Turn Your Passion for Beauty into a Career

You love all things beauty – from nails to lashes, massage to makeup and everything in between. For you, beauty isn’t a chore – it’s second nature. You’re up to date with all the latest fashions and styles and will always be the first to volunteer to do your friend’s makeup for a big night out. Beauty is your passion.




So, in the world of work, what could be better than pursuing your passion and making it your career? Passion is a funny thing – what really gets you going and fired up at the very thought could be another person’s idea of an insignificant pastime. But that’s the beautiful thing about following our dreams and desires, we’re not out to gratify the world, we’re out to please ourselves – we should pursue our passions.


We’ve all, at one time or another, been guilty of proclaiming ‘I’m going to change’, ‘I’m going to pursue this’, ‘this is what I want to do!’ – but all too soon our declaration is forgotten. Once again our dreams are put on hold; shoved to the bottom of the pile, the rest of life taking priority.


And we do this time and time again, even if this means dealing with the day-to-day grind of a lackluster job, which pays the bills but doesn’t satisfy our thirst for something more meaningful, something that we are more passionate about.


In the words of Steve Knox – ‘shut up and act’ – this is the only way to ensure that we prioritise our own dreams and stop putting our own lives on hold. Enough of the talk, it’s time to do something.


According to David Lucatch, the people who he has seen as having the most success in both their work and personal lives are the most passionate, who have a read ‘zeal and zest’ for their work and people. He goes on to say that there are three main reasons as to why passionate people tend to be more successful in their endeavours, these are:


  • ‘Passion fuels confidence’
  • ‘Passion creates excitement’
  • ‘Passion is contagious’


So, passion is clearly a key motivator in those who do well within the workplace and in motivating other around them. It enables progression, confidence and excitement in the workplace – but how do you transform your passion for all things beauty into a career?

Best Hair Oils for Hair Growth

Believe it or not our natural hair goes through a lot of strain. Harsh chemicals from hair care products, constant styling and environmental changes can really affect our natural hair growth. When you add stress from work, school or family life and a poor diet or eating habits, it’s not surprising why hair loss is slowly becoming a major concern.




Thankfully, nature has come to the rescue. It has been discovered that natural oils contain potential elements like vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that can add life, lustre and shine to our hair. Of course, these natural oils work excellently for hair growth as well as providing additional benefits. The best part about these oils is that they are completely natural. So, no need to worry about your hair being damaged by harsh chemicals or horrible side effects.

Here are some of the natural oils that you should get your hands on if you want to have beautiful long hair.


  1. Olive oil

Extracted from the olive fruit, olive oil has been known for centuries for its amazing health benefits. Olive oil is rich in vitamin E which does wonders to moisturize your hair and scalp and sealing in the moisture. This gives the hair the right environment to grow healthily.

Olive oil also helps to prevent DTH Hormone production. The DTH hormone is the one that causes the hair follicle shaft to narrow. When this happens your hair thins out and loses its lustre.




When shopping around for olive oil make sure you go for high quality virgin or extra virgin olive oil to get the best results for your hair.


  1. Coconut Oil

I am a huge fan of coconut oil. I love the fact that it is so versatile. I like to have a few jars of coconut oil in my house.

Just like olive oil, it helps to moisturize your hair. The fatty acids contained in the coconut promote hair growth. It does that by working with the natural proteins in your hair to strengthen and protect it from breaking.

When you massage the oil on your scalp, it boosts blood circulation. This makes the blood vessels on your scalp come to life, making it easier for the nutrients in your blood flow to the hair follicles and promote hair growth.

Consistent application of coconut oil will make your hair thicker, healthier and longer.


  1. Almond oil

Although used for aroma therapy, almond oil does wonders for the hair.  The vitamins in Almond oil helps to strengthen, nourish and smoothen the hair. The Vitamin E contained in almond oil makes it an excellent hair conditioner, leaving your hair nice and soft.

Almond oil also penetrates deep into the hair follicle providing the hair cuticles the needed nutrients to keep it strong and promote hair growth.


  1. Avocado oil

We hear a lot about avocados being used for facials but it works just as well on our hair too. Avocado is a conditioner and it helps to restore moisture to your hair. It gives your hair the needed strength and lustre to make your hair grow faster and healthier.





How to Apply the Natural Oils

Those were just some of the amazing natural oils that help with hair growth. Now you need to know how to apply it correctly to get the  best results. The steps are quite simple and they work for almost any natural oil.


Step 1: Warm the oil

Natural oils are more effective when they are warm. All you have to do is pour a dollop of oil in your palm and rub your hands together to warm the oil.


Step #2: Massage your scalp with the oil

The target is your scalp. That’s where the growth happens. Use your finger tips to massage the oil in, then spread the excess oil on your hair, most especially the tips. The tips of your hair are the driest so you’ll need to make sure it gets some oil to keep it moist.


Step #3: Wrap your hair with a warm towel

This will give the oil time to penetrate into the hair follicles and deep condition your hair. You can leave your hair covered for 15-20 minutes or even overnight to give you maximum results.


Step #4: Wash thoroughly

Wash out all the oil from your hair using warm water and your favourite shampoo. Once well washed, air dry your hair or pat with a towel.
