Reasons Why Your Hair Is Shedding

Shedding is a major concern for everyone. Getting the length you desire can be a daunting task and to lose the length  you've worked  to achieve is equally too painful to bear. What I've noticed is people fail to understand the link between your general health and the health of your hair. What you put into your body affects your whole body, including your hair! Shedding doesn't happen overnight - your hair will give you signs that something is wrong; we don't pay attention until it gets worse! 1. Postpartum shedding: I get this complains a lot and get surprised that though ladies are aware of how having a baby affects your hair, it seems reading about it isn't part of the solution we want.

I love YouTube videos but as a youtuber, I have set certain standards and limits regarding what I watch and who I follow

Minimalist Hair Care 2021 Goals

However, there is a huge gap between hair needs and hair wants. I've been a minimalist in my hair hair care over the pass couple of years. At the early stages, I was a product junkie. I scaled down when I became more of a scissor happy person. Now that I'm back to growing my hair long, it's difficult splashing money on new products. For 2021, I intend to still continue with the less is more approach - more of hair masques and shampoos and less of oils. I have tons of oils I hardly use and I want to use them all up in the coming months. I want to invest in hair masques and edge gel since my goal is to keep the hair looking neat and sleek at all times! This is related to my general 2021 of being presentable anytime of day. The essence of the masques is to make sure I deep condition twice a month instead of once a month f
