How to keep your Blonde Bright!

Many of us love our blonde locks but don’t love the upkeep. The struggle to keep your blonde hair bold and bright is real. Even when you’re diligent about your blonde hair care routine, but over time, even natural elements can cause your cool tresses to become brassy, dull and feel a little bit brittle. The consistent heat from your styling tools are damaging your already frail hair strands and starting to look a little bit…..straw-like. Your platinum highlights are looking a lot more warmer, more yellow and less bright. Your hair isn’t as shiny. You go back to the salon way sooner than you wish you had to because #root and #brass and #deadends.

However, we argue that blonde hair no longer needs to be a chore! We have compiled some easy tips and tricks to follow to help maintain your brightness,  so that you can look salon fresh for longer.

Wash Hair less often

 Yes, yes, we know you’ve heard it all before but washing your hair less is crucial for faux blondes. Frequent washing strips your scalp of its natural oils, which in turn stimulates additional oil production and makes you feel the need to wash it even more. Try just rinsing in the shower after a day at the beach or pool, and see if that gets rid of some extra oil. In place of regular shampoo, try INSIGHT Antioxidant Rejuvenating Mask, apply to wet hair, distributing evenly. Leave on 5/10 minutes, rinse thoroughly, this natural product protects the hair from external aggressions.

Choose colour Safe Shampoo

Experts recommend that after dyeing your hair it is essential to choose a specific shampoo for dyed hair, which will provide hydration, brightness and intensify the colour. INSIGHT Protective Shampoo is a line designed to brighten and enhance the colour, revitalizing the hair. The formulas are rich with extracts and natural oils, which protects the hair while preserving the brightness of colour. Ensuring colour lasts longer and is more resistant to washing.

Use Conditioner or Hair Mask

Professional stylists recommend alternating both products. The use of conditioning cream is mandatory to close the hair cuticle well and to better reflect the light by enhancing the brightness and enhancing the colour. You can apply hair masks for dyed hair that will enhance the colour, prolonging colour and smooth condition of the hair.

Use Anti Yellow Shampoo

In addition to using a specific shampoo for coloured hair, it is advisable to wash it with a Anti Yellow Shampoo to remove any undesired yellow and golden reflections all while enhancing and brightening grey and bleached hair to help achieve more intense brightness.

Try rinsing your hair with cool temperature water for the final rinse

One step you can add to this routine is making sure to finish off with a cold rinse each time you wash your hair. This will help keep your hair lustrous and shiny. If you think that water temperature isn’t important, think again because it actually is. If you learn how to use water of different temperatures to your favour, then it may really benefit your hair. Hot water can make your hair easy to break and weaken the hair roots.

Reduce the Heat

Try to blow-dry your hair as little as possible and give the blow dryer a break and go natural if you can. Avoid flat-irons, too, as they will do further damage to already-dry hair. Save the hot tools for special occasions and embrace your hair’s natural texture on a day-to-day basis. Try a natural hair oil to discipline frizz without heat for an effortlessly smooth undone style. When your hair is still damp reach for INSIGHT Styling oil NON OIL or liqiud crystals and distribute through your strands, —this will help to keep the frizz at bay! Then either air dry loose or style in a braid for a more controlled texture once your hair has dried.

In conclusion, follow these easy tips and tricks to help maintain your brightest,

  1. Wash hair less
  2. Make your colour last by using Colour Safe Shampoo
  3. Finish your hair wash with cold water
  4. Read the labels and avoid sulfates
  5. Don’t skip conditioning
  6. Try using an ANTI-YELLOW Shampoo
  7. Use hot tools less
  8. Deep condition your hair with hair mask

There you have it! These tips will help restore that luster to your locks, and keep your hair looking refresh and healthy! So what are you waiting for? Throw those hair worries to the wind and book that appointment today, and invest in your favourite hair staples.

FRIZZY HAIR Concerns?

If you suffer from frizzy hair, you may notice that it gets a lot worse in humidity or rainy weather.

Going Going Blonde…Here’s our top tips to achieve healthy blonde locks!

When we see our favourite celebs go brunette to blonde in the blink of an eye it’s easy to get swept up in the idea of having lighter locks in a heart beat, but sometimes it’s not that easy. Let’s quickly talk about the top 4 things you should know before going blonde…So, you’re thinking of going blonde? What shade of blonde? Light blonde, dark blonde, ash blonde, platinum, golden, silver, creamy, buttery, caramel, strawberry or balayage…it’s like a buffet! But with so many choices, dyeing your hair blonde isn’t quite as simple as it sounds. We share with you the top 4 things you need to know before picking up the peroxide. When it comes to going blonde it usually involves dramatic highlighting to the hair as well an up-keep and maintenance schedule that is pretty demanding… we are talking weekly treatments and possibly monthly salon appointments.

  • SAY NO TO DIY

At home box dye kits are good for reviving dull hair or to go a shade or two lighter (or darker) but when it comes to changing the genetic colour of your hair, leave it to the experts.
DIY kits can do some serious damage to your hair so its best to make sure you visit your local INSIGHT salon to help you create a plan of attack to get you to the perfect blonde! Now depending on what your natural hair colour is, what type of hair you have, what shade of blonde you want, and whether you’ve dyed your hair previously or not, will all determine the method needed to bleach your hair, and how your colourist will achieve it. There are so many things to consider for a successful bleach job. It’s both science and an art form!

INSIGHT offers INCOLOR, a high quality dye system, with a low ammonia content, highly hydrating and protective. Guarantees intense colours and long-life reflections, while protecting the hair fibre. Hydra-Color® is an innovative blend of natural esters 55 (Lauryl Lactate, Octyldodecyl Lactate, Tristearyl Citrate), derived from Lactic and Citric Acids, with a protective, but above all moisturising, action. During the colouring process, our Hydra Color formula has an unique reaction that unlocks a new level of hydration and colour intensity.

  • IT’S A PROCESS

Dramatically changing the colour of your hair can do some major damage to it, particularly if you’re going from dark brown to light blonde. How much damage depends on the current condition of your hair (which is why it is so important to have your colour done in salon). But don’t fret! Here at INSIGHT PROFESSIONAL, we use the ground breaking INCOLOR / HYDRA-COLOR® SYSTEM which goes hand-in-hand when it comes to blondes and highlights. INCOLOR is a professional formula with hydra colour blend, which contains a high percentage of natural derived ingredients. On average, more than 90% of the total formula is composed of raw materials of natural origin. Hydrating repairing masks, oil treatments, and deep conditioners are also highly recommended after colouring hair. Speeding up the lightening process will put your hair at risk of breakage and split ends. Big changes need time and patience. Depending on the look you are after, your stylist will discuss the highlighting technique best suited to you as well as a toner.

  • CONSIDER THE MAINTENANCE

Dyed blonde hair requires an extra dose of care and conditioning. Well once you go blonde your hair won’t be the same. Not only have you altered the colour of your hair but also the structural bonds, decreasing elasticity and the ability to absorb moisture. These changes will make your hair vulnerable, which means blonde hair needs more TLC. Expect to add 30 minutes to your morning routine, thanks to the additional conditioning and styling required. In terms of products, no doubt you will need a moisturising shampoo and conditioner, one that also combats brassiness. AFTER THE COLORING SERVICE, THE HAIR NEEDS TO RECEIVE A SPECIFIC TREATMENT TO RESTORE THE NATURAL PH OF THE HAIR AND TO HELP CLOSE THE SCALES ON HAIR’S CUTICLE. Our POST CHEMISTRY products help to maintain a long-lasting beautiful colour, ensuring the protection and health of the hair. If your blonde or grey hair turns yellow, this can happen because of the weather conditions and pollution, which penetrate into the hair making it dull. For this reason you will need to try INCOLOR Anti-yellow Shampoo, to remove the undesired yellow reflections typical of grey or blonde hair (both natural and bleached). The Anti-Yellow Shampoo removes any undesired yellow and golden reflections all while enhancing and brightening grey and bleached hair, neutralising the tendency to yellow, and leaving the hair soft and brighter. In terms of salon visits, depending on how fast your hair grows, you will be making appointments every 4-6 weeks for touch-ups. This is where Balayage (the gradual faded look from the roots to ends) can alleviate your time in the salon, however does require similar maintenance to keep locks healthy and moisturised.

  • HYDRATION IS ESSENTIAL

There’s no denying it, bleaching and colouring does damage your hair structure. Colored hair is high maintenance, but looking after your locks will pay off. Choose special deep conditioning care products with moisturising nutrients. Leave-in conditioner is the answer, and super easy to add to your home haircare routine. Our tip: apply a hair treatment twice a week. To get the most out of the regenerative treatment, wrap your hair up in a damp warm towel and let the mask do its job for 30 minutes to BRIGHTEN, ENHANCE AND REVITALISE COLOURED HAIR. Thanks to INSIGHT COLORED HAIR  its formula’s are rich of extracts and natural oils, to protect the hair while preserving the brightness of colour, ensuring it lasts longer and is more resistant to fading.

Hair that’s lost its ability to absorb moisture is not healthy, and unhealthy hair is impossible to style. Sadly, most of us tend to use the flat iron to smooth the frizz for a slick finish, making the problem worse. Remember avoid heat, keep hair from going brittle with a daily dose of hydration, and always use a good protein rich treatment like our INSIGHT Damaged Hair range to help protect the hair and restore its natural hydration!

What Are You Really Putting in your Hair! Why Synthetic Colourants Aren’t Worth It!

Take a look at some of the mainstream personal care products you will find in store shelves, you will see a rainbow of lovely shades. Who doesn’t like something colourful? I know I do. Colour makes things look beautiful and companies know this, they also have an effect on how we feel and perceive the things around us. Unfortunately, most manufacturers rely on artificial dyes to fill their products with colour. Here’s everything you need to know about artificial colourants, and why they’re worth avoiding wherever you can.

What are Artificial Colours?

Artificial Colours and dyes are chemical additives that change the shade of soaps, lotions, shower gels, face creams, shampoos, styling products and you are more likely to come into contact with Artificial Colours frequently. These dyes are often made up from a variety of synthetic chemicals. It takes up to 25 synthetic chemicals to create one artificial die. If a product is purple, it could potentially have 50 or more chemicals just in the colour. The problem is that synthetic colours are made from coal tar or petroleum which can be contaminated with heavy metals such as lead and arsenic. When absorbed on our skin/scalp, Artificial Colours can increase the risk of irritation, blocked pores, breakouts and sensitivity, but some Artificial Colours are more harmful than others.

What are the Impacts of Artificial Colours?

These toxins and chemicals increase your risk of skin sensitivity and irritation, and are known for blocking pores and increasing the risk of acne breakouts. If synthetic dyes are included in products that you leave on your skin, such as moisturisers and hair masks, they may be absorbed into your body where they can cause additional damage. Do these chemicals cause cancer when applied topically? So far, we’re not sure, as we don’t have many studies on the subject. Most commercial manufacturers of cosmetics & hair don’t believe we are in danger because artificial colours make up only a small amount of cosmetic formulations, but what researchers haven’t determined is the risk of long-term use of synthetic colourants in your products. While awaiting for a response that dispels all doubt, our laboratories at INSIGHT formulate according to precise ecological & health conscious parameters & decided to formulate our products without synthetic dyes, along with many other nasty chemicals that have been avoided.

How to avoid Artificial Colours?

Artificial Colours and dyes are everywhere and it may seem near impossible to avoid these chemicals in your daily products, but you can do it. In fact, once you start shopping for more natural brands, you’ll find it easier and easier as you go.

  • Keep an eye out for artificial colourants when purchasing mainstream personal care products & read labels carefully to avoid chemical colours like Blue 1, Green 3, FD&C Yellow 6, etc.
  • Shop for natural and organic products that have more ingredients you can actually pronounce.
  • If you really want colour, look for products coloured with natural dyes made from organic plants and herbs.

Synthetic colourants may make a product look better, but they don’t make them better for you. Artificial Dyes, at best may irritate your skin and cause your children to be hyperactive, at worst they can risk your health irretrievably.

Why Hair Loss Happens & How to Regrow Hair Naturally

Nobody likes losing their hair, but most of us will experience some degree of hair loss during the course of our lives. Here is your basic guide to hair loss, diagnostic criteria and treatment options.

The three most common reasons you lose your hair are stress, hormone imbalances (particularly testosterone & thyroid hormones and chronic inflammation). When our bodies are under stress or low on calories, protein, or nutrients our hair folicles stay in the resting, rather than growing phases.
Hair may fall out while washing or brushing or even fall out with no encouragement at all. This disorder is called Telogen effluvium and the good news is that you can regrow your hair without drugs. Read below to find out how.

Stress & Hair Loss

Stress, exhaustion, anxiety and depression are a huge component of hair loss. Constantly high cortisol, your body’s stress hormones, causes a drop in hyaluronic acid and proteoglycan synthesis. These two compounds protect your hair follicles and help them grow; when they’re depleted, your hair begins falling out and it doesn’t grow back.

Thyroid Hormones

A thyroid imbalance is a common issue. Your thyroid hormones bind directly to receptors in the base of your hair follicles. Thyroid hormones regulate hair stem cells too, meaning they can start and stop new hair growth.

Hormone Imbalances can cause Hair Loss

Testosterone also drive hair loss. Enzymes in your hair follicles convert testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), and high DHT in your hair follicles cause them to fall out. We recommend using a treatment for the hair bulb, try INSIGHT LOSS CONTROL Fortifying Treatment to help stimulate the microcirculation to fortify the hair fibres, to prevent hair loss.

Postpartum hair loss commonly starts at around three months after birth. The hair loss can seem more extreme if your hair grew much more than normal during pregnancy, or if you have long hair. Most women all return to their usual hair growth cycle within 12 months by eating foods that are high in Vitamin D & Vitamin C and with the help of organic hair products.

Chronic Inflammation can cause Hair Loss

A large percentage of people who seek hair loss treatment have signs of chronic inflammation, and by stopping the inflammation often reverses hair loss.

How to Regrow Hair without drugs

Avoid drugs that can regrow hair, instead you’re better of addressing the underlying cause of hair loss and treat it naturally.

1.) Manage stress, by trying to calm your nervous system. Try simple natural meditation techniques to promote high level health and wellness, get more sleep & exercise.

2.) Balance your thyroid hormones, by easing stress to help hormones stay in balance. Eat well and have a nutritional diet which emphasises healthy fats.

3.) Decrease inflammation with nutrients of colourful rich veggies and avoid sugar and simple carbs.

4.) Prepare the skin for the subsequent treatments with two functions: skin renewal and purifying action. We recommend using INSIGHT REBALANCING Scalp Exfoliating Cream, which aims to clear the scalp from dead cells, residues of technical products and impurities, reactivating the microcirculation and prepares the skin for treatment. If you suspect to have dandruff, we also recommend treating your hair with INSIGHT ANTI DANDRUFF Purifying Treatment, to counteract the dandruff and soothe the scalp irritations to prepare the scalp for further treatments.

5.) Introduce a healthy daily routine, starting with organic hair care products, try INSIGHT LOSS CONTROL Shampoo & Fortifying Treatment packed with organic extracts, including horse chestnut to help strengthen and condition the hair growth, specially formulated for people with weak hair, suffering from hair loss & thinning hair.

How to take Care of your Hair – Summer Hair Care

While Summer is known for being a season of carefree fun in the sun, did you know that it can also be the most damaging season for our hair? Those long days basking in the summer sunlight and taking dips in the pool or the ocean can dry out your hair, leaving it looking limp, lackluster, and lifeless. Keep your hair happy and healthy all Summer long using these natural, chemical-free methods.

1. Cover Up!
The sun is known for its harsh UVA and UVB rays that can do a number on our skin—causing everything from dryness and signs of skin aging to sunburns and skin cancer. But the effects of the sun’s rays don’t end at our epidermis. Fact is sunlight—as warm and inviting as it may seem—can do a number on our hair. To protect your hair from fading and drying out due to the sun you’ll want to keep them protected all season long. Wear a fashionable floppy hat or a stunning silk scarf. The fact is you have to protect your hair the same way you’d protect your skin from the sun if you want it to look its best. A hat reduces damage caused by wind, especially if your hair is prone to tangling, and protects colour-treated hair.

2. Put your hair up in loose, comfortable styles
A messy braid is ideal for keeping your hair under control and minimising exposure to the sun. Tight hairstyles can be damaging because they tend to pull and tear hair, especially if your hair is dry from the summer heat. Overly tight hairstyles—ponytails, braids, buns, and the like—can pull on our strands and cause breakage. During the summer months when our hair is extra fragile from the heat, take care to style your hair into loose knots and braids and steer clear of plastic elastics which can do further damage, opting instead for soft hair ties or bobby pins.

3. Wash less often
Frequent washing strips your scalp of its natural oils, which in turn stimulates additional oil production and makes you feel the need to wash it even more. Sweat and summer go hand-in-hand but washing your hair frequently to get rid of the grease isn’t doing it any favours. Try just rinsing in the shower after a day at the beach or pool, and see if that gets rid of some extra oil. In place of regular shampoo, try INSIGHT Antioxidant Rejuvenating Mask, apply to wet hair, distributing evenly. Leave on 5/10 minutes, rinse thoroughly, this natural product protects the hair from external aggressions.

4. Reduce the heat
Try to blow-dry your hair as little as possible. It is already exposed to a significant amount of heat on a daily basis in the summer, and it will probably air-dry quickly anyways, so give the blow dryer a break and go natural if you can. Avoid flat-irons, too, as they will do further damage to already-dry hair. Save the hot tools for special occasions and embrace your hair’s natural texture on a day-to-day basis. Try a hair oil enriched with Organic Ginkgo and Organic Aloe Extract to discipline frizz without heat for an effortlessly smooth undone style. When your hair is still damp reach for INSIGHT Styling oil NON OIL or liqiud crystals and distribute through your strands, —this will help to keep the frizz at bay! Then either air dry loose or style in a braid for a more controlled texture once your hair has dried.

5. Protect your Hair with Organic hair treatments
There are shampoos that contain UV protection, but most of those are chemical-laden, conventional shampoos that I’d recommend avoiding. One quick way to add some protection to your hair is try using a hair Shampoo & Conditioner that helps protect your hair from mechanical stress, pollution and dyes. Try INSIGHT Rejuvenating Shampoo / Conditioner which contains + Organic Carrot Extract to perform an antioxidant action against the harmful effects of free radicals.
The chlorine in swimming pools and the salt in the ocean are both incredibly drying—and can even strip color-treated hair of its hue. Since our dry hair is very porous and is always seeking moisture, when we dive right in with dry hair, our strands absorb these drying waters. Before taking the plunge, wet your hair with fresh water—or better yet, apply an organic oil spray for added protection. Try INSIGHT Protective Hair Spray on the hair before and during the exposure to sunlight. This product protects the hair from the harmful effects of free radicals thanks to the natural ingredients + Organic Coconut Oil + Hazelnut and jojoba Oils, and shields  your hair against weather conditions, sun rays, chlorine & sea salt.
