Don’t Wash Too Often
Washing your hair too often will strip it of it’s natural oils. Some hair gets greasier faster than others, but you can train it to stay cleaner for longer if you don’t wash it so much. Get into the habit of washing every other day if you currently wash it every day.
Use Dry Shampoo
Dry shampoo is a great tool for freshening up your hair and reducing the appearance of grease. Just make sure you use your fingers to work it in properly, or you can end up with white hair! Dry shampoo can also give you more volume and lift if you have fine hair!
Prep it With the Right Products

You’ll find it so much easier to style!

A while back, I wrote about how to give your confidence a boost. An important aspect of the process was to improve yourself in your own eyes and to get a better sense of self-esteem. However, I appreciate it can be hard to do when you are feeling low, so I thought I would share an idea with you that could make the difference.
It’s a simple one - get a hobby.
Why? Well, that’s simple enough, too. A hobby is something that you do on your own terms - you aren’t tied to anyone else if you don’t want to be. It’s something that you can own and call your own, and it’s also something that you learn to do. You get better at it or more knowledgeable over time. And it’s that point that can make a difference to your self-esteem.
Here are some hobby ideas for you. They are fun, and will test you, no doubt. But if you want to improve your self-esteem there are plenty of things out there to explore. Take a look, see what you think, and by all means let me know if you have any more ideas.

For many people, beauty is a matter of perspective.
But conventional beauty isn’t an idea that’s quite as abstract. There are plenty of different traits that people associate with being beautiful. If you can achieve them, you will find people think you look incredibly beautiful. So, what are these different physical traits and how can you make sure you have them?
If you deal with these issues, you can guarantee that you look stunning, but the most important element of is security. If you feel secure and love yourself for who you are, you will always be viewed as attractive.

Young women can spend an awful lot of time thinking about their body. Society places a lot of pressure on women about their looks, particularly when it comes to certain traits that are seen as feminine. One of the things that women of all ages worry about most is their breasts. They're too big or too small, they're the wrong shape or one is larger than the other. You can work hard to overcome these negative thoughts. But sometimes you want a helping hand to make yourself happy.
If you wish to change the appearance of your boobs, here are a few ways you can do it.
Change Your Bra
A lot of women wear the wrong sized bra, and they don't even know it. Your bra can make a huge difference to the shape and lift of your boobs, as well as how big they look. If you want to ensure you're wearing the right size, getting measured can help. It's also possible to get back and cup measurements for yourself at home. You just need a soft tape measure to do it. The style of your bra can make a difference too. A push-up bra will give you a lift, while a full-cup bra could change the shape of your breasts. Try out different styles to see how they look different.
Experiment with Different Clothes
Your clothes can also have an effect on your overall figure and the appearance of your boobs. Depending on how they stretch over your chest and alter other parts of your body, they can change lots of things. For example, if you have a larger chest, wearing an A-line skirt or dress can help to balance out your frame. If your breasts are smaller, a top with a higher neck can be better for you than showing too much collarbone. You can try out different looks, experimenting with both clothes and bra styles at the same time. Take note of what effect everything has and what you like best.
Use Tape and Inserts
You can also employ some tools to help you adjust how your boobs sit under your top. They can be especially useful if you're wearing one of those beautiful but impractical tops or dresses! One of the things you can use is tape. Just make sure you buy special fashion tape and don't use any old tape you find lying around. That could end in disaster! Another thing some people use is bra inserts, which are usually made of silicone.
If you're unhappy with your breasts, another thing you can consider is cosmetic surgery. Both increasing and decreasing your cup size is possible, as well as breast lifts. A breast augmentation specialist will tell you about how and when you can have surgery. Some women with larger chests decide to have a reduction because their breasts cause them health problems. If you get back or neck pain, surgery can help to alleviate it.
You can use a few different methods to change how your breasts look. Even if you're perfectly happy with them, it's fun to experiment with fashion and see what you can do.
Making the decision to study abroad is a great choice. You’ll get to experience different cultures, make new friends and have an adventure. You’ll have the chance to explore an entirely new country and maybe even get the opportunity to set up a life there. But, there are some tips you’re going to need to survive this huge life change. Some of them are extremely important. Others you can take or leave.
Here’s our advice for all you international leavers.
You’ll Need Top Grades
As the world get’s more populated, the grades needed to get into university and college are rising. You need top grades to get into a university in your home country. But, if you want to get into one abroad you will need to excel in every subject you can. It also helps to be able to put unique life experiences on your application. For instance, you might have done some charity work or had experience in the field that you will be studying. Anything that can separate you from other applicants is worth mentioning. This includes your ability to speak a foreign language.
If you are studying in a native english speaking country and english is not your native language, you’re going to have to show fluency. It’s not enough to just claim you can speak it either. You need proof. For that, you will be expected to take the IELTS exam. IELTS stands for International English Language Testing System. It is the most popular exam that universities across the world to test an applicant's fluency in English. We suggest that you research how to take this test and start studying for it. If you don’t get a good grade, you won’t be able to apply as a potential candidate.
Make Friends Before You Go
If you know other people who are going to your chosen uni, it’s important that you try to make friends. It will be a lot easier if you have people you know before you start life over there. You may want to try and make some friends online too. By using social media networks, you’ll be able to find people who are freshers at your chosen uni. Making acquaintances is an excellent way to ensure you have a support group before you head over there.
Guys Love Accents
We thought we should throw this in incase you were not aware. A lot of guys adore foreign accents. They’ll be buzzing around you all the time. You’ll attract them without even trying. So, if you want some days when you aren’t getting the attention of the male sex, you might want to practice a fake accent. This isn’t as crazy as it sounds, and a lot of international students master this deception.
Start Planning ASAP
Our final piece of advice is to start planning your study as soon as possible. There’s a lot to think about, and you need to let universities know your plans. Your school should be able to help you with this. After, that you just have to wait in excitement for this new stage of your life to begin. Good luck!
