Are you a hot tool addict? It may be time to rethink your ways. While you may love blow drying or flat ironing your tresses, did you know you’re sabotaging your hair by using a hot tool all the time? Hate to say it but you’re probably causing severe trauma to your lovely locks. Temperatures used in blow-drying, flat-iron straightening, and hot curling processes can be high enough to cause cracks in the cuticle layer, frayed and split ends, chipped and ragged cuticles, faded color, diminished curl, increased frizz and broken strands.
No matter how excited you are to go away on a trip, packing can actually be stressful. Deciding what pants, skirts, dresses, shoes (flats, heels, and sneakers?), jackets, tops, can be stressful enough, especially if you have to plan each day out. But in addition, there are all your toiletries…products you need every day, regardless of how short a time you are going away.
