Rolls and Curves’ 2016 Favorites

I’ve never written a favorites post before, but I decided it was a good idea to write one since I’ve opened my blog up to other types of reviews. I’m going to start doing monthly favorites, but first I’m going to summarize my favorite things and products that I’ve used and loved over the last year! I’m sorry this is a little late. I’ve been recovering from my first surgery to treat my endometriosis. If I have a  full review of one of the things listed, I’ll link it. Some of the pictures are mine, but the ones that aren’t mine were pulled from Google for illustrative purposes.

How To Survive Winter With Eczema or Extremely Dry Skin

If you’re like me and have really dry skin that sometimes breaks out in rashes, there’s a large chance you could actually have a condition called eczema.

If you think you have eczema, the first thing you should do is make an appointment with a doctor to make sure it’s not something else like a fungal infection or a basic rash that’s not necessarily eczema. It’s also possible that you could be using a product or eating something you’re allergic to.  Most cases of eczema are easily resolved, but some people like myself have extremely persistent eczema that shows up year round, but is the worst in winter.

*Always patch test products before introducing them to your routine, especially if you have sensitive eczema prone skin.

My Red Hair Guide: Achieving and Maintaining Vibrant Red Hair

I’ve been in love with red hair ever since I was a little kid. I think it looks particularly striking with my blue eyes and fair skin. My hair has been every shade of the rainbow and everything from jet black to platinum blonde, but the hardest color to achieve and maintain is bright red. I’ll start this by saying that I am not a professional colorist, although I did go to beauty school and complete the hair color unit. This is not a how to guide, and if you decide to follow it you’re doing so at your own risk. I’m only writing this because a ton of people have asked me how I achieve and maintain my color.
