Researchers claim to have found a way to treat cancer, that doesn’t cause patients to loose their hair. The treatment, which is led by Queensland University, involves shutting down cancer causing genes in tumor cells, without killing healthy tissue. It’s a technology which can inactivate individual genes. The team has observed an average of 70% reduction in tumor size, on a cervical cancer mouse.
This is big news in the development of cancer cures. Up until now, patients have relied on surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. And while millions have benefited from these treatments, they also underwent many challenging side effects, including incredible sickness and substantial hair loss.
To package these treatments safely is a complex process. The drugs currently have to be packaged in lipid rich carriers because they are unstable in room temperature. So clearly there is still much to learn and perfect in this process. But the researchers are so excited about their findings and what this will mean for future cancer patients.
As with most women I love hair! I have always seemed to want. Since I was a little girl I dreamed of having a full head of gorgeous sexy hair. Now as with many things in life, some of us are not given quite as much as we would have hoped.
We were talking about how those Hollywood starlets all seem to have these amazing heads of hair. I mean how can all of them have a full head of hair and be skinny, have perfect boobs and be pretty. She told me the Hollywood secret! They all have some sort of hair extensions.
From that point on I was hooked. I did my research on hair extensions. I found out the different types of hair extensions like clip on hair extensions, tape hair extensions, glue hair extensions and even the crazy expensive great lengths hair extensions. I did research on the different companies, grades of hair, lengths and even colors.
The more I learn about them the more I want to share my knowledge with the world about Hair extensions. People need to know the pros and cons of hair extensions, the benefits of each style of hair extensions and most importantly the costs, how to apply them and where to buy them online to save time and money.
I have personally tried almost every type and brand of hair extension in my life and can save you some time, money and damaged hair if you are interested. It is important to note that these companies simply want to sell hair extensions. The hair dressers want you to think it costs way more per strip or per tip than they really do. Many times the hair extension are sold at a + hair when in fact they are not. There are also types of hair extension that one can do by ones self with a little help from a friend or family member that cost a fraction of that of using a professional with pre-bonded hair extension tips.
If you love hair and want to save money and get amazing hair extensions then you are at the right blog!
When we get a batch of raw Russian hair in we always hackle out the short hairs, wash the hair while tangle testing, give it a quick conditioning and then hang it to dry. We like to the hair to hang dry because we can see the natural texture and our customers see how the hair will look on their clients.
A couple of years ago, we used to hang some of our bulk hair outside in the summer sun to dry quickly. We had to stop because one day we caught a homeless woman stealing our hair. She was grabbing those bundles as fast as she could, stuffing them down her shirt, into her pockets and didn’t even stop when the production ladies started yelling at her. We managed to get all our hair back from the woman and just sent her away. She didn’t even really want the hair for anything except there it was and it looked pretty. This was a pretty comical event and we laughed about it – after we got all our hair back.
What is happening these days is not so funny. Hair theft is not so new. We have been hearing scary stories out of Russia and India for several years now. But it is fairly new here in the US with businesses targeted specifically for their hair extensions. And these thieves are knowledgeable enough to go for the good stuff.
Lace front wigs are an excellent option for women who seek varied hair lengths, colors and styles without the dangers of damaging their real hair. The versatility and relative convenience of lace front wigs make them a sound investment; however, proper maintenance of the pieces are paramount to extending their structural and aesthetic longevity. Maintaining lace front wigs takes a bit of diligence, but is well worth the investment of your time.
1.Store the lace front wig on the foam mannequin head while you are not wearing it. Doing so will not only help the wig maintain its shape, but significantly lessen the chance of the wig knotting and tangling if kept elsewhere.
2.Store the lace front wig on the foam mannequin head while you are not wearing it. Doing so will not only help the wig maintain its shape, but significantly lessen the chance of the wig knotting and tangling if kept elsewhere.
3.Spray a non-oil based adhesive glue remover around the perimeter of your hairline before attempting to remove the lace front wig. Allow the lace to naturally raise from your skin instead of forcing removal, as this may cause significant hair breakage around and premature decomposition of the lace itself.
4.Shampoo and condition the lace front wig no more than once every two weeks, if possible. This can be done while wearing the wig or setting it on a mannequin head, although the use of cool water to thoroughly rinse the hair should be kept consistent.
Creating a lace front wig is a long, meticulous process that can take several hours to several days. Once the wig is complete, the excess lace that hangs over the forehead must be trimmed back into the wig for the most natural look. This is a delicate process that takes a steady hand, a good pair of scissors and a lot of patience. Since a lace front wig does not reach all the way around to the nape of the neck, this process will be shorter and a little easier than a full wig.
1.Find the center of the front of the lace wig and slide the thin hair clip vertically to mark the position. There should be two even lace pieces on each side of the clip.
2.Clip the hair on either side of the center-marking clip back using the two large hair clips. This will keep any stray hairs from being cut.
3.Cut away about a quarter-inch of the lace all around the front and sides of the wig. Do this using long, fluid scissor strokes to avoid jagged edges. It is best to cut away small portions of lace instead of all of it at once, since cutting away too much lace will ruin the wig.
5.Cut the lace back towards the beginning of the hairline in the front. The lace that is on the forehead will be the most visible, so it should be cut back all the way to the hairline. Pull the lace tight with your fingers while cutting to ensure even, smooth strokes.
Homemade facial treatments are an affordable alternative to a trip to the spa. A simple at-home facial can offer you the same relaxation and skincare benefits as its expensive salon counterpart. When you make facial treatments at home, you're enabled to use ingredients you have on-hand or select ingredients that will benefit your skin type. Since some commercial skincare products contain chemicals, perfumes and artificial colors, creating your own facial treatment enables you to by-pass ingredients that can result in skin irritation.
Step 1:Slice four grapes in half with a knife. Remove the seeds, if there are any, by picking them out with the tip of the knife. Rub the inner flesh of the grapes over a clean face while gently squeezing the grape halves. Leave the juice and pulp on your skin.
Step 4.Smooth the yogurt, honey and oatmeal mixture over your entire face, except for your eyes. Lay the heated washcloths over your face to cover the yogurt mixture. Leave your eyes uncovered and place two chilled cucumbers on your closed eyes. Recline in a chair or lay on a bed and relax for 15 minutes while the mask works on your skin.
Step 5.Remove the cucumber slices and washcloths. Dampen the other washcloth and wipe the remaining yogurt mixture off your face. Splash warm water over your face, then dry with a clean face towel.
With so many different types of wigs to choose from, selecting the right one can be a challenge. Not only are there aesthetic choices like hair length and style to think about, but it’s also important to consider how the wig is made. All of these factors impact both the look and feel of a wig and how it can be worn.
Full lace wigs are a popular choice for several reasons. The first of these is the natural look they offer. Unlike many other full wigs, full lace wigs feature a lacy base instead of a thick cap. Using a delicate lace cap allows the wig to be parted anywhere, making it look very much like natural hair. Full lace wigs can also be secured closer to natural hairline than many other wig types, which also lends a natural look.
The natural appearance made possible with a full lace wig makes them a great choice for people suffering from hair loss. These wigs can help restore the confidence that comes with beautiful, healthy hair, which is often a welcome gift after the devastation of losing one’s hair. Imagine being able to relax in public again, without feeling anxious that people are looking at your scalp. Choosing an understated full lace wig allows you to easily cover sparse patches or even severe hair loss in a discreet way.
Another benefit to full lace wigs is their ability to be styled. The durable lace cap allows for washing and heat styling without becoming damaged. It’s common for wigs of this type to feature hairs that have been applied individually, rather than in rows or “tracks.” This individual placement plus the wig’s flexible cap make it easy to gather hair into a ponytail or braid, without showing the wig cap or ruining the wig itself.
Flexible, natural-looking and durable, full lace wig are also a top choice for their versatility. Many other wig types are restricted to using a certain type of hair or conforming to a specific range of styles, due to the type of cap they use. Full lace wigs offer a much wider selection, letting you order a wig that’s fully customized to your needs. In addition to the wig’s color, length and style, full lace wigs can also have varying hair density and support many different hair types. This ranges from inexpensive synthetic materials to high-quality human hair. This is yet another way that full lace wigs provide a truly discreet way to wear a wig, since you can customize your wig to match your natural hair’s texture and thickness.
It is a always possible, after you receive your new full lace wig to have a hair stylist cut or trim the hair so that it frames your face better, if you prefer. Or, do like I do, have severalfull lace wigs in different styles so you can swap them out, depending on your mood.
