On Sunday, the Green Lantern will unleash his wax-spinning powers not on the Justice League of America, but on Shampoo patrons. With his super-villain powers on the ones and twos, the Slim Shady sidekick and New York Hot 97 DJ will be the puppetmaster. Having built a reputation through mix tapes, the Evil Genius has not veered from his roots and is back on the streets with Invasion Part 3: Countdown to Armageddon. And similar to his releases, "Egg" at Shampoo should feature phat beats and the lyrics of G-Unit, Fat Joe or D12. English DJ-producer DJ Zinc, who first burst on the scene with "Super Sharp Shooter," will be at Fiso Lounge on Tuesday.

It was an illegal practice that went on for years, usually in an inconspicuous back room but sometimes right out in the open. And the crime typically went unpunished. Sure, maybe no one got hurt. But it was, nevertheless, against the law. Shampooing without a license. Now, though, under a bill signed into law by Gov. Casey, coif cleaners throughout the commonwealth can emerge, Prell in hand, into the light of day without fear of prosecution. The legislation amends an old law to permit people to shampoo other people without having a barber's license, although it requires that said hair washing must be done "under the supervision of a barber-manager or barber-owner.

I wanted to buy shampoo. I didn't think that this was an outlandish request considering that I have hair, and it needs to be washed on occasion. For the record: I have long, wavy, thick, non-color-treated, non-fine, non-greasy, non-damaged hair that I occasionally attack with a straightening iron. What I require is a shampoo that will: Clean my hair. Not give off a mosquito-attracting scent. Prevent Chia Pet head, which occasionally happens with the right mix of my wavy hair and humidity.

Nestled in the warehouse district between Spring Garden Street and the Vine Expressway, Shampoo easily could double as the hideout for one of Batman's archenemies. Not that any bad guys could get into Shampoo. To enter, you pass through a phalanx of security guards. One inspects your ID. Another walks you through a metal detector; a third frisks you on the other side. At Shampoo, no laws will be broken - only unwritten rules, such as the one that says a club has to be one thing.

We now have the baldness pill. Soon we may have the baldness shampoo. Scientists reported in June 1995, in the journal Nature Medicine, that they had created a way to deliver genes or drugs that could stop hair loss or restore color right to the hair follicle. These scientists had created the delivery system. The new genes or drugs, tucked inside microscopic bubbles of fat known as liposomes, would slide right down the hair like a firefighter on a pole. What scientists were waiting for was discovery of the right gene or compound to put inside those bubbles of fat. That piece of the puzzle has been solved with the Food and Drug Administration's approval last month of the first pill to fight male pattern baldness.

Rick Keuler loves contests. The 16-year-old always mails in sweepstakes forms, and when he sees a contest box, he usually fills out an entry. Last year he won $50 in a church- sponsored drawing. Rick is also the creative sort. At age 11, he asked the West Deptford Committee why there weren't welcome signs at township borders. Now there are. When he ran for class treasurer in sixth grade, he handed out copies of $100 bills with his picture replacing Franklin's. He still lost.

Few of us have the two or three weeks to volunteer at the Red Cross, but those of us without sufficient vacation time who want to help can still donate to hurricane-relief funds. Or better yet, we can party and donate to hurricane-relief funds. "$crew Katrina" isn't as angry as it sounds. The fund-raiser is tonight at Silk City with Steve, Kenny Meez, Trishylisicous, and Rasaan; the $5 admission charge will be donated to relief efforts. On Saturday at Shampoo, the 96.5 FM weekly party, "Hot Wired," will contribute its $10 cover to the efforts.

Put on a sleek, black ensemble and be ready to wait in line. Two nightclubs will open next weekend, one on each side of the Delaware River. It's like a game of nightlife musical chairs. Try to follow this: The Milkbar will begin operations in the remodeled second floor of Taylor's/Iguana Beach Club in Cherry Hill next Friday. And in the location that used to be the Milkbar, off North Eighth Street in Philadelphia, Shampoo will open the next night. Of the two nightspots, Shampoo is much larger in size and style.

Where does the time go? It's a question most of us ask ourselves just about every day. We make great plans. We write long lists. But come nightfall, too often we find ourselves in the same place: comatose in front of the television set, the "to do" list left mostly unheeded. But I recently realized where a good chunk of my precious time on God's green earth is going: the shampoo aisle. Here's what happened: I was in the drugstore buying shampoo and, like a dutiful consumer, reading the labels in the interest of making the best choice for my hair type and lifestyle.

Dear Polly: This is an old remedy, but it came to mind when my daughter was pregnant with her first child. Her clothes were getting tight in the waist but the rest of the outfit fit fine. I told her that when I was in the beginning stages of pregnancy and not yet big enough to wear maternity clothes, I would get a rubber band and loop it through the button hole of the skirt or slacks and wrap it around the button. This would allow for expansion during the course of the day and help to lengthen the time I could wear my current wardrobe.

In her West Chester University dorm room, Elena Hoffman has honey lotion, honey sugar body scrub, honey lip balm, honey for spreading on toast or mixing into tea, and honey shampoo. "It makes your hair feel so soft," she said of the shampoo. Her dorm room is also where she keeps her beekeeping suit, and, of course, her sash and crown. Hoffman was crowned the 2014 American Honey Princess in Baton Rouge, La., last month by the American Beekeeping Federation, which represents its roughly 1,300 members and advocates for the industry in Washington.

It's my first Christmas with my boyfriend, and choosing a gift for him is impossible. We've all heard the lament, what do you get the man who has everything? Well, my boyfriend is the man who needs everything. He's a musician and travels frequently. He'd be happy with his guitar and whatever clothes fit in a backpack. He doesn't think much of material possessions. Doesn't he know the true meaning of Christmas? I've heard him say he needs basics, like T-shirts, but if I get him a pack of Hanes, I'll feel like his mom. And while a man can give a woman lingerie, I can't bring myself to present my boyfriend with "manties.

Calling all kids to the dance floor on Sunday as the Baby Loves Disco monthly series returns to club Shampoo.

Doctors, nutritionists - even cereal boxes - have long been warning us to watch our salt intake. Now, we can hear the same counsel from the most unlikely of sources: our hairdressers. What once was the scapegoat of the curly-haired set - sulfates are the devil behind frizz! - has now become the moan of the mainstream. Hair products claiming they are free of sulfates are flooding the market, and local salons are giving them serious shelf space. The culprit for this mass-appeal movement?

YES, I HAVE peanut butter all over my face. No, it wasn't any fun. But let's put that aside for a moment. Mom probably told you that peanut butter sticks to the roof of your mouth. But did she also tell you that it could be used to remove stickiness, like stubborn price tags or paper labels? And did she tell you that banana peels could shine your shoes and relieve the itch of bug bites, that coffee grounds could add softness and shine to your hair, and that Coke could clean your toilet and remove oil spots from your driveway?

Shaft Fridays at Club Shampoo is the party of choice for many urban professionals, straight or gay. "I bring a lot of my straight friends because I know that they will feel comfortable," says 26-year-old Neil Grieves of Manayunk. "Shaft nights are geared toward the gay community, but we have a large straight clientele," says Shampoo DJ Mark Diaz. Shaft Fridays offer a music lover's smorgasbord, with rooms for every musical taste. Maria V., one of the promoters, spins Latin house and salsa with Diaz in the Aye Papi room.

The Vesago flyers distributed in the past - the ones with black leather-clad women or men in neck chains - may have given you the wrong idea. But don't confuse Saturday's gothic-industrial party at Shampoo with Shock Therapy, the first Friday fetish event at TPDS. Octavio Petrucelli - or Dr. Octo-Pussy - insists that "My Vesago events are not fetish events; I'd rather call my parties art parties. " The party includes displays, performances and vendors - and offers a place for all lifestyles to express themselves.
