Women and their Hair: News About Age-Related Changes

Women and Their Hair: News About Age-Related Changes

BIOTA Botanicals Offers Women a Safe, Effective, Clinically Tested Shampoo & Serum to Combat Thinning-Damaged Hair

New York, NY / PR Newswire / — Everyone loses hair, every single day. We see strands everywhere – the shower, in the brush, on our pillows. Thinning in women usually means a reduction in volume as well as less physical hairs on our head. As strands diminish in number, there is a lack of density.

The American Hair Loss Association estimates that women make up roughly 40 percent of Americans experiencing thinning hair and the majority of women will experience some thinning by midlife – putting it right up with weight gain, dry skin and wrinkles.

It is completely natural for hair to thin over time. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, we normally shed about 100 hairs a day. So, while 85-to-95 percent of the hair on your head is growing, the other 5-to-15 percent is in a resting stage. After “resting,” this hair falls out — often while you’re brushing or shampooing it — and is replaced by new growth.

To further complicate matters, women are further blessed with two major life changes, pregnancy and menopause, and the [fabulous] hormonal shifts that accompany them. These, too, have an effect on the state of our hair.

However, while people unabashedly discuss their unhappiness with most natural age-related occurrences, thinning hair – especially for women – is the 800 lb. gorilla. Thinning hair is terribly personal and emotional.

According to John Van Houten, BIOTA Botanicals, “The problem with thinning hair is not always what’s visible. It’s how it shakes a woman’s self-esteem. For women especially, who put so much emotional value on their hair, it can be absolutely devastating for their self-image and emotional well-being.”

Here’s the good news for when your hair pulls a disappearing act: there is HOPE!

One simple way to combat thinning-damaged hair can be found right in the hair care aisle. BIOTA Botanicals Advanced Herbal Care line of shampoos, conditioner and leave-in serum for Thinning-Damaged Hair, with the exclusive ingredient Herbal BioComplex B11 is a clinically tested and proven solution for women (and men) experiencing thinning hair. Herbal BioComplex B11, BIOTA’s proprietary combination of herbal extracts with naturally occurring minerals and essential fatty acids, works by nourishing the scalp, acting from the inside out. Regular and continued use revitalizes the appearance of hair and has dramatically shown to help with thinning hair, allowing faster growing, fuller, stronger, denser and thicker looking hair.

"The Interview" Now Playing On Google Play, YouTube, Xbox and Dedicated Website

Sony Pictures To Distribute "The Interview" Online Beginning Christmas Eve Through Google Play, YouTube Movies, Microsoft's Xbox Video and Dedicated Website
Film To Be Widely Available On Demand Throughout The United States

The Interview

Pervasive Language, Crude and Sexual Humor, Nudity, Some Drug Use and Bloody Violence

In the action-comedy The Interview, Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen) run the popular celebrity tabloid TV show 'Skylark Tonight.' When they discover that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is a fan of the show, they land an interview with him in an attempt to legitimize themselves as journalists. As Dave and Aaron prepare to travel to Pyongyang, their plans change when the CIA recruits them, perhaps the most unlikely candidates, to 'take out' Kim Jong-un.

3 Popular, In-demand Fabrics that Apparel Makers Rely On

3 Popular, In-demand Fabrics That Apparel Makers Rely on
Fabric Selection Inc. provides designers and manufacturers high quality materials at competitive prices.

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- For apparel designers everywhere, having access to the right materials at the right price is a key aspect of business. Material can easily make or break the design of a garment, and different fabrics hold different appeals and can serve varying purposes. In addition to acquiring the ideal material, cost also has an important role to play. In order to stay competitive, designers and manufactures have to ensure that they're able to maintain healthy profits by utilizing materials that are of the highest quality while still remaining affordable. As a major distributor of apparel materials nationwide and in the LA area, Fabric Selection Inc. is able to provide fabric at wholesale in Los Angeles that are also competitively priced. Fabric Selection also has a wide range of popular materials that designers demand the most. Below are some of the more popular options.
  1. Printed Lace. Printed lace is always in vogue with fashion designers because of its flexibility and reliability. Customers always respond strongly to printed lace because of the emotion that it invokes. As a material style, lace holds much significance to the wearer of the design, and printed lace is noteworthy for being able to harness and convey that same emotion. Printed lace looks outstanding on everything from Friday night dress, to a casual wear shirt, to formal evening wear if handled by the right designer.   
  2. Jacquard Material. This material can be used in clothing for striking results. Jacquard material is particularly popular as for making suits, jackets, and skirts. It's easily washed, and any wrinkles normally quickly fall out on their own without the need to iron. Jacquard normally comes in a multitude of different solid colors which eliminates the need for die.
  3. Knit. Knitted fabrics have come back into popularity in large part due to its homemade look. The past several years of fashion and consumerism have been dominated by products that have emphasized customization, individualism, and craftsmanship. In short, a look that is as far away from mass produced as possible is a good thing, and, when it comes to apparel, knit fabrics can make it happen. This is how designers can invoke the same sense of fondness that one would feel for an item that was made by a close friend or loved one.
These are just a few of the nearly unlimited fabric and material choices that a designer has available to them. To help make them make the right selections, designers lean on respected distributors like Fabric Selection who have the expertise, resources, and range of products to help contribute toward the success of their product. With modern production facilities located in the heart of the Los Angeles Fashion District, Fabric Selection is able to immediately ship any of their outstanding online materials immediately. To help make businesses even easier for their clients, Fabric Selection owns the copyright on all of their prints so their customers can use them at their own convenience without concern. For more information on Fabric Selection's wide selection of competitively priced materials call (213) 747-6297 or visit their website at
