Straighten your Hair without Damaging it

Straighten your Hair without Damaging it - Brush out hair before taking a shower. Get all the knots out of that super-thick hair of yours.

Wash your hair with a normal amount of shampoo, maybe a tablespoon, and use it mainly on your scalp to cleanse and get rid of grease/residue. Use a less then the usual amount of conditioner so you don't make your scalp greasy. Work it through your hair, from the scalp to tips of strands. Rinse it out with cold water. This helps to smooth the follicles.

Gather your hair and gently wring out the excess water over the sink. Comb, never brush, your hair to get tangles out.

Take a round brush that has some hold, or grip to it, and start blow drying. Always use the medium or low (never high) heat setting, but the air flow setting can be turned up to high or whatever you like, if you have those options. Section off your hair (horizontally of course) and begin with the hair at the back of your neck and work up to the crown of your head. Part hair into five sections if it's really thick, although you may only need two sections. start with the hair on the bottom and work to the top, pulling the hair taut with the round brush and following it with the dryer. Do this until your hair is completely dry, or you may totally fry your hair with the flat iron.

Turn the heat on your flat-iron up to the second or third highest heat for thick hair, and the lower settings for thinner hair. While waiting for it to heat up, apply a heat protection spray or serum evenly on your hair.

Section your hair once again and work up to the crown of your head. Clamp the flat iron on a strand of hair and pull to the ends of hair. Curling the iron slightly inwards at the tips will give your hair a softer edge. You may need to go over a section of hair up to five times, but go slow and it will straighten better. If you have gone over five times and that strand is still curly or wavy, wait and move onto another strand. Give it a chance to cool off and then attempt again. You may want to apply a serum or cream after each section to smooth it down and hydrate it, but don't use too much or your hair will look greasy and weighed down.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
