I don't wear a swim cap. I just wash my hair in Aveeno All Natural shampoo and conditioner. I put on leave-in conditioner after I wash my hair and then just brush it out. That really does the trick. It leaves my hair smelling sweet and feeling awesome.

I hate how my hair feels when I have been in and around the pool. Now I know its from sucking out my Sebum.

all you have to do is click on "Tools", and go down to where it says "Clear Private data", and a box will come up, and then click on "Clear Private Data"
Then your history will all be cleared...

Mod. and other chicks,
OK GET THIS so i have scoliosis. which if u don't know, is where your back is very cricked and to improve it you need surgery or wear a back brace. now to fix mine i'll use a brace which will start in 3 months. and i have to SWIM 3 miles every week to get back muscles. i have to go to a back theripist and i have to go to the Ymca to an instuctor who will teach me at home excercises i'll go there 3 visits. and i have to get tons of calcium and vitamin D. because they said after your 35 you can't build your bones with calcuim and vit. D. they said they c women at age 70-80 go in there and they have scoliosis and there backbone collapsed! and i can't let that happen to me! mostly what i need help with is Next Year i'm starting high school and i have p.e which means people will c my brace when i change into gym clothes.and i'm scared.really scared. i don't want people i just met to think i'm a freak or something. any advice please!!!

my friend (lets call her debra) is having a really hard time right now. she got her first kiss thursday. now she has a boyfriend. good right?-until me and all our other friends do not approve of the guy. we all met him friday and hes a complete loser. first of all hes in a gang. i think he even killed a guy to get into the gang. hes not very nice. hes pretty rude actually. and hes goin into the 10th grade-we r goin into the 8th. me and all my friends agree that hes not right for her. debra sees the other side of it. hes sweet and he likes to put his hands around her waist and kiss her neck and all this mushy gushy stuff. hes also trying to move way to fast for her but shes soft-spoken and wont say anything bout it. im really afraid that hes gonna hurt her. she has really been thinking about it and she thinks she made a mistake but shes not gonna do anything to fix it. im trying to help her but its not working. wat should i tell her and/or do for her?
Tell her that you guys don't disapprove of him just because you just don't like him, but because he really doesn't seem like he's a good person and you don't want her to get hurt or involved in anything bad. Tell her that it's perfectly ok to make mistakes as long as she learns from them and moves on. So, it's time to learn from it and move on (break up with him).

I really like my boyfriend and I want to kiss him. How do I?
Hey Girl, there isn't any one way to kiss someone. But I promise, when the moment is right and if it's with the right person, then it will happen naturally. Don't plan it out or rush it too much because then if your plan doesn't work for some reason, you might be disappointed. ~Callie
by chocoholic=) on 6/10/2008 12:42:19 PM
My throat is feeling really dry now and I don't know why. Could it be from accidentally sucking up to much pool water this weekend? And if so what would be the best thing to do for my dry throat?
Hey Girl, the chlorine could def be the cause for a dry and scratchy throat. You should stay away from the pool for a few days and drink plenty of water so there's a constant rinse on your throat (something like Gatorade is good if you want a flavor, just make it something healthy that's refreshing). Sucking on candy or cough drops also helps, like Jolly Ranchers or Luden's. ~Callie

MOD i kinda sometimes feel like a "fraud" becus if i wear a padded bra my boobs seem bigger and have more shape, and if i wear a sports bra they seem flatter. its not a drastic difference, but with a pad they have more shape and are a lil biggere looking. shud i feel like a fraud?

if you want to loose a few pounds try to like exercise every day for say about 10-20 minutes, run around your block for 10 minutes, eat healthy, anddo sit ups or crucnhes, (they usually help your belly if thats where you want to loose the pounds)
hope these help,

hey girl! maybe just try to casually introduce yourself when he seems to be alone. or maybe there is a mutual friend that can introduce you.

i have been very insecure about my body lately. I am thin, and have a nice figure, but i have no boobs. i dont even reeli need to wear a bra with cups thats how small they are. i feel like im not reeli a teenage girl (im 13) yet becus i cant relate to a woman in that aspect. there are girls that r liek a year younger than me and have boobs, and one of my friends didnt even get her period yet and she has boobs. certain ppl notice my (pretty much but not completely)flat chest and even bring it up sometimes, and ik this mite seem liek a stupid thing to feel insecure about but it is bothering me. its kinda liek the thing that makes me better than the girl sitting rite next to me. but besides that, it makes me feel insecure about my body and self, bcus clothes cant fit around the bust and clothes just dont look as good on me and guys dont take me as seriuosly wen it comes to being pretty or "hot". can u give me advice to help me feel better?
Try to look at yourself in the mirror everyday and find something about yourself that you like and focus on that. Don't worry about being flat, a lot of girls don't get boobs until they get older. -lauren

I have been using some Clearasil stuff I found in the closet but it doesn't seem to work. I just have all these little bumps at the bottom of my cheeks and they aren't really zits yet but a few are. Then yesterday I had a zit on my nose and the tip of my nose was all oily! Please Help! Thanks! xoxoxo <3

i have a problem! me and my bf just broke up a few days ago. ((((( i didn't tell anyone except my bff.
i was walking down the street to his house, to try and talk to him so maybe we could get back together(i hoped). i turned a corner and just a few feet away they were making out! i just stared for a few minutes. she saw me, her eyes full of guilt. i could feel it coming off of her. she tryed to say something but i turned and ran before they could stop me.
what do i do now?
Hey Girl, Im so sorry about that. I would have a serious talk with your friend. Explain to her that it was not okay, that you trusted her, and that you clearly had feelings for him still. If anything she should have to come you first saying how she liked him too. As for this guy, you should want to be with him anyone if he moved on that quickly and with your bff! You can do better, you deserve better. *Cara T*
by Party-Princess-9060 on 6/5/2008 10:27:48 PM
I have this one friend, and usuually I really like her, and she's fun to be with and all. Admitedly we're not that close, but still, I like to have conversations with her and such. Anyway, all she ever talks about lately is her boyfriend, who she's already gone out with and broken up with multiple times, and all her blogs/bulletins on myspace are about him. Mostly really angsty. And, while I understand if this was the first time, but every time something happens, she posts a really emo blog about it, and it's starting to tick me off. It's like.. if someone's broken up with another person, shouldn't they realize that it isn't meant to be? I really want to shake her sometimes, and tell her to get over it, but I don't. How do I handle it? I swear, every thing she ever says is how no one likes her, and she can't trust anyone, and I know that's untrue. I can only handle so much of it before I get irritated. But how should I deal with it? Should I keep ignoring it like I do now, or tell her about it? If you could help, that would be fabulous. thanks! ^_^
Hey girl, you have to respect her ways of venting about her problems, even if it bothers you, if she wants to right blogs about how upset she is, then let her, its her own way of getting over it. I think you should try to be a little more understanding of her, afterall she is a friend. A lot of time people like that do things for attention but dont mean to annoy people by it. Just continue to ignore it and be friendly, If it really gets to you..ask her to talk about her problems with her so you can try to help her so she doesnt continue talking about the same problems. *Cara T*

hey girl! maybe if he is just generally nice and takes interest in you, that might show that he's flirting. other than that its kinda hard to say because everybody's different. but just see where it goes and maybe he'll give you more concrete clues.

i'm going to a water park 2 day and last time some guys started flirting with me and this time i want to look really good,so i'm wearing these cover-up shorts for swimming and for when i go to the amusement park.So should i wear this black shirt that has a monster on it and it says'come to the dark side,we have cookies',a blue shirt that says a lot of stuff,or a brown shirt that says 'I love boys'then boys is crossed out and it says'shoes'(but that one gives me no shape).which one should i wear
Hey GIrly, you should wear whichever shirt you feel the most comfy in! Ask a girl friend for her opinion but your opinion is the most important. Just a tip, the weather has been super steamy lately and wearing a black shirt will attract the sun, which might make the heat unbearable. Stay cool and hydrated!! ~Callie R.

Please help! My family and I (and my dog Smuckers!) are driving to San Diego for a vacation. I'm really excited, but I am really nervous about crossing the Cornado Bay Bridge. I've heard of many bridge collapses, and when i was little i saw someone in their car knocked off a bridge. Is there anything I can do to stop worrying??? and dramamine doesn't help much.
Hey Girl, even though bad things happen sometimes, you can't let that stop you from doing something. So when you're in the car and you're over the bridge you should close your eyes, listen to calming music, or breath deeply. Have your parents tell you when you're over the bridge so you don't have to look over the sides. Just think of how much fun you'll have once you get to San Diego!! That's an awesome vacation, so focus on the positive instead of the negative ~Callie R.

if you can help us, that would be great.
Hey Girl, try writing about a personal experience or a common interest you and your friends have. Writing songs can take a while so don't rush the "creative process". Once you get in the groove of writing songs, it'll be easy! Good Luck!! ~Callie R.

I mix some baking soda in my hand with my shampoo to help get build up and stuff out of my hair. This might help you get the odor out of your hair.

I really wanna be a model and there are additions nearby. how should i tell my parents?
Hey Girl, if you're really serious about wanting to model, then sit your parents down to have a real conversation with them. You want them to know that this means a lot to you and that you want their support. They'll prob have a lot of questions about what you want to do and how audtions and what not would work so make sure you do your homework on companies and auditions. Good Luck! ~Callie R.

They sometimes have obscene amounts of caffeine, sugar, and sometimes other energy boosting herbs that aren't particularly good for you, or may just be too much for you.

Just say something like, "Ew Mom, so I was scrolling up on a webpage and my mouse accidently moved off the scroll bar and clicked on a nasty ad. I can't believe they put that there!" Or you could just clear your browsing history. Just go to Tools > Clear Browsing History.

I am under tons of stress with finals at school, and we have been putting on plays, and I have had tennis and piano practice every day after school. I feel fine during the day, in fact I love running around from activity to activity. But then when I get home it is like the littlest things set me off into a tempertantrum with tears and yelling. And I hate it. I have been getting loads of sleep; every night I go to bed at nine. I just don't know what to do. THANX!
Even though you're getting enough sleep, you may not necessarily be getting enough rest. Mental rest. Take a day to relax, if you can. Instead of running from activity to activity, take a weekend day to do nothing. Or at least just nothing important. Sometimes when you get stressed out and busy, you get irritable. Just give yourself a break and time to destress.

Okay my three gymnastics buds are having a birthday party together and they invited me. Me and my mom went to get them a present and she suggested the dollar section in Target cuz it's cheap and buying three pressies can be expensive. I agreed with her so i got them each a straw beach bag, a beach towel, a pedicure set, nail polish, and gummy worms. I would love this present, and think it's cute for summer and that's why i got it for them... but idk if they will. They are more stuck up and they might think it's too cheap. At the party what should i do and how should i act if they don't like and think it's dumb? Like i said i would love to have this present, but it kind of makes you feel bad when they don't like the present you bought for them. Plus it may be WAY cheaper than what the other girls are getting them. My mom thought it was cute but if it's way cheaper am i supposed to feel embarrassed? MOD plz help! I don't know how to act if any of this happens!
I think it's a great present! It doesn't matter how much you spend on it, it's the thought that counts. And if they have any sort of politeness, they'll say they love the gift and appreciate it anyway. So don't worry about it. They aren't inviting you for your present, they're inviting you for your friendship.
by allidocious on 6/4/2008 5:32:51 PM
I need your advice. This guy in my pe class asked me out today. The thing is i don't like him. He's liked me for 2-3 months. I asked him how much he likes me (1 being the lowest, 10 the highest) he said 10/10. He said he loves my personality, nice, and that i'm pretty. I said I like you too....but as a friend. I see him again Friday, but now i don't know how to act. He is just not my type. What do i do now, especially since he still likes me? Thanks
you have to be honest with him! just be like hey i think you are an awesome friend but i dont think it would be right if we were more! xoxoashley
by ♥Anchors_Away♥ on 6/4/2008 5:30:21 PM
i'm out for summer....and its too hard to call him. cause i'm super sensitive(he know's that) and i'll probably cry. and i dont want to seem like a freak. What can i do to get over him?
hey! what kind of things do you like to do? make yourself constantly busy with friends and family and you will get over him in no time.

ok. my im im making the big transition from elemtary school to junior high, (6th to 7th grade). So me and all my friends were really excited. Then today i found out my crush might be moving from San Diego (where he is now) all the way to Sacremento! im really worried and i really dont want him to. me and hi have gotten really close this school year so i really want to tell him i like him, but if he isnt moving, it would be really awakward to see him next year. So what do you think...should i or not?
Go ahead and tell him you like him- i don't think you have much to lose in this situation. -lauren

I know this seems weird, but Im going to miss going to school. I've been really depressed lately. All my friends and CRUSHES are there and during the summer I'm going to a lame summer camp. HELP!!
by panicatthediscolova on 6/4/2008 4:12:29 PM
Ok, sorry...but I have another question....
Two of my good friends, (Let's call them Margarita and Tina) are in good shape (body-wise). They both exercise a lot, and neither of them are fat. Margarita is very skinny, like my size, and Tina isn't that skinny, but she is not obese or anything. They always tell me how lucky I am to be skinny, and compliment my metabolism. It makes me feel weird, like they are just fishing for compliments. I don't know what to do, because neither of them are fat, but they won't listen to me!!!
HELP ME MOD!!!
Remind them that they are skinny and ask them to not complain about their weight as much. -lauren
by megabegabyte on 6/4/2008 4:05:31 PM
Have you ever heard of the saying "There's always a silver lining in every cloud."?
Well...it seems like one of my friends always looks for the cloud in the silver lining. URGH! Do you have any suggestions in how to deal with her?
Politely tell her that the glass is half full, and be the positive one who points out the silver lining. Hopefully your good attitude will rub off on her. -lauren
by megabegabyte on 6/4/2008 4:02:23 PM
I'm a swimmer and I don't have smelly hair at all! I use a swim cap, but some of my friends have the same problem so they bought a special shampoo/conditioner that got rid of all the chlorine in your hair whenever you use it. They <3 that stuff

by sportygirl23 on 6/4/2008 2:58:23 PM
I know this is off the subject, but im having problems with my friend. Lately, she has been acting like a drama queen, and it is REALLY starting to get annoying! Any advice?
sit down with her and have a heart to heart convo. Tell her that you can't handle all of the drama and politely ask her to try and look at the good things in life. If she ever acts like a downer, just point out the silver lining in the sitch. Try to use your upbeat and fun attitude so that it rubs off on her. Good luck! -lauren

by heartshapedboxrox on 6/4/2008 2:17:18 PM
that seems like it would work.My hair doesn't stink that much
by heartshapedboxrox on 6/4/2008 2:16:08 PM
it depends though. do you wash your hair right after it gets wet in the pool? because if you dont then that would make sense because it would soak into your hair and stay there. but if you wash it right after than it will get out before it can actually get in your hair.
by joe-jonas-is-so-mine on 6/4/2008 2:10:24 PM
it helps if you use the exact same fragrance shampoo as conditioner, so there's no funky smells goin on! Good Luck! P.S. I had this problem, too!

I have REALLY light blond hair and not only does the chlorine turn my hair green, but it turns the roots REALLY dark green! I use a swim cap everyday, but don't know where to get swim shampoo. Is there anything else I could do so I don't look like a Dr.Seuss character?!?!
the shampoo should do the trick! get it at some local drugstore. xoxoashley

omg i have the same problem!! i swim all the time, (no duh, read my username but now i can't swim cuz i broke my wrist)and the chlorine turns my black hair brown and dries it out. what do i do? swim with a swim cap and use swim shampoo... just like the advice said!!
by i love to swim..... on 6/4/2008 12:19:59 PM
Jsut get really strong smelling shampoo & use MORE conditioner... also, if you use heat products a lot, that could be the cause of a wierd smell, so use a hair protector before you use heat products on your hair.. and if it is the Chlorine.. than go to G-LIFE and there is like this hair stuff it has under a category and it works!
by flipflopdiva1234 on 6/4/2008 12:11:09 PM
My sister is usually very bubbly around me, but since my mom is on a one week vacation my sister is quiet and she cries a lot. I try to cheer her up, but all she wants to do is clean...which is strange. What can I say or do to get her to cheer up and hang out with me like she usually does? Thanks a lot in advance!
