October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but you can support the cause all year long with these products, tools, and accessories that support breast cancer research, awareness, and a cure.
CHI, by Farouk Systems, has released several Limited Edition Breast Cancer Awareness hot tools over the years. Many are still available. I am a personal fan of the CHI tools (I use them nearly exclusively in my salon) and the pretty pink is a beautiful way to support breast cancer. Most recently, Farouk has teamed up with Bright Pink, a non profit organization dedicated to supporting women in their quest to prevent breast cancer and ovarian cancer.
Philosophy’s beloved Shower for the Cure Shampoo, Bath and Shower Gel is a creamy cleansing formula with a touch of comforting milky notes and a kiss of tangerine nectar for a delicate and feminine scent. For over 12 years now, philosophy donates 100% of its net proceeds from the sale of this product to support the Entertainment Industry Foundation's Women’s Cancer Research Fund.
One of my favorite product lines have been made available in pink to support breast cancer awareness. TIGI's campaign called "TIGI Cares" includes some of their most popular products all dressed up in pink to support the cause. Proceeds are directed to the City of Hope, a research, treatment and education center for cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Bed Head Masterpiece Massive Shine Hairspray, TIGI Bed Head Hard Head Hard Hold Hairspray and TIGI Rockaholic “Dirty Secret” Dry Shampoo, and TIGI Bed Head Manipulator (styling paste) are all available as special editions this October.
You haven't used a great round brush until you've tried a ceramic round brush. These round brushes, and several other style brushes, by Oliva Garden promote amazing shine, volume, and softness in your hair and support breast cancer research all at the same time. They come in a variety of sizes from 1-3/8" to 2-1/8".
FHI Heat flat irons are one of my favorite hot tools, and the pink breast cancer awareness edition is beautiful. Support breast cancer awareness everyday with one of the best flat irons on the market today.
I Am Not My Breast Cancer: Women Talk Openly About Love and Sex, Hair Loss and Weight Gain, Mothers and Daughters, and Being a Woman with Breast Cancer, by Ruth Petalson is a great read for anyone that's ever had breast cancer, knows someone with breast cancer, or would just like an inside glimpse to learn more about this disease.
