This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TRESemmé. All opinions are 100% mine.

Do you apply shampoo on your hair daily? We are advised not to apply shampoo daily for a reason that it washes out the natural oil the hair needs.  Do you believe it? I still find it hard not to apply shampoo everyday but the warning is very alarming though.  According to a hair expert in a salon I visited two weeks ago, washing hair too much could shred it and the scalp of natural oils causing flakes and frizz due to chemicals that are present in a shampoo. Too much shampoo could cause a scalp to dry leading to dandruff. She advised to use water or leave-on conditioner daily instead to keep hair in its beautiful glow.

Although not applying shampoo daily doesn’t necessarily mean we don’t take a bath everyday, still the feeling that we are not totally clean is there. It worries us and keeps us uneasy all day. Good thing there is a complete line of dry shampoo that revives the look and feel of our hair whatever style it may be on days we skip shampoo. The approach of TRESemmé Fresh Start Dry Shampoo in the lines of hair care is the answer to all our worries of skipping shampoo. This line of dry shampoo is widely used now and is even featured in a video of Top Hair Products for School.

Why it’s called dry shampoo, because we do not need water to apply it to our hair.

  2. Lift sections of dry hair and spray lightly at roots.
  3. Spray in short bursts, holding 8 to 12 inches from head.
  4. Don't spray it like hair spray as in spraying all over and continuously.
  5. After completely spraying hair, leave it for 1 to 2 minutes.
  6. Use hands or brush to distribute product evenly. 
  7. If clogging occurs, remove nozzle and rinse it under warm water then reattach.

How to Detect Hidden Camera in Trial/Fitting Room?

Most women love shopping. Agree? I do love shopping when my wallet is full. Clothing, among other things would surely be present in our shopping list. After picking clothes off the racks and before heading to the counter, we head next to trial rooms or fitting rooms to make sure our picks fit our built very well. Now, how sure could we be that there's no one enjoying the show while we are fitting the clothes on? There could be a hidden camera somewhere. Another thing in a fitting room that we should be alarm with is the mirror. How could we be sure we are not facing a two-way mirror while taking off our clothes?


I read a warning regarding hidden cameras and two-way mirrors in trial/fitting rooms and how to identify them for the safely of all women against hidden perverts. I, being a woman thought of sharing it with you in case you haven't read of this yet


How to Detect Hidden Camera in Trial Room?

In front of the trial room take your mobile and make sure that mobile can make calls.
Then enter into the trail room, take your mobile and make a call.
If u can't make a call, there is a hidden camera!!!
This is due to the interference of fiber optic cable during the signal transfer.

How to Detect a Two-way Mirror?

When we visit toilets, bathrooms, hotel rooms, changing rooms, etc., how many of you know for sure that the seemingly ordinary mirror hanging on the wall is a real mirror, or actually a 2-way mirror?  They can see you, but you can't see them. There have been many cases of people installing 2-way mirrors in female changing rooms or bathroom or bedrooms.

It is very difficult to positively identify the surface by just looking at it. So, how do we determine with any amount of certainty what type of Mirror we are looking at?

Conduct This Fingernail Test:

Place the tip of your fingernail against the reflective surface and if there is a GAP between your fingernail and the image of the nail, then it is a GENUINE mirror.

However, if your fingernail DIRECTLY TOUCHES the image of your nail, then BEWARE, IT IS A 2-WAY MIRROR! (There may be someone seeing you from the other side). So remember, every time you see a mirror, do the "fingernail test." It doesn't cost you anything. It is simple to do.

This is a really good thing to do. The reason there is a gap on a real mirror, is because the silver is on the back of the mirror UNDER the glass.

Whereas with a two-way mirror, the silver is on the surface. Keep it in mind! Make sure and check every time you enter in hotel rooms.

Share this with your sisters, wife, daughters, friends, colleagues, etc.
Pass this message to all your friends in the contacts.

My vacation in blogging I think was long enough. I seriously need to be back and start making a living off it again. Since it's Monday today, Monday Mayhem would be a cool meme to use as a come back post.

Here it goes:

I got to explain to Mr. Mayhem why:

1. Late people in a movie theater always make noise and sit in front of me.

... because they are not aware how many people are there inside the theater much more you're sitting behind.

2. Why people choose to walk in the street rather than use the sidewalk.

... because it's nice walking on a spacey way.

3. Why teens in pictures on Facebook always have to hold a red cup to prove they are cool.

... because it's the only way for them to prove they are. 

4. Why there could be nobody in line for the bathroom until you need to go.

5. Why some Walmart's have up to 100 check out lanes

... i've no idea. You tell me. 

6. Why they always need re-adjusting or scratching.

8. Why people in congress are getting a raise.


... because they are great in getting a raise, I think. 

9. Why people on bicycles think they can weave through traffic and ignore lights and stop signs.


... because... tsk, just let them be.

10. Why computers like to tell you they need to be restarted only when you are in the middle of doing something important.

Important Reminders for Senior Citizens Before Planning for Insurance

Before planning for insurance, senior citizens must remember that a written proposal is always better than spoken word, some insurance agents are purely incentive-driven, understand everything you are supposed to sign, and there are insurance policy scams.

One of the fundamental reasons for buying insurance is to be able have some form of security for the future. Senior citizens should take into consideration that they will need to protect the assets they have accumulated through the years in case of uncertain calamities as well as the fact that they should help secure the future of the people dependent on them. Life Insurance Leads have made it easier for insurance groups to address the different insurance needs of senior citizens and are able to promote their products better. Unfortunately, senior citizens are bombarded with many insurance products with different coverage and benefits. Choosing the right one could be a daunting task for anyone who does not know some things about how insurance works. Here are some reminders:

A written proposal is always better than spoken word

Always make it a point to have all the insurance proposals you receive be in written form. This is so you will have proof of the agreement and be able to review the details of the insurance policy later on. Some insurance agents could sweet-talk their way into convincing customers to choose an insurance policy and leave out all the limitations of the policy. Always have every insurance proposal presented in written form with a comprehensive list of the requirements, limitations, costs and other pertinent details.


Some insurance agents are purely incentive-driven

There are some insurance agents who are purely incentive-driven. They could promise you anything and pressure you to include an insurance policy to your financial plans immediately, instead of paying attention to what you really need. Watch who you entrust your financial plans to and choose an insurance agent who is willing to take time to understand your financial concerns and insurance needs. If your insurance agent is pressuring you to make a decision right away, it might be a good idea to find a new agent.

Understand everything you are supposed to sign

Take time to read and understand every contract related to the insurance policy you are about to purchase. Don’t sign anything that you have not read thoroughly. If possible, you can also ask the advice of a family member, trusted friend or legal adviser. Don’t be afraid to ask for clarifications if there is something in the contract that is not clear to you.

There are insurance policy scams

As in most fields of business, the insurance industry is not exempt from scammers who are waiting to take advantage of unwitting customers. Make sure the people or companies you are about to deal with are properly licensed and backed with a credible track record. You can personally contact the insurance commissioner of your state to background check on a company or an agent. You can also ask for feedback from your friends and family.

It is generally a good idea to include an insurance policy in your financial plans but, in the end, it is your responsibility as a customer to make an effort to find a good investment that you and your family can benefit from.
