Tip for More Manageable Hair

I was not having a bad hair day, I was having a bad hair week….two weeks actually!  It was heavy, oily, and limp.

It suddenly occurred to me that maybe it was the expensive shampoo and conditioner I was using, which is too heavy for my hair.

I was sharing my hair woes in the locker room and my friend Susan suggested that a little Dawn dish detergent on my hair would take care of it.  It sure did.  I didn’t even have to use the blow dryer, my hair was nice and fluffy again.

Since then, I have done some more reading about hair products and have gone back to experimenting with different combinations of baking soda, borax, apple cider vinegar, and honey a couple of times a week. Big difference.  Just a reminder that although we often think about what we are putting IN our bodies, we also should be mindful of when we are putting ON our bodies.

Fresh and Fermented

Most recently, on Monday mornings, I’ve been doing the aqua fitness class at the Bond Wellness Center, with a very social, chatty, happy group!  What a great way to start a week!  By the way, if you haven’t tried aqua fitness, its a great way to add some variety to your strength and cardio workout.  When I can, I go to Patti’s class at 7 am,  and Bruce’s class at 5/5:30 pm (schedule).

Skin Brushing

This morning, I met a new person in the locker room who was using this brush on her arms.  She told me how effective it is for healthy skin.  I thought it was ironic that she just happened to talk to me about this because unbeknownst to her,  I have been very irritated this winter with dry, itchy skin on my back, my legs, and arms.  I’ve tried moisturizing with Shea butter, vitamin E,  including fatty acids in my diet, and with the recent spring like weather, soaking up some vitamin D.  One, or all are helping a little, but not enough.  Looking forward to trying this.

Stay tuned for results!

“Crap” is Crap

I’ve tried many different anti-fog products for goggles during the many years I’ve been swimming.  I  tried “Cat Crap”.  It is AWFUL.  It works like CRAP.  It made my goggles fog more than ever, and left a greasy film on them.  “Spit”, on the other hand, works great.  I found it at swimoutlet.com.  A little goes a long way, so your Spit will last forever.
