It takes my breath away thinking about how much money we can spend at beauty salons. I stopped going to get my hair dyed years ago. Now I simply buy my own at my local grocery store. I spend a fraction of the amount I used to.
How to stop my ears from itching? I was diagnosed with an ear infection in both ears last week. I have been taking antibiotics and using ears drops that have been prescribed, however my ears are still itching. What can I do to stop the itching and how soon will the meds kick in?
Right now I have mono and I have a really bad ear infection in my right ear. It hurts so bad, every time I cough, swallow, etc. I get this sharp pain on the inside of my right ear. What can I use to help with the pain?
I had acrylic nails put on and they were pretty grown out. I hit my pinky nail and ripped a small bit of my real nail off. As you can imagine it's very painful. I'm trying to find a way to get my pinky nail off with there being already a ton of pain and swelling in my finger.
I quit buying the nail and foot brush to use in the shower. I started using my old denture brush. I get a new one every few months. It works better in the shower having two sides to scrub nails and feet.
My grandpa has had diabetes since 1976. He got operated on his right foot and his finger was cut off. Years later he suffered from a wound on his right leg. We consulted a doctor, who gave him medicine, but that didn't cure it. Now what do we do?
There's a hard bump on top and below beside my tongue ring. It doesn't hurt. It's the size of a pea. Is that normal?
I naturally have a dirty/light blonde hair color. I dyed it burgundy last summer. And after I dyed it burgundy I dyed it red. I let it fade for about 6 months, and here I am. I wanted to get back to my natural color, but now I'm in a pickle.
if you have ginger hair and you dye it black can you get it back?
I dyed my hair one week ago and it was supposed to be blue/black, but it came out just black. I went and purchased the right blue black color from Sally's. Do you think it would be OK to dye it a week later?
I have a problem. Since I was 19 I have dyed my hair some kind of honey blonde. Now I am in my 50's and some months ago I put in the golden blonde in my hair again, it slims my face, I have a round shaped head. My son said my hair was actually more red and orange than golden blonde.
I am 13 about to be 14. I want to ask my mom to let me shave, but I always back out. I'm a shy girl so I get really nervous. When we go to a party or anything else I always wear jeans. I'm always afraid of wearing shorts in summer, because I'm afraid of people talking about my legs.
I colour my hair at home and it comes out OK. I am colouring to hide grey. I am still on semi permanent. I kept the bottle of mixed product in my cupboard with the intention of doing a little touch up in about 3-4 weeks.
I woke from sleep on Sunday and I felt as if I was having mucus in my throat. My ears were clogged on the third day. My nose is even clogged, but my ears were more clogged. Now it's the 5 day and I can feel that the right side of my throat is painful and that my right ear is even clogged.
When biting down on food from the front of the dentures is it common that the back of the dentures come loose?
I dyed my hair with semi-permanent dye last week and I don't like the color that I got. It's too light. Is it okay for me to dye it black after just a week?
My natural colour is auburn red. I have been getting bleached blonde highlights for years, but really want my natural colour back. Any advice on how to do this?
I have tried everything from lime to baking soda to milk of magnesia. I try to remove all the bacteria as much as possible with methylated spirit. I use a men's deodorant now and nothing seems to be working. I am a teenager.
I have had blonde hair for the last 50 years. I have medium to dark blonde hair and I am just tired of touch ups every 4 or 5 weeks. If I use a semi permanent red before I use a permanent light brown or dark blonde will the color fade or should I use permanent light red first to avoid fading?
I had my remaining upper teeth removed almost 4 weeks ago and received an immediate denture. I did go in for some adjustments twice in the interim and they really helped. Two days ago I had my first soft reline done. The fit is much much better, but the denture is not perfectly straight in my mouth now and looks a little uneven.
I would like to dye my hair, but because I had gotten so many perms in the past, I was forced to cut it from the extensive damage. My hairstylist styled it and cut out most of the damage from the perm.
This is going to seem very petty, but here goes. My roots could really use a touch up, but I have poison ivy going on 2 weeks now. Since it is an immune system response, would it be safe to color my hair or might I enter the ninth circle of hell?
I have also suffered from heel spurs and my solution to the pain and final cure was to wear rocker soled shoes! I found the shoes were such a relief eventually I could wear my regular shoes again!
I have dry flaky winter skin around my eyebrows and the bridge of my nose. Quite by chance I found a remedy that removes the flakes and moisturizes at the same time without leaving my face all shiny.
When I was little it was dark brown almost black and as I am growing up it had changed to more of a dark brown with random sun kissed blonde streaks here and there. I decided a few months ago to dye my hair with the super market stuff, around the same colour just hiding all the blonde streaks.
In February, I went to a hair salon and dip-dyed my hair. However the colour didn't turn out as it was supposed to so I went and bought 2 boxes of L'oreal Preference Ombré kit. However since my hair has already been coloured from chin downward the colour, yet again, turned out completely wrong.
I just recently went from a medium blonde to platinum blonde. I thought I would like it, but it's too bold for me. I would like to have an ombre or balayage done to make it more natural. Is it too early to do that, since I had my hair bleached 4 days ago?
I recently had my teeth removed and temporary dentures put in immediately after. I was not really given info after being sent home only to come in if I have sore spots. And now the dentist is on vacation. I'm curious if I have to take them out at night?
My hair is fine and baby soft. The perm was given under a hair dryer and as a result I have frizz, especially on the top and it is also on the thin side. What can I do to correct this?
I tried dyeing my hair red, like ginger, but it only dyed the roots and the rest is still brown. I went out and bought two more boxes. I need two because my hair is long and thick, and tried it again, but it stayed the exact same. Is it a good idea to go buy blonde dye to get rid of this nasty split colour?
I want to have reverse highlights in a warm brown on my white hair. My hair has recently been permed with a very mild perm that cannot overprocess. Would this be a problem?
I'm 13 and have really hairy legs. I don't know how to ask my dad to shave because I fell like I would feel more comfortable asking my mom, but I only see her once every 3-4 months. What should I do?
I'm wanting to get a light wavy perm because I want a style that is a little easier to manage seeing as I have a very busy lifestyle. So if I go ahead and get the right kind of perm for my hair, on those occasions I decide I want to style and wear my hair straight will that damage my hair too much or ruin the perm?
This is my very first time doing this at home. I normally go to a salon, but just figured I would save some money. My question is, when you do your own nails at home, do you have to use the dehydrating liquid and do you have to use the nail primer? Those are the only two things I didn't buy.
Can I keep hair coloring if I only use part of the bottles that you mix together. I have short hair and don't use all of the product. And I was wondering if I don't mix all the product, can I use it later? And if so how long can I keep it?
I am going to be 15 this May. My legs are so hairy that I feel so embarassed when I wear shorts and all. I really want to shave. But the problem that arises is that my mother doesn't shave. What should I do? I also don't want that my mom should know about it. I am too shy to ask for a razor and all that stuff from a shopkeeper.
I just had my hair permed. I searched for some tips already and it says that I need to use shampoos and conditioners that are suitable for permed hair. I am from the Philippines and some of the products that I've searched are not found here. Is Sunsilk, both shampoo and conditioner a suitable hair care product for permed hair?
I got my hair permed about a year and a half ago or more, it turned out great, and was very healthy. I have never put any chemicals or dyes in it, but over the last few months it gets completely dry, feels crackly, and it frizzes so much that even if I straighten it, it looks as if I have been struck by lightening.
I just had my hair permed a few days ago. I have wavy hair and it keeps on getting fluffy and frizzy so I decided to perm it. After 24 hours, I will be washing it already. I'm just afraid that it might not turn out to be the way I like it.
I recently bleached and dyed my hair to an indigo color, but I was just offered a new job, very surprisingly, that requires me to dye it back to a natural color. My hair is naturally brown.
I have just a few strands of grey hair but it bothers me. Someone mentioned tea. I either make a very strong cup of tea or coffee and comb it in and let it set 30 minutes or so. It helps blend in the bit of grey.
