Help for Thinning Hair or Hair Loss

Long, short, bouncy, or sleek, for most women hair is way more than a bundle of fibers. It's an expression of your style and personality. But if you start to lose your hair, it can really freak you out.

Hair Loss Isn’t Just a Guy Thing
Whether it’s short- or long-term, women lose hair the same way men do. It might thin all over, or your center part could get wider and wider. You might even get a bald spot at the crown of your head. One thing women rarely have: a receding front hairline.

BEAUTY SCIENCE: Cocamidopropyl Betaine (CAPB)

Cocamidopropyl betaine (CAPB) is an organic compound derived from coconut oil that you can find in a many of your “natural” or “organic” skin care and hair care products. CAPB is created by mixing raw coconut oil and dimethylaminopropylamine, creating what is known as an amphoteric surfactant. When used in shampoos and soaps, it creates a thick lather. When used in a conditioner, it becomes an anti-static agent. Cocamidopropyl betaine may be plant-derived or synthetic, with either form

BEAUTY SCIENCE: DMDM Hydantoin and Imidazolindinyl Urea

DMDM Hydantoin and Imidazolindinyl Urea are formaldehyde releasers, which means they break down to form the toxic chemical formaldehyde. These ingredients act as preservatives to help hold product formulas together and prolong their shelf life, as well as prevent bacteria and fungal growth. They can be found in hair care, skin care and cosmetics.

Know your hair color terms!

Thinking of coloring your hair?  Before you consult your stylist, learn the terms below, so you'll understand their terms as you decide on your new look!
  1. Basecolor:  Color applied at the root area or all-over before a dimensional/creative color technique is done.
  2. Contrast:  Contrast is a value applied to highlights.  High-contrast highlights are much lighter than the surround hair and provide a dramatic look.  Lower contrast highlights result in a more natural look.

BEAUTY SCIENCE: Fragrance

The word "fragrance" on the product label represents an undisclosed mixture of various scent chemicals and ingredients used as fragrance dispersants such as diethyl phthalate. Beauty companies have to use the International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients (INCI) when listing what’s in a product. This standardized book of ingredient names means that lavandula angustifolia (lavender extract) is always lavandula angustifolia, regardless of whether a company thinks theirs is better, exotic, or magical. However, the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) exempts "fragrance" from having to be more specific, even though it might contain synthetic, preservative, or allergy-provoking substances that you might want to know about. It's a "catch-all" word, allowed by the FDA, for manufacturers to protect their "secret formulas."

Dry Brush Nail Art made easy!

Once you've applied your favorite color nail polish, do you wish you could jazz it up...add a little pizazz, but you know you're no skilled artist and you don't have any real tools?  Well... here's a dry brush technique from Essie that requires no skills or special tools.  As you watch...don't just look at the colors they use (although they are pretty), let your imagination run to your own unique style or simply to the colors you have on hand.  TIP:  Be sure you let the base color dry thoroughly before adding the color.  Also, the dryer the top colors brushes the better, remove most of the color from the brush so you don't get splotches or drips!

Secret changes to your Make-up Routine to make you look younger!


Make-up was easy in our teens and 20's, but as laugh lines start to appear, using the same make-up routine may make you look older.  Just as your skin care routine must change as you age, so should your make-up.  Time dries and thins our facial skin, so the products you used five years ago could look matronly now. 

Start your new make-up routine with a high-quality skin primer.  It fills in small wrinkles, making them less visible.  If you haven't ever used one, you will notice the difference right away.  Try Veil Foundation Primer by Bodyography.

Caring for a child's hair - Simple Do's and Don'ts

Ever wondered what the difference is between regular and baby shampoo?  Adult shampoos contain chemicals called anionic (like ammonium laurel sulfate) that create the lather most people want when they shampoo.  This can be very drying, but since most adults use conditioner and other styling products and have oilier skin than kids, it's not an issue. Be shampoo savvy when it comes to caring for infant and toddler hair washing.

BEAUTY SCIENCE: Alcohol

The presence of alcohol in skincare or makeup products can be devastating to your skin.  We’re referring to a drying type of alcohol that you’ll most often see listed on an ingredient label as SD alcohol, denatured alcohol, or, less often, isopropyl alcohol. These types of volatile alcohols give products a quick-drying finish, immediately degrease skin, and feel weightless on skin, so it’s easy to see their appeal, especially for those with oily skin. These short term benefits end up with negative long term consequences. The research (and we mean a lot of research) makes it perfectly clear: alcohol as a main ingredient in any skincare product is a problem.  But first we need to clarify what kind of alcohol we want you to avoid.

Summer Skin
During Summer we get to endure longer sunshine hours, excessive heat, humidity, and even worse, pollution! These can all affect our skin badly, so taking special care of our bodies during the heat is crucial.

4 Bold New Takes on the Classic Cat Eye

Cat Eye vs. Winged
Let's start off by defining the difference between a cat eye look and the winged look. The biggest difference between the cat eye and winged looks is the underliner. Cat eyes encompass both a heavy lining on the top and bottom lines to provide the full shape of a cat's eye. The winged look is only the top liner and occasionally lining of the inner corner. A cat eye is generally much more dramatic of a look. It's used for more dressed up makeup, like for events and evening wear. The winged look is often more casual and great for day wear. Below, we are going to see 4 new takes on the classic yet dramatic cat eye!

5 Beauty Habits You Need To Break

Not Removing Your Makeup
We are all guilty of doing it sometime or another. We always want to make sure we avoid not removing our makeup before bed to keep our skin clean and rid of all gunk and grime built up throughout the day. Not removing makeup before bed not only results in dull skin, but clogs your pores with leftover makeup, sweat and bacteria which leads to breakouts. To avoid doing this, make sure you have a few makeup remover wipes on your bed stand for those lazy nights.

Adding Volume to Fine/Limp Hair

What creates hair Volume?
  • The number of hairs per square inch of scalp. More hairs equals greater volume.
  • The thickness of each hair. The greater the diameter of each hair, the more volume you will have.
  • The flexibility of each hair (known as the bending modulus) . This is essentially a measurement of the stiffness of each hair fiber. Fibers that are stiffer will stand up more on their own contributing to greater volume. Fibers with a low bending modulus will tend to be floppy and limp.
