8 Reasons To Absolutley Love Your Hair

8 Reasons to Absolutely Love Your Hair

There are so many things we pick apart when it comes to our hair. So in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, let’s change the regular status quo. Let’s LOVE OUR HAIR! Every single, twisty or straight, fine or thick, dyed or not dyed, strand. There are so many reasons to love our hair, but here are just eight of them to get us started. 

8 Reasons to Absolutely love your hair: It's unique to you

1. Your Hair is Unique to You

We shouldn't buy into the lies that only certain "looks" are beautiful. You shouldn't want to look in the mirror and see someone else. You should look in the mirror and smile at the reflection, happy and proud to be you because there's no other you in the world. Your hair is yours, and no one else has hair exactly like yours. So, look in the mirror and love your hair for its uniqueness, its connection to you and you alone.

 

8 Reasons to Absolutely Love Your Hair: Someone out there loves your hair, so you should top

2. Someone Out There LOVES Your Hair, So You Should Too

That's right. Whether your hair is unruly and curly, or pin straight and can't hold a curl, there's someone who's looked at you and thought to themselves, "I wish I had her hair." Trust me. You might not love that your hair is so thick, but there are thousands of women spraying volumizing sprays to achieve what your hair naturally possesses. It's hard to see beauty in ourselves, but to someone else, your hair is the "dream look."

 

8 Reasons to Absolutely Love Your Hair: Your hair is a part of you

3. Your Hair is a Part of You

At some point, you made a choice when it came to your hair color. You chose to leave it natural or to dye it that color, and in doing so you showed the world a little bit about yourself. Hair color showcases a part of our personality and is an extension of our style and character. So, remember why you chose it, and love your hair for it.

 

8 Reasons to Absolutely Love Your Hair: Your hair is fun to style

 

4. Your Hair is Fun to Style

Maybe it has been a while since you've styled your hair beyond your "normal look." Even if it doesn't turn out perfect, styling your hair, especially with a friend, can bring you entertainment and boost your confidence. So, invite some friends over, apply some face masks, and style your hair in a special way, just for the fun of it.

 

8 Reasons to Absolutely Love Your Hair: It'll boost your confidence

5. It Will Boost Your Confidence


Loving your hair just the way it is will free you from unattainable desires or false theories on beauty. People spend too much time wishing for things to be different. If you take a minute to be thankful for what you have, you'll finally be able to see just how great it is. Your confidence will receive a boost when you start to love the way you look.

8 Reasons to Absolutely Love Your Hair: It'll save you money

6. It'll Save You Money

Loving your hair the way it is, versus always changing it to be "better", will save you a lot of money in salon visits. Sure, you should take care of your hair. But changing colors and cuts all the time can get expensive and time-consuming. Loving your hair for what it is is cost-effective.

8 Reasons to Absolutely Love Your Hair: You hair is never as bad as you think

7. Your Hair is Never as Bad as You Think

Even when you're having a bad hair day, and you're sure everyone notices, it's never as bad as you think it is. When you look back at pictures from this time in your life, with this hair, you won't remember the bad hair days or the problems you had with your hair-do. You'll remember the person you were the memories you made. Plus, future you will probably think your hair looks great.  

 

8 Reasons To Absolutely Love your Hair: It's important

8. It's Important

There are so many people out there that put themselves down time and time again without really thinking about the consequences, but there are consequences. Self-esteem, being kind to yourself, looking in the mirror and smiling is so much more important than you can imagine. It might be hard to do, but it's worth it. Loving yourself, including your appearance, is extremely important to a happy healthy life.

10 Fall / Winter Curly Hairstyles with Satin Accessories.

" I always make sure that anything that I'm using has got a satin lining...Having a satin lining basically just means that your hair is going to be protected from friction or anything like that so it's going to reduce breakage".

Hey guys, it's Lana here and today I am going to show you guys some of my favorite fall/autumn/winter hairstyles and I felt like using a ton of accessories when I did these hairstyles because I don't usually accessorize and I've been loving it lately.

I've been using caps and beanies and hats and scrunchies and all kinds of things to try and create some really interesting looks, which I really hope that you guys enjoy. All of these that I'm showing you today are from satin-lined caps. 

 For the first look, I am going to take all of my hair into a  satin scrunchie, and I'm going to pull all of my hair through that once and then on the second time that I pull that through, I am going to sort of leave it halfway and then this kind of creates this faux bang, kind of pineapple bun kind of thing so you can take it to a side like that. Then I like to pull out some of the pieces that frame my face and I make sure that those are super cute by wrapping them around my finger and just turning them into ringlets.

Stylish Hair Protection

 I wanted to create something that women could wear to bed that was comfortable enough to wear and that had an elastic band so it stays on the head all night long. At the same time, for those mornings when you have to get up and leave to take the kids to school, to run to the store, to take the trashcans out, I wanted something that you could wear into public without feeling embarrassed.

So I created the Slap. It has a satin lining on the inside and an exterior fabric of cotton that's actually pretty stretchy, that fits all of your hair inside of it; and looks stylish enough to wear out.

"Whether you're going on date night or if you want to dress it up, dress it down, it compliments any outfit well".

The Slap is meant to protect the hair from harsh cottons, from harsh materials that suck the moisture away and leave the hair dry and brittle. What satin does, it allows the hair to glide along it, while keeping in the moisture in the hair.

When you're wearing the Slap, the satin on the inside acts as a protective barrier from any harsh cottons. It allows the hair to not only keep it's moisture, but it also makes sure that it remains untangled and it remains intact by the morning time.  

Get Slapped!
