Three Moisture Remedies for Winter Hair

3 Tips for Preserving Hair Moisture in Winter

Winter can be really harsh on hair. It can cause drying, brittle ends and even breakage. Protect your hair against even the harshest of winters with these three tips for keeping your hair healthy and moisturized.

Deep Condition

Since cold weather is very harsh and drying to the hair, be sure to use a deep moisturizing conditioner each time you wash your hair. Take a look at the ingredients and make sure it has a fair amount of natural oils and emollients. Also, take extra care when shampooing your hair to avoid shampoos with salt and sulfate, which dry the hair out. Try Zelo Salt & Sulfate Free Shampoo.

Use a Humidifier

I know what you’re thinking: but humidity is bad for your hair right? Not at all, although it’s usually the cause of frizz, a fairly humid environment keeps your hair and skin looking moisturized. Bonus: a humidifier is actually really great for keeping the skin supple and youthful.

Limit Your Blow-dry Time

Excessive heat is extremely damaging to your hair, especially in the winter. Always use a thermal protector and to limit your blow dry time, carefully pat your hair dry with a towel to remove as much moisture as possible before drying.

Taming Frizzy Hair With Zelo

Hey all!!! We came across several Zelo Keratin reviews by other bloggers and decided to re-share them here for you in the next couple of weeks. Let’s read what these beauty bloggers have to say about Zelo.

I’m Taming My Wild Hair with Zelo Brazilian Keratin Smoothing System

I have struggled with my frizzy, coarse hair for as long as I can remember.  It’s super thick, hard to manage, and a huge pain to style every single day. I blame it all on my parents.  My Dad had a big ol’ Afro in high school, so I was either “blessed” with his hair genes, or the damage was done when my Mom spiral permed my hair over and over again as a child.  Either way, my hair has been torturing me for as long as I can remember.

Dad's Afro

In high school, I wanted straight hair so badly that I would literally place a hot iron (pre-flat iron days) on my hair to flatten it out.  I wasn’t the least bit concerned about burning myself.  I just wanted straight hair!!

When the flat iron was finally invented and made available in stores, I jumped for joy.  I could finally get my hair straight without worrying about burning myself, and I could reach areas I couldn’t with a regular iron.  I have been using a flat iron (one of the expensive and super fancy ones that goes all the way up to 450 degrees) for many years now.  The flat iron helps me to achieve the straight-haired look that I want, but it takes FOREVER for me to straighten my hair every day, and it also damages my hair quickly, due to the constant high heat exposure.

I’ve been wanting to try a professional keratin treatment on my hair for several years now, but they are very expensive.  I just don’t have extra hundreds of dollars laying around to get my hair professionally straightened.  It was always one of those “maybe some day” things for me.

When I heard about Zelo Brazilian Keratin Smoothing System, I jumped at the chance to try it out.  This is a treatment I could do by myself, in the comfort of my own home, and best of all, it is very affordable!

Coconut Oil & Honey Hair Mask For Dry Hair

Zelo Blog, hair mask for dry hairWe all go through that phase in our lives when we’ve experimented so much with our hair that we suddenly find our beautiful  tresses becoming dull and dry. If your hair needs a serious pick me up, a home-made coconut oil and honey hair mask can do the trick. This mask is perfect to provide great nourishment and some serious hydration to dry and damaged hair.

What You’ll Need:

  • Organic Coconut Oil
  • Organic Raw Honey
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Spoon
  • Towel

For the coconut oil and raw honey you’ll want to use equal parts of each. For example, you can start with 1 tbsp. of coconut oil and 1 tbsp. of honey, mix it together in the bowl with the spoon. For longer hair, you may find that you need just a little more of each, or maybe less all together for shorter hair.

Before you start, you’ll want to place the towel around your neck to keep the mask from getting all over your clothes. Take the mask and apply to sections of your hair from top to bottom using your hands. Be sure to generously and evenly cover your hair with the mask. When done, simply clip your hair up and let the mask process for 30 to 40 minutes.

Note: You can apply the mask to wet or dry hair. Applying the mask to wet hair is highly recommended as it’ll be much easier.

Finally, wash your hair as usual with shampoo and conditioner and done.  Enjoy your hydrated, revived tresses!

Allergy Precautions:

Before trying any home-made remedy, it is always good practice to take a small amount of the ingredients you are going to use and test them on a small patch of skin for a few minutes. If the area turns red and itchy or you feel any type of discomfort it’ll be best to avoid using those ingredients, try an alternative remedy instead.  If no reaction occurs, then it is probably safe to use for your skin.

The Afro Trend- Celebrating Natural Hair (Book) By Michael July!

A beautiful celebration of natural hair by photographer and author Michael July. These beautiful afros are an inspiration; no more relaxers or harsh chemicals. Zelo encourages healthy natural hair, giving you the power to choose between full curls, and on a day where you want less volume, smooth hair. So enjoy your natural hair! Nurture it, care for it, and respect it.

Zelo’s note: If you love natural hair, check out the book Afros: A Celebration of Natural Hair by Michael. 

Finding the right products can be tough, many brands with endless and complicated ingredient lists that we can’t even understand. So how do you know what to look for? For starters, you always want to go for a Salt and Sulfate free shampoo and conditioner. Salt and Sulfate free hair products are less damaging to your hair, they don’t dry your hair out or strip your color like regular shampoos. You can find Zelo’s Salt and Sulfate free shampoo and conditioner on our website here http://ow.ly/mNVCT.

Another great tip, is to use a thermo protector on your hair. Your skin isn’t the only part of your body that needs protection from the summer heat and UV rays. The Velvet Gloss is a great buy that not only protects your hair from harmful UV rays, but also shines, detangles, and prevents split ends. Dreaming of natural hair? Check out all the natural hair below and get inspired!

Zelo Keratin and African American Hair

Zelo Keratin On Natural “Black Hair” Before and After Results

Since Zelo’s airing on HSN this monday, ladies of color have been asking us one thing: “That girl doing her Happy Dance and whipping her hair back and forth, how do I get that?”

No doubt, keratin has been one of the best kept secrets for African American hair, and with that comes a lot of questions. Is it like a relaxer? Is it permanent? What will it do for my natural, afro, relaxed, mixed, curly, or kinky texture?  As an African American myself who is transitioning from relaxed to natural and also has about 5 different textures of hair on her head (lol), I’m going to do my best to address these question/concerns right now.
