Refresh Your Hair For Spring

May 01, 2014

Beat the winter blahs and get your hair ready for spring with our easy tips and tricks! This spring it's all about glossy, natural hair so put down that straightening iron and welcome back soft and touchable locks. Say goodbye to overstyled hair, this season it's all about healthy shine

1. Add a clarifying shampoo to your rotation

After a long winter, your hair probably feels a little bit dull and lifeless. This is because there's a build-up of products coating your hair follicles. Get rid of that build-up by adding a clarifying shampoo to your rotation. You only need to use it once a week - think of it as a weekly hair refresh! Try Alberto V05 Tea Therapy Clarifying Shampoo, $1.79

2. Try a new hairstyle

You don't need to cut or color your hair to change your look! If you always wear your hair down, experiment with a pretty side ponytail or braid. Or update your look with a pretty headband. If you always wear your hair up, try it loose and wavy

Nothing makes your hair look healthier and fresher than a big trim. Go for at least one inch, don't worry it will grow back in no time. Those tired old split ends need to go!

6. Try a minty shampoo and conditioner

When we use the same shampoo and conditioner over and over your hair gets used to it and sometimes starts to look a bit dull. Introduce a minty fresh shampoo into your haircare arsenal - not only does the smell perk you up a bit in the morning, it feels amazingly fresh on your scalp too! Try Suave Professionals Rosemary and Mint Shampoo, $3.49

What part of it are you scared of? Is it eating in public and around other people, or just eating in general?  What it might be, if it's eating in public you don't like, is social anxiety, or social phobia. You should ask your doctor to check, because if it is, they can offer you ways to help. For instance, they might recommend therapists or group sessions to help ease your fear.  Even if it's just a phobia or, in unlikelier circumstances, an eating disorder, you should still go to your doctor or a therapist so you can try to overcome it. Try doing things that calm you down before these situations as well, like exercise, reading or listening to music (I'm not sure what relaxes you but sometimes these help). Also, you should try to slowly get used to the situations. So don't force yourself to eat straight away when you're out, but slowly start doing so whenever your comfortable with doing so. Unlike your mum wants, you can't just "stop" being scared because that's not how it works.  But right now, please don't force yourself into any of these situations. It's not good for your mental health to be forced to face a phobia of yours often.

Dear Dish-It, Within the last few years I have felt a bit sick and shaky when we go out to eat. It's not so bad when it's a carvery lunch or something at a pub, but settling down for a chocolate brownie and a milkshake shakes me up. Don't get me wrong, I love going out with Mum, but it's just sitting down and taking a bite. I want to chuck it in the bin. I love eating brownies and stuff at home and I'm pretty healthy. But I refuse to go to the town before lunch in fear. Mum told me I got to stop this or I'm going to develop a terrible phobia.  Please help! ElfyKathy, worried

She isn't jealous she is just dissappointed that you chose to get lessons when she did to get better . She had to get better to catch up to you so you can enjoyher as your best friend. Then you went ahead and got lessons as if you needed them. She is just upset that you showed off a talent that she didn't have. And she tried to get better to impress you but you got better as well. Which kept her at the stage she will always be at my best friend sings way betyer than me but I try.

It may be hard but break it down to them we aren't friends but we can be associates. It may leave them a bit dissappointed but tell them we aren't in the same category to be as close as friends.
