I loved going on Twitter yesterday and seeing the internet going crazy for Aline Brosh McKenna saying that there is no age limit on success. This is such an important message for women everywhere.

And it inspired many more women to tell their stories.

It’s never too late to realize your dreams.

I sometimes wake up and think I am crazy for starting Better Not Younger, but this is IMPORTANT to me for so many reasons. It’s more important than just having great looking hair.

The bigger mission is about remembering and reinforcing that age can’t stop us. It’s about remembering that we as women become more powerful as we age, that we become more comfortable in ourselves and we get BETTER as we grow older.

Just because we reach a certain age or a certain life stage doesn’t mean it’s too late to achieve our dreams.

My two top tips for realizing your dreams:

Don’t assume

It’s easy to assume that it’s not your place to do something. Those people won’t be interested in what you want to say. That your place in the world is set by a certain age. Don’t assume. Instead, force yourself to do things that make you uncomfortable and that make you feel excited and alive again.

Just ask

You don’t get it if you don’t ask. One of the biggest things I have had to do since starting Better Not Younger is asking for help. It’s a step into the unknown and there is so much that I haven’t done before. If you don’t ask for help, how will people even realize that you need their help?

Thank you, Aline, for reminding us that our career goals are possible at any age.

How Can I Clean My Scalp Naturally?

In our quest for shiny, beautiful hair, we put our aging hair and scalps through a lot — we switch from sticky gels to mousses, to sprays, trying to infuse life into our dull, frizzy locks. The more products we use, the more residue is left behind on our scalps. Product buildup can interfere with the natural pH of your scalp, making it impossible to sprout glossy, hydrated locks. Cleaning the gunk and toxin buildup from your scalp unclogs your hair follicles, balancing your natural sebum oils and scalp pH.

Everyone yearns for healthy nails and vibrant hair. When we experience frizzy, lackluster locks, and dry, brittle nails no matter what we try, it can be disheartening. Most people identify Teflon nails and silky hair as a signal of health. Remaining active and eating a balanced diet are essential; however, sometimes, your nails and hair may need a boost. Taking nutritional supplements can invigorate scalp function, helping your hair grow faster and thicker while also improving your nails.

Finding vitamins to feed your wilting hair can seem overwhelming. Drugstores pack hundreds of hair supplements on their shelves, and every company claims that their product will do what others cannot — give you waist-length hair that shines.
