Spring/Summer 16 takes us out of this world. On the way out we will sneak a peek into the bedroom and take a bike ride into the sunset. Eye popping super-sized
stripes will enthrall our senses. The shoulders and abs will become the new erogenous zones. If you are wondering how to enter the new season-embrace it, make it your own. Summer’s palette: An ombre of glowing sunset hues. The vibrant colors of the sunset and the pure romance when dusk turns to night. Sundown’s fire that lights up the sky got designers thinking from flame-licked yellow to orange-cinnamon. It’s a time of spectacular style with cut-a-ways and intriguing peep holes in dresses and tops, just enough detail to keep him guessing. Lingerie for day wear in the form of a silk duster worn as a topper gives trousers a touch of glamour. Off-the-shoulder and deep plunging V-necklines add seduction to dresses and tops. For those of you going to the moon, pick up a pair of Ralph Lauren’s silver foiled trousers and a NASA worthy space suit in galaxy blue, chrome or white. Summer’s reworked biker jacket from Louis Vuitton leaves rubber in the dust.
Women have been experiencing hair loss from cleansing conditioners causing panic and leaving them helpless. In the salon here is what we have found to be helpful. Getting your scalp clean is essential. Buildup has to be removed so your hair can breathe. The best way is to wash your hair with a good old fashioned shampoo. Forget the sulfate free and all of the dry shampoos etc. You need a shampoo that lathers to clean away oil, dirt and debris that has built up on your scalp. Many people stop washing their hair because they are afraid when they see it fall. The falling will stop when your scalp starts to get oxygen and rejuvenates itself. There are many good shampoos on the market. Take Biosil to increase the thickness of your hair. Biosil is silica-your hair’s best friend. They claim 12-13 percent more hair in six months. I have seen the results. Judaysia VS Volumizing Shampoo is available at judaysia.com. Biosil is available at health food stores and online.
