love palm reading

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : My 14 YO daughter wants to be taken to a palm reader as a Christmas present. What should I expect?

Personally, I don’t believe in the validity of palmistry, and she’s not saying she does either — she just thinks it would be fun. This is something nobody in my family has ever done, though, so I don’t know what to expect. Also, how can I find one, how long does a reading take, and how much should I expect to pay?

Answer by Victoria B
I had my palm read by a lady sittin on the side of the road once and she told me to get my nipples pierced so just make sure you go to a decent one =)

Answer by Jerry M
If this is something you daughter wants then she should know where it can be done. Its a fun thing to do, price can vary. Indulge her.

Answer by braybray
To find one you can simply google one in your area, and I think that you have nothing to worry about with taking her to one, it would be a nice experience, teenagers are all for trying new things, and you could do it with her.

Palm readers are really cheap, usually no more than $ 20 (if that!). It only takes a few minutes and all they’ll do is ask her name and have her put her hand in theirs, palm up. They’ll look at her palm and tell her all kinds of things, mostly what to expect in the future. I had my palm read once in Atlanta (the only time I’ve ever done it) and the woman kept going on about how she could tell I had a love for knowledge and I was very studious, very “hungry to learn” as she put it. I asked if it was the Howard Community College shirt that tipped her off or did she really see that in my palm…..that “reading” didn’t last too much longer!

Gypsy’s have a reputation for ripping people off. Unfortunately, in the case of palm readers, this is true. They are very good at picking up on little nuances and reactions. And don’t expect them to give your little girl a break. You might get one that scares her pretty badly.
Initially they will quote a price for a basic reading but, if they think they can get more, they will certainly try.

Answer by cocopuff
sometimes they fish for a line. dont give them any information about your self and watch your body language. then if they are for real it will be a better experience. some are real and some are not. always beware and dont pay to much or pay for extra readings

I am officially natural and I love my new curly hair. I am currently taking fish oil supplements to help my hair grow. Any tips on the fastest ways to help my hair grow healthy, strong and long.

Answer by monmichka
Wow, aren’t you brave? I’ve been trying to build the courage up to do that for years. My sister went natural a few years ago, her hair is absolutely beautiful. She conditions it well weekly and she makes sure to keep her ends trimmed.

Answer by The Smartest guy in the room
Go on youtube there are plenty of natural women on there. I think natural hair looks better then relaxed hair because it’s healthier and longer usually.

Answer by LUCY C
you are off to a good start with the fish oil which has protein which is needed for hair growth. try and get you some hair s.products meant for hair growth. also taking a multi vitamin helps. to help manage your hair get you some carol’s daughter products which carry a whole line of wonderful shampoo,conditioners,and scalp conditioners which will make your hair more manageable.

NATURAL HAIR AND LIFE:
http://www.racialicious.com/2008/12/18/nappily-ever-after-not-quite/
HOW TO TAKE CARE OF NATURAL HAIR :
1.) Shrinkage, it may appear hair is not growing when it is. Kinky/curly hair has been known to shrink up to 75% it’s actual length. You can band hair to make it show it’s length or you can use products/leave in conditioners that reduce shrinkage like Fantasia IC gel or Kinky Curly Curling Custard.

2. It is fragile at every twist and turn and our hair is one of the thinnest textures. And then the texture causes the strands to rub up against each other when free (not in a protective style like palm rolls and twists) causing breakage. This all = breakage. Solution? Put it into styles that protect ends and are low stress on the hair. And only detangle with conditioner.

3.) It is not unmanagable and it grows, it just can’t be treated like straight/relaxed hair. Don’t expect it to do things it can’t do like move around or grow downwards. You can’t comb it with a narrow tooth comb while dry. That is like a daily hair cut for napptural hair. You can only comb it with a wide tooth comb while it has a conditioner with slip in it. [naturalhairgrows.com]

4.) Condition, condition, condition after every time you wash. And deep condition (moisture that can seep in strands and usually involves heat to open hair cuticles) I like Pantene Relaxed and Natural every two weeks at least. It has a lot of slip so detangling is a breeze. And apply leave in conditioner daily. Our hair is porous and conditioner seals in moisture. Just don’t confuse conditioner w/ moisture. Water is moisturizing and then you apply conditioner as a sealant.

5.) Find out what ingredients in hair products are harmful. THROW OUT any products where first ingredients are petroleum or mineral oil. Cheap ingredients that do nothing but build up in your hair causing dryness and breakage and clogginf pores. Product build up=moisture can’t get in=dry brittle hair. Biracialhair.org has a good ingredient dictionary. Reading ingredients is key. Remember- the only place the product has to tell the truth is in the ingredient list. Does it really make hair grow thicker and longer? Check the back.

5.) Recognize what causes breakage. Unhealthy hair is the main culprit but rough fabrics, heat, dry hair, brushing, rough detangling, coloring, repetitive styling can make situation worse. Always wear a satin cap to bed and sleep on satin pillowcase at least. Braid hair down before going to sleep in a few box braids or twists. This limits tangles, breakage and it can preserve a style. Limit chemicals in your hair if you put them in at all. And don’t do the same style every day as this creates a breaking point. Baby your ends and your hair will grow.

6.) Protective hairstyles. I mentioned this before. Anything covering ends, constricting hair is protective. Our hair is so fragile/easily dried out it’s not smart to leave it out daily. Twists, puffs, braids, palm coils, certain updos, weaves, cornrows, buns, dreadlocks etc are all examples of protective styling. These can be left in for days/weeks and cut down on breakage and split ends. You can rock an afro every now and then but I don’t recommend every day if you want long hair. Moisturize even when hair is protected.

8.) Shampooing. Biggest myth in black hair care. You can shampoo as often as you like and in fact should at least once a week. Why the myth? Harsh commercial shampoos (suave) have surfectants that it is tough to get out of every twist and turn in napptural hair. Plus our hair=porous=soaks up everything it touches=getting all shampoo out is tough. Shampoo often once you find a gentle shampoo and eliminate silicones from your hair routine that build up in hair requiring harsh shampoos. And focus on scalp, not so much on hair.

9.) Styling. This goes hand in hand with leave in condish. But you should also get styling products with humectants in them (gels, shea butter, glycerine, kinky curly curling custard) to style hair with. Napptural hair can do anything you want as long as it is moisturized.

10.) The most important tip: love your hair, educate yourself about it. I provided soem great sites below. It is only unmanageable if you try to make it do something against it’s nature. It sounds silly but imagine your hair could talk and it will tell you to stop straightening it, relaxing it, and manipulating it to death. It’s not bad hair, just hair, transition your mind about it’s unique beauty.

Answer by kangol’N’curls
Congratulations on doing the BC. I BC’ed last summer and I love it.

There isn’t any magical formula that will make your hair grow faster than its’ supposed to because hair growth is pre-determined by genetics. On average, hair grows 1/2 inch per month, or 6 inches per year. Although, it depends on your genes most people will probably fall into the average – which is why it’s an average. There are things that can slow down your growth, though, like clogging your pores by greasing your scalp (if you have a very dry scalp then you can use oil on it, but if not then you really don’t need to put anything on your scalp).

Instead of trying ot make your hair grow faster you should focus on length retention. When I BC’ed last summer I had less than one inch of hair and now, 6 months later my hair is about an inch past my earlobe because I retained ALL of my hair growth by keeping my hair from breaking off. To do this I rarely manipulate my hair. I rarely comb and never brush it. When I do comb it it’s with a wide-tooth comb and with soaking wet hair that has conditioner in it – this makes it easier to comb and you won’t break off a lot of hair in the process. But, I rarely comb my hair at all. I wear it in a curly fro 99.9% of the time. I wake up in the morning, dampen my hair, add product, finger comb, and leave. This is what has kept my hair from breaking off. My hair grows on average and by retaining all of my length I plan on having at least shoulder length hair by the time my one year BC anniversary comes around.

I also wash and condition my hair several times a week. I condition it to keep it strong and healthy, and I cleanse it to keep my scalp and hair clean. I started using Wen ( http://www.wenhaircare.com , http://www.chazdean.com ) cleansing conditioner so I can cleanse my hair as much as I want without it drying out – which is what most shampoos do.

I was born with my innate gifts of clairvoyance (see things), clairaudient (hear things), clairsentient (know things). By the time I was 3 I knew there were things that I knew that I could not tell anyone about because they got really weird if I did. At 13 I got my first deck of tarot cards (Ryder – Waite) and started doing readings professionally.

At 16 I had my first near death experience when I was in a pick-up truck that hit a semi-tractor trailer truck. My dad had died several years earlier – and he had been a semi-truck driver. I was fortunate enough to receive my Father as a Spirit Guide that day, My second NDE was when I was 18 – I was in a Piper Cub 2 seater aircraft that did a hard landing into the side of a mountain. I have spent my entire life studying and working with the wyrd and wonderful in all its guises. While not required by any means I enjoy using the Tarot or any of the other divination tools I have at hand you may want to use for your reading.

I have Doctorate Degrees in Divinity (D.Div) and Theology (Th.D.) from Northern Lights Seminary and continue to study. Among some of my other titles are Psychic Minister, Esoteric Minister, High Priestess, Shaman, Spiritual Coach, Psychic Coach, Psychic Healer, Life Coach, Relationship Coach, Small Business Consultant, Paralegal, Executive Director and College student. I am honored to be a “reader’s reader,” meaning that many of the people do readings for are readers or spiritual workers themselves.
