Weave glue, in the club, by the shady hair extension company

Keywords: clue, weave, weave glue death


Dailymail reported today that 34 year old Atasha Graham, a housewife in London, collapsed after a night out dancing.  The cause of death went in the books as “natural causes”, but Doctors are certain the woman met her fate when the latex based extension glue she used in her hair, leaked into her pores when she began sweating from dancing.    If you read the article, it kind of jumps all over the place-  there are 2 doctors who say “she died from anaphylactic shock” in one sentence, then the next are signing death slips for “natural causes” .   Sounds kind of wrong no?  If the woman died from a fatal combination of chemicals, maybe they should investigate a  little more before they close the book?

DailyMail: A housewife died after suffering a massive allergic reaction possibly triggered by the glue in her hair extensions, an inquest heard today.

Atasha Graham, 34, collapsed after a night out dancing at a club where her boyfriend was the DJ.

The hearing at Southwark  Coroner’s Court in London was told the allergic reaction may have been caused by the glue used to attach her hair extensions – but there was no way to be 100 per cent certain.

Home Office pathologist Doctor Michael Heath told the inquest: ‘I’ve seen cases where people using solvent to apply hair extensions has actually caused anaphylactic shock.

‘There are about 10 to 20 deaths a year in this country, many more in America. I have seen four in the last three months.’

The inquest heard that ‘fun-loving’ Ms Graham had been fine on the night out until she stepped through the door of her home in Lee, south-east London, at 6.30am, then suddenly collapsed and stopped breathing.

Her shocked partner, Fenton Johnson, called an ambulance and tried to resuscitate her while 999 operators told him what to do over the phone.

Ms Graham, the third youngest of nine siblings, never properly regained consciousness and died later in hospital. 

A post-mortem failed to find any abnormalities with her organs or substances which could have caused her death.

Her younger brother Carlus, who attended the inquest with his wife Marsha, said: ‘This is the most frustrating thing of all. We still don’t know what happened.’

The inquest heard Ms Graham had been drinking Hennessy brandy and Red Bull hours before she died, but only had a moderate amount of alcohol in her body which could not have caused her death.

Dr Heath added: ‘The hair extensions in Atasha’s hair were of a latex type. This may or may not be related [to her death].

‘If it is the hair extension normally a reaction would occur within half an hour of applying them or if some of the latex got into the solution because of perspiration and then got into the bloodstream.’

He added that sweat, for instance if she had been dancing in a club, could potentially have caused the glue to get into her bloodstream.

But the pathologist said he would expect an allergic reaction to occur shortly after the glue was applied and Atasha had been wearing extensions, which she got done in salons, since the age of 20.

After lengthy discussions with experts the pathologist said he was certain the cause of death was anaphylactic shock as the level of tryptase, which occurs naturally in the body during an allergic reaction, was 178 micrograms per litre of blood – up to 25 times higher than the normal amount of between two and 14 micrograms per litre.

However, he said he could not pinpoint exactly what was the trigger was.

Dr Heath added: ‘The diagnosis is correct, but I am not sure what triggered it.

‘If she had recovered we could have carried out tests, but the situation we have, tragically, we cannot take it any further.’

Now this takes talent!

I am speechless.  I’m an artist…I can draw, but to do this on a nail…wow….just wow!  I think I might have to go back and watch the skittles one.  I think she does cheetos next!   I can’t imagine how long it must take to do this since you probably have to wait for each color to dry before you move on to the next one, right?  Very, very impressive!!

The cat eye is back!


Keyword: cat liner, eyeliner

I find the best way to get this look is by using a gel liner, but to each his own right? Any way you do it, its going to look sexy. You can make it as bold or as delicate as you want.  Some artists call  a smaller version of this the kitten eye. To stay away from the Amy Winehouse  version (rest her soul), its best to not let the liner go passed the outside of your brow line. What I love so much about this liner look is that sometimes its all you need….a little liner, some mascara and you are ready to hit the town purring! Meeeoooww!

Someone condemn this chicken already & make it go away!

I’m over this Chick-Fil-A thing. wePRIDEny.com was one of the first people to bring you the story of this restaurant fowl when their awful and discriminatory practices were being exposed. We told you how The Muppets dumped them, and how Chick-Fil-A lied about the removal of their products and created fake Facebook accounts to support their hate. Ouch! Then a top CEO over there had a heart attack! I can imagine why!



The mayor of Boston said he’d never let them in his city and then the idiot known as Mike Huckabee declared August 1st ‘eat at -chick-fil-a’ day or as I like to call it ‘come show how hateful and ignorant us ‘Christians’ really are’ day. Hence the top pic, which I love. To combat this, many gays showed up at Chick-Fil-A on the 1st to protest the hate. My friend was at the Chick-Fil-A in Hollywood holding up a sign that read ‘Who do you think designed your wedding dress?’ and was pictured in the Park Labrea News Beverley Press!



There’s James in the plaid! So cute!


Now another weird chain of events has unfolded in the controversy. Anthony Piccola , a Chick-Fil-A franchisee in Nashua, NH has decided to cluck the system (ha!) and try to be welcoming to the LGBT community. So much so that when he met Ryan Manseau putting Pride Parade flyers amongst Chick-Fil-A literature (including their lit on the bible, etc.) he offered him a meal and a conversation. One that turned into Anthony’s want to donate money to the Pride parade in NH and another for him to set up a table handing out free food.





Aye. Well, I really appreciate the gesture, but I don’t know how I feel about this. Even if Piccola owns the Chick-Fil-A and decided to be welcoming to our community, the money he is making from his food-court-chicken is still going to fund the removal of our rights. And I kind of almost feel that him tabling at Pride is a bad idea. I know many people who may be apt to react badly before knowing Anthony Piccola’s intentions ( and many who will despite them, based on what I’m trying to break down and process.)


(Hayley don’t eat that! Dylan works for Wendy’s now!)


All I have to say is good luck to you man. I really hope all of these chicken places burn down overnight magically. I’m sick of hate and food being combined. What do you all think about this interesting turn?

From your mouth to your wrists

Keywords: braces, jewelry, bracelets



Most of us suffered through Middle School with a mouth full of metal all in hopes that eventually we would have a picture-perfect smile.  We lost out on years of tasty sugary treats, sticky bubblegum, buttery corn on the cob, and an endless number of other non-braces friendly foods.  Well these braces promise not to have any impact on what you eat!  Two orthodontists teamed up with jewelry makers to create these bracelets and you can even buy a case to hold them in, which looks like the ones we all got once our braces came off and our retainers came on.  They’re cute and colorful and won’t lead to any damage to your reputation or name calling.  Buy them individually for around $5 or pick up a couple in a pack.

I’ve talked about Aquage products before (check out how to get beach waved hair here). I use their hair spray on a regular basis, as well as their shampoo and conditioner.  I get compliments as to how nice the products smell, as if I am the one who invented how they smell lol.

The Hydrating Mist is a great product to use in the summer time.  Why?  Well, in the summer your hair is exposed to elements that may tend to dry your hair out.  The sun alone can do damage, not to mention pool water! Also, people tend to like to go blonder in the summer time so their hair can sometimes become over processed from all the lightening.


The Hydrating Mist feels so refreshing when sprayed on your hair.  I tend to use it before blowing out, but you can use it after the blow out is finished too.  It leaves the hair feeling so natural and so healthy. I also love the design of the bottle. It makes it really easy to spray without over-using the product.
