Don’t Hold Yourself Back

As individuals, we can be our own worst enemy. It can be easy to hold yourself back and say, “I can’t.” Think again! There are ways for you to get rid of these negative thoughts that are holding you back from being all that you can be, and I want to share them with you!

Realize that nothing can hold you back. This is the most important step. If you don’t believe it, then you won’t be open to the idea of being able to accomplish whatever your heart desires. If you believe in yourself, you are opening yourself up to the possibility that anything is achievable (and it is!).

How To Properly Clean Your Hair Replacement System

washinghair

It’s important to remember that a Hair System is an investment. By taking proper care of it, you will keep it looking natural and make it last longer. In order to do so, I highly recommend following a well-prescribed maintenance routine and one crucial part of that includes proper cleansing of your system.

Before I discuss the appropriate steps in that process, I want to bust a myth right now: washing a wig or hair replacement system less does not make it last longer.  In fact, cleaning and conditioning with the correct products and procedure will increase the life span since it lifts the oils and grime that cause hair loss and make for an unnatural look.

If you wear your hair system attached in extended wear fashion (removed by professional every 4-6 weeks) it is best to follow these video steps here.

If your hair system is worn daily (taken on and off each day), I suggest following twelve simple steps:

Creating Better Posture – Hip Hinges

Correct posture is essential for the proper movement of our bodies everyday. I feel that springtime is a good time to improve our overall health and well-being.

One area of our bodies that tends to get neglected is the hips and they’re important to focus on in order to improve our posture, decrease pain and maintain flexibility. In today’s video my friend and our strength and conditioning expert, Mark Roozen, demonstrates exercises that will develop an improved posture.

Using a stick for support, you’ll bend forward bending at the hips. It’s key to keep the stick in contact with your lower body, which is the part of the body we want to stretch and utilize. This movement will engage the lower back, part of the body that gets ignored when we’ve been hunched at our computers or looking down at our phones or other devices.

Adapting a Fresh, New Beauty Routine

Not all beauty routines are made equal and during this spring-cleaning season, it’s important to revamp your current beauty routine. Let’s start with the basics.

Water is a crucial part of our daily lives and beauty routines. Our skin and hair depend on it to stay healthy and moisturized. We need to use water in these routines…not just any water though. Some water that comes out of faucets contains harmful chemicals such as chlorine which can cause hair to turn a greenish tone and copper which can cause hair to have an orangish tint. Water that contains those chemicals will do more damage than good when it comes to skin and hair.  Including making hair more dry, brittle and creating more tangles. I suggest investing in a shower de-chlorinator.  For more tips on how a change in water can start your beauty routine off right…check out my video above!

Linsey’s Full Makeover

“I didn’t recognize myself at first…I was so excited I jumped for joy! I can’t wait to go out and be myself.” – Linsey

Linsey was diagnosed with Grave’s Disease, an autoimmune disorder leading to hyperthyroidism, back in 1996. As we spent time with Linsey we found that her hair loss was caused by a combination of Graves’ Disease, Hashimoto’s Disease and the medications associated with them. For these types of diseases that cause damage emotionally, and physically it’s so important to build awareness so that women who may be suffering can seek and find help.

We prepared Linsey for her hair system by having a personalized discussion with her about her hair loss and determining which solution would be best for her specifically.

Freshen Your Bathroom Naturally

There’s a saying that says “A Lady Never Tells,’ and there are some household problems that we don’t ever talk about!  Well I’m about to share one of those secrets with you; I’ll let you in on this very special one for keeping your bathroom fresh!

I came across a great tip in Living doTerra magazine that I couldn’t help but want to share with my readers. This is a simple way to freshen up your bathroom, and one you’ll never forget.

Every time you take out a new toilet paper roll, add 2-3 drops of the essential oil of your choice to the inside cardboard of the roll. That way, each time you or someone else uses the toilet paper, you will instantly experience the fresh scent of that particular essential oil.

If you’re interested in trying my new trick, you can purchase your favorite doTerra scent on my online store here. For more health and wellness tips, make sure to follow my blog here.
