Gloss & Toss Hair Care shares hair styling tips with Alpha Gamma Delta UCLA

Alpha Gamma Delta, UCLA, Gloss & Toss Hair Care & a Hollywood hair stylist.  What an event.

Posted by Gloss & Toss founder Billy Lowe

I was invited to speak to the most amazing group of young ladies this past Saturday and it was a houseful. The ladies of Alpha Gamma Delta invited me to share hair tips and style ideas, hair care and trends with them as they were preparing for an exciting week of Recruitment 2017 (formerly called “rush”). Not only did I get to share ideas and thoughts with them, they shared their home, laughter, good cheer and “ending cheer” with me while I was there.  The upcoming week for them represented a time when nearly 1,000 UCLA students visited and toured the Sorority houses for Recruitment Week 2017, all deciding and hoping to be accepted into their chosen Sorority

Pet Safety: The best time to walk your dog in summer

DOG WALK TIPS Gloss and TossSummer safety for walking your dog.

As a Leaping Bunny cruelty free hair care brand, we are committed to NO ANIMAL TESTING AND NO ANIMAL CRUELTY.

During hot weather conditions, it’s important to take certain precautions, make schedule adjustments, and stay informed about our pets’ safety. Many of our colleagues, friends and family have dogs and we know how much dogs love their walks. But dogs also love pleasing their owners. The unfortunate thing here, is that dogs will go on walks even if they’re uncomfortable out of loyalty and love!  As owners, we have to be aware (and kind) when it comes to harsh weather conditions be they hot or cold. So walk your dog in the early morning (most experts agree before 9am) or late at night (after 7pm ideally).  ABC 7 shared some asphalt temperature information as well.

Best shave tips for men – Gloss & Toss Hair & Scalp Healing Oil

hair and scalp healing oil pre shave for men

Pre-shave oils provide the best results for a great shave.  The Gloss & Toss Hair & Scalp Healing oil is an all natural oil for hair and scalp and can be used all over body for smoothing, moisture treatments, manicures/pedicures, and just for him, a pre-shave oil to give you smoother and closer results.

To use:

  • Apply a palm full of Gloss & Toss Hair & Scalp Healing Oil and massage into facial area (or other body part(s)).  Leave on for 2-3 minutes to soften facial hair and to nourish skin prior to shaving.
  • Apply a light exfoliator over oil and gently exfoliate facial area working in round and round motions.  Use added water if needed to keep a smooth application. Exfoliation helps lift facial hair and prepare skin/hair for shaving. Exfoliation helps reduce ingrown hair and irritation, and also gives a closer shave. Exfoliation is used as a method to remove layers of dead skin cells to reveal brighter skin surface and to allow better results in your skin care ritual.
  • Rinse with warm water. Apply shave gel or cream and shave as usual.  For best results and to prevent irritation, always shave with the hair (in the same direction of hair growth) rather than against hair growth.

This simple pre-treatment will leave skin looking and feeling noticeably smoother and brighter.
