The Various Hair Coloring Products
Hair coloring products are usually of four categories –
a.) Temporary b.) Semi-permanent c.) Deposit only/demi-permanent d.) Permanent.
All products but temporary color require a patch test before application. The idea is to determine whether the client is allergic to the product.

Article by: Maricel Sanchez

Diabetes results from either the lack of or the resistance to insulin. Insulin is a hormone produced by the beta cells of the pancreas.

Benefits of Alkaline Water

Article by: Michael C.

We get old because we are not disposing of all the internally generated wastes and toxins, and accumulate the leftovers within our body.

Every living cell within our body creates waste products. The nutrients from our food are delivered to each cell and they burn with oxygen to provide energy for us to live. The burned nutrients are the waste products. The main ingredients of all foods, expensive or inexpensive, gourmet or junk, vegetable or meat, alkaline or acid, are either carbohydrates, proteins or fats. And they are nothing but the combinations of four elements: carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen and oxygen.

These acidic wastes and toxins are disposed out of the body in liquid form, as urine or perspiration, that is why urine is acidic and skin’s surface is also acidic...

Is Sugar a Drug?

Article by: Allyson Meyler

Although there are varying perspectives on a “healthy” lifestyle as being, I’d say that most everyone can agree that drug use does not fall into this category. Drugs, and the addictions that often accompany them, can blow in like an unexpected storm, wreaking havoc on the bodies of those who abuse them and the lives of anyone in the destruction’s path.

The Health Benefits Of Good Sex

Article by: C.H.

Sex is – well, let’s skip that part. I think we all have a basic understanding of what sex is. There is no need to go further down that path. Instead, let us look at some of the healthy benefits of sex and what may be keeping you from having good sex that can lead to good health.

Sex Helps Your Health

Not only does good health lead to good sex, but good sex may lead to good health. This is because sex is very therapeutic to humans in this way – sex helps relieve stress. Your body is not made to handle continual stress. In fact, stress kills cells that help fight sickness and stress greatly reduces endorphin, your body’s natural pain-killer.

Article by: S.E.

Kegels! I said it.. the hush hush exercise us women don’t want men to know about. But why not? We are so keen on strengthening our core and rear end for bikini season but no one talks about strengthening our lady parts too. I know what you’re thinking, Kegels are done/thought of with a sexual undertone so to publicly expose yourself would be un-lady like, WRONG!
