Fashion Flash Book Review: Happy Hair Days by Phillip Kingsley
Bad hair days seem to as much part of a woman’s life as bra shopping and cramps. And when your hair is both thinning or brittle, almost every day can be a bad hair day. Seeral years ago my BFF Anika asked me to go with her to the Phillip Kinsley Salon in NYC. They specialized in treating problem hair and Anika needed a wingman to go with her for a consultation.
AtI was so impressed with the diagnostic interview and suggesed treatment plan. It focused on diet, medica tests she should request from her doctor and daily hair care techniques. Kingsley products were an afterthought and the low key sales approach just made me trust his recommendations more. I ws so impressed. I bought the line of products for a cousin with problem hair.
The salon was in NYC and fairly pricey. So I was thrilled to pick up a copy of Happy Hair Days by Phillip Kingsley. Its a small book packed with genuinely helpful advice and tips including:
- There is no cure for split ends. Only remedy is to cut them off
- Thinning hair is often due to lack of protein and iron in the diet
- If anti- dandruff shampoos are not working, you could have eczema or psoriasis
- A cold water rinse after after a shampoo is not helpful — but a pre-shampoo massage is.
Every page has a useful piece of information and there is not a single pitch for their products. How nice is that?
