Hair Care Myths: Fact or Fiction?

Brushing your strands 100 times a day can lead to hair damage. Photo: Alamy
You've undoubtedly been told that shiny hair requires 100 brushstrokes every night and that plucking a gray hair will only result in two more growing back, right? The beautiful-strand seekers in all of us have tried our share of urban legends when it comes to hair care. But experts say don't believe everything you hear.

To find out which myths are true and which ones deserve to be washed down the drain, we consulted with two top industry gurus. Here are the real facts and fiction behind great-looking hair:
Myth: Brushing 100 Times a Day Keeps Your Hair Healthy
False: If you ask Kenneth Tepper, celebrity stylist at Pierre Michel Salon in New York City, frequent brushing does bring your natural oilsfrom the scalp down to the dry ends of your hair where they are needed, but excessive brushing can also lead to breakage. Skip the 100 strokes and go for about 15 to 20. That will be more than enough, says Tepper. And always use a 100-percent-natural boar-bristle brush, never pull and be gentle.
Myth: Stress Will Make Your Hair Fall Out
True: Stress reduces blood circulation at the scalp and a healthy scalp needs blood flow. "I just had my hair professionally analyzed," says Tepper, "and the analysis expert asked me if I was under stress. I responded, 'Duh!!! I live in New York. Who isn't stressed?'" Tepper was then shown a strand of his hair under a microscope that was bent at the root -- a sure-fire indicator of stress. So eat right and de-stress, otherwise it will show up on your hair!
Myth: Shampooing Every Day Keeps Hair Clean and Healthy
False: Nothing could be further from the truth, according to Tepper. Only very oily hair needs a daily washing; everyone else should find a way to refresh their style in between shampooing to avoid depriving your ends of vital oils. Try rinsing and conditioning every other day instead of shampooing daily.
Myth: Swimming Pools Will Turn Your Hair Green
True: But only if you're a blonde. Chlorine can turn lighter shades of hair a scary green tint -- especially if your locks were dry to begin with. To keep this from happening, apply conditioner to hair before diving in. This will seal the cuticle so your strands won't absorb the harmful chemicals.

Myth: Ingredients Like Semen, Eggs, Mayo and Olive Oil Are Your Best Conditioners
False: Keep those home remedies in the refrigerator and in the bedroom and away from your hair, said Tepper. While adding moisture of any sort can be beneficial, even the drugstore type of conditioners have certain ingredients like keratin and amino acids that are better for your hair. Besides, egg protein and mayonnaise oil molecules are too big to get inside the hair.
Myth: Coloring Your Hair While Pregnant Is Bad
True: All-over dyes are not recommended, especially during the first trimester ofpregnancy because the chemicals can get into your system. Highlights, on the other hand, do not touch the scalp, therefore there is no absorption into the body. To be safe, only do off-the-scalp highlights or lowlights if you decide to color, advises Mark Garrison of New York's upscale Mark Garrison Salon.
Myth: Cold Water Makes Hair Shiny
True: A cool rinse will close the hair cuticle enabling it to reflect light better, so turn the shower to cold and think warm thoughts!
Myth: Dandruff Is Contagious
False: Most people do not have real dandruff, they have a flaky scalp from cold weather and too much heat at home. "It's a dry scalp, not a virus or infection," said Garrison.
Myth: Standing on Your Head Makes Your Hair Grow Faster
True: Getting more blood flow to your scalp is always good, but it might be more easily achieved by massaging the scalp. "You might fall and hurt yourself, then who cares how long your hair is," said Tepper.
Myth: Shaving Your Head Will Make Your Hair Grow Faster
False: Going for a G.I. Jane look will not give you thicker, faster growing locks, so put away the razor. When the head is shaved, your hair will grow in together and all at the same length, making it appear thicker, but it's not. Even if you're not taking it all off, cutting the hair does not make it grow back quicker.
Blondes don't have all the fun. Redheads have more sex according to one study. Photo: Alamy
Myth: Plucking Gray Hairs Will Cause More to Grow
False: Plucking will only make you bald. You will actually destroy the follicles if this is repeated over and over, according to Garrison. You will want that gray hair one day, so save it!
Myth: Cutting Hair During a Full Moon Will Speed Up the Growing ProcessFalse: Some astrology followers believe that cutting your hair during the new moon or the first phase of the moon, when the light is increasing, will make hair grow back faster, but it won't. Said Garrison, "This may be more psychological."
Myth: If You Cut Your Hair on Friday the 13th, a Family Member Will Die
False: Just like some people believe black cats and walking under ladders can result in years of bad luck, this is another silly superstition. Even so, Garrison said jokingly, "I'm afraid to try!"
Myth: Dye Your Hair Red and You Will Have More Sex
True: Blondes may have more fun, but redheads have more sex according to one study. Once you go red, you may never want to change your head!
Myth: Using Vodka on Your Hair in the Sun Will Lighten It
False: "Drink it instead," said Garrison. "Don't waste it on disappointing results."

El que no sirve para servir, no sirve para vivir.

How to Defend Marriage





Just as most abortion proponents want to skip the debate about when life begins and argue about “choice” instead, most homosexual activists want to skip the argument about what marriage is.
by National Catholic Register | Source: Catholic.net
Editorial

Here is an updated version of our resource list of arguments and actions for readers.
Why homosexual marriage is wrong. 

World cultural and legal history has never thought of marriage as anything but one thing: the union of a man and a woman.

But just as most abortion proponents want to skip the debate about when life begins and argue about “choice” instead, most homosexual activists want to skip the argument about what marriage is.

Instead, they argue about rights or about discrimination. But the fact is, the law already severely restricts who can and can’t marry. Marriage is restricted by age, by previous marriage status and by kinship, for starters. And marriage necessarily has to be “discriminatory.” Its definition has to exclude other pairings (roommates, brothers and sisters, etc.) from claiming the benefits given to married couples.

Why does society have to restrict marriage so severely? Because marriage performs a crucial function for society. Its purpose is the propagation and protection of children, and to conform sexual relationships to morality. Homosexual “marriage” would do none of these things.

If either of your parents chose a homosexual marriage, you wouldn’t be here. And the uncomfortable truth that few are acknowledging is that homosexual lifestyles are not healthy — physically, emotionally or morally.

Proctologists advertise heavily in homosexual publications, because homosexual sex injures its participants. Even in countries where homosexuality is accepted, homosexuals suffer higher rates of depression and suicide than the general public.

And children are bound to suffer if their parents are part of the homosexual scene. From the Village People song “YMCA” to the Showtime television show “Queer as Folk,” homosexual culture has long celebrated sex with teens. One of the most-often searched for pornography terms on the Internet is “twink,” which is homosexual slang for underage teen-age boys. In 
The Gay Report, by homosexual researchers Karla Jay and Allen Young, the authors report data showing that 73% of homosexuals surveyed had at some time had sex with boys 16 to 19 years of age or younger.
What will follow homosexual marriage? 

It’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking that legalized homosexual marriage will mean simply keeping things the way they are, only offering health benefits to homosexual couples.

In fact the changes will be dramatic: Public schools will include texts and materials treating the two types of marriages identically. If you die, your children could be adopted by either a homosexual couple or a heterosexual couple — to prefer one over the other would be illegal prejudice. Homosexual couples would be spotlighted whenever romance is spotlighted: On Valentine’s Day at the public library, in Christmas specials on television, and in billboards on the Interstates.
Why a marriage amendment is needed. 

Now that homosexual marriage is legal in Massachusetts, it will effectively be legal in your state, too. Federal precedent protects the status of people who move from state to state. Some 80% of the people who entered into civil unions in Vermont left the state after that. It will be the same in Massachusetts.

Many argue that marriage laws ought to be a state matter. But a national situation requires a federal response — and it’s easier to have one fight at the federal level rather than to wage 50 battles when losing any one would mean a total loss.
What you can do. 
Write to your representatives in state and federal government. Find their names and addresses by typing in your ZIP code at 
www.vote-smart.org. Use the arguments above or your own arguments. Tell them you back the Federal Marriage Amendment and are appalled that the U.S. Senate killed it. Ask what they plan to do to stop this assault on marriage.
Pray. In his apostolic letter on the rosary, Pope John Paul II called for daily rosaries for peace in the world, and for defense of the family. He said attacks on the family were “menacing … so as to make us fear for the future of this fundamental and indispensable institution and, with it, for the future of society as a whole.”
Evangelize. The only long-term solution to this crisis will be the re-Christianization of society. Take up the Holy Father’s straightforward and simple challenge to promote Sunday Mass, confession, prayer and community service. 

Versículo del Día

No tardes en volverte al Señor, ni lo dejes de un día para otro, porque su furor estalla de repente y perecerás en el día del castigo.  (Sirácide(5, 1-10)

Oración: Señor, Tu eres todo misericordia. Por esa razón, he de seguir pecando, porque seguro me perdonarás? Yo no sé hasta cuando yo esté aquí. No sé qué me puedes perdonar y qué no. Aunque Tu misericordia es infinita, mis pecados son muchos. Volverme a Tí es cambiar mi vida y aunque a veces es difícil, sé que es la única manera de tener paz y verdadera felicidad!

Frases De Madre Teresa(2/23/11)

Cada obra de amor, llevada a cabo con todo el corazón, siempre logrará acercar a la gente a Dios.

HIJOS SIN LIMITES!





HIJOS SIN LÍMITES 


Una Mujer de 55 años visitaba a su hijo de 23 en la cárcel. El estaba ahí por homicidio culposo ya que había atropellado a un niño al entrar a alta velocidad en una calle en sentido contrario tratando de escapar de una patrulla que lo perseguía por haberse pasado un alto.

Entro al penal completamente destrozado de los huesos y en silla de ruedas ya que,  el Padre de la criatura muerta se le fue a golpes,  y el Policía - que ya estaba justo detrás - se hizo de la vista gorda y no lo detuvo hasta que casi lo mata...

El hijo le decía a la Madre:  

- Sabes Mamá, yo no soy un asesino premeditado ni un maldito desalmado, solo que ya concluí que estoy aquí porque APRENDÍ Y ME ACOSTUMBRÉ a romper reglas y a no cumplirlas jamás sin ningún límite

- Ay hijo!!!, es que de chiquito te ponías taaaan difícil, cada vez que yo te daba una orden o una instrucción, me desafiabas y  hacías unos berrinches tales que yo no lo soportaba y te dejaba hacer y deshacer con tal de evitarme conflictos y de que estuvieras calladito y complacido para que tu Papa no me dijera: calla a ese niño !!!.

Desde que tenías 3 o 4 años, cuando yo te decía:

1) Cómete tus verduras para que crezcas sano y fuerte, me decías:  Yo no quiero ser sano ni fuerte, no me importa, ¡déjame en paz!

2) Recoge tu cuarto:  No voy a recoger nada, así estoy contento, ¡si quieres recógelo tú!

3) No destruyas las cosas, cuídalas:  No me importa yo quiero jugar así, y si no me compras cosas nuevas gritaré y lloraré hasta que me las compres.

4) En esta casa se hace lo que yo digo: No Mamá, no lo haré ¡YA NO TE QUIERO y si me hablas así, me voy a ir a otra casa!

Y así siguió la lista interminable de instrucciones y respuestas a lo largo de la vida de este hijo REBELDE y padres PASIVOS. FLOJOS Y BLANDENGUES...

Hasta que el hijo interrumpió a la madre GRITÁNDOLE...

¡¡BASTA YA MAMA!! : SOLO DIME ¿CÓMO FUE QUE SIENDO UN ADULTO LE CREÍSTE Y OBEDECISTE  A UN NIÑO TAAAAN CHIQUITO...??

HOY A MIS 23 AÑOS ESTOY DESTROZADO, INFELIZ Y SIN FUTURO, DE NADA SIRVIÓ QUE ESTUDIARA O QUE NO HAYAMOS SIDO POBRES, LE QUITÉ LA VIDA A UNA CRIATURA Y DE PASO LES ARRUINÉ EL RESTO DE LA VIDA A TI Y A MI PADRE!!! LA VIDA EN LA CÁRCEL ES UNA MISERIA...

PREGUNTA:

SI TU HIJO  ESTUVIERA A PUNTO DE CAER EN UN PRECIPICIO Y TU LO ESTUVIERAS SOSTENIENDO DE LA MANO:  ¿¿¿LO APRETARÍAS CON TODAS TUS FUERZAS O LE DETENDRÍAS LA MANO SUAVECITO PARA QUE NO LE DUELA???

LO MISMO PASA CON LOS VALORES, LA DISCIPLINA Y LAS REGLAS,  SÉ RESPONSABLE YAPRIÉTALO FUERTE Y LO SALVARAS DEL PRECIPICIO DE LA VIDA EN SOCIEDAD, PORQUE NADIE A QUIEN ÉL DAÑE CON SU INDISCIPLINA VA A TENER COMPASIÓN DE EL.  SI TÚ, QUE LE DISTE LA VIDA Y LO AMAS,  NO SOPORTAS SUS BERRINCHES,  ¿¿¿QUÉ TE HACE PENSAR QUE LOS DEMÁS LO HARÁN...???

UN GRITO A TIEMPO, UNAS NALGADAS, UN CASTIGO BIEN IMPUESTO, SIN AFÁN DE MALTRATARLOS O HERIRLOS SINO POR "SU BIEN",  TAL VEZ DEJE UNA PEQUEÑA HUELLA PERO LOS HARÁ SENTIR SEGUROS Y BIEN CLAROS SOBRE LA DIFERENCIA ENTRE EL BIEN Y EL MAL. Y A LA LARGA,  SABRÁN QUE SI LOS CUIDAS Y LOS EDUCAS BIEN ES PORQUE LOS AMAS Y NO PORQUE TE IMPORTA MÁS TU COMODIDAD Y TU TIEMPO LIBRE.

EVÍTALES LA INFELICIDAD DE LA DISCIPLINA IMPUESTA POR LA SOCIEDAD Y/O  LA LEY O HASTA LA MUERTE A MANOS DE OTROS O EL SUICIDIO POR LA CULPA DE SUS PROPIAS FALTAS....

...Y PÁSALO A TODOS LOS PADRES Y MADRES QUE CONOZCAS...  y también para los tíos, sobrinos, conocidos.... a todos nos hará bien... muy bien...

Versículo del Día


Yo, en cambio, os digo: Amad a vuestros enemigos, y rezad por los que os persiguen. (Mateo 5:38-48)

Oración: Amar al enemigo no es dejarme atropellar por el y no es necesariamente invitarlo a mi casa. Es simplemente desearle el bien a pesar de que el me desee y me trate de hacer el mal....muchas veces sin querer y sin darse cuenta. Siempre he creido que no hay tanta gente mala como ignorante.

Versículo del Día

Jesús le replicó: “¿Qué quiere decir eso de ‘si puedes’? Todo es posible para el que tiene fe”.
Entonces el padre del muchacho exclamó entre lágrimas: “Creo, Señor; pero dame tú la fe que me falta”. Marcos (9, 14-29)

Oración: Señor, con fe se ven milagros. Esto es una realidad. Lo que nos falta a menudo es FE. Siempre hay una duda en el fondo del corazón y es esa duda la que tenemos que conquistar. Al tener fe, tenemos paz, comprendemos, aceptamos y vemos milagros en nuestras vidas. Dame FE!

How Your Teen Is Wired


Is your teen on the track to a meaningful future? Are you finding out what a joy it can be to help make the most of how God has wired him or her?
Many of us want to help our teens dream big, fulfilling, God-honoring dreams. But how do we do that?
The first step is to understand the great experiment known as your teen. In all of human history, there's never been another person with your teen's exact mix of God-given personality, talents, interests and spiritual gifts. As the two of you get to know that unique wiring through self-tests like the ones in the book Wired by God, you'll start to see which kinds of dreams might make a good fit.

Your Teen's Basic Bent

Here are some questions you can use anytime to find out how God has wired your young person:
  • "What really drives you?"
  • "What's the most fun you've ever had helping someone else?"
  • "What dreams do you think God has given you?"
  • "What can you do that most people can't?"
  • "What ability would you most like to develop? Why?"
  • "If God hired you for a summer job, what would you hope it would be? Why?"
And this one from Doug Fields, a youth pastor: "If you could design a specific way to serve God and knew you wouldn't fail, what would you do?"
Remember that your purpose is to listen and learn, to better understand and appreciate your teen's uniqueness. This is not the time for lectures and advice. Figuratively speaking, you need to have big ears and a small mouth, tough skin and a tender heart.
Another way to learn by questioning is to talk with others in your teen's life: teachers, youth group leaders, coaches, school counselors, Scout leaders, Sunday school teachers, parents of close friends. Ask what they've observed about your child's likes and dislikes, interests and passions, abilities and aptitudes.
Often these people will confirm your own observations. Sometimes, though, they'll describe a side of your teen that you hadn't noticed — or offer an insight you'd overlooked.

Your Teen's Interests and Passions

Here's a way to help your teen pinpoint his or her interests and natural abilities. It's based on "The Vision Quest," a tool developed by Tim Sanford, a counselor at Focus on the Family who works with a lot of young people.
Give your teen these instructions:
On a piece of paper, list the things you've done since the fourth grade. We're talking about academics, sports, social events, the arts, student government, hobbies, interaction with family and friends, personal adventures, youth activities, socials, special events, camps, worship, leadership, volunteer work, mission trips, "helping out," clubs, service projects, job duties, volunteer or assigned tasks, and chores.
You don't have to compile your whole list at once. Allow two or three weeks, adding to it as new memories come to mind. If you don't know whether to include something in the list, go ahead and put it down anyway.
Now give each activity a "positive" or a "negative" rating. How did it turn out? How did it affect you?
After several days, pull your worksheet out and think again about the events to which you gave a negative value. Look for patterns. For example, if events connected with mechanical things (fixing the car, building something, helping with props at the school play) consistently ended in disaster, you're probably not the mechanical type.
Now move to the positive side of the worksheet. Ask yourself the questions below as you look over those events.
  • "Is there a pattern or anything these events have in common?"
  • "Are some of the activities things I'd like to pursue more?"
  • "How can I begin doing more of these kinds of activities?"
  • "What kinds of qualities, talents, character traits and skills do these activities require?"
  • "Do I have some of those qualities and traits?"
  • "Are any circumstances or events missing from my worksheet? If so, what are they, and why might they be missing?"
  • "Are there any activities I've never done before, but I'd like to try?"

Talk With Your Kids About Online Safety

Action Step #4 — Set Basic Rules for Internet Use

Talk with your child before setting up and logging onto his or her new computer. Setting basic rules for Internet access can go a long way toward building a nurturing online environment in your home.
These rules can include when and how often your child may go online, how to keep his or her identity private, not responding to communication that makes them scared, uncomfortable, or confused, talking to a parent or guardian before meeting someone he or she first met online, and respecting the rights of others while online.NetSmartz.org, an interactive, educational safety resource from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC), provides safety pledges tailored to a child's age that you can adapt for use with your family.
A fun way to learn safety rules is to visitNetSmartzKids.org. It's a safe Web site loaded with interactive activities, games and music, that teaches the dangers to watch out for online and how to avoid them.
For example, in "Who's Your Friend on the Internet,"Nettie and Webster, two NetSmartz characters, introduce children to three mystery guests behind doors on a stage. Two of the voices sound like children. One sounds dangerous. Children are asked to pick which door hides the person who could be their "friend." When all the doors are revealed, children find out that all three voices are the same "WizzyWig" (WizzyWigs are characters representing possible dangers to children online). The activity teaches children that people online may not be who they say they are.
It's also important that you talk with your child about what to do if they find something online that makes them feel scared, uncomfortable, or confused. You don't want your child or teen to hesitate to come to you about something scary or upsetting because they are afraid that you will pull the plug on their Internet privileges.
Instead, says Christine Loftus from NetSmartz Workshop, show children how to turn off the power switch on the monitor if something such as pornography or an instant message upsets them. Shutting off the monitor enables the child to block the image but does not shut off the computer, and enables you to hit the ON button to look at the screen and find out why your child is upset.
"Emphasize that it's not their fault if they see something that makes them feel scared or uncomfortable."
