10 Things Women With Beautiful Hair Don’t Do

10 Things Women With Beautiful Hair Don’t Do

Do you want to have long, healthy hair? Many people spend a lot of money trying to make their hair healthy and long, but if they treat their hair badly they often see no results. Check out these 10 that things women with beautiful hair don’t do.

1. They Don’t Wash Their Hair Every Day

Many women with beautiful hair only wash their hair once or twice a week, and this helps them to maintain their beautiful hair. Frequent washing will strip your hair of its natural oils, and these natural oils can actually help to style your hair. Avoid dry shampoo between washes, too, as it can be very drying.

2. They Don’t Choose A Cheap Haircut

Instead of choosing the cheaper hairdresser, splash out and treat yourself. If you have a great hairstyle, you can leave your hair to air-dry and use less styling products, which will help to keep your hair healthy and shiny. When you get a haircut, consider styling, up-dos, and the weather to make sure you end up with a hairstyle you’re happy with.

3. They Don’t Just Use Hair Conditioner – They Also Use Steam

Hair conditioner will moisturize and protect your hair, but using steam as well will improve the effects of the conditioner. After you have put conditioner on your hair in the shower, put on a shower cap or cling film to keep the heat in. This will help you to lock in extra moisture.

4. They Don’t Ignore Their Scalp

Your hair grows out of your scalp, so it is important to keep your scalp just as healthy as your hair if you want to have beautiful hair. Scalp massages will help to promote hair growth while exfoliating your scalp.

5. They Don’t Blow Dry Their Hair Every Day

Women with long, healthy hair rarely use heat on their hair – ideally they never do.  Hair dryers will dry out your hair, so try to only use them occasionally, or cut down your use to give your hair a break.

6. They Don’t Ignore Their Ends

The ends of your hair are older and dryer than the roots of your hair, so it is important to give the ends some extra attention. Coconut oil has very small particles, so it is a great moisturizer as it can actually penetrate your hair follicles and improve the condition of your hair.

7. They Don’t Neglect Brushing Their Hair

Brushing your hair gets rid of dead hair while stimulating your scalp. Look after your hair by regularly brushing it with a wide-tooth comb, starting from the ends to prevent damage.

8. They Sleep On Hair-Friendly Pillows

The towels and pillows you use actually have a big impact on your hair, so it is important to choose your towels and pillows wisely. Silk pillows are better for your hair as they tend to draw moisture into your hair.

9. They Don’t Style Their Hair All At Once

If you want to create the perfect, beautiful up-do, breaking your hair into sections will make the task easier and it will make the style look more polished. Sectioning off parts of your hair while styling is also useful if you’re straightening or curling your hair.

10. They Don’t Forget To Moisturise Their Hair

There are leave-in conditioners, overnight masks, oils, and moisturizing creams that can help to keep your hair in great condition all of the time. The right food will help moisturize your hair too — try out fish, fresh vegetables, avocados and coconut oil.

How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

1. Work on the small tasks.

When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

2. Take a break from your work desk.

Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

3. Upgrade yourself

Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

4. Talk to a friend.

Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

6. Paint a vision to work towards.

If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

7. Read a book (or blog).

The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

8. Have a quick nap.

If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

9. Remember why you are doing this.

Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

10. Find some competition.

Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

11. Go exercise.

Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

Here’re 15 Tips to Restart the Exercise Habit (and How to Keep It).

12. Take a good break.

Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
