Beware

Beware of info commercials. My daughter is a sucker for them. No matter what the commercials promise, it is a scam. When the curly green hoses appeared on the TV screen, I too took the bait and ordered two of them. While they were useful and lightweight, I could have waited and purchased one at Walmart. Sooner or later, all the products end up in Walmart. My daughter ordered the Wen hair products and convinced me to try them. I signed up like a dummy; I should have know better. I didn’t. Before long I was receiving a big box of the products every month until I had a year’s supply. I cancelled the program and spent the next two years using the product until I discovered the part in my hair was growing wider and I was losing my hair.
I returned to the internet to realize that others had complained of hair loss with the product. I have quit using the stuff and hope my hair grows back. On another note, I began to treat myself several years ago with pedicures. Every month or so I would visit the Vietnamese Salon in Uvalde and have a pedicure. A year later I noticed my big left toenail had turned white. I ignored it until I discovered it wasn’t going away. Back to the internet and I read that it was a fungus. Several cures and treatments were recommended. Rather than buying the expensive creams and ointments touted by the websites, I believed one comment that Clorox would cure the fungus before it spread to the other toes. It worked and now the toenail is growing out normal. I blame the fungus on the pedicure place. I don’t like giving up this one luxury and have come to the conclusion to do some research before I change my life practices. If it’s not broken, don’t fix it.
