This is a free hand process of highlighting hair in which highlights are painted on from the base to the tip of the hair. At the base highlights are applied ever so lightly while at the tip the color is more saturated. This causes a natural beach bunny look. What’s great about this look is as the hair grows out the root is not as obvious as with normal highlighting techniques. This has become all the rage with models and celebrities . . . think Lauren Conrad.

After this the solution is washed out, a conditioning mask is applied the hair is blow dried. Once completed clients can expect to see smooth and silky hair that is ready to wash and wear for up to 3 months. It eliminates the time spent after showering to primp and prep hair.

Depending on the type you are going for, hair extensions can run you a pretty penny. Lasting up to 8 months most extensions bond individual wefts of hair to your natural hair by a heating iron. There is also the option for a traditional “weave” or sewn in extensions which has been around longer than heat bonding. These can be a better option as far as longevity goes, but the pain associated with the process during and after deters many from getting weaves.

One of the newest trends isn’t about nourishing your hair, instead it’s about removing it entirely! Since Kim Kardashian and other celebs have admitted their affinity for “completely bare” bodies, full body hair removal is in demand. To accomplish this look, the body is usually broken up into sections and using a laser, high pulses of light are emitted onto the skin to break down hair follicles.

Most clinicians that dispense the service say that the process is pain-free and will save patient’s thousands of dollars spent on a lifetime of razors and waxing.

The Straight Truth About Organic Hair Products

Organic Shampoo

Organic Shampoo Crowd Using Scare Tactics

Ya know, I’m becoming very suspicious of this “organic products crowd”. If you meet one of their advocates they are always full of wild claims and they are such zealots that they border on extremism. They always seem to want us to feel like we are killing baby kittens if we prefer products with chemicals in the ingredients.

Don’t get me wrong, I am very much in favor of trying to lead life my life in an environmentally conscious way, when there are clear scientific facts that justify taking action. To me if it is not backed up by scientific fact it is just somebody else’s religious belief system. It is almost like they know that if they don’t stretch the truth you’ll never become a convert to their religion.

The article below is a case in point. It is this article I ran across which claims that 60% of the chemicals that our skin is exposed can be absorbed into the body. What complete utter nonsense . . . if that be the case we would have all been dead by age two. Just think of one example, Chlorine it is in every pool that your baby swims in and is a very toxic chemical (ever forget to put those drops into the goldfish bowl?).

Modern hair care product manufactures carefully test every product that gets marketed. You need not be afraid to use off the shelf hair care products on you and your family. Don’t fall for the kind a malarkey contained in articles like this one:

Up to 60% of what you put on your skin (and on your children’s skin) is absorbed into the body.

Now go read the label on your kid’s shampoo or liquid soap bottle. Dyes. Preservatives. Synthetic foaming agents. Parabens and petrochemicals. Is that the kind of stuff you want coursing through their veins?
