I never thought I would be here in my life. I live a life that is natural and filled with natural products and cosmetics. IN the past I had thoughts that natural cosmetics were only for hippies and that to truly love yourself you had to get the most expensive shampoos you could find. I had no idea that I was actually living a natural life. The body lotion and other cosmetics I used were filled with essential oils and therefore organic on some level and I was helping the planet one rub at a time. How could I have been so naïve and honestly I wasn’t. It was not until I started coloring my hair that I realized that purple shampoo (MapleHolistics.com) was for me. The greater the quality the better the outcome and I wanted the best outcomes so I bought the best purple shampoo I could buy. It was for my blond hair because the sun would damage it now and again and leave it brassy. This harsh brassiness made me look weird so combating it was my first priority.
All the best cosmetic blogs were talking about coconut butter and oil and olive oil and they would have an article about purple shampoo. The shampoo was that royal color because of how it interacted with blond hair. The purple and yellow worked together to lighten the tone of my hair. You leave the purple shampoo in your hair and when you wash it out you realize how lighter and brighter y
our blond hair becomes. This is science and natural. I experimented further to find out that if you left the purple shampoo in for too long it would start to dye my hair purple, whacky but cool. It is dye after all. The purple tone was light and it didn’t really bother me too much. But purple shampoo is not the only kind of shampoo on the market. Other shampoo will help get rid of dandruff and flaky hair. There is nothing more unsettling than scratching your hair and watching flakes fall on your shoulder. So I wanted to create a shampoo that would help with brassiness and with dandruff. What I came up with was purple dandruff shampoo, it was the best of both worlds I was a magician of the highest order. What I did was add tea tree oil to my DIY purple shampoo and what I got was an all-natural shampoo that rid my scalp of dandruff and also brightened by brassy blond hair. It was perfect. I hope to one day manufacture it on a grand scale but until then I will continue living my humble existence and using essential oils to change the world and make a happier person. If you shower more than 3 times a week it would be prudent to wash your hair twice with a nice conditioner once a week. This coats the hair in a protective moist shield and leaves it hydrated like a marathon runner at the water table drinking water.
There are many things a new shooter will want to look for when shopping for a first handgun. You want a gun from a company that has street credibility for quality and strength. You also want a gun that will withstand anything you throw at it. Your gun is the most important tool to keeping you safe and you don’t want to settle for anything less than the best. That is why I always recommend Glock handguns and specifically the Glock 19. The Glock 19 gen 4 (check out our review at Gunivore) is the grand pappy was conceal to carry handguns and has been the go too gun for gun enthusiast and fresh gun owners alike.
The Glock 19 came out of the idea to create a gun that was more compact and lightweight than any that were on the market at that point. Glock started in the late 70’s and started its business with the success of the Glock 17 a handgun that won acclaim and a Austrian military contract. The Glock 17 was a radically new way to think about handguns and gun manufacturing in general. Other handguns at that point were made out of steel or other metal alloys and the Glock 17 was the first to be made out of polymer which was a lightweight plastic which was way more durable than steel and could withstand harsh situations like water and dirt. Many gun enthusiast thought that this “plastic” handgun was an embarrassment. Most were converted once they actually shot the pistol. But there was still a demand for a gun that was a bit more compact but still maintained the same level of precision and power. Gaston Glock went back to the drawing board and came out with the Glock 19.
The Glock 19 looks almost identical to the 17 and in a lot of ways is very imilar in how it functions. The real difference is in the feel and size. The Glock 19 is a more compact gun hands down. It is also made out of the high-density polymer and carries 9mm bullets. The difference appear in the ammo load, the Glock 17 holds 17 bullets while the 19 only holds 15. Of course things brings up another reason why I love Glocks, they are extremely customizable. So even though the stock Glock 19 only comes with a 15 bullet magazine you can upgrade to larger magazines. The only thing to be aware of is that the larger the magazine the more difficult it is going to be to conceal the gun. So that is something you should be conscious of.
Since the Glock 19 was introduced there are many companies that have tried to copy it. But like most things the original is the best. If you are a beginner and want a good gun that will serve you well for years to come I recommend you check out the Glock 19. It was the first gun I ever bought and I still own and shoot that same gun.
