Despite revolutionary changes in the wig industry and in the way wigs look and feel, many misconceptions about wigs persist. Here are a few of the most common myths.MYTH #1: Wigs are hot, itchy and uncomfortable.Not true. Innovations in wig design have resulted in wigs that are lighter and more comfortable than ever before - with many of today's wigs weighing 2 oz. or less. Thinner wefts (fabric to which fibers are sewn) and lighter cap construction allows for greater air circulation. New lightweight wig fiber like WhisperLite is softer and finer, resulting in an even lighter look and feel. Other wig features provide additional comfort, like velvet bands for added softness. Many wigs are also available in sizes, which ensures that the wig will remain comfortably and securely in place.MYTH #2: Human hair wigs are better because they're more natural.One of the biggest misconceptions about wigs is that 100% human hair wigs will be more natural looking than synthetic wigs. Many women fear that "synthetic" wigs will look synthetic. This is not true! Each type of wig has its own unique benefits.Synthetic wigs come prestyled, and are the easiest to care for. For this reason, synthetic styles are most often recommended by stylists to clients undergoing treatment. Synthetic wigs also offer a variety of comfort features, including non-slip linings, lightweight fiber and multiple sizes for a secure fit.Human hair wigs, while more versatile, are not prestyled and therefore require more work. Unlike synthetic styles, these wigs can be heat-styled. They tend to weigh a bit more, and often require some trimming and customization.MYTH #3: Wigs can cause damage to the scalp and slow natural hair growth.Not true. Wearing a wig will not harm the scalp or inhibit regrowth. Many women choose to wear a wig because it can improve their mood and self-confidence. Other benefits of wig wearing include helping maintain body heat and preventing overexposure of sensitive skin to the elements.
Countless movies, stories, and tales have spun gold out of the concept of extrasensory perception (often referred to as ESP). Consider popular television shows and films like Medium and The Sixth Sense. People are fascinated with the paranormal Ouija boards and tarot card readings, once considered taboo and even somewhat dark are now popular games sold in Toys R Us. But with all this talk and publicity, much of the origin and science of "extrasensory perception" has been obscured. The actual definition of extrasensory perception is the ability to acquire information by means other than the five canonical senses (taste, sight, touch, smell, and hearing), or any other sense well-known to science (balance, proprioception, etc), but there are several different types of ESP, as well as interpretations of it.Before getting into all the different ideas and challenges associated with extrasensory perception, let's first consider the history of ESP. The concept itself goes way back, far before popular culture turned it into a cultural phenomenon of sorts. In fact, in many past cultures (i.e. ancient China and Egypt), it was simply expected that people could communicate mentally with others, including the dead, gods, and other supernatural spirits. While this possibility has been heavily criticized as, at best, speculation and at worst, pure superstition, plenty of accounts (both ancient and relatively recent) have described incidents of extrasensory perception, as well as everyday use of it for divination.So, the big question is: Do people actually have ESP and can it be proved? Many paranormal scientists have run experiments to test the veracity of alleged psychic abilities and many have come out shocked and amazed at the results. It seems that ESP may be a little more likely than anyone previously thought. In fact, some paranormal studies have found that alleged psychics seem able to foretell the contents of sealed envelopes and accurately draw images identical to those of people drawing the same image from a remote locale. Parapsychology (especially the area of extrasensory studies) has grown both in venerability and believer population. In fact, many large universities now have Parapsychology programs including Edinburgh University in Scotland.Most claims of psychic readings and abilities are similar to the three most commonly reported extrasensory happenings which include telepathy, clairvoyance, and precognition. Telepathy is defined as mental communication between two or more people. It entails one person sending or receiving thoughts to or from another person via some sort of mental or emotional link.Clairvoyance is often called a second sight or a sixth sense -- that is to say, the person perceives events happening in a location other than his or her present one, without having any previous knowledge of the event. For example, a clairvoyant person may sense that something is wrong with a friend or a family member to find that he or she was in trouble. They also may know that their house is being robbed as they are out to dinner. Precognition, on the other hand, is also known as fortune telling or foresight and entails the ability to know or predict what will happen in the future. Many prophets (including very false ones) have risen to fame and even religious worship -- through their apparent ability to predict the events of the future.

They flake. They peel. They crack. They hurt. In addition, they are about as kissable as sandpaper. Nobody wants chapped lips. But cold, dry, or windy conditions or just some bad luck in the genes department can definitely dry out and roughen up that tender and sensitive section of your face. Hence, using lip balm regularly is the best way to keep lips moist and prevent chapped lips. All lip balms, no matter what their ingredients, are, basically, a way to replace or add to the normal, moisture-retaining barrier of the skin. Lip balms functions the same way as lip-gloss, though, the former is more of a treatment and the latter is more on its cosmetic purpose.1. What Are Lip Balms?Generally, lip balms are made from menthol, scented oils, beeswax, camphor, petroleum jelly, and other different components like alum, salicylic acid, and vitamins. When buying lip balms, there are certain factors that need to be considered. There are ingredients that when present in lip balms may induce greater result and long-lasting treatment.2. Go naturalBasically, all lip balms are created for the same purpose and are definitely effective on their own ways. However, it is still important to choose lip balms that contain natural substances. This is to be sure that using lip balms will not irritate your chapped, dry lips.3. Look for the super friendly oils.When buying lip balm, it is best to buy those that contain vegetable oils like olive oil and almond oil. These particular types of vegetable oils are useful in bringing back the natural oils to the lips. Hence, you will have healthy-looking, clean, shiny lips.4. Consider the kind of lip service you want from your lip balm.Do you want to use it as an everyday alternative to lip-gloss? Are you looking for medical treatment with regards to your super dry, heavily chapped lips? Do you want to provide some sun-block protection to your lips? Or do you just want to have that super protection that you had been longing to have? Lip balm uses may vary from the everyday lip care to the super-protection lip balms.5. Consider the kind of weather you have on your place.How often should you use lip balm to prevent your lips from chapping? It depends on where you live and the time of the year. For example, if you live in Denver, the typical weather or climatic condition would be very dry and cold in the winter, and there is a lot of sun. Hence, it is important that you should use a lip balm on a daily basis, applying it a couple of times a day. If your neck of the woods is less dry, less cold, or less sunny, you may be able to use lip balm less frequently.6. Choose a lip balm with sunscreen.The lips take a solar beating just like the other areas of the face that are exposed to sunlight, but they typically do not get protection from sunscreen. That is why it experts strongly suggest using a lip balm with a sun-blocking ingredient. People, however, should be wary of using lip balms with sunscreen protection elements. Some people are sensitive to sunscreen, and their lips can become chapped because they are using it on their lips. Hence, if you notice any itching or redness, go back to a lip balm without the extra protection.7. Observe the first batch of lip balms you have boughtIt is really hard to distinguish the different ingredients in lip balms and its propensity to cure chapped lips. In fact, there are instances wherein some lip balms can even make the matter worst. And so, it is extremely important to note if a certain brand of lip balm can actually do more harm than good. If this is the case, then, it would be better to find another brand and look for the possible ingredient that could have caused the irritation. Indeed, it has been said before but it certainly bears repeating: The fastest way for a woman to update her look is by simply swiping a flattering shade of lipstick over her kisses. However, this is not possible if you have dry, chapped lips.
