Hairstyling with Nisim

28 Mar

There have been several times in history where a slicked back, heavily oiled and stylized haircut held prominence. Most notable of these styles is the pompadour hairstyle worn by greasers. It has been recently adopted by those enamoured with vintage culture of the late 1950s and early 1960s. This type of hair style uses oily finishes from a thick pomade to achieve the hold and shine that is associated with a rock and roll or rockabilly subculture. That being stated not all of us want the oily finish that waxes or pomades can give your hair. Trying to find the right product can be a hassle. You may have struggled to find a styling product that gives the right amount of control without causing a heavy load on your hair or making it overly greasy just to stay in place.


While you can get herculean hold by using something like rubber cement with that matte look, it is a very bad idea since not only will the rubber cement you ruin your hair, you will also ruin your scalp. Jokes aside you need to look at how much of a matte you want to focus on. A majority of products when applied will have a wet or greasy look on your hair but after a short period of time will look dry and product free, still having incredible hold and style. While not always something that is explained when you look at a product take a quick look at what the product is made of. In the case of gels opt for a formula fortified with natural conditioners as they keep hair from getting a crispy flakey look. The after effects of any style will vary on your hair, the weather, and how you apply the product. So if you style with wet hair your hair will look different than if the same style is applied on dry hair. When thinking about styling you should experiment with varying products and styles before settling on a look which provides easy styling and a solid look.


Even though there are several products that claim to hold your hair without the grease or flakes, this will end the searching for the product for perfect hold. Turn your energy from needing to finding that special something that really provides an all-rounder for styling hair without weighing down your hair. While there are many products on the market, you can be certain of  one set of products that stands out. These products are Nisim Nutrient Enriched Styling Gel and Styling Spray.  These two products are made with herbal ingredients that infuse your hair with essential nutrients, leaving it strong yet flexible all day long. It helps to prevent dry scalp, crunchy hair, and sticky messes. Both the gel and the hair spray feel lightweight and look natural as if nothing is even in your hair. It will look as if there isn’t any product in your hair when you use the hair spray. The gel will add a thin texture to the hair without looking oily or greasy. When using either the hair spray or hair gel you can expect to keep your hair in place for the majority of the day and holding even in hot and humid conditions. A strong plus side to the gel is that you won’t have the downside of dry white gel flakes falling off as the gel dries out on your hair over the day.


One you have your hands on Nisim Nutrient Enriched Styling Gel you can create fun and funky hairdos! The styling gel has the texture of a cream while still maintaining the feel of a gel, Nisim Styling Gel delivers body and shape to every strand.

If you aren’t looking for a gel or need something that provides required hold with minimal application Nisim Nutrient Enriched Styling Spray is for you. You can spray and style or spray it out similar or a hair spray to maintain the look and hold of your hair. Nisim Nutrient Enriched Styling Spray is a non aerosol so you can easily just plop it in your bag for travel and have it ready for your hair in next to no time.


Started facing the problem of Gray hair?

15 Feb

Silvery hair is an exemplary indication of maturing and age. We hereditarily contain distinctive levels of melanin colors that lessen as we age bringing about the hair to turn gray.


One of the best solutions for silver hair is Argan oil. Argan oil has the antioxidants that prevent the oxidation of the hair pigments that gray the hair. It likewise fortifies the development of new more shaded hair instead of gray. Some other reasons for hair turning gray might be because of drying of the hair follicle and diseases or infections. Argan oil can saturate the hair and moisturize the hair to protect against contaminants. Argan oil keeps away dandruff, making the hair stronger postponing the loss of hair colour into a dull shade.


Application is quite simple. Take a pure argan oil and after you have shampooed and cleaned the hair, comb the oil through the wet hair. Apply the mixture onto your hair making sure to spread it evenly throughout your scalp and massage gently. Maximum benefits occur when the Argan oil deeply penetrates into the hair roots. Massaging your scalp will be necessary. You can leave the oil in your hair for about an hour and then rinse with some warm water, you can also do a quick and light application in the morning to leave in during the day. If you leave the oil in during the day though your hair will look greasy unless you have time to blow dry it out. You can also apply the oil overnight so that oil keeps longer and moisturizes further. The process should be repeated 2-3 times in a week, and within no time, the graying will slow down.

Frantic Rush in the Morning – You and your Long Hair

12 Dec

The frantic rush of the morning is something we all experience at one time or another in our lives. Sometimes there isn’t enough time to style long hair. That being said if you don’t have long hair yet, why don’t you get some Fast shampoo and conditioner and lock in on its promise of turbo-charged hair growth and get the answer to your long hair dreams. While there isn’t a magic spray that you can use to get crazy fast hair setup hacks, there are a few simple styles that look presentable and professional. These should all be something simple to setup in less an a minute and it is something easy for you to practise while your at home alone.


First make sure you have some things on hand before you even consider starting a quick hair fix process. While you don’t necessarily need an emergency kit to fix your hair, having some readily available hair products can make this adventure a short one as it was intended. Making sure you have a solid brush and some elastics can make this process go smoothly. Extra things to include are styling sprays and gels, a volumizing spray and sometimes a straight edge like a pencil to put inside of a style like a bun.

Now that you’ve prepared a spot or a drawer with the necessary fixes mentioned above now it’s time to look at what you can do with your hair in a time crunch. There are several styles that you can do if you have more time but you’ll have to keep it simple. Try to avoid anything where you will need to use a heavy heating product or tool as they take more time. If you have to heat a curling iron then that hairstyle is not a quick fix and you may as well style your hair completely as if you had plenty of time.


Let’s break it down into three simple hairstyles you can use and how you can get your hair into that style during a quick rush in the morning or evening.

Messy Bun

Pull hair into a high pony and lock down any flyaways with an elastic headband laid about an inch from your hairline. Wrap the length of your pony into a bun, twisting as you go, and secure with an elastic band or bobby pins. Use a pencil or the end of a tail comb to evenly lift the section of hair between the headband and your bun for volume.

Double Pony

Pull the hair above your ears into a half-up half-down pony, leaving the hair beneath your ears loose. Use a brush to sweep the hair up for more volume and to fill it out slightly. Pull the remaining hair into a pony right beneath the first pony tail. The tease the top pony as it settles down on top of the original pony.

Half up and Half Down

If your hair still holds some of the style for yesterday you can do another quick fix to ride that out a little longer until you need to wash and style again. Pull hair into a half-up half-down style, leaving a few face-framing pieces out, and secure with a clear or hair-colored elastic. Next, take hold of the bottom part of the pony. Create a little space above the elastic and loop the pony through it.

While these are only a few simple style to help set up your hair, there are plenty more you can find online or from a stylist. Remember the key to these styles is ensuring that it can be done quickly and effortlessly needing little to no extra products or tools. If you can’t get it perfect it is okay, these are temporary fixes to a full style you just did not have the time for. As you may have noticed a majority of these style pull the hair from the face so if you can’t get your hair perfect make sure you have the time for a little makeup as an accent or to make sure if your have a beard that it is brushed. It only takes a few small steps to make sure that you casually pass the “did you go out late last night?” test.

What’s Happening with Hair Loss

28 Nov

While hair loss is always seen at the domain of aging men there are more and more reasons people are experiencing hair loss. Fortunately with the internet you can easily search and find list and list of reasons you may be seeing hair fall out. There isn’t anything to be alarmed about if you’ve begun to notice it. While it is impossible to predict how quickly anyone will lose hair. It is estimated that one hair loss begins the rate of hair loss of about 5% per year. Once they have started to notice hair loss, most men take 15–25 years to lose most of their hair, but a few are completely bald after 5 years.


So you have roughly 5-25 years to fix a problem correct? Why leave it for later when it can be easily addressed sooner. If your hairloss is the typical male pattern baldness then you will need something to fight against DHT. DHT is Dihydrotestosterone is an endogenous androgen sex steroid and hormone which if produced locally at the site of hair follicles and not systemic DHT, is the primary causal factor in male androgenetic alopecia or baldness. This means if it starts to appear on your scalp you will start to notice you hair loss. What you will need is something that will help stop the DHT from resting and staying on your scalp and causing the hair loss. You can use several shampoos however they tend to use chemicals and their provided benefits only function if you continue to use the products to combat the hair loss. What you can use instead is Nisim Newhair Biofactors Shampoo to cleanse the scalp and wash away the DHT. Then follow up the shampoo with the Hair and Scalp Extract to start nourishing the follicles to help produce new hair.

While the common reason of DHT has been addressed there are also several other causes for experiencing hair loss. Below is a breakdown of some other reasons you see hair fall and how you can easily address these issues either with other products or changes to your hair style, diet or another factor.


Harsh hairstyles or treatments:

Hairstyles that consistently use rubber bands, rollers or barrettes, or pull hair into tight styles can inflame hair follicles. So can incorrectly used chemical products, heavy heating tools and harsh dyes and  bleaches, If you have causes damage to the scalp the hair loss will unfortunately be permanent. So you should try to focus on hairstyles and hair treatments that won’t put heavy stress on you scalp and hair. Natural is in and this also goes for black women who have recently seen an increase in the positive public view of thicker and curlier hair both to style and maintain.


Hormone imbalances:

In both men and a majority of women, hormonal shifts from different factors ranging from age to birth control pills, pregnancy, childbirth, menopause or hysterectomy can induce more hair follicles than normal to enter the dormant phase. This means hair won’t grow and your natural hair loss as your hair goes through its cycle will seem drastic. Things like pregnancy will be a temporary loss and your hair will grow back quite rapidly once the pregnancy is over. For other factors of hormonal imbalances you will need to speak with your doctor if it’s related to medication or personal health and they will be able to provide solutions or explain if the problem is temporary.

Illness or surgery:

The stress from sickness or surgery may prompt the body to temporarily cease nonessential tasks such as hair production. The most common illness to directly cause hair loss is an autoimmune condition called alopecia areata, which has no cure and causes rapid body-wide hair loss. If you are experiencing extreme stress of sickness the hair loss will stop once those stresses have passed and you can continue to normal hair growth.

Medications and vitamins:

Cancer chemotherapy, which attacks hair follicles in its attempt to kill all fast-growing cells around the body, is a well-known reason for hair loss. As was stated earlier if you are taking a medication, such as a blood thinner, you will experience hair loss. You will need to speak with your doctor to ensure that the medical solution he provides can help if you feel that hair loss is having a adverse effect on your life.

Nutritional deficits:

Heavy dieting or eating disorders such as bulimia and anorexia can temporarily stun hair follicles to cease growth. Maintain a proper diet which provides all the essential nutrients and vitamins you need and you should see a return to your natural hair growth and stop hair loss.

As with anything related to the body there are several reasons why one thing may be happening. Hair loss is not removed from this situation. If you are experiencing hair loss you should take a look at your lifestyle and health as it may be something related to an easy change in your day to day before going off on an extreme. Once you’ve taken a look at the causes try out New Hair Biofactors and see what happens!
