4 Food Families for Phenomenal Hair

4 Food Families for Phenomenal Hair

Creating a healthy lifestyle that is anchored in a balanced diet rich in a variety of whole foods is the most direct way to long, strong shiny hair. Authentically beautiful hair and skin is available to you in the aisles of your local grocery store. I’ve pulled together four beauty foods that will give your body all of the nutrients, vitamins and minerals needed to cultivate healthy hair and scalp.

Leafy green veggies have always been your mom’s favorite…and you never wanted to eat them. Now that you are making your own food choices, you should take a second listen to mom’s advice. Vegetables like spinach, broccoli and kale contain an abundance of Vitamins A & C which are needed to produce the scalp’s natural oils. You can also find a healthy dose of Iron and Calcium to boot.

GO GREEN!

Hair is made up mostly of protein so if you really want a long, thick, healthy hair your diet should ensure the adequate amount of protein is being consumed. Soy, tofu, chicken, beef and pork, nuts and seeds all provide reliable sources of protein. Try to stick to grilled and baked meats…your best hair life starts with your health.

TEAM PROTEIN

Sure you’ve heard about miracle hair and nail vitamins that tout inches of growth almost overnight. Authentic beauties should do their very best to ingest their “supplements” the natural way. Loaded with Iron, Zinc and one of the most important building blocks of healthy hair, Biotin, beans really can seem magic.  With so many choices from kidney to black to Lima and every variety in between, adding beans to your weekly menu will give your hair and your dishes a new flair.

BEANS, GLORIOUS BEANS

Good fats are a must in any healthy eating plan. Foods like Walnuts, fish and canola oil are indelibly connected to scalp health.  Because our bodies don’t actually produce Omega-3 Fatty Acids, it is a must that we add it to our bodies through our food. Omega-3 Fatty Acids have been shown to alleviate dry scalp, improve the elasticity of the hair and ultimately assist in growing longer, thicker hair.

OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS

The next time you head to the grocery store, remember to let nature feed your authentic beauty with its cornucopia of vitamins, minerals and nutrients right in your grocer’s aisle!

To your best hair life,

Dr. Watson

Dr. Miracle’s Celebrates A Decade of Beauty

Dr. Miracle’s Celebrates A Decade of Beauty

2014, the year of Authentic Beauties

 

Ten years ago today, the ethnic beauty industry would become witness to a brand that chose to do things decidedly differently.  A brand was born that wanted beauty to start from the inside…a brand that recognized beauty to be a byproduct of healthy hair and scalp not simply a cosmetic facade.  That brand is Dr. Miracle’s and today we thank YOU for being a part of our decade’s long journey.

 

We have always provided our consumer with products that infuse vitamins, oils and nutrients into the scalp and hair follicle to promote healthy growth from root to tip and in our tenth year we promise to give you more of what you have come to love the Dr. Miracle’s brand for.

 

Classic Dr. Miracle's Packaging

 

The launch of our Scalp Care Collection gave our media friends an exciting take on our brand and magazines like Ebony, Essence, Juicy, Hype Hair, Star and Sophisticates Black Hair shared the news.  Retail partnerships with stores like Wal-Mart have given us the opportunity to meet and greet with our Authentic Beauties and hear what they love most about Dr. Miracle’s while sharing with them what is new and what is next.

 

Scalp Care Collection, A Spa for your scalp!

 

From our revamped website that puts the #RX4Style at your fingertips with our diagnostic tool to our monthly homepage model search highlighting one of our incredibly well quaffed users,  we are reaffirming our place as your partner in achieving your best hair life!

 

We believe that there is Authentic Beauty in every woman and we are honored every day as we help women one by one reveal it to themselves and to the world.  On our tenth anniversary, please share the gift of Brooklyn Beauty Discovered with your circle of sisters. This is how we see you each and every day…authentically beautiful! #TheDoctorApproves

 

Xo,

The Dr. Miracle’s Family

4 Fixes for a Dry Scalp

4 Fixes for a Dry Scalp

 

 

It may sound cliché, but it is a fact that “beauty” starts from the inside. Taking care to make healthy decisions creates beauty as a byproduct. A manageable, strong, shiny, full head of hair is no exception to the rule- it starts at the scalp.

Dry scalp is the enemy of beautiful hair but creating a fertile environment for healthy hair growth can be achieved by incorporating a few small changes into your Healthy Hair #TreatMEntPlan.

 

Tip #1: Water Works: The basis to healthy skin and scalp is water. Drinking 64 ounces of water a day is a must not just for scalp and skin but for all functions of the body. It helps to oxygenate cells, regulate temperature and keep your largest organ –the skin- moisturized from the inside out.

 

Tip #2: Boost Your “B”: Vitamin B6 also known as “the beauty vitamin” is a vital partner in the quest for your best hair life. The vitamin provides the body with collagen, antioxidants and oils that directly affect the health of hair and skin. Helping to balance hormones, boost the immune system and prevent skin disorders such as eczema and psoriasis, B6 is an obvious ally. Try foods rich in protein such as poultry, fish and eggs to increase your B6 intake naturally.

 

Tip #3: Condition for a Cause: When scalp doesn’t produce the proper amount of sebum (the natural oils of the scalp), a weekly deep conditioning treatment that contain natural oils can assist in replenishing the missing oils. *RX4Style: Dr. Miracle’s Double Deep Moisturizing Masque is a weekly intensive treatment blended with Olive, Sunflower and Jojoba Oils to infuse oils into the scalp and help hair’s manageability and elasticit

Tip #4: Stimulate Your Scalp: Few things get the blood flowing like a massage. The manual stimulation of the scalp can help to create a fertile ground for healthy hair growth by awakening blood cells to increase its activity just beneath the surface. *RX4Style: Adding Dr. Miracle’s Scalp Care Herbal Tonic to your weekly scalp massage adds to the effectiveness. Blended with grapefruit and oil leaf extracts, the tonic conditions and moisturizes scalp and hair increasing elasticity and shine.

Lupita’s Magical Ride

Lupita-Nyongo-Light-Blue-Prada-Dress-Oscars-2014
Lupita’s Magical Ride

Can we talk about how we're STILL crushing on Lupita? Award season might be over and we may not have any more red carpet moments to look forward to for a while but this stunner literally cemented her status as THE girl of the moment each time she showed up.

That skin. The style. That hair! Everything -  we couldn't take our eyes of her! Lupita exudes a kind of confidence that is not only amazing to take in but infectious. There's nothing more beautiful than a woman who owns the uniqueness that makes her stand out. With so many images of long locks, it's refreshing to see a woman not only embrace her natural hair but wear it in a manner that debunks the notion of needing long hair to be beautiful. And she wore it in so many different ways!

 

We love the versatility she displayed with each appearance, not being afraid to play with texture, length and accessories. Take notes, ladies - short hair can be versatile regardless of the length! To maintain healthy locks at Lupita's length, incorporate any of Dr. Miracle's conditioning options into your hair care routine including the Boosting & Defining Leave-in Conditioner which leaves hair nourished and soft.

P.S. Were we the only ones with fingers crossed at every award show for this to be real?!

Spread Love

Spread Love

It’s Valentine’s Day and most of the country is covered in snow and ice. Although some of your plans for today may have been derailed, there are still creative ways to have fun with your loved one if you're stuck at home.

Relieve the cabin fever anxiety by dressing sexy for your man in some lingerie or one of his t-shirt, add a red lip, and light some candles to set the mood. Turn up heat in the kitchen by cooking a meal with your mate. There’s nothing sexier than spending quality time cooking and sipping wine.

For an easy and effortless look, try Dr. Miracle's Curl Care Kit to  rejuvenate and softly style bedroom hair inspired by Eva Pigford’s curly cut. Try Ciara's bob for a sultry and sexy style that our man will enjoy. Add a touch of Dr. Miracle's Daily Moisturizing Lotion for shine and maintenance just in case your hair gets messed up! ;)

For our single ladies, remember that Valentine’s Day is about love, period. Instead of throwing a pity party by yourself or with your girlfriends (those V Day girls dinners are a bit depressing….), spread love to others in need by volunteering at the local animal shelter, feeding the homeless, or making hand-crafted/personalized gifts for your friends.

If you do feel like trying something daring that showcases the love you have for yourself,  visit your stylist &  let them give you that Rihanna-inspired pixie cut you’ve been eyeing, or simply start reading a steamy book you’ve been meaning to get around to for months. If all else false you can always make it a Bedroom Kandi kind of night!

How will you be spending your Valentine's Day?

Throwback Thursday Hair Inspiration

Throwback Thursday Hair Inspiration

So we all love to reminisce on and still listen to the music of the 80s and 90s, that golden era of hip hop and R&B. What’s most memorable to us at The Cut Life are the amazing hairstyles from that time that have resurfaced in the new millennium.

Who can forget the girls from TOTAL with Keisha's short pixie cut or BOMB finger waves! The pixie has made a huge comeback with our favorite artists from Rihanna to Jennifer Hudson and Fantasia rocking versions of this look. To maintain the sleek pixie as described above, try Dr. Miracle’s Edge Holding Gel to keep fly-away hairs in check!

The bob is currently on trend with a host of celebrities sporting the look including Beyonce, Ashanti, Brandy and "Sister, Sister" star, Tamera Mowry-Housley. We couldn’t help but think of 90s R&B group Changing Faces, a female duo that rocked bobs for the majority of their singing career while crooning hits like G.H.E.T.T.O.U.T! We can throw it back even further to Salt N Pepa's asymmetrical bobs now updated as an inverted bob seen on everyday women from NYC to Atlanta.

Bobs are all about bounce &  perfectly precise ends. Dr. Miracle’s Acai Thermal Protection Styler will protect the ends from the heat of the flat iron, and the Dr. Miracle's Oil Sheen Spray will provide a healthy shine that won’t weigh your bob down!

What's your favorite throwback hairstyle?

My Dr. Miracle Makeover

My Dr. Miracle Makeover

Hey #AuthenticBeauties!!!!

Just so you know, being a publicist is a juggling act. Ensuring that brand information is properly transmitted to both the press and consumer with exacting distinctiveness, cultivating spokespersons and planning events that offer a full brand experience all while keeping the consumer need top of mind can be a bit overwhelming sometimes. But as all #AuthenticBeauties know, anything worth having is worth working for.

In this case, the amazing perks that come with the title of PR Director for one of the top ethnic hair care companies on the market make the hard work even more rewarding. A few weeks ago, Dr. Miracles partnered with iOne and HelloBeautiful.com to present the final Interludes event of 2013 featuring Toni Braxton and Babyface.

Before the big concert, I had the opportunity to visit our lead healthy hair care specialist, Craig Carter at the Carlos Lobos Salon in midtown Manhattan. I've had the pleasure of watching him transform women around the country during the Dr. Miracle's RX4Style lounges and was eve so excited for him to 'lay hands' on my hair for the first time.

After a year of growing my hair with the help of Dr. Miracle's relaxers and maintenance products, it was out of control...healthy and shiny, but no shape or real definition to speak of. I took a deep breath, trolled the Internet and bravely found a haircut that I thought fit my personality, face shape and daily life. I was so excited in fact that I took photos and am sharing them with you!

The Before

The Wash

Here come the scissors! (YIKES!)

Yeah...more scissors! LOL!

The unveiling!

I fell in love with this cut that I affectionately refer to as "The Crissy" but I think I'm going for 'The Melinda' this weekend...well, maybe! Stay tuned #AuthenticBeauties! #TheDoctorApproves

We'd love to see your new style before and afters! Share them with us by tagging @DrMiracles and hash tagging #AuthenticMakeover on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook!
