Top 5 Products to Help You Cope with Hair Loss

2302878a3db54f76d4cc5ed673ffa93fHair loss occurs for a number of reasons. It could be due to a vitamin deficiency, extreme stress, a lack of protein, anemia, heredity, or an underlying medical condition. No matter the cause, hair loss can be traumatic in its own way. While it may pale in comparison to the actual reason for hair loss—for example, a serious illness—it can still rob an individual of his or her self-esteem and confidence. At TheBeautyPlace.com, we carry an extensive range of products formulated specifically for hair loss. Here are five of our favorites:

If your hair is visibly thinning, take a proactive stance and invest in the Bosley Revive Starter Pack ($19.99). You’ll find full-size bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and thickening treatment, all of which work in tandem to nourish weakened hair. With regular use, the products may halt the loss of hair and improve the health of your scalp, which is a great starting point for encouraging new growth.

One of the most effective products for thinning hair is Peter Thomas Roth Hair to Die For Hair Treatment ($39.99). This potent serum is formulated to treat the problem where it starts—at the root. When your roots are stronger, so, too, is the overall health of your hair. Over time, hair will grow in fuller and appear healthier. It’s safe to use on all hair types.

Just as concealer helps mask imperfections on the face, Toppik Hair Building Fibers ($53.89) provide coverage of those areas on your head that need a little extra coverage. From bald spots to thinning spots, this product covers the area with natural-looking fibers. Best of all, it’s available in nine shades, ranging from gray to black to blonde to red, all of which leave behind a subtle, genuine-looking appearance.

One of the world’s leading companies in the battle against hair loss is Nioxin. The brand’s Scalp Therapy System ($15.99) is an indulgent conditioner that drenches hair with moisture while strengthening the scalp and stimulating shine. The product is enriched with beneficial nutrients that promote the overall health of your scalp, which in turn helps encourage new hair growth.

Hair Loss 101: What It Is and How You Can Deal

Dealing with hair loss is stressful. It affects more than just your appearance—it can also do a number on your self-esteem. Whether it’s caused by illness, stress, or heredity, hair loss doesn’t have to a losing battle. There are a number of ways to combat the problem and restore your confidence. At TheBeautyPlace.com, you’ll find dozens of items devoted to hair loss, ranging from shampoos to treatments to vitamins. Here are a few that may help you.

Formulated to boost your hair’s texture while preventing breakage, the Nioxin Hair System Kit 1 ($29.99) is designed for normal to thin-looking hair types. The three-piece kit includes a cleanser that eliminates oil and residue from the scalp; a light conditioner to drench hair with moisture without weighing it down; and a scalp treatment infused with nourishing antioxidants and refreshing peppermint oil. Used as directed, hair feels stronger, looks fuller, and is less prone to everyday bretoppik-fibersakage.

While you wait for your treatment to kick in, you may want to cover your hair loss with a concealer that matches your hair color. Toppik Hair Building Fibers ($32.99) are available in nine different shades, ranging from white and light blonde to auburn and black. Using it is simple—just sprinkle the fibers onto your hair. They’ll adhere to your strands, creating the appearance of natural hair and staying put even in the face of inclement weather. It’s a quick fix that actually makes a difference in just seconds.

Much like the rest of your body, your scalp is at its best when it’s given a good workout. And though it would be a dream to have a personal stylist wash your hair and give you a scalp massage every single day, that’s probably not your reality. You can take care of your scalp yourself, though, with Bosley Follicle Energizer ($13.29). It’s designed to stimulate blood flow to the scalp by exfoliating dead skin, resulting in healthier follicles more likely to produce hair growth.

“You are what you eat” isn’t just an old adage that means nothing. You truly can improve your overall health by controlling the foods and supplements you consume. Lack of copper and selenium can contribute to hair loss, which is where the Bosley Healthy Hair Vitality Supplement ($15.99) comes in. This vitamin contains copper, selenium-rich horsetail, and cysteine. The latter is an amino acid that may encourage healthy hair growth. Bosley suggests taking one to two pills per day; with regular use, you may notice a difference.

revita-eyelash-growthHair loss isn’t limited merely to the strands on your head. If your eyelashes are looking a little sparse, you may benefit from DS Labs Revita.EPS Eyelash Growth Stimulator ($25.99). Made with an amino-rich peptide complex, this serum stimulates hair growth and is easy to apply thanks to its pen-like applicator. Simply apply it to the roots of your lashes, much like you would eyeliner. Used twice a day every day for at least two weeks, you might notice that your lashes look fuller and healthier.

CELEBRITY SPOTLIGHT: Lorde’s Beauty Transformation

Lorde Lorde--2015-CFDA-Vogue-Fashion-Fund-Awards--07-662x994

Beauty transformations are just that – a thing of beauty. We love seeing celebrities evolve in their style – whether it be hair or makeup or attire.

Known for her signature style of long curls and dark lips, Lorde surprised everyone on the red carpet for CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards.

We love the 18-year-old’s big curls, and she rocks it so well, but it’s great to see her experiment with new looks.

The “Royals” singer looked uber-sophisticated. Not only was her hair sleeker, but she had cut her long locks! A glossy hairstyle matched with demure makeup, the young star nailed the red carpet.

So how do you get this sleek do when you have voluminous curls?

  1. Begin with a treatment mask. Curls mask any hair damage really well so a hair mask will help get your hair in better shape. We suggest TIGI Bed Head Urban Antidotes Recovery Mask to give your locks moisture and help repair any damage.
  2. Towel dry hair gently. Follow with a heat protectant to shield hair from damage.
  3. Section off hair and blow dry with a round brush. We love Bio Ionic’s newest hair dryer!
  4. After blow drying comes flat ironing. If your hair soaks up product quickly, we suggest adding another does of heat protection or using another hair oil. Joico’s Protect and Shine Serum can be used during ironing and as a final step to leave it sleek and shiny.

What are your thoughts on Lorde’s new look? #WeWantToKnow!

Looking fabulously undone, models’ hair was simply tucked under to create the illusion of bobs.

Stylist Sam McKnight gave the step-by-step to #GETTHELOOK

1. Use a hair wax and a spritz of texturizing spray to ensure hair strands are kept off the face. But be sure to leave a few wisps of hair for that undone feel.

2. Braid the ends of the hair – you want to approximate how short you want your bob.

3. Tuck in the braid under at the nape of the neck to pin in place with bobby pins.

NEED A HAIR TOOL? WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE BUYING

salon-blow-out-intro

We love our heat – blow dryers, straighteners, and curling irons – the works.

With so many features to consider and different types. it can be a daunting item to have on your shopping list.

We gathered the important deets you need to know before choosing one of these items to be your partner for years to come.

Hair Dryers – Master of Blowouts

There’s nothing like the feeling of an AMAZING blowout. Well, almost nothing. Hair dryers are probably one of the more complicated hair tools to consider given the different ones on the market (of both good and bad quality).

First consider the power of the hair dryer. 1800 watts is ideal for fine to normal hair types. 1800 – 2500 watts would be better for thicker, coarser hair. These numbers determine how efficient your hair dryer is and the right watts for your hair type can cut your drying time significantly.

High quality dryers will be on the pricey side  but they have the ability to improve the appearance of your hair and allow it to look healthy. Low quality dryers typically have low wattage and intense heat that damages hair, leaving it dull and frayed.

You also need the cool shot. It’s necessary and many don’t understand its function. Use the cool shot to help seal in your style, bring out your hair’s shine and reduce frizz.

We prefer hair dryers with adjustable heat settings. This helps avoid heat damage during styling and makes it ideal for styling hair one day and restyling the next without using too much high heat. Attachments concentrates the airflow of the dryer.

There are also different types. Ceramic/Titanium dryers are ideal for curly hair, keratin-treated hair, frizzy hair and hair prone to heat damage. Ionic dryers are ideal for dry, damaged hair, frizzy hair and coarse, thick hair types.

For the wanderlust hair stylers, blow dryers with dual voltage are ideal for overseas trips.

Flat Irons – Sleek and Always Chic

Let’s just start off with the cardinal rule – always use heat protection products with tools coming into direct contact with heated plates.

Flat irons have different plate types. Similar to hair dryers, straighteners have ceramic plates, ceramic and teflon plates, tourmaline/ceramic plates, and even ceramic diamond plates. Ceramic plates helps add shine and doesn’t cause friction between the hair strands and plates. Ceramic plates with non-stick teflon coating prevents snagging. Tourmaline/ceramic plates contain ionic and infrared technology that helps hair appear healthier and makes it manageable leaving it frizz-free. Ceramic diamond plates are of high-performing quality in less strokes with a much smoother glide.

You also want to make note of the width of the straightener. For short hair lengths, 1/2 inch flat irons are ideal. Short to medium hair lengths benefit best from a 1 inch while longer hair lengths will be handled best by 1 1/2 inch to 2 inch plates.

While thicker hair can handle high heat, those of us with fine hair would benefit from a flat iron that has adjustable temperature settings to reduce the amount of heat damage.

Curling Irons/Wands – Curls Run The World

Curling iron or curling wand? How will we ever decide! At TheBeautyPlace.com, editors are definitely partial to the curling wands due to the versatility of curly styles we can create. Curling irons have hair clamps to keep her secure while the heat works its magic. Curling wands are clamp-free but can be trickier to use for the beginner curler and can be used with a protective glove.

There are also spiral irons that help guide the beginner on where to place the hair.

Similar to dryers and flat irons, these are made of different materials.

Ceramic irons/wands helps heat hair evenly  and smooths frizz. Tourmaline helps the wand heat quickly for quicker styling while titanium smoothes hair but can also have high heat. Be sure Try to avoid any metal barrels, metal heats up quickly but does the most heat damage to hair.

Fine hair types should pick an iron/wand that has adjustable heat settings to prevent high heat from frying hair.

Hair Week: TEXTURIZING SPRAY VS. DRY SHAMPOO

texture hair

This week at TheBeautyPlace.com we are dishing out hair hacks, tips, styles and more for all of our beautiful readers.

Texturizing sprays and dry shampoos are two hair products that are found behind the scenes during runway shows, movie sets, beauty salons and your bathroom. With similar functionality, it is hard to choose which one you should use.

Texturizing sprays are considered the hybrid between the sea salt sprays and dry shampoo. It is ideal for styling to create versatile styles without weighing hair down. Use for beach waves, second day hair, ponytails with texture, braids with texture – anything that may need more dimension. For a more voluminous look, spray it all over by lifting larger sections of hair and spraying throughout. You can also spray it in concentrated sections for better hold or a more defined style.

Dry shampoos are known as the hair refresher. Ideal in helping hair last longer in between washes, it helps remove oil from hair. It can help boost volume depending on how much product is used. Perk up hair by lifting hair in two inch sections and spray a light amount 10-12 inches away from your roots. Many dry shampoos may leave a dry powdery look – just blend. Use your fingertips to tousle your hair to make the powder blend into strands. Work a slim brush with bristles through your hair and you’re done!

Dry shampoos tend to help deodorize hair as well.

Texturizing sprays are great for styling but as it adds more product buildup, you may need to wash your sooner than if using dry shampoos.

Many products have become 2-in-1 adding texture and refreshing hair or refreshing hair and adding volume.
