4 Pro Tips For Healthy Holiday Hair

Though the holiday season is a wonderful time of year packed with parties, gatherings and festivities, all the celebrating can take a toll on us and our hair. All the blow drying, curling, hot ironing, teasing, pinning, spraying, and combing puts hair through the ringer. So as you spread the love around this season, show a little to your tresses, as well, with a little extra attention.

All the heat and handling your hair is experiencing, in addition to the natural dryness that accompanies winter – drier, crisper air outdoors and heated air indoors – calls for adding more moisture and protection to your hair care routine. We see the need readily on our cracked hands and fingernail cuticles, and as a result may apply hand cream several times a day. Hair strands also have a cuticle, and a similar need for extra hydration during stressful times. Here are a few tips for keeping your hair healthy and shiny from party to party.

Shampoo and condition…

with high quality moisturizing products and resist the urge to over-cleanse. Try to shampoo no more than twice a week, and focus your shampooing on the scalp not the ends. Use your conditioner as a cleanser for the ends, especially with long hair, leave the conditioner on longer than you normally do (again, mainly on the ends), and rinse thoroughly. Caretrico’s Moist Sleek Shampoo and Treatment are rich in emollients and nutrients for your locks.

Here’s an extra pro-tip:

Negative-ion water, such as Vine Care Water, is more absorbent than regular water due to its negative charge, which boosts the effectiveness of conditioners and treatments when they’re used together by helping the treatments penetrate deeper. This wonder water also tames frizz and has a volumizing effect on fine hair. For best results, spray Care Water on damp hair prior to applying leave in-conditioners or styling products.

Use a leave-in conditioner

This time of year is when you should be regularly using a leave-in conditioner. Use after washing when hair is still wet and apply thoroughly to midshafts and ends. Caretrico’s After Treatment Enrich Milk will wrap your locks in a soothing cream and put moisture back where you need it.

Moisturize and polish

Whatever tool or process you’re using to style your hair, be sure to apply a moisturizing styling product for protection, such as Arimino Aqua Moisture, a silicone-based hydration and polishing coating. Aqua Moisture is also great as a finishing touch to smooth flyaways and tame frizz.

You want to look your best for every engagement, especially during December. Help your hair look fresh and healthy by giving it extra nourishment during the winter months.

Happy holidays!

Red Carpet Hair Trends

The 2016 awards season has come and gonewhen recognition for stars’ work is nearly overshadowed by how they look. That’s not a criticism; fashion can be entertaining, too.

Hair in Hollywood: Casual Goes Formal

One noteworthy hair trend on the red carpet was loose, natural waves (see Kate Winslet, Emily Blunt, Margot Robbie and best supporting actress winner Alicia Vikander at this year’s Academy Awards). The look, which is often called “beachy waves”, is of course not at all new in the everyday lives of women, but does run counter to the tradition of highly styled, buttoned-up hair we usually see at formal and red carpet events.

Fine Line Between Loose Locks and a Messy Mane

What’s not to love? The soft curls of this look are universally flattering, and the style is easy to achieve. Or is it? If you’ve tried the look before, you may have discovered that there is a fine line between simple, flowing locks that look natural…and an untouched mane that just looks messy.

When going for this fresh, lived-in look, a few styling tips will save you from veering off into sloppiness.

Split Ends Are Not Your Friends

The only solution for split ends is to cut them off. So if it’s been more than six to eight weeks since your last trim, see your stylist. If it’s been eight weeks, for example, your hair has grown about an inch! You can afford to take a little off.

Dryness Is Another Style Saboteur

Make sure you’re using a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner right for your hair type. Try Caretrico Type H Shampoo for thick hair or Type S for fine hair, and Caretrico Privy Treatments. Treatment Slim Through for thicker hair and Treatment Moist Sleek for finer hair. Don’t shampoo too often; no more than twice per week. Consider eliminating one of your shampoos altogether and replacing it with just a good rinse and conditioning treatment.

Leave-in Conditioners and Moisturizers

Leave-in conditioners and moisturizers are also an important step to add moisture and smooth the hair. Try one of these two Arimino products to achieve a sleek look while also improving hair health: After Treatment Enrich Milk (with hyaluronic acid) for thicker hair, or Bamboo Moisture Veil for fine hair. Apply the product primarily to the mid-shaft and ends of the hair. You’ll be able to see and feel the difference.

If fighting frizz is a battle for your hair type, consider the additional step of a protectant, or coating product, for extra moisture and hold. A favorite is Arimino’s silky Aqua Moisture. A very small amount is sufficient: squeeze a drop onto your hand, rub palms together to warm the gel, then apply all over, especially where you fight frizz.

After a leave-in conditioner, lightly apply a holding product, such as gel or mousse. You won’t need much, but it helps maintain the finished look.


After all the prep work you’re ready to think about styling. Here’s the rule: the less handling the better. Touching the hair too much contributes to frizz. If your hair is naturally curly or wavy, good for you. Simply rake your fingers through your hair (no brushing or combing which will remove curl) and then take a moment to encourage some curls with your fingers. Air dry or use a blow dryer with a diffuser. If diffusing, touch the hair as little as possible. Very important. If your hair is straight you can still have your waves but you’ll spend a little more time and need the assistance of a curling iron or flat iron. Here’s the rule for you: don’t make the curls too tight. You want more of a bend than an actual curl. And leave the ends out. Practice makes perfect.

Follow these steps and you’ll be able to enjoy the natural, free-flowing look of the stars and command your own red carpet attention. Good luck!
