What are you thankful for? Reflecting on your hair journey

What are you thankful for? Reflecting on your hair journey

This time of year might mean candied sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie, but it’s also about giving thanks, reflection, and showing gratitude for all aspects of one's life. 

Approaching this coming Turkey Day, let’s reflect on our personal growth and the unique journeys we’ve been on by getting into the spirit of the season – by being thankful.

Below, we’ll look at how giving thanks and practicing gratitude can help you achieve your hair goals and give you an appreciation for how far you’ve come. 

Practicing gratitude

Gratitude is strongly associated with greater happiness. It helps people feel more grounded and optimistic, it can support our health, and it allows us to relish those small personal triumphs. It also gives us the opportunity to reorient our focus from what we don’t have to instead see our blessings.

People who practice gratitude are also more likely to make progress towards their goals. Do you see what we’re getting at? Achieving our hair goals are greatly aided when we take a moment to ask, “what are we thankful for?”.

One method to take the sentiment of this holiday and maintain it through the year is keeping a gratitude journal. We know how that sounds; it can feel contrived. Especially if you’re already struggling with typical stress. However, stress is a common trigger for everyday hair shedding, which can cause…you guessed it, more stress!

So it’s absolutely essential we manage our everyday stress for our health and wellness. Just like taking Hair La Vie’s Clinical Hair Vitamins is an extension of your beauty regimen and selfcare. Think of practicing gratitude by journaling a part as well.

Reflecting on your hair journey: Where you began

Hair has always been an important part of how we present ourselves and our identity. So, it can be stressful to experience occasional thinning hair and breakage.

What led you on your selfcare hair journey? For many of us, it was a growing awareness of unnecessary chemicals, fillers, and synthetics in conventional hair products and the effects they bestowed on our mane and wellness.

For you, perhaps the toughest part in figuring out your hair journey is where to start. Learning about haircare is like any challenge in life — through research, trial and error, and patience. 

Everybody has a different head of hair that requires different care, so once you discover the products that nourish your scalp, roots, and strands from the inside out, the easier it will be to maintain. 

Bonus tip for beginners

We recommend these two first baby-steps. For silky strands, try the Hair La Vie Mask for a moisturize pick-me-up, and sip the Foundation Beauty Elixir beverage mix for a healthy dose of revitalizing whole-body nutrients. With that duo, you’ll be well on your way to clean beauty.

Finally, celebrate where you are now

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”

We’ve come a long way! Every unique hair journey includes ups and downs, incremental progress and even some missteps. But we’re playing the long game when it comes to our hair health — the most important thing to remember is to take it one step at a time.

Maybe when you started your journey, you wore a hat in public or avoided a middle part. But now, your renewed sense of confidence and glossy gorgeous strands are night and day. Or perhaps the progress you’ve made is only noticeable to you and that’s okay too! 

The point is you persevered and invested in your future self and that deserves celebration this season. Now we know practicing gratitude can help foster resilience, and we’re all about helping bring out your confidence and inner strength.
