Team Talk on CPR by Aimee Moon

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.

National Healthy Eating week at the Grove

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.

We Provided a platter of delicious seasonal and exotic fruits for our team and trainees to enjoy. They were also encouraged to complete a food diary for one day during the week where all food and drink consumed was documented as well as all physical activity.

This was followed up by a discussion to see where changes could be made to improve their diets and lifestyles to make them healthier.

8 Tips for healthy Eating

  1. Base your meals on starchy carbohydrates – they should make up over one third of the food you eat.
  2. Eat lots of Fruit and vegetables – at least five portions a day and make sure you choose a wide variety.
  3. Eat More Fish – at least two a week include at least one portion of oily fish such as Salmon, mackerel , Trout, Herring, fresh tuna, Sardines, pilchards.
  4.  Cut down on saturated fats and sugar – such as hard cheese, cakes, biscuits, sausages, cream, butter, Lard, Pies, Fizzy drinks, alcohol, sugary breakfast cereals and pastries.
  5. Eat Less Salt – No More than 6g a day for adults. Remember that about three quarters of salt we eat is already in the food we buy such as breakfast cereal, soaps, breads and sauces.
  6. Get active and be a healthy weight – set some time aside for physical activity, walk instead of driving where possible, try something new, swimming and cycling are great ways to keep fit and can be great fun.
  7. Don’t Get Thirsty – Drink plenty of fluids to stop you getting dehydrated. The Government recommends  SIX to EIGHT glasses of water a day.
  8. Don’t Skip Breakfast – Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day!!.Breakfast like a King – Lunch like a Queen – supper like a pauper.

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.

OLAPLEX at the Grove Experience Hair Salon

OLAPLEX®
“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”

Opalex-Web-Banner_shop_now_1278x460L

“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 does:

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.
U.S. Patent Approved

f60e50b3fc2039f61650d71682e6c421

Look online for hair pictures you like. We recommend Pinterest as you can create mood boards of your favourite pics. Great to take to your stylist and show. Check out ours for some inspiration. :https://www.pinterest.com/groveexperience/

  • Once you have chosen your prefect dress think about whats going to work best with neck lines and details on the dress. If your dress has lots of detail, maybe choosing a simple hairstyle would work best.

Wedding dress

  • what feels more comfortable to you ? Do you like your hair up or down? NOT all bridal hair has to be up. It will not suit everyone or every dress style.

  • We recommend coming in for a free consultation with our long hair experts! They will be able to give you advice and help you choose a style that works for you and your wedding style.

  • Wedding hair trials are a great way to try different styles – We recommend bringing your camera so you can take pictures of different looks to help you chose. Also some brides don’t find their perfect style on the first trial so have this well before the day to give you time to reselect.
    The thing to watch is the hair on the day will not be the same as on the trial so get an idea not a fixed look.

  • Bridesmaids – some brides like their bridesmaids to look the same and some will what them all different. if you what that very symmetrical look then pre-plan who the bridesmaids will be. Height/ hair colour / hair length.

  • Its a great idea to do a hair trial on the day of your hen do or an outing so you can keep the hair in to see how well it lasts.
    It is also a good idea to do your make-up trail on the same day. Great an idea of the full look.

Cow’s Lick – Widows Peek and how to deal with them. by Jess Capon

Cow’s lick?

Fringe separating?

You want the fringe to be the FIRST area you start to blow dry, as soon as the fringe starts to dry naturally, you will not be able to budge it!

It’s all about confusing the root so it will sit flatter to the head.

IMG_6092

After applying your chosen Paul Mitchell Heat protection product and styling product best suited to your hair type and the end result required. If you need help with these please pop in for a free consultation and we will work out the best products for you.

IMG_6089

Start of by blow drying the fringe from side to side using a Paul Mitchell 413 sculpting brush.

IMG_6091

 

After this gently flatten the root with the sculpting brush insuring all jumps have have gone.

Fringe blow dry

Once you have done this then style your fringe were you wish to wear it.
