Happy New Year and all the best to 2020! The crane in Japan represents good fortune and longevity. This shot is only a small portion of an entire wall covered with long strips of vertically hung cranes. It was taken at the Chandler Museum in Arizona during their current exhibition: “Enduring Japanese American Internment at Gila River”. It was a thought provoking and emotional exhibition about the 16,000 Japanese Americans during the Second World War who were incarcerated to the Gila River internment camp near Chandler just because they looked like the enemy. There was a wall listing the names of each of the 16,655 men, women and children who were there between 1942-45. The same number of cranes were apparently donated and made by people from all over. Never do we ever want to experience the devastating effects of any kind of War. Wishing for greater Peace and Harmony in our World we live in. #yokoscoiffure @ Chandler Museum ... See MoreSee Less

This shot was a sunset taken on January 1, 2020 as I stood on our patio in WV looking out towards UBC and Vancouver Island.
Clinical studies have found that being exposed to “2 hours of nature a day significantly reduce stress hormones up to 800% and activates 500 to 600 DNA segments known to be responsible for healing and repairing the body.”
Incorporating as much of Nature into your daily life and putting some time aside for “zoning out” is so important to our wellbeing. That also means using scientifically-formulated non-toxic plant-based products for both face, scalp, hair and body.
Now, ready to commit to a simple ONE MONTH New Year’s Resolution?… Below is a great Hair Repair Ritual we now carry that will help you reconstruct your hair in JUST ONE MONTH, no kidding!!:
Do you have COLOURED, OVER-PROCESSED, WEAK/LIMP/DULL or VERY DAMAGED HAIR? Are you a DAILY HOT TOOL HAIR ABUSER 🙂 ?… Here’s your Ultra-Repair Ritual:
Ever since they’ve reformulated the ABSOLUE KÉRATINE HAIR CARE LINE, I’ve been loving this as my Go-To Shampoo/Mask for instant repair for daily Hair-Abuse. Use the shampoo and mask (choose from either for fine~med hair or for thick~coarse hair) ONCE A WEEK for ONE MONTH. After that, you can stop for a month and resume the following month or depending on your hair condition and your daily hair maintenance, use accordingly. Use the beauty cream anytime daily. They will instantly work to repair, strengthen and retrieve resilience back into the hair. This is ultimately giving your hair a “retreat”!
Wishing you health and wellbeing for the year 2020.
