It is no secret anymore that all diets work well for models within our industry trying to lose weight. The main thing is to lower one’s calorie intake and then stick to it! In fact, pure physics insists that a person’s weight will always be determined by the calories (energy) they take in as well as the magnitude of the energy he or she expend. Now here comes the big question. Why, even with such a revealing is the issue of obesity still seen as a national epidemic in some countries?
The problem is and will always be there as it’s against human nature to have a limit on calorie intake. In fact, people consume more than what they need to. I know a handful of models that can’t stay away from their chocolate! This is a culture passed down from one generation to another, say hunter-gatherer ancestors to the current take away food consumers. Other reasons why people eat excessively include but not limited to modern lifestyles, psychological triggers and chronic stress.
Acupuncture Weight Loss Procedure
Let me let you in on a little secret in the modeling industry – Acupuncture for wight loss. I’ve been going to the Acupuncture Miami clinic for almost 5 years now and its been incredibly worth it. From a traditional Chinese medicine point of view, the acupoints, herbs and food that are selected to help people lose weight actually impact on their qi, especially within their liver and spleen systems to correct the root imbalances that trigger weight gain and obesity.
On the other hand, from the Western medicine and science point if view, acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine impacts on the working of a person’s nervous system, food craving, metabolism, digestive and endocrine systems. All these can assist in the rejuvenation of their body, reduction of nutrients absorption and anxiety. Besides, the same process helps regulate elimination, suppress appetites, and control overeating.
The most beautiful thing about acupuncture treatment is that it is mindful of the needs of each and very individual’s requirements. The main goal of their treatment is to offer every person, irrespective of their age and gender, all they desire as far as weight loss is concerned. The acupuncturist selects points, of course on your body that promotes overall wellness, increases Qi and blood circulation (metabolic stimulation) and calms your nervous system.
Problems associated with overeating and premenstrual syndrome
Acupuncture doesn’t only treat the source of the body imbalance but also other problems associated with overeating and premenstrual syndrome. For example, in case you experience a strong craving for food related to PMS, then this can be handled by your acupuncturist.
In general, appointment and treatments are arranged one or two times per week for about eight to twelve weeks. However, the treatment can be prolonged until one achieves their weight loss goal. The procedure entails a combination of body and ear (auricular) acupuncture, ear pellets or tacks to last in between, supplements, herbs, treatments, abdominal massage, food, breathing exercises and lifestyle recommendations.
Acupoints on patient’s ears are effective for the weight loss. Remember that human ears are inverted fetal positions and contain points that relate to all basic body parts and organs. The ears points are stimulated through the use of little tacks during treatment.
It might seem weird to you at first that you ear could be directly tied to your weight loss or gain, but it’s been a little known technique that many models have used over the years to remain healthy and thin during their careers.

Who does not want to look gorgeous at a party or social gathering? If your hair is not in the best shape, it becomes very difficult to manage. Take the hair away from your overall look and it will be very tough for you to impress anyone with them. This is the case when your hair is dry.
Women who invest hundreds and thousands of dollars on hair care treatments are not insane. They understand the role that their hair plays in making them look beautiful. They also get their desired results from their investments when everyone compliments their looks. The trend of buying both natural and artificial hair for wigs, or hair extensions, is on the rise. Virgin hair is one of the types of hair used in wigs.
What is Virgin Hair?
Virgin hair is a type of hair that is never been processed or treated with chemicals, dyes, bleaches, etc. In fact, no straightening, coloring and curling has ever been done on the hair. The main condition is the hair donor had to fulfill is that the donor is only eligible to donate virgin hair if they have never gone to a salon for any kind of hair treatment. All the hair must be taken from the one ponytail to be considered as virgin hair. There are lots of hair companies out there – check out the Virgin Hair site on Queen Virgin Remy reviews.
Since this criterion is so hard to meet, it is very tough to find virgin hairs. Most women have gone through the salon for hair treatment and that makes virgin hair donors rather scarce. Not only that, but the virgin hair is quite expensive, and is in very high demand. This creates a gap between supply and demand.
Virgin Hairs and Women
Many women in under developed countries are focusing on becoming a virgin hair donor because it easier for them to do so thanks to their culture. Thus, another important factor forcing women in Asia to become a virgin hair donor is the financial factor. They can gain quite a lot of money by donating their virgin hairs.
Keeping the cuticles in proper alignment is also critical. Virgin hair remains soft and silky for a longer period as compared those treated with chemicals and dyes. Virgin hair gives the best results for wigs and hair extension as compared to any other synthetic hair. It is more durable and gives you a natural look. Women need to be very careful when buying virgin hair, because most of the manufacturers and suppliers also try to fool women by selling other type of hair as virgin hair.
You must treat virgin hair as you would treat your natural hair. You will feel at home when treating your virgin hair, because they act and look like natural hair. Virgin hair can last longer if you treat them carefully and according to recommended guidelines. Consult a hair specialist and visit the salon regularly to keep your virgin hair in its best shape. Finally, choose virgin hair that look good on you and blend nicely with your look.

Undeniably, Brazilian body wave hair weaves are absolutely fabulous! It doesn’t matter if you are a busy mother or a student on the go, a Brazilian weave may just be what you’re looking for to look gorgeous even on your dull days.
However, it also depends a lot on how you take care of your weave. There are many ways through which you can take care of your extensions.
Treat them as Your Own Hair
To maintain them, you will have to treat Brazilian body wave weaves, made out of 100% human hair, like your own natural hair. Wash it with your trusty softening shampoo to make it smell exactly the same as your natural hair.
You can also apply your preferred conditioner after rinsing off the shampoo for extra softness and protection. Make sure you use a deep conditioner once a week to manage the weave and to keep them soft.
Go for a Dry Scalp Treatment
To keep curly weaves remaining shiny all the time, add small portions of olive oil to the wafts. Since the conditioner may not successfully make its way into your natural roots and scalp when you are wearing extensions, it is important to keep your scalp and roots away from certain dryness issues.
Dandruff and itchy scalp can be relieved by applying tea tree oil to it twice a week. In order to apply these oils to your scalp, weave and roots take a teaspoon of oil and moist your fingers to gently massage the oil through your hair and into your scalp. In extreme cases you can keep repeating this process until the Brazilian weaves begin to shine and the scalp is relieved of the itching. Don’t over-oil the weave, otherwise it will appear greasy.
Use a Wide Tooth Comb for Brazilian weaves
Use a wide tooth comb to maintain a tangle-free weave on a daily basis. Start combing from the middle of the weave and work your way through until you reach the ends. This comes handy in reducing tangles and shedding for keeping your hair protected for a longer period of time.
Wrap up your Weave
If you don’t want to wake up in the morning with messy hair, a very convenient way of protecting your Brazilian weaves is to keep it straight and as tangle free as possible by wrapping your hair, using a silk head scarf. Not only, it will thwart hair damage and breakage, it will not snag your hair.
Acquiring an exceptionally gorgeous looking weave is not something than can be attained if you possess fine, short or limp hair that don’t grow quickly. Buying Brazilian weaves offers you the chance to flaunt gorgeous tresses that you have always yearned for.
You don’t have to rely on wearing wigs that turn out to be a scorching experience in the summers. If you take care of your Brazilian weave, they will last for longer than the seller recommends, and will shine for even longer. Don’t forget to get the wave installed correctly – this is crucial! If you don’t still that weave it will not last long and won’t look as great. Check out this video from Her Imports for more information on how to install properly with a closure.

Brazilian hair weaves are popular hair extensions made entirely out of 100% human hair. Easy to maintain and soft textured, they conveniently blend with natural hair as they are, as mentioned before, human hair.
They are available in various colors so everyone can choose their preferred one according to their complexion. The best part about Brazilian hair weaves is that you treat and care for them as if they were your own hair.
Nobody wants to spend his valuable money on a fake product. That’s why the last thing you want to purchase is a synthetic product claiming to be the 100% Brazilian hair weaves. They will melt or will be unable to sustain any style like real weaves would.
To save you the heartbreak, we have compiled some tested ways to identify whether the hair weave you want to buy is original or synthetic.
- Buy only from sources that are recommended by your friends, people who have already bought Brazilian hair weaves from there. Make sure you also do your homework before visiting the place.
- You can also check reviews from salons or online retailers who claim to sell 100% authentic and durable hair weaves. Always remember, cosmetic products are priced for a reason. Don’t buy anything that is priced too good to be true.
- Check how the hair weaves feel. Although, you cannot try a hot iron to verify its authenticity right there and then, but you can still touch to know how the texture feels. We all know how real hair feels like, so identifying synthetic hair from real Brazilian hair weaves is rather simple and straightforward.
- Check the quality and texture of the shaft and ends of the hair weave you’re about to purchase. Maybe it is 70% real hair and 30% artificial. Also, if you notice any breakages or split ends, reject the product right away.
- Check the color as it is not supposed to be dyed and may slightly vary for some portions of the hair. Come to think of it, we have hair that may have different shades and not necessarily uniformly colored in a single tone.
Fake hair is often recognizable as it is all of the same color, done in an attempt to deceive the buyer who will mistake them for authentic and genuine hair.
- When you wish to buy 100% genuine Brazilian hair weaves, you can also check them after buying. Before you have it woven onto your head, do a flame test with any strand of the weave. If it is not real, it will be extremely flammable. Although, real hair can burn easily as well, you can easily identify the smell of burning human hair and something that is synthetic. You can return the fake hair to the store by showing them the same test.
These are some of the ways to make sure you are purchasing 100% real Brazilian hair weaves. It is strongly recommended to buy hair products from a reputed and trusted salon or online retailer. Check out this video from the well known hair brand Her Imports.

A Woman’s Beauty Secret
A woman can make heads turn and smiles to appear depending on her beauty when she passes in a certain area. So what really makes a woman beautiful? Is it her physical characteristics, intellectual beauty or inner beauty?

A woman should not be afraid to speak their heart out. A woman’s intelligence is not necessarily obtained through education or by attaining a degree. Intellectual beauty is determined by how she talks, her display of confidence. She may not have good and desirable physical characteristics but she may have intellectual beauty which is much more important. However, according to a Huffington Post article, intelligent women do have a harder time when putting themselves out there in the dating world.
This is what makes a woman attractive or repellant after meeting them for the first time. People always have the potential to have a good character and also a personality that is charming. Nowadays, life has changed and it is very difficult to know pretenders.
