    • Thank you Edith
    • You are a very thoughtful husband. I'm not an expert on makeup. But I love shopping. I was impressed with Sisley brushes, which are made by Raphael. Raphael has been a master maker of brushes for artists since 1793. The big department stores will give you an extra gift with purchase now too. For example, if you buy from Neiman Marcus, you can get a nice bag filled with beauty samples for free. That's what I would do.  I also love Trinny London. The T Kit is very unique, compact and great for travel or purse. Estee Lauder has a beautiful limited edition set called Brushed by Fame. The lovely white marble design might look pretty with your bathroom decor.  Good luck with your purchase!   
    • Living with frizzy hair really sucks. Frizzy hair is hard to love. It’s not sleek and silky, it’s not curly and adorable and it’s not wavy and sexy. It’s just…frizzy.

Diet too plays an important role in keeping the skin and hair healthy.The Best Foods for Hair Growth Eggs, Berries, Spinach, Fatty Fish, Sweet Potatoes, Nuts Seeds All the Food Products are loaded with beneficial compounds and vitamins that promote healthy hair Causes for frizzy hair Your hair can get dry because your scalp doesn't make enough oil to moisturize your hair,  or your hair lets moisture escape. Your scalp isn't making enough moisture. As you age, your hair naturally makes less oil. Since the roots are under your skin, dry scalp goes along with dry hair. Frizz occurs due to a lack of moisture in the hair. This causes hair to seek moisture from the air around it, which is why humidity often makes matters worse.  In addition to the weather and hair’s lack of moisture,  There are many reasons that can leave your hair more vulnerable to frizz.  How to tame frizzy hair Choose a sulfate-free shampoo. Always use a conditioner. Let your hair air dry 90% of the way before blow-drying. Use a hydrating mask once a week. Incorporate coconut oil into your hair routine.
