“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.

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!)

As the weather gets warmer, it becomes increasingly important to be mindful of what goes on your skin. We all know that sunscreen is crucial for protecting against the destructive effects of ultraviolet light. So put on some SPF and you’re set, right?
