Many health care professionals realize that a safe, artificially induced fever can have extraordinary healing activity. Slightly raising body temperature produces a natural biological defense and healing force by the immune system to rid itself of destructive pathogens…in effect, to literally burn out foreign or invading microorganisms.
Although infrared saunas are substantially lower in temperature than traditional stove or rock saunas, hyperthermia procedures are displaying a profound therapeutic impact.
Overheating treatments for health benefit have been recognized throughout history. Quite simply, hyperthermia is utilized as a healing technique. Ancient healers were aware that a slight fever was a potent healing tool against various illnesses. Greek physicians elevated body temperatures in therapeutic gathering places as an immune defense against infection, and that method still holds true even today.
Inside the electro-magnetic spectrum, Far Infrared light/heat is manufactured by the sun. It is a portion of the sun’s invisible bandwidth. Even though the bandwidth of light is not detectable to your eye, you feel the heat sensation. This is the heat you feel warming your skin when you are out in the sunlight. You could compare it to sitting in a car on a chilly day and being able to feel the sunlight coming through the window.
In addition, infrared energy is also produced as body heat. We are all familiar with the natural warmth you feel when you are sunbathing. Even your sunscreen can’t stop that, as it only blocks UV light from penetrating your skin—not FIR (far infrared radiant) light waves.
In fact, you can experience Far Infrared Sauna heat for hours and it will never damage your skin or harm your body.
Far Infrared energy heats your body by direct, molecular excitation, without heating the air. Far Infrared light rays penetrate your body’s tissue much deeper than near infrared rays do. As your body absorbs Far Infrared heat waves, it encourages the transfer of water across cellular membranes.
Once the cellular membranes are hydrated, your blood flow is enhanced, which produces an assortment of biologically beneficial body healing functions. The most
notable characteristic of Far Infrared heat is its exceptional ability to penetrate far below superficial skin layers.
When this phenomenon occurs, it creates a natural harmonic resonance within your body at the cellular level, which has numerous advantageous properties. * (Resonant Absorption)*

Waxing is a procedure that, when done correctly, can leave your face smooth and free of hair for weeks. While waxing is convenient and effective, it can also leave you open to infection on the delicate skin of your face. Take precautions by choosing a licensed aesthetisian to wax your face and adhering to any guidelines she gives about facial products and makeup. With the right care, you’ll easily see the benefits of waxing your facial hair compared to other methods. We have a licensed Aesthetician in house. Her name is Page Jones.
When you shave your face, the facial hair is cut off at the surface of the skin, leaving it blunt-edged. When it begins to grow back, it grows in the form of stubble. While a five o’clock shadow is fine for most men, it is unsightly on a woman. Waxing removes the entire hair shaft, meaning it grows back naturally and without the stubbly look that shaving can cause.
As the entire hair is removed from your body, you are guaranteed much longer lasting smooth skin. The root of the hair is removed completely, meaning that it needs to reform from the root before appearing on your face again. Most full body wax jobs, depending on how fast your hair grows, can last up to two weeks. Shaving your face or using a depilatory only lasts up to 5 days.
With waxing your body, you or your salon technician has complete control over which parts of your body are waxed and which stay untouched. For instance, if your salon technician is working around your eyebrow, you can be sure that only the area that has wax on it will be removed, leaving you with perfectly shaped brows. Waxing gives you greater precision over shaving, since the hair is only removed when it has wax on it. This is ideal for the small places on your face that need waxing and shaping.
The more you wax, the less hair you’ll grow. Waxing ultimately damages the hair follicle, so that after having it done repeatedly on your face, the follicle will stop producing hair and you’ll become hair free. Of course, the reduction and essential cease of hair growth can take years to occur, unlike shaving, you’ll start to see less hair each time you wax. This is especially helpful when you’re embarrassed about the hair on your face.
If you have super pale skin and brown hair, consider going lighter or at least having some highlights painted or foiled in. Super dark shades can wash you out and even make you appear older. I love the uber-trendy “bronde” and “ombré“ styles for brunettes for the perfect sun-kissed look.
Some women look good in any color (remember Linda Evangelista?) but most women don’t. If you had blonde hair as a kid, you’ll likely look good as a blonde adult.
Can I Go Red?
Almost everyone can go red, what’s most important is finding the right shade of red. If you want to go red, I suggest not trying it on your own. Get a professional consultation. You won’t believe the number of emails I get from women whose hair turned out orange when they went the box route.
Gorgeous Black Hair
African-American women have many options when it comes to coloring hair. You can tint your hair, add highlights of color or try wigs and weaves to change it up without having to opt for permanent-never-washes-out color.
Many women with gray hair choose to dye their hair. If you are all gray, you may choose to go blonde because blonde is easier to achieve (and maintain) than going dark. More and more women with gray hair are actually learning to embrace the grays. And it’s no wonder. Grays and silvers are gorgeous colors, so much so that a couple years ago, young models were dyeing their hair gray and it was a trend of the moment.
Should You Do It Yourself?
Home-color kits have come a long way in the past few years. They are perfect for busy people and those who want cut the cost of professional colorings. (We know of a couple top fashion editors who color their hair themselves). But if you plan to color your hair more than 2 shades lighter or darker than your natural shade, you should head to a pro.
Should I Get Highlights or Full Color?
When it comes to hair color, you basically have 3 options: highlighting, single-process color or double process.
- Ombré hair color has been popping up on red carpets for more than a year and is a great color option for brunettes.
- Dip-dye hair color has seen no signs of flagging in popularity in 2013. Not just a trend for teens, dip-dye color — in which the ends are dipped in color, while the rest of the hair is left natural — is popping up on women (and men!) of all ages.
- Bronde or “brown blonde” is that perfect shade between blonde and brunette that was first made popular back in 2007 by supermodel Gisele Bundchen and remains popular into 2013.
- Balayage is taking the country’s salons by storm and works on all hair colors, but is especially great on blondes with a beautiful base.
- Bright hues including streaks, washes of pastels, Kool-Aid hair color and more.
- Platinum blonde hair remains popular in 2013. Keeping hair this blonde is high maintenance, however, and won’t suit all skin tones. Find out if platinum hair color suits you in Can You Get Away With Platinum Hair?.
Perms and Waves
Perms have come a long way since the 80s . These days, perms can be fine-tuned to give you exactly the kind of wave you want. You can get perms that just add body to fine, limp hair; you can get loose, sexy waves or you can go for the corkscrew curls that many straight-haired girls covet (and some curly-all-their-lives girls are sick of).
But who’s the best candidate for perms? How long do they last and; most importantly, how do you avoid getting the perm YOU DON’T WANT? The following are 10 rules to live by when it comes to perms in this day and age:
Are You a Good Candidate for a Perm?
Perms work best on hair that has not been colored or highlighted. The chemicals are too harsh for double-processed or heavily highlighted hair and in fact perming hair that’s already damaged from highlights or color can result in major frizz.
If you have dry hair or loads of short layers, you aren’t the best candidate for a perm. Perms will dry hair out even more and a perm on short, layered hair could end up poodle-like.
Not sure if your hair is a good candidate for a perm? Ask us. You’ll want to tell us every chemical process your hair has been through in the last couple years. One way you can find out if your hair is damaged and can’t withstand more chemical processing is to do the old float trick. Take a few strands of hair and put them in a glass of water, if they sink, this means your hair is damaged and is soaking up moisture. If the strands float, this means your hair is healthy. You may want to keep it that way and avoid the perm.
Black hair and Asian hair can also be difficult, but not impossible, to perm.
Oh and one other tip: The thicker your hair, the better the perm will take.
How Long Does a Perm Take?
Perms take one to two hours, depending on how long your hair is and how fast your stylist is. Your stylist will apply a single chemical solution to break the structural bonds in your hair, and another called a “neutralizer.” Also keep in mind, a perm takes 28 hours to relax. Give it some time before you get too worried about the end result.
How Long Does a Perm Last?
Most perms generally last about 2-6 months.
Prep Your Hair for the Perm
To prepare your hair for a perm, you’ll want to use a moisturizing conditioner after you shampoo. Avoid deep-conditioning your hair for at least 24 hours before the perm, otherwise the perm may not take.
The Size of the Rod Matters
The tightness of the curl depends on the size of the rod and the length of time the solution stays in. If you’re worried you’ll end up with too-tight curls, ask your stylist to show you the types of rods she is using.
What to Bring to Your Appointment
You need to take a picture or pictures with you of the type of wave you want. Just telling us what kind of curl leaves you in jeopardy of getting super-duper tight ringlets. We can control the amount of wave we give you as well as the the part of the hair you want to perm. We will need to choose the right-sized rods.
