Are you experiencing “haircut regret”? That is when you cut your hair dramatically due to chemical damage or a life-changing experience and then regret it.

There has been a rash of sudden and startling short haircuts in Hollywood over the last year. Jennifer Aniston and Jennifer Lawrence confessed their pixie cuts were the result of hair damage. And not all short cuts are cause for regret. Michelle Williams and Hallie Berry are pixie dos! Halle Berry is a Pixie Do!

But if you are looking for a way to make your hair grow faster, David Kingsley has some answers. He is a trichologist, aVivn expert on hair and the scalp, and the son of Philip Kingsley who is known as the “Hair Guru. “Hair will only grow at its set optimum speed,” Kingsley said, “and that’s genetically predetermined.” Kingsley was quoted in a recent article in the New York Times, and confirmed that, “the average (hair growth) is about half an inch per month.”

Kingsley emphasizes that diet is important for healthy hair growth, “Make sure you’re getting enough protein, Vitamin D, biotin, iron and B12,” he said. In the same article, he mentioned Viviscal, a supplement that models and celebrities rave about. He said that while it can enhance hair health it won’t actually speed up growth. He also warned not you should not overdo supplements.

If you don’t eat a balanced diet that includes plenty of fatty fish, fresh fruit, and vegetables, then a hair supplement might make sense for you.  

Viviscal Extra Strength contains  AminoMar  a marine complex available exclusive to Viviscal supplements. Marine protein has been clinically proven to be beneficial for hair growth and health.  It is “derived from marine protein molecules combined with a blend of Horsetail (Stem) Extract and naturally occurring Silica”. It also contains Biotin, Vitamins H and C, and iron, which are all proven to enhance hair growth. Thinning hair is often a visible symptom of an iron deficiency.

Hair problems can be a reflection of your health. Any sudden or severe hair loss should be reported to your doctor.

Brow fix and you won’t believe the before and after !

Perfect brow after treatment -scroll down for the before photoEyebrow trends come and go, but a well-arched brow that frames your face helps to define your features and will make you look thinner, younger, and more beautiful.
The experts at NouveauContour Permanent Makeup have tips to help you achieve the perfect face-framing eyebrows:
With a ruler, draw an imaginary straight line from the outer sides of the ball of your nose to your brows. That is generally where eyebrows should begin.
Next, place the ruler on the tip of your nose as a point of reference, then take the ruler over to where your pupil is to mark the "peak" or the highest point of your arch.
Finally, place the end of a ruler at the outer nose and on the corner of the eye; this is where the brow should end.
For those who have permanently over-plucked, hair loss, or very pale eyebrows NouveauContour Permanent Makeup offers the perfect solution utilizing hypoallergenic mineral pigments to create the most natural permanent results when used with their devices. The devices' ultra-thin needles allow the trained technician to apply hair-like permanent tattooing to fill-in sparse eyebrows or create an entire natural looking brow. Their color palette provides the most natural looking brow to match your skin tone and hair color.
DolceDolce tip: Always go to a trained expert for any type of tattooed makeup application. Have the expert apply regular makeup first to make sure you like the technique. We have found permanent brow makeup, when applied by experts, to be very successful, but we do not recommend permanent lip makeup.

Fight thinning hair

Nearly 33 million women in the U.S. and Canada suffer from the deeply-upsetting problem of hair loss. Hair can start to thin for many reasons, so you should discuss sudden hair loss with your doctor, as it can be sign of more serious problems.

For many women thinning hair is a result of changing hormones and too much DHTDihydrotestosterone, a hormone that interferes with hair growth.
Redken’s New Intra Force hair treatment systems combine Zinc PCA, Vitamin E, and Arginine. According to Redken, the combination works to “provide the optimal environment for hair growth.” There are two Intra Force hair care systems, one for natural hair for colour-treated hair.
In both systems, Zinc PCA helps to reduce excess scalp oil and DHT. Arginine is an essential amino acid that helps promote micro circulation to help stimulate the hair follicles.
The lines consist of three daily-use hair care products: Shampoo, toner, and scalp treatment. There are also two additional booster products: Microboost for low-density hairlines and Hair Advance for hair that is noticeably thinning. There is also the Hair Densifer Mousse – a weightless thickening, styling mousse.
There is also a salon treatment designed to stimulate the scalp.
Redken says the new Intra Force System will give users thicker fuller hair in thirty days.
