How to Really Get on Top Of Dandruff

dandruff-hair-brushIt’s important to understand what Dandruff really is, and it’s causes before you can really treat it effectively. If not you will only end up treating the symptoms and not the cause which can put you on a never ending cycle of frustration. The best dandruff treatment you can make is getting to the root of the problem and treating that rather than just the symptoms.

Dandruff is commonly known as flaking dead skin. When we have dandruff our dead skin cell replacement cycle has been hastened which invariably results in more flaking skin at any one time.

They’re for everyone and when done right can be quite the fashion statement.

Picking the Perfect Wedding Dress

Regardless of your age, young or mature – picking the right wedding dress is never an easy process. There’s the issue of selecting something you really like as opposed to picking the dress that reflects you and suits your body type best. While the engagement ring is the single most noticeable item leading up to the wedding the dress is something your future photos will feature your wedding dress and the the focal point of your photos from a fashion point of view.


Younger and More Mature Dress Styles

Most younger brides who may not have been in formal dress perhaps as much as a more mature bride generally don’t have years of self styling to fall back on when choosing a wedding dress. As a result they will often choose the dress they ‘fall in love with’ as far as the dress design is concerned and not the dress that makes them look great.

Other times you might notice the younger bride might alter her own personal style a little too much on the big day by choosing a dress that is not reflective of her personality and choosing a hair style too far removed from their normal look. A mature bride will often have a more assured style that becomes a part of their dress sense no matter the occasion, formal or informal. It’s important especially at a more mature age that your personality is a big part of your style on your wedding day.

Less is often more for the mature bride. They will often shun excessive accessories and opt for something more simple to accompany the rest of their attire. The dress itself may be a silhouette gown or calf length dress and will take on more of an elegant appeal than the the traditional wedding dress. Another advantage is this is often far more comfortable than the long flowing white dress and veil that a younger bride will generally choose to wear.

A Beginners Guide to Diamonds

diamond engagement ring

Diamonds are a gal’s best friend but can quickly turn to enemy if you pay too much.

Buying a diamond ring can often represent an important and exciting event in your life such as in the case of a diamond engagement ring. Diamonds are known to be quite expensive and as a result it’s a decision that you need to take great care with.

Most people, especially those unfamiliar with purchasing gemstones of any kind find buying diamonds quite a complicated process. They may be completely unaware of what actually represents good value and what they should avoid and they may also feel overwhelmed by choice. This article will attempt to shed some light on how to properly buy a diamond and what you should take into consideration.

The Main Characteristics of a Diamond

As you may be aware, diamond value is based upon the 4 c’s:

  • Clarity
  • Cut
  • Color
  • Carat Weight

These 4 determining factors may taken on a different level of importance depending on the individuals personal preferences. For example carat weight may be the most important factor if you desire a large diamond whereas some may prefer a diamond with a quality cut which allows the diamond to reflect light and display a brilliance or luminosity that many of us find so appealing.

  • Clarity is also an important consideration as it is an indication of the level of flawlessness of a diamond. Diamonds with visible flaws will be of far less value than those flaws that can only be seen under magnification.
  • Carat weight refers to the actual weight of the diamond. Diamonds over 1 carat weight will generally come with a certificate of authenticity.
  • Color refers to the lack of color the diamond has. You should always view diamonds on a white background to accurately gauge how close the color of the diamond is to the white background which would indicate a colorless diamond.
