Everyone should care about their hair and keep it healthy, and people should use makeup as a form of self expression. 

Hair is the most beautiful thing that a woman gets, we have to keep it hydrated. I love putting on makeup, especially when I'm sad or I am going through something. This is one of the easy things that makes me feel better, because sometimes I want to feel cute too.

I care about it because I want women to feel better when they are going into a breakout or through problems that are really important in their life. For adolescents, I would love to support each other as “WOMEN” that we are. In society what prevents women supporting each other is it other woman.

Studies have shown that the use of makeup can greatly improve female self-esteem, as long as it is applied with the intention of highlighting features and disguising imperfections. This evidence supports the idea that taking care of your hair and putting on makeup can be good, rather than damaging to a person's self-esteem, because it explains clearly.

Sometimes men are one of the biggest reasons why women feel that way, because all they want is a cute, fine and perfect girl, which makes his fiancé or girlfriend feel like they have imperfections. Here comes the thing that I said before: the perfect and most beautiful thing that a women can have is fine and healthy hair. That’s what makes a girl more beautiful than she is. More than that, the other thing we can do to built ourselves up is support each other as the women/girls that we are.
