I'll be swimming everyday now for swim team. I was wondering, what shampoo's can I use to protect my already dry/damaged hair from clhorine? I've tried Garnier Fruites, Treseme, and Pantene and non of them work. I'll rate :) (link)
try a looking for a shampoo that is especially made for swimmers. im a swimmer too so i have the same problem. i think loreal has a brand that is for swimmers. they have a bunch out there. http://www.kiefer.com/Kiefer/dept.asp?dept%5Fid=203&gift=False&0=dept%2Easp%2Cdept%5Fid%3D88%26Tree%3D%2CCompetitive%20Swim&1=dept%2Easp%2Cdept%5Fid%3D4%26menu%5Fid%3D%26Tree%3D0%2CSwimmer%27s%20Gear&mscssid=080B8ABB672F4D34A87F6EDD74A18CC3 they have a bunch on this website at keifers and you might be able to find some of these at a regular store too. good luck

Last year I dyed my hair black and i've kept it black since then. I am now trying to get my hair back to a more natural color: dark brown-light brown. I tried Herbal Essences Dye.. It was called Iced Bronze or something like that.
It just dyed my roots brown and make the black in my hair a really odd color.

If anyone knows a good brand and/or color of dye that will completely cover black, let me know!!
Thanks a BUNCH! (link)
i think loreal (sp) works. or it might be best just to go to a salon and get it done.

Ok I'm 13/F . I will be starting a competative swim team tomorrow morning and it will last all summer. I will have practices 1 hour for 3 days a week and a swim meet (competion) every Thursday for 3 hours. My question is, can I expect to lose a few unwanted inches on my stomach, thighs and legs with all this swimming? (Im hoping maybe 2 maybe 3 in on thighs, 1 or 2 on stomach an 1 or 2 on arms) I'll rate!! :) thanx! (link)
im in swimming too but mwe have much longer practices than you. i have it five days a week...three days for 1 1/2 hours and two for 2 hours. and at swim meets you bearly swim at all so taht doesnt count. you might lose you tummy a little but as i said for just 3 hours a week it depends. if your coach gives you hard sets than yes you will lose more inches but not as many if you practiced for a longer period of time. just work hard and most likely you will get results. also it will definatly give you better thighs and legs. you can tell if it has made a difference by walking and looking to see if you muscules move on the outer side of your legs.

I have some minor acne on my face, its so really bad, but its on the back of my shoulders too. & its really irritating, I use that Clean & Clear stuff, but that dosen't seem to work to weel, & I had this percriptioned stuff that worked very well, but it ran out, & so I'm going back to the dermatologist soon. But what are the ways I can clear it up as fast as I can?

Thanks

use proactive. it works really well and you can use it anywhere on your body (ex. your back and your arms, etc.)

ok, I'm about 5'2 & weaigh 115. & I'm 14/M

well, I want to have abs, just like a 6 pack, & my stomach be flat (I'm strested & thats where it goes). & I wanted to know a diet & a work-out routine that would work.

Thanks So Much! (link)
going on a "diet" wont work because if you cut off all your sweets (im using sweets as and example" then you body will adjust to that calorie intake so your metabolism will slow up. just watch what you eat a little and try doing crunches. i do 500 a day so it would definatly work for you too. good luck!

Ever heard of Proactiv? Does it work? Where can you get it? (link)
yea proactive works really well. just go to www.proactive.com

this is so typical it kills me.....

i have liked this guy for the whole school year, we became really good friends and he found out i liked him and it brought us closer.. then he liked someone else. she broke his heart and now he hates her.. we became friends again and i thought things were going in the right direction and now i just find out my friend likes him and she didnt tell me , when she knows i have liked him for a long time (supposedly shes like him this long too) and now he has a "crush" on her, but he doesnt like her.. i dont understand..

what should i do?

thanks (link)
flirt with him and do everything you can to get his attention i guess. mess around and get together with him after school or something.

wow i've been asking so many questions about ipods.. lol anyway.. i have all my songs on limewire but how do i get them on my ipod? people are like use media player or real one player but how do i transfer my songs from limewire to one of them? (link)
you cant. itunes will only let you download songs or import a CD. you can burn those songs to a disk and then load it onto itunes. thats the only way it will work.

I like somone older than me and its a little wierd. I like that person and i dont know if that person would feel comfortable going out with me tho. I dont know if that person likes me or not but if that person did, put ur self in my shoes, would u go out with that person? I thought it was wierd liking someone 2 years older but since i started to like that person it doesnt bother me! (link)
mk your confusing me but i'll try my best to answer. it doesnt matter if they are older than you. if i was in your shoes and he asked me out then i would say yes, if i liked him then OBVIOUSLY i would say yes. and if he does like you..all the better to ya. and it shouldnt bother that hes older than you. if you like someone then you cant help it. i went out with a 14 year old once. that didnt bother me.

these girls are being really mean. they say things behind my back and stuff and even though im not friends with them i still dont like it. it really sucks because it hurts me. they are all like "we are saying how we feel" but really, they are being just plain mean. and i have asked them to stop but they keep doing it!
HELP!
(link)
i hate it when that happens. ppl just need to get some lives. they have no right to pick onyou. you most likely have something they want. next time they say something tell them to stop...again....but if it still continues tell a teacher or a guidense(sp) counseler(sp). "we are saying how we feel"- thats bs....you cant always speak what you want all the time especially if it is or purposfully said to hurt someone. hope i helped

I have no idea whose column this is. I saw this in my friend's favorite advice sites. So I'll ask you. There's this girl at my school, Natalie Drotar, real b****. Okay, she always bumps into me and doesn't say sorry and thinks shes so cool cause she went out with 'Chris Schavichiio' or whatever his name is. She is being a real bother. What should I do!? (link)
nice going!! this is natalie and im GOING to find out who had the balls to put this in my column. u no it was my advice column. you are so stupid to even fuckin say "i dont no whos advice column this is" thats my first clue smarts! i dont ever bump into ppl and if i do i do say sry. and second of all i never acted "kool" cuz i went out with chris. thats a buch of bull shit. and guess what....you are bull shit. have a nice life and back the f*** off.

~natt~


well i just want to know if u think that this guy might like me. When ever we hang out he`s always so nice to me and he like opens the door for me and when ever i need something he`ll get it for me. It doesnt seem like he does this with anyone else, but i dont know for sure. Also he talks to me online and waves to me when i leave and stuff like that. It just seems like he doesnt really do that to anyone else. Also he looks at me sometimes and i look at him too. Do you think there could be a posability that he might like me? please be honest! (link)
he might like you. if he flirts then yea he does. maybe hes just trying to be a closer friends with you. its really hard to understand guyys. those are my experiences so yea

my best friend and i seem to be falling apart. her life is a dream. i know that she has imperfections.. but she knows that everyone envy's her. she has a boyfriend, and my other friends are being asked out all the time.. and i feel like an alien. i am so ugly.. and not to mention fat. i was invited to a party for this weekend, but i didnt go cause it was a pool party. i didnt want to be seen looking like.. me. i have the love handle things that roll over my pants, and i have pimples and am ugly. what can i do to become more self confident? (link)
my best advice is to stop comparing yourself to other people. You were made for who you are and who you are supposed to be. you have more perfections than you do imperfections.

My family beats me, badly. I have bruises all over my arm cause my mom got mad at me cause I took the bathroom when she had to go.. strange right? And it hurts to type. Should I tell? My parents rarely do it.. so I don't want them to go to jail for occansional things. WHAT SHOULD I DO!? (link)
next time it happens ge t help from a school counseler or something. they would know what to do. dont go to the police yourself. the people at school will take care of it. hope everything works out good!

My girlfriend is a quite beautiful girl. And I know she knows she's beautiful. She's also pretty damn confident. But, for some reason it seems like she's insecure around me. Every time we're intimate and I try to slid my hand down her stomach she sucks it in. I guess she doesn't think I notice but, I do. She has a fine, flat tummy so why she feels the need to suck it in is beyond me. I also don't understand if I did anything to make her feel insecure. I tell her that I think she's beautiful every chance I get. I don't know what to do here. (link)
most girls feel that way. your opinion might be that she is beautiful and skinny but her opinion might be she is fatt. ppl think that way because they compare themsleves to ppl who they think are "better" than themselves. ex: models, actresses. They pick out their imperfections and make themselves feel worse. i know i do it all the time.most of the time you cant change their opinion. hope i helped
