EEK! Got Thinning Hair?

I am not quite 40 yet, but have been experiencing significant hair loss over the past several years.  To be perfectly honest, it was quite frightening when it first started.  Let's discuss a few common causes for hair loss and treatments.

There are several very common reasons for hair loss and they are:


When your husband and children begin commenting on finding "Mommy Hairs" all over the house, you start to dread brushing your hair or even running your hands through your hair in fear of how much you are going to see...then it's time to start finding causes and solutions.  Many of the above are simple fixes: avoid putting your hair back, make sure you are eating properly, stop blowdrying and or ironing hair, and instead of brushing your hair when it's wet either wait until it is completely dry OR use a comb or pick instead of a hairbrush.  

If you attempt the simple fixes and still aren't noticing any improvement, the next step would be to go to your physician.  In my case, I did notice some difference but not enough, so I went in for a check up and discovered I was lacking several key hormones.  Once I discovered the problem and balanced my body, I noticed a HUGE difference.  I also began using shampoo and conditioners specifically addressing hair loss

There are also several other types of products we offer here at beautystoredepot for hair loss.  

If you're looking for a GREAT way to begin treating your hair loss try looking at a kit.  This will give you all the products you need for a minimum of a month allowing you to easily start a new regime.

With so many options there is absolutely no reason to go ONE MORE DAY worrying about your thinning hair.

2016 HOT Fall Lash Looks

You just gotta love Fall!  The changing of the leaves, cooler weather, kids back in school, change in wardrobe selection.....something about it just makes me want to be adventurous and try something new with my makeup.

There are a lot of makeup trends making a comeback this season (some my old school self is just having trouble getting behind):  blue eyeshadow, smudged eyeliner, sparkly eyes, but for eyelashes there's something for everyone and we have just the products to help you achieve these HOT Fall Lash Looks!

60's Retro Lash

It seems like almost any type of eyelash is in this fall.  My personal favorite is the picture above which reminds me of the 60's and a Twiggy kind of look, but the clumpy look has made a comeback this year too!

Classic Clumpy
The great thing about BOTH of these HOT Fall looks, is that I feel like no matter what kind of eyelash day I am having, I can make it work.  

Most women by the age of 20 (even before really) have found their preferred method of eyelash application, but one thing many may not have yet tried are eyelash enhancers.  GrandeLASH, RevitaLash Advanced, and Rozge Cosmeceutical Renew Eyelash Revitalizer are all fantastic options!  With daily application of these products you will see longer and fuller lashes typically after 4-6 weeks.  I am just months from 40 and began using GrandeLASH just over a month ago.  I have definitely seen a dramatic difference in both my length and volume.  Starting with a product like any of these, will give you a fantastic base lash to start with and lead to dramatic and beautiful eyelashes. 

Eyeliners and mascaras are both personal preferences in my opinion and we have a large selection of both even for the most selective of individuals.   An award winning product that combines an eyelash enhancer with an eyeliner has become a hot product here at beautystoredepot.  Grande Liner - Rich Black is a liquid eye liner that will also enhance your lashes.  The reviews on this product are fantastic and such an innovative idea to make a daily used product actually work in your favor!  

Until next time, stay you and stay beautiful!

Happy 11th Birthday To Us!

It's hard to believe that it was 11 years ago that we started beautystoredepot in a small 100 square foot room at the back of a salon.  My...how we have grown and how things in the industry have changed!  One thing that hasn't changed is our company philosophy of providing our customers with the absolute best products, at the best price, and with amazing and personalized customer service.

Over the years several trends have come and gone throughout the beauty industry.  Where we once relied on magazines for our top beauty news, we now rely more on blogs and online articles.  Makeup trends continue to come and go..and this will never change.  The one beauty trend that will never go away is the desire to have young, healthy, glowing skin and the confidence that comes along with it.  That being said, I thought I would list some of my favorite beauty products that I simply can't go without and have amazing results.

  • Clarisonic - I purchased my very first Clarisonic in my mid-twenties (almost 15 years ago) and have been hooked ever since.  My husband laughs at me because I take it everywhere, even for just one night!  I saw such an immediate change in the look and feel of my skin that it was simply undeniable.  If you don't own one, buy one now!  Not only will it clean your face 3-5x better than washing with your hands alone, because of the deeper cleanse your other beauty products will work even better and penetrate deeper.  
  • Obagi Vitamin C Serum - Another product that I started using in my mid-twenties.  The days I forget, I can immediately notice my skin doesn't have that amazing glow.  If you're just starting out, go with the 10% and then you can work your way up.  
  • Elta MD Sun Care - I started using the sunscreen when my husband brought some home to try.  I was reluctant (I'll be honest, when I use something that works I typically don't switch) but I was SO happy I gave it a shot.  BEST SUNSCREEN EVER!  I personally use the Broad Spectrum SPF 30.  It's lightweight, doesn't break me out, and feels amazing!
  • gloMinerals gloLiquid Lips - I rarely wear lipgloss and never wear lipstick.  I simply can't stand the feel of a lipstick.  When I do wear anything, it's been gloLiquid Lips for over 10 years now.  I LOVE the Darling color.  It's neutral and goes with anything.  Practically everytime I wear it I receive compliments, but I suppose that could be because I am actually wearing makeup!
  • Billy Jealousy Salad Days Body Scrub - This bottle is huge, smell is amazing, and it's gentle enough to be used daily.  Leaves my skin so incredibly soft.  
  • gloMinerals Smoky Eye Kit - I was never able to achieve the smoky eye look until this amazing kit!  The directions made it so easy and allowed me to make it my own too.  
  • Avene Thermal Spring Water - I started out just using this to set my makeup and now use it for all kinds of things:  son's diaper rash, kids booboos, everyday after washing my face, and periodically throughout the day if my skin starts to feel a little dry.
