The International Hair & Beauty Show is coming up this weekend at the Meadowlands Expo Center! I’ll be running the healthy hair forum where we’ll be discussing everything from transitioning to natural hair, creating a healthy regimen, moisturizing, etc. The works!
More info and tickets here.
Also, check your inboxes today! I’m hitting up the 10 winners of my complimentary tickets as we speak <3
See you there??
Q:Hey Fran! I love your blog. I have a question about sweat! I have really sweaty palms and feet, I'd say 70% of the time, no matter what I'm doing or what the temperature is, my feet and hands sweat. It's quite bad, I don't even like shaking people's hands. Do you know of any remedies or anything that'll help stop or decrease it from happening?
Clammy crew! I had the same issue with my hands for years! Still do, at times. A good trick to try is rubbing some witch hazel on your palms (and feet) and then rinsing with cold water. Pat your hands dry with a clean towel. Do this a few times a week and you should notice a major change! It’s usually hormonal or anxiety induced for me. Are you a worry wart? What’s making you nervous? Look at your diet, too! Make sure you’re giving your body tons of awesome nutrients (fresh fruit, greens, nuts, sun, air, water, etc) on a daily basis. Another trick I remember seeing my grandma use was a warm tea soak! Soak your hands and/or feet into a bowl of black tea (4-5 bags) and let it simmer for 25 min. Before bed and as many times a week as necessary. Also dope for people with smelly feet.
Hope that helps <3
Vitacost.com is also a cheap online vendor. Plus free shipping on orders over $49 ($5 otherwise). I get all my body and hair care products there (natural soap, vitamins, natural cream shave, oils, aloe vera, Aubrey organics). Way cheaper than Whole Foods. Plus they have shopping filters so you can shop for vegetarian, vegan or gluten free foods and products.
