Jennifer Garner at the Toronto Film Festival to promote her new film, “Juno” on September12th.   I don’t know about you, but I’ve always thought that Jennifer has had the most beautiful, healthy hair.  Want to know how to do it yourself?  Try these 3 steps!

Three main things are needed for a good-looking head of hair – haute hair – good health, the right attention to cleanliness, and caution when using cosmetic treatments.

1. Adequate Diet

Hair growth depends on an adequate diet. A widespread diet problem which causes loss of hair is iron deficiency Anaemia. The cause is too little iron in blood, brought on by a diet containing too little meat, eggs, cereals or peas and beans. Fresh fruits and vegetables are also needed to provide vitamin C, which enables the body to absorb iron.

2. Cutting the hair

Although cutting the hair is not essential to its well-being, it is easier to keep the scalp clean if the hair is kept reasonably short. Regular cutting does not make the hair grow strong or faster.

3. How hair can be damaged

Although scalp hair is hardy, and can withstand a lot of abuse, it can be damaged by too much or inexpertly applied perming, dyeing – Blonde to Brunette, bleaching and massage. The amount of beautying the hair can take varies from person to person. Occasionally the scalp is allergic to the dye and becomes inflamed and swollen. To prevent this occuring, the dye should be tested by applying it to a small area on the arm. If a patch of inflammation has developed, the dye must not be used on the hair.

Most people who bleach their hair do so with hydrogen peroxide. If the peroxide is repeatedly applied, it may make the hair brittle. Hair SOS If this happens the hair may turn rough, develop split ends, or become thinned or shortened.

Tips for beautiful eyebrows!

Jennifer Connelly has always had strong, beautiful brows! Here she is at the premiere of her new movie “Reservation Road” at the Toronto Film Festival, September 13th.  

  • Your eyebrows add strength and definition to your face. Well groomed eyebrows enhance your beauty.
  • You should pluck eyebrows before bedtime so any redness will disappear overnight. In shaping your eyebrows use your facial features.
  • Use a pair of slant edge tweezers which grip hairs easily. Comb hairs one way and then the other to remove loose hairs.
  • You should pluck hairs between the brows and any stragglers. Never remove the hairs from above your eyebrows.
  • Pluck each hair individually close to the root. Work in the direction of the growth.
  • Always avoid over plucking. In defining your eyebrows choose a shade similar to your natural hair colour.
  • When using a pencil you should apply in small, feathered strokes. Starting at the inner corner work outwards.
  • Blend the colour with a brush. To tame stray hairs just use hair gel and comb through to neaten.

It is amazing!

I have read lots of reviews touting the great smell of Philosophy’s Amazing Grace. But I have bought a lot of perfume recently so I was hesitant to try something that I wouldn’t absolutely love. Well love is an understatement the smell of Amazing Grace is near hypnotic to me. It’s so fresh and clean smelling and very feminine without being overpowering or too floral. The first day I had it on I kept wondering what smelled so good as I was running my errands, then I would remember it was my new perfume.

Amazing Grace is a great scent for women who don’t like to smell perfumey, it’s very light and refreshing. If you are lucky enough to have a Sephora store near you, they even have great little trial size bottle for only $15. I think I am adding the lotion and bath gel on my next trip to Sephora.

Philosophy Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace fragrance for women is an uniquely feminine blend of soft, floral blossoms accented by a hint of light musk.

Indulge yourself – and those you are most thankful for – with good-for-your-body-and-soul treats from Philosophy’s Amazing Grace Collection.
