4 Strange Tips to Quickly Improve Your Hair

4 Strange Tips to Quickly Improve Your Hair

There have been a lot of studies that show that hair and hairstyle play a significant part in how attractive to the general public someone is. Because of this, many people spend hours a day trying to get their hair to look just the way that they imagine it looking. For some of these people, even hours a day cannot get them where they want to be. They spend years and years trying to find ways to make their hair look the same way their favorite movie star’s hair looks, but still fail in the end. Hopefully this article can offer some new suggestions. Here are a few ways that can quickly and dramatically improve your hair.

Hormones

This is something that most people are completely unaware of. Hormones significantly affect your overall health, as well as your hair. They are not something you have complete control over, but many people are surprised to find just how much control they do have over hormones.

The two easiest ways to balance your hormones are to eliminate stress and get enough sleep. This is obviously easier written than done, but if hair and overall health really matter to you, then it’s worth a shot. Sleep needs to be given priority over other activities and things that cause stress need to be eliminated or moderated.

Coconut oil

Coconut oil can be the ultimate revitalizer. Many people do not realize just how many benefits it contains, specifically when it comes to hair. If you were to look at the ingredients list to a lot of natural hair products, coconut oil is often one of the first ones.

The problem is that a lot of the hair products that most people use to look good for a single day actually cause a lot of long-term damage to their hair. Sure, that extremely powerful gel might give your hair just the look you wanted for today, but continued use will likely start giving your hair a dead flat look as it struggles to maintain healthy growth.

Fake it

One way people are discovering to give themselves the look they want without damaging their hair is something called hair extensions. These are exactly what they sound like and they actually work to improve the overall look of your hair. You can get real hair from donations, or purchase synthetic extensions that are made to look just like real hair. The perk of extensions is that no damage is done to your hair, and if you do not like the look somewhere down the road you can change it overnight.

While these are not a long-term fix, many people are using them because they like being able to change their hairstyle overnight.

Proper eating

Remember all of those times growing up when you were told to eat your vegetables? Turns out that was real. Eating the right foods actually has a significant impact on how healthy your hair looks. The two biggest vitamins that are contributors to healthy hair growth are Vitamin C and Biotin. As crazy as it sounds, spinach is actually a huge producer of Vitamin C. But don’t worry, if you are not a fan of spinach there are also plenty of citrus fruits that produce nearly the same levels. Something as easy as drinking orange juice with your breakfast in the morning can yield great results.

There are plenty of other ways to dramatically improve your hair, but many are unhealthy in the long run and are expensive to do. These solutions have been proven to work and they are easy to implement. The best part is that they also will provide other benefits to your body and health.

The 10 Essential Habits of Positive People

The 10 Essential Habits of Positive People

Are you waiting for life events to turn out the way you want so that you can feel more positive about your life? Do you find yourself having pre-conditions to your sense of well-being, thinking that certain things must happen for you to be happier? Do you think there is no way that your life stresses can make you anything other than “stressed out” and that other people just don’t understand?  If your answer is “yes” to any of these questions, you might find yourself lingering in the land of negativity for too long!

The following are some tips to keep positive no matter what comes your way. This post will help you stop looking for what psychologists call “positivity” in all the wrong places!  Here are the ten essential habits of positive people.

1. Positive people don’t confuse quitting with letting go.

Instead of hanging on to ideas, beliefs, and even people that are no longer healthy for them, they trust their judgement to let go of negative forces in their lives.  Especially in terms of relationships, they subscribe to The Relationship Prayer which goes:

 I will grant myself the ability to trust the healthy people in my life … 

To set limits with, or let go of, the negative ones … 

And to have the wisdom to know the DIFFERENCE!

 2.  Positive people don’t just have a good day – they make a good day.

Waiting, hoping and wishing seldom have a place in the vocabulary of positive individuals. Rather, they use strong words that are pro-active and not reactive. Passivity leads to a lack of involvement, while positive people get very involved in constructing their lives. They work to make changes to feel better in tough times rather than wish their feelings away.

3. For the positive person, the past stays in the past.

Good and bad memories alike stay where they belong – in the past where they happened. They don’t spend much time pining for the good ol’ days because they are too busy making new memories now. The negative pulls from the past are used not for self-flagellation or unproductive regret, but rather productive regret where they use lessons learned as stepping stones towards a better future.

4. Show me a positive person and I can show you a grateful person.

The most positive people are the most grateful people.  They do not focus on the potholes of their lives.  They focus on the pot of gold that awaits them every day, with new smells, sights, feelings and experiences.  They see life as a treasure chest full of wonder.

5. Rather than being stuck in their limitations, positive people are energized by their possibilities.

Optimistic people focus on what they can do, not what they can’t do.  They are not fooled to think that there is a perfect solution to every problem, and are confident that there are many solutions and possibilities.  They are not afraid to attempt new solutions to old problems, rather than spin their wheels expecting things to be different this time.  They refuse to be like Charlie Brown expecting that this time Lucy will not pull the football from him!

6. Positive people do not let their fears interfere with their lives!

Positive people have observed that those who are defined and pulled back by their fears never really truly live a full life. While proceeding with appropriate caution, they do not let fear keep them from trying new things. They realize that even failures are necessary steps for a successful life. They have confidence that they can get back up when they are knocked down by life events or their own mistakes, due to a strong belief in their personal resilience.

7. Positive people smile a lot!

When you feel positive on the inside it is like you are smiling from within, and these smiles are contagious. Furthermore, the more others are with positive people, the more they tend to smile too! They see the lightness in life, and have a sense of humor even when it is about themselves. Positive people have a high degree of self-respect, but refuse to take themselves too seriously!

8. People who are positive are great communicators.

They realize that assertive, confident communication is the only way to connect with others in everyday life.  They avoid judgmental, angry interchanges, and do not let someone else’s blow up give them a reason to react in kind. Rather, they express themselves with tact and finesse.  They also refuse to be non-assertive and let people push them around. They refuse to own problems that belong to someone else.

9. Positive people realize that if you live long enough, there are times for great pain and sadness.

One of the most common misperceptions about positive people is that to be positive, you must always be happy. This can not be further from the truth. Anyone who has any depth at all is certainly not happy all the time.  Being sad, angry, disappointed are all essential emotions in life. How else would you ever develop empathy for others if you lived a life of denial and shallow emotions? Positive people do not run from the gamut of emotions, and accept that part of the healing process is to allow themselves to experience all types of feelings, not only the happy ones. A positive person always holds the hope that there is light at the end of the darkness.  

10. Positive person are empowered people – they refuse to blame others and are not victims in life.

Positive people seek the help and support of others who are supportive and safe.They limit interactions with those who are toxic in any manner, even if it comes to legal action and physical estrangement such as in the case of abuse. They have identified their own basic human rights, and they respect themselves too much to play the part of a victim. There is no place for holding grudges with a positive mindset. Forgiveness helps positive people become better, not bitter.

How about you?  How many habits of positive people do you personally find in yourself?  If you lack even a few of these 10 essential habits, you might find that the expected treasure at the end of the rainbow was not all that it was cracked up to be. How could it — if you keep on bringing a negative attitude around?

I wish you well in keeping positive, because as we all know, there is certainly nothing positive about being negative!
