10 Reasons Every Woman Should Shave Her Head at Least Once

10 Reasons Every Woman Should Shave Her Head at Least Once

I’ll never forget the day I buzzed the hair off my head for the first time; the excitement of watching my hair fall to the floor and then, finally, the sound of the clippers buzzing away what was left in neat little rows. I kept my head buzzed for years, alternating it between a cute bob, then shaving the back of my head into what’s known as a chelsea. Finally, after growing it out for a few months I got the urge to just take it all off and I did.

I think every woman has thought of shaving their hair off at least once in their life. I know that when I went around bald and proud, women of every age and style would come up to me to admire and compliment not only my bold hairstyle but my bravery. When you have no hair on your head, there’s nothing to hide behind – your entire face is out in the open – and there’s something about that that just made me feel good.

There are a lot of different reasons why every woman should shave her head at least once.

Maintenance

One of the most obvious benefits of having no hair is how easy it is! The time it takes for you to get ready in the morning will most likely be cut in half because you won’t have to style your hair. Of course, you can still dress up your look with a cute headband, hat or scarf!

Cost

As all of us women know, having hair can be expensive! From regular trips to the salon, to the price of products we use, the cost really adds up. If you have a shaved head though, you don’t need to spend any money on it.

Donation

There are a lot of kind, generous people out there you grow their hair out regularly to get it snipped off and donate it to be made into wigs. Of course you don’t have to cut it all off to donate, but the more hair, the longer the wig, so why not try it?

Raise Money

Then there are people who buzz their heads as a way to raise money for charity. You go around collecting donations leading up to the day you shave your head, and then give that money to a charity, usually for cancer.

Awareness

Donating your hair and raising money are both awesome ways to help people with cancer, but sometimes the simple act of raising awareness can have a huge impact. A lot of people shave their heads when someone close to them is going through chemotherapy. Even if you don’t know anyone personally, the act of doing it to spark conversation and awareness around cancer is a noble one.

Healthy Hair

Of course, there are some people who simply need a fresh start of their own when it comes to their hair. After years of dying, straightening, curling and crimping, hair gets pretty damaged. Sometimes irreparably so. Shaving it off can be the perfect way to get back to healthy hair.

Something New

A shaved head can definitely be a new hairdo for a lot of women. Even as it begins to grow out you can try a multitude of hairstyles from a cute pixie, to a feisty bob and eventually long, flowing layers. Shaving your head gives you the opportunity to try out a whole slew of new hairstyles!

Summer Ease

Summer can be the greatest season to many, but it’s also extremely damaging to our hair. Sometimes it’s just plain frustrating! Pools can turn our hair green, the sun leaves it dry, and the humidity makes it frizz. Buzzing your head for the summer will take away the stress of a bad hair day, just remember to wear a cute hat!

Confidence

While a lot of women might think that having a shaved head will leave them feeling self-conscious or ugly, I know from experience that it can actually boost your confidence. It’s all about the attitude and how you present yourself, and having a shaved head might just give you that edge you’ve been needing.

It Feels Awesome!

Finally, having a shaved head feels awesome! It definitely feels freeing, but it also feels awesome, as in literally! You’ll want to rub your fuzzy head all the time!

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

5. Nest Thermostat

This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

6. Smart Lighting

Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

7. Google Chromecast Ultra

Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

8. Canary

This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
