People craft– taking care of ourselves

If you see a photo of a hairstyle, print it from your computer and bring it to your hair stylist.  If the model is younger than you by twenty or more years than me, I ask my hair stylist to make the cut age appropriate.  We can make every day a great hair day.   There are ways to send common hair problems packing with pro tips.  See how below the photo.

Bad-hair flatness?  Use root boosting spray which is filled with hair-volumizing ingredients such as sea salt and panthenol that bulk up strands at the roots.  Spray a mist (such as Nexxus Hydra Light Weightless Moisture Root Lift, $12.99) at just the roots and blow dry.

Bad-hair dullness? Use a shine enhancer.  My fave is Moroccan Argan Oil Weightless Healing mist, $7.99, and it take just a scant amount for a lustrous finish and soft texture.  Some people use a flat iron afterwards, but I don’t want to barbeque my hair.

Bad-hair flyaways? Tame static electricity with John Frieda Full Repair Touch-up Flyaway Tamer for $9.99.  Bad-hair frizz?  A conditioning balm such as Carol’s Daughter Hair Balm for $14.95 will fix it.  Bad-hair greasiness?  Zap it with a powder shampoo such as Batiste Dry Shampoo for $7.99 or Bumble and Bumble Hair Powder for $19.

    Jill, after you use the root-lifted, attach a concentrating mozzel to your hair dryer before you start drying. This keeps the air from creating flyaways and more frizs.

    You’re welcome, Jill. My big hair problem is dullness, and I Rx it with a bit of dry oil spray. With a few more gray hairs every year, hair becomes less shiny.

    Yes, yes, Janessa! Being thin is complicated, though. Fatness is a symptom of emotional challenge. It is the ice berg with a tip showing and huge masses of problems underneath. The knotty drivers below need to be addressed, and it is particularly difficult when people are under stress.

    There are two options, and they are not mutually exclusive. 1, find something other than food to use for self medication. This is exercise you actually enjoy. 2, acknowledge the underlying source of stress. Recognize it and refuse to use food to make the sadness go away. -from Rudyard Rowland (Kathleen’s pen name)

    It is also critical to eat food (healthy choices with healthy portions) that you actually love– I rediscovered cottage cheese with a couple tablespoons of no-added-sugar pineapple. Yum!!
