Tips to maintain healthy hair

 

hair

Hi ladies, today I will be giving you some TIPS that can help to keep your hair healthy. It is super important to always maintain your hair as healthy as you can. Especially because hair is one of the first things people notice about you when you first meet them. Beautiful hair will leave a good impression, which is why proper hair care is so important. These tips I will give you today will help to avoid extensive damage to your hair. For skin care tips check out my most recent blog Skin care products(:

 

Appropriate Shampoos:

It is important to use the right shampoo for your hair. For example, I have frizzy hair so I always try to find shampoos that will help the frizz. It is also important to avoid shampoos that have silicones, Sulfates, and alcohols.  Sulfates will strip your hair and natural oils, drying out your hair.  Silicones coats your hair and weight it down. Alcohols also weigh down your hair. So remember to look for shampoos and conditioners that say “sulfate and silicone free!”

DON’T wash everyday:

Washing your hair everyday strips out to much of your natural oils. I had a tough time trying to only wash 3 times a week but after I read this article I was committed to getting my shiny hair!

“I used to be the biggest offender of the daily wash. Once I stopped lathering up my strands on the daily, my hair got shinier, my scalp became less dry and my split ends became almost non-existent. “

Check this Link out for more reasons on why washing your hair daily is bad!

tumblr_inline_o1ocq5pWo61tcrsjf_1280.jpg

Be Gentle:

Brushing your hair the “right waybrushing” is also very important. You should find an appropriate hair brush and only brush 2 times a day. And never brush wet hair, this is one of the biggest causes of hair breakage. Excessive brushing can damage your hair! You can read more about how important brushing is here (:

 

NO HEAT:

When possible, avoid using a hair dryer, curling or flat irons.  Styling tools can dry out your hair and fry it. This leads to split ends, breakage, and overall damage.  If you do use heat always, and I mean ALWAYS use heat protectant spray first!

Taking Vitamins:vitamins

It’s always a good idea to take vitamins on a daily. Although many believe that taking vitamins will make your hair grow faster.  Don’t always believe it, it’s not proven that they will increase hear growth. What they will do is they will give your hair the vitamins it need to stay strong and shiny. I used to have really dry dull hair and I’ve been taking these vitamins and the improvement is amazing! Check out my previous blog where I talk about  Hum Nutrition and how it has worked for me!

Remember the way your hair looks is almost always a first impression to people you have just met. So keeping your hair healthy and beautiful. As it will also make you feel more confident about yourself and they way you look! medium         short.jpg   long-hairr

This product is a gel type and i just dab it on my face. So easy to use and it smells great!   “That gal”

BABY SKIN – I have been using this product for a while now and I LOVE IT. It is by maybelline and very affordable. This product is the secrete to pore eraser.

Beautiful mornings everyday

tumblr_lz2z0if8cy1r2zu7yo1_500

As a busy college student with a full time job first thing in the morning it sure is stressful to get out of bed and make sure I look good for the rest of the day. I can only imagine being a mom and having to also get your kids ready for school. Just not having a lot of time for yourself to get ready for the rest of your day. Luckily establishing a morning beauty routine will help you feel more pulled together, and help your mornings run much smoother. Enjoying beautiful mornings every day of the week. I enjoy waking up and knowing I have everything planned. So I can get out of the house right on time to make it to work without a rush. Check out some of these beauty routines that work.

1)The night before the beautiful morning

The more you do the night before the less you have to do in the morning. Simple as that If you know you have a hard time picking out an outfit try figuring out your outfit before you head to bed. That way in the morning when you wake up it’s already there and it’s one less thing you have to worry about. ALSO, check your calendar before going to bed you might have an important appointment that you DO NOT want to rush to. This will help you know what you have to face in the morning and not be completely stressed about it.

2)WATER=ENERY AND BEAUTY

A glass of water before you start your day can immediately make you feel 100 times better. You’ll feel clear-headed and energetic. Being dehydrated can cause you to feel fatigue, and muscle weakness water will give you the energy you need throughout your busy day. Water can also keep your skin looking amazing, keeping it fresh and glowing.

3)Early bird

As much as we all wish for those extra 10 minutes in bed in the morning when the alarm rings, a jump-start to your day can make your mornings so much easier. This can be time for yourself, maybe the only time you will enjoy with some peace and quiet. So use it, this is that extra time to do your hair or your makeup. This even gives you some time to stretch in the morning or meditate.

4)Bright teeth, happy smile

            Brushing your teeth is oh so very important. This not only gets rid of your bad morning breath but also gives you extra confidence. Enough to flash a smile to everyone in the morning. Bright teeth are so important. I use coconut oil to rinse my mouth and they have made my teeth a lot brighter and it makes me so much more confident!

5)FACE

SIMPLE MAKEUP! That is all that you really need, no need to spend extra time on makeup. A tinted moisturized works well as cover up and can applied super-fast. Next,

  • Apply eyeliner, curl lashes and mascara
  • Pretty pink blush
  • Lip color or lip-gloss

And you’re ready for the day!
