Haircare Secrets of the Stars

I got this amazing book – How to be adorned; A girl’s guide to Hollywood glamour by Caroline Cox. The amazing book is about all things beauty and I was reading a chapter about haircare secrets of the stars the other day. I found the chapter really interesting. It was fun to dig into all the beauty tips of the stars like a fly on the wall. Here are some of my favourite hair care tips from the book  –

Constance Bennett

Constance Bennett was an American stage, film, radio, and television actress. This beauty washed her hair every 2 weeks (like I do) with soap and eggs! After washing her hair with soap, she would rub in whites of 2 eggs into her hair and rinse it all off with hot water, then warm water and finally cold water.

Irene Dunne

Irene Dunne was an American actress and singer. Her haircare secret was rubbing in hot oil into her hair 3 three hours before washing, followed by a vinegar rinse. She washed her hair once every 3 weeks.

Eva Longoria

The beautiful Eva Longoria touches her roots with hairspray and eyeshadow the same shade as her hair dye to blend in. I think this tip is one to remember. I love her hair.

Madonna

Madonna loves showing off her roots. She intentionally lets them show to create an edgy look undone look and it works great for her.

Jerry Hall

Jerry Hall washes her hair once a week and doesn’t use a blow-dry. She allows her hair air dry and uses French mink oil on the ends of her hair.

Jennifer Lopez

The beautiful Jennifer Lopez aka JLO rinses her hair with mineral water to flatten the cuticles and help the hair stay shiny. No wonder her hair is always looking so good.

The Rules for Beautiful Hair

A woman’s hair is her crown and it needs to be nurtured to look beautiful and healthy. I neglected my hair for many years so I know all about how damaging it is for your hair when the right hair products are not used or when you don’t spend time caring for it. Life happened and I now give my hair the attention and care it needs to thrive. I went naturally a few years ago and I only use natural hair products to nourish my hair. The rules for beautiful hair are similar to those for lovely skin. I will be writing a post showing off how long my hair is now and what my hair routine really looks like.  For now, here is a picture of my current hair length.

The Rules for Beautiful Hair
Keep your hair clean

I wash my hair every 2 weeks. Washing it every week will do my hair more damage than good. How often you should wash your hair depends on your hair type? Wash it as often as you need to keep it clean and healthy.

Stimulate your hair

It is very important to keep your hair stimulated. I do this by massaging hair oils into my scalp every day. This aids hair growth and keeps the scalp healthy.

Moisturise your hair

My hair and scalp are quite dry, so I moisturise twice a day. I have a spray bottle containing water and oils, and I use that twice a day alongside hair oils.

Keep your hair smelling good

The season of sweat is here and if you neglect your hair, it will end up smelling terrible. I love my hair smelling good. My essential oils do the job for me. I sprinkle a few jobs of my favourite essential oils into my spray bottle and that leaves my hair moisturised and smelling divine.

Lavender Oil promotes hair growth. I add a few drops of this essential oil into my spray bottle along with other oils and this has helped my hair growth. My hair is a lot longer and healthier since I introduced this oil into my haircare routine. This oil definitely stimulates hair growth so if you are trying to grow your hair, you should try looking into this essential oil.

My hair can be very itchy sometimes even when it is clean. This oil has gotten rid of the itchy scalp and dandruff, thanks to the antimicrobial properties.

Combats head lice

A recent study shows that lavender essential oil could help prevent head lice. The study carried out in 2011 also shows that it may even kill head lice. If you or your little ones are dealing with head lice, lavender essential oil may be all you need to combat them.

Lavender essential oil has a lovely fragrance that lingers on for hours. It leaves the hair smelling great, which is another reason why I love including it in my hair spray bottle. A few sprays and my hair is left moisturised and smelling divine.
