Does Nioxin Really Work?

At the recommendation of my hair stylist during an appointment in February of 2008, I decided to give the Nioxin scalp treatment shampoo, hair-treatment system a try. As a 47-year old male, I am fortunate in that I still do have most of my hair. However, as I’ve gotten older, it has become increasingly more difficult to wear the same hair style I did in my younger years, without showing a great deal more of bare scalp along the top sides of my forehead.  As I pointed this out to my hair stylist, she quickly asked me. What kind of Shampoo do you use? I said, Crew.  She asked, have you tried, Nioxin?  Many of my customers have had great luck with Nioxin Shampoo. I said, “what the heck, For $30, it’s worth a one-time shot.”  For $29.95 I got what’s known as the Nioxin System 1 Starter Kit, consisting of 3 different Nioxin scalp treatment: Nioxin Hair Cleanser (Shampoo),  Nioxin Scalp Therapy (Conditioner) and Nioxin Scalp Treatment(Styling Foam)

I started out with a fairly short hair-cut: Number-3 Clippers on the sides, and about 1-Inch of bangs on top. I was warned by my stylist that the application of the Nioxin therapy and treatment would make my scalp tingle, but it did no such thing, despite the fact I applied generous amounts and rubbed it into my scalp quite thoroughly. I will say that it made my hair feel very clean and silky, but no tingling sensation. (I really did get this tingling sensation when I began using the mint-scented Crew Conditioner – and I even believe that it helped restore some thickness to my hair) Later that day, my wife discovered the first drawback of this product with her nose. The scalp treatment styling foam, she claims, makes my hair smell very musty. She did not like the odor at all. This is surprising, because I’m usually the one with the sensitive nose, but I never noticed a musty odor. In fact, most of what I read on this product described it as having a very pleasant aroma.  Strange. I think it smells like a scalp med.

What Do Nioxin Reviews Say?

I continued to use the Nioxin Scalp Treatment consistently for the next 8 weeks, musty odor and all. Okay, I cheated a few times, and didn’t always use the bad-smelling, Nioxin styling foam, just so I could remain in the same house with my wife. At any rate, we both agreed that though my hair looked nice and clean, there was no noticeable difference in fullness or thickness. If I remember right, the box gives some user satisfaction ratings which suggest that 87% of all Nioxin Reviews reported some noticeable benefits in hair thickness or fullness. I guess I am among the small percentage that did not. I should point out, that the makers of Nioxin do not claim their products actually grow new hair as do medicinal treatments and scalp meds such as Minoxidil. Instead, they boast that it makes a healthier scalp which in turn can produce healthier hair which may appear fuller or thicker. I noticed these benefits when I tried Crew Shampoo for the first time a few years back.

Does Nioxin Scalp Treatment Really Work?

The Nioxin scalp treatment System 1 Starter Kit seems to be a very good shampoo, and conditioner, but did not give my wife or myself the impression that my hair was any thicker. If not for the musty smell, I really did like the Nioxin styling foam. I will probably look for a foam with similar texture and aroma my wife can tolerate. Unlike other products, this one cannot be rated with numbers. It either works or it doesn’t.  In my case, it didn’t. There are other good shampoos and conditioners on the market like American Crew for Men, that are 50% cheaper. I will stick with Crew, save money, and be thankful for what hair I have.  I do have a theory on why so many people believe this product promotes some sort of visible improvement in their hair growth: It has to do when the product is purchased. I would estimate that most frequently, this product is purchased by the recommendation of a hair stylist during a visit to the hair stylist. Naturally, this is when one’s hair is shortest and thinnest, which coincides with when the product is first used. While the user begins using the Nioxin System 1, their hair begins to naturally grow longer and appear thicker as it normally would. The user says, ‘hey..it really works’, but in reality his hair just grew like it normally does on its own. After a few more haircuts, and dollars spent on Nioxin Shampoo, my guess is that most users would gradually learn that the product is not really doing what they thought it did in the first place…or maybe not? …

Nioxin Reviews Epilogue6 months later
Well, heh heh.. Months later, and I’m really thinking this Nioxin shampoo may have done some good, after all. Even my wife has been saying, my hair looks thicker and fuller. For $30.00, it’s worth buying Nioxin Shampoo at least once. As of this update there are eight different products considered in the Nioxin Reviews.

Best Probiotic | Reuteri

What is Acidophilus or Probiotics?

Years ago, I discovered a great little secret for keeping your stomach feeling healthy and happy: Probiotics, otherwise known as acidophilus, are known as the ‘good or friendly’ bacteria that aid the immune and digestive system. Unlike antibiotics, which kill bacteria in your body, Probiotics actually colonize your body with these friendly or good bacteria, such as Lactobacillus or Bifidus-Regularis.

 

Why take Probiotics Acidophilus?

One reason is that you’ve recently taken antibiotics for an infection. Antibiotics, which kill infectious bacteria, can also deplete the body of the bacteria that’s good for your immune system. If you’ve ever had an upset stomach while taking antibiotics, this is probably what caused it. While Yogurt has been a long-time, natural way of filling your stomach with millions of these beneficial bacteria, probiotics offer a much more powerful way. The top brands on the market claim to provide, not millions, but billions of the helpful and effective bacterial agents found in Yogurt. I can claim, first-hand that they really work, but not all brands are created equal. I tried several before discovering one that seems to trump all the others.

 

What is the Best Probiotics Formula?

About 4 years ago, a Sales Rep at the vitamin cottage recommended Reuteri, by Nature’s Way. You can find it in the refrigerated section of supplements at any good vitamin and health store. For treating most common stomach ailments; IBS, Diarrhea, Constipation, bloating, gas, etc., Reuteri is remarkable. Back when I first tried Reuteri, I was going through a particularly rough time with my digestive system. After several months of this, I actually visited my doctor and had some blood tests done. Though nothing was found, my doctor referred me to a Gastroenterologist for further testing. About a week before my appointment, I was visiting my local Vitamin Cottage, when the thought struck me that I should try Probiotics or acidophilus again to see if it helps. But there are so many brands. Which one would be best? I happened to ask an extremely knowledgeable sales rep, who led me to a refrigerated section of the store, and picked up a bottle of the Reuteri, and said, “This stuff is really amazing”. He recommended starting out with 1 capsule a day, and increasing it to two and even three, after a period of a week. Upon checking out at the cash register, the woman who rang me up, gave her very own endorsement of the product as well. I started taking the Reuteri about a week before my GI appointment. Believe it or not, by the time the appointment I visited the doctor, my symptoms were 90% gone – and this was after several months of problems. The doctor diagnosed me with IBS, and said to keep up with the Probiotics. I replied, ‘not just any Probiotics – Reuteri’!

That was four years ago, and since, then I have never had any long-term problems. When I feel my system acting up, I simply increase my dosage by a pill or two, and it works! Whether you are suffering from IBS, problems with diarrhea, constipation, bloating or even nauseousness, I guarantee that Reuteri will help you.

I should also mention that the price of this product has nearly doubled since I purchased my first bottle. That is testimony to the fact it really works! I have recommended this product to many other friends, co-workers, customers, family members, etc., and have yet to find someone who told me it didn’t help them. Give Reuteri a try – you won’t regret it.

Absolute Beginners Guide to Computer Basics

Need Help with your Computer?
Need Help with your Computer?

 

Absolute Beginners Guide to Computer Basics is just what any non-computer-savy kind of guy is probably looking for.

If you’re not happy with the computer service you are getting, you are not alone. Recent customer-satisfaction surveys reveals that 9 out of 10 users confess the desire to hang their computer technician with a floppy cable.  Worse yet, 90% of those surveyed are doing their own computer service.  Simply put, this means that 81% of all computer users are at risk of committing suicide.  You would think there is a better way to solve computer problems than killing yourself.  You would think the government would provide Free Online Training. You would think, at the very least they could recommend a book on computer basics. Well, as luck has it, I have some good news: One, it is unlikely your computer even has a floppy cable. Two, if it did, it is even less likely you could find it.  You’re a complete moron when it comes to understanding computers, remember?  That is why we’re talking about this, in the first place. Now, that we’ve ruled out suicide as a possibility, don’t despair – there is another option, and no it doesn’t involve hiring a computer technician teaching you where to find cables for hanging him when things go wrong.  So much of the time, computer difficulties are due to user error rather than anything that’s actually inside the computer designed to make your life difficult. No offense, but it’s pretty obvious you need some help – in the form of, actually learning to use your computer, so you’re not thinking it’s broken all the time. You need some Free Online Training or a book that covers the Computer Basics. If you’re looking into expensive online computer training or online computer classes, I’ve got a very simple recommendation, in the form of a very good book: Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Computer Basics

Computer Basics
Computer Basics

(4th Paperback edition), by Michael Miller. This book will tell you everything you need to know about Desktop and Notebook PCs. It will help with setting up your PC, and actually provide the essential knowledge on using Windows XP, as well as the latest Vista OS by Microsoft. It seems that some books fail to actually instruct you on accomplishing the tasks you expect to do on your PC. The Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Computers Basics will help you with things such as setting up and using MP3 players, downloading and playing music and videos, burning CDs, DVDs. Author, Michael Miller, also helps you with socializing on your PC through personal websites, messaging, email, etc. The book is literally full of good, practical advice for training you and helping you become more productive on your PC or Laptop. Fortunately, author, Michael Miller, does not include much technical hardware training, such as how and where to find a floppy cable. There is no better way to learn how without killing yourself.

2005 Pontiac G6 Review

2005 Pontiac G6
2005 Pontiac G6

Pontiac G6 Review

Three years ago, I opted for a 2005 Pontiac G6,  after test-driving a 2005 Honda Accord. I chose this car for it’s V6 performance and features not found in the 4-Cyl Accord at the cost of the 2005 Pontiac G6.  Also, the looks were far more appealing to me than the Accord and many of the other cars in this class. I thought I’d share my impressions of the car after driving one for the past 3 years. I leased the Base V6 2005 Pontiac G6 after test driving a 4 Cylinder Accord EX. The V6 gives you smoother, better acceleration than an Accord 4-Cyl, and also equal, if not better equipment for the same price.  In fact, with GM incentives, my lease payment was significantly lower than it would have been on the Accord. I bought this car in 2005, when it was first introduced. The car has been reliable, but not without minor glitches.The dashboard creeks and cracks, and despite GM’s recommended fix, has never been resolved.  In fact, if not for the Pontiac G6 Forum, I would not have even known about this fix. I’m sure this problem has been resolved with the 2006 Pontiac G6, 2007 Pontiac G6 and 2008 models, as well as the Pontiac G6 Coupe. Aside from this, the car would be relatively quiet, if not for annoying wind noise in the driver’s side window. That too, was never resolved, despite two trips to the dealer. The rear visibility leaves something to be desired, and the wide front pillars are a hazard when pulling out on a busy street. The 2005 Pontiac G6 has nice amenities for a car at this price, especially the trip computer and remote ignition, but my jaw fell out when I took it home and learned it did not come with ABS! I thoroughly scoured the very extensive Pontiac G6 owners manual just to be sure. With so many features; trip computer, remote ignition… but no ABS? Be warned, this was not a standard safety feature in the 2005 Pontiac G6.  I believe this has been changed with the 2006 Pontiac G6.

V6 Performance

What attracted me to the car was the smooth acceleration of the V6 engine and the sporty look and feel, compared to the somewhat drab-looking 2005 Accord. The handling, I feel, is underrated for a car in the $20K price range.  It grabs the road and tracks quite well,  while giving you a very comfortable ride. I recommend this car only in the Base model. The extra money for the Pontiac GT brings it up in the price range of other, more refined V6 cars like the Accord, Maxima or Camry. The Highway Gas mileage is among the best I’ve ever had in a V6.  Depending on the levelness of the road, I’ve gotten anywhere between 30 and 34 MPG on the highway! Not nearly as impressive in the city (around 18 or 19MPG), and combined around 23-25. Interesting, how there is such a difference between City and HWY mileage. After 3.5 years, there has not been a mechanical problem, other than needing new front and rear brakes. A good, but not great car. I put 85 Octane gas in it because I’ve noticed literally no improvements or benefits in paying more for 87 or 91. In fact, the fuel economy seems to do better with 85.The G6 is a nice car to drive, and next to the Honda Accord, it just has a sportier look and feel. Unfortunately, my experience left me with the impression that it’s not quite as refined, and up to the quality standards of a Honda.  Otherwise, I would really consider the great-looking Pontiac G6 Coupe.

Pineapple Orange Juice Peach Schnapps

What is a Pineapple Orange Juice Peach Schnapps? Or is it called, Orange Juice Pineapple Peach Schnapps?

Drink Recipes change with the season. While this one doesn’t belong on the list of Top-10 Mixed drinks, it does have it’s own special place for the autumn season.  Just because summer is over doesn’t mean you cannot enjoy a good tropical drink. This delicious drink recipe can be enjoyed in the fall and makes an especially good Halloween, holiday treat. If Orange Juice and Peach Schnapps together are called a Fuzzy Naval, then Orange Pineapple Juice Peach Schnapps is aptly named, the prickly-fuzzy naval. Pineapple Orange Juice Peach Schnapps will bring the cold bite of fall into your favorite beach memories of last summer. The pineapple orange juice adds a little bit of tropical flare to the popular, fuzzy naval.

One of the things this drink reminds me of is the combination of peaches and cream. If you’ve never had peaches with your ice cream, then you don’t know what you’re missing. The flavor of this combination is simply amazing. If you’ve tried the ice-cream treat known as the Dreamsicle than you’ve got the concept: Ice Cream and sherbet. The two were simply meant to go together.  The flavor seems to explode, though, when you add the alcohol of a sweet liqueur, like Schnapps.

To make the Orange Pineapple Juice Peach Schnapps, you only need two items:

  1. Peach Schnapps
  2. Pineapple Orange Juice (available at your grocery store in regular orange juice containers.

Orange Pineapple Juice Peach Schnapps RecipeNaval Orange
The traditional way would be to use half and half of each of the ingredients above and add them to a cocktail glass with a cherry.

Pineapple

The preferred way: 3 parts Schnapps to 1 part Pineapple Orange juice, or Orange Pineapple Juice. Shake with 4 ice cubes, then strain into a martini glass. Add an orange peel for garnish.That, my friends, is a Pineapple Orange Juice Peach Schnapps….err.. or a Orange Pineapple Juice Peach Schnapps.
