Protein Treatments The Aphogee Treatment for damaged hair has a wonderful restorative and fixative value for damaged, chemically processed hair. It repairs the hair for up to six weeks and then needs to be repeated. Protein treatments are important when you want to strengthen the hair cuticle, and stop/ prevent split ends, and shedding. Since hair is made up of about 70% keratin protein, giving it a good, protein treatment will help to strengthen it from the inside out. An intense protein treatment like this one is ONLY necessary every 6-8 weeks (as needed), and it will keep the hair shaft strong and prevent breakage before it even starts. Before We Begin: After you’ve tried this once and gotten the initial “scare” out the way... It really becomes quite fun! Watching your hair harden before your eyes, like the helmet of a Warrior Princess, is very cool! * Please note that I find it best to do this without a shirt on and without a towel around the neck.* The reason why it’s best to be shirtless is because, as your hair starts to harden and dry, it sticks to the surface of whatever it is touching. If you have a towel around your neck, or a shirt on , the hair may stick to the fabric... And you may unable to remove it without tearing the hair. If you opt to leave your hair down rather than pinned up during the treatment, try not to move your head around too much as it hardens/dries and sticks to your back. While the sensation of that is very annoying, it’s best to leave it be, lest you inadvertently tear/break the strands. Now We’re Ready To Get Stated: 1 Two weeks after a touch-up I use the Aphogee protein treatment. After shampooing, saturate hair with the Aphogee treatment. Do Not comb through. Use your fingers to gently and quickly work it into the hair. 2 Apply heat to the hair, using hooded dryer or a blow dryer with funnel attachment. You should feel your hair harden, like a helmet. Do Not try to comb or manipulate your hair during this time. If your hair is long make certain to concentrate the heat toward the ends, so that can harden as well. 3 Once your hair is hard all over, rinse the treatment out thoroughly. As soon as the water starts to hit it, you should feel the hair start to soften immediately. At this point, you still don’t need to use your fingers/comb to manipulate the hair. The pressure from the water will be sufficient to soften the hair. 4 Follow up with the Aphogee Moisturizing Humuctant. I then apply another moisturizing conditioner, usually a cheap condition ( Suave Milk and Honey or V05) blended with a few heaping spoons of honey and olive oil. I let this to sit in hair for about fifteen minutes before rinsing. 5 Moisturize with a generous amount of the ORS Olive the Cantu Shea Butter: Break Cure & Strengthening Treatment, put into one plait, and bun to air-dry.

Shakira Clark Hair Stylist & Educator for Soft Sheen Carson division of Loreal USA Professional Wendy Wiltz , from America's Next Top Model Cycle 6

This look was created by roller setting the hair with Soft Sheen Carson's Opti Potion Lotion, which can be used as a foam to provide a nice set. The hair was set on medium size rollers, and set under the dryer for 35mins. Upon drying the hair, sides of hair was brushed to center to give Wendy a Mohawk rock star look. In creating the height at frontal , I used a light holding spritz to hold the hair straight up, secured with duck bill clip, and defused to set the hump in place. Last, to finish her look ,I applied a small amount of the Opti Shine which also minimizes frizz and gives the hair a sheen to the back area loosing the hair, releasing beautiful following rock star curls .

HEALTH & WELLNESS Latoya Farley: Personal Trainer Co-Owner of Fit One Fitness & Nutrition Specialist The holidays are over and the New Year is here. Most of us start after the holidays to set some weight lost goals. Once the holidays have come and gone and along with them, most of our well intended New Year’s resolutions to achieve our weight loss. Unfortunately, what hasn’t gone are those 5-7 lbs we put on during the holidays, or unwanted weight that has slowly settled itself on our bodies since high school. You know, those pesky extra pounds that have attached themselves to your hips, thighs, abdomen and upper arms. I am offering all those that have fallen off the wagon a chance at redemption to get ready for the pending swimsuit and shorts season.

Here are some helpful dieting hints to get you started. Get about 8 hours of sleep every night. Chronic lack of sleep may lead to obesity. Weigh yourself at regular intervals to keep your weight in check and keep track of your weight loss. Drink water throughout the day especially during your workouts. Try to drink at least 72 ounces of water a day, more if working out. Don’t eat before exercising (assuming you are working out first thing in the morning). If you are working out later in the day try not to eat within an hour of your workout. at your first meal within 45 minutes of completing the exercise. This way your body can utilize it appropriately. Read Focus on foods with a low glycemic index; avoid processed flour, pasta, potatoes, and sugars. nutrition labels and be aware of serving sizes, especially when dining out; if there is too much food, contrary to popular belief you can take it home. Every last morsel doesn’t have to be eaten at the table. Replace the unhealthy fats with healthy fats such as, almonds, vegetable oil, olive oil and fish oil. Vary your protein sources. 3-5 servings of red meat a week. Chicken is always a good choice. Fish contain beneficial omega-3 fatty acids which promote cardiovascular health, can reduce risk of some forms of cancer, and aid in fat loss. 1-2 servings of fish a week is a safe amount to retain the health benefits and negate the issue of mercury. Try to eat small meals often. Aim to try to eat a minimum of 4 meals a day. This will keep you from going to long and binge eating, or giving into cravings and making unhealthy choices. Determine your daily calories and try to keep them there or a little below. (Daily calories= body weight x 10). This will keep you at about a 500 calories deficit. People’s metabolisms vary, but this is a good rule of thumb. Start your day with 1-2 cups black coffee or green tea; both are high in antioxidants.

HEALTH & WELLNESS The Introduction to the Foot

Heart Disease

There are 28 bones and over 30 joints in the foot that are connected by ligaments and whose motion is controlled by intrinsic and extrinsic muscles. Biomechanically, the foot acts as a tripod with weight bearing occurring through the heel bone and the first and fifth metatarsals. The joints are covered by cartilage which provides the gliding motion of the ankle joint which allows the foot to go up and down and the subtalar joint which allows side to side motion. Normal walking involves a double and single leg phase of gait during which the hindfoot inverts to provide a rigid lever to go up on the toes. When the foot is flat the hindfoot everts to allow the foot to relax and become more flat. The foot possesses several muscles on its sole as well as a fat pad that creates a cushion between the bones and the ground. All of these anatomic structures of the foot work in concert to maintain a harmonic homeostasis to provide us with a painless gait give us balance and agility. When the harmony of any one of these components is disrupted then disability is the result. Common global problems that affect the foot are heel pain, arthritis, tendonitis, neuritis or neuropathy, vasculopathy,deformity and trauma. Most of these problems, aside from trauma, can be addressed conservatively with rest, shoe wear modification, anti-inflammatories and physical therapy. When conservative measure fail to relive symptoms and restore function, surgery may be indicated. Even in the case of trauma, such as ankle sprains, there are some conservative measures that can be effective, but by in large, most of these injuries will require surgical intervention. As our understanding of common foot problems has continued to be elucidated, so has our ability to make an accurate diagnosis. These modalities include x-rays, ultrasound, bone scans and MRI. Surgical advances have also improved patient outcomes due to improved arthroscopy tools, internal instrumentation including bioabsobable implants and various synthetic bone grafting materials, sterilization techniques and improved rehabilitation protocols. Even more recent advances, such as total ankle replacement for ankle arthritis and shock wave therapy for plantar fascitis, continue to provide options that were not available 25 years ago. Even newer techniques for cartilage replacement will some day obviate the need for joint replacement.

According to recent studies Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of African-Americans ,claiming the lives of 37 percent of the nearly 288,000 Blacks who die each year. It is particularly deadly for black females, with five in every ten dying each year of cardiovascular disease. The cause of the deadly effect on African-American women is unclear, but it is believed to be related to genetics, environment and disparity in medical care. It is important for women to be aware of symptoms of heart disease which include:

Be Inspired from the inside out Dreams of Dreamers Pastor Pamela Wiley

ESEM: “ Who is Pastor Pam personally as the minister/ encourager?” Pastor Pam: “Personally & ministry wise is all rolled into one. My call, vision, and purpose in life are to encourage people, mainly women. I feel that I am called to encourage women to be all they were created to be, and to have high self-esteem. Growing up the way I did with both parents in the house, my parents invested a lot of time with me. Low- self esteem was never an issue or concern with us (my family). My parents always told us we can have anything, do anything and be anybody. They taught us to have self-worth and pride. As a child growing up, I was taught not to feel inferior to anyone, while also telling us not to feel as if we are better than anybody else. As I got older I realized that everybody doesn’t have that opportunity to have someone always encouraging them to be all that you can, to have self worth and selfpride. So I endeavor to give back to women the encouragement to be all God has created them to be and never let anyone take advantage of them, to always have a dream, a vision, a goal, to have a focus in mind of where they want to go in life, to ultimately focus on their purpose, the vision and the plan of God given to them before they were formed in their mother’s womb. So with all of that I feel one of my many purposes is to instill that into people (women) that I come in contact with.” 2009 January 14

“ We have to focus in on the inside of us in order to bring our dreams into reality.”

ESEM: “ Do you have any words of wisdom to share with the readers?” Pastor Pam: “We all have a preordained purpose in life, so as we learn to tap into that purpose we will have fulfillment and enjoy our life, which will drive you and motivate you.We are a royal priesthood and chosen generation.” ESEM: “How would you express the dreams of dreamers, helping people to use their imagination to live their dreams ?” Pastor Pam: “The bible tells us we are created in the image of God , and that we were on the inside of him and he spoke us to existence and so when he created us, he put into us purpose, desire, and everything we need to be successful in this life. With that in mind, we have to focus in on the inside of us and search and pull out what God has put in us in order to bring it in to reality. I remember I preached a sermon (message) on dreams of dreamers, the bible says, without a dream, an imagination, the people will parish .God said he would bless us above and beyond our wildest imagination.”

Beauty Tips

ExpoStyles Model

EYES:*Prevent eyeliner from slipping and

fading quickly by tracing your eye pencil line with a matching shade of powder eye color. *Trace along your lash line with eye shadow instead of pencil for soft emphasis. *Lighter color on the lids helps to open up the eyes. *Create a bit of glimmer around the eyes by using a dot of light, shimmery eye color at the tear duct of the eyes and then blend; this also widens the eyes.
