If You’re a Brunette…

and, yes, i am a brunette…

…Hold On to Your Hair

More than half of the 30 million American women with visible hair loss are brunettes. That could be because they have less hair to begin with: “Brown tresses are generally coarser and thicker than blonde or red strands, and your body produces fewer of them,” Schlessinger says. So when brown hair follicles die, they leave behind more noticeable thin patches. Stave off sparse coverage by eating right. Low iron can contribute to hair loss, so start swallowing 18 milligrams a day; one cup of fortified oatmeal will provide your daily fill.

and i do lose a LOT of hair.  have yet to notice thin patches, etc, but have to clean out the drain daily.  and i like oatmeal, so…

…Stub Out That Butt

Your chestnut mane is the result of lots of melanin, which could fast-track your dependency on nicotine. The reason: Melanin prevents your liver from quickly metabolizing the drug, and the longer it’s in your system, the faster you become hooked. Animal studies suggest that vitamin C helps keep your liver in top shape. Swallow 75 milligrams a day in the form of half a cup of red peppers or a medium-size orange. Your best bet, though, is never to pick up a cancer stick. Period.

yuck.  peppers.  i hate peppers.  oranges i can do.  as long as they’re seedless.  and someone peels it for me.  and gets all the white crap off.  hmmmm… maybe i’ll just stick with supplements…

…Snag a Boyfriend

Do gentlemen really prefer blondes? Nope, according to Florida State University research. Not when it comes to long-term relationships. Plus, according to a 3,000-person survey, men prefer brunettes as serious mates because they see them as more reliable and steady. If you’re not looking for a long-term thing, try a little spontaneity: Make the first move by slipping that cute guy your digits.

I KNEW IT!!!!!  but make the first move?  never!
