Are You Losing Your Hair?


 

You’ve spied hairs circling your shower drain and often have to pick off a stray strand or two from your T-shirt. Does this mean you’re losing your hair? According to the mane pros at Viviscal, you probably don’t have anything to worry about. “Most women will find hairs in their shower, in their comb, brush and hair accessories, and occasionally, on their clothes. This is normal daily hair shedding, not to be confused with more serious hair loss. Daily hair shedding occurs due to the natural hair growth cycle, during which old hairs are pushed out to make room for the growth of newer, healthier hairs. The average woman can expect to lose between 100 and 150 hairs daily this way.”

If you do think your daily hair loss is more than this, cut back on your mane heat styling, doing daily ponytails and reduce stress. (There may also be a medical reason, so be sure to talk to your doctor.) You can also add a dietary supplement (like Viviscal!) to help with healthy hair growth.

Blonde & Beachy!

Matrix Celebrity Stylist George Papanikolas transformed blogger Elaine Daneshrad from a sunrise color melt to a blonde bombshell, then styled her hair into gorgeous beachy waves. Papanikolas started out by lightening the hair, then applying color melt shades for the beautiful blonde finish.

To style, the mane pro misted damp locks with Style Link Rough Me Up Salt Infused Spray. He then blow-dried fringe with a large round brush to create volume at the roots, then directed the air flow downward. For the rest of the hair, he twisted sections around fingers while drying to create texture. To finish, he wrapped sections of hair around a curling iron, curling away from the face. For additional texture, Style Link Mineral Playback Dry Shampoo was tousled through from the roots to the ends, followed by a spray of Biolage R.A.W. Replenish Oil-Mist to add shine and smooth out the ends.

Grow Your Hair


 

Who doesn’t want to hit the beach with silken, healthy and long hair this summer? There are so many tips and tricks that claim to help your locks grow, but how do you separate fact from fiction? To help, Sophisticate’s teamed up with the experts at Viviscal to discover if conditioning your coif with care will help your tresses grow by grow!

According to the pros, shampoos and oils help your mane stay moisturized but your conditioner does help it grow. This is because dry, brittle strands can’t grow well. Conditioners help add protein and seal your hair cuticle to prevent damage.

So does it work? Yes!

6 steps p1

6 steps 1 Sebastian Professional International Lead Stylist Anthony Cole teamed up with hit fashion designer Christian Siriano for the designer’s Bridal 2018 collection. This stunning upsweep was inspired by the intricate layers of a flower petal and is the perfect look for your next formal event! Here, Cole breaks down how to style the look…

ONE.  Hairspray is misted throughout the roots and massaged into the scalp to create texture. A few pumps of Sebastian Professional Potion 9 and mousse are mixed and worked from root to tip to damped strands.

6 steps 2TWO.  Parting the hair to the left hand side, tresses are blow-dried straight in an upward motion with a round brush.

THREE.  Taking Sebastian Professional’s Craft Clay, warm the product up in your hands and work it into your hair, brushing the hair as you go. Tame any flyaways with a few pumps of oil.

6 steps 3FOUR. Starting at the top of the hair, create a French braid going downward so it hugs the perimeter of the face; secure the braid at the base of the neck.

6 steps 4FIVE.  With the remaining hair, create a herringbone braids and secure. For a more voluminous final look, gently pull the braid to make it larger.

SIX.  Finally, twist the braid into a bun at the nape of the neck and secure with bobby pins. Finish with hair spray.
