coconut oil for tangled hair

coconut oil for tangled hair: Let’s play a game: what natural product is not only hailed as a superfood for health benefits but also the answer to nearly all beauty topics? You guessed it–coconut oil! Coconut oil is the queen of all oils, and can seemingly do no wrong. Not only is the oil great for cooking, but it is the answer to many problems such as dry and irritated skin, stubborn eye makeup, damaged cuticles, and our very favorite: hair care!

I have personally had issues with a dry scalp which has seemingly been a recurring problem even with using traditional treatment. However, coconut oil has made a drastic difference for me since I started using it. Because of my success with using it, I wanted to share my enthusiasm with you, and hopefully, you’ll have a great story to tell as well. In this article, we’ll be discussing the variety of benefits of coconut oil on hair, giving thoughts on if coconut oil is bad for your hair, and more!

What kind of coconut oil is best for your hair?

First off, let’s address whether coconut oil is bad for your hair. The answer is simple: no, it most certainly isn’t. Coconut oil can help boost the health of your hair, provide it with nourishment to heal damage, and moisturize your scalp as well. Coconut oil is completely natural and rich in fatty acids, proteins, vitamins, and minerals. Applying coconut oil to your hair is comparable to giving your face a nourishing spa treatment. It’s safe, and it’s effective!

When you are browsing store aisles for coconut oil, don’t let marketing catch you off-guard. There is no particular “kind” of coconut oil that is better for your skin, hair, and nails as opposed to what you’ll see advertised in the beauty or health aisles. As long as it is pure, 100% coconut oil, you’ll be good to go. Take a look around the food aisles instead, where you’ll likely find a large jar of coconut oil for far cheaper than in the beauty or health aisles. This will work just as well, considering the only difference is marketing and price.

Our suggestion would be to veer toward organic coconut oil so your skin and hair aren’t exposed to any of those damaging chemicals. My favorite coconut oil is the Spectrum organic and refined oil, simply because not only does it come in quite a large quantity, but as it is refined, it doesn’t smell or taste like coconut, which is great if you’ll be using it in various recipes as well–after all, a little goes a long way, so a container is bound to last a while.

How often should you put coconut oil in your hair?

You may be wondering if you can put coconut oil in your hair every day, and we’re happy to say that it can be applied as often as daily without any harm. Of course, it is an oil, so there is always the chance of it blocking your pores, which may cause the formation of acne. Because of this, daily use should be light while heavier uses should be followed with a shampoo treatment. It is quite a popular preference to use coconut oil as a hair mask at least once a month if not once a week.

To use coconut oil as a weekly or monthly hair mask, simply take about penny-sized amounts of oil, carefully rub it between your fingers to liquefy, and work it into your hair. Begin at your roots, being sure to massage your scalp as you go. Once your roots and scalp are covered, work the coconut oil down your hair strands, paying close attention to your dry ends. For daily use, you’ll want to use a much smaller amount to prevent your hair from feeling too oily.

The Benefits

Due to its popularity in beauty, you must be guessing by now that there are numerous benefits of coconut oil for hair treatment. The pros of applying coconut oil to your strands go much further than adding shine (though, who couldn’t use a little extra glow?), and extend to the health of your hair follicles themselves. The seemingly simple task of working coconut oil through your hair, tying it up in a bun, and covering it overnight with a disposable cap boosts your hair’s strength and resilience far more than you probably realize. Let’s take a look at these benefits.

1. Damaged Hair Nourishment

Split ends have to be the bane of all of us attempting to grow our hair long. It seems like every time we turn around, we have to trim our hair again. Though we know this will eventually help nourish our hair more and produce greater length, the waiting game is a difficult one. Thankfully, that’s where coconut oil comes in. Coconut oil is enriched with vitamins, fatty acids, and protein–all of which are necessary for helping your hair’s growth. When you apply coconut oil to your hair, the oil penetrates your hair shaft down to the follicle, coating it with the fatty acids and protein it needs to repair any previous damage.

As the coconut oil helps with split ends, in time, hair growth is typically a visible result. Your trips to the hair stylist can be a little farther apart now that your split ends won’t be as much of an issue. Without the split ends, your hair strands will retain their length so you can see the hair growth! The hair growth factor is twofold, because coconut oil nourishes your roots as well, which will now have the nutrients they need to heal any damage, target weak areas, and put more focus into growing rather than reviving dead ends. Though coconut oil for hair loss has been speculated as effective, there aren’t any studies proving it. Of course, since it can help with hair growth, it doesn’t hurt to try.

TIP:

To help your damaged hair, simply apply coconut oil as a hair mask before bed, ensuring your strands are covered as well as your massaged scalp. Cover with a hair cap and wash with shampoo in the morning. As always, follow the shampoo with a high-quality conditioner to lock in the moisture provided overnight by the oil.

2. Dandruff Treatment

Dandruff isn’t necessarily considered hair damage, but rather simply an affliction that many people experience. If you have ever had or perhaps even currently struggle with dandruff, then you know it can be a real issue. Not only does everyone who happens to see it or hear about it make assumptions about your hygiene, but it feels like no one understands. Meanwhile, you’re dealing with an itchy scalp and flakes on your clothing. It’s not something you can help, and despite your best efforts, dandruff shampoo, at best, tends to just keep the problem at bay.

Dandruff is caused by a variety of different issues and as opposed to what the vast majority of people think, it’s not always caused by a fungus. It can be, but it can also be from harsh chemicals and dry skin conditions. To help minimize the stress that dandruff brings, try treating it with coconut oil. With all its hydrating properties of rich fatty acids and vitamins, it makes sense that coconut oil could be a great contender for dandruff treatment. Most people may think of it only as an aid for your hair itself, however, it can greatly improve scalp health as well with its antibacterial and antifungal abilities. Additionally, it is rich in antioxidants which aid in keeping free radicals at bay–and yes, that’s even important for your scalp despite how densely it is covered with hair. Coconut oil has been used for hundreds of years to help with treating dandruff.

As with all-natural treatments, using coconut oil to help your dandruff won’t exactly produce overnight results, but you should start seeing a difference in a couple of weeks.

3. Relieve Infant Cradle Cap

If coconut can work wonders with dandruff, then could it help with your baby’s cradle cap? According to bellybelly.com.au, the answer is a resounding yes! Though many natural substances still require caution when being applied to infants, coconut oil is generally deemed safe. To be sure, check with your physician before use. Though there haven’t been complete studies to attest to the safety of coconut oil when used on infants and toddlers, it also doesn’t seem like there have been any recorded adverse issues either.  Therefore, if you do feel comfortable with giving coconut oil to your infant, there are many potential benefits. One of the major ways coconut oil can help your baby is by relieving their cradle cap. With coconut oil’s richly hydrating properties, it can be effective at treating cradle caps and preventing them from recurring.

TIP

To use it for a cradle cap, rub a dab of coconut oil into your baby’s scalp, gently massage it, and leave it to sit for about twenty minutes. Once the time is up, wipe away the excess oil with a cloth and use a soft brush to comb through their hair, removing any remaining skin flakes. Repeat as needed, though hopefully with continued uses, the need for treatments will lessen.

4. Hair Conditioner

Whether you are on a coconut oil kick, forgot to pick up more conditioner, or you’d simply just like to see how it works out, this oil can be used in place of your regular conditioner! Typically, coconut oil is used as a deep or leave-in conditioner, oftentimes overnight, however, it can also be used shorter-term as well.

TIP

After shampooing as usual, start with about a nickel-sized amount of oil, and begin working it into your strands. Begin at your roots as you would with your usual conditioner and initially focus on just massaging it into your scalp. Once you’ve massaged your entire scalp, start pulling the oil through the rest of your hair, being sure to cover it all. If needed, use more oil, especially if you want to hydrate your dry ends. Leave it in for the rest of your shower, and thoroughly rinse at the end. Your hair may even be shinier than usual after this treatment!

5. Hair Detangler

Coconut oil is, after all an oil, which means it will work quite well for getting out tangles, knots, and snarls! If you’ve ever combed your hair after letting coconut oil sit as a hair mask, you’ll know there truly aren’t any tangles to struggle through. The same concept applies to using coconut oil as a hair detangler, though with a far lighter application. A small amount goes a long way, so you’ll want to be extra careful with this approach as it’s very apparent if you use too much coconut oil on dry hair. If you use too much, odds are your hair will end up weighed down and greasy.

TIP

To detangle your hair, start with a minuscule amount of oil. You can even slide a finger along the side of the jar to ensure you don’t grab too much. Rub the oil between your fingers and sparingly work it through the tangled areas. I would avoid using it in any other areas of your dry hair or there is a chance your hair will end up oily. Focus on working out those tangles with the oil on your fingers, and you should be able to brush through them in no time. Another tip: brush from your ends to your roots to help get tangles out. Brushing from the roots down will merely aggravate them.

There is, however, a second option for detangling your hair if you are concerned about the risk of making your hair greasy by rubbing oil directly on the strands. If you have an empty spray bottle, you can dilute the coconut oil by mixing one tablespoon of oil with about a cup of water. This will easily spray on your tangled areas and greasy hair will no longer be an issue.

6. Tame Frizz

If you’re like me and deal with frizzy hair on a daily basis, then know you’re not alone. Frizzy hair is such a frustration, often ending with a basic hairstyle of a ponytail or bun because it’s otherwise unmanageable. Even at that point, however, frizzy flyaways are still an issue! Without loads of hairspray, it seems like they just can’t be tamed. Product after product on the shelves claim success with frizz, and yet, we all know most of them are a joke. Tame this frizz? Probably not happening.

This is one of the reasons why I love to use coconut oil on my hair: it truly does tame frizz and flyaways. The fatty acids in the coconut oil nourish your hair and help make each affected strand more manageable.

TIP

To unlock this benefit, shampoo and condition your hair as usual. After towel drying, comb through your hair and identify the trouble flyaway areas. With less than one-fourth of a teaspoon of coconut oil, warm it between your palms until it melts. Using your fingertips, smooth down the flyaways and the trouble frizz sections. The key here is to hardly even touch your hair; with light hands, just smooth the flyaways. Try not to touch the rest of your hair to prevent oily, weighed-down strands.

7. Scalp Massage Oil

Who could go for a scalp massage right about now? I certainly know I could, pretty much anytime, any place! Though scalp massages are the best way to usher in relaxation, this luxury often brings with it frizz and static in your hair. Don’t let that stop you though because coconut oil is a fantastic scalp massage oil. There are numerous oils on the market aimed at massages, but they are typically overpriced and underwhelming. We already know how coconut oil can help with scalp dryness, dandruff, hair damage, hair growth, and stimulates follicles, so why not use it as a massage oil? Though it solidifies at room temperature, it instantly melts at the touch, which makes it ideal for keeping down on the static during a massage.

TIP

Our suggestion for using coconut oil truly depends on your purpose for it. If you have the time and availability for a hair mask in your schedule, feel free to use as much oil as you’d like for the massage, and then just work it through the rest of your hair as a mask. However, if you’re aiming for only a massage and not a mess of oily hair, use the coconut oil sparing. Again, try just dabbing a little from the side of the jar.

Conclusion

We hope you enjoyed this list of benefits and uses of coconut oil for your hair! Please let us know in the comments what you liked the most or how you think you’ll use coconut oil for your hair!

I have personally been at the point where I felt like I have tried all the products under the sun for treating my dry scalp and frizzy hair, which made coconut oil such a fantastic option for me when I heard about it. I didn’t need to look any further than my kitchen for the answer and I could save money while I was at it!

Keep in mind that each person reacts to products differently and these benefits may work for one person, but not the next. It truly has made such a difference for me, so I hope it does for you as well. If you found this article helpful, please feel free to share it with your friends!

How to Curl Your Hair with a Flat Iron for Beginners

Published

on

curling hair with straighteners step by step

Curling hair with straighteners step by step: ok, so you’ve decided to purchase a flat iron. You’ve taken it out of it’s pretty packaging, plugged it in and turned it on. Now what? You have different choices in how to use a hair straightener depending on the desired look you are going for.

Are you simply wanting to straighten and smooth, or do you want to add a little twist and shine to your hair without having to use both a curling iron and hair straightener? Below we will walk you through how to curl your hair with a flat iron step by step.

Step 1: Heat Protectant Spray – Optional but Optimal

Although heat protectant spray is optional, it’s purpose is to help protect against heat damage from hot hair tools. If you are going to be using a hair straightener often, this may be a step you do not want to skip. We recommend using a spray such as John Frieda Frizz Ease Heat Defeat or Chi 44 Iron Guard for styling protection from the inside out.

Make sure hair is dry to begin. Divide hair into small sections and spray the protectant over one section at a time. You do not want to make hair wet, but slightly damp. Comb through and wait a few minutes for the hair to dry. Read the specific label on the product for more detailed instructions.

Step 2: Part Hair Into Sections

Once again you will be parting your hair into sections. Tie your hair up into a bun at the top of your head or pin it up to keep it out of the way, leaving the very bottom section down (approximately 1-inch sections). You will be working in layers from the neck up. The smaller the layers, the curlier it will be.

Step 3: Flat Iron Curling Techniques

How to Create Bouncy Curls with a Flat Iron:

Repeat the above curling technique but make bigger layers and larger sections for big bouncy curls. Also start further away from the scalp and glide the iron down the strands quicker than you would for tighter curls.

Beach Waves with Flat Iron:

curling hair with straighteners step by step: Beach waves are a great look, especially if you have long hair to work with. Divide your hair into 4 vertical sections. Take 2 of the sections from 1 side and twist them like a rope separately. Then twist the 2 cords together the same way. Clamp the iron down at the top of the cord (Again, not too close to the scalp!) and work your way down the cord, a few seconds at a time. Allow to cool completely and then unravel the corded hair. Repeat on the other side.

Step 4: Finishing Touches

Once fully curled, simply leave your hair as is or you can run your fingers or a pick through it. If desired you can spray the finished style with a flexible hair spray like Kerastase Laque Dentelle that was seen in the beach waves video. You can also use a wax or pomade like AG Hair Texture Paste to give the hair a smooth, matte look and better keep it in place.

Hair Straightening Tips

  • Hair near the hairline is thinner than other areas of the head, so keep in mind that not as much time is needed with the flat iron in that area to get the same result as the thicker areas.
  • If may help to spray a section of stubborn hair that does not want to curl with hair spray right before running the flat iron over it.
  • Gripping the flat iron on the hair too tightly can cause kinks rather than curls.
  • Heat the hair straightener up to the desired temperature ahead of time.

Conclusion

From loose curls to tight curls to flat iron beach waves, there are many different techniques used for curling your hair with a flat iron. Don’t be afraid to play around and discover your own technique or what works best for your hair. Remember it’s best to start with dry hair that has been combed through and optional to spray hair to protect from the heat damage that can occur with repeated use of hot tools. It will get easier the more you practice! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial on how to curl your hair with a flat iron.

Titanium Flat Iron vs. Ceramic

Published

on

titanium hair iron vs ceramic

Titanium hair iron vs ceramic: We take hair straightening seriously here at Beautisenz. When it comes to hair straighteners, there are different plate materials available and each has different purposes to suit different needs. Careful consideration should be made when choosing between the different flat iron types; the most important being your hair type. In this article, we will look at titanium vs. ceramic plate material types so that you can better understand the differences and similarities between the two. Scroll down for more information.

What is a Ceramic Flat Iron?

Ceramic products are made from material mixtures such as clay and water that are shaped into forms and then heated into a solid. They will demonstrate excellent strength and hardness properties, but can also be brittle.

Ceramic straighteners offer excellent value for money. Some of the desired benefits of a ceramic straightener are:

  • Smooth glide – they will not tug or pull at hair.
  • Quick even heat – they heat up very quickly and evenly so you will not have to make many passes through the hair.

There are also tourmaline-infused ceramic irons on the market. Together they make for a very desirable straightener giving you incredibly shiny locks. Tourmaline is a semi-precious stone that comes in all different colors. The benefits tourmaline brings to a ceramic iron are:

  • Generates a larger amount of negative ions that lock moisture into hair, reducing static and frizz.
  • Generates infrared heat that penetrates the hair from the inside out making hair smooth and shiny without damage.
  • Heats up quickly like ceramic.

Pros & Cons of Ceramic Plates

  • Affordable
  • Heats up quickly and evenly.
  • Glides smoothly over the hair without snagging.
  • Great for beginners and those with all hair types.
  • Some irons are labeled as ceramic but are merely ceramic coated over aluminum plates and do not retain heat as well. Look for solid ceramic.
  • Ceramic is not as durable as titanium. The plates can chip over time due to the brittle nature of ceramics.

What is a Titanium Straightener?

Titanium hair iron vs ceramic is a great material for hair straighteners as it is high in strength, but low in density so it is lightweight. It can heat up to very high temperatures without creating hotspots that damage hair making it the ideal choice for people with stubborn, thick or extra curly hair. Many professional salons use titanium plated straighteners for their ability not only to heat up very quickly but also deliver great results. Do not use high heat on thin, fragile hair or you will cause damage.

Titanium plates also use infrared heat and negative ion technology to smooth hair and enhance shine.

Pros & Cons of Titanium Plates

  • Very durable and scratch-resistant, lasting longer than ceramic plates.
  • Reaches high temperatures to straighten stubborn hair.
  • Fewer passes need to be made = less exposure to heat.
  • Will likely cause damage at it’s high temperatures to thin, fragile hair.
  • The more expensive option.

Things to Consider When Making a Choice Between Ceramic vs Titanium Plates

Choosing between a ceramic and titanium hair straightener comes down to several factors:

Cost

Ceramic hair straighteners are very common and come in a wide price range. They offer great value for money and are usually cheaper than titanium irons. Keep in mind that the cheaper ceramic irons may not perform as well as the more expensive ones.

Hair Type

Hair type is the most important factor that comes in to play when choosing a straightener. Here are the differences between ceramic and titanium when it comes to hair type:

Ceramic – Good for all hair types from thin to thick hair. Will not work as well on hair that is very thick and stubborn or very curly.

Titanium – Should not be used on thin fragile hair. Great for hair that is thick, coarse and/or curly.

Time

Although ceramic plates heat up pretty quickly, titanium plates will get the job done quicker due to their ability to quickly heat up, retain heat, and allow for fewer passes through the hair.

Experience

If you are a beginner it is best to stick to ceramic hair straighteners until you get the hang of it and discover how your hair reacts to straightening/what temperature your hair straightens best at without causing damage. If you are experienced and know what you’re getting into with straightening hair, the titanium straightener is an excellent choice. Titanium plated hair straighteners are often used by professionals.

The Bottom Line

Ceramic plates provide quick and even heating and are great for all hair types, unless of course, your hair is very stubborn and/or very curly. For a beginner, this is a great place to start. Titanium plates heat up to very high temperatures quickly and evenly. They may cause hair damage that is fine and fragile and are best for professional or experienced users. When it comes down to a titanium hair straightener vs. ceramic, make the choice that is best for your hair type and skill level!

Searching for the Best Hair Straighteners: Buyers Guide

babyliss curved flat iron reviews
Babyliss curved flat iron reviews: In the warm months, you’ve got humidity and sun exposure to thank for those fly-aways and frizz. During the cold months, it’s static electricity, split ends and dryness. For whatever reason, many of us are looking for a solution for untamed, frizzy hair. You can take solace in the fact that you are not alone. Frizzy hair is natural. Not that there is anything wrong with a wild do when we’re feeling a little adventurous. But the sleek look is in, and don’t we all love it? But how to get it? Hair straighteners should be a staple in everyone’s vanity. Different hair types require different irons. Here is a buying guide to help you decide which is the best hair straightener for your hair, or take a look at our flat iron reviews for more information.

What is a hair straightener?

Using a hair straightener, you can achieve straighter, shinier, smoother locks. It works much like a curling iron, but uses a flat plate that heats to a high temperature to get the desired look. It can interchangeably be called a flat iron. Depending on the model you purchase, flat irons can also be used to style and curl the hair, while smoothing at the same time using infrared and negative ion technology. Negative ions make the process of hair straightening longer lasting and less damaging. Infrared heat penetrates deep into the hair cuticle, heating from the inside out more efficiently and evenly.

How does a hair straightener work?

Babyliss curved flat iron reviews:  The shape of your hair is held together by hydrogen bonds. These bonds can be altered by water or heat. This is what hair straighteners are designed around; the ability for the heat to weaken these bonds with smoother, straighter hair being the end result.
The various plate materials used in flat irons are ceramic, tourmaline, titanium, etc. Once these plates are heated, they straighten and smooth the hair upon contact. Depending on the thickness of your hair, you will want to adjust the temperature settings. The thicker the hair, the higher the amount of heat you will need.

HOW DO I WORK THIS THING?

Simple Steps to Flat Iron Your Hair

Pros and Cons of a Hair Straightener

  • Frizz reduction – Uses heat technology to smooth out frizzy hair and add shine. Looks and feels great. Can eliminate static.
  • Quick way to straighten and/or style hair – Most straightening devices heat up very quickly and evenly.
  • Hair straighteners are not only for straightening – Many different styles can be achieved in a short time such as crimping and curling. They also work great on bangs.
  • Affordable alternative to going to a hair salon – Wide price range.
Q

CONS

  • Flat irons are not a permanent solution to straightening curly or wavy hair – Like using a curling iron, the style only lasts temporarily.
  • Repeated use can cause hair to become dry and damaged – It’s best used in moderation. However, the better quality the hair straightener is, the less damage will be done.

Buying Guide

We will take a look at the different types of hair straighteners to determine which is the best hair straightener for you. Important things to consider are plate size, plate material, hair type, and other features. Hair type is especially important so that heat damage can be avoided.

Plate Material: Ceramic vs. Tourmaline vs. Titanium

What is the best flat iron for your hair type?

Ceramic. Ceramic plates are smooth and allow the hair to glide through without painful snagging. They heat quickly and evenly, protecting your hair from damage. Great for beginners. Regular use. Works for thin to thick hair.
Tourmaline. Tourmaline is a semi-precious stone. Out of the three plate types, tourmaline generates the most ions that lock moisture into hair. Some plates have a tourmaline-ceramic mix to have the benefits of both. Like ceramic, it also has a smooth surface. Regular use.

 Works for thin to course hair.

Titanium. Titanium is a high-strength, low-density metal. It conducts heat rapidly, which is one of the reasons it is a great material for hair straighteners. It’s strength makes it scratch resistant and highly durable. Best for professional use, as it can reach very high temperatures. The high heat can be damaging to thin hair. Works for thick to course hair.

Plate Size:

Choosing the correct plate size for your hair is quite simple. The longer your hair is, the wider the plate you should use.

Temperature Settings:

Another feature you may want to consider is temperature settings. Make sure your hair straightener has an appropriate temperature setting for your hair type.Thin hair = lower temperatures. Thick hair = higher temperatures.

Thick hair should be able to handle temperatures above 360 degrees Fahrenheit. For thin or normal hair, the ideal temperature setting is up to 360 degrees Fahrenheit. If it is very fragile and thin, it is safest to stay below 250 degrees Fahrenheit. This of course can be adjusted to your preference once you have experience, but it is best to follow the recommended temperatures.
