T3 PROS: FOOD THAT IS GOOD FOR YOUR HAIR

 

Nourish your locks too! Our T3 Pros weighed in on food that is good for your hair – read on to see their advice on how to fuel your best hair ever.

Kristin Shaw, T3Pro

Ingesting food that is good for your hair like healthy fats are a way to get your hair shiny, and stronger. For those who each meat: organic, grass-fed butter and ghee are amazing options to cook with. For those who do and don’t eat meat, olive oil, coconut oils and avocados are great too! Make sure everything is organic, and if from an animal – grass-fed. It’s key to make sure that the fats are good for you – shop smart! You can also put herb oils in a hair mask – find a carrier oil or creamy base that works for you: avocado, pumpkin, or jojoba oil and add in drops of rosemary oil for hair growth! 

 

Dimitris Giannetos, T3Pro

I’ve tried many recipes through the years to achieve the best formula for a hair mask treatment and I came up with this recipe!! I’m Greek so of course I couldn’t start this recipe without using 2 oz of Kalamata olive oil, 1 oz of honey, 2 egg yolks and 1 oz of castor oil. If your hair is bleach blonde, instead of using olive oil I recommend using coconut oil because the olive oil might turn your hair green! Leave the mask for half an hour and then rinse with warm water. I suggest that you only do the mask on your ponytail and not your roots.

Amy Komorowski, T3Pro

I love using coconut oil in the hair, it’s kind of a miracle oil. It’s great to use as a hair mask, for deep conditioning or even to protect your hair from the sun.

 

Casey Gouveia, T3Pro

Seaweed is excellent for your hair! I found out when my husband was traveling back and forth to Japan for business. He was eating tons of sushi and seaweed and his hair was growing like a shiny healthy weed! Since seaweed is a marine algae, like other marine extracts, it helps your hair grow stronger! Just think of its gelatinous texture. It builds hair up the same way! It adds hydration to the hair and scalp. Seaweed has fatty acids, vitamins and minerals that help improve hair as well as skin.

 

Maureen Burke, T3Pro

While working with various models in the fashion industry from many different countries, a beauty secret that keeps coming up is powdered collagen. The benefits are healthier skin, hair, bones, joints and nails. Recently I have been adding a scoop of collagen to my tea in the morning and noticed favourable results. I recommend the unflavoured powder so as not to alter the taste of your beverage of choice – enjoy!

 

Andre Gunn, T3Pro

My favourite food for hair is sweet Honey! Not only is it delicious to ingest but it is rich in antioxidants and antibacterial. To have healthy hair the “soil” should be healthy and rich as well. Also a purifying shower head is a key for healthy skin and hair, I love mine from T3! For a honey hair treatment you can add it to your existing conditioner in 50/50 portions and let sit for ten minutes. Be sure to work into scalp and comb through hair for maximum benefits.

POST BEACH HAIR TUTORIAL

Go from ocean air waves to salty hair waves in minutes with this post beach hair tutorial!

 

Step 1: Wave

Sandy, salty waves are the perfect base for this post beach hair tutorial. Throughout the hair, wrap random 1/2″ strands around the Undone Waves barrel from the Convertible Collection. No need to curl all your hair – the new waves are meant to compliment those created by your day at the beach!

Step 3: Tie Ribbon

Place your favourite summery ribbon or thin scarf at the crown of your head. Then wrap it around the topsy tail and tie a knot or a bow and the base of the ponytail.

WHY INVEST IN A £235 HAIR DRYER

Over the course of a woman’s lifetime, she’ll spend countless hours drying and styling her hair. To make these hours less of a chore (and have a bit of fun), we created the Cura LUXE. No, this isn’t your £30 drugstore hair dryer, it is an investment if yourself and your happiness – nobody wants to deal with a slow, fry-your-hair blow dryer at 6 AM, let’s be real! And for £235 (gasp), we are going to offer you a different kind of drying experience.

Luxurious Experience

Our new Auto Pause Sensor is the feature you never knew you needed! Most women start and stop their dryer, set the dryer down, readjust their round brush, then pick the dryer up again. The Auto Pause Sensors knows when the dryer has been released and pauses the airflow when you set it down (so you don’t have beauty products flying all over your bathroom), then resumes when you pick it up again with the same heat and speed settings you left off with for hassle-free styling.

Healthy Hair by T3

All beautiful hairstyles start with healthy hair. T3 approaches drying hair differently, by slowing down the air velocity (how fast the air moves) and increasing the volume (how much air is pushed through the dryer) drying hair faster. We did a survey just to ensure we were heading in the right direction as we developed this dryer and 97% of women agree that the Cura LUXE is powerful but gentle on their hair, and 91% of women agree that dries their hair faster than their regular dryer.*

Smooth and Sleek Hair

We added a powerful built-in ion generator, which enhances the air with negative ions and smooths the hair cuticle. When hair cuticles are smooth, the result is soft, shiny hair every time (who doesn’t love that?!). A slower air velocity prevents hair from being aggressively blown around and causing frizz, 96% of women agree that the Cura LUXE left their hair looking shiny.*

Customised Drying Experience

With 5 heat settings and three fan speeds, you can make your drying experience your own. Turn the Volume Booster on for bigger, volumised hair, and turn it off, to smooth the hair cuticle for more polished, sleek strands. Pick the settings that match your mood – are you feeling sleek and sophisticated or playful and bouncy? By the way, the Cura LUXE also comes with two concentrators, a wide concentrator for quick drying and a narrow, styling concentrator.

Starting halfway down a 1-2″ strand, wrap your hair around the barrel of the brush and comb down and under while applying heat with your dryer. The subtle flips add the perfect amount of movement!

2.5" Round Brush

Turn up the va-va-volume! The Volume 2.5 brush allows you to add lift to your roots and wavy body throughout the rest of your hair. The best part of this brush? It’s the perfect size to accommodate all lengths and thicknesses.

A fully-styled and wavy blowout is at your fingertips with the Volume 2 brush. Create spiraled mermaid curls without an iron by wrapping 1″ sections of hair around the brush and twisting downward as you blow dry (click here for a full video tutorial!).
