How To Use Tea Tree Oil For Hair

tea-tree-oil

Tea tree oil has been used for thousands of years but has only recently started to become popular as a natural hair care product. The practice of using tea tree oil started in Australia, by native aborigines and was used to cure cuts, burns, boils and for use as an antiseptic. Tea tree oil is extracted from a narrow-leaved tree native to the northeast coast of New South Wales, Australia. Tea tree oil is an amazing natural beauty product that should be a staple in any woman’s beauty arsenal.  Tea tree oil is a great natural choice for cleansing hair because it won’t cause damage or dryness. It can be used for a number of hair and beauty problems and can help to reduce the effects of hair loss and promote hair growth. Tea tree oil is becoming more and more popular as a natural hair care product. It can be used alone or paired with a gentle shampoo, like HAIRFINITY Gentle Cleanse Shampoo to gently cleanse and moisturize the hair and scalp.

You can use tea tree oil to maintain a healthy scalp, but it is also important to foster scalp health from the inside. HAIRFINITY Healthy Hair Vitamins are formulated with hair specific nutrients that will promote hair that is healthier and more vibrant.

The 7 Best Hair Mask Recipes For Every Hair Type

H_October_title_English

We all want lustrous, silky locks, no matter what the length, style, or texture of our hair. But considering the torture we put out hair through with heat styling, harsh chemicals, and even the heat of the sun, can we even hope for healthy hair? Of course you can, and we’re here to help by giving you a better understanding of the difference between conditioners and masks we’ve also collected some of the best DIY hair mask recipes to restore the vibrancy and manageability of your tresses.

 The Difference Between Hair Masks and Conditioners

Most people believe using a conditioner every day or every other day is enough to keep their hair in good shape. Not true. Daily conditioners only work on the surface of the hair, while deep conditioning treatments such as hair masks and protein treatments are designed to go to work on the internal structure of the hair.

Deep conditioning is essential to good scalp and hair health, especially dry, damaged, or chemically processed (relaxed or dyed) hair. A hair mask delivers powerful nourishment to your follicles scalp and hair. However, a hair mask alone is not enough to maintain healthy hydrated hair. You should also be getting all of the hair-specific nutrients your hair needs through your diet. Using a hair vitamin such as Hairfinity can help fill in the gaps left by your diet to ensure that your hair is nourished from the inside out. In addition to your diet, it is also important to use products designed to be gentle and promote hair health such as HAIRFINITY Haircare products.

Hair Care Tips for Porosity Repair

 

H_September_title_English

 

Have you ever been told by a hair care professional that you have porous hair? Are you even aware what porosity is and how to identify it. We generally think of our hair in terms of length, thickness, and overall health. We rarely seek out hair care options for managing the porosity of our hair. In a previous post we explained the importance of maintaining a smooth closed cuticle, well your hair becomes porous when those cuticles have been open for too long and damage has occurred. High porosity is a symptom of cuticle damage and exists when the hair’s cuticles do not close properly and remain open. This causes your hair to absorb too much water, while at the same time not holding the right level of moisture. You can see this when highly porous hair becomes very dry. Certain hair types are more prone to a higher degree of porosity than others, but that doesnt mean that you cant work to minimize the level of porosity in your hair. Dont know how to determine that? There is a simple test that you can do at home to understand whether or not your hair is porous.

At-Home Porosity Test

  • Place a hair that has shed naturally (do not pull it out or cut it) into a glass of room temperature water. The degree to which your hair sinks in the water shows how porous your hair is or is not. Hair that has a high level of porosity will sink, a normal level will float in the water, and hair with low porosity will remain unmoved on top of the water.

Dont have a glass of water handy?

  • Try rubbing thumb and index finger along a strand of hair moving from the end to the root. If you feel the strand to be smooth you have low porosity hair, a bumpy ride indicates high porosity and cuticle damage.

Now that youve tested your hair, what is the verdict? Is your hair highly porous – if the answer is yes dont grab the scissors. We can help you get your hair back to healthy with a combination of hair care tips and an improved regimen that includes HAIRFINITY healthy hair vitamins your hair will become healthier and more manageable over time.

You’ve washed and styled your hair exactly like the girl did in the video that your friend sent you last week. But instead of the beautiful, smooth, shiny curls that the video ended with –  all you’re left with is frizzy hair. It happens all the time, but you’re usually between salon visits and you want your hair to look great but, you don’t have the time or money to make an unplanned trip to the salon. Don’t be discouraged, with a better understanding of how to best repair and prevent frizzy hair you’ll be able to master those DIY styling techniques in no time.

Frizz occurs when the cuticle layer of your hair is raised, allowing moisture to pass through and swell the strands. As a result, your hair appears dry and frizzy instead of smooth and defined. In general, curly hair tends to have more frizz than straight hair because of dehydration in the strands, which leaves it more vulnerable to frizzing. Whether your hair is curly, straight, natural, or chemically processed, we’ve all had to battle frizzy hair at one time or another. It is important to note that all frizzy hair is not created equal. There are many culprits of frizzy hair and a few different ways that your hair can appear to be frizzy. The most common types of frizz are:

Carrier and Essential Oils

 

essentialoils

 

Knowing the difference between various types of oils can help you choose the right ones for your needs, especially if you love mixing up your own natural hair products at home.

What’s the Difference? 

Carrier oils are derived from plants. They’re fatty in nature and usually come from the seeds or nuts. They don’t often have a strong scent. It’s perfectly fine to use carrier oils all by themselves, although blending them with other oils is also acceptable. These oils can go bad or rancid after a period of time. Although you may only use a small amount of a carrier oil depending on the specific use, you’ll still use much more of these oils at a time than essential ones.

Essential oils come from plants or fruits, too, but are concentrated, and much more fragranced because they’re derived from the aromatic parts of the plant, such as the flowers, leaves or peel. When mixing these into oil blends, you only use a small number of drops, anywhere from one to a dozen or so. Because you use such minimal amounts, even a small bottle of essential oil lasts a long time for the average consumer. These oils don’t go rancid, but may lose their effectiveness and aroma after a number of years.

While you’ll find some carrier oils stored in glass bottles, they’re usually sold in plastic containers. Essential oils are stored in glass due to their high concentration levels.
