Business spotlight: Micoré hair weave for transitioing and protective styles

For those who wear weaves as protective styles or as they transition Micoré International is a wonderful company that specializes in 100% pure human hair from straight to wavy.

Barbara "Babs"Asante, Consultant/National Expansion Leader, took time off of her busy schedule to share her personal hair story, business advice and inspiration why she joined Micore.

Hair story ...

Since I was little girl, I've had long, thick, curly hair that my mom felt was unmanageable because after washing, she just couldn't get a comb through my hair. So, to my grandfather's dismay and when I started school my mother began using the 'hot comb' on my hair. My grandfather felt the hot comb was destroying 'good hair.' Interestingly, he was not happy about the hot comb, but my mom was going for manageability. Subsequently, the 'hot comb' wasn't adequate to control the humid days and summer swimming camps. So, I decided to try a relaxer. It was the 'stylish thing to do.

I would say that I started wearing my hair natural after my second attempt at a relaxer. I really should have been more conscious of the first failed attempt at a relaxer, but was informed that the second relaxer attempt would be a charm -- that your hair would get used to the product. Well, when I saw most of my hair being rinsed away down the sink during the second attempt, I knew there was a problem. That was many years ago, and I've been natural ever since. Occasionally 'hot/warm combing' my hair for versatility on various occasions.

On wearing weaves as protective/transitioning style ...

Even though I am natural, I just love the variety of styles when wearing a weave. I love the protection the weave provides when you want to protect your hair from the environment, elements and electric styling tools. And when you use invisible parts, all of your natural hair can be braided underneath the weave without leaving any hair out, and the parts give a more natural look as well.

For transitioners, wearing a weave can also protect your hair from heat styling as well as help you avoid putting stress on the demarcation point between your new growth and relaxed ends which is very fragile.

Advice to those contemplating wearing their hair natural ...

My advice to those contemplating going natural is that to go for it. Again, during the transitioning phases, you can always wear a weave, wig, braids, etc. as your hair grows out.

As you transition, you also have the opportunity to get to know your natural hair - you can do trial and error - experimenting with natural products until you find what's right for your hair; and experiment with various transition styles. It's really a win-win situation when you wear your hair natural. Natural hair is freedom, just absolutely beautiful in its natural state, and you'll love your natural hair, and your hair will love you too!.. lol

What is Micoré International MLM ...

Micoré (Mi-core-ray), which means Zebra in Kenya is a company that markets hair extensions to women of all nationalities; thus, the name Micoré. Micoré International MLM offers a new option to women who wear hair extensions. now you can "Get Paid to Wear Your Weave".

We devised a new way to sell hair as a hair company, through Multi-Level Marketing, so we could not only sell hair but also provide a financial solution to our customers.

As an Independent Micoré Representative, you can now purchase the hair extensions you are already wearing, but at wholesale; while simultaneously building a Team of Micoré Reps, a team which can easily provide a nice residual income for years to come.

Micoré sells high quality 100% Pure Virgin Indian Remy hair, known as our Caviar Collection™ as well as high quality lower priced line of hair known as IndiSylk™. We guarantee customer satisfaction and top quality on both of these hair products. We have warranties for 6 months to one year against Matting, Tangling & Shedding.

What truly makes us different is Micoré provides the opportunity for anyone to own a hair business without any headaches. To be frank, Micoré just makes perfect sense! Besides.... Why Buy Hair When You Can Buy a Hair Business!

Inspiration behind Joining Micoré ...

What inspired me to get into business is that I've always been an entrepreneur... I love the concept of Multi-Level marketing: the attainable freedom (freedom from a job you don't enjoy; freedom of time); helping others attain their dreams, bringing value to customers; the income potential; residual income.

I believe it was John D. Rockefeller who said, "I would rather earn 1% off 100 people's efforts than 100% of my own efforts." I decided to make Micoré my home because of the Business side of beauty.

Every woman wants to look their best, glamorous! Women love social settings, and they treasure their hair! Micoré allows you to earn commissions 9 different ways. Micoré offers your own personalized replicated website and built-in marketing system to manage and promote your business for Retail sales and Recruiting.

A consultant also has access to online training through Micoré University with resources at your fingertips 24/7. And, more importantly, your own personal mentor who will support your business growth according to your level of commitment; as a hobby, part-time, or full-time.

Additionally, the hair business is a fractionalized market with no single major giant competitor except Asians, who dominate the industry with control of more than 80% of the distribution of African American hair care products, beauty supply stores and the wig and extension manufacturers.

Less than 1% of African Americans are in this over $9 billion industry; yet African Americans are the major purchasers and none of that revenue comes back into our communities. We need to put the hair business and the revenue it generates, back into the hands of the women who purchase. Even men are finding great success in Micoré.

People who are interested in joining Micoré and my awesome growing team can visit my website: Micoré International.

They can also contact me at my e-mail address: virginhairpays@gmail.com.

What the future holds ...

Micoré International is currently in soft launch. These next few weeks and months will allow us to test different systems and products, ramp up our inventory, and provide additional tools every week as we prepare to conquer the world.

The mission of Micoré International Inc is to empower women and men in the hair industry and to become the largest single seller of hair extensions and lace wigs, in the USA.

Eventually, we will sell hair care products and market our products internationally. Soon thousands of Independent Micoré Consultants will be sharing the Micoré story and selling to women who appreciate quality hair, and money in their pocket.

It's an awesome opportunity to earn great part-time or full-time income today, tomorrow and for years to come!

Go Ahead Drink More Coffee

20 New Ways to Get Energy for Life! By Reader's Digest Editors from Reader's Digest Magazine | February 2012/>
We asked top health pros to sift through the year's most promising research news for the one change Americans should make to their health routine. The results: Dozens of smart new ways to lose weight, sleep better, be happy, and stay healthy for life.

1. Go ahead—drink more coffee. When was the last time you heard a doctor use the word miracle? Well, wake up and smell the coffee: “It’s amazing,” says liver specialist Sanjiv Chopra, MD, professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. “Coffee is truly a lifesaving miracle drug.”

Though he says it’s still a “scientific mystery” how a simple cup of coffee works its wonders in the body, large epidemiological studies repeatedly verify its astonishing benefits. Some recent research highlights:

• More than three cups a day lowers women’s risk of developing the most common skin cancer by 20 percent.

• More than six cups a day cuts men’s risk of dying from prostate cancer by 60 percent.

• Drinking at least one cup of coffee a day lowers women’s risk of stroke by up to 25 percent.

• Consuming at least two cups daily reduces women’s chances of becoming depressed by up to 20 percent.

“Drink it black, or at most put a little skim milk in it” to minimize calories, Dr. Chopra recommends. The benefits from decaf may not be as prodigious, so stick with regular if you can tolerate the buzz.

Dr. Chopra drinks at least four cups a day himself, though most people should limit themselves to two. And no, he jokes, “I’m not sponsored by Starbucks.”

So Go Ahead.. have your coffee, BUT why not make it Healthier?? Organo Gold Healthy Gourmet Coffee is not only aromatic, but tastes GREAT! It provides the NATURAL energy even Lupies can use; and the health benefits are even greater than regular coffee. It works for me especially on the days I can use an extra SPOON (Energy)! Don't believe it??? E-mail for a FREE Sample on Me (Black, Mocha, or Latte). You'll feel the difference in just your First CUP!! There is FREEDOM in a Cup!

New studies reveal caffeinated coffee protects against Alzheimer's, diabetes, depression and prostate cancer

(NaturalNews) Recent research suggests that drinking caffeinated coffee daily may protect against developing Alzheimer's disease, diabetes, prostate cancer, depression and more, according to reports from Science Daily. Animal studies at the University of Florida discovered an ingredient in coffee that interacts with caffeine and increases blood levels of granulocyte colony stimulating factor (GCSF), a growth factor that that prevents the production of beta amyloid plaques, which are thought to be the causative factor in Alzheimer's disease. Researchers reported that daily consumption of caffeniated coffee by middle-aged and elderly individuals markedly lessens the risk of developing the disease.

Alzheimer's and Coffee

Treatment with caffeinated coffee increases memory capacity in Alzheimer's mice. The animals were treated with drip coffee and at the time of this article, scientists are unsure of the effects of instant coffee on the brain. Similar positive results were not evident in those mice treated with decaffeainated coffee or caffeine in other forms. Although testing was completed on mice, researchers have soon-to-be-released clinical evidence indicating coffee's ability to protect humans against the ravages of Alzheimer's disease.

It appears that four to five cups of caffeinated coffee daily are necessary to produce the increase in GCSF and protect against Alzheimer's. This amount may seem high for the average American coffee drinker, who consumes approximately 1.5 to 2 cups daily. Researchers suggest that using coffee to protect against Alzheimer's should start in early middle-age, between 30-50 years old; however, older people are also likely to benefit from consuming caffeinated coffee daily.

Additional Benefits from Coffee

Coffee is rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents, which provide the body with additional ingredients to increase cognitive function to protect the brain; as well as protect against other diseases of aging, such as Type II diabetes, depression, stroke, and Parkinson's. Studies also suggest coffee may help fight against breast, skin and prostate cancer.

Reports in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry discusses the effects of caffeine in coffee regarding the prevention of Type II diabetes. Animal studies were performed on mice, which showed that caffeinated coffee helped control blood sugar levels and insulin sensitivity, lowering the risk of developing the disease. Coffee also triggered other beneficial changes in their bodies, further reducing the risk of diabetes. Researchers believe that it is the caffeine in coffee that acts as an anti-diabetic compound.

Drinking two to three cups of caffeinated coffee daily may also lower the risk of depression in women by 15%, according to research published in the Archives of Internal Medicine -- and those who consume four or more cups daily have shown an even greater reduction in their risk of developing depression. Caffeine affects brain chemicals and is known to release mood-altering transmitters.

Additional studies at the Harvard School of Public Health indicated that men who drink six cups of coffee daily have a 20 to 60 percent decreased risk of developing several forms of prostate cancer. The study was published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, and indicated that even small quantities of coffee consumption can lower the risk of prostate cancer.

Many people are sensitive to the effects of caffeine, becoming nervous, jittery or unable to sleep. As with all good things, moderation is advised. Before introducing caffeinated coffee to your diet or greatly increasing existing quantities, consult a health care practitioner for the sake of your own health safety.

Since Today is WORLD LUPUS Day... I will be featuring some interesting facts & notes about Lupus and what I and my Lupus (lupien) friends encounter on a continuous basis... Be AWARE !

"I receive that in Jesus Name." But sometimes what the person REALLY means is that
I don't believe that you are sick!

Lupus is an unbelievable disease. It usually causes turmoil within the body, sometimes affecting the systemic system (Lungs -- my lungs collapsed 3 times; and now there is one); the heart (been there); liver, kidney, etc. But, sometimes Lupus influences the outside of the body, i.e., the butterfly rash, the wolf rash, inflammation (moon face, etc), ulcers, cold sores, etc. It took some time for family, friends, acquaintances, and my job to believe that I was challenged with a disease. For example with regard to my career, I was feeling awesome one minute, and the next few minutes I either had to be hospitalized or home bound. My job just could not accept that it was sickness... despite the hospitalizations. The rationalizations behind the illnesses whereby I was 'looking good but feeling sick' was incomprehensible the workforce despite the many years of dedication and great attendance record. After documentation and outward symptoms, finally belief; and, eventually relief. Now, I am so grateful and thankful now that I have my OWN home-based business!!!

With regard to friends, Lupus affected commitments, of course! To accept an engagement and then later having to cancel.. was just unacceptable and unbelievable to most of my friends. And to see, 'well I have to let you know,' just did not fare well with friends. Thus, Lupus can also be a 'lonely' disease. More to come!!!

Be Well; Live Happy!!

Information about Lupus...

What Is Lupus?...
Systemic lupus erythematosus is a chronic autoimmune disease that can affect the joints and almost every major organ in the body, including the heart, kidneys, skin, lungs, and brain. A person’s risk of developing lupus appears to be determined by genetic (hereditary) factors. However, the onset of the disease may be triggered by environmental factors such as infection, sunlight, or stress. In autoimmune disorders such as lupus, the immune system, which is designed to protect against infection, mistakenly attacks the body’s own tissues and organs. The major hallmark of this autoimmune attack is inflammation. The course of lupus varies and is characterized by alternating periods of flares (increased disease activity) and remissions. Some people with lupus experience only mild lupus symptoms and have few complications. Others experience frequent flares that lead to moderate or even severe complications...

Who Gets Lupus?
The number of people with lupus in the United States has been estimated to be as many as 1.5 million. Anyone can develop lupus, including children, but certain people are more likely to develop the disease. The ALR-funded International SLE Genetics (SLEGEN) Consortium research project has indentified links between specific genes and women with lupus. Nine out of ten people who have lupus are women, and the disease usually strikes during the childbearing years. Lupus is three times more common in African-American women than in Caucasian women and is also more prevalent in women of Latino, Asian, and Native American descent.

What Are the Symptoms of Lupus and How Is it Diagnosed? Unfortunately, the warning signs of lupus can mimic the warning signs of other diseases. Common symptoms of lupus include persistent low-grade fever, extreme fatigue, and painful or swollen joints. The so-called lupus rash, which often manifests as a butterfly-shaped reddish or purplish rash across the bridge of the nose and cheeks, is another common medical sign. However, no single test can be used to diagnose lupus, and it may take several months or years after symptoms first appear for doctors to make a definitive diagnosis. There are blood tests that a doctor can use to help diagnose lupus, but none of these tests are definitive.

Making Your Coffee A Healthy Choice!

Who do you know who drinks coffee, tea, or hot chocolate at least occasionally? If I told you that you could make money just drinking and sharing coffee, would you believe me? Organogold has made it possible for the average person to WIN… It's the SYSTEM put in place by our Amazing Leaders that if followed can truly set you FREE!!! SYSTEM = Save Yourself Some Time Energy & Money…

Freedom in a Cup:

Organo Gold's mission is to improve the health, wealth, and balance in people's lives by sharing the knowledge of a healthy alternative to regular coffee. Organo Gold Coffee features the only 100% certified organic ganoderma lucidum! The number one herb in the Chinese culture for health benefits. A super powerhouse!

The Miracle of Ganoderma - Once it was so rare, so hard to find, and therefore so expensive, that only kings and emperors could afford it. The places where it could be found were closely guarded secrets, and stumbling across one was the ancient equivalent of winning the lottery. Known as red reishi in Japan and lingzhi in China. Ganoderma is grown in the highest most pristine Chinese mountains of Wuyi where virgin rain forest literally surrounds the areas, which provides a pollution-free environment, which is ideal for that cultivation. So, with knowledge of the benefits of this Magical mushroom, it began to spread throughout the world and eventually it became the key health ingredient in Organo Gold's coffee, teas, hot chocolate, and other products. Today, virtually anyone can enjoy its benefits as they sip their Organo Gold coffee or tea. The benefits of Ganoderma Lucidum also known as the 'King of Herbs' are available as fast as you can boil water. That's exciting.

When you consume Ganoderma, it's like a smorgasbord for the body. It has more than 200 nutrients and active elements, and the body's higher intelligence -- innate intelligence -- knows exactly what to do with it when it is consumed. You don't have to worry about it; just get it in you. Everybody's body has different imbalances, i.e., hormone or immune system. Ganoderma has the ability to regulate hundreds of imbalances to help the body normalize. That's pretty cool; and because coffee or tea delivers the Ganoderma so fast, the body can quickly do many things with it.

The concept of using coffee to market Ganoderma is a master stroke of genius. Not only is coffee popular, it's universal. What that means is that we have a virtually unlimited worldwide market; and, the perfect vehicle for "Bringing the treasures of the earth to the people of the world."

That's the genius of coffee!!

To your good health,
