October month is the international campaign for breast cancer awareness. Did you know that breast cancer is the second more common cancer that touches women after skin cancer? Far too many of us have lost a mother, a sister, a daughter, a family member, a friend or a colleague because of this disease. As some of you may know I also lost my mother from breast cancer. Let’s have a talk!

STRONGER TOGETHER

REDUCE THE RISKS

Unfortunately we can’t cheat the biggest factors such as being a woman, our genetics, our age or our family history.There is no sure way to prevent it but there are proven ways to reduce the risks. Research has shown that it’s all mostly related to a balance and healthy lifestyle. Here are the top tips for breast cancer prevention.

SELF-EXAM & GET SCREENED

QUIT SMOKING

Smoking has been linked to an increased risk for almost every type of cancer and women who smoke are nearly four times more likely to develop breast cancer than non-smokers.

MAINTAIN A HEALTHY WEIGHT

Excess fat can increase the body’s estrogen levels.  Estrogen can cause the growth of breast cancer cells. Women who are obese after menopause are 30 percent more likely to develop breast cancer.

STAY ACTIVE

Staying active is key to staying healthy. Exercising for at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week, can make a big impact on your health

REDUCE ALCOHOL

Alcohol INTAKE can increase levels of estrogen and an increased lifetime estrogen exposure is associated with breast cancer.

Also when we metabolize alcohol, it’s converted into acetaldehyde, a toxic by-product that can damage DNA and interfere with our ability to repair it. If you can’t avoid alcool, reduce it as much as you can.

BREASTFEEDING

Some studies suggest that a woman who breastfeed the first 6 months drop breast cancer risk by 40%. This seems to be because women don’t menstruate while breastfeeding, which lowers their exposure to estrogen.

HELLO FALL,

The temperature is dropping and you’ve decided to protect your natural hair from the cold weather and dryness associated to it by opting for a protective hairstyle such as wig or hair extensions.

Caring for raw virgin hair can be tricky if you don’t know where to start but with the right haircare regimen you will be able to manage a stressfree hairstyle.

MOISTURE, MOISTURE, MOISTURE!

Hair moisturizing needs to find its place in your daily haircare routine. Like your own natural hair, virgin hair is also impacted by cold weather. We highly recommend oil serums such as coconut oil, argan oil or jojoba oil. That will help prevent dryness, static and tangling.

By using just a very small amount everyday it will give your hair the moisture it needs.

HOT STYLING TOOLS

In order to preserve your AVH extensions ALWAYS use a heat protectant before the use of a hot styling tool . The protectant is a barrier to prevent breakage, dryness, dullness, and brittleness.

DEEP CONDITIONING

It’s very crucial to also include a weekly deep conditioning treatment.

Be very generous with the conditioner, get that hair satured! The goal is to repair dry, damaged hair by rebuilding the hair’s molecular layer and replenishing moisture.

Secret tip: Put a plastic bag on top of your head when you’re deep conditioning and let it sit for at least 45min to an hour. The heat coming from your scalp will actually help open up the cuticules and allow a better penetration of the formula into you hair.

The same can be done with a wig, place unit in a sealed plastic bag and put in warm water.

HAIR PRODUCTS

OGX products

We hightly recommend using hair products low in chemicals, preferabley  sulfate & paraben-free. Our favorite brand is OGX. They have differents serums available such as argan oil, coconut oil.

Night routine tip

SATIN PILLOWCASE, SCARF & SILK BONNET

By including those in your nightime routine it will help reduce friction and hair damage while you’re asleep. The smooth surface also help to maintain the oil in your hair.

HAIR DETANGLING TIPS

Start your detangling process with a wide-tooth comb. Gently work your way from bottom to top to remove any possible knots. Then use a loop brush to finish detangle.
