Little known hair facts from

If you’re a fan of on Facebook then you know we love amazing hair facts. Here are ten hair truths that wow our team of colorists!

1) Hair grows at about 1.25 centimeters or 0.5 inches per month. That’s about 15 cm. or 6 in. per year!

2) Gender is not one of the traits that can be identified through hair analysis, but hair is frequently used in genetic testing.

3) The scientific term for gray hair is “canities.”

4) A strand of hair is stronger than a copper wire of equivalent diameter.

5) Black hair is the most common hair color in the entire world, red hair is the most rare.

6) Each strand of hair can contain up to 14 different elements including traces of Gold!

7) Your hair does not grow slower in the winter. Less fruits and veggies in the diet combined with drier weather, makes hair appear less healthy during winter months.

8) There is no such thing as gray hair. Hair is either pigmented or white. When white hairs grow next to pigmented hairs the result is a dull, grayish cast.

9) Hair color can not lighten previously colored hair. To achieve a lighter color you must use a lightening product like bleach or color remover to lift out pigment.

10) Human hair is used by eco-friendly volunteer groups to clean up oil spills.

Every Successful Business does it, why can’t you?

“Positively Living, Positively Women”

In fact everyone does it but not all successfully. Let me explain….
In speaking with a friend whose business was failing quickly, I asked how are sales? She replied, “I don’t sell. I try, but it’s just not me”.

Everyone sells–the business owner, the job seeker, the parent, a participant in a relationship (or seeking one) and every employee in the world.

That’s right, everyone sells; it’s just that not all are successful. On today’s episode of Positively Living we want to help you be successful. Biz owner’s need for sales is obvious, job seekers are selling their skills and talent to a prospective employer, parents try to sell good behavior to their child, those in a new relationship tend to sell themselves, and employees are constantly representing (selling) the positive attributes of their company.

Our guest Dari Mullins is a highly successful salesperson who has agreed to enlighten us on which traits and actions can turn a so-so business into a successful entity while making their clients their best promoters!

Take your sales to the highest level by joining us today at 2 pm for the next episode of “Positively Living” on 1350 am, or online at
