10 Ways to Be Active This Summer!

After trying BeActive, I found a ton of ways to Be Active this summer. The BeActive Brace took away my pain, so that I was able to do all the activities that I love again. I couldn’t be happier with the results of this product and how it has worked for me.

You can get amazing results too with BeActive!

Here are some of the fun activities I was able to do again this summer to get in shape and be active again this summer.

+ Walk to lunch: Many of us work in cities where we are able to walk down the road to a Starbucks, or our favorite Mexican Restaurant. So, take a walk instead of driving. You are getting healthy, while saving the environment at the same time.

+ Take your workouts to the gym: Do your most difficult workouts indoors at a gym. It will be air conditioned and keep you a little more motivated in order to finish your workout.

+ Go for a swim: Swimming is one of the best exercises that you can do for your body. You use your entire body and cool off on a hot summer day, all at the same time!

+ Jump on a trampoline: It’s not just for the kids anymore! This sounds silly, but it also can give you a great workout. This is an activity that the whole family can enjoy too.

+ Rent a kayak: me and my sister do this a couple times each summer. What a way to workout your arms! You get the workout and a tan all at the same time.

+ Go for a bike ride: I’m sure you can think of one of those long roads that no one ever travels on. Well, that’s the perfect place for you to get a good bike ride in. It gets your heart pumping and is a great way to still get a cool breeze.

+ Walk the dog: It’s a good idea to see what kind of daily activity your pet needs. Pets are a great way to keep you motivated because most of them need even more physical activity each day than you do.

+ Early morning yoga: There is no better time to go for a workout than before the sun rises. Yoga is the perfect morning activity to wake you up and help you de-stress. You might also catch a beautiful sunrise!

+ Run in the rain: This may be one of my favorite activities. There is no better feeling than running on a warm day with a rain storm to cool you off. It also gets all the sweat off of you before you go back inside!

+ Participate in a triathlon: I like to make it a goal each summer to be in shape for triathlons. If you can run, bike, and swim just a few miles then this is the perfect activity for you to be active this summer.

  • Tease your hair: You don’t want your extensions sliding out all night, so tease your hair at the root so that your extensions stay in better
  • Put extensions in upside down: That sounds silly, but if you flip your hair upside down when putting in extensions, you get a lot more volume when you flip your head back up.
  • Match Your Hair: If you want you hair to match well with the extensions, spray them with Shine Glossing Spray so that you hair has the same sheen as the extensions.
  • Start cheaper: If you are interested in getting extensions, I’d start with a less expensive pair like the Secret Extensions Hair Extensions for just $39.99. They are easy to put in too!
  • Cut them yourself: Save yourself some money and cut your own extensions. You need to do this while they are on, but be super careful that you don’t cut your own hair!
  • Brush them Carefully: The hair can easily be ripped out of extensions if you aren’t careful. I like to use the Michel Mercier No Tangle Brush.

10 Simple Tips For Better Hair!

Posted by at in Hair

Top Hair Products

1. More is NOT always better! Use shampoos that lathers less. Shampoos that lather too much are often overloaded with moisturizing products, which can leave build-up in your hair, making it look and feel dirtier quicker. Opt for a sulfate-free formula so you can have clean hair longer.

2. There is absolutely no miracle cure for split ends! Once your hair has split the damage is done and will require you to get a hair cut, so protect it by keeping it moisturized. Try using a leave-in conditioner especially if you are out in the sun often.

3. Don’t forget to brush your hair! Brushing the hair properly cleanses and stimulates the scalp and distributes your natural oils along the entire hair shaft, which in turn will keep hair soft and shiny.

4. Nothing beats the feeling of freshly-washed hair, but many times the thought of blow-drying it can be a deterrence. Don’t have time to blow dry? Let your hair air dry instead. The good news is that when your hair dries naturally it’s much stronger than when a blow dryer is used. The oil from your scalp helps hair look shinier too!

5. If you are using a straighter to straighten your hair, make sure that you use it carefully and rarely. If it is used too often, there are chances of your hair being damaged. Before straightening your hair with an iron, make sure that you have dried your hair completely! When the hair is wet, it is fragile and more prone to breakage.

6.  Brush dry hair before washing to loosen dirt and remove knots. Smooth locks before washing means less tangles after washing — when your hair is wet and at its most fragile.

7. Don’t have time to wash your hair today? Try some dry shampoo or baby powder to soak up the oil in your roots. You’ll save yourself an entire shampoo and blow dry event!

8. Before blowdrying, towel dry your hair. Do NOT rub your hair with the towel as the friction causes split ends, frizzy dryness and generally does a lot of damage. Instead, gently wrap the towel around your hair and squeeze, like blotting the water out of your hair.

9. Don’t EVER dry until your whole head is completely dry – you need to leave in some moisture, so your hair won’t dry out, and become frizzy or damaged.

10. The easiest way to change your hair is not to dye it, or professionally have it done. All you need to do is change your part. Doing so will change your look and have you turning heads!
