    [–] What scientific evidence has convinced you that sulfates are bad for hair? betteroffinbed 3 points ago in HaircareScience

    Yes, anecdotally, sulfate-containing shampoos give me bleeding sores/scabs on my scalp. I tried a lot of different medicated shampoos until I realized that was the issue.

    [–] Where would you place your pet(s) on the intellect spectrum? betteroffinbed 3 points ago in AskWomen

    My dog just jumps up and bites my hand when I try to get her to play with a laser. She's a sighthound so she's genetically programmed to enjoy chasing little fast moving things, but she hates the laser and knows exactly where it's coming from. We don't play with it anymore haha.

    [–] [serious] what’s something you need to get off your chest? betteroffinbed 2 points ago in AskReddit

    Is there a survival center near you? Usually you only have to provide proof of address that you live in a town they provide support for, and maybe proof of income, and you can get a box of free food. I've used the one in my town many times. I hope things get easier for you soon.

    Until the bottom unscrews when you're not aware of it and then you're out $20! That's why I don't really like these things...

    [–] This YouTube guy Chunkz betteroffinbed 2 points ago in 13or30

    I uploaded some videos of my dogs to YouTube. Am I a YouTuber?

    [–] Ladies who are satisfied with their sex lives, how often do you masturbate? betteroffinbed 22 points ago in AskWomen

    You know women typically ovulate every month right? Hard to tell based on the sentence structure, haha.

    [–] A Shame To Think That People Cannot Control Themselves... betteroffinbed 64 points ago in trashy

    Rape is already illegal, but when you accuse a cop, especially in a small town full of corruption, how do you think that's gonna go? Especially if you're a woman who was arrested, because now your character as a person is questionable. It's fucked up.

    [–] Depressed, suicidal, or otherwise extremely downtrodden members of reddit: what is your go-to quote, phrase, or particular memory in life that keeps you going? betteroffinbed 13 points ago in AskReddit

    This is actually good advice here....if you can financially and otherwise support more than one companion animal. I grew up with dogs, and when my first childhood family dog passed away when I was 19, we had two other dogs at home too. I was really sad to have lost our old girl, but it felt like the right time for her to go, and having the other dogs at home really helped.

    I can't imagine coming home from the vet for the last time to a house with no animals at all. :( That's just not been my life and it never will be.

    [–] What weird things has a doctor said to you regarding your body? betteroffinbed 2 points ago in AskWomen

    My dentist told me I had spotted enamel and asked me if I had any high fevers as a child before I got my permanent teeth. I have no memory of that so...thanks for making me a little more insecure about my teeth.

    [–] What weird things has a doctor said to you regarding your body? betteroffinbed 7 points ago in AskWomen

    This is not a real thing, as a very cursory google search will tell you, haha. You just don't have a lot of muscle tension in your shoulders! Good job you. :)

    [–] What are some things that you are trying to improve about yourself right now? betteroffinbed 1 points ago in AskWomen

    I have a lot of things I want to improve about myself and I think I need to find a good therapist to help me with them. So, first of all, that.

    -Be less angry

    -Not feel like a piece of human garbage if I wake up at 11 am and still have stuff to do.

    -Be better at preparing healthy food options for myself, especially for breakfast

    -Get back to exercising!

    [–] This Reporter at the NBA Finals, 16 or 37? betteroffinbed 43 points ago in 13or30

    Wow I like everyone involved in this video. :) Great question from the kid and great response from the coach.

    [–] Going out with a man she doesn't like for free food then bragging about it on social media. betteroffinbed 1 points ago in trashy

    Honest question: How did you know that's what happened?

    I'm a lady going on Tinder dates for the first time in my life...I got dinner with someone the other night and I tried to split the bill with him but he wasn't having it. We ended up hooking up later, although that had nothing to do with it. But if I had later decided I wasn't into him, would he have thought I used him for the meal? Is it okay to get dinner with someone and then later decide you aren't into them, even if they insist on paying for the whole thing? I don't want anyone to think I'm doing this to them! I would NEVER. Eh. Dating isn't easy for anyone.

    [–] What is the worst thing you’ve ever said to your SO? betteroffinbed 1 points ago in AskWomen

    After my ex dumped me, we kept living together. We kept having sex, too, which is a bad idea but...

    One night I was standing on a chair moving something on the top shelf in the kitchen and he tried to engage in oral sex while I was doing that. I told him to stop and he asked why, as this was a pretty normal behavior for him, and I told him "Because I don't love you anymore." It felt absolutely brutal at the time, especially when just a couple weeks earlier I was crying and begging him not to end things with me.

    [–] Is Pureology shampoo actually sulfate free? betteroffinbed 0 points ago in HaircareScience

    Parabens are a preservative.

    You can read a summary of the health concerns regarding parabens [on Wikipedia] but the tl;dr is the research says they are safe, but the research is fairly shallow and not representative of actual paraben exposure in regularly used products. I don't think parabens have any impact one way or another on your hair, they just preserve the product and possibly disrupt your endocrine system.

    I mean, maybe you shouldn't because it's not a real product and does not actually work.

    [–] What is, in your opinion, the biggest flaw of the human body? betteroffinbed 2 points ago in AskReddit

    I feel like I'm the only person who doesn't experience this? I have so much anxiety, don't get me wrong, but it's mostly about future-related concerns, not replaying embarrassing things from before. Maybe I just don't get embarrassed easily. Hmm.

    [–] Indeed it did happen betteroffinbed 7 points ago in thatHappened

    Okay but before it is cooked, there could still be pathogens on it.

    [–] ... betteroffinbed 3 points ago in trashy

    Where did you hear that?

    [–] ... betteroffinbed 107 points ago in trashy

    So it sounds like what happened was the girl's older brother (also a teenager) tackled the guy and fled. When the victim was tackled, he hit his head and died from the resulting injuries. Not exactly beaten to death as claimed. Still absolutely horrible but one kid tackling him vs some kind of mob justice as implied by the tweet.
