Julie46

Hi, I am Juile age 46.  I never like working out, getting all sweaty and I don't like gyms.  But since I became a member of Dare to Be Fit, all that has changed.  I am no longer on blood pressure medication.  I look and feel more energic and trim.  People are comlimenting me all the time on how much I have changed.  I smile a lot more because I feel so good.  Coach discovered the 'gym rat' in me and I am proud to say that I am in the best shape ever at 46 years old.  If you are serious about exercise and healthy choices, then Coach, Ray and Ty will lead you every step of the way.  Dare to Be Fit is like my very own personal training club.  

Thanks for keeping me smiling!

From Lackluster to Luscious

Secrets to beautiful hair.

It’s true. You’re stuck with the hair you’re born with. But that doesn’t mean you can’t do something to make it a little bit…better. From dull to shiny, damaged to healthy, or flat to full of life, here are some tips to get your hair to look the way you want.

Get Regular Trims

Split ends and breakage can make your hair look lifeless and unhealthy. Start fresh with a trim to remove damaged hair. Then schedule a trim every month or two depending on how fast your hair grows. You don’t have to lose much length to see improvement. Just go with cutting a quarter to half an inch. This will add body to your hair and prevent those bothersome fly-aways.

Do note, however, that contrary to popular belief, getting a hair cut will not help your hair grow faster. Your hair grows out of your scalp, not out of the ends of your hair.

Limit Shampoo

Many people are in the habit of washing their hair every day. Unfortunately, shampoo can strip your hair of its natural oils and shine. How often you wash your hair depends on your hair type and preference. Unless your hair is excessively oily or has product buildup each day, try to wash it a maximum of every other day.

When you wash, use warm water. Hot water can damage hair and cold water isn’t necessary. In the event your hair becomes sticky from product residue, once a month add a tablespoon of baking soda to the amount of shampoo you use to clean your hair.

Condition Often

To prevent dryness and breakage, your hair needs adequate moisture. For soft and manageable hair, use conditioner after you shampoo, or at least twice a week. Natural ingredients such as olive oil, avocado oil, and shea butter work to heal damaged hair and prevent split ends.

Avoid Heat

Many people won’t even consider avoiding heat on their hair. Styling with a heated tool is just part of the normal routine. However, it can wreck havoc on your hair if you’re not careful. When there is no option but heat, don’t just go for it. Before using a curling iron, straightener, or blow dryer, spray or apply a heat protector product on your hair to lessen the damage caused by heat and to add shine.

When possible, let your hair air-dry or use the coolest setting possible on your blow dryer or other tool. You should also consider upgrading your one-size-fits-all blow dryer for one with features to dry your specific hair type.

Eat a Healthy Diet

If you’re not eating the right kinds of nutritious foods, your hair may be limp and dry. Remember—your hair is made of a dead protein called keratin, so it only makes sense to eat lots of healthy, lean protein. Include plenty of fish, eggs, lean meat, low-fat dairy, and beans in your diet.

For hair that lacks luster and shine, you’ll need to eat more omega-3 fatty acids found in foods such as salmon, walnuts, and flaxseed oil. And don’t expect shiny, healthy hair overnight. A change in diet can take six months to affect the look of your hair.

Don’t Smoke

One more reason to stop smoking: the unhealthy toxins that fill your body when you smoke damage the DNA found in the hair follicle. This leads to brittle, thin hair. Smoker’s hair will not only break easy and lack body, but it will also gray and fall out sooner. Lesson learned: quit smoking.

Prevent Friction

Keep your hair cuticles smooth and frizz-free by reducing the amount of friction on your hair. When you dry your hair, don’t rub it with a towel but gently squeeze extra water out. Wet hair is especially fragile and prone to breakage, so don’t brush your hair when it’s wet. Rather, use a wide-toothed wooden comb. When your hair’s dry, use a boar-bristle brush rather than a plastic brush, which can snag and damage hair.

To cut the amount of friction on your hair even more, sleep on a satin pillowcase.
