The Hairstyle Your Man Really Wants to See

The Hairstyle Your Man Really Wants to See 1000 667 Naomi Soman

If you’re like most of us, you’ll want to make sure your date night look is absolutely flawless. After all, you want to make sure you catch Cupid’s eye. 

Most girls assume that the best hairstyles are the ones they see in ElleCosmopolitan, and on the runways of Paris fashion week.  

However, as it turns out, men have a different perspective. While women might say avant garde, their significant others might respond with a simple “no thank you.” 

We found out what hairstyles real men liked on women, and we came up with the top three for you (and a couple of the worst!) 

Looks They Love: 

1. Classic & Curled- 

 

You can’t go wrong with an old Hollywood hairstyle. Give yourself a deep side part, some volume on top, and big curls—while a hot iron might get the trick done quickly, a set of rollers will get you those huge rolling curls.  

This classic ‘do always looks elegant, feminine, and sophisticated. Add a pair of bright red lips and a little black dress and you’re ready to go. 

2. Colors- 

 

Believe it or not, men love a splash of color. Whether it was a sleek lavender or a subtle ombre, a bit of color showed the woman had a personality. Men liked to see that a woman had her own unique sense of style. 

3. Texture- 

 

Throw in a bit of sea-salt spray for some texture and let your natural waves free. There’s nothing more attractive than a woman who’s confident enough to let her true self shine through.  

Looks to Avoid: 

1. Tight & Messy Buns- 

While a tight bun might look great with your blazer, it won’t go over as well with your date. Men tend to find buns business-like and stuffy even when they’re well done, especially if your hair is pulled back so tightly from your face it looks like it’s stretching your skin. 

You’ll want to keep the messy bun for the beach. Those wispy strands might look romantic on the sea shore, but on a fancy night out, it looks like you just threw yourself together. Valentine’s Day is a chance for you to flaunt those locks, not tie them away. 

 2. Hair Extensions- 

 

Hair extensions can give you that gorgeous, luscious mane you thought only existed in Pantene commercials. However, as it turns out, men hate these fake clip-ins. They love running their fingers through your hair. He’ll stop short when he feels odd bumps at the base of your head. 

 3. Loose Ponytails- 

 

There’s nothing that says “I don’t care” to a man like a ponytail. No matter how bad of a hair day you’re having, ponytails are never the answer. Yes, you might have added a bit of poof or a clever heart-shaped braid design, but he’s not going to notice. Just save them for the gym! 

Whatever hairstyle you choose, make sure you pop open a Remilia hair capsule when you’re in the shower so that your locks come out silky smooth for your big night out. 

After all, there’s NOTHING sexier than shinyhealthy hair. 

 

 

 

 

Beat the Dandruff This Winter With These Little-Known Tricks

Beat the Dandruff This Winter With These Little-Known Tricks 1000 667 Naomi Soman

The snowflakes that fall on your nose and eyelashes are not the same flakes that nestle in your locks and land on your shoulders. 

When the temperature starts to drop in October and November, the level of moisture in the air starts to fall too. If you struggle with chapped lips and dry, cracked knuckles, you can bet your scalp is pretty thirsty too.  

Here are some of our favorite ways to fight winter-weather dandruff. 

1. Choose the Right Shampoo: 

 

There are plenty of shampoos besides Head & Shoulders designed specifically to fight dandruff. Make sure to scan the bottle for these ingredients: 

  • Zinc pyrithione 
  • Coal tar
  • Selenium sulfide 
  • Salicylic acid 
  • Ketoconazole  

2. Tea Tree Oil & Aloe Vera: 

 

Tea tree oil comes from tea tree leaves. Aborigines used oil from this Australian tree to clean wounds in the hopes of preventing infection. Today, tea tree oil is used in soaps and shampoos because of its antimicrobial properties. However, you can also use a few drops of the oil itself on your scalp to ward away dandruff. 

You probably use aloe vera on your sun burns, but you may not have known it can be used for a dry scalp. Aloe vera actually helps to fight inflammation naturally. Massage a bit of aloe vera into your scalp and let it sit for 30 minutes before washing it out well. 

3. Turn Down the Heat: 

When the weather outside is frightful, there’s nothing more inviting than a warm, toasty night in the living room.  

Instead of cranking the heat though, try grabbing a blanket or sweater. The heat coming out of the vents can dry out your scalp. Better yet, get a fireplace going! 

4. Eat Right: 

Believe it or not, your dandruff might actually be linked to your diet. While there may be other factors at play as well, don’t ever underestimate the role of nutrition in hair health. 

B Vitamins: 

Riboflavin (vitamin B2), Niacin (vitamin B3), and Biotin (vitamin B7) are all essential to healthy hair growth. Riboflavin helps convert macronutrients into ATP (otherwise known as energy), Niacin aids in skin health, and Biotin supports healthy hair growth.  

Make sure you’re getting a healthy dose of vitamin B on your plate if you’re constantly itching and scratching. 

Omega-3 Fatty Acids: 

Omega-3 fatty acids help to fight inflammation and soothe skin. You should make sure you’re getting some flax seeds, walnuts, and eggs in your diet on a regular basis so you get enough of this hair-healthy nutrient. 

Zinc:  

Zinc is responsible for metabolism, cell growth, and immune function, and deficiency often results in dandruff.  

The recommended daily dosage of zinc is 8-9mg for women and 11mg for men. Make sure you’re stocking up on chickpeas, peanuts, almonds, cashews, poultry and meat to make sure you’re getting enough zinc.

 5. Keep Stress at Bay: 

 

Dandruff is technically caused by a microbe called Malassezia globosa. Stress inhibits your body’s immune system leaving these microbes free to grow and reproduce on your scalp. Stress can also influence your hormone levels, which, in turn, might cause dandruff. 

It can be tempting to stay huddled inside this winter, but when stress hits, and it will, you’ll want to make sure you’re strapping up your sneakers regularly. There’s no better stress-buster than a good sweat session, and the blood circulation will bring more oxygen and nutrients to the skin on your head.  

Of course, you’ll want to make sure you hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Don’t hesitate to pop open an extra Remilia hair capsule to get some more moisture into your daily hair care routine. Since these capsules are completely plant-based, they won’t strip your locks of their natural oils.  

Typically, you should be applying the serum from your roots to your ends because these sections are the driest. However, there’s nothing that says you can’t apply the serum to your scalp too!
