You're describing my hair -- so I can tell you firsthand : ) * Wash or rinse IN THE MORNING (sleeping on curls wrecks them) * Comb while conditioner (or ACV) is still in hair (no-pooing is GREAT for curls, btw) * Rinse (after combed out) with COLD water (this is very important!!!!) * Pat soflty with a towel, to get out excess water. DO NOT DRY with towel. Have her shake it out too. NO PRODUCT NEEDED AT ALL!!!! (Sometimes I use a touch of moose -- but I usually...
We are going camping in a few days up in Northern California -- with my best friend who only very recently recovered from a horrible bout of Lymes disease (which she got it in Northern California, btw). She is recommending highly that we all use DEET (research shows 3% of all ticks in the area we will be carry Lymes disease). Anyone know of a very good all-natural alternative for me, dh and our children to use? And any research on how effective it would be compared to a...

The smooth secure silicone of the DIva is sooooo much more comfortable!
Jojoba oil all the way! Since I started using it 3 years ago -- to wash AND to moisturize -- all break-outs have gone away (and I suffered for DECADES).
I LOVE these! I bought my set at Bed bath and Beyond, for super cheap. I only use it for upper lip -- which has thickened and darkened a bit over the years. This whips it right off -- much faster than the horrible chemical hair remover I used to use in the early 90s (before I knew what green meant : ) AND -- it exfoliates your skin! I wouldn't bother using it for legs or underarms -- too much work. But for facial touchup, it's perfect! Marni
Hi, I can't believe I am posting here...now...in the 11th hour of trying to decide whether or not to go for #3, We are NOT young. I am going to be 44 next month. We have 2 amazing, attached, loving girls ages 4.5 and 7 (this month). Having a third does NOT make sense financially. I was the bread winner, and stopped working fulltime when I had dd#1 -- and have loved being home for every little thing they go thru. Going from 1 to 2 kids -- was TOUGH. I thought I was...

No more paper coffee cups. ONLY bring my own stainless. Start a community compost at our townhouse complex.

I agree. At home -- we drink only out of glass (from the age of 1 up -- prior to 1, it's just nursing anyhow : ) But for school, travel, being out-and-about -- Funtainers (stainlesssteel) is the way to go!!!! We go through about 1 per 1.5 years per child. That's only $15 every 18 months per child!!! (As long as you don't put them in the dishwasher).
