The smells of scented candles and natural aromatherapy infuse the cozy, inviting treatment room at Private Moments Natural Skin Therapy. Guests can relax with a cup of tea before indulging in Sandra Hicks's array of holistic skincare services. Although the aesthetician's treatments range from facials to body wraps, waxing, and massages, she shares a common goal with every service: to bring mind, body, and spirit into harmony. Essential oils and herbs, along with other naturally derived products, are used in all of the services to help clients leave feeling beautiful and relaxed.
Although human hair may look smooth, each strand's outer layer—the cuticle—is actually quite rough. Under dry conditions, the tiny scales that cover its surface become raised and brittle, causing hairs to tangle and lose their shine. Conditioner aims to correct this problem by bonding a particular class of molecules—called cationic surfactants—to the cuticle. This is possible because keratin, the protein that makes up most of the hair shaft, bristles with negative ions, which attract the positively charged surfactants, coating each thread in a thin film that weighs it down and reduces frizz. (The negative charge of keratin is also what causes static whenever positive ions are stripped from the hair—the static that makes it possible to stick a balloon to the wall or to power a miner's headlamp.)
The other ingredients in conditioner don't always need ions to do their jobs well. Humectants suck in water from the surrounding air, thereby moisturizing the hair, and oils simply penetrate the cuticle. Glossers coat the hair with light-reflecting polymers, increasing shine, whereas other ingredients raise the acidity level of the conditioner, which helps protect the hair's protein structure.
The holistic experts at Optimum Health fuse Western medicine and alternative therapies to tackle clients’ health and wellness concerns. While chiropractors identify and treat disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, physical therapists treat injuries and disabilities by crafting custom protocols composed of therapeutic exercises, hot and cold therapies, and neuromuscular re-education. Similarly, skilled massage therapists employ deep-tissue, myofascial, and trigger-point therapies to loosen and restore tense sinews. Doctors and nurse practitioners target pain at its source rather than merely covering up the symptoms with painkillers or a plastic tarp. Additionally, Optimum Health's specialists craft custom treatment plans for patients struggling with weight loss, nutrition, and stress as they target the underlying causes of health issues.
Sensibilities Salon's experienced stylists sculpt, dye, or straighten strands using a variety of upscale products including sulfate- and paraben-free J Beverly Hills. Guests breeze through the airy salon entryway, swinging Tarzan-style from minimalist light fixtures into the arms of a modern styling chair for a consultation about their impending service. During a men's or women's signature cut, stylists snips forked ends and imbue each hair fiber with its own individual sense of style and a close-fitting suit jacket. Patrons can supplement cuts with partial or full highlights, opting for a natural-looking color enhancement or bolder hairdo embellishment. Salon-goers suffering from unwieldy hair, overrun with frizz and curls, can straighten out wayward strands in a CHI keratin treatment, lasting two–three hours. The formaldehyde-free formula provides up to nine months of smooth relief from unwanted ringlets, waves, and hair that twists into the dancing geometrical shapes of a Hitchcock film's opening credits.
