Question from Tiffany:
Do over the counter color shampoos really work?
Beauty Squad Answer:
Color shampoos can be beneficial if you know which one to use for your particular hair type. Color shampoos are just shampoo with pigment added which coats the hair temporarily and can enhance the life of the color if used properly, however, if the wrong color shampoo is used it can have the opposite efect, causing the color to dull and loose shine. If a cool brown shampoo is used where a warm brown is called for, then the result will be in neutralizing the color and making it dull-similarly for blondes. If a golden blonde shampoo is needed and a violet blonde shampoo is used, this will cause the hair to dull and appear gray. If a violet is needed and a golden shampoo is used, this will make the hair appear more brassy, similarly for cool red and warm red shampoos.
The BEST way to deal with this is to get a color shampoo recommendation from a professional colorist, EVEN BETTER is to get a COLOR EHHANCING glaze at the salon, this will be mixed by a professional to your specific needs and usually include a shine enhancing product. A color glaze also has a life expactncy of approx 4 weeks. Color shampoos are very temporary even when used correctly!

A Minnesota mom six months pregnant getting ready to head home from a trip to New York with her 6-year-old daughter was arrested last week for an unloaded handgun she had in the luggage she was attempting to check.
According to WDAY, Beth Arneson Ferrizzi had no trouble transporting the gun from her departure city — Fargo, North Dakota — as she called Delta to make sure she was following the correct protocol. But she encountered problems as she tried to return home out of La Guardia International Airport, after a trip meeting her husband while he was on leave from Honduras where he is stationed for a year as master sergeant serving in the Air Force.
“They said that the firearm had to unloaded and in a hard-sided, locked case,” Ferrizzi said of Delta’s instructions. “The ammunition had to be stored separated. Not separate from the gun but in either it’s original packaging or some sort of a container that kept the bullets from being in contact with each other.”
At La Guardia, when the airline discovered Ferrizzi had both ammunition and the handgun, they phoned Port Authority Police who handcuffed, arrested and took Ferrizzi to jail. Inforum reported that Ferrizzi’s 6-year-old was transported in a separate unmarked police car.
“I went to the Delta counter and declared that I had an unloaded firearm in a locked case inside my bag I wanted to check. Upon hearing this, the Delta agent called the Port Authority Police,” Ferrizzi wrote in a Facebook post, noting that she and her daughter were treated well during her time of arrest by authorities.
The 29-year-0ld mother has been charged with a felony for criminal possession of a loaded firearm, which could come with up to 15 years in prison if convicted.
The issue Ferrizzi said was a “breakdown in communication” that confused her about the differences in state law when it came to transporting a firearm. On Delta’s website, it states that it is the passenger’s responsibility to know the Federal, State and local laws regarding the transport of firearms. The TSA’s regulations regarding checking a firearm are similar to that on Delta’s website as well.
A quick search on the Web reveals that it’s not exactly easy to figure out what the rules are for transporting a firearm out of New York in checked baggage. The New York and New Jersey Port Authority website simply states that passengers should be aware of the laws and directs them to New York or New Jersey state police websites. New York’s firearms section of its website doesn’t mention how a passenger can legally check a gun either.
It turns out, according to WDAY that although Ferrizzi’s transport of the handgun was perfectly legal out of North Dakota, in New York the firearm is considered loaded if the passenger is in possession of both a gun and ammunition.
Ferrizzi now has a court date set in Queens in May for this Class “C” Felony, which is right around the time she is expected to deliver her child.
“It should not be normal that somebody who is attempting to do everything right is charged with a felony crime,” Ferrizzi said, according to Inforum.
Turning to the Fargo airport, where Ferrizzi was legally able to transport her gun, Inforum reported Executive Director Shawn Dobberstein saying “this is a common occurrence in New York Port Authorities.”
The website for the Law Office of Martin D. Kane in New York too seems to highlight the frequent nature of such charges coming from airports within New York.
“So why are you reading this website? You’re an honest citizen who followed all the rules. When you left AnyTown, USA Airport, you were treated respectfully when you made your firearm declaration. Your luggage, with the TSA lockbox, was inspected and cheerfully accepted for your flight to JFK or LaGuardia and you had no problem retrieving your luggage in New York,” Kane’s website states. “But when you came to the airport to return home and followed the same approved procedure, all hell broke loose. You were arrested, spent several hours or overnight in custody, appeared before a judge where the DA asked for humongous bail, and you were finally released and told to come back with a lawyer. Now you’re scared and fighting mad at the same time. What’s going on?”
Helen Peterson, spokesperson for the Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown, told Inforum too that those unfamiliar with the laws causes issues several times a year.
“Unless you have a New York City license to carry, leave your gun at home,” Peterson advised travelers, according to Inforum.
Regardless, Ferrizzi wrote on Facebook that she feels the situation she and her family have now been exposed to is wrong.
“I agree with gun laws to decrease violent crimes. I do my best to set a good example for my daughter and to be a law abiding citizen. I am from a family who is involved in the community, my mother is a retired teacher and my father owns a small business,” she wrote. [...] I was misinformed. Crimes should be judged on a case by case basis, and what is happening to me and my family is wrong.”

1. Try to figure out why you are in such a hurry. For example: waiting for an important party to start! We tend to lose our patience when we're multitasking or when we're on a tight schedule, expecting the day to pass within only a few short minutes of busyness and chaos.
2. Pinpoint the triggers that often influence you to lose your patience. For example: When you are not doing anything! Impatience creeps in insidiously, and if you feel anxious, worried, or unhappy you may not even realize that the underlying cause of these feelings is impatience. To reduce the frequency of impatience, it helps to be aware of it.
3. Look for patterns. Being aware of your impatience also gives you a chance to learn from it and perhaps uncover a relationship or circumstance that is simply not healthy or constructive, and that you may have the power to change. Figure that out, and you can then think logically about the problem issue and decide whether or not your impatience is warranted or helpful. It usually isn't, but when it is you can then figure out ways to fix the root problem rather than simply feeling stressed about it.
4. Keep a journal. For one to two weeks, whenever you get that rushed feeling and the sense of impatience, write down whatever it is that feeling is associated with (Example: July 1 - astronomy class). Make sure that you take notes consistently and consecutively each time the feeling occurs.
5. Overcome bouts of impatience. In the long run, developing patience requires a change in your attitude about life, but you can immediately make progress by learning to relaxwhenever you feel impatient. Take a few deep breaths and just try to clear your mind.Concentrate on breathing and you'll be able to get your bearings.
6. Let go if you can't do anything about the impatience trigger. If there isn't anything that you can do to resolve whatever has triggered your impatience, just let it go. Easier said than done, yes, but it's possible, and it's the only healthy thing to do.
7. Always have a positive outlook in life. Being always positive is very imperative as possessing a sense of patience. Remember that life is not a race, but a journey to be savored each step of the way.
Today, it's all about your pretty faces!:
Question from Ginger:
I get really plugged up pores on the outside of my nostrils which makes me really self-conscious. It looks like little white, oily plugs in my pores. So gross!How can I get rid of them FOREVER? I've tried Biore pore strips but a couple days later I get that build-up again. Please help! Thank you!!
Beauty Squad Answer:
The bad news is you can't get rid of them FOREVER but the good news is there is lots to do to improve your clogged pores! Retin A is the most helpful in this situation because it actually helps drive the contents of the pore up and out! You will need a prescription for this! Keep your face free of heavy clogging make-up and creams because they only aggravate the clogging and prevent the pore from releasing its contents. A Clarisonic brush can aid in loosening the clogged debris and having medical grade extraction is also quite helpful!
Good luck and remember sun tanning only makes it worse!
Question from Linda:
Blush!!Ugg This is the hardest beauty product to find that looks natural without looking fake and clownish. Is there a universal color that looks good on every skin tone? I have medium color skin with yellow undertones?
Any recommendations would be helpful.
Beauty Squad Answer:
Blush can be tricky, but sticking to a few rules of thumb can help make the color choice and application a bit easier.
Try choosing a product with a sheer creamy texture, smile :) and apply on the apples of the cheeks with sponge or ring finger.
Ladyblush cream blush from MAC with its soft neutral pink tone might work for you. Apply only around the apple area of the cheek, bringing it up to the cheekbone is a common mistake.
To answer your second question, I don't think there is one color that truly looks good on everyone, but there are definitely a few popular choices out there that many skin tones seem to choose. Colors like "orgasm" from NARS is a peachy pink with a hint of shimmer that everyone seems to love.
Mole just pulled a Lassie. The mixed-breed dog was out for a walk with his owner on a California trail when he began acting strangely yesterday. Mole "kept on tugging at my pant and whining, pulling me," Ramon Llamas tells Fox 11. The source of the commotion: something was trapped in a crevice between two boulders. "I see his big eyes and his face; I thought it was a bear," Llamas says. After he and some fellow hikers called 911, they discovered that the "animal" in the hole was in fact a man.
