Hair thinning, Hair falls, Hair loss? Foltène has the solution! 

Signs of hair loss can be very daunting experience for both men and women. Everyone will experience some form of hair loss at least once in their life time. Most of us are keen to learn, what causes our hair to fall? People are often so quick to conclude that hair loss is linked to aging.  Yes, to some extent age is a contributing factor to our hair health but there are several other factors too. We spoke to haircare experts, Foltène to find out more about hair loss and how their products can help. 


Common Causes Of Hair Loss: 

  1. Stress – Stressful lifestyle/environments can certainly take a toll on our body, which reflects on our wellbeing and mind, this is when our hair shaft is likely to get weaker resulting in hair loss. 
  2. Lack of vitamins – Vitamins such as B12, C, D, E and iron are vital to provide nutrients and to maintain healthy hair. 
  3. Hormonal FactorsHair thinning can also be signs of imbalanced hormones. Menopause is one of the toughest hormonal changes a woman will have to go through. This conjoined with aging, plays a huge factor in increasing hair loss
  4. Medications and supplements – There can be side effects of certain drugs that are used for medical conditions such high blood pressure, cancer and etc. 

But Why Foltène?

Foltène is known for it’s rich Italian heritage and extensive amount of clinical research and trials on anti- hair loss treatments. It has 75 years of market presence globally and continues to expand further with new products and research.  The effectiveness of the products lies in Foltène’s active ingredients; Tricosaccaride® and Tricalgoxyl ®. Foltène’s patented hair loss ingredients have been established as the leading non-drug solution dealing with issues associated with thinning hair, hair loss and scalp issues.

Hair Life Cycle 

These active ingredients are designed to normalise and strengthen the hair life cycle. Each Foltène product is formulated with vitamins and specialised ingredients to nourish and stimulate natural hair growth. The formula does not mix with blood streams therefore it is safe to be used during pregnancy too.


Early Stages of hair thinning?

Age can be a common cause for hair loss, however if this is not treated in the early stage it can make difficult to treat in the latter stage.

Time For You

Hands up if you’re getting enough “me time” in your week? Anyone? That’s what we thought. Taking time to prioritise your own physical and mental wellbeing can often feel like an indulgence. There’s washing to be done, dishes to do, box sets to catch up on… we get it! But the old adage that you can’t pour from an empty cup really is true, and something all of us, particularly if we have family members depending on us, should take heed of.  

Where does one even start on this self-care journey? Fret not allbeauty readers, as always, we’re here to point you in the right direction. Here are a few easy tasks you can incorporate into your day to make sure you stay looking and feeling great all week long.


Monday: Start the Week Hydrated

Eugh, Mondays. The weekend is officially over and its straight back to the daily grind. Do yourself a favour and make Monday the day you really focus on hydrating yourself.

Water Splash Wide - Time for You

Too many of us dip in and out of dehydration simply because we forget to sip on a bottle of water throughout the day. Well, no more! Starting with just one day a week, focus on getting enough water into your system, the rest will follow.  

For bonus points, pop this Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Hydrating Mist into your bag and give your face a spritz throughout the day to hydrate from the outside-in.

Tuesday: Hair Care and Chill

Combine two self-care winners into one, by taking care of your tresses while enjoying some downtime on the sofa. We can’t all get to the salon regularly (or even bi-annually, ahem), but with such a great range of hair treatments available, its never been easier to bring the salon experience into the comfort of your own home.

Hair care - Time for You

One of our favourites is multi-award winning Olaplex Hair Perfector No.3, designed to repair and restore the hair’s cuticle. And better still, it works best when left for at least 10 minutes, so grab a cuppa, put your feet up, and let it do its thing.

Wednesday: Put Your Best Face Forward

You’ve made it to hump day, the weekend is in sight! Prep that skin for whatever the rest of the week throws at you with an at-home facial.

Face Mask - Time for You

Now, in a perfect world we’d all be regularly exfoliating and using a face mask, but let’s face it, sometimes life gets in the way! Once a week, make skincare your priority and take the time to give yourself a quality facial. Cleanse as normal, then use an appropriate exfoliator to remove any dead cells and dirt, before applying a moisturising face mask. Your skin will thank you!

Thursday: Early To Bed, Early to Rise

We know it’s not the most glamorous form of self-care, but getting an early night can make a world of difference to your energy levels, mood and general sense of wellbeing. At least once a week, try to climb into bed an hour earlier than usual. In general, we need around 8 hours of sleep a night, but another few hours will only do you good!

Sleep - Time for You

Changing your sleep habits can be difficult, so if you find yourself wide-eyed and staring at the ceiling, try creating an environment more conducive to sleep. Settling down with a good book can tip the scales toward sleep, and relaxing scents can also help lull you off to the land of nod.

Friday: Soak Up The Weekend

Ooooh yeah! Do you have that weekend feeling yet? Well, there’s no better way to say farewell to the working week than by washing your stress away with a good long soak in the tub. Nothing is quite as relaxing as submerging yourself into a hot bath. Nothing, that is, except for submerging yourself into a hot bath that has added sumptuousness.

Bath and Body - Time for You

Get all sudsy with one of our foamy bath soaks, unwind aching muscles with a fragrant bath oil, or feel the fizz with one of the gorgeous range of Bomb Cosmetics bath bombs. Additional fizz in the form of a glass of wine optional, but always recommended. It’s officially the weekend, after all.

The weekend is an ideal time for those self-care tasks that you can’t make time for during the week. Carve an hour out of your day to put on your favourite music, grab a biscuit or something equally delicious, and get the mani/pedi kit out.

Mani/Pedi - Time for You

Our feet and hands are so hard-working, but they rarely get shown the same attention we give to our face and hair. Pamper yourself with a moisturising foot mask, while you deal with those cuticles and touch up your nails.

Sunday: Don’t You Scrub Up Well!

After a full seven days of embracing “me time”, how will you end your week? Perhaps its time for another face mask, an extra early night, or one last soak in the tub? Well, why not do something different with your Sunday by giving yourself a spa-quality body scrub from the comfort of home?

Body Scrub - Time for you

At a cost of £60+ a session, a body scrub is a great way to slough off the dry skin or lotion build-up that makes your skin uneven. The best part? If you’re willing to put in the work yourself (or can rope in a willing partner), you can get the same results at home. Try our favourites, urban spa and luxury beauty brand Rituals, or 100% handmade, vegan friendly Bomb Cosmetics.

Glycerin

Glycerin is one of the most used ingredients in skincare, featuring highly in the active ingredients of many bestselling moisturisers. You may have also noticed glycerin listed in the ingredients of other items around your home, such as on natural soaps, cough medicines and even baked goods. 

A highly adaptable liquid that lends itself to all manner of uses, glycerin is one of the hardest working ingredients in the world of skincare. Here’s why:


What Is Glycerin?

Most glycerin is vegetarian, being made by heating vegetable fats, such as palm, soy and coconut oils either under pressure or with an alkali. Through this process, the glycerin separates from the oil and fuses with water molecules, creating an odourless, colourless liquid. 

Glycerin has a syrupy consistency and is also sweet, which makes it ideal for using in the catering industry as it lends itself perfectly to confectionary.  You might then wonder how on earth glycerin has made its way into the world of cosmetic beauty products. Well, it turns out that not only is glycerin an incredibly safe ingredient, it also does wonders for our skin.


How Does it Work?

There are three main categories of moisturiser: emollients, humectants and/or occlusives. Glycerin is a humectant, alongside other ingredients like aloe vera and hyaluronic acid. 

Humectants draw water to the skin and bind the water to keep it there. They are quickly absorbed and usually a light consistency, making them suitable for all skin types. 

Emollients fill the cracks on the surface of the skin, creating a smoother complexion and helping to repair your skin’s natural barrier. They are usually a creamy consistency and are suitable for most skin types, though not ideal for oily skin.

Occlusives seal moisture into the skin, preventing it from escaping. They usually come in the form of thick cream or balm and are ideal for mature, dehydrated or dry skin.

As glycerin attracts moisture to itself, it can bring moisture up from deeper layers of skin and also draw moisture out of the air towards the skin, all without creating an oily layer on the skin’s surface. This combination of features make it ideal for keeping skin hydrated, no matter your skin type.


What Products Contain Glycerin?

We have a wide range of skin and hair products that include glycerin, but here are a few of our favourites:

For Oily/Combination Skin

REN Clarimatte T-Zone Balancing Gel Cream

When you need to hydrate your skin without risking a break-out, REN offers the solution. This gel cream reduces oil, hydrates dry patches, and leaves the skin with a matte finish.

For Dry/Dehydrated Skin

Thelgo Hydra-Marine Gel-Balm

Dry or dehydrated skin needs a little extra love when it comes to moisturisation. This gel-balm by Thelgo does just that, combining the nourishing properties of glycerin and aloe vera with heavier ingredients designed to lock in moisture.

For Sensitive Skin

Elemis Hydra-Boost Sensitive Day Cream

With both glycerin and hyaluronic acid, you know this day cream by Elemis will do wonders for your skin’s hydration, and with the addition of orange blossom milk, your sensitive skin will be soothed at the same time.

For All Skin Types

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Hydrating Mist

Combining two powerful humectants, glycerin and aloe vera, this mist from Elizabeth Arden is a fantastic addition to your handbag, either when travelling or just for an afternoon hydration boost. 

For Hair

Matrix Moisture Me Rich

Could your hair do with a boost of moisture too? Glycerin is equally as popular in hair products as it is in the world of skincare. Moisture Me Rich uses glycerin as one of its key ingredients to draw moisture into the hair, leaving you with bouncy, hydrated locks.

5 Tips for Winter Hair Care

As the season changes from summer into autumn/winter, our hair steadily becomes more dry and fragile. Unfortunately, most women know exactly how frustrating it is to battle with hair in this condition, but many of us don’t understand why it happens. 


Why Does My Hair Get Dry In Winter?

As the temperature outside cools, it affects our bodies in numerous ways. Most of us know all too well that winter means dry, chapped skin, but did you know it does the same to your hair? 

As it’s exposed to the elements, the shaft of the hair (the part that emerges from the scalp) becomes drier and therefore becomes more susceptible to breakage. The dry, brittle hair results in a mane that is rough, unmanageable and wild.

Before you resign yourself to spending the next three months in a woolly hat, it’s important to understand how to provide your hair with the extra care it needs to restore its shine and smoothness. 


Breathing Life Back Into Winter Hair

The good news is, reviving your brittle, lackluster hair to more closely resemble your luscious locks of Summer isn’t as difficult a battle as it may seem. We’ve called on hair experts, Novex, to reveal the best ways to take care of winter hair. With these easy tips, you’ll have your shine back in no time.

Take Care with Temperature

This tip applies throughout the year, not just in winter. When you wash your hair, avoid using water that is too hot. Not only can hot water strip your hair of its natural oils, but it can also cause damage to the root, leading to problem hair. Instead, use warm water to wash your hair and consider finishing your shower with a final shot of cold water, this helps your hair to renew its natural shine. 

Don’t Sleep On Damp Hair

We all enjoy a nice warm shower on a particularly cold winter evening, but think twice before wetting your hair. If you go to bed with wet hair, your scalp stays damp during the night. Not only is this bad for the delicate skin, but it’s also an ideal breeding ground for nasty bacteria that can weaken your hair. 

Step Away From The Hat

On a bad hair day, it can be tempting to reach for a cover-up, but wear headbands and hats with care. The use of accessories can actually damage the hair, leading to a self-perpetuating cycle of hair issues. Don your head with decorative accessories sparingly – your hair will thank you.

Up Your Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a fantastic vitamin and is extra important for your health in winter. Not only does it keep the nasty cold at bay, but vitamin C helps to combat hair loss and restore shine. By prompting cuticles to close, vitamin C improves the appearance and condition of your hair, even helping it to maintain colour longer. 

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

It’s a mantra that applies to a myriad of winter complaints, but hydration is especially important for dry hair. Using the right product can provide an extra dose of moisture and revitalise dry hair. Enriched with the purest coconut oil and vitamin E, we recommend the Novex Coconut Oil range to maintain natural moisture and fight frizz. Try the Novex Leave-In Conditioner for deep hydration and long-lasting silky tresses. 

This winter, show your hair the love it deserves with Novex.

Shoosh or Shine? 

One of the things we love most about our growing silver community is that no two heads of hair are the same. Some of us have an icy halo, others have a chic smattering of salt & pepper, but every single grey is different. For some of us our white hair is finer and thinner and for others it’s more a question of taming the wild grey strands with a mind of their own.  That’s why we’re aware that not everyone needs the same products to care for their hair. 

Grey hair can have a tendency to be coarse and wiry and although everyday care may be similar from person to person, what you need depends on the thickness and length of our hair, our lifestyle and many other factors. I don’t use a conditioner every time I wash because my hair doesn’t need it. I have a ‘messy layered’  crop and for the kind of volume and movement I want in my hair, our Shooshing Creme does the trick. If it feels a touch dry I use our Luminous Conditioner from mid hair to ends as its lustrous formula is great for strengthening and gives your silver added shine.   

Our advice is to not take blanket advice on your hair!  If you don’t need to condition every time, then don’t. If your hair works better a couple of days after a wash, then go with that. A good hair care regime is one that’s flexible and works for you and your hair.  A touch of Lifeshine Oil to smooth stray strands may be all the added moisture you need. A soak in the bath with our 3 minute Intense Lustre Mask may be perfect after a week of swimming in the pool or walking the dog in all weathers.  It’s up to you.

We only have 6 products in our range because we don’t think you need dozens.  We don’t make hairspray because I’m not prepared to ditch my favourite Elnett and I won’t create a product just for the sake of it.  I’m a Glorious Shampoo and Shooshing Creme woman with an occasional dabble in our other products depending on what I’m doing. Go your own way. “

How to Deal with Frizzy Hair   

Contrary to popular belief, no hair type or texture is immune to having to deal with frizz. But don’t worry: We’ve got you covered with these helpful hair smoothing tips and tricks, plus the best hair product picks.

What Causes Frizz?

Dry hair and frizzy hair go hand and hand. When your hair is dry, moisture in the air penetrates the hair cuticle, causing the hair to swell and expand, and get frizzy and fluffy. It’s a basic law of science that moisture will always move from areas of high concentration to low concentration—which is also why muggy, humid weather can mean major frizz.

Start in the Shower

It’s not just styling products that can help you manage frizz; using the right system of shampoo and conditioner makes a huge difference. The more moisturising the better. Try Frizz Dismiss Shampoo and Frizz Dismiss Conditioner, which provides humidity protection and hair smoothing.

How You Dry Your Hair Matters

Step one: Swap your usual towel for a microfiber one or even a cotton T-shirt; both are softer and gentler on the hair, and will help keep the cuticle smooth and closed. (A closed cuticle means less moisture can get in and your hair is more likely to stay smoother looking.) Step two: Be gentle, instead of aggressively rubbing it all over your head, think of blotting or lightly squeezing out the water. The less you can rough up the cuticle during the drying process, the better. And the same applies once you reach for your blow-dryer. Avoid flipping your head upside down or working your fingers throughout your hair. Lightly comb or brush your hair downward as you blow-dry, and finish with a shot of cool air to help seal the cuticle. Go slowly and take your time, and ultimately, your result will be hair that appears less frizzy for longer.

 Layer Products for the Best Results

Cocktailing the right frizz-fighting products is the best hair smoothing secret. Frizz Dismiss offers options for all kinds of textures; try the Frizz Dismiss Anti Static Oil Mist Spray if you have fine hair, the Instant Deflate Leave-In Smoothing Serum if you have medium hair, or the Rebel Tame Leave-In Smoothing Control Cream if you have coarse hair. Either way, keep them  near your shower and apply right after you get out. The drier your hair gets the harder it becomes to change the style. So, if you get dressed or put on makeup first, by the time you finally get back to your hair, it may have already started to frizz. Once your hair is dry, look for a finishing product to add extra shine. Diamond Oil Glow Dry Oil or the smoothing and heat-protecting Iron Shape Thermal Holding Spray.

Fight The Freeze

The season for weddings, BBQs and outdoor functions may be over, but that doesn’t mean the social butterfly gets to rest its wings. If anything, with the turn in season we have to up our beauty game. It isn’t easy to look glam at those festive parties and candle-lit birthday celebrations when you’ve been wrestling your umbrella and dodging the downpours. 

Well, in true allbeauty style, we’re here to make your life easy. Today we’ll be highlighting a few key products that will prove to be your greatest allies during the upcoming party season. So, without further ado…

Best Waterproof Makeup Products for Winter

Between the rain, hail, sleet and snow, winter can quickly turn you from a Glamazon into a drowned raccoon. If you want to look your best whatever the weather, you need to have the right tools on hand, but which waterproof products should be a must in your beauty kit? 

Eyes

  • Waterproof mascara, like the High Impact Waterproof Mascara from Clinique, is an absolute beauty essential for winter, ensuring that those lashes stay where they’re meant to throughout the day. But waterproof eye makeup doesn’t stop at just mascara!
  • For those evenings when you want a bold look, why not try magnetic lashes? Unlike traditional fake lashes which rely on glue, these Eylure Baroque corner lashes simply attach to lids using a magnetic applicator which comes included. No risk of your lashes sliding down your face with these!
  • To finish off the look, the Clarins Waterproof Eye Pencil is ideal for creating a smoky eye on a winter’s night out, this is one eye liner that really stands it’s ground! And if you want to avoid wayward brows, you won’t find better than Wunderbrow 1-Step Brow Gel by Wunder2.

Face

It’s all very well having perfect eye makeup, but that’s no help if your foundation is pooling around your collar.

  • With Estee Lauder’s Double Wear range, you can be confident that whatever winter throws at you, your face can handle it. With over 20 shades of foundation and even water-proof concealers in the range, these are the winter must-haves.
  • For a touch of colour, you can’t go wrong with Dior Addict Lip Tattoo, which provides lasting coverage unlike any other – up to 10 hours in fact. And for continuing the rosy cheeked look indoors and out, award-winning Benefit Benetint is a fantastic stain that can be used on both cheeks and lips.
  • Lastly, finish your makeup with a light spray of Glamglow Glowsetter. Not only will it keep your face in place, but as it’s infused with caffeine and tea extracts it will hydrate and invigorate your skin too. Result!

Best Windproof Hair Products for Winter

There’s a time and a place for that windswept look, and as luck would have it, it is usually neither here nor now. Whether you have fine hair which falls flat at the first sign of a breeze, or curly hair which gets a little over-excited with humidity, there’s a product to help balance your hair this winter. 

  • Caught out by a sudden shower? Keep Frizz Dismiss by Redken in your office drawer to tame your hair, whatever the weather. This serum can be used on dry or wet hair and instantly reduces frizz.
  • For fine, flat hair, Kerastase Bouffant Styling Mousse is a godsend, amping up the volume from roots to tips. With built in heat protection and good hold, this is a must for using in conjunction with your curling tongs or rollers.
  • Curly ladies, we got you. You’ve got naturally voluminous hair, but, like cashmere, you’ve got to protect those delicate locks from the elements. Joico Humidity Blocker Hairspray does just that, creating a light protective barrier around each strand which blocks humidity and keeps your curls looking their best.


Which of these products will you be incorporating into your winter beauty regime this year? We’d love to hear what’s working for you.

Kérastase Scalp Scrub

If you haven’t introduced scalp scrubs into your haircare routine yet, what are you waiting for? In the same way that your skin needs regular exfoliation to clear away the bad stuff, your scalp needs it too. A scalp scrub is an essential treatment that your scalp and strands will love. 


What’s a hair scrub?

When it comes to your skincare routine, you may know exactly what your skin is calling out for, such as a helpful dose of hydration, a good cleanse, or deep exfoliation. The same needs apply to your scalp, after all, under all that hair, there’s skin there that needs attention too.

A scalp scrub is a perfect way to ensure that your scalp is looked after. It’s designed to clear away styling products, pollution, dead cells and other impurities that have the tendency to collect on your scalp. Remember: you can’t grow beautiful hair if you don’t create the right conditions for it to thrive. That’s why starting with the scalp is so important. 


What’s the best hair scrub for me? 

Normal to Oily

Enriched with gentle exfoliants like sea salt minerals the Kérastase Fusio-Scrub Energisant is designed to care for normal to oily scalp conditions to help exfoliate the deeply-ingrained impurities found within the hair and scalp. Made with Salicylic acid and Vitamin B5, the formula improves skin comfort whilst helping to nourish your locks and prevent dryness. It helps to instantly reinject up to 72% more volume & up to 6x more shine after one application.

Normal to Sensitive

For those with normal to sensitive scalps, try Kérastase Fusio-Scrub  Apaisant, enriched with Jojoba Seeds and Sweet Orange Peel to gently cleanse your scalp to remove dead cells and dirt particles, therefore, helping improve skin comfort and prevent dryness. 


How do I incorporate a scalp scrub into my haircare routine?

The key here is moderation. Just as you shouldn’t be deeply exfoliating your face every day, the same rule applies to your scalp. Too much exfoliation can leave the skin sensitive, and clear away the essential oils your hair needs to thrive. It’s therefore recommended that you incorporate a scalp scrub once/twice a week into your current haircare routine. Replace your routine shampoo and apply your Kérastase Fusio-Scrub to wet hair, emulsify into the scalp and hair to gently remove all impurities from your scalp and hair. Then let it work its magic, proceed as normal to conditioning. Your hair will have had an ultimate deep cleanse for boosted volume and shine. It’s as easy as that. 


Reinject volume back into your hair while gently exfoliating your locks, all with a scalp scrub designed for your specific haircare needs- try it today! Shop all Kérastase Now:

#2 You’re chopping off your hair and donating it, that’s amazing! Could you share insight on why you are doing this?

It’s a bit of a weird reason as my inspiration was bald before the cancer! My Papa was diagnosed with cancer several years ago and he was always so strong, he didn’t complain once and was always so kind and patient even when you could see him in the worst pain. It got me thinking about how I would handle being in his situation and in all honesty, the thought of losing my hair would be terrifying. Thinking about what he went through happening to a child, and on top of that losing their hair is heartbreaking and I just wanted to help.

#3 How long have you been growing your hair?

About a year and a half!

#4 What products have you been using?

I use a mask about once a week (sometimes every other week if I’m feeling lazy), I love the TIGI Bed Head Urban Antidotes Resurrection Treatment Mask. I have naturally slightly dry hair and it feels so silky after using this. Every day I use the Macadamia Natural Oil  Healing Oil Treatment, and sometimes if I know I’m washing my hair the next day I’ll slather on a load before bed.

#5 Do you know how much hair you are donating? 

The minimum donation is 7 inches and I should be donating around 10 inches. I would love to grow it again after this and donate even more!

#6 What happens when you donate? 

Donated hair is sent to a special factory it’s hand knotted into a wig base, and a single wig can contain up to 10 different donations. The hair is never coloured or treated, so it is always a high quality finish and they are able to offer a range of different natural colours and lengths so suit every individual. A family can then request a wig and can visit an approved salon to choose a wig and have it styled. 

#7 How do you feel about donating your hair?

I’m excited to be helping someone out there feel a bit better during such a difficult period in their lives, but at the same time it’s so sad that any one has to go through this in the first place. Cutting the hair off itself is the easy bit, I’m totally fine with that!

#8 What hairstyle are you going for next and where will you be getting it cut?

The ultimate trim! Nothing fancy, just chopping it off around the shoulder so that I can grow it again without having to wait for layers to grow out or anything. The allbeauty salon in Guernsey, the staff there are so and I trust them fully with my locks!

#9 What the first thing you are going to do with your new hair style?

Try and learn how to style short hair!

#10 What’s your advice for someone that is thinking about getting their haircut and donating it?

Just do it, it will grow back!
