Beauty Questions

Question 1 – I heard that if you apply henna (just henna) on your hair, you can’t apply regular color on the hair (the one that uses peroxide), or vice versa. I would like to know if this is true, and if so the scientific explanation behind it. I do love the show and I would really appreciate if you could answer my question

Question 2 – Monica says she can’t find a true red lipstick. I try one on and it reads pink, brown or orange. I heard they outlawed an ingredient to make it red. Did this really happen? Can you get a red lipstick?

Question 3 – Alicia from Instagrama huge fan of the podcast, didn’t know who to rant to, so she contacted us. Alicia says, “This is the most outrageous blog post I have ever read concerning sun protection. Where is she getting these claims!? The headline: ‘Is your sunscreen doing more harm than good? Probably.’”

Source of the outrage

Question 4 – Is hygral fatigue a real thing? You shouldn’t let hair stay wet too long. Is this true?

    Sometimes I use regular shampoo as a leave-in conditioner, and it gives my hair a level of wave that I like; I’m assuming this is because of humectants? I think I saw something on your blog about the core proteins in your hair swelling diferentially, which is what causes frizziness for straight hair in humidity? After reading about hygral fatigue, I’m wondering if using this to add wave to my hair can be damaging? I’m also wondering about how to maximize this effect? Do I need to worry about the humidity of the environment I’m in after my hair dries? (If it dries wavy will it stay wavy?) And one last thing, my hair was wavier when I was younger; what causes hair texture to change as you age?

    • Perry Romanowski January 13, 2020, 5:38 pm

      I don’t think using regular shampoo as a leave-in product is a good idea. That will likely lead to scalp irritation.

        *regular conditioner, that was a typo!
