EL LAVADO PERFECTO: Mitos y Verdades sobre el cabello

Do I have to wash it every day? Does it grow more? Does it fall more? Read the experts opinion.

The hair is divided into root and stem. The root is what is under the skin (scalp) and the stem is the hair.

According Nueva Dermatología we lose between 50 and 100 hairs per day, product of the normal cycle of life, but they are immediately replaced by new hair.

 

WASH AND HEALTH

According Grimalt Dermatology there is no shampoo in the market that can reach the hair´s root and thereby damage it. As washing does not affect the result, its frequency does not affect hair loss. For the root is indifferent whether you wash it once or five a weeks.

Another thing is the hair care products such as shampoos and conditioners that directly affect the stem. Washing too often can cause more oil production from the follicles. And not wash it often can lead to microbial growth and reduce capillary oxygenation.

 

SHAMPOO AND LOTIONS

Again, the important thing to remember is that while specific hair products can increase the thickness or shine, do not increase the quantity and improve the fall according to Dermatology Cat.

It is always advisable to seek products that suit our type of hair, and be as neutral as possible because additional chemicals may be abrasive for the fibers.

 

OUR RECOMMENDATION

  • WASH: only when dirty, if it´s dry or normal 2/3 times a week, if not every day.
  • SHAMPOO: Use small amount of product, as a hazelnut in short or medium hair, and like a nut in long hair. Use shampoo once. Just put it in the roots. The long hair be washed when rinsing. Rinse with warm water
  • CONDITIONER: apply only on the long and never in the roots. 3 minutes rinse with warm or cold water
  • NOURISHING CREAM: apply only in the long and never in the roots. Do not mix with air conditioner, use one or the other. Leave 15 minutes, then rinse thoroughly
  • DRYER: use it as less as possible, heat affects the hair fiber and can dry it. Use always a thermal protector to minimize heat damage.

Try these simple tips and you´ll see the difference!

 

Ideas para organizar tu closet

The first thing we need to do to improve our wardrobe is organize it!
It happens often that I look for something and don´t know where it is!
Let’s begin:
1. First take everything out of the close! ALL … do not cheat;)
Put the different items in 3 piles:
a- what you are going to KEEP
b- what you are going to STORE: Do not keep things have not used in a while …
c – items that you’re going to DONATE: clothing that is too big, broken, outdated ….put everything you do not use for more than a year (it’s hard … I know … I had a dress that I bought 13 years ago and use just one haha)
2. put the clothes from pile A in the closet. Surely it starts to look nice
3. Save the pile B in places that use less in your wardrobe
4. Be creative with the rest. For shoes you can use these boxes or metal frames where you put everything on the floor of the closet. And for accessories (belts, wallets, bags) you can use hooks that stick to the wall. The important thing is that it is organize :)
5. You’ve done all the above steps? Now it’s time to relax, take some wine and rest. You deserve it :) :) :)

I hope you enjoyed it and thanks for reading.

3 Super Tips para ahorrar para las vacaciones

We all know that it’s not easy to save money for trips, that there are always other priorities on our list of expenses and that we often decide to postpone them.

For all travelers we have 3 tips that can help you. And not only to go on vacation, but to stay there longer, in a better place and spending much less than you think.

Tip No. 1: Anticipate

The number 1 rule of tourism companies is that a shorter time, more demand and more expensive goes out.

This means that if you buy your ticket and hotel with a lot of anticipation you will find better prices.

And how much is much? 1 year before is ideal. At that time they have little demand, so you will see many offers.

If you are changing plans often make sure you buy tickets that you can change the date for little money.

But beware: if you like risks and are brave and driven, you can buy them the same day you travel. That day go to the airport counter and can get real deals at the last minute. The airlines want to take the plane full so ask that they already know the bargain travelers.

And for the hotel is the same, in advance you can freeze the price, and then if there is inflation, devaluations or whatever, you have already paid everything and the changes in the economy affect you a little less.

Tip No. 2: In group

It is important that you know that to a larger number of guests, the cost of vacations is lower.

Although this concept does not apply to airfare, since most airlines do not give group discount unless you have a prior commercial agreement.

Also consider that the food in groups is also cheaper. And if you travel by car can share the fuel costs among several.

Recommendation: go with people you know previously and with whom you have good vibes.

Tip No. 3: Be flexible

While it is true that you can plan and make an effort to get the money to your dream trip, it is also true that you have to enjoy it and try to go on vacation is the least stressful possible state.

So we suggest that you have a Plan A, B and C.

In Plan A doesn´t go well, go to the cheaper B. And if that one doens´t work either go for the C instead.

Plan C is to do tourism in your own city. Feel a tourist and get contagiate from those who come from outside. You will end your vacation knowing a little more about where you live and having saved a lot.

The important thing is that, after any vacation you do, you will come back with another perspective, and with an anecdote or two to tell your friends.

Good trip.

¿Dónde ir de vacaciones?

There comes that time of year where we go on vacation.
The question is where are we going?
The truth is that we can not afford to go anywhere like if we are millionaires.
My suggestion, something I did and I worked for me, is to make a small list of things that can help you with your decision.


The steps:
1. Make a list of 5 places you like to visit. If you do not know View places in Google Maps, or look up in a travel agency. Ex .: Riviera Maya (you got several cities here), Rio de Janeiro, Miami, London, París…
2. Think how many days to have for the trip. I got 14 days 🙂
3. Now calculate the cost of each: tickets, hotel, car and food. In my experience you should not buy packages as they are much more expensive than organize the trip by yourself. For the accommodation you got several places in each country where apartments are rented (in Brazil View aluguetemporada.com.br) or hotels (http://www.booking.com/).
4. Assign a score to each city according to your likes. I put: Miami 10 Riviera Maya 9 Rio de Janeiro 10 London 20! haha….
5. Make the choice! This is the most difficult step. The idea is that you see in the balance the cost and the desire that you got to go there!
5. And this is very important: once made a decision Do Not hesitate !! Making the decision is as important as taking action.


And once you reach your destination rid of everything and have a good time! And remember that it will take you a few days to relax.
Good holiday and you enjoy it! 🙂

Cómo usar: BLANCO Y NEGRO

The black and white look is easy to achieve and gives an air of sophistication and style. It is used by fashion bloggers like @vivaluxuryblog and also by celebrities as it has many possibilities and always ensures a successful combination.

To achieve this fashionista outfit please look  the effects that each color and find out the best option for your body type.

White has the ability to attract forward and draw attention, catches the eye straight to where you put it. This means that when you want to give volume to one part of your body, your best choice is white. For example if you want to highlight your bust wear a white top o one with details in white on the neckline.

Black, however, absorbs colors and sets in the background all you saw. What at first sight means that hide lines and reliefs. If you have some part that you want to hide wear this color. For example, if your hips are prominent or your legs are heavier, look for a black pants that will help you hide those areas.

With this information you can choose, according to your body shape, what color to wear in each case.

Find out the perfect match for you:

  1. If your weight is on the bottom of your body (like a PEAR): choose black on bottom and white on top
  2. If you have broad shoulders and small hips (like a CARROT): uses black above and white below
  3. If your weight is on the middle (like an APPLE): wear a black top and add some details in white on the neckline, and a white bottom
  4. If your figure is athletic and straight (like a BANANA): wear in the waist black and white at the neckline and hips
  5. If you have a lots of curves (like an HOURGLASS): wear in the waist black and white at the neckline and hips to highlight them

As an additional tip these suggestions also works to dark and light colors.

PORRIDGE: desayuno saludable

Much has been heard of the famous porridge, not only by blogs but also of celebrities known for their healthy lifestyle, including Elsa Pataky and her husband Thor (Chris Hemsworth).

The health benefits are many but what interested me most was that according to a study by Harvard University there is a relationship between the consumption of whole grains and increased life expectancy.

I leave you my version that it´s a bit more limited in terms of calories. If, like me, you got a few extra pounds, I recommend you to use this recipe.

As Anthony Bourdain says, you have to try it 3 times first ;)

INGREDIENTS:

1/4 cup oatmeal (which comes raw with big flakes)

3/4 cup water (you can use also milk)

1/2 tablespoon of honey

Stevia (or some natural sweetener)

2 egg whites

1 teaspoon of chia seeds

Blueberries (you can also use fruit, homemade jam, nuts)

PREPARATION:

Combine oats, water and stevia in a container. Bring to medium heat and stir until the porridge becomes soft and creamy.

Remove from heat and add the egg whites, stirring vigorously with a fork.

Once again mix well and cook 1 more minute.

Remove from heat and put in a bowl.

Add cranberries and honey above. Bathe with chia seeds.

Enjoy it!
