Tips & Remedies for Hair Problems

Many hair related problems like hair loss, rough and dull hair, split ends and breakage,  arise due to lack of proper hair care.  But there are also illnesses and treatments that no product or treatment can prevent hair loss during or after. Fortunately, there are things you can do to help prevent breakage, dry and dull hair, and also as if you have had hair loss due to illness, there are ways to help your hair grow back.

  •  One of the first steps in hair-care is your diet and the two most important things in your diet are iron and protein. Hair cells are the fastest growing cells in the body, they are also the first ones to be affected if you don’t eat right.  Hair is not required for our survival so with deficiencies, hair is the first to suffer.    Eat a healthy, well-balanced diet of proper food and consume excess water to prevent hair breakage. Lean proteins, fruits, raw vegetables, whole grains, legumes, omega-3 fatty acids found in salmon or flaxseed oil and dairy products will keep hair healthy.  Click Here to view our previous article on Vitamins and Nutrients with recipes.

 

  • Drink Green tea.   Drink at least 24 oz. of green tea every day to help your scalp grow hair back. Green tea lowers the levels of dihydrotestosterone, or DHT, in your body.  DHT is one on the main culprits to hair loss, so drinking tea can help your hair grow back in a natural way.  Scientists have found that green tea contains the antioxidant “EGCG” (or epigallocatechin gallate) which has the ability to stimulate hair growth. In addition, by applying green tea directly on the scalp, it results in a significant elongation of the hair follicle.
    The anti-inflammatory properties in green tea could help stop hair loss and even promote the growth of new hair. That means that you can use it to cleanse your scalp and fight scalp infections that may weaken your hair roots. Remember a healthy scalp makes it more possible for hair to grow.

 Try this scalp treatment:  Wash hair as normal, and then message COOL, freshly                      brewed green tea into your scalp. Leave on for 10 minutes,  rinse with cool water. Repeat 2 to 3 times a week for a couple of months. This rinse will stimulate your hair follicles and help prevent scalp problems like dandruff.  Added bonus: Sprinkle the spent green tea leaves them around your plants and watch them bloom.

  • Drink plenty of water. If you are dehydrated, you don’t have enough water in your body to keep it moisturized. If your body is not moisturized properly, it cannot get the nutrients it needs to grow hair back on your scalp. MayoClinic.com says you should drink at least eight 8-oz. glasses of water every day.

Hate water?  Slice or cube up some fresh organic fruit and drop it into your water for a little flavor and color. Berries, mango, watermelon, pineapple, kiwi and orange are just a few of the colorful fruits which make great additions to a glass of cool water.

 

There are also things you can do daily to improve the condition of your hair.

  • Brush wet hair with extreme care.   Hair is fragile and prone to breakage when wet. Use a detangler brush and brush the hair starting at the ends and work your way up.  Brush your hair as gently as possible.  Click Here to purchase the Queen C Detangler Brush

 

  • Trim your hair every 6 to 8 weeks to get rid of split ends. Cut about 1/4 of an inch of your hair to avoid the split ends from moving up the hair shaft and eventually snapping completely off.

 

  • Don’t shampoo your hair everyday, every two to three days is best. If you shampoo your hair every day, you’re removing the sebum, then the oil glands compensate by producing more oil.  Apply conditioner on the ends, trying to avoid the scalp.  Rinse the conditioner with cold water, this helps  to close the cuticle and seal in moisture from the conditioner — which helps your hair look shiny and healthy.

 

  • Use a Deep conditioner twice a month.  Even though you condition your hair after you shampoo, a deep conditioner does just that, it penetrates deep into the hair. We love the Beauty & Pin-ups Fearless Treatment Masque and we are also big fans of DIY Hair Masques.  Click Here to view DIY Hair Masque recipes.

 

  • Don’t over use hot appliances. Also, invest in good tools, even though they are pricier, in the long run they last longer and are definitely better on your hair  . Make sure they offer different heat settings and, in the case of flat irons, display the temperature.  Hair dryers should have a diffuser to help distribute heat more evenly.  When possible, it is best to let your hair dry naturally.  Blow-drying can cause roughness, dryness, and loss of color.   When using a straightening iron, curling iron, etc.  make sure your hair is 100% dry.  Putting these hot tools on even damp hair will cause extreme damage.

If you have fine and/or thin hair by nature or by illness, you can add some volume to your hair.  

  • If you need a little uplifting help, message a small amount of mousse into your scalp when it’s still damp and let air dry or blow dry after.

 

  • Dry your roots first, lifting your hair up or turning your head upside down.  But turn your head back up before completely dry.  If not, this will emphasize a bad growth pattern.

 

  • Dry shampoo can be your best friend! It gives you a nice lift at the roots. My favorite Dry Shampoo is Stay Dirty by Beauty & Pin-Ups. This stuff is great for adding volume to your roots on day dirty hair, or even right after a blow-dry and style

 

  • .Clip it in.  If you never thought you could wear hair extensions, think again.   Queen C Hair Extensions offers an Exclusive clip in extension collection called the AIRess Collection.  These exclusive clip ins are super lightweight and made especially for those with fine and/or thin hair.  Made to lay flat against the head, so they are hidden easily.  The clips are  silicone infused with a silicone bar to prevent slipping.   They’re affordable and available at SURVIVORville 2017 and also online at http://www.QueenCHair.com.

Queen C Hair is a proud sponsor of Women Survivors Alliance.  A percentage of proceeds from sells of the AIRess Collection and AIRess Clip & Tie Ponytail Collection are given to WSA.

We are honored to be participating in the makeovers at SURVIVORville 2017.

Queen of the Month

“Whoever said diamonds are a girl’s best friend never owned a dog”

This month (June), our Queen is a friend of the queen herself, a dog lover, and a soon-to-be wife! Who is this catch? Mary Davis is one of the most kind-hearted, sincere people that we have ever met.

mary and dogs.jpg

 

Currently, Mary resides in Hendersonville, Tennessee with her soon-to-be husband and her 3 perfect dogs.

She has worked at Volunteer Veterinary Clinic for 26 years, and loves being around her passion every day…her animals and her man! (Her fiancé is a Veterinarian there)

When we asked her, she reveals that one thing people do not know about her is that she likes research and detective work. Learning about the legal aspect of things has always interested her.

Her favorite things to do are impressive. She loves gardening, meditation, Barre, video games, and cooking.

When asked what she thought of Queen C Hair Extensions, she said “I think they are far superior to any other hair extensions I have seen. They are softer and the wefts are thinner, yet stronger. They are easy to put in, easy to cover and hide the wefts, and they look and FEEL like my hair!”.

After asking her what the best compliment she has received on her AIRess clip-in Extensions is so far, she told us that “although I have not had them long, I think the best compliment I have gotten is that no one knows that it is NOT my hair!”. She added, “My favorite thing about them is that they look and feel so much like my own hair, only better!”.

Mary

She said that “the best style secret, when it comes to my Queen C Hair Extensions is that you do not have to put all of them in everyday. Depending on how much you want to wear your hair, on any given day (or how much time you have) you can put in one, three, or all of them, and it still looks great!”.

Mary has worn bonded extensions for years (literally), and she wanted to give her hair a break from them, but didn’t want to give up the luxury of thick hair. She has two auto-immune disorders and although her hair grows long, it does not grow thick. She feels as if Queen C Hair Extensions give her the hair she used to have!

We feel honored to have Mary in our Royal Family, and would love to have you in our family as well! If you would like the chance to be the next “Queen of the Month”, all you have to do to enter, is send us at least three photos of you wearing your Queen C Hair to info@queenchair.com. If you are chosen, we will send you a questionnaire to fill out so we can get to know you and your story!

A Day in the Life of a Queen

“Motherhood has the greatest potential influence in human life”

IMG_0312

As far as we are concerned, every woman is a queen. Whether you tap into your inner royalty or not is up to you. We feel as if everyone with Queen C Hair Extensions have already awakened their true self.

Amanda is one of our dear Royal Family members, a mother, and our Queen of the Month of April.

She lives in the gorgeous and growing city of Hendersonville, TN with her husband and two beautiful girls, ages 7 and 4 (who also love wearing their Mini Empress Braided Headbands).

She works as a Registered Dental Assistant at Smile Construction Orthodontics, and has been there since 2002.

Amanda found out about Queen C Hair Extensions through her longtime hairdresser. She fell in love with and decided to get the “Ash Brown/Ash Brown” clip-in extensions from our Balayage Collection.

IMG_1609

She says she absolutely loves her Queen C Hair Extensions and says, “they are gorgeous no matter what style you wear them in; very versatile”.

According to our Queen of the Month, when she is wearing her Queen C Extensions, she is constantly getting stopped and told how beautiful her hair is, and that makers her feel beautiful inside and out”.

When we asked her what her favorite thing about her hair extensions were, Amanda says that she can choose what style she wants each time she puts them in, “and no matter what style I choose for that day, I know I’m going to have a FABULOUS hair day. I also love that they’re so comfortable you can wear them all day”.
