Did you know that the human scalp has, on average, 100,000 hairs? So it's no surprise that just like ingrown hairs on the skin, hair follicles on the scalp can become blocked. Regular scalp massage will help unblock and promote new hair growth, but there's also a small portion of your hair that is in a "resting phase" and guess what? It's time to wake it up! For some time now, we've been schooled in using serums and conditioners to treat split ends and dry, unruly strands but now, it's your scalp's time to shine. As a few new scalp treatments begin to hit shelves, we've got the low down on what to buy and why. Are you ready to take the focus off your ends and nourish those roots? Thought so.
We've seen a bit of a surge in hair oil products on the market of late, so we thought we'd put the Sugar editors and their hair to the test! Hair oil can sometime have a bad rep when it comes to hair treatments, but it's interesting to know that they can be used before washing, as well as after on damp or dry hair. Hair oils promote not only beautifully nourished locks, but also coat the hair and provide shine. Some even seal off split ends! So click through to see the five we put to the test.
After spotting pictures of Candice Swanepoel at the Victoria's Secret Angel launch of Body by Victoria in New York yesterday, I couldn't help but notice how bright and glossy her hair looked. Although naturally fair, it's safe to say Candice foils her hair to keep it looking so blonde, but maintaining those highlights is a whole other ballgame! Now I'm no Victoria's Secret Angel (that actually makes me laugh out loud), but I do get my hair foiled every six to eight weeks so I'd like to see myself as a bit of an expert in maintaining a bright, glossy colour.
