Hello fellow skin activists,

 

Here are a few tips when using sea kelp on your hair. I have tested these on myself and my friends.  For guy and gals, ENJOY.........

 

1.  Prior to blow drying - add a dime size of kelp on its own (which I do), but I use about less than a quarter size.  Using a large round brush or brush or brush of choice.  TALK ABOUT VOLUME AND SHINE WITH NO FRIZZ...

 

2.  You can cocktail your kelp with your usual gel or mousse.

 

3.  If you have wavy or curly hair and you want to blow dry straight - cocktail kelp with your straighting balm.  example: kelp mixed with Lanza Straight Line.  What a nice mix.  I live in Florida, no frizz....... and nice shine.

If you don't wash your hair every day, simply run the blow dryer using fingers or brush on dry hair for a few seconds.  Be gentle when re- blow drying dry hair!!!!!!!!!

 

4.  For really curly hair - Use a larger amount of kelp or mix with your usual gel or mousse and allow to dry on it's own or use a diffuser.   For that nice curly kinda messy look, allow your hair to dry naturally, when its completely dry, go in and separate the curls with your fingers.  That's such a pretty look!!!!!!!  If you don't wash your hair every day, simply add water to your hair the next day to reactivate the hair products. 

 

5.  After color application, wait 2 days or so and wash your hair as normal and either use kelp alone or mix with your reconstructor, apply and wrap a warm towel (microwave the towel about 10 sec)  allow to cool or leave on more than 20 minutes.  THAT'S A NICE HAIR TREATMENT.  SOFT SUPPLE HAIR WITH LOADS OF SHINE..........

 

For finish you can add a drop or two of rose hip seed oil. 

 

4.  I noticed that since Iv been using kelp as part of my hair regimen.  The over all health including my scalp has improved and I even noticed that my hair doesn't fallout like it use to.  I get so many compliments... I totally soak it up.  What I like about the Kelp, my hair doesn't feel like product build up.

I use the Sea Kelp, straight, after my shampoo (in the shower whilst I finish the shower), then after I get out of the shower, Sea Kelp and some of the Flax Seed Gel (with my new Vitamin B5 (panthenol)), and a drop of Rose Hip Oil. 

 

This formula is changing the structure of my hair, making it nice and shiny, and putting wave back in like I had when I was about 10 or 12 (pre-ironing in the '60's).  It is also thicker, and stronger hair.  I am so blessed to be here with all of you.

How will the sea kelp work with chemically treated hair? My hair has been bleached to within an inch of its life, coloured dark, then back to a different colour. Its quite brittle. I wonder if kelp would help.

Hello misschichi,

 

If you have a re constructor that you love, mix it with kelp and process as you normally do.  I color my hair blue black and blow dry every other day.  My hair looks like I have a supper gloss coating.  I like using the alpha parf, semi di lino,(it think that's spelled right) blue liquid deep conditioner mixed with kelp.  I simply break open the vial and pour into a small bowl and I mix in the kelp.  I use a plastic cap and leave it on while I'm cleaning my house. I normally don't time the process, but at least 30 minutes. Patty's recipe sounds good to, I think I shall try it.  I enjoy her brews......

 

I hope this helps you sassy little kitten........

 

Besos,

Sea kelp will definitely help (you know, feed your skin, feed you hair).  You can add a little coconut endosperm, or any number of other actives.  You can use sea kelp mixed with your current shampoo, or mixed with any of the other finishing products that you use.  It really helps bring back healthy hair.

Misschichi-I've been using the sea kelp (making a shampoo w/actives) for 5 months now and believe me - you will never want to use salon shampoo again!  My roots are done every 4 weeks and the sea kelp has brought so much volume back to my hair.  Try it - you will love it!

Will somebody please give me an actual shampoo/face cleanser recipe. PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL!

 

Also, does it matter if you have your sea kelp in the fridge? That is where I keep it. I tried when I first got the sea kelp putting in some conditioner and it just got lumpy and the conditioner wouldn't spread though out the hair. Does it need to room temp? I use it on my face in my creams but I'm not haveing any success with the conditioner and just adding it to my hair. I would really and truly appreciate some help.

 

Thank you all

It's best to mix it in your hand if you are doing conditioner.  Take a dollop of conditioner and add a dollop of sea kelp.  Rub your hands together and run it through your hair.

 

If you want to make a shampoo, there are little tubes that come with the sea kelp.  One is a surfacant for adding to the sea kelp to make a shampoo.  I also mix sea kelp with commercial shampoo.  I do it the same way as with the conditioner.
