Sport Clips - Massaging the Scalp with Julie Vargas


Julie Vargas, a licensed stylist and director of Career Opportunities for Sport Clips, the nation's largest men's and boy's hair care provider joined the show. She has been in the hair care industry for 20 years working daily with leading cosmetology educators, product representatives and professional stylists.

Note: Refer to audio player below to listen to this episode!


Julie Vargas discusses & answers the following:

  • What do men need to do to keep a healthy look?

Hair tends to grow about a half inch per month, so Sport Clips recommends a hair cut about every three to four weeks, depending upon the style you choose.

  • Do you recommend trims in between haircuts or does once-and-done every few weeks cut it for guys?

At Sport Clips we focus on men's haircare, and they tend to see growth around the neckline in-between cuts.  We offer free neck trims to keep the look tidy, especially if you're in the working world and want to maintain a polished image.  For younger guys and those in more creative professions, a little shaggier look is common, so the neck trim is not as critical.

  • Are there special shampoos or tactics that really seem to work to make your hair look and feel healthier?

Anytime you use a professional product you are using a product that is better for your hair than a store bought product with a high alcohol content.  We uses products that contain Tea Tree Oil and there are many positives associated with that ingredient, it definitely tingles the scalp.  Also, we offer something called an MVP Experience, it's a steamed towel, neck and shoulder massage -- something that offers guys a stress reducer when they're in for a haircut, adding to their overall relaxation and well-being.

  • What about massaging the scalp...does that stimulate hair growth?  Can it prevent baldness?

It can help to stimulate growth and blood circulation…maybe prevent the quantity of hair loss.

  • About the shampoos and treatments that are out there really work?

Sure they do…however, the real key is to catch it before it happens so that it becomes a preventative process verses a recovery process which very seldom has a high success rate.

Partial Transcript of Interview with Dr. Michael Werner

Eric Michaels: Is there a particular or common age range in men where they begin to experience ED issues?

Dr. Werner: Most men feel that it is psychological and they worry that it is something in their head. For most men that are over thirty-five, 90% of the time it is a physical problem. If it's going to be physical, 90% of the time it is a circulation problem, having a hard time getting the blood into the penis and having a hard time holding on to it. The main risk factors are the same risk factors for men having a heartache or a stroke. For example, high blood pressure or diabetes or high cholesterol or smoking. So we see that a lof of these men really have vascular issues. Another issue could be neurologic for example if they have...

Eric Michaels: What are the most common treatments for ED?

Dr. Werner: The most common treatment of course is one of the PDE5 inhibitor (i.e. Viagra, Levitra, or Cialis). Viagra came out in March of 1998 and revolutionized the entire field and American men began to talk about its erection issues and how often and how common it was. All these medications are different but act in the same way. Basically when a man gets excited he sends chemicals to the smooth muscle of the penis which causes it to relax so it activates the trapping mechanism of the arteries. Our body says it doesn't want an erection forevereven if most of us want an erection forever and so we send an enzyme that breaks...

Partial Transcript of Interview with Dr. Marcus Laux

Eric Michaels: Where does a man begin in being sexually healthy?

Dr. Laux: Job #1 is the relationship with themselves. A person has to have a solidarity a sexual core - a liking themselves and they have to have a good relationship with their wife as well but it always starts with their person first. I go back when I deal with men and their relationship to how they feel about life, how they feel about sex, where they come from in their relationship with their parents, how did they get along as they were growing up - those things will set the stage for being sexually healthy. Once we get past the interpersonal stuff and the interpersonal relationship then it is about lifestyle, it is going to matter what you eat and how you conduct your life, whether you are getting enough sleep, whether junk food dominates your life, what is your weight - so it is an inside job and it's about how you conduct your life as you go forward.

Eric Michaels: Is sex really good for you, for me, for anyone?

Dr. Laux: Absolutely YES IT IS! I think sex is as critical as breathing and eating for long term health. Sex should be satisfying, sex should be bonding, sex should be making our hearts stronger, relieving our stress hormones, helping tone our muscles, lowering our blood pressure - so I say all that as sex can be harmful if it's not in a loving relationship. Sex can be problematic if their are psychological issues associated with it that don't make this a loving, bonding event. But sex, in and of itself, regardless of religious background, regardless of overlays sex is incredibly important and I find in practice, men and women who have regular satisfying sex are the healthiest people - from heart conditions to joint problems to stress to sleep - it would be my opinion in my clinical experience that sex is mandatory and something to be worked on to have a satisfying sex life.

Eric Michaels: What is the number-one cause of ED?

Dr. Laux: I think it's pretty clear from all the literature whether we look at natural medicine or conventional medicine that ultimately, I would call it stress and inflammation. Inflammation which causes stress within the circulatory system this causes the body to create band-aids inside our arteries and veins those band-aids become what we call plaque, plaque ends up narrowing the blood vessels and the smaller blood vessels that go to the eyes and the ears, the brain and the toes and the penis and all the small areas of the body get compromised the most. When you have decrease in blood flow, you do not have the ability to have a spontaneous quick erection as much ans that is going to be a problem first and foremost for ED.

Pick Up Lines Are BOGUS! Just Be GENUINE!


Brian Freedman joins the show to talk about being single and how to capitalize. If there is one that is wise in his younger years it's Brian. Brian Freedman is 23. He has spent over two and a half years answering men and womens relationship related questions through various sites.  
Personally, I think pick up lines are bogus. Pretty much any girl I go up to whom I've never met and say, "I wish I was a mirror, so you could see how beautiful you are" would either get me a chuckle and then have her turn away or just stand there having her awkwardly stare at me with a "That's it, really?" look.  
Pick up lines are merely ways that break the tension, and show how intelligent and funny you are to a stranger you hope to bang later on.  I go with Olivia Munn when she says the best pick up line is, "Hey, my name is Jeff."  Simple. Sweet. To the point. No attempt to be anything but genuine. And to keep the conversation going, notice what the other person is doing and wearing. If a girls at a club, ask her what's her favorite song to dance to. If she looks well put together, then she probably spent 2+ hours in front of a mirror before going out so say something to valid that effort.  A simple, "I like your dress" or a bit funnier, "Does your hair always look this sexy?" 
At the end of the day, there's no magical formula or one line that will make the other person want to have you right there just be yourself and if they're not feeling you after a minute, don't try harder.  Just cut your losses and move on.

Transcript of Interview with Brian Freedman

Eric Michaels: What is your approach when seeing a gal you want to meet or get them to notice you?

Brian Freedman: Well, that would be an easy question to answer if I actually cared meeting anyone.  I'm 23, been single my whole life and I love being single.  I guess I have a case of Stockholm syndrome towards my singledom.  Now, am I against getting into a relationship if a pretty young thang comes my way?  Of course not.  But I don't actively seek the opposite sex. But, something two years ago I went to the mall with a idea.  I've heard women hate pick ups lines, so I decided to keep it simple.  My objective was to ask out three girls using a simple formula: "Hi my name is Brian.  I think you're really pretty.  Would you like to go out this weekend."  Your name.  A Compliment.  And then ask them out.  That's it.  I just wanted to see what would happen, would it work or was is it too simple, too straightforward?  Only one way to find out.  The first girl I asked turned me down.  Okay, didn't work on her.  The second girl I had to wait in line 15 minutes holding nothing in my hands to purchase so when I got to the cash register and asked her out, she just looked at me, and in a kind weirded/creeped out voice said, "Nooo, I have a boyfriend."  Wow, that was awkward.  Mind you, I figured I would get turned down by all three women from the beginning, but I had nothing to lose because I didn't care if they said yes or not, I was just curious to see if my simple 3 sentence approach would work or not.  So the last girl I asked out, she was not nonchalant like the first one, or disturbed like the 2nd one, she was very appreciative and was flattered that I asked her out.  Unlike the others, she thought it was sweet.  She genuinely said no because she had a boyfriend, but before I left she told me to feel free to stop whenever I was at the mall and say hi.  Now that's a sweet girl. So saying your name, then a compliment, and asking out kind-"worked" 1 out 3 times.

Eric Michaels: Why do you think some singles struggle in finding the love of their life?

Brian Freedman: People's standards are off.  And by off, I mean waaaayyy under what they should be.  An okay guy asks you out and you figure, "Meh, not like I have any other offers."  Then you're in a passionless relationship for 6 months until you break up realizing what you knew from the start.  It's so easy to settle because there's no other offers.  I mean, it's better to have something than nothing, right?  Aside from standards, there's just no real place to go to find an amazing person.  Most people only go to clubs or bars but women run into drunk guys or jerks and men run into not necessarily the classiest of women.  Typically, you won't find and be able to flourish a quality relationship in that type on environment.  So what is the right place to meet Mr. Right?  Hell if I know.  I'm in the same boat as everyone else.  For me, I choose just to sit back and enjoy the ride and not worry when the love of my life will come into my life because in reality, I am the love of my life before anyone else is.

Eric Michaels: What is a total turn off for you in relation to a woman?

Brian Freedman: I could say butt ugly, but that would make me seem shallow.  (But it's still true)  Also just as important, is that if she doesn't have her life together.  If a woman is frantic, stressed, doesn't communicate well, refuses to respect anyone else other than herself, has no ambition or direction in life.  A lot of people want the same thing so it's nothing original.  I would be appalled if she owned any credit cards and/or had debt.  That's a big no-no.  I've been following Dave Ramsey, financial guru on the east coast, and to me, if a girl uses credit cards and is in debt it just means she's stupid, lazy, and immature.  Overall, it shows me she doesn't respect her finances and since that's the number one cause of divorce, the woman I'm with definitely has to have her financial life together.

Eric Michaels: Would you admit that LOOKS aren't the most important thing to a guy who is attracted to a particular woman?

Brian Freedman: That's hard to admit Eric.  Now, you're right, looks are not the most important thing to a man, but it's definitely top 5.  Are you hot?  Are you smart?  Are you funny?  Are you successful?  Are you interested in me?  The same thing goes for women as it does to men.  Being attractive isn't #1, but when you meet a person for the first time all you really have to go on is looks.  Looks tell a lot about a person.  Are the groomed?  That means they care about their appearance.  Do they shave?  They're not lazy.  Are they fat?  They must not work out.  Are they fit?  They care about their body.  Is there hair shiny?  They take showers.  And it goes on.  It's not so primitive to say, "You hot lady.  I want you now."  There's a lot more too it.  Your looks reveal a Facebook glimpse of your personality.

Eric Michaels: Why do you feel some singles are in a hurry to get married? Why the rush?

Brian Freedman: They're probably Christian or Catholic and can't wait to have sex.  Or they're in a rush to have kids because she's already pregnant and they want the child to be born into a family.  Depending on how old these single are their biological clock is ticking.  Honestly, I'm not exactly sure why some people are in such a rush to get married.  But from my experience, when you rush into marriage, not long before you rush into divorce.

Eric Michaels: Brian, how can our listeners be in contact with you online - is that an option?

Brian Freedman: I currently connect with people through my YouTube -  Just my name. Did my best to make it simple.

Eric Michaels: In conclusion any advice or a tip you could lend our listeners...

Brian Freedman: It's best not to get into a real relationship unless you love and are happy with yourself.  So many arguments and frustration in a relationship are due to miscommunication and immaturity from one or both parties.  Okay, I know it's a tall order, but I'm not asking you to be Ghandi and at complete peace with yourself.  It would simply be better for you and your partner if you both come into the relationship with a perspective where you have a healthy level of understanding, compassion, and independence.  That's not too much to ask.

The Coolest Way to Flirt - EVER!


RACHEL DeAlto Founder, FlipMe! Cards

joins eHealth Radio

A graduate of Syracuse University with a B.S. in Advertising from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, Rachel DeAlto planned and purchased media for various regional and national clients before deciding to go to law school. She received her Juris Doctorate at Seton Hall University School of Law in Newark, NJ. After passing the New Jersey Bar, Rachel joined a law firm in Central New Jersey specializing in civil litigation.

During law school, Rachel caught the eye of a curious guy (her future husband John) across the dining room while having lunch with her parents at a local restaurant. With intentions of not disrespecting Rachel’s parents, John left a note with the waitress along with his phone number and asked her to slip Rachel the note after he left. Three days later, Rachel dialed into her fate. Six weeks later, they were engaged to be married. Having met through their own “flip experience,” Rachel and John are excited to give others the opportunity to be ready the next time someone catches their eye. After several years as a trial attorney, Rachel unexpectedly found herself literally face to face with her first entrepreneurial venture.  The unique way in which John and Rachel met reinstated the importance of the initial face to face chemistry needed for the perfect dating formula. Combining initial chemistry with personalized and private dating cards, Rachel has boxed the perfect dating formula with the creation of FlipMe cards.

In June 2010, John and Rachel launched FlipMe cards, a new dating retail product with an online component which gives singles the chance to make connections they might otherwise miss and puts fate back in the hands of the desired. It’s as simple as looking, liking and flipping. Rachel resides with her husband, John, and children in New Jersey.


Partial Transcript of Interview with Rachel DeAlto of

Eric Michaels: In regards to dating and ways to meet new people - this is a very cool & clever approach! Why did Rachel DeAlto create FlipMe?

Rachel DeAlto: It's funny because it actually started the way I met my husband. We were at a restaurant, I was having lunch with my parents and he was sitting next to me at a table near his collegues and he kept giving my eye contact. In a normal world, everyone would leave and would have missed an opportunity instead my husband actually ripped of a piece of the place mat and passed a note to me through the waitress. Two years after that, we have been married for five years now, we were sitting around just thinking what if we created a way where other people could avoid those missed opportunities and meet people in daily life that they are making that eye contact with and could have a really good chemistry with without having to put themselves too far out there and have to approach somebody by going up and asking for a phone number or something of that sort - so that's what led to the creation of Flipme!

Eric Michaels: So....tell us how does work?

Rachel DeAlto: It actually is very simple. The member receives a pack of 30 cards, they activate their card and they can pass them out to anyone they see in daily life that they're attracted to. You could pass the card out to a woman on the subway, in a coffee shop - each card has a flirty phrase and it has unique codes on it that links her to you and only the two of you are allowed to communicate on the web site. So bascially it is just a way to communicate with people in every day life without giving too much personal information.

Eric Michaels: How is FlipMe different than other online dating sites?

Rachel DeAlto: Online dating sites are great and they do work for a lot of people but I think they are missing out on one key ingredient and that's chemistry. There is something that you can't explain when you meet somebody and when you have eye contact with someone. There is that attraction that you have for an individual that really helps build that foundation of the relationship. As opposed to online dating you are actually meeting in real life and having that physical chemistry with that person and then falling in love with them instead of the reverse which is how online dating is set up that you are almost falling in love with a profile and when you meet them in person you realize that this isn't a person that you are attracted to and it's someon that you can't actually build a relationship with.

Some of these men are  in their 20s, looking to understand how to socialize after college and  eventually settle down. Some are eligible men in their late 30s who are  looking to settle down. Some are in their 40s who may be divorced and  are ready to start something new. Whatever the case is, Thomas has  proven to be able to prepare any man or woman to find love implementing  his unique methods.

Thomas has been striving to reach out to as  many people as possible, no matter their dating circumstance.

eHealth Radio had the opportunity to catch up with Thomas Edwards in a recent interview.

Part of Interview Transcript:

Eric Michaels: What inspired you to create the Professional Wingman?

Thomas Edwards: So it actually goes back to my sophomore year in college which is back in 2004. I was dating someone who I truly loved and I thought she was the one, even at my young age. I went as far as asking her parents for their blessing as I was wanting to propose to her. A week later after I had met with her parents she cheated on me. I was totally heart broken and wasn't sure what to do. I almost felt as if I had lost a sense of identity & purpose. What I tried to do was really alter everything that was going on in my life as a way to A. Try to forget what happened and B. Try to start a new life. So, I transferred colleges, I moved off campus, I picked up a job and I even went as far as buying a new car and realized that none of those materialistic things worked. I have always been someone that has always blamed myself first for problems that have gone on in my life. If it was a way I could control it or there was always a problem that it is my fault. By taking that approach it motivated me to see what was I doing wrong in my relationships that was causing me to be dumped or cheated on have it not work out. The first book I came across was "Seven Habits of Highly Effective People". That book written by Stephen Covey completely changed my whole perspective on communication and negotiation and just being a more efficient and effective person overall. That kind of jump started my quest become a better person all around so I continued to read more books on being more efficient in life, fitness nutrition, style and fashion, sexiness - anyway to just be a better person. I was doing a lot of reading for a year and a half but not much practicing. Being at this new college I figured why not - there's nothing to lose and nobody to dump me. I then began to practice some of these things and realized that these things are actually working, these things that I had been reading in these books are actually working.  I went full force and a year later I'm kinda living like a rock star on campus. I had an apartment, I was active on campus, I was involved in athletics, I was really doing well in my classes, my professors loved me and I was pretty much living the ideal college life. Even at this point I was single by choice because I was just focusing on me and who I was as a person. I don't think I was ready to share my life with somebody or have enough quality. Finally I made that decision to share my life with someone and she actually lived a couple of floors above me in my dorm and I thought, hey, everything I had wanted to accomplish in college has been done and I even had the hottest girl in school - WHAT ELSE IS THERE TO DO? Eventually it led to failure just because I got complacent. I didn't think there was anything else to accomplish. One of the biggest lessons I had to learn was - it may take a lot of work to get to the top but it takes just as much work to stay up there and I forgot that part. All the things that I did to get to that point I stopped doing like working out, dressing up well, taking my girlfriend out on dates, communicate and continuing to build relationships with my friends who at the time were really good friends of mine and even my professors, they love me so they will pass me so I neglected my work ethic as well. Seven months later, I get a call from my girlfriend during spring break and she breaks up with me because I wasn't the same guy she started dating when we first started. So, now I am almost back to square one where I really had nothing. Now, I am mulling around what I am going to do...

Today’s Men Don’t Act Like Men


What's happened to today's man? Why are women so frustrated with today's sensitive guys? Why is it that when a man takes a woman out on a date -- he can't even decide where to go for a cup of coffee? What is going on with men -- that women initiate most divorces? THE REASON: TODAY'S MEN DON'T ACT LIKE MEN. In these times, men need to learn to be men. Author of the Book "Being the Strong Man a Woman Wants" Elliot Katz has been interviewed about his book on more than 90 radio and TV shows in the Canada, US, the UK and Singapore.

THREE THINGS A MAN NEEDS TO BE:  He’s sensitive and tries hard to please the woman in his life, but when there's a problem that needs to be dealt with, he seems oblivious. When she asks for input on a decision, he says, "It's up to you." He wants to be nice but doesn’t understand why he’s frustrating her. He doesn't understand she wants a strong man. Elliott Katz understands why women today complain about the lack of quality men. "Today’s men have received so many confusing messages on what a man should be, they’re bewildered.” "To avoid accusations of being controlling, many men have gone to the other extreme and avoid showing leadership and making decisions. The irony is that while men think they’re being sensitive and non-controlling, the biggest complaint I hear from women is that men today don’t show leadership, they don’t make decisions and they won’t take responsibility,'" says Katz.

One of women’s biggest complaints is that men don’t show their share of leadership in the relationship. When a man sees a situation that needs to be dealt with, he should step forward and handle it. People admire those who step forward to handle difficult situations – and don’t wait for others to solve the problem. Make decisions
 to avoid accusations of being controlling, a lot of men have gone to the other extreme – they leave most decisions to their wives. A man needs to make his share of decisions and take responsibility for the outcome. To many women, a man who avoids decisions is shirking his responsibilities. One of the meanings of the word "manly" is being decisive. Take responsibility for improving the situation. Don’t blame others. There is little sympathy for a man who blames a woman – even when he thinks she pushed him into it. People will say, "You’re the man. Why did you let it go on?" One of the meanings of the word "husband" is someone who skillfully manages his household. Managers take responsibility. "Divorced women have said that if their husbands had understood these crucial truths, their marriages would not have disintegrated," Katz says. Women give the book to men and say, “This is what I have been trying to tell you all this time.” The most common question Katz receives from women is: “How do I get him to read it?” BEING THE STRONG MAN A WOMAN WANTS is available at and bookstores.
