Healthy Foods for Healthier Hair

Nourishing the mind, body, and spirit work in unison to help your skin, hair, and nails shine bright. In short, your diet MATTERS when it comes to healthy hair. Nutrients are the building blocks of keratin. Keratin can be found in protein-rich foods like lentils, Greek yogurt, poultry, nuts, and quinoa. These proteins are the building blocks for a healthy lifestyle, working to smooth your strands and keep your locks looking full and glossy. With the help of the best hair salon in Miami Beach and the top hairstylists in Miami at Red Market, of course! 

 

According to O The Oprah Magazine, fusing superfoods into your diet helps hair growth. Superfoods like biotin proteins found in eggs and almonds help to prevent hair loss, collagen from fruits like guava and strawberries strengthen locks, and Omega-3 fatty acids from salmon and chia seeds promote growth. 

 

Consuming fresh fruits and vegetables bursting with antioxidants nourish your hair, skin, and nails from the inside out. Vitamins found in leafy greens and delectable fruits act as supplements to boost your hair health. Deficiencies in vitamins such as vitamin d, iron, and zinc make hair brittle, cause shedding, and stunt hair growth.

We reached out to Domonique Ebra ( @consciously.vegan )who gave us an incredible vegan hair mask recipe.

DIY Nourishing Hair mask:
– 1/2 Banana
– 1 Avocado
– 1 tablespoons of coconut oil

Blend ingredients, apply to hair from roots to end, let sit for 30mins then rinse!

Consuming nutritious food is one way to benefit hair health, but you can also use superfoods to create hair masks. The Institute for Integrative Nutrition highlights a unique mask using proteins found in raw eggs for an at-home topical treatment that stimulates hair growth. Once a week, massage a beaten egg into your scalp, let the mask set in your hair for 15 minutes giving the proteins time to revitalize your follicles, then jump in the shower and wash your hair!

Hot Topics: Balayage vs. Foil

 

The age-old question, Balayage vs. Foil when highlighting? It’s been a hot topic at every salon’s coffee station, by stylists and clients alike. It’s not only an essential conversation, it’s imperative to better understand what you want from highlighting your hair. So at Red Market beauty salon, we decided to delve in and do a little investigation on this hot topic of the week. 

 

 

In French, Balayage means “to sweepingly paint,” hence why this technique gives your locks an Instagram worthy sun-kissed look. Balayage’s less structured technique creates a soft-effect using a freehand technique to paint your hair and open-air color processing, resulting in a more natural highlight.  Balayage is perfect for those looking who are new to color treating their hair and seek more infrequent maintenance options. 

 

 

We went straight to the source, one of the top colorists in Miami, Martin Ducasse of Red Market beauty salon his thoughts on Balayage vs. Foil. “Balayage is great for someone looking for a very subtle and low maintenance look. The dramatic ombre colors you see on social media are generally achieved using foils since we need to lift dark hair to a very light blonde. Foils allow the hair to lift quicker and stronger to get the desired look.” 

 

The Foil technique is more controlled from root to end, foil-wrapped hair sets during the highlighting treatment. The heat conducted in the foil enables the product to infiltrate deeper, creating a brighter contrast between hair strands and giving you a more dramatic look. Foiling differs from the Balayage highlighting technique in that the process takes longer and requires more maintenance.

 

Whether Balayage or Foil is your go-to treatment, Red Market hair salon in Miami Beach is ready to make your hair goals come true. 

Why post- quarantine color isn’t “sticking”?

 

 

Weeks and weeks of cabin fever had everyone flocking to their hairdresser for a post-quarantine color and haircut.  After dying and dying, we hit what seemed like a conundrum. Colorists were treating hair that wouldn’t take on color dye! Clients were getting root touch-ups with grey not getting covered. Lucky for you, the best hair salon in Miami, Red Market, discovered the reason why.

 

During quarantine, many of us unknowingly started Pinteresting away our time, concocting innovative home hair care rituals. From applying a bit too much dry shampoo for those Zoom happy hours to covering up roots à la Eva Longoria with at-home root touch up kits, and fulfilling the natural healing trends with coconut oil follicle masks. Those social crazes got the best of us.  

 

These “so-called” solutions caused a layer of sediment build-up on our scalp. Fast forward to post-quarantine styling and that build-up is preventing color from attaching to the hair follicles of those pesky greys. Clients were coming in to dye their hair with the top hair colorists in Miami and seeing grey roots sprouting just hours after their treatment. 

It took a few clients to find the solution, but Red Market Miami hair salon made a remarkable discovery, _______ Clarifying Shampoo! Yes, SHAMPOO!

 

Using a clarifying shampoo 30 minutes before your coloring treatment, triple scrubs the roots of your hair follicles and cleans your scalp to prep your locks for color! 

 

Let’s get shampooing!

The New Normal at Red Market Salon

self-confidence              noun

self-con·​fi·​dence | \ ˌself-ˈkän-fə-dən(t)s  , -ˌden(t)s \

: confidence in oneself and in one’s powers and abilities

 

The dictionary defines self-confidence as having a belief in one’s powers, which derives from the Latin word fidere’ meaning “to trust”; therefore, having self- confidence is about trusting in the power of YOU! 

If these quarantined months have shown us anything, it’s that when we come face to face with challenging moments we find new ways to trust in ourselves. Discovering happiness comes in many shades, at Red Market Salon, we like to help your hair find its happy.

VOGUE’s May issue shines a light on the positive impacts salons have in our sense of ‘feeling good’ in day-to-day life. The article is titled, “How Hair Salons Will Be Transformed by the COVID-19 Pandemic.” While it’s understandable that families across the globe are facing pressing needs, people have “realized how much they rely on their salons as a comforting source of self-care and community.” We are longing for the positive ‘feel-good’ impact haircuts and color touch-ups have on our self-confidence, which leaves hair stylists and salons playing an invaluable role in our lives.
