care for your hair

anonymous asked:

how do i come out to my parents with wanting to cut my hair short, like a male?

Kai says:

we have a Coming Out Page (see link on our page) that you could look at. If you don’t want to fully come out to them, find pictures of celebrities/famous people who are women who have short hair in the style that you want and ask your parents to get that haircut for whatever reason (easier to take care of, less hot in the summer, keeping hair out of your face, sports/swimming/etc, looks cute/good) and see if they let you

One thing that no one ever really talks about with depression is how self care is practically nonexistent. I’m talking about showering, brushing your hair or your teeth, like normal everyday things that people do. I struggle with that aspect so bad and I feel like it’s more common than most people know.

So if you showered today, I am proud of you. If you brushed your hair or your teeth, or did anything to take care of yourself today, I’m so proud of you.

And even if today was not a day where you felt capable of caring for yourself, I am still proud of you for even being alive. If the most you did was wake up today, that is still enough.

5 Things I Wish I Knew Before I Went Natural

Just thought I’d share 5 tips for anyone who is new to natural hair or thinking about going natural.  Feel free to add your own. Xoxo

1.  Coconut oil is amazing, but it’s not a miracle worker..You still have to take care of your hair.

2. Just because someone’s hair looks the same as yours, that doesn’t mean that your hair will react well to the products they use.

3.  Don’t pay attention to what society says, all hair textures are beautiful.

4.  Hardly anyone believes in the phrase “dime sized amount” ..You’re not alone

5.  Enjoy each length you’re at, all lengths can be beautiful and stylish.

ok, this is my 2 cents and then i’m done lol: 

harry saying nothing rn is totally cool and fine IF he’s still on hiatus and not dropping an album in 10 weeks (or less). the registration of a touring company does show an intent, regardless of when it’s going to happen. so, i really hope he’s not putting out an album until after dunkirk. mainly because he’s so distanced from 1D fans right now and it makes him look like a person that i know he’s not. 

if he were to wait until after dunkirk, it would be perfect timing. he would have re-engaged his fans and also engaged new ones with dunkirk promo…awesome segue! 

and yes, i’ve been a total supporter of harry’s right to silence during this hiatus. which he DOES have and it’s totally copacetic IF he’s continuing hiatus until around when dunkirk promo starts. but to just not be engaged at all and then suddenly drop something out of NOWHERE and just expect everyone to buy it just because we’re here…seems arrogant and presumptuous and i don’t like it. 

so…in conclusion…i love harry TO DEATH, as if he were my own, but i don’t like this vibe right now. don’t get me wrong, i’mma still buy his album but…i don’t like the whole… situation (IF it is in fact, the real situation) and jeff should Do Better if this is happening Soon.

Stop comparing yourself to others; it’s toxic.

No one is thinking about what you’re wearing, the pimple on your chin, or how messy your hair is. No one cares.

Things happen at a different pace for everyone and that’s okay.

Stop looking at your old conversations with them. Stop checking their social media. Stop checking up on them. Stop.

Abstain from living by all these unspoken rules. Talk to that cute girl at the coffee shop. Ask more questions. Demand to be heard.

Have respect for yourself because you deserve it.

Ask for help if you need it, there is absolutely no shame in needing help.

Sometimes you’re not going to feel okay, sometimes you won’t feel okay for a long time, and that is okay.

You are more than all of this.

You shouldn’t be ashamed of the things that you enjoy. 

Not everyone is going to stay and you have to learn to be alright with this, grieve, and move on.

Learn to be kind with yourself. 

You shouldn’t waste time trying to live up to someone else’s ideal version of you. 

It’s normal to be scared, everyone’s scared sometimes, and that’s quite alright. 

Don’t let anybody else tell you how to live.

All that matters is that at the end of the day you feel accomplished. That you feel proud of who you are and how you’re living your life. What others are thinking does not and will not ever matter.

Alright so ever since the end of middle school and all throughout high school I’ve been straightening my hair which is naturally curly because of the way people would comment on how “big and poofy my hair was” which would make me feel super insecure. I wouldn’t go to school without straightening it but I wasn’t even that good at doing my hair so I’d put always tie it up in a tight braid. Even when I put it in a pony tail my friends (who I’m thank god no longer friends with) would make fun of how big my hair was and that they’ve never seen an Indian with such curly big hair. Now I’m going to graduate soon from high school. Recently I met with a hairdresser, a guy from Lebanon who was so nice but also told me to back tf off with the straightener because my curls would be damaged and that curly hair is really beautiful. First off that really touched me because I’ve never, not once received a comment like that. I haven’t touched the straighter since and I’ve been trying products to protect my curls. Today was the first day I wore my hair down, natural curls and with a product that helped. And I am so happy. I love my hair and thank god I finally saw the beauty of my natural curls otherwise I would’ve damaged it. I’m just really happy with myself. I would’ve never imagined myself doing this. Please, if you have curly hair, do not straighten it, embrace it. Curly hair is so beautiful, natural hair is so beautiful.
