Im thinking my hair grows OUT instead of DOWN?? I would die for long hair but if it isnt gonna grow then I need to know so I can get a cute short hair cut instead of letting it hang and waiting on false hopes...

White bumps on areolas...what are they?

Recently (within the past few weeks) I've noticed I have small white bumps on my areolas (they look similar to white heads or ingrown hairs), and when squeezed they leak a thick puss like substance. I have had 1 child (5 months ago) but I stopped breastfeeding after 2 weeks and my milk dried up. What could these white bumps be?

Thank you

White bumps on areolas...what are they?

The areolas and breasts in general have a large amount of hair follicules, which means excess oil could be building up and causing you to get pimples in that area. If they're white headed they may be from an infection, and it's best to see your doctor about it.

But since your pregnant it could just be Montgomery's tubercles, which are just over sized sweat glands which grow when you're pregnant.

I really think that is what it is, and that it just took a bit for you to notice them.

I hope this helped.

White bumps on areolas...what are they?

Its not milk. It may be nothing and it may be something. Get them checked out as soon as possible. Pops

White bumps on areolas...what are they?

Those are small pockets of fat; the white gunk is the fat itself. As a rule, if you leave them alone, they will go away (although it may take some time); squeezing them can cause scarring and/or infection.

White bumps on areolas...what are they?

could be related to this that i clipped from wikipedia:

Careful inspection of a mature human nipple will reveal 15-20 small openings arranged radially around the tip of the nipple (lactiferous ducts) from where milk is released during lactation. Other small openings in the puareola are sebaceous glands which may provide a little oily lubrication during lactation, otherwise known as Montgomery's glands (or glands of Montgomery).

What color to cover bleached hair turned orange?

I know I should go to a salon but I can't afford it and have had my hair ruined by salons everytime I went so don't bother telling me to go to one. And please only answer if you have had experience with this or are a professional. I don't need a lecture on why you shouldn't dye your hair.

I bleached my bangs and they turned out streaked yellow/orange/white. I have chocolate brown hair with red and lots of blonde highlights. I know that an ash color will probably turn green so should I look for a neutral color? I want to keep it a lighter brown, I will probably just lowlight them instead of completely dying over them. I was thinking a medium or light neutral brown.

What color to cover bleached hair turned orange?

I recently had the streaky orange/yellow look on my entire head! Once you've bleached your hair to that point, you've removed the red tones and need to re-deposit them or else a brown dye will turn out green. Personally, I used a demi-permanent dark red color (to avoid frying my hair further with ammonia), waited a week, then just today used a medium brown color, also demi-permanent, over the red. It came out a nice dark auburn for me, which was just what I wanted! If you really have your heart set on staying in the range of a light brown, you could feasibly select a light color that has warm, reddish tones, and hope for the best..but you run the risk of having a greenish or grayish tone to your hair. I'd say darker is safer in this case. Good luck!

What color to cover bleached hair turned orange?

to be honest with you right now whatever color you put in is going to make it look greenish. I had this happen before and need to say i had no choice but to go to a salon and have it taken care of. they had to put a red pigment back into my hair first and then recolor it. I don't know what else to say, except i have been there before.

Good luck.

What color to cover bleached hair turned orange?

I also have brown hair and it is very hard to get the colours just right.

If it has turned out streaked you should find the darkest brown you can stand and recolour. Do not use black.

It will be hard to get rid of the red overtone......Brown is the only way to to go.... and remember as dark as you can stand.

NO chesnut or anything that has a red tone to it or the red you now have will be a dark red.

Just remember Ash and Red are BAD BAD BAD....

Best of Luck

What color to cover bleached hair turned orange?

Get the Lo-real creme colour. It comes in a tube. Go with a light brown. Check the colour chart available in the store.

Hair Color Disasters: How To Recover


After-Care for Colored or Chemically-Treated Hair


Hair loss in patches - please help?

my brother is 27 and gradually over the past 6 months he started getting small patches of hairloss on his beard/facial hair. it went from 1x 1cm circle to several larger patches which a joining slowly.

Last night i noticed at the back of his head he has 3 other patches on baldness around 3cm in diameter. some of the hair growing back is white on his beard but is Very little. the patches are smooth and practically hair free.

I am very worried about this and i hope it is treatable.

please can u help or give any advice!?

Hair loss in patches - please help?

I am a professional and have seem similar before. they can be many reasons for this. The first thing is to see a doctor. but this can be from extreme stress but also lack of vitamins and minerals in the body. It can also be something more serious that only a doctor will know. If it is vitamins or stress most if not all will return when what is lacking is given back. But if it is from a more serious illness sometimes the hair doesn't come back at all or not much. The longer he waits to see a doctor the worse this will be for him. And can become permanent situation or worse. It very well may not be serious at all but I would not sit on this just for the safety of it.

Hair loss in patches - please help?

Get him to go to the doctor now. There is nothing you can do until you do. The longer he goes the worse it will get. Most all of these things are treatable, but most are cretical in the early stages. The longer he waits the worse his chances of it still be treatable.

Hair loss in patches - please help?

Is he under stress? I had a family member that had hair loss when she was going through her divorce, she started taking Stresstabs and that helped her, it did take several months but it eventually grew back, she did see her doctor too.

It sounds like aleopcia

It is treatable, he needs to see his doctor.

The doctor may do some tests, as it can have several causes, the most common being stress.

Hair loss in patches - please help?

My brother also started losing his hair in patches. We thought he was just stress or something and he was young in his early 30's when it happen I believe but it turns out he had a zinc deficiency.

Then his son also lost his hair but a fungus cause that.

So it may not be normal hair loss your brother is experiencing but maybe their is a underlying problem causing it like with my brother and his son. In most cases it's treatable.

consider ringworm

I sounds like alopecia areata, my nephew had that when he was 9 years old and now he is completely bold, he lost his hair on his entire body. ( I'm talking about every single hair in his body ).

Hair loss in patches - please help?

It seems like your brother might have alopecia areata. You can look it up on web md, mercola.com, or check out the link. In general, all indications are that it resolves on its own. God bless.

Does your hair fall a lot? Don't worry, you're not alone. Millions of people from all around the world suffer from dry, brittle and weak hair. Some of the possible reasons for falling hair are:


Too much work


Poor diet

Over-exposure to the sun


Amateur bleaching

Too frequent and inexpert use of tints, rinses or other colourants

Here is what you can do to prevent hair fall

Shampoo regularly. Remember, a CLEAN scalp is a HEALTHY SCALP.

Brahmi amla oil also promotes hair growth.

A high protein diet with plenty of fruits, green vegetables and dairy products is a must.

Drink 10-12 glass of water everyday.

Use a very mild shampoo and condition your hair at least twice a week. When you do, make sure you rinse out the conditioner thoroughly, otherwise residue build-up will cause your hair to look limp and dull.

Know your vitamins! IRON is important for healthy hair and brittle, limp hair indicates an iron deficiency. Spinach has a good iron content, so gulp it down!

ZINC helps prevent hair loss and greying. Eat adequate zinc rich foods. Overweight people tend to have zinc deficiency, which is inversely related to the body mass index. Thus if you are overweight and if your hair falls too much, you may want to increase your intake of zinc containing foods. Recipes containing stone ground, wholegrain flour are rich in zinc.

A shortfall in VITAMIN B may cause dandruff, falling hair, loss of colour and could encourage grey hair. So B group Vitamins are essential for gloss, colour and thickness.

VITAMIN C ensures the health of capillaries supplying blood to hair follicles. Make sure your diet includes plenty of fresh fruits and veggies.

VITAMIN E encourages hair growth. Switch from refined flours to wholemeal and wheatgerm, eggs, vegetable oil.

COPPER stops hair from falling. Studies show that the copper content in the blood serum of people with falling hair is less than normal. Different types of alopecia (falling hair) are seen to have a deficiency of this important trace element. Include small quantities of nuts, especially cashews and peanuts, seeds, whole milk and beans in your diet as these contain minute but important amounts of copper.

Homemade remedies for preventing hair fall:

Apply almond oil on scalp and massage.

Grind fenugreek seeds in water and apply on your scalp. Wash off after 40 minutes. Do this every morning for a month 闅哣 if it suits you! Remember, different treatments suit different types of hair.

Massage warm castor oil + almond oil into your scalp gently. Wrap a hot towel around your scalp so it gets absorbed into the hair. Do this twice a week for healthy, shiny hair.

Add 2-3 drops of honey to a glass of water and use this as the last rinse after shampooing.

Quick Hair Care Conditioner

Mix 1 egg, 2 tbs castor oil, 1 tsp vinegar and 1 tsp glycerine. Beat until frothy and massage lightly into your scalp. Wrap your head in a hot towel, steam, then wash off. This conditioner makes hair thicker, shiny, soft and manageable.

Honey Conditioner

Beat 1-2 eggs (depending on the length of the hair), 1 tsp honey and 2 tsp olive oil. Massage gently into the scalp. Steam, and shampoo after an hour.

Alcohol Conditioner

Beat 1-2 eggs with 2 tsp brandy. Massage into your scalp. Leave for 10-15 mins. Rinse well. The egg nourishes your hair and brandy stimulates hair growth.

Your hair is a vital beauty asset, requiring constant loving care. And with a little nurturing, lush, glossy hair will be yours.


Does your hair fall often Arm yourself with these tools to combat hair fall.

Wide-toothed comb

Get yourself a wide-toothed comb. This is probably one of the most important yet underutilized of all hair tools. A wide-toothed comb helps you distribute conditioner evenly all over your hair while shampooing and conditioning. In addition, it also helps get rid of knots smoothly.

The best time to get rid of knots is during conditioning. Apply conditioner and run a wide toothed comb gently through your hair.

While untangling dry hair, do so in sections. Take one section at a time, and first, untangle the ends of your hair. Do so slowly, and don?t pull unless you want your hair to fall out in clumps or break.

Don?t wait for the last minute before detangling your hair. Every night, while sitting in front of the television, run a wide toothed comb gently through your hair, until you have untangled it completely. Do this every night, and you will notice that your hair remains free from tangles.

Leave-in conditioner

Dry hair tends to tangle easily, and, needless to say, causes it to break. Make sure your hair is never devoid of moisture by always keeping a bottle of leave-in conditioner handy. The next time you feel your hair is dry and rough to the touch, simply rub a dollop of leave-in conditioner between your palms, and apply it to your hair. Comb through with your wide toothed comb. Your hair will be instantly rejuvenated and moisturized. Gradually, the texture will also improve. This is a must if you blow dry your hair regularly, or if it is chemically treated. Such hair constantly craves moisture, so get yourself a bottle of leave-in conditioner.


Olive, almond and coconut oils are all excellent for the hair. While you could apply oil as an alternative to leave-in conditioner, oil tends to make your hair sticky, and you cannot style your hair well after applying oil. Your only alternative would then be to tie up your hair. For better results with oil, apply just a few drops immediately after washing your hair, when your hair is still dripping wet. Oil doesn?t penetrate the strands as easily as leave-in conditioner does though. Nothing beats a hot oil massage followed by a steam treatment, as the steam helps the oil penetrate the hair strands, strengthening them and curtailing hair fall.


Egg is great for the hair ? there are no two ways about it! True, it causes a tremendous stink in the bathroom, and your hair may let off an ?eggy? smell, but the results are instantaneous and worth it! Egg strengthens your hair almost immediately, and the egg yolk leaves your hair shining. Whip an egg with two tablespoons of olive oil and apply it to your hair. Wash off after half an hour. Make sure you wash off with cold water though, or the egg will start cooking in your hair, and would be harder to take off! Use a scented shampoo to counter the smell of egg in your hair, and follow up with a leave-in conditioner. Do this for a month, and you will be amazed by the change in your hair texture and the reduction in hair fall.

Anyone have success with coloring their hair without hair dyes?

I am severely allergic to all hair dyes, even those found in health-food stores. My hair is black and getting white (not grey) around my temples. Anything else I can do to color just the white? I have tried those "touch-up" pencils, but they are messy and sticky.

Anyone have success with coloring their hair without hair dyes?

Well an indian way is to put Henna. At those indian grocery stores you can find little tubes of Henna. Then leave it for around 2 hours. Henna is a natural ingredient from some plant.

I have read somewhere saying different races have different hair types. is this true?

different races, as in, asians, whites, blacks etc...

different hair types like, asians are round, whites are oval while blacks are more oval.

I have read somewhere saying different races have different hair types. is this true?

Not just different races, but just going from person to person in general and depending on the genes.

I have read somewhere saying different races have different hair types. is this true?

sometimes. like indian people--they usually have thick, somewhat wavy hair. Chinese/Japanese people usually have thin straight hair. Most Africans have frizzy or curly hair. White usually have straight or curly hair (almost anything) and Hispanic people have wavy hair. These characteristics are not true for everyone. Any race can have almost every hair type.

I have read somewhere saying different races have different hair types. is this true?

everyone could theoretically have different hair types.. people of carribbean descent are more likely to have Afro hair assumedly because of the excessive sun it gets, but all people can have different types of hair. you could have dry hair one day and greasy the next, espescially if you're feeling down or stressed (which can lead to hair loss) mood can affect hair type also. hope this helps!

I have read somewhere saying different races have different hair types. is this true?

there are many different kinds of hair ,it is a genetic thing

races tend to be grouped together with particular types of hair but not always there are exceptions

but ****** tend to have specific kind of hair ,so do Aryans ,Indians ,Central Americans Papuas and so on

the most confusing race is the whites because they can have all kinds of hair ,

because their grandfathers got around i guess

I have read somewhere saying different races have different hair types. is this true?

Yes, it is true. If you look under a microscope each race has a different shape to their hair. Actually, Asians have oval hair. Whites have round, Blacks have round too but generally bigger in diameter.

Asian hair is the hardest to color because most hair color molecules are round (they can't make them oval...it is the actual color that has the shape) and so it is like putting a round peg into an oval opening. It is a squeeze.

African American hair that is virgin can also be hard to color accurately because the first layer is fiercely thick and hard for the color molecule to penetrate.

Interesting huh?

I have read somewhere saying different races have different hair types. is this true?

correct different races have different hair types blacks have real course hair, asians have thin hair...etc

I have read somewhere saying different races have different hair types. is this true?

As far as I know this is true. In general everyone no matter what race has their own hair type based on genetics, For instance, I am mixed (black and white) but, since black is more dominant race wise, I have to treat my hair like "black hair". I have to use special shampoos and conditioners and i have to comb it and brush it differently too. I hope this helps!

I have read somewhere saying different races have different hair types. is this true?

for the most part. oval cuticles are the cause of straight hair, and you might notice that a lot of asians have straight hair that is hard to get to stay up or curl. african american hair is usually coarse and takes about a zillion different mousses and creams to get it to do anything

I have read somewhere saying different races have different hair types. is this true?

yes indeed

I have read somewhere saying different races have different hair types. is this true?

Yeah thats pretty true. I'm black and my hair is really nappy. It may sound gross or weird, but while most people have to wash their everyday, I only have to wash it on every saturday. Plus, if my hair is strait to long, it begins to flake and might even break off.

I have read somewhere saying different races have different hair types. is this true?

Yes, I guess you can say that. But I think it depends on the person and not all on their race.

I have read somewhere saying different races have different hair types. is this true?

its true
