What to do When You Break a Pyrex Dish?

It was hot, and it touched the cold water!

This happened to me meanwhile I was cooking Thanksgiving dinner.

I was so busy that I did not realize I had the electric stove on and the pyrex was on top of the hot surface.

As soon as cold water touched it shattered in pieces.

But what to do next when this happens?

I usually grab the largest shards with gloved hands. I have to say that this pair of gloves have been my company when I am in the kitchen.

I use them for cleaning around the house, for washing dishes, and for scrubbing pans. They are made of waterproof-durable vinyl with a soft cotton lining inside. The ones I used I bought them at William Sonoma about two years ago and they are still like new. At first, they may feel a little uncomfortable but as you wear them more often you will get used to them.

Going back to the shattered glass and how to clean:

I always clean the large pieces first.

Then, I used a paper towel to clean the rest STILL with my gloves on.

I set a paper bag on the side where i dispose all shattered pieces in it.

When finished, I place everything inside a sealed plastic bag before disposing of it in the garbage.

Any small remaining pieces, should be gathered with a duct tape according to Melissa Maker author of Clean My Space.

How to Use Dry Shampoo!

The Best Way to Use Fresh Dust Dry Shampoo!

If you do it right, this product will keep your hair looking amazing for long days without the need to use wet shampoo.

The Morning After Dust by L’Oreal Professionnel is one of my favorite product and it is one we should all have in our beauty counter at home.

When I have my hair consultation with my new clients at Westport Hair & Co, CT some of the key questions to ask are:

How many times a week do you wash your hair?

How oily or dry is your hair between washes?

Many of them respond they wash their hair 2-3 times a week while others say they wash their hair only one time a week. The latter is because they say it takes them too long for their hair to dry, especially in the winter season, or they don’t have that extra morning time when they are in the shower.

Don’t you feel the same way?

Yes, I totally get it. We don’t have that extra time and that is why many times we don’t bother washing our hair during the week and we have to walk with oily/ greasy hair, which makes us feel awkward!

My solution for you and my lovely clientele is to send them home with the amazing Morning After Dust Dry Shampoo from L’Oreal Professionnel.

But your question may now be how do I use this dry shampoo?

Well, it is very easy if you follow my steps and you will be glad about the results it gives to your hair.

It is important to section hair at least 4 inches wide.

Hold Fresh Dust Dry Shampoo can 8 inches away from scalp and spray 1 inch from the scalp. This step prevents the dry shampoo from accumulating too much on top of your crown.

Now massage the dry shampoo throughout and by doing this you will remove any oil or dirt build up you may have in your roots and hair. This will spread the shampoo even more and it will add some volume to your hair.

Brush hair with the Wet Brush, one of my other favorite hair brushes to use in my salon company, throughout from roots to ends. Brushing your hair with the Wet Brush will help eliminating any residue left in the hair.  This will leave hair cleaner and more bouncy. 

This technique will be very helpful when a regular shampoo is not present but we always recommend shampooing your hair to preserve healthy hair strands.

Stop Picking at Split Ends!

Who hasn’t experienced split ends before? Don’t they make you crazy? Don’t you want to take small scissors and start cutting them off one by one? But I have a better solution for you if you are willing to take 3 minutes of your daily time to treat your hair the way it deserves.

You know that when you start picking your hair ends you are causing the hair to become more fragile and thinner than what it was. Later on when hair is exposed to harsh chemicals it can break or burn it direct heat is applied to it. when blow drying.

Therefore, I will be giving you mini-steps to follow in order to diminish and control split ends on your hair. These are easy and safe solutions you can get done quickly in the comfort of your home.

When the outer layer gets damage it will be exposing the inner layer of your hair and when this happens is because hair is lacking its keratin which is the main component hair is made of.

Drench your hair with enough nutrients so it can start repairing itself. A powerful keratin based hair mask will definitely help to infuse protein and oils back to the hair.

Always use a heat protectant spray or any moisturizing solution before blow drying hair. Biolage Blue Agave is a great adds shine and moisturizes hair giving it a healthier look.

When is time, don’t be afraid to have a little hair trim. The hair will feel brighter and softer and even more thick than ever before.

Change hair color if it is too light or to brassy. Go with softer tones such as using a demi-permanent colors instead of permanent colors. The former will allow make it look more shiny and nourished than regular color.
