Novuhair Summer Hair Care Tips

Saturday, April 29, 2017
Heading to the beach may be the most exciting part of summer. It is almost always part of the itinerary this season for most people. Others prefer to give in to their adrenaline rush climbing that mountain slope or just about anything that gets you that summer tan to fit in the crowd.








Did you know that spending extended hours under the extreme summer sun can pose serious danger to your hair and scalp? The same UV rays that brings damage to your skin without proper protection can equally hurt your hair and scalp.

Below are some of the problems your hair can encounter during the season:


  • Split-Ends - UV rays and extreme high temperature can take their toll on your strands. The heat drains the moisture of your hair out causing breakage.
  • Double Trouble – Rebonded or permed hair needs extra attention as high temperature well as humidity disrupts the cuticle breaking some of the chemical bonds that keep the hair straight or curls and roughing up the cuticle, taking away shine and smoothness.
  • Scalp problem – Scalp may also get sun-burned if you don’t use cover-ups for your head.
  • Grease problem – Summer sun and humidity can bring extra grease on your hair, leaving it vulnerable to damage.
  • Chlorine Stress – Swimming in the pool subjects your hair to chlorine. The outer layers of the cuticle of the hair opens up when you swim and chlorinated water seeps into the center of the hair thus making your hair more brittle.

  •  Excessive Salt Water – Salt water can cause the same damage as chlorinated ones. Salt water  dries on the hair it creates a high-saline solution which can build up and cause hair to feel dry, weighed down and hard to manage.





All these problem can be addressed by keeping your hair clean and showered after each activities. Take vitamin supplements that benefits you hair such as Vitamin C and Biotin. Getting your hair pampered will also give respite to the sun and chemical abuse.

Novuhair, nature’s answer to hair loss is composed of 19 Natural ingredients with some of the known medicinal plants such as Ginger, Pennywort and Ginseng blended with natural essences of rosemary and peppermint.

Novuhair nourishes the scalp and hair by increasing the flow of nutrients and improving blood circulation to the scalp which is very important after subjecting your hair from all your summer  activities. Novuhair also helps hydrate the scalp, maintain the hair’s natural luster and prevent early hair graying, hair dryness and itching. #NovuhairSummer

KIDS FAIR 2017: “Bright! Right From The Start”

Thursday, April 27, 2017



Kids Fair 2017: “Bright! Right From The Start” kicks off last April 21 - 23, 2017 (Friday to Sunday) from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM at Megatrade Hall 1, SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City.

The first ever KIDS FAIR 2017: “Bright! Right From The Start” is an event that sets an environment of learning, discovery, and fun for kids with various activities that could help them improve their creative and thinking skills. From the moment they set foot in the fair, the fun begins – filled with delightful servings of games that stimulate creativity, sportsmanship, and problem-solving skills.



Kids played and won prizes at our game booths; listened to book reading sessions or discovered new books to take home; tried an art craft session and bring out the artist within them; join several exciting workshops that enhances skills and imagination; and explored a bounty of booths from toys, books and sports – to fashion and candies. But wait – this chock-full of fun fair is not just for kids.

Moms, dads, grandparents, and guardians were definitely in the mix – it’s a family affair. KIDS FAIR actively involves the whole family by helping them learn to provide the proper learning path so kids get the necessary motivation and guidance, a solid foundation that propels them to a better future with careers that give them purpose and a lifestyle of holistic well-being.




Also, celebrities and influencers like “Baeby Baste” of GMA 7; Mommy Vlogger, Ms. Isha Borromeo and other special guests joined this fun-filled event.

A healthy mind needs a healthy body, so the Doctors were in at the KID’S FAIR too. Parents and their kids tried the “Left-brain, Right-brain Dominance Assessment” and find out if their child is either analytical or creative – or maybe even both – an expert in child psychology was there to guide them.


KID’S FAIR aims to promote proper childhood development that fosters joy and harmony at home and in school. We believe that happy, optimistic children are the product of happy, optimistic homes.

ARTISTE SPACE produced and organized KID’S FAIR 2017: “Bright! Right From The Start” to provide a cheerful event for kids and their families while forwarding knowledge on effective childcare and development. Earnestly working to deliver an exceptional KID’S FAIR that exceeds visitor expectations and become a must-attend event for the whole family every year.

Next, there’s Matteo Guidicelli.

On top of that, he also released his first self-titled album in 2016!
And then of course there’s Paulo Avelino. Considered in the industry as “The Prince of Teleseryes”, Paulo has starred in a number of outstanding indie movie releases, among them Sayaw ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa which earned for him the Best Actor nod from the prestigious Gawad Urian.
So what brings these 3 fit and sexy gentlemen together this scorching summer, you ask?

“Breakfast for me is very important,” Gerald shares. “And I wanted a dish that’s a healthier take on the typical Pinoy breakfast so I came up with this super delicious Tuna Silog. “
“I’m always on the go,” Matteo reveals. “I love having a lean sandwich because it’s easy to prepare. Just like my Tuna Egg Salad Sandwich on wheat bread which is healthy yet very satisfying!”
“Tuna Pancit Canton is the ultimate, yummy comfort food – something you can make in a jiffy!” Paulo declares.

In other words, as summer equals frolic and fun under the sun, it doesn’t mean you have to deprive yourself just to stay fit and sexy.

Both young, beautiful and blessed with voices that have awed audiences from around the globe, Morrisette and Tanya have accomplished so much in their young careers than most artists today.





Morisette first made waves after winning TV5's Star Factor in 2012. With her vocal range that covers Wicked's Defying Gravity' to Disney's "Let It Go" to Heart's "What About Love", Morissette rises up to her title as one truly exceptional star.

This time around, Morissette expands her repertoire as she shares the stage with another headliner, Tanya Manalang.





Tanya's role of Kim in Cameron McKintosh's 2014 rvival of Miss Saigon at the West End polished her craft as an actress and marked her as one of the royalties of Philippines theater.

To broaden her acting prowess, Tanya was given a scholarship by Sir Cameron Mackintosh at the Arts Educational School in London while she was into the grueling auditions for the musical.



Starting at an early age,  Tanya has performed in such musical productions as Godspell, Whistle Down The Wind Footloose, In the Heights, KAOS, The Sound of Music, and The King And I prior to landing an alternate role as Kim in Miss Saigon.

Last year, Tanya landed the lead female roles in acclaimed local musicals Rak of Aegies and Tick, Tick...Boom!, and shared the stage with rocker/thespian Mig Ayesa in RWM's twinbill offering Curtains Up!, which awed audiences with repertoire of hit songs from Broadway and West End musicals.

Joining the two ladies as special guest is OPM president, singer, songwriter and actor Mr. Ogie Alcasid who has 12 gold, three platinum, and another three double-platinum records to his name.

Platinum: World's Favorite Hit Songs Live! promises a nigh of chart toppers from Tagalog ballads to London hits and Hollywood theme songs courtesy of Morissette, Tanya and Ogie together with the rythym ensemble of the Manila Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Rodel Colmenar and over-all direction by Freddie Santos.

Get your coffee fix and pampering in one roof with E&W and Stairway Café and Salon

Friday, April 14, 2017



Waiting for  a woman getting her hair, nails, and body treatment done in a salon takes forever :).  It's a good thing there's a place in Kawit, Cavite where you can enjoy great food and brewed coffee while you wait!


















E&W salon is the first of the two branches put up by Emilie Ronquillo, an engineer by profession. Within the salon is House of OOTD which is a fashion boutique.













I tried it myself; Arabica beans from Mount Apo brewed and poured straight to my cup. The first thing my taste buds had encountered though was the seafood pasta that pretty got my attention. At Stairway Café and Salon, my breakfast was beyond ordinary. Suman with latik was such a sweet treat. The owner is nostalgic about Suman since it was her hardworking mother's bread and butter.






The food was a plus.  Not only the kids will be mesmerized by the place but practically people of all ages. Dine in Japanese-style if you prefer. Board games are available to pass the time away or simply plug in your lappy and connect to free Wi-Fi.This is solid proof that premium food and excellent service isn't always expensive.



Trying out their salon services was part of my day's list. They offer hair, body, and facial treatments but since I can only stay in Kawit, Cavite for a day, I got a Radio frequency facial treatment packaged with basic facial and the results were immediately noticeable. I skipped the haircut because I did not need one, however, I joined my friends for a pedicure and footspa haha! Talk about first time! Now I understand the buzz about foot spa.  Oh man! my soles were smooth as silk and I'm definitely having it regularly. The good treatment from the staff made the salon experience perfect.


As part of giving back and as an advocacy, they feed and teach some less fortunate kids at Kawit, Cavite, Furthermore, they engage with the community by coming up with events and promos such as the following:


EASTER EGG-HUNTING AT STAIRWAY CAFÉ AND SALON
Easter is an event to celebrate the resurrection of Christ after His crucifixion. As being usually done we celebrate it by finding the eggs hidden. To make this more fun and exciting, Stairway Cafe will hide a number of eggs which has special prices, in kind or cash. Aside from that there will also be other games.

This will be on the 16th of April in between 1 pm to 3 pm.
To join you have to purchase any food item minimum of 100 pesos, for each 100 pesos you can find one egg per 100, if you have 1000 then you can find ten eggs and you can avail all the prices on it. No age limit for this. then there will be sharing also about our faith to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
