Pouring from big bottle of shampoo and conditioner into little (under 3oz) bottle of shampoo and conditioner is not only extra eco-un-friendly but also comes with risks and no rewards.   We’ve had crushed bags and burst bottles of conditioner all over our clothes and running out of product just a couple days after we get to our destination being left with drying hotel hair “care” (if you can even call it caring).  With those problems in mind, our best conditioner bar became our best travel hack.

The Toxicity of Hustle Culture and What We Can Look Like Instead

But “slow living” is trending up and competing for the lives of the youngest workforce with hustle culture. On one hand we still have mainstream and social media push to “secure the bag”, “get on the grind”, and celebration of workaholism. Then there’s the backlash, the push towards work life balance and a lot of young people are citing European lifestyles, siestas, later starting times, shorter commutes, and the four day work week while still maintaining or even excelling in productivity as their reasons why.

Here’s Why You Should Always Wear Your Hair Down to Surf

Living on North Shore, O'ahu I was surrounded by competitive and professional surfers. They all had their hair down (just look at action shots of Alana Blanchard, her sun soaked blonde hair reaches past her waist and she doesn’t tie it up) but I thought loose hair was only for the professionals, once you got good at surfing.

When they can’t pick it out it doesn’t go through and get to be recycled, instead the entire batch goes to landfill. Even the stuff that was supposed to be there.
