CHI Magazine Winter Edition Online Now
 
image of CHI magazine www.chiretail.com – Farouk Systems Group has released their newest edition of their online style and beauty magazine entitled simply, “CHI”. Powered by NXTbook software to enable easy navigation through the pages, the magazine feels almost like a real print periodical. Simply click on the lower corners of the pages to turn the page forward or backward, and if you want to see a portion of the page more closely, a single click zooms in on the area you target, while another click will zoom you back to the double page view. I must say the format truly impressed me.
 
      But even more than the slick interface, I was impressed by the content. This is Farouk’s personal publication and of course all of the advertising and product placement are Farouk-family products: CHI appliances and styling products, Biosilk Hair Care products, etc., but there are some great ideas and articles for readers interested in adding a change to their holiday look.
 
      The regular features include “Letter from Your Hairdresser” (offering seasonal appropriate advice on keeping your hair and skin healthy and beautiful) “Celebrity Now” (featuring the looks of your favorite stars to inspire your own hair and fashion choices) and even a “For Pros Only” feature discussing issues of interest and importance to salon owners and stylists. This is definitely an online publication worth looking over.

A Unique Twist on an Old Favorite – A Blow Dryer to Blow You Away
 
Revolver look blow dryer image www.bathroomgraffiti.com – Just when you think you’ve seen everything, you come across an item that literally stuns you. Probably most of us as children have held our blow dryers out and pretended that it was a gun at some point or another, and apparently, the creators of this product believed that the idea was too good to pass up. So we have “Seche Cheveux Pistolet”, a blow dryer that is designed to look like a revolver – a really BIG revolver.
 
      This item would make a great novelty gift, although it is fully functional. It’s perfect for gun enthusiasts or even those who enjoy items with an American Old West theme. And it is reasonably priced at 39.90 Euros.
 
      On the downside, I was unable to find any information on shipping restrictions and the Bathroom Graffiti website is in French, which may present a problem for those individuals who do not speak that language.

An Item for the “Watch Out For This” Column: Condom Hair Bands
 
The Internet – Stories are spreading all over the internet these days (within the last two to three weeks) of a new form of recycling taking place in China. According to Inventorspot (www.inventorspot.com) a company in Southern China is turning used condoms into hair bands. This has been causing a tremendous amount of controversy, since additionally, the claim is that these hair bands, while being fully recycled, the bands still present a potential health risk, including possible exposure to STDs such as genital warts and HIV. (This last being claimed since many people will hold a hair band in their mouth while gathering their hair.)
 
      Initially reported in the China Daily newspaper, the story has spread rapidly via the internet and the Agence-France Presse news service. It has been reprinted on several of the mainstream internet news services (including Yahoo News). However, at least one consumer watchdog group at www.theconsumerist.com warns that this story smacks of being a little “too far gone” and cites a previous hoax perpetrated by the Chinese media in which a reporter was charged with faking a story about a food vendor who was selling flavored and processed cardboard to customers. The story had been manufactured out of whole cloth purely to boost the State television’s ratings.
 
      The watchdog groups states that the fact that the release article cites only “vague” or anonymous sources for much of its statements: The risks are purported by a “local dermatologist” who only gives a common surname and a “government official” states that recycling condoms is illegal (the legality of recycling condoms would seem a fairly simple matter to check). When this is combined with other “common sense” aspects, such as there being no mention of a brand name or company name when obviously there would be a physical plant where the production was being carried out, and the logistical infeasibility of “collecting used condoms”, this story starts to seem more and more like a ratings gimmick, and an outright hoax.
 
      However it has yet to be officially debunked, and is worth watching for. If in fact, the truth is that there is recycling of condoms into hair bands taking place, the cost would apparently seem to make them worthwhile, since the article states the recycled hair bands are selling for the equivalent of three cents (U.S. currency) for a package of ten, which is a fraction of the cost of other brands.
