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.

10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

A honeymoon is important.  The wedding is over.  The months, or even years, of stress and planning are finally over.  It’s time for the two of you to relax, settle in, and start enjoying your time together as you embark on your first journey as a family.

To make the most of this time for the least amount of money, it’s important to focus on what you want out of a honeymoon.  This isn’t your typical list of touristy honeymoon locations everyone goes to.  Rather, it’s a list of cheap honeymoon experiences a couple can enjoy together, regardless of where it’s at.

1. Camping

A week long camping trip is a fantastic way to see how you mesh together as a couple.  You’re put in a low impact “survival” situation where it’s just the 2 of you and nature.  You have a chance to see how your new spouse handles themselves when left with the basics of life.  There are amazing national parks all over the United States where you can camp for a week for $20-30, disconnect from technology, and enjoy some of the natural wonders our nation has to offer.

2. Staycation

You don’t have to go anywhere for a honeymoon.  In fact, the tradition of taking a honeymoon vacation is a relatively new one.  Prior to the 19th century, a honeymoon involved staying home together for a month to get to know each other physically.  Think of how blissful it could be to take a full month off work, disconnect from the outside world, and focus entirely on projects together.  You may not be wowing your friends and family with pictures of some exotic location, but they’ll be envious of your escape from the rat race nonetheless.

3. Island Getaway

People tend to overspend on their honeymoon vacations to Hawaii, Tahiti, etc.  Going to these places doesn’t have to be expensive.  You don’t need to stay in a 5 star resort when you’re on a Best Western budget.  You’re there to be in the atmosphere of the island, not a hotel room. Book a cheap flight and sleep in a hotel alternative, on the beach or in your car.  It’s the view in paradise that really matters.

4. Fancy Resort

Book an expensive resort, spa, or retreat in the city you live in.  While this may seem counterintuitive as a cheap destination, when you consider your savings on airfare and other travel costs, you can afford to be treated like royalty within your own city limits.  If you book a honeymoon package, you’ll end up with a lot of free amenities and extra attention.  There’s no need to fly halfway across the world to live the good life.

5. Road Trip

The journey is often more fulfilling than the actual destination.  If you fly out to some exotic locale, you’ll be stuck on a plane for 8-30 hours.  Rent a luxury car, pick a handful of places you each have always wanted to visit, and go on an adventure.  You can keep food costs down by packing your own snacks, but it’s always a good idea to sample the local delicacies wherever you go, even if it’s only a few states over.

6. Charter a Boat

If the ocean is your thing, a week-long cruise can cost you $1500-$3000 per person, depending on the destination.  You also have to factor in travel costs to and from the cruise, alcohol, souvenirs, and on-shore excursions.  You’ll also be surrounded by people.  For the same price (and often much cheaper), you can charter your own boat and enjoy the experience in private.

7. Las Vegas/Atlantic City

If gambling is your thing, these are the places to do it.  Which one you choose depends on your preference, budget, and proximity.  The way to make this vacation cheaper is to gamble smart.  Stay away from low odd tables (i.e craps, roulette) and read up on the MIT blackjack strategies to beat the house.  If you do it right, you can win enough for a free trip (and gain a valuable team skill in the process).

8. Themed Retreats

There are weeklong retreats all over the world where you can fully immerse yourselves as a couple into a hobby you’re both passionate about.  Go on a yoga/meditation retreat, a ranch, a vineyard/farm, a backpacking adventure, treasure hunt, or whatever you’re into.

9. Working Honeymoon

Your honeymoon doesn’t have to be a vacation.  For a truly memorable experience, dedicate a week to a charity or volunteer organization.  You can drive out to a campground to help restore it in the offseason.  Maybe you’ve always wanted to volunteer to help out your local animal shelter, plant trees, help the homeless, etc.  Use the time to do something together as a couple that will fulfill you spiritually while contributing to the community.  Just because you’re on a honeymoon doesn’t mean you can’t be productive.

10. Festivals, Fairs & Special Events

Every city, state, and country has festivals, fairs, and special events.  Find one you’re interested in.  If you time your wedding right, your honeymoon can be a trip to one of these festivals.  Burning Man, SXSW, Bonnaroo, the Renaissance Fair, regional harvest festivals, Mardi Gras, New Years Eve in Times Square, a movie premiere, or whatever you’re into.  If you plan your honeymoon at the right time in the right place, the possibilities are endless.
