Not Your Mother’s Braided Hairstyles at Orlando Premier Hair Show

As women we are constantly looking for ways to enhance our looks. Sometimes we try to curl our hair a different way, try a new roller set, or maybe even a new haircut and color. Then there is also the option of adding accessories to enhance what you may already have going on. You can go to your local beauty supply, Target, or even Walmart to purchase clips, bows, scarves, and other pieces that capture your personal creativity. There was even a fad of wearing colored feathers a couple of years back that took us all by storm. As we utilized these different accessories we began to feel more stylish in our own way.

Head Lice – No Longer Reason to Keep Kids Home?

Head Lice

Head lice report says schools should ditch ‘no nits’ policy!

Head lice are a subject that tends to rear its ugly head about this time of year. A report released yesterday from the American Academy of Pediatrics, suggests children with lice should no longer be kept home from school. The crutch of the report concludes that keeping children home from school has been ineffective in preventing the spread of head lice.

Most schools have adopted a “no nits” policy which sends children home who have contracted head lice and won’t allow them back to school till they are clear of nits. But, the new report says that by the time scratching is happening, others have already been exposed to the little varmints.

“It’s only a bug on your child, not in your child like the flu or pneumonia,” study author Barbara L. Frankowski, MD, MPH, professor of pediatrics at the University of Vermont in Burlington, says in an email. “Healthy children — which includes children with lice infestation — should be in school learning,” reports WebMd. “We’re stressing still that healthy children should be in school” said Barbara Frankowski, an author of the updated guidelines published online in the journal Pediatrics on Monday. However, if your school has other policies and requires you to keep your child off school if they have head lice, you’ll want to find other ways to keep your child learning whilst they’re at home. This could be done through getting them to read some relevant books to their school studies, or by watching some educational online videos with them at home.

How do kids get head lice?

“Most cases of head lice are community acquired, often at sleep-away programs or parties, and not uncommonly in the summer,” Devore says. Lice can’t hop or fly. Instead, they crawl from head to head. “Totally preventing head lice is probably impossible, if you have a normally active, social child,” Frankowski says. “Head lice are a normal risk of childhood, just like colds and scraped knees.”

Lice are admittedly, nasty little creatures, especially when found on the head of your beloved little ones, but doctors agree they are not a health hazard and they don’t spread any disease. Also, having head lice is NOT a sign of uncleanliness. I know from experience behind the chair that Mom’s immediately panic with the diagnosis of lice and fear that they are to blame. It’s an irrational fear that is absolutely not true . . . so forget about it . . . head lice are not discerning creatures and can show up on absolutely anyone.

How can you help prevent lice infestation?

The most effective preventative advice when it comes to head lice is to teach your children not to share combs and brushes. Familiarize yourself on what to look for. Look for signs of lice on your children by looking through the hair. Check behind the ears and throughout the hair for signs of live lice. Also look for their eggs, “nits” that are clear in color and are attached to the hair shaft.

Frizzy Hair? Here’s How to Tame Frizzy Hair

Tame Frizzy Hair

Little known insider secrets to tame frizzy hair

As the summer days approach, so does the humidity triggering our hair to become uncontrollable and seemingly impossible to maintain. But don’t worry, it’s possible to turn those frizzy hair curls into beachy waves, or the “frizzy-ness” into a more sleek and smooth look this summer. This is a common concern my clients have in the heat of summer and I’m always excited to share these tips. Here are some simple steps to follow to say “goodbye” to summer frizzy hair.


  • Don’t wash your hair every day. Only wash it every couple of days to keep its natural oils. Learn how to create some second day hair looks.
  • Use a moisturizing shampoo which is low in alkaline. High alkaline shampoo tends to dry out your hair.


  • Always, always, always use conditioner.
  • If you have fine or thin hair use a volumizing conditioner.
  • Use  only a small amount on the ends and work it through your hair.
  • For all hair types, use a leave-in conditioner. This will help control your “flyaways” and protect your hair from heat.

The Right Product

  • Some of my favorite products are Moroccan Oil Frizz Control and Eufora Pure Polish. These products will control your frizz without weighing your hair down or making it feel oily.
  • Always use a product that has UVA and UVB protection.
  • Apply these products while your hair is still wet.
  • Emulsify a dime size amount of product in your hands to get an even application. Repeat till proper amount is achieved.
  • Everyone’s hair is different. After a couple of applications you will know how much product is right for you. But remember, less is more! You can always add more product but using too much can cause your hair to look and feel oily.

Hot Styling Tools

  • If letting your hair air-dry doesn’t work for you, or you just want a smoother look,  use hot tools.
  • Hot flat irons are great to tame down summer frizzy hair.
  • The hotter and more powerful the blow dryer, the better it is at smoothing your hair. The high heat will help make your hair smooth and shiny.
