To get long, thick, super soft hair: massage organic coconut oil in your hair times a week (leave in mins) wash out with shampoo. Do this until hair is growing and healthy (no split-ends) and reduce to times a month. Works amazingly --im about this life
shoes - don't spend money on feather-trimmed sandals. Make your own loose ankle bracelet with craft feathers so they drape over your existing shoes. That way you don't feel bad when you have to throw the dirty/damaged feathers out.
