Hair Dye or Hair Die: which do you really want? Why would anyone actually want to tell you the whole truth concerning the harmful effects (if any) concerning their ware or product when their livelihood depends on it? I truly do not see reasons why people should make use of hair dye today if only they knew the terrible side effects of some of these products. Well, some reasons they give are probably logical but some others are just not good enough – such reasons as fashion and style. Evidences available from recent research findings show that hair dyes are dangerous; even when the hair is termed as the woman’s crowning glory we still have to be very careful about what we do to it.

In this Spotlight, we look at the main causes of hair loss in women, the emotional toll it can take and why research is lagging behind in treatment for female hair loss.

Underwire Bra Could Be Harmful, Report Alerts An under wire bra is a brassiere that utilizes a thin,semi-circular strip of rigid material fitted inside the brassiere fabric. The wire may be made of metal, plastic, or resin. It is sewn into the bra fabric and under each cup, from the center gore to under the wearer’s armpit. The wire helps to lift, separate, shape, and support a woman’s breasts. Many different brassiere designs incorporate an underwire, including shelf bras, demi bras, nursing bras, and bras built into other articles of clothing, such as tank tops, dresses and swimsuits.

Coconut is the fruit of the coconut palm. The oil of the nut (fruit) is used to make medicine. Some coconut oil products are referred to as “virgin” coconut oil..

Drink water when you first get up. Imagine walking into a dark room and looking for something. Chances are you will stumble and maybe even fall unless you turn on the light. Or consider starting your car in sub-zero temperatures and putting it into gear without waiting for the engine to warm up. Either situation can lead to problems or even disasters. The same is true of the human body. Without water to “wake up and turn on” the body each day, you may be running on empty, especially if you skip breakfast altogether. Have a glass of cool water right after you wake up in the morning to tell your body it’s time to get started. Like a gently flowing stream that pushes along debris and rocks, your circulatory system needs fluid to get rid of stubborn free radicals and residue from burned c
