@Sister Administrator I lost it when I was reading a paleo cookbook, and the author recommended that people claim they were allergic to gluten when eating out at restaurants. As someone with celiac, who in the last few years has gotten an increase in restaurant workers asking me just how serious my gluten free needs are, or has gotten eye rolls for people on the other side of the counter, fuck you paleo author lady.

This was SO GOOD, Jia! I recently interviewed the head of the Dove Project. She's a really upbeat lady, really engaged with the work that she does. But I just couldn't get her to say one IMPORTANT thing about marketing and beauty and it was very frustrating... maybe I'm just not a great journalist.

Why don't they just call it butthole yoga and be done with it.

What kind of sadistic fuck would even dream up naked yoga.

@Shelly Shim@facebook Her hair looks better on the left because in that picture she hadnt yet spend the past few years literally chemically bleaching her hair with both carbonic and acetic acid.

LOL that you thought your hair got so much lighter because shampoo was darkening it before, when you have literally been washing it with two different kinds of bleach multiple times a week for the past few years. I mean why would you not even research what acetic acid does to hair before devoting your entire haircare regime to it?

I tried BS/ACV for over a year. Worked very nice... until my hair started falling out and breaking everywhere. It turns out, the harsh changes in pH are incredibly damaging and greatly weakens your hair. You see the difference in your before and after pictures? That's damage. The color lightening the equivalent of a heavy peroxide bleaching. The way it sticks out more is because the hair cuticles are fuzzed out--creating more volume and sticking to everything. That's literally what damaged hair looks like. If you put a hair of yours under a microscope, it would look like a pine tree.

Also, I don't know where people get the idea that baking soda is natural. It is made in a lab. If you want to go actually natural, go water-only.
