last december 22, 2010… i took my mom to these newly opened salon because she want to had a perm as a christmas gift… this salon just opened a few moths there are no displayed product, there not much equipment and the owner is also the hair dresser, the cashier (for short she's the only employee of her salon). my coworker recommended her because they a friends. to make the story short.
my mom got a perm. I told her my mom hair is very hard to curl she might want to add some minutes to the chemical. she said that she's gonna definitely gonna add some minutes bec. my mom hairs has color so it will contrast the chemical for perm. i think she add like 5-10mins.
the result was good and then after few days my mom start loosing her hair. every time she take a shower a bunch of hair flows to the drainer, every time she use her hand just to remove the tangle "oh my" its like a hair ball of a that been took off from her hair. and before her hair is smooth and shiny but not its dry and ugly.
I paid $60 for my mom perm and $12 for my eyebrow waxing… should I complain to the salon.? and what should i say? unfortunately i lost the receipt but I printed out my bank transaction and i remember i wrote my information in her guest book. I ever she insist to help us where else can i bring this complain? coz i think she's just new in this business and have no experience
PLEASE HELP ME i fell sorry for my mom =(

LET’S HOPE no one ever needs to identify me by my dental records. I’m sure pictures of my teeth would be unique enough, but it would be a doozy of a story.
When I was growing up (and not paying the bills), our family dentist lived across the street. his name was Dr. Hurtt. I used to say the extra “t” meant he was likely to hurt a little more than others.
Many of the neighborhood kids would ride sleds down the dentist’s huge, sloping back yard. I loved that hill. then one day, I slammed into a snow drift and hit my mouth on the front of the sled, chipping my two front teeth.
My mom had me go back over to Dr. Hurtt’s and have him look at the damage. he filed them with an emery board and told me I would need caps. I also recall him suggesting I breathe less when I mentioned the pain from air hitting broken teeth.
I later learned he was a very good dentist, but that didn’t matter at the time. Priorities were different. And, candy was much more important to me then.
Up until junior high school, my visits to that office with the weird smells and scary drilling sounds were limited and usually pretty quick. But there was an old-style drug store near my new school with a nice selection of candy. I had money because of my paper route and would fill my pockets with candy every day.
You can probably imagine how angry my parents were after my next dental checkup revealed I had seven cavities. I remember they made me pay for one of the fillings. at $35 a pop, that seemed like a lot of money then.
I cut back on candy after that and brushed my teeth three times a day, but still by high school I’d already had my first root canal. after college when paying my own bills, news I would need two more root canals and crowns was not good.
Then there was the two gold crowns on molars on either side of my mouth. I was told those crowns should last forever and was looking forward to taking that bling to the grave.
But no. I learned last year the bone under one of the molars had cracked. The best option was an implant that would cost about $4,000. I elected to have that tooth removed, figuring I could still chew on my other side with the other “permanent” gold crown.
Last week, I learned that other tooth has the same problem and needs to come out. An expensive implant seems to be in my future.
The dental hygienist had some comforting words though. she said the bone problem with both my molars wasn’t related to candy – or a sled accident.

If getting your child to dress, comb her hair, and brush her teeth is a daily battle, more than inattention may be to blame. Many kids with ADHD struggle with sensory sensitivity that makes personal hygiene tasks a challenge. We asked three moms of sensitive kids to try out alternatives to the typical toothbrush.
Fuchs Natural Bristle Toothbrush
Reviewer: Vicki, mom of Ben, age eight
I bought Ben the softest toothbrushes I could find, but he still said that brushing hurt his teeth. Natural bristles are often recommended for people with soft enamel or sensitive gums, so I thought they might work for Ben. the bristles of Fuchs Natural Bristle Toothbrush do have a different feel, and they are even softer than an extra-soft nylon bristle brush. at first, Ben was put off by the natural tan color of the bristles ("this is old! somebody already used it!"), but once he tried it, he admitted that he preferred the feel of these bristles. best of all, brushing his teeth is no longer painful.
Oral-B Pulsar Vibrating Toothbrush
Reviewer: Kay, mom of Natalie, age 11
Even though she worked on brushing her teeth in occupational therapy, Natalie hated the feel and taste of a toothbrush and toothpaste, leading to many school-morning skirmishes. but when Natalie put the Oral-B Pulsar in her mouth, it was magic: Her eyes dulled and drooped, and her breathing became progressively slower. the vibration is so calming that I have to remind her to keep the brush moving! I give the toothbrush top marks. Natalie says, "Two thumbs up!"

Reviewer: Jill, mom of Emily, age nine
Emily would take only a few quick swipes at her teeth with a standard toothbrush, so I knew that she wasn’t reaching all of the tooth surfaces. the head of the Surround Toothbrush has three rows of bristles that reach the biting surface, the front, and the back of the teeth at once—making the most of every second of brush-to-tooth contact. Emily doesn’t brush any longer than before, but she’s brushing more effectively. Emily says, “I like it better than my old boring toothbrush.” That’s progress for a kid to whom brushing teeth was punishment.
I've been using a regular electric razor for about 3 months. It's always a pain to get out of the shower before school and dry off, then shave. My mom wants me to get an electric razor that I can use in the shower, so I won't have to do the above every other morning. I can't find any online that are waterproof, so I can shave in the shower. Does anyone know of any electric razors that are waterproof, so I'll be able to shave in the shower?
Thanks in advance!
i bought one at target here are some-
My mother's 67, and she's on medicare a I think, the one with more coverage.
I'm 30, I live far away, but she's saying that she's starting to get joint pain pretty much constantly, arthritis I would guess. She's one of these people who doesn't trust pharmeceuticals, doesn't want to get hooked on a pain killer, etc. I personally have a great deal of faith in medications, for instance I find Vicodin to enhance my concentration, where I know it makes others drowsy.
She just told me she's trying acupuncture, and she sits in a hot tub and/or swimming pool a coule times/wk, and she's "hoping something will provide lasting relief."
I believe the only thing she takes is ibuprofen.
I'm wondering if there's anything I should tell her to ask the Dr. for, or maybe there are other remedies. I don't want my mom to be walking around in pain! lol, thanks so much!
bengay heating cream. it heats up on contact and relaxes the muscles, relieving them of pain.
She can have tight muscles that need to be freed up to get rid of the pains. Unfortunately there aren't many who can do them. a year ago I met a gal who has MS and all her dr.'s told her that she had arthritis in her knees. I asked if she minded if I freed them up for her and she agreed to it. in less than five minutes she was up and walking around without her walker. She couldn't believe it. so you have to figure out exactly what it is she has and then find one who can help. If specalists for MS can't get it right how many other dr.'s can?
Before reading this, keep in mind that I'm very paranoid..Possibly schizophrenic.
My dental history involves me grinding my teeth in my sleep as a child. and about a year ago, I had gingivitis..The electric toothbrush made my gums bleed..So I stopped, used a regular toothbrush once a day, and so..next thing I know, I have that..thing..I'm not too comfortable talking about this..I just switched back to an electric toothbrush , and my gums are a LOT stronger..anyways, a year ago, the dcotor gave me some kind of mouthwash that'll stop the swelling of my gums..That'll cure it..
Well, I ran out..and I couldn't get a damn appointment because my mom kept telling me I had to wait six months..and it hasn't been six months yet..but, I persuaded her to get me an appointment because I wanted to see if the mouthwash helped..
Not to mention, I have a few cavities I need to get filled. So I've been using listerine mouthwash..
But just 2 weeks ago, I felt my front teeth on the top..and they're loose. They're not LOOSE LOOSE, as in..They're about to come out, and I can poke them out with my tongue..I mean, they stir a little..while my other teeth are completely still. I'm worried..I asked to get in for another appointment, and check if my teeth are okay..
Should I be slightly concerned, worried, or just plain terrified? I don't have any pain in my teeth, fortunately..but that's where it begins, says my dad..he says the instant I start to feel pain, it's too late…
I'm getting this appointment this weekend..I have to wait a week, and I'm gonna be reminding my mom everyday to make this appointment. Besides, It's sort of a win/win, right? i gotta fill my cavities anyways. but I just want to make sure I'll be okay throughout the week..I mean..Are my teeth going to fall out? is this really bad? I'm going to the dentist! will I be okay? is something bad going to happen? Am I going to have to wear dentures or something? I'm only 16 years old. I don't wanna loose my teeth..I'm scared.
….I have to admit, I am very reckless..I don't eat candy, or sugar..but..I'm just lazy..
Will I be okay? I could barely sleep last night..
Also, I should get this across, in case it helps identify the situation. I have white spots on the edges of my upper front teeth, the ones that are a little loose.. My front teeth aren't necessarily wobbily, but..I'm able to nudge them, and make them stir..
Can someone PLEASE answer me? I've posted this question two times now, and NO ONE HAS ANSWERED. and that is why I am posting this in General Health
i'm a 17 year old girl, and you've pretty just described my life for the past 3 months now.
for one, i'm so paranoid myself. everyone calls me a hypochondriac (where people think your so paranoid you start diagnosing yourself with problems)
i've been going to the dentist also, and all they've done is tell me i'm okay, and it'll pass and give me mouthwash. my front teeth are also a little weak, my gums red and sore, white edges on my gums, swollen gums…you name it, and i've got it. i only brush once a day, and use mouthwash (well ever since i got this …thing (i don't like the G word either) i've been brushing twice a day).
it just sucks, because i guess no-one can really understand what it feels like to be this scared about it, unless they have it too.
i'm probably not going to help you much by saying this, but i just had to send this.
its just real nice, in a way knowing that i'm not the only scared kid.
i hope your gums & teeth feel better soon. i can't imagine living with this much longer.
I know you've probably heard it hundreds of times before, but do not worry. From my personal history (somewhat similar to yours) my front teeth are slightly mendable, I can move them the slightest but they are secure, this could simply be a problem with the root of the teeth, the stem of which the tooth connects to your jaw, it wouldn't be that it deteriorated but it may just be naturally a bit loose, I would say not to worry about that.
