Life Changing Body Situations

When it comes to me having anything done permanently on my body, I go real slow. I usually sleep over for it for months before I decide on whether I really want to go ahead with whatever it is. I remember me thinking long and hard before I got my second set of piercings done some years ago. And when I had my laser hair removal done. And when I had my teeth whitened. I needed to be sure I really wanted to have these procedures done. because the only way is up for me, there was no going back. And that is my issue with having tattoos done.

I admire some tattoos I have seen on others. I have a few friends that have a couple of tattoos, and some of them look really good. But tattoos are not for me personally. And I think that is the case for many as well. I believe tattoos are more of impulse purchases, many get drunk and wake up with a tattoo they can’t remember having done, and they may have to live with for the rest of their life.

Well the good thing about tattoos today is that thanks to advancement in technology, you can get rid of tattoos you no longer want. City Tattoo Removal Clinic, a clinic with over 15 years of experience in laser tattoo removal, is renowned for removing unwanted tattoos using PicoSure and PicoWay. The laser treatment used is suitable for all skin types, even the toughest colours can be removed.

The Laser tattoo removal treatment at City Tattoo Removal Clinic works by pulsing laser light into the tattoo which shatters the ink into tiny pieces, the body spots these particles as a foreign substance and removes the minute ink particles using the natural detoxification processes. This treatment does not damage the skin, like excision, dermabrasion and acid, it simply gets rid of the unwanted ink.

I have dreamt of having various procedures done at various points in my life. There is always a new sort of cosmetic treatment around these days, and I will be elaborating more on why I would want some done and not want them done in a different post real soon, so keep your eyes open. But I am happy treatments like this Laser tattoo removal exists for those who need it. Thanks to this treatment, you don’t have to live with body ink you don’t want.

What are your thoughts? Do you have a tattoo you regret?

Why Chemicals are Bad for the Hair

It all starts with a dissatisfaction of our natural hair. Every time you look in the mirror, you wish that your natural hair was better. And in the pursuit of having the perfect hair, we apply all sorts of products to get our hair looking the way we think we want it to.

Relaxers, texturizers, hair sprays and even some hair creams could be extremely harmful to your hair. On the surface, those products seem to give the results that you have been looking for but at the expense of the health of your hair. They contain several harsh chemicals like sodium hydroxide (lye), calcium hydroxide or guanidine hydroxide (no-lye), and hydrogen peroxide to get your hair to behave in the nature and style that you desire. But leaves the health of your hair in a very bad state.

These chemicals can be so harsh for our delicate hair because they negatively affect the pH level of the hair. The continuous application of these harmful hair products would continue to destroy the hair.

Here are some of the reasons why chemicals are bad for your hair.

 

  1. Chemicals will stunt hair growth

Our hair needs the right environment, pH level and moisture to grow. Using these harsh chemical in your hair products, especially relaxers and texturizers, go deep into the scalp. It strips the hair of its moisture.

The worse part about chemicals most especially the ones in hair relaxers is that the chemicals used to relax the hair also inhibit its growth.

 

  1. Chemicals will thin your hair

The continuous application of perms, relaxers, texturizers and other chemical-based hair products will wear our hair out. At each application, the chemicals start to weaken the hair strands and most times it leads to having split ends. When you apply a relaxer, the part that suffers the most is your natural hairline. The front of your hair gets so thin that it could start to break which could damage the hair-line severally.

 

  1. Chemicals will lead to breakage and hair loss

These chemicals can also lead to overall hair breakage and loss. The chemicals in hair products can make your hair lose its elasticity which will make your hair fragile and cause it to break.

 

  1. Chemicals can burn your scalp

Ladies believe that when they leave a relaxer or texturizer longer in their hair, theyโ€™ll get better results. Especially if they have very coarse hair like me (I have a 4c type hair). The truth is that the longer you leave those products in your hair, the more your scalp burns. This will cause serious pain from the burn or irritation. The pain gets worse when hair products that contain alcohol are applied to your hair.

With all these problems, the best decision you could ever make is to go natural and stay natural. I have not applied any form of chemical on my hair for over a year now and I can’t remember the last time my hair was this healthy.

My hair is full, strong and growing quickly and beautifully. I must confess, the journey to falling in love with my natural afro hair has been long and hard. It took seeing how lovely my daughter’s natural hair is, to get me to transition to natural hair. But I am happy I have finally embraced it. It is very difficult to maintain my natural hair. It is quite dry and does not retain moisture easily, so I like to have it in a protective style for as long as possible, and rock my fancy wigs. But as soon as my hair grows to the desired length I am after, I would start to style it a bit more.

What do you think of these harsh chemicals in hair products?
