Your hair is a crucial part of your overall look, and dull or lifeless hair may make you feel self-conscious.

Furthermore, we have a tendency to damage our hair by using a lot of hot appliances.

Fortunately, a variety of natural treatments can help you restore moisture and shine to your hair.

Aloe Vera gel as a conditioner

Aloe vera is one of nature's most effective moisturizers. It moisturizes and softens dry hair.

Eggs also contain helpful enzymes and minerals that can aid in the development of hair. All you need to do is beat the egg until it turns smooth and massage this egg onto your hair evenly and wear a shower cap.

Then, let it rest for half an hour and wash your hair with a gentle shampoo.

Ingredients to avoid while buying a Hair Colorant/Dye

21st November 2020
"Watch out for harmful ingredients before you and your hair suffer."

Who doesn't like dyed hair that brings a better glow to our skin than our natural colored hair? Dyeing hair is fun but the aftermath might be preposterous for many of us. From frizziness to split-ends and extreme hair fall, your hair may face several problems after dyeing. The aftermath might frustrate you to the level where you wish to go completely bald, and believe me, few of them do. If you do not want to face such problems, then you must be cautious while buying your hair color. Not every ingredient in your hair dye is beneficial for your hair. Some are just chemicals to give a pleasant scent while applying but are harmful to your hair. To put you at ease, we've listed out the major ingredients that must be avoided in a hair dye to prevent your hair from any form of side-effects.


PPD is an ingredient that is widely used in most hair colorants, mostly in permanent hair colors. They are also known as oxidative. PPD is not really harmful if it's used up to 2% of the hair dye. But, if a hair dye contains PPD above the level, you may face several problems. Many people also face allergic reactions to PPD; as a result, it is widely discouraged. Even though PPD's usage is restricted in other cosmetic products, it has not been banned in any country till now. If you have used a hair dye with PPD make sure to follow the instructions strictly as it may result in something harmful otherwise. You can also find much PPD-free hair dye as well. 


PTD is used in most of the permanent hair colors. Natural hair color safety should be paramount in your choice of hair coloring dye. Many people also have reported having allergic reactions to PTD. The European Commission (Health and Consumer Safety) has concluded that the use of toluene-2, 5-diamine cannot be considered safe for hair coloring or hair shaft. So, try to avoid any PTD as far as possible. 


If you search Quaternium-15 on the internet, you'll find some articles referring to it as- a cosmetic ingredient to be afraid of or skin toxicant and allergen. Quaternium-15 can cause irritation and sensitization. It may also cause allergic reactions to your eyes. It is also a formaldehyde-releasing preservative. It may even lead to contact dermatitis. Mainly, hairdressers and janitors are affected by this. Even though the Cosmetics Directives of the EU has agreed up to 0.2% presence of the Quaternium in cosmetic products, try to avoid the products that contain quaternary ammonium compounds by reading the labels. 


Resorcinol is largely used in the rubber industry. I guess this sentence clears up your thought. Even though the chemical is combined with other chemicals such as potassium hydroxide to enable its safe use, it has a skin-deep hazard ratio of 9. Also, Resorcinol is the primary cause of hair dye related contact dermatitis. So, check out the label while buying hair dye and try to avoid it.

Things to Consider Before Applying Heat to Your Hair

11th January 2022
"Many of us are used to styling our hair with hot tools such as a blow-dryer for volume, a flat iron for smoothing, or curling iron for gentle waves."

Many of us are used to styling our hair with hot tools such as a blow-dryer for volume, a flat iron for smoothing, or curling iron for gentle waves.

While these tools are necessary for unit style, they may also be quite harmful to your hair if not used properly.

So here are some steps that need to be taken before applying the heat to our hair:

Always start on clean hair

Before using heat to your hair, ensure sure it is clear of any product or residue. If you have products on your hair, such as oils, they might fry in the heat and cause damage to your hair strands.

Apple cider vinegar is one of the greatest remedies for removing product buildup from your hair.

Furthermore, use a rinse-out conditioner to re-moisturize your hair after clarifying or deep washing it. Conditioners also act as a barrier between direct heat and your hair, which is beneficial.

Protein treatment

Treat your hair to an excellent protein deep-treatment mask before straightening to ensure that it is in the greatest condition to resist the impacts of heat.

Protein treatments fill up any gaps in your hair strands, making them stronger and less prone to heat damage.

Moreover, always look for thicker, richer protein treatments.

Also, you can use a moisturizing deep conditioner after your protein treatments to smooth out and provide moisture to your hair before heat styling.

Apply heat protection

Many of us are guilty of straightening our hair without using a heat protectant. One of the most critical items to have in your style kit is heat protectants.

It is usually advisable to apply a heat protectant while blow drying or using any hot equipment.

Heat protectants act as a barrier between the heat and your hair strands. They protect the cuticles of your hair to assist decrease moisture loss during heat straightening.

Manage the heat

After you've completed all of these processes, your hair is now ready for the heat.

Make sure your appliance's temperature is always set to low, and don't use more than two passes of the flat or curling iron on one piece.

Moreover, every now and again, give your hair a rest from the heat.
