Colloidal gold and gold nano flakes are both cited as being more effective forms of the material, although given nanoparticles' unregulated status, safety might also be a concern.

I'm a big proponent of going natural when you can, but confused by the term "hippie" when it gets thrown around to talk about ecologically conscious products. There are instances where it can be funny, like this cute Stinky Hippie Body Wash ($13.50), whose illustrated "hippie" girl with fragrant underarm is meant to be amusing. However, a lot of times when people use the term it's pejorative, and suggestive of being not as clean or as well groomed as other people. This is despite the fact that most who use natural products actually take great care with their appearances.
I think being an actual hippie in the late 1960s could have been pretty cool, but I don't know about the term now, especially when it comes to cosmetics and personal care. What do you think? Is it rude to call someone a "hippie" just because they like eco-beauty, or is it just one of those terms that's connected to the green movement and unlikely to go away?
- A natural blonde, PrettyShinySparkly typically has her stylist put both highlights and lowlights in her hair, but due to time constraints, she pulled a DIY, using L'Oréal's Superior Preference in Glistening Magnolia ($15) in hopes of attaining a beachy-white blond. When the color turned out a little bit too buttery-yellow, she applied Wella's Color Charm Toner in #T18 ($5), a subtle lavender, to counteract any unwanted golden-toned pigments. "After rinsing out the toner, shampooing, and deep conditioning, I was shocked and flabbergasted to find that I had accidentally created the most perfect, subtle, barely-there version of the lavender highlights I was so coveting," she said.
- Then, a few weeks later, as the streaks faded into a silver-toned lavender hue, she decided to keep the pastel theme going, applying Manic Panic's Cotton Candy ($7.50) and Mystic Heather ($9). The outcome? Fun and funky pink and purple semipermanent highlights that are perfect for Summer.
