Amika Holiday Hair Event

Amika had a Holiday Hair Event in San Diego on Monday for the local distributor Spectrum salon services.  I was a great event that featured their unique clip free curlers.  The New York based company features professional tools with fashionable patterns and prints.  They also have a wonderful
line of hair care featuring the benefits of the Obliphica berry.  Angelina Mersola, the Amika educator used their heat defense treatment and blow up spray to achieve  this great hair style.  Check out the model!   Her hair length is really down her back.  It's pinned it underneath to create this old Hollywood bob.
Here is a link to the Amika Website

Detox soak by Cuccio Naturale

Cuccio Naturale has launched a new Detoxifying foot soak for the pedicure market.
The new soak use Epsom salts and is a 15 min add on service for any spa business.
Most people know about the importance of calcium and vitamin D, but many Americans are also magnesium deficient. Doctors say it stems largely from the increasing prevalence of processed foods in our diets. Today, 68 percent of U.S. adults consume less than the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of magnesium, according to the Journal of the American College of Nutrition, and 19 percent consume less than half of the RDA.
Epsom salt is made up of magnesium and sulfate, which can help improve health in numerous ways. A lack of magnesium—which helps regulate the activity of more than 300 enzymes in the body—can contribute to high blood pressure, hyperactivity, heart problems and other health issues, doctors warn. Sulfate is essential for many biological processes, helping to flush toxins and helping form proteins in joints, brain tissue and mucin proteins.
Doctors and researchers say that soaking in an Epsom salt bath is a safe, easy way to increase the body's levels of both magnesium and sulfate
