Summer Hair Remedies

Hair can get pretty frizzy in the summer.
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.

    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.
