5 Bad Habits That Are Ruining Your Hair


Categories: Haircare, | 2 Comment(s)

Without realizing it, you are damaging your hair every single day. From over-use of products to tight ponytails, even the sun can affect the integrity of your hair. Some of the most common causes of hair damage may even be things that are a part of your regular beauty routine.

1. Over-Shampooing: Washing your hair everyday may seem like just good hygiene, when in fact, it may not be the best solution for our hair. It is important to match your hair’s specific needs to the right product. If you are a daily washer, use a product specifically designed to restore hair health like Daily Frequent Shampoo and Conditioner. This will protect your hair and scalp from being stripped of their natural oils.

2. Over-brushing: That old adage about brushing your hair 100 times per day to keep it full and shiny is just an old wives’ tale. While light daily brushing helps to spread natural oils throughout strands, over-brushing can lead to breakage and split-ends. If you’re an avid brusher, be sure to use moisturizing leave in treatment, like Whipped Cream or Leave in Conditioner to maintain your hair’s natural strength.

3. Ponytails and Braids: Braids in all shapes and sizes have been making a huge wave in beauty for the past year. Unfortunately, these super sweet styles pull hair tight and can lead to breakage. This goes double for braiding or ponying-up while strands are wet.

4. Flat Ironing & Blow drying: Every time you crank up the heat, you amp up the damage. Heat causes temporary damage to the hydrogen bonds in your hair. If you are using heat tools daily to create your look, you run the risk of permanent bond damage.

5. Sun Exposure: Sunlight can contribute to t he breakdown of hair’s protective hydrolipidic film, which helps to retain moisture. Too much exposure and you’ll get dry, brittle strands that can become frizzy and unmanageable.

milk_shake’s Integrity line is designed to protect hair from daily damage. It deeply nourishes your hair, from the inside out. Frequent use of Integrity products also eliminates frizz and promotes incredible shine. The secret ingredient? Muru Muru butter.

While coconut oil maybe having a beauty moment, Muru Muru butter is poised to take over the spotlight. This Brazilian tree nut butter is a super emollient that promotes moisture retention, restores shine and adds softness to over-dried, over processed strands. What’s more, it improves flexibility and creates a permeable barrier, to prevent moisture loss. This means that after regular use of milk_shake’s Integrity products, your hair will be stronger, healthier, shinier and truly beautiful.

SUMMER solutions for your hair


Categories: Haircare, | 0 Comment(s)

Basics of summer hair repair – How to undo the damage of sun, salt water, chlorine and other summer hair hazards. Tips from Bella Vita & Z.One Concept Educator Jeffrey Perry.

The number one issue in the summer is pool water with too much chlorine, and the lake waters with algae and chemical buildup from our farm lands. So my first recommendation would be Deep Cleansing Shampoo after every swim, it is SLS free, cleansing the hair deeply but gently, maintaining the hair’s moisture balance. Follow with Active Milk Mask for restructuring dry and damaged hair or Active Yogurt Mask for conditioning natural and color treated hair. Then I recommend following with the delectable scent and detangling qualities of the Leave In Conditioner which also has Integrity 41 and vitamin E that protect from UV rays helping to maintain hair color.

Glistening Spray, a polishing spray for frizzy hair, gives shine, eliminates static electricity and improves manageability and helps to maintain the hair’s moisture balance and is essential for humid days!

When my clients are out in the blazing sun at a ball game or working in the yard, Milk_Shake Lifestyling products create a natural style and have UV filters that protect their hair color. 

There is also Sun & More’s four step program. All Over Shampoo for hair and body. Beauty Mask, a deep mask to be used after every shampoo. Pleasure Oil, an oil and emollient for hair and body. Restorer Milk nourishing and protective for all hair types, it softens and hydrates hair during and after sun exposure.

Enjoy your summer and Have Fun!

Categories: Haircare, | 1 Comment(s)

With the right foods, your hair and your skin can be its healthiest. Eating right can help make your hair shine. And luckily, lots of the picks are good for your body’s health and good choices for your hair. Read on to find the best and tastiest hair care tips.

Oily fish like salmon contains beneficial Omega 3 fatty acid that can help prevent a dry scalp, as well as vitamin B-12 and iron. You won’t have a problem adding salmon to your diet since there are hundreds of ways to enjoy this beauty superfood. Try it grilled, baked, in your pasta, with a salad or in sushi.

2. BROCCOLI, spinach and chard. Dark green leafy veggies are full of vitamins A and C. Your body uses these foods to produce sebum, the oily secretion on your scalp that works like conditioner. These veggies also pack iron and calcium. Trade your lettuce for spinach and sauté broccoli for a quick and healthy side.

3. MILK, yogurt and cheese. Dairy products are plentiful of calcium and protein. Choose low-fat or fat-free versions so your waistline and hair can both benefit. Mix it with fruit or granola for a healthy breakfast or afternoon snack.

4. EGGS are another food that’s rich in protein. Eggs are loaded with four key minerals: zinc, selenium, sulfur and iron. Iron is especially important because it helps cells carry oxygen to the hair follicles, and too little iron is a major cause of hair loss, particularly in woman.

5. POULTRY, this everyday entrée is extraordinary when it comes to protein, as well as hair healthy zinc, iron and B vitamins to keep strands strong and plentiful. Because hair is nearly all protein, foods rich in protein are giving you the building blocks for hair.

6. OLIVE OIL no one wants dry, lackluster hair. But if your diet is too low in fat, that’s what could happen. This healthy oil contains beneficial vitamin E, so use it for your sautés as well your salads. About a teaspoon a day will do the trick.

7. BLUEBERRIES this low profitable berry was ranked number one in antioxidant activity by the US Department of Agriculture compared to 40 common fruits and vegetables. The antioxidants in blueberries protect you from premature aging, so add a cup to your yogurt or cereal every day.

Water. Drink plenty of water to keep your hair and your body well hydrated.

A balanced diet that’s heavy on fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low fat dairy foods is a great choice for the health of your body and your hair. Choose a mix of the foods on this list to ensure a healthy head of hair.
