We may not be aware that we are unknowingly putting harmful chemicals on our hair thus resulting to general conditions such as migraine, nausea and skin rashes. The symptoms may be quickly attributed to stress but if you look closer to that hair product you’re using, you’ll be surprise to find the culprit.

Popularity does not equate to safety, some popular brands sold in the market are loaded with mildly toxic chemicals that may be harmful in prolonged use.

Novuhair, Nature’s answer to hair loss, gives you the lowdown on these chemicals to help you with your choices.



Myth: Shampoo must produce lots of lather in order to properly clean your hair.

Truth: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) is a compound that helps shampoo and other cleaning product in producing foam and bubbles. Though it may effectively remove hair build-up, it can also strip off essential oils that is needed to keep your hair healthy.

Myth: Parabens has an anti-bacterial compound benefits that outweighs the harm.

Truth: Parabens are basically used to prolong the shelf life of hair and cosmetic products mostly for its antibacterial purpose. Symptoms that are related to over exposure to parabens are Atopic Dermatitis and Rosacea. Further studies also show that use of products with parabens accelerate skin damage and aging related to sun exposure.

Myth: My hair smells terrific! I love the perfume scent on my hair product.

Truth: A nice whiff of perfume might not be harmful but the fragrance that is mixed in your hair product might have come from harmful substances from highly toxic ingredients which can lead to Allergic reactions and mood swings. That perfume is better off somewhere else.

Myth: Hair products that promise straightening and smoothening effect use non-toxic Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate as a natural preservative.

Truth: Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate is a substance used in making your hair soft and bouncy, although it is considered natural preservative, also releases formaldehyde which can lead to skin and eye irritations. Prolonged use may also affect your immune system.

Use of some of these chemicals combined may also result to hair loss and other hair problems, thus, it is important to be an informed consumer. A lot of new products have saturated the market hence, read the labels for fine prints before buying.

Novuhair, nature’s answer to hair loss is made of 19 Natural ingredients which includes herbal components such as moringa oleifera, panax ginseng, virgin coconut oil and the 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. Novuhair also helps hydrate the scalp, maintain the hair’s natural luster and prevent early hair graying, hair dryness and itching.

Big fridge for small business

Full-size functionality with Haier’s large-capacity refrigerators

Food entrepreneurship in the last few years has branched away from the traditional restaurant model as more businesses set up at home or join food parks across the Metro. But success in this rising sector takes more than just delicious food, value for money, or even connections.

“Consumers today aren’t just picky eaters, they also look at the whole service when evaluating the quality of a food stall or restaurant,” Haier’s Product Manager for Refrigerators Jennifer Samson said. “With that in mind, aspiring food businesses should always be ready to meet customer expectations.”

Kitchen functionality is vital to quality food service, and appliances like the refrigerator play a central role in keeping the prep area organized and efficient. Unfortunately, a typical residential fridge might prove too small for storing a week’s worth of food and drinks, while a commercial refrigerator might be too bulky for a house or small stall.

The best a small space can hope for is a large-capacity refrigerator with the same basic features of a residential unit. This is the solution that Haier is offering small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) that aspire to be next big hit for foodies.

Sizeable efficiency

It’s very tempting for new food entrepreneurs to purchase more than one storage appliance to accommodate items from fresh ingredients and pre-prepared food to chilled beverages and ice. The problem is the limited space, plus the added power costs.

Haier addresses these concerns with the Negosyo Series—large-capacity refrigerators designed with food SMEs in mind. Available in 6.6 and 8.4 cubic feet sizes, these units are designed to store plenty of items as needed by the business.

A highlight of the series is the bottom freezer, which utilizes Direct Cool Technology for a faster cooling performance compared to top mount refrigerators. Unlike in residential units, the bottom freezer comprises almost half the refrigerator so it can hold more frozen goods. The bottom freezer also includes a beverage bottle bin where users can store two-liter bottles.

But while the Negosyo Series has a faster cooling performance, it has a higher Energy Efficiency Factor (EFF) at 154-210, which results to lower power consumption and costs.

Optimal access

Aside from its efficient performance and energy-saving capacity, the Negosyo Series has stainless steel door panels and hidden handles, which give kitchens a touch of elegance. Though these fridges stand out for their beauty, they still meet users’ need for functional design.


The Negosyo Series takes the familiar two-door design to make it easier to use the fridge without having to read a manual. The bottom-mount scheme puts the refrigerator at eye-level to add convenience when getting frequently accessed items such as chilled water, condiments, and drinks for sale. Organization is also not a problem thanks to adjustable shelving in both sections.

For added convenience, the door hinges can be installed either on the left or right side to suit the setup of the space or the user’s preference.

“It’s important that kitchen appliances are efficient especially when used for business, since there’s nothing more annoying for customers than late food,” Product manager said. “With commercial refrigerators designed like home units, small food businesses can enjoy convenience while offering great customer service.”

Haier’s Negosyo Series comes with a two-year warranty for parts and labor as well as a five-year warranty for the compressor.
