The Best Hair Beauty Habits You Need To Embrace To Wake Up With Perfect Hair

The Best Hair Beauty Habits You Need To Embrace To Wake Up With Perfect Hair

What makes you leave your home late every day? Your long makeup routine, your endless trial-and-error outfit search, or your daunting hair styling routine? If your answer is the latter, this article is for you!

If your hair needs extensive styling in the morning, you need to review your bedtime routine, which is probably the reason you wake up with frizzy, hard-to-tame hair in the morning. Despite general misconceptions, the evening is the perfect time to soak in conditioner on your hair and leave all the vitamins to act until the morning. There is a lot to hair care in the evening, so ditch the morning styling and change the way your hair looks. Here is how to get your hair to look perfect from the first minute you wake up, by embracing before-bed hair beauty routines.

1. Apply your hair treatment in the evening

The best way to moisturize your hair and avoid a bad hair day is to condition it and apply hair treatments on a regular basis. Apply your favorite hair oil or mask on your damaged hair before going to bed. Then, tie your hair in a braid and wrap it in a scarf and go to sleep. In the morning, avoid your regular hair care shower mistakes and apply the shampoo on your dry, oily hair first, then jump in the shower.

2. Silky sleeping habits

If you want to have beautiful, healthy hair, you need to switch your pillowcase with a silk pillowcase. This is because hair becomes trapped in other materials, making it prone to breakage as you turn around in your sleep. Silk, on the other hand, allows your hair to slide over it. If you are not comfortable with the thought of sleeping on silk, just wrap your hair in a silk scarf, which will protect it and will keep any vitamin masks on the hair, preventing them from soaking into your pillowcase.

3. No metal on your hair

Most people with long hair tie it for the night to avoid dealing with knots in the morning. This is a good practice, but make sure you don’t use a hair tie with metal, as it can break your strands. Instead, use a fabric tie and make a loose bun or a loose braid for the night to protect your hair.

4. Tight is not right

While securing your hair somehow is a good idea, you need to make sure you’re not tying it up too tight. The old saying that a tight ponytail will make you lose hair by thinning and will make your hairline move backward is true, so each time you prepare for sleep, tie your hair loosely. If it can stay put and it’s comfortable enough to sleep with, you’ve got it right.

5. Showering in the evening and wet hair

The best time to wash your hair is the evening, when you can allow it to dry naturally without using heat. However, make sure you don’t go to bed with wet hair, as this is a major mistake. Wet hair is prone to overstretching and breaking, which is also why you should never brush your hair when it’s still wet. Speaking of wet hair, the common towel wrap is also a huge mistake, as it leads to the same unfortunate event: breakage! To dry your hair with a towel, just blot out the water from your hair, then leave nature to do the rest.

6. Don’t sleep with the AC on

Sleeping in a dry room is going to dry your skin as well as your hair, so it’s better to turn off the air conditioner before you go to sleep. This will allow your hair to look shiny in the morning. If needed, you can use a humidifier to provide your mane with the moisture it needs to look good the next day.

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

Being in a hurry all the time drains your energy. Your work and routine life make you feel overwhelmed. Getting caught up in things beyond your control stresses you out…

If you’d like to stay calm and cool in stressful situations, put the following 8 steps into practice:

1. Breathe

The next time you’re faced with a stressful situation that makes you want to hurry, stop what you’re doing for one minute and perform the following steps:

  • Take five deep breaths in and out (your belly should come forward with each inhale).
  • Imagine all that stress leaving your body with each exhale.
  • Smile. Fake it if you have to. It’s pretty hard to stay grumpy with a goofy grin on your face.

Feel free to repeat the above steps every few hours at work or home if you need to.

2. Loosen up

After your breathing session, perform a quick body scan to identify any areas that are tight or tense. Clenched jaw? Rounded shoulders? Anything else that isn’t at ease?

Gently touch or massage any of your body parts that are under tension to encourage total relaxation. It might help to imagine you’re in a place that calms you: a beach, hot tub, or nature trail, for example.

3. Chew slowly

Slow down at the dinner table if you want to learn to be patient and lose weight. Shoveling your food down as fast as you can is a surefire way to eat more than you need to (and find yourself with a bellyache).

Be a mindful eater who pays attention to the taste, texture, and aroma of every dish. Chew slowly while you try to guess all of the ingredients that were used to prepare your dish.

Chewing slowly will also reduce those dreadful late-night cravings that sneak up on you after work.

4. Let go

Cliche as it sounds, it’s very effective.

The thing that seems like the end of the world right now?

It’s not. Promise.

Stressing and worrying about the situation you’re in won’t do any good because you’re already in it, so just let it go.

Letting go isn’t easy, so here’s a guide to help you:

21 Things To Do When You Find It Hard To Let Go

5. Enjoy the journey

Focusing on the end result can quickly become exhausting. Chasing a bold, audacious goal that’s going to require a lot of time and patience? Split it into several mini-goals so you’ll have several causes for celebration.

Stop focusing on the negative thoughts. Giving yourself consistent positive feedback will help you grow patience, stay encouraged, and find more joy in the process of achieving your goals.

6. Look at the big picture

The next time you find your stress level skyrocketing, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:

Will this matter to me…

  • Next week?
  • Next month?
  • Next year?
  • In 10 years?

Hint: No, it won’t.

I bet most of the stuff that stresses you wouldn’t matter the next week, maybe not even the next day.

Stop agonizing over things you can’t control because you’re only hurting yourself.

7. Stop demanding perfection of yourself

You’re not perfect and that’s okay. Show me a person who claims to be perfect and I’ll show you a dirty liar.

Demanding perfection of yourself (or anybody else) will only stress you out because it just isn’t possible.

8. Practice patience every day

Below are a few easy ways you can practice patience every day, increasing your ability to remain calm and cool in times of stress:

  • The next time you go to the grocery store, get in the longest line.
  • Instead of going through the drive-thru at your bank, go inside.
  • Take a long walk through a secluded park or trail.

Final thoughts

Staying calm in stressful situations is possible, all you need is some daily practice.

Taking deep breaths and eat mindfully are some simple ways to train your brain to be more patient. But changing the way you think of a situation and staying positive are most important in keeping cool whenever you feel overwhelmed and stressful.
