My skin is very fragile. All the collagen is gone and just rubbing an itch can break it. I don't dare scratch an itch. If I break my skin, it becomes a major adverse event.

A friend of mine started to get blonde highlights put into her hair as she got more and more white ones. Over time she got more and more highlights put in until she was a blonde.

Lucky me--time in the sun turns my hair blonde (and hides the grey)! Must be my Swedish genes.

My legs get swollen with tight, thin skin. My doctor says its caused by H2O retention. Anyway my cat scratched my shin leaving an inch long gash that got infected. My doc said to use peroxide to clean it and then keep it covered. My nurse sister said never use peroxide. The cut eventually healed okay with antibiotics. I hope my doc is more up to date on other issues.

A lot of people don't know that peroxide degrades in the bottle--an open bottle may just be water.

I test it by using a bit to clean my ears. If it doesn't "snap, crackle, pop" it has degraded.

You are handsome just the way you are.

It will make it a champagne blonde. My hair is salt and pepper grey. It took four tries, but I got it to all white for my son's weddding. I just LUV my hairdresser! Then I let it go back to salt and pepper.
