What vitamins and herbs do for your hair

Just your daily shampoo and conditioner is not enough to give you the strong and healthy hair that you desire. It will probably make it look good for a while, but the underlying problems like hair fall, graying, dandruff and dulling will remain, and surface sooner or later. To combat that, Enrich Salons recommends the intake and usage of certain vitamins and herbs that will keep your hair not only looking good, but completely free of problems. Book Your Hair Services Online Biotin, Vitamin B, Vitamin E and Pantothenic Acid (also known as Vitamin B5) are the essential vitamins your hair needs. Biotin increases the elasticity of your hair and also protects against dryness. This leads to less breakage. It does this by helping your hair produce more keratin. Vitamin B slows down the graying process of your hair. Vitamin E is known for helping reduce hair fall. Try it and see. Pantothenic Acid does a lot. It helps reduce hair fall, helps strengthen hair follicles and cells, and prevents graying. As for herbs, Rosemary, Horsetail and Lavender are the things to look for on the store shelves. Rosemary stimulates hair growth and also helps restore luster. It helps fight dandruff too. Horsetail is full of silica. Silica strengthens your hair like never before. It strengthens it from the core and also helps restore shine. Another invaluable thing it does is increase the volume of hair. Something everyone seems to be looking for. Lavender enhances the external beauty of your hair by working from within. It helps increase shine by gently cleansing the deposits that dull your hair.

As for the final touches to that gorgeous head of hair, walk into Enrich...

How to deal with cosmetic allergies

Certain cosmetics, specially those containing fragrances and preservatives, contain antigens that may sometimes trigger allergic reactions. Here is how to deal with and prevent them. Book Your Services If you find symptoms of an allergic reaction setting in, stop using all cosmetics for a while. After the symptoms have disappeared, start using them one at a time to find out which one you are allergic to. Discard the identified cosmetic and never use it again. Consult your healthcare provider to find out what ingredient in that particular cosmetic caused the reaction. If symptoms do not disappear, contact your healthcare provider. He or she may prescribe some mild topical steroids, prescription steroid creams or bland emollient creams depending on the severity of the reaction. Again, find out from him or her what it was that caused the allergy. Next time you buy or use a cosmetic, read the list of ingredients on the packaging. Do not use it if it contains the item that you are allergic to. Before using something you have never used before, do a mini patch test first to test for a reaction. Put a bit of the product on your inner wrist and wait for 24 hours to see if there is a reaction. If not, go ahead and use it. Keep your cosmetic brushes and applicators clean. Try and use perfume-free products. Book Your Services Avoid using products that contain water as that means it contains preservatives too, which are known for causing skin allergies. The most common preservatives known to cause allergies are parabens, imidazolidinyl urea, Quaternium-15, DMDM hydantoin, phenoxyethanol, methylchloroisothiazolinone, and formaldehyde. Avoid them. Choose your cosmetics wisely, learn from mistakes, and give yourself problem-free...

Why you need Vitamins A, C, E, K and B to have healthy skin and hair

Book Beauty Services Online Cereal, eggs, liver, many fruits, vegetables, whole milk, butter, fortified margarine, meat and oily saltwater fish are excellent sources of Vitamin A. Vitamin A helps combat aging of skin, removing fine wrinkles, fighting age spots and decreasing roughness by adding Retinoic Acid to your body. Retinoic Acid is the active form of Vitamin A. Even a slight drop in levels of Vitamin A will immediately become evident on the skin. Your skin will become dry and flaky for example. So don’t forget this important vitamin when you go grocery shopping next. Peppers, guavas, dark green leafy vegetables, kiwis, broccoli, strawberries, citrus fruits, tomatoes, peas and papayas can give you all the Vitamin C you need. Vitamin C helps make your skin supple and helps retain its smoothness and youthfulness by promoting Collagen growth. Collagen is very important in keeping your skin elastic. Olives, sunflower seeds, peanuts, almonds, wheat germ and leafy greens are full of Vitamin E. Vitamin E does what Vitamin A does and also help reduce stretch marks and lines on application. It does so because it is an antioxidant. Antioxidants help fight free radicals in your body. Free radicals, caused mainly by pollutants and exposure to sun, are one of the main causes of premature skin aging. Herbs, dark leafy greens, spring onions, brussels sprouts broccoli, chilli powder, asparagus, cabbage, cucumber and prunes are rich sources of Vitamin K. On application Vitamin K helps reduce under eye circles and bruises. When combined with Vitamin A, its effectiveness in reducing dark circles increases. Book Beauty Services Online Bananas, oatmeal, liver, kidney, egg yolk, broccoli, fish, shellfish, chicken, dairy products, mushrooms, avocado, sweet potatoes and rice are rich in Vitamin B.

You hair needs sunscreen too!

You hair needs sunscreen too!

Never heard of sunscreen for your hair? That is  because it’s a new concept, and like all good things, it is catching up. Worldwide. Book Your Appointment Intensive research has shown that it is not only your skin that is affected by the Sun. UVA and UVB rays from the Sun damage the cuticles of your hair making it dry, brittle and damaged. It loses its natural moisture and shine, feels itchy, and dandruff appears. You can see for yourself that the top layer gets frizzier and thinner than the parts that are not exposed. Damaged hair breaks easily and becomes unmanageable and unruly. Harmful rays from the Sun break down the proteins in your hair known as keratin. Keratin helps keep your hair hydrated, flexible and healthy. You need to be even more careful about exposing your hair to the Sun if you blow dry your hair, use heated styling tools, dye, perm, or curl. Using an umbrella when you step out will not help as the harmful UV rays penetrate it. A scarf or cap will not protect the hair that is not covered by it. Something that covers the hair completely will certainly help though. But all is not lost. You don’t have to hide your beauty every time you go out. Not with the introduction of sunscreens for your hair, says Enrich Salons. There are many broad spectrum conditioners, lotions, sprays and gels that are easy to use and are light so your hair does not look greasy in the market now. Those containing SPF are specially effective. Try them. Book Your Appointment Also, next time you walk into Enrich Salons ask about home-made packs you can use weekly to give your hair the tender loving care it...
