You’ve probably been using Dry Shampoo the wrong way!

Dry Shampoo. An absolute lifesaver. But did you know there's a RIGHT way to apply it? If not, read on, because these 5 simple steps well help you become a professional. ONE: Spray the Hairline Starting with dry, dirty hair, begin by spraying your hairline around the face, ensuring that you've got a couple of inches between the tip of the dry shampoo can and your face.

Mindfulness

A word on mindfulness

Us humans tend to naturally run on autopilot. We tend to go about our daily routines by default, meaning we don’t consciously take in what we’re doing, seeing and experiencing. Mindfulness aims to go against this way of thinking and being. Mindfulness is the simple human ability to be fully present, conscious of where we are and what we’re doing. It’s not the easiest practice to take on or explain, but its benefits have proven to aid millions across the globe. What is mindfulness?
