    Well my temporary dye washed mostly out so I dyed it.......and it's not gingery enough. If I am in direct light then it looks like the gingery color on the box of dye that I picked out, but in any other light it's just a dark reddish brown. I know from past experience that permanent red hair dye fades a lot and always ends up becoming super coppery so I'm hoping that it will turn more gingery over time as I wash it.

    I got my shopping cart on www.Fragrancex.com loaded up but I'm not sure how legit they are? Have any of you used this site before?

    How long did the thread lift last for your friend? I don't hear much about thread lifts on here, but it looks painful to get done.

    I was so into wanting it since I've never heard of it before until recently, but heard some stories that freaked me out online . I heard a story online of one snapping randomly out of nowhere a while later. It seems to appear pretty though.

    Anywhooo, has anyone done a 5 day detox juice fast they liked recently? I tried my own version and started to get light headed when I was standing up in the past.

    Experimenting with tranexamic and azelaic acid lately, plus vitamin c. I'd always been so focused on keeping my skin free of acne that it hadn't occurred to me to start working on my natural redness. I wouldn't say i have rosacea, just some general redness, plus some post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. My skin is naturally so pale that if i could get rid of even the mild redness i have, it'd make a huge difference. Working on skin clarity, now that i don't really get acne anymore.

    I have my second collagen induction therapy appointment on Monday, in a series of six.

    Well it's not fading, even after doing multiple things to fade it(dish soap shampoo, lemon and chamomile tea on it for an hour in the sun, 3 times). I was watching videos on lightening hair with hydrogen peroxide; you make a paste with it and baking soda and leave it on your hair for 15 minutes to an hour depending on how light you want it and it does seem to make it a brassy, coppery color, so I'm not sure if I should try doing that in ten minute increments till it lightens to where I want it or if I should just buy a new hair dye.

    ^^^Well I bought a new hair color but it only mentioned on the inside(which could only be seen after opening it at home ) that basically your hair had to be lighter than the hair dye color in order for it to properly work. So I decided to try the baking soda+hydrogen peroxide method instead; I mixed the solution with the proper ratio and because I saw a video on youtube where a girl got major lightening after having it on her hair for 30 minutes I decided to start with 15 minutes. Once I washed it out and my hair dried there was no difference. LOL. So then I decided to try a method where you just saturate your hair with a solution of half hydrogen peroxide/half water. I felt like that was a pretty big dilution especially considering how unresponsive my hair has been to all lightening attempts but I figured I'd try it and if after ten minutes it wasn't lightening I would add more HP. Well after ten minutes there was no difference so I added more, ten more minutes no difference so I added more, ten more minutes and no difference so I added more.....etc. I had to do it like 5 times and had it in my hair for almost 90 minutes and it finally lightened.........one shade. Mind you I have thinnish light brown hair, it's not like I'm working with coarse, jet black hair here. So I sprayed it with the solution again today and it's probably 2 shades lighter now. I guess I will have to keep spraying it till it eventually gets where I want it, which at this rate will take 40 years.

    I couldn't do it either. My scalp is oily, it starts to smell bad after 2 days, when it gets greasy. I wash it every 2-3 days, otherwise I feel gross.
    This guy is one of these types of people I hate nowadays, people who think everything is a media conspiracy and tend to bring the ancient times up, showing that "it was possible" back then. What he doesn't know, is that people were horribly stinking back then, when there were no hygiene products, because body oils do smell, water alone won't clean it away. There are tons of documentaries and history facts about times before hygiene products were manufactured. Also, he doesn't know that people in ancient Rome were using ashes and some natural oils to make shampoo and clean their hair. What I said about greasy hair being gross, is what this guy says, that media made it look like gross. No, dude. It is gross. It smells bad. Head&Shoulders was my nightmare, back in childhood, because of my seboreic dermatitis, it was hurting my scalp really bad. I was 15 years old when Vichy Dercos launched in my country and I finally learned to live dandruff and itch free.
    This guy is simply idiot, he blames head&shoulders for his problems, when there are thousands of products out there, for each type of scalp and issues. He says he used to wash his hair daily with shampoo? Well, who asked him to? My boyfriend is washing his hair twice a week in the summer, once a week in the winter. He doesn't need more and there's no commercial in this world to convince him that he should do it more often.

    Same with people in comments blaming media and corporations for absolutely any kind of body care products. Wtf. Taking care of yourself and making an effort to look good and respect yourself and the society you live in, is a demonized thing nowadays. Making an effort in anything is being denied nowadays, even if it's in a relationship (you're being seen as stupid and used), or work, or a healthy lifestyle, etc. Let's all be accepted, but make zero effort to be accepted and impress and expect others to impress us. Nobody forces people to buy 100 types of products, but from walking like Chewbacca on the streets, not using shampoo and expect people to get horny when they see and smell you, from buying every single product in the stores, it's a long road.

    There were some idiot feminists in the comments who were like "oh look media/ men makes women shave and use makeup". No, stupid, women have been shaving for thousands of years and used makeup. In stone age, they would remove hair because water would freeze on it and cause them difficulties. In ancient Egypt, there are freaking MURALS with women removing hair with sugar paste/ applying make up. In ancient Egypt you'd be seen as disguting/ uncivilized if you weren't shaving your body. Cleopatra set the trend of body hair removal, so she can distinguish herself from the lower class and everyone else followed her behaviour (speaking of Influencers, lol.). Men from the high society in ancient Egypt would all shave, because beards were for associated with the servants or lower class people. So, no, there were no evil men corporations who dictate that women should remove their hair for them, lol.
    These people are spreading so much disinformation, I can't even...
    And what's even more crazy is that we watch theese videos and swallow what they say, but we don't check facts, literally 2 clicks away.

    Rant over, hahahahahahhaa ))))

    ^^^Completely agree with all of that. Didn't the ancient Egyptians shave their heads and wear wigs too because it was more sanitary than having to deal with an actual head of hair in the extreme heat?

    Yeah and people died from getting a cut because of how filthy everything was and lifespans were a lot shorter.

    To update: after 3 or 4 days of spraying my hair with much less diluted hydrogen peroxide I finally have the desired color.
