Think hydration – and you probably think water, the body’s essential fluid. But did you know you can eat your H2O too? That’s when you choose foods that are high in water content. Some varieties of fruit and veggies are more than 85 percent water. On hot summer days, these foods, along with other fluids can help you stay hydrated. And there’s a bonus – Water-rich fruits and veggies can also help replace key minerals (electrolytes) which your body sheds when you sweat.
Enjoy a thirst-quenching menu ~ When the temperature rises, make a splash in your daily diet with these tasty ideas:
Super salads ~ Watermelon, oranges, tomatoes, cantaloupe, berries, celery and cucumbers salads are all flush with fluid. These water-rich foods make great low-calorie snacks too!
Berry-delicious smoothies. Add berries — fresh or frozen — to low-fat milk, almond or coconut milk.
Summer salsas. These can be made from vegetables, fruits or a combination of both. Enjoy your favorite variety as a snack — dip into it with cut-up veggies or whole-grain pita chips. Or top grilled fish or chicken with it. Have a sweet tooth? Give orange or pineapple salsa a try.
Chilled Soups ~ You can serve these as a light meal – or as an appetizer or dessert. Here are three cool and soothing options:
Vichyssoise. This creamy French classic is made with pureed potatoes and leeks. To keep it on the healthful side, use low-fat, low-sodium chicken broth. For an even creamier soup, stir in a little plain low-fat yogurt or low-fat sour cream.
Frozen Nibbles. Freeze grapes or berries. Grab them for a quick and cold snack.
More hints on hydration ~
Perhaps you’re wondering, How much water do I need? Maybe you’ve heard it should be eight glasses a day. Actually, there’s no set amount that’s right for everyone.* Staying hydrated is important though so don’t wait until you are thirsty. Carry a refillable water bottle with you and sip from it throughout the day. (Be sure to wash your water bottle daily!)
Bored with the same old water supply? Give it a twist with one of these Fruit-Infused Waters you can make at home!
Remember, heat can be a hazard ~
To learn more about safety in hot weather, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website at cdc.gov. You can also check the weather and heat index in your area and see heat advisories at www.weather.gov. In hot weather, do keep an especially close eye on older people, people with health conditions and young children and make sure they stay hydrated. They’re at the highest risk of heat-related illness.

A bad hair day for someone with curly, wavy, or somewhere-in-between hair can be a disaster. You can use sprays, mousse, gels and more to try to tame it, but sometimes you just need to bring out the big guns and show your hair who is boss. Many well-kept individuals swear by the flat iron as a daily weapon in the battle against bad hair days.
The flat iron sadly was not always in our arsenal, but came into focus just before the turn of the century in 1872 by Parisian man named Marcel Grateau. Marcel used heated metal rods to style and straighten hair into the most popular styles which women deemed as the “Marcel Wave”.
It took over 30 years for a major advance to come to the market, but in 1909 Isaac K. Shero invented the first hair straightener to use a flat surface rather than rods. Two flat irons were heated and pressed together to smooth out curls.
Just a few years later, the first hair straightener to resemble what we associate with today hit the stage courtesy of Scottish Heiress, Lady Jennifer Bell Schofield. This double plated heated iron was hinged in the center to clamp and unclamp from the hair.
Even after this invention, many women, in a desperate attempt to kill the curls, would lay their little heads down on their mother’s ironing tables and take a scalding and dangerous clothes iron to their hair. Most were helped in this seemingly insane task by their very own family. Thankfully, that method was swiftly carried away after the 1960’s and we moved forward with the Lady Jennifer’s design.
From there, well, the rest is history. Much like the hairdryer things became safer as the years passed by. Most straighteners on the market today are made with ceramic or steel plates and plastic handles. As you look into your cabinets today, be thankful for the many people who singed their locks so you could look fabulous!
Have a great hair day!

Master Hairdresser, Permanent Wave Specialist, and Colorist
1. Squeeze-dry your hair
GENTLY wring water from your hair post shampooing & conditioning. Less friction results in less frizzing. To speed up drying time and prevent the use of excessive thermal heat, wring hair gently with paper towels to absorb more water before blow-drying.
2. Tend to your scalp not just your hair
Clarifying shampoos do not sufficiently cleanse product buildup on the scalp which can result in clogged hair follicles, weakened hair strands and slow hair growth. Apply an astringent to the scalp once a week with a cotton ball, then shampoo with professionally recommended shampoo and conditioner.
3. Wash your hair before receiving a color service
The colorist needs to see your actual hair color to determine successful desired results. Product buildup can make the hair look darker than what it really is and unwashed hair does not make the color take better – it can actually prevent hair color from processing effectively.
4. Do not over use “Protein” treatments or conditioners
Actual protein treatments or conditioners help to reinforce weak hair but should only be used when professionally recommended.Over use of “protein” on the hair can cause buildup resulting in dry, brittle hair and breakage.
5. Use a Humidifier (moist air)
Dry air from either climate conditions or working in a building that pumps air (hot or cold) in can result in lifeless, flat, dry, and flyaway hair. Use professionally recommended moisturizing hair products and regularly run a humidifier to help put moisture back into the air.

As your body ages, your hair changes…
August – September 2013 – Cleveland Woman’s Journal, East Edition
Hair changes every 5 to 7 years. As our body ages, we see changes in our hair texture. The hair of a newborn is very soft & fine. The diameter of the hair thickens as we enter childhood and early adolescence. As we age and move into adulthood and older, usually beginning in our 40’s and 50’s, the hair begins to change again, becoming “finer” or “thinner” and/or “wiry” or “frizzy”. Add to the causes of your hair texture changing, hormonal imbalances, medications, diet, and genetics. So what can you do? (READ ENTIRE ARTICLE)

Permanent waves have a bit of a bad rap, but they have not gone out of style. Hair has come a long way since the “big” hair fad of the 80’s. The new permanent waves are nothing like the tight curls of the decades past. If your hair is straight, fine, limp and/or flat, a permanent wave can give you…. (READ ENTIRE ARTICLE)

Looking great is a matter of finding your own personal style!
February-March 2008 – Cleveland Woman’s Journal
By Denise Zingale Travis / D’MAZ Lifestyle Salon
Looking wonderful is not about what’s “in” or the “latest.” The word for women who look great all the time isn’t “fashionable”, it’s “chic.” Unlike great beauty or wealth, whis is a sensibility waiting to be tapped. To be chic is to develop a sustainable style, to look uniquely like yourself – the ideal you – whether you are wearing a pair of jeans and a ponytail or a formal with beautifully up-swept hair.

Now you can do something about it ~ By Denise Zingale
Realizing that your hair is beginning to look thinner or noticing that there is more in hair in your brush, on your pillow, on your bathroom floor, or worst yet after washing your hair it looks like a small animal has been left behind in your tub can be devastating. For most women, we try and deny what we are seeing and rationalized that the situation is temporary and will soon stop. For some women it will, for others it becomes a lifestyle change.
