How are you doing? Hanging in there? I hope so. We’ve all received encouragement to keep on moving. That means working in different rooms, picking up hobbies, and changing out of our PJs!
Most of us still need to show our faces for work / conference calls, and connecting with loved ones via FaceTime.
So, what are you doing with your hair? Did you get it done before salons closed? If you’re someone who has been depending on going out to get your hair done, this may be a funky time for you.
I thought of a few at-home suggestions, while we wait, OR for when you just want to make changes and have fun:
With my added time being on the computer (administrator work, blog projects, photography), I need to pay attention to the details. Processes can take hours aka looking at the screen for a long time. Unfortunately, if I’m not careful, staring at a screen for a long time causes eye strain (a problem), which can lead to blurry vision and migraines. That’s something I don’t want! Nobody wants that at all.
Solution for now? Blue light blocking glasses.
I know it’s a current trend. There may not legit proven evidence that the formula works, but why not? If we have to use our computers a lot, might as well protect our eyes. Thankfully, these glasses are offered in prescription and non-Rx (like me!) lenses.
Collaboration: Thank you to Maple Holistics for making this post happen!
Since I began my hair growth journey (April ’18), I’ve been more viligant about finding quality products to use. Personally, I gravitate towards products that help strengthen my hair.
Everyone’s hair is different, so it’s important to do research to find out what’s going on and what works best for you. Check out this blog post.
Recently, Maple Holistics reached out and asked if I wanted to try their products. Since I’m particular, I took comfort in knowing their products are made with natural products, void of parabens and sulfates, and cruelty-free. I asked if their products worked for all hair types, and they said yes!
How simple or intricate is your makeup routine?
I know it varies for everyone. Some just need moisturizer and mascara before walking out the door. Or, they choose to not even wear makeup. I wish I was in that category! For others, a full beat is required. And that’s okay!
Lately, I’ve usually put on something, so I’m not scaring folks or having them think I’m always sleep deprived. I can’t always keep my sunglasses on. LOL.
But here are my go-to’s for an easy look, for just going out, or when I have to do these video conference calls (this is a new thing for me).
Newsflash: I’ve been growing out my hair.
It’s been a journey, a struggle, and everything in between.
A lil’ backstory: I had shoulder-length hair for most of my life. Most of y’all have only seen me with this short cut, but yeah, I had the braids, french braids, buns, and all of that jazz growing up. As college and life happened, stress occurred. LOTS OF IT. Stress manifests in different ways physically. For me, that was my hair. It would break off, sometimes literally falling out. It was getting to be ridiculous and it was hard to disguise it. Ten years ago, I decided to take that step and cut it all off.
