“Combine Puerto Rican rum with a raw egg. The rum contains honey and molasses, which quickly hydrates dry damaged hair. Be sure to rinse with cold water! Leave on one to two minutes.”—Kerry Joly, hairstylist for ABC

12 Things Women With Great Hair Do Every Day
“Don’t be afraid to do more than one shampoo—sometimes all you need is more water. For people who only wash their hair a few times a week, I recommend doing one quick shampoo first to just loosen up all the build-up in the hair, then go in and really scrub a second time.”—Siobhán Quinlan, stylist at Michael Angelo’s Wonderland Beauty Parlor
“Before rinsing out conditioner in the shower, I recommend using a broad flat paddle brush to gently brush hair from root to tip. Once you’ve detangled, easy brushing can happen; you always want to make sure you are taking every step necessary to prevent damage and ensure you’re properly caring for your hair.”—Danilo, Pantene celebrity stylist
“Try mixing mayonnaise, raw egg, and beer together for severely dry, damaged hair. Mayonnaise will give hair shine, and the raw egg and beer provide protein, which is great for strengthening the hair. The alcohol contains vitamin B, which adds shine.”—Kerry Joly, hairstylist for ABC
“To help hair grow healthier, opt for 3-4 Brazil nuts every day. You will see the difference in your hair within a few weeks.”—David Babaii, partner at Blo Blow Dry Bar
“For an oily, flaky scalp, use 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar or fresh lemon, 2 tablespoons distilled water, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil.”—Kerry Joly, hairstylist for ABC
“Coconut oil and castor oil are amazing. Both oils promote hair growth and health without weighing hair down—a small amount goes a long way and can be applied any time.”—Wellington Hair Spa
“A quick treatment you can do at home is using an entire egg to condition hair. [Editor’s note: Apparently eggs are what our hair’s been missing all these years?] Use egg whites to treat oily hair; use egg yolks to moisturize dry, brittle hair…

Tips to stop hair loss and thinning hair

– invisablend.com

Tips to stop hair loss and thinning hairThe sleek, bald look on male celebrities like Vin Diesel is considered highly attractive, and many men opt for this no-comb style, whether they have naturally thinning hair or not. Women, on the other hand, are adding extensions and using fortifying, body-boosting hair masks, shampoos and conditioners – whatever it takes to achieve those full, shiny tresses like Jessica Biel. While baldness is typically associated with men, you may be surprised to learn that 40 percent of all hair loss sufferers are women. Here’s what you need to know about stopping hair loss and keeping your luscious locks.

Hair loss is a reality for millions of women, so you’re not alone if you’ve noticed thinning patches or a receding hairline, even in your 30s. The onset of excessive hair loss or hair thinning over the scalp has many causes – and just as many high-profile treatment options, ranging from over-the-counter and prescriptive medications, to low level laser light therapy (LLLT) for hair re-growth.
Common myths about hair loss
Why do women lose their hair? Common misconceptions include wearing hats, washing your hair too often or, inevitably, you will lose your hair when you’re old and there is no cure, says Tiffany Masiello-Helt, a certified managing cosmetologist with Precision, a clinic in Cleveland, OH, for hair restoration.
“The facts are not nearly as sensationalistic – the myths can actually be dispelled by understanding exactly what hair loss is,” Masiello-Helt says. She has worked in the industry for almost 20 years to help clients repair thinning hair.
Too much DHT causes hair loss
Baldness in both men and women is caused by a single chemical called DHT, a by-product of the hormone testosterone. Too much DHT inhibits the cells of your hair follicles from receiving necessary nutrients. Because of DHT’s connection with testosterone, more men are susceptible to hair loss. However, since women produce both female and male hormones, they are at risk as well.
“Your hair literally begins to starve to death. When a hair follicle starts down this road, you may notice texture changes, brittleness and then the hair shaft begins to shrink, reducing in length and diameter until it seems to disappear,” she explains. The last stage of hair loss occurs when the follicle goes completely dormant and stays that way. No hair will grow from that follicle again.
Excess DHT is genetic, she says, so if your parents have lost their hair, you may be at risk as well. Age comes into play, but if you don’t start losing your hair until you’re older, it only means that it took many years for your genetic predisposition to DHT sensitivity to activate.
Hair loss is different for women
Men go bald in the same pattern, a thinning hair line that moves to the top of the head, often leaving the back intact (oh, yes, we know that look!). Women can lose hair gradually all over the head. Women are also susceptible to certain diseases, such as polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), where hair loss is a symptom…

Pin It: The Jillian Michaels Circuit Workout

– health.com

It’s not much of a stretch to say that nobody knows how to build power, speed, strength, and flexibility better than Jillian Michaels. This comprehensive workout, which she created for Health, trains the muscles in a way that will bust through even the most persistent plateau. Do it four times a week, paired with 20 minutes of high-intensity interval training, and watch your body be transformed. Go back to the full workout

Stand Up for Your Health

– www.health.com

Are you sitting down? Perfect. Please take a moment to check in with your body. Is your rear kind of numb? Do the backs of your thighs feel smushed? Is your lower back all crunched? This is your body crying out for help! Really.A wave of new research indicates that sitting all day is actively damaging your health. By forcing a body designed for movement to hold a crushingly immobile position, sitting strains muscles, slows your metabolism, increases your risk of heart disease, and even shortens your life span. “Sitting is a health hazard on the order of smoking,” says Marc Hamilton, PhD, a microbiologist at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center. I was once like you: I sat 10 to 11 hours a day. And then, in 2008, I was researching an article about newfangled chairs and learned that few of the designers actually sat on chairs because of the ill effects on their health. Tired of that glommed-up, dull feeling I got at my desk, I shoved my chair to the side and tried a standing desk. Over the next six months, I slowly rid my home of chairs. I couldn’t believe how my body responded. My back pain disappeared, along with my poor posture. And 15 pounds nearly fell off my frame. Need more incentives? Here’s why over-sitting must—and can—be stopped. Sitting makes you fatWhen you park your butt in a chair, your metabolism comes to a screeching halt. It’s all because of an enzyme called lipoprotein lipase, which resides in the blood vessels of your muscles. “Lipoprotein lipase captures fat in the blood and incinerates it,” says Hamilton. When you’re standing, the postural muscles that support your weight, mostly in your legs, release the enzyme, which goes to work burning fat. But when you’re sitting still, and not shifting every 30 to 90 seconds as the body does naturally, “the fat stays in the arteries, and can be stored in adipose tissue—also known as body fat,” Hamilton explains.A typical day of sitting lowers lipoprotein lipase activity by 90 to 95% (in animals), which is why when Hamilton takes blood samples of his human subjects while they’re sitting and eating, the plasma—ideally clear—is white and chunky, filled with fat, the sign of a sluggish metabolism. Worse yet, experts say that 60 to 90 minutes of daily exercise may not counteract the effects of sitting all day. In fact, Hamilton says, the biochemical reactions slowed by sitting are completely different from the ones that are activated by your daily workout. The biggest difference between thin and fat people is not how much they eat or exercise, but how much they sit, according to James Levine, MD, an obesity researcher at the Mayo Clinic.In a now famed 2005 study, Dr. Levine placed mildly obese and lean participants with similar, fairly healthy diets in sensored “magic” underwear that recorded their body position every half second. The thin people spent a whopping 120 fewer minutes every day sitting, and the overweight people would have burned an average of 350 more calories if they’d engaged in as many non-exercise-related activities (i…

Weight Loss Success Story: "I Lost 96 Pounds"

– health.com

Suheily Rodriguez27, 5’7″North Wales, Penn.Before: 236 lb., size 18After: 140 lb., size 2Total pounds lost: 96 lb.Sizes lost: 8 Growing up Puerto Rican, I ate meals that were mainly rice-based and filled with fried plantains and pernil (roast pork). My saving grace: I was active—a cheerleader and a gymnast. But once I graduated from high school, the number on the scale shot up. Two pregnancies later, I weighed 236 pounds. The worst part: I couldn’t walk for long without my ankles and knees throbbing. Still, it wasn’t until I saw the few photos I was unable to dodge from a trip to Puerto Rico in December 2011 that I was forced to confront my size; it was staring me right in the face. Though I had tried and failed to lose weight before, I decided to give a healthy lifestyle a go one last time. No more drive-throughs Starting in March 2012, I cut back on carbs, eliminating my daily helpings of rice, bread and pasta. Then I added more fruit and vegetables to my diet. I also traded in fast-food stops for home-cooked meals, feasting on spring-mix salads topped with chicken breast, salmon or tilapia every day. Within three months, I knocked off 10 pounds. Next I got a handle on my portions, serving my meals on my son’s mini plates. Home-gym slim Thirty pounds lighter, I was ready to sweat. The problem: I was too embarrassed to go to a gym. So I built a home one, where I exercised an hour a day six days a week. I dropped another 25 pounds by September. Just as exciting, I was able to fit into size 6 jeans! This motivated me to kick up my training intensity. I started using ankle weights while on the treadmill and when doing leg exercises. That really helped me firm up. One year after committing to getting fit, I reached my goal. Even better, I no longer want to hide when a camera comes out. Secrets of a 96-pound loser A doable diet and exercise plan were the keys to Suheily’s makeover. Try her tactics, and find even more at health.com/weight-loss-stories. Flat-belly trick: Eat yogurt When I have more Greek yogurt (I like Yoplait’s tropical flavors), even for just a week, my tummy is instantly flatter. Fitspiration: Massiel arias I stumbled across her on Instagram (@mankofit). She posts great workouts and fitness challenges. Workout must: Electronic dance I listen to Tiesto’s podcasts; the fast pace makes me push harder. Go-to meal: Kimchi jjigae It’s a Korean stew made of kimchi, tofu, chili pepper, pork belly, red pepper paste, sesame oil and scallions, and it’s pretty low-cal, too.

This, I believe, is the central question upon which all creative living hinges: Do you have the courage to bring forth the treasures that are hidden within you?Look, I don’t know what’s hidden within you. You yourself may barely know, although I suspect you’ve caught glimpses. I don’t know your capacities, your aspirations, your longings, your secret talents. But surely something wonderful is sheltered inside you. I say this with all confidence, because I happen to believe we are all walking repositories of buried treasure. I believe this is one of the oldest and most generous tricks the universe plays on us human beings, both for its own amusement and for ours: The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them.RELATED: Find Your Ultimate Happiness The hunt to uncover those jewels—that’s creative living. The courage to go on that hunt in the first place—that’s what separates a mundane existence from a more enchanted one.The often surprising results of that hunt—that’s what I call Big Magic.When I talk about “creative living” here, please understand that I am not necessarily talking about pursuing a life that is professionally or exclusively devoted to the arts. When I refer to “creative living,” I am speaking more broadly. I’m talking about living a life that is driven more strongly by curiosity than by fear.One of the coolest examples of creative living that I’ve seen in recent years, for instance, came from my friend Susan, who took up figure skating when she was 40 years old. To be more precise, she actually already knew how to skate. She had competed in figure skating as a child, but she’d quit the sport during adolescence when it became clear she didn’t have quite enough talent to be a champion.RELATED: 12 Worst Habits For Your Mental Health For the next quarter of a century, Susan did not skate. Then she turned 40. She was restless. She felt drab and heavy. She asked herself when was the last time she’d felt truly light, joyous and—yes—creative in her own skin. To her shock, she realized that the last time she’d experienced such feelings had been as a teenager, back when she was still figure skating. She was appalled to discover that she had denied herself this life-affirming pursuit for so long, and she was curious to see if she still loved it.So she followed her curiosity. She bought a pair of skates, found a rink, hired a coach. She ignored the voice within her that told her she was being self-indulgent and preposterous to do this crazy thing. She tamped down her feelings of extreme self-consciousness at being the only middle-aged woman on the ice, with all those tiny, feathery nine-year-old girls.She just did it.Three mornings a week, Susan awoke before dawn and went skating. And she skated and skated and skated. And yes, she loved it, even more than ever, perhaps, because now, as an adult, she finally had the perspective to appreciate the value of her own joy…
