Natural Hair Transition with SheaMoisture

If you have been reading Fashion and Style Police for some time, you would know all about my natural hair transition. I decided to go natural some months ago but I didn’t want to down the big chop route. So I had to grow out natural hair, while cutting off the dead hair tips gradually. It took a while but I am happy to say my hair is now fully natural.

I would be lying if I said growing my hair natural was a walk in the park. It wasn’t. Getting my hair to this stage has not been easy. It took a lot of hard work and determination to get here. And my hair is still a work in progress.

I felt like giving up so many times along the way. My hair is a 4C and it is very coarse, so it is hard to manage. However, but I am happy I didn’t. I am very confident with my hair now. I am show it off proudly and it is just growing like weed, which is amazing.

In my transition, I have used so many hair products. A few of them I won’t use again and many I would continue using. I recently came across the SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl and Shine Range. This range is great for my thick hair. I am loving it so far.

I am a huge fan of the SheaMoisture brand. If you scroll through my natural hair transition posts, you would see me raving about 1 SheaMoisture range or the other. The products are great for natural hair and I believe they have helped in my hair growth. This Coconut & Hibiscus Curl and Shine range is no exception. I love all the products in this range, especially the SheaMoisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie, which I have used before. The products keep my hair clean and moisturised. I will be shopping this range in future.

You can get this products in Boots stores, Amazon, eBay and other beauty stores.

Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery Still Banned for Men?

Are cosmetic and plastic surgery still banned for men? If you analyze information from various sources about the topic of cosmetic surgery, it’s almost always targeted toward women who want to enhance their appearance. In previous decades, plastic surgery for men has been somewhat of a taboo act. However, current statistics indicate that this trend may be changing rapidly. Men are still in the minority of patients who seek cosmetic procedures. However, more men than ever before are showing an active interest in these procedures. There are a wide variety of reasons that we seem to be experiencing a lifting of the male cosmetic surgery taboo .

Below, we will discuss some of the reasons this is changing and what it might mean for male plastic surgery patients in the coming years. If you’re considering plastic surgery as a male, you’re not alone in your interest regarding these procedures.

 

Workplace Discrimination Affects Men Too

Men looking to fight age-related discrimination in the workplace are sometimes turning to cosmetic surgery. They are also turning to minimally invasive procedures such as Botox to turn back the hands of time. While we typically think of ageism and workplace discrimination based on appearance as primarily a female-centered issue, it affects men too.  As more men have high-profile careers where they remain in the public eye for extended periods of time, they too can be affected by derogatory remarks or even demotions related to showing signs of aging. Botox injections and other cosmetic enhancing procedures are being sought out by men who want to remain competitive in the workplace.

 

Men are Now Retiring at Later Ages

While plastic surgery icontinues to be a primarily female-centered arena, a growing portion of the male population are not ashamed to say they’re interested in these procedures too. Part of the reason for some men is that they plan to retire at a much older age than their past generations. By continuing to work much later in life, some men feel an increased need to counteract the signs of aging.

 

Men Display Growing Interest in Cosmetic Procedures

Since 2010, there’s been an almost 20% increase in the number of men who have shown an interest in Facelift Procedures . It appears that men view these procedures in much the same light as going to the gym or consuming a healthy diet. It’s all about men’s growing interest in taking care of themselves in a physical sense. Which leads to the desire of maintaining a youthful appearance for a longer period of time. Simply put, the aesthetic desires of men are really not that different from those of women. Men want to feel good in their own skin and be accepted based on their outward appearance. Both men and women alike appreciate feeling young and attractive in a strictly physical sense.

Cosmetic Procedures are More Socially Acceptable Today

Whether we are referring to men or women, the fact of the matter is that cosmetic procedures simply aren’t frowned upon to the degree that they used to be in the recent past. Part of this is likely due to the influence of Hollywood stars. They have been open and honest about their own cosmetic procedures. And what these procedures have done to enhance their lives. In times past, a patient would undergo a cosmetic procedure and hide away until healing had taken place. Thanks to advancements, patients can now go in for their procedure in the morning and be out in the evening.

Statistics indicate that almost 10% of cosmetic procedures performed during 2011 were completed on men. While this may seem like a low number, this figure actually demonstrates an increase of over 120% over previous years. More men are working in high-profile careers where they place a great deal of importance on their physical appearance. Additionally, men are working longer before retiring than they have in the past. Which means that they have a growing interest in procedures that can keep them looking young and fresh.

Plastic surgery has been a primarily female dominated field of interest in Europe, Sydney and most parts of the world. However, we are seeing a steady change in terms of a lessening of the taboo. As we continue seeing this exciting shift in trends, we are sure to see more men reaping the benefits of cosmetic surgical procedures.

Drinkable Skincare? What’s Next?

I have always taken my skincare routine seriously and made sure that I used the right products for my skin. I did go through a lot of trial and error as I came across products that negatively affected my skin.

I’m always on a lookout for products that will provide the best results for my skin with little or no side effects. Which is why I keep a close eye on the latest developments in the beauty industry.

Drinkable Skincare

Recently, I have noticed a trend to embrace a holistic approach to skincare. Taking care of your skin doesn’t end at applying creams, cleansers or oils. Beautiful skin can also be achieved from the inside out. In fact, we have been neglecting that part of our skincare regime.

Nutricosmetics is the latest development in the beauty industry. Imagine eating or drinking your way to healthy, supple and magnificent skin. This is how nutricosmetics work.

Supplements, powders and drinks were developed to enhance the cells in your body which then restores good health to your skin and make it glow. Ingestible skincare products have proven to be pretty effective. These drinkable skincare products contain essential vitamins, antioxidants and minerals that work well on your skin. Some have anti-inflammatory properties, while others contain properties that will boost collagen production in your skin.

Most of the skincare conditions we deal with are caused from immune deficiency or digestive problems. Drinkable skincare products tackle those problems right from the root such that it radiates on your skin. I think it is a brilliant idea!

I love how the the beauty industry evolved from producing topical skincare products to ingestible skincare products. The topical products focus on problems that occur on the surface of your skin. Although there are a lot of products that have recorded considerable success in dealing with blemishes on your skin, they don’t totally eradicate them. Tackling the problem from the outside doesn’t entirely prevent them from reappearing.

Have you ever used a certain product and it felt like it took forever before you were able to see an improvement? That is the problem with topical products and the beauty industry was quick enough to notice this.

 

How Drinkable Skincare Products Work

With drinkable skincare products the contents go straight into the cells causing your skincare condition. Although there were people who came up with their own mixtures, juices or teas to improve their skin, the beauty industry took it a step further by experimenting and studying various skin conditions, their probable causes and the exact components that will help solve the problem at the cellular level.

Their findings helped them come up with the ideal blends that will tackle the problem straightaway instead of leaving everything to guesswork. The beauty industry has helped us to deal with our skin issues with precision.

At the end of the day, this development in the beauty industry has been well-accepted and now you see more and more people drink their way to beautiful skin and healthy bodies. Probably this is the answer to all the frustrations that women have been facing as to glowing skin.

 

What Next?

Constant research is being carried out to develop drinkable products that will work faster and more effectively. As time goes by, we will definitely see more of such products being sold in stores and used in our homes.

What do you think of drinkable skincare products? Have you used any? I have used a few and I think they are fabulous. Please share your thoughts in the comments section below.
