When my hair has the texture of crunch n' munch and is full of static I know winter is here. The colder months bring a new set of challenges for anyone's beauty routine. The drop in temperatures bring dry scalps and too much shampooing can strip away moisture. Fortunately, I spoke with Fabian Lliguin, founder of Rahua and he shared with me some of his top tips for caring for winter hair.

I continue to carry those words with me: "fat", "ugly", "lazy", "worthless". My one positive attribute was my smarts, and I owned being smart.

When you're bargaining in street markets, shaking hands, touching money, and using bathrooms sans soap and water, hand sanitizer is crucial, and you'll be using a lot of it. Unfortunately, this can be very drying on the skin since most are formulated entirely with ethyl alcohol. Nothing puts me off more than a sterile hospital smell and scaly hands. Luckily, there are alternatives.

I don't like pictures of myself, and I did a lot of self-reflection about that during the selfie project. The rules for the Selfie Project were simple: post at least five selfies on Facebook over the course of a week and talk to me about the experience afterwards.
