How to make your hair looks healthy with Finesse Shampoo and Conditioner

I have heard of Finesse products long time ago when I was a teenager. My eldest sister used it on her hair especially the shampoo. During that time, Finesse is an imported product that you cannot buy in the regular Philippines grocery store. It is very expensive back then. Sometimes, I used it without her knowing it, please keep that as our secret.

Anyway, I am so happy that I got the chance to try the Finesse shampoo and conditioner. You can buy any Finesse products in Walgreens or Walmart at a reasonable prices.

At first, I do not like the smell of the shampoo. It is because my very first time to used it on my hair. I used it everyday and I liked the smell now. I loved the conditioner as well. It really makes your hair looks smooth, smells good and healthy.  Even my daughter used it too. She even likes how her hair feels after using the shampoo and conditioner. We both highly recommend these hair products to everybody. Finesse shampoo and conditioner restore and strengthen your hair. It moisturizes for smoothness and manageability to your hair after each used.

Cold Sore Relief Can Be Obtained

Caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV), cold sores, also called fever blisters, are small blisters around the mouth, on the lip, or on the genitals. The surrounding skin is usually swollen, red, and sore. If the blisters break open, they leak a clear fluid, normally form a scab after a few days, and usually heal within several days or up to two weeks.

How does a person get cold sores?

The virus usually enters the body through a break in the skin inside or around the mouth and is spread when someone kisses an infected person, touches a cold sore or the infected fluid or saliva, or shares eating utensils, drinking cups, silverware, towels, toothbrushes, or razors. Other factors that may bring on cold sores include genetics, allergic reactions, physical injuries, stress, diabetes, hyperthyroidism, hormonal changes, lack of sleep, and fatigue.

What are the symptoms?

They can include a fever, swollen glands in the neck, a sore throat, or pain around the mouth or lips. Lesions can also occur in the roof or floor of the mouth or inside the cheek. Some people have the virus but don’t get the actual cold sores or symptoms.

What are the treatments?

Although the sores normally heal by themselves, they can cause pain, uncomfortable symptoms, and embarrassment. Treatment with topical medications, analgesics, ointments, antibiotic creams, or pills may get rid of the sores only one or two days faster, but they can help cold sore relief and ease the symptoms.

How to reduce outbreaks and the virus spread

Wash your hands often, don’t touch the sore, avoid direct contact with people, avoid sun and wind exposure, and talk to your doctor if you continue to have a problem.

Other tips

• Wash the affected area gently with a liquid cleanser and dry with a paper towel that you can throw away.
• Rinse your mouth with mouthwash or a solution of water and salt to help soothe the sores and reduce irritation.
* Don’t eat salty foods or foods high in acid such as tomatoes, citrus fruits, and pickles as they can irritate the infection.

Cured?

Unfortunately, after infection, the virus remains in your body. HSV is one of the most common viral infections and lies dormant in the nerve when it is inactive. If you get the sores often, treatment can at least reduce the number you get and how severe they are.

How to keep your family safe during emergency

Natural disasters and emergencies can occur when they’re least expected and can cause a significant amount of damage. Many people are prone to becoming injured in natural disasters and may not have what they need on hand. For those who want to prepare for the worst, there are a few ways to prepare for the emergency.

Create a Disaster Supply Kit

There a number of supplies that you’ll need in a natural disaster, which includes water, food, and medical supplies. Stock up on the items and rotate them out each year when they become expired. You should have enough supplies to live off of for 72 hours before getting help from relief workers. Each person in your family will need one to two gallons of water each day. To prepare the food, it’s important to purchase a propane unit and cooking utensils.

Flashlights, a radio, extra batteries, and blankets are also essential to have on hand until you have access to more resources.

Receive Training

You can take CPR or first aid courses to become educated on how to assist those who are in need of medical attention in a natural disaster. You can also enroll in hazmat school, which will allow you to learn state-of-the-art medical skills while treating those who have become poisoned. You’ll also learn sanitary practices and how to protect yourself.

Set Aside Cash

It can be difficult to have money at your disposal in the event of a natural disaster due to ATMs that may be malfunctioning or banks that are not open. Get cash in small denominations if a store or establishment can’t break the cash. Have at least $100 available and store it in a place that is easy to access.

Determine Where You’ll Stay

If your home or local area is destroyed, it’s important to know where you can live temporarily. Look at local hotels that welcome pets to ensure that you can bring your dogs or cats along. You may also need to find a friend or family member’s home to stay at in an area that is in another city. Those who do not own pets can consider staying at a local Red Cross shelter.

Although you may not know when the next natural disaster will occur, there are several ways to ensure that you’re prepared. You can have a smoother time getting through the emergency while having the resources that you need available until the situation improves.
