Novuhair Summer Hair Care Tips

I confess that summer is not my favorite season. No matter how much I love going to the beach, I don't enjoy being under the heat of the sun. Whenever we visit, I would rather enjoy the salty smell of the sea breeze under a beach hut and try avoiding the summer sun as much as I could.  After all,  spending extended hours under the extreme summer sun can pose serious dangers to our hair and scalp. It is the same UV rays that bring damage to our skin without proper protection can equally hurt your hair and scalp. Below are some of the problems your hair can encounter during the season: Split-Ends - UV rays and extremely high temperature can take their toll on your strands.

How to Manage Long Hair During Summer

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are 100% mine. Having long hair during summer may not be the best idea. With the heat, sun, and humidity, one may just simply resort to immediately cut his or her hair short. However, for someone like me who does not want to really have short hair, these tips have been helpful on how to manage long hair this summer time.  Please note that some tips are also applicable even if you have short hair.  1.

Reasons Why Moms Are The Best + Cheesecake's New Litter

Mother's Day is a few months away but recent events made me realize how amazing moms are. A few weeks ago, my adopted furbaby, Cheesecake gave birth to 4 puppies. The delivery had some complications wherein the umbilical cord was not cut for 2 puppies and the last puppy got stuck for more than 12 hours.
