I have been keeping a bowl and mixing hydrogen peroxide and baking soda and using it as deodorant. I have never been fresher. Mix a small amount into a paste. I buy the value size on both at Sam's Club. I am at seven months and might get a year out if it. I used to use a deodorant costing 5.99 every two weeks.
I've had this corn between my pinkie toe and the one next to it for a very long time. Every shoe I wear hurts that toe next to the pinkie. It hurts even walking around bare foot around the house. I believe it may be a bone spur. My question is, have you had a bone spur removed from a toe?
I didn't have a handkerchief or tissue handy when I needed them the other day, so I used an offcut of flannelette from sewing. It was really soft and easy on my nose, which was sore and chapped from much blowing.

I got my hair colored 5 days ago and I totally hate it. I asked for some caramel streaks, but she gave me some shitty brown streaks. They are not even streaks, she just colored my entire bottom part of the hair. I was wondering, can I color my hair black to get my natural looking hair back?
I went to the salon yesterday to get my hair colored. I chose a very dark color because I thought it would look good. It turned out to be almost jet black. How long do I wait to get it dyed again?

May I dye my hair and then my ends in two different colours? I wanna dye my full hair blond and then my ends pastel pink. Is it still possible to do that on one day or is it too dangerous for my hair?

I'm in my mid 30s and had a full extraction done 11 months ago. I just got my permanent dentures. The tops are awesome.

I tried to go from a dark brunette to blonde using Clairol "born blonde" and the result was blond roots and the remainder is fairly dark orang(ish). I need to fix this asap! Do I need to go to a professional or just reapply the stuff? If I just reapply how long do I wait?
A month ago I dyed my hair blue/black, but you cannot see any blue. I just purchased Intense Burgundy for dark hair. On the box it states it's not recommended for hair that has been colored black or dark brown. Black/dark brown is my normal hair color. Do you think I'll be okay to use this dye?

I dyed my hair a week ago using Nice and Easy natural medium blonde. It turned out fine, there are some shades of orange that are not bright but enough to make me want to do it again. I went and got a shade lighter, Natural Baby Blonde, would it be okay to redo it?

I'm 13 and my legs and armpits are getting really hairy. The hair is dark, so it's really noticeable. I'm not at all scared to shave, but I'm worried about asking my mom about it. Does she expect me to ask her, or is she waiting to talk to me about it?
I have used this tip several times over the years and it really does work to help curb the odor - when in a pinch!
I dyed my hair 2 1/2 - 3 weeks ago. I have a grey patch of hair right in the front of my head at the hairline. It's already grey again. An employee at Sally Supply told me to use Grey Magic and a protein rinse to help with the grey. Any suggestions for keeping the patch from coming back so soon?

Is it okay to use, say, red hair dye with a highlighting cap? Or is it too thin to keep from going into the holes? Since I have a spare highlighting cap laying around and I don't really want to spend the money to go get my hair dyed I thought I would do it myself.
I colored my hair with a 28 shampoo color and the color turned out lighter then I expected. How long do I have to wait to recolor it darker?
I dyed my hair black and the colour faded. I no longer liked it. I used a colour stripper and it did remove the black, but it turned my hair medium brown with a red tinge. My hair is growing out and it looks stupid. My natural hair is a light mousy brown colour; it is hard to find a dye identical to it.
As a RN, 12 hours of opening individually packaged pills caused my flexor tendonitis. I finally figured out that a steel nail file could open that packaging without twisting or prying.

I had 4 teeth extracted at the bottom front and a temporary denture put in straight away, but now I am having trouble getting the denture to fit back in without pain.

About 2 weeks ago I decided to go from dark brown to blonde. I had 3 bleach sessions, professionally done, and it came out yellow so I went over it with a light brown. I loved it! But I got bored and stupidly went brown black 2 hrs ago. I want to lighten it back up to the dirty blonde/light brown.
So recently, about a month ago, I got my hair dip dyed blue. I had to use bleach as my hair is naturally a very dark brown. It has now unfortunately turned a weird ash greeny-grey colour and I really want to put a purple on the end of my hair now. I am wondering what product I should use.
Last night I had attempted to dye my darkish brown hair blonde with a semi-permanent hair dye. I didn't like the results no blonde was made to my hair. How long will it be till I can re-dye my hair?
I switched to an aluminum free deodorant about 9 months ago, so no antiperspirant. Things are going OK. I've tried many different aluminum free deodorants. I'm currently using the crystal one and sometimes Tom's, at work. I don't have body odor on my skin, but do on my clothes.
I have had, for a couple of days, a chafed feeling on my upper right thigh near the groin area and a little bit on the buttocks. There is no rash, no bumps or lumps, just the feeling of chafed skin. What could it be and can anyone recommend a treatment?
I permed my hair like 3 weeks ago, but I guess I didn't do it right. My hair is super dry and frizzy. I went and had it cut, but still looks the same. My end hair pieces break off really easily. I was thinking to relax my hair. Do you guys think it would be safe to do it?
I just got a perm and it broke a lot of my hair off. How can I get my hair to grow quicker? I know stimulating the scalp works wonders, but why did my hair break off so badly? It has no color on it. I'm really embarrassed.
In the period of four months, I had a perm, colored it a dark brown color, then changed my mind, had bleach and put in it to give me blonde highlights. I just recently went back to brown all over color. I am sticking with the all over brown color. From the perm and stripping of the color for the blonde highlights, my hair feels super fried.
I started coloring my hair at home and noticed that the box came with gloves that were kind of loose. What other kind of glove could I use and reuse? Something that would be safe and not rip up my hair? I was thinking of those rubber ones from Playtex? Or would they be too hard on the hair and rip it?

Last year, I started dyeing my dark brown hair a light blonde. Whenever I dye my hair, it gets lots of orangy tints, no matter what color I dye it. Later, I tried dyeing my hair a color close to my natural color, but it turned purple and then turned orange again. What do I do?

Staying with my aunt recently, I had a rash on my foot which was sore and weeping, but could find no antiseptic in her cupboard.

So I dyed my hair about one week ago to a dark brown color. I have naturally light brown hair, but now I'm really bored with it because I've always had brown hair. So now I want to dye my hair a very light blonde color. If I tried to dye it blonde would it work and would the brown dye lift easily?
I've always dyed my hair with blonde permanent hair dye and I wanted to see what it would look like black so I used a semipermanent black. Now my ends are turning green and I don't like the color. It's been about 3 weeks. Would it be OK to go back to blonde or will my ends stay green?
I'm in bad need of help. I live in California around San Bernardino. I have bad toothache where I had broken a tooth around a year ago. I have no insurance. Is there anywhere near me where i can get this fixed? I've read in several places that this is very bad and could even kill due to infection.

I recently got a sample in the mail for Nivea in-shower body lotion. I was taking a bath the same night and looked over on the shelf next to tub and saw a bottle of hand and body lotion. I just put some on me and rinsed it off. It works fine and saves me money and uses up my old lotion.

My natural hair color is dirty blonde and I decided to dye it blonde in a little bit lighter shade. The roots started growing and they are way darker and I am really not into dyeing my hair every month. I want my natural color back.

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.
