How to Fix Dry and Brittle Hair

If you suffer from dry and brittle hair, it is best to avoid hair products with alcohol, silicone, and sulfate as this can make your hair even drier and damage it further. Look instead for hair products with hydrating ingredients such as coconut oil, , shea butter, and argan oil.

Avoid overwashing your hair because this will strip your hair of its natural oils. When you do wash your hair, concentrate the shampoo in your scalp area and make sure to use conditioner near the ends of your hair since this tends to be the area that needs conditioner the most.

When using hair styling tools, it is best to use a heat protecting spray that will protect your hair from damage. You can also try using hair styling tools on medium to low heat. Trim your hair every few months to get rid of split ends that only get worse with time. Finally, using a good hair mask regularly will add moisture and help repair your hair.


Beauty Benefits of Exercise

Exercise can help to regulate the stress hormone, cortisol, which means that exercise may help with acne since cortisol affects breakouts. Cortisol also accelerates aging, which is why it is important to manage stress in general. Cortisol is also associated with weight gain.

Exercising can help with hair growth because it increase blood flow to your scalp, helping to provide nutrients necessary to aid in the development of healthy hair.

Exercise helps to boost circulation, which helps to boost oxygen and nutrients to the skin, giving you a healthier looking glow.

Sweating also helps to clear out pores.

It is important to wear sunscreen if exercising outdoors, or you can just minimize sun exposure all together by exercising in doors.

Kenra Platinum Silkening Mist Review

This is one of my go-to products for hair. I have very dry hair naturally and this helps to add moisture to my hair while making it very shiny. It has almost a five out of five star rating on Ulta, and that is how I feel about this product as well.

The company claims that this is a “weightless mist” that gives an “ultimate shine” and eliminates frizz and flyaways. I believe all those statements to be true, the only statement made that I don’t believe that be true is that it repairs split ends, just because I am not sure that split ends can even be repaired. It doesn’t feel greasy or heavy, which is one of the problems I have with a lot of hair products. I will likely repurchase this product, as well as look at other products from the Kenra line because I liked this product so much. The price is $21.00 for 5.3 ounces and can be found at Ulta.


How to Fix a Receding Hairline with Makeup

My hair is thinner than I want it to be in certain areas. So I just take a matte eyeshadow that is a similar shade to my hair and blend in the area with a makeup brush. There are products on the market that are specifically meant to do the same thing, but haven’t tried them and using an eyeshadow you already have would probably be more convenient.

DIY Lip Plumper and Hair Growth

I made this DIY recipe recently from what I saw on another website. I just mixed warm coconut oil with a lot of cayenne pepper and waited for it to solidify in a jar. Some sites suggest to wait 10 to 15 days, but I used this the next day. I then just put the oil on my scalp 30 minutes before I took a shower, and I put it on my lips twice a day. The cayenne is meant to stimulate hair growth by increasing blood circulation to your scalp and again it makes your lips bigger by increasing circulation to your lips, so the more you do this, the more collagen will be produced in your lips. There is a burning sensation since it is cayenne, but for me it wasn’t bad. I noticed a significant difference in my lips, but am still waiting to see the results for my hair.

What I Use to Get Rid of Dandruff

I personally use apple cider vinegar to get rid of any problems I have with dandruff. Apple cider vinegar is pretty cheap, depending on where you get it; I have gotten apple cider vinegar for as little as 2 dollars. When I am having any issues with dandruff, I first wash my hair with shampoo, then apply a mixture of apple cider vinegar and water to my scalp and finally use conditioner. I have also heard that tea tree oil can be used to get rid of dandruff, but I personally have never tried this. Finally, there are also some shampoos you can buy to help control dandruff.

Is a Silk Pillowcase Worth the Money?

For me I think it was sort of worth the money. I am not sure it did a lot for my skin, but I think it did help my hair some. I naturally have very curly hair that gets really dry and knotty. I noticed after using this pillowcase for a while that the condition of my hair became better; it became smoother and more glossy-like, but my hair problems definitely did not fully go away. The main reason I don’t regret buying this is because is feels really awesome to sleep on a silk pillow and not a cotton one. The price of the pillowcase was about $60. I personally think you are better off, if you have the money, to go to a hairstylist and get a hair treatment if you are having some kind of hair problem.
