When I was pregnant with my son back in 2001, my hair took on a life of its own. I had always had a natural wave to my hair, but during this second pregnancy my hair went super curly and has stayed that way for the past 14 years. I have to admit, it has taken me a long LONG time to accept and actually start to enjoy this new hair texture of mine. But there is one aspect of it that, no matter how hard I try, I will never be able to be happy about....FRIZZ. The moment there is more than 2% humidity in the air, my hair is 3ft wide and becomes a constant battle. And that's just in the summer. The winter months bring static and dryness so there is no winning against my wild hair without some much needed help.
Thanksgiving is a time that is intended as a day for giving gratitude for the wonderful bounty of food that the land provides us at the end of the Fall harvest season. But more often than not, the intention for gratitude gets overlooked and replaced with a tendency to overindulge on calorie-rich, high fat and high sugar foods. The result is a feeling like the button on our pants is going to pop off and take out an eye of a loving relative, and a potentially dangerous slide into unhealthy eating habits that last right through the Christmas season.
