In honor of breast cancer awareness, and in support of those who are chronically and terminally ill, the revolutionary hair care company announces two very pink promotions for the months of October. Put the finishing touches on every client’s style by picking up two of Pravana’s top-sellers – Pravana’s Super Shape Hair Spray and Intense Therapy Leave-In Treatment, packaged together in an exclusive breast cancer awareness bag.

The Suggested Retail is $30.
HairUWear wigs are a small step towards recovery. For those undergoing cancer treatments, the aesthetic side-effects can be just as demoralizing as the physical struggle. That’s why HairUWear and style icon Raquel Welch are committed to promoting confidence among those in recovery. Together they donate approximately $1 million worth of wigs from the Raquel Welch Wig Collection to the American Cancer Society each year since 2003. Made from heat-friendly Tru2Life stylable fibers, the Raquel Welch Wig Collection can be curled or straightened with thermal styling tools for beautiful, confidence boosting results that look and feel like natural hair.

All of the classic iron features the industry has come to know and trust will remain the same, just a touch of color in honor those affected by breast cancer.
The Signature Pink promotion, which is in its fourth consecutive year, is designed to raise awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research to help find a cure. InfraShine Inc. and select InfraShine distributors will donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of every Signature Pink iron to various breast cancer research organizations. To qualify for the contribution, all organizations must use at least 80% of the donation directly for breast cancer research.

Fortunate enough to make a full recovery, Ouidad started a crusade against breast cancer, vowing to make a difference in the lives of other women. She founded Curls for a Cure in 2005 to raise funds year-round for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Curls for a Cure is a donation program on Ouidad.com that welcomes visitors to make a donation of their choosing toward Breast Cancer research. Taking her commitment a step further, Ouidad matches any amount donated, dollar for dollar, up to $50,000!
By joining forces with both clients and corporate partners, Ouidad has raised over $350,000 for BCRF to date and over $6,500 in 2011 alone. In addition, the company underwrites all of the administration costs of the program as well as the credit card discount fees on the donations. In this manner, when $10 is donated, BCRF receives a full $10. For each donation, Ouidad offers a special pink bracelet inscribed to show her gratitude.
