Our first BCA beauty pick for your hair!
How did October happen? And the month that brings us Halloween and Daylight Savings is also all about Breast Cancer Awareness (as if you didn’t already know that). In past years I’ve kicked off the month with personal breast-cancer stories from myself and my mother, since she was a survivor and I’m vigilant about early detection because of my increased risk. Although I’m happy to say that my mom had been cancer-free for almost 40 years after a mastectomy in the 70s and a prophylactic mastectomy a little less than 10 years ago, I’m not happy to say that she passed away this past April.
Truth be told, although she was a huge proponent of research, she wasn’t a big fan of all the pink ribbon brouhaha because she really believed that breast cancer awareness should be a year-round affair. I definitely saw her point, but I think it’s a great way to raise much-needed funds—and I’ll be sharing my BCA beauty picks throughout the month.
First up is Joico’s Instant Bombshell Kit because who couldn’t use a little refresh in the hairstyling department? This insanely priced set includes Heat Set Blowout Crème, Hair Shake Finishing Texturizer Spray, a round brush AND a set of hair clips for less than $21. Beyond being a great deal, Joico is donating $15,000 to the City of Hope Foundation, a leading research and treatment center for cancer as well as diabetes and other life-threatening illnesses.
