Pretty in Pink

We’re just tickled pink these days. With the sun shinining and nary a cloud in the sky we’re in the mood to forgo our dark winter wardrobe and add cheer to our wardrobe with brights. Whether you choose fuchsia, pale pink, watermelon or bubblegum, there is a hue to flatter every lady. ~Nola Weinstein

Hair Care Tips

Hair normally has a moisture content of approximately 10%. If your hair�s moisture content drops below this level the key is to increase the hair�s ability of attract and retain moisture. This is accomplished by using moisturizers.

Good ones have "humectants" that not only replace lost moisture but actually attract moisture and retain it in the cortex of the hair. Essential fatty aids (EFA�s) are great moisturizers. One of the best and most cost effective essential fatty acids is safflower oil. It is the kind you can buy to cook with. It is rich in EFA�s.

The scalp produces the best EFA�s called sebum. The problems is once the hair grows past the neck line or does not have direct contact with the scalp the scalps natural oils can not be utilized throughout the hair shaft.

You can manually replace the lost EFA�s by:

  • Placing 1 or 2 drops of safflower oil in your palms and rub them together.
  • There should only be enough to make your hands "shine" in the light.
  • Carefully take your hair (while dry) and "scrunch" the small amount of oil to the ENDS first and work toward the scalp.
  • Leave this in your hair.
  • 1-2 drops of safflower oil on dry hair is so small, you won�t notice it is there.

Doing the above as often as necessary will ensure your dry hair will have the proper amount of humectants to attract and reatin moisture. The key is that a small amount will go a long way.

Hot and bright colors are in when the temperature starts to rise to new heights and what better way to face the world on a hot summer night on the town that with bright, bold and alluring eyes.
First prime the underneath of your eyes and eye lids with some matte foundation which makes the skin better to handle. Get hold of a slanted brush and starting from the point near the nose, dab some of your favorite colors extending it out from the eyes outwards.
Then use a same colored eye liner and line the bottom of the eyes to match the upper shade. Use a contrasting color on the work you did above the lids extending outwards to go inline with the first shade of color you chose extending the curvature of the lids when closed till the mid-point of the eye and the temple.
With an eyeshadow brush, apply the same shade on the lower part under the eye to join with the upper side to complete the look, now you get alluring eyes. They may be too dramatic for a casual day, so skip the second shade to make it simpler and lessen the drama of your eyes.
