Summer Hair Remedies

Having fun in the sun can wreak havoc on your hair, so find out how you can beat the heat and repair your hair during the hot and humid weather! You wouldn't want to have a bad hair day for the rest of your summer vacation, would you?

Summer Hair Remedies - Goodbye Greasies!

You're bound to look slick in the summer - and not in a good way. You sweat a lot, and the sweat travels from your face to your hair, leaving you with greasy locks. Fight the urge to wash your hair every day cuz it'll overactivate the oil glands. Instead, wash every other day with a gentle shampoo and only apply conditioner to the ends of your hair.

Summer Hair Remedies - Repair Dry Hair

After a long day at the beach, your hair can look and feel like straw. To rehab your dry strands, you can apply kitchen ingredients like bananas, mangoes, avocados, olive oil, or mayonnaise for about 30 minutes and rinse it off. It's also a good idea to apply a leave-in conditioner with sunscreen - yes, your hair needs sun protection too!

Summer Hair Remedies - Fight the Frizz

Girls with curls have to give their hair a little extra TLC to eliminate frizz. Apply a frizz-taming product like Garnier Fructis Smoothing Milk while your hair is still damp, let it air dry and then finger-comb your curls. But don't style your hair in your steamy bathroom cuz the humidity will make it frizzier. Instead, do it in an air-conditioned place like your bedroom.

    Ok, so how would you tell a crush you like them without them knowing it's you?

    I've been there when I was still in school. I don't personally have many friends now that I'm graduated, but that's more because the people here aren't worth being friends with. Off topic, my bad- Anyways, just try being a nice person. Sit with the other kid that's alone during lunch, find someone who needs someone to talk too, be open. I realize this can be difficult to do if you're shy, believe me, I've been there as well. Just remember that you need to stay yourself. I've lost friends because they turned out to be someone totally different than how they made themselves out to be. It's not worth it to pretend you're someone else. If it doesn't happen naturally after a little while, then you just have to keep in mind that it's your turn to put yourself out there. Remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I made a friend, that's pretty cool." But, also remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I didn't make a friend, that's pretty okay too." If you put yourself out there and someone doesn't accept it, then that's okay. It just means they weren't meant to be your friend and someone else will come along much better for you.

    If most people from this generation don't want to be friends with you, you are doing something right.

    Be yourself,do what you like to do and people who like the same things will/should be attracted to you. Don't take to much thought to people who want to change you so then you can be their friend. as i said before just be yourself and people will like you and want to be your friend! TRUST ME ON THIS! :D :D :D :D

    Just be open, and talk to someone. I'm sure once someone starts talking to you they're find you cool, and other people might join in. (:
