What I Learned About Healthy Hair From Bustle.com

I came across a great, and unbiased review (isn’t it so hard to find unbiased reviews these days?) on Bustle.com. The review detailed how the writer used Wen cleansing conditioner for the very first time. It followed her hair routine for seven days and readers can see the visible transformation in her hair. The full article can be found here, with pictures: https://www.bustle.com/articles/136320-i-used-cleansing-cleansing-conditioner-on-my-fine-hair-heres-what-happened

I love this review because it follows one woman’s true hair story. We all know we have hair “hiccups” based on our daily schedules and that no product is perfect. However, the conclusion of her review was that Wen had made her hair softer and shinier and that she would recommend the product to anyone with thin hair that wanted that soft and shiny look.

The idea of a cleansing shampoo was a bit new to people, that are used to scrubbing their hair wish harsh shampoos. However, that lather we often thinks “cleans” our hair is stripping our hair and scalp of all the healthy oils and may be using sulfates to do so.

Wen by Chaz uses natural ingredients that clean your hair in a gentle and thorough manner. While it cleanses it also is deeply nourishing your hair and scalp, meaning that it replaces your conditioner as well. The cleansing shampoo also takes away the need for additional products like a leave-in conditioner, using something to de-tangle hair and hair is so soft and healthy you shouldn’t even need to use another deep conditioner.

Wen was created by celebrity hairstylist Chaz Dean, who founded the product on the basis of using natural ingredients to actually care for your hair, rather than using chemicals to make it “look” nourished but that may actual cause more harm than good. Wen by Chaz has been around for 16 years and sold more than 40 million bottles.

Wen products are Sephora available and can also be purchased online via Amazon.

Doe Deere’s Lime Crime Makeup Brand Riding E-Commerce Wave Of Success

Some might call Doe Deere a bit of a rebel in the highly competitive cosmetics industry, but that would be quite a compliment.

The CEO and founder of Lime Crime makeup doesn’t follow old world rules; she breaks them and thinks outside the box. Maybe that is why her barely nine-year-old makeup brand has soared to the top of e-commerce, giving the makeup-obsessed a clear alternative.

Doe Deere sat down with IdeaMensch to talk beauty shop. She tells the publication that her makeup not only covers the skin, but it also gives empowerment to women, and yes, the men who wear it.

Lime Crime is not the kind of makeup we’re used to seeing both at the drugstore or high-end boutiques. The makeup we’ve been forced to wear for decades might offer variety but nothing modern or ground-breaking.

Lime Crime makeup goes beyond the “normal” color spectrum, creating lipsticks, eye shadows and eye liners in a crazy a** range that might look a bit bizarre, until you put some on. Metallic lipstick in blue or gray, eye shadow in brick or rust, Lime Crime pushes the beauty envelope in a sensual, naughty and adventurous kind of way.

Doe Deere doesn’t just wear the Lime Crime label, she tells IdeaMensch that she is active through the entire day with meetings, collaborations with her creative director and working on new products with the brand’s chemist.

If a product isn’t 100 percent perfect, unique and amazing, then Doe Deere tosses it aside. She wears her brand and is proud her label creates fun, colorful cosmetics that allow freedom of expression.

When she launched Lime Crime in 2008, Doe Deere wasn’t sure how the company would take off and if other women really desired strong makeup with playful glitter and iridescence. The online community welcomed Lime Crime, with social media playing a major role. Today, Lime Crime’s colorful Instagram page is followed by more than 2.7 million makeup-addicted fans. They drape themselves in the makeup and send selfies to #LimeCrime.

Doe Deere and her fans inspire each other when it comes to trends and what’s wearable at the moment. In fact, Lime Crime has picked up a cult following, and the momentum doesn’t appear to be leveling off any time soon.

Doe Deere was named to Self-Made magazine’s list of Top Inspiring Women Entrepreneurs, gracing its cover.
