Quick Winter Tips & Updates

YouTube is a site that has an endless amount of helpful, funny, and entertaining info. I’ve recently gave a shot at making some videos. Initially I thought there was too much work involved, and I wasn’t going to do another. Well, as you can see, that changed! There are two available now, and more to come. MzDezyB on YouTube!!

Everyone knows winter is approaching. That means dry air, cold temps, itchy skin, and dry hair. You may not be able to do much about the air or temps, but you do have control over your skin and hair!! Here are some QUICK  WINTER  TIPS:
1.     Moisturize your skin with a warm bath. Add a couple drops of your favorite essential oil and relax. Blot your skin when drying to retain some of the helpful oils. An alternative to essential oil could be jojoba or olive oil. Just add about ¼ cup to a full tub.
2.     Hot Oil treatments are great to protect, strengthen, and soothe dry/brittle hair and scalp. Find a helpful recipe H E R E !
3.     Don’t forget about wearing protective styles to guard your hair from unnecessary breakage. Hats, scarves, dry air, and hair ties can all damage or weaken strands. Examples:
a.     Buns: can be worn casually or more formal. They guard the ends of your hair and minimize rubbing on strands.
b.    Twisted Styles: You’re able to wear multiple styles within this, and minimize manipulation of strands. Hats are still able to be worn with minimal stress to hair.

Shea Butter is an all purpose natural moisturizer, anti inflammatory that’s full of vitamin A and E. It can be used on both the skin and hair! Shea butter is easily absorbed by the skin, has little to no scent, and is a humectant (holds moisture). Shea butter is a must have on deck product for the winter!
