Healthy Hair for Men and Women-Split Ends

Do you guys remember we discussed split ends in Simple Steps for Long Hair, but now we are going to take one step further. In this post we are going to cover Healthy Hair for Men and Women-Split Ends.

 

Healthy Hair for Men and Women-Split Ends by Diverse Beauty

Split ends is one of many problems faced by individuals who have long hair (men and women) and improper can can damage hair.

  • Harsh Drying
  • Quick Brushing/Combing
  • Exposure to Chemicals/Environment
  • Rough Washing
  • Weather Changes

These are just few examples, but there are various ways our hair can get damaged and grow brittle. So we have decided to focus next on how to grow healthy hair by changing few ways we go with our daily lives and habits.

Today we are going to speak about split ends and ways to treat, remove and prevent them. Please keep in mind there is no one name of any magical product! Also remember that each individual has different characteristic and each hair growth/treatment is different and have different reactions.

When faced with split ends:

  • Get your hair cut on the regular basis—every six to eight weeks.
  • Trust your a professional hairdresser—please do not try to do it yourself
  • Try to trim damaged ends only—about 1/4″ above the split of a single strand

In our next post we will discuss and explain Prevention of Split Ends!

Bad Breath Etiquette

Hi Friends,

As you noticed we have finely discussed various points of bad breath such as: reasons of bad breath, curing bad breath, bad breath home remedies, and now finally we would like to discuss bad breath etiquette.

We hope this helps you, because we are quite aware of challenges that come with looking beautiful!

Q. How to inform my coworker that s/he has bad breath without permanent damage?

A. This is very common question asked by many people, but few of them can clearly communicate the message to their colleagues. It’s a challenge to effectively address without doing any permanent damage to your colleague’s ego, your relationship with him/her, or both. To make it worse if the colleague is your boss- there’s not much you can do about it without putting your career at risk.

  1. Casually offer some gum, mints, or breath strips. If s/he says, “No, thanks,” don’t give up.
  2. Make the suggestion the next day and again in a week or so. (But please don’t push it too much) —If this doesn’t work-try different strategy.
  3. Limit interactions with the colleague
  4. If you cannot do step #3 than you have to confront the issue

Please note don’t be rude or mean when confronting the colleague regarding bad breath. Remember they may or may not know and also please keep in mind they may or may not have tried various steps, but they may or may not have faced success in getting rid of the bad breath.

Be a listener and a friend to them by not blaming them but making sure that they can count on you to support them. It is extremely important if they know that you are their, it can create strong relationships, trust, and believe it or not it can provide motivation both ways!

Q. How to inform my friend/date that s/he has bad breath without permanent damage?

A. There are several things you can do, it really depends on what level of trust and relationship you are with the individual(s). Best way to go about is:

  • Offer gums/mints
  • Tea
  • Share personal “bad breath” moments about yourself

When you do these steps in any order, the person will realize without being offended and may also feel thankful that you mentioned to them, without embarrassing them.

Any more questions, you know how to contact us!
