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.

Definite red flag; talk about it with him/her/them.  other signs, include: -being doted and adored one day, and the next being pushed away and ignored, -you're afraid of your partner -they obsess over and call/text you constantly -you may find you've lost your confidence -many ups and downs in the relationship, constant roller coaster -you aren't yourself. you change and adapt for them, drop hobbies if they're not into them, etc. -something tells you you cant trust them again, there are many resources out there if you need to talk. never be afraid to speak about it to someone- a family member, a teacher, a close friend, the police, a guidance counselor, etc.  I bolded that one part. The whole thread is great. And that one is a sign. But remember people with mental illness may also show signs like this to. If they have a good they they may spoil you and love you, and then the next day they're having a bad one. So they might push you away. They also may suddenly dote on you one day also to make up for a bad day. I'm not making an excuse, it's still a ver bad thing to do. I'm just putting it out there. that's a good point.
