Buying Shampoos and Conditioners Online

Buying shampoos and conditioners online can be far more convenient than going into a salon to purchase them. You can have them delivered to your home or work address whenever you want. It can also be a good way of getting hold of hair products cheaply, and buying in bulk may also make the prices lower for you.

If you are considering buying any hair products online, it is advisable to buy from a trusted retailer. Don’t buy from websites that aren’t verified. The products you buy may not be genuine, or they might be old stock and could be out of date. This could actually cause damage to your hair and may significantly fade any colours you have had applied.

The best option is to buy directly from a salon. Many salons have online stores, so you can still shop via the internet. The products you receive will be verified, high quality and good for your hair.

What is Biotin and is it Good for Hair?

Also known as vitamin H, biotin is one of the B complex vitamins that help the body convert food into energy. The word biotin derives from the ancient Greek word “biotos,” which means “life” or “sustenance.” B vitamins, and specifically biotin, help keep your skin, hair, eyes, liver, and nervous system healthy.

Most people get the biotin they need from eating a healthy diet, but there have been many claims that getting more biotin can regulate your blood sugar, promote healthy hair, skin and nails, and help pregnant moms have healthier babies. How much biotin is enough, where can you get it, and what can it really do for you? Between 30 and 100 mcg per day of biotin is what we would recommend for adolescents and adults.

Cut Out The Sodium!

Your sodium intake should only be ideally one teaspoon a day, but with the types of food the average person eats, the majority are horrifically over their recommended sodium intake.

When selecting foods to eat, choose fruit and vegetables as much as possible as they are low in sodium content. This is the same for canned and frozen fruits/vegetables also. Try and eat fresh meats over packaged meats. Packaged meats contain more sodium, and of course… Fresh is always better!

If you are worried about your sodium intake, check food labels when doing your weekly shop. Manufacturers are legally required to let you know exactly how much of what, you are consuming. Anything labelled in red basically means it contains over the daily recommended amount.

Face Masks – Do It Yourself!

Why would you want to spend £5+ on a store purchased face mask, when you can spend less on the ingredients, have fun and make it yourself? Below are two of our favourites.

Banana and Honey Face Masks: That’s right! You can use a banana as an all-natural, homemade facial mask that moisturizes your skin and leaves it looking and feeling softer. To make the face mask mash up a medium-sized ripe banana into a smooth paste and mix it with 1/4 cup of plain yoghurt and 2 tablespoons of honey, then apply it to your face and neck (if necessary). Let it set for 10 to 20 minutes, then rinse it off with cold water.

Coffee Face Mask: The coffee face mask is a classic for injecting life into a dull, tired complexion. While the mask will remind you of your morning cup of coffee it will brighten your complexion and tighten your skin, revealing a youthful you. To make: In your bowl, mix 1/2 cup of finely ground coffee beans with 1/2 cup of cocoa powder. Add in 1 cup of milk, stir until it creates a paste. For a thicker paste, use less milk. Fold 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and honey. Apply to skin and let dry (up to 20 minutes). Then rinse.
