A couple years ago I wrote and article about being just a mom (but not really) that went viral & two years later…gosh a WHOLE TWO YEARS…I still stand by it. I am a believer in putting your best foot forward–be it in running shoes or a cute pair of boots. I want my kiddies to grow up with a healthy feeling of “I care about what I look like AND how I feel when I step out into the world.” I think I (we all) have a big challenge ahead when it comes to teaching our kids that looks are important, but they are really a by-product of how well we take care of ourselves. The things we eat and the way we treat ourselves show. We wear our food and it comes out our pores. Our eyes tell the world how we feel without saying a word. Our hair, oh, our hair–it tells a whole story of its own. Nutrition, effort, maintenance–we wear it right on our head for the world to see–and it makes a huge impression all of its own.
And–among the many things I do to preserve my health, I rely on Nowlin and his INOA color to treat my hair as gently as possible. Nowlin is treating his new mama clients to something special this month and though I shared on my styleberry facebook page, I thought I would share here too. If you’ve never gone to see him before, here’s a new reason why. Tell him I sent you. You won’t ever regret it. :)
