1. Use the right hair brush
A boar bristle brush or a wet brush should be your best friend! It’s super important that your hair brush helps smooth the hair shaft, to minimize any breakage. A natural fiber brush, like the boar bristle, helps to minimize friction when brushing. Therefore, the hair doesn’t get caught on any knots, leaving the hair smooth and silky without pulling out hair strands. The trusty wet brush also does a fantastic job as the bristles bend around any tangles putting less stress on the hair. Start at the ends of the hair and work your way up rather than top down. This ensures no pressure is put on the roots, minimizing damage. Make sure you only ever use a wide-tooth comb when the hair is wet. Brushing when damp can cause a lot of damage as it stretches the strands rather than separates them.

But, while waxing thins the hair, it doesn’t change it’s growth rate or thickness. Waxing can be an affordable method for hair removal, but it’s important to take precautions. Never wax sunburned or very sensitive skin, and don’t wax if you have taken isotretinoin in the last six months.
For some, waxing can lead to red, itchy bumps on the skin. It’s fairly common, especially for sensitive skin types, but nonetheless less than ideal. If you find yourself suffering from post-wax bumps, read on for tips that may help soothe your skin after waxing.

Most of them are not easy to inculcate in our daily life. Once you’re ready to make a change, the difficult part is committing and following through.
We kiss with them, we sip with them, we angle them with finesse to create coy little smiles — they’re one of the sexiest parts of the body, and paired with the right gloss, balm, stick or stain, can make an onlooker weak at the knees.
We want it all when it comes to beauty products for the lips: color, shine, staying power, plumpness and an affordable price. The good news is we can have it all.
Eye liner is one of the most basic steps of doing your eye makeup. It gives you the freedom to work on the shape of your eyes, emphasize them and fill in any sparse looking lashes. It depends on the texture of the eyeliner and your preference as to how you’d like to apply this – clearly defined or smudged – it looks great either ways.

So if you’re planning a summer full of braids, look no further for inspiration. Here are a few braids for every skill level.
Summers come with mangoes, floral dresses and the sun’s wrath. But, no one can sit at home and avoid the sun tan. As difficult it is to avoid a sun tan, getting rid of it seems impossible because using chemical can also mean all sort of skin problems.
