I am the worst about neglecting my hair. I take so much time and effort to take care of my skin and feed my body healthy foods, but when it comes to my hair I just forget about feeding it what it needs. Over the past few months the cold weather has been pretty harsh on my fine, thin hair- I think this is why I decided to take action. I was tired of lifeless hair that only looked good in an up-do. So very thankful for Hair Food's Nourishing Coconut Milk & Chai Collection!  The shampoo and conditioner adds moisture, shine, and leaves my hair feeling SO SOFT. I love the fact that Hair Food is paraben and sulfate free, plus it was created by hair stylists and nutritionists so that you are feeding your tresses what they need. 

What it doesn't have: 
Sulfates
Parabens 
Phthalates 
Mineral Oil

To further help my hair stay healthy and grow I have been going longer between washes, using less heat styling, and drinking more water. I wash my hair two to three times a week and I make sure to condition it each time, sometimes doing a deep conditioning by leaving the product in for 10-15 minutes before rinsing. Shampooing less also helps reduce itching and flakiness usually caused in winter months. To reduce heat styling I try to let my hair dry naturally and then do touch ups with my curling wand. I have noticed the biggest difference since doing these two simple things. Drinking water seems to be the cure for everything, doesn't it?? But it seriously helps with dry scalp, hair growth, and reduced hair loss. 

PS: I wish there was a scratch and sniff option through our screens because the smell is out of this world! I have never been so tempted to taste a beauty product in my life 😂🙈

Coffee Protein Smoothie

Feb 6, 2019

It's late afternoon. You've already had your lunch. And your second coffee was hours ago- no trace of that caffeine left in our system. You're getting hangrier by the minute. You need energy, like now. Story of my life! In the afternoons when I need a snack and a pick-me-up, I like to make this smoothie because it combines the two. It's filling, tasty, and gives me just the pep I need when I start to drag. I use vegan chocolate protein, but it is also good with vanilla. The ingredients below yield just enough for an afternoon 'snack', but if you were to sub this drink for a meal I would double the ingredients- especially if you are having it for breakfast because a half cup of coffee isn't going to last very long 😉

Ingredients: 

1/2 banana (I freeze mine)
1/2 cup cold brew or iced coffee
1/4 cup almond milk
1 tsb almond or peanut butter
1/2 cup ice
1 scoop protein (what I use is linked below)

Blend and enjoy!
