Students cheer when electricity finally restored to a school in Puerto Rico months after Hurricane Maria by ekser in UpliftingNews

There are around 1500 electric linemen from the mainland in Puerto Rico helping. Many of them have been there for months. When 80% of the whole transmission grid is destroyed it's going to take a lot of time to fix it safely.

/u/mlhradio response to Republican journalist should be read by every Republican who blames "the party" for the Trump era by Wraith8888 in bestof

The democrats are doing the exact opposite of what I think they should be doing. They could be setting up a "big tent" of moderate to center-left politics to catch waves of voters that are going to want to jump off the Trump train. Instead they are moving hard left at the party leadership level.

Tons of republicans are now stuck with either Trump, who they don't like very much, or do a 180 on most of their political beliefs. Give them candidates who represent them in a common sense moderate way and they will jump aboard with the dems in huge numbers.

I have dandruff. How do I fix it? by PresidentCoolidge in NoStupidQuestions

Good point on the water temp. Needs to be not too cold because it will close your pores, but not too hot because it can damage the skin or denature the helpful proteins in the remedies.

The most common cause of dandruff is oily scalp, not dry. This leads to buildup against the skin which irritates it. It can also lead to minor yeast or bacterial infections of the skin which causes flaking.

The first step is to make extra sure you are rinsing your hair thoroughly after washing. Like really thorough. I'm not saying you aren't rinsing well, I'm saying that you need to rinse like a maniac. Using a soft brush to brush from the roots while in the shower can help.

As for remedies stick with the selsun for at least a week. One day is not enough time to judge. Every dandruff shampoo has differences, one may work for you.

There are some natural remedies that work great as well. Lemon juice and tea tree oil are both good hair treatments that serve as natural anti fungal and anti bacterial agents. Lemon juice especially can help balance the pH of your scalp and prevent the oil buildup that leads to the flakes. Try two tablespoons of juice directly on the scalp for about 2 minutes while in the shower, then rinse with a dilute mixture of two more tablespoons mixed in a cup of water. Finish the rest of your shower then wash and rinse with dandruff shampoo.

One last thing, I know it itches but don't scratch! Scratching irritates the skin further and opens it to further infection making the problem worse.

Good luck.

Outranked by a country full of murder-spiders. America has truly reached a new low.

That's if you smoke while sleeping. If you sleep 8 hours it jumps to a cigarette every 8 minutes.
