How to find your perfect blonde

How to find your perfect blonde

Blonde hair is beautiful. Blonde can be bold, but you need to know how to make it work for you. We’ve seen blunders that could have been avoided if the right measures were taken before the hair colour change. We’re here to make sure you don’t end up looking like a Duracell battery in the name of fashion. Here’s how to find the right blonde hair colour suited for you. Find YOUR blonde First things first. Take a strand test before you colour your entire head. This way, you can see how your hair reacts to the colour. This is also a great way to see how the colour will look on you. Skin tone If you’re darker skinned, consider a caramel blonde. This works exceptionally well for women with a copper skin tone. If your skin is lighter, try a more platinum or sunkissed blonde to accentuate your caramel tone. Hair texture If you’re rocking your natural hair, then you’re pretty much ready to colour. If you’ve permed or relaxed your hair, you may need to put your colour treatment on hold for two weeks. Maintenance is key So now you’re all bold in blonde. Colouring your hair is just the beginning. Maintaining your hair is the next step. Ensure that you condition your hair, regardless of its texture. It needs hydration to stay healthy and beautiful. Lucky for you, every Inecto Colours box comes with an aloe and milk protein conditioner to give you deep moisturising. Another important thing to remember is to use a colour safe shampoo. This will ensure that your beautiful new colour doesn’t...

8 hair looks that keep us crushing on Mmabatho Montsho.

8 hair looks that keep us crushing on Mmabatho Montsho.

Whenever we speak afros, Mmabatho Montsho pops into the conversation. We know her as that ever beautiful woman with stunning natural hair and minimal make-up. She's an African goddess of note. We’ve seen her grow as an actress on Generations, Rhythm City and Jacobs Cross to mention a few. She's taken on the big screen too alongside Khanyi Mbau and Renate Stuurman in the movie, ‘Happiness is a Four-letter Word’. These days she’s more focused on her producer and director talents, notably her short film, ‘The Groom’s Price’. She may be good at keeping a low profile, but her hair is a topic we can't avoid. Year on year we’ve been green with envy because of her full and gorgeous hair. She’s gone from a big afro to TWA and just keeps us guessing. She's been tight-lipped about the secret to her gorgeous coils. Hopefully, one day we'll get the scoop. For now, let's marvel at 8 of the looks we’ve liked the most.Image Source: instagram 1.The majestic froMuch has been said about her signature afro, but we need to take a moment to appreciate how versatile it is. We’ve seen her comb it out to its full glory and tie it into a bun. We've especially loved how she can braid it in natural cornrows, which have an old school glam feel. On Instagram, she’s always the fresh-faced girl with glorious hair.Image Source: quenchsa.com Classic fro. 2. Headwrap and natural hairIf you’re fortunate enough to have a patiently grown afro like hers, you can wear your hair in a head wrap, faux fro or even a different colour.Image...

Hair Tips

Don’t let your hair down this winter, and keep it healthy with these hair care tips. The colder season brings a need to adjust your hair regime. Your hair dries out, just like your skin does. That’s why it’s important to take extra care of it. 1. Shampoo and Condition Establish a regular shampoo and condition ing regime. Now is the time to go for deep conditioning treatments and hair masks. Your hair is being exposed to dryness and dust, so extra attention is required. Shampoo your hair at least and use conditioner every week and use a hair treatment every two weeks. Be careful not to wash your hair more than once a week, so as not to strip your scalp of its natural oils. 2. Moisturise Use a hair food/oil on your hair twice a day and drink of lots of water. You can use Castor, Jojoba or Coconut oils, which can be bought at a local health and beauty shops. By doing this you lock in the moisture for longer. Speaking of oil, if the itch to colour has got you, do it with a shade from the Ultra Gloss range. Each shade is enriched with baobab oil, honey and coconut oil for naturally shiny and healthy-looking hair. 3. Trim your hair With dry weather comes breakage. Be prepared. Split ends are also on the horizon, so don’t let them catch you off guard. Get your hairstylist to trim off your ends every 6-8 weeks, depending on how quickly your hair grows out. 4. Treat your hair If you’re relaxing your hair this winter, be sure...
