Deep Conditioning Mask for Silky Hair

Ingredients Avocado (half) 1 Banana 3 tablespoons of almond milk 2 tablespoons of maple syrup 3 tablespoons of olive oil Follow these steps to make your hair mask: 1) Mash together your avocado and the banana into your small bowl, using your fork until the mix looks nice and even. 2) Throw in the maple syrup, almond milk and olive oil, and stir well until these ingredients have blended nicely into the remedy. 3) Start applying the mask now girl! Try and use a comb to ensure the mask is evenly spread all through your hair. 4) You’re not going to like this, but you gotta leave it in for at least 15 minutes before washing off with a natural nourishing shampoo ONLY! Using a regular shampoo could undo all the good work, removing the nutrients you just supplied to your hair. Also try not to use a straightener for 24 hours after application as that again will undo all the good work from the mask! For best results apply this mask every two weeks to help restore any unwanted damage.

The Meaning Behind Anime Hair Colors
For the longest time I've always wondered why Sailor Moon's hair is yellow while Sailor Mercury's hair is blue. Initially I thought it represented the planets they're associated with. However, after digging deeper into Japanese animation I found out hair color is frequently used as a mechanism to differentiate character type and personality. Black Characters with black hair usually have a strong sense of justice.They can be friendly and angry at the same time. Despite, their mysterious nature they are loyal and would do anything for their friends. Personality: Traditional, bipolar and a deep thinker.

Personality: Smart, introverted, and mature Red Just like the color, characters with red hair are hot blooded. Most of the time they are feisty and adventurous.

Meatless Monday Recipe: Quick & Easy Pad Thai Spring Rolls
Making pad thai at home is deceptively easy, but making spring rolls is ridiculously fun! Combine both, and you have the pad thai tofu spring rolls below - a quick and creative meal you'll definitely find yourself making more than once. You should be able to find spring roll paper, tamarind, and chili garlic sauce in the ethnic food aisle of your local supermarket and most Asian grocers. 10-Ingredient Pad Thai Spring Rolls (Adapted From Minimalist Baker) MAKES 8 ROLLS INGREDIENTS: For The Spring Rolls - 14 ounces extra firm tofu 8 ounces white or brown rice noodles 8 - 10 white or brown rice spring roll papers 2 cups thinly sliced carrots 1 large handful fresh cilantro For The Sauce - 3 tablespoons tamarind concentrate 3 tablespoons tamari or soy sauce + more for tofu 3 - 4 tablespoons coconut sugar, agave, or maple syrup 1/2 lime, juiced 1 - 2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce + more for tofu For Serving (Optional) - Peanut sauce (Check out my Vegan DIY: Thai Peanut Sauce recipe card.) Sriracha Directions: 1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Wrap tofu in a clean towel. Set something heavy on top - such as a cast iron pan - to press out liquid for 15 minutes. Then cut into 1/2-inch wide rectangular strips. 2) Arrange tofu on the baking sheet, giving each piece some space so it can firm up. Bake for 28 - 30 minutes to dry and firm the tofu. For softer tofu, bake for 20 minutes. For firmer, bake for 30 - 35 minutes. Set aside. In the meantime, prep carrots, cilantro, and cook rice noodles according to package instructions, then drain and set aside. 3) To make the sauce, add tamarind, tamari, coconut sugar, lime and chili garlic sauce to a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Once it begins bubbling, lower heat to low and cook for 3 - 4 minutes, stirring frequently.Taste and adjust seasonings as needed, adding more tamari or soy sauce for saltiness, chili garlic for heat, coconut sugar, agave, or maple syrup for sweetness, or lime for acidity. Remove from heat and set aside. 4) Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add baked tofu and 1 teaspoon each chili garlic sauce and tamari or soy sauce, plus 1 tablespoon of the Pad Thai sauce. SautΓ©, stirring frequently, for 1 - 2 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside. 5) Add cooked noodles to the still-hot pan over medium heat and add remaining Pad Thai sauce. Use tongs to disperse sauce and toss noodles. Cook for 1 - 2 minutes, then remove from heat and set aside. 6) Assemble a station for preparing the spring rolls with a shallow bowl or plate (for dunking the rice paper), bring a kettle or pot of water to a boil (to cook the rice paper with), and a clean work surface (such as a large cutting board). Gather all ingredients and add hot water to the shallow bowl or pan. Let it cool for 1-2 minutes, then add 1 rice paper at a time and cook/soften for 45 seconds to 1 minute. Lift and let excess water drip off, then transfer to your clean work surface. 7) Top with pad thai noodles, tofu, carrots and cilantro, then roll over once, tuck in sides, and continue rolling all the way up. Place seam-side down on a serving plate or baking sheet and cover with a damp, room temperature towel to keep fresh. Continue until all spring rolls are prepared - about 8. 8) Serve as is with a bit more chili garlic sauce or sriracha! Another great addition is the aforementioned peanut sauce posted above. Best when fresh, though leftovers keep covered in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.

Green Tea Smoothies – Delicious, Healthy, and Help You Lose Weight
Celebrate summer with these yummy green tea smoothies! They're packed with seasonal fruit and all the nutrients your body needs, helping you eat smart and achieve your health goals. Researchers at Purdue University found that you stay fuller longer when you drink thick beverages like smoothies; replacing meals with smoothies ups your chance of losing weight and keeping it off for more than a year. Even if weight loss isn't one of your goals, drinking smoothies can help you sneak in more raw fruits and veggies into your diet. My dad, who's a total health nut, will throw everything from kale to tomatoes to raw beets into his VitaMix – but shockingly, you'd never know it! Using a little peanut butter, cinnamon, sweetened yogurt, or ripe strawberries can really mask the taste of less traditional ingredients. Why Green Tea? Green tea contains catechin polyphenols, which Swiss researchers have found significantly increase your body's metabolism of fat – meaning you burn more, faster. In addition, green tea contains less caffeine than coffee, which, coupled with the nutrients provided by other ingredients, will give you long lasting, non-jittery energy, unlike the buzz-crash-repeat vicious cycle of coffee. Give one (or all!) of these green tea smoothies a try – you won't be disappointed! Green Tea Goddess Smoothie 3 cups frozen green grapes 2 cups baby spinach, packed 1 1/2 cups strong brewed green tea, cooled 1 medium ripe avocado 2 teaspoons honey (or agave syrup) Avocados are packed with oleic acid, a healthy fat that's great for your heart. Plus, they've got more potassium than bananas, making them excellent supporters of healthy blood pressure levels. Source: Eating Well Blueberry Green Tea Smoothie 3/4 cups green tea 2 cups frozen blueberries 12 oz. nonfat vanilla yogurt 20 whole almonds, unsalted and dry-roasted 2 tbsp. ground flax seeds Almonds are high in magnesium, iron, calcium, and protein, as well as healthy fats that may help you lose weight, and certainly support a healthy heart and low cholesterol! Source: Food Antioxidant-Rich Berry Matcha Smoothie 1/4 cup frozen blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries (or a mix of all three!) 1/2 cup yogurt 1/2 cup ice 1 tsp. matcha powder Add some mango, kiwi, ginger, or a few fresh mint leaves to make this even yummier! Source: MatchaSource Mango Green Tea Smoothie 1/2 cup green tea 1/2 cup fat-free Greek yogurt 1 cup mango chunks, fresh or frozen 3-5 ice cubes Mango is one of my favorite fruits, and protein-packed Greek yogurt will keep you full and focused for hours! Source: Joy Bauer Cinnamon Honey Green Tea Smoothie 1/2 cup green tea, chilled 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk 1 tsp. cinnamon 1 tbsp. honey 1/2 banana Like green tea, cinnamon has great metabolism-boosting properties. At only 139 calories, this low-cal concoction is better as a snack than a meal replacement. Source: Popsugar A Few Tips: Use frozen fruit. It's cheaper, easier to store, won't go bad, AND might even have more antioxidants than the fresh fruit you find in the supermarket, since it's picked and frozen at peak ripeness. To brew strong green tea, use two tea bags – but don't oversteep. Oversteeping can give your tea a bitter flavor that other ingredients might not succeed in masking.
Save Your Hair From Color Damage
I was looking through pictures of girl groups hairstyles within a year their hair could change up to 4-5 times. Regular people like myself will probably get their hair done 1-2 times a year. I guess one reason to explain the short lifespan of their hairstyles is kpop fans expect the idols to look different for new comeback and concept. So, before dropping any announcement, Hairstyle is usually one of the biggest hint for comebacks. Truth is their hair must be extremely damage from the excessive use of chemical and heat styling. However, they are celebrities and they must have hair professionals to maintain the health of their hair. Otherwise, we'll be staring at limpy hair, and split ends on stage. Celebrity Hair Secrets: 1. Protein mask. This is normally used to strengthen the hair before styling. 2. Hair serum and oil. A dollop of this will quickly give your hair shine and moisture. 3. Supplements. No matter how many products you use you need to get enough nutrients to maintain over health and beauty. For those of you who color your hair or use heat styling tool often these are the products that can help keep your hair healthy. Nutiva Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Best for dry and damaged hair. Coconut oil is packed with moisturizing benefits. if your strands are extremely dry you can leave this on overnight then wash your hair in the morning to get glossy, healthy hair. Nexus Emergencee Reconstructing Treatment. The texture for this hair pack is really unique. It is gel-like but if you apply it before your hair washing routine you'll end up with super soft hair. Olaplex Hair Perfector No.3. Olaplex is the best hair treatment for pre and post hair coloring. Professional colorist will use it in the coloring process.

Healthy Strawberry Chia Watermelon Smoothie
Cold and refreshing, sweet and tart, with a twist of lime for freshness – this vegan, gluten-free smoothie is a perfect (and healthy!) summer treat, complete with chia seeds, which I probably don't need to tell you are a nutritional GOLD MINE. Chia seeds are packed with fiber and antioxidants. They're a good source of protein, and gram for gram, have more Omega-3 fatty acids than salmon. It's no coincidence that "chia" means "strength" – ancient Mayans and Aztecs prized this tiny seed for its sustainable energy.

7 Ideas to Upgrade Your Hair
Two times in a year I would switch up my hairstyle, at the end of December and mid-June. December is understandable. New year, new hair! If you think about it 12 months is a really long time. June is the perfect month to get a brief makeover to freshen up for the rest of the year. Whenever you're ready, here are some cool ideas to switch up your hair. 1. Wig Not sure if you notice but in recent years wigs is rising in popularity. Part of the reason is Kylie Jenner has made wig a thing. In addition, Ladies don't want to damage their hair by changing their hair color every other month. Therefore, wig is a cheaper and safer option to look fab, minus all the mess. 2. Extensions Wigs can be bulky and some people just hate wearing a helmet of hair over their own hair. Hair extensions is another solution to obtain new color without the use of dyes. The great thing about extension is you have full control of placement and style. The option is endless, so be creative! 3. Temporary Hair Color This option is for those of you who don't like having anything on your hair. There are products like temporary hair color rinses, chalk hair, eye shadow hair that will go away in one wash. No commitment but it does take some work. 4. Traditional Color Change You can always rely on the good old method of coloring your hair. Box formula can give you instant results without having to book an appointment or spend a lot of cash. However, professional color service will give you gorgeous and more long-lasting results. Highlights such as ombre and sombre are styles you might want to opt for this summer. 5. Smart Haircut If you want to get your hair short but don't want to go all in, take baby steps. It's okay to have an evolving haircut. Start getting a few inches and then go shorter until your desired final cut. Experiment and see what works for you! 6. Texture Change Long hair can be annoying during summer and you might be considering to trim it. However, if you want to keep the length but is bored with your current hair you can try changing the texture. It's easy to give your hair new looks. Simply use heating tools, braids, or twists. The best part, it works on any hair length. 7. Bangs This is a subtle yet big change to any hair. One little trim can alter your entire style. You don't have to commit to it right away. You can always test it out with faux bang clip-in.
