Do Whatever Makes You Feel Like A Rock Star

You know how sometimes you can do something for yourself and afterward you feel like you’re a total rock star and nobody can tell you nuffin’? Maybe it’s a bomb workout, or beating your face just right, or getting your brows did. For me, it’s hair. When my hair is laidt, or newly colored and voluminous, or flat ironed pin straight so I can swing it around with. ev. e. ry. syl. la. ble. …listen!!!  I wish I knew how to do makeup too. Can you imagine how insufferable I’d be if I could do contour sorcery, AND had my hair freshly done? #theworldisnotready.

We all have that one thing (or more than one) that gives us a good boost. Yeah, yeah, beauty is on the inside, and loving yourself is key and all that, but part of showing yourself love is taking care of our physical bodies inside AND out. It is self-care. It is necessary. And the self-esteem boost just FEELS good. And the feeling is what’s most important. So, whatever makes you feel like queen of all the things… DO IT, often.

Here is how to be sure you keep on getting those boosts:

Envision It

You can judge me if ya wanna, but I put some dope hair on my vision board. #yesidid And I made a mini vision board at the beginning of November that had something hair related on it too. If you’re not the vision board type, it’s all good. Just take a sec to sit and visualize yourself having/wearing/doing/being whatever it is that gives you that boost. How does it feel? If that’s too hard for you, just try to remember the last time you had/wore/did the thing. Now take that good feeling memory and go through your day with it.

Schedule It

If you know you feel dope when your face is beat, but you don’t have time for a full beat, schedule it in to your morning routine (even if you need to wake up a bit earlier) so you can face the world looking fierce. If it’s your brows, schedule out all your appointments for the next few months with your favorite threader. You get my point. Having the thing that lights you up and puffs up your chest scheduled into your life is legit self-care.

Maintain It

Since I know that having my hair look good helps me feel good, I take good care of it. I deep condition on the regular, and I get my trims and color touched up. … OK… #realtalk I am horrible about getting my color touched up. I went blonde in April and didn’t go back for upkeep until December. Sue me. However, I did maintain the color at home with color friendly products like Dove Hair Color Care Shampoo and Conditioner. It has Vibrant Color Lock, and coconut and almond oils, to keep my hair shining and healthy.

I love having the blonde in my hair and I don’t want it to get gross or brassy looking, so I maintain it with products specially formed to nourish color treated hair. Bonus: Dove Color Care Shampoo and Conditioner keeps my color poppin’ for up to 40 washes (And honestly…it’ll take me forever to wash my hair 40 times lol #winning)

What is your “thing” that makes you feel like a rock star?

No kidding, I was JUST thinking about this concept day before yesterday. I was watching Tamar & Vince and noticed how laid and beat to the gods she always is. Of course, she's on the televisions but still! For me, when my hair is freshly colored, straight and swingy AND my eyelashes are all aflutter, I'm unstoppable. Now, for the scheduling it in part.

I've been wanting to go blonde again and now you're giving me the motivation to do it lol. You look amazing. As for what makes me feel like a rockstar, sleep! Nothing beats looking and feeling awake.

Did I ever tell you how much I love your blonde hair? I was blonde in high school, probably even the same shade, and I loved it. Definitely considering going back to it. I love changing up my hair and sitting in the hair dresser's chair for a good rockstar feeling.

Okay first of all, your hair is always dope! So hush! I love Dove shampoo! It makes the hair so soft and smells so good! So cool that it works well on color treated hair. I love your voluminous curly fro!

First of all, you are so damn gorgeous!!! Second of all, am I the only one who hates using the word 'beat' when referring to someone's face? LOL

The "thing" that makes me feel most like a rockstar is a good night's sleep but in a close second, I would have to say when my natural hair is large and in charge! A big moisturized defined fro is where it's at! Would love to see what Dove can do with my hair!
