Oct/Nov 2010 *LHCF BSL in 2011 Challenge*

FOR ANY DAILY UPDATES OR MINOR CHANGES, CHECK OUT MY JOURNAL:

This season (fall/winter) I will be re/introducing a few new things to my regimen, which will be dry DCing(reintroduced) and Henna...I finally purchased a steamer to get the full benefits this time around...

My cold weather regimen has also been rearranged just a bit,and of course I have to find a way to incorporate the henna treatments...I think I will be be alternating between henna, and cassia every two weeks (thats 2x a month)
