Inside The Dark Business Of Human Hair Extensions

If you have hair extensions made from real hair, you’ve probably wondered where they came from and whose head they once belonged to. The New York Times investigated the hair extension business, and the atmosphere sounds to us like the making of a James Bond-like conspiracy movie. The reporter goes behind the scenes at one company in Russia, which is a huge producer of the product because of the higher availability of blond locks (which are more profitable). Keep reading »

The 30-Day Cellulite Challenge: Day 7 & Day 8

We’re a week into my experiment in which I use myself as a lab rat to find out what happens when I attempt to eliminate the cellulite on my rear-end and upper-thighs.
