Winter Care for Thirsty Hair

Sunday, December 11th, 2016


It’s finally December! That means our holiday decorations are coming out, as well as our winter hair care essentials. This year, we’ve revamped our regimen to include some of our lovely, hydrating, sulfate-free Remy Care™ products—and we have to say, our hair has never looked better, despite the weather! Here’s what we’re using, and how:

KeraExtend™ Mask
Masks are the holy grail of winter hair care, as they provide much needed moisture to dried-out locks. But our KeraExtend™ Mask goes a step further. In addition to its hydrating properties, the KeraExtend™ Mask restores elasticity to the hair with plenty of infused keratin proteins, so your hair will be both smooth and bouncy!

To use: After rinsing Donna Bella KeraExtend™ Shampoo from hair, squeeze all excess moisture using towel, then comb liberal amount of KeraExtend™ Mask through hair evenly, focusing on mid-shaft to ends. Gather hair in shower cap or hair claw and leave in for up to 5 minutes. Next, rinse hair thoroughly and style as usual, applying KeraExtend™ Serum if desired.

KeraExtend™ Serum
Like the KeraExtend™ Mask, our KeraExtend™ Serum is formulated with keratin proteins. In the serum, however, these proteins combine with the other ingredients to soften and add shine to the hair. The effect is almost instantaneous, as the serum coats the strand and seals the cuticle for a beautiful, glossy look in seconds!

To use: Apply KeraExtend™ Serum onto slightly damp hair with fingers. Do not apply product onto hair extension bonds or wefts. Spread the Serum onto the bottom half of your hair extensions and work your way downwards, concentrating on tips. Style as usual. Note: can be applied to dry hair in smaller amounts.

Argan Oil
Correct that straw-like, brittle texture that comes along with winter using a pump of Donna Bella’s Argan Oil. This antioxidant-rich oil is a quick-fix for parched hair, adding nutrients and a silky sheen that’ll keep extensions looking dewy throughout the holidays.

To use: Beginning with a small pump, apply evenly to bottom half of extensions, adding more to ends if desired. Do not apply oil to hair extension wefts or bonds. Apply only from mid-length to ends.


As with all of our Remy Care™ products, these moisture-packed favorites are sulfate-free, paraben-free, and color-safe, so you can use them on your own hair and hair extensions without issue.

Or wrap them up as a present; Remy Care™ products make great gifts, too!


Moisturizing your hair

Friday, January 18th, 2013

Just because it’s 10 degrees below zero, that doesn’t mean that fashion and style have to take a back seat.  Your hair can still look beautiful and healthy if you take some extra steps to protect it.

It’s important to keep hair moisturized and healthy. Heaters can dry out the air and leave your hair thirsty and brittle. Use moisturizing shampoos and conditioners that don’t contain sulfates. You can also try coconut and Argan oils to revitalize dry ends. Make sure to keep your hair clean, though. If you try to moisturize dirty hair, the moisture cannot enter the inner cortex of hair–and that’s where it matters most.

Don’t go out into the cold with wet hair. Not only will you be miserably cold, but wet hair can actually freeze and then break. This is not pleasant.

When you’re going out in the cold, try protective hairstyles like braids and buns. These styles are especially great under hats that might otherwise cause matting and tangling.

Hold off on heat tools, and as always, use a heat protectant and the lowest heat setting possible when styling.

What you put into your body can help your hair stay moisturized, too. Eat foods with lots of healthy fat such as avocados, salmon, and olive oil. Most of all–drink lots of water! Your skin will thank you too!

As you’re hitting the slopes and drinking hot cocoa, your hair doesn’t have to be suffer. Stay warm!
