You Matter! - Selfcare and how it enhances your sense of self - Hair Care Day!

Staying mindful is key to overcoming your past traumas. It is what keeps you present and reminds you of all the wonderful things you are yet to have in your life. It is also a reminder that your present doesn’t always have to be shaped by your past. However, staying mindful is not just about meditation and breathing techniques. It has to do with your everyday routine and how engaged you are with it.

The first advice we got from different therapists and life coaches specialized in treating PTSD is to practice self-care. Give yourself the attention and kindness you need. This will help you establish a good relationship with your body and send positive messages about it to your mind, which will help elevate your sense of self and boost your confidence. It is as if you are supplying yourself with the consideration you need from others. There is also that sense of accomplishment you get when you pamper yourself. As well as the sense of compensation you get when you make room for yourself in your day. 

Schedule a hair day, especially if you are fasting. Your hair needs the extra attention to compensate for the lack of hydration and nourishment. We advise you to prepare a warm bubble bath with your favorite scented shower gel, dim the lights, and give yourself a calming hour as the masks in your hair work their magic.

You’ll need:

1- Raw African’s follicle booster.

2- your choice of Raw African’s Maya or Shea mask.

3- Raw African’s shampoo and conditioner.

4- your choice of Raw African’s Maya or Shea curl enhancer.

Start by applying the follicle booster to your scalp, massage your roots gently to make sure the oil is well absorbed by your scalp. After that, dampen your hair with a water spray until it is well moisturized, then apply your choice of hair mask. Cover your hair with a shower cap.

Have a nice steaming soak in the tub for an hour or so, you can play calming music in the background. Gently massage your body as you relax in the heat of the water. Take in the smell of your shower gel and hold on to the moment. If you find your mind wandering to any thought don’t fight it! Just acknowledge its existence and push it away. Stay focused with your senses, the temperature of the water, the motion of your arms and the water, the smell of the bath, the shower cap on your head, the temperature of your hair in comparison to that of your body, your surroundings, and so on. That will help keep you engaged in the moment and will relax your body and give your mind a break. 

Finish the hour and thoroughly wash your hair with Raw African’s shampoo and conditioner. Remember to add the shampoo to your scalp, and the conditioner to the hair. Apply your choice of Raw African’s curl enhancer and style your hair. Get into your favorite pajamas and enjoy a calm night or a very good night sleep. Remember to stay tuned for more tips to enhance the quality of your life.
