Self-care can start with your hair | THIQUE Hair Care Product Review

This post is in collaboration with THIQUE Hair Care. As always, all opinions are my own.

I love that this year has been a self-care focused year for many people, including myself. I’ve never realized how important self-care was until a few years after having a family and a baby of my own. Normally, instead of taking care of myself I gave all of the care to my family, which is a good thing but not a great thing in a self-care perspective.

I used to feel that taking care of yourself before others was a behavior of selfishness. But when looking more closely at what exactly self-care can do to help you, it made me change my mind. I started practicing self-care because it helped me to achieve and become a better person inside and out.

Just to give you a quick example of why you need to incorporate self-care to your daily routine. If you don’t take care of your health, either physically or emotionally, you might end up in poorer health condition. How can you be capable of taking care of others? No one will be able to take care of you and know exactly what you want, like or dislike as good as you do. There’s no reason to not take care of yourself.

For me, because I love my family so much, I should pay more attention and take better care of myself before it’s too late. Even though I started to adopt self-care in my routine after I had a family, you don’t need to have a family to start taking care of yourself. You can start at the stage you are at and it doesn’t matter how old you are and what life situation you are in. All you need to do is to start with small steps at a time and know that you’re important, you need love and care just like other people who you want to give your love and care to.

If you say, you don’t have time to take care of yourself, well, I don’t blame you. But don’t get discouraged because in today’s post I put together the easiest way to start incorporating your self-care practice to your daily routine. They’re super simple and easy to follow. As I said in our topic today, self-care can start with your hair! Yes, you can start by taking good care of your hair. Here’s how.

Tip #1 Comb Your Hair Everyday

Combing your hair is a healthy habit to have and you should do it every night before going to bed. The reason why it’s a good habit is because combing can help increase blood circulation in the scalp, promote healthy hair and help to transport oxygen and nutrients to your hair follicles. While combing your hair, the natural oils (sebum) that’s produced by sebaceous glands will be released which will help your hair look and feel shinier, and stronger. Combing also helps to get rid of dead skin cells, left over chemicals and old hair.

Be aware of excessive combing or brushing which may promote the excess sebum and make your scalp greasy.

Tip #2 Trim Your Hair

Trimming your hair can help remove split ends, damaged and broken hair. You can do it yourself once a month or every other month.

As you know that the end of your hair is the oldest part of your hair. To keep your hair looking healthy, you have to trim the damaged parts out. This will make your hair look and feel fuller and healthier afterwards.

Tip #3 Use Natural Ingredient Haircare Products

I’ve been hooked with natural haircare products for at least a few years now. I have noticed a significant change in the health of my hair after switching to the natural haircare lines.

I used to have hair loss and dry scalp problems but not anymore since I started paying attention to how I care for my hair.

During my pregnancy and now during my postpartum stage, my hair is still stronger and healthier than ever. Even my husband noticed that the other day that I don’t have any problems with my hair anymore.

With my first pregnancy I lost a lot of my hair like crazy both during and after the pregnancy. But this time around I figured out the ways to keeping my hair healthy which includes using natural ingredient haircare products. The brand I’m using right now is THIQUE Hair Care.

THIQUE Hair Care reached out to me last year and they wanted to get my honest opinions on their products. I said yes after doing some research and learned more about them in the process.

I love that their products are non-toxic, naturally based which features natural plant extracts and the purest essential oils. Their products are free of sulfates, parabens and gluten. Their products are hypoallergenic, vegan, safe for color-treated hair and not tested on animals.

I’m now using THIQUE Hair Care products (SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER, SCALP SERUM and VOLUMIZING MIST) for over a month now and I wanted to share with you what I thought about them.

THIQUE HAIR CARE GENTLE VOLUMIZING SHAMPOO

  • AMAZONIAN COPAIBA OIL.  Natural antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties nourish the scalp
  • NATURAL CAFFEINE EXTRACTS.  Stimulates hair shaft and promotes hair growth
  • CANADIAN WILLOW HERB.  Soothes the scalp as it gently removes impurities

First impression: This shampoo has a lovely and light floral scent combined with a cool peppermint scent. It isn’t overpowering. The packaging is sleek and simple. Nothing is too complicated when it comes to using the product. The shampoo is in a clear gel form. It gives a good amount of foam once you apply onto wet hair. It’s very easy to rinse off the product. It also gives my hair a refreshing and very clean feeling.

First impression: This conditioner has a light natural scent combined with a cool peppermint scent to it. The conditioner is lightweight in a white gel-like form. I tend to use a lot more condition than the shampoo. I think it’s because of its lightweight that makes me feel that I don’t put enough of the conditioner on my hair. It’s very easy to rinse off and gives my hair a very clean and soft to the touch feeling. I can feel and notice that my hair gets fuller and thicker after only one use, which is amazing.

It comes in a clear gel form and in an easy to pump bottle. There’s no stickiness feeling when applying. The serum absorbs into my scalp very quickly. They recommend using it before bed, but I use it after every hair wash.

I’m very satisfied with how THIQUE Hair Care shampoo, conditioner, serum and hair mist turned my hair and scalp to a healthier one.

I’m happy every time I use the products because I know that I’m treating my hair with plant based and natural ingredients.

Hi love! Happy New Year!

I’m back after taking a few weeks break from my work. How were your holidays? I’m super excited to be back and to be sharing with you my fashion, beauty, and life stories again this year.

Great news! I decided to continue our #GOODVIBESGIFTING series starting from this January because it’s so nice to get to know all of you. This month I’m giving away a $25 Starbucks gift card and one surprise gift to one lucky reader on every single blog post. Which means if I come out with 10 blog posts, there will be 10 winners. You’re welcome. 🙂

What you have to do is to share your story at the end of each post and engage on my Instagram posts. I’ll announce all the winners at the end of the month here on allaboutgoodvibes.com. I will also send out an email to notify you, so make sure you’re on my email list, you can sign up below.

To get a quick update on my stories, feel free to follow me on Instagram @TheVibesCloset.

To those who were concerned about my health, THANK YOU so much for sending me Facebook & IG messages and emails asking about my pregnancy. I’m feeling amazingly great now after going to the labor and delivery the evening after Christmas to check on my early labor contractions I was having. I got a shot to help calm my uterus down and have been better since. Those two weeks break was a good help too. We have a few more weeks to go til we meet our new baby! I can’t wait to introduce our new addition of joy to you.

No more about me! Let’s get started with our topic today to help you get on track for your best year yet. I forgot to mention that you can apply these 3 tips with any new project, it doesn’t have to be only for the New Year.

The second the new year started, I felt the positive energy coming my way and even my husband could feel it too. Below are some tips on what we did a few days before the year ended.

Tip 1

Let go of the past and focus on the present

Holding on to the past will slow you down in every aspect of life. The best thing to do with it is to let it go and stay at your present moment. You don’t need to forget about your past completely but to only use it as your life lessons. Think about what you learned from it. Say thank you to your past that has taught you so many things and made you become who you are now. There’s no need to keep talking and/or thinking about it all the time. Just move on and do your best at your time now.

If you want, you can write down a list of your past that you’re holding on to. Then write what are the good lessons you learned from them. Write “Thank you” at the end of each one. Now it’s time for you to appreciate them and move on.

Practice Tip 1

It can be something like this:

I love when …. because…., thank you for ….. now I’m ready to move on.

 


 

Tip 2

Remember you can achieve anything in life

All success starts within YOU. If you believe in yourself and put your mind into whatever you do, you are already half way to your success. If you’re planning a new project, new daily routines, don’t think about obstacles you may face but instead imagine yourself already achieving your goal. How would you feel? Excited? Happy? So proud? Full of joy?

The best practice of this tip is to never, ever doubt your abilities or others who will be involved in your goals. The second you have doubt in you mind, you are so many steps further away from your achievements.

For example, if you want to improve your relationship with your friend/ partner, you should trust in both of your abilities, put the past aside, don’t think about obstacles, and only image what it would be like to have the best relationship ever.

Practice Tip 2

Now put this tips to practice by filling in the blanks below;

I believe and I know in my heart that I can …… . I would feel so ……. after I achieve……. . I am so grateful for my ability and others who are making this ….. happen. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

 


 

Tip 3

Empower yourself with good books

My husband and I used this tip on New Year’s Eve night. We both got new books that inspired us in the areas that we’re looking to improve. Instead of watching movies, we read our new books until midnight in our bed. Same as our 3 years old daughter who got new books and was reading them to herself and us before she fell to sleep.

Books play a big role in self empowering. Especially the books that have other people’s stories or proven theories in it. If you get the right book on the right topic you’re looking for, that book can change your life or at least empower and direct you in the right direction.

I purchased about 30 new books toward the end of last year and the beginning of the new year within those two weeks of my days off and I almost finished my first two books. I’ve learned a lot this past week and I can’t wait to read more books to ensure and empower myself to the next level of me.

What had happened since my husband and I started reading our books before bed are:

  1. We learned something new that inspired us before going to bed.
  2. Our connection is stronger than before because we share our positive thoughts before we’re going to bed.
  3. We encourage and support each other with the areas we needed improvement.
  4. Talking freely and honestly with how we feel about each other.
  5. We are on the same page and willing to do whatever tasks to make us and our family happy.

Practice Tip 3

Answer these questions below to find out what type of book you should start the New Year with:

  1. What areas of life would you like to improve most?
  2. Do you like a book with theory, easy step-by-step guide, real life experience or all of them?
  3. Do you like to read or listen?
  4. Where can you get your book (audiobook) from?
  5. When will you get your book(s) and start your first page?

Now it’s time for you to get the right book and start empowering yourself.

 


 

Here are 5 books I recommend reading to start of your year (project) right.

Question for you today:

So I wanted this first blog post of the year to be a source of inspiration and to help you become a better version of you.  I hope that you will use at least one or all three tips to get yourself on the right path.
