Post image for How To Make Your Hair Grow

I’ve had long hair for as long as I can remember. Without it I’d feel like a totally different person! I feel that my hair is a huge part of me, and I love the versatility of having long hair – I can wear it a trillion different ways and never get bored. Going from long hair to short hair is easy – all it takes is a pair of scissors and a few minutes – but the transition from short to long isn’t quite so pleasant. If you’ve decided to grow your hair out, there are a few things you can do to speed up the process. Read more »

For anyone who is reading this now, beware of biotin. Some people are already describing some of the side effects above. I wanted super long hair as much as the next gal and tried whatever I could get my hands on. This included biotin. It is super cheap and very effective, but the only side effect was that my hair was shedding at an unnatural rate. It would literally fall out in fistfuls. I was becoming very scared, because I thought I was going to lose all of my hair and didn't know how to stop it. This was three days after I started biotin supplements, and already my hair had lost about an inch diameter of thickness. I had to go to my doctor to figure out what I could do (I know, it may be silly, but I couldn't bear the thought of my hair all falling out) and what she told me was that I already had enough of the vitamins that biotin supplemented. By taking the pills, I was created an unreal concentration in my body of it and therefore was experiencing the hair shed. Eventually, my hair built back up to its original thickness, but not before I ditched biotin all together and decided to take more healthy measures in order to grow my hair. For instance, I wouldn't wash it as often. This was kind of gross for me at first because I'm still a teenager and therefore still going through puberty so my hair still gets oily quickly. I had to find the right shampoo for me (which is Herbal Essences) and learned that if I put a thick headband on and tied my hair away from my face with a scrunchy at night, I could go at least one or two days without shampooing. I also drank water, and lots of it. I never thought this would benefit me as much as it did, but it really worked. I ditched heat altogether. I haven't cut my hair in about eight months and have no split ends. My hair has also grown about six or seven inches. As listed above, I also massage my scalp. This feels so good after a stressful day at school or work. Pure Heaven, y'all. The only vice I have is that my hair is so thick and long that it holds water in for so long after I shower that I have no choice but to tie it in a towel. I still haven't had split ends, though. Just a few tips for anyone who wants long hair as much as I did and will do anything to get it! Research, research, research!!!! Know what will work for you!

This might sound weird. Since i was 15 i have been conditioning my hair with 1/2 cup of mayonnaise and a squeeze of mustard every time I wash it I massage it in put on a plastic cap and let it sit for 15mins the longer the longer my hair grows. In August I cut off all my sides and back and only had the front right side which came to my shoulders. Then at the beginning of Oct I chopped it all off and was just faded now it's Jan my hair is to my shoulders again I wash it twice sometimes once a week and only use cooking olive oil in my hair it is very healthy and I take no vitamins I also haven't had any breakage. If this helps I am black not mixed with anything and I trim my hair every 2 weeks sometimes at day 10 bc it grows so fast. The longest my hair has grown was past my bust but i prefer short hair I'm now 30

Post image for Washed Ashore Nails

When it comes to painting nails, I feel like I always need something more than just a plain color. I like the excitement and surprise nail art can add, making your nails an essential accessory to any outfit. On Saturday, I took a day trip to Long beach Island, New Jersey, and was really inspired by the gradient of colors that was created when the ocean hit the shore. I wanted to replicate this by using a sponge technique on my nails with coastal colors. Since our Washed Ashore e-book just dropped this week as well, I thought this tutorial was quite fitting.

I just have one question: WHY? Why on earth do women put sea salt on their hair, when the first thing they do after swimming at the beach is race for the shower to wash the sea salt out of their hair? I just don't get it. It seems illogical. And in all honesty, I can't see any difference to anyone's hair when they use it.
