Are Your Bald Spots Showing?

If you have thinning hair, I have one question for you…Have you tried Toppik? Toppik is a safe, natural and undetectable way to improve the appearance of thinning hair without harmful drugs, chemicals or surgery. We conceal our pores, our pimples, our tummies, why not conceal our thinning hair? Intrigued? Keep reading…

Tooppik Hair Building FibersToppik Hair Building Fibers are made from pure organic Keratin Protein – the same protein found in human hair. These tiny microfiber “hairs” are electro-statically charged to form a magnetic attraction with your existing hair – however thin – and blend perfectly to conceal the appearance of thinning and balding in seconds. Just shake and GO! It even works on peach fuzz.

Plus it comes in eight, color-matched fiber choices so you can conceal thinning hair on any natural hair color from snow white to jet black and every shade in between. A few shakes of Toppik above your thinning areas will disperse thousands of tiny hair-like fibers that will match your existing hair color, and bond with your own hair to conceal thinning and create a more natural looking, thicker, fuller head of hair.

And, no, it won’t come off! The secure bond stays put all day (and night) even in rain, wind, you name it – it won’t come off until you wash it out. Safe, secure and undetectable as close as two inches away…now that’s a solution we all like!

So say goodbye to the ‘sweep’ and the comb-over! If you are experiencing thinning hair and are looking for a natural, simple solution, give Toppik a try. It’s safe and easy to use, and it’s a great non-surgical alternative.

Bonus Points: The Travel Size is the perfect way to try the product for a few days without committing to a big bottle. You’ll see a natural, thicker looking head of hair (without chemicals!) in seconds and you’ll never have to worry about detection.

See for yourself! Here’s a quick video on applying Toppik…

Why wait? Eliminate the look of your thinning hair with Toppik. You can learn more by reading Toppik – The Instant Solution.

Babyliss: Why Porcelain Ceramic?

Babyliss Pro Porcelain Carrera 2 Hair DryerSure we know all about the benefits of Ceramic Technology, but why Porcelain Ceramic? Hey Babyliss, what’s the deal?

The Babyliss PRO Porcelain Ceramic Collection of appliances offers and advanced form of commercial grade Porcelain Ceramic integrated into the heating surfaces of their irons and dryers. 

Babyliss Pro Porcelain Ceramic Curling IronAccording to BaByliss, Porcelain Ceramic generates far-infrared heat, which is less damaging than conventional heating processes. Porcelain Ceramic’s superior heat distribution eliminates hot spots on plates and air outlet surfaces while negative ions reduce static electricity and assist in breaking apart water molecules, decreasing drying time. 

Babyliss Pro Porcelain Turbo Hair DryerPorcelain Ceramic, with its improved heat distribution and increased far-infrared heat and ion production, outperforms standard Ceramic. Porcelain Ceramic technology leaves hair healthy, revitalized, and shiny.

Better heat distribution and increased ionic activity? Sign me up for that!

A Curling Iron That’s COOL…

Question:
I need to find a good curling iron, can you recommend one?  – Vivian via email

Bed Head Tourmaline Nano-Ceramic Curling IronAnswer:
Right now I’m loving the Tourmaline Nano-Ceramic curling irons from Bed Head, they are some of the best curling irons I’ve seen, and I’ve seen plenty! The Bed Head curling irons have Tourmaline technology that generates about a bazillion negative ions, combined with Nano-Ceramic barrels to smooth your hair with gentle, far-infrared heat while they create curls. This translates into faster styling and longer lasting frizz-free curls without damage. I’m all over that.

I also am a huge fan of the fiber optic heat indicators. They’re not just cool to look at, they’re smart too. They change colors when you change heat settings, this way, you always know when you’re using high heat vs. low heat – what a great perk to keep you from frying your hair. (Don’t forget to use a heat protectant!)

If you aren’t sold already, this will get you: These irons have a three year limited warranty from the manufacturer. Most warranties are only one year, tops, and a one year warranty is great considering that it’s a heat appliance and you use it constantly! Some appliances don’t even have a warranty. Any manufacturer that offers a warranty that long is pretty darn sure the appliance will provide consistent results for an extended length of time.

State of the art technology for long-lasting frizz-free curls, fiber optic indicators and a kickin’ warranty? You really can’t ask for more in my book.

Swing by our Bed Head section to see the entire product line, it’s awesome. Thanks for asking!
