Product Reviews: Acca Kappa Protection Brush

Hair is an important asset to the appearance of women and men. The first step in getting and maintaining healthy, long hair is to condition it well and use the proper tools in styling. A good bristle hair brush can help keep the hair smooth, shiny, untangled, reduce breakage and hair drop during brushing. Proper technique is the key when taking care of hair.

Charles Worthington New York City Chic Styling Tips

Charles Worthington New York City

Step by Step Styling Tips

Universally flattering when either curly or straight, the longer-length soft layers give loads of urban volume. And because this step by step guide is tailored to our Takeaways range, you can make sure your hair stays protected from NYC stresses whilst still embodying the ultimate city chic.

1. For succulent soft waves and curls, begin with a shampoo that will clean the hair without weighing it down. Use Moisture Seal Shampoo and Conditioner to make hair feel amazingly fresh, invigorated and instantly energized from root to tip.

2. If your hair is naturally frizzy or curly, start by smoothing the hair with Time Defy Salon Finish Style Reviving Mousse to get the hair nice and sleek and blow-dry just using your fingers. This will help keep the style for longer.

3. Using a curling wand, start around the face and work back towards the crown. In small sections - ALWAYS curling in the same direction - place the heated wand at the root of the hair twisting the ends around the barrel. This will create a strong wave, rather than a curl. Finish with a spritz of Brilliant Shine All Over Gloss Spray to give shine and hold.

4. Underneath, take larger sections and tong the opposite way. This will create a tousled effect and stop the waves bunching together.

5. Finally, pull your fingers through the hair for a shiny tousled look.

Product Review: Lancome Hypnôse Precious Cells Mascara

Lancome Hypnôse Precious Cells Mascara 
the volume revolution for lashes

A mascara which activates an immediate potential of visibly densified, stronger lashes, in better condition. Lash-by-lash volume and spectacular length, as well as visibly denser lashes.

From 28 days, the formula enriched with Lash Densifier Complex visibly regenerates lashes. With a visibly denser fringe, lashes are longer, as though regenerated. Each day, Hypnôse Precious cells reveals lash growth potential: mature lashes preserve their length and optimal thickness, whilst new lashes are more visible.

Led by a panel of 101 women during 4 weeks, a test of self-assessment revealed Hypnôse Precious Cells’ spectacular action on the visible regeneration of lashes.

After using Hypnôse Precious Cells, women perceive:
A more intense make-up result 86%
Lashes are lengthened 90%
Lashes are thickened 79%
Captivating eyes 77%
After 4 weeks, 85% of the women are satisfied with the performance of Hypnôse Precious Cells.

They perceive, after make-up removal:
Lashes in better condition, as regenerated 62%
Protected lashes 62%
Nurtured lashes 69%

In addition, 77% of the women reported a reduced loss of lashes during make-up removal.

Hypnôse Precious Cells contains Complex Lash Densifier, a combination of ultra-successful assets consisting mainly of a plant extract of Malus domestica - already present in the cream formula of Absolue Precious Cells - and capable of restoring the environment of the epidermic stem cells. This cell extract from a specific apple variety, selected for its high resistance, contains a complex association of cellular structural components such as peptides, lipids and sugars that can be assimilated by cells.

Key Ingredients
Madecasoside, an extract of Centella asiatica used in the care hair loss-prevention and known for its efficiency, and Arginine, known to help to re-densify fibers.

Lancôme innovates with a helical brush, specifically developed for Hypnôse Precious Cells’ cream texture. A unique brush to unfurl lash-by-lash volume.

Application: Place the brush on the lash fringe. Let the flat side of the brush glide over the lashes from root to tip in a zigzag movement. After 5 seconds, reapply to boost the volume result.

Color: 01 Densifying Black

Price: RM95

Reviews: My eyes are small plus my lashes are not naturally curl. So I need to use eye lash curlers before I apply my mascara. Overall, I feel that this mascara is easy to apply and glides on. No irritation on my eyes. The good things is that it will not lump up or stick the lashes together. Create Lash-by-lash volume and density. I choose 01 Densifying black to enhance my eyes. After 2 coats, the results, my eyes look awake & open up. This mascara is easy to remove.

Acca Kappa Challenge Kick Start at The Belfry Salon, Tangs Pavilion KL

Hair is now shiner, healthier and my curls are nicely set. 
Wow! my hair looks luscious and volumize. 
Like I just stepped out of the hair salon. 

Acca Kappa was founded as a brush-making company in Treviso, Italy in 1869. The company was created based around three basic principles: simple design, high quality production and natural materials. Known as the finest Italian hair brush makers in the world, Acca Kappa has been manufacturing their products for over 140 years. 

With the strong belief that quality products will sell by themselves, Acca Kappa is a brand of quiet elegance: subtle, alluring yet demure, calm yet strong and with its products rich in flavor and kind in nature, Acca Kappa is truly an innocent beauty in a class of its own.

New! Protection Brush

Acca Kappa has launched its new hair brush in June 2011. This new Protection Brush is specifically designed for delicately micro-massaging your scalp to give you a "feel good factor" and great hair, of course. It is made from Reforested Beechwood, with special Nylon Looped bristles, move easily through the hair, effectively detangling the hair without damaging the structure. 

The looped bristles also gently massage the scalp, stimulating microcirculation which is beneficial to the hair follicals. The Natural Rubber cushion absorbs and distributes the pressure evenly, ensuring a more delicate brushing action on scalp and hair. Protection Brush Price: RM150. 

Today, Acca Kappa carries about over 200 different kinds of brushes and is used by the members of the British royal family and American talk show host Oprah Winfrey. 

Acca Kappa Brushes and Products
Variations of brushes are immense and they meet the different needs of the customers. For instance, that the standard brush you used to comb out your hair every day and every night is not the same one you should be utilizing for a blow-dry.
