Self-Care Tips for Your Beauty Routine

Self-Care products

We are strong believers in creating a beauty routine and ensuring self-care is a priority. It can be a challenge at the moment, so having some normality, such as a beauty regime morning and night, can help you maintain a degree of normal during this time. Just getting away for a few minutes and devoting to some “me-time” can make life far more manageable.  Your health & wellness matter, so put yourself on your own “priority” list. 

During these times of uncertainty and isolation, it’s important that we all look after ourselves. You may be dreading the thought of not being able to get into the salon regularly, but we can help you maintain your hair at home with safe & organic products to reduce the chemical overload on your body. Enhance your well-being naturally through organic beauty and lifestyle products that make you look good and actually work.

⁣When it comes to picking the right INSIGHT hair care, you will find there are different formulations not just for hair type, but also for the different hair concerns. As such, you can find a Shampoo & Conditioner according to the level of damage or type of hair concern. INSIGHT has an extensive range of Shampoo / Conditioner formulations to match your hair care needs, to help you create your own daily ritual of healthy living for self-care.

FRIZZY HAIR Concerns?

If you suffer from frizzy hair, you may notice that it gets a lot worse in humidity or rainy weather. The main cause of frizz is dehydration of the hair strands. If your hair is dried out, it absorbs more moisture from the atmosphere, which causes more frizz. Your hair loses moisture as the day goes on, so whilst your hair looks fab in the morning, you may notice deterioration as the day goes on and your cuticle opens up. Our INSIGHT ANTI-FRIZZ range is perfect for anyone that is struggling with frizzy hair. Our special mix of Organic Linseed Extract + Cocoa Butter + Cotton Oil +Hemp Oil all work together to calm the frizz and reduce hair breakage. It’s formulation works to give high moisturising properties and helps detangle the hair and gain more silkiness and shine.

DAMAGED HAIR Concerns?

Is breakage one of your main hair concerns? If your hair looks dry and snaps very easily, it is likely it is damaged. Our INSIGHT DAMAGED HAIR range is perfect for anyone that is struggling with damaged hair. Our special mix of Organic Wheat Germ + Olive Butter + Argan Oil + Rice Bran Oil + Bamboo + Sea Kelp extract is designed to Restructure & Moisturise brittle hair to repair the hair back to luscious & healthy.⁣

WASHING HAIR EVERYDAY Concerns?

There’s a chance you could be washing your hair too often, especially if you’re shampooing it on a daily basis. And, yes, it may be tempting to shampoo and condition each morning, especially if your hair easily becomes greasy, but doing so can cause many issues — including stripping your scalp of may essential oils. There isn’t an exact number of times you should wash your hair a week, and this depends on your hair texture, your natural-oil production, etc. But we have the solution! Seek for mild organic shampoos that are formulated specially for your hair type. INSIGHT DAILY USE  nourishes the hair fibre without weighing it down!

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.
