Not to get confused, we’re going to help you choose the right mink lashes that suit your personality,occasion and style.

First of all, there are the 2D and the 3D My Extensionz lashes. To help you understand the difference better, we will demonstrate with the VIP (2D) and Still Pretty (3D) lashes in our collection (see photo below).

IMG_20150918_184117_edit  IMG_20150918_184326_edit

The 2D lashes have one layer of mink hair while the 3D lashes have more than one layer of Mink hair on them, giving you that 3-dimensional effect for your lashes. Both lash types are of the same quality and are equally amazing, soft and feathery to the touch.

Another awesome feature of My Lash Extensionz is its versatility. You can choose a natural, semi-natural or dramatic lash, depending on the look you want to create.

Natural

The natural lashes are simple and are recommended for daytime wear and for ladies who don’t want anyone to easily notice that they are wearing lashes. Examples of our natural lashes are “Werk” and “Love Me Loud”.

IMG_20150918_183822_edit  IMG_20150918_183738_edit

Semi-Natural

The semi-natural lashes are not too simple, yet not too dramatic. They are suitable for both day and night time wear, and for ladies who want to have a bit of fun, but not go all out. Our semi-natural lash is the one and only, Scandal.

Dramatic

Also very self explanatory, dramatic lashes are for the ladies who are daring, and love to draw attention to their eyes. Dramatic lashes are usually recommended for weddings, dinners and other special events. But hey! You can determine when you want to look dramatic 🙂

Examples of dramatic lashes are Mrs Bond and After Dark.

How To | Henna Gloss

unnamed (1)

Using henna to colour hair is a fabulous natural alternative to synthetic dyes, it is a non-damaging treatment for the hair and fades less quickly than artificial dyes. It  is a transparent dye that coats the hair shaft, binding with the keratin in the hair. It conditions the hair, and gives it shine and body.

Choose henna that is body art quality because this type of henna is pure and has nothing added to it. To release the dye effect of henna, use acidic juices (lemon, orange, etc.), tea, or coffee. Mix a paste that has the consistency of a yoghurt, cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and let it sit for 12-24 hours. Then apply to your hair and leave in for 2-4 hours or longer, for a deeper colour. Rinse out and style.

Things to know about henna before using it:

  • Henna will always be green. It won’t come in any other colour.
  • Henna will only give black hair a red tint.
  • Henna does not change hair colour, it only coats it with colour.
  • Henna stains don’t come off, so be sure to use gloves for mixing and application. Also, wear something old and cover your furniture with towels or bin bags.

Lesley of Freshlengths has some helpful videos on how to mix and apply henna to your hair.

Enjoy!

How to start a hair journey

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/proxy/8SuBwXc-3KEJcu1sx1JaWtADRedSwPckG_KDbE4RuCnvRnf3XHkOX1DBq4C1jdaEUhHJdp6460voRakEC62aJcZ732v3jF3jLlbKThg6bkW-Bwhe0jcws2ZozB27WcZcikdebI9l4NBMMk-vCXY-0YQctTyFGUItjKs=w429-h343-nc

So you’ve seen lots of bloggers/vloggers with long and beautiful hair and you’ve discovered that your hair can be long, it can flourish and it can be healthy, and you’ve finally decided to start your very own hair journey. Starting a hair journey can be a very exciting experience when done properly. It would ultimately change the way you look at yourself and is filled with fun and challenges, setbacks and growth in your hair as well as your personal life.

Here are a few tips to starting a successful hair journey:

hair-care-products

1. Build a Regimen: When starting a hair journey, you need to build a regimen and this is very important. A regimen is a list of products and routines that you would be using throughout your hair journey.  This is a list of everything you need in your regimen so you can determine what suits your needs.

  • A water based moisturizer: how to determine if a product is water based is by checking the ingredient list on the bottle. If water (aqua, H2O) is the first ingredient on the list, then it is water-based. If not, it doesn’t matter if it says moisturizing in the front, it is NOT a water-based moisturizer.
  • A sealing oil: This has to be either extra virgin or organic because it hasn’t been processed with heat or chemicals which is much healthier for the hair. “Sealing”  simply means adding a layer of oil on your hair after moisturizing it to lock in or “seal” in the moisture.
  • A good deep conditioner: actually, for this, you need two; a protein-based deep conditioner and a water-based conditioner. Your hair needs a protein/moisture balance to be strong, yet soft. Tipping the scales in any direction would lead to breakage – too much protein would make the hair brittle, and too much moisture would make the hair too soft and prone to breakage as well.
  • A moisturizing shampoo: this comes in two types as well; a sulphate-free shampoo, and a clarifying shampoo. A sulphate-free shampoo is one that doesn’t contain any sulphates like Sodium Lauryl Sulphate, Ammonium Lauryl Sulphate, etc. and a clarifying shampoo contains these sulphates because they help remove product build up from the scalp, but using them too frequently would strip your hair of it’s natural oils.

So with the basic products in place, let’s look at an example routine for your regimen. You will need to:

-Co-wash once a week

-Deep condition (water-based) weekly or bi-weekly

-Shampoo (sulphate-free) twice a month

-Clarify once a month

-Protein treatment (protein-based deep conditioner) once a month or every 6 weeks

2. Know The Lingo: The hair care community can be very confusing if you don’t know the language. Someone could be talking about needing a co-wash or a DC, and they wanna get from TWA to MBL and… it would be so overwhelming, so we’re going to help you out and give you a list of the most basic slangs used in the hair care world:

Co-Wash: washing your hair with conditioner only

DC: Deep Condition

HHJ: Healthy Hair Journey

TWA: Teeny Weeny Afro

Pre-Poo: Pre-Shampoo Treatment

3. Join a Hair forum: there are so many hair forums out there like Hairlista, Kiss.biz, Long Hair Care, you could join any of these as it will help you learn even more tips and tricks.

4. Take Pictures: Taking pictures along the way will help you keep track of your progress because sometimes, it may seem like your hair is not growing, and it would help to be able to look back and see where you are coming from.

5. Be Patient: Sadly, hair doesn’t grow overnight. Statistics show that hair grows at about 0.5” to 0.75” every month, so it wouldn’t help to sit in front of the mirror every single day checking if your hair is growing. Do a length check every 2 – 3 months to really see the effect of your hair journey, in the meantime, focus on something else; your job, school, etc. Doing this helps to make the time seem to go faster.

Its Not That Deep! Deep Conditioning Done Right

beyonce-in-shower-with-shower-cap

The harsh cold weather might be gone but humidity is here to stay. Deep conditioning is perfect for combating the frizz, but with deep conditioning, there are important things to consider.

Be Resourceful

Don’t go broke purchasing products. We can all be product junkies at times but necessary conditioning ingredients can be found in your own kitchen. Spending money on expensive products just doesn’t add up.

Once and Done

If you’re mixing your own deep conditioner, use it within three or four days. Keeping conditioner made from natural ingredients that spoil welcomes bacteria. Mix just enough for a one time use.

Too Much of A Good Thing

Deep conditioners reach their maximum capacity at 30 minutes and should be rinsed out after. Leaving it in for hours or overnight can cause your hair to become limp and weak.
