Allergic Reaction to Hair Dyes

Did you know that a hairstylist must give you a patch test 48 hours before color service?
Did you know that an allergy to hair dye can cause swollen, itchy, red eyes? Worse news is that an allergy can develop at any point, even if you have not previously been allergic.
Today, health and beauty go hand in hand. Modern women are smart, savvy and increasingly concerned with their health and wellbeing, in particular the effects of chemicals in everyday products.
While rare (less than 1% of consumers are affected), hair color can cause severe allergic reactions. It doesn’t matter how long you have been using the same hair dye without reaction, one day your immune system could mistake and recognize hair color as something dangerous, and an allergic reaction could occur. What’s worse is that once this reaction occurs, it’s likely to continue to happen every time you use the product.
How do you protect yourself from a reaction?
The best way to protect yourself from an allergic reaction is to have your stylist perform a patch test 48 hours prior to having your hair colored to ensure that you have not developed an allergy and it is safe to color your hair as normal.
Why do allergic reactions to hair color occur and how is Koleston Perfect Innosense different?
There are two ingredients – Para-Phenyldiamine (pPD) and para-Toulenediamine (pTD) – that are used in approximately 90% of hair color shades, for their great coverage and lasting results, but unfortunately, on rare occasions can cause an allergic reaction.
For two decades, Wella Professionals scientists have researched how to formulate a molecule that reduces the risk of developing an allergy, while maintaining uncompromised color performance. The revolutionary solution is a new dye molecule, ME+, which still contains the part of the molecule responsible for color vibrancy, lastingness and coverage, but does not cause the same reaction as pPD or pTD.
More and more color lines are coming out better with their chemical combinations. In my salon I use Tec Italy which is 90% organic and 100% grey coverage. Find yourself a good educated stylist that can prevent any
bad experience with your visit.

My Body Rocker Waist Trainer

Waist training requires dedication and devotion, it is not something that will just happen by occasionally wearing your waist cincher and it will take time, it will also need maintenance. I often get asked if a corset will permanently reduce your waist by however many inches, the corset is an inanimate object, it won't do anything unless you use it to do what you want it to do. The key factor here is YOU!

The more you wear a cincher that cinches your waist, the more effect it will have. Waist reduction and reshaping requires discipline.  The best results are achieved with combining these key factors waist cinching using our pretty girl waist cincher. A healthy diet, drink lots of water and regular exercise. We recommend to wear the corset 4-6 hours a day.

I have been using it for couple of days so check back in a few months to see my updates.

A Teal September: National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

I wanted to share this great article for my female readers to read. It is very important to be aware especially we can teach younger woman. Cancer is a threatnening disease and can kill us. Go to your gyno and get check yearly with pap smears. Its an important date please don't miss it. (thanks Modern Salon Magazine for this article)
Your salon may not be awash in teal during September the way it is in pink during October, and it’s likely that you’re not even aware that teal is the signature color for ovarian cancer awareness. As National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month has just begun, this is a great time to educate yourself and your clients about a disease that is diagnosed in about 20,000 women each year.
The scariest part is that, in 60 percent of cases, the diagnosis doesn’t occur until the cancer has reached stage 3, causing death rates to be as high as three out of four diagnosed. So while it accounts for only about 3 percent of all cancers in women, ovarian cancer causes more deaths than any other cancer of the female reproductive system.
With its subtle symptoms, it’s no wonder it’s referred to as the “silent” disease. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), women should be alert to:
*Any unusual vaginal bleeding or discharge from the vagina.
*Pain in the pelvic or abdominal area (the area below your stomach and between your hip bones).
*Back pain.
*Stomach bloating.
*Feeling full quickly while eating.
*A change in bathroom habits, such as having to pass urine very badly or often, constipation or diarrhea.
Are you at risk? If you’re a woman and have your ovaries, yes. City of Hope lists these factors that put you at higher risk than other women:
*Personal and family history. Your risk increases if you or a close relative has had ovarian cancer or cancer of the breast, uterus, colon or rectum. If you have a strong family history of ovarian or breast cancer, you may want to pursue genetic testing to learn more about your risk.
*Age. Most ovarian cancers develop after menopause, and half develop after the age of 63.
*Reproductive history. Every pregnancy you have decreases your risk, and studies indicate that birth control pills and breast feeding may further lower the risk.
*Estrogen or hormone replacement therapy. Studies suggest that women who take estrogen by itself (estrogen without progesterone) for 10 or more years may have an increased risk of ovarian cancer.
*Obesity. Various studies point to a relation between obesity and ovarian cancer, and a study from the American Cancer Society found a higher death rate from ovarian cancer in obese women.
