Running a small business is a lot of work, Quickbooks has always made it easier for me. Bought a new computer with Windows 8, needed the newest version on QB to go with it, and so far, I have no complaints about the upgrade. Starts quickly, runs smoothly, has tools for everything from inventory to banking. Plus, with the online back up and other features, this version is primed for the digital age.
I am a 44 year old woman who has been experiencing slightly thinning hair since age 39. I went to the dermatologist and had blood work done for my thyroid, hormones, and later a scalp biopsy. The blood work was normal. The diagnosis from the biopsy was androgenic alopecia or what my dermatologist said was hair shedding due to the hormonal changes that come with age. If you google this you'll get a lot of information, much of it contradictory and negative. I should state, my shedding was not visible to anyone but me, but it was an increased thinning. I'd wash and blow dry my hair, look down to the floor and the tears would start flowing. The dermatologist prescribed men's Rogaine foam, applied once a day at night before bed. At two months I experienced a slightly increased shed which admittedly freaked me out! After some research, I found this is normal and decided to stick with it. Now, at four months, the shedding has decreased substantially. From what I understand, the product can take up to 6-12 months to show hair reversal, ie. new growth.
I also take Elon Matrix 5000 a hair vitamin (not overloaded with stuff, just biotin, silicon, and L-Cysteine) and I also take Nature's Way MSM - one tablet a day.
Hair thinning for women can be devastating. I normally wear my hair short. However, in a fit of anxiety, at that two month mark I had my hair cut to a Caesar just to prepare myself for what I thought was the inevitable. Needless to say, now that my hair shed has decreased and my hair is growing in nicely, I have only one thing to say - this is treatable and reversible - BUT YOU MUST BE PATIENT and willing to experiment with treatments and/or supplements etc.
If you are trying this, give it time to work and be consistent. Note: using excess product will not improve the results. Also, because this is a foam, it is important to try to get it on the scalp and not in the hair. Applying the foam to cold fingers will prevent the foam from melting/softening in your hands before you get to apply it.
Ahhhh... Sade, her name alone speaks to my inner sense of beauty, taste, and style that makes listening to her music-and that special quality of her voice that some have described as 'smoky', sultry, whatever, an continually unique experience, no matter how many times I hear her sing. I love her performances because she doesn't over-do anything, yet, offers what comes across as a private part of herself, which, personally, I feel has always been the very heart of her appeal. EXCELLENT concert DVD
