Hair to Down There & Starlet Strands
I bet avacados are great for hair also.
They totally are as well as for facials but I personally have a tendency to eat them first lol although they are still good for you internally 😉
I had an avacado facial once, it was a very nice experience.
Sounds relaxing was it at a spa or a DIY?
Outside of the usual body parts which guys always notice on women, big bright eyes and beautiful hair are almost noticed as well. There is just something about perfect hair that exudes confidences and a whole new persona from a woman. For me personally, I always that a great hairstyle always catches my attention: long, loose and wavy, that will get to me every time.
Those were some really great hair tips.
Yes, it seems like a new hairdo can make you feel like a new woman! 😉
Wow! Great information on how to get gorgeous beautiful hair 🙂 I’m sure our gurly gurls will love to add that information to their repertoire of beauty regimens they already have in place. A really great supplement if you want to grow your hair quickly is Viviscal it’s a little on the pricey side but well worth the results. Wonderful post on how to manage and take care of the mane Ms Fiona 🙂
Thanks Empress Jenna! And yes, I hear Viviscal works wonders so I’m glad you’ve had awesome results. I am dying to try it when I run out of Phytophanere to see which works better for my body chemistry. I’ll post the results after my little experiment in a few months in The Mane Thing Part 2.
I have long hair, almost to the middle of my back. When I brush it, I am afraid that I am pulling out some of it by the roots – The last thing I want is male pattern baldness. Right now what I do is place the palm of one hand on my scalp to hold the hair (also hurts less). Do you think that I am a hypochondriac or do you think it is possible to just brush out too many hairs?
That sounds like a good brushing technique. Start from the bottom and work your way up gently.
Now the whole 100 brushstrokes a day fable is more harmful than helpful for the tensile strength of strands but stress and lack of meeting the proper nutritional needs are much worse culprits to the coiffure.
A detangler like Kendra (it lasts a looong time and only a little is needed) and a soft Bristle brush can be a bit easier on the scalp. Brushing hair that is dry or just a little damp as opposed to sopping wet is helpful too.
Biotin, Selenium, Fish oil, Flaxseed oil are all supplements to promote healthy hair. Course it’s always a good idea to double check with your primary care doc just to be sure there aren’t any possible interactions. PHYTOPHANÈRE and Viviscal as Ms. Jenna mentioned also seem to work in aiding hair growth and reducing breakage.
Rosehip seed oil is awesome to use (just a tiny few drops) as a deep conditioner. You can leave it on for 15-60 mins and then wash it out for a nice boost as well.
Giving yourself a little scalp massage is good to keep the blood flowing and has the added benefit of being a soothing stress-buster. 🙂
