Totally get what you're saying that hair is "dead", and thus, can not be repaired, but I'm not getting the connect between that and protecting undamaged hair. There is, however, some evidence that coconut oil can help to prevent damage, which, in this case, is indeed protein loss: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12715094. No doubt this is where the internet rumors came from (the study is not new). Love to hear your thoughts given the info cited above :)

Hi there +Jessica Allison! You can apply substances to materials to strengthen their resistance to damage (for example, you can apply difference treatments to cotton to help it keep its feel and quality through washings), but this doesn't connect with whether the material is alive.  It's more like helping to preserve the integrity of the material via applying external substances/treatments (sort of like sealing your wood deck). :)

Very unprofessional for the host to hunch forward cupping her chin in her hand. Also, if the point of the video is to illustrate brush strokes, it would be nice if the "expert", um, actually illustrated the brush strokes. Viewers can't even see the position she's holding the brush, making what little advice she does try to give completely ineffective.

The Looking Glass paint is definitely a silver tone- when lit it actually looks bluish. I was going to ask how the hurricanes in final pic were lit because I'm desperately trying to make gold mercury glass for my wedding centerpieces...

+Jessica Allison perhaps after the mercury glass with silver, a latte colored alcohol ink rubbed lightly over would give you the gold tone you desire. Worth a shot?

very nice- I'm new to face painting, and am very intrigued by one-stroke. I've been searching around for practice and your roses are some of the best on YT! Thanks for sharing!

What an odd experience! It almost sounds like there was something on the brush heads that you were reacting to!

I own a Clarisonic that hasn't seen the light of day in months. Even with the sensitive head, using it once daily (and then eventually every other day), I still experienced extreme irritation and dryness. Like you, I wanted to be objective, so nothing else about my routine changed.

After about 6 weeks, the dryness had gotten so bad that my skin had begun to crack- that's when I finally gave up. Within 3 days the problem had almost completely subsided.

When I published these results on my own site, along with some additional research (and my thoughts on why Clarisonic is so popular) I got some of the angriest responses I've ever had! Makes me chuckle, but I know you can identify :)

love it!
It doesn't take NSA-level records access to figure out that Pinterest users freaking love weddings, possibly even more than they love shirtless men. They also love buying the stuff they pin (except for #fitspo, because as we all know, that's priceless). The virtual pinboard site drives sales in a huge way. Now, a new app…

Story
Tagline
Mommy, makeup artist, former education/english lit/theater major. I love to read, learn, teach & play- sometimes all at the same time!!
Introduction
Homebase is Cincinnati, OH, and yes, I'm proud to be an Ohio girl! I love the fact that there's a Saks and Tiffany & Co. downtown, but I can drive 15 minutes and see a cornfield! I've been a makeup artist and skin care buff for over 15 years, in just about every realm of the business you can be in- I've worked retail, managed & trained for major companies, done makeup for theatre, advertising, weddings; you name it! I'm married to the love of my life, soul mate, high-school sweetheart, life partner and other half of 20 years, Brad, and we have an incredible 6-year-old daughter. I spend most of my time raising my baby, blogging, tweeting and reading.
