Short hair is starting to become a trend, but if you're anything like me this a trend you refuse to hop in on. My hair has almost always been long and I don't plan on cutting it short anytime soon. I'm often asked which brand of extensions I use when in truth the only thing unnatural about my hair is the color every once in a while. One of the biggest downsides of having very long hair is that it is difficult to maintain, and here are my five favorite products that I use to maintain my long hair.

1. Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deep Conditioning Treatment

This product is a lifesaver. Based on your needs and hair type; you can get it in Miracle Moist, Miracle Smooth, Miracle Strong, Miracle Shine, and Miracle Color. I like to alternate between Miracle Moist and Miracle Smooth, they both strengthen my hair noticeably after one use. The best part of this product is that it is a simple three-minute conditioning treatment that you can do in the shower. Rinse with cool water and it is literally a miracle.

2. Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser Split-End Bandage

I use a dollop of this product every night on the ends of my hair. It doesn't remove split ends, but it prevents them from getting worse and if you use it when you don't have any split ends it helps prevent them. If you're like me and dread getting haircuts but also hate split ends, this product is your new best friend.

3. TRESemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray

One of my secrets to maintaining healthy long hair is not blow drying my hair, I wash my hair at night, braid it, and sleep on it. I don't even own a hair dryer. My main reason for this is that it takes forever, but another reason is to avoid the damage that blow drying can do. Although I have eliminated heat damage through blow drying my hair, I can't manage to stay away from curling and straightening my hair. When I do curl or straighten my hair, I use this heat tamer spray beforehand which creates a protective shield on the hair that prevents damage.

4. MOROCCANOIL Treatment

I had a rather unpleasant incident with my hair thinning when I was in high school after I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism, and this product did not only restore my hair but improved it. It is a natural product that helps thicken and strengthen hair. It's expensive and only available online and at some salons, but totally worth it.

5. Yes to coconut Curl Defining Smoother

This product is meant for curly hair and I find a lot of good use of it since my hair is very wavy, but the hydration that comes from this natural product is unbeatable. It's similar to Morrocanoil with natural ingredients, but has a much lighter formula and is more easily accessible, you can get it online and also at Target.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.


On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinology who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
