THE HAIR THING

BY LINDA LE BROCK

HAIR FOR OLDER WOMEN WOMEN OF A CERTAIN AGE PENELOPE CRUZ

I have long eyelashes and Soviet (er, Russian) leader eyebrows, so I skip past the Revitalash ads in magazines.

But yesterday while getting my hair done, as usual I was complaining to my hairdresser that my locks aren’t exactly luscious anymore. My hair seems so much thinner than it used to be. She suggested hair extensions, and I made a face, since to me they are a little Vegas waitress/stripper/George Clooney’s girlfriend. So then she told me that Revitalash made a product for hair. She said her grandmother tried it and it really worked. Oh great! Your grandmother huh… no no, several of her clients (my age!) were using it. Tell me again why I go to a 20-something hairdresser?!

Anyway it’s not cheap: about $180 for a three-month supply. But if it’s going to give me Penelope Cruz hair… So, out there in Flirtini land, anyone try this or know anyone who has?

    I was covering a hair show this summer and I met the nice folks from Viviscal. It’s a marine-based supplement that has been the “secret” of models with trashed hair for years. I have hair to spare, thank you very much, but my nails were trashed–paper thin and peeling–so I gave it a try. After 3 months, my nails are like steel–and that has never happened. I can’t really report on a hair change since I got a keratin smoothing service in June and my hair is much “skinnier” from that (which is another subject I’ll write about soon) but if Viviscal works for nails, it will probably work on hair since it’s all basically the same stuff. Not sure how the price compares to Revitalash but here you go: http://www.viviscal.com.

      Thanks hugely for information! I checked out their website. Somewhat cheaper than Revitalash–$49.99 for 60 pills and you take two a day. And they make a scalp lotion for $19.99. I read some reviews that also confirmed it’s great for nails too. One reviewer said she saved money and bought Nori seaweed instead and ate a couple of sheets of the seaweed a day (the main ingredient in Viviscal is marine based) and saved money that way. And also saw that coconut oil was recommended as a conditioner that helps hair. So, I will try and report back!

    Try this too for a natural supplement for skin and hair. It’s called 30 day beauty. It’s packets of good-for-you vitamins. It’s at http://www.iherb.com. I love it and I can tell a difference.

    Great advice Jackie. Seaweed also helps celulite. I’m just saying……

    Okay, new diet: coconuts, seaweed and a pile of vitamins. Dang, I bet I lose a few pounds, get thicker hair AND get rid of celulite.
