ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Actress and model Molly Sims unveiled her dramatic hair color makeover – from sun-kissed blonde to vibrant red – to underscore the power of the new Nexxus Color Assure color care collection. The collection features a Pre-Wash Primer, our revolutionary first-ever pre-treatment, that shields hair against color fade before it's even a problem.
Sims' color transformation was the vision of celebrity colorist Aura Friedman, who joins the brand as Nexxus Celebrity Color Expert to lend her expertise on color preservation and proper color care.
Best known as an iconic blonde beauty, Sims said she "has always wanted to go red" but worried about keeping the color vibrant. "I am obsessed with this color and I want to keep it looking this way!" says Sims. She was inspired by the new Nexxus Color Assure products to experiment with her color because she is "confident that my color will last longer and my hair always will be camera-ready."
"We know women have an emotional connection with their colored hair - one that starts with elation which turns to frustration because of color fade and the inability to make that color last," said David Rubin, Vice President, Hair Care for Unilever U.S. "By developing Color Assure - with our breakthrough primer to help lock out water so colored hair stays vibrant twice as long - Nexxus makes it possible for women to love their hair color longer!"
Products in the Nexxus Color Assure collection are infused with a blend of clear, weightless oils, including almond, to lock in moisture, nourish hair and reduce breakage; coconut, to provide softness and elasticity; and argan oil, to improve shine and vibrancy. The color care system is sulfate free and provides two times longer color protection, compared with non-conditioning shampoos, when used over an eight-week period.
To celebrate that just-colored feeling, Nexxus is hosting a "Prime Color" contest** on Facebook beginning February 19, 2014 through April 1, 2014. Sims will kick off the contest by posting a selfie of her freshly colored hair, and encourage others to share their own just-colored selfies, using the hashtag #primecolor on Instagram and Twitter. Nexxus will be giving away a daily beauty bundle including the entire Color Assure system (Color Assure Vibrancy Retention Shampoo, Color Assure Vibrancy Retention Conditioner, Color Assure Glossing Tonic and the new Color Assure Pre-Wash Primer), as well as a ceramic hair straightener and curling wand.
For contest details and more information about Color Assure, visit the Nexxus Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/Nexxus.
The Color Assure collection includes: Color Assure Pre-Wash Primer, Color Assure Vibrancy Retention Shampoo. Color Assure Vibrancy Retention Conditioner, and Color Assure Glossing Tonic. The products are now available at mass retailers, select drugstores and supermarkets nationwide. Suggested retail prices are $9.99 - $17.99.

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

I’m going to cry tonight, long and hard. I’ll do so as I remember and mourn Jeremy Geelan. I knew Jeremy for almost 20 years, from the time he showed up one day at Cloud Expo’s headquarters in Bergen County, New Jersey, and went to work. The show wasn’t called Cloud Expo then, of course – it was still known as Java Edge, a pioneering event that grabbed developers, architects, and enterprise IT users alike for twice-yearly confabs. Jeremy didn’t have a job there, or even a job offer. He was s...
