NEVER LET LOSE A STRAND OF YOUR PATIENCE

NOVUHAIR 3IN1 PACK.jpg

Have you ever experienced a day wherein nothing seems to go well, that no matter how you try to choose the right path, you keep making the wrong turn? Just like having a bad hair day, no matter how many times you comb your hair, it just would not budge.

Life can be challenging at times but there will always be a way to resolve these challenges and come out victorious. Having this in mind will be easy to keep your patience and continue to move forward.

Just like losing strands of your hair due to factors beyond your control, you too can do something.

  • Eat healthy – Eating the right food can alter your mood. Having low-level of folic acid in your body can cause anxiety, hence, food such as asparagus, avocado, salmon, and almond are recommended to fight stress hormones.
  • Stay calm – Listen to comforting music and reading feel-good stories can help switch you to a calm mood.
  • Exercise – Exercise releases endorphins that can relieve you from stress and anxiety.
  • Supplement –Taking in Vitamins such as B-complex can alter mood swings.

Don’t let your stress factors contribute to your hair loss. Letting yourself succumb to anxiety will definitely show up to your follicles and this can lead to more hair loss.

Hectic schedules and pressure from work, not to mention the pollution and filth outside easily make you feel unease and, at times, irritable. Slow down a bit, have fun and relax. There’s no better way to begin with your mane.

Tip 1:  The stroke of a comb can give you a soothing feeling while, at the same time, help unleash the natural oil of your hair.

Tip 2:  Stay away from getting pigtails, hair weaves, braids and tight hair rollers, which can pull and stress your hair.

Tip 3: Avoid perming, straightening or coloring because they contain toxic chemicals that could cause damage to your locks.

Tip 4: Choose natural. Use NOVUHAIR topical solution. Apply liberal amount on to your scalp and hair. Massage it gently for -10 minutes to help permeate deeply from root to tip. NOVUHAIR is packed with 19 natural ingredients that help promote growth, nourishment and rejuvenation of your tress.

NOVUHAIR is available at Mercury Drug and other leading drugstores nationwide. For more information, please contact hotlines 4136570 and 09228830575 from Monday-Friday, 8:30am-5:00pm or visit www.novuhair.com

#GerifiedPH: Regroe Blue Prty

Just like how nails are made of a tough protective protein, hair is also a protein filament that grows from follicles found in the dermis, or skin. And according to wiki, Hair is one of the defining characteristics of mammals – until it falls down your shoulder, blocks the drain and never return again.

That is what you called hair loss, in a more scientific manner, Alopecia.

In world full of narcissists, hair loss is a living nightmare, a monster that could swallow up your courage to say Hi or even make an eye contact, or worse, leave the house without scarf, a cap or a wig.

Aside from the fact that I naturally have fine straight strands for locks, I’m living with mild-beta thalassemia – a blood disorder that makes me vulnerable to anemia which can lead to hair loss, add that to my current state of suffering from post-partum hair loss.

Did you know? A flu can cause temporary hair loss. The pores open up when we are hot and when we comb or tug our hair, follicles might fall off from the root.

Yes, one of the reasons of hair loss might be physical stress from flu or surgery that can shock the hair’s natural cycle.

Did you know? Too much Vitamin A can lead to hair loss.

Not just that, pregnancy, although some pregnant ladies have luxurious hair due to excessive estrogen in the body, giving birth is a physical stress which can lead to hair loss.

Minoxidil Regroe joined the world in celebrating the annual Alopecia Awareness Month with its Blue Party. It aimed at heightening awareness as well as helping understand what alopecia is all about and how to cope with this condition.

Did I mention that hair is made of protein? Hence, it only makes sense that lack of protein in your diet will shred your crowning glory!

This noteworthy event happened last September 21, 2017 at Dillinger’s 1903 Steak & Brew Greenbelt 3 in Makati City, gathered bloggers and media friends to help disseminate further information about alopecia.

The Blue Party event was Minoxidil Regroe’s way of supporting people who suffer from this condition.  In addition, blue is the color of Alopecia Awareness which is celebrated every September. Guests present on the said affair voluntarily cut their hair as a symbolic gesture of showing support to people with alopecia.

Vigorous styling and hair treatments can also lead to hair fall so cut some slack and let your scalp relax and breath by staying away from chemical relaxers, treatments with high heat and tight braids, weaves and corn rows. You can also help fasten the recovery by massaging your hair with Regroe 5% twice a day after bath.

During the event, an alopecia advocate and survivor shared her journey about her experience in having this autoimmune condition and how she surpassed her condition despite the stigma attached to it. “Alopecia should not be ignored as it affects not only one’s outer appearance but also one’s inner being. People do not understand that it is not as simple as shedding of hair to one’s scalp or body but an autoimmune condition that resulted to hair loss,” said Au De Leon.

Apparently, Alopecia just like beta-thalassemia is a lifetime battle. Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease, causing the body’s immune system to attack the hair follicles, resulting in partial or complete hair loss on the scalp and other parts of the body. The most common types of alopecia areata are alopecia areata patchy or coin-like patches on the scalp or other areas of the body, alopecia totalis or total hair loss on the scalp, and alopecia universalis or complete loss of hair on the scalp, face and body.

Did you know? Aside from a disorder of eating hair which is called Rapunzel Syndrome or Trichophagia, there is also an impulse control disorder wherein the patient is compulsively pulling their hair out. It is called Trichotillomania and yes, constant tugging will eventually lead to hair loss.

In the website of National Alopecia Areata Foundation, (www.naaf.org), the foundation presented that 147 million people worldwide are affected by alopecia areata with a lifetime risk of 2.1 percent.

Dr. Vinson B. Pineda, a renowned Filipino dermatologist, who brought Minoxidil Regroe in the Philippines was present in the said event. He shed light about alopecia and how Minoxidil Regroe can help people with alopecia in managing their condition.  According to Dr. Pineda, Minoxidil Regroe is the first treatment for hair loss and other cases of alopecia that has done wonders for both men and women in addressing their hair loss concerns. “Minoxidil Regroe is scientifically proven safe and effective to grow hair,” explained Dr. Pineda. “Consistent use of Minoxidil Regroe allows hair to grow back longer, regaining their lost confidence and self-esteem,” added Dr. Pineda.

 As part of Minoxidil Regroe’s efforts to educate the public about hair loss, the brand has continuously provided and conducted free hair and scalp consultation to its consumers with the support of its trade partners nationwide. This is Minoxidil Regroe’s way of raising awareness about the importance of attaining healthy hair and preventing cases of progressive hair loss that diminish one’s confidence and self-esteem.

21617574_1527453870631201_2110476712496712537_n.jpgI do not wish to be a damsel in distress who throws down her hair as an improvised ladder. I want to be a figurative ladder (or any equipment for that matter) that will elevate or spread awareness and fight against Alopecia with Minoxidil Regroe, in the hopes of making bullies stop shaming, but instead start to understand people suffering from Alopecia because like I’ve mentioned above, it affects the social status and confidence of a person.

Fight ignorance against Alopecia and start regroe-ing your hair!

Sports Barbers SM Mall of Asia: A Stylish Destination for the Male Grooming Generation #BarbershopMOA

With pompadours on the rise, man-buns making its way on the street, perfectly trimmed beards and facial hair making an appearance, it’s safe to say that male grooming is finally getting the attention it deserves.

But while men will admittedly make more effort by way of aesthetics, the process of getting the right look still prompts them to demand the simplicity and straightforwardness of traditional barbershops.

“Most women like being whisked away to a secluded world of pampering for their beauty treatments. The same can’t be said for men—most guys expect an efficient and clear-cut service—but not at the expense of style,” explains Arvin Amaro, Marketing Head of Sports Barbers Barbershop.

21984195_1482535491795840_651175515_n.jpg

This gave way to a new breed of barbershops—one that delivers the kind of service that they expect; one that essentially gives a modern take on an old classic. And while there have been a few cropping up here and there, none have been more accessible or as successful in providing the stylish sense that today’s grooming generation seeks than Sports Barbers.

With 13 branches all over the country, Sports Barbers recreates the traditional concept of your go-to neighbourhood barbershop and offers a destination that is modern and stylish yet stays true to what men have been used to.

Its ambience and service, strongly anchored on its team’s ability to provide everything from on-trend cuts to classic styles, is a compelling reminder of inherent masculine values—adventure, straightforwardness, humour and at the end of the day, natural good looks (as opposed to self-conscious preening).

The entire concept of Sports Barbers is to deliver the best cuts for clients, inspired by traditional hairstyles and the most stylish men. The brand’s crop of barber-stylists, a term derived from the fusion of Vidal Sassoon trained cutting and styling mixed with the efficient sensibilities of old-school barbers, mean clients can confidently step into any branch and emerge looking as dapper and effortlessly good as they can be.

“The idea is to create a go-to destination for men where they can expect the reliable, time-honoured techniques of traditional barbering and yet know they are in the hand of people who will be able to tell the difference between a short sides with brush top versus buzz crop or a pompadour versus a slick back,” ends Amaro.

Sports Barbers Barbershop has locations in UP Town Center, Ayala Fairview Terraces, SM Clark, SM Southmall, SM Bacoor, SM Bicutan, SM Cebu, SM Bacolod and its newest brand SM Mall of Asia.

#GerifiedPH: Hair Makeover at Vivere Salon

Katy Perry bullied Britney Spears a couple of times because she bald her head.

Recently, a video of a pixie haired Perry crying because of depression is circulating online.

Bottom line, I want a Katy Perry blue hair for a change!

Kidding aside, (although I really am eyeing a cotton candy blue set of locks for that extravagant transformation) when you can’t control the situation you’re in, cutting your hair is a good way of getting in control again.

You’re hair won’t complain (unless you want blue hair when in fact, your hair is previously treated. Did I popped your bubble? More of this later) or deny you, it will just follow.

It’ll somehow make you feel better.

That being said, if you feel bored or want a new adventure, enter the proverbial chateau of change, the Vivere Salon. There currently are 10 stations of Vivere Salon, one portal is located at 3F, Glorietta 2, Palm Drive, Makati City with Telephone Number: (02) 812-3364.

20046462_1468389009871021_962273479561183809_n

Vivere Salon team members are globally trained under the Vidal Sassoon Academy to create bespoke cuts that fit the taste and lifestyle of each of Vivere Salon clientele.

Vivere Salon trademark is instinctive, visual, modern and natural feel for what works, combined with a great sense of style and extensive cutting experience. At the end of the day, Vivere create cuts that you will love.

It’s guaranteed, you will never get out the same way you enter.

Daydream

I daydreamed of wearing a white cropped top, big pleated A-skirt with large print, high heels, with sunglasses on top of my blue hair while drinking pink lemonade, riding the shores of California (think of vintage themed Teenage Dream), when I was invited to try Vivere Salon at Glorietta 2. Finally, having blue hair is a tiny little step towards that road tripping dream I’ve been fancying about.

 

Reality

My hair was rebonded November last year and apparently, you can’t bleach your hair much when your locks are previously treated. It kinda dim the light and tone down the excitement so I just let my hairstylist take the wheel and do what she think would suit me best based on my facial features and current hair condition.

20106335_1468389156537673_6572793915068773046_n20155965_1468389226537666_2793219641838474508_n

After settling down, my Senior Hairstylist, Ms. Meg Mendoza approached me and  evaluated my hair – thin fine hair, and moderately dry from previous treatment.

Shampooing to remove oil and dirt came next before a haircut.

My face framing layered haircut was made to volumize and heighten my flat crown.

20106710_1468389483204307_5645566367964462849_n20032027_1468389723204283_1730482912215052531_n

She made a diamond highlight using Dark Blonde Chocolate Gold color on my top to create an illusion of volume. This highlight will compliment the layered shape of the haircut.

Base color was applied afterwards using Golden Dark Blonde color.

 

20106491_1468389653204290_5500142844485722640_n.jpgThe highlight color was toned down using Dark Blonde Chocolate Gold.

The service ended with a deep repair treatment for colored and chemically damaged hair.

The experience for me was relaxing. My hairstylist is very-friendly, her assistants were accommodating – offering me drinks, upper back massage during my waiting time and several gentle mindful hair-washes – no tagging of hair, or pulling of roots. My top didn’t have drips of water nor did I have to towel my face dry because they made preventive measures (sorry for my safety officer terms used as that is what I really think that transpired) – extra careful on washing my hair to prevent water from splashing on my face, a towel on my back and a towel ready whenever I rise on my seat. These small simple gestures makes a huge difference when it comes to visiting salon, and I really appreciate their careful effort in making sure that I am comfortable all the way.

20374296_1478034692239786_1047652280186909219_n

My appreciation for my hairstylist’s caring, honest and correct evaluation of my hair made me more happy about this change.

You know what’s great about hitting rock bottom, Eddie? There’s only one way left to go, and that’s UP! – Buster Moon, Moon Theater Producer

20106274_1468401516536437_6687864970338447005_n.jpg

I didn’t get my blue hair – not yet at least. But I really love this drastic, about-time change in me. I can’t wait for my new adventures!

“At the end of the day, it’s still about creating a cut that our clients will love. It’s finding that right balance between wash and wear as well as unique and edgy; confident in the knowledge that every day, they will wake up with hair that doesn’t have to get blown out or ironed or set to look great.” – Ramon De Ubago III, CEO of Vivere Salon

Natural is still best to de-stress your tress

Striking a life balance is no easy task to do. It requires hard work and dedication which sometimes can be strenuous to achieve. Can you imagine how overtaxing it is to juggle between your career and providing for your loved ones?

20496489_1551619648216246_776018340_n.jpg

Studies have shown that stress is commonly caused by interrelationships, such as having to deal with work issues and family-related complications. If left unresolved over time, it could lead to immune deficiency, which later on, might cause other parts of our body to show signs of disruption like hair loss.

Many of us could attest to that. It’s like always autumnal equinox whenever we experience chronic hair fall, most especially at the prime of stress. At its peak, our white blood cells attack no less than the follicles, thus causing alopecia. What’s more, anxiety could drive your mane into a prolonged resting phase, which is called telogen effluvium.

20504171_1551619661549578_867542478_n.jpg

Stress experienced by the body or beyond our coping resources could trigger hair loss symptoms, which, if not addressed properly, could result to early baldness. Worried about this? Fret no more. You can beat it simply by relaxing, eating or flexing some muscles.

 

Never underestimate the power of sleep. If you feel that you are over your head in dealing with anxieties, choose to rest it off for a while and recharge.

 

Let’s get physical to de-stress. It helps release endorphins, or what is known as the happy hormones, that can be beneficial in relieving the tension.

 

How about rewarding yourself? Watch the timeless story of Tony and Maria and their fateful love affair as the electrifying classic WEST SIDE STORY musical premieres at The Theatre at Solaire on August 10. Read more on http://www.novuhair.com/2017/07/novuhair-natures-answer-to-hair-loss-supports-west-side-story-musical-at-the-theatre-solaire/

 

Eat more fruits and veggies. Having these as a staple in your diet will bolster your immunity from disease, which in turn, knock out stress. We can all benefit from the vitamins and minerals of the healthy food we consume.

 

It’s best to complement these simple regimens with a topical solution that’s safe to keep your crowning glory at its robust state. NOVUHAIR, nature’s answer to hair loss, is made up of 19 natural ingredients that work in synergy to help remedy stress-related hair loss and promote healthy tress and scalp.

 

The challenge in preventing these mane problems is to keep your locks healthy with proper care and let it grow naturally sans subjecting your hair to temporary relief with the use of harmful chemicals. Go natural.

 

NOVUHAIR contains natural extracts, herbal oils and essences, such as lavender that is also known to relieve stress. It also has a scent that leaves a calming effect.

Head of the family: not just a provider but a father

19244452_1503021163076095_1357533741_n.jpg

Imagine working in a world where time seems to just past by and where almost everything changes instantly. Think of having to keep up with an environment where it costs a lot to stop or even slow down for a while. Sound taxing, right? What more of prioritizing the welfare of everybody in the household on top of it all.

But every head of the family doesn’t mind about it. Fathers are said to be the pillars of our homes. They toil sun up to sun down to give our needs and desires.

Some of them go abroad with tears in their eyes because they will be physically separated from their families. However, there is a certain joy in their hearts knowing that they will be able to provide for their loved ones back home.

To honor these gallant paternal men and let them feel how extraordinary they are and important their sacrifices are for their families, Father’s Day has been a yearly universal event. As we mark again this special occasion on Sunday, June 18, 2017, our applause and recognition will never be enough to show them how grateful we are to have them in our lives.

Our dads, together with our moms, take good care of us the moment we’re born. They are the ones who provide everything we need for our everyday lives. From infancy up to adulthood, they feed and clothe us.

As we take our initial baby steps, our patriarchs guide and lead us in the right direction. When we stumble and fall, they assist us to rise and move on. In times of danger or any threat, they shield us from any harm.

All of these, they do out of unconditional love. Their selflessness, though, has its own toll. Working tirelessly could lead to high levels of stress constantly and problems not only mentally, but physically, too. So better watch out for the signs.

Has tatay been constantly complaining about losing strands and strands of his hair every day? Or maybe has he been searching for a way on how to get them to grow back?

According to the hair loss statistics conducted by Statistic Brain in the year 2016, 40 percent of men experience noticeable mane vanishing as early as age 35. And as per the American Hair Loss Association, there are a couple of different factors that cause excessive hair fall, one being extreme degree of stress.

Nutramedica Inc. introduced a revolutionary product that aims to address this problem: NOVUHAIR, nature’s answer to hair loss. Being the only topical scalp lotion in the country that is made from 19 natural herbs, essential oils and co-factor nutrients all working synergistically, it’s perfect for all the heads of the family out there, be they biological or not.

NOVUHAIR is proven effective and safe to help prevent and stop the progression of hair loss and, at the same time, help promote locks’ growth. Simply spray a liberal amount of NOVUHAIR topical scalp lotion onto the scalp and massage for 5-10 minutes. Voila, it penetrates deeply into the roots, which helps rejuvenate, nourish and maintain the natural moisture of the hair.

Still have no idea on what to give him on his big day? Well, NOVUHAIR might not be the most expensive gift to impress him, but the most valuable present he could ever have. This nature’s answer to hair loss provides him the chance to be ahead already in preventing his “crowning glory” from receding in the near future.

So, head on to all leading stores nationwide and get a dose of this breakthrough product. NOVUHAIR is also available in shampoo and conditioner formats to further complement the benefits of NOVUHAIR topical scalp lotion. NOVUHAIR is available at Mercury Drug and other leading drugstores nationwide. You may also order NOVUHAIR online at http://www.lazada.com.ph.
