E-Salon: New Breakthrough Hair Color

haircolor

Are you tired of those at-home boxed hair coloring systems that leave you frustrated, and running to your hairstylist for help? Well, there’s a BIG secret your stylist doesn’t want you to know about: A new hair care company called eSalon.com that is infuriating hairstylists across the country… with one good hair coloring job at a time!

eSalon has great reviews from InStyle, Total Beauty, Good Housekeeping and a bunch of other blog sites. Their Facebook page seems to have lots of happy customers who rave about them as well. But you’ll also see hairdressers that are upset over eSalon’s service.

In recent press, eSalon’s color director Estelle Baumhauer said the company is fast becoming a target foroutraged stylists: “I’ve had outraged stylists come up to me and say, ‘How could you do this? You’re going toput us out of business!’”

Maybe that’s because eSalon offers professional salon services in your own home. Plus, it’s way more affordable and comes with the guidance of experts – so you get the full salon treatment without paying a fortune.

eSalon actually uses your personal hair details and color preference to blend up your individual dye, just like a salon. They use quality ingredients so you get silky, shiny hair with complete gray coverage.  It even comes with your name on the bottle – that’s how personalized the service is!

Then, they deliver it to you for $20.00. The order also contains a coloring guide from a professional colorist to help you through the process.

Women love going to the salon for a massage and personal treatment, but, these days, everyone needs to save money where they can. For me, that means coloring my own hair. This new idea of boxed, salon color is exactly what many of us were waiting for!

And it sounds like hair salons are feeling the heat. “Sometimes I’m reluctant to tell other colorists what I do,” Estelle says. “But for the most part I’m proud of the service we offer busy, professional women.”

SPECIAL OFFER: If you’re ready to say “buh-bye” to your hairstylist, eSalon gives you your first order of hair dye for just $9.95 (saving you 50%), plus, they’ll refund your whole order if you’re not happy! Click here to give eSalon a try!  —> www.ESalon.com

Unclotting Vitamin K

01

We’re looking at some new multivitamin products at work, and since my last post on Vitamin D, I was wondering what other vitamins I’m missing from my daily diet.  So everyone’s heard of Vitamin A, B, C, D, and E but what’s up with Vitamin K and why did we skip Vitamin F, G, H, and I?  The answer:  a German scientist who discovered this vitamin named it K because of its primary property in blood clotting (or “Koagulation” in German).

Where to Get Vitamin K

Naturally occurring Vitamin K (phylloquinone) comes from foods like green, leafy vegetables and green tea.  Some of my favorite products that are high in Vitamin K are:

  1. Broccoli
  2. Spinach
  3. Kale
  4. Romaine Lettuce
  5. Parsley
  6. Brussel Sprouts (New for me! I just discovered this while at a restaurant last Friday.  I never thought I could like this vegetable.)
  7. Collard Greens (so good!)
  8. Cucumber
  9. Tomato
  10. Blueberry

The other form (menaquinones) comes from bacteria in the gut (yes, healthy bacteria lives in our intestines).  Bacteria in the gut produce a range of vitamin K2 forms, each with side chains composed of a variable number of chemical compounds.  Menaquinones can also be found in food that contains bacteria like cheese and natto, or in animals that also produce the vitamin via their gut bacteria.

Hairstylist: Lorenzo Martin

Inspiration: Going into the night, Lorenzo was inspired by Old Hollywood to create a look that would complement Jennifer’s captivating Zuhair Murad gown. Lorenzo turned to a deep side part to modernize the Old Hollywood look of the romantic waves.

Step 1: Lorenzo prepped Jennifer’s hair with the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Triple Resist Shampoo and Conditioner ($4.99 each). Then while hair was wet, Lorenzo used the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Triple Resist Ultimate Strength Solution ($6.99) to reinforce the hair prior to styling.

Step 2: Lorenzo applied a quarter size amount of L’Oréal Paris EverCurl Sculpt & Hold Cream-Gel ($8.99) to condition the hair and prep it for being curled.

Step 3: Curled using a 1-inch curling iron and then gently sprayed L’Oréal Paris EverStyle Texture Series Beach Spray ($6.99) to each section helping to hold the curl and add texture.

Step 4: For each curl created, Lorenzo pinned the curl Continue reading
