Blend Away Grey

Starting to see more salt than pepper in your hair? The Barbershop at Spa La Posada offers its silver-haired customers a new service – Grey Blending.

If you’re worried that dying your gray hair away is going to look too drastic, no need to worry. Grey blending is a demi permanent hair color, which is made to brighten dullness and blend into your natural shade. The demi permanent will stain the grey, blending to your natural hair color.

As your hair grows the Grey Blending fades naturally without the unwanted red and gold tones that happen from regular dye. You can always come back to The Barbershop and touch up those salty strands that happen as growth continues.

Grey Blending will help you look how you feel!



The 4 Rules to Grow and Train Your Beard

Tips for Growing a Beard

A beard is a sign of distinction that can accentuate your masculine facial features and make you stand out. Also, a properly trained beard can be a chick magnet. According to a recent survey by the Journal of Evolution and Human Behavior, women rated men with beards as significantly more attractive than clean shaven men.

However, growing a beard is actually a science. Not all men have the genes required to grow a beard. If you are one of the lucky guys, follow these four simple rules to properly grow and tame your beard:

  1. Maintain proper nutrition: believe it or not, what you eat affects the quality and thickness of your beard. If you want your beard to be an abundant one, make sure you eat the right stuff. You will need:
    • Vitamin A to keep hair follicles hydrated (eggs, cheese, liver, carrots)
    • Vitamin C to keep your skin healthy (orange juice, potatoes, tomatoes)
    • Vitamin E to help with blood flow (nuts and beans)
    • Folic acid to promote thicker hair (whole grains, peas, nuts)
  2. Exercise to increase testosterone: basically testosterone regulates facial hair growth (see article). Any activities that naturally boost testosterone production can impact the growth of your beard. Weightlifting, hiking, and interval training significantly boost testosterone production. Even low intensity training -like power walking- can boost your testosterone levels.
  3. Let it grow: for a few weeks (or days if you have that kind of genes), simply let your beard grow. DO NOT TOUCH IT. Just let it be. It might look uneven and terrible at first. You might be tempted to shave it all together. Resist the temptation, it will be worth it.
  4. Domesticate your wild beard: Once your beard is at a certain length, make sure to tame it by trimming wild hair and using a natural beard conditioning product. A professional barber can help you even out your beard and give it the right shape based on your facial structure.

At The Barbershop at Spa La Posada we have a unique product to help you train even the wildest beard. Delicious Beard Balm has a unique mixture of natural oils that help you keep your beard hydrated and properly conditioned. It contains castor oil (to thicken the hair), coconut oil (to promote growth), beeswax (seals moisture and nutrients), sweet almond oil (boost shine), and grapeseed oil (to condition hair follicles for even growth).
