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.

10 Reasons Why New Year’s Resolutions Fail

10 Reasons Why New Year’s Resolutions Fail

A new year beautifully symbolizes a new chapter opening in the book that is your life. But while so many people like you aspire to achieve ambitious goals, only 12% of you will ever experience the taste of victory. Sound bad? It is. 156 million people (that’s 156,000,000) will probably give up on their resolution before you can say “confetti.” Keep on reading to learn why New Year’s resolutions fail (and how to succeed).

Note: Since losing weight is the most common New Year’s resolution, I chose to focus on weight loss (but these principles can be applied to just about any goal you think of — make it work for you!).

1. You’re treating a marathon like a sprint.

Slow and steady habit change might not be sexy, but it’s a lot more effective than the “I want it ALL and I want it NOW!” mentality. Small changes stick better because they aren’t intimidating (if you do it right, you’ll barely even notice them!).

If you have a lot of bad habits today, the last thing you need to do is remodel your entire life overnight. Want to lose weight? Stop it with the crash diets and excessive exercise plans. Instead of following a super restrictive plan that bans anything fun, add one positive habit per week. For example, you could start with something easy like drinking more water during your first week. The following week, you could move on to eating 3 fruits and veggies every day. And the next week, you could aim to eat a fistful of protein at every meal.

2. You put the cart before the horse.

“Supplementing” a crappy diet is stupid, so don’t even think about it. Focus on the actions that produce the overwhelming amount of results. If it’s not important, don’t worry about it.

3. You don’t believe in yourself.

A failure to act can cripple you before you leave the starting line. If you’ve tried (and failed) to set a New Year’s resolution (or several) in the past, I know it might be hard to believe in yourself. Doubt is a nagging voice in your head that will resist personal growth with every ounce of its being. The only way to defeat doubt is to believe in yourself. Who cares if you’ve failed a time or two? This year, you can try again (but better this time).

4. Too much thinking, not enough doing.

The best self-help book in the world can’t save you if you fail to take action. Yes, seek inspiration and knowledge, but only as much as you can realistically apply to your life. If you can put just one thing you learn from every book or article you read into practice, you’ll be on the fast track to success.

5. You’re in too much of a hurry.

If it was quick-and-easy, everybody would do it, so it’s in your best interest to exercise your patience muscles.

6. You don’t enjoy the process.

Is it any wonder people struggle with their weight when they see eating as a chore and exercise as a dreadful bore? The best fitness plan is one that causes the least interruption to your daily life. The goal isn’t to add stress to your life, but rather to remove it.

The best of us couldn’t bring ourselves to do something we hate consistently, so make getting in shape fun, however you’ve gotta do it. That could be participating in a sport you love, exercising with a good friend or two, joining a group exercise class so you can meet new people, or giving yourself one “free day” per week where you forget about your training plan and exercise in any way you please.

7. You’re trying too hard.

Unless you want to experience some nasty cravings, don’t deprive your body of pleasure. The more you tell yourself you can’t have a food, the more you’re going to want it. As long as you’re making positive choices 80-90% of the time, don’t sweat the occasional indulgence.

8. You don’t track your progress.

Keeping a written record of your training progress will help you sustain an “I CAN do this” attitude. All you need is a notebook and a pen. For every workout, record what exercises you do, the number of repetitions performed, and how much weight you used if applicable. Your goal? Do better next time. Improving your best performance on a regular basis offers positive feedback that will encourage you to keep going.

9. You have no social support.

It can be hard to stay motivated when you feel alone. The good news? You’re not alone: far from it. Post a status on Facebook asking your friends if anybody would like to be your gym or accountability buddy. If you know a co-worker who shares your goal, try to coordinate your lunch time and go out together so you’ll be more likely to make positive decisions. Join a support group of like-minded folks on Facebook, LinkedIn, or elsewhere on the internet. Strength in numbers is powerful, so use it to your advantage.

10. You know your what but not your why.

The biggest reason why most New Year’s resolutions fail: you know what you want but you not why you want it.

Yes: you want to get fit, lose weight, or be healthy… but why is your goal important to you? For example:

Do you want to be fit so you can be a positive example that your children can admire and look up to?

Do you want to lose fat so you’ll feel more confident and sexy in your body than ever before?

Do you want to be healthy so you’ll have increased clarity, energy, and focus that would carry over into every single aspect of your life?

Whether you’re getting in shape because you want to live longer, be a good example, boost your energy, feel confident, have an excuse to buy hot new clothes, or increase your likelihood of getting laid (hey, I’m not here to judge) is up to you. Forget about any preconceived notions and be true to yourself.

  • The more specific you can make your goal,
  • The more vivid it will be in your imagination,
  • The more encouraged you’ll be,
  • The more likely it is you will succeed (because yes, you CAN do this!).

I hope this guide to why New Year’s resolutions fail helps you achieve your goals this year. If you found this helpful, please pass it along to some friends so they can be successful just like you. What do you hope to accomplish next year?
