“Acid” is not typically a word synonymous with hair health – but it should be.
You’ve likely heard of the lemon juice and sunlight trick for lightening hair. When used together, they work to oxidize the pigments in your strands, subtly lightening without bleach or a trip to the salon.
The flip side is that the harsh combination of heat, UV light, and high acidity leaves strands dehydrated and crunchy, not to mention damaged.
Who doesn’t love a soaking in a warm bath with a good book and a glass of something delicious? Added bonus if you add a fragrant, fizzy bath bomb to your bath water.
Unfortunately, far too often store-bought bath bombs smell like you overdid it in the perfume aisle. Not ideal for the scent sensitive folks, or for those who want to avoid synthetic fragrances. Store-bought bath bombs can also contain toxic dyes which have been linked to UTI’s and yeast infections. And at $8 or more a pop, they’re far from economical.
The majority of store-bought cleaning sprays contain endocrine disrupting chemicals that can be harmful to your health. As well, the synthetic fragrances used in these products can irritate those who are sensitive to scents.

I have a thing for tropical prints — palm trees, palm leaves, beach scenes and pineapples. They remind me of relaxing, serene summer days and warm tropical vacations. They also remind me of trips to Australia with sexy 6’3” Australian men. Okay, well maybe not that last part.
Anyway, what I don’t have a thing for is the price tag on some of my favourite framed tropical prints. For example, on a popular art retail website, there’s a black and white tropical palm tree print that is amazing but the price tag is over $200. If that’s within your budget, by all means support artists. (As someone who has sold my original paintings, I’m all for supporting artists!)
