Teddy used the new Remington T-Studio Pearl Ceramic Styling Wand to create the nautical-inspired “Yacht Knot” hair look that accompanied the breezy, ethereal runway collection for Luca Luca S/S 2011. www.ulta.com
The Essentious product line is organic, natural and dye-free — everything a girl with ‘challenged’ hair is looking for!
Essentious offers you four products in order to achieve that ‘camera-ready’ hair!
1. Gently moisturize your hair with ‘Exonerate’ – a shampoo with a fresh, clean, gentle lather which rinses clean without stripping or drying the hair.
2. For those girls with very dry or damaged hair — ‘Hydrate’ is the product for you! A conditioning, moisture treatment, Hydrate leaves the hair soft and smooth without weighing it down and perfumes your hair with a sweet, butterscotch scent.
3. ‘Rejuvenate,’ is a strengthening protein treatment with a delightful melon scent. It really helps mend slplit ends.
4. Everyone gets a case of the ‘frizzies’ now and then, but with a daily use of ‘Shine,‘ your hair is smooth, non-greasy and non-frizzy! ‘Shine’ also has a great butterscotch scent.
Thumbs up on the Essentious product line!
I have finally mastered the technique of teasing my hair! Up until I discovered the VERSI COMB, I just couldn’t get it right. The VERSI COMB amazingly makes it easy. It’s a brush, comb and teaser combined into one. It shines, volumizes, smoothes and separates. Melissa Peverini, celebrity hairstylist with over 20 years experience created it. Use its narrow side (with nylon and boar’s hair brush bristles) to separate & lift your hair at the crown, gently brush your hair back down toward the scalp, switch to the wide side (with nylon and boar’s hair brush bristles) to smooth the remaining hair over the teased area. Watch the videos on the website to learn more. Love it! www.versicomb.com
August is National Hair Loss Awareness Month. This brings attention to the matter and heightens awareness that hair loss is a serious concern to millions of individuals afflicted with the condition. Leonard Stillman, Director of Professional Services at Lexington International, LLC, home of the Hairmax LaserCombR Premium, put together some tips for taking charge of your hair loss and treating the condition early on. There are options for hair loss other than a baseball cap…thank you Mr. Stillman!
TIPS FOR TREATING HAIR LOSS
By Leonard Stillman, Director of Professional Services
1. Treat hereditary hair loss at its earliest stages:
Genetic or hereditary hair loss usually begins in the early 20′s for men and usually starts to show as a receding hair line at the front and thinning at the top of the head. From this point on hair loss tends to progress and not get better as shown in the Norwood Hamilton Classification of Hair Loss. By waiting and waiting to take action and not treating hair loss in the early stages, more and more hair follicles die off and once that occurs, no treatment will enable hair regrowth. Once the hair follicle is dead, it will never produce hair again … so don’t wait until it’s too late!
2. Make an informed decision as to when to treat hair loss:
Only when you are fully equipped with a good understanding of your condition and the treatment options available, will you be able to take charge, make informed decisions, and make a difference in your hair to positively impact how you feel about yourself. The internet is an excellent resource, but it is full of both good and sometimes misleading information. A few of the best resources are listed below. They are an excellent resource to get the best advice. They can help you make a sound decision as to when to see treatment for your hair loss.
American Academy of Dermatology
Bernstein Medical Center for Hair Restoration
Stanford Hospital and Clinics – Stanford Health Library
3. Realize that there are effective treatments available that can stop and in many cases help your hair to regrow:
Presently, there are 3 products that have FDA approval/clearance for hair growth and have been proven effective. Minoxidil is an over the counter ingredient widely available in many preparations, the prescription drug containing finesteride, and the HairMax LaserCombR, (pictured) a home use laser phototherapy medical device that has been proven to re-grow hair and prevent further hair loss. Also, there are many other products that are useful when used in conjunction with these products to help potentiate their effect. So you no longer have to have the attitude of, “nothing
works, so why bother”.
4. Visit your health care practitioner:
If you want some expert advice, then you should make an appointment with a health care practitioner for expert advice. Probably the best physician to see is a dermatologist who is an expert in the diagnosis and treatment of hair loss. If you need to locate a dermatologist in your area, access www.aad.org and they have a physician locator.
Remember, hair loss IS treatable! The best chance you have to help control your hair loss is to do something about it when you first notice hair loss is occurring.
The hottest hairstyle this season is the braid! Today’s braid is an updated version of the classic that’s perfect for a long day at the office or even a night out on the town.
Women’s Health magazine July/August issue (on newsstands now) shows a version that’s perfect for keeping hair off your face or for that dreaded “growing out your bangs” period.
1) Make a horizontal line two inches back from your hairline and separate that front section of hair. Leave the rest loose.
2) Starting at the left side of the head, just above your ear, French braid until you reach your right ear.
3) Secure the braid with an elastic and tuck the ends behind your right ear. Curl the rest of your hair with a curling iron.
Thanks to Toni Chayeb for creating the Sexy-Do hair accessory! This product really does work for me. Others, claiming to do the same (maintain and enhance up-dos & hairdos and create the bump that I so love) have fallen flat for me. Sexy-Do stays put, is light and easy to use. I do a fine job using it myself but…let me tell you…when I bring it along to the salon, my stylist really works fabulous magic with it. You can get a Sexy-Do of your own in Brown, Auburn/Red, Black, Blonde or Clear. sexy-do.com

The Silence HP hair dryers grabbed my attention earlier this week at the Premiere Beauty Show in Florida. This dryer is fab! I snatched one up. I got the Ionic model. I used it this morning. It operates silently. I actually listened to the morning news while drying my hair! It has a concentrated air flow which is great for styling. The cord is extra long at 10 feet. It’s energy efficient with a lifetime motor warranty. I learned that it is made in the US and is the only professional hair dryer made here. I am taking it to my salon next week to turn the stylists there on to it. They NEED to have these. How great it would be to visit the salon without hearing the stylist talking over the numerous hair dryers! The Silence HP was recently featured on the Discovery Channel!
