Hair care gifts that make the perfect present

Published November 15, 2016 by minxie68

Looking for the perfect gift? Not sure what to buy the friend that already has everything? Why not buy them hair care gifts? Most of us might not have thought about giving someone hair products as a gift, but our hair often needs that little bit of extra care, especially in the winter. The gift could be cool handmade natural hair products which you could arrange in a small basket or a few high-end products from a salon. If you know what sort of hair type your friend has, then you could always look at products especially for him/her. Hair care gifts are often really appreciated as the person you’re buying them for might not even have thought to buy these products for themselves. If you’re unsure about buying products as a gift, you could always book him/her in for a treatment at your local salon. The good thing about giving these sort of gifts is that you actually have a lot of options. Happy, relaxed gift giving!

Beer for Hair

It may sound strange using beer for hair products. Most beer lovers would rather drink a tall, cold one than waste it by pouring it on their hair. Surprisingly though, there are an increasing number of beer based grooming products on the market today claiming to make hair shinier, fuller, thicker and more luxurious. But do they really work or are they just a fun, novelty item?

It turns out that there are scientific studies behind the claims. It is proven that the hops, barley and yeast found in beer contain protein and B vitamins that add fullness and shine to hair. They also create a barrier that locks in moisture making hair softer and thicker. Most of the beer based products on the market are currently targeted towards men. And they aren’t just for hair; there is everything from shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotions to beard balm and shaving cream. The benefits of beer for hair have not escaped the female beauty world either. For years, women have made their own beer shampoo or hair masks at home. Directions are easy to find online and users rave about the impressive results. Although the commercial beer grooming products are harder to find for women, there are beer based shampoos, conditioners, face masks, lip balms and moisturizers available.

While the male products are generally scented with sandalwood or pine, the feminine products are made with scents like honey, coconut and apricot. With results that actually deliver, beer based beauty products are likely to become easier to find and a wider range of products available for both genders as they grow in use and popularity.

When it comes to personal grooming, women will never leave anything to chance. Hair is a vital component in their general appearance and this explains why women take matters relating to their hair very seriously. There are two major categories of hair products, namely, synthetic and organic. Synthetic products are made from chemical materials, while organic beauty hair products are made of natural ingredients. There are several benefits of organic over synthetic products in hair care. Environmental friendliness: Unlike synthetic products, which are made of harmful chemicals such as formaldehyde that are non-biodegradable, organic products have a very low or zero negative impact on the environment. Long-term merits: Synthetic products have been known to cause hair breakage, cancer and dryness after prolonged use. This is not the case with organic hair products, which actually boost the health of your hair. When buying organic products, it is recommended that you study the ingredients carefully. Some manufacturers lace their products with chemicals, but only highlight one organic ingredient during marketing. Also, avoid buying organic products that have ingredients that you are allergic to. In closing, organic beauty hair products might seem expensive, but this is only because they are reliable in achieving strong, healthy and shining hair.</p>
