Nioxin vs. Bosley

CC by Dan4th

Whether you have been a follower of our blog for a while or you’re new and have done a quick browse-around, you have probably seen us mention Nioxin hair loss products. Recently, we added one of Nioxin’s  popular competitors: Bosley. Bosley is probably a more recognized hair loss brand, as its had commercials and infomercials on television for years. For all of you Nioxin fans who are curious to know some more about Bosley, this blog post is for you. 🙂

Similar to Nioxin, Bosley consists of 3-part systems: Shampoo, Conditioner and Treatment. You can purchase any of the system items individually or all together in the Starter Packs.

There are four different 3-part systems:

  1. BOSDefense for Normal to Fine, Non Color-Treated Hair
  2. BOSDefense for Normal to Fine, Color-Treated Hair
  3. BOSRevive for Visibly Thinning, Non Color-Treated Hair
  4. BOSRevive for Visibly Thinning, Color-Treated Hair

Bosley also offers hair styling products like gel, mousse and hairspray.

If you’re a Nioxin user looking to make a smooth transition to Bosley, following is a list of Nioxin and Bosley’s comparable items:

If You Use Nioxin: Use Bosley:
System 1 or 5 BOSDefense for Non Color-Treated Hair
System 3 or 7 BOSDefense for Color-Treated Hair

System 2 or 6

BOSRevive for Non Color-Treated Hair

System 4 or 8 BOSRevive for Color-Treated Hair
Thickening Gel Styling Gel
Niosprays Styling Hairspray

Good luck. Please comment to share your experience with Bosley!

Flat Iron Your Hair Like a Pro

CC by Lauren Paulsen

Flat irons are the best way to get stick straight hair that shines and moves. However, if you don’t use a flat iron correctly, it can have very damaging effects on your hair. Flat irons can give off quite a bit of heat. If you saw the much-awaited season premier of Jersey Shore Season 4 in Italy last night, you saw Deena burn off a good chunk of her hair with a piping-hot hair iron. The following tips to flat iron your hair like a pro will help you avoid damaging it like Deena!

Prevention:
Wash your hair properly. A flat iron is less effective on dirty or oily hair. If you flat iron your hair on a daily basis, use a thermal protection shampoo and conditioner, such as those in the CHI Infra Home Stylist Kit, $40. Side note: try not to flat iron your hair every day.

Do not use any hair products after washing (aside for some thermal protection like CHI 44 Iron Guard Thermal Protection Spray, $11 or a straightening balm like Straight Sexy Hair Power Straight Balm, $11.59).

Dry your hair completely with a professional hair dryer (roots to tips). Even slight moisture can cause damage to your hair AND flat iron.

After your hair is dry, now you may apply the straightening balm and heat protection spray mentioned above.

Comb out any tangles in your hair while you give your hair iron a few minutes to heat up.

Technique:
Of course, start by owning a professional flat iron.

Divide your hair into 4 sections.

Iron sections a maximum of 1 inch wide (beginning at the bottom and moving towards the top).

Do not let the hair iron sit on any one piece of hair for too long. Keep the iron constantly moving.

Comb through hair after each section is straightened.
