Less Choice Might Not Be Such A Bad Thing
I don’t know about you, but my eating habits have definitely changed during lockdown. Availability and acceptance, of course, play a huge part in this, but let’s be honest, food is the biggest excitement. It’s a frequently visited topic of conversation in the house and the greatest joy.  Let’s momentarily glance back to pre-lockdown behaviour. We had become complacent. We could nip to the supermarket (now a major operation) or take an online shop to checkout in under half an hour (and have it delivered the next day, would you believe?).

Sleep Hacks: ways to wind-down
Whether you struggle getting to sleep, staying asleep or even waking up, there’s something here that might make all the difference to your night time routine. Everyone’s mind and body works differently, but the science behind it is all the same. There are just some specific things that really don’t promote a healthy sleep and some that really do. With a little bit of patience and knowledge, you may figure out where you’re going wrong before bed… That conventional cup of caffeine, I mean tea, before bed? Could be the worst decision you make.

Whilst we continue to spend time in isolation, the more we notice around us.

With spring creeping towards and more time on our hands, there’s no better time than now to release your inner Marie Kondo and cleanse every inch of your life.

8 Hair Myths Busted

You’ve probably heard several hair tips, tricks and advice pieces from many people, but did you know that a lot of common beliefs around hair are not actually true? When it comes to taking care of your hair, it’s important to have the right information, so that you can establish a hair care regimen that’s effective and suitable for you and your hair type.   

Where do you start you ask? Here are our top 8 Hair Myths BUSTED, so you can start ace-ing your hair game.  

  1. Trimming your hair will stop it from growing.

Absolutely not. In fact, you should regularly trim your hair to get rid of split ends and single strand knots, which ultimately helps to maintain the condition of the hair. 

 

  1. You need to wash your haireveryday.

This is so unnecessary. Overwashing your hair strips it of its essential oils, completely drying it out. However, you should definitely wash it regularly to keep it clean. Make sure you use a deep conditioner or a hair mask as part of your hair washing routine and ensure all product is washed out. 

 

  1. It doesn’t matter what shampoo you use.

Yes, yes it does. The whole purpose of shampoo is to cleanse your hair of dirt and impurities, whilst keeping it fresh and revitalized. However, you should be using the right shampoo for your hair needs. There are so many shampoos out there that target different hair types.  

 

  1. Conditioner weighs down fine hair.

Now this one is half true – some conditioners do weigh down your hair and some don’t. When applying conditioner, apply throughout the hair and down to the tips, avoiding applying product around the scalp area. Don’t over focus on your roots when your ends need as much love as they can get.  

 

  1. Frizzy hair can be tamed by wetting the hair.

This isn’t true and those of you with natural frizz will know. Wetting the hair can make the hair so much harder to control, tapping into your natural frizz. To combat frizz, use an anti-frizz product such as a spray, serum or leave-in conditioner to help control your hair. 

 

  1. Hair doesn’t grow in the summer.

Heat is known to encourage and promote hair growth, whilst hair is thought to grow 10-15% more in the summer season. Get ready for that summer glow up! 

 

  1. Women can’t experience hair loss.

Untrue. Some women can experience hair loss as a result of several factors, which can include hormonal changes, extreme dieting, stress, genetics and medical conditions.  

 

  1. You can skip using a conditioner, especially if you have fine hair.

Nope. A conditioner is an essential part of a haircare regimen. No matter what your hair type or texture, conditioner can help to detangle hair and provide nourishment.
