  1. Remember to wear scarf hat or cap to protect your hair against the damaging effects of the sun.
  2. If you are planning to stay long in the sun, use a protective sunscreen on your hair before stepping out.
  3. Try using Sun Hair repair mask, after your hair is exposed to the harmful effects of the sun for a long duration.
  4. Avoid using additional heat on your hair, meaning make the least use of Hair Dryers or Hair Curlers on your hair. If at all using it, remember to condition your hair before you do so.
  5. Avoid taking hot showers or washing your hair in hot water, use warm or cool water instead, the heat can dry out and/or damage your hair and skin.
  6. Avoid hair products with formaldehyde or alcohol in it which dry out hair, try to use natural products that are gentler on your hair.
  7. Try using moisturizing shampoo during summer, rather than the normal shampoo that you use during other times, as they are much gentle on your hair.
  8. Try washing your hair less often; shampooing your hair strips the moisture out of your hair.
  9. Deep condition your hair after each shampoo wash.
  10. Products with replenishing actions works better in summer.

L’Oreal Professionel Force Vector Serie Review and Photos

I’ve promised  a review about the newest line from L’Oreal Professionel – Force Vector. If you want to find out more about the line and 5 products read this post because I just don’t want to repeat everything here.

About the Force Vector Serie

“New Force Vector counters this damage with Glycocell, the latest in haircare technology from L’Oréal Professionnel. Glycocell combines Incell technology and Royal Jelly Extract to deliver targeted strength and reinforcement to fragile, weak hair. Incell strengthens the natural cohesion of the hair and increases its resistance to external stressors, for long-lasting conditioning results. Royal Jelly Extract is a nutrient-rich substance produced by bees that provides concentrated essential amino acids and vitamins to the hair. Together these technologies are designed to reinforce hair that has been compromised due to external aggressions, leaving it stronger and more resistant to breakage. “

I’ve got three products our of 5 because I don’t need Force Vector Reinforcing Anti-Breakage Conditioner and Force Vector Reinforcing Anti-Breakage Thermo-Active Treatment.

This means what I got:

  1. Force Refill Intense Reinforcing In-Salon Treatment
  2. Force Vector Reinforcing Anti-Breakage Shampoo
  3. Force Vector Reinforcing Anti-Breakage Masque

And now I will tell you my impressions about each product that I’ve been using since November.

Force Vector Reinforcing Anti-Breakage Shampoo(250 ml),£9.50 or $21.00

I finished this shampoo last week and already got a drugstore one and I miss the L’Oreal Shampoo a lot so I will be getting the new one soon. But this time from the other serie (I am thinking avout Volume Expand).

First of all I have to tell you that I have a thin and oily hair. My hair really looked so much better, thicker and healthier when I was using this shampoo.  The bonus is that I absolutely love how it smells and you need a small amount of shampoo to wash your hair.

There is only one negative thing. My hair gets oily very soon after this shampoo but I can’t say that I mind that because I wash my hair every 2 days. My hairdresses told me that it is because the shampoo contains some oild that “cover”  the hair.

Also I wanted to see the result that this shampoo gives the fine hair so I asked my friend to try it and to tell the result. After using this shampoo for a while my friend told me the same! Her hair looked amazing but she had to wash it more often.

So I guess it’s better to use it when you have dry hair.Also I would recommend you to get this shampoo from an on-line shop because you will have to pay more in the salon just like I did.

Force Vector Reinforcing Anti-Breakage Masque (200 ml),£13 or$30.00

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer Review and Photos. Rave

I’ve been using Philip Kingsley’s PK 4 HAIR vitamins for three months and have been seeing great results (will do a review later), so have decided  to try the brand’s cult product which is Elasticizer.

I’ve got the smallest tube ( £12.25 for 75 ml), to see how I like it before getting a full sized product.

I don’t have damaged or colour treated hair to begin with, but I do see great results anyway. Although, you should leave it for 10-20 minutes, I usually leave it on for a longer time while I am doing some kind of work around the house ( I use it in the evening). And then shampoo, as usual.

Usually (90%) I let my hair dry naturally and don’t style it in any way but, once again, I can see that my hair is soft, shiny and in a great condition, as if I have just visited the salon! It is definitely so much better than most hair products I’ve tried before. I actually don’t use conditioners as don’t see any results, but this is very different.

Jennifer Aniston’s Hair Secrets

Chris McMillan, the star’s longtime friend and stylist, spills

What was Jennifer’s hair like when she first came to your salon?

jeniffer aniston

I’ve been doing Jennifer’s hair forever. When I first met her, she had long, one-length hair with bangs, and she was like, “Don’t cut my hair—I want my hair long.” But I’m a hairdresser, so I obviously cut her hair and told her she needed to grow her bangs out. I cut a couple inches off and layered it from her bangs down to the ends. Then I taught her how to pin the bangs over with a bobby pin and make them flat—remember how everyone was doing that on the first year of Friends? Six weeks later, she came back to the salon for another haircut—her bangs were longer, and we just cut a little bit more off her length. The next thing you know, her bangs were down to her chin, and the rest of her hair was at her shoulders in these long, loose layers that sort of flipped out—and that’s what we called the Rachel.

What was the Friends hairstyle inspired by?

I’m always inspired by other hairdressers, models, fashion, and magazines like ELLE. For the Rachel, I was inspired by a model named Beri Smither—Ward Stegerhoek did her hair at the time. She was wearing this really great shag haircut—it wasn’t the Rachel, but it inspired me. These days, though, Jen likes her hair on the longer side with her layers grown out.

What’s Jennifer’s natural hair texture?

She has naturally wavy, medium-texture hair, and she has what you would call good hair—it goes curly really easily if you scrunch it, and if you blow-dry it straight, it stays straight but with body.

What shampoo and conditioner does she use?

She loves having her hair shampooed fresh and clean. She shampoos and conditions pretty much every day—if she’s going for the day-old-hair look, she prefers to create it using products. The shampoo and conditioner she’s using right now are my shampoo and conditioner. I used her and Courteney Cox as my guinea pigs. Jennifer uses the products every day. She also loves deep conditioners—I’ll do professional treatments at my salon using Shu Uemura products.

What hair products did she use before she came to you?

aniston 1

Oh, God, we used to laugh—she loved Aussie 3 Minute Miracle back in the day. We would use that stuff. We loved the smell of it. They also have that Aussie Sprunch Hairspray—we’d use that, too.

How does Jennifer keep her hair looking great between salon visits?
