We've all heard that early prevention for anything is more important than trying to repair damage later in life. Teeth, skin, nails and hair (those really visible features) really need extra care if we want to maintain good looks through the ages. And don't start thinking " it won't happen to me". Chances are, if you don't take care of your teeth now, they'll fall out later. Same with your hair. Get smart!
According to Dr. Zoe Draelos, MD FAAD, of American Academy of Dermatology,"It's important to understand that hair is nonliving and cannot be repaired once it is injured." As we get older, hair growth slows down and the cosmetic beauty of our hair decreases. Hair loss that occurs from continual hair breakage over the years is a serious cosmetic concern for many women, so the key is to prevent this damage by stopping the cycle of over-processing and over-grooming our hair and selecting hair care products with proven hair-health benefits."
What to avoid in your 20's:
Be aware. Be smart. Be beautiful.
Uugghh! It's that summer hair thing again. Whether it's the sweltering, sizzling sun rays or the thicker-than-butter humidity, my hair goes through an unrestful, unruly identity crisis during the summer months. So, how do you look chic and protect your strands from excessive heat damage at the same time
Washing, drying and 95+ pounding hot, "Color Purple" heat just don't make for a healthy combination. Alas....here are a couple of quick and easy tips for protecting and promoting healthier summer hair.
Top 5 Tips for Healthy Summer Hair
It's July 4th. For most of us, it's a day of barbques, too much food, gut-wrenching laughter, free-flyin' flags and honorable hangovers. Today, however should also be a day of freedom...for each of us. (Seems that I 'm still stuck in a reflective writing mode these days).
For today... I'll exercise my independence and be released from ridiculous resentments, decade old & last week's source of anger and the forever critical "haters club membership roster".
I'm free to love who I am. Free to laugh at the jokes you don't think are funny. Free to be creative like I've never been before. Free to test and challenge my curiosity. Free to gently tell what's-his-name how I really feel about him. Free to make a dish for the cookout that pleases no one but me. Free to reach out and hug the most unlikely person. Free to mix up the sequence of my routines. Free to apologize to someone I may have offended. Free to do whatever the heck I want to.
There. I said it. Happy 4th to you too.
