I have now been living in London for 8 months!! I do wash and set my own shaitels and it has been bothering me that my wigs feel very straw-ey after they have been washed and then saturating them in conditioner, actually the same goes for my hair! I have been trying to figure out a way of making the water soft – yes, I know all about water softeners and they don’t really work well at least the one here doesnt work well. So after much trial and error I have figured it out!! My mother has a condenser (clothes) dryer which means it takes all the water from your clothes and puts it into a container which is removable! so i took that water while it was still warm from the dryer – and started washing my shaitel with it!! The hair still feels as soft and smooth as it did before! yay so there you have it! If you live in london and have a condenser dryer please let me know so i can come and get your water! Not only is this a great way to wash your shaitel – keeping it soft but you are also recycling the water!! So let all go green and wash our shaitels like this!!

Happy washing xGx

Dear Golda,

I really want to look good for my husband but i have 6 kids ranging from 8 to 0 and I want to wear makeup that will look pretty and subtle,that doesn’t take too much time to put on in the morning and that doesnt cost too much!

Dear Overworked and Underpaid,

What i would recommend for you is to go the easy way. Go to your local pharmacy i.e. Boots or CVS and look at the makeup there. Sometimes their makeup is as good as the really expensive brands. I would go for a tinted moisturizer because you get some coverage, not heavy but it does the job, and you get moisturiser so it eliminates the need for moisturiser and they usually have an SPF in it. Then i would get one eyeshadow that compliments the color of your eyes e.g. purple for green eyes. and just do a wash, one solid color all over your eyelid up to your brow bone. Definitely eyeliner and mascara. However if you have small eyes I would just line the top lid and leave the bottom line out. Instead of blush in the summer try a light bronzer to your cheekbones which will highlight them and give you some color. then get a long stay lipstick like Lipfinity from MaxFactor or just a gloss that you can keep with you and reapply.

Voila an easy makeup look that everyone can do!

Hope this helps!!
