My Review:

My hair is pretty thick and curly. Plus, every two weeks, I'm compelled to dye the grey strands of hair that grow along my hairline. Argh! Between the heat and color, my hair routine could lead to very damaged hair. To stay on top of it and keep my hair on my head, I'm constantly searching for conditioners that have enough moisture to hydrate my hair. This one has it.

I know when I've hit the hair conditioner jackpot because soon after I apply it to my wet hair I can feel it being transformed from hay to threads of silk. Giovanni Smooth as Silk Deeper Moisture Conditioner has that wow factor. The amazing part and real win? Because it's sulfate free, this is a product I can share with my daughter.

I've been using Smooth as Silk Deeper Moisture for about a year and it seems to be doing wonders for my hair. The breaking has been reduced to a minimum and my scalp is not itchy anymore.

Lately, I've been trying other products by Giovanni and I'm pleased with the results. They're priced reasonably. I'm usually able to pick up a huge bottle of Giovanni's shampoos and conditioners for about $14.99 at Winners or Marshalls. You could also buy it online.

Try it and see how it grows!

Parkas for 2015 Winter in Toronto

2015's fall/winter in Toronto has been pretty mild but the cold, snowy days of winter have started. If you don't have a good winter coat yet, I suggest you get out there and find one ASAP. Finding the right coat at a good price is not easy but I think I can help.

Check post, updated in 2018, on where I've find warm winter coats or parkas in Toronto.

Here are some places where I think you may get lucky...

From Curly to Straight in Less Than 1 Hour

My hair has grown a lot since I stopped relaxing. The transition took a long time, about two years, so I'm not about to damage it again. Wearing my hair natural has helped my hair to gain strength and thickness. But sometimes I just want to wear it straight and that means being careful not to damage it.

You've been sending me question about blowouts and how I go from curly to straight without doing severe damage. When it comes to hair growth, I have two key pieces of advice for you. Make sure to give your natural hair moisture and go the extra mile to protect it from heat. That's how I achieved the results in the before and after growth pic below.

These results are all me. I haven't been to a hairstylist in a very long time. Not because I can't find a good one, there are many talented stylists in Toronto. I just prefer to do my hair myself myself. Actually, anyone that knows me will tell you that I LOVE♥ doing my own hair. It comes out exactly how I want it to.


Von Doughnuts on Danforth

The doughnut in this pic is not just any doughnut, it's a Caramel Salt N' Pepa doughnut from Von Doughnuts. It is absolutely delish! I discovered Von one evening strolling along the Danforth with my family after dinner. As soon as we saw the big orange sign and my daughter's favorite word "Doughnuts", we had to check it out.

I'm hooked now but not just because of the doughnuts. I absolutely love the vibe of this place. It's just chill. The people who work there make it even better. My favorite is Nora, we bonded over doughnuts. Well, actually, she's the only Von employee I have met.  As you can see in the pick below, by the time we left, Nora was blowing good-bye kisses. We love her and we'll be back.

We dropped in a little too close to closing time so we only had the Caramel Salt N' Pepa and a few lightly sugared doughnut holes to choose from. But Miss Nora made sure we knew what doughnuts to come back for by reading off the list of flavors …
