How to take care of your blonde hair in the summer

blond hair

Whether you’ve got dyed hair or you are a natural blonde, your locks need special attention during the summer monthsWithout special care, your hair will suffer from contact with the ultraviolet rays, wind, excessive temperatures, pollution, the salty water of the sea or the chlorine in the pool water.

To help keep your blond as bright and vibrant as possible, we are sharing some tips, rules and tricks you need to keep in mind.

For lasting brilliance

To keep your hair shiny, but also silky, rely on the effectiveness of a dry hair – conditioner leave-in spray. With this special care product, your hair will reflect light from any angle.

The secret of bottled water

If your locks are dyed, you already know that the high chlorine dose in the pool can leave unsightly traces. If you soak your hair with water in advance, you will be protected and your hair will not absorb the chemicals.

Moderation is the key

If you are used to washing your hair very often, you risk removing the natural oils that are essential to its health.

To prevent water from washing away your vibrant colour, the answer is simple: wash your hair less often – every 4 to 5 days and in the days between washes, use a dry shampoo to refresh and maintain colour. Make sure it is formulated specifically for blond hair.

The formulation we recommend to use for hair that is thinning and fragile is in Nutrigro® Conditioner. It contains a natural emollient and hair building substances, an anti-fungal and bactericidal with our Nutrigro® complex – an herbal mixture to strengthen hair.

The power of natural products

You certainly know what happens after a few days of sun exposure: blonde hair gets an unpleasant and not at all fond of orange. The natural products like shampoos, serums and oils are the perfect solution. They will protect the hair and make it more resistant.

Intense hydration

The word of summer is, without a doubt, hydration. And again moisture! Argan or other essential oil hair masks play an important role in maintaining beautiful and healthy looks. For extra shine, pamper your colour-treated locks once a week with a deep-conditioning treatment. Apply the treatment to damp hair and comb it through from roots to tips. Before you get out of the house, spray your hair or use a protective oil. Avoid sun’s harmful effects by using a UV-protected spray. This will keep the colour from fading and keep the hair moisturised.

Why not try: Coolherbals Kapha Oil. Using Kapha Oil will make your hair thicker and healthier as the combination of mustard, clove and oil prevent your hair from hair loss keeping it moisturised.

Break from the salon

We know you do not like the darker roots, but you also have to take into account the harmful effects of excess chemicals on your hair: scalp irritation and weakening of the hair. It would be ideal to return to the beauty centre once every 10-12 weeks for maintenance.

Summer Tips For Healthy Hair

Summer is just around the corner and the strong sun, high temperatures and the humidity in the air will make our locks appear dry, hard to care for and arrange. Here are a few simple steps to keep your hair healthy and hydrated.

1.Wash your hair twice a week

.

Washing your hair daily in the summer can lead to it being dehydrated. During the warm season, it is recommended to wash the hair twice a week to allow hair to absorb the natural oils of the scalp. It is also important to choose a shampoo containing natural ingredients to add as many nutrients as possible to the locks. When possible, try to rinse your hair with cold water to straighten hair cuticles.

 2.Opt for natural products

During the warm season, the hair has a tendency to dehydrate, so it is best to limit the number of chemicals used to style and clean your hair such us commercial shampoos, chemical hair dyes and styling products.

Nutrigro natural products for healthy hair this summer. No mistakes, no hair problems

Nutrigro natural products for healthy hair. No mistakes, no hair problems

Choose to use natural hair care products with a high percentage of natural ingredients that will protect, moisturise and nourish your locks.

3. Stay away from the styling devices that use heat

Blow drying your hair is a common practice during winter days but in summer using heat might just do more damage than good. Take advantage of the warm days and allow your hair to breath and maintain its moisture. Give up your styling devices for a while and opt instead for simpler hairstyles, for which you do not need a dryer or a curler.

4. Do not skip on hydrating moisturising masks

Hair frequently exposed to heat regularly needs treatments that will intensely hydrate it. Use quality masks appropriate to your hair type, or choose to use homemade masks. Leave hair products to act for at least half an hour to get into dehydrated hair. To have a shiny healthy hair it’s not enough to apply moisturising products. Hydration is obtained to a large extent from inside, so make sure you drink enough fluids, eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, and take vitamins so the scalp skin is well hydrated and your hair grows healthy and beautiful. Water is always the best choice.

5. Do not forget to trim your hair regularly

During the summer it becomes almost obligatory to trim a few centimetres of hair once every 4-6 weeks. Hair can become burned and the only way to get rid of burned and degraded hair is to trim the affected locks otherwise the hair does not recover. Hair oils and hair serum are the perfect allies in the fight with split ends. Applied to clean, dry or wet hair, hair oils will provide protection throughout the day. Natural oils are also recognized for their beneficial effects on hair, including the prevention of split ends, improving hair thinning and dehydration.

Why not try:

Hair Loss and the Hormonal Imbalance in Women

Hair Loss and the hormonal imbalance

Hair loss is widely spread and we all get affected by it at some point in our life. Normally the hair goes through 3 phases: the growth phase – an anagen phase of about 3 years that dictates the hair length, the catagen phase (the stagnation phase), lasting about 2-3 weeks and the last stage, the fall, known as telogenic phase, lasting for an average of 3 months. During all this time the hair is rising from the deep layers to the surface, so the hair strands that are programmed to fall are easily snapping off. Normally 10% of the hair is in this phase. When the percentage increases, we have an abnormal hair loss.

The hormonal imbalance. What to expect.

Hormones are one of the factors influencing the way our hair looks and behaves. This is why we lose hair after pregnancy, when suffering from a thyroid disease or when stopping the estrogen medication (eg, contraceptives). A particular type of hair loss that is located in the centre of the scalp, and not diffuse, is caused by the increase in the level of male hormones.

Oestrogen imbalance in women

New mothers. The decrease in oestrogen production after birth is quite common, but this phenomenon is often temporary, and hair growth can be stimulated by vitamin formulations prescribed by the doctor. So do not worry too much if your hair is falling after giving birth. Consult your GP and make sure you get the daily vitamins and minerals necessary for your body to cope with the changes you are getting trough.

Hair Loss and Vitamins For WomenMenopause. When the production of oestrogen is stopping – during the menopause – it creates a multitude of symptoms and disorders including hair loss. This phenomenon differs greatly from one woman to another, and any hormonal treatment that may not be well-dosed to prevent this shortcoming needs to be quickly remedied. In this case, you should check the treatment with your GP, adjusting the initial dose. In addition to hormonal treatment, your doctor can also prescribe a local lotion or vitamins to help with the hair loss.

Try the Nutrigro® Hair Food Plus Capsules. They help maintain healthy existing hair growth & follicular health for women over 35 years of age. The capsules are specifically designed for women that are approaching certain phases of life such as menopause or post-pregnancy where there is an imbalance in Oestrogen hormone.

Thyroid problems

A slowing down of the thyroid gland causes hair loss and hair thinning. Hair becomes very dry, losing its shine, breaking easily or having split ends. The good news is that this condition is not a permanent one. This shortcoming can be remedied by thyroid hormonal treatment. Make sure you have the correct

diagnose before taking any hormonal supplements and use as much as possible natural hair loss products designed to help with hair loss and hair thinning.

Remember!

Hormonal imbalances, prolactin or cortisol imbalance can lead to hair loss. In cases of high prolactin imbalances hair loss and even the appearance of bald spots are an obvious symptom.

7 lifestyle changes to reduce hair fall

Hair fall may be a traumatic experience! While losing up to 100 hair a day is normal, if you are exceeding this range – you need to take a close look at your daily lifestyle. Here are seven things that might be the major reasons behind your thinning locks!

1. Shampoo

shampoo, conditioner and serum set
The formulation we recommend to use for hair that is thinning and fragile is in Nutrigro® Conditioner. It contains a natural emollient and hair building substances, an anti-fungal and bactericidal with our Nutrigro® complex – an herbal mixture to strengthen hair.

First and foremost, it is really important to choose the right shampoo. Moreover, you need to wash your hair depending on your scalp. For instance, over washing hair with dry scalp can lead to hair fall, or not washing oily locks thrice a week can lead to the same.
Further, make sure the shampoo is not loaded with chemicals including sulphate, paraben, and silicone that can make your tresses brittle and hence, prone to breakage.
In the Nutrigro product range, you could find a shampoo that respect your hair and which are suitable for your hair.
– Nutrigro Shampoo for Dry Hair
– Nutrigro Shampoo for Greasy Hair
– Nutrigro Shampoo for Normal Hair

2. Conditioner

A good conditioner can work wonders for your locks. It contains amino acids that help to repair damaged hair, and also helps to keep them smooth.
Coolherbals Ltd also offers the Nutrigro Hair Conditioner which will be able to help your hair loss. This product contains especially Fenugreek which has been traditionally used for promoting healthy hair growth.

3. Diet and Exercise

No matter what product you are using, nothing can prove its worth if you are not eating a balanced diet and exercising side by side. Make sure to include lots of protein and iron in your daily intake. And yes, crash diets can be the nemesis for your hair.
Coming to exercise, yoga and meditation are great options to reduce hair fall.

4. Chemical Treatments

Undergoing rigorous chemical treatments like straightening, perming, colouring, etc, obviously, bombard your hair with chemicals and is not kind on them. Further avoid using blow dryers, curling rods, especially on wet hair as they actually boil the water in your hair shaft and make them brittle.

If you really need to use a blow dry, then keep it on the lowest heat setting. If using other products that heat your hair, start with a fortifying leave-in conditioner and finish with a protective spray.

It is at this time that the Nutrigro serum could help you. Indeed Nutrigro Hair Serum is designed to be used daily on the scalp. Scientifically formulated, it contains botanical complexes, which keep the hair rigid and break resistant and help to clear the build-up of dead cells around the follicles allowing growth of existing hair. The formulation is rich in vitamins and minerals to help maintain the growth of existing hair.

5. Oiling

Kapha hair OilNeedless to say, oiling improves blood circulation and nourish the roots. Make sure to massage your tresses once a week with oil that suits your scalp. Cover it with a shower cap and wash it off with a mild shampoo after two hours.
Coolherbals offers two different oils which could help you :
– The Coolherbals Vata Oil nourishes hair and skin. The combination of Sesame, Bhringaraj and Rosemary oil keeps hair and skin moisturized. Suitable for dry hair.
– Coolherbals Pitta Oil cooling the body and scalp. It is particularly useful in thinning hair, hair falling or greasy hair. It contains Sandalwood, Coconut, Sunflower and Bhringaraj oils. Suitable for greasy hair.
Or you could use also Coolherbals Spa Hair Masque. Indeed it contains mineral-rich Gopichand Clay in a marine extract base Its use will allow you to nourish and repair your hair.

6. Get Regular Trims
Hair tends to be the most damaged near the tips, and a good trim in every six to eight weeks can help solve your woes. Damaged hair has straw-like texture, and can be chopped off to promote growth and remove split ends.

7. Stress
Stress is one of the root causes of a lot of health problems, including hair loss. It can also disrupt the process of hair growth and lead to premature graying. Again, meditation and yoga on regular basis can prove to be a good stress buster.
To fight the stress we advise you the ayurvedic massages. If you do not know this method you have the possibility to obtain all the information you need in the book “Secret of how to do Ayurvedic massages head to toe” by Ravi & Sushma Bhanot.

The most common myths about hair loss in men

The most common myths about hair loss in men

If your hair is starting to thin or you already have bald spots, you probably feel a strong desire to know exactly what the cause of your problem is. In this quest for information, you may find numerous myths and misconceptions about the causes, treatment, and hair loss in men that we would like to debunk.

Here are some of the most popular myths and the scientific explanations that contradict or support them.

Genes that cause hair loss come only from the mother

False. Although genetic inheritance from the mother is somewhat stronger, androgenetic alopecia can be inherited from both parents.

Bald men have a high level of testosterone

False. Hair loss is caused by an increased sensitivity of hair follicles – in certain areas of the scalp – to dihydrotestosterone which causes thinning of the hair follicle and not by high levels of testosterone.

You can determine if baldness is caused by genetic inheritance depending on the amount of hair falling out

False. Unlike popular belief, baldness is not due to the fall of a massive amount of hair, but rather due to the really small amount of hair that is being replaced periodically. In men who go bald, the fallen hair is gradually replaced by increasingly rare and thinner hair – a process called miniaturization.

Hair loss in men is caused by a decrease in blood flow from the scalp

False. When hair is growing, it needs an increased blood flow. Once you lose your hair, the scalp no longer needs the same amount of blood to support the hair growth process. Therefore, decreasing blood flow from the scalp is not a cause of hair loss, but rather a result of this process.

If you quit smoking you can avoid hair loss

False. Although several studies have confirmed the strong relationship between this harmful habit and the accentuation of hair loss, smoking alone is not the basis for hair loss. However, quit smoking and your overall health will be greatly improved.

Only men suffer from genetic hair loss

False. Hair loss is generally seen as a problem for men but women are also affected. In about 40% of women the hair will be thinner throughout their lives.

Hair looks thicker with Nutrigro natural hair loss products

To test whether Nutrigro natural hair loss products do work we put through an independent study…this is what we found…

OBJECTIVES

To measure any change in volume of individual hair fibres after a single application of Nutrigro Shampoo and Serum formulation.

SAMPLES

The samples comprised 10 lots of hair fibres from 10 different individuals. Shampoo and Nutrigro serum was also supplied. 10 hairs from five individuals were measured dry, washed and then treated with Nutrigro. The fibres were then re-measured and the volume change calculated.

METHODS

10 hairs were randomly selected from five different people. Three measurements were then made (approximately in the middle region of the hair), around 1 mm apart. The hairs were then washed and the serum applied. The fibres were left to dry overnight (ambient temperature) and then re-measured in (approximately) the same region in order to calculate any volume increase. Finally, an SEM micrograph of the same fibre with treated and untreated regions was imaged in order to show a visual comparison of the volume increase.

RESULTS Table 1

% hairs that showed increase (%success) 40% 30% 30% 60% 70%

The change in volume of hair before and after treatment is shown above – each figure is the mean average of three areas on each hair. Where negative values exist, this was attributed to natural variation in the thickness of the hair fibres, i.e. because the exact same area was not measured on the hair ‘after’ treatment, it was likely that this region was naturally thinner than the area measured ‘before’ treatment, hence the apparent reduction.

Figure 1 below shows a specific untreated region (covered with tape when the serum was applied)

– the diameter measures approximately 65 microns. Figure 2 is an area of the same fibre that has been subjected to the Shampoo and Serum – the diameter is approximately 90 microns (25 microns thicker).

Figure 1: Region from an untreated region. Diameter ca. 65 microns

The treated region from the same hair. Diameter ca. 90 microns

The result is the diameter increases from about 65 to 90microns.

Recommended Haircuts For Men With Thinning Hair

Recommended Haircuts For Men With Thinning Hair

Like it or not male pattern baldness is basically inevitable, with 66 percent of guys in their 30s losing their hair, and 85 percent partially bald by the time they are 55 years old. If you have reached that point in your life when hair loss or hair thinning has become a major factor in the way you look, we have picked up a few ideas from maxim.com on how to look your best when going bald.

Five of the best haircuts for thinning hair

1. Shaved. Well, let’s just say that if it works for Bruce Willis and Vin Diesel it will work for you. Shaving all your hair might seem like a bold move and even a scary one but there is freedom in it. Confidence is the key so embrace your baldness and be the best version of yourself you’re meant to be.

2.Tapered sides. Keeping the top of your hair longer and tapering the sides can in some cases help understate your hairline while giving the illusion of fuller hair. Ask your stylist to try this haircut the next time you pay him a visit and see how it looks. You might be surprised at the end result. Furthermore, try growing a beard as it will always divert peoples attention from your hair and make them focus on your face instead. To make the top of your hair stay up to use a blow dryer and even a small dab of wax to give it some texture.

3.Finger – length cut. Keeping your hair an inch long gives you enough hair to work with and makes it look like you have more hair than you actually do. The finger – length cut is basically just a longer version of a buzz cut that’s the same length all around –about one inch all over. It is perfect if the hair above your temples is receding, leaving you with a defined peninsula of hair in the middle, just like Jude Law.

4.Combed over. Okay, so we are not talking Donald Trump style or old-school combed over style where you brush over a couple strands of hair to cover a giant bald patch at the top of your head. The combed over style we are referring to works for receding temples and/or a thinning top, and is a nice look where the top is longer than the sides to create the illusion of fullness, and swept over to one side — almost like a side part, but less defined. Use a blow dry to the side and use some wax to keep in place and you should be looking perfect in no time.

Menopause and Hair Loss

Every woman experiences different menopause symptoms. Many women have some hot flushes, some have hair thinning or hair falling and some feel irritable, suffer from headaches, nausea or night sweats. Try our Nutrigro Plan – to help symptoms. 

N – nutrition 

U – use non-harsh hair products which do not have sodium lauryl sulfate (which causes irritation in some) and have natural herbs for healthy hair such as fenugreek (methi) and amla 

T – train or exercise daily to improve blood circulation to the head 

R – routinely remove toxins from your body through ayurvedic or Swedish massage scraping the tongue every morning and night, exercise etc 

I – Imagine the hair you want. Research shows  there is more chance of having the hair you desire if you can imagine how you want it to look. 

GRO– this gives the growth of existing hair 

Nutritionally we would recommend you increase oestrogen rich foods and reduce intake of what we call Pitta foods. In Ayurveda, we say there are three energies in the body – vata, pitta and kapha. The pitta energy adds heat and an imbalance in the scalp can cause hair loss and hair thinning.  

Pitta reducing foods include salads, less spicy foods and vegetables. Oestrogen rich foods are:   

1.Tofu, Soy, Fruits, and Vegetables 

Hair loss and menopauseSome fruits and vegetables have phytoestrogens – plant chemicals that are very similar in structure to oestrogen, and may act as weak oestrogen in our bodies. The mineral boron holds the body’s ability to hold onto oestrogen. Eat more plums, prunes, strawberries, apples, tomatoes, pears, grapes, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, lettuce, and onions. 

2. Eat Beans and Flax Seeds  

Beans and Flax seeds contain phytoestrogens and are a good source of many vitamins and minerals, including calcium, folic acid, and vitamin B6. Sprinkle beans on your salads. Take ¼ to 1 teaspoonful daily. 

The body tends to lose protein or collagen causing the hair to fall or become thinner. Supplement your protein with omega-rich fish. However, if you are on a vegetarian diet have plenty of pulses and nuts.  

Alternatively, you could give hair food to your hair and hair follicles through hair supplements. Ensure they have all the 22 amino acids that make protein, vitamins, minerals, and botanicals such as amla and fenugreek in them. 

If you are like Ella from Leicester, who rang us after reading our previous hair loss article, and have hair just dropping when you have a shower or on your pillow it may be that you need to strengthen the hold of the hair to the follicle. This you can do this through the latest technique that we have developed called the Nutrigro Hair Thinning kit. Simply roll a scalp roller with small 0.3mm pins along the areas of hair thinning. This will cause small temporary holes to be created and allow the Nutrigro serum to get to the follicles rather than just working on the scalp as most hair products do.

10 Hair Myths Debunked. Part II

Expert DOs to help with hair loss

Ever wonder which of the hair myths are really true and which are not? This time we have chosen 10 and exposed the reality of our most common mistakes regarding hair care.

1. Stress causes hair loss
True. Stress can affect the nourishment, growth or hair restoration. During periods of stress, the hair falls more, but, after regaining the psychic comfort, the hair recovers. Keep in mind that hair loss due to stress is temporary.

2. If you pluck a white hair, two will grow in its place
False. It’s just a superstition, and it’s a bad habit. By plucking your hair, you damage the root and predispose the scalp to infections. So spread the word around – plucking the hair won’t make it grow back thicker, on the contrary, you will only cause damage to the scalp.

3. Smoking leads to white hair
True. Although the hereditary factors play an important role in this process, studies have shown that the risk of premature greying of hair is four times higher for the smokers. The toxins accumulated in the body because of smoking also contribute to hair loss.

4. Cold water makes the hair shinier
False. Cold water closes the cuticles and the hair will be more orderly, straight and easier to style, but it does not make it shine. Lemon juice or vinegar added in water to rinse it has this effect.

5. Some shampoos cause dandruff

shampoo, conditioner and serum set
The formulation we recommend to use for hair that is thinning and fragile is in Nutrigro® Conditioner. It contains a natural emollient and hair building substances, an anti-fungal and bactericidal with our Nutrigro® complex – an herbal mixture to strengthen hair.

False. Dandruff is given by a fungus and has no connection with the shampoo you are using. Also, do not mistake the white flakes as a result of a drying scalp (those small and white peelings) with dandruff. The difference is that dandruff is seen on the hair and is in a large quantity, and the scales are on the scalp. The dried skin of the scalp can be treated with proper hydration and appropriate treatment for your type of hair.

6. Excessive washing leads to hair loss
False. Although dermatologists recommend to wash it two times a week, you can do it whenever needed. Scalp cleansing does not lead to hair loss or drying, just an excess of sebum due to excessive rubbing.

7. More shampoo means a cleaner hair
False. The amount of shampoo needed to wash your hair is the size of a raspberry. You can use any kind of shampoo you want, as long as it is for your type of hair ( normal, oily, dry) but choose a good quality one as these are better for your hair. Wet your hair well before applying the shampoo, rinse out, then (ideally) apply a natural conditioner and rinse that out too.

8. Hair falls because you always straighten it 
False. Heat damages burns or dries the hair, which sometimes leads to hair loss, but the hair you have lost will be quickly replaced. When the hair falls massively, the cause is not your styling devices. Try looking into a hormonal imbalance, a nutritional deficiency or a hereditary cause.

9. Conditioner restores the split ends
False. No product fixes split ends. The conditioner smoothes the cuticle of the hair and the split ends won’t look so splintered. It’s best to care for your hair daily in order to prevent split ends than try to fix the problem afterward. The quickest solutions to split ends it’s a trip to your hairdresser for a trim and a hydrating treatment.

10. Cut the hair regularly and it grows faster
False. The hair is thicker towards the ends than at the root – that’s why it looks thicker when it’s short. Hair cutting does not influence the growth or change the texture of the hair, but it keeps it healthy and the ends are smooth.
