Hair Tips

Use Water- Applying product to your hair while its wet drives the product into your hair strands, leading to better moisture retention and hydration

Take care of your scalp- this is where healthy hair begins,, abandoning the scalp will cause buildup and no growth

Don't neglect your ends- this is where shedding occurs and where knots will appear- tending to these will ensure no unnecessary breakage happens further up the hair shaft

Keep hair strands moisturized- lack of moisture & damage from the environment can affect how long your hair will get, moisturize from root to tip

Detangle after softening hair (focus on ends FIRST)- begin with fingers and then use a detangling tool

Shampoos- use hydrating shampoo, Use clarifying shampoo only if you use a lot of product on your hair or if you haven’t used one in a while (to remove buildup from over time), Ayurvedic shampoos


Use a plastic cap- used to open your follicles for better moisture retention by stimulating sebum production (our hair's natural oil) and helps penetrate each strand. 

Consistent Trims- will help your hair stay cohesive and healthy

Experiencing Thinning/Hair loss

  • Mental/physical stress “telogen effluvium” (do yoga, breathing exercises, physical exercise)​

  • Nutritional deficiencies

  • Systemic diseases (thyroid, lupus, etc.)

  • Hormonal changes/imbalances (menopause or following childbirth)

  • Alopecia-traction- pulling force of hair at the roots for styling (keep hair loose and avoid constricting styles for

  • long periods of time, be gentler, put less tension on hairs at the front)

  • DHT- stress hormone (hair follicles respond to this)

  • Genetically disposed to hair thinning -gradual progressive reduction in hair volume, hair follicles are sensitive to male hormones causing follicles to shrink/produce slightly finer and shorter hairs with each hair growth cycle

  • Thyroid disorder (hypo-system moving slower, hyper- body depletes resources faster)

Hair Maintenance 

Silk pillowcases/satin lined hats & head wraps - cotton strips natural oils/moisture out causing dryness & breakage 

Protective styling - refrain from manipulating your hair everyday, single braids or twists once a month 

Use a microfiber towel - less friction on hair strands, maintains moisture, prevents snags, traps more dirt, limits frizz 

Weekly deep conditions - maintains product absorption, moisture & softness

Protein - ALWAYS follow up with a deep condition or moisturizer to balance out the pH, look out for hydrolyzed wheat & soy protein as they are small enough to enter the hair shaft and get blow the surface instead of coating the strands  

Use indirect heat - hot oil treatments, hot head cap, steamer, plastic cap + hooded drier

Shampoos - Know when to use a clarifying shampoo v a hydrating/moisturizing shampoo

Hair Masks & Rinses - Aztec clay or rhassoul clay + rosewater or ACV, rice water rinse, green tea/black tea rinse 

Water - Warm water opens cuticles, remove buildup, creates frizz/dryness while Cool water seals in moisture & increases shine

Consistency - Create a hair routine/hair day, use leave in conditioners, moisturize daily, do daily scalp massages, seal your hair with oil, trim every 3-4 months 

Use water based moisturizers

Know the difference between moisture based and protein based products
