Summer & fresh AF

The temperature is on the rise and as a community announcement we thought we needed to remind you of a few hair care FACTS


It’s true, we all believe what we want to believe but there is fact and fiction. 

Here are a few more common things that do more harm than good and you should not do!

  • Oil on your hair, leaves a film which accelerates heat dehydrating the hair causing damage like split ends, color fading and possible scalp bacteria hence actually could lead to hair loss!
  • Onion juice, no seriously apart from the smell ( which FYI is disgusting for days! ) doesn’t nothing for your hair, the thought that the juice somehow penetrates into the skin through to to the root of the hair and does anything is beyond realistic! 
  • Rubbing ginger on your scalp, again 🤐 it creates warmth on your scalp which makes you think it’s beneficial but nothing
  • Fish oil………creates and breeds bacteria and is possibly the most anti social DIY Ever heard of
  • Egg 🍳- hair outside your scalp is dead keratin. Fry it put it in between two pieces of hair and eat it!
  • Beer 🍻 the yeast in beer sweeps the cuticle making it appear shinny hence you think it help. Yeast is bacteria, bacteria breeds infection so drink it.  

Hope that helps in understanding the facts when it comes to Summer hair care!

Start summer with a trim, remove the split ends, rehydrate using a linseed treatment ( which your hair will love! ) and repeat process every 6-8 weeks. 

Why we don’t want your coconuts

We are writing this, because everyone who knows hair will tell you it’s wrong, every ones who thinks they know hair will tell you it’s great!


Coconut oil is an oil, oil and water don’t mix right? Right

Hair is dead keratin? Right 

If hair is dead and growing hair is inside our body, oil doesn’t soak in does it? No it doesn’t 

The hair is made up of three layers? True

Oil residue is left every time you apply oil in the cuticle layer even if you wash it several times? Correct

Putting oil on your hair will make it shinny? True

Putting oil on your hair will 

  • Dehydrate the internal structure 
  • Coat the hair and cause internal moisture to evaporate 
  • Make your hair feel like concrete
  • Leave your hair limp
  • Possibly cause hair loss due to change of ph level of your scalp

All the above are facts! So before putting any oil on your hair or head think twice if you want healthy hair. If it’s a condition problem then use alternatives like linseed treatment by Alfa Parf or if your hair is that damaged Olaplex. 

Oil is for cooking not for your hair!
