Why We Can’t Live Without These 5 Products!!!

Posted by Diane Keck on  September 13, 2019

We all have our “go-to” products that we just absolutely love! We may try many different things but still find ourselves reaching for the tried and true! At Thanx, we have our favorites too and we want to share them with you!

 

1. Eufora AloeTherapy Moisture Mist

We can’t keep this stuff on our shelves!!! AloeTherapy Moisture Mist is a hydrating mist that can be used head to toe! It contains 85% pharmaceutical grade aloe (the same grade of aloe used on burn victims), vitamin C which is a potent anti-oxidant, and water lily which is a natural moisturizer. AloeTherapy Moisture Mist is great for itchy skin, bug bites, sun burn, rashes, skin irritation, a lightweight leave-in for the hair, after pool skin, a refreshing facial mist, skin irritation on pets, skin irritation on babies, psoriasis, eczema, and the list goes on! Store it in the fridge for an extra refreshing experience! Trust us, once you try this, you will ALWAYS have a bottle (or two) on hand!

2. Amika Bust Your Brass

If you are a victim of the dreaded brass, then you NEED the Amika Bust Your Brass line in your life! There are so many purple shampoos out there to combat brass but what makes Bust Your Brass so different is the level of hydration it gives! So many brass combating lines dry the hair out and strip it of much needed natural oils. Amika Bust Your Brass will not! It keeps blondes, greys, silvers, and whites as their brightest and sparkliest best while leaving the hair hydrated and soft. Try the ENTIRE line, you will be hooked!

3.Eufora Nourish Keratin Fortifi Leave-in Treatment

Another product that we can’t seem to keep on our shelves! What is so unique about this spray leave-in treatment is that, while it contains human hair kertain protein, it is NEVER overproteinizes the hair! Too much protein in the hair can make the hair gummy and brittle. Fortifi replaces only the missing keratin in the hair; think of it as a pothole filler for the hair. It provides intense hydration and protection, but is very lightweight! If you have colored hair, this product should definitely be in your daily routine!

4. Amika Plus Size Perfect Body Mousse

The volume and hold that this luxurious mousse gives is the stuff dreams are made of! What’s even better?….it is not sticky or crunchy in the hair at all!! Our guests rave about their love of this product and we have to say that we feel the same! Use this with Amika Bombshell Blowout Spray for the ultimate photo-worthy hair!

5. Eufora Nourish Beautifying Serum

This is Eufora’s number ONE selling product across the board, and with good reason! This is another product that can used in many different ways. Beautifying Serum is a blend of 4 completely natural oils; neem, kukui, argan, and cranberry which are rich in Omega acids, vitamins and minerals! This product gives the most superb amount of moisture, softness, and shine all while being fast absorbing and lightweight! Use it in your hair, use it directly on your skin or mix it in with your moisturizer (including your face…it won’t clog pores!!!), mix it in with your conditioner in the shower for an extra dose of hydration and shine, and so much more! It’s no wonder why it is Eufora’s number 1 selling product!

8 Myths About Hair Growth

Posted by Diane Keck on  September 7, 2019

We have all heard our share of myths about hair growth, but which of these 8 myths are actually true?
Well, we are here to clear these up for you!

1. Hair grows from the ends : FALSE

Your hair does not grow from the ends! It grows out of your scalp, from the roots. That is why you see a line of demarcation a few weeks after you color your hair; your hair is growing!

2. Hair grows exactly 1/2 an inch a month : FALSE

Everyone’s hair grows at varying rates. Some people have hair that grows closer to 3/4 of an inch a month while others have hair that grows 1/4 of an inch a month, and everything in between! While it IS true that the average hair growth per month is about 1/2 an inch, it isn’t exactly that amount for everyone!

3. Getting frequent haircuts will make your hair grow faster : FALSE

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but frequent haircuts will not make your hair grow faster. However, what regular trims DO is keep split ends at bay and keep your hair healthy as you are letting it grow. If you go too long in between haircuts, split ends will travel further up the hair strand, allowing your hair to become weaker and break easier, making it feel as though your hair isn’t growing. When you do finally go for a cut, you’ll have to have a lot more cut off at one time to make it healthy again.

4. Coconut Oil Will Make Your Hair Grow Faster : FALSE

Coconut oil is great for a lot of things, but hair growth is not one of them. As a matter of fact, too much use of oils like this in the hair can actually clog the pores in your scalp which can stunt hair growth. Hair oils are still great for moisture though so when you are using oils in your hair, keep them on the mids and ends of your hair only!

5. Massaging Your Scalp Can Help With Hair Growth : TRUE

Yes, this one is, indeed, true! Regular scalp massage stimulates blood flow to scalp and helps distribute the natural oils of the scalp, which can help promote a healthy scalp and hair growth. It is also incredibly relaxing!!

6. Your Hair Grows Faster In The Summer : TRUE and FALSE

Wait, what? How can this be both true and false? A lot of people notice that their hair does, in fact, grow faster in the summer. That is most likely due to the fact that a lot of people are much more active in the summer, allowing a stronger blood flow to the scalp (just like with scalp massages). If you are not more active in the summer than you are during the rest of the year, then you may not find this to be true for you. Maybe you are most active during the winter months, then you might find you hair grows faster in the winter. So, this one is pretty subjective.

7. Medications Can Affect Hair Growth : TRUE

Medications can have a VERY strong impact on hair growth, and your hair in general. Some medications can cause hair loss, brittle hair, slowed hair growth, and can affect color results. Asking your doctor for information on how medications can affect your hair and letting your stylist know if you are on these medications can be very helpful!

8. Supplements Like Biotin and Prenatal Vitamins Help Promote Hair Growth : TRUE

Biotin is a B vitamin. A biotin deficiency can lead to thinning hair. It is believed that taking biotin can help stimulate hair AND nail growth. Prenatal vitamins are usually high in iron, folic acid, and sometimes biotin as well. All these together are believed to help stimulate and promote healthy hair growth, skin, and nails. Many women opt to take prenatal vitamins even when they aren’t pregnant due to these benefits!

 

 

We hope that we helped clear some of these myths up for you and that you learned something new!
