If you have oily hair, fine hair, frizzy hair, curly hair or you want your hair to grow, I’ve got a hair mask for you that you can make right out of your kitchen.  

  1. Oily Hair: Lemon, honey and apple cider vinegar. You need ¼ cup of apple cider vinegar, ½ a lemon, juiced and 1 tablespoon of honey. Apply to your hair and leave on for 15-20 mins. This mask helps with very oily hair because the apple cider vinegar has vitamins and nutrients to clean up the scalp, while lemon is a natural astringent and honey is antibacterial, meaning they can treat dandruff and reduce itchiness. 
  2. Fine Hair: Egg white and half a Lemon juice. Let this mask restore volume using just two powerful ingredients–egg and lemon juice. Squeeze the lemon juice into the egg whites. The proteins found in egg whites work to remove any product build-up, and they’re rich in vitamins to boost shine and lustre. Meanwhile, the lemon juice eliminates excess oil and strengthen hair. The limonene compound found in lemons give people with fine hair that bounce they’ve been looking for. 
  3. Frizzy Hair: Coconut oil, Jojoba oil and peppermint oil . 2 tablespoon of liquid coconut oil, 1 teaspoon of jojoba oil, 5 drops of peppermint oil and water to dilute. Leave on for 30 mins. Say goodbye to those pesky fly-aways. Coconut oil and jojoba oil keep hair moisturized and hydrated to avoid that static, frizzy look. Peppermint oil enhances the mask by soothing any itchiness and reducing flakes due to dryness, not to mention it will make the mixture smell amazing. 
  4. Curly hair: Avo, egg, lemon and olive oil. 1/2 ripe avocado, 1 egg, 1 tablespoon of olive oil and half a lemon juice. Optional: Add 1 tablespoon of honey. Leave it on for 30 mins. Give your curls some TLC with a hydrating mask. Avocado is a natural moisturizer—thanks to its fatty acids—that strengthens strands and makes it easier to run your comb (or fingers) through your hair. Eggs are packed with protein that can repair and nourish, and the lemon’s antibacterial properties reduce dandruff. Finally, the olive oil’s antioxidant components condition hair to be soft, shiny and healthy. 
  5. Good for Hair growth: 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder. Optional: Add 1 tablespoon of honey. Leave it on for 30-45 mins. We don’t have to tell you how beneficial coconut oil is, but do you know cinnamon is just as helpful in combating hair loss? The spice has antioxidants and vitamins to stimulate blood circulation to your hair follicles. Aside from encouraging growth, it’s also antimicrobial, which means it can help with dandruff and remove any excess product build-up.

It’s mid-year and while this year might be flying by, it’s usually this time of year that people start feeling the burnout.

Our plugged-in lives make it easy to work anytime, anywhere … and difficult to mentally “clock out.” It’s no wonder that more and more people are battling with stress, and overworking themselves until their personal well being suffers. The concept of “career burnout” is a hardly-talked-about condition that affects so many young professionals. What exactly is it?

Burnout is the depletion of internal resources due to chronic stress. What makes burnout so dangerous is that it’s rarely visible on the outside, and creeps up on the individual slowly.

This is what you can do to avoid it:

1.      Prioritize. You should overachieve only on the things that truly matter. Your boss will notice when you overachieve on things that matter to them and the senior leaders; this typically means excelling in areas that directly impact revenue, the strategic priorities of your company, or ideally both.

2.      Learn how to say “No.” Every “yes” you say adds another thing on your plate and takes more energy away from you, and your creativity.

3.      Self-care. We all know this. We all need to take this seriously and not shrug it off. It is vital for your mental health. Self-care comes in 100 forms, find what works for you whether it is meditation, exercise, going for a walk in nature, having a massage or getting together for a laugh with some friends.

4.      Separate Yourself. A change of scenery can do wonders to change your perspective. Even if it’s just a weekend away. Before the words “I can’t take time off” pop into your head, consider this: You’ll be much more productive in the long run if you take a few days to recharge, as opposed to fizzling out so badly, you can’t perform at your job anymore.

5.      Seek professional help.  If you’re right on the brink of a breakdown, self-care and vacations may not cut it. Getting professional help will be the best thing you can do just talk it out, get things off your chest and even get some fresh perspective or some fresh ideas on how to handle things.
