Hair is a Big Business Hair Color in Ventura
It is estimated that the money spent by consumers on hair care products will reach about $90 billion in 2019 worldwide with a large chunk of that money spent in the USA. Aside from the brand name and generic products that line the shelves at the big box retailers or the local “Mom & Pop” stores, there are whole segments of the hair care industry devoted to ethnic hair and specialized treatments.
Many people are not satisfied with the hair that they were born with. People with curly hair want straight hair and vice versa. People with a dark hair color want a lighter hair color. A few grey hairs will cause panic in some people, but the products are made to “wash that gray away” to about any hair color. Today, it is not uncommon to see someone with green or blue tresses in our everyday lives.
The desire to look our best is the driving force behind the explosion of hair care products but looking good is only one aspect for a feeling of peace and well-being. Your hair might be your crowning glory but a negative attitude or an unhealthy feeling will make every day a “bad hair day.”
Enter Billy Yamaguchi and his Feng Shui Approach
In 1993, Billy Yamaguchi introduced his Yamaguchi Soy Shampoo to the world and because of this; hair color in Ventura, California has grown to about 30 products featured in their online catalog. Products exist for every type of hair including Mochi Mousse to give fine hair more volume and an Herbal Gel to give a sleek retro-look and to control curly hair. But Yamaguchi took his products a step further by introducing the concept of Feng Shui into his products and in his salons located in Ventura and other sites throughout the USA.
Feng Shui originated from China about 3000 years ago and uses five elements to create balance and harmony. To better understand Feng Shui, consider the five elements (Fire, Earth, Metal, Wood, and Water) as five sides of a pentagon. Each corner of the pentagon will have four lines extending out to the other four corners. This forms a five-pointed star inside the pentagon as well as a smaller pentagon inside the star. Creative energy flows around the perimeter of the outer pentagon while your controlling energy flows around the perimeter of the inner pentagon.
The philosophy of the Creative cycle is that Water will nourish the Wood, Wood will stoke the Fire, the ash of the Fire creates Earth and Earth eventually turns to Metal that enhances life-giving properties such as Water where we started. The inner Controlling cycle works is a similar matter but in the opposite way such as Water controlling Fire. The purpose of all this is to achieve balance and harmony and use the energy or “Chi” to improve your life.
