Bustle Blogger Hopes for Hollywood Hair With WEN’s Famous No-Poo Method

We all desire healthy, shiny, bouncy hair that is easy to manage, but many of us are cursed with hair that lacks shape, volume and manageability. Take blogger Emily McClure, for example. She’s been fighting her fine, limp locks for years now and was hoping at the chance to reverse her shampooing routine. So, she decided to try the no-shampoo system that has revolutionized the way we cleanse our hair.
Chaz Dean has been a well-respected celebrity stylist in LA for years now, and he’s a firm believer in the holistic way of living. He developed the unique WEN hair cleansing conditioners with natural formulas that brought strength, vibrancy and manageability back to hair.  His hair care philosophy works for every hair type on the planet, and Emily McClure decided to take a 7-day hair challenge for Bustle.com.

Emily McClure kept a daily hair diary and took hair photos to keep her readers up on her progress. She chose the Sephora Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner for added body and moisture. Emily McClure did not follow the WEN directions to the tee, but still achieved big, bouncy locks after washing with WEN and then blow-drying and styling her hair. She felt that using so much cleansing conditioner was “actual insanity,” so she used the barest minimum for her medium length hair every time she used the WEN. Visit Guthy-Renker to know more about Wen.

Emily McClure’s hair selfies showed great results with the Wen hair system, but as she tried to modify her hair care schedule, her hair did not respond like she expected. If she skipped a wash altogether, her hair went flat and turned oily.

Inside The Drought with Andy Wirth on KCRW

Being an avid listener of KCRW I stumbled open an amazing interview on my way to work. Press Play with Madeleine Brand is generally what is on when I’m heading to work in the mornings. This particular episode really resonated with me because it was on an important topic. Madeleine was hitting on the upcoming drought and what impact it would have on ski resorts.

Her guest, Andy Wirth, CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings, had plenty to say about this topic. With a decrease in moisture and less snow coming in, Brand wanted to know first off how business was doing. With annual snowfall 25% down from previous seasons, Andy admitted that he barely noticed the lack of snow, when it came to sales and his resorts staying packed with families and friends all playing and having a great time.

During this interview, Madeleine wanted to know what his plans were for the upcoming El Niño. Mr. Wirth express no concern at all and was thrilled to explain what measures could be taken to ensure his guest would have memorable moments at his ski resort. He gave thanks to the advancements in science. Wirth comments that science gives him the ability to make snow if needed during dry seasons, with low snowfall.

Andy Wirth, born a German native in 1963, had visions of making a better future for Squaw Valley and Alpines ski resorts. To the people who know Andy, many would note his kindness and genuine personality.
