Hair Health & Beauty

HOW TO HAVE BEAUTIFUL & healthy HAIR

How do we define beautiful hair? There are certain universal attributes we desire; shine, strength, volume, moisture, body, bounce and health. When our hair fails to meet these markers we often feel disheartened, discouraged and lost for answers and effective solutions. Yet each and every one of us is capable of having beautiful hair.

UNDERSTANDING HAIR HEALTH

What does it mean to have beautiful hair? It might seem like an obsolete term or stroke of luck that some women have luscious locks while others struggle to keep their precious strands. However, hair health and beauty is the result of a complex biological structure and cycle. While some factors lie outside of your control like medical illnesses or life events, you do have control over your daily health and beauty routines. 

FACTORS THAT INFLUENCE HAIR HEALTH & BEAUTY

Nutrition

Hair is anatomically made of rich protein cells called keratin. Follicles feed on nutrients in order to resume a healthy growth cycle. From this, it’s easy to deduce that what we eat influences our hair health and beauty. Eating foods that lack nutrients can starve the follicles of vital growth nutrients and micronutrients.

“Micronutrients are major elements in the normal hair follicle cycle, playing a role in cellular turnover, a frequent occurrence in the matrix cells in the follicle bulb that are rapidly dividing." - The Role of Vitamins and Minerals in Hair Loss: A Review by Almohanna, Ahmed, Tsatalis and Tosti, 2018

The fact is that our food choices can largely define the health and beauty of our hair. Furthermore, crash dieting shocks the body, and hair growth cycle to cease the growth.

What you can do:

  • Enhance your intake of nutrient-rich foods, get adequate protein and Vitamin D intake.
  • Stock up on lean meats, leafy greens, and foods rich in Omega fatty acids and B-vitamins.
  • If the source of the nutrients are foods that go against you palette, a nutritional supplement formulated for hair health benefits may help replenish mineral deficiencies.
  • Lastly, monitor your water intake to ensure you're drinking enough fluids and staying hydrated.

Exercise & Circulation

Exercise seems to be the solution to most of our ailments, and rightfully so. To function at the optimal capacity, there are few things as influential to our overall health and wellbeing as regular exercise. Consistent exercise enables the natural flow of blood, oxygen and nutrients through the body so that you can achieve peak health. 

What you can do:

  • Consult with your physician about the best options for you to start exercising. It is generally recommended to get at least 150 minutes of moderate exercise, or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic exercise weekly.
  • Find a routine that works for you and focus on consistency.
  • The key to a successful exercise regimen is to do what you enjoy, whether it walking, swimming, running, rowing, cycling or yoga.

Scalp Massage & Circulation / Blood Flow

Hair follicles are fed by tiny capillaries that bring blood, oxygen and nutrients vital to cellular functions. Have good flow circulation and blood flow as a result of exercising therefore helps with overall hair health.

Beauty Routines

The way you treat your hair has a significant influence on your hair health and beauty. The goal is to create a healthy environment for your scalp. The way we style our hair and take care of it ultimately shapes its body, volume, health and shine. Too much heat can dry out moisture and lead to breakage. Too much product can weigh hair down and pull at the follicles or even clog the follicles, leading to shedding and hair loss. Put the microscope on your beauty routines: are you wearing tight hairstyles? Are you going too many days between washes? Women are busier than ever, so who can keep track of a beauty routine? We completely understand. Yet the solution to many hair health and beauty issues lies right there in front of us: it’s how we handle and care for our hair.

What you can do:

  • Wash and condition hair regularly with a high quality products to eliminate buildup and residue that can clog hair follicles and ultimately, stifle growth.
  • Limit heat tools and blow drying by using cool temperature settings or a thermal protectant for an extra layer of protection.
  • Avoid chemical processes that weaken your hair.
  • Let your hair flow. Tight updo's on ponytails tug and pull at the hair follicles which leads to Traction Alopecia, a condition where hairs fall out from being tugged, pulled, or kept too tight for long periods of time that can ultimately damage the hair follicle.

Love my Follea Rene - and the amazing customer service!

I considered purchasing a wig for years as my hair became increasingly thin. I finally decided the time was right and I’m so thankful to have found Follea. I purchased the Rene 12 inch in Caramel Latte and I absolutely love it – both the color and style are perfect. Stylist consultant, Tracy Romo, was so incredibly supportive and knowledgeable -- she walked me through every step of the process. She assisted with measurements and answered all of my questions via video calls. I can’t say enough about the amazing customer service I experienced from beginning to end. Tracy guided me in the right direction every step of the way, even sending me helpful videos and styling tips. I honestly couldn’t be happier with my experience.

Easy Beauty!

My Follea Style (6-11) is in all honesty the most comfortable wig I've ever worn - and I hate anything on my head! This wig just... goes where it's supposed to, no pulling it this way or that, no realizing your doggone wig is crooked.. AFTER you walk in to work. This success is in no small part to the Fit Kit I was sent to make sure of my size. 😊

Also, to say the hair is beautiful gives beauty a bad name. The hair is stunning. (I wear color Latte.) My consultant, Ashley, virtually took my hand to guide me through the process of buying my wig. Her help was and still is invaluable.

My hairdresser is very comfortable styling wigs. She created just the right "style" for my Style. That said, even straight from the box, Follea rocks!

Reading your Follea experience warms our hearts, our goal and mission is to help women all over the world feel beautiful, confident and like their best self. Ashley is an amazing and knowlegable guide, that will continue to be with you on your hair journey!

We invite you to join our @Follea community on Instagram, to learn best practices for your new Follea.

Thank you very much!

Love,

Wig #6

The ready to wear wig I received from Daniel Alain is beautiful. The packaging was so respectful of the wig. So impressed. I called with questions before purchasing and the staff was very kind and respectful as Loosing my hair was so unexpected and stressful. Thank you for wonderful customer service and a beautiful wig. So many compliments on how it makes me look. Thank you.

We are honored and so glad to hear you had a pleasant experience! Thank you or trusting us to help you during your hair-loss journey.

Thank you !

I had an amazing experience with purchasing a wig with Follea.
I can’t say enough about Tracy and the VIP service I got from her. She was always there on the other side of the phone , no matter what day or time and help me every step of the way!
I have never had such great customer service in any of the other leading wig companies I bought wigs from. Hands down the best!
Thank you

Thank you very much for sharing - it means the world to know that you had an exceptional experience with Tracy.

Tracy Romo is a life changer!

When you first go through your personal hair loss journey, you go through so many emotions and sometimes you get desperate. People like to take advantage of those searching for an answer. After making a very costly mistake, Tracy was a game changer for me! She was amazing, very knowledgeable and helped me understand what to look for, how to ensure I got the right size, face timed me to measure and ensure it was correct. I cannot say enough amazing things about Tracy, and my amazing Follea wig.

Kim, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience Daniel Alain. It warms our heart to hear to Tracy was such a positive impact. We would love to see your new hair debut, tag us on instagram @Follea.

Style 10 Inch Color 5005 Macchiato (comes with a soft rooting)

This is my first wig but not my first attempt with alternative hair. Its been a journey and one I knew I wanted to take with Follea. I was not wrong. The hair is silky soft and beautifully shiny. The staff is great and wonderful to work with. Their online consultation process is just what I needed. I received sample caps to try on to determine which size is the right size for me. I received color swatches as well to make the color selection process was a breeze. It does make a difference to see to the colors in person, dont be afraid to ask for color swatches. To see them against the light or while your home is worth it. All this happened after the online consultation, which was simple and fun. The rep provided samples of everything, explained the differences with each one. This helped me make a decision on what was right for me. Getting the samples of the wig caps and color swatches was a fun part of the experience but it also made me feel good about my decisions. I often worry about getting the wrong size and color. Once I was set ( and yes I changed my mind a bit) we went forward with the order. After I received my wig and cut the lace, the team was still there to help me with any questions I had.

Overall a great online purchasing experience. Once I received my Follea, I instantly knew this was it for me. I loved it and I was confident to wear it out.

Feeling Myself and Happy with a beautiful Follea Style, 10", Irish Cream

There are no words to fully express how grateful I am for finding Follea and meeting Janet. Her kindness combined with a professional, yet so gentle, advice helped me to find my beautiful natural looking European hair. Janet patiently showed me different styles and sizes (my head is so small!). She has never pushed me to anything. Only offered support and help on the way to my decision, and eventually ordered (incredibly urgently) the right size. I wish all patients to meet someone like Janet on their way! Before I found Follea, I faced a few horrible pushy people who wanted to make money of my sensitive, fragile situation of suddenly losing hair.
Today, I can face the Universe with a smile, again. I am back to work and normal life, interacting with people, attending important business meetings. Letting my health recover in calm confident state.
Thank You to Follea and Janet. May the Blessing and Kindness come back to You Multiplied Million Times.
I am already thinking of ordering a second Follea Style (bit longer this time). Every girl needs a special occasion HAIR! I have found mine.

Follea's Petite

Recently, I bought the Petite in Chai Latte blonde with a natural-looking darker root and customized my piece by adding a few wispy bangs. If you are like me and try to stretch the length of time between washes to prevent an itchy scalp and breakage, this little priceless gem is a quick four clips away from a good hair day.
