SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY:

Saturday, November 24th falls between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and it also marks the third annual Small Business Saturday; a day to support local businesses around the country. Small Business Saturday was founded in 2010 by American Express in response to small business owners’ most pressing need: more customers. American Express provides support by generating awareness and action around shopping local for the entire day. So if you need a gift, a haircut, new shoes, a new concealer… Pick it up at a small biz! You can learn where to shop, and how to support local businesses in your area by visiting http://www.shopsmall.com

Here’s a great very short video to remind you of why you should SHOP SMALL

Speaking of small, I have a new favorite nail polish shop that is considered an “indie”. I’ll be reviewing a beautiful polish this weekend from SoFlaJo. Starting now you can get free shipping on polishes with a minimum $20 order. The best thing is that she sells minis for only $5 so you can try a lot of her fabulous polishes for very little money. I have Hidden Gem from Jody’s new Party Time collection and it’s H.O.T. I’m so ordering from the Year of the Dragon collection!! This is a way to buy small and get yourself some pretties at a great price.  — Marcia

Help for thinning hair with Keranique

I have been obsessive about my hair ever since I was in 2nd grade.  Up to that point I had pretty, slightly wavy hair that was long, about mid-back.  I had lots of friends and the boys always liked me.  But one horrid day I got the worst haircut of my entire life.  My mom decided to give me ‘trim’, and couldn’t get the edge straight – so she kept cutting, and cutting, and cutting.  Ultimately I looked like someone had taken a defective Flowbee to my head and turned it on warp speed.  I looked ridiculous.  And even worse, when I went to school, no one wanted to be my friend anymore.  I was shunned for looking like I had just cut my own hair with a rusty knife while blindfolded.  Needless to say, I have been obsessive about my hair looking good ever since.

Considering my hair ‘issues’, it was not a great moment when I was looking at a few photos and realized that my hair was thinning along my part.  It was getting pretty noticeable, and needless to say all my memories of standing alone at recess with no one to play with came rushing back to me.  I decided to try out Keranique.  They have a whole line geared toward thinning hair, with shampoo, conditioner, styling products, and treatments. 

I tried the Hair Regrowth Treatment ($25) with 2% Minoxidil, which  happens to be the only FDA-approved treatment that is clinically proven to regrow hair.  It’s the ingredient in Rogaine, although Rograine has 5% Minoxidilil which is the recommended level for men.  Keranique Hair Regrowth Treatment is for women as the recommended level for us is 2%.

It works. 

Please remember that if you are losing hair, you should see your doctor first.  There are lots of reasons why women experience hair loss, and you need to see a professional to make sure it’s not the symptom of a bigger issue.  Also,  this treatment is not for patchy bald spots, it is for thinning hair. 

The bottle has a dropper applicator, and the solution is a very thin liquid.  Every morning and night, I put about a half a dropper full directly onto my part.  It was wet going on, and I had to be careful it didn’t spill onto my face (just FYI, it tastes awful).  It didn’t make any difference in my hair style, I wash my hair every other day and it looked just fine after the Keranique dried. 

After about 15 days, the space in my part was less noticeable.  I had found that up by my bangs had more improvement, a good thing since that was the area with the most thinning to begin with.  After 30 days, my hair almost looked back to normal.

The bummer with this product is that you have to continue to use it indefinitely to keep the new hair growth.  So if it is successful for you, know that you will be purchasing this for life in order to keep the results. 

The complete Keranique system can be purchased online at Keranique.com.  You can also buy the items individually or in kits at HSN.com.  – Lisa
