Do you still have the original color of your hair? Do you dye your hair? In what color, black, brown or blond?
Dyeing hair is already normal to our day to day living. There are many reasons why men and women changed the color of their hair. Women tend to dye their hair more often than men. Some women change the color of their hair when they think something has to change especially if something is bothering their minds. May it be their relationships with their partners or they just want to try what it would be like to have blond or brown hair. Some women dye their hair because they don´t like to see themselves old, having gray hair.
I dye my hair black. As black as it was before. I did it twice to three times a year. It depends on how many gray hair I have seen on my head when combing them. Gladfully, most of my gray hair are behind my back that I could not see them. It doesn´t matter anyway as long as I am healthy. The few gray hair that I have in front are taken care of by brushing black mascara when I am in a hurry. Yes, this is the trick I learned through watching you tube videos. It´s very practical and an easy treatment on the go. It will get off in the next hair washing anyway. Now the problem is, the stain that is left on the sink or in my bath tub.
I have dyed my hair an hour ago and I made a lot of black stains on the sink that I had a hard time getting them off. At first I used the normal bathroom cleaner but I was not contented. There were still shadows of the hair dye. I kept on thinking what to do and I thought of my nail color remover that was in my manicure box. If my nail color was removed by this nail remover, why not a hair dye stain? Well, I got the aceton nail remover from the box and I tried getting off the hair dye on the sink and voila! The stains were gone after scrubbing them with aceton on the cotton balls.
I know some of you changed the color of your hair every now and then. What did you do to get rid of the stain on the sink?

I sat in the dentist treatment chair, mouth wide opened, eyes closed and hands tightly holding the tissue paper. I was nervous. The dentist was working on my teeth, beside him, his assistant. I got an injection a few minutes before he was drilling on my teeth.
I tried to calm myself. I did not like going to the dentist but I had to. I tried thinking about many things that distracted my listening to the aweful drilling sound that I heard. As always, my mind was wandering again from far away land and the food that I have not eaten for ages.
“Can I have a headphone with a relaxing music?”, I asked the dentist without voicing this out. It would be nice to hear a relaxing music of Mozart or Beethoven while being treated by the dentist. Then I wont hear “drrrr…drrr…..drrr…..” from the drill machine.
My tummy made a sound. “What shall I cook later for dinner?”, I asked my tummy. Right! Fish! Fried fish in sweet and sour sauce with ginger. Then boiled rice and salad. Yummy! I wanted to lick my lips but my mouth was wide open. My mouth was watering thinking about the food. I wonder if the dentist had noticed it.
“Frau (Mrs.) Alberts, close your mouth, please. Open your mouth, tried to bite, chew, up and down, up and down… Blablabla…” It took a while that I realized the dentist was talking to me. I was gone from the drilling situation. I felt relaxed while the dentist and his assistant were busy working. I did not even hear the sounds when I entered in my fantasy world. I never thought that it still functioned. Yay! My trick still worked.
Yes, I travel in my fantasy world when I am at the dentist. I tried to ignore the sound and the pain. But there was no pain. My dentist is very good. Gladfully! I hope though that the bill is not much.
