We attended the Yoga on the Steps event in Philadelphia hosted by the Living Beyond Breast Cancer Organization this past Sunday and although the weather was weather we still had a great time. Our girls joined the other amazing Yogis on the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum in the rain. It was a very moving and empowering event to say the least. We loved all the goodies the sponsors provided as well as the energy from the other attendees. The Living Beyond Breast Cancer Organization works to empower women who have survived cancer to live a long, quality life.
The Yoga on the Steps event in Philadelphia raised $238,859.20 as of today! Congrats everyone! They still have to raise their goal of $340,000.00 which you can still send donations to here.
We attended the event to demonstrate to those women undergoing hair loss from chemotherapy that there are alternatives. We offer custom made hairpieces and hair extensions for women who have any type of hair loss or hair thinning. Please call us at (212) 986-5620 to schedule a free consultation!
Angelina Jolie made a bold decision by having a double mastectomy to diminish her chances of being diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Carrying the BRCA1 gene sharply increases the risk for both breast and ovarian cancer. Angelina is opening the eyes of many women who may be carrying this gene and had no idea that these preventative measures are available. Angelina lost her mother to cancer in 2007.
“I choose not to keep my story private because there are many women who do not know that they might be living under the shadow of cancer. It is my hope that they, too, will be able to get gene tested, and that if they have a high risk they, too, will know that they have strong options.”
Angelina isn’t the only female celebrity living in the shadows of cancer. Sharon Osbourne also had a preventative double mastectomy when she, too, found she carried the BRCA1 gene back in 2007. This was all after being diagnosed with colorectal cancer in 2001.
E! TV host Guiliana Rancic went through infertility treatment in 2011 and was told by her doctor to have a mammogram where doctors found early stages of breast cancer. She recalls this as one of the best decisions she’s made in her life. She now has a son, Edward Duke, who is said to be healthy and smart.
In 2008, Christina Applegate was diagnosed with breast cancer and decided to remove both breasts even though the cancer was only in one. Her mother also battled breast cancer and after a genetic test, tested positive for the BRCA1 gene.
The BRCA1 gene is a mutation that causes cancer. It can be easily detected with a genetic test, but decided on a double mastectomy can be a very hard decision. For those women who have been diagnosed with cancer and have undergone chemotherapy hair loss is a very big issue. I’m sure these actresses wondered how hair loss would affect their lives. At LeMetric we offer a great alternative for women who have lost their hair for any reason.

So, we’ve seen vlogs (video blogs) on YouTube offering Q&A Sessions for people alike giving advice on many different subjects from relationships to working out. Elline has decided to vlog her own Q&A Sessions for older broads such as herself.

At our Hair Extension Bar, clients’ first question is “How do I take care of my Hair Extensions?” Luckily for us, we use great quality human hair that is treated like the hair on your head. Werecommend you purchase human hair and not synthetic hair extensions, no matter what. How you care for your hair extensions depends more on the way it is applied.
If you use clip-in hair extensions make sure you remove your hair extension before you shower. Wash your hair extensions separately from your own hair. We recommend using a quarter size amount of shampoo and use a deep conditioning treatment to keep the hair extensions from splitting and shiny. Air dry then style as usual.
If you have a sewn-in weave we recommend wrapping your hair at night. Yes, this is normally done by ethnic girls who wear weaves, but white, yellow, orange, etc. girls can and should wrap their hair because it will help their weave last longer. Here is a great How to from our friends over at eHow. When it comes to washing, we recommend using high quality products and deep conditioners. Rinse lightly and run your fingers through your hair and never pull your hair even if you have a bee-hive size knot. Pat hair dry with a soft towel, spray with detangling spray, use fingers or a wide-tooth brush to get all the knots out, and let air-dry or add a diffuser if you need to blow dry.
Fusion Hair Extensions are the trickiest to care for as they tend to matte more than any other technique. Remember to keep away any heat appliances from the fusion bonds. Flat irons, curling wands, clamps, etc. cause the keratin bonds to crack and/or weaken. Focus on the length of the hair when blow drying and using other hair tools. Let your roots air-dry and you can still use your favorite root boosters and mousses in small amounts. When washing, be gentle with your hair extensions, don’t scrub, and use a deep conditioner to avoid knots.
Hair Extensions are a great way to add length, volume, or a pop of color without harming your own hair. Our Hair Extension Bar focuses on finding the best application method for your hair type and needs. If you have any questions on hair extensions applications methods and how to care for them please email us at email@example.com and call us at (212) 986-5620 for your free hair consultation.
