limited version of president trump's travel ban is now in place sparking protests overnight. the white house also announcing that the president will indeed meet with russian president vladimir putin next week at a summit in germany. we begin with the growing outrage over president trump's angry tweets mocking tv host mika brzezinski. condemnation coming from both sides of the aisle. mika has just responded as well. our senior white house correspondent cecilia vega has all the latest from the white house. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: george, good morning to you. this tweet has actually brought unity to this divided town with that universal outrage that you just mentioned. the president lashing out at the physical appearance of a tv host and now this morning she and her co-host are firing back. from the president, no comment about those tweets lashing out at the msnbc host mika brzezinski. the president calling her low i.q. crazy mika and her co-host joe scarborough psycho joe after
7:03 am
brzezinski criticized him and he reacted, saying, they came to mar-a-lago around new year's eve and insisted on joining him. the president said she was bleeding badly from a face-lift. msnbc aired this photo reportedly taken at mar-a-lago around that time and this morning brzezinski and scarbrough responded denying the president's claims and writing, >> yesterday was an example of how deeply personal he is. >> ken: he attacks women. >> reporter: they say they are worried about the president's emotional state. >> he has once again shown the world that he can be played, he can be tweaked, he can be goaded so easily that it's frightening. >> reporter: now as president trump tried to get back to business, those words not sitting well with members of his own party, including senators whose votes he needs to pass the republican health care plan. like susan collins and lisa
7:04 am
murkowski, both seen sitting next to him in the white house earlier this week. murkowski firing off a tweet asking the president do you want to be remembered for your tweets or your accomplishments? >> it clearly was inappropriate and not something that he should have done. it is beneath the dignity of the office. >> reporter: even the speaker of the house did not hold back. >> obviously i don't see that as an appropriate comment. i think, look, what we're trying to do around here is improve the tone and civility of the debate and this obviously doesn't help do that. >> reporter: white house aides jumping to the president's defense. >> i don't think that it's a surprise to anybody that he fights fire with fire. >> reporter: spokeswoman sarah huckabee sanders says it is the president who has been mercilessly attacked. >> the american people elected a fighter, not somebody to sit back and do nothing. that's -- they knew what they were getting when they voted for donald trump and he won overwhelmingly. >> reporter: this morning the president is now back to watching the very show he's been
7:05 am
bashing. he tweeted, watched low rated "morning joe" for the first time in a long time. fake news. he called me to stop a "national enquirer" article. i said no, bad show. the call from republicans and democrats this morning, this is below the dignity of this office, george? >> okay, cecilia, let's talk to the president's counselor kellyanne conway. kellyanne, thank you for joining us this morning. do you endorse the president's tweets? >> i like the fact that the president uses social media platform to connect directly with americans and in this case, what sarah sanders said yesterday is true, that the president normally does not draw first blood. he is a counterpuncher as he said on the campaign trail and if you go back and you look at what is said about this president, a lack of policy coverage, there are personal attacks about his physicalities, about his fitness for office. he's called a goon, a thug, mentally ill talking about dementia, armchair psychologists all over television every day. it doesn't help the american people to have a president covered in this light. i'm sorry.
7:06 am
it's neither productive or patriotic. >> kellyanne, as you know -- >> the toxicity is over the top. >> kellyanne, as you know all presidents are attacked. i worked for a president that was attacked -- >> not this way. >> that is very true. what you're saying is not true. >> not this way. >> let me ask you, because you didn't quite answer the question. do you endorse what the president sent out in those tweets? >> i endorse the president's right to fight back when he is being mercilessly attacked and when the air waves are filled with raw sewage about him and his fitness for office. why? when you look at the network coverage in a five-week period between may and june, 353 minutes spent on covering russia, fbi, comey, totally fantastical, hypothetical charade, less than a minute spent on tax reform. >> kellyanne, hold on a second. that was when the president had fired james comey when a special counsel was appointed when the intelligence committees were looking at that. let me go back to something you said back in august because during the primaries you actually opposed president trump because he had a pattern of personal insults and i asked you
7:07 am
about that back in august. look. >> so what changed for you and do you stand by those comments? >> i do. and the reason is i don't like when people hurl personal insults. that will never change. i'm a mother of four small children and would be a terrible example to feel otherwise. >> that's right. that's exactly what i'm saying. look, that's exactly what i'm saying to you, george, that the toxicity both ways -- coming to the president is terrible. and, you know, this is what's going on. the idea that the media are covering -- large parts of the media anyway are covering personal insults about the president, this invective and really denying america's women their rightful knowledge on what he's doing on taxes, on health care -- >> kellyanne, as you know, we wouldn't be talking about in this morning if the president hadn't sent out those tweets yesterday. there is no way we would be talking about this. >> respectfully you would not be talking about tax reform because it was talked about for less than a minute on all the networks for a five-week period.
7:08 am
>> the president hasn't come out with a tax reform plan but that is besides the point. >> you would not be talking about jobs. you keep interrupting me, george. fairly to the american people, particularly women who tune in to these shows to get information about what's going on for them. this is somebody who is trying to get those millions of women who lack health care coverage, this is a man who is trying to get tax relief and entrepreneurship freed up in this country for those american women who want that. it doesn't get covered. it's just not covered. there is toxicity about this president? actually we do cover it and cover it quite a bit and led with health care every day this week up until this morning. how do you respond to nicolle wallace, fellow republican, she served in george w. bush's white house and she said as someone who once proudly called myself a republican this party will permanently be associated with misogyny if leaders don't step up and demand a retraction. >> it's not fair. i work in that white house every single day and see a man who invites in obamacare victims, mothers who lost their children to illegal immigrants who had
7:09 am
multiple deportations and felony convictions but murdered their children anyway. he brings in people who are working on energy across the country. he brings in america's men and women to help them and but for me saying it right now we wouldn't hear about it. so nobody focuses on all the good he does. you know, the president sent out about roughly 160 tweets in the month of june. 120 or so of them were about policy, were about bilateral meetings with heads of state and all the things he's doing to help the american people. it gets very little coverage. >> the problem you have this is republicans who are coming out with this -- with this criticism. it's susan collins, it's lisa murkowski. those are the senators sitting next to him when he was trying to talk about health care the other day. here's pat toomey trying to work very hard on health care. he is saying what the president is doing starts to undermine the president's ability to get his agenda done. he's getting in the way of his own agenda. >> george, all those senators ran on repealing and replacing obamacare and many of them voted to do it when we had a democratic president. all that's changed in the last couple of years since those
7:10 am
senators voted to do away with obamacare taxes and penalties is we have a republican president that can actually sign reform into law and need to do what they feel is best. we're confident that health care will get passed this summer and then followed by tax reform and let me just say something else, as you showed a clip of me talking as a mother of four. i've been attacked. if you say you want your children treated the way kellyanne conway was treated based on her gender and based on where she works and for whom, then i'll listen to you. but beyond respond in kind because i'm here as a public servant trying to help people and i swallowed a lot of bile over the time because i don't want it to be about me. since you showed a clip about me and since i have to look four children in the eye every day, i want them to see a president who's fighting for them. i didn't want them to have somebody would is 62% of the country said was not honest or trustworthy to be their president.
7:11 am
>> well, kellyanne, that comes with the territory, as you know. i served in the white house as well and attacked as well. that just comes with the territory. that is not about gender. what i was asking you about is whether you endorse the president's comments, the president's attacks, and apparently you do. >> the attacks -- no, i didn't say i endorse his attacks. i never said that. i said i endorsed his ability to fight back when he is attacked. there is no good that comes out of people attacking the president's physical and mental states on national television every day to the exclusion of connecting americans with information they need and respectfully i'm going to have to disagree that i have not been attacked because of my gender including by people in the payroll of your network but that's okay. because i'm here for bigger things. this is not about any one individual. >> so bottom line you do not endorse what the president said? bottom line do you not endorse the president's tweets? >> i'm sorry, george? >> bottom line you do not endorse the president's tweets? >> bottom line i endorse his
7:12 am
ability to connect on social media with americans and i endorse as the first lady as said him firing back when he's being mercilessly attacked. the good that comes out of this i hope is we change the conversation, that respect for the office of the president and its current occupant are intact and we have a full conversation about policy. let people disagree on policy and stop the personal invective. it's completely toxic and it's completely counterproductive to connecting america with policy prescription that they need. >> kellyanne, thank you. i would say one more time we would be leading with health care if the president hadn't sent out those tweets. thanks very much. >> health care will get done. another republican senator, ben sasse said it best. please just stop. this isn't normal. just stop. those comments from the president on twitter overshadowing that health care showdown. the senate running out of time to draft a new version of the bill before taking off for the fourth of july recess. our congressional correspondent mary bruce is tracking it all on capitol hill for us. good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning, robin. well, senate republicans were hoping to have a revised health care bill by now but instead
7:13 am
they're heading home empty-handed. the negotiations continued up here yesterday behind closed doors and they are zeroing in on some new proposals. here's what's now on the table. to please moderate hold-outs they're considering adding up to $45 billion to fight the opioid epidemic and keeping an obamacare tax on wealthy investors, while some conservatives are pushing a proposal that would allow insurance companies to offer cheaper plans that do not cover essential health benefits but none of these options this morning appear to be enough to turn any of the nos into yeses. >> so, again, we asked this over and over again, where do they go from here, mary? >> reporter: well, first senators are going home, robin. this debate is likely to follow them there. they are bracing for pushback and an earful from some of their constituents and these health care talks are likely to continue during the break and republican leaders are hopeful still that they can have a vote finally next month but if they aren't able to get this done, the president just now tweeted that they should immediately
7:14 am
repeal and then replace at a later date. robin. >> all right, mary. >> which is a very, very different plan. that's brand new this morning. we turn to the fourth of july travel. record numbers expected to hit our nation's holida highways th holiday weekend. aaa predicting more than 37 million people will be on the roads. abc's linzie janis on the new jersey turnpike. what are you seeing so far, linzie? >> reporter: good morning, george. we're on the turnpike headed toward the jersey shore, a popular destination this weekend. as you can see traffic moving pretty smoothly so if your strategy was to get out early ahead of everybody else, well, it appears to be working. if you have to work today and can't get out until later brace yourself for some serious millions of americans are hitting the highways for the holiday weekend. but before you can reach the beach, you have to face a whole lot of traffic. >> it is kind of a nightmare to try to get out of the city. >> it's not really a strategy. just prepare yourself. >> reporter: what can you do to avoid the jams and stay safe on the road? >> why leave saturday morning?
7:15 am
>> avoid the traffic. >> reporter: experts at waze, a navigation app giving predicts for the holiday weekend. according to their analysis of last year's data between 3:00 and 6:00 p.m. on friday is the worst window of time to leave for your weekend getaway. the best day, monday. >> we see that traffic decreases by over 90% so if you get on the road that day it will be a lot easier. >> reporter: waze telling us the cities with the highest expected traffic surges include saginaw, michigan, salisbury, maryland and gulfport, mississippi, among others. >> we're seeing really bad traffic predictions for all over the country and many key metros like boston, chicago and l.a. >> reporter: and what about those fireworks? they may lead to even more road congestion. last year there was three times the traffic following fourth of july fireworks. but you don't just need to worry about traffic.
7:16 am
this may also be one of the most dangerous weekends to be on the road. according to the national safety council, nearly 67,000 people could be seriously injured in car crashes this weekend. the most dangerous time to be on the road after 8:00 p.m. on friday and saturday. robin, i spoke with the police chief here in new jersey. he says if you're going to be out and going to be drinking don't forget those ride sharing apps. >> good advice there. everybody please stay safe. thank you, linzie. millions also expected to take to the sky over the holiday. abc's david kerley is at reagan national airport with a look at the conditions right now. how is it going, david? >> reporter: actually it's going pretty well. you take a look at the line and see folks going through security here and the morning rush is just about over. and the tracking services show no real big trouble spots so far in the air travel system. about 1 in 12 americans who travel this weekend will be flying. in fact, overall, air traffic is up about 4%. they expect that over this weekend, as well and if you're ready for this, expect the busiest day if last year any judge could be next friday, a
7:17 am
week from today because last year the friday after the fourth of july was the busiest air travel of the year, not thanksgiving, not christmas, the friday after the fourth of july. atlanta and jfk expected to get hit the hardest this weekend and overall, robin, about 2.5 million people will be getting in lines like this to get on their jets and celebrate the holiday. >> as we always say pack a lot of patience when you head to the airport. thank you so much. rob is here with the forecast especially the severe weather moving east, rob? >> we have pockets of that and there will be heavy downpours, traveling and driving get in one of those, pull over and -- to a safe spot until those showers pass. atlanta getting rain, had heavy rain last night so the airport might see delays there. but the main interstates i-40 to i-90, pockets of rain there. it's not going to rain this entire area all day long but where you see those storms pop up, they could be on the intense side, no doubt about that. as far as severe weather is concerned from oklahoma city today through paducah pretty good stretch through

indianapolis, detroit, upstate new york. we had a few tornadoes yesterday. a huge hail nearly softball size yesterday and damaging winds in nebraska so these storms do have some potential for doing damage. tomorrow, pittsburgh, upstate new york, the cat skills, the alleghenys, poconos and adirondacks could see severe weather there so watching that carefully. i'm abc7 news meteorologist drew tuma. your accuweather forecast will see any fog pull back to the

time to be out there on the roads. >> moving pretty well so far. >> yeah. we start out with the latest on venus williams. she is now being blamed for a car crash that led to the death of a 78-year-old man and an investigation is under way and that man's family announced they are suing. abc's steve osunsami is on the scene. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning to you, george. police here don't believe that williams acted recklessly or did anything terribly wrong, but someone here died. florida police this morning underline that it was an accident but say they believe that tennis superstar venus williams is at fault for the june 9th crash that caused the death of 78-year-old jerome barson and seriously injured his wife linda. the accident happened just days after the seven-time grand slam champion was eliminated from the french open driving to her palm beach gardens home. jerome barson died from his
7:32 am
injuries two weeks after the crash. according to the police report, williams was driving a toyota sequoia and had a green light when traffic forced her to stop in the middle of an intersection. another driver who witnessed the accident says that williams' light turned red with her suv still in the middle of that intersection and when she was able to drive forward she stepped right in the way of an oncoming hyundai accent. linda barson, the driver of that vehicle, told police that her light was green when she crashed into the sequoia. williams told police she never saw the other car coming. the investigation is still ongoing but the police report says that it was williams who was at fault for violating the right of way of the other driver even though this morning williams has not been ticketed or charged. >> to be charged criminally in an automobile accident there has to be a finding of reckless or wanton conduct. none of that appears to be the case so unlikely that she would be determined criminally responsible for the death of the man. >> reporter: williams' attorney is telling abc news she entered the intersection on a green light. this is an unfortunate accident
7:33 am
and venus expresses her deepest condolences to the family who lost a loved one. the police report says she was only moving about five miles an hour. williams is due to start wimbledon on monday. police here do not believe that alcohol, drugs or even texting played any part in this accident. george. >> okay, steve, thank you very much. let's talk now to the attorney for the barson family, michael steinger. thank you for joining us this morning. >> absolutely. >> first of all, how is linda barson doing? >> she is devastated. this is the man she loved. she's been married for 35 years. and she is absolutely devastated. she sustained her own injuries as well and is trying to cope with his death. >> and you heard what the police have said. they said venus williams was not acting recklessly, going about five miles an hour, had the green light, even though she is to blame for the crash. what are the memories of mrs. barson about what happened?
7:34 am
>> she remembers traveling in the vehicle. she remembers her light was green and entering the intersection. after that, the collision took place. and it was concern for her husband and her own injuries at that point. and they were transported to the hospital. her husband had life-threatening injuries and she was hoping and praying for his ability to live which he did for almost two weeks before he succumbed to those injuries. >> that is so sad and our condolences as well to t entire family. this morning you have decided to file a lawsuit. why? >> at this point we are attempting to both preserve the evidence and gain access to the evidence. there are video cameras that were placed at guardhouses where ms. williams lives and the police have refused after multiple requests to turn those over to us and we would like to see visual portrayal of the accident on those videos. they have impounded all the vehicles and have impeded our ability to conduct our investigation and to be able to move forward. >> do you know why? >> i don't.
7:35 am
i'm not sure what their reasoning is. we've been requesting it and have known about this for now three weeks. >> and you haven't seen anything? >> we have not. they have refused to turn them over to us at this point. >> and so the lawsuit is seeking to get that and after that what would be next for the family? >> at this point all the family is trying to do is to deal with their grief. they were scheduled for a trip the following week. mr. barson, ms. barson, their children, grandchildren on a disney cruise that they looked forward to and have done on many occasions. the family didn't get to go. the grandchildren were extremely upset. didn't understand. this was supposed to be a wonderful family vacation and summer for them and it's an amazing loss. >> are you hearing anything from witnesses about it? even though you haven't seen the tape. >> yes, there were witnesses to this accident. there were vehicles directly next to my client's vehicle. those witnesses have been clear
7:36 am
that my client had a green light and that ms. williams pulled out in front and these are independent witnesses that have nothing to do with this case but stopped at the scene and gave their explanations to the police officer. >> okay. michael steinger, thanks for your time this morning. >> thank you. >> robin. coming up new concerns about the poplar fidget spinners catching fire. the investigation this morning. as moms, we send our kids out into the world, full of hope. and we don't want something like meningitis b getting in their way. meningococcal group b disease, or meningitis b, is real. bexsero is a vaccine to help prevent meningitis b in 10 to 25 year olds. even if meningitis b is uncommon, that's not a chance we're willing to take. meningitis b is different from the meningitis most teens were probably vaccinated against when younger. we're getting the word out against meningitis b. our teens are getting bexsero. bexsero should not be given if you had a severe allergic reaction

8:15 am
it on their skin at all and many get no sign of it in several blood tests. it's a big problem because a key to efficient treatment is early detection. they're small and they're dangerous but while ticks can be hard to spot so can the lyme disease they often carry. jill knows this firsthand. >> i happen to catch a glimpse in an angled mirror of a bull's-eye rash on the back of my right arm. i didn't know what it was at the time but took a picture of it and soon after we got home i contacted the doctor. >> reporter: roughly 300,000 people are diagnosed with this disease every year and that number is on the rise. >> i was so weak i couldn't walk. i couldn't chew my food. i couldn't dress myself some of the time. i couldn't get off the couch and walk from one room to the other. i had problems just finding words. i had cognitive issues, finally after about seven or eight tests, the lyme test came back positive. >> reporter: right now tests for lyme disease don't always detect the disease in the early stage. in the first three weeks of
8:16 am
infection, the test only detects lyme 29% to 40% of the time. now the cdc tells abc news researchers are trying to develop a new test to better diagnose the infection early on. >> lyme disease testing can be negative in the first month following infection and this is because we're really waiting for the human immune response to mount in response to the infection. >> reporter: when diagnosed and treated quickly the infection is easy to get rid of but if it's left untreated it can cause debill stating effects from severe arthritis to short-term memory loss. >> if a patient is still having symptoms and their test comes back negative it's very, very important that they communicate with their health care provider. >> and the cdc warns that because it usually takes weeks for lyme to test positive doctors who suspect lyme should prescribe antibiotics even if the test is negative and, robin, that's not something we hear often, take antibiotics you might not need so that just shows how serious this is. >> it does, diane. thank you so much. now to that headline about the

power of failure. this has been one of the top stories all week in "the new york times." so many people are sharing it and it really is resonating so we brought in one of the chief advocates this morning, rachel simmons back with us and teaches a class at smith college called failing well and she's the author of the up coming book "enough as she is." please welcome rachel back to the program. [ applause ] so many people sent me this article and it goes beyond being on the college campus. i know there's a lot of stress there. what is it about failure? >> well, i think part of it is that the college thing is an issue. kids are really worried about getting in and feels to them if i don't do everything perfectly it's all or nothing i won't have a good life. there is a lot of fear with kids but i also think anybody on social media these days and we know kids younger and younger are on it, they're seeing this unlimited stream of perfect images of their friends' lives so they think i can't be anything but perfect and
8:18 am
flawless. on top of that you have parents like me who are under pressure to think that our kids have to be spared of failure if we're going to be good parents so all of those things are works together to keep kids out of practice when it comes to failure. >> i love it that your little one is running around. >> my 5-year-old is indeed running around. >> why do you think it's crucial for parents to talk to their children about failure. >> because here's the thing, nobody can succeed if they're afraid of failure. you have to have that muscle. if you don't know how to learn with an unpredictable -- how to learn with an unpredictable situation you won't have that muscle to cope with setbacks. life is full of challenges and the people who succeed can respond and can be resourceful and are not blown away by every time something doesn't go their way. >> what do you teach in class, just failing well? >> what i try to teach them first of all everybody screws up so i tell them about phi failures, there have been many and it's really important for kids to know that adults screw up too because if we don't tell them that they won't come to us when they have a problem and
8:19 am
they also won't know how to do it and tell them failing is something you have to practice. you won't wake up and know how to do it. >> we have a mutual friend julie foudy and she has been a part of leadership and has a great book out as well and talks about how we all have butterflies but get them to fly in formation. you're not alone in having this fear. >> being nervous means that you care. that means you care and also i say to them and every parent should ask this question, what is the worst that can happen? kids marry are good at o phizing. most can. >> first of all failure is a skill. skills are like muscles, you got to flex often. don't go to the gym and lift 50 pounds the first time or throw your kid into the deep end and have them experience an epic fail. they have to go bit by bit so let them fail often in ways that are manageable. secondly, monitor yourself in
8:20 am
terms as a parent. how do you respond to your kid's failure. when our kids are lerring to walk, when your kid is learning to walk and fall on their face, the first thing they do is look at you. every parent is nodding because they want to know is it okay? and if you go oh, they freak out. but if you say, it's cool, you're good. they keep on going. that doesn't stop. that continues thought their lives. they'll always look at you. on tore yourselfment finally another parent for you, parent tip, handle the way you deal with failure well so if you lose your keys and walk around saying i'm an idiot that's going to teach your kid to do the same. be kind to yourself when you make a mistake. >> they're always watching. this is a lesson to learn early because it really does carry on. >> 100%. 100%. >> i really appreciate that my parents say they didn't want to catch me when i fell. they wanted to be there to pick me up when i did. it's about taking risks. >> that's right and doing it together and not doing it for you child but with your child. >> where is your little one? where is she? >> right over there. >> can we get a -- see there.
8:21 am
[ applause ] >> i know. >> well, thank you. because, you know, rachel, we often talk about success and this is part of it. you want your little girl to be successful and you have to learn about failure to be. >> you know what i said if i screw up i'm going to be okay. we're going to deal wit. if i fail on "good morning america" we'll all move on. >> you're right about. rachel, thanks so much. [ applause ] >> you got to get her book and the article trending all week. now outside to rob. thanks, rachel. >> welcome to the jungle, wisconsin, california, and somebody celebrating her 50th birthday. your name. >> cheryl. >> where are you from? >> wisconsin. >> another one from wisconsin. birthdays all around wisconsin. happy 50th birthday. you look terrific. >> thank you. >> you know what, happy birthday, america. let's celebrate the fourth of july. here's the forecast for tuesday, a broad brush but thunderstorms potentially for wisconsin. 84 in chicago. dry across the west and beach

>> so the first one is about getting sand and water in your car after a wonderful day at the beach. >> it's so annoying. so we'll talk about getting sand off your person. we have our very lovely model here. what you want to do is take some baby powder and if you'll demo this us. you have the sand on legs. when you use the baby powder it absorbs the moisture from the wet sand and makes it easy to brush it off. easy, quick, inexpensive way to get it off your person. >> i never knew that. >> yes. >> so this is the water now. so you got to swim. you got to run. you go to your car. >> exactly. and these also i want to mention are sandproof. they have a nylon backing so now -- sand off your purse and towel. water. when you get out of the pool and wrap yourself you get that mill dewy unpleasant -- if you'll take that bottle of water right there and pour it on your regular towel. i am going to pour it on this
8:24 am
sanddusa toole towel. yours is seeping through. mine is not. it has waterproof inner layers and wrap yourself here and then sit in the car and it's completely dry or if you don't want to do that, wrap your wet bathing suit and all your gear in that. >> because of the nylon backing. >> this is sandusa towel. >> thank you, lori. i have to get talcum powder. linen popular in the summer but the wrinkles not so pretty. >> we all loflinen. it screams summer. doesn't it? but those charming little creases can turn like dishevelled and sloppy. what do you do? chico's make a no iron wrinkle shirt so this we just pulled out like this and you can see it doesn't have any wrinkles. >> looks fantastic. if you have linen that you already own and want to get the wrinkles out a few hacks. this is what most of us look like in linen, right. so, lara, you can take some ice cube, throw them in the dryer
8:25 am
for ten minutes and it works much like -- >> doesn't it just turn to water. >> works like an iron does to release those deep creases and so ten minutes and you're done. if you don't have access to a dryer, emma, if you will model it for us. if you take a little water and just smooth it out. if you're in a real pinch. this is a last resort. >> use your hands. >> darker linen conceals wrinkles. at least choose darker colors. >> thank you. then finally this is a problem that i experienced and now my daughter does. love swimming, love being in that pool but your hair turns green if burden of being a natural blond, right. so there are chemicals in the water that can turn your hair like that so you have two best defenses, the first one is we'll take some conditioner and you'll put it on your hair before you go in the water. >> so it's conditioner and then bathing cap. >> acts like a protect tant? if you don't want to swim in a
8:26 am
bathing cap which is not easy to get a child to do and their hair turns green there is a solution. it's not pretty but effective. >> cue the horns. ketchup. co-ketchup has tomato paste and vinegar low ph and works to neutralize those copper chemicals so it's a little gross, you'll put ketchup all over your hair, put knit a shower cap for 10 to 30 minutes but really does work. >> and wash thoroughly. >> the shower will be interesting but it really does work and get back to that beauty of a blond. >> thank you very much. great summer hack, summer tips. we'll need them this weekend. and coming up next bebe rexha performing live so don't go anywhere.
