Friday Faves is a weekly blog feature in which I share two favorite things. One is personal; the other is publishing industry related, but not promotional. Fridays are a no-promo zone on Carabristol.com. You can expect lots of photos, anecdotes & tips. To be notified of Friday Faves and other posts, subscribe to my blog.

This week’s personal fave is: It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-in Product
- Repairs dry, damaged hair
- Adds shine
- Controls frizz
- Seals and protects hair color
- Prevents splits ends
- Stops hair breakage
- Creates silkiness
- Enhances natural body
- Flat iron & thermal protection
Whether it does 1, 5, 6 & 7 remains to be seen. But it definitely detangles, controls frizz, adds shine, and creates silkiness. And I think it adds some body too. The silkiness aspect is the best part. My husband calls it “TV hair.” It makes my hair very smooth looking and silky to the touch.
As the name says, (leave-in product), you spray it on after you’re done washing your hair. I use it in addition to my regular conditioner (the rinse out kind). There are other It’s a 10 products including a shampoo, a conditioner, and a miracle masque, which I haven’t tried. The leave-in product is about $20 for 10 ounces at Walmart. Target I know, also carries it and you can get it on Amazon too.
Anyway, if you want to add silkiness to your hair, I recommend this product.
This week’s publishing fave is...Book Market Maven
Book Market Maven is a fairly new website. So far there’s three parts to it: Market Maven, which focuses on publishing industry news; fiction maven, which offers writing tips; and Editing Maven, offering editing tips. Nonfiction Maven is coming soon. I especially like Market Maven in which Patricia Green offers her take on various publishing issues. Recent topic have include a post on how age and sex affect reading, monetizing your blog, and targeting ads on Facebook. It’s worth reading. I look forward to new posts, and I’ve learned a few things.
