Today I had the opportunity to talk to my colleagues about something very important to me, CPR.
This is a subject very close to home for me. As I, my mum, aunt and grand mum all have the same heart condition known as LQT. Monitored this condition is relativity safe, however my aunt has suffered from three cardiac arrests. The good news is she has survived all three thanks to the people around her knowing how to give CPR.
30,000 people in the uk will suffer from an out of hospital heart attack every year, 20% of these will happen in a public place such as a town centre, hair salon or while out for a run.
12 people under 35 die every week from cardiac arrest and 270 children per year.
It is believed that in a room of 100 people only 43 on them will know how to give CPR and only 10 of them will be confident enough to preform it.
Every minute without CPR reduces the chances of survival by 10%, in urban areas the wait time for emergency services is 10minutes. 40% to 100% of people will die in this time.
The British heart foundation believes that people lack the skills, abilities and confidence to preform CPR and are making it there mission to have CPR added to secondary school curriculum.
In some cases preforming CPR can double the chance of surviving a out of hospital heart attack or cardiac arrest and so it is vital witnesses to one have the skills and confidence to step in and help.
I wanted to talk to the team to show them the importance of learning CPR and to show them some videos on how to preform it.
I also spoke to the team about public AEDs, I explained what they were, where our closest one was and showed them a video about how to use one.

As part of the BNF Healthy Eating week running from the 12th to 16th June 2017, The Grove Experience decided to dedicate their weekly team meeting to promoting the importance of eating a healthy well balanced diet.

VOLUNTEER TO HELP CHILDREN IN SOUTH AFRICA
Build4TheFuture provides homes and shelter for child-headed families in the KwaZulu-Natal region of South Africa.
What do we mean by a child-headed family? Families where orphans are living on their own and without the love, guidance and support of parents.
In this region there are about 9,000 orphans. Many of their parents have died from AIDS or related illnesses, and the children live in groups for safety. It is not unusual for 20 children to be living in one house.
We have Five team members joining the charity for trips in 2018.
In august 2018 Emma Hobden & Evie Chapman will be traveling with a larger group to help build a house for a group of children.
In October 2018 three others will travel out. Celina Zomer, Kiki Cavie (with husband Tony) and Gary Young, will be joining a trip to build;ld another house in the same region of KwaZulu-Natal South Africa.
Over the next 18 months we will be completing a number of events to help raise the money needed to travel out and build the houses. £2,300 each thats a massive £11,500 we need to get before we travel out.
Anything you can do to help, anything you could offer us to raffle or sell or just plain old cash sponsor to our Just giving page would be amazing and very much appreciated.
Winner of £600 worth of Extensions from The Grove Experience Hair-salon in Eastbourne is……………
Becca Medhurst… Congratulations !!
Becca was the lucky winner of the recent competition run by the Grove Experience in the Sussex edition of the ETC magazine. Mecca was picked at random by the editor of the magazine from the hundreds of enters to the competition.
Becca visited the Grove Experience Hair salon in Grove Road in Eastbourne in November 2015 and was looked after by Anete Abele one of the Extensionist working at the salon. Anete worked with Balmain Double hair with Mirroring fill-ins to complete the look. After colour matching Becca’s hair and giving with a deep cleanse and a pre haircut to get ready for the extension service Anete started to attach the Double hair strips using Micro rings, Once she had created a length and an outline shape she used single Balmain Micro loop Extensions to create a blend.
Anete then cut the extensions to the desired length and shape and finished the look with some Paul Mitchell Neuro curl tongs. Becca also received a Balmain after care kit to take home and use to look after her new extensions.
We would like to congratulate Becca on winning the ETC magazine prize and thank Anete for the great transformation she achieved on Becca. What a fantastic result.

“One Ingredient changes everything.”
“The Grove Experience” is proud to be amongst the first in the UK/Ireland to launch Olaplex as a new in salon service.
This revolutionary new colour upgrade service has become a sensation amongst Hollywood’s ‘A’ celebrities and across the world.
“The Holy Grail for Hair Colour”
“If a beauty company could keep chemical treatments from hurting hair, that’d really be something.” These were the thoughts of Dean Cristal, founder of Olaplex when conceiving the scientific solution for this new Wonder Product.
With Dean’s and his scientists discovery, Hair Colouring, may never been the same again…so here’s what
Olaplex helps rebuild the broken disulphide bonds within the hair that can break during chemical processes, particularly colouring or using thermal heated tools. Disulphide bonds are the bonds that give elasticity and strength to the hair.
Use Olaplex as a pre-treatment or alongside colouring or lightening hair.
This chemistry has never been seen before and opens up brand new possibilities in hairdressing colour variations.
Seeing ….and Feeling is believing.
