I get asked a lot of questions each day. Let's be honest. While I have a great memory for what plum lipsticks are available in a satin finish that wear more than one hour, I'm not a dermatologist. I don't have all of the answers, but I'm willing to ask the right people! Have a question? Ask me! I'll do my best to find out!
Hey Annabel! You're right, I am a long time lover of sulfate-free shampoos! I personally believe they make a tremendous difference in your hair! I know that many of you have had experiences with sulfate-free shampoos and notice additional hair loss. To determine if products like Wen can cause hair loss, I've asked my favorite (and personal) dermatologist Dr. Noëlle S. Sherber, to get to the bottom of hair loss and sulfate-free 'poos.
"There is nothing ingredients-wise about a sulfate-free shampoo that should promote increased hair shedding. However, when a hair follicle is in the growth cycle phase that makes it ready to be shed, the more friction applied to the follicle the sooner it may fall out. Sulfate-free shampoos don't suds up (or do so minimally) so some people scrub their scalps more vigorously with it because they don't have the suds and the slip, so it's hard to tell that the product has been worked into the scalp sufficiently - this could account for some increased shedding."
Bloggers need advice too! I turned to my very wise group of seasoned bloggers to ask what they would suggest. After their initial outrage (you have to love girl friends!), they gave me some ideas.
Here is their list!
Marcia of Beauty Info Zone - Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm, DermaDoctor Wrinkle Revenge Rescue & Protect Eye Balm
Pink Sith- Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream (for moisture) or Peter Thomas Roth Eye Rescue (for circles), Kiehl's Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Eye Cream (it's amazeballs!)
15 Minute Beauty Fanatic- Kiehl's Midnight Recovery (for moisture), Kiehl's Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Eye Cream for anti-aging
The final question for today comes from a long time reader, who has recently started noticing that her skin and summer weather do not get along.
Here is what Dr. Sherber had to say:
It sounds like a typical heat rash (some call it pricky heat or it is technically known as miliaria rubra) that results from inflammation around the sweat-producing glands: http://www.webmd.com/
Why am I not surprised that this is often found in babies? I will admit to being a total child when it comes to dealing with warm weather.
