3) Straighten your hair:

The best way to get out those bed-time hair kinks is your trusty hair straightener. While we sleep, the friction and constant tossing and turning can cause hair to flatten and stiffen in certain positions. Use a straightener to press out those kinks to achieve a freshly styled look.

10 Tips for Healthy Hair

Hair is an important part of the human body and believe it or not, judging by the life of our hair we are able to tell what we are doing right and wrong healthwise. Diet and lifestyle are major contributing factors to the way our hair grows and shines. We have come up with 10 tips for healthy hair that we swear by. Follow these 10 tips for healthy hair for the best possible results that will leave you and your hair happy for a lifetime.

The Contributing factors: Diet

Our hair is an exceptional declaration of our internal health. The same way a shiny coat would specify a healthy animal, also indicates a healthy person. Our hair is constantly growing and requires a combination of nutrients to support strength and shine. If the correct protein and and nutrients are not being taken then our hair will be the first to show. Dull hair with a substantial amount of breakages and oily/dry roots are signs of unhealthiness. Some of the must have requirements within our diets for healthy hair include protein, essential fatty acids (fats), vitamin c, beta carotene, silica and magnesium. Diet plays a vital part in understanding 10 tips for healthy hair.

A Healthy Diet For Hair

10 tips for healthy hair

Beautiful, shiny hair

Lifestyle

Our lifestyles play a huge part in the overall well-being and health of our hair. Bad habits like smoking and excessive heat damage are two major impacting factors that can create unhealthy hair. Smoking and stress having been linked to baldness means that the chemicals and toxins that make their way into the skin and hair follicles creates slower growth and hair thinning.

Heat damage and excessive dying and bleaching is by far the most common reason for unhealthy hair among most women. Excessive blow drying and hair straightening without heat protector will create severely heat-damaged hair. Cutting down on heat damage, hair supplements and a correct diet are always useful in promoting a healthier shine again. Read below as we list 10 tips for healthy hair to get you back on track with gorgeous shiny locks.

10 tips for healthy hair

Heat damaged hair

10 Tips for Healthy Hair

1) Supplements – Silica, spirulina and vitamin C capsules are great for promoting growth and sustaining a healthier shine through your hair.

2) Treatments and conditioners – Frequently using a hair treatment or organic conditioner on the hair are great ways to keep your hair extra silky.

3) Sleeping method – The satin pillow is important in stopping unwanted friction throughout your hair while you are asleep and unaware of your movements.

4) Brushing – Regularly brushing your hair is a very underrated technique to contribute towards hair growth. Brushing the hair and untangling unwanted knots promotes growth on the hair by the subtle pulling on the hair follicles.

5) Heat damage – Curling, straightening, blow-drying and dying the hair are great ways to change our looks as the seasons pass, especially when fashion and trends are always changing. However, over styling and over heating the hair is extremely unnecessary and causes extreme heat damage. Try letting your hair flow naturally for a week, no straightener, no hair dryer, and a minimal amount of product in the hair (not too many washes) is a great way to temporarily sustain your hair’s health.

6) Diet –  Eat lots of protein, magnesium and vitamin C infused foods for the best hair results.

7) Regular trims – Taking a frequent trip to the hairdresser for a quick trim will eventually take your hair through leaps and bounds in the growth department.

8) Hairstyles – Some people may or may not be aware but some of your hairstyle choices play a part in your hair’s health. Avoid tightly pulled ponytails and slick hair straightened locks and try more loose braids and plaits for the ultimate results.

9) Hair accessories – Although it may be easiest to jump out of bed and slip a simple rubber band on your hair, try investing in specially designed elastic hair bands that won’t cut into the hair causing breakage and knots.

10) Last but not least, drink up! Water is very underestimated in it’s healing abilities once it comes to hair. A cold water rinse will leave your hair nice and glossy and ready to go about your day. Water also reinforces vitamin consumption and helps efficient hair growth. Try drinking at least two litres of water a day and watch your hair gleam with happiness!

We hope these 10 tips for healthy hair has increased your knowledge on simple hair care.

 A Few Extra Tips for Healthy Hair Extensions

1) Here at ZALA, our hair extensions are made of 100% human remy hair meaning they can be washed. However, washing hair extensions can shorten the life of them as they do not receive natural oils from the roots and scalp. Try to avoid washing them more than once every three months.

2) Although we allow for 5% shedding in the weights of our sets, always brush the extensions thoroughly to avoid excessive and unwanted shedding.

3) Always be sure to store your extensions in a flat dry place also avoiding sunlight.

Ombre vs balayage

Ombre vs balayage hair. The battle is on! Ombre and balayage have been two of the biggest rising trends in hair since 2011. Each technique usually portrays a similar result, however the two techniques are entirely different. We discuss how to achieve both of these trends, how effective each technique is and which is more popular. Read on to find out more about ombre vs balayage and how ZALA can help you achieve a similar look with our balayage clip in hair extensions.

So who’s who? : Ombre

Ombre refers to the lightening of the hair, fading from a dark colour at the very roots to a lighter shade at the ends. Ombre is usually a very striking technique and stands out among other hair colours as it grabs attention and the colour change is usually very drastic. Ombre is also popular using bright and flamboyant rainbow colours such as green and blue. This also includes other pastel shades such as lilac and fairy floss (purple and pink). Below are a few images of ombre hair to give you the right idea.

So who’s who? : Balayage

Balayage – (French,) meaning “to sweep” is perfect for those looking for a new hair style with little to no up-keep. The easy to manage and no maintenance for this hair style means a summery glow in your hair all year round. Balayage is when a colourist uses sweeping techniques with the brush when colouring hair to achieve a natural sunkissed look without any drastic or uneven line between the two tones in the hair. Balayage is beautiful in that it is more of a very subtle and gradual dark to light change, hence it’s popularity. Below are some images that suggest the balayage hair trend.

Brown Balayage

Caramel Balayage

Ombre VS Balayage

Many people are undecided on whether ombre or balayage is best for their hair. The two differences between the shades you want in your hair may help you determine this result. The darker the hair, the easier it is to achieve the ombre look. You can go from the darkest roots and lighten the ends with bright and crazy colours if you are looking for that head-turning hair style. However, if you know you are after a more gradual and subtle change from shade to shade, balayage sounds like the perfect choice for you. Some people want lighter ends of hair but with a more natural effect.

What we offer at ZALA

Here at ZALA, we offer all different shades of ombre and balayage. Burnt Toffee #1B/12, Cocoa Toffee #2/12, Vanilla Mocha #4/613 and Cocoa & Red Wine #2/99J for those more daring people after the ombre effect. Rum & Raisin #1B/4, Chocolate Swirl #2/6, Caramel Slice #6/12 and Cheesecake #12/613 for those balayage fans looking for more gradual results.

We hope this insight on ombre vs balayage has helped you on your colour journey on achieving the best possible results for ombre and balayage hair.

Summer Balayage

The summer balayage effect has been the one of the biggest trends in hair for the past four years. Whether you’re after the drastic brown to beach blonde look, or more of a gradual brown to caramel balayage, you’ve come to the right place. Here at ZALA, we show you how to achieve the perfect summer balayage.

summer balayage

The Summer Balayage Effect

Why Balayage?

Summer balayage is great if you want that ultra sun-kissed look without the high maintenance of a blonde or honey caramel shade in your hair. If you’re okay with the ‘grown-out roots’ look, summer balayage is great for you. With Summer just around the corner, brighten up the ends of your chestnut brown hair with some warm caramel and honey blonde tones. This will give you a perfect everyday beachy glow.

Summer Balayage: How?

Depending on how dark your hair is, there are easy and effective DIY ways to achieve this natural summer balayage look. However, the darker your hair, the harder it becomes to achieve those cooler blonde tones in your hair. Here at ZALA, we would recommend an appointment with a professional colourist if you have black to dark brown hair. This will enable a subtle and gradual change from a dark to a cool tone. A summer balayage should not require bleach depending on the shade you want to go.

Who does it best?

Our favourite celebs famous for their balayage locks include the likes of Khloe Kardashian, Mila Kunis and Lauren Conrad. Khloe’s hair goes from a rich brown to a beautiful caramel blend. Mila’s hair is a darker chocolate brown that blends into a warm toned brown whereas Lauren’s beautiful caramel roots slightly change to a nice beach blonde tone.

How to remove tape hair extensions

How to remove tape hair extensions

ZALA tape hair extensions

Step 1: Locate

First of all, locate all the starting points between the tape hair extensions and your own hair. This may be easier if you tie up all your remaining hair with sectioning clips or elastic bands.

 

How to remove tape hair extensions

Locate the tape hair extensions

Step 2: Spray

After locating the tapes, spray on our ZALA tape hair extensions solvent/glue remover. (This is a great cleaner/remover without the harsh chemicals; this solvent is fast acting on most soft bonds adhesives and tapes while still being gentle on the skin). Do not use a sparse amount of solvent, you must be generous while spraying to ensure you have enough solvent to remove the adhesive on the tape. A limited amount of solvent will work poorly.

How to remove tape hair extensions

Spray on solvent/glue remover

Step 3: Apply

If while removing the tape hair extensions you feel that your own hair is pulling therefore causing damaging friction, keep applying the solvent until the tapes are removed easily without anymore pull on your own natural hair.

How to remove tape hair extensions

ZALA solvent/glue remover

Step 4: Wash

There is a slight possibility that all the tapes may still not be 100% removed. We would highly recommend for you to wash your hair with cold water, while also scrubbing quite forcefully. But be sure that you are also gentle enough not to damage your own roots. Use an adequate amount of shampoo on your hair until your hair is completely clean. Be sure to never use hot water for the wash as there is a slight chance it will melt the adhesive on the tape. The reason for cold water is because it solidifies the glue, and as a result it will remove the adhesive.

Step 5: Dry

Even while drying your hair after you have washed it use a cold setting as hot air will have the same effect that hot water has on the adhesive.

Step 6: Comb

After you have dried your hair, comb through efficiently to remove any remaining pieces of tape. The key on how to remove tape hair extensions is to be patient and coherent, and you will achieve great results with little to no great deal of effort.

Clip in hair extensions vs tape hair extensions

The battle begins!

The battle is on! Clip in hair extensions vs tape hair extensions. Which hair extension method is best? Which is more popular? Step by step, we break down the positives and negatives between clip in hair extensions and tape hair extensions. Read below to find out the results for clip in hair extensions vs tape hair extensions.

 Clip in hair extensions

clip in hair extensions

Clip in hair extensions

Clip in hair extensions are the least permanent technique of all the hair extension methods available today. The hair weft has small clips sewn into them. A set of clip in hair extensions will usually have about eight or nine strips that are all placed at different sections of the head. This creates the right amount of body and volume for the person using them.

 

Positives:

1) Comfort + speed + easiness for how they can be applied/removed.
2) Here at ZALA, you will be guaranteed value for the weight/thickness.
3) You can adjust the thickness/volume to your needs.
4) Clip in hair extensions are very hair safe meaning no damage can be made to the natural hair follicle once applied.

Negatives:

1) They cannot be worn during sleep.This may cause excessive friction against the already sensitive scalp.
2) Depending on the brand and quality, the clips may move around in the weft causing them to separate from the weft. At ZALA, we use only the best quality professional salon silicon clips to ensure no movement occurs.
3) Clip in hair extensions can be harder to layer to match your hair as each application might be slightly different.

 

Tape hair extensions

tape hair extensions

Tape hair extensions

Tape hair extensions are a widely known hair extension technique. They are designed for people who are seeking those extra inches of hair but would like a more permanent method of extension. They come attached with strips of clear double sided tape which is then attached to the base of the weft. These wefts are then taped to the start of the hair at the scalp. This results in a longer lasting method of hair extension.

Positives:

1) Tape hair extensions can last 7-9 weeks, and can be re-applied 4 times when using high quality hair like ZALA.
2) They look very natural and can be styled into your hair easily with no extensive effort involved.
3) If they are applied correctly they should be a safe form of hair extension for your hair. This is ensuring that you follow the correct care routine for your particular set of tape hair extensions.

Negatives:

1) If they are not applied correctly they can be messy and not sit secure or flat against the head.
2) Application experience is needed to apply the tape hair extensions.
3) Tape hair extension solvent is needed to remove them. You will normally need two people to complete this process.

 

Clip in hair extensions vs tape hair extensions….so who has won? The results are a tie!

Clip in hair extensions and tape hair extensions are extremely difficult to compare against each other as they both offer completely different benefits and limitations. We are just happy that there are two very suitable existing techniques available to cater to everyone’s personal lifestyle and needs.
