7 Hair Health Tips



1. Be Gentle. You shouldn't brush wet hair because it's ultra prone to breakage, use a widetooth comb instead. Also, be careful when brushing out tangles, you're brushing your hair, not raking leaves :)

2. Trim, Trim Trim. It's been said a million times but it's one of the best pieces of advice. Even if you're growing out your hair you have to get it trimmed every few weeks or you'll be left with a lot a split ends instead of lovely flowing locks. 

3. Eat Up. Healthy hair starts from the inside, you have to give your body the right nutrients. Fruits, vegetables, and nuts are great for your hair, and your skin too. 

4. Vitamin Boost. If you really struggle with thin hair or hair that just won't grow, you might want to add a natural supplement to your hair care regime. I have recently started trying ZenWise Labs Hair Growth Supplement and while it's too soon to be able to determine any results personally, a supplement like this is definitely something you might be interested in trying. If you're not big on the fruits and vegetables, you can get some of the vitamins and nutrients your hair is missing this way. 

5. Don't Get Burned. If you are a big fan of using heat tools on your hair it is super important that you use a heat protectant. You're hair will not look it's best if it is fried. The heat protectant spray that I use is TRESemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer. It smells really good and has a  nice spray that finely mists your hair instead of just leaving a bunch of wet spots. I usually spray my hair while it's still wet and comb it through before I dry and curl my hair. 

6. Deeeeep Condition. If your hair is on the dry side a deep conditioner might be what it needs. I'm a competitive swimmer so my hair gets all of the moisture sucked out by chlorine. I'm still able to keep it nice a soft though because I deep condition. There are tons of deep conditioners on the market, I'm a fan of L'Oreal's Total Repair Damage Erasing Balm, but there are lots of DIY options that you can make with stuff in your kitchen. Here's a great article I found that lists a few.

7. Go Heatless. If you're someone who plugs in their flat iron or curling iron every single day, it might be time to learn some new styles that don't use heat. Even if you're using a heat protectant your hair will appreciate a break from being burned into submission on the regular. I have a couple posts here, here, and here of heatless styles. Warning, some of these are super throwback posts ;)

I did recieve the ZenWise supplements for free as compensation for mentioning them in this post but as always, all opinions are 100% my own :) You can check out ZenWise at www.ZenWiseLabs.com and purchase their products on Amazon.

Room Style

I created 3 mood boards of different styles using Modani furniture pieces and home accessories showing how just like the perfect accessories and clothes reflect your personal style, your furniture and home accessories can do the same. The furniture that Modani sells has a very minimalist and modern feel to it, like the white sofa in my Modern Muse board, which is the perfect blank canvas to accessorize and customize to your personal style. Modani has a bunch of great modern sofas and you can check out the whole collection here. If the clothing pieces and accessories on the mood boards remind you of what's in your closet, the home decor pieces on that board might be a good jumping off point for decorating your own rooms.

Which one of these is your favorite? Let me know in the comments section!
Modani simply provided the inspiration for this post, I did not receive any money to promote the company

Recipe: Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Cookies

Today I'm sharing with you one of my favorite recipes, these chocolate peanut butter protein cookies. These are a great snack, especially if you're an athlete because they pack a lot of protein from the peanut butter and the potassium from the bananas helps with muscle cramps. Even if you're not an athlete you can still enjoy these secretly, pretty healthy cookies :)
