Longer, Fuller Lashes Prescott?

Posted under Medical Treatments

Are Your Eyelashes Thinning As You Get Older?

 

Latisse® more than doubles lash fullness in 16 weeks.

EYELASH

What is Latisse® Solution?

Latisse® Solution, to promote eyelash growth, is an FDA approved liquid solution prescription made of 0.03% bimatoprost ophthalmic solution.  Latisse® is actually a version of a glaucoma drug in eye drop form called bimatoprost (brand name Lumigan, manufacturer Allergan, Inc.), in use since FDA approval in 2001. During that period, eye doctors and their glaucoma patients noticed the hair growth side effect, with longer, lusher eyelashes appearing over time.  The purpose of this solution is to enhance the appearance of your eyelashes. It will darken, thicken, and lengthen your eyelashes!  This is the only product that effectively achieves this beautiful and desirable result.  Since Latisse® Solution is a prescription only product; you must be seen by a license healthcare provider prior to it’s use.

Does Latisse® really work?   YES!  Latisse® lengthens, thickens and darkens eyelashes via a process that isn’t fully understood.  Like the hair on your head, eyelashes sprout, grow for a while and eventually fall out.  Latisse® both extends the growth phase and increases the number of hairs that sprout.  After two months of nightly use, you will begin to see results.  After three or four months, it may be recommended to schedule treatment every two days.  If you stop using Latisse®, your eyelashes will gradually return to their former state.

Study participants experienced these results after 16 weeks:
*    Eyelash length increased by 25 percent.
*    Thickness and fullness increased by 106 percent.
*    Eyelash darkness increased by 18 percent.

How Often Should You Wash Your Hair?

Posted under Informational

You may be washing your hair more often than you need to!

washing her long hairEven though it depends a lot on your hair type, washing your daily is a big mistake.

Washing your hair may seem like a simple task, but there are many of us doing it wrong, and this could lead to scalp irritation, dandruff, lice and other scalp issues.

Let’s begin with what makes you hair dirty, and sebaceous glands are to blame, these are the glands that secrete an oily/waxy matter, called sebum, to lubricate our skin and hair.

A basic rule of thumb for those with thick hair or tight curls and kinks is to shampoo twice a week with moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, your hair doesn’t feel  dirty easily, so you don’ t need to cleanse it until  it feel s dirty.

For Medium curl s, kinks and waves hair type, you can afford to shampoo every few days.

If you have a fine hair texture, fine curls and waves, your curly locks will look their best if you shampoo every two days.  It’s not your style to have oily texture, so it’s best to keep it clean, and make sure to moisturize with a good conditioner.

Anyone with normal hair is recommended to wash between three to four times per week, but you might find you need to wash hair more often in the summer when you’ re more active, meanwhile as for those of us with oily hair you can wash your hair almost daily, but remember to give you hair a break at least once or twice per week.
