Beauty gone bad -- Lady’s head expands after using hair dye
Beauty & Lifestyle -
A woman’s head doubled in size after a horrific allergic reaction to a common hair dye that left her struggling to breathe.
19-year-old English student Estelle, from Paris, shared photos showing her shocking disfigurement caused by the chemical PPD, which is found in 90 percent of hair dyes.
Estelle, who had previously suffered a mild reaction to a different hair dye, had even used the allergy test that comes with the product.
But, instead of waiting the recommended 48 hours, the teen applied the dye after just 30 minutes.
The horrific reaction then caused her scalp to itch before the top of head started to swell up.
Speaking to French daily Le Parisien, Estelle said:
“I could still see; here I was struggling to breathe.” .
Estelle had attempted to treat herself using antihistamines and cream from a pharmacist but she awoke the next day to catch a glimpse of her reflection.She explains:
“My forehead had doubled in volume. My head was like a light bulb”.Her mother rushed her to the hospital where the circumference of her head now measured 63 cm rather than the average 56.
Estelle’s tongue then began to swell up and she soon had difficulty catching her breath.She was given an adrenaline injection and her condition finally lessened, finally returning her face back to normal.
Since surviving her ordeal, Estelle’s mother believes there should be greater awareness of the dangers behind PPD.

Bovi Writes On Girls Who Avoid Bouquets At Weddings He HostedAce Nigerian comedian, Bovi, who ‘might be opening a church soon’ because of the anointing on him, took to Instagram to share the fate of girls who avoided the bouquet in weddings he hosted.According to Bovi who disclosed he has hosted 53 weddings since starting off in 2006, every girl who avoided the tossing of the bouquet, have remained single till date and will remain that way till 2042. He added that none of the marriages he hosted, has ended.Bovi wrote;“I’ve been hosting weddings since 2006. However from 2013 when I teamed up with my manager till today I have hosted 53 weddings and guess what, all those marriages are still intact. Even the ones that cracked got mended. And every single girl that has avoided the tossing of the bouquet when I called them out have remained single and will remain single till 2042. Moral of the story is, I have anointing. Now when people ask “who’s hosting your wedding”, even if you lie and say “it’s Bovi”, your marriage will last. I can’t help it. May your blessings coming this week last long just because I say so…. in The mighty name of Jesus”
African Black Soap And Its Beauty BenefitsAfrican women are known for their glowing and flawless skin. Africa is the hottest continent on Earth, and the sun can be pretty harsh on the skin. Despite that, the African women maintain smooth skin that looks healthy inside out. Ever wondered how? It’s because of their nature-inspired beauty routine.Beauty traditions in Africa are closely held secrets that are passed down through generations. One such ancient African beauty secret is the African black soap that has taken the beauty world by storm. Scroll down to know everything about this centuries-old beauty secret that turned into a cult favorite.What Is African Black Soap? Why Is It So Special?Also known as Ose Dudu orAlata Samina, and Anago soap, African black soap originated in West Africa (especially Ghana). The tribes of West Africa make this soap with plant parts that are locally harvested.The traditional recipe of African black soap is a closely guarded secret that is only known to the families that prepare it. The recipes may differ from region to region. However, they have a few common ingredients. The local tribes of West Africa usually use ingredients like palm oil, coconut oil, raw African shea butter or shea tree bark, cocoa pods, plantain skin, and honey for making this extraordinarily rich soap.Usually, the plant parts are collected and then sun-dried. They are then roasted until they turn into ash. Then, different types of plant fats, such as coconut oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, and other fats are added to it, and this mixture is stirred on heat for at least 24 hours until it solidifies. Once it is solid, the soap is cured for at least two weeks before using it. The ingredients found in this soap make it special and extremely beneficial for the skin. They are:Plantain skin: Contains antioxidants, such as riboflavin, vitamin C, thiamine, and folic acid.Coconut Oil: Has anti-inflammatory properties and contains antioxidants that protect your skin from UV damage and prevent skin aging.Palm Kernel Oil: Is an excellent moisturizer and emollient that keeps your skin hydrated and nourished.Palm Oil: Is derived from the palm fruit (and not its kernel) and contains beta-carotene, vitamin E, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants.Shea Butter: Has anti-inflammatory property and keeps your skin moisturized and prevents fine lines and signs of aging.However, keep in mind that the ingredients of the African black soap may differ depending on the region where it is made. For instance, plantains are only found in West and Central Africa, so the African black soap made in the Eastern region doesn’t contain plantain peels.All these natural ingredients make African black soap the holy grail of skin care. It is a step ahead of the commercially available synthetic soaps. If you are not yet convinced about its benefits, read on to know more about the magic it can create on your skin.Benefits Of African Black Soap1. It Helps In Soothing Irritated Skin2.
