What Causes Less Damage to Hair--Blow Dryer or Towel-Drying?

The debate is on which method causes the least damage to hair.  If you are the type that prefers to towel-dry you can be too rough and end up tangling it.  However, if you remember to just gently blot your wet hair instead of using a vigorous rub, your hair will be spared from damage. 

Now, on the other hand, you might be tempted to use a high heat too long when using your blow dryer.  As a result, hair can suffer damage and frizz.  So be careful and remember to be kind to your hair regardless of the method you choose!

My Favorite Homemade Moisturizing Facial Mask

If you want a wonderful facial mask for dry skin and don't want to spend a fortune just check your kitchen.   All you need for one great mask is an overripe banana. Crush it well with a fork until it is mushy.  Apply this mixture to your freshly washed face.  Leave this banana mixture on your face for at least ten minutes and then wash away.  Your skin will feel better and be naturally moisturized at the same time!
