Sometimes it's tough to decide how to style curly hair. No matter the exact texture of your locks, curls can be both a blessing and a curse. Although it may seem at times to be more a curse than the former description, there are ways to work with it to make it the best thing that ever happened to you. You'll be surprised what you can do.First of all, figure out if your texture is more in the region of mega-curls or if it's more frizzy. Are your strands more like spirals and corkscrews or are they softer and more wave-like? Once you have these observations in place, you should be able to move on to the next step. Whether you're styling your strands for Prom or a day at the beach, there are lots of things you can do.

Before wearing your hair curly, there are two important things you must know. First, curly hair is often inconsistent and may not always behave. One day you might have perfect curls and then you may never be able to copy that look again. Luckily, you can make it look great even if it doesn't, always look the same. Second, curly hair needs moisture. Always avoid things that will dry out your hair such as bleach, hair dryers, and straightening and curling irons, and moisturize as much as possible. Use a moisturizing daily conditioner and use a deep conditioner every week. If the extra moisture makes your hair oily, concentrate the extra moisture away from your scalp where the oil is produced and closer to the older, dryer ends.

If your aim is something more stylish, you can use pomade or mousse to get the best results. Styling your hair in layers is very effective, it may take a little bit longer for you but it will have a good result based on the time you put into it. Styling by layers while applying pomade or mousse will create a layered effect on your hair. Do some small flips in your hair by doing this. It will create a natural effect on your hair style and it will make your look face younger.

People with curly looking hair may have unique styling problems, but you're also at an advantage. Many men and women would love to have naturally curly ones and spend hours with a curling iron or at the salon to try and achieve the look of natural curls. One of the most important things you can do for your hair is to use curly hair products that are designed specifically for your hair type. Specific shampoos, conditioners, and anti-frizz serums can be a huge benefit to your daily styling.

It is also important to remember when dealing with curly hair, that it is generally drier than straight hair. With that said, you will never want to dry your hair with a blow dryer, without a diffuser. This will flatten the curls, and usually leave a frizzy, unmanageable look. Ideally, curly hair should have a small amount of leave in conditioner, or styling product added, and dried naturally. If possible, the best way to dry it is in the natural sunlight.

Here's a hint for people with curly hair, which tends to be dry. You will notice on your shampoo bottle, it says "lather, rinse, repeat". Understand, this instruction is not for you. You do not need to repeat the shampooing process. This will only strip your hair of any natural oils, making it drier. What you want to do instead is this. Lather, rinse, condition, condition again.

A dark, angry black might also be perfect, especially if you have light, fair skin and coloring. The contrast alone will be enough to show the world your message and get them to notice you.

You also want to cut your locks short, so that they are spiky and stick up. If you have very curly hair, you will need a lot of gel to keep it from getting out of control, while for someone whose locks are very straight, the same amount of gel will be perfect to achieve the look of sticking up all over in a purposeful, messy way.

The best advice anybody can give you is that you should dress one or two levels better than the job you're gunning for. Obviously you won't be able to dress better than an executive or CEO if you going for those positions but you get the point. By dressing better than the position you have applied for you imprint a good impression of yourself to the employer and shows respect to the company and hiring manager. Not being presentable can automatically draw questions of you being lazy or a sloppy worker.

Get yourself a good haircut before an interview. This does not mean that your hair has to be cut as a "short back and sides" but it should be neat, tidy and of course clean. Most women, possibly because they tend to spend more time and money on their hair have less problems in this area than men. It is worth investing in a good pair of shoes for interviews and ensuring that they are in good repair and clean. Trainers and sandals do not tend to make a good impression at most interviews.

Men can use aftershave instead of cologne. It is much milder smelling. Be aware of other strong cosmetic smells like hair lotion or gel. Women should use their perfume moderately and apply it a good couple of hours before the interview. Don't overpower the interviewer with just applied perfume or deodorant.

Use minimal aftershave/perfume- Too much scent is a sure sign of someone who does not know how to dress for a job interview. Sure, you may love the smell of the latest CK scent, but what if the interviewer hates it? Worse still, what if they are allergic and talking to you brings them out in hives? Many interviewers find it very unprofessional to wear perfume etc to an interview, so even if they love the smell you may be downgrading yourself. You can avoid this where possible by making sure you are freshly showered before you enter the interview, so you will smell nice and clean and avoid the need for perfumes etc.

Dress shirts come in different materials, colors, and designs. White shirt is very common and probably the safest color to wear. You can wear it with any other color. Other than white, you can also choose lighter or paler colors. Match it appropriately with a color coordinated silk tie. For material, choose the cotton-based which are comfortable and doesn't wrinkle too much like linen or silk.

Once you have packed your soft skills well it is time for you to make the best physical impression. Dress well in clothes and colors that suit you (in conservative shades). Some clothes make you feel more confident than the others, so get those clothes out. Dress like a thorough professional in business clothes. Get your hair, beard, fingernails etc done. Use colognes or perfumes that are subtle and not too loud. Check your papers and leave for your interview early to avoid any unforeseen traffic delays etc. Land up at the venue early, relax and enjoy the process.

Believe it or not, some employers are actually willing to hire a less qualified applicant simply because he or she was more confident and relaxed during the interview. Calmness and confidence suggest that you're competent, that you know what you're doing and that you're comfortable in this environment. That's exactly what HR wants.

Shoes polish - This may not seem like a big deal, but it is. Employers always look for a disciplined worker to fill their vacancy. Having polished shoes is a sign that you are taking your interview seriously and that you are able to do the tasks which are given.

It is resignation time. The time has come to move on from the present job. The time to reach out for a writing pad and draft out the resignation letter. So what do you do? Should you give a list of reasons why you are leaving? Should you feel guilty about leaving your team and the organization in a lurch? Should you give a list of reasons about how badly you were treated? Should you get sentimental and list out all that you gained and how wonderful it was?

In the letter of resignation, you should thank the company for giving you the opportunity to work for them. Remember the gratitude you felt when you were hired? Try to draw upon some of this gratitude and put it in your letter. Keep it short and to the point. Include the effective date of the resignation, and when your last day at work will be. It's probably not a good idea to put your reason for resigning in the letter. If it's a message you want to convey, chances are the boss will ask you why you are leaving after he reads the letter.

The first thing you have to remember when learning how to write a resignation letter is that your message should be short.

You don't need to elaborate on the why, when, how and all the other details your employer can't be bothered with. Simply state that you wish to resign and when it is effective.

While a resignation letter should be to the point, it doesn't need to be drowning in brevity: simply writing "Peace, I'm outta here!" on a sheet of notebook paper doesn't exactly suffice. Instead, type up a letter that officially announces your departure and thanks your employer for the years - or perhaps days - you've spent working at his company. Adhere to business format and include all your contact (and future contact) information. Your employer may need to contact you at a later date.

Never use your termination letter as an opportunity to voice your gripes with your company or to "tell your employer off". If you have reached the resignation phase you should be steadfast in your decision and airing dirty laundry about your company in your letter to terminate your employment will only lead to animosity and resentment. When handing in your letter of resignation, do so with respect for your employer as well as yourself.

While you may be fed up with your company today, there was a time during your employment that you were happy. Even if this is not the case, by having been employed by the company you now wish to resign from, it will be to your advantage to express your thanks and gratitude in your notice letter. This is where some may have to dig deep and keep their comments amicable and polite but try to remember the age old saying; "If you have nothing nice to say...lie!"

Watches make a perfect giveaway for that special man in your life, on the event of birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas etc. It does not matter if the man in your life is sports loving as gone are the days when the sports watches could only be found in the plastic straps with glowing digits on the dial. In the present era, with the advancement of technology the watch manufacturing industry has been successful in their experimentation with the various materials to offer extensive material, color and style option for the watches for those who like to live close to nature or love sports.

You can use a gourmet gift basket to let the man in your life know he's number one. Baskets don't have to be frilly with ribbons on the top. In fact, most of these are quite manly. You'll find baskets that contain mugs with classic cars, tractors and of course, something that tells him he's the best in your book. Most of these baskets have snacks that include cheese bars, special coffee, nuts, candy and other treats.

If you want to surprise the man, add a hidden picture to the gift for that extra personal touch. A Personalized Photo Locket Keychain is a great, practical choice. The locket is a watch that has a space on the upper part that can hold a one inch round photo. It could be of the family, you, or left empty so they can choose what picture to place inside. This is a great twist to a timeless piece which makes it even more personalized than just the initials on the outside. Another gift with style for a man with pizzazz is Personalized Cuff Links with Photo Locket.

If you are looking to buy watches for men then consider whether they are gadgets lovers or would prefer a classic and clean looking watch design. Tissot does the T-Touch Titanium watch suitable for both women and men. It is made of Titanium, comes with compass, altimeter, thermometer, barometer and is water resistant to 30 meters.

There are also watch designs based on themes like sporting events, famous celebrities or whatever is the latest fashionable fad. If the man you are buying a watch for is a petrol head or a sports fan then you will find a number of watch designs themed on famous sporting events like the Moto GP or the Olympics. There are a huge number of sports watches on offer that also look like designer watches.

The classic watches are the typical watches that most businessmen wore. They usually come in chrome, silver, gold and platinum finishing. The designs of the watches are simple, yet it shows off the sophistication of the man who wore the watch.

It can be wore for almost every function, yet it still looks great when he is having a date with you. They tend to cost more than any other types of watch, but the investment in classic watches will repay themselves with the praises lavished by your friends and the love returned by your loved one.

The dad who has strong ties to his past will appreciate a watch that has special meaning being repaired and restored. Maybe it's a watch from his dad when he was young or a watch he inherited from his grandfather. For fine watch repair, be sure it will be guaranteed and come with a certificate. An experienced, certified watch repairer who has experience and is professionally trained should do the repair.

A croup cough is a very serious illness. It starts out as a simple cough but it requires your constant care.I had never heard of the croup until just before my son's 1st birthday. I hope my experience will help others recognize the croup cough symptoms early.

Croup Cough is a viral infection which mostly affects small children. It causes the trachea (windpipe) and larynx (voice box) to swell, which results in the harsh "barking" cough associated with croup. This cough often lasts 5 to 6 days and is more common during the winter months and early spring.

First of all, croup is most often caused by the same viruses that cause the common cold. Two kids can get the same virus, and one will get croup and the other may not. My other son has never had any symptoms of croup. Some children seem to be more prone to this illness than others. Research has shown that children born early or who have breathing problems such as asthma are more prone to getting croup.

Children most prone to Croup lie in the age group of six months and three years. They are more prone to this viral infection during the late fall, winter and early spring. The common symptoms of Croup Cough are a runny nose and a brassy cough. These symptoms generally develop about 2-6 days after being exposed to someone with croup.

The swelling of the tissue around the layers of the voice box or windpipe is called Croup. The croup results in a tight and barking cough. As the child's windpipe is narrow, it affects the breathing of the child. Though, older children and teenagers also suffer from it, the croup usually attacks infants or the children under the age of five.

There are many homeopathic medicines which will help resolve the acute symptoms of croup. But it does depend very much on where in the cycle this condition is when you start the homeopathic treatment.

One of the most frequent blood disorders our dog friends face is anemia. Anemia in itself is not a blood disease, it causes a lack of circulation of oxygen. There are two forms of this disorder, regenerative anemia where the red blood cells are reduced in number as a result of tissue destruction or chronic bleeding.

The obvious manifestation of an underlying problem in women is in their menstrual cycle. Most attribute heavy bleeding at the end of their cycle to something they have to put up with. Women suffering with these problems tend to accept it as 'par for the course', in spite of the fact that it can blight their quality of life every month and quite literally make them ill.

This article raises awareness of the types of blood disorders, the typical symptoms, their causes, potential treatment and where to go for help if you may be affected by any of the issues raised here.

Individuals who suspect that they have blood in their urine should see their health care professional, simply because of the potential for gross hematuria. The doctor will run a series of tests, including urinalysis and blood tests, kidney imaging studies, and a cystoscopic examination.

The reason for these tests is to determine whether an infection is present -- indicated by the presence of white blood cells -- or whether there are red blood cells in the urine. Excessive amounts of protein in the urine indicates kidney disease. When wastes that would normally be removed by the kidneys shows up in the blood tests, there is a possibility of kidney disease. Blood disorders, therefore, are not the only information these tests will reveal.

Well if you keep on reading, you'll find the answer to why these supposedly natural remedies don't work for everybody. So follow me in the analysis of this serious problem. And I say serious because ITP Blood Disorder is a serious condition that many times requires the removal of the spleen and strong toxic medicines such as Prednisone, Danazole and others that I prefer not to mention.

Hemophilia can range from mild to severe. The mild version is not life-threatening. However, in moderate hemophilia, patients can end up bleeding for reason at all. While severe hemophilia is also characterized by spontaneous bleeding, usually into the joints and muscles. Any form of hemophilia does not mean that the person bleeds excessively. It just means that it is a condition where the bleeding takes longer to stop which can be dangerous especially if bleeding takes place into muscles and joints.

Asthma is a disease of the lungs that affects your breathing. It is a disease in which a person's airways become inflamed, swollen, and narrowed, making it difficult for air to flow into and out of the lungs. The condition marked by chronic inflammation and irritation of the airways. Asthma is a chronic inflammation of the bronchial tubes and lungs. This causes the air passages to narrow periodically resulting in breathing difficulties.
Snoring could be very embarrassing especially when we don't sleep alone and each morning would have to wake up to face a league of angered roommates or spouse. The singular thought of how we deprived others of sleep could be very frustrating. If you snore or get reports from those you share the same room that you snore, you would want to get immediate help to avoid future occurrence.

Alcohol abuse treatment is subjective to an individual's craving for and intake of alcohol. What starts as a party indulgence can turn into abuse ending in isolation, violent behavior or suicidal tendencies. An effective way to deal with this poison is to communicate with the concerned person or consult support groups, a medical doctor or family member.

Alcohol is in itself a welcome drink but when teamed with drugs, assumes gargantuan proportions. One offshoot of drug and alcohol abuse is domestic violence when, under influence of spirits, a man turns batterer unconsciously or, as in certain cases, purposely.

Alcohol is often used as a cover for low self-esteem or guilt for hurting loved ones. Sometimes it is an excuse made for the purpose of escaping consequences. Domestic violence can take the forms of humiliation, degradation, terrorizing or threats.

There are many options available to an alcohol abusive drinker, who is looking for means to deal with this problem. There is no dearth of good and reasonable rehab centers, located all over the country. Many hospitals and nursing homes even offer Residential Alcohol Abuse Programs.

What gives a residential program that slight edge over other treatment programs is the round the clock care and supervision that it offers. It provides food, lodging, rehabilitation, training, education and treatment, outside a person's own home. These programs are useful for those who lack a stable home environment. In some of the American states, such programs are supported by public funds.

The effects of alcohol abuse can be quite devastating, if it is consumed in large quantities. Unfortunately the social sanction that consumption of alcohol has in most parts of the world partly obscures the danger that it can pose to society. Putting that aside though, alcohol consumption is also fueled by its association with fun, a sense of freedom and a spirit of adventure.

For centuries, alcohol has been used by nearly every civilization. Recorded history is filled with examples of people using alcohol. The stark reality is that for as long as people have been using alcohol, they have been suffering fro alcohol abuse effects.

What starts as an occasional drink with friends can soon turn into an addiction, casting the alcohol addict in serious trouble. At this stage, the addict's day could often begin and end with alcohol and soon he could turn moody or violent, overreacting to issues and situations.
There are several different alternative treatment strategies for individuals that have epilepsy. Doctors commonly prescribe medications in order to cope with the symptoms associated with epilepsy, such as the seizures that naturally occur on a regular basis.

Menstrual cycles go out of whack because of the hormonal imbalance that causes PCOS. Before eggs become mature enough to be released, they grow inside little sacs or cysts. During every cycle, the ovaries start preparing 20 eggs a month for maturation.

However, women with PCOS do not have enough estrogen to make one egg dominant.

That way, if you have an attack, you will know exactly what to do.

Evidently numerous things can cause panic attacks and often the real cause is a complex combination of factors. This meant that treating the symptoms of my anxiety would require a multilayered approach and take a little while.
