Our Top 5 Self-Care Recommendations
With the holiday season quickly approaching, it’s important that you take some time for yourself before the festivities begin. Having a peace of mind should be your number one priority: you definitely owe it to yourself!
Here at CurlMix, we're ready to support you while you pursue self-care. Here are our recommendations, just in time for the holidays:
1. Show Your Scalp Some Love
When was the last time your scalp received some serious tender love and care?
Drops of oil smooth-sailing into your carefully-crafted parts, sending sweet sensations throughout your scalp. The oil works its magic by running through sensitive spots before you take matters into your own fingertips, gently massaging your scalp. If you don’t remember the last time you’ve had this delightful experience, here’s a sign: oil your scalp!
This small (but sweet!) gesture is as effective as it is enjoyable. A few of benefits of oiling your scalp include:
- Promotes hair growth
- Stimulating your blood circulation
- Restores moisture
Treat yourself nice by picking up a Pure Regrowth Serum to use for oiling your scalp.
2. Butter Up
Here at CurlMix, we’re big on moisturizing. This doesn’t stop at your curls; we want to make sure your skin is nice and hydrated too!
Shea butter is an empowering and essential ingredient that is found in a plethora of hair and skin products. Life goes a little smoother when your skin itself is feeling soothed, and shea butter is a key player in keeping your skin healthy and moisturized.
Soft skin brings a peace of mind (especially during these colder months); get buttered up with one of our Pure Body Butters.
3. Go on a Weekend Getaway
Let’s be honest: we could all use a little break.
Life can be as messy as bed head. Oftentimes, while trying to sort through various entanglements, it can be frustrating to be consumed with all that work. If you’re feeling like you’re on the edge (or losing your edges), take time during this upcoming holiday season to get away from the hustle and bustle that may be driving your hair crazy.
You don’t need to go far, nor do you need to go big; spending only a day or two outside of your home can make a huge impact on your well-being. A quick check-in at a nice hotel is a great way to check in on yourself.
4. Binge-Watch Hair Tutorials
Raise your hand if you can’t resist a nice hair tutorial video...or ten.
Creativity stems from being exposed to new ideas; fortunately, these ideas have become readily accessible to us on platforms such as YouTube. Influencers and hair stylists providing content that allows for naturals to grow in their own respective hair journeys. Not only are these videos informative, but they’re also a lot of fun!
It’s amazing how relaxing it is to watch someone else practice hair care on themselves (or their clients). If you’re looking for a few good videos to dive into, head over to CurlMix Connect for our favorite hair tutorials.
5. Get Some Sleep
CurlMixers, we cannot stress this enough: get some sleep. How will you be able to reach your greatest potential if you’re not taking the time to refresh and rejuvenate your energy?
Self-care is about knowing when to stop and breathe. Rest is just as important as the grind, and practicing the balance of these two will ensure that you’re living your best life!
Whenever you settle in for a well-deserved slumber, don’t forget to protect your curls by resting your head on our satin pillowcase.
Just because we want the absolute best for you, we have another recommendation for your self-care needs: at-home spa day! Imagine it now: soaking in a luxurious bath, brimmed with bubbles and seeping with bath salts. A delicate body cream is the icing on top of a relaxing time. Keep your ears open, CurlMixers: this month's CurlMix Fresh will fulfill all of your spa needs!
