5 Ways to Integrate Wellness Into Your Hair Routine

Integrate Wellness Into Your Hair RoutineWhen I’m deep into my wellness game, one of the things I often overlook is my hair. Which is a big mistake huge! because hair is the ultimate accessory, one that you can’t remove (unless you’re Cara Delevigne). So, instead of disregarding my locks as I better my body and soul, I’m starting to integrate my mane into my wellness practice as well. If you want to join me, here are some ideas:

1. Mask while working out

If you’re hitting up a hot yoga or Soul Cycle class, double up your workout with a nourishing hair mask. Your hair will be sweaty already, so might as well multitask when the look of your hair doesn’t really matter. Plus, your body and hair will both feel 100% after! Some favorites include Ouai’s treatment masque, Gloss Moderne’s High Gloss Mask, and Kiehl’s Olive Fruit Oil Hair Pak.

2. Sweat for volume

I don’t know about you, but when my hair is clean, it’s at its worst-I’m more of a day two or three kinda girl. Luckily, I’ve developed a way to get there a littttle faster. It’s simple: If you must wash your hair, try doing so right before you workout (hot yoga excluded think light sweat workouts). The perspiration will help create volume and will bring texture to your ends, especially if it was in a top knot. And yes, this will require a second shower (sorryyy), but remember, it’s in the name of good hair!

3. Essential oils

I’m really into essential oils for all sorts of uses (more on that here) and as it turns out, there are a handful of benefits that directly benefit your hair. Next time you go to turn on your diffuser, consider rubbing some of these onto your scalp:

  1. Tea tree oil helps soothe a dry, itchy scalp
  2. Chamomile oil soothes an inflamed, itchy scalp
  3. Lemon oil helps with the management of dandruff
  4. Almond and castor oil help to promote hair growth

4. Supplements and food

I’m pretty conscientious about eating and drinking for my skin, but the truth is, there are lots of supplements and diet choices I could be making for my hair. Three ideas:

  1. Superfoods: A healthy balanced diet is reflected in your hair so eat up! Reach for foods with a solid mix of good fats, rich proteins, antioxidants and dense vitamin and mineral counts: almonds, salmon, walnuts, lentils, avocados, oats, sweet potatoes, carrots, pumpkin seeds, berries and leafy greens.
  2. The Beauty Chef’s COLLAGEN Inner Beauty Boost: To give you a daily shot of extra nutritional support, The Beauty Chef’s COLLAGEN Inner Beauty Boost is a delicious organic, bio-fermented probiotic concentrate designed to help combat cellular damage and support healthy skin, hair and nail growth
  3. Multi-vitamins: If you want to see your hair and nails grow faster try adding a multi-vitamin into your daily regimen for a boost.

5. Massage

Massaging your scalp is not only a great form of stress release but it can actually help stimulate hair growth. Next time you’re laying down, give your head a good rub, or better yet, ask your companion to do it for you!

We Found Gigi Hadid’s Ultimate Look-A-Like On Instagram

Gigi Hadid’s face is everywhere – seriously, have you seen her campaigns for Fendi, Versace, and Stuart Weitzman? At times, it seems like no other model is working. That’s why we did a double-take at up-and-coming plus-size swimwear line Alpine Butterfly’s Instagram feed, when we noticed a model who looked just like Gigi Hadid.

Though she looks like a dead ringer for the 22-year-old, the girl we stumbled upon is actually Iza IJzerman, a model and blogger based in The Netherlands. (Hadid’s mother, Yolanda, is from the small Dutch town of Papendrecht, so maybe there’s something in the water there?) Sure, there are some shots on the ‘gram where IJzerman favors Hadid more than others, but the foundation is there. She has the same blonde hair, striking blue eyes, and full pouty lips. She even has the same piercing stare and slight lip pucker down to a science. Oh, and she’s a fan of perching her sunglasses (tinted lenses, preferably) on the tip her nose. Sound familiar?

Turns out, we aren’t the only ones who noticed the uncanny difference. The first time someone mentioned it was on Instagram, IJzerman told Refinery29. When I signed with MiLK, they posted a picture with the caption ‘The new curvy Gigi Hadid,’ so that’s the moment I realized it might be true! And though she says she sees the resemblance when her hair is in a ponytail, she’s not totally convinced: I think I look more like Bella, she says.

This is certainly not the be there first time there was a model with a famous doppelganger (or in this case, two). Click through to see for yourself.

Janel Parrish Landed A Starring Role In To All The Boys I Loved Before

Pretty Little Liars star Janel Parrish’s days in Rosewood are over, but we’ll get to see her on the big screen in no time. Parrish is set to star in the movie adaptation of Jenny Han’s young adult novel To All the Boys I Loved Before and her role is an important step forward in Asian-American representation on screen.

If you haven’t read Han’s book, it’s the first novel in a trilogy about Lara Jean Song, a 16-year-old who writes love letters to every boy she’s ever had feelings for and stores them in a box. When that box falls into the wrong hands, things predictably go haywire.

Parrish will play Lara Jean’s older sister, Margot, who’s dating their next door neighbor.

“Janel was a fan favorite on Pretty Little Liars and I feel so lucky to have her – not only as an actress but as a person,” Han told Seventeen.com. “She is definitely the big sis of the group and every time I saw her interact with Lana and Anna [her co-stars], she was so lovely and generous with her time and her experience as an Asian American woman in the film industry. It’s so important to have mentors, people who you can go to for advice, who know how to navigate the waters. I can already tell that Janel will be that for Lana and Anna.”

Han also noted the film is particularly special to her because Asian-Americans are underrepresented in pop culture. In 2016, just 1% of Hollywood’s leading roles were played by Asian actors.

“It’s so rare to see Asian Americans on screen, and for me as the author, that was my number one priority,” Han said. “The last time I saw Asian American women centered in a movie was Joy Luck Club. That was 25 years ago! I didn’t want Asian American girls to have to wait another 25 years to see themselves as the star of a movie.”

To All The Boys I Loved Before has already begun filming and it looks like Parrish and her co-stars are having a blast. Han recently shared an adorable behind the scenes photo of herself, Parrish, Lana Condor, and Anna Cathcart.
