Our very own ‘Get the look’ contributors at TV Soap, Wayne Lewis and Alan Buki from Original and Mineral, invited us to help celebrate the launch of ‘Mineral CCT Permanent Hair Colour,’ a culmination of ongoing research and dedication to product improvement.

Early this week, Original Mineral (O&M) invited beauty editors to a healthy Australian breakfast at Sydney’s high-rise restaurant, The Summit, to launch their new hair colour line.

The morning commenced with Co-Founder, Jose Bryce Smith and Technical Director, Wayne Lewis discussing the journey of the brand and outlining Mineral CCT’s promise for a safe, chemical-free future that wont compromise colour results.

By channelling the cutting-edge colour technology from an American research laboratory, O&M’s launch of Mineral CCT’s latest generation of permanent colours answers a demand from clients who are looking for a more natural solution with a professional result.

CCT stands for Clean Colour Technology, a new cutting-edge colour line that features 99 permanent shades, and 28 demi-permanent high-gloss shades, formulated without harsh chemicals – ammonia, resorcinol, and PPD.

The removal of these chemicals opens the colour service up to a wider scope of clients – not only the many allergic to PPD, but to those who push the parameters of ‘personalised colour’ one step further. The micro-colour pigment molecules and specialised minerals in the formula allow for the brightest fashion colours and healthiest results.

Jess, Sarah and Kelly model shades of O&M's new Mineral CCT hair colour line.

Appealing to all clientele is an active mineral complex including Illite, Kaolin and Montorillonite that work respectively to deeply penetrate for rich saturation, guard against colour fade and deliver a boost in hair and scalp health.

O&M’s new hair colour line not only achieves up to five levels of lightening, with such shads as O&M Pearl and O&M Keratin, but it also offers 100 per cent grey coverage for those who are reluctant to embrace the signs of ageing.

O&M’s Mineral CCT permanent colour range is now available at leading Australian and USA professional hair salons.

Revenge is a dish best served cold!

April 19th, 2012 by TV Soap | No Comments | Filed in Days of Our Lives, The Magazine

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: The Secret is out - Taylor (Tamara Braun) and EJ (James Scott) are busted by Nicole (Arianne Zucker)

There’s never a dull moment on Days of our Lives, and things are about to get deliciously wicked when Nicole busts EJ cheating on her with Taylor.

Against all odds, Nicole and EJ decide to celebrate their love for one another by getting married. But before the exchange of vows, EJ falls in love with another woman – Nicole’s sister, Taylor.

Taylor feels exactly the same way about EJ, but unable to cope with the guilt of coming between her sister and EJ, she decides to move out of the DiMera mansion and leave town. But EJ has other ideas – realising he cant bear to be apart from Taylor any longer, he resolves to divorce Nicole.

When EJ informs Taylor of his plan to end his relationship with Nicole, Taylor refuses to let him go through with it – saying that it would crush Nicole into a million pieces. Despite Taylor’s concern, EJ insists that even if Taylor leaves town, he and Nicole do not have a future together. But before he has the chance to tell Nicole the wedding is off, Nicole secretly busts EJ and and her sister embracing in a passionate kiss.

Initially, it seems that a shocked Nicole is planning violence, but she eventually decides that revenge is a dish best served cold, and rather than getting mad, Nicole decides to get even.

After over-hearing a conversation between Gus and Vivian about a mysterious prisoner EJ and Stefano had locked in their basement, she decides to take matters into her own hands. She manages to get a hold of the DNA results and putting two and two together, she begins to suspect that EJ and Stefano may have imprisoned Rafe in their basement. She calls on a mysterious associate to see if he can match the DNA results from EJ and Stefano’s prisoner to Rafe, and once the proof arrives, Nicole is ready to plot her revenge.

Exactly what Nicole has in store for EJ and Taylor remains a mystery, but you can rest assured it’s going to be a well-crafted and extremely wicked plan!
