Kaley told the media she removed her long extensions and went with a short layered crop for a movie she filmed during the Summer break from Big Bang. In several post chop interviews, the actress confessed to loving her new shorter hair.

Penny’s Short Haircut For Season 8

Kaley’s hair created a major sensation not only with fans, but with Sheldon (Jim Parsons) who commented about Penny’s new very short haircut as part of the season premiere.

Sheldon had left on unknown travels at the end of Season 7 because he was upset about too many changes in his life.

Imagine his unhappiness at finding Penny’s hair changed when he returned. As Season 8 began, it was revealed Penny has permanently abandoned her job at The Cheesecake Factory along with her long held acting dreams.

She accepted a job as a pharmaceutical rep at Bernadette’s company while planning her upcoming wedding to Leonard. A short cropped hairstyle is well-suited to Penny’s more professional career.

A Variety Of Short Hair Styling Options

Although fans have reacted to Kaley’s short hair crop with both love and hate, she’s been showcasing a variety of styling options which range from sassy and sexy, to professional All of the short hair styles Penny has been wearing are well-suited to the character’s evolution on the show.

Recently Penny and Leonard attended an adult Prom. The beautiful blonde character’s hair was tousled and showcased an elegant crystal embellished headband.

Penny also attended a company related event with her boss played by the amazing Stephen Root. She again wore a beautiful headband appropriate for her attire.

Kaley Cuoco’s Short Hair Tips

Not everyone has hair which is well suited for Kaley’s short crop. It’s most compatible for fine to medium thick hair which is naturally straight or has just a slight bend. The cut can be worn by those with naturally textured hair although the fringe might not be appropriate for naturally curly, wavy, kinky or coily tresses. Kaley’s short crop was cut with a longer layered fringe, tapered sides and graduated layers from the crown to the nape of the neck.

While the short haircut is basically wash and wear, it does require trims every 6-8 weeks to maintain the desired shape and length.

1. Wet wash detangled hair in lukewarm according to your normal routine (Shampoo, Diluted Formula, Water Only, Conditioner Only).

For added fullness use a volumizing shampoo.

Unless required due to damage, avoid applying conditioner right at the roots. Detangle with your fingers.

3. Rinse out all the conditioner. Finish with a cool or cold water rinse which adds natural shine and closes the hair cuticle.

4. Towel blot to remove excess moisture. Styling products work best when applied to damp, but not dripping, strands.

5. Apply styling cocktail including a volumizing product to pump up roots.

If your hair tends to frizz include an anti-defrisant product to the cocktail. Detangle from ends to roots.

6. Create desired part with tail comb. 7. To add volume to the roots, pull individual 1-2″ strands up with your fingers. 8. Use a blow dryer and direct air flow from the ends up to the roots. This will build in more fullness. 9. Smooth bangs using a flat brush and a blow dryer. Wrap it left to right using the curvature of your head.

Note: Once hair is 100% dry, if you wish for a sleeker look, use a small barrel flat iron and run it through individual sections.

9 Types Of Hair Limbo

Thursday, July 4th, 2013

Introduction – 9 Types Of Hair Limbo

GinaMarie Zimmer - Long Blonde Hair Extensions - CBS - Big Brother 15

Although Limbo is not an official doctrine of the Catholic Church or any other Christian denomination, theologians from medieval times loosely defined Limbo as a temporary state a soul might enter before being green lighted into heaven or hell.

Believe it or not, many people experience their own form of Limbo when it comes to their hair challenges.

There are 9 types of hair limbo many people may experience at some time in their life.

Although there is not a historic or official term for hair limbo, in general it means a time when your hair is on the edge of heaven and hell.

Hair Fringe – A Type Of Hair Limbo

A good example of a type of hair limbo is the forehead fringe.

When a fringe is first snipped into place, cut correctly it can snuggle perfectly against the forehead and fall in beautiful harmony with the eyebrows.

When a fringe grows past a certain point it is on the edge right before it extends to the point where it becomes a type of bang hell. The fringe may take on a life all its own and become increasingly difficult to control.

During the time the fringe is in hair limbo, hard decisions must be made regarding whether to have them trimmed or suffer the hair hell of growing them out.

Long Fringe Hair Limbo - When Hair Bangs Grow Out

Growing out a long fringe to the point where it merges with the rest of the hair can literally take many months.

List Of Hair Limbo Situations

Although I’m sure there many hair limbo situations besides the fringe limbo, listed below are some of the most common:

1. Hair color limbo – When gorgeous custom created hair color grows out to the point where the roots are just days away from sliding into the bad root re-growth zone.

There’s always that limbo time when the roots progress from borderline to over-the-top bad.

The key is to figure out when the roots have passed out of limbo into hard core hair color hell.

2. Chemical straightening and/or relaxing limbo – Bone straight chemically treated strands offer many with natural textures a temporary vacation from constant hair challenges.

Hair limbo may begin when the chemicals begin to wear off and hair starts to bend, pouf or spasm out of control.

The limbo progresses to hair hell when mostly straight strands are encroached upon by a halo of frizzy, curly, coily or kinky roots.

3. Growing out a horrible hair cut – From the moment anyone sees a horrible hair cut in the mirror they’ve most likely entered into their own hair limbo.

Whether someone is trying to grow out a bad haircut, grow out an awkward length or just grow their hair longer, it can be a frustrating time.

While it’s always possible to exit from bad haircut hair limbo by shaving all the hair off or investing in fusion or clip-in extensions, there are limited options.

Usually the best option is patience and a box full of hair accessories which can help with the awkward growth stages.

4.When fusion extensions are getting stranded – Even when fusion style hair extensions are meticulously maintained, there’s always the hair limbo moment when the bonds start to fail.

Even the biggest celebrities such as Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson haves suffered through the embarrassment of leaving behind a trail of falling strands.

The key with hair extensions is to figure out the best way to maintain them so they last as long as possible without slipping into a type of hair hell.

5. Transitioning to natural texture – This happens for some people who decide to embrace their natural hair texture.

Whether this means learning to embrace natural curls, coils or kinks, the transition time can be an ongoing hair limbo.

For some, hair limbo may even feel like a type of hair hell, until the transition period settles in and a new care system is established.

6. Going gray – Some people decide to embrace their gray, silver or white strands and stop coloring their hair as a result. They may go through hair limbo as their natural color grows in gradually from the roots.

The gray hair limbo can be challenging for some people since the gray growing in at the roots may be a long and tedious process.

For most people, their hair grows 1/2 inch per month. Gray hair may also grow in with a rainbow of colors rather than just one primary hue.

Some people decide to speed up the gray hair transition by asking their hairdresser to color their hair a shade which blend with the incoming gray.

Others decide to hang in there and just patiently wait it out.

7. End of hair product life cycle – If you’ve ever found yourself hoarding bottles of shampoo, conditioner, hairspray or hair dye you know what I’m talking about. I

went through this myself when my beloved ARTec products started to disappear after the company was purchased by L’Oreal.

The actual period of hair limbo may begin when every last drop of the hoarded hair product is gone. At that point the long and challenging process of finding a substitute product begins..

Sadly, due to the long economic downturn which has been occurring for the past few years, many hair care products are no longer manufactured with the same quality or mix of ingredients.

As a result, some people may find themselves in an extended hair limbo while searching for replacement lines.

8. Hair loss – Whether hair loss begins gradually over time or happens overnight, there is a period of limbo when the causes and solutions are being sought.

Hair loss can occur due to a wide number of reasons ranging from aging or hormones to chemotherapy, thyroid disease or drug side effects.

There may or may not be an instant or easy cure. During the time a solution is being sought, the hair is definitely in limbo.

9. Recovering from hair damage – There are many reasons why hair becomes damaged.

Once it happens, there are limited options ranging from having all of the damage removed to undergoing intensive conditioning treatments.

Damaged hair may be in a limbo state for months or even longer as the strands slowly heal and recover.

Summary

Limbo can also be defined as a status where something is held up or and nothing can be done until another action happens.

Hair limbo is a temporary state many people may experience during different times when their hair is transitioning from one situation to another.

Linda Wang – Low Down With John Hawkes

Thursday, May 9th, 2013

Introduction

John Hawkes & Linda Wang On Lowdown - Courtesy Of Linda Wang - All Rights Reserved

I first interviewed the lovely Chinese American actress Linda Wang (王憲苓) by phone in 2000.

Note: Linda Wang Interview with HairBoutique.com

Although Linda has stayed in touch over the past 14 years since our first interview, I was pleasantly surprised to receive a recent call from her to update me on her latest acting project.

Low Down With John Hawkes

Linda told me she had just finished filming "Low Down" a film directed by Jeff Preiss.

The film stars John Hawke, Taryn Manning, Elle Fannin, Glenn Close and one of my personal favorites, Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones).

Written by Topper Lilien and Amy Albany the daughter of Joe Albany, based on her memoir of the same name, “Low Down” is set in the New York jazz scene of the late 1960s and early 1970s.

John Hawkes, an Oscar nominee for "Winter’s Bone" as well as for "The Sessions," "Lincoln" and HBO’s "Deadwood" plays legendary jazz pianist Joe Albany.

Albany found early success playing with Charlie Parker, Miles Davis and Charles Mingus, but struggled with heroin addiction later in life.

The film is an in-dept look at the life of pianist Joe Albany from the perspective of his young daughter (Elle Fanning) as she watches him contend with his drug addiction during the 1960s and ’70s jazz scene.

Linda Wang In Low Down

Linda (王憲苓) will appear in two different time zones in the film from 1974 to 1976.

As a restaurant owner, her character looks very different than the actress does in person. Her hair is pulled back and her make-up ages her significantly.

Second Time Around With John Hawkes

This is the second time Wang collaborated with Hawkes. They both worked on the HBO hit series "Deadwood."

Linda’s role in Low Down is a restaurant owner who is one tough cookie. When she interacts with John during the film, she shows a deep kindness at a low point in his life.

Linda, whose goal has always been to be the very best character actress , told me she was thrilled by the opportunity to work with John for a second time.

In her career, she believes "every acting opportunity, especially if it helps her grow in her craft, is precious." The chance to work with John was definitely career gold for Linda.

She told me "working with John the second time was amazing. I truly respect him as an actor.

John is someone I admire greatly in this profession. He is a great actor and gave this role everything I expected he would. Have is approval is a privilege."

Linda reminded me how careful she is to lavish praise on other actors.

With John she told me "she doesn’t say it often, but he is one of the great ones."

Linda believes the film is going to be spectacular and garner a lot of industry praise for John’s work.

The delightful actress also had great things to say about the other star studded cast, but was most impressed with the work of Hawkes.

Summary

During my initial 2000 interview with the lovely Chinese American actress Linda Wang (王憲苓), who is warm, charming and incredibly funny, she was very forthcoming about her goals as a character actress as well as her desires to continually work on her acting craft.

Although it’s been many years since our original interview, Linda’s dedication and love of acting has not wavered.

Note: Linda Wang Interview with HairBoutique.com

She is a very tenacious person who continues to push herself to improve her craft and strive to be the best character actress possible. Be sure to catch John Hawkes, Linda and the star studded cast in Low Down which is scheduled to be released in 2014.

Kaley Cuoco Hair Secrets

Thursday, May 2nd, 2013

Introduction

Kaley Cuoco Hair Secrets - Kaley Cuoco As Penny On The Big Bang Theory On CBS

Kaley Christine Cuoco born November 30, 1985 gained International acclaim for her current role as Penny on The Big Bang Theory (2007-present). Fans also wanted to know all about Kaley Cuoco hair secrets.

The CBS Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning comedy became the highest rated comedy on US television among adults 18–49 for the 2009–10 season.

Kaley first won the hearts of fans as Bridget Hennessy on the Emmy Award-winning 8 Simple Rules (2002-2005). She later starred as Billie Jenkins on the final season of the supernatural drama series Charmed (2005–2006).

Kaley Cuoco Hair Evolution

Kaley, has also become a media darling and is closely watched for her hair secrets, fashion and beauty trends.

Although Kaley, as Penny, has been blonde throughout the life of the series, her length, texture and hairstyles have transitioned along with the evolution of her character.

Penny’s Hair In First Season of Big Bang – 2007

When Kaley was first introduced as Penny during the first season in the Fall of 2007, her baby blonde hair was cut in graduated layers which framed her face and cascaded in sleek panels down below her shoulders.

Penny also had a long side-swept fringe which created a soft veil of hair falling over one eye. It was the perfect sassy hairstyle for the perky new neighbor across the hall.

Penny’s Hair In Second Season of Big Bang – 2008

As Penny integrated into the lives of Sheldon, Leonard, Howard and Raj her previous edgy layers grew out. Her hairstyles for the second season encompassed an array of fun filled hair looks which were in keeping with her character’s zany personality.

Penny’s slowly changing length and hairstyles helped to define her fun-filled laid back personality.

She also went on an official dinner date with Leonard. Although Penny and Leonard went to dinner early in Season One, Penny didn’t realize it was a date. Leonard was too afraid to ask her, so he led her to believe it was a group dinner.

Unfortunately Penny’s insecurity over her lack of formal education prematurely halted any chance of a romance with Leonard.

Penny’s Hair In Third Season of Big Bang – 2009

Kaley Cuoco Hair Secrets - Kaley Cuoco As Penny - Season Three - The Big Bang Theory On CBS

By the time the third season of Big Bang began, Penny had realized her true feelings for Leonard, who spent several weeks in the North Pole with the rest of the guys.

When Leonard returned he and Penny had their first hook-up. The romance between Leonard and Penny finally gets off the ground.

Penny’s hair, which was longer, was styled softer and more tousled which was a perfect reflection of how she had softened in her resolve not to be with Leonard.

She continued to wear a side-swept fringe. Her fringe was styled in a manner which would indicate her long range goal of growing it out along with the rest of her tresses.

In my opinion, one of the best episodes in the third season, is The Adhesive Duck Deficiency. The main storyline involved Penny slipping and falling in her bathtub and dislocating her shoulder.

As a result of her injury, a frazzled Sheldon had to drive Penny to the hospital. Even though his only experience with driving had been with a simulated driving program, he made a special effort for Penny.

Her hairstyle during the Duck Deficiency episode was a high ponytail with her historic side-swept fringe pulled up and back from her hairline. She had a few long fringe tendrils framing either side of her face. The tousled hairdo was perfect for the plotline.

Kaley Cuoco Hair Secrets - Kaley Cuoco As Penny - Season Four - The Big Bang Theory On CBS

Penny’s Hair In Fourth Season of Big Bang – 2010

As the fourth season of Big Bang began, it’s was obvious Penny’s hair had grown down to the middle of her back. The previous side-swept fringe is gone. Not only did Penny grow out her initial layers, she also grew out her bangs.

Even though Leonard and Penny broke up in the second half of Season Three because he told her he loved her, Penny is still an integral part of the gang and fits right in.

Her hair appears even lighter at the beginning of the Fourth Season which looks great with Kaley’s skin tone and eyes.

As Penny’s hair continues to grow longer, she experiments with side braids, tousled ponytails and top knots.

I am always impressed how the set hairstylists keep the core essence of Penny with her hair color and styles. Her hair has transitioned seamlessly from season to season along with her character maturity.

It would totally out of character for Penny to suddenly appear as a brunette or redhead. Her personality is tied to being the lovable, but somewhat ditzy blonde.

Penny’s Hair In Fifth Season of Big Bang – 2011

Kaley Cuoco Hair Secrets - Kaley Cuoco As Penny - Season Five - The Big Bang Theory On CBS

As the fifth season of The Big Bang Theory began, Leonard and Penny, who reunited in the second half of Season Four, are a definite couple.

Although they still struggle with their basic incompatibilities in brain power, career paths and lifestyles, their love for each other is obvious. They work hard to compromise due to the feelings for each other.

Penny’s hair at the beginning of the fifth season appears to be the longest it’s even been at any previous time. Her hair is also beautifully highlighted with icy platinum blonde hues.

Throughout the season as Penny struggles to understand her level of true commitment to Leonard, her hair reflects her thought process.

She wears her beautiful shiny blonde tresses pulled up in a variety of ponytails, messy twists and buns.

As always, Penny’s hair throughout the entire season looks sexy, sassy and perfectly styled for her character’s storylines.

Penny’s Hair In Sixth Season of Big Bang – 2012

As the sixth season of Big Bang began it seems Penny has decided to remain completely committed to her relationship with Leonard.

The underlying tension in the previous seasons between the couple have become much less obvious.

Both Leonard and Penny seem much more relaxed and comfortable with their feelings for each other.

As a result, Penny’s hair, while still long, blonde and beautiful, appears to be styled more casually than before.

Although she still pulls out the stops when she dresses up for a special event, her basic hairstyle for the season has been soft, playful and casual. The big question mark currently is where Leonard and Penny’s relationship is going for the future.

Summary

Will Leonard and Penny take the next step in their relationship? Or will they move in together, get engaged or finally call it quits?

It’s hard to imagine fans loving a big break-up. Leonard and Penny belong together.

Of course with a change in the relationship status, there is always an opportunity for Penny’s hair to evolve in new directions. A bad break-up might result in her going with a radical new haircut, hair color or style.

An engagement might result in more polished hair with eye towards a future bridal hairstyle.

Anything is possible. At this point we’ll all just have to wait and see how Penny’s hair and relationship with Leonard continue to evolve in the future.

I just hope that we have many more years of the show down the road.

Cut Hair Fastest Growth 2013

Tuesday, January 1st, 2013

Introduction

The Moon - Wikipedia.com

You may not be a believer, but astrology is my passion. World and business leaders have quietly used skilled professional astrologers for centuries to help guide them through rough waters.

At the end of each calendar year I plot out the best dates for the next 12 months to cut or trim my hair for fastest growth. Does it help? Yes, I have the measurements and roots to prove it.

Note: For more details – Astrology: Cutting Your Hair By The Phases Of The Moon

As a result, the best dates for 2013 to cut or trim hair for fastest growth are listed in this article.

I personally utilize astrology along with Feng Shui to provide me with an "edge" or advantage. Both are based on complex mathematical formulations and highly respected educational studies in many parts of the world.

While not everyone believes in the benefits of utilizing Feng Shui, astrology and the moon for the purposes of planning, there are many who swear by this combination.

Moon’s Sign, Phases And Aspects

Whether times are tough like current worldwide economic conditions or not, I utilize the moon’s sign, phase, aspects and eclipse periods to help me time a wide range of life’s events.

Farmers have been using the moon as a guide to planting and harvesting with documented success for hundreds of year. My own grandfather, who did not particularly believe in astrology, utilized the moon phases on his own wheat farm in Missouri with great results.

Does it work? It works fabulously for me and my family, closest friends and lifelong clients. I’ve been utilizing moon guidance since I was 16 years old.

Do moon calendars work for everyone? I honestly believe everyone has to come to their own conclusion. I will be the last person in the world to try and convince anyone.

A Blue Moon by jelaga

At the end of every year I sit down and plot the moon’s movement for the next 12 months.

Not only do I look at the key phases of the moon, I look at several other factors including lunar aspect, void of course moons (V/C), last aspects and even the impact of eclipses.

I often customize the moon charts to the individual natal charts which can offer a lot more detailed insight, but can also be very time consuming.

To share all of the detailed moon information I compile privately for myself, my family, friends and long time clients would be very time consuming.*

Listed below are a general listing of the fastest hair growth dates for 2013.

Fastest Hair Growth Dates For 2013

Trim or cut your hair for the fastest growth on the following dates listed below. You don’t have to cut a of hair. Just a little bit will work.

These dates are also helpful if you are starting a specific hair growth program and want faster results.

These dates would also be most beneficial when starting a hair vitamin program (HairTopia Hair Vitamin Facts) or a new hair healthy diet, exercise, scalp or other hair care program designed to get your hair stronger and longer as quickly as possible.

You can wear it like Ms. Odom without a fringe or part, of customize a fringe which flatters your face.

This updo hairstyle would work well for hair which is naturally straight or has been permanently or temporarily straightened. This style is ideal for hair which is medium in thickness.

Appropriate Hair Thickness

The key to this curl enhanced hair design is to have enough hair thickness to allow for a series of thickly rolled curls to cluster in a circular design.

To add strategically placed volume, fullness and length you may wish to play with clip-in hair extensions or fusion extensions.

It’s rumored that Khloé’ and her sisters often wear a variety of hair extensions for their various appearances.

Step By Step Hair Style Instructions

Follow the steps below to re-create Khloé’s updo hair style:

1. Start by cleansing your detangled hair in lukewarm water with a product designed to add moisture and to treat colored or highlighted hair with tender loving care.

You may prefer to utilize an alternative cleansing method such as Diluted Shampoo (DS), Conditioner Only Wash, (COW), Water Only (WO) or Low Poo.

2. After cleansing, rinse hair well. Apply a moisturizing rinse-out conditioner focusing the product on the areas of the hair which are most dry or damaged. If your hair is fine or thin you may wish to skip this option.

3. For extra conditioning substitute the rinse-out conditioner with a deep conditioner which is allowed to soak down into the hair’s shaft.

4. Finish with a cool/cold rinse to lock in moisture and add additional shine.

5. Towel blot to remove excess moisture. Apply a conditioning detangling spray or leave-in conditioner and detangle strands with a wide tooth comb working from the ends to the roots.

Note: If your hair is prone to frizzing apply a defrisant product or mix with your other styling products. Many stars are huge fans of Phytodefrisant.

6. For fullness, lift and volume throughout the crown, apply a volume enhancing product to the roots. Distribute a straightening balm to the rest of the strands distributing from below the roots to the ends.

7. Separate strands into 1" to 2 1/2" sections and blow dry with a boar’s bristle round or paddle brush.

Blow dry the top sections of hair using fingers to lift individual top strands and direct the air flow from ends to roots. Use the brush to turn the ends under around the edges and slightly in towards the neck as you dry.

Note: If hair is naturally curly, do not use fingers to blow dry since this can add to frizz. Use a boar’s bristle brush instead.

8. When hair is completely dry you may opt to touch up the strands with a straightening iron to achieve sleeker panels of hair.

You may prefer to use a curling iron (or hot rollers) to turn under the ends or add more volume and lift to the crown area.

Creating Updo – HowTo

1. Using your hands in conjunction with a comb or brush, gather a small section of hair approximately 4 inches in thickness at the top of the crown in the back section.

2. Hold the ends of the new section straight out from the scalp with one hand. Use a fine-toothed comb or small brush with the other hand to backcomb and/or back brush the hair towards the base in sharp sweeping strokes.

3. With the other hand, run the comb and/or brush down the length of the hair from the end towards the scalp in short sharp strokes.

Continue to backcomb and/or back brush the section until the desired volume is achieved. Spray this newly teased section with a firm hold hairspray.

Once the first section is completely teased, pick up the next section of hair and repeat the process until all of the back hair has been completely backcombed.

Use a firm hairspray to completely spray all of the teased hair.

4. Using both hands carefully smooth the teased hair making sure there is a lot of height at the crown.

Note: Backcombing should only be done for special events since the teasing of tresses can be stressful or potentially damaging for the ends.

Make A Base Ponytail At Crown – Add Curls

1. Using your hands in conjunction with a brush, direct al of the hair smoothly back from the hairline.

2. Gather the back section of hair up into a mid-back ponytail making sure the top section of the crown is pushed up to maintain maximum fullness and volume.

3. Secure the ponytail with a “hair friendly” Blax, Bungee or other elastic band. The gathered base of the ponytail should rest approximately 6-8" up from the base of the head right at or a little in front of the crown.

4. Position bobby pins in the same hue as the hair around the outside of the base to act as an anchor for future barrel curls.

5. Starting at the top of the ponytail near the base, lift a 2-4” thick strand of hair from the newly formed ponytail. Clip the rest of the ponytail temporarily out of the way.

6. Using your fingers or a round brush, carefully form a smooth barrel curl around the base of your finger.

For extra hold, use a good setting cream, gel. spray or similar, to prepare each section of hair before forming the barrel curl.

To add extra volume to each curled section, use Phytovolume Actif Spray or a similar volume enhancing product and spray each individual section lightly before curling.

7. Position the new barrel curl against the scalp and anchor the curl at the tail section with bobby pins in the same color as the hair.

8. Spray the first curl with firm hold hairspray.

9. Continue to form a series of 2-4” barrel curls that nestle softly into each other in a well-balanced circular formation. The key to this look is uniformity. Strive to make all the curls the same size and tightness.

Note: Ideally the updo should contain 6 to 8 same sized barrel curls. More or less curls can be created by separating the individual strands of hair into small or larger sections.

10. When all the curls are completely formed and arranged, spray well with a strong hold hairspray.

11. Apply a shine serum, shine spray or hair cream to seal in moisture and add a shimmering shine.

Although it’s not obvious, a few bobby pins or small combs in the same color as Khloé’s hair may be discreetly placed throughout the hair to encourage more strategic volume.

Summary

Khloé Kardashian Odom dazzles as the co-host on Fox/TV’s second season of The X Factor with stellar fashions, flawless make-up and stunning hairstyles.

Recently Khloé looked amazing in an updo hairstyle with an array of beautiful barrel curls nestled elegantly at the crown of her head. It was a classic updo style.

The updo hairstyle was sized perfectly to work in complete harmony with Khloé’s head shape and size. It was also designed to add a touch of height to her already beautiful stature. The updo was the crowing glory to the brunette’s picture perfect fashions, accessories and make-up.

Whether you love The X Factor or not, if you love great hairstyles, tune in to see Ms. Odom’s latest hair fashions. You won’t be disappointed.

Lightening Fast Hair Growth Lies

Wednesday, October 24th, 2012

Introduction – Lightening Fast Hair Growth Lies

Beautiful Long Healthy Waist Length Hair

Beautiful Long Healthy Hair Photo by HairBoutique.com All Rights Reserved

I recently visited a famous women’s website which has articles on hair and beauty as part of their many content offerings.

The lightening fast hair growth lies promoted in a long list of articles on this famous woman’s site included shocking misinformation about hair growth.

The following misinformation about lightening fast hair growth is listed below:

1 Tips on how to make hair grow really fast in one week by only drinking green tea. 2. How to make your hair grow lightening fast with only natural ingredients. 3. Secret fast growth hair masks used by celebrities like Kim Kardashian. 4. Secret foods for fastest hair growth. 5. Essential oils which make your hair grow lightening fast. 6. How to apply {{asin=B0046KG888,text=Mane & Tail}} for instant 3 inch growth. 7. Hair masks to instantly grow hair. 8. Grapeseed oil’s secret instant hair growth formulas. 9. Eliminating the natural hair growth process. 10. Top secret tips for fast hair growth.

Lies, Lies & More Lightening Fast Hair Growth Lies

Beautiful Long Healthy Hair

Beautiful Long Healthy Hair Photo by HairBoutique.com All Rights Reserved

Back in 1988 my own hair would not grow past my shoulders. Even worse, it was damaged beyond repair. More than anything else in the world I wanted long healthy hair down to the middle of my back.

I spent a fortune on magazines which promised all the secrets to instant hair growth. I bought hair care products, oils, herbs and a wide range of vitamins which all promised to give me fast hair growth.

Sadly, none of those products worked for me. Why? Because I believe all the hype and downright lies about growing hair lightening last.

Eventually I had a happy ending to my own long hair growth quest. I found the real answers to healthy hair growth and managed to grow my own hair to my thighs.

My hair has been consistently long and healthy since the 1996. The journey I took to grow long, healthy and beautiful hair was part of my inspiration for starting HairBoutique.com in 1997.

Real Truth About Lightening Fast Hair Growth Lies

Listed below are the real truths about lightening fast hair growth:

1. Genetics – Human hair is genetically determined. If you’ve been lucky enough to be born into a great long hair genetic pool it’s likely you’ll be able to grow beautiful long hair. If not, you may not.

As a general rule, for those people who are basically healthy and come from a good genetic pool, hair grows at a maximum rate of approximately 1/2 inch per month.

2. Exceptions To Hair Growth Rules – Some lucky people have been known to grow hair as fast as 3/4 to 1 inch per month. These people are the exceptions to the hair growth rules.

Others have been known to grow hair much slower, or not at all. These are also the exceptions to the general growth rate of most humans.

3. Only Hair Extensions Can Add Instant Growth – Nothing has yet to be invented which will grow human hair at lightening speeds. If someone tells you they grew several inches of hair in a few days, they most likely acquired wigs or had hair extensions applied.

4. Debunking Green Tea Miracle Hair Growth Promises – Maybe it’s possible (although highly unlikely) to grow hair lightening fast by only drinking green tea, but it’s more likely to rigger increased hair shedding.

When the human body goes through any period of fasting or detoxification, the normal hair growth cycles may be disrupted and hair may fall faster than it’s normal cycle.

5. Natural Ingredients Don’t Accelerate Hair Growth – Many people slather a wide range of natural ingredients on their head and scalp to trigger lightening fast hair growth.

If their hair has hit a cycle of little or no growth, natural ingredients may, in some cases, help to encourage hair to begin growing again. It is extremely unlikely rubbing raw potatoes or onions on the scalp will make hair grow lightening fast.

Beautiful Long Healthy Hair After Wash

6. Lies About Secret Fast Growth Hair Masks, Foods, Oils & Kim Kardashian – Just as natural ingredients don’t accelerate hair growth beyond the traditional 1/2 inch of growth per month, neither will hair masks, foods or oils.

Kim Kardashian may have long lush hair, but it’s a commonly known fact in Hollywood and the professional hair world that she wears hair extensions.

7. Mane ‘n Tail Myths – Over the last ten years I have read so many myths about {{asin=B0046KG888,text=Mane & Tail}} helping to grow lightening fast hair that I purchased the product to test it myself. Bottom line, Mane ‘n Tail is a product designed to clean hair, not trigger lightening growth.

While it claims to be a horse to human hair formula, if the shampoo actually grew hair lightening fast as many myths promise, it would most likely sell for many times it’s current retail value.

8. Eliminating Natural Hair Growth Cycle – There is no currently known way to eliminate the natural hair growth cycle.

Human hair follows a specific and genetically determined growth cycle. The growth cycle has three distinct and concurrent phases. The three phases are anagen, catagen, and telogen.

Each hair growth phase has specific characteristics which determine the ultimate maximum length of the hair. All three phases occur simultaneously. As an example, one strand of hair may be in the anagen phase, while another is in the telogen phase.

9. Magical, Mystical, Secret Hair Growth Lies – Although the world is bursting with every imaginable oil, pill, salve, ointment and secret formula, human hair which is healthy and in it’s optimal growth cycle will grow approximately 1/2″ a month.

Beware Of Miracle Products & Lightening Fast Hair Growth Lies

Don’t waste your money or secret hair oils, herbal formulations from the Orient or similar lightening fast hair growth products which promise overnight Rapunzel length tresses.

If it sounds too good, it is. Save your money and be prepared to follow the proven methods of growing long healthy hair 1/2″ inch at a time.

Stalled Hair Growth – Lightening Fast Hair Growth Lies

Many people ask me how I grew my own hair from a documented period of stalled hair growth.

Due to a variety of reasons my own hair was stuck in a no growth cycle and would not grow past the top of my shoulders.

The truth of everything I did to grow long, healthy maintainable hair is listed below:

1. Eat a super healthy daily diet including proper amounts of proteins, vegetables and hair healthy ingredients. 2. Take HairTopia hair vitamins which I specifically developed with a chemist to provide my hair with all necessary hair healthy ingredients.

Carrots Are A Great Food For Growing Naturally Long Beautiful Hair

Carrots Are A Great Food For Growing Naturally Long Beautiful Hair HairBoutique.com All Rights Reserved

HairTopia is not now, nor has it ever been advertised, as an overnight miracle hair growth supplement. While it will help support long term healthy hair, roots and scalp, it is not a lightening fast overnight hair growth formula.

The vitamins, amino acids and herbals works slowly over time in harmony with your natural hair growth cycle. I’ve been taking this healthy hair promoting vitamin for many years with consistently slow and steady and results.

There are only a few hair healthy vitamins on the market today which I believe are worth the investment.

None of them are miracle overnight growth products. They will help support healthy hair growth and regeneration over a normal hair cycle.

3. Drink lots of water every day.

4. Minimize consumption of caffeine, sugar and empty carbs. It’s hard to do, but it’s worth it.

5. Exercise 3-5x a week by walking on a treadmill or taking a brisk walk outside.

6. Snack on {{asin=B00016XLN6,text=Nori style seaweed}} which is nutrient rich and good for the scalp and hair roots.

7. Get 7-9 hours of sleep every night whenever possible.

8. Minimize stress as much as possible through meditation, yoga and body work.

HairTopia Hair Vitamins,  Aminos & Herbals

HairTopia Hair Vitamins, Aminos & Herbals HairBoutique.com All Rights Reserved

9. Have regular acupuncture and rolfing deep tissue treatments to keep my body healthy.

A healthy and balanced body will grow long, strong and beautiful hair.

10. Minimize use of hot styling tools such as irons, blow dryers, curlers. I only cleanse my hair 1-2x a month with diluted shampoo product (DS) designed for my hair type, texture and condition.

I also apply a moisturizing rinse-out conditioner focusing the product on the areas of the hair which need TLC on a regular basis between cleansings. I also do regular hot oil, deep conditioning and gentle scalp treatments.

11. I religiously trim my splits ends according to the New and Moon cycles and follow safe long hair practices which includes avoiding unfriendly hair accessories or clothing.

I am always open to experimentation with essential oils, DIY hair masks, herbs and homeopathic remedies.

However, I honestly don’t believe there is any magic available, at this time, which will grow lightening fast hair overnight.

Summary – Lightening Fast Hair Growth Lies

Great Deep Conditioner Product From Rene Furterer HairBoutique.com All Rights Reserved

Human hair when growing at it’s optimal genetically pre-determined rate will only grow approximately 1/2″ per month on the average.

Some people may be able to grow hair slightly faster and some may grow hair slightly slower.

Hair may grow slightly faster or slower depending upon other factors such as time of the year, environment, weather, stress, illness or other factors which can cause hair growth to stall or encourage accelerated hair fallout.

There is no such thing as magic oils, herbs, pills, potions, creams or similar which will trigger lightening fast hair growth.

If you have been promised lightening fast hair growth if you purchase a product, you may be spending your hard earned money on false promises.

Real products which may support healthy long hair growth take time, often 30-90 days to begin to show consistent new growth results along with regular long term commitment and daily effort. If someone promises you lightening fast hair growth and it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Erase Winkles Naturally

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

Introduction

Honey For Honey Cleanse To Erase Wrinkles Naturally

Honey For Honey Cleanse To Erase Wrinkles Naturally

Natural beauty experts have a little secret. With the right enzymes, acids, herbs and vitamins anyone can erase wrinkles naturally.

It’s true. Some of the most expensive beauty products in the world used to erase wrinkles are made with ingredients found naturally in the produce aisle of your grocery store.

Years ago my dear friend, Dr. Howard Rosenthal a renowned author, psychologist and natural foods experts told me about the miracle of papaya for keeping my skin soft and wrinkly free.

Erase Wrinkles Naturally With Two Step Killer Program

Dr. Rosenthal had a killer two step killer skin care program designed to erase wrinkles naturally and with minimal expense.

While I adore the Karin Herzog line of skin care products to help keep my skin looking wrinkle free, when I have time to follow Dr. Rosenthal’s program my skin looks fantastic.

Dr. Rosenthal’s secret two step program to help erase wrinkles naturally requires two key ingredients which are:

1. All natural honey 2. Fresh ripe papaya (organic when possible)

Step One – Erase Wrinkles Naturally With Honey Cleanse

Papaya Used To Erase Wrinkles Naturally

Papaya Used To Erase Wrinkles Naturally

The first time Dr. Rosenthal told me to start cleansing my skin with all natural honey I remember wrinkling my nose.

While I love honey on toast, waffles or in tea, I couldn’t imagine glop ping it on my face.

Yes, honey like {{asin=B000VK08OC,text=Raw Organic Manuka Honey}} is messy and sticky, but it’s amazing as a healing skin cleanser.

Honey is a natural antioxidant, anti-microbial and helps keep skin hydrated. When the skin is soft and moist it’s much harder for wrinkles to form. Honey naturally keeps the skin looking young and wrinkle free.

Follow the steps below to cleanse with honey:

1. Use a clean washcloth or cup hands under the faucet and wet face completely with lukewarm water. 2. Pour a dime sized amount of all natural honey onto your fingertips and massage into your skin. Make sure to apply honey to the entire face. 3. After honey has been completely applied and lightly massaged into the skin with the fingertips, rinse completely with lukewarm (never hot) water. 4. When all the honey has been completely rinsed off finish with a cool/cold water rinse. 5. Towel blot the skin to remove moisture. 6. Apply daily sun screen to protect skin from aging UVA/UVB rays.

For stubborn pimples, wrinkles or other skin challenges, apply a thicker layer of honey to problem areas and allow honey to soak into the skin up to 30 minutes.

Note: If you don’t want to go the all natural honey path you can buy products which have a key honey base or component such as {{asin=B000W7QGS6,text=Mario Badescu Mario Badescu Almond & Honey Face Scrub}}

Step Two – Erase Wrinkles Naturally With Papaya Mask

Once or twice a week skip the cool/cold water rinse honey cleansing step and apply a papaya mask. Why papaya? This exotic fruit contains the enzyme papain which is often found in commercial skin care products. Papain is known to soften and revitalize the skin.

Pineappple Which Can Be Used To Erase Wrinkles Naturally

Pineappple Which Can Be Used To Erase Wrinkle Naturally

Follow the steps below to make a DIY papaya mask

1. Peel and remove the seed from a ripe papaya. Be sure the papaya is not unripe since the acids are too strong to apply directly to human skin. A ripe papaya has the perfect composition. 2. Using a sharp knife chop the fruit into small pieces and mash the fruit completely. If you prefer you can use a food processor or blender to puree the papaya until completely mashed. 3. Apply to clean skin including the neck and hands if you wish. 4. Relax for 15-25 minutes while the papaya gently exfoliates the layers of dead skin cells.

The mask, which will keep for up to two days when stored in the refrigerator will also soften skin and any existing wrinkles will become less noticeable with each application.

Many people notice they’re able to erase wrinkles naturally after several weeks of consistently applying the mask.

5. Rinse the mask off with lukewarm water, finish with a cool/cold splash and towel blot. Apply sunscreen before going out into the sun.

Celebrities Who Swear By Honey To Erase Wrinkles Naturally

Demi Moore Claims To Use Honey To Erase Wrinkles Naturally

Demi Moore

Stars Demi Moore and Catherine Zeta-Jones claim that their wrinkle free skin is the result of honey treatments.

Some beauty experts doubt that’s the only treatments the two beauties utilize. However, their skin does look amazing and is wrinkle free.

Summary – Erase Wrinkles Naturally

Papaya is not the only all natural ingredients which can be utilized to erase wrinkles naturally.

Many beauty experts tout the value of utilizing pineapple which has bromelain as a natural ingredient for smoothing and softening skin.

Other beauty experts love the benefit provide by strawberries which is full of salicylic acid, a key ingredient utilized to address blemishes and other skim impurities.

6. For fullness, lift and volume throughout the crown, apply a volume enhancing product to the roots. Distribute a straightening balm to the rest of the strands distributing from the middle of the strands to the ends. If you prefer, you can skip the volumizing product and go with a defrisant only.

7. Separate strands into 1″ to 2 1/2″ sections and blow dry straight using a {{asin=B001T0HJCC,text=Conair 238 1875-Watt Gel Grip Styler}} or similar with a boar’s bristle round brush like the {{asin=B0012UX586,text=OG Ceramic + Ion Thermal Brush}} or a paddle brush like the Olivia Garder {{asin=B000SSRD90,text=OG Ceramic + Ion Supreme Large Paddle Pro Hair Brush}}

Blow dry the top sections of hair using fingers to lift individual top strands and direct the air flow from ends to roots. Use the brush to turn the ends under around the edges and slightly in towards the neck as you dry.

Note: If hair is naturally curly, do not use fingers to blow dry since this can add to frizz. Use a boar’s bristle brush instead.

8. When hair is completely dry you may opt to touch up the strands with a straightening iron like the {{asin=B002L9N67C,text=Conair CS60 Tourmaline Ceramic Straighter}} to achieve sleeker panels of hair. Separate strands into individual sections. Apply a heat protectant product before ironing with a {{asin=B002CYZDMC,text=Conair CS67G Infiniti Ceramic Straightener}} or similar.

You may prefer to use a curling iron (or hot rollers) to turn under the ends or add more volume and lift to the crown area.

Although it’s not obvious, a few bobby pins or small combs in the same color as Cat’s hair may be discreetly placed throughout the hair to encourage more volume.
