One such popular fad is hair coloring which is getting highly in-demand with each passing day due to the various brands coming up with better quality, better choices of colors and competitive prices. Though there may be countless choices in the hair color range, but you need to identify which one will look just perfect on you and will compliment well with your skin tone. It really makes a huge difference. Hence identifying what hair color compliments your skin tone best is the most challenging task when it comes to getting your hair colored. Moreover it is quite confusing as well as you are not an expert in color theory so how would you know which are the most flattering shades for you.

Every woman dreams of having lustrous locks that add to her beauty. Of course, hair is the essence of beauty for every woman. But keeping in mind the unhealthy eating habits and hectic lifestyle that is highly stressful, having a head full of heavy and healthy hair is literally a dream. It is often said that what we eat is visible on our skin and hair, however in today’s world, it is not just the food we eat, it is all about a lot of beauty products and cosmetic treatments that help you make stand out from the crowd. Hair being the most visible part of the body, every woman wants it to be shiny, healthy, long and heavy which makes it quite appealing and enhances her self-confidence. This is when hair extensions help greatly and changes your dream to reality. Among the several benefits of hair extensions, the most obvious one is that your natural hair looks long and voluminous thus adding to its attractiveness.
There are different types of hair extensions and the most popular one is Keratin bonded hair extensions.
Keratin bonded hair extensions are attached to your hair through keratin bonds. The tip of the extension is fused with the natural hair using hot tool. This is an extremely popular hair extension treatment that most women prefer these days. However, post treatment, you hair requires high maintenance for it to last long and prevent any kind of damage to your natural hair. Keratin bonded hair extension is not recommended for women who are suffering from weak or damaged hair as this treatment can pull out your natural hair.
Keratin bonded hair extensions must be done in a trustworthy beauty salon where the professionals are highly trained for this job. This type of hair treatment requires intense training and experience for perfect results. Some possible side effects that you might notice after keratin bonded hair extensions is hair fall. You must address this issue it immediately as these are the early signs of damage. Eventually, it could result in damage of the hair follicles and irreversible hair loss. Most of the times, if the hair extensions are heavy or attached very tightly, they exert pressure on your natural hair, thus causing the hair follicles to get weaker and you experience a lot of hair fall. Thus take professional help the moment you notice hair fall. To reduce the hair damage, your beauty professional will recommend you some tips that will help you greatly. They might recommend you to avoid applying conditioners or oil as the bonds might get weak and extensions may slip off, however, you can condition along the lengths. Moreover, avoid using heated appliances like dryer or hair iron near the bond as it might weaken it. But if you are conditioning or blow drying, make sure it is done only on the lengths. First start blow-drying the lengths and then bend your head forward to dry your natural hair. Do not apply heat on the bonds. You can definitely avoid damage to your hair with regular visits to your salon for proper maintenance of the bonds.

We all know the health benefits of going organic, be it food or the products we use. Today, people are experiencing very severe health problems due to the chemicals used in almost everything. The vegetables, pulses and fruits we eat are all treated with heavy pesticides and insecticides that have ruined our health.
Moreover, the beauty products we use are also full of chemicals that are harmful for our skin and hair too. Initially, we cannot notice the side-effects of such chemical products but as time passes by we see irreversible damage it causes to our body. Thus, going organic is the only best option left if we really wish to live a healthy and beautiful life.

It doesn’t matter if you are young or old, teen or an adult, everyone loves to experiment latest hair coloring products to look gorgeous. The main problem with hair coloring is the amount of chemicals that go into its making. Chemicals cause a lot of allergic reactions and may prove really dangerous if ignored. Chemicals cause immense damage to hair follicles thus making them weak and your hair becomes brittle and breaks quickly. Hair starts thinning too and eventually leads to pre-mature balding. Thus it is strongly recommended to opt for an organic hair salon.
At an organic hair salon they use high grade organic products for your hair which are free of harsh chemicals. They offer good strength to your natural hair and has normal pH balance giving you a more natural look and feel to your hair. Organic products are safe and purely made from natural ingredients that never damage the quality of your hair, in fact they make your hair healthier and manageable too. Organic hair colors do not contain preservatives, ammonia and paraben and are generally handmade and produced in small amounts using vegetarian products. Thus it is safe for your skin too as most hair colors come in contact with your skin while application.
Since the professional beauticians use organic hair color products at the organic hair salons there is no pungent odor while application process. These hazardous fumes are released when chemical hair color products are used. Hence people having respiratory problems like asthma or bronchitis can easily get their hair color done comfortably at the right salon. You can breathe easier!

These days, everyone is very busy due to their hectic schedules and at the same time everyone wants to look perfect. Even with the perfect dress, the right footwear and matching accessories, you need to wear light makeup to boost your confidence and look up to the mark. However, makeup is incomplete without beautiful, thick and curled eye lashes. There are many women who have thin eyelashes and are not satisfied even after applying mascaras.
Thus, women who dream of having long and thick eyelashes can think about lash extensions that can satisfy their desire for pretty eyelashes. A lot of women are really worried about lash extension as some have experienced bad results. But whether eyelash extensions damage the eye lashes depends on several factors like who does it, the quality of the product, how does your skin react to it etc.
When it is about your eyes, you definitely want to be very careful. Though, there are several DIY kits available on the market, you need to be alert as there are a few risks involved if you are trying it yourself, like pulling the lashes, improper alignment of lashes, improper application of extensions, glue entering your eyes, eye irritation etc. Moreover, you need to remember that you do not have to rub your eyes while you have lash extensions because it can ruin your natural lashes too. There is a certain limit to the length and thickness for lash extensions. This ensures that your natural lashes are not harmed in any way and remain healthy too. Women with shorter and thinner natural lashes won’t look good with very long, thick and curled eye lashes. Hence, if it your first time and you are unsure about the end results, it is better to add half set and then increase as it suits you. It is tougher to remove the lashes that are already added.
These problems can be avoided by choosing a good professional hair salon where a professional beauty technician is well trained for the lash extension job and can explain you the do’s and don’ts in details. Everyone is unique and so are their lashes. Some have thick, some have scanty, some have curled while other have straight. So depending on the type of natural lashes you have, the expert will work accordingly. Since high quality products are used at professional beauty salons, many of the problems can be avoided. The qualified beauticians will work very carefully so the glue doesn’t even touch your skin. So there is no fear of allergic reaction or eye irritation too. Moreover, the professionals know the difference between an infection and allergic reaction. A licensed beautician will not allow the infection to occur but if the glue doesn’t suit your skin, then the allergic reaction will occur, but that doesn’t imply that the glue is dangerous!
Most people also fear that due to the weight of lash extensions, the natural lashes may shed off. The hair follicles of natural lashes cannot bear the weight of lash extensions and may eventually fall off. However, with expert technicians and professional products used for lash extension, this problem is ruled out too.

Hair forms the most essential aspect of beauty. Be it a female or male, hair enhances a person’s personality, boosts confidence and improves the overall appearance. Eating healthy nutritious food and maintaining proper hygiene improves the density, quality, strength and growth of hair. At the same time, it is essential to take proper care of hair so that you do not come across common issues related to hair like dryness, hair fall, dandruff, split ends, thinning, breakage, premature graying etc. Here are a few hair care tips that will help you maintain healthy, shinny, smooth and strong hair this summer.
Proper and regular hair wash
Washing hair with mild and good quality shampoo is often recommended. It helps to keep your scalp and hair clean, thereby avoiding most hair problems effectively. It is also necessary to wash your hair regularly, but not very frequently as there is depletion of natural oils with frequent wash thus leaving your hair dull and dry. However, it is a good idea to keep your scalp clean by washing it twice a week.
Use chemical free shampoo
Use high quality shampoos that do not contain harmful chemicals like sulfur or paraben. Sulfates are added for lather while parabens are added for preserving that causes irritation in eyes and skin. Thus, stay away from shampoos that contain these chemicals.
Proper conditioner after hair wash
It is very necessary to condition your hair after every hair wash as the hard water these days often damage the natural hair protein. Moreover, the hair that are color treated or that are chemically treated need extra moisturizing and need to be hydrated. Thus, deep conditioning is the best way to protect your color treated or chemical treated hair.
Your hair needs moisturizer just like your skin, so it is necessary to oil your hair regularly so that it remains strong and shines with health. Massaging your scalp with warm oil at least twice a week strengthens the roots and provides desired moisture to your hair roots thus improving its quality and thickness. Coconut oil, castor oil, almond oil, olive oil and essential oil mixed in proper proportions can be applied for better results. Just apply a few hours before hair wash and see the effects.
Avoid chemical treatments and hair colors
As much as possible stay away from hair treatments like smoothening and straightening or re-bonding as these treatments break the natural bonds of your hair which makes your hair weak, dry and brittle. Although these treatments give a beautiful look at first, but later it will surely damage your hair. Use hair colors that are ammonia free and only if necessary. Branded products do not contain high amount of ammonia, hence highly recommended.
Care after hair wash
If possible dry your hair naturally under the sun or simply towel dry. Avoid using dryers and other equipment that gives out heat to dry your hair. Never brush your hair while still wet. Use a wide tooth comb to detangle your hair, brushing will add to brittleness and further create split ends.
If you do all the above and are looking, you might still be looking for a great, organic hair salon in Albany, consider scheduling an appointment with Purity Hair Design.
We all hear it ALL the time. The pregnant woman has the infamous "glow." Why, you might ask, to this seem to take place? The answer is simple: during pregnancy there is an amazingly high surge of hormones that our now coursing through her body, helping her adjust to having to care for her needs but also those of her expected child. The hormones help her skin look clear and perfect. Surprisingly, her hair grows at an accelerated rate and her nails get much thicker, shinier and stronger. So, when all this rapid change is taking place, the question that begs an honest answer: is it safe to color my hair while I am pregnant?
With our combined decades of experience with hair coloring and pregnant clients, we can definitely speak to this question and hopefully, provide some clarity.
To start with, you always have to look at the ingredients in the hair coloring that you are planning to use. You have to identify if there are chemicals in the hair coloring that will harm your baby. We know for certain that there are many hair care products on the market that are harmful and you should avoid them. At Purity Hair Design, we only use safe, organic products that will not cause harm to you or your family. We only carry premier products by Aveda and Neuma.
If you are concerned about coloring, it is safe to use ammonia free color. We would recommend talking with your physician to be certain what he or she recommends. At the end of the day it is a personal decision but, if you can wait to color your hair until after you deliver, we would advise it.
Regardless of which direction you decide, we always recommend discussing your final hair appointment before the actual birth of your baby. We want your routine appointment to be timed right so we can get you looking your best when the time comes to deliver.
So, in a nutshell, we recommend holding off if you can but if you want to try an organic hair coloring product, we do have options you can consider. If you are looking for an organic hair salon in Albany that can help you in your selection and style, please consider Purity Hair Design.
We get so many questions about different hair styles, trends, and, especially, about hair coloring.
So, we thought we would share a few of the most popular questions we get from our clients when it comes to coloring your hair.
Should I Color my hair myself?
At some point, every lady is going to feel a bit bored with their natural hair color. Depending on the season, you might want to go lighter or darker, likely only a shade or two. Perhaps even add some face-framing highlights or, if you are bit older, or are just lucky enough as a younger lady in your late-20’s, work to cover up some of the sneaky gray hair trying to find a way out.
Of course you can take this project on yourself. Many ladies do, and, unfortunately, a tad unsuccessfully. We are typically the next phone call when the coloring doesn’t blend as planned or if the color does not appear as they expected it to. We recommend leaving all hair coloring work to a professional, especially one that is designated as a premier Aveda hair salon.
That being said, there are always situations where DIY people can get away with coloring their own hair: if you are going for a single process color and nothing overly dramatic. If you only want to change by a shade darker or lighter, if you are less than 50% gray and want to cover it up are great examples of those rare instances you can get away with doing it yourself.
Now, highlights should be left to a professional, especially if you are doing full-head highlights. At the end of the day, doing your own hair coloring is a choice you have to make. If you feel confidence in your abilities and can follow the instructions provide, give it a go. Otherwise, if you are concerned and do not feel you are capable, obviously, schedule an appointment with a professional hair salon.
Another question we get often is if a client should get highlights or all-over color. It’s a really great question. Each individual must be treated special and unique. You could easily brighten up your face if you were to add what we call face-framing highlights.
Now, an all-over color look is ideal for women that want to go a few shades lighter or if they are looking to cover up the spread of gray hair. If you look, you could mix it up and do a little bit of both. Just do NOT attempt this at home, this is a special technique best left to a professional.
Choices. It’s what makes doing your hair so much fun. We recommend if you are looking for a new hair salon in Albany to consider choosing the premier Aveda salon we are proud to be. Purity Hair Design is committed to providing outstanding service and deliver results that will have your girlfriends jealous.
