Shaving is never a good option for hair removal! Shaving can cause cuts and razor bumps, and make your skin look discolored and bumpy, gross! Instead, try an alternate hair removal option like waxing, or laser hair removal if that's in your price range.


Washing your hair everyday with shampoo is actually causing more harm than good. This can actually make your hair dry and brittle, causing more breakage and split ends. The reason why this happens is because you're washing out all of your hair's natural oils, causing your hair to become dehydrated. Instead, try washing your hair about every other day.

brushing hair

Brushing wet hair after showering can cause more breakage and split ends. Your hair is more prone to damage when wet, so brushing tough knots out of it while it's damp will only cause your hair to split and tear! Wait for your hair to dry before brushing it, or brush it in the shower with some conditioner so knots become easier to brush out.


Not moisturizing the second you get out of the shower is costing your skin essential moisture needed for a glowing, healthy look! The water begins to evaporate off your skin the minute you turn the water off, and the longer you wait to moisturize the more water leaves your skin! Try using a moisturizer within three minutes of stepping out of the shower to make sure you get the most moisture for your skin.
