Q&A: Thanksgiving 911

Every Thanksgiving hostess has his or her moments of anxiety. Hell, I've been making holiday dinners and hosting dinner parties for a decade, and I still get a little nervous when it come to roasting the perfect turkey. That combined with kids, houseguests, and having to make an endless supply of side dishes all timed in perfect harmony...it's a lot for one person. Hopefully by the time you've read this post, I will have answered any of your looming questions, but if there is still anything you are concerned about, please leave a comment at the end of the post, and I'll be sure to answer.

1. What if I overcook the turkey, and the breast meat is dry? Slice it thin and soak it in warm chicken or turkey stock.
2. How do I get the skin beautiful golden brown? Lots of butter! Separate the skin and push butter directly over the meat then spread more butter over the outside of the skin. Also cover just the breast of th…

The Find: L'Oreal Total Repair 5 Damage Erasing Balm

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AQ8NIC8?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creativeASIN=B00AQ8NIC8&linkCode=xm2&tag=las00-20The new L'Oreal Total Repair 5 Damage Erasing Balm is my favorite new deep-conditioning hair treatment, and it's under $10! I can't tell you how many deep conditioners I've tried over the years. While I tend to use olive oil or coconut oil as a deep conditioning treatment before I hop in the shower and a tiny bit more as a leave-in conditioner afterwards, I occasionally fall for a new product while I'm at the store. The L'Oreal Total Repair 5 Damage Erasing Balm promises to" repair up to one year of damage in one use." As it's under $10 for an 8.5oz jar, I figured it was worth a shot. I'm so glad I tried it! Do keep in mind that despite marketing claims, the only 100% guaranteed way to get rid of split ends is to snip them off, though this deep conditioner beautifully smooths them down if you can't make it to get a trim just yet. This leaves my crazy wavy hair so much more sleek and soft without weighing it down or stripping the curls. I've tossed out my daily conditioner to use this a few times a week in addition to my leave-in oils. For my long, thick hair one jar lasts me about 4 washes. If you don't want to use it that often, you should at least give it a try if you have an important event or date night. Buy it here >
