Woman WARNS of deadly hair dye as her head almost doubles in size

in News

A young woman issues an urgent warning to others after her head DOUBLED in size from an allergic reaction to a DIY hair dye.

Nineteen year old Estelle, from Paris, shared images showing her shocking disfigurement as she struggled to breathe due to the reaction of the chemical.

The home hair dye kit contains a chemical called paraphenylenediamine also referred to as PPD which is present in a large number of hair dyes.

Estelle purchased the hair dye at a local supermarket and followed the instructions accordingly.

Rather than carrying out the patch test 48-hours in advance she waited just half an hour before putting the dye all over her head.

The young woman did previously experience a ‘mild reaction’ to a different hair dye, which is why she carried out short patch test this time round.

She knew ‘almost immediately’ that something was wrong as her scalp began to tingle and feel quite irritated.

Estelle scalp began to swell so she sought medical advice from a pharmacist and proceeded to take  antihistamines and applied a cream before going to bed.

The next morning she woke only to catch a glimpse of her inflated reflection which now measured 63cm.

Estelle stunned social media in France after posting about her allergic reaction to PPD, where her face looked increasingly swollen and raw.

Estelle speaks about the experience: “I could still see; here I was struggling to breathe. My forehead had doubled in volume. My head was like a light bulb”.

Her tongue started to swell up and she was rushed her to the hospital as she struggled to breathe.

Although she did not follow the instructions her mother hopes Estelle’s case will create awareness around the dangers of hair dye.

Her mum told the newspaper: “It’s true that she didn’t follow the instructions word for word, but the warning has to be clearer.”

PPD, often known as paraphenylenediamine, is also used in high concentrations in the popular black henna tattoos.

This chemical is the prime reason for allergic reactions to hair dye and is required for many shades of permanent colour, especially dark shades.

The chemical is banned in some cosmetics while there is a strict limit of a maximum amount of 2 percent on PPD concentration.

Estelle now wants her dreadful experience to act as a warning to other women who dye their hair.

She comments, “I almost died, I don’t want something similar to happen to other people.”

Thankfully, she has not been left with any lasting damage, however there’s a slim chance she will attempt dying her own hair again.

Please help Estelle spread awareness of the dangers and SHARE this post with your friends on Facebook.

The ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer’ Special Is Coming Under Fire for Its ‘Disturbing’ Themes

in News

There’s a possibility you’ve seen holiday classics special in your television lineup – this beloved Christmas movie gem included.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer has been airing on the small screen, and it seems to be making waves … but not for the best reasons.

This film has some character and scenes deemed disturbing by critics watching this 1964 classic and it seems to be sparking a debate.

Rudolph is an animated TV special that follows one of Santa’s reindeer who’s an outcast and saves the day.

There’s also an Abominable Snow Monster, the Island of Misfit Toys, Hermey and some other memorable characters.

Questions about the childhood favourite as people are being pointed out as“disturbing” themes throughout the 30-minute special.

For one, there are questions about Hermey the elf being a “sadistic psychopath.”

Cinemablend argues that Hermey was a bit of a psychopath because he had a “creepy obsession” with dentistry that raises questions about how got the teeth for his dolls.

Rudolph and Clarice, his gal pal and crush, having an “incredibly shallow relationship.”

Cinemablend also challenges that Rudolph “needs to slow his roll” in many ways as rescuing someone you haven’t seen in a long time doesn’t warrant affection on their end.

The Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer criticism didn’t stop there, as viewers couldn’t help but remark.

If you can’t tell by these comments people just aren’t having any of it.

Although one can certainly argue a good portion of the criticism is likely meant to be rather funny.

It does seem people are bothered by elements of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer  however they have to live in their truth.

Basically parents will need to decide whether the themes in this Christmas special are suitable or not for their children.

How the Bacteria in Our Gut Influences Our Minds

in News

We know the essential steps to remaining young and having an active mind is to eat healthy, exercise, and get a good night’s sleep.

Our brain health can also be influenced by another unexpected source — our second brain.

The ‘second brain’ is within the walls of our digestive system the gut,  which contains bacteria that helps mold our brain structure.

It can also possibly influences our moods, behaviour, and mental health, such as developing Alzheimer’s disease.

The gut is able to communicate with the brain via the vagus nerve — which extends from the brainstem to the abdomen via the heart, oesophagus and lung, known as the gut-brain axis.

Ninety percent of the fibres in the vagus actually carry information from the gut to the brain.

This communication occurs through molecules which are produced by gut bacteria and enters the bloodstream.

Based on a study these molecules were strong enough to change the behaviour of mice.

The blood releases both neuroactive compounds and hormones, which enter the bloodstream, and go to the brain.

The human body actually has around 4 lbs of bacteria once these bacteria become imbalanced, it leads to unwanted symptoms, such as the following listed below:
  • Gas
  • Bloating
  • Diarrhea
  • Joint pain
  • Weight gain or loss
  • Headaches
  • Rashes
  • Memory problem
  • Painful periods
  • Fatigue
  • Poor sleep

However an imbalance good vs bad gut bacteria, known as “dysbiosis,” has been linked to a number of psychiatric and neurological disorders, such as autism, anxiety, depression and stress.

This may even possibly play a role in neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

It also suggests a person’s stomach or intestinal distress can be the cause or the product of anxiety, stress, or depression.

Further research suggests that manipulating the gut bacteria can in some way produce behaviors related to anxiety and depression.

A 2013 study found that  replacing the gut bacteria of anxious mice with bacteria from fearless mice led the mice to become less anxious and more sociable.

It also worked in reverse — when the bold mice became timid, they got the bacteria of anxious mice and aggressive mice calmed down when scientists altered their gut bacteria.

This occurred by changing their diet, feeding then probiotics or dosing them with antibiotics.

There are several implications of this gut-brain connection such as the possibility of prevention and treatment of neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders via gut health.

This shows us having a healthy gut can actually equal a healthy mind.

Take a look at this video below for more details on this topic.

Dad Sends His Little Girl Off to School in A Sundress. What She’s In At Pickup Leaves Him Raging.

in News

When spring finally arrived in Houston, Jef Rouner’s five-year-old daughter was ecstatic to wear her new full length, spaghetti strap sundress.

Rouner allowed it but, knowing that it was still a little chilly, he sent her to school with an extra outfit in case she got cold.

In his piece in the Houston Press, he says that when he picked her up that afternoon he wasn’t surprised to see her in her warmer outfit.

But when he asked her why she had changed, he was astounded to hear her reply.

“I had to change because spaghetti straps are against the rules,” she said.

Rouner was absolutely outraged.

“Five,” he said. “She’s five. Cut her hair and put her next to a boy with no shirt on and she is fundamentally identical.”

What made him especially angry was the fact that not only did the school make her put on a shirt to cover the spaghetti straps, but she also had to put her jeans on under her full-length sundress.

“[The dress] covers everything but her shoulders and a small section of her upper chest and back. She’s worn it to church…”

To Rouner, this occurrence highlighted two issues that, having a daughter, he knew he would have to deal with eventually: body shaming and sexism.

“I really didn’t think that I would have to face that particular dragon before she even entered a numbered grade.”

It was unfathomable to him that at age five, his daughter was being told that her dress — which was marketed for girls her age and purchased in her correct size — was inappropriate.

His wife suggested that Rouner, who is a writer, compose an opinion piece.

He tells us:

“Neither one of us have any patience for the concepts of body shaming or the restriction of what girls can wear based on how distracting they might be to boys.”

In expressing his dissatisfaction about the situation, he noted that the school district’s dress code policy makes no mention of male-specific rules.

He argued that when it comes to marketing for boys’ clothing, it is not comparable to the way clothes — particularly sundresses and mini skirts — are marketed to girls.

“There is no outfit you can go into a regular children’s clothing store and pick out for a boy in his size that he will ever be violating the dress code to wear assuming he wears it as intended,” he told Liftbump. “With a girl? Thats not true, and it’s wrong.”

Rouner is aware of the concept of “rape culture,” understanding that the idea of a girl with too much skin showing is “somehow opening the door to everything from commentary about her purity to outright assault” widely exists.

But to him, the fact that his five-year-old daughter is being punished for wearing a dress seethes unfairness.

A firm believer that there is no appropriate age for a dress code to be enforced, Rouner argues that a girl shouldn’t have to dress in a way that caters to making a boy feel comfortable.

He explains

“Boys need to be taught that it doesn’t matter if the girl next to them is in a bikini or a burqa, it’s their job to learn algebra regardless, and how she’s dressed has nothing to do with them.”

He added that his only requirement for his daughter’s outfits are that they are comfortable, weather appropriate, and conducive to the activity in which she is engaging.

When situations like this arise in the future, Rouner urges his daughter to continuing asking, “Why?”

“The next time the kid wants to wear her dress I’m going to let her… And if anyone tells her to change I’m going to advise her to ask why and to keep on asking that person ‘Why?’ until she gets an answer she likes.”

He explains that, in his opinion, girls need to be taught that being forced to comply with arbitrary rules is not normal or right.

And his response to the argument that, “Rules are rules?”

“We’ve had an awful lot of rules that were ultimately found to be wrong… Not only could women not vote in this country at one time, there were women who thought that was a good idea.”

This is not an attempt for Rouner to speak for women. But he says that a significant number of women have contacted him telling him that they wish their own fathers had spoken out like he did.

He has high hopes that this is a start towards taking things in the right direction.

“Address that issue of sexism with girls and boys head on. There’s not point in pretending that unfairness doesn’t exist and it won’t go away if we ignore it,” he said.

The Groom Kisses A Woman In front Of Bride, Moments Later She Is In Tears.

in News

Wedding receptions are a great opportunity for the new keywords to bond with their family and friends. This is the time that matters the most after all the preparations are complete.

This is the part of the celebration which generally comes the highlight of the day.

After 8 years together, Kristeen and Luke Rheault have finally come to the most beautiful day of their life. Normally at the reception there is a traditional mother-son dance.

But, this defies all tradition. The groom’s mother suffers from ALS. Her atrophied muscles have chained her to a wheelchair. So Luke kneels down next to her gently.

At eye level with his mother he swings her carefully through the ballroom and tenderly dries her tears.

In this moment the bride fell in love with him all over again:

“That was probably the most touching moment I have ever experienced,” there wasn’t a dry eye in the room.” These 4 minutes really go straight to the heart,” says Kristeena.

Shortly after the recording, Luke’s mother died. But the groom is overjoyed that he was able to share this moment with his mother before she died.

The memory of her happy face will be stored forever in his heart.

Take a look at the special moment in the video clip below:

I never thought that toothpaste could do all this around the house. #12 surprised me!

in News

Normally, you use toothpaste just twice a day: in the morning before breakfast and at night before going to sleep.

But toothpaste can do much more, as these pictures show below.

When exposed to air it dries quickly and absorbs moisture around it.

So it is in fact the ultimate stain and dirt remover!

1. Tarnished silver

When silver gets tarnished, you don’t have to go buy anything! All you have to do is grab some toothpaste from the bathroom cabinet.

Just scrub for a bit and the silver will shine again like a newly discovered piece of treasure.

2. Car lights

Even your car lights require some attention every now and again. Simply apply some toothpaste to a wet sponge and the dirt will disappear almost on its own.

3. Piano keys that have seen better days.

Just a bit of toothpaste is enough to carefully clean the keys of a piano.

4. Cleaning your shoes

After walking through the mud with your sneakers or leather boots, all you really need is just a little squirt out of the tube!

5. Foggy swimming goggles

If you clean your swimming goggles with some toothpaste on the inside, it creates a razor-thin film that prevents them from fogging up again.

6. Water spots on the table

Toothpaste removes even water spots on wood caused by glasses.

7. Ink stains on your clothes

No problem! Simply apply some toothpaste, let it dry and wash the next day. Catastrophe averted.

8. Stains from hair dye

You’ll be astonished at how toothpaste removes it without any problems.

9. Mosquito bites

Toothpaste erases these little bumps that arise from mosquito bites. And all that overnight.

10. Pimples

Pimples also disappear almost on their own under toothpaste overnight.

11. Calcified irons 

Even the iron will be spick and span after some polishing with toothpaste.

12. Dirty phone screen

And cell phones look like new when cleaned with some toothpaste.

13. Ballerinas 

In a flash, these ballerinas will look just like new. And the smell is gone thanks to the deodorizing effect!

14. Rug stains

Stains on your rug are a thing of the past. Toothpaste holds its ground and enforces its cleanliness!

15. Nail polish

Just a bit of toothpaste removes any nail polish and leaves a refreshing smell of mint behind.

16. Dirty hands

And yes, of course, you can wash your hands with toothpaste.

17. Stinky thermos

You know the deal: it smells like the bog of eternal stench in your thermo. Simply fill with some lukewarm water and squirt some toothpaste inside, screw closed and shake. The thermo will no longer stink and it will be disinfected!

18. CDs

And CDs (come on, buy an MP3 player) that no longer work can be cleaned with toothpaste. Just a  smidgeon and they are spotless and will play without skipping again.

Before the next time I dash to the supermarket to buy some much needed cleaning supplies, I’ll have to stop and decide whether it can be cleaned with toothpaste or not.

What really gets me going: it’s not poisonous and still makes things spotless!

No one would have ever thought that it would be possible to use toothpaste to clean so many things.

SHARE this post on Facebook so others can benefit from the powers of this always-there household product!
