  • How to: Maintain Curly Extensions

    Posted on by IHH Staff


    There are two main reasons why curly hair becomes fuzzy. Either too much handling (touching, combing, brushing or lack of moisture. Curls are delicate and excessive styling is the fastest way to make them fall apart. Keep touching of the hair to a minimum.If you're pressed for time and need to dry it fast use a blow-dryer with a diffuser attachment. This way your curls won't frizz or flatten.
    There are even proper ways to hydrate your curly locks. The shape of the curls will only form if they're bathed in the right amount of moisture and sealed with the right amount of "product". Use the right leave-in conditioners designed for curls (natural or extensions). Make sure that before you sleep at night you put a silk or satin scarf over your hair because the cotton pillow WILL dry out your hair and destroy your curls.

  • How to: Keep Your Skin Moisturized

    Posted on by IHH Staff


    Do you have dry skin most of the time and have tried several remedies to combat this problem? Here are some tips on how to improve the moisture in your skin.

    Don’t buy a cheap body wash. Good body wash products normally contain essential oils such as: coconut oil, olive oil and jojoba oils that help keep moisture.

    Dry your skin properly. Some people are often in a rush in the morning and don’t dry properly which means your skin will dry out during the day.

    Shea butter and essential oils based cream are ideal. These type of cream bases help keep your skin healthy and moisturized.

    To ensure your skin is smooth and healthy, every week or 2 weeks give your skin a treat. Use body scrub or a body mask occasionally to wash off dirt but keep the moisture. Doing this can help keep your skin moisturized, smooth, and soft.
