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!

How To Be A Celebrity When You Are Not: Your Personal Appearance Influence How Others View You

Dressed 3

Just as homes have straight forward stories to tell about people’s behavior and the sort of environment they grew up, the same way our personal appearance says much about us. In the first place, why is it necessary to be clean, neat and be modest in clothing? Being naturally clean person and hygienic conscious conclude that you have self-respect.

There are certain important things we need to do daily in our lives that can’t be ignored. Even though due to poverty, health and other life problems, many have lost the control and ability to take proper care of themselves. It is very common and part of our everyday life to see ladies and gentlemen in town and offices, but they dress very shabby. Some of the dressings are so bad that you may wonder if they have mirrors at home.

Others put on the most magnificent perfume to add program to their personalities, but by chance if some of these glamorous workers invite you to their homes, you may not like to go to the house again if given second invitation, because of the the poor organization and filth in the house.

If you take a wider view of things, you can discover that dating and friendships seem to be disappointments. Many are hurt or recovering from love affair disasters. Why must my date end in this way? This is one of the questions that usually follow. Many times it may be differences of opinions, careers and misunderstandings but at times it may turn out to be that the partners don’t like something about each other, especially about his or her home, body or clothes.

Keeping the body clean and modestly dressed are very important. One that works at the office’ clothes shouldn’t be the same like a clown who entertains at the circus. Have you ever heard someone telling another person “Repair your shoes, for they talk about you?” If the heels of your shoes are completely worn out, every step you make attracts people to look at you, because the rhythm of the footsteps is unusual. Imagine if you haven’t polished your shoes over a year, how will they look like?

Cleanliness is next to Godliness they say, apart from good health and the creation of healthy environment, good personal appearance attracts people to view you as outstanding among others. The good news is you look like a celebrity in the eyes of onlookers but the bad news is you may get many date invitations, which you may not feel comfortable with it, because your heart belongs to only one person. However, count yourself a lucky person when you attract than repel.

Paid For: My Journey Through Prostitution

 

PAID 2

An astonishingly brave memoir of life in prostitution and its lingering influence on a woman’s psyche and life.

“The best work by anyone on prostitution ever, Rachel Moran’s Paid For fuses the memoirist’s lived poignancy with the philosopher’s conceptual sophistication. The result is riveting, compelling, incontestable. Impossible to put down.

This book provides all anyone needs to know about the reality of prostitution in moving, insightful prose that engages and disposes of every argument ever raised in its favor.” ―Catharine A. MacKinnon, law professor, University of Michigan and Harvard University

Born to mentally unstable parents, Rachel Moran left home at the age of fourteen. Being homeless, she became prostituted to survive. With intelligence and empathy, she describes the fears she and others had working on the streets and in the brothels.

Moran also speaks to the psychological damage that accompanies prostitution and the estrangement from one’s body. At the age of twenty-two, Moran escaped prostitution. She has since become a writer and an abolitionist activist.

The Author

A Glance At The Lives Of Great Minds Without Degree

Imagine a world without education or any educational institute, how would life be? Yet there are many people that have significantly created enormous impact in the world, without higher education.

Millionaire 3

Approved Index, a business to business platform researched on the world’s 100 richest people and discovered that thirty-two percent of them did not have a degree. Twenty-two percent who did attend university studied engineering, while twelve percent read business, making these the best degrees for those with billionaire aspirations. The arts accounted for only nine percent.

This article doesn’t mean that education or studying for a degree isn’t all that important, since it is easier for educated people to be successful than the uneducated. The research also revealed that North America accounted for 40 percent of the wealthiest people on the planet, while Europe provided 29 percent and Asia 22 percent.

Do you remember the lyrics of the song “You Can Get If You Really Want” by the Jamaican Reggae Star Desmond Dekker?”

“Persecution you must bear
Win or lose you’ve got to get your share
You’ve got your mind set on a dream
You can get it, though harder them seem now

But you must try, try and try
Try and try, you’ll succeed at last.”

The lyric of this wonderful song encourages and inspires. For whatever reasons which prevented you to attend a high school or attained a degree, that shouldn’t be a barrier towards your aims and objectives, once you’ve set your mind on a dream.

Bill Gates has been instrumental in creating and developing the home computing era that has thoroughly transformed nearly every aspect of our lives, from work to commerce to communication. Stepping down as CEO of Microsoft in 2000 after 25 years at the helm, he remained as chairman, a position he still holds.

Bill 1

This book paints a vivid picture of Bill Gates that covers his early life and his years as an inquisitive and adventurous student to his experiences as a budding entrepreneur and billionaire philanthropist who has often been listed among the richest individuals in the world.

Author Michael Becraft presents complete information on how Microsoft evolved, from the company’s inception until Gates’s departure from active leadership; documents the economic, ethical, financial, legal, management, and leadership applications inherent in Gates’s work; and examines the criticism that Gates’s actions and decisions have drawn throughout his career.

Inventor. Visionary. Genius. Dropout. Adopted. Steve Jobs was the founder of Apple and he was all of these things.  Steve Jobs has been described as a showman, artist, tyrant, genius, jerk. Through his life he was loved, hated, admired and dismissed, yet he was a living legend; the genius who founded Apple in his parent’s garage when he was just 21 years-old, revolutionising the music world. He single-handedly introduced the first computer that could sit on your desk and founded and nurtured a company called Pixar bringing to life Oscar wining animations Toy Story and Finding Nemo.

 

Bill 2

So how did the man, who was neither engineer nor computer geek change the world we live in, making us want every product he touched?

On graduation day in 2005, a fifty-year-old Steve Jobs said: ‘Today I want to tell you three stories from my life, That’s it. Just three stories’. The first story is about connecting the dots. My second story is about love and loss. My third story is about death.

This is his story… 

Critically acclaimed author Karen Blumenthal takes us to the core of this complicated and legendary man, from his adoption and early years through to the pinnacles of his career, his dismissal from his duties at Apple (for being too disruptive and difficult) to the graduation where he gave the commencement speech just 6 years before his death, giving life to what were soon to become some of most famous quotes of his career, ending with the message:

Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish. And I have always wished that for myself. And now, as you graduate to begin anew, I wish that for you.” “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.”

Mark Zuckerberg, the youngest Person of the Year named by Time magazine since Charles Lindbergh in 1927, has grown in prominence as rapidly as the company he founded in a Harvard dorm room in 2004. The public’s appetite for insight into Facebook and its founder seems nearly insatiable. Curiosity abounds regarding Zuckerberg’s personality and management style, since fictional Hollywood portrayals and Wall Street whispers have painted a broad-strokes portrait of the young CEO that is at best only a fraction of the truth.

Bill 3

Given Facebook’s current $58 billion market capitalization and 845 million worldwide users, there is clearly more to Zuckerberg than any over-simplified caricature could convey. The Boy Billionaire: Mark Zuckerberg In His Own Words is the first and only book to detail the visionary thoughts and opinions of Facebook’s founder entirely through direct quotations from Zuckerberg himself. It is the most intimate and most authoritative look at the man behind Facebook’s once-a-generation success, the tech heir-apparent to Steve Jobs and Bill Gates.

Like those two pioneering entrepreneurs, Zuckerberg has proven to be a calculating and sometimes ruthless strategist with a steadfast commitment to his vision. Facebook exists somewhere between a social utility and a model of 21st century business, leading next-gen tech companies through an economic climate still scarred by the dot-com bubble of the early 2000s, but increasingly driven by the inevitability of a global marketplace built on social media technology.

Facebook’s potential is unknown, but the key to its success depends on Zuckerberg’s own ideas and vision. This book serves up his most thought-provoking insights, as researched and chosen by George Beahm, the New York Times bestselling editor of I, Steve: Steve Jobs In His Own WordsThe Boy Billionaire: Mark Zuckerberg In His Own Words provides crucial illumination of Zuckerberg and the company he’s created, emphasizing insights, business strategies, and lessons learned. It is essential reading for people who seek innovative solutions applicable to their business, regardless of size, and makes an ideal gift or reference item for anyone interested in this newest of American business icon.
