10 Everyday Products That Will Make Your Hair Healthier…Instantly

10 Everyday Products That Will Make Your Hair Healthier…Instantly

Every day, our hair takes a real beating. We subject it to all kinds of styling products and tools, and then there is pollution in the air, which wreaks havoc on our hair. When our hair becomes damaged, we use more and more products to try and make it healthy and shiny again. Unfortunately, this often backfires, because we are just putting more chemicals on our hair, causing even more damage. Instead of trying different products and not getting good results, it is best to stick with a few products that you know are going to work. Here are some of our favorites:

1. Milder Hair Color

Problem: Coloring your hair causes damage: ammonia and peroxide strip your hair of moisture. But there are products that are less damaging than others.

Solution: An Excellent product to try is L’Oreal Professionnel’s INOA, which doesn’t use ammonia or peroxide.

    2. Hair Repair System

    Problem: Damage from from hair products and the environment.

    Solution: Pro Naturals is a line of hair care products that use natural ingredients, and are designed to repair damage to hair and bring hair back to its natural state. It is not a quick, temporary fix for dry hair. ProNaturals will protect the cuticle layer (outer protective layer of the hair), giving it more elasticity and making it stronger.

      3. Superabsorbent Towel

      Problem: When you rub the towel all over your hair, this can lead to breakage and make it dry and frizzy looking.

      Solution: Use a microfiber hair towel that is designed to soak up a lot of water. Try using the Sephora Aquis Microfiber Hair Turban.

        4. Heat-Protecting Spray

        Problem: Sometimes flatiron can heat up to 410 degrees. Heat-protecting spray will help protect your hair from the heat of styling tools.

        Solution: Try spritzing some Tresseme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray before styling. You can use it on damp or dry hair.

          5. Deep Conditioner

          Problem: Hair isn’t soft and shiny looking.

          Solution: Deep condition your hair with a product such as Shu Uemura Art of Hair Moisture Velvet Nourishing Treatment for Dry Hair. It only takes a few seconds to use. A deep conditioner should be used once a week for the best results.

            6. Restorative Shampoo

            Problem: Traditional shampoos strip natural oils from the hair.

            Solution: Try to become shampoo free person. If you think it’s impossible a thing for you to do, look for products that have the words, “anti-breakage”, “strengthening”, “restorative”, or “renewal”. These are products that have ingredients that help to seal split ends and make hair thicker. A good one to try is L’Oreal Paris EverStrong Reconstruct Shampoo.

              7. Ionic Hair Dryer

              Problem: It is a well known fact that hair dryers damage hair: you’re getting split ends and hair with no life.

              Solution: Instead of a traditional hair dryer, it is better to use one that emits charged particles instead of heat. Check out the T3 Featherweight Professional Hair Dryer.

                8. Silicone-Emitting Flatiron

                Problem: A regular flat iron makes hair look shiny, but leaves it dried out.

                Solution: One that emits silicone, such as the Remington Style Therapy Frizz Therapy Flatiron is good for your hair, and it helps to keep hair from getting frizzy.

                  Problem: Dull and unhealthy hair.

                  Solution: John Frieda Luminous Color Glaze Clear Shine will make dull, unhealthy hair look shiny in less than half an hour. It makes hair look healthy for a week or longer.

                    10. Good, Gentle Brush

                    Problem: Your hair nearly as unique as your fingerprints, so it is extremely important to use the brush that doesn’t damage your hair. Metal can heat up when using styling tools and burn the hair at the cuticle.

                    Solution: Use a brush that has a rubber paddle and synthetic bristles, preferably with balls at the ends. Try the Goody Start Style Finish Frizz-Free Finish Brush.

                      8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                      8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                      We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

                      On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

                      Advertising

                      Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

                      1. Smart Door Locks

                      A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

                      2. Smart Kitchen Tools

                      Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

                      3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

                      If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

                      4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

                      These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

                      5. Nest Thermostat

                      This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

                      6. Smart Lighting

                      Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

                      7. Google Chromecast Ultra

                      Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

                      8. Canary

                      This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
