How To Straighten Wavy Hair

One sure fire way to get sleek, healthy looking hair is to straighten it. Straight hair reflects the light better giving it a shiny look which can’t be achieved with curly or wavy hair.

Using the right products helps prevent any damage as does careful use of your straightening iron.

How can people who are in charge of reporting profits to Wall Street be in charge of deciding what will be covered in your health care plan?
The pharmaceutical industry is another great example of wasteful spending on prescriptions and therapies that don’t cure anything but instead deal with a symptom. If we individually took the approach of eating healthy and using nutrition for wellness and medicine, we might not need those expensive drugs that simply mask our symptoms because we won’t be sick. You may not feel immediate relief in … Read More
