How To Make Aloe Vera Gel Healthy Hair Beauty Tip

Scalp Health ~

It is a known fact that healthy hair is an extension of a healthy scalp.

Aloe Vera is a plant that has a natural substance that is potent with anti-fungal qualities. By applying the natural gel on your scalp, this is a good way of reducing the amount of yeast on your scalp, therefore decreasing dry scalp issues.

Alternatively, you can buy Aloe Vera juice which you can drink to supplement your normal diet. The juice contains many of the vitamins that you need in order to combat dandruff and/or dry scalp effectively, including vitamins A, B1, B6, B12 and vitamin E as well as folic acid.

Aloe Vera juice also contains 12 natural substances that have been shown to inhibit inflammatory conditions, and it helps to produce healthy skin as it provides a rich supply of collagen and elastin which helps to repair and regenerate a healthy scalp.

Soothing Your Scalp

Add 1/2 cup of Aloe Vera juice/gel to a squeeze bottle and a drop or two of your favorite fragrance oil (optional), shake well. Part your hair to expose your scalp and squeeze Aloe Vera directly on your scalp; massage gently in a circular motion, being careful not to be rough. Cover your hair with a plastic cap and leave on about 20mins. to an hour. Rinse well with lukewarm water. Let hair drip dry. Repeat once a week just before shampooing hair.

I like this book because it covers multiple ways of dealing with dandruff which is good because there are so many reasons a person could have it. I have known that dandruff is a sign that something is wrong with a persons internal health. But this book goes way deeper into the subject. It contains so much useful information. I would say if you suffer from dandruff you really need to read this. It is an embarrassing subject so it is nice to find a book that has so much knowledge and details about it. Much better to read this than discuss the issue!

What's the Difference Between a Full Lace Wig Cap U-Part and Front Lace Wig Cap

What's the Difference Between a Full Lace Wig Cap  U-Part and Front Lace Wig Cap

Have you ever wondered what the differences are in the various lace wig caps and why one costs more than the other? Well, take a look at the differences in the construction of the caps.

u-part lace cap

Differences

Most human hair wigs are custom made with a lace wig cap. Some synthetic wigs are also made with a lace wig cap. Usually, these are your higher end synthetic wigs. (Take a look at this human hair wigs collection)

Lace wig caps are usually made of a soft stretchy Swiss or French lace. Swiss lace is a finer more fragile lace. Swiss lace is the most preferred lace because it is not as visible against the scalp/skin as the thicker French lace. It is lightweight and feels comfortable on your head and against your scalp (for those with no hair).

French lace is a thicker lace and a little more durable than the finer Swiss lace- which makes it great for first-time wearers. But, if you are careful, even if you are a first-time buyer, you should be able to get away with handling a Swiss lace wig. However, because of its slightly thicker texture, french lace might reveal its true colors. Depending on the style of your wig, the lace might slightly show through.

As for the U-Part wig cap, it uses basically the same materials as the full and lace front wigs, however, the parting is different. You can take a section of your own hair from under the wig cap and blend it with the wig hairs to give you a more natural look.

What's Your Color

The great thing about the wig caps is, you can have it dyed to the color you prefer. The most popular colors among Black women are medium brown and dark brown. For the lighter skin tone, a lighter brown or transparent color is used.

Construction

From the examples provided, you can see how the wig caps are constructed. The full lace wig cap has lots of space to part your wig in any direction. The lace can go back as far as to the crown of your head,  giving you more styling options. The lace front wig cap reaches back about 2-4 inches and is not as versatile as the full lace cap, however, you can still work with this type of cap. And for the U-Part wig cap, you have the most styling options, especially if you have enough hair to complement your wig by blending your own hair with the wig hair.

The process of making a wig is very tedious and time-consuming.  It takes a true professional to hand tie each little hair to the mesh, plus constructing the wig in such a manner that it looks flattering, plus making it last a long time.

The Cost Difference

The difference in cost that a full lace cap, lace front cap, and a U-Part lace cap wig can be, varies depending on, of course, the type of hair used and the length of the wig. On average, though, a Full Lace Cap wig normally costs more. Sometimes, the cost can be as high as 10%-20% more.

It goes to show that when you purchase a Full Lace Human Hair wig, you are making an investment. Not only in the wig piece, but in yourself as well.

Now I Know

Having a little more knowledge as to what goes into making a "head covering" (wig), helps me to appreciate the 'investment' that I spend on a nicely constructed wig that fits well, feels comfortable, is beautiful and that helps to build my confidence and that makes me feel beautiful. What about you?
