Fighting The FrizzWritten by Sharon Jacobsen
My daughter hates her hair. Several of my friends hate their hair, too. Why? Because it tends to frizz!
We're not talking afro style frizz here or even anything remotely close, but when your hair's supposed to be sleek and smooth, even tiniest amount of frizz can be frustrating.
While I'm not going to suggest I can cure your problems, having had my share of frizzes I've picked up a good few tips through years and hopefully, by following them, you'll soon be experiencing frizz-free days, too.
DO NOT wash you hair daily Although you may feel that your hair will be dirty if you don't wash it every morning while you shower, others are very unlikely to notice. Only greasy hair will show signs of being unwashed after one day and frizzy hair is rarely greasy. On contrary, fact that you're stripping away your hair's natural oils is most likely cause of your frizz problem. Leave your hair for 3-4 days between washes.
DO use conditioner Try to find a moisturising conditioner and use it after every wash. It's really worth paying a little extra for a good quality conditioner and if you can't afford both a good shampoo and a good conditioner, put extra money into conditioner.
DO give your hair an intensive hot oil treatment About once every third wash (if you're sticking to 3-4 day washing guide), use a leave-in intensive conditioner on your hair. This will help replace any natural oils that your hair has lost due to abrasive cleaners in shampoo and your hair being exposed to elements (sun, wind etc).
DO NOT use chemicals on your hair Those who are unhappy with their hair have a tendency to colour it and use all sorts of other chemicals in a vain hope of somehow making it look better. The truth is, these chemicals are just adding to your problem. If your hair has a tendency to frizz, keep away from unnecessary chemical products.
Which Element of the Horoscope are You?Written by Alma De La Cruz
No doubt that millions of persons begin their journey rushing through newspapers to see daily horoscope. We want horoscope to tell us positive things will happen in next 24 hours, like how will somebody look at us nicely, how fast we will be rich, or our love compatibility. In contrast, we are less interested to come up with a horror-scope like ‘today is not your day for love, business deals are not in stars for you today. ’
But first of all, which element of horoscope are You? Hmm… don’t really know what horoscope is? Well, horoscope is an astrological chart for a specific person or group that correlates each zodiac sign as they are crossed by Sun, Moon and planets and position of planets in astrology. Now, elements Fire, Earth, Air and Water are based on ancient Greek philosophy; they are building blocks of life: solid earth upon which we stand, running water we use as a resource, air we breathe and fire which keeps us warm and aids in creation of additional resources. The horoscope elements reflect a quality of human nature and correspond also with Tarot: Fire = Wands; Earth = Coins; Air = Swords; Water = Cups.
Here are list of Sun Signs elements, but if you still don’t know, ask mom for your birthday and keep reading this:
