Simply spray Control Plus to damp hair and blow-dry using a round brush for the most amazing silky, shiny, frizz-free blowout you’ve ever had in your life. It’s like…magic!

2. Misty Day (Bohemian Curls)

Hair How to

HOW TO: Use a curling wand with Zelo Velvet Gloss for soft wavy curls then run your fingers through your hair to loosen them up a bit. Add in a few feather extensions and you could pass for Misty Day’s twin…or Ke$ha.

3. Marie Laveau (Havana Twists)

American Horror Story Hair

HOW TO: This style is ideal for coarser, curlier hair that will hold the twists. Part your hair into 1″ sections and separate that section into two strands. Twist the strands around each other. Secure the ends with a rubber band. Always keep your twists hydrated with Zelo Velvet Gloss. 

4. Myrtle Snow (Big Red Hair)

American Horror Story Coven Hair

Okay, this may not be the sleekest hairstyle but, as Myrtle would say, “don’t be a hater, dear”. We are in love with her big red hair.

HOW TO: You’ll need a crimping tool and a comb for backcombing handy. Here’s a great tutorial on crimping technique.

Zelo Brazilian Keratin Smoothing System on Natural African American Hair

I am absolutely IN LOVE with this product!! I tried this for the first time almost 4 weeks ago. I have naturally kinky/curly hair that is extremely thick and hard to manage. Zelo gave me beautiful straightened hair and made my hair softer and more manageable without permanently changing my curl pattern. Over the past 4 weeks I have enjoyed wearing my hair both straight AND curly with this treatment in!! I was able to wear my hair straight for over a week without having to retouch with the flat iron at all until I washed it again. This product does exactly what it says, I am ordering another batch today, and telling all of my friends about it!!  – Charlesa

I don’t brag about anything I haven’t tried myself, and I am so happy I decided to give this product a chance!! -Charlesa

More pictures of my hair after using this product. This was the next day after treatment. Hair was super SHINY and SILKY with NO PRODUCT ADDED!! I got so many compliments. Again I am 100% natural. I think my hair looks better with this treatment in it than it ever did with a perm!! I am not a beautician but I take very good care of my hair and I did this treatment at home myself. Sooo easy!! – Charlesa

Zelo Keratin Smoothing System- Hair Results

This week we are answering a very good question from a fan @natasharoyal from our fan page on Facebook. She asked if we could post pictures that show the before, after, and post wash results of our Zelo Keratin Smoothing System. So here we go, below is a picture of a customer’s hair before the Zelo Keratin treatment, after the treatment, and after the first wash. Many customers want their hair to be straight without loosing their curls, and that is the beauty of this system. This keratin treatment smoothes out the curls and eliminates frizz for up to 30 washes without permanently altering the curl pattern. After the first wash the customer will see their curls return, yet they will be more manageable, easy to blow dry and style, and easy to achieve the “straight” look. The treatment utilizes a rich blend of oils, vitamins, and organic proteins to deliver sleek and shiny salon results at home.

Hunger Games Catching Fire: Primrose Everdeen’s Wrap-Around Braid Tutorial

Catching FIre: Primrose Wrap-Around Braid Tutorial

Catching Fire Hunger Games Primrose Braid tutorial arrows

With the upcoming release of the much anticipated sequel The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, we decided to do an inspired hair tutorial on how to do the braid Primrose Everdeen is wearing in all the trailers.

Step 1: Create a side part and divide the hair into two sections. 

Step 2: At the end of the side part, begin an inverted braid (Dutch braid) along the the part line towards the forehead, only grasping additional hair from the side closer to the part.

Step 3: Once you have braided to the forehead line, start moving the braid down and around, grasping additional hair from both sections until you reach behind the ear.

Step 4: Continue the braid across the back of the head, but this time grasping additional from from the side closest to the head until you reach the other side of the ear. Continue the braid down the length of the hair and secure the ends with a hair tie.

Tip: If the braid is laying awkwardly, use bobby pins to pin it behind the ear to hold it in place.

Good luck, or should be say: may the odds be ever in your favor!

Does Castor Oil Make Your Hair Grow Faster?

Beauty Myths: Does Castor Oil Make your hair grow

Castor Oil, which comes from castor beans, otherwise known as an over-the-counter laxative, is now a hair product many women can’t live without.

The Myth:

If you’ve ever heard the term “Castor Oil Challenge” then you’ve probably heard something along the lines of: Castor oil makes your hair thicker/longer/stronger, etc.

Castor oil is used as a hair and scalp moisturizer. It comes in two popular forms: dark tinted black and yellow colored. Black castor oil or “Jamaican Black Castor Oil” is typically thought to be the strongest, and more natural form.

Black Castor Oil vs. Yellow Castor Oil

Black castor oil is actually the least pure form of castor oil. Yellow castor oil is typically cold pressed, which means it is extracted from the castor bean without heat, keeping most of its natural properties in tact. Black castor oil comes from heating & cooking the castor beans then mixing in other additives to give it the dark color. So, it’s safe to say that you’re getting less of the natural benefits to your hair with black castor oil.

The Science

Natural castor oil is rich in vitamin E and fatty acids. It also has anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial properties. However, there is no real scientific evidence suggesting that castor oil actually thickens the hair strand or makes it grow faster.

The Verdict

Weeeeeeeeell…For women suffering with Alopecia caused by traction and scarring in the scalp, applying castor oil directly on the scalp can help reduce the inflammation there, which may contribute to promoting growth and thickening the weakened strands. Maybe.

Otherwise, the answer is no. Applying castor oil to your hair will not affect the rate your hair grows or make your hair any thicker. Castor oil can make your locks shinier, more moisturized and stronger, since moisture protects the hair from the elements. 

So why does it seem as if everyone and their mother using castor oil is getting longer hair faster? Chances are the same people who who use castor oil for hair growth are just likely to be doing everything right to optimize their hair growth. Everything right means: eating healthy and getting vitamins, moisturizing, using sulfate-free shampoos to prevent moisture/nutrient loss, and getting plenty of sleep and exercise.
