Four Ways To Take Care Of Your Family’s Hair!!

If you are looking to keep up appearances, taking care of your family’s hair is a great place to start. Your hair is one of the first things that people notice about you. If it is unkempt, greasy, or poorly styled, it will appear as though you do not take pride in your appearance. However, if your family is lucky enough to have shiny and thick hair, it will send the message that you are all happy and healthy individuals. Don’t just leave this down to luck. Take control of the situation and follow these simple tips.

Find the right style for you

The way that you wear your hair can drastically alter your appearance, which is why it is so essential for you to find the right style. It might seem like a daunting task but why not turn experimenting with your hair into a family event. As we all know, kids can be brutally honest, and therefore they might be the perfect judges for your new style. Ask your little ones what style their favourite celebrity is rocking and try your best to recreate it for them. Although such an endeavor may sound unrealistic, with the help of YouTube tutorials, it shouldn’t be too hard!

Protect your family’s hair

Make sure that your family’s hair isn’t suffering from heat damage. It may sound like an argument waiting to happen, but try to limit the time your teenagers spend using their straighteners and curling irons. Encourage your family to embrace the natural look as much as possible. Heat damage can cause many problems for your hair such as split ends, dryness, and frizz. One useful tip to avoid frizz is to blow dry your hair on a medium setting. It might take a little longer, but it will help you to avoid the dreaded snowball effect. Also, remember to use heat protecting products if you really can’t bear letting your hair dry naturally.

Regular haircuts

One really important way to take care of your family’s hair is to invest in regular haircuts. While some moms opt for cutting their family’s hair themselves, it might be an idea to splash out for a professional job once in a while. A really good cut can dramatically improve both the health and the appearance of your locks. Even if you, or a member of your family, is trying to grow out your hair, it is important to have it cut regularly. The ends of your hair are the oldest bits and are more likely to be dry and damaged.

Thicken your hair

Finally, here is one for the adults. Over the years, men and women alike may find that their hair starts to thin. Although a natural result of ageing, thin hair does little to boost your confidence and appearance. In extreme cases, thinning hair can leave you looking unwell. If this is the case, consider using a Keratin conditioner that works to give you thicker and fuller hair. It conditions and gives volume to your hair without weighing it down or leaving you with a heavy, waxy residue. It also defends your hair against breakage.

 

MixMart 2.0MP USB Digital Microscope with Advanced CMOS Sensor!

With 36 more days of summer vacation I found a very FUN AND educational device for the entire FAMILY!!

This is a USB digital microscope from MixMart.  This is a  3 in 1 multi-functional microscope. Not only can we use this as a conventional microscope that magnifies up to 200 times, I can also use it as an endoscope! Do you know how cool (or gross depending on your perspective) it is to see up a kids (okay, okay fine……. or adult. I COULDN’T HELP myself!! I’ve always wondered what the doctor sees when they look there. Now I know!!) nose or in their or your ears? So cool!! The third way is to use the microscope as a USB web camera!
small but powerful microscope

The Husband uses this microscope for his coin collecting. You are able to zoom in tight and view the coins on the computer screen. It’s very cool! VERY helpful too!
Microscope

Talk about being able to bring the coins into crisp, clear focus!  WOW!! Actually everything comes in crisp and clean. It’s very impressive.

MicroscopeSo convenient!! microscope

Coin collectors can zoom in tight to confirm double taps or help look for some RARE coins like these:

  • 2004 Wisconsin state quarter with extra leaf.
  • 1995 double die penny.
  • 1942-1945 silver nickel.
  • 1943 steel penny.
  • Ben Franklin half-dollar.
  • 1932-1964 silver quarter.
  • ‘In God We Rust’ 2005 Kansas state quarter.

Now as far as 6-year-old Alice and I?  We check out way more interesting things! Bugs, dirt, ear and nose canals, mouths, hair! AND if you are trying to keep the same said 6-year-old from biting her nails show her the dirt and yucky things she is chewing on.

So because I do want you to come back I will not show you the pictures of the really gross things we look at. Let’s just say I am soooooo sorry to my doctor! My ears……… ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww REALLY ewwwwwwwwwwwww. I mean….. I had no idea ewwwwwwwww!

The microscope arrives with a heavy solid metal stand with rubber feet on the four corners so that the stand doesn’t mar the surface you set it up on. The microscope was easy to put together and arrives with several different attachments. microscope
