Back to school hair

School is back in session for all of the little ones in our lives. From increased traffic to an earlier bed time and let’s not forget our hair. Often we have less time to devote to our biweekly co-washes and trims, so here are some easy tips for maintaining healthy hair with less time.

  1. Protective styles are your friend. Not only do they save time while getting ready on the daily basis but they also keep your hair from being damaged on the ends especially.
  2. Devote a day to hair care.  This should be done at least weekly to ensure that your hair gets the time and energy it needs
  3. Maintain a healthy diet and drink water. Not only is this good for your body but it will benefit your hair giving it the nutrients that it needs.
  4. Let your hair breathe! Some days it’s good to let your hair down. Keep it free from clips, headbands and ponytail holders!

We are wishing all of our Sofn’free n’pretty girls a fabulous school year!

Superwoman finds her swag

There is a constant battle to between being fit, looking good and having fun. Being fit makes you look good and sometimes having fun is not the most ideal way to look good.

They say you are supposed to drink half your body weight in water. This is already a lot for someone who likes her water in ice cubes only.  Working out is cool, but then my hair is another battle. What about the days when I am too tired? Between working and being a mother who has time for themselves?  Other than super woman of course.

“If it is important you will make time, if it is not you will make excuses.”

After a million excuses and a little whining I walked into the gym and the trainer told me a quote.  “If it is important you will make time, if it is not you will make excuses.”  I decided that it is time out for excuses. After that day at the gym, I made a note with that faithful quote and stuck it to my bathroom mirror. Now every other evening as the sun is going down I run the 3 flights of stairs that are in my building. Up and down 20 times. Typically I am drenched in sweat and barely able to walk.  I drink my water in an oversized water bottle and I let my daughter take her chalk and draw pictures while she waits on me.

My summertime swag is fully activated and I realized that I am in fact super woman.  Cheers to a little Mommy Motivation!
