Snooki’s No-No’s

June 24, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

Once the hit reality show Jersey Shore┬áhit television back in 2009, there was a lot of controversy. Whether or not the language, dancing and general actions of these “characters” were appropriate. Along with that controversy came the old trend of the poof. Nicole Snooki Polizzi brought back the style that many women used to style in their hair. This was the trend of the huge poof created by back combing. However, Snooki threw her own little modern twist on the style and brought her own chatter into the mix. Is this actually a good style for your hair or does it do more harm than good?

This isn’t a blog about Snooki giving out her no-no’s. This is a blog pointing out her no-no’s that she does to herself. First off, she may look cute and little and spunky, but Snooki is putting her body in danger in so many ways. It’s probably obvious to everyone but herself, too. Let’s begin with the orange skin she likes to sport. At the Jersey Shore, everyone likes to “GTL” or gym, tan, laundry. However, by looking at this celebrity, you’d think all she does is “TTT” tan, tan, and tan some more. How awful could that be for her skin? And now that the rumors are proven to be true, let’s hope she doesn’t tan while she’s pregnant! Looks like she should step away from the tanning before she damages her baby’s and her own life.

Teasing her hair isn’t in as much danger as her skin but she still needs to cool it with the backcombing. Snooki’s hair could be in some serious trouble in the next twenty years if she continues to poof it every day. Even if she doesn’t wear the signature poof at the crown all the time, she does so much teasing to her hair that could last a year if she didn’t shower. By the time she turns sixty years old, she might not have much hair to backcomb and style if she’s not careful.

Maybe Snooki could go back in time a little and reverse the use of her backcombing each day. She could even sport a fun little bob. After all, if she’s going to be a mom, she’ll need a “mom cut” to match; bring on the hair shears for Snooki! To turn her life around as a good mom, she’ll need to get rid of the orange skin and scary mess that she might call “hair and that shall conclude Snooki’s no-no’s.

Brazilian Straightening Or Flat Irons

November 10, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Many women are now turning to the Brazilian hair straightening technique to get those sleek straight locks that they wish they had been born with. But there is still a debate as to the safety of this hair straightening technique. There has been plenty of claims that the chemicals applied to the hair during this straightening process contain formaldehyde which can be extremely dangerous especially if the person getting their hair straightened has a reaction to this substance.

Of course for women who are nursing or pregnant this technique should never be used to straighten your hair. But for the rest of us it will be like the Japanese hair straightening method; something we should consider carefully. Anytime you choose to subject your hair to harsh chemicals you run the risk of possible complications and you will be placing a lot of stress and damage upon your hair. Of course if you do not want to take this risk to get straight hair there are plenty of professional flat irons that will get the job done with the harsh chemicals. These irons can be used daily if the proper temperature is used on the iron so hair is not exposed to too much heat.
