Hair Health, Strength and Length!

Ayurvedic hair care has been my latest Glow Up blog topic for these past weeks. Now, I’ve officially started my Ayurvedic hair care regimen using my recently acquired stash of the CurlyProverbz x BelleBar Collection of Ayurvedic hair care products!

My natural hair care routine has changed a number of time over the last five years, but never get tired of searching for new ways of providing my hair with the best care possible. The Curly Proverbz X Belle Bar Collection is a great compliment to my weekly hair care goals regimen (click here for my Spring/Summer hair care routine) and hair growth goals. My “normal” routine already works well so I’m excited about the possible gains that I can achieve by adding these goodies to my product arsenal!

So without further adieu, let’s get to the new routine!

Ayurvedic Hair Care – Products and Plan (Part One)

Stepping Up My Hair Care Game With Ayurveda!

Ayurvedic hair care has been a topic that has sparked my interest recently. I’ve been reading and watching videos (particularly YouTuber CurlyProverbz) about  the strengthening and growth benefits that Ayurvedic treatments offer.  “Ayurveda” is a holistic healing system created in India more than 3,000 years ago.  The basis of this system is the promotion of good health with treatments geared toward helping specific health issues using natural, organic ingredients.

When it comes to caring for my hair, I do my very best to keep things as simple as possible.  My hair care regimen has worked well with keeping my hair healthy and growing steadily, which is great!  My Mid-Year, Mid-Life Glow Up Project is in FULL EFFECT and now I’m ready to take my hair care routine up another notch with the help of Ayurvedic hair products.

This post (Part One) will cover all of the products that I am using.

Shrimp Scampi with Zucchini Noodles

Guilt-Free and Oh So Delish!

Shrimp scampi over rice or pasta is one of my  favorite meals. It tastes so good but with all the added butter used in the traditional recipe, it’s not the healthiest meal to eat on a regular basis.  There are many rice and pasta dishes that I wish I could get away with eating every single day!  But of course that it’s not the best thing healthwise. My green smoothie life has sent me on a mission to find recipes that are healthy AND delicious! I’m all about better nutrition, but I also love GOOD food.

My Post Green Smoothie Cleanse Follow-Up Plan

Where I Am Going From Here?

So after a triumphant nine-pound weight loss on J.J. Smith’s 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse, where do I go from here?   Many people finish the program with concerns about regaining the weight that was lost.  I’m no different! After dedicating the time, focus and energy that it took to get such amazing results, I have every intention on continuing with a healthy lifestyle and steady weight loss!

I’m now one week “post-green smoothie cleanse.” First, I wanted to make sure to wean myself off of it properly. J.J. Smith strongly advises doing this since immediately going back to eating meat and other “regular” solid foods can cause major bloating and discomfort, not to mention weight gain. With all of this in mind, here is what I’ve done so far along with my current eating plan.
