Quickie: Bring Back Natural Hair Highlights After Winter.

Natural highlights always seem to dull during the long winter months. Boost back highlights, by adding a small amount of lemon juice to shampoo. Adding only a couple drops, will help the sun brighten your locks naturally, without bleaching. For getting a lighter effect, add more lemon juice and let it sit for a couple minutes, before washing out.

Stupid Tip of the Day: Freezing the Odor Out of Your Shoes.


There are many tips out there that people say are true, I try to give you the tips that are true, and point out the ones that aren’t.

I heard freezing your shoes will remove odor. Fact is, freezing the shoes can sometimes only freeze the bacteria and fungi that is making the shoes smell in the first place, so once it is frozen, some top layer, bad stuff, may die off, and the smell will go away. But, once your feet warm up the shoes, the bacteria and fungi that didn’t die off, will thaw, have an extra moisture source and begin to grow again. And, may make the situation worse.

So, freezing is not the way to go, kill odor with vinegar. Wiping shoes down with a vinegar soaked cotton ball and letting it dry will kill the bad stuff and reduce the smell. Keep this in mind, bacteria and fungus can penetrate deep so I recommend rubbing shoes down with vinegar once a week, even if there is no odor.
