Three Supplements You Should Be Taking To Improve Your Workout Results

Image
First, I would like to start by saying, do you NEED supplements to live a fit and healthy lifestyle? Absolutely not. But, why not give your body some support when it comes to working out. After all, you put in all that work at the gym. Surely you want to see maximum results as quickly as possible.

 Just remember, nothing can replace a nutritious balanced diet. But supplements can fill the holes that your diet is missing. Also, supplements are formulated so your body doesn't have to spend time breaking down the nutrients to absorb later. When you consume them they go right to work replenishing, repairing, and recovering.


 Here's a list of the three best supplements that give you better results from your workouts:



1. Protein Powder 
Long story short, protein is CRITICAL for everything in your body. Almost everything in your body is made from mostly protein. Protein repairs muscles and also helps to produce important enzymes and hormones your body needs. When you work out, your …

10 Tips for Growing Long and Strong Hair.

Image
Whenever I'm out and about, one question I'm always asked is "your hair is so long, do you have extensions?" And the answer is NO. 
About a year ago, I decided that I wanted to grow my hair as long as possible and as quickly as possible. So I did my research, experimented a little, and discovered the most effective tips for growing your hair quickly.

1. Don't wash EVERYDAY. Washing everyday strips your hair of its natural oils, which causes your hair to dry out and break off 🙁. Stick to washing every other day. Just pop on a shower cap on your non wash days to protect your style. If your hair gets oily quickly, use a dry shampoo to refresh and add volume. This is a fabulous dry shampoo and it smells amazing. Batiste Dry Shampoo, Tropical, 6.73 Ounce (packaging May Vary) -

2. Use the right brush.  Omg, it took me so long to get on board with this! For years I heard everyone raving about how amazing "the wet brush" is. My stylist even told me "you NE…
