Winter has a huge influence on our hair, making it incredibly dry, brittle, and very hard to grow your hair. We have you covered with our all-vegan winter haircare tips to ensure your New Year kicks off with a bang, with glossy, long hair in no time!


Tip 1: We Are What We Eat:

If you want to have long and healthy hair, review your diet. Thick, beautiful hair requires foods rich in healthy fats; including avocados, pumpkins, seeds, beans, coconut oil and any other kind of nuts. All these foods contain Vitamins A and C that stimulate the scalp and hair growth. Equally food in high dose of protein protect your hair from breakage and split ends so are also important additions. Alongside these vital healthy vegan foods some companies also provide vegan supplements with particular focus on your hair, nails and skin which can support during the winter months.


Tip 2: Avoid Heated Styling Tools:

You’ve heard it a million times before, but its so true…avoid those curling tongs/hair straighteners when trying to grow your hair! Their temperature can reach over 400 degrees and harms your hair like nothing else. Still want to tame those locks while growing out your hair? Use nourishing mousses, balms and gels in order to make your hair shine. There are such an array of products out there, each meant for a specific hair type and need so choose the one right for your particular hair query, whilst focusing on growth.

If you really cannot live without those straighteners, ensure you minimise the damage with heat-protectant. Although not a miracle worker these sprays can reduce the damage the high temperatures work on your hair.


Tip 3: Help Your Hair:

Regularly apply special masks to your hair in order to moisturize, nourish and hydrate it. You can even create a nourishing, natural hair mask from the things in your fridge! Choose avocado, coconut oil or cucumber to stimulate your scalp and hair follicles. These products will strengthen your roots and ends and can be left for as little as five to ten minutes to have an effect.

It’s official! Long, beautiful hair can be achieved…even in the cold winter months!

Shake The Dust Off Your Feet And Leave

Domestic 1

When Jesus sent forth his disciples to go and preach the gospel, he told them that “Whoever does not receive you, nor heed your words, as you go out of that house or that city, shake the dust off your feet.” This is a very strong advice we need to apply to our lives, especially in this violent world that people make us feel threatened most of the time.

There are things when broken, it can’t be mend. What’s the need to cry over that spilt milk, when you can’t take it back? I find it difficult to understand why many women caught up in an abusive marriage, still try to salvage that marriage.

That worthless man hits his girlfriend or wife every day. He has subjected her to a punching bag; giving her black eye, swollen face, broken nose, yet she still stays, hoping to save the relationship. My dear sister, that beast doesn’t love you, above all, you are too precious to be treated this way.

Real men don’t hit or abuse women. Please, lady; it’s time to shake off the dust of your feet in that abusive house and leave. One misses water when his well runs dry, thus; he will find out how important you are to him, after your departure. Above all, your qualities as a woman, which your abusive man never appreciates, will give you the love and happiness you deserve elsewhere.

I am a man; I know how it hurts when you love a woman who doesn’t love you. ‘The Jolly Brothers,’ the Jamaican reggae group wrote “When you fall in love, with someone, who doesn’t love you. They use you as, a puppet on a string. Look into yourself my friend, try to get wise and be a conscious one, when you fall in love.

Many men think money can buy love. Well, it may probably buy the love they are looking for. But do you know how stupid you are when in her heart she doesn’t love you but only pretending and enjoying your money? Apart from being a puppet on a string, you also become a laughing stock in the community, because the woman is telling all her friends “I am enjoying the fool’s money.”

It may be likely that she is cheating on you with the man she loves. She is enjoying your money with him. Hard working fellow men, please don’t be in such relationship. Shake the dust off your feet and leave. Not every woman wants a rich man. Some look for certain qualities, such as humbleness, humility, submissiveness, caring, loving and truthful. If you have any of such qualities, you will enjoy a happy relationship.

Life is precious, don’t waste it when you are lucky to live on this earth, in a time many people are committing suicide because they feel it’s meaningless to live. You’ve got the power to change your life positively, to let your light shine ahead of you, for everyone to see how great you are. That is if you shake off the dust off your feet in that stormy relationship and leave.
