No Lather, No Problem When Washing With Famous WEN By Chaz

Does your hair shine enough?

Many of us would say, not really, but we still don’t know how to get glossy strands. Famous L.A. stylist Chaz Dean has a theory, and it has to do with your current shampoo routine. He claims that most shampoos and conditioners are secretly packed with harsh chemicals, and these ingredients not only weaken the hair but rob strands of their natural oils.

That is why the hair guru developed his iconic Wen Hair no lather shampoo system. These safe and calming formulas are derived from herbal and other plant-based extracts that bring nourishment, moisture and shine back to hair of any type and texture. WEN’s cleansing conditioners not only smell fabulous in Lavender, Sweet Almond Mint, Fig and others but also fortify the hair and give it new vitality.

Bustle writer Emily McClure was intrigued by WEN because her own locks are limp, fine and not as shiny as she would like. So she sampled the QVC advertised brand’s no lather shampoo for one week and recorded her results.

Emily began washing with WEN daily in the morning and liking the volume it seemed to bring to her fine hair. She blew it dry and used her favorite heated styling tools and was able to shape a gorgeous hair style each time. Even her close girlfriends immediately noticed Emily’s shiny soft tresses, and her hair selfies showed the results. See,

The only problem Emily noticed was during her WEN routine. If she skipped a wash or tried to use WEN at night before bedtime, she saw hair that couldn’t hold a style for long. When she returned to the daily morning WEN wash, the problem was solved.

If Emily could get out of bed on time, she would reach for WEN By Chaz again.

Transforming the Fashion Industry with Fabletics

It may be difficult to succeed in Fashion, especially when Amazon is famed for controlling more than 20 percent of the e-commerce market. Nonetheless, Kate Hudson’s Fabletics has conquered all odds, and the venture has grown to a whopping $250 million business within three years. The firm has adopted a subscription strategy to sell clothes to its customers. The strategy is simple, a client likes a brand that she or he aspires, and this pushes the individual a little. Blending this with subscription and accessibility, the client gets an awesome combination.


For ages, the value of services or products has normally been determined by price and quality. However, with a recent change in economics, such a combination is insufficient to bring competition or guarantee success. Instead, features such as brand recognition, last-mile service, exclusive design, gamification, and customer experience are gaining importance as the current determiners of high-value to the modern-day consumer.


Comparing themselves to Warby Parker and at times Apple, the strategy that Fabletics has adopted together with its positioning is well paying for the fashion subscription. This can be attributed to their goals of opening several physical stores that will be an addition to the already existing ones in Illinois, Hawaii, California, and Florida.


According to the General Manager of Fabletics, the secret to the brand’s success is its belief in coming up with modern and reimagined type of a valuable brand. The membership strategy is also what gives them room to provide trendy fashion and personalized service cheaply.


Reverse Showrooming


Showrooming is where buyers browse offline and then purchase their desired items elsewhere at a lower price. Unlike their business rivals who are getting kicked out of the business by showrooming, Fabletics have turned back the model owing to the unmatched way they began. Rather than get a negative, Fabletics have used browsing to their advantage. Through it, the firm has been able to gain a large membership. When an individual shops and tries a piece of clothing, it also goes to their online shopping cart. Fabletics is never worried where in the store the customer will buy her clothes; they believe retail is another service element.


Why Fabletics is meant for you


Fabletics is a fitness apparel firm that operates on monthly membership subscription structure. When you subscribe to the VIP membership, your first outfit will only cost you $25, and you will also get a discount on la carte products. If you believe you will buy a product, then VIP subscription will be the best option as you will not be pressured to purchase anything or be charged a monthly fee. However, the main benefit of subscribing is that you will get monthly outfits that are specifically curated for you in addition to a discounted outfit. If you do not wish to purchase anything, you are free to skip that month, and you will not be charged anything on that skipped month.


When you join Fabletics, you will be able to take a survey on your favorite workout types, and the outfit styles that you prefer. Later, at every month, outfits will be picked for you based on your preference.

The Romans in Hollywood

What comes to mind when you think of great Hollywood pictures set in ancient Rome? Do you like the modern take on ancient life or would you prefer the grandiose spectacle that the 1940’s, 50’s, and 60’s put on? Here are a few of our favorite movies that have entertained and enthralled us.
You can’t go wrong with the film Gladiator released in 2000. This Russell Crowe and Joaquin Phoenix picture have everything you could want in a picture. Great action sequences coupled with a good story. This movie has to be near the top of your list when thinking about movies set in Rome.

The ancient war movie Ben-Hur with Charlton Heston, Jack Hawkins movie released in 1959 was the quintessential Hollywood blockbuster. You had star power and a riveting storyline. Ben-Hur was ahead of its time in Hollywood insofar as it had the largest budget ($15.175 million) and was filmed on the largest movie set in its time. It took almost a full year to shoot. All of this investment garnered 11 academy awards and was the highest grossing picture for 1959.

When you think of movies set ancient Rome the name Spartacus immediately jumps to mind. This Kirk Douglas, Laurence Olivier movie released in 1960 is the measuring stick that all other movies set in ancient Rome are stacked up against. The story of a former slave/gladiator that not only frees himself but his fellow slaves is one that is masterfully told in this film. The film garnered four academy awards and lasting fame.

A Chair of Honor in Rutgers University is Established for Omar Boraie

Omar Boraie is the 76-year-old patriarch of the Boraie Real estate Company. He was born in Egypt where he was a chemistry major until he and the family migrated to the United States in 1972. He noticed that living in Brunswick New Jersey was awful. It was dangerous to walk the streets after dark. Boraie then decided something needed to be done and so, he developed his real estate company to revitalize the area. There were 21 vacated and dilapidated buildings in the area that needed to be torn down to make room for new and better buildings. He bought all those buildings. Boraie’s company constructed Albany Street Plaza Tower One.

In 2015, Rutger’s University established the Omar Boraie Chair in Genomic Science ( that’s the highest standard of excellence in the medical college. The new position was established in honor of all the things Boraie has done for New Brunswick, New Jersey in over 40 yeras. Mr. Boraie promised to contribute $1.5 million to establish the Boraie Chair. It became part of the 18 chair campaign to get other people to donate up to $3 million a chair.

The field of genomic science is a relatively new form of developing new and effective cancer treatments that are genetically based. This cancer treatment is for patients who are no longer responding to the medicines they are presently getting. The new treatments should help different types of cancers, especially, those patients with very poor diagnoses and the rarer forms of the disease. Omar Boraie is instrumental in helping to turn New Brunswick, New Jersey into Health Care City.

Shridar Ganesan, MD, Ph.D. who joined Rutgers in 2005 was given the Omar Boraie Chair in Genomic Science because of his work in the field of cancer treatment. He was a member of the staff at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute at Harvard Medical School and considered one the top leaders in the field. According to Dr. Ganesan, cancer isn’t that simple a disease. It’s a collection of diseases that each have their own unique features.

Rutgers genomic science cancer study had attracted the attention of former President Obama who announced in 2015 during his Presidential address that there was going to be a national Precision Medicine Initiative focused on finding a cure for cancer and other diseases. Rutgers is only one of the medical colleges, and the first, that’s working on genomic science cancer study.
