I have hazel eyes too! I've always known mlp is good people. :P

But yeah, you have nothing to worry about unless you develop glaucoma and have to use the actual med. Latisse doesn't really change eye color because (I am guessing) it's much lower concentration and administration on the eyelid, not in the eye.

Anita, I had a fungus on my scalp too, some eyears ago, and doc prescribed those blue shampoos (can't remember the name of it for my life...) and I thought it would wreck my hair, but it didn't (and I didn't use any special conditioner). And the scalp was back to fully normal within the month.
I hope this treatment that you're having takes care of it.
Thanks for sharing your experience! I wasn't sure if it's ever gonna go away, since the doctor did say it was a maintenance treatment, not a cure. I forgot to ask how it came about in the first place, but I suppose once it takes hold, it's a bother to get rid of. But it can apparently come and go, which is good. (Well, good in that it can go away, not that I want it to come back! :lol: ) I kinda don't want to shell out $10 for a tiny bottle of shampoo every month for the rest of my life. :o

It's actually not that bad now, so hopefully it'll just get better.


I read somewhere that putting milk of magnesia on your scalp and then rinsing off before you get out of the shower helps.
I have people come in sometimes with similar issues wanting a "natural" remedy to their problems and I have to resist yelling "GO SEE A DOCTOR!!!" at them. Then they make stupid purchases despite me warning them that it won't do a damn thing. So, you should definitely pat yourself on the back for being intelligent and consulting a medical professional. I hope the medicated shampoo works.
Well I HAVE tried a bunch of things, natural remedies included, and all of them stop working after a while. It's weird - with hair, it seems like you have to switch things up. At least now I have a collection of things to try if it gets worse. :lol:

Speaking of natural remedies, I started taking omega 3 supplements and my dry eyes seem to be improving a little. He also told me to get a particular kind of OTC antihistamine eyedrops since I seem to have the weird kind of allergies that make your eyes dry instead of water. :P

I should probably amend my previous statement. I think trying natural remedies that are formulated to help with issues like this is fine. The dumbasses that I get buy products that were not at all intended to aid with those kinds of issues. Example: I once had a woman bring in her son to look at products for the "dry skin" on his arms. I take a look at his arms, and they are not just dry. They are red, scaly, and skin is flaking off in patches. We were beyond dry at this point. I tell her that he needs to see a dermatologist because this is far beyond our scope of body care. She insists that he doesn't need to see one and that she wants a "natural" remedy. I half-heartedly suggest tea tree oil while reminding her that I am not qualified to help with these kinds of issues, and she buys body lotion. Idiot.

I knew it! Hazel eyed people are automatically awesome. Because I'm totally awesome.

Anita, I hope you find something to fix your problem! That sounds awful.

I haven't seriously considered Latisse, but I have thought about trying one of the new drugstore remedies. But I don't want to add yet another step my daily beauty routine! :drama:

Yeah, my mom has been going for natural/homeopathic/herbal remedies more often than not. If it's something for say, non-chronic pain or my dry eyes, that's totally fine, but I told her if she got cancer, I'm feckin' taking her in for chemo! :P There definitely comes a point where it's time to bring in the big guns.

Thanks. :) It's really not that bad - it doesn't hurt or itch or anything (unlike my sister's eczema on her fingertips :yikes: ) and when I've asked people for help for it, they actually have to take a really close look at my hair and touch it. So it's not bad in the relative scheme of things. Most of it is being overfamiliar with my own hair and how icky it is now compared to how it was before. :P

Part of me wants to cut my hair super-short so my hair will dry more readily, since it seems to be worse at the back of my head where my hair dries slowest. No idea if that will help...

Fungi like moist, so the faster your hair dries the better, use a blow-dryer if necessary, I never let my hair air dry unless it's really hot and I have fine hair... Other tips: rotate your shampoos, avoid shampoos with strong artificial perfumes and colors. I'll tell you more if I remember it, I've had eczema since I can remember and it's manageable.

You don't need a specialist.

I'm on vacation! :)

Which means plenty of time to wear all of my non office-friendly polishes.

Enjoy the vacation, beepbeep! :)
Speaking of non office friendly polishes, I'm wearing China Glaze Broken Hearted (pink crackle) over China Glaze Recycle (gray). I'm not sure how I feel about it yet.

My sister got as new Chi combo flat iron/curler and she tried it out on me. My hair refuses to curl. Several previous experiments by me and a cousin have likewise been flops. I straightened by hair this morning, if that affects anything. Its ironi given that my hair is naturally wavy :huh:

I'm not enjoying those crackle polishes. I got two of them - one of them was the regular O.P.I. stuff, and the other was the Sephora O.P.I. because the Sephora edition is supposed to be better. While it DID go on much better than the regular one, I'm still rather meh about the whole thing.

Yeah the crackle polish didn't work so well for me. It looked pretty crappy so I took it off and put a light pink shade on with a gold shimmer top coat. Looks much more work friendly.

I hate the crackle polish. It just looks messy to me.
