Even the best of blow outs and hairstyles can be a hot chaos once we’ve slept on them. We all have that second when we wake up and look in the mirror and review the damage of the night before, seeing what salvaging is probable for our slept on hairstyle. But to better prepare your hair for a shockingly helpful result in the morning, there’s some fabulous tactics we can embrace!
1. Avoid elastic bands
Believe it or not you can do damage to your hair when sleeping. We see so many people who spend a good deal of money on great haircuts, color, and care products then turn in for the night with a ponytail tied with an elastic band. That elastic band will put undue stress on your hair shaft and roots.
2. Apply an overnight treatment
An overnight treatment can sometimes be the best medicine for overly-dry or broken end. Place a small bottle of lemongrass oil in a cup of hot water to let the oil become more fluid, then apply the oil to your ends (or all the way up to your scalp if needed) and put your hair in a high bun or a braid. Wrap your hair in a silk scarf or gentle fabric to keep the oil off your pillow covers, and let the treatment do its magic while you sleep. The very next morning, don’t get your hair wet or shower! Instead, take your shampoo and apply it directly to your oily hair. Afterwards, start the shower and continue as you would with your daily routine.
3. Do the twist
Twist your hair around itself into a top knot at the top of the head and use a fabric scrunchie to secure. The scrunchie is best because it is gentle on the hair and the elastic is covered. When you unravel it in the morning you will have preserved or created waves (depending on your hair’s natural texture).
If you like to keep you hair sleek and straight, use the wrapping technique. Starting at apex of the head, use a brush to begin directionally arranging the hair around the head using large bobby pins to secure as you go.
5. Upgrade your pillow case
Your cotton pillow case can cause pulling on your hair. The best pillow cover for your hair is silk or satin. If your budget does not have room for silk or satin pillow cases, you can get the same effect by wrapping your hair in a silk or satin scarf.
6. Brush your hair out before bed
One of the best things that you can do for your hair is to brush or comb it before turning in for the night. Use a brush with natural bristles or a wide tooth comb. Brush your hair from root to tip for several minutes. The strokes help you move your scalp’s natural oils through your hair.
No matter if it is on Netflix, boxset or it is airing on your telly box, there is a quantity of really extraordinary TV out there at the moment. Starting with political dramas, to sci-fi, to vigilante escapades and cruel fantasy – there’s something on no matter what your tastes are. But which TV show is the emperor of them all? We have gathered a list of the top of small screen greatness to set an example that all potential programmes should follow. Here’s the very best TV of all time.
Don’t come at me with your “they don’t make actors like they used to” rants. Hollywood might be more into trivial blockbuster films, but the diversity and pure quantity of talent coming out of the woodwork every year remains the same. There are in fact great performers gradually building a career right now, and this list aims to be a raking of some of the best among them.
There are recently exposed talents that have yet to verify they have staying power, but there are also impressive actors who’ve been around for some time now, and have establish their niche and wonderfully grown since. Some of them must be better used by filmmakers, and several of them will almost certainly face a lot of injustice going forward. They all have that something that warrants keeping an eye on.
There are countless wonderful places around the world to see, we couldn’t possibly include them all in only one list. However, these spectacular destinations are absolutely worth bumping to the top of your travel bucket list–whether you’re looking to rest on a beach, get off the grid or see the sights of city.
One of Britain’s oldest women, who celebrated her 110th birthday today, revealed the secret to her long life is, well, it’s whisky.
Grace Jones, known to her friends as ‘Amazing Grace’, is the 10th oldest person in the UK.

The mother-of-one, who lives in Broadway, Worcs., said: ‘I never miss my night cap. All I have is the whisky at night.
‘Whisky is very good for you. I started having a nightly tot of it when I turned 50 so I’ve been having it every night for the last 60 years and I certainly have no intention of stopping now.’
She added: ‘My doctor said “keep up with the whisky Grace, it’s good for your heart”.
‘I still feel the same as I did when I was 60. I feel fine. I feel full of spirit. I have got seven cards from the Queen now. This year’s was a very nice one.
The former millinery factory owner celebrated her milestone birthday with family and friends at Buckland Manor, a large country estate where she enjoyed a drinks reception followed by lunch – and of course a complimentary glass of whisky.

Finally, a little extravagance in the New York City restroom experience.
As part of a new exhibit entitled “America” at New York’s Guggenheim Museum, Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan replaced the fourth-floor toilet with a functional 18-karat gold toilet.
Worth between $1 million and $1.7 million, the shiny john is hooked up to the museums regular old plumbing system.
It’s contemporary art, and you can poop on it. There’s truly something for everyone.
To use the toilet, visitors only have to pay the $15 museum entrance fee, meaning that, basically, you end up paying more to use the bathroom at a Cheesecake Factory. It’s a great deal, and we should all be strongly considering making a visit.
According to Fox, the toilet will require a cleaning after each use and will also be watched over by a lucky full-time security guard.
