Whether you have frizzy hair, curls, or waves, the secret to hair growth rests in keeping your roots healthy, your hair moisturized, and locking in keratin. But how to do this? How to encourage healthy hair growth without having to sacrifice natural shine, styling preferences, and your daily hair go-to's? Easy! By starting on the inside and working your way out! What stops hair growth? The most significant factor for root damage is your diet. What you eat has a massive effect on your hair's overall appearance, growth, and health. Keratin and hair take a lot of Vitamin B, healthy fats, protein, zinc, iron, vitamin c, and biotin. To push the hair out, your body sucks up this good stuff from your food and funnels it into productive hair growth and strong, healthy strands. We recommend these foods for healthy hair roots: 1. Eggs for protein and biotin. These complex protein strands encourage collagen growth too- so think of this as a doubly beneficial diet choice! 2. Greek Yoghurt for zinc, essential vitamins, and minerals such 3. Citrus fruit for vitamin C and collagen production. 4. Chia seeds for protein, healthy fats, and antioxidants. What about breakages? Hair breakages also dictate hair length and growth. If your hair breaks, then it won't grow long (obviously)! Damages result in frizz, disrupting hairstyles, and stop hair length from developing. There is nothing worse than dry, brittle ends that flake and break. Breakages are caused by a lack of moisture, too much heat styling, chemical exposure, your diet, sleeping habits, washing habits, and forgoing proper hair care routines. Phew! It seems almost everything can result in split ends and nasty breakages! How do we tackle breakages? First, we need to address the cause! Lack of MoistureIf your hair feels dry and hay-like, it's time to ensure they're getting enough moisture. Try working hair oil and leave-in conditioner through your hair after the washing to give it that added hydration kick. Read on for our favorite hydration products below. Too much Heat StylingHairstyling is a quick and easy day-to-day fix for all kinds of hair problems. For most of us, turning to our hair straightener or a hairdryer is an essential part of our morning routine. However, too much heat styling weakens the hair and leads to breakage and frizz. Fortunately, this has an easy fix. Use a heat protection product (as listed below) and try to switch up your hair routine. Cutting back hot styling, even by once a week, can make a world of difference on your roots, breakages, and hair strength! ChemicalsThe chemicals in ordinary shampoos and conditioners, not to mention hair coloring products, can wreak havoc on your locks! The constant processing, drying, and chemical changes contribute to breakages and ruin hair length. Repeated dying works against the hair growth, fracturing the hair roots and surface and helping frizz and breakages to form. This is especially true for treatments using formaldehyde- such as Brazilian straightening. If you find that your hair growth has slowed right down after using chemicals, it might be time to restart your hair and let it return to a virgin state. Chemically damaged hair is almost beyond repair. However, salon-grade treatments may be able to help! DietAs we covered so far, your hair's strength is determined in the scalp. That means anything you eat, drink, and use internally will affect the production of your hair. Eating the right food and looking after your body is the best and most significant move you can make to ensuring fast hair growth. Sleeping HabitsYou know where this is going. Cotton pillowcases contribute a lot to breakages. The friction between cotton and hair causes snagging breakages and frizz. Why not try a silk pillowcase instead? The Afro-Creole community has used silk wraps for centuries for hair protection, growth, and cultural import. However, more recently, silk pillowcases have been used to protect hair cuticles, promote growth, and keeps natural oils on the entire hair shaft. Washing Habits Prepare yourself for some mind-blowing tips and tricks. Did you know that tying your hair up with a towel, while an automatic instinct, can cause some significant breakage? Yikes! Instead, try swapping your towel out for an old cotton shirt, a silk wrap, or a paper towel. The reduction in friction will do wonders for your hair growth and appearance. And finally... You need to treat you hair well!It seems counterintuitive, but getting a hair cut could be the best thing for getting long hair and hair growth. Why? Because split ends break, and they spread. That's not good! Getting a hair cut cleans up split ends and allows your hair to recover and thrive.The Wrap Life Head WrapThese beautiful and stylish hair wraps are available in a variety of patterns and fabrics. Plus, they are all great for your hair! The silk smooths your hair and stops friction and breakage while you sleep.

Hairstyles for the gym don’t have to be cute - but it’s nice when they are!! Here is a SUPER easy Dutch braid into a bun - perfect for the gym when you don’t want your hair getting in your face when you’re moving around! Begin with the Dutch braid which is a 3 strand braid taking pieces from either side of your head, UNDER the middle strand of hair. Then fluff it out by pulling on the braid strands and then take all of that and put into a half bun, wrap the extra hair and you’re done!!! Literally so easy yall and SO STINKING CUTE!! Xo, Johanna
My Top 5 Foundations for Oily Skin
My Top 5 Foundations for Oily Skin
Here are my top 5 foundations for oily/combination/acne prone skin! These are by no means my only favorite foundations, just the ones I keep going back to. 1. ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation This matte, oil-free foundation controls oil all day. It’s sweat, heat and humidity-resistant, waterproof and 24-hour colour true. With buildable, medium-to-full coverage that feels lightweight and so comfortable. No touchups needed. Best for hot weather/ holidays. The only Downside is that it doesn’t come with a pump 2. MAYBELLINE - Fit Me! Matte & Poreless Foundation This foundation is a must have if you are looking for a good drugstore option for oily skin. It’s super affordable and gives a beautiful finish without feeling heavy on the skin. 3. HUDA BEAUTY - Fauxfilter Foundation is perfect for you if you are looking for full coverage. Just a couple of pumps go a long way. However, the formula isn’t ideal for anyone with dry skin or for people sensitive to string fragrances. 4. L'ORÉAL - Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Longwear Foundation This formula blends unbelievably well and you can build this to completely full coverage! ! I'm beyond impressed for this being drugstore. 5. The Ordinary - Colours Coverage Foundation with SPF 15 this is my everyday foundation and gives good enough coverage. I just have to mix two different shades to get my color as the range is quiet limited but for the price I pay, I don’t mind. Always stay away form words like “dewy”, “luminous”, “shiny” , “glowy” if you have oily skin. Let me know if you have any questions.
Trying to find the culprit... HELP!
Trying to find the culprit... HELP!
Ever since I’ve added these two new products, I’ve noticed a couple new breakouts in places i’ve never experienced!!! They are red painful pimples too. Two on my forehead (I never get them there) , one on the outside of my nostril (i never get them there either), and the weirdest singular pimple on my NECK! Both of these products I have used on my face and neck, however, I’m not sure what product or ingredient is causing the sudden breakout!! Or is it just purging??? Help!!!!!! Did anyone else experience this with these products??? COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence Murad - Nutrient-Charged Water Gel
