LET’S TALK DETOX (RESTORATION). WHAT IS IT? WHY DOES IT HAPPEN?

Detox is a real thing! It’s important you are aware of what Detox is, its symptoms and how to work your way through it.

Detox means that your hair is getting rid of something that doesn’t belong there. It goes through a Restoration Phase.

Symptoms include: Tangling, dryness, stickiness, oil production, greasiness, itchy scalp, flaky scalp, red bumps, frizzy hair and shedding.

You may not even realize how much build build-up you have in your hair or on your scalp. It can be caused from things as simple as environment, medication, chemicals or hair care products that you have used at some point. Silicons, sulfates, salts, parabens – even though you don’t see them, they can be hidden on your hair shaft and scalp.

Think of it like when you are cutting something out of your diet, like alcohol or sugar. Your body has to fight off the detox symptoms. Not in one or two days, but over a period of time.
Some people experience really bad cases of detox and some don’t experience detox at all. For those who do, the process can be frustrating.

Monat ingredients are designed to exfoliate the scalp and root shaft. You’ll want to get all of these things off of your scalp and hair so that our active ingredients will nourish your hair.

What can you do?

* Make sure that you are using your shampoo correctly. This “shampoo twice” thing is not just so that you will use more product. It’s actually very important to follow the instructions carefully so you can get the results expected. (see attached image)

* Shampooing with our Black Shampoo may help. It has several essential oils that are clarifying and can help cut through that barrier and dissolve build up faster.

* The best thing to do is a pre-shampoo treatment or overnight treatment with our Rejuveniqe Oil. It has a unique molecular structure that allows the ingredient to penetrate faster and deeper. You can do a ‘pre-treatment’ by applying a couple of drops (or dropper full) of the Rejuveniqe Oil to your hands and run through your hair. Concentrate on the scalp and on the areas that are giving you the most problem. Leave on for 20 minutes and then shampoo as directed. OR – apply the oil and leave it on over night! Shampoo as directed in the morning.

Detox doesn’t have to be a bad experience. It can be a way to solidify the need for MONAT.

I hope you got great value from this document. If you got value, feel free to share it with your friends.

STICK WITH IT! It will be worth it. 🙂

***Note everyone experiences detox (restoration) the same way but these are some of the things you may experience. ****

Lucky for me I did not experience very many of these symptoms.

You CAN Make Thin Hair Look Thicker! Here’s how.

If you’ve been suffering through a lifetime of limp waves and lifeless, stick-to-my-forehead bangs, take heart. It is possible to transform your flat strands and add bombshell volume to your fine hair with a few tips and styling techniques. Read on!

Dry Your Hair the Right Way
“Rough” dry your hair before styling. Too much brushing can make your hair appear more limp. Dry your hair at least 90 percent with your hands before pulling out your round brush.
Be Careful with Product Placement
Watch where you put your product. You should never apply product to your roots unless it’s a root-volume spray like  Reshape Root Lifter. When you apply product, start at the ends since they absorb more.
Go Easy On Conditioner
Also, don’t over-condition your hair since heavy conditioners can weigh it down. Use a lightweight leave-in one like Restore Leave In Conditioner, only on your ends and every other time you shampoo.
Cut and Style for Maximum Heft!
Then, when it comes to cutting and styling your hair, strategic haircuts and hairstyles will trick onlookers into believing you have more hair than you know what to do with! For example, long layers can add movement and volume. Shorter cuts also work great because then hair isn’t weighed down. Blunt collarbone-length cuts with just a few face framing layers are another good cut for thin hair. Bangs are also a possibility. It just takes a spritz of dry shampoo like The Champ Dry Shampoo to keep them from separating and looking too thin and wispy.
Shoulder-Length Blunt Cut
You can have your hair shoulder-length by getting your hair cut in a blunt style. This will make your hair appear thicker. To maintain and amplify fullness, use a volumizing shampoo and conditioner like  Revive Shampoo and Revitalize Conditioner.
Deep Side Part
If you want your hair long, go with a deep side part. This pretty much “lumps” your hair together on one side, which gives off an illusion of volume.
Shag with Bangs
This layered haircut works great for thin hair. The shaggy layers with blunt ends are easy to curl or air dry to get summer-perfect beachy waves. Use Tousled Texturizing Mist to really get your waves beachy! Add in some bangs and you’ve got even more shape and style!
Choppy Pixie
You can always do the one cut that never goes out of style—the choppy pixie. Oh so short, it’s very sassy and makes thin hair look thick and full. Don’t forget to dip your fingers into some Restyle Instant Sculpting Taffy and then pull at some pieces to make them go in a windswept style…or every which way!

HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU HEARD THAT YOU SHOULD DRINK 8 GLASSES OF WATER A DAY?

The Health and Beauty Benefits of Water

How many times have you heard that you should drink 8 glasses of water a day? It’s common knowledge but do we really know why we need to drink that much water? Listen up!
Your body is mostly water and comprises about 60 percent of your body weight. According to the Mayo Clinic, water:
  • Eliminates wastes through urination, perspiration and bowel movements
  • Keeps your temperature normal
  • Lubricates and cushions joints
  • Protects sensitive tissues

Can dehydration cause hair loss?

While short-term dehydration will not harm your hair, chronic dehydration can cause hair loss. … Since your hair follicles lack water, they will stop producing new hair. If you’re chronically dehydrated, your follicles won’t grow enough hair to replace the strands that are shed naturally, resulting in hair thinning.

Water and other natural remedies can help you hair loss.

Besides water purification, vitamins and lifestyle changes have also been shown to encourage hair growth and even reduce hair loss. Below are several tips on how to keep your tresses healthy and vibrant through nutrition and drinking water.

Natural ways to grow hair and reduce hair loss

  1. Protein: Hair is made of protein so a protein deficiency can cause hair loss. Add protein to the diet by including meat, tofu, dairy, or protein shakes.
  2. Iron: The mineral iron helps increase circulation in the scalp which will fuel hair growth. Foods that have high iron content include liver, apricots, and raisins.
  3. Vitamin A: Helps create vibrant hair because it works with the fat synthesis in the hair follicles and spurs hair growth. Vitamin A can be found in carrots, kale, eggs, and squash.
  4. Vitamin B: Niacin (B3) promotes blood circulation to your scalp thereby encouraging hair growth. Biotin and the complex B vitamins are needed to grow hair. Vitamin B can be found in whole grains, fruit, eggs, fish, meat, and milk.
  5. Water: The hair shaft is comprised of one quarter of water. Drink at least 4 to 8 cups of water a day to stay hydrated and grow healthy hair.
  6. Reduce alcohol & cigarettes: Drinking alcohol reduces hair growth and smoking cigarettes reduces the blood flow to the scalp.

There are various benefits of drinking water for hair growth. Those are as follows:

1. Water is the root source of energy for each and every cell of our body. It includes those cells too, that are responsible for hair growth and its health.

2. Water nurtures cells and provides them required hair vitamins.

3. It generates magnetic and electrical energy which is considered as a core power to sustain life. This is done through a process called hydrolysis.

4. The roots of the hair and our scalp have many energy-sensitive and photosensitive nerve endings. Water activates all these nerve endings and other sensors in our skin and scalp that enhances the natural vitality of hair roots.

5. Drinking enough water can also help you get rid of dandruff and hair thinning problem.

It is truly said that water is life. Not only our skin and health, but water promote hair growth too and tend to fight with other hair and scalp challenges. And even mild dehydration can sap energy from the hair roots and result into hair loss.

But did you also know all the wonderful things water can do for your looks?Enough H2O does more than keep you hydrated. It helps your body flush out toxins more efficiently. The result? Fresher and more radiant-looking skin! Water helps your skin keep its natural elasticity and suppleness.

Make sure you stay hydrated to prevent hair loss..

Correcting the factors above will usually stop hair loss.  While remedies for the hair sometimes work, the most reliable way to stop hair loss, in my experience, is with a properly designed nutritional balancing program and use the right hair care products.  It only takes 23 seconds for hair products to get into your system so ask yourself one question, “Whats in my hair products that could harm me?’

What’s the Difference? Hydrating vs. Moisturizing the Hair….

 

38811524_1486136408153030_911350244409606144_n

 

Since Monat has come out with yet another new product and I was confused at first what was the difference between the too, I decided to do some research and I just had to share this with you too.  Because if I was confused some others maybe are too. Especially if your new to the concept of  healthy hair.  I never gave my hair really one thought before I started my business about hydration or moisturizing.   As long as it looked good to me I was blind to the rest of my hair needs.   So let me share with you what I have found in regards to this topic.

Imagine a plant growing in a pot. What would happen if you only spray water on the leaves every day and never poured water into the dirt for the roots to absorb? The plant would shrivel up and die right?

With that illustration in mind, let’s now examine the definitions of Hydration and Moisture as it pertains to our hair.

What’s the Difference?

Hydrating the Hair– The process of using humectants, proteins, amino acids and critical vitamins that penetrate the hair fiber infusing and improving the absorption of water and nutrients so that the hair holds and retains moisture.

To supply water to (a person, for example) in order to restore or maintain fluid balance.
Each pore on the surface of the skin is an opening to a canal called a follicle. The follicle also contains a hair and an oil gland (sebaceous gland). The oil gland keeps the skin lubricated and feeds the hair strand that it is attached to.

Increasing your water intake will not only make you feel better, but it will also hydrate your hair from within which is where your hair comes from.
If you are not drinking enough water, no doubt, you have dry, brittle, lifeless hair.
Hydration has to begin inside of your body.

Moisturizing the Hair– The process of using butters and oils to coat the OUTER surface of the hair fiber sealing and locking down the hair shaft so moisture can not get in or out of the fiber.

Water or other liquid diffuses in a small quantity as vapor, within a solid, or condenses on a surface.
This is what is being done when you spray water on a plant or as it pertains to this topic, on your hair. Spraying water or water based products on your hair is not enough to support a healthy head of hair.

Moisturizing your hair every day is pointless if your hydration is not up to par. Once the water has evaporated you are left with the same strands of lifeless hair.

Simply Put….FIRST you HYDRATE the hair to penetrate, absorb & nourish the hair from within. THEN you seal and lock down the hair shaft with a MOISTURIZER to keep the moisture in the hair.  Moisturized hair is happy hair.

So what does this mean for your current hair regimen?

If your hair feels chronically dry, wonky, brittle, rough, or just not like itself, and your products aren’t working (even spritzing water and and other concoctions doesn’t help), your issue may be hydration levels in your hair.

This brings us to what products should you use to hydrate your hair and what product should I use to moisturize your hair.

It will feel tacky at first but dries super soft with a nice, light hold.  * Scrunch hair using Taffy.  * Run fingers through hair to relax the curls from more wave-curl vs spiral curt!  * You can also add 1 or 2 drops of Rejuvenique Oil for added shine and smoothness as a  finisher.  * Mostly used as a dry finisher but some curly girls use while hair is wet (which is how I use it.)  * It gives curls that extra shape.  # style as usual.

Are These 3 Harmful Foods Damaging Your Body?

I went on Google this morning and typed in Trending..  I found this article that said “Are These 3 Harmful Foods Damaging Your Body?” Well since I have been trying to lose about 10 lbs ( I gained when I was transitioning into a new life change. )  I am settled now and I have been getting back into my  exercise routine again.  I can’t jog or run because of my bad ankles  but I do like to walk and I do have a video that I  exercise too.   Plus I stay busy.. I also take my dogs for walks and I try my best, weather permitting, to do this everyday..

Back to about this article I found.  Dr. Lee is addressing 3 harmful foods that we all eat and is telling all. She is a doctor of internal medicine, physician nutrition and obesity medicine specialist.   So that leads me to believe in what she is telling us in this video she has made has merit.  Dr. Lee is taking a life change approach..
