hair gets greasy because too much sebum is being produced from the tissues of the scalp. Instead of skipping the conditioning try a clarifying treatment like clarpHx.

2. The sun is the best way to lighten your hair.

True it can lighten your hair but it is not healthy. Just like how the sun burns your skin it burns your scalp. which causes damage to your hair and head. Instead of letting the sun damage your scalp use an all organic lifting cream. This will lighten your hair instead of letting the sun do it for you.

3. Lather, rinse, then repeat

You shouldn’t have to repeat while shampooing. If there is a lot of product being used or an huge amount of buildup then you should. But most of the time you shouldn’t. Use a mild shampoo this will eliminate irritation. Also lather gently to avoid breakage.

4. Sleeping with your hair down will make it grow faster

This is not true. It is usually recommended when thinning or hair loss is occurring. This is recommended because when sleeping with your hair up it causes tension which can pull hair out of your head. If you prefer to have your hair up then wear a loose ponytail. A loose ponytail can eliminate extra breakage and hair loss.

5. Your eyebrows need to match your hair color

The current trend is stating your eyebrows should be darker than your hair. But this isn’t always the case. Most of the time your hair color does not match your eyebrows. This is purely based on genetics and whether or not you get them colored.

How do i Keep my Feet Healthy at Home?

Now not every person has the time and the money to go to a salon every single week for a pedicure. If you do have the money that’s great but, what if you don’t have the money? Or the time?

Here’s are a few tips to keep your feet healthy at home.

1. Keep your feet clean and dry

When you take a bath or shower scrub those feet. Leaving bacteria and dirt from your day can cause fungal infections. Always dry your feet well when getting out of the shower. Fungus lives off of moisture so leaving your feet wet is also another way to get that fungus that you don’t want.

2. Examine your feet for problems

Always keep a lookout for anything out of the ordinary on your feet. When drying off your feet after a shower look for scaling on the soles of your feet. And also in between your toes for peeling areas this could mean athletes foot. Take a good long look at your nails. Nail discoloration could mean foot fungus. If you have diabetes you will have to have a foot inspection problem everyday since you have a higher risk of foot sores and infections.

3. Cut your toenails properly

Just because your toenails are growing doesn’t mean you go willy nilly with the clippers and cut whatever you want. Cut your nails straight across and try to avoid near the edges and the skin this can cause painful ingrown nails.

4.Protect your feet

Try to wear shower shoes to the gym, school locker rooms and even the pool. These are breeding ground for foot fungus.

5. See a doctor

If you see a problem that consists like swelling, redness or discoloration. See a doctor do not try to treat it yourself this might make the problem worse. See a podiatric physician they can help with all your foot problems!

What Does a Pedicure Include?

Heres what a pedicure at one of our Salons in Clearwater, St. Petersburg and Largo includes:

Foot Soak

A foot soak will get rid of the dirt and bacteria already on the foot and cleanse it for the nails shaping process and the all organic exfoliation.

Nail Shaping

Nails shaping is an easy way to eliminate fungus and ingrown nails. Getting a nail shaping on your toes and fingers 3-4 times a month will eliminate early diseases, reshape nails so no dead split nails are grown and make both your feet and hands look amazing.

Foot Exfoliation

A foot exfoliation will eliminate dry, flaky, and itchy feet. Exfoliation is usually after a foot soak since the scrub is more effective on pores that have already been opened up. Our all organic exfoliant will cleanse the foot and eliminate any and all potentials diseases or infections that have built up.

Cuticle Remover

A cuticle remover will help prevent bacteria and other nasty stuff like dirt from going under the nails and causing more damage.

Polish

And of course the polish!  We use a set of polishes that is formaldehyde free and all organic.  This allows the polish to be much gentler on both your feet still allowing them to look absolutely beautiful.

Healthy Nails begin with Healthy Cuticles!

Many people ask:  How can I help my nails be healthier and stronger? 

One of the best ways to help your nails get and remain healthy and strong is to use cuticle oil routinely.

Cuticle oil is used to moisturize the cuticle, skin and nail area. It can protect the cuticle and nail against damage and improve the health and appearance of the cuticles and nails.  Cuticle oil should not be used as a first-line of defense against dryness,  but rather to fix extremely dry, cracked nails.

Your nails could be healthy too!  This starts with cuticle oil!  It is great for your cuticles and also helps with overall nail care.  The moisture of the oil to the nail keeps it soft, less brittle, and therefor less cracking and chipping.

Intuition Nail CareCuticle oil, available at our Salon in Clearwater,  is made from select natural oils and is designed specifically to help keep your nails from getting brittle and weak.

How to Keep Your Nails Looking Beautiful and Healthy!

Here are three expert tips on keeping your nails healthy and beautiful.

1. Keep your nails clean and dry.

Of course it may seem obvious, but washing your hands and nails and keeping them clean is vital to their health!   But did you know you should also definitely dry them afterwards?  Leaving them wet can cause split fingernails!

When washing dishes,  scrubbing floors or using harsh chemicals ALWAYS wear gloves!  This will prevent any bacteria from gaining a foothold and growing under your fingernails.   Protecting your fingers whenever possible will allow for you to have and keep healthy nails.

2. Practice good hygiene

A weekly manicure to clean up the cuticles will also prevent ingrown nails and infections.

3. Use moisturizer and apply a hardening treatment

When using hand lotion or a moisturizer, also rub it into the nails and cuticles.  This will help your skin and nails feel soft and moisturized.  Applying a hardening polish to your nails may also help prevent damage from the everyday activities of your busy lifestyle.

How to Keep your Skin looking Gorgeous after a Facial!

You got a facial,  awesome!  But what can you do to keep your skin this gorgeous longer afterwards?

We usually advise that women get a facial at least once every three months to keep their skin healthy and beautiful.  Facials remove dead skin cells, clears the skin pores,  scrubs and exfoliates the skin.  A facial is thus very important to maintain the glow of your face. In short, a facial is a process where the skin is steamed, scrubbed and massaged. One of the other benefits of having facial is, it removes blackheads that look ugly on the face.

Before getting a facial, you need to prepare your skin for it. For example, removing makeup, knowing your skin type and any specific skin problems,  etc.
Moreover, you should not go for a facial with styled or freshly washed hair as a facial can make the hair get a bit oily.   So it is best to wash your hair after the facial.  However, after the 90 minutes session with your skin, you need to follow some tips for after care, so here are the skin care tips for you to follow after getting a facial.

Avoid the Sun:
It is a very important skin care tip to follow after getting a facial. The UV rays of the sun can damage the skin and also leave scars of burned skin.
Drink lots of water: This is another skin care tip that you must follow after a facial. Drink lots of water to stay hydrated and get a glowing skin. This should indeed be a skin care tip that you must regularly follow.

Avoid Makeup: After getting a facial, avoid makeup. It is ideally good to keep makeup minimal after getting a facial. Makeup blocks the skin pores and also damages it. So after the facial, do not apply makeup.

No Sunbed: For the next 28 hours, you should avoid sunbed as it can be harmful for your skin. So, prefer leaving your face as it is. You can wash with water to remove excess oil and dirt from the skin.

Skip Face Wash: For the next 24 hours, you should not wash your face with a face wash. The chemicals in the face wash can be harmful for the skin.  Just use plain water for a day.

Rinse With Water: Make this a habit for proper skin care. Washing your face with water keeps the skin hydrated, supple and clean. You must wash your face with water 3-4 hours after the facial is done.

This will remove excess oil, dirt from the face and also cleans the skin pores. Try these skin care tips after getting a facial. To maintain the glowing and supple skin, drink lots of water and get rid of bad habits like smoking and drinking.

Use Sunscreen.  Protect your skin from UV rays of the sun by wearing a hat and applying sunscreen regularly. It is important you book for a facial once in two months or maximum within three months to keep your skin clean and glowing.

When you come into our Salon in Largo ( our Salons in Clearwater or St. Pete!) to receive a restorative facial, ask your Aesthetician for additional tips and tricks to keep your skin looking fresh and healthy.
