Q: What are some tried-and-true tips for extending the life of my hair color?

A: Wait 48 hours after your most recent shampoo to have your hair colored; natural oils on your scalp help color to better adhere to your hair.
Wait 48 hours after your color before shampooing, which allows time for the color to completely penetrate the hair.
Shampoo with a sulfate-free formula (such as Enjoy Hair Care) no more than every other day.
Condition thoroughly after each shampoo.
Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight.
Avoid heat styling and additional chemical treatments.
Eat a healthy diet, including heart healthy fats, which will keep your hair strong and shiny.

Q: What is assisted living?

A: Assisted living communities offer a lifestyle for older adults that’s fairly unique; it not only provides security and peace of mind of coordinated support, but opportunities for engaging in social events, outings, affinity groups, wellness support and friendship. A common response from many who move into assisted living is, “Why didn’t I do this sooner?” Those choosing assisted living can be relieved of yard care, home service coordination, cooking meals, house upkeep and overall stress from day-to-day home ownership, as well as allowing them to take advantage of what he/she really wants to be doing—enjoying life to its fullest!
