Suave Keratin Infusion Treatment is discontinued for good reason!

Keyword: suave keratin, keratin treatment, hair straighteners

Keratin Treatments are the newest chemical treatment that helps keep your hair smooth from frizz. Prices on treatments done in a salon rage anywhere from $100-$300. More recently, companies have been putting out over the counter kertain products for much less. Though results don’t claim to be as amazing as a professional job, for some people its better for the sheer fact that it saves them money. It’s the same as buying boxed dye and doing it yourself!


However,  is it worth saving money when doing it yourself means loss of hair?! Suave Professional Keratin Infusion has quite a problem on their hands these days. Apparently several of their consumers have claimed the their hair has fallen out prior to use. Others say that their hair has been badly damaged. There were a few good reviews, but they were hard to come by through all the negative ones.  Here are just a few of the reviews that I found while searching online.


“I applied the first out of 3 tubes into my hair and within minutes my hair was falling off in chunks. I immediately washed out my hair with more chunks coming out into the bath tub. I put the second tube on because it is supposed to seal the cuticle then I flew into my hairdressers salon on to have her chop ALL OF MY HAIR OFF (Approx 6 inches) and she told me that she had never seen hair do this before”


“I used the Suave Keratin Infusion kit on my hair and it is ruined…f-r-i-e-d. I did this about 2 weeks ago and everyday my hair is a little shorter in certain area’s. All the way around my face my hair is breaking off. I didn’t have bangs but now I do and they are getting shorter by the day. I’ve tried heavy conditioners to help but nothing seems to help. It took me about 5 years to grow my hair out this long and now it is gone. Oh how I wish I could go back in time and rethink my decision.”


“I used the product and I worked great. People have been complemeting my hair. I have had professional keratin treatments in the past and is comperable.”


“I HAD beautiful Italian hair, I saw the ad on Tv , their ad is false and misleading, you are lead to believe it’s a keratin smoothing conditioning treatment….I am horrified by the way my hair looks. I’ve had to cut inches off and the remaining looks kinky, dry and damaged”


“I used this shit product last week, JUST for 5 minutes and my hair was falling during the process like I put some acid on it… I washed it very quickly but the damaged was done.”


“I just used this product this morning and it turned out great! Hair is real smooth and soft. I usually use jon freida products to straighten my hair and it will usually leave it feeling heavy. Don’t get me wrong frieda products are great I just love how suave left my hair. Soft and smooth and straight!”

Apparently this product, which you can get for just $12.99 isn’t a keratin treatment at all.  It is more like a perm solution.  It makes sense since a lot of the reviews I read talk about a rotten egg smell. There is the tiniest bit of keratin in one of the products which legally allows them to advertise it as a keratin treatment.  It is FDA approved!  This is why I believe these types of treatments should be left only to professionals.  If someone wants their hair de frizzed that badly, they will come up with the money to pay a stylist to do it. Is it worth putting yourself in danger just to safe a few bucks?


Suave has discontinued the product and is offering services to those with issues, which is the stand up thing to do, but if a product like this never existed, we wouldn’t be in this position. (But then again, I wouldn’t have an article to share with you then ;)    Kidding!) I did read about several people starting action suits, whether they go anywhere…I guess we will wait and see!

She looks good! but she doesn’t look THAT good

Keywords: sofia vergara, no id, ava lounge



Sofia Vergara was denied access to Ava Lounge in Manhattan on Saturday night because she wasn’t able to provide proper photo ID.   The Modern Family star (that I absolutely love!) went to the club to attend a private party for the Broadway musical “Ghost”.   She was denied at the door by the security guard who stood firm on the clubs “no ID, no entry” rule.



Sofia is beautiful on all levels, but there isn’t a 39 year old walking this earth that looks like she’s under 21 haha.



It’ didn’t turn out to be a big deal, Sofia reportedly treated the situation with ease and went on her merry way.  So,  thank you, Ava Lounge, for giving me a reason to go on that little Sofia Vergara picture search today,  she’s always a fun celebrity to check up on every now and again.  Always keeping herself beautiful and busy! She has the most amazing skin ever

Do you feel guilty?

Keyword: cheater, stylish, haircut

The bond between a hair stylist and their clients can be very strong sometimes. We try to keep a business professional relationship with all our clients but when we hear about so much of their personal lives it’s hard not to make a connection with some of them. I know there are plenty of my clients out there that would consider me a “friend” to a certain extent. I am told on a regular basis “I will NEVER go to anyone else but you!”  While that is extremely flattering, I always take it with a grain of salt.  There are so many reasons why a client might have to see another stylist. It doesn’t always mean they like someone else better. In fact, if I am unable to take a client when they are in need of having their hair done, I have a good friend who I always refer them to. I’m not threatened. I don’t get offended if one of my regulars comes in and I notice their last cut was not by me. I don’t take walk-ins, so I understand there are going to be those clients that need something last minute and will need to go somewhere else for a quick service. I never make my clients feel guilty for doing so.  I would prefer them to wait if they can, but I understand the busy-ness of peoples lives. Personally, I don’t think you should ever feel guilty if you “cheat” on your hairdresser.

Stonybrook University Hospital is home to Rainbow’s!

Hi everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts today – I am supposed to be updating you guys three times per day – and most days I do that and more! However, I must apologize today as I was not able to post. My father is ill, and I needed to be by his side at Stonybrook Hospital today.


Everyone there was really nice, and very respectful when I introduced Jacqueline as my partner. I was glad about this, because I needed her support and to hold her hand today. We are very open in public – we don’t make out because we respect PDA boundaries, but 99.9% of the time, if you see us in public, we will be holding hands or arms. We also freely share the occasional small kiss.


Anyhow, I digress on the awesomeness that is my lesbian superstar relationship….


SO….today at Stonybrook there were two “gay friendly” things that caught my attention! The first was the Starbucks in the lobby which was awesome and huge. The second was the window(s) of the Pediatric Emergency Room, which was a rainbow patterned display of butterflies (as seen in the pic above). Anyhow – ill be back to posting it up tomorrow, and I ask that if you read this, please keep my family in your thoughts. See ya tomorrow my lovely little “gabies”!

World’s hottest pepper meets casual dining

Keywords: red robin, ghost pepper, fast food


For someone to has to wave their mouth cool when eating a jalapeño, I can’t see myself being brave enough to experience Red Robin’s new Ghost Pepper Burger… a ghost chilli pepper, the hottest natural growing pepper in the world,  rates at 855,000 – 1,050,000 units of pungency on the Scoville Scale.  No big deal, only like 400 times hotter than a jalapeño!




Red Robin {with a location in Carle Place in Nassau County, Long Island} will make two new burgers available, starting today – both featuring this scorcher of a pepper.  Where do you stand? Are you a Fiery Ghost Style eater or a Cry Baby??


The Fiery Ghost style contains a ghost pepper sauce and is topped with fried jalapenos and pepper jack cheese. The Cry Baby features crispy onions straws tossed in sriracha dry seasoning with more onions sauteed in Cholula hot sauce and is topped with jack cheese and ghost pepper ketchup.


Reviews that have been leaking out are mixed… some are calling the burgers “orgasmic” while others are  saying they don’t pack much heat.  You be the judge, and let us know… in the mean time, I think I’ll work up enough courage to head out there and try one……………..
