How To Grow Your Hair Faster

Hey ladies,

SO you want to grow your hair longer?

Here are a few tips to get the length that you want fast!

  1. You have probably heard of this tip already, but \it is crucial. Don't brush your hair when wet! It is like a rubberband right after you wash it and easier to break. I  don't even use a comb because there is still that risk. 
  2. Keep any kind of chemicals away from your hair. During the summer our hair can be doused in chlorine and other pool chemicals. Bleach has the same effect: i.e. chlorine bleach. These dry out and strip natural oils from the hair shaft leaving it dry and brittle.
  3. No heat! Unless you make sure to use a heat....and UV protectant? A heat protectant spray that contains a uv protectant will safe guard your hair from the sun( I like Not Your Mother's Heat Protectant) 
  4. Instead of wearing a tight ponytail - let it loose. Having a tight ponytail puts stress on the roots and hair by pulling out hairs when making the ponytail tight and breaking the hairs as you keep tighening the ponytail.
  5. Brush hair in moderation - Brush your hair at least once a day, but no more than two times because brushing can cause breakage. Not brushing your hair can also cause damage because you have to get out more tangles the next day.
  6.  Keep your hair moisturized. Dry hair is harder to brush through and can lead to damage. I heard Mane N' Tail has a great conditioner.
Well.. that concludes my list, but if you have any more suggestions then please leave a comment for everyone else to see.

Sassy Strawberry Colada Featuring - Slim-Fast Strawberries ’N’ Cream Shake

Hey ladies,
We all like to have a cocktail from time to time but they can be too sugary and high in calories. What can we do to fill our glasses while not feeling guilty? Slim Fast has given us another option. They've come up with a few cocktail/mocktail recipes to help us feel full and satisfy our need for a girls night in. I was sent the Strawberries n' cream shake and used it in the Sassy Strawberry Colada mocktail.

The mocktail was smooth, sweet, and didn't taste like I was drinking a Slim Fast shake.  I think that having the natural fruit helped. It was a great treat.

FTC: I was given one bottle of Slim Fast Strawberries N' Cream Shake and plastic glass for free from Influenster and Slim Fast
