Okay... It's time I talk some sense with you.
Have you ever looked back at pictures of yourself, and were horrified at how you looked? Didn't you ask yourself, "Why didn't anyone tell me?"
Well, I'm going to tell you a few things about your thinning hair that no one else wants to say. Wouldn't you rather hear the truth even if it hurts a bit, rather than lose your hair out of my being polite?
The products you are using on your hair are made of the same elements that bathroom and kitchen caulk are made of. Yes, that nasty stuff in the corners of your shower, sink and even around the toilet. It's caulk....silicone caulk.
Silicone and derivatives:
DIMETHICONE, SIMETHICONE,CYCLOMETHICONE,DIMETHICONE, PHENYL TRIMETHICONE, AMODIMETHICONE, DIMETHICONE COPOLYOL, CYCLOMETHICONE, SILICONE QUATERNIUM-8, TRIMETHLYSILOXYAMODIMETHICONE, DIMETHICONOL, DIMETHICONE PEG-7,POLYSILICONE-9,CYCLOPENTASILOXANE, DIVINYL-DIMETHICONE, DIMETHICONE COPOLYMER ,PEG-12 DIMETHICONE, CYCLOHEXASILOXANE, PEG-PPG-18/18 DIMETHICONE , METHICONE, DIVINYLDIMETHICONE, and the list goes on, because chemical manufacturers are making new versions all the time. The clue is usually a word ending in -cone, -xane, -sane! Go ahead... check the gel and conditioner you use.
What's so bad about it? You don't have all day to read the ongoing list of reasons I could write here.
Let's just look at it a few ways.
It's natural. It's made of sand. Wikipedia can explain more. Silicones are polymers that include any inert, synthetic compound made up of repeating units of siloxane, which is a chain of alternating silicon atoms and oxygen atoms, frequently combined with carbon and/ or hydrogen. They are typically heat-resistant and rubber-like, and are used in sealants, adhesives, lubricants, medicine, cooking utensils, and thermal and electrical insulation. Some common forms include silicone oil, silicone grease, silicone rubber,silicone resin, and silicone caulk.
The last time I checked, caulk, a synthesized compound from sand, is used to seal edges of my tub, shower and toilet, and to keep liquids from pentrating.
Hmmm... silicone derivatives aka caulk compounds are in gels? Why would I want to put sealant type synthetics on my scalp and hair. Wouldn't that clog the very follicles that I depend on to grow hair? A daily dose of this on the scalp and hair to make my little hairs look fuller as it suffocates and clogs the follicle, so that I need more "caulk" compounds tomorrow to make my poor little (and fewer) hairs look fuller... AAAHH! What a cycle! I guess it's good for the so-called hair growth products that promise to help (don't look now, but they put caulk in theirs, too!) But, don't worry, it's natural! And, remember the natural stuff from the expensive organic food store? Don't look, now... caulk derivatives from there are natural, because you pay more for it there!
Without spelling it out in black and white (which may even be politically incorrect to write by now), you have been bamboozled. You have been taken. You are being stolen from. You got fooled into believing fancy bottles, glossy ads in magazines, TV commercials, infomercials, even "celebrity" stylists who didn't realize the truth, and you've been pouring out hard-earned money for glorified sand! If you don't feel like slapping me, yet, let me keep going.
We've been nice. We've been politically correct, and we've bowed down and not told the truth about this big scam. We've been politely telling you our products are amazing...because they are. We've been beating around the bush, trying to warn you from the garbage you've been paying for. Especially the cheap stuff you try, because you have to try so many, you don't notice that you throw it out and start over with a new product every couple of weeks. Then you buy the expensive stuff, but you don't realize it is the same basic recipe with a "trendy" 1% magical ingredient sprinkled in to make it SOUND effective. What good is 1% when it's sprinkled into a bottle of liquid caulky sand? The bottle is pretty. The model is pretty. She's the highest paid celebrity and is a great actor! She knows how to pretend better than anyone else and learned the lines she got paid to say!
Ready to slap me.... or kiss me for telling you something that is so obvious.
This is the truth part that sets us all free.
So, Cheryl and I are here to help you. We have been nice, and have spent our lives making great products for so many reasons. We always want to believe that everyone is on the up and up and offer the best for everyone. But let me tell you.. it is not easy, cheap or simple to do what we did. We understand why big manufacturers sell the garbage they sell. Great ingredients are expensive. They are worth it, AND they are expensive. Most people settle for mediocrity and you might have been one of them. That you are reading this, proves that you are waking up to excellence and truth, and are now ready to elevate yourself to the next level.
We have painstakingly developed a line of products that we trust for ourselves and our family and our loved ones. We have been spear-heading the market for years with NO awards or acknowledgement. WE INVENTED THE SILICONE-FREE category of products! We did it because we know they are not good for the body. The manufacturers know this, yet the introduced it a new way to fool you again... they make theirs "free of HEAVY silicones!" Silicones essentially are not heavy to begin with! That's the joke. They make lighter/smaller silicones (see above list) to be lightweight, but they are more easily taken into the body to wreak havoc! Don't even think about those leaky breast implants...
Haven't you started wondering about how many people are getting strange illnesses?
Well, back to your hair and caulk!
Do you really think it's a good idea to feed your hair and scalp sand derivatives?
Do you think that rubbery stuff around your tub, shower and toilet are good elements for your beauty regimen?
Don't you think it's time to upgrade your knowledge about the beauty industry?
We've been quiet long enough.
You can enjoy good for you products now. We've done the research. We've filed for patents-pending. We've take away silicones, phthalates ( another one we didn't get credit for), we never used parabens, we warned the public against formaldehydes before keratins had been outed as dangerous! We are always MANY steps ahead of the game, and we are here to tell you we are the leaders!
It may sound arrogant. We realize that no organization wants to put its neck on the line and award us as THE LEADERS of the BEAUTY INDUSTRY! To do so will incriminate themselves. The manufacturers can't admit it as they pawn off cheap chemicals that are leftovers from the sand industry, petroleum industry (where do you think hair color comes from?) to you in sweet smelling potions in expensive packages for you to smear all over your precious body. Just because it looks natural by great artists and packaging people doesn't make it so. Nor does natural always mean natural (caulk made of sand is natural, right?)
So, we have now drawn a line in the sand! LOL!
Belegenza, Cheryl and Alan are the leaders of the beauty industry. The REAL beauty industry. We stand for and create safe, food grade products that SERVE YOU in being as beautiful, powerful and healthy as possible.
So, back to your hair and caulk?
We know you get the point of this rant! We thank you for listening/reading. For those of you who've been loyal users of Belegenza and our followers, we owe you a VERY SPECIAL thank you! You've put your money on us, and we couldn't have done it otherwise!
We've got some amazing new products in the pipeline, so we need your help. The thing that will move them all forward is your telling your friends, family and loved ones to use Belegenza. We just have to sell more, so that we can make enough to afford the next product launch! So, rather than asking you to buy more, more often, we are asking you to tell your loved ones about Belegenza so that we have MORE CUSTOMERS! This way we can bring more products to the market!
Pass this blog entry on, and spread the message. For years we've been expecting someone to exceed our quality, principles, and concepts. No one else has our experience, nor our commitment and fortitude. One day, we may tell our stories about how many obstacles we had to overcome, but in the meantime, we are just staying busy doing what we do best--making superior products of food grade goodness that work and are safe for you, safe for us, and safe for the planet! We are the leaders of the REAL beauty industry!
Just in case you are not enrolled in us, take a look from this perspective. You tell your loved ones about products that are safe because you care about their health and wellbeing. They get the best results they've ever had with their hair. They save tons of money by using high quality, concentrated, effective products made of foods, not chemicals. They look great all the time. The planet gets cleaner because our spill-off is natural. Less silicone derivatives end up in our rivers, streams, and oceans. Isn't this awesome that you can now make a global difference simply by talking about beauty and hair?
We appreciate your orders, and that's quite a comment! Feel free though, to comment below and let's make this a better, more beautiful place for everyone!
