Hair Chi: Adding Life Back into Your Hair (Quarantine Edition)

Hair Chi: Adding Life Back into Your Hair (Quarantine Edition)

The Chi founder Farouk Shami, a hairdresser, wanted it to be his mission to create healthier and safer hair products (as well as a work environment) for everyone.

As of late, we are having to practice healthier and safer environments during the pandemic by practicing self-distancing. It throws off the balance we may have had before. Let us discuss finding balance during uncertain times through hairstyling.

About Chi

When I first heard of the company Chi, I immediately thought of the traditional concept of Qi. Which is a Chinese term of philosophy for “vital life force.” It is what binds all things in life. Being everything and nothing. I thought of Tai Chi that people do in the park, or so I have seen, and in the movie The Karate Kid (both the new and original). A form of martial art. I want to look at the philosophical aspect of qi. That way we can look at how it is a concept of the company brand and why it is a way to add life back into your hair using Chi hair styling tools now out through Avon.

A Little About Qi

Beyond having to maintain the health of our hair to give us reason to look our best with the Chi products I have written about consisting of shampoo, conditioner, serum, and heat protectant as well as the new hair dye line, it may be that your hair needs more life to it. I, for one, have very fine hair that can quickly go limp and cannot keep a curl though I have tried with regular styling tools. May I now look at my none Chi curling brush with disdain at its lack of ability to do what I would like on my hair without needing to use hair curling aids such as special shampoos. Remember Wash and Curl shampoo? Yeah. I used to use that on the regular when my hair wasn’t permed. It was the only way, besides heavy use of super-strong hair spray that is not good for the overall health of very-fine hair, I could keep a curl longer than 30 minutes. Not to say that curls are the only way to add life to hair but also hair straighteners and handheld hair dryers. Heating tools are often used to add life to our hair.

Symbol for Qi

Qi deficiency is when something is off balance. It could be any number or combination of things. Inadequate sleep, not enough water intake, tainted water, poor nutrition, too much of a particular nutrient (least we forget that this is also not healthy), air pollution, mental and emotional un-wellness. The list goes on. If you are wondering what that has to do with hair, well healthy hair and healthy-looking hair add to our overall appearance and look of health. It’s isn’t enough to want to look handsome or pretty, but to look healthy. Hair can give us a glow. Maintaining our qi (Chi) in as many areas as possible, hair included, will help us look and feel our best. I don’t mean you have to do it every day. However, doing it when you need to (for work, for example) or when you need a pick me up (hello Coronavirus stay-at-home orders that are driving us up the wall with cabin fever) or are tired of the same old look can aid in balancing out the off days. Or when you can chill with friends in a messy bun and sweatshirt binge-watching your favorite shows.

I recall a very hard time in my life when I felt as if I would be in that same position day in and day out for the rest of my life. When I began to do my makeup and my hair and picking out an outfit to compliment all that, I felt better. I wasn’t looking to impress but simply to feel better and that I had at least some control over my life’s direction at the time. I easily suffered anxiety attacks and got depressed often. I, for some reason or another, decided I wanted to learn more about doing makeup and taking care of my hair and knowing what to wear and what it meant to wear that particular outfit. Doing all that balanced out the negative in my life. Granted, it wasn’t always easy, but it helped. Many would say it sounds vain. To be honest, I don’t always do it. There are times I feel content sitting in my sweats with a messy bun drinking coffee. Binge-watching many shows until I think I have had enough and maybe read a book.

Avon’s New Hair Styling Tools

Fast forward to now when Avon rolled out a new line of hair styling tools to go along with their other Chi products. As you know, Avon and Chi partnered up last year, as I mentioned in my hair dye review. I got a bit excited about the new hair styling tools. A hairdryer with attachments, a hair curler, and a flatiron. Let’s look at the curling iron first.

The Chi Lava Spin and Curl

Made of volcanic lava ceramic material that has minerals in it that distribute heat evenly and doesn’t stick to your hair. It has several features worth looking at. Such as:

  • 1” Volcanic Lava Ceramic rotating barrel creates bouncy curls and waves
  • Maximum temperature of up to 410°F/210°C
  • Includes pre-set temperature settings with adjustable heat-up times and display
  • Pre-Set Temperatures:
  • – Low 370°F / 188°C – Fine Hair
  • – Medium 390°F / 199°C – Medium Hair
  • – High 410°F / 210°C – Coarse Hair
  • Adjustable Heat -Up Times (Timer Settings):
  • – 15 seconds – Fine Hair
  • – 17 seconds – Medium Hair
  • – 19 seconds – Coarse Hair
  • Curl chamber surrounded by a protective heat barrier for safe usage
  • Directional buttons with tangle protection
  • Temperature display with auto-lock
  • 11 ft. (3.35m) swivel cord
  • 1-hour auto shut-off
  • Dual voltage

It also beeps when it is done curling, which is a nice feature to have if you aren’t sure how long to curl for. An excellent way to know that you won’t somehow singe the hair. In addition to knowing when your curls are set, it also has an alarm to let you know if your hair might get tangled. A fear for many fine hair girls or any of girl.

CHI 1″ Tourmaline Ceramic Hairstyling Iron – Black Matte

This is the product that I have used. I have used crimping irons back in the day but not flatirons. It worked great on both my hair and my daughter’s hair. Read about it here. I will quote the description of the tool as I don’t think I could say it any other way. “CHI 1″ Tourmaline Ceramic Hairstyling Iron utilizes the latest innovative technology combining Tourmaline Ceramic with even heat distribution, producing an exceptionally high amount of negative ions and Far Infrared which reducestatic electricity for that perfect style. Hair is left smooth and silky with an exceptional shine. This hairstyling iron is ideal for all your hairstyle needs. Now you can straighten, smooth, curl, wave, spiral, flip, and bend. Just use your imagination and create your own personal flair.” I really do love how this product worked, and it is now the most expensive hair styling tool I own. Now on to the features of the ceramic flatiron.

  • 1” Curved Floating Plates
  • 392°F(202°C) Maximum Temperature
  • 30-second Quick Heat Up
  • 9 ft Swivel Cord
  • Dual Voltage
  • 2-Year Limited Warranty

Benefits:

  • Reduces Frizz & Static
  • Adds Exceptional Shine
  • Versatile Styling: Smooth, Curl and Flip

Not to forget that this tool also shuts off after an hour of none use. It locks moisture into the hair and seals cuticles as well. The temperatures are set to suit your hair type. Look to curling wand above for info related to that.

CHI Advanced Ionic Compact Hair Dryer

Many women blow dry their hair to get their hairdryer faster and to help set hairstyles. It gives hair volume as well. Something I look for in a hairdryer. The way this one works is by emitting negative ions that reduce frizz and shine. Who doesn’t have to deal with frizz and flyaways when they have done drying their hair? I tend to have to gently use a serum just to manage that. I want volume, not frizz. It has microbial properties that keep the air that circulates through the dryer cleaner when it hits your hair and also reduces buildup in the dryer using blue LED lights. Something new, I learned to be a “thing.” It comes with a few attachments. That helps concentrate and diffuse. Other features are:

  • 1875 Watts
  • CHI Ceramic Technology locks in moisture and maintains body
  • Ion Generator reduces frizz and minimizes fly-a-ways
  • Adjustable 3 Heat / 2 Speed Settings
  • Cold Shot Button locks in curls, waves, and styles
  • Lightweight and Powerful DC motor
  • Air Nozzle Concentrator and Diffuser included
  • Super Compact, space-saver design.
  • The removable filter prevents damaging lint buildup and extends motor life
  • 6.5 ft. (1.9 m) cord for convenience
  • designed for all hair types

To accompany the new products, we have BioSilk Silk Therapy, which, along with the hair protectant, can help keep curls longer.

BioSilk Silk Therapy

A weightless protein product that adds for strength, elasticity, shine, and moisture to hair while reducing frizz and fly-aways.

Main Ingredients

Silk protein… The natural wonder for hair because:

Strength – One of the most durable fibers in the world, silk contains 17 of the 19 amino acids found in hair; it bonds and builds hair from the inside out.

Moisture – Holds up to 2.5-3X its weight in moisture, to improve elasticity.

Shine – Provides unparalleled shine due to its triangular molecular structure.

• Protection – Helps shield hair from UV rays, heat, humidity, and other environmental stressors.

TO USE

Shake well before use. Place a small amount of Silk Therapy in the palms and apply from the scalp to the ends. May be used on wet or dry hair or skin. Use as often as necessary.

My Styles with the Flatiron

Though I have written a review of the Styling Iron, I still want to show you pictures anyway. This is my and my daughter’s hair. I did hers by wrapping the hair around a pencil and using the iron to create tight curls. She loved it. For me, I simply wrapped my hair around the iron, waited about 5 seconds and slowly brought it down to the ends creating big curls. I loved it. It gave my hair more volume which I am always up for. Still, check out my review here. Now these items will be out as of tomorrow April 14, 2020.

Finally

With being stuck at home a lot right now, you few chances to walk outside stylish. People dress-up in Australia right now to take our garbage just to add joy to the day of not being able to go much of anywhere. Or, if you are one of the essential workers that can do up their hair, these new tools are a great way to add life to your hair that stays and doesn’t let the hair loose its style, my daughter’s curls stayed in for two days even with brushing and no hair spray. Do it for that video call you have. Keep a healthy balance of lounge days and days where you want to feel like there is still something to try out. Have a virtual girls night in through Facetime or another video chat platform, and you all can do your hair. Kind of like a “get ready with me.” Stay safe and add some life to your look while you’re at it.

I have a video that shows more of how I used the styling iron on my daughter. Forgive me for having a shaking camera in it. I had the luxury of accidentally deleting that scene and having to redo some of it. And since setting up can take a few minutes, my adorable son wanted to help out. You will find great ideas for Mother’s Day, May 20th, in it as well.

Avon Hair Color Overview

Three Powerful Reasons to Use Chi Essentials by Avon

Amazing to Dye For Hair Color Line by Chi

Busy Bee Hair Buzz

Busy Bee Hair Buzz

Beeswax, to some, is a new ingredient to many products. You have it in lip-balms and in candles and a list of other everyday items. The history of the use of beeswax is fairly lengthy. We as humans have used it since ancient times. It still doesn’t mean that it doesn’t wax (no pun intended) and wane in how popular it is. It will most likely always be of some use in the future just as it has always been since man started using it.

Brief History of Beeswax and Other Bee Products

Researchgat.net has a great book on beeswax and beeswax products. It has a book by Stefan Bogdanov entitled, Online Beeswax Book. In chapter two he talks about the history, use, and trade of beeswax. He mentions the many uses throughout different civilizations of the world that beeswax is used. From Egyptians using it for their curls, to the Chinese beauty regiments using it as anti-aging ingredient. Today it is used in Creams, lotions, lipstick, mascara, eye shadows, deodorants, hair creams, depilatories, hair conditioners according to Bogdanov’s book, last accessed February 29, 2020. But that isn’t the earliest known thoughts that was have on beeswax being used by man. Valencia Spain has cave paintings dating back 8000 years that show people collecting and sharing beeswax.

You may be wondering what kind of beeswax is used in cosmetic products. Well, Wikipedia mentions that, “Purified and bleached beeswax is used in the production of food, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals. The three main types of beeswax products are yellow, white, and beeswax absolute. Yellow beeswax is the crude product obtained from the honeycomb, white beeswax is bleached or filtered yellow beeswax, and beeswax absolute is yellow beeswax treated with alcohol.” and that furthermore, “Beeswax is also an important ingredient in moustache wax and hair pomades, which make hair look sleek and shiny.”

Benefits of Beeswax in Hair Products

There are a few reasons why this ingredient is in hair products. It isn’t just to make everything look smooth and shiny. It also lock in moisture and has vitamin A. In addition to making the hair smooth, it makes it straight. It seals the ends of hair to and prevents strands from further damage from split ends. It promotes hair growth. Some of us can’t grow hair like we used to. I know mine has slowed down. I used to be able to grow enough out each year to donate some to cancer patients. But at some point my hair stopped growing that fast. It can sooth scalp conditions like psoriasis, eczema, and dandruff.

Avon’s Propoli Thera Products Featuring Beeswax and Honey

Avon’s products do all of the above as a benefits to their products and they have a decently sized line of Propoli Thera. Geared mostly to those in need of repair, people with dry and brittle hair can also benefit from the products they have to offer. It is also free of sulfates and parabens. It is not vegan though as vegans do not use honey or anything having to do with bees. That’s including beeswax.

It’s Key Ingredients:

How to Use Them

  • Shampoos: Apply to wet hair, massage from roots to ends, and rinse thoroughly.
  • Conditioners: Apply to freshly washed hair, focusing on the ends, leave on as long as desired, wait 3-5 minutes and rinse thoroughly with warm water.
  • Hair Serum: Apply 1-2 pumps evenly on damp or dry hair, do not rinse, and style as usual.
  • Hair Mask: Apply a quarter-sized amount from roots to ends, paying attention to damaged ends, leave on for several minutes, rinse thoroughly, and style as usual. Can be used 1-5X a week. For extensively damaged hair, use daily and be used as a pre-wash.

My Review

The first time I used the product, I think I may have used a tad too much and didn’t rinse my hair out as well as I should have. So, it did leave my hair feeling extremely thick and it weighed down my hair. I had to re-wash my hair the next day and make sure to rinse it out. My hair felt less thick (that is what the voluminous set does after all) but did look fuller. I feel that to get the full affect of this product it would be best to use every other day. That way the hair isn’t getting over washed. I did love how the shampoo and conditioner worked in my fine hair. Given that I don’t wash my hair THAT often I think I will use it for special occasions and stick with my Chi Shampoo and Conditioner set. See the post I wrote on those here.

Frontal view of my unwashed hair. Looking very limp and oily. Obviously I am not happy showing this. 🙂
After sing Polori Thera Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner. So much nicer!
Side View from the left.
Wonky. You can tell my hair isn’t soft and the color is not right like it is when it is clean.
Need to apologize for the off centered appearance here. My hair looks softer as well.
Side view from the right. Same as the other picture. It looks very dark from the oils weighing it down.
So much better. My hair looks lighter in color and you can see where my grey hair is.

Tips For Extra Volume

  • Sleep with hair in a bun.
  • Blow Dry Hair Upside Down
  • Use Hot Rollers for Added Bounce

Three Powerful Reasons to Use Chi Essentials by Avon

Three Powerful Reasons to Use Chi Essentials by Avon

When it comes to the market on hair, the market value is in the 85.5 billion dollar range. With an expected growth of up to 102 billion in the US alone. Asian countries have the largest market with North America coming in second. Hair has been a way to get attention by either gender for centuries now. Hair has a different meaning and therefore a hairstyle can have a different meaning in all cultures of the world. It is a sign of beauty, a sign of culture, and also a sign of status.

Take a minute to think of what hair means to you. Think of where you may have formed your opinions about hair. Most likely it is due to where you live, your religion and/or your culture. American Indians typically have long hair. It is a strong part of their culture in that men and women are considered to be particularly attractive with long hair. It is considered offensive for them to be told to cut it even to conform to our American standards of looking civilized. This is also the case with other cultures and religions that take pride in cultural hairstyles. American Indians being an example because still to this day, they are ostracized for their culture. Just as many other peoples in America are for their hair. I would like to go into some history behind hair before getting into why Chi Essentials by Avon has three great reasons to buy it.

A “Short” History of Hair

I have touched on some of what makes Native American hair so important. Of the other cultures/religions that have long hair, there are Rastafarian, Sikh, and Nazarites. To name a few. In many Asian cultures, though having long hair is not uncommon, it is the fact of having well kept hair that symbolizes maturity. I can understand this. Seeing disheveled hair is hard on the eyes. Also, time periods should be taken into account. Long hair is not simply a trend at times, it is part of society. Just as skirt lengths have constantly changed, so has hair length. The Middle Ages denoted long hair to status. Most people had long hair. Queens are known for their unique hair styles. Though it isn’t uncommon to see pictures of them with their hair hidden away, they still have long hair. The idea of long hair being the social norm is seen in many paintings of the period,

For those in those wondrous far-off days,

The women shall adopt a craze

To dress like men, and trousers wear,

And to cut off their locks of hair; […]

–Ursula “Mother Shipton” Sontheil, 1583(?)

Short hair has it’s place as well. Most of the time it is on the part of the man to have short hair. Until relatively recently, women have had long hair. Jewish cultures typically have short haired men for example. The history of short hair is more difficult to discuss. Because there isn’t much beyond men keeping short hair, for the most part, and women not cutting their hair because it was seen as their trying to be more masculine. Unless you become a nun. In which case it is more for a ceremony and afterwards you could grow it out but not have any flashy hairstyle. Short hair in many respects indicates the shunning of conventional appearance. To not go with society. More for the women than the men.

Why this is Important

You may be wondering why discussing the history and significance of hair is being discussed in a hair care blog. Because next to why we have hair the way we do in any form must be maintained. Washing hair is care. Conditioning it is care. To keep up with appearances, we have to care for our hair.

Bringing me to the reasons why hair care is important and why Chi Essentials is a good option. To maintain hair we must know our hair type and what we want in our hair to best keep up with how we want it to look. Price is also considered because, admit it, not all of us can afford the right kind of care but it never hurts to know anyway.. Just in case we have the opportunity to splurge.

Three Reasons Why

  • It’s good for all hair types

I have fine hair. Meaning most likely my hair gets oily. I prefer a shampoo that rids the excess oil and also doesn’t weigh my hair down. Because there are two looks for a fine-haired girl: voluminous or like a wet dog. Chi Essentials by Avon is great for daily use (not that you want to go daily unless there is a reason) and for all hair types. I want to add in to not go for creamy shampoos or conditioners for fine-haired clients because products that are clear and have no color, are a better choice. The addition of colors and such are aesthetics. Keeping in mind that people with curly hair, for example, may opt for a no-poo routine. Still, this product is good for dry, curly hair, color-treated and chemically treated hair. As is its companion, conditioner.

With conditioner, which I use little off because I find it also weighs my hair down, if you have dry hair or curly hair, you can leave it on a few minutes and then wash it out.

  • It has less harmful ingredients

Many ingredients found in modern hair care products are harmful to the hair. They strip the natural oils, they create build-up, and sometimes they can breakdown the hair if you are using the wrong products, to begin with. A few of the ingredients you should watch out for are parabens, synthetic colors, and Phthalates. None of which this product line has. They have been found to cause reactions in some and in many places around the world, like Europe, they have been banned.

  • Bang for your buck

If you can shell out more than a few dollars for quality hair products, Chi Essentials is worth the spend. Both the shampoo and conditioner are $18. Most of the time people look for lower prices but this carries with it, a possibility, that the quality isn’t as good. Not to say that sales or clearances or great products demean the efficacy of a product. There are decent priced shampoo and conditioners out there that don’t have harmful ingredients and are good for your hair type.

Tying All Reasons Together

I’d like to tie all the reasons to buy this product line together. what makes this product worthwhile is what people want out of a hair product. For the most part, that is the ingredients. Vitamins A and B strengthen the hair. Among all of its amazing ingredients, it has aloe, pomegranate, and hibiscus. these ingredients together boost moisture, reduce frizz (even us fine-haired ladies and men hate the frizzy), balance our natural pH in our scalp and hair and increase elasticity. For all hair types and lengths, we want the best for our hair and there are some things that all of us want: healthy hair. It is not just a fad that we talk about hair. Or that there are a gazillion products to choose from. But knowing what to look for and why is the key factor in choosing a hair product.

My Experience

The other day I was getting myself and the kids cleaned up. I have to keep a schedule otherwise I will forget to make sure everyone is smell good and clean. Plus, kids tend to not care or keep with routine. This is where parents are helpful. I went to use the small bottles that came with the Chi Essentials Hair Color Kit and before I could pay attention, the water was cold. I had forgotten to wait for it to heat up again after one child took a shower. I had to quickly wash my hair and didn’t feel I had used the products as I should. I could feel some of the products in my hair. For the parts that were properly cleaned and conditioned, my hair was great. This means I can show you how my hair looks when it needs a wash and how it looks after a wash.

Before. I pulled my hair to the side. It easily stayed that way without any product to hold it.

Before the wash my hair was oily, I hate when it looks oily. Because it doesn’t look soft. the shine is gone but also replaced with a different shine. The oily kind. My hair parts weird and sometimes if it is really bad, I can make a ponytail with not tie.

After the wash, my hair looked much more healthy. It had the right amount of shine. It was soft and the smell was just as soft. The colors were vibrant and after three days my hair still looked decent. I wash my hair every four days. I was worried about this product at first because I tend to use Shikai Tea Tree Shampoo. The smell is strong but I am used to it and it never failed to cleanse my hair and my hair stayed clean for 3.5 days. I plan on using it as a weekly cleanser to make sure I don’t get build up in my hair. Because it was great for that. Still, I have found an awesome, great product. I never expected a product to be this great in my hair. All hail the power of Korean products.
