Believe me when I tell you that everything is temporary. Everything. There’s not a thing in the world that will not change, including you.
Q:Hey Fran, How can I avoid the tiny holes that appear after shaving legs? What type of razor would you recommend?
Ahhh, yes. Strawberry legs! I usually pour some dark brown sugar (it’s usually covered in molasses, making the grains moist and less harsh for those with sensitive skin) into some coconut oil. I then rub my legs down with the mixture to soften and exfoliate the skin. This will also loosen up the hair at the root, so when you start shaving, it will give you a higher and cleaner cut. The spots won’t disappear completely (you’re better off waxing!) but it most definitely helps minimize the appearance over time. Essentially, keeping your legs moisturized daily and exfoliated before shaving is key!
P.S. I don’t have specific razors I recommend but make sure to not use the same one over and over again. That build up of bacteria and dirt actually makes the “dots” darker. Hope that helps!
How To Use The Shea Moisture Curling Gel Souffle

I know a lot of you would like to know how to use the Shea Moisture Curling Gel Souffle. A couple of years ago I tried this product and I did not care for it. I applied it as if I was applying regular hair gel (I used too much of it), and I have to say my hair was a greasy sticky mess! Not a good look.
After playing around with it, I decided to give it another shot and I figured out how to use it. I have to say that it is definitely a staple when it comes to refreshing an old hairstyle. I love it! I get a crazy shine using it and it makes my hair so soft!
I like to pair this product with the Hold and Shine Moisture Mist for additional shine and softness. Both available in Target, Walmart, Sally Beauty Supply, Walgreens, and SheaMoisture.com
This is an easy to rinse, no build up, light weight gel. I love to use it for old hair styles when I do not feel like co-washing. It is great for all hair types. This includes, different textures, transitioning, chemically treated hair, and of course natural hair.
