What would Julianna Do

While i was invited as a guest on the set of “what would Julianna do” i made a hair and scalp treatment from ingredients that you may have in your fridge

This pre-shampoo treatment hair and scalp pack is applied to wet or dry hair prior to shampooing because the scalp is more responsive to treatment when pores are dilated. This can be used as a repair masque after being exposed to the sun’s harsh rays or during the cold winter when your hair and scalp are lacking moisture.This treatment pack will increase luster and shine, promote healthy hair growth, renew moisture in the scalp, and help prevent split ends.

To remove the treatment from hair, first rinse with warm water, then wash well with shampoo and follow up with a light conditioner. i do Recommend you use Yarok Feed Your Volume , it’s pure and healthy for you!

You’ll need,

1 leaf of the juices of the Aloe plant – moisturizes and has enzymes that promote hair growth

2 tablespoons organic Olive oil – moisture, shine, and body boost

1/2 an organic Avocado – vitamins for hair growth, high fatty acids for strengthening

1 tablespoon dry or fresh organic Rosemary – a tantalizing tingle that promotes scalp circulation and prevents dandruff

1 tablespoon of Apple cider vinegar – for shine, cleansing, and dandruff prevention

half a block of Organic Tofu – proteins to strengthen follicles and nutrients that conditions and adds texture

Combine all the ingredients in a blender (on a low speed) and blend until you have a smooth texture. Apply to scalp in small amounts while massaging in circular movement. Continue throughout hair, making sure the whole head is covered. Cover with a plastic hair cap and apply heat to head using your method of choice. This could be done with hot towels or by holding a blow dryer and heating all around for about 10 minutes. You can also leave it in your hair up to 1 hour if time is not an issue.

I recommend treating your hair and scalp with this pack once a week.

All you need to know about healthy hair growth may be in your refrigerator, and I’ve got the dietary solutions for your head.

Some of my clients have been coming to me for over 20 years. When you work with an individual for this long, you can see the hair go through a transformation. Frequently, my clients approach me with concerns regarding hair growth. And with what we do to our hair (perms of the 80s, relaxers of the 90s…) and bodies over time will affect hair growth in the future. While I do believe there are medical questions that should be addressed when experiencing hair thinning/loss (genes have a lot to do with it) there are also many factors regarding your lifestyle that could be a cause for hair loss. Below you will find a list of vitamins, foods, and ingredients that will help you achieve a healthier and happier you. The keys to great hair (and a healthy body) are in a nutritious diet, exercise, all-natural ingredients, and keeping lots of love and happiness in your life. Only then can we be whole—mind, body and soul.

While a vast majority of male hair loss sufferers are identified as having andogenic alopecia (or male pattern baldness), the causes in women continue to elude doctors. The source of hair loss in women vary case to case and it’s difficult to pinpoint the source. While some women also suffer from androgenic alopecia, others can attribute their thinning hair to extreme stress or traumatic events that cause hair loss like child birth, severe infection, major surgery, menopause, or any other event that may cause general malnutrition. This type of hair loss is referred to as telogen effluvium. This condition is particularly common among new mothers (reportedly 40-50% of women experience post-partum hair thinning). While there are no permanent solutions to hair loss in men or women, there are natural ways to treat and prevent future hair loss through a well-rounded diet and healthy lifestyle choices.

Iron can make a huge different in hair growth. Those with low iron or anemia are likely to experience thinning hair. Be sure to eat foods high in iron. Meat is a common source of iron, but dark leafy greens, dried fruit, and legumes are sources that are just as important.

Protein is crucial to strengthening and promoting a healthy body, and in fact makes up 90% of hair structure. It is one of the key elements to protecting your hair from damage. While it is found in many shampoos/conditioners and hair treatments on the market, you should also be supplementing protein in your diet (as it is so important for overall nutrition). While protein is most commonly derived from meat, there are several options for vegetarians and vegans that can replace meat. Try tempeh, tofu, brown rice, broccoli, lentils, chickpeas, or peanuts.

Several vitamins are vital components to healthy, growing hair. The most common vitamin recommended for hair loss is vitamin H, also known as Biotin. It is actually a part of the B-complex family (also highly recommended for healthy hair, skin, and nails), and is proven to prevent both hair loss and the onset of greys. Biotin can be found in swiss chard, carrots, nuts, many berries and vegetables, and milk. Pantothenic acid, which prevents greying and hair loss, can also be found in many of these foods as well as avocado, yogurt, and both shiitake and crimini mushrooms.YAROK Feed Your Sunshine hair & scalp treatment is packed with B complex vitamins for protecting your hair against sun damage, naturally moisturizing the scalp, and promoting hair growth. It is also contains anti-Oxidants…

Anti-Oxidants (i.e. vitamins C, E, and A) work to flush out toxins in your body and boost immunity, which in-turn promotes clear, beautiful skin and boost hair growth. Vitamin C is commonly found in citrus fruits, berries, tomatoes, green peppers, and dark leafy vegetables. Vitamin E is important for circulation to the scalp (which thus promotes hair growth) and can be found in raw seeds and nuts, dried beans, and leafy green vegetables. While vitamin A—found in sweet potatoes, butternut squash, cantaloupe, and carrots—helps produce healthy oil in the scalp, it can be very harmful as too much can actually lead to hair loss and further complications. You should definitely consult with a doctor or expert to understand how much is too much. YAROK also has several products loaded with anti-Oxidants like Feed Your Shine hair serum which works to give your hair a natural sheen and prevent damage from hot styling tools.

A commonly overlooked supplement, Zinc, aids in reversal in scalp problems. It is abundant in red meat, but also sesame, pumpkin and squash seeds, dark chocolate, and peanuts. Inositol, found in whole grains and citrus fruits, keeps your follicles healthy at the cellular level. Niacin also helps blood circulation to scalp and can be found in bran, fish, paprika, peanuts, and sun-dried tomatoes.

The start to hair and scalp health is a well-balanced, diverse diet. However, all of YAROKs products have been designed to fully supplement your hair’s every need. From shampoos to styling products, every ingredient is all-natural and works to repair, strengthen, and protect your hair and scalp. Vitamins, minerals, essential oils, herbs, fruit extracts—YAROK has it all. Using our products on a regular basis will ensure your hair and scalp are getting all of the elements it needs for maximum health, beauty, and growth (the natural way!).

Keeping your hair healthy during the cold winter

Rituals:

1. First and foremost, drink plenty of water and make sure you stick to a nourishing diet. Your hair and body need vitamins like A, C, E and many variations of B as well as Omega 3 fatty acids (found in fish or flaxseed) to stay healthy and shiny. YAROK FEED YOUR YOUTH Hair & Scalp Serum is also packed with vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, and oils that treat your worn hair and restore it to the fullness and beauty of its youth.

2. Don’t shampoo everyday or even every other day. Most shampoos contain moisture stripping chemicals that can actually damage hair if used too frequently. If your hair is naturally oily, try just shampooing at the roots rather than the entire strand. With that being said, Yarok recommends an all-natural shampoo and conditioner that is completely free of harsh chemicals like YAROK FEED YOUR VOLUME Shampoo and Conditioner.

3. Finish off your warm shower with a cold rinse over your hair. This seals in conditioners and boosts shine.

4. After your bath, do not rub your hair dry. This causes frizz and dryness. Instead, gently pat or squeeze it with a soft towel, like bamboo fiber, so as to not remove critical moisture from the hair’s cuticles.

* For more frizz prevention, use a wide tooth comb that has gentle or coated tips.

5. Avoid styling your hair with tools that require heat like blow dyers, curling and flattening irons. If you must, always apply a heat protector, like YAROK FEED YOUR ENDS Leave-In Conditioner, prior to styling.

6. If you can bear it, turn down the heater during the winter as dry, hot air in your home will translate to your hair and scalp. Purchase a humidifier to insert moisture back into your environment.

7. Use laundry detergents that do not contain perfumes and deodorizers. This is good practice for both hair and skin.

8. Finally, once split ends start they cannot be repaired! Put a stop to split ends by getting regular trims.

Remedies:

1. Water that comes from a faucet contains trace elements like chlorine and other minerals that can damage hair. Consider purchasing a filter for your shower head that converts hard water to soft.

2. Protect your head and hair in the dry winter winds with soft material caps like silk, cashmere, or satin, rather than wool which is rough on your sensitive hair (you can even wear a silk wrap underneath a wool hat if you need the layers). Consider this detail in terms of your pillow cases and bed sheets as well.

3. Flyaways are a common winter hair nuissance. One quick trick is to rub a fabric softening dryer sheet on your hair to remove static and frizz. An even more effective solution would be to use a product like the YAROK FEED YOUR SHINE Hair Serum which adds shine and tames those flyaways.

4. If your hair is lacking moisture, there are several items you’ll probably find in your own kitchen that can replenish dry hair.

*For example, mixtures of oil and vinegar is great for your hair. Apple Cider vinegar in particular is known to cleanse, condition, add body and luster, balance the pH of scalp, and even reduce itch and dandruff.

*It’s no secret that your hair needs certain oils. Olive or avocado oils are great for overall hair health and shine. YAROK FEED YOUR ROOTS Mousse contains both oils along with many other all- natural ingredients that give your hair the lift it needs to look voluminous.

5. Aromatherapies can be relaxing for both your senses and hair. Essential oils like lavender, bay and sandalwood mixed with a sesame or soy oil can leave your hair looking and smelling fabulous. You’ll be soothed and relaxed by your own hair all day!”

Restore Shine

Home RecipeOur sense of smell is so powerful because it connects our minds with very  powerful memories.  For me, even a whiff of orange brings back the memory of blooming orange trees in Israel where I was raised.  This recipe uses ingredients you can find at your natural grocer or at Aura Cacia,   and it will restore shine to your stressed out tresses.
  • Mix together:
    • 12 drops of Sweet Orange blossom essential oil
    • 1oz. Avocado oil (or Olive oil, or sesame oil)
  • Before shampooing massage the treatment into your hair and scalp
  • Leave it on for 10 minutes. Even better if you can leave it on in an environment like a steam room at your gym or in your steamy bathroom at home
  • Wash with YAROK Feed Your Volume shampoo and conditioner and then finish and style.
