Dangers of Hair Color Ingredients

Many people that color their hair don't often consider the dangerous risk they are taking each time they cover their grays or refresh their reds. In fact, most hair dyes products contain toxic, carcinogenic, and corrosive ingredients that not only irritate the scalp, but also severely damage the hair and can cause serious health issues such as cancer, chronic allergies, reproductive systems disorders, and immune deficiencies. If you're someone who colors their hair on a regular basis, it's important that you understand the dangers that you are facing and that there are other alternatives that you may not be aware of.

What are the three most Dangerous Ingredients in Hair Color?
Resorcinol: This is often found in hair coloring products and bleaching agents and is a extremely toxic skin irritant that is extraordinarily dangerous to the immune system as it disrupts the thyroid hormonal synthesis and produces severe hormone imbalances. After prolonged exposure to resorcinol, this imbalance can become irreversible. While the Federal Government regulates resorcinol exposure in the workplace, it ignores the resorcinol exposure that salon professionals are exposed to on a daily basis and there are no regulations limiting the amounts of resorcinol in cosmetics or hair care products.
Toluene-2,5-diamine sulfate (PTD): PTD is a substituted aromatic amine salt that is a potent carcinogen which is known to cause severe and irreversible damage to the human immune system and is closely linked to bladder cancer.
Ammonia: This corrosive alkaline ingredient is used specifically to rough and corrode the cuticle and left it open to allow hair dye to penetrate into the hair shaft. While it serves as an excellent corrosive agent, it also damages the sebaceous glands, which provides sebum, the hair's natural moisturizer. Worse yet, it damages the hair tyrosine protein. Tyrosine regulates the hair's melanin, which provides hair its ability to "hold" hair color. Finally, ammonia has the effect of damaging hair follicles to the point where they go dormant and many dermatologists now agree that ammonia in hair dye is a key cause of hair thinning and loss.
Paraphenylenediamine (PPD): PPD is widely used as a permanent hair pigment. The use of PPD as a hair pigment is popular because it is a permanent dye that gives a natural look. Hair can also be shampooed without fading. PPD can be a dangerous allergen and for that reason poses dangers as an ingredient in hair color. Individuals and salon professionals should conduct a simple skin patch test to test for allergies to PPD before using any permanent hair dye.
Alternative Options to Harmful Hair Color
Many people who seek safer, more natural alternatives to hair dye turn to henna because it is mostly naturally derived from plant pigments. Most people don't realize that henna, especially black henna, is loaded with PPD's. While this natural approach to hair dye may help avoid some of the toxic colors found in other hair dyes, the effect is not the same. Henna is more of a color coating that rests above the hair dye and only provides a semi-permanent affect.
Another, more popular approach, is turning to organic hair color. Modern Organic hair color does not contain any ammonia and instead depends on natural organic extracts to lift the cuticle and allow a permanent color to the hair. These products usually rely heavily on organic ingredients while supplementing their effectiveness with some mineral pigments and a minimal amount of synthetics. Unfortunately, the best organic hair colors such as Organic Color Systems are only sold to salon professionals.

Hair Extensions - Getting It Right for Healthy Looking Hair

Thanks to the world's obsession with celebrity culture, hair extensions are getting (largely) great publicity. Almost every event in which celebrities are present, there are bound to be photographers and reporters looking for the latest gossip and to discover fashion and hairstyle secrets that will be broadcast and distributed and dissected by an eager world public within hours of the event taking place!

It's probably easier to work out which celebs haven't used hair extensions of some kind, rather than trying to highlight all those that have, but the fact that they are so popular, really proves what a versatile fashion and hair accessory they have become.

These extensions can help alter a "look" dramatically and with more and more clip in extensions being used, a girl can change her look almost as often as she desires.

Is there a big movie premiere one week and a glamorous party a week later? A celeb may want to look completely different for both events and of course this can be achieved in several ways. Different dresses and outfits will certainly go some way to looking different, but nothing can be quite as dramatic as a complete change of hair style. Unless you already have masses of your own hair, then your options without hair extensions are somewhat limited.

However, once you have brought hair accessories into the equation, then really, your imagination (or the imagination of your stylist) is the only limit!

Once you delve into the world of extensions, you will find that there is so much variety and so much choice, but at the most basic level, there are effectively two main categories. In the past, artificially made or synthetic hair was the most popular, but with advances in technology, many of the current extension sets are made from real human hair, providing a much more natural look than some of the synthetic variations!

As with any fashion accessory though, it is important to seek advice from the professionals. Hair extensions can be mismanaged and go wrong and you are likely to have seen many examples of this on the internet and in women's magazines.

Seek out a reputable company with good reviews and don't be afraid to ask for their advice and help and always follow their instructions carefully. Good salons, stylists and distributors will have the customers' interests as their number 1 priority.

So, it's time to enjoy the endless possibilities that good hair extensions can provide. Be bold and dare to be glamorous!

How to Deep Condition African American Hair Properly

Ready for the secret to obtaining long, beautiful, healthy hair? The secret to obtaining this goal has VERY LITTLE to do with the leave-in products, heat protectants, or serums. It's all in the deep conditioning. Yes ladies, deep conditioning will be the biggest factor in turning your hair around to achieve the dream hair you have always wanted.

Think of your hair as a "somewhat" blank canvass (slightly worn, dry, and cracked). You can put as much paint (in our case products) on top of the canvass that you want, but without fixing the foundation, you will still see the cracks and splits from underneath the paint. What I'm trying to say is, ladies, don't expect your hair to look the you want it to without first deep conditioning your hair to get it into a healthy state. If I styled my hair without deep conditioning or without deep conditioning in the proper way (will address this later), then my hair would be one huge frizz ball that was also damaged, unhealthy, extensively dry and brittle with tons of breakage.

How do you know if you are properly conditioning? Does your hair feel like butter (literally) after a deep conditioning session and after your deep conditioner is rinsed out? Is your hair so moisturized after deep conditioning that you don't need to add moisturizer for a few days? If so, congratulations. You've done it. You have found the proper products for your hair type and are utilizing the correct techniques (duration, environment) to apply the deep conditioner to your hair. If not, please read on.

Don't worry If your hair currently does not feel silky smooth after deep conditioning, keep reading and in no type at all, you hair will begin to turn around. All hair is unique. Just because it is common (or the directions instruct you) to deep condition for 15 -30 minutes, doesn't mean that is what your hair needs. You should deep condition until your hair tells gives you signs that it has absorbed enough moisture. Think of your hair's moisture needs in terms of hunger. There are times our bodies our hungrier than other times, depending on if we just exercised, had a meal full of fiber, or maybe we skipped a meal or two. The fact of the matter is that our hunger and how much our body needs to eat varies. The same applies with how much moisture is needed for our hair.

Did you use the blow dryer a lot this week? Was the weather insanely frizzy so you had to use the flat iron a little more than you wanted? Does your hair feel excessively brittle? Well each aforementioned scenario should be addressed differently when the time comes to deep condition.

PRODUCTS: The most crucial step in the deep conditioning process is choosing the right product for you hair type. Make sure you read the label. If the direction say to leave on for 2-5 minutes and rinse%u2026. THIS IS NOT A DEEP CONDITIONER, it is a rinse out conditioner that coats the hair shaft, not penetrate it). If the product is a true deep conditioner, the directions will state to leave on for 15 -20 minutes. The product, especially for women of color, should be extra moisturizing. I prefer natural-based products because the ingredients that penetrate the hair shaft will keep your hair healthier for a longer period of time. Natural ingredients are always better.

HEAT/NO HEAT: There are really two methods to deep condition properly.

#1) Using direct heat (with a hooded dryer/or heat cap) with either dry/wet hair, apply a plastic cap, and underneath the dryer until your hair feels moisturized OR

#2) The Non-Heat (even though you really are using heat, but it's like cheating) In order to do this, you need to apply your deep conditioner to dry hair, apply a plastic cap, apply a turbie twist (or hair wrap to secure in place) and go to bed. The next morning shampoo out. While you were sleeping, the heat from your scalp and body produced natural heat underneath the plastic cap. It's a great way to save time and not spending your precious moments of free time underneath a noisy dryer.

DURATION: I remember when I would shampoo, deep condition (for like 15 - 20 minutes) and take my hair out of the plastic, it would feel like I just put a rinse out conditioner in my hair, it felt decent, but not silky smooth and moisturized, not buttery... but I still thought that since I "deep conditioned" for the recommended time, that my hair should be moisturized. Not True. After my hair dried, it came out as a dry, frizzy mess and I would wonder why. When you take your hair out of the plastic cap/saran wrap etc, your hair should feel silky smooth even before you rinse anything out. If it does not, it still has some more "marinating" to do. As I've stressed over and over again, deep conditioning on dry hair -overnight- is my method of choice, what my hair loves, and I can finally guarantee that I will have a good hair day.

Good Curling Irons for Thick Hair

FREE $20 OfficeMax Gift Card when you purchase 2 of the same toner cartridges, including HP.

Thick hair can be troublesome when it comes to straightening or styling, and although many hair tools nowadays are especially designed to handle this tough hair type, if you don't know what to look for then you might just end up with a mediocre appliance.

Curling thick hair may not be as easy as curling fine hair, but with the right curling iron you'll have no problem in creating those salon-looking styles. So how can you find the right curling iron?

First thing's first, the type of curling iron you choose influences how easy curling your hair will be. While many stand firmly by the traditional spring curling iron, others prefer a clipless curling iron for versatile and creative styling. Some tough haired girls claim that a steam hair curler is best if your hair is hard to style since the hot airflow coming from small holes in the barrel soften your hair to make it manageable.

When choosing a hair curler, make sure that it's made with a good material that will protect your hair. Barrels made out of teflon and other metals aren't the greatest idea if you want smooth and healthy curls, so go for a ceramic or tourmaline barrel for moisturizing heat and a long lasting result.

Next, check the shape of the barrel. This can be cylindrical, conical or reverse conical. The first of these is the most conventional and with them you'll get the basic curl. For thick hair, a cylindrical barrel may not produce the same results so the best choice would be a conical curling iron for a tapered curl that will last longer.

As for the size, this depends on the type of curl you want to achieve. Tiny hair curlers create a very tight curl, but often can't heat thick hair all the way through. Very large-barreled irons don't work well either as they produce far looser curls in thick hair than in medium or thin locks. A medium 1 inched barrel would be a great choice for most girls.

So if your hair is terribly thick and hard to style, you will love a tourmaline ceramic clipless curling iron for softer locks, healthier hair and easier styling. There are many professional brands on the market so just take your pick! Although most of them may surpass your original budget, the results and protection will be definitely worth the investment.

Using Natural Ingredients and Your Hair Still Feels Dry?

60% Off Fine Jewelry Item of the week - $7 button sleeve tee
There are thousands of products and ingredients that we refer to as moisturizers by habit, but because they don't hydrate the hair very well, they aren't really moisturizers. Although many of the products on the shelf are beginning to add hydrating ingredients, they still fail to moisturize the hair because of the many other drying ingredients. A good moisturizer should be water based, as this is the basis of all true moisture. They should also contain other hydrating ingredients such as natural butters and oils.

Mineral oil, paraffin gel, petroleum, propylene glycol, Triethanolamine (TEA) and other ingredients in our products are extremely drying to the hair and can combat any of the natural ingredients found in the product. Natural ingredients are always better when it comes to hydrating the hair because most of them contain water, depending on their derivative. They also keep the hair hydrated longer, are generally healthier for the scalp, preserving the integrity of the sebum, which serves to keep the hair healthy and hydrated. But, even some natural ingredients don't provide enough hydration, so you still have to choose them wisely.

Butters and oils are excellent sources of nutrients, but when used alone, they aren't the most hydrating. I have many people come to me complaining that no matter how much olive oil they put in their hair, it always feels dry. This is because many oils just sit on the hair and don't penetrate the shaft. Oils are great when heat is applied and when they are in other products such as a conditioner and moisturizer, but alone, they may not provide enough moisture. This is the same with butters; cocoa butter and even Shea butter have excellent healing properties for the skin, leaving it feeling soft and when applied to the hair, giving it some moisture, but for very dry hair, these butters alone may not get the job done. Some natural ingredients are better used for the skin or have properties that are great for the scalp, but that doesn't provide a lot of moisture. This is why it's important to find the right combination of ingredients in order to provide an adequate amount of moisture to the hair. Here I will list some good and bad ingredients for you to consider when purchasing a moisturizer.

Aloe Vera (neither a butter or oil), is native to Africa, has long been known for its medicinal properties The PH balance (slightly acidic) of Aloe Butter is nearly identical to that of skin, so it makes a good moisturizer. Upon chemical analysis it has been shown that Aloe contains minerals, vitamins, amino acids, enzymes and proteins which all contribute to its beneficial nature.

Good:Jojoba Oil is expeller pressed from the fruit (nut) of the jojoba plant that grows up to 10 feet high and is found in the deserts of the U.S. and Mexico. A naturally occurring ester, Jojoba oil is really a liquid wax. The oil is similar to our own sebum which is secreted by our sebaceous glands and helps to lubricate and protect your skin and hair. Jojoba Oil contains protein and minerals, as well as a waxy substance similar to collagen. Hypo-allergenic and pure, Jojoba Oil is perfect for any skin type, especially those with a large molecular structure.

Bad: Triethanolamine (TEA) - Often used in cosmetics to adjust ph. TEA cause allergic reactions, including eye problems, dry hair and skin leading to damage, and can be toxic if absorbed into the body over a long period of time.

Good: Avocado Butter, created through a unique hydrogenation process, is a butter that is creamy in texture and has excellent moisturizing properties. It is easily penetrated into the skin. Avocado Butter also contains some natural sunscreen properties along with Vitamins A, B, G and E making it an all-around great ingredient for a wide variety of products

Bad: Mineral oil/Paraffin - Derivative of petroleum, used industrially as a cutting fluid and lubricating oil. It forms an oily layer on the skin and traps moisture under the skin thus preventing the skin from breathing. At the same time, it stops toxins and wastes from escaping. This may cause severe drying, damage to hair follicles, slow growth, stunted growth and hair loss.

Good: Olive Butter Cold pressed from selected fruits, this butter has excellent emollient and antioxidant properties making it a natural moisturizer. For those people who have found they have sensitivity to Shea butter, olive butter is a good substitute as this butter exhibits many of the same characteristics. Containing natural essential fatty acids and unsaponifiables, this butter is an essential ingredient for anti-aging products.

Bad: Petrolatum and Paraffin Gel (petroleum jelly) - Mineral oil in a gel form; causes many problems for photosensitive skin (that is to say it augments damage from the sun). It also tends to interfere with the body's natural moisturizing mechanism leading to dry skin. Any product sold that contains this chemical creates the very conditions that it claims to relieve. Many manufacturers use petrolatum because it is incredibly cheap.

Keeping the hair well hydrated aids in flexibility; flexible hair doesn't break as easily, unbroken strands, equal longer hair; so make sure you are keeping the hair hydrated.

How Does Our Hair Use Protein

Limited Time: SAVE 50% on Wusthof Gourmet 18-Piece Block Set at CHEFS - Shop Now FREE $20 OfficeMax Gift Card when you purchase 2 of the same toner cartridges, including HP.
Our hair and nails are predominately made of protein, which gives them strength. Overtime we lose the needed protein to keep our hair and nails strong because our body doesn't store protein. The hair may experience breakage and excessive damage with the use of heating appliances, chemicals, and other harsh practices. In order to keep the hair strong, we must replenish the lost protein. This can be done internally, through eating a protein rich diet and externally by applying products that contain protein to the hair.

A protein rich diet isn't just great for your hair, but also for your body. Because our bodies' don't have a protein reservoir, it's important to eat protein rich foods regularly. Some really good sources of protein are almonds, avocados, bacon, baked beans, beef, broccoli, carrots, salmon, rice, soy bean, turkey and tuna. Eating these foods (and many other protein rich foods), can help to replenish the protein from the inside.

Replenishing protein externally will also aid in strengthening the hair. Hair care products may contain many different forms of protein, which may come from different sources and have different levels of potency. Most of them do the same thing; aid in strengthening the hair by filling in the weak or brittle areas of the strand; depending on the strength; the end results may differ greatly. Some proteins will soften the hair, some will aid in giving it a shiny coat, others may be really strong and may leave the hair dry; so you definitely want to read the labels and follow the instructions carefully.

Protein is most commonly replenished through a conditioning treatment; this is why many of them instruct you keep the conditioner on for a while or to use heat to further the effects; heat will open up the strands and allow the protein to be deposited. Many moisturizers also include protein in them, which you need to be careful of. Although protein is excellent to keep the hair strong, too much of this good thing can be extremely bad.

Protein overload is the term used when too much protein is applied to the hair, causing it to become dry and brittle. Many people purchase a shampoo, conditioner and daily moisturizer with protein in it in order to keep the hair strong, but this is too much and may lead to damage. Using a mild protein treatment once a week (or every other week at the minimum), is generally enough to keep the hair strong. Some people will use a potent treatment every 6-8 weeks to boost the protein levels, but these are generally extremely drying to the hair; the hair has to be handled very carefully in order for it not to break, and it should be followed up by a very hydrating hair moisturizer that doesn't contain mineral oil, paraffin, petrolatum, or protein.

Protein doesn't always say protein, so I've included this list of ingredients that are actually a form of protein, so double-check your moisturizers to make sure they do NOT have protein in them and check your conditioner to make sure they DO have protein in them.

In fact, great and healthy hair starts with a very good dryer. Just like an skilled make-up artists you should have the proper know how and basic knowledge about the very important and necessary equipment for beauty making! So here would be the amazing steps on choosing a hair dryer:

1. Consider your hair type

Generally, you can find three kinds of good hair dryers available in the market that are used for different hair types. One of the most usual hair dryer types is tourmaline. These items were specifically great for curled hair that require more control when the hair is longer. Whereas ionic types of hair dryers are more efficient for drying wet hair. If you are looking for the general purpose dryer then a ceramic dryer is the most well-liked. This dryer suits for almost any hair types, thus it is easy to use on any occasion.

2. What sort of dryer to buy

Occasionally you'll want to hasten up the drying procedure for your hair. A Ceramic type dryer is good for preserving your hair's health if you are in fast drying procedure. This is for the fact that self-managing heat produced by this hair dryer is created by infrared microwaves that softly warm every strand of one's hair from the inside out. Also it contains the protection strategy to prevent overheating and that is done by the delicate exterior coating. It returns the natural oils on our head to ensure maintenance of your hair's moisture and liveliness.

Like the ionic dryer, a dryer having ceramic elements has a natural negative ion technology that soothes and covers your hair cuticles. This will perfectly point out the sparkling and silky look of your hair which do not crimp throughout the entire day. An additional plus of the ceramic dryer is that it won't risk your hair's health when becoming over exposed to heat. This is because the ionic element cuts down and reduces the length of the drying time of your hair.

3. Pick out a trustworthy Manufacturer name

The tourmaline part of this dryer is in charge of producing negative ions to get the job done in the smallest time period. This will leave your hair soft, toned, and totally free of frizz.

Like what I have said a while ago, performance is the most important thing when looking for a beauty device. When you're looking for the best apparatus, you have to prefer the one with the trusted name. a good dryer will guarantee fast functionality, delicate drying, and remarkable results for any hair styles!

The professional wedding planners have already been tasked to take over the grunt job. For most men, the hard part should already be over, right? Wrong. Grooms may soon realize that finding that perfect wedding suits for men can be the trickiest task of all.

Here are some thoughts to ponder while trying to search for an impeccable made to measure suits that would do justice to one of the most momentous occasions in the life of a person.

In this line, knowing one's fashion preference is of topmost priority. It does not really matter whether the custom suits are single-button suits, double-breasted buttons, or a tuxedo and so on. There is no right or wrong preference here, whatever conforms to the groom's fashion style.

It is to each its own. In the end, the essential thing here is achieving that well-fitted polished look that defines one's personal style.

Of course, just because it is a noble and worthy endeavor, it does not preclude practical considerations. There are numerous wedding suits for men to be had, for sure.

However, finding the right balance between wants and needs against what fits the wedding budget can be a little bit tricky.

Cost is perhaps the number one consideration because custom suits, as opposed to off the peg suits, can be quite expensive by comparison. However, the groom must likewise bear in mind that he deserves to look extra dashing and impeccably styled on this special day.

Certainly, only made to measure suits, wherein the client's body figurations and specifications are appraised meticulously, can accomplish that kind of well-polished and put together ensemble.

Before the flawless ensemble can be had, however, one must hunt for that perfect collaborator - the tailor man.

This gentleman should be of high calibre and with years of professional experience. Preferably, either he should be able to name references of his work or he is connected with a reputable or prestigious tailoring house.

Another practical consideration in getting wedding suits for men is the time frame production. Men's formal wear include a tie, a jacket suit, pant, and a shirt as among other essential accessories such as the cuff links.

So planning ahead of time is important since custom suits typically require two to three fittings and could take up to several weeks before it can be delivered to the buyer

Formal Dresses: Your TOP Focus For Wearing Formal Dresses

It's sooner or later that girls should learn how to wear formal dresses correctly, and don't take it for granted that jeans and T-shirts are of better decency than skirts and stockings.
Compared with menswear, girls have many more styles and colors to choose from!Wearing elegant and appropriate dresses will not only make you look more beautiful, but also indicate your fine self-cultivation and taste as a modern woman. To help you we've listed the 'TOP' principles of wearing formal dresses to make you look decent.

'TOP' stands for:


In a word, we should be sure that the time, occasion and the place that we're wearing our clothing are all in harmony.


Girls should wear the right type of dresses at the right times.

For a man, a suit in dark colors and of good quality can provide general service no matter when it's worn; while for a woman, the dress should be changed as time goes by. During working hours we may need office suits to be professional; whereas in the evening for special events, we need to change into formal dresses with high-heels, shining jewelry and maybe a scarf.

Of course we should also keep pace with the season's trends as an extra consideration.


What we wear should fit with the occasion we're attending. When participating in a formal conference or negotiating with clients, we should be serious and professional; but when attending a concert, the ballet or an evening banquet, we should wear formal dresses that make ourselves look elegant and graceful. Think of it this way...if everybody else is well-dressed, while you rock up in casual clothes like you're hacking around in the supermarket, how awkward would you feel? Exactly! That's why being aware of the occasion and what's expected is important!


If we receive guests at home or visit someone's home, formal dresses that we wear can be less ceremonious and vice versa in hotels or other public places. This point is especially important if we go somewhere that has a special connection with culture, religion or customs,for example, a temple or a church. In those places we should not leave too much of the body exposed.

There are some other principles that we should also pay attention to.

First our formal dresses don't need to be expensive or made of top quality fabric, but they must be neat and tidy. So before wearing we must have them well pressed.

The color is also a key factor to show your personality and fit with certain occasions. Dark or cool colors are more protective, whereas brighter colors are more fun and outgoing.

Anyway, wearing formal dresses is a big 'image-creating' project. There is a famous saying in the Orient: 'Apparel makes the man.'

The people who wear the dresses are the leading roles, but WHAT they wear can really create a big part of their image. So keep a focus on TOP before your next event and you'll be sure to choose dresses that complement you perfectly!

Pyjama Jeans - They Are All The Rage

 There's something about pyjamas; you would just want to wear them all day. They are so comfortable, cosy and unrestricting and the temptation to wear them throughout the day is almost irresistible at times. Formal wear can be so restrictive and you wish you could find something that would look good on you but provide the comfort and warmth of pyjamas.
Well, now you can wear pyjama jeans, a brand new concept that will be exactly what you have been looking for. Fashionable, stylish, comfortable, warm and relaxing; no wonder they're all the rage.

Never Heard Of Them

It may be that you haven't even heard of such an item of clothing - pyjamas, yes and jeans, yes but not pyjama jeans. Well, now they're here and fashion-conscious women everywhere are experiencing the comfort and style of these unique clothes. They're not sweat pants or jogging bottoms; they fill a niche that ends the problem for many women as to what to wear that will feel great but equally look great on you. Get the name; pyjama jeans.

What Are They Really?

They look like jeans but they feel like pyjamas. You're hardly conscious of them until you look in a mirror and see how stylish they look on you. No longer do you need to compromise on style or comfort; you can have both. I can think of no formal situation throughout the day where you would be uncomfortable wearing these fantastic pyjama jeans. They look just like jeans with jean colored stitching and brass rivets but are made from a special fabric which is a blend of cotton and spandex so that they fit the contours of your body like a glove. The Dormisoft lining gives them the warmth and comfort of pyjamas and they are wrinkle-resistant so you can rely on them to always look good on you.

Have They Had Rave Reviews?

Well, actually, yes! They are becoming increasingly popular and more and more women write to tell us how pleased that they ever discovered such a garment. They fill the gap between pyjamas and jeans perfectly and we can see the market for them continuing to grow exponentially: authentic looking jeans with the unrivalled comfort of pyjamas; every woman's dream.

Where Can I Find Them?

Because of their popularity they are being sold in more retail outlets but the best bargains may still be found online where tempting offers can be found from time to time.
