8 Tips for Color Treated Hair Care

My latest hair style is brown all over color with blonde and red highlights.  I love the look, but the blonde can turn brassy, and the red fades too quickly.  I have to take steps to protect the color and keep my hair healthy so it doesn't turn in to a dry, frizzy mess.  Here are some tips and tricks for color treated hair care.

DIY Coconut Oil Face Scrub Recipe

Now that the temperatures are down in the teens and twenties every day, my skin is feeling dry.  Even worse, it's dull, which makes me look and feel worse.

DIY facial scrubs are hard to make because your facial skin is a lot more sensitive than the rest of your body.  This scrub uses brown sugar, which is much more gentle than the white sugar or salt that other DIY scrub recipes call for.

It also uses coconut oil, and my regular readers know how much I {heart} coconut oil!

DIY Coconut Oil Face Scrub Recipe



Ingredients

1 part coconut oil
1 part organic brown sugar

Directions

1.  Mix equal parts coconut oil and brown sugar in a bowl.  If coconut oil is too hard to stir, heat for 5-10 seconds in the microwave to soften.  Let cool completely before using.
2.  Gently scrub your face with a few teaspoons of product to slough off dead skin cells.
3.  Rinse well.

You can make as much or as little as you want.  Store in a mason jar or other jar with a lid.  Since this recipe doesn't have water, it doesn't need a preservative.

You can use this scrub all over your body.  It works very well on your hands and feet, too!

Holiday Gifts for Men: Frigo Revolution Wear

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Frigo. All opinions are 100% mine.

Ladies, have you gotten your man his holiday gift yet?

Are you like me and have no idea what to get him?  Does the thought of wandering through the tool and outdoor aisles make you shake in fear?

Have no fear!  I'm here to share with you the perfect gift for your man this holiday season.  

Most men don't think about what brand of underwear, so they just grab the kind they've worn for years.  Tell him to stop wearing underwear and start wearing Frigo Revolution Wear.  

There is a patented cooling barrier in the front, so he stays comfortable all day. 

Many men complain about the waistband in their underwear, but the Revolution Wear is made with a comfortable waistband made with moisture wicking material that keeps him cool in the summer.  

Vents on the side to keep him cool while he's working or playing in the summer or the winter.  

Perhaps the best feature for men?  The hem stays in place.  They won't ride up, even when he's moving around a lot.  

Ladies, let's be honest.  If you buy your man new underwear, it isn't just a gift for him.  It's a gift for you too because this line is as sexy as it functional!
