How to wash your hair properly
Use a shampoo and conditioner that’s made for your hair type. If your hair is dry, choose moisturizing products. If you color your hair, opt for color-safe formulas. “Volumizing” shampoos tend to leave hair drier, so they’re best for fine hair types that would be weighed down by more moisturizing products. How often you wash your hair depends on your hair type, too. If you have oily or fine hair, you may need to shampoo daily. Normal or dry hair can lather up closer to three times a week. Filter your water since it “removes rust and minerals from water that can dull color, and deposit on blondes making them dark and muddy.”
Is semi-permanent hair dye right for me?
Semi-permanent hair color does not contain peroxide so it can not lift the hair, therefore it can only make the hair darker and not lighter. The color will only last about six to twelve shampoos because it only deposits the hair color on the outermost layer of the hair. This is a good choice to try if you are afraid you may not like the color. Also, semi-permanent will enhance the shine and condition of the hair since it is not lifting.
Is demi-permanet hair dye right for me?
Demi-Permanent hair color contains low amounts of peroxide which unlike semi-permanent, it can lighten the hair slightly. Demi-permanent deposits the color between the cuticle and cortex therefore making it last longer, anywhere from 12 – 26 washes.

What are some benefits of steam treatments?
Well Heres 7: Steaming Your Hair: When you steam your hair you are creating a humid environment that is just right for moisturizing as opposed to the natural dry air all around us. (especially in the winter time) Steaming helps to replenish what may be sucked out during our every day routines. Steaming doesn’t have to be too time consuming or done every day, but you will start to see many differences and benefits in your hair if you decide to take the extra step. Increases Moisture Retention: Moisture retention is a major deal in your natural hair journey. Retaining moisture is crucial to accomplishing amazing styles such as twist outs, bantu knot outs, roller sets…etc. Why is this? Because when your hair has moisture you are able to obtain and KEEP definition. So instead of a giant puff of frizz and fuzz you will be able to keep up that day 2, 3, 4, 5 day hair! Enhanced curls: If you are looking for loads of definition, the increase in moisture retention will also help to reshape and boost your curls. It will not change your hair texture (if done for the correct amount of time- no more than thirty minutes) but it will make your hair look different/better. Strengthening Hair: Steaming your hair helps create stronger strands which are more “elastic” The elasticity of your hair will help you keep an eye on the health of your hair. What this means is do your curls snap back to their original state after they are stretched. Steaming provides the moisture needed to keep your hair in a strong elastic state. This is key for those who are struggling in their transition (as we all do) because it may be difficult to calculate your elasticity when the line of demarcation is weak. Building strength in your hair will help in styling and length retention as well. Refresh/Rejuvenate: You don’t need to have a wet head all day whether you have your hair out or wearing a protective styling. Steaming allows a session of remoisturization without having to re-wet your entire head. Opens the cuticle of the hair: This may be the best and most important part of steaming. Because you can steam for different purposes you will be able to lift/open the cuticle for varies reasons as well. For example I’ve been steaming during my deep conditioning treatment therefore allowing more of the conditioner to get into the strands of my hair. With the cuticle opened from the warm vapor being placed on it your hair is getting more nutrients than it would if you just tried to simply refresh your curls/or style by adding the conditioner. I love the fact that the steamer allows for all the “good stuff” of a hair product to get in before I rinse it off. Easier stretching/manageability: Steaming can be used for various purposes. A steamer makes your hair more manageable and easier to detanlge. With that step becoming easier stretching your hair becomes a breeze as well, therefore cutting down on styling/detangling time during your wash days or styling moments. Best part… you get to use less product which will save you money in the long run. Promotes Growth Say what: It moisturizes the scalp which is the canvas for healthy hair growth. A steamer will help to increase the flow of natural oils on your scalp while providing a moisturized atmosphere for your hair/scalp to flourish. Adding this into your natural hair regimen will help you head in the right direction in your natural hair journey! How Often Should I Get A Scalp Scrub? Well, that depends on your scalp condition but at least once out of the month around dryer/colder weather (Normal-Dryonce out of the month Dry-Itchy/Flaky twice out of the month or alternate between scalp scrub and a hot essential oil steam treatment.)
