So the inevitable has happened, you got out of the shower this morning ready to dry your hair and your blow dryer didn’t work. Left with a sopping wet head, you probably cursed yourself for not updating your blow dryer sooner. Not only have you left yourself with a problem, and a bad hair day, but you could have reaped the benefits of a high quality blow dryer all along. Well, don’t worry. Now is your chance to treat yourself to a high quality hair dryer and you can say goodbye to bad hair days forever.

 

The Farouk CHI PRO Hair Dryer is the latest addition to the Farouk CHI professional hair care line, and it is the same high quality hair tool product that you would expect from the Farouk CHI line. This hair dryer not only gives you the best features that you can expect to find in a quality hair dryer, but it also helps you protect the environment because you are choosing such an energy efficient tool.

 

The Farouk CHI dryer utilizes ceramic coils that provide a consistent heat temperature so you don’t have to worry about your hair heating up and burning with the uncontrolled coils of lower quality hair dryers. Ceramic coils also work to produce negative ions that are extremely beneficial to your hair. Negative ions go to work on your hair to lock in the moisture and dry it from the inside – out which means that your hair will dry in half the time reducing the chance for damage. Negative ions are also crucial for minimizing the frizzies and that annoying static electricity that can occur when you’re done blow drying your hair. Instead your hair will be shiny, smooth and beautifully healthy looking.

 

It’s important to have a comfortable tool when you are using your blow dryer every day. There is nothing worse that using a clunky, heavy blow dryer that hurts your arm. The Farouk CHI PRO dryer is lightweight and easy to handle. It has also been ergonomically designed which means that it will be extremely comfortable to use.

 

If you are in a hurry in the morning, and who isn’t? You don’t want to waste your time blow drying your hair. That is why the Farouk CHI PRO dryer uses moist heat and heats up quicker, drying your hair up to 40% faster than a regular hair dryer. How’s that for a time saver? And you don’t have to worry about wasting electricity because the low electric magnetic fields (EMF) means that you can dry your hair faster which saves energy so you don’t have to worry about the environment.

 

Other features like a cool shot button to lock in a style, two different speed settings, a CHI diffuser and a concentrator nozzle, just to name a few make the Farouk CHI PRO hair dryer one of the best hair dryers available today. So treat yourself and your hair and try out the new Farouk CHI PRO and you’ll never go back to an old hair dryer again.

Say Goodbye to Bad Hair Days

Do you have dry frizzy hair that has been over styled by chemicals, colors, hair dryers, curling irons and blow dryers? It can be very frustrating to have dry, damaged hair and not be able to style it because you don’t want to damage it further. Flipping through magazines, looking at the models with beautiful, soft, healthy hair, it’s easy to feel envious of their beautiful locks. But you would think that professional models who get their hair styled so frequently would suffer from damaged hair as well. So why does their hair look so amazing when yours looks fried?

 

Even if you have over styled and damaged hair, you can achieve the beautiful locks like those models in the magazines. The thing that they are doing differently than you is using quality hair styling tools and products. Take a good look at your equipment. Are you using top quality styling products and tools? No? Well it’s time you did. By investing a little bit in some quality items you will be able to style your hair every day without fear of damage.

 

Look for tools that use ceramic as a material because the smooth ceramic on a curling iron and a hair straightener provide an even heat which means you don’t need to be concerned about hot spots and burning your hair. The ceramic also allows your hair to slide smoothly over the tool which means it won’t snag or pull causing your hair to rip.

 

Another thing to look for is a tool with tourmaline in it. Tourmaline is a naturally occurring element that emits negative ions. Negative ions enter your hair shaft, actually drying it from the inside –out which means that your hair will dry faster and does not need as much exposure to the heat that can cause damage. Another benefit of tourmaline is that the negative ions will close the hair shaft locking in the hairs natural moisture. Allowing your hair to retain its natural oils help it look and feel healthier. Your hair will be bouncy, shiny and soft.

 

Tourmaline blow dryers are very effective at drying your hair in a fraction of the time as a regular blow dryer making them a great investment. Because if you can dry your hair in a fraction of the time, you are not only protecting your hair, but you’re saving yourself time every day. And who couldn’t use some extra time every day?

 

You will also want to invest in a quality thermal protectant for styling. These sprays allow you to apply a gentle mist on your hair that gives it extra protection from the heat of the styling tools. It also gives your hair a shiny finish as well. After straightening your hair, apply a smoothing balm that will smooth out any frizzes or dry pieces that are sticking up.

 

You may find it hard to believe, but you can actually help your hair to look healthier and more beautiful than it ever has just by using the right tools for the job. Invest in some quality tools and your hair will be healthier and bouncer than ever before and you can say good bye to any more bad hair days.

Taming Your Unruly Curly Hair With A Curling Iron

August 13, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Sometimes women with naturally curly hair have unruly hard to manage curls. These unmanageable locks can be even harder to manage than those of someone with straight hair since curls can be so much harder to work with. For those bad hair days with naturally curly hair you need to reach for a large barrel curling iron to tame those tresses. This may not be a natural reaction since you are wanting to tame those curls and get some kink out so it may seem a little odd to use a curling iron to put more curl in.

By using a curling iron on your unruly hair you are actually just using the heat and the large barrel to reshape your hair into its own natural state. The strands, which are either over-curling or straightening out are curled to one uniform size with the large barrel on the curling iron. It is also very important that the curling iron you are using is hot enough to be effective on your hair. If not enough heat is used then the curling will not effectively tame those unruly curls and get you looking good again.

Getting A Salon Quality Blow Out

July 21, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Many women blame their dry frizzy hair on their shampoo or even the weather, and sometimes these things do play a role in bad hair days. Another often-overlooked culprit of bad hair can be the styling tools you use. Using a cheap drugstore blow dryer can really dry out your hair quickly and this will create a base which is almost impossible to style. There is a reason why a salon quality blow out can make your hair seem so much more healthy and vibrant. Of course professional hair dryers do cost more than the typical drugstore models, but in the end you get what you pay for in performance.

Vitamins for Hair

July 4, 2008 by · Comments Off 

I, as you already know have fine thin hair, and am anxiously awaiting till I can get hair extensions! Until then I must drudge forward with my never ending bad hair days. I have tried every single product you can think of, vitamins, shaving my head (if it grows faster on my legs then, well, why not?) not washing for longer periods of time, which is not easy for us with this kind of hair. The very next day it looks as though we must have gone a week without washing it! The only time I was completely amazed at my hair and how fast it grew was when I was pregnant. If I only had the patience for 10 children I would have beautiful LONG hair. But until this patience and day comes I drink water, take vitamins, use what I believe to be the right hair care products but still am left unsatisfied with my hair.

I am going to start a vitamin regimen of Vegetal Silica & Horsetail root this coming Monday. If anyone else would like to try this please stick to it for at least 3 months and keep me informed of any changes in your hair, skin nails, etc. Here are what I found to be the benefits of both:

Aging starts deep within your cells, which contain collagen, the binding element that literally holds your body together. As you age, collagen deteriorates and loses its natural elasticity, resulting in loose skin, thinning hair and brittle nails. One of the main components of collagen is silica.
According to an article appearing in the Swedish newspaper Halsoblast, Joan Collins, Goldie Hawn and Barbra  Streisand all credit their youthful appearance to Dr. Kervran’s patented vegetal silica. Goldie Hawn was said to find Dr. Kervran’s special water-soluble extract of silica from spring horsetail extremely beneficial for growing thick, healthy looking hair. Joan Collins and Barbra  Streisand were quoted as using it for longer, stronger nails and firm, supple skin.
The horsetail in Vegetal Silica is freshly harvested in the spring, when it contains more soluble silica, due to the concentration of bioflavonoids in the plant at that time. The gentle water extraction process not only preserves the bioflavonoids, but ensures a high level of many essential minerals and trace elements, making Vegetal Silica an important source of other health-restoring nutrients.
The proven effectiveness of Vegetal Silica is due to the soluble silica content and the synergistic balance of all the trace elements. Clinical studies, research and personal testimonials have shown Vegetal Silica to have beneficial effects on hair, skin and nails.
Organic vegetal silica has received recognition in Canada. However, research from other parts of the world shows the effectiveness of organic vegetal silica goes much further. Here is what has been found:
· Researchers Sullivan and Volcani (USA) at Columbia University (1973) concluded that silica is an essential nutrient.

· Dr. C. L. Kervran (France) found silica to have a direct relationship with the absorption of all minerals, especially calcium.

· Holt and Osborne (USA) demonstrated in their research the essential role silica has in maintaining supple skin.

· Drs. Kervran and Monceaux (France) found that with silica supplementation fragile nails became normal in a relatively short time period.

For those of you interested, take a photo of your hair and skin, take Vegetal Silica for the next 3 months and then please let me hear your comments. It would be nice to spread the word that yes, indeed you can change your hairs appearance simply by taking vitamins. If you can try to buy the brand flora, it is one of the best and contains the required daily intake. (90 Capsules – $16.59, 180 Capsules $ 30.49)

Till next time Good Luck,

Niki
