Luckily, adopting some of these habits is super simple. #1 Buy a Better Bar Soap Every bar of soap is different, and ingredients and manufacturing make a huge difference in the final result.

Want to know a secret? The more choices you have the harder it can be to make a decision. Even as children we learned that finding that “just right” chair, meal, or bed wouldn’t be easy. Choosing the perfect round brush can be difficult, especially since you can’t pick up a blow dryer in a store and test the brushes firsthand.

Losing your hair at any age is a traumatic experience. It may occur incrementally at a pace so slow you don’t notice, but it can be brought on by changes in stress levels, too. Hair goes through four stages: Anagen – growing Catagen – brief transition between growing and resting Telogen – dormant/resting Exogen – shedding Most of the time, your hair is in the anagen stage.

What do you see when you look in the mirror? A vital, healthy human being or someone struggling to feel attractive? In a research study involving over 1500 men, “47% reported hair loss […] and 62% agreed that hair loss could affect self-esteem.” Typically, people shed between 50–100 hairs every day as part of their hair’s normal life cycle.
