Straight, smooth hair is one of the most popular hair styles among celebrities and laywomen alike. Yet it’s not always easy to transform frizzy, curly locks into arrow-straight tresses. Below, we’ve gathered techniques for achieving the perfectly straight, healthy hair you desire.
Long before Oscar Blandi and Frederic Fekkai started selling their fabulous straightening products, many women yearned for smooth, straight hair. Today, you can still use natural techniques to achieve straight hair.
Nourishing milk straightening treatment. Milk helps straighten hair and combat frizz. Begin with a shampoo; leave hair slightly damp. Comb 1/3 cup milk through damp tresses. Once the milk has coated every hair shaft, massage the scalp for a few minutes. Next, let the milk soak in for about twenty minutes. Finally, shampoo, condition and style as you wish. If your hair is color damaged, use a restorative conditioner such as Russian Amber Imperial Conditioning Crème by Philip B.
The milk bath method works best for those with a slight wave. However, women with curly hair can still benefit from milk treatments, since milk provides hydration and definition for curls. Or you could take the modern shortcut and use Frederic Fekkai’s Ironless Silky Straight shampoo and conditioner. This will achieve even better results with far less work.
Orange peel, lipedema, cellulite, cottage cheese – whatever you call it, one thing’s certain: No woman on the planet longs for more cellulite. It may surprise you to learn that the term “cellulite” is not medically inspired. It gained popularity in French salons around the end of the nineteenth century, and it describes the bumpy, dimpled, inconsistent appearance of the skin above fat deposits.
Doctors say cellulite is actually quite natural – they say this uneven skin surface is found in 90 percent of post-pubescent females and that it simply indicates a breakdown in the connective tissue around fat cells. Cellulite is more noticeable on the female form because female skin tissue is thinner than male skin tissue. Still, it’s hard to convince women to simply accept their cellulite as a natural occurrence. Society has long derided “cottage cheese ” skin as ugly and undesirable.
Fortunately, those who wish to banish cellulite may do so by applying the techniques listed below.
Cellulite is exacerbated when one’s fat cells are swollen with extra sugar. Salt is also problematic because it encourages fluid retention, making cellulite look even worse. To limit the appearance of cellulite, eat no more than six teaspoons of sugar and 200 mg of sodium each day.
To see a noticeable reduction of cellulite, apply a firming lotion or cream. Of course, you’ll want to select a product that’s user-approved to firm skin and improve its structure. Nuxe Paris has created a lotion that fits the bill perfectly. Its Body Fondant Firming Cream includes barley sugars and Brazilian mimosa to instantly lift skin, thereby decreasing cellulite dimples. Nuxe Paris’ cellulite solution also contains rye flakes and Kigelia Africana to improve skin structure. After using this product for 28 days, 86 percent of users reported that their skin was more toned, while 82 percent said it was visibly smoother.
To prepare your skin for cellulite solutions from Nuxe Paris and other brands, apply a body exfoliator such as Fat Girl Scrub from Bliss. The Bliss Fat Girl Scrub increases circulation and is specially formulated for cellulite-prone areas.
Muscle is smoother than fat. If you lift weights regularly, your cellulite levels will drop. Lunges, leg presses and squats are particularly powerful cellulite-busting exercises.
