TIPS FOR BEAUTIFUL HAIR DAYS, 365 DAYS A YEAR

Imagine waking up every single day to a strong, shiny, and beautiful head of hair without having to spend hours and thousands on hair treatments and styling products. Such a lovely thought, isn’t it? Unfortunately, in the real world, achieving a beautiful hair day doesn’t just happen naturally. It takes time, effort, and again, a variety of hair styling tools and products.

But do you know that you can skip hours of primping in front of the mirror every morning without compromising your glorious mane? Yes, it’s possible! All it takes is making a few lifestyle choices to improve and maintain your hair’s long-term health and beauty.

Sweat it out. Hit the gym, do an evening run around your village, or bond with your girls over a zumba session at home. Whatever it is, maintain a regular exercise routine. It’ll not only keep your body fit and healthy but it will also stimulate hair growth. Exercise improves blood circulation in the body, including to the scalp, increasing nutrient and oxygen flow to the hair follicles.

Be mindful of what you eat. A balanced diet is not only necessary for achieving that dream summer body. Eating the right kinds of food and getting the proper nutrients are also important for strong and luscious locks. Load up on protein-rich food like fish, chicken, and lean meat to strengthen hair strands and hasten new hair growth.

Get enough sleep. Strive for at least six to eight hours of sleep every night. This allows the body to repair, rejuvenate, and restore tissues and muscles necessary for it to function properly. When a body is strong and healthy, it becomes evident through full, shiny and equally strong tresses.

So, make a smart and healthy choice now and enjoy a beautiful hair day all year long.

4 Simple Steps To Bring Health Conditions Under Control

4 Simple steps to bring health conditions under controlThere are bountiful words of wisdom out there, passed on from one generation to another. But perhaps the one ancient adage that remains timeless in its unfading truth is this: Health is wealth.

You heard it from your grandparents, your parents, your boss, your colleague, and even from your friendly neighborhood hairstylist. And yet despite its repeated presence in our everyday existence, many still seem to discount the power and significance of these three simple words.

Taking care of one’s health and staying in control of one’s health conditions takes conscious effort – lots of it. How do you start? Here’s what Novuhair suggests:

1. Get a complete physical exam. It may take a good chunk of your time yes, but it will be time well spent. A complete executive checkup will give you a comprehensive idea of how your health is doing, giving you the knowledge to verify which aspect of your body to zero in for further improvement. This will also shed light on any possible nutritional deficiencies that you have to address.

You can ask your employers when your annual schedule is, or you can voluntarily sign up for it by scheduling one at your preferred clinic or hospital.

2. Talk to a health professional. While your friends and family may have well-meaning advice regarding your health, they may not be the best source of suggestions on what course of medical action to take. A competent doctor is still the ideal person to talk to when seeking medical input on how to handle any sort of health condition.

If you have already screened and pinpointed your health concern through a medical exam or a previous consultation with a general practitioner, you can also opt to visit a specialist. A doctor specializing in the medical field you’re concerned about (eg. a dermatologist for hair loss conditions) will be able to provide you with more accurate information on possible further testing or the most appropriate line of treatment for you.

3. Commit to your treatment scheme and be ready for possible lifestyle changes and sacrifices you have to make. Getting health conditions under your control takes more than just a visit to the doctor. Most of the time, you’d have to put in an extra amount of dedication. Take your medicines as instructed, follow the required health routine regularly, and follow the diet plan set out for you. If you were told to steer clear of a certain vice, make sure you stay away from it. Vices like smoking and drinking too much alcohol can greatly harm one’s health. But for many, staying away from these is a major sacrifice – be prepared to make it.

For example, those experiencing hair loss and are using Novuhair to improve hair growth are advised to use the nature-based products such as Novuhair Herbal Shampoo and Novuhair Conditioner exclusively for the time that they are working on improving their hair loss condition. NOVUHAIR Herbal Conditioner together with NOVUHAIR Herbal Shampoo have been developed especially to prepare the scalp in an optimal way for the application of NOVUHAIR Topical Scalp Lotion and are expected to enhance its effects.

4. Get your loved ones involved in your health changes. It was mentioned in this article that your loved ones may not be the best person to consult for medical advice, but they’re definitely the ideal persons to turn to for support. Undergoing medical treatment brings both positives and negatives – positive refers to healing, and negatives being the ‘drastic’ changes you have to submit to in order for everything to work out. The latter can be easily dealt with, with the help of people who would constantly remind you of your goals, who would not hesitate to reprimand you for sliding back, and who has your best interests at heart. It can be as simple as switching to a nature-based hair treatment like Novuhair 3-in-1 at home, or as time and effort-consuming as going with you on workout or therapy sessions.

The Evil Called Procrastination

One of the most overwhelming evils of a person’s daily life is this gigantic monster called procrastination. It keeps you unmoving; it destroys schedules, distracts you from your goals, and ultimately makes you feel frustrated at the end of the day.

But, procrastination is a deliberate act of choosing another task over a more important one, which means you have all the power in your own hands to remove it from the daily equation.

How do you do that? To help you out, the Novuhair team has put together some tips:

1. Sleep early, and wake up early.

Getting very little sleep makes a grumpy you the following morning. And this starts an avalanche of procrastination over important things that must be done during the first hours of your day. Best thing you can do? Get to bed early, and train yourself to wake up early too! Have a hearty breakfast and a then a cold revitalizing shower using products with natural active ingredients like Novuhair 3-in-1 pack – contains one bottle each of herbal shampoo, topical scalp lotion and herbal conditioner to provide you the optimum benefits of NOVUHAIR® natural hair loss solution. When used in combination, you’d experience an even better result than used individually. You’ll find just how helpful this is in getting that fresh resolve to get things done as early as possible.

2. Set a schedule for every single day.

Knowing what you are supposed to be doing for the day, and seeing it in writing gives you a sense of purpose and direction. Get yourself a planner where you can jot down your tasks. There are planners with detailed time sections – go for those so you can specifically write down your goals by the hour.

3. Take things one at a time.

Big to-do’s tend to be set aside simply because they’re overwhelming and time-consuming. Don’t hesitate to break a huge task apart by dealing with it ‘piece by piece’. For example, goal number 1 is to put up your child’s playroom – start by setting today’s goal to ‘purchase kiddie furniture for the playroom’, and the next day’s to ‘sort existing toys’, and then so on and so forth until you see the playroom actually coming along nicely. This way, you achieve part of your big task daily, and eventually getting to finish it, without feeling the daunting pressure of it being a huge undertaking.

4. Make yourself responsible for missing deadlines.

Procrastination hates deadlines, and it also loathes ‘punishment’ for going off the timetable. If there’s a task you missed out on doing because you procrastinated, make yourself accountable by enforcing a self-imposed penalty. Missed to submit a report? Deny yourself that Friday night-out drink. Have a buddy in on your ‘punishment’, so you have someone looking out to ensure that it gets implemented.

We at Novuhair believe that procrastination, big an evil as it may be, can be defeated. All it takes is your conscious effort to make things work.

How To Keep Your Hair Healthy During The Summer Season

The sweltering temperatures of the Philippine summer season can really make one hot-headed – literally. With the degrees climbing from 32 to 37 centigrade any given summer day, there is just no getting away from the dryness and stress.

Add to that the slew of activities one can get involved in during the busy months filled with sunshine, and for sure, your hair will take in a steady amount of ‘torture’. That is, if you don’t take the necessary measures to take care of it.

Here are a few easy ways to make sure that your hair stays beautiful throughout the summer:

novuhair-3in1-lotion-shampoo-conditioner1. Keep your hair moisturized. One thing that summer does to your hair is to dry it out, not only through the temperature but also through swimming in pools or salt water. To keep hair smooth, healthy and well conditioned, best to use NOVUHAIR® 3-in-1 pack. Each set contains Novuhair Herbal Shampoo and conditioner, which keeps your hair hydrated through natural active ingredients and a topical scalp lotion to help increase the nutrition in your scalp.

2. Your lazy days at the beach must also include some sort of hair protection like a floppy hat, a visor, or simply wrap a scarf around it while you ‘sunbathe’. This way, you can keep some of the harmful UV rays away from your gorgeous strands.

3. If you plan to spend a considerable amount of time in the pool or the beach, don’t forget to bring with you some hair care elements like Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion. It will help you ensure that your lovely locks are not deprived of important nutrients it needs that chlorinated water and salt water tends to strip away.

4. Go for more laid-back or natural hairstyles. As much as possible, keep styling elements like the curling iron and blow-dryer away from your hair. Use of these tools will only add up to the heat and ‘stress’ that your hair has to suffer during the summer months.

5. Keep your head and hair clean. Pollution in the city, and even in favorite summer destinations tend to escalate during the hot months of March to May, and all the dirt can build up in your hair. Chlorine and salt from your refreshing dips can also take up space on your scalp. So make sure to rinse your hair with fresh water after a swim, and after a day spent outdoors.

5 Tips to Help Build Self-Confidence in 5 Minutes

Big presentations, giving a speech on stage, job interviews – these are some of the situations that can unnerve a good number of otherwise well-rounded individuals. Others soar above the intense pressure, while some just hopelessly falter.

So how do you make sure to stay composed when it is, finally, crunch time? Read on and find out what you can do to boost your self-confidence in as little as five minutes:

Smile. Better yet, LAUGH.

Before heading to the meeting room, watch a funny video, talk to your funniest friends, or simply find a reason to break into a smile. Doing so would not only take your mind off the pressure, it would also improve your mood and in turn the way you carry yourself.

Make extra effort to look good.

Go the extra mile to be at your best physically.  How you look during that significant moment will make an impact, not only on others, but more importantly, on how you feel about yourself. Make some time for your hair before you head to that extra special moment – transform it into your true crowning glory.

Try out Novuhair’s Topical Scalp Lotion and Herbal Shampoo, which will not only help your hair grow fuller, it will also make it look and feel healthier.

Here’s how to use it:

  1. Take a shower and use Novuhair Herbal Shampoo as you would use other shampoos. We don’t recommend the use of regular shampoos that contain harsh chemicals that damage the hair. You can also use other herbal shampoos like aloe or gugu. But, only Novuhair Herbal Shampoo will compliment the lotion and achieve maximum results.
  2. Rinse and towel dry.
  3. Apply liberal amount of Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion on the target areas.
  4. Massage the scalp for at least 5 minutes.
  5. Rinse and style your hair.
  6. Repeat the same procedure twice a day, morning and evening.

We recommend that if you work indoors, no need to rinse the lotion. Use it like a leave-on. This will produce better results. Refrain from using wax or gel to avoid further damage.

Exercise.

Why should you suddenly break out into squats, crunches, and lunges five minutes before the ‘big meeting’? It gives you that adrenaline rush. Yes, it’s that same feeling that allows people to lift things many times heavier their own weight. If it can make you lug around a refrigerator, it can help you go through that annual report with flying colors.

Speak up.

Best thing to do to get over the nerves? Pump up the volume a bit, to the point where your voice would be clear and audible. This way, your listeners can better appreciate what you have to say, and the sound of your own voice will help keep you on track.

Hair & Scalp Care Tips

Tip 1

Avoid subjecting your hair to excessive chemical treatment such as too much coloring, bleaching, straightening or perming as these can cause damage that may make hair break off or fall out temporarily. Consult a specialist immediately should you experience any abnormal hair fall.

Tip 2

Observe proper diet and nutrition as the body needs adequate protein, vitamins and minerals to sustain hair growth. Hair loss is sometimes linked to being anorexic or being afflicted with bulimia, an eating disorder characterized by the restraint of food intake for a period of time.

Tip 3

Androgenetic Alopecia accounts for 95% of all hair loss. It can affect both men and women although men experience a much greater degree of loss. In women, Androgenetic Alopecia appears as diffuse hair loss occurring over most of the scalp. In men however the pattern of loss usually starts with a receding hairline which then advances to thin the top of the head. For excessive hair loss, consult a specialist.

Tip 4

Traction Alopecia is usually caused by continuous and excessive pulling on the hair due to various types of hairstyling. Ponytails, buns, braiding and cornrows often result in a continuous pulling on the hair. This traction gradually results in hair loss. If this type of traction and hair loss continues for an excessively long period of time then the hair loss may become permanent. For excessive hair loss, consult a specialist.
