Hair care tips for healthy hair

Hair care tips for healthy hair

We all want beautiful and healthy looking hair. Having a regular hair care routine, using the best hair products and electrical styling products can all help you to achieve healthy and cared for hair.

Below we share some hair care tips and tricks to help you create luscious and healthy hair.

Washing your hair

We all wash our hair, but have we been washing our hair in the correct way? When washing hair it is important to use lukewarm water, as opposed to hot water, as this is less damaging to the hair follicles and the scalp. When using your shampoo it is also important to gently massage the shampoo, don't rub it into your hair or scalp. It is also important to condition your hair, but only apply it to the ends and middle of your hair, not the scalp. If you have hair extensions, then Goldilox shampoo and conditioner is specifically made to help and care for this type of hair.

How to dry your hair

This may seem obvious but the way in which you dry your hair can help to protect it and keep it strong. Always use a micro fibre cloth towel to dry hair, not terry towelling, and do so gently. Dry your hair in a patting motion, don't rub, as this can cause damage to the roots and cause tangles. It's also a good idea to wrap your hair in a towel to absorb maximum moisture, making it quicker to dry and style your hair.

Using heat to dry hair

Always begin with a wide toothed comb to help detangle your hair. Then apply Goldilox heat styling products such as Goldilox hair protection spray, to create a protective barrier. It is safe to use heat appliances to dry and style your hair. Aphrodite hair dryers and the hair straightening brush have been designed to be gentle on your hair and provide low heat levels to dry and style your hair.

Be wedding-ready in minutes with these time-saving tips

Be wedding-ready in minutes with these time-saving tips

There's no doubt that summer is the season of the wedding, with most of July and all of August often fully booked with prospective brides and grooms-to-be looking to make the most of the British summer. But when it comes down to dressing up in the hottest months of the year - especially when you'd much rather be in a bathing suit or shorts - shortening your preparations for each event is a must.

Go for clip-ins

If you're a fan of long, voluminous hair that you feel comfortable in, then clip-in extensions, like the ones we stock from American Pride, offer the best of both worlds. You can style and shape your hair another day, and save yourself time when it comes to actually getting ready by simply clipping and going. Not only is this a great alternative to classic salon extensions, but it also gives you the freedom to utilise those extensions for longer - lasting many happy events and evenings on the dance floor.

Choose gel polish

A perfect manicure is the ideal finishing touch to your most polished wedding look, but ensuring you have no chips, scratches or wear in the run-up to an event can be stressful; or in some cases practically impossible. Choosing Chroma Gel nail polish provides a harder-wearing, better-looking finish for your fingernails that isn't going to be dented in day-to-day life, allowing you to pay more attention to other elements of your outfit, without the need for touch-ups.

Choose effective hair tools

There's nothing worse than curlers that can't create lasting waves or straighteners that take forever to work through your hair. The tools you use can save a great deal of time in your preparation process, and choosing quality tools like Aphrodite straighteners can knock all that extra effort off your getting ready time, leaving you with beautiful locks that take minimal effort to look amazing.

From straighteners to nail polish, extensions to hair steamers, we have all the tools you need to turn your pre-wedding preparations from annoying to easy. Take a look at our full range of products today to discover how we can make you wedding-ready in minutes.

Make your toenails summer ready with Chroma gel polish

Make your toenails summer ready with Chroma gel polish

Summer is well and truly here, and with this comes the need to bare those feet in scrappy sandals and comfortable flip flops. If you are worried about the condition of your toenails and are wondering what can be done to make them look fabulous, then Chrome gel polish is the ideal solution.

Below we explore why you should use Chroma gel polish on your toenails and the hottest summer looks.

Long lasting

Chroma gel polish lasts for several weeks, unlike regular nail polish that can chip after only a few days. This makes Chroma gel polish the preferred choice as once applied you can get on and enjoy your summer, without having to regularly top up your toenail polish.

Strengthens and protects

Chroma gel polish provides excellent protection for your toenails. They won't chip or crack, so you can run on that sand and paddle in the sea without worrying about your nails. Another added benefit is that Chroma gel polish strengthens nails, so is ideal for weak and brittle nails.

Easier than your fingernails

Many people believe that gel polish is difficult to apply to your toenails, but this is not true. In fact, it is much easier to apply, as the gel, once cured, is set and dried, and you don't have to use your non-dominant hand to apply gel polish to your toenails.

The nude look

You can keep your toenails looking naturally beautiful for the summer. Simply apply a clear gel polish to your toenails. For added summer sparkle, you could add a thin layer of glitter polish.

French pedicure

The French manicure is not only for fingernails. Your toes will look stunning when painted in this natural way, and will give you that boost of confidence when going barefoot.

Bold with neon

Summer really is all things bright and beautiful, so reflect this brightness in your choice of gel polish colour. Neon colours are big this summer. Paint your toenails in one chosen colour, or mix and match with the addition of beautiful nail art.

Sparkle and shine

Be adventurous! After all it's summer! Use metallic Chroma gel polish and colours that are enthused with glitter. Alternatively, use your favourite colour and apply a glitter top coat.
