Beauty Is Giving For Breast Cancer Awareness Month

beauty items benefiting breast cancer by barbies beauty bits

As most of you know, the month of October is breast cancer awareness month. And there are many beauty companies out there that have a limited edition pink product that they sell where as a percentage of these sales will benefit breast cancer research and more.

Before I get into the brands and pink items, I wanted to share with you some statistics on breast cancer as 1 in 4 women are diagnosed daily, and 85% of women diagnosed with breast cancer have no family history of it.

Overall about 1 in 8 U.S. women (approx. 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. In 2016, an estimated 246,660 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 61,000 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer.

Tips and Tricks for Making Your Limp, Thinning Hair Thicker With RevivHair Placode Booster

Tips and Tricks for Making Your Limp, Thinning Hair Thicker With RevivHair Placode by barbies beauty bits

Thinning hair is not just a problem for men; it is something that women can also experience. And with this modelesque generation portrayed in magazines and reality TV shows, for women, it can be a real blow to your self-esteem.

I was surprised to read that the average age for females dealing with thinning hair is 25 to 35 and not just later in life due to menopausal changes.  Some statistics show that one in four women have thinning hair, for other reasons like stress and genetics.

Additionally, thinning hair for women is different than in men.  You see men lose hair in bald patterns, while women lose volume, making it harder to treat and camouflage.  Despite this thinning hair, it does not sentence you to a life of dull and unstylish tresses. In fact, there are several things that you can do to camouflage these areas.


So if you want to find out how you can make your hair thicker continue reading.

For this post, I have partnered up with, located in beautiful San Francisco California.  This company specializes in unique and innovative clinical treatment serums, one being their first-of-its-kind scalp cosmetic topical, the RevivHair Placode Booster Serum.

RevivHair Placode Booster Serum
This cruelty-free scalp cosmetic topical serum has thickeners in it to include Niacinamide, Caffeine, Panthenol and unique polymers that can help with densifying and revitalizing the hair. According to their website this leave-in booster serum is targeted at reducing hair loss and encouraging new hair growth; it helps boost the development of healthy hair follicles, lessen thinning hair, strengthen fibers against breakage, and thicken existing hair strands for fuller-looking and thicker-feeling hair.

How To Use The Hair Booster Serum
The product is very easy to use and derived from all natural ingredients, which is a plus in my book. It is a once-daily application, about one to two droppers. The RevivHair 60 mL bottle is supposed to last between 37 to 75 days since a full dropper dispenses 0.8 mL.

Statics on the RevivHair Placode Booster Serum
  • In a 60-day, 23-person consumer study of Placode Booster Serum, 87% of consumers tested noted a reduction in the appearance of falling hair.
  • 92% agreed that their hair appeared thicker or healthier
  • 74% of testers also saw a decrease in the appearance of thinning scalp areas; 92% said their hair seemed fuller or more supple.

Some other Tips and Tricks for Making Your Limp, Thinning Hair Thicker
Aside from adding a hair thickening product like the RevivHair Placode Booster into your hair care regimen, there are also some other tricks that you can add to help your hair appear lush and thick.

Salon & Style Tricks  
A style Redo: One of the best ways to conceal thinning hair is with a hairstyle that will add a lot of texture and layers to your hair.  This may mean cutting it short, WTF??? I know.  If you are a long hair fan like myself and having thinning hair, you may need to try a shorter style, as long hair tends to draw more attention to those thinning areas.  Scary I know, as it feels like a catch 22, with thin hair and now I need to cut it?  But shorter hair can add a lot of texture and movement to your style while at the same time making your hair appear thicker.  Longer hair, on the other hand, can draw attention to the problem areas.

Salon & Style Tricks  to make your hair thicker by barbies beauty bits

Color: Not only does color add more body and thickness to your thinning hair, but it can also be used to draw the eye away from unusually thin spots. You want to have a double-process, as a single process can make your hair appear dull and flat.  So using a combination of lowlights, highlights, and color accents, your stylist can do wonders for your thinning hair!

The Flip:  Yeah I know this can be scary as you don’t want to look like DONALD TRUMP! We are not talking about a comb over here, but rather changing up the direction of your part! You see our hair becomes trained laying in the same position for years, so changing it up by flipping your part to the other side can add some instant volume.

Speaking about parts, if you are like me a part can show some of my thinning, so a style without a harsh, prominent part can also work wonders.

Hair Styling Products
There are a wide variety of hair styling products on the market that can be used to conceal thinning, limp hair. Products such as thickening powders, shampoos and conditioners can do a lot for thinning hair. Also, products like dry shampoos and texturing spray are a must to add volume.  YOU WANT TO stay away from products that can weigh your hair down, so get with your stylist, to see what they recommend, DON’T CHEAP OUT.

Tips to help women who are losing their hair by barbies beauty bits and revivhair placode booster

Using products with the wrong Ingredients: You want to stay away from products with sulfates in them as these are harsh and drying on the hair and scalp.

Styling Tools
Aside from a haircut and products, you can also make your hair appear thicker by adding some volume to the crown.  You can do this with some Velcro rollers.  Just place the rollers in your dry hair and make sure to use a texturing spray.  Blow with some warm air from the hair dryer and set with cool!

Stop Adding To It
There are things that you can be doing to add to the issue of thinning, limp hair. One can be over blow drying your hair. Also, if you are one that uses a brush to dry the hair, the continual pulling, and tugging on the hair can contribute to your hair loss, so stop.  Instead, try air drying your hair some and finish with the brush. Hence you are limiting the exposure of the constant pulling and heat exposure.

As you can see, none of these thinning hair remedies are complicated. Simply by learning how to best style your thinning hair and learning to use the right products, like the RevivHair Placode Booster you can do a great deal to make your hair look like it is both chic and thick.

Wanna try some for yourself?  Well, now you can as Reviv Serum is offering YOU a chance to win this hair booster for yourself!

GIVEAWAY: Eight lucky winners will each receive a full-sized package of new Placode Booster Serum, a $79 product with a current introductory sale price of $44.  Open to the United States or Canada only.
