A Simple Guide to Having Healthy Straight Hair

The key to having beautiful shiny straight hair is not as complicated as you might think... all you need is the right hair beauty products! It really is true! Use the right hair products in the right way and you can have healthy straight hair like Jennifer Aniston (well close enough).

So here are the hair care products that we've found to be the most successful with some simple tips to give you your healthy and durable straight hair...

  • Milkshake No Frizz Glistening Shampoo Oil. This is a completely natural shampoo designed to eliminate frizz. The unique blend of Date Seed Oil, Abyssinain Oil, Avocado Oil, Vitamins A, D and E, and Rice Bran Oil make for strong, shiny, smooth and frizz-free hair!
  • Urban:Tribe Smooth Shampoo. Another shampoo great for straight hair! This shampoo is famed for smoothing the cuticle and therefore giving sleek and healthy hair.
  • Urban:Tribe Smooth Conditioner. Great for use with Urban:Tribe Smooth Shampoo or with any other professional shampoo. For extra smooth hair, leave this conditioner for 3-4 minutes after application before rinsing out.
  • Don't forget to care for your hair's needs as well as your own! With excessive styling (i.e. blow drying and straightening) your hair will become damaged. Be sure to use a good, rejuvenating conditioner to restore your hair's natural health. Also, make sure you use professional products to protect your hair before blow drying and straightening.
  • Macadamia Hair Nourishing Leave-In Cream Natural Conditioner. This is a thoroughly nourishing conditioner which will leave your hair soft and healthy. Perfect for everyday use, also perfect if you're in a hurry as there is no need to rinse this conditioner out... ensuring bounce and shine all day long!
  • Milkshake Leave-In Conditioner. Another very successful leave-in conditioner as it keeps your hair under control all day. Leaves your hair soft, shiny and easy to style.
  • Use Keratin Complex Thermo Shine before blow drying or straightening your hair. This professional thermal styling spray will ensure healthy hair despite straightening. Use this product every time you straighten your hair to avoid damage and frizz!
  • Milkshake No Frizz Glistening Milk. This is a very versatile and simply brilliant product!! This product is designed to smooth the cuticle therefore leaving your hair STRAIGHT! It will deeply moisturise your hair whilst supplying light support to your hair so that it can stay straight all day. This can be applied to wet or dry hair. Use before straightening to help protect and moisturise hair and/or use after straightening to shape your hair as you wish so that it will stay the way you like it... straight!

Now go and enjoy your new straight AND healthy hair!

A Girls Guide to Naturally Healthy Curls

Do you have naturally curly hair and just don't know how to handle it? Well, with the right advice and the right hair care products you can really start to love your beautiful curls!

Curly hair can either be a dream or a nightmare. If you don't treat it right it will end up being a frizzy mess but if you follow some of these simple steps and use good hair products your curly hair can be a dream! You'll make all the others jealous!

So here are some ways to be kind to your curls:

  • Wash your hair 2 or 3 times a week, no more! Washing your curls too often will just make them more difficult to manage. If you find that your hair is too dry then simply condition it in between washes, either with a regular conditioner or a leave-in conditioner.
  • Don't use hair straighteners/dryers too often as this really will damage your hair. If you do want to straighten your hair then be sure to use a revitalising treatment afterwards or better yet, a damage-prevention product before styling!
  • Sleep on a silk pillow case as this will be far less rough on your curls than a cotton one.
  • Be generous with the products you buy, treat your curls well and use some professional products. These need not cost the earth but they will make such a difference to your curly hair.

Here are some professional hair products for you to try out:

  • Try MOP Hair Defining Cream to give your hair the desired final look. Gently manipulate your curls with this defining cream for the beautiful curls you've always dreamed of!

Breakthrough Tangled Hair - Our Top 8 Tips!

There is help out there for those of you with constantly tangled hair! Does your hair tangle the minute you put the brush down? Well fear not, we are going to give you some tips and suggest some products to help you deal with those tangles!


  • Fine hair often tangles very easily so try using a volumising shampoo to avoid this problem.
  • Rinse your hair with cool water as this helps to seal the cuticle, therefore avoiding frizz/tangles.
  • Do not be too rough when drying your hair with the towel! Don't rub hair with the towel, just pat it dry.
  • Use your fingers or a wide toothed comb to separate the hair strands a little, instead of attacking your hair with a brush the minute you notice some tangles!
  • Use a detangling product after washing hair.
  • Wind will tangle hair so just try to protect it a little.
  • Use good quality hair straighteners as these will pull on your hair less.
  • Try to gently untangle your hair as soon as you can rather than leaving it to worsen.


Try out a few of these products and you will be amazed with the results. Give your hair a new lease of life!
