21 Dec [CLOSED] Stress Less and Avoid Grey Hairs
Am I the only one that becomes more stressed over the festive season? I start worrying where everyone is going to stay, whether there is enough food for everyone at Christmas lunch and keep having to check if I went overboard with the tinsel and Christmas lights, this year. Of course, everyone finds their spot to sleep, there is always too much food and you can never go overboard with the festive cheer – but that’s not to say I won’t gain a few grey hairs before coming to these conclusions on my own. To help save you from greys, I put together a quick list of ways you can stop yourself from over-stressing!
Plan fun things to do
If you’re worried about your family getting into petty arguments (like every family, I know!) plan fun activities for everyone to do. Whether it’s board games, playing soccer at the local park, or volleyball at the beach, have a few activities ready for when your family arrives, to enjoy the time together.
Take time for yourself
The festive season can get overwhelming and you might even find yourself feeling anxious. It’s important to set aside some time for yourself to relax, take everything in and catch up! Go take a walk, cosy up with a book that you have been wanting to read, or binge watch a few episodes of a series you never got around to watching – better yet, grab an afternoon nap while your family are keeping the kids busy!
Do something kind for others
The festive season is all about giving back and it’s easy to get carried away with grand gestures. Remember that a random act of kindness goes a long way, so volunteer some time to walk dogs, donate blood, sign up to be an organ donor or buy a meal for a homeless person. Surround yourself with positivity and help the less fortunate.
Go into the holiday season without too many expectations and be grateful that you have an opportunity to spend time with family and loved ones. Don’t take for granted the small gestures and do go out of your way to reciprocate and show your appreciation.
Don’t go grey over the small things
Most importantly, don’t go grey over the small things. Yes, we all get ahead of ourselves, worrying about silly things like how we look and who we will be seeing, but don’t let that take away from special time with your loved ones.
And if all else fails, cover up your greys!
Style Secret is an easy-to-use spray that effectively covers up regrowth and grey hairs, keeping your hair looking and feeling great.
It’s really easy to use; you simply wash and style your hair as you usually would hold the can 10-20cm away and spray along the partings or on areas where grey regrowth is obvious. Allow your hair to dry for a few minutes and you’re good to go! No more grey hairs or regrowth to worry about.
Style Secret does not contain chemicals or peroxides, so you don’t have to worry about causing any damage to your hair. The formula is made from silicone to coat the hair follicle with pigment, which washes off with your usual shampoo and conditioning routine.

Style Secret is available in 6 different shades and costs R360 per can. You can purchase yours from selected salons and online at www.stylesecret.co.za. Don’t forget to follow Style Secret on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

I am the creator behind By Megan Kelly, mom of two boys, named Axl (4-years old) and Eli (1-year old), and local business owner of Dr. Design. I live on copious amounts of coffee, spend my free time listening to podcasts while I garden or journal, and really enjoy baking fresh treats for my family. On the weekends, you’ll likely find me exploring our local city, looking for new family-friendly places for our kids, but that’s only if I am not already shouting at the soccer on TV. I support Tottenham and enjoy pretending to know what I am doing in the Fantasy League, but really I am just in it for the laughs. I can be bribed with chocolate and will never admit to having too much makeup – although, I probably do.
