The Best Foods For Beautiful Skin and Hair

Brazilian Gloss - Friday, August 20, 2023

When it comes to healthy skin and hair, it’s not just what we put on our body that counts, its what we put in it.

Radiant skin and hair growth are both dependent on the nutrients we eat.  The healthier we eat the stronger we will be inside and out. 


The best way to get these nutrients is not by supplements but by the real thing.  Eat these things and you should see an improvement in both your hair and skin.

-Low fat yogurt is full of vitamin A and has more calcium than a cup of fat-free milk. 

-Blueberries, Strawberries, and Raspberries are full of antioxidants, the more you eat them the more youthful and healthy your skin will be looking

-Salmon is filled with essential fatty acids that the skin needs. It’ll give you all the Omega 3 and Omega 6 you need to moisturize your skin. Plus it supports scalp health.

-Walnuts and flaxseed are also filled with those essential fatty acids so if salmon isn’t your cup of tea, eat some of these.

-Green Tea is one of the best things for your body. It contains polyphenols which have anti-inflammatory characteristics. It can fight off pimples and free radicals that make our skin age early.

-Water is a given. The more we hydrate our skin the better it will look. Try to drink at least 8 glasses a day.

-Avocados are rich in B-complex vitamins and essential oils that sooth the skin from irritation and redness

-Sweet Potatoes contain large amount of beta-carotene that defend the skin from sun exposure

-Dark Chocolate keeps skin hydrated and can protect the skin from sun damage. But keep in mind that the best chocolate for the skin should have at least 60% cacao

Eat up ladies!

Blake Lively: The Ultimate Hair Idol

Brazilian Gloss - Friday, July 23, 2023

It is only natural for us to admire other people. When it comes to hair, we all have our own preference in who we dub as our “hair idol.” It is not unusual for celebrities to always strut the streets with perfectly polished and frizz free hair and us regular folk, can’t help but feel envious for their flawless locks! One of my personal hair idols is Blake Lively. She has perfected the effortlessly chic look we all desire.  The biggest sin a beauty maven can make is looking as if she tried too hard. You always want to ensure that your locks are tamed and your style is fresh, but you do not want people to look at you and know you copied your look directly from a magazine or that you just got back from an appointment at the salon!

That’s what I adore about Blake Lively. Her hair is always flowing freely, whether it is waved, straight or in a loose bun, it always looks so chic!  My favorite look on her however, undoubtedly, is the braid. She rocks the side braid like no other and it is the perfect summer style to try as well. Especially if you have long luscious hair like her, it is a simple way to get your locks out of your way in the heat while still looking fashionable at the same time. Pair it with some chandelier earrings and maybe an off the shoulder shirt, and you’re good to go!

A Glamorous Get A Way

Brazilian Gloss - Thursday, July 15, 2023

Summer may be half way through but it's not too late to take that much needed vacation time and book your summer trip.  Every beauty maven deserves a little luxury vacation to catch up on some well-deserved R&R. Make sure wherever you take your glamorous self to - it is fitting for what kind of vacation you want! Whether you are looking for just some relaxation or you feel like taking an adventure or just wanting to explore a new culture….. Brazilian Gloss has some tips for you and your next vacation.

If you're looking for an adventure: Brazil provides an action-packed vacation filled with adventure.  You can surf, hike, go rafting, take canopy tours, deep water fish, or go bungee jumping. All of these activities are sure to bring some excitement into your life, especially for those city girls who have been trapped inside the concrete jungle for way too long. This is a chance to finally let your hair down, put on that bikini and let the sunshine be the only flashing light you see. Be sure to pack your Coco de Soleil glossing serum to keep your hair shiny and silky even after a long swim in the ocean.

If you're looking for a culture: Rome is always a great place for those seeking a cultural experience.  It offers historic buildings, museums, and numerous sightseeing opportunities.  Be sure to visit Colosseum, make a wish at the Trevi Fountain, and most importantly indulge in the local food! Also, when you’re done sight-seeing, do some people-watching! Italians have a great sense of fashion and it is not uncommon to see Italian men with hair as long as the women! Not every guy can pull off a ponytail, but if he’s got a sweet accent and a suave personality, then he can rock his locks like there’s no tomorrow.

Before you jetset to these amazing vacation spots, be sure to pack your bags with the essentials: sunglasses, a good book, Ipod and of course your Brazilian Gloss Coco de Soleil are set.

The end of Split Ends!

Brazilian Gloss - Tuesday, June 22, 2023

Split ends are every woman’s nightmare. We’ve all been there…. One day you’re just casually running your fingers through your hair and suddenly you reach the bottom of your locks and a look of disgust and horror spreads across your face…. The dreaded split end syndrome has attacked yet again!

Split ends can be caused by a variety of factors. A few being……

  • Over exposure to sun
  • Excessive shampoo-ing
  • Using a wrong type of comb or brush
  • Too much chemical treatment
  • Heat damage from styling tools

But don’t lose hope! There are also many solutions to combat this notorious hair disease…

  • Trim your hair every 6-8 weeks
  • Protect your hair when heat-styling (Try using leave in conditioners or any other keratin enriched products such as the Brazilian Gloss After Treatment Masque)
  • Avoid brushes with plastic bristles
  • Avoid “cheap” shampoos that contain excess silicon which tends to strip the hair of its natural oils and nutrients

The rule of thumb, when it comes to your hair, is: less is more. Instead of shampooing your hair every day or heat styling every day invest in quality shampoos/conditioners, such as the Coco de Soleil collection, that will keep you hair naturally sleek and healthy!

Getting To The (hair) Root Of It....

Brazilian Gloss - Friday, March 26, 2024

There are many factors that go into the causes of damaged hair. Some things are out of your control, like weather conditions, and others are very well in our control like flat irons and perms. Since our hair is made up of 88% protein, when that protein breaks down, then the hair becomes very susceptible to breakage and becomes course and extremely unmanageable. To ensure your hair stays as beautiful as possible here are 3 easy tips of how to keep healthy hair. 

1) Let your hair dry naturally instead of using the blow dryer. I know we live in a society of instant gratification, but just wake up a few minutes earlier and shower so you can allow some time to let your hair dry out while you get ready in the morning! A lot of people avoid this though because they want to make sure their hair dries nicely and without any kinks. One simple way to let your hair dry naturally without it becoming untamed is to let it dry halfway, twist your hair into a low bun and clip it until the rest dries. Once the rest of the hair is dry and you undo the clip, you will have wonderfully smooth and sleek (and slightly wavy) hair! 

2) Use a wide tooth comb to untangle your hair. Although it may be a habit of yours to brush your hair right when you get of the shower, try to avoid this and simply use your fingers to comb through your hair instead of trying to get every single tangle out.  Hair is most vulnerable to damage when it is wet so at least wait till it’s dry before you comb it. Also, make sure when you do brush your hair that is made of natural fibres.

3) Eat more food with fatty acids! Believe it or not what you eat affects how healthy your hair will be. Fatty acids help keep hair strong and full of protein so be sure to include food that have high quantities of fatty acids into your diet. This is probably the most delicious and fun way you can keep your hair healthy! Essential fatty acids can be found in tuna, salmon and mackerel as well as seeds, nuts, olives and avocados.

Follow these easy 3 steps and you will be well on your way to having beautiful, healthy and glossy hair.
