The Wonder of Velcro

I just love my velcro curlers. I usually just shampoo, condition, brush and slightly dry my hair before applying. If your hair is totally wet, it will take a week to dry those curlers. So, let your hair dry to where it is damp or spritz dry hair with a water bottle. Then I apply the medium to big curlers, starting with my bangs and making a row on top of my head and then finishing at the sides. I like to put mine in at an angle. Never take them out until your hair is totally dry. Sometimes I have sprayed hairspray when they are still in--not a good ides--it is like pulling teeth to get those curlers out. I take out my curlers and then spray them with hair spray. All you have to do, once they are removed, is run your fingers through the curls. Velcro gives you a nice soft curl with some height at the roots.

"Thinner By Dinner"

There are some ways to make you look thinner by dinner. One of my favorite authors, Charla Krupp, wrote in her recent book:"How To Never Look Fat Again" makes the suggestion of wearing the right fitting bra, a good control undergarment,(like Spanx), wear tights, wear a dress. I say try to wear heels. It will take pounds off of you. It is amazing how thin you can look just with these helpful hints. Try it and you'll see.

3. Comparing yourself when you were 20.
4. Skipping exercise.
5. Not getting enough sleep.
6. Ignoring your teeth.
7. Overdoing anti-aging treatments.

Hair Styles of Political Ladies

I really like to look at the hair styles of the politician's wives. It is interesting how hair changes with each decade and how hair looks polished on some and terrible on others.
