Summer Is On the Way

At least, I think it is. We’ve had most of a week of dark, drizzly rain here lately, so it’s not looking particularly summery. About a week ago, we had temperatures up in the 70’s and there was a definite promise of summer in the air.

Which got me to thinking about sunscreen.

And then I got the new notice from L’Bri that their sunscreen products are on special this June!

Have you tried their sunscreen? Combining aloe with zinc oxide, soothing botanicals and moisturizing, antioxidant-rich fruit oils to replenish moisture and protect, they don’t leave any chalky feeling as they shield you from UVA and UVB.

Go on over and check out the specials. And while you’re there, you may find something else you’ll love. I particularly like their fragrance-free lotions and body wash, and the Aloe Vera Barbadensis Jelly. If you get a little too much sun, it is marvelous for cooling the burn.

So don’t wait. Grab a cold drink and head on over.

L’Bri–Pure and Natural.

A Little About Me

Photo by Dawn ThumbnailI don’t share much about myself sometimes, mainly because I don’t want to seem like I’m hoping for sympathy I suppose. Yes, I’ve been through a few things, but I’ve made it through.

Back in 2004 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. To hurry through the story, I survived chemotherapy and radiation therapy, losing my hair and growing it back again.

Since then, I have recurring symptoms which drive me crazy, but I think they’re a little less now than they had been.

But my scalp has been sensitive to products, which was not helped at all when I began to use a supposedly more natural product that made my hair loss increase drastically after about three months.

Nor was I alone in this. I have a good friend who had the same problem, as did our daughter. Three different people. Three different kinds of hair. Same issue. Unfortunately the company decided it couldn’t be their fault.

But since then, my scalp has been even more sensitive. Everything I tried over the counter either made my scalp break out in huge sores, or it made my hair loss increase. or both!

The salon suggested a product to me, which slowed the hair loss, but unfortunately made my head start breaking out again after a couple weeks. Where do you go from here?

Thankfully our daughter’s hair dresser suggested a product to her, which she loved and then suggested to me. I’ve been using it for nearly eight months now. My hair is filling in, it’s soft and smooth. It’s longer than it has grown in years without split ends.

And no sores on my scalp!

It’s amazing when you find something that works. And not only works, but works well!

Thank you, Tasha and Dawn for introducing me to these products. They’re amazing!
