Spa Treatments #3

Image via Google Images Looking for more ways to pamper yourself? I always am. And these days that can get very expensive. That is exactly why I am sharing information that I read on easy, non expensive ways to pamper yourself right from home.

Do you want super-lustrous hair? Did you know that massaging your scalp with warm oil eases anxiety and smooths your hair so it looks shiny and glossy? Yes! It really does according to Daniel Krasofski, director of spa services at One Spa in L.A.

Here’s how to do it!

1. Heat up a few tablespoons of sesame, sweet almond or olive oil- it should be warm, but comfortable to the touch.

2. Before a shower, dip your fingers into the oil, and start massaging at the nape of the neck. Continually redipping, cover your entire scalp, moving up to your hairline.

3. Place a towel around your head and relax for 20 minutes.

4. In the shower, add shampoo directly to hair (do not get it damp first)- this allows the shampoo to breakdown the oil so it will wash away easily. Later and rinse.

Yields: 1 application

That’s it! Another easy way to pamper yourself, relax, and great some great looking hair! Stay tuned for more Spa Treatments from Eat, Love, Shop.

30 Day Memoirs- The tale of a picture #1

Fresh Color... Thanks Revlon!

Today I will be starting a 30 Day Memoir section on my blog. Each day I will post a new picture to tell a tale. Exciting right? Of course! What better way to start than with my latest change? Out with the old and in with the new. Hair that is! I usually keep my hair two tones. A sun bliss blond in the spring and summer and then a deeper brown in the fall and winter. Thanks to Revlon, dying my hair always affordable and is easy as pie. Every fall I use Revlon Color Silk in Dark Brown (30) and it comes out looking great with all over coverage and it’s inexpensive which makes me even happier!


The Hair Academy of Kirksville Missouri

The Hair Academy 110 is located on Franklin Street in small town Kirksville, Missouri. It is a school of beauty that one can either attend to obtain their cosmetology License or to get hair cuts, dyes, manicures, pedicures, etc for a fraction of the cost. The Hair Academy has low prices on everything because your work is done by a student. I have been to the Hair Academy multiple times over the last 3 years. I have only had one bad experience out of all the times I have been there. I enjoy going there because I have students that know all the latest trends and discount pricing. I usually get the “works.” The works is a hair cut, style, and eyebrow wax for only $10! That is a great price! I love doing this because then I usually tip my stylist another $10 or $15 and they are like super happy!

The only downfall to the whole visit is that it is very time-consuming. You must remember that they are students and even though they may be nearing the end of the classes, they still don’t have the pace as say a stylist that has been cutting for 10 years. When I go get my hair cut, depending on the student they give me, I am usually there for an hour and a half. I know it seems like a lot for a cut and wax. It just depends on what you are looking for. I love the price cut and I get the opportunity to help locals. So that is why I visit. The service is great and everyone is really friendly there.

Overall I really like the Hair Academy and will continue going there and the price is hard to beat. Actually, I am pretty sure they are the lowest price in town. I always come out with a smile on my face even when I just have a trim. The students are well-trained and very friendly.
