I hope the term “dry scalp” didn’t make you cringe. I’ve suffered from it for years. I think part of it is my fault. I finally wised up and am not having problems with it anymore.
I was one of those people that would wash my hair EVERY SINGLE DAY. Yep, winter, spring, summer, and fall. I know, definitely not good. I used various shampoos to help relieve the itchiness and dryness but nothing helped. Someone suggested Yes to Naturals Tea Tree & Sage Oil Scalp Relief Shampoo and Conditioner and to stop washing it everyday. What? But I sweat a lot and run a lot. How can I not wash my hair? That is just GROSS!! I decided to wash my hair every other day and to just rinse my hair on the days that I don’t wash it. It’s been about 3 weeks and my scalp feels so much better.

There are also quite a few of them in various cities. When you sign up you can get a BONUS Hot Chocolate branded cap. But each city has a different code so make sure to check out my discounts page.
My room is almost done. I went back to set it up Monday-Wednesday. I had a meeting on Tuesday so could only set up for a few hours. I decided that I would finish as much as I could by Wednesday because I didn’t want to go again till Monday. I still have a few more things to do but will get it done when I go back.
Can you tell that I like pens and Ticonderoga pencils. If you have kids in school, buy those pencils for them.
I also managed to run a couple of days. Monday afternoon I came home tired and took a nap. Then I debated on whether to run or not. Glad I did! I wore my new Oiselle reflective top. For sure drivers saw me on the street!
I ran Thursday, Saturday and Sunday again on the lakefront. Total mileage for this week is 18.06.
It feels good not to have a specific running plan to follow. I have two races in September that I am excited about: Run Mag Mile on September 9 and Chicago Half Marathon/5K on September 24. Check out the sweet swag for these races!
Tomorrow is back to work. Summer break is definitely over. 🙂
I’m linking up with Holly and Tricia for their Weekly Wrap. This week’s host is Madhuri @ Ponder ‘N’ Wonder. Please stop by her blog and show her some love!
Hoping everyone had a good week!
