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 Tap Into the Power of Positivity

How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

“Happiness cannot come from without, it comes from within.” – Helen Keller

When we are still children, our thoughts seem to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.

Just imagine then how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power! We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities. We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb. We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits. We’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head.

But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.

So…how exactly are we to achieve that?

It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are a few ideas on how you can get started.

1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.

2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty. If you seek it, you will find it.

3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what is really important in life and how many blessings surround you already.

4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking. It is like watching a DVD that saddens and frustrates you, completely pulling you down. Eject that old DVD, throw it away and insert a new, better, more hopeful one instead.

So, instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

And remember: You are (or will become) what you think you are. This is reason enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
