12 Cures for Lifeless Hair

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.

10 Reasons to Wear AIRess Extensions

There are no other hair extensions like it anywhere else, so we can see why you could be unsure as to why our AIRess Collection is so great. We are here to give you all the amazing reasons we love (and know you will love) this exclusive hair extension collection!

1. It is made especially for thin/fine textured hair

fullsizerender-8

With only 70 grams in weight, the AIRess Extensions have plenty of hair on each weft to add volume and length. With a traditional set of clip-in hair extensions, the weight and thickness may just be too much for people with fine hair to handle. Some extensions can weigh more than the hair that is even on your head, therefore making it very obvious that it is not your natural hair. The weft on each piece in this collection is virtually invisible. It is airy and lightweight so that it is never bulky and you do not ever have to worry about a weft bulging out from underneath your hair, making it even remotely visible that you don’t “naturally” have this gorgeous hair already!

2. There is nothing else like it anywhere

The AIRess Collection is exclusive to us! There is nothing out there that people with fine/thin hair can get to  give them natural-looking length and/or volume. Every other set of extensions are the big va-va-voom movie star hair, intended to give as much length and thickness possible. The founder of Queen C designed a set that is perfect for anyone wanting natural looking hair, whether that may be because that person wasn’t born with great hair, or even for the person who went through chemo and their hair never grew back the same again. She covered every scenario possible, and created this line in hopes that we have hair extensions to suit everyone’s needs and desires.

3. They take less time to put in

Since each AIRess set only comes with 5 pieces (most sets including our Crown Jewels and Balayage Collections come with 10 pieces), they take literally half the time it would normally take to put them in! Who doesn’t love cutting their get-ready time in half?!

4. They are great for a pop of color

fullsizerender-12

Purple – Shop Here

Want a bold color, but wouldn’t dare putting your hair through the damage? Our AIRess Collection offers fun colors so you don’t have to put your hair through any damage at all! You can wear one piece at a time, or the whole set depending on how much color you want to show through that day!

*Our bold colors are: Purple, Teal, Silver, Peach, Denim, Coral, and Hot Pink

5.You can change up your style

fullsizerender-9

The more hair you have, the more you can do with it! The AIRess Collection is perfect for styling your hair in as many ways you want! The possibilities are endless, all while still having the perfect amount of hair to do it with- not too much, not too little!

6.You can mix and match different colors

fullsizerender-13

Highlight/Lowlight (Beach Blonde/Dirty Blonde) – Shop Here

Are you between two different colors? Maybe you think you don’t lean necessarily towards just one particular shade. You can get two sets, and mix and match the colors. You can do more of one and less of the other, or even wear both full sets for a va-va-voom look if that is what you’re wanting that day! Your style is up to you, and we always want you to be able to achieve anything you want!

7.They are great for special occasions

fullsizerender-11

Highlight/Lowlight (Ash Blonde/Dirty Blonde) – Shop Here

Not sure you would want to wear extensions every day, but have a special occasion coming up where you want to wear an updo, or a style that you couldn’t normally pull off with your own hair? The AIRess Collection is perfect for that! Plus, they could potentially last forever when you wear them only for special occasions!

8.They are cheaper than other collections!

Since the AIRess Extensions only have 5 pieces, you’re only paying for 5 pieces! An entire set is only $119.99!! Talk about beauty on a budget..

9. They can camouflage a bad haircut

We have all been there at some point or another. A bad haircut can send our confidence crashing down faster than our freshly cut hair hit the floor. The great news is that a set of AIRess Extensions can not onlycamouflage your haircut for the amount of time it needs to grow back out, but it is an amazing confidence booster! Warning: after getting the AIRess Extensions, you may be hooked on them, even after your hair grows back out!

10.Less Hair = Less Maintenance

Once again, since this exclusive collection isn’t bulky like the traditional clip-in extensions, you do not have as much to deal with! For example, it takes less time to style them, shampoo them, less time for them to dry, ect.

There are so many advantages in our AIRess Collection, and we are proud to say we offer something for every hair type! This is just one of our many collections, and we are extremely proud to be one-of-a-kind when it comes to the design of our AIRess Clip-In Extensions!
