I had a long conversation with a fellow 3C-er at Curlfest about this product. This styler can be used for almost anything and everything, but if you’re looking for smooth, stretched curls, the key is knowing how to use it. Liberally apply this from roots to ends on soaking wet hair (not damp!) and it’ll lock in whatever twist-out your heart desires with zero stickiness.
Repeated dieting can actually lower metabolism and thus make your body retain more of what you put into it. Increasing exercise while not giving your body more food to compensate can also increase body fat storage. Dieting also increases heart disease risk, when compared to simply gaining a little weight. If you really need to lose weight, the most effective way is to increase exercise and cutting only a little food, while concentrating on fruits, veggies, and high fiber foods.

Cancer, a very common and sometimes fatal cause of unexplained (idiopathic) weight loss. About one-third of unintentional weight loss cases are secondary to malignancy. Cancers to suspect in patients with unexplained weight loss include gastrointestinal, prostate, hepatobiliary (hepatocellular carcinoma, pancreatic cancer), ovarian, hematologic or lung malignancies.


Since I was small growing up I’ve always had nice long naturally curly hair, no products needed. Then for my primary school graduation my mom permed my hair, and since then she has cut it and permed it, mainly because she liked short hair, which i hated but i had no say in my own hair. My hair got completed damaged from all its been through, like its tired of all of the torture, my hair never really had time to breathe. Now recently my mom said that I should cut of alllllllllll of my hair and go back natural smh. April 19th, I big chopped. To be honest, I hate,hate,hate! short hair on my face, my mom say its cute along with friends but, with me its different. My hair it coarse 4c hair now and my past hair dresser says it “suck’s moisture”. My hair seems to be growing slow, and I haven’t used any products but have ordered a set of Mizani hair products that are on there way here.
Low-calorie diets are also referred to as balanced percentage diets. Due to their minimal detrimental effects, these types of diets are most commonly recommended by nutritionists. In addition to restricting calorie intake, a balanced diet also regulates macronutrient consumption. From the total number of allotted daily calories, it is recommended that 55% should come from carbohydrates, 15% from protein, and 30% from fats with no more than 10% of total fat coming from saturated forms.[citation needed] For instance, a recommended 1,200 calorie diet would supply about 660 calories from carbohydrates, 180 from protein, and 360 from fat. Some studies suggest that increased consumption of protein can help ease hunger pangs associated with reduced caloric intake by increasing the feeling of satiety.[4] Calorie restriction in this way has many long-term benefits. After reaching the desired body weight, the calories consumed per day may be increased gradually, without exceeding 2,000 net (i.e. derived by subtracting calories burned by physical activity from calories consumed). Combined with increased physical activity, low-calorie diets are thought to be most effective long-term, unlike crash diets, which can achieve short-term results, at best. Physical activity could greatly enhance the efficiency of a diet. The healthiest weight loss regimen, therefore, is one that consists of a balanced diet and moderate physical activity.[citation needed]
Get enough sleep daily; the CDC recommends the following by age group (naps inclusive); 12-18 hours from birth to 2 months, 14-15 hours from 3-11 months of age, 12-18 hours for 1-3 years of age, 11-13 hours for 3-5 years of age, 10-11 hours for 5-10 years of age, eight and a half to nine and a half hours for 10-17 years of age and those 18 and above need seven to nine hours of sleep. Elderly people need about seven to nine hours but do not sleep as deeply and may awaken at night or wake early, so naps (like kids need) allow them to accumulate the total of seven to nine hours of sleep.

Triglycerides are found in body fat and from the fats you eat. Triglycerides levels in the blood reflect what you have eaten recently. HDL and LDL cholesterol levels show what you have been eating over a long period of time. If you eat a fatty meal your triglyceride levels will be elevated for a short period of time. If you continue to eat a diet high in fat your triglyceride levels will continue to rise. The liver transfers the triglycerides into body fat, or cholesterol, which raises LDL and lowers HDL levels in the blood.

Regular exercise can prevent and reverse age-related decreases in muscle mass and strength, improve balance, flexibility, and endurance, and decrease the risk of falls in the elderly. Regular exercise can help prevent coronary heart disease, stroke, diabetes, obesity, and high blood pressure. Regular, weight-bearing exercise can also help prevent osteoporosis by building bone strength.
Gastrointestinal disorders are another common cause of unexplained weight loss – in fact they are the most common non-cancerous cause of idiopathic weight loss.[citation needed] Possible gastrointestinal etiologies of unexplained weight loss include: celiac disease, peptic ulcer disease, inflammatory bowel disease (crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis), pancreatitis, gastritis, diarrhea and many other GI conditions.

While there is a lot of great DIY stuff floating around the web, I’ve actually found a product (and company) that I prefer much better to any DIY hair care stuff I’ve tried. For my own scalp issues and for my children’s STUBBORN cradle cap, nothing DIY worked. I found HairStory and was so happy to find natural products that went above and beyond my own strict requirements for hair care. You can read more about why I love them in this post. Or you can visit their shop here.
I really appreciate this site…you have a lot of great info. Currently, I have ended my transition a couple of weeks ago when I cut off the remaining relaxed ends. I transitioned for 14 months. I thought my transition was over…think I was wrong. Half of my hair is nice and curly (right side). The ends are curly…it’s just beautiful! And then on my left side..I don’t know what happened. It’s slightly wavy but the ends are straight! I just want to find out where it all went wrong and what I failed to do. I thought it might be heat damaged but wouldn’t that be visible on both sides? Will it all eventually be the same? It was heart breaking to have made this discovery bc I desperately wanted to do the WnG’s or at least have my hair roughly in a uniform curl pattern. Plz help!

PURE, natural hair care selections. Made with the highest quality nutrients to naturally bring your hair to life.
“More and more women with natural hair are color-treating it,” says Prestonia, and that can cause serious scalp problems like excessive shedding, dry scalp, and even bald spots. And even if you’re new to natural, past use of chemical relaxers could have irritated the scalp. If you’re noticing — or feeling — tightness, itchiness, or any sort of discomfort, get it checked out by a professional ASAP. “The longer you wait, the more severe the issues may become,” says Prestonia. “Be proactive so that any damage can be halted, minimized, and healed immediately.”

No surprise, then, that we just keep getting fatter: Today, nearly 69 percent of American adults are either overweight or obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And the heavier our nation becomes, the greater our collective risk for many deadly diseases, including type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and breast, colon, and prostate cancers — to name just a few.
Priority chemicals such as propyl-paraben, butyl-paraben, phthalates, formaldehyde, formaldehyde-donors, or nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs). To truly understand the formulation and the chemicals therein, we also expect full ingredient transparency so we can screen them. This means that generic ingredients like fragrance either need to be natural or have their sub-ingredients listed.
To identify studies regarding weight maintenance, with an emphasis on dietary interventions, a complete search of articles was carried out by using PubMed and SCOPUS. The studies were restricted to those in English. The key words included ‘overweight’, ‘obesity’, ‘weight maintenance’, ‘weight regain’, and ‘diet therapy’. Articles from 1974 to 2013 were included. We found 75 articles. We excluded studies published only as abstracts and those involving behavioral therapy or exercise per se. Finally we evaluated 26 studies.
The least intrusive weight loss methods, and those most often recommended, are adjustments to eating patterns and increased physical activity, generally in the form of exercise. The World Health Organization recommended that people combine a reduction of processed foods high in saturated fats, sugar and salt[11] and caloric content of the diet with an increase in physical activity.[12]

If the name doesn’t reel you in, how about the fact that this delectably creamy concoction can make your comb-thru that much easier? The tangles simply melt away when you slather this on, and it doesn't leave your hair feeling heavy and greasy. With hints of vanilla and butter icing, we suggest you top your hair off with it, although the smell may make you want to spread it on a cupcake.
I just decided to go natural and I’ll be doing the big chop in two weeks time. I’ve transitioned for four months while doing some protective styles. The one I have on now is a twist out with my relaxed-nartural hair. But the centre of my scalp has been itching me for years and I find myself pulling at it to get some relief. What could be the cause and what can I do to remedy it? Thanks

The Lavender Rosewater conditioner from the line, in particular, has incredible slip that makes detangling your curls and coils less of a process.
