Dandruff consists of small white scales that usually appear in the scalp and hair. The medical term for dandruff is PITYRIASIS. If neglected for long, excessive dandruff can lead to baldness. The nature of dandruff is not clearly defined my medical authorities. Associated causes of dandruff are: a sluggish condition of the scalp, possibly due to poor circulation, infection, injury, lack of nerve stimulation, improper and uncleanness. Contributing causes are: the use of strong shampoos and insufficient rinsing of the hair after a shampoo.
There are two types of dandruff:
First – dry type and
Second – greasy or waxy type.
Just as the skin is continuously being shed & replaced, the upper most layer of the scalp is also being cast off all the time. These scales loosen and fall off freely. The natural shedding of the scales should not be mistaken as dandruff.
To avoid any type of dandruff, we recommend to use anti-dandruff shampoos, for example Selson Blue. If dandruff persists, we would suggest to see a dermatologist.
Forewarned Is Forearmed!
We would like to forewarn are readers of some contagious skin diseases which exist, to avoid any possible complication in your life.
Animal Parasitic Infection
Animal parasite is a highly contagious skin disease caused by the itch mite (lice). The lice feed from the scalp, itching occurs and resultant scratching can cause an infection. Lice is transmitted from one person to another by contact with infested hats, comb, brushes or other personal articles. Lice will then die after 7 days if not on scalp. Lice live of heat from scalp. Head lice do not fly or jump but run very quickly. Nits are tiny yellow white eggs of lice. Nits and dandruff might look similar (white particles) but dandruff is easily removed by the touch as to nits stick to the hair shaft close to the scalp (for heat). They are very difficult to remove and must be scraped off with your nail or a special small tooth comb.
Special shampoos must be used to kill the Lice and Nits and must then be completely removed from the hair and scalp with the special tooth comb. Warm vinegar is also great to remove these parasites. Disinfecting all personal items that have been in contact is a Must – for example: pillows, clothing, etc

Winter weather in most of the south will usually not interfere with a good backyard barbeque. Most of us don’t have to be concerned with sweeping snow off the grill in order to burn a steak. Our biggest challenge in the first cookout of the year is dusting the spiders and crickets out of the charcoal tray.
If you’ll be using charcoal and a liquid lighter, know what kind of accelerant you’re going to be pouring on those briquettes. It’s not the volume of the whoooomp you hear when you light the fire that determines whether you coals will burn evenly or not.
Be wise and never use gasoline, lacquer thinner, lantern fuel and any of the highly combustible solutions you can buy at the paint store. Any of those can light up the night like a roman candle, and you with it. Pay the extra dollar and stick with charcoal lighter even though its fragrance may linger on the meat you’re cooking.
