Synopsis: In this seriously funny comedy about the power of romantic destiny, Joel (Jim Carrey) is stunned to discover that his girlfriend Clementine (Kate Winslet) has had their tumultuous relationship erased from her mind. Out of desperation, he contacts the inventor of the process, Dr. Howard Mierzwiak (Tom Wilkinson), to get the same treatment. But as his memories of Clementine are extinguished one-by-one, he realizes how much he still loves her. Trying to save some shred of their past together from destruction, Joel leads the doctor and his crew (Kirsten Dunst, Mark Ruffalo and Elijah Wood) on a wild chase through the maze of his subconscious mind. It soon becomes clear that Joel just can't get Clementine out of his mind.

Prive Oxygenates: Laurent Dufourg, owner and creator of Privé Salon and Privé Formule Aux Herbes haircare products has styled some of the world’s most celebrated men and women for over 15 years. His salons in New York and Los Angeles, with a third location to be unveiled at the new W Hotel in Seoul Korea, offer the latest techniques in color, cutting, styling and haircare. The latest, Oxygenating Scalp and Hair Treatment, was created exclusively by Privé Salon.

Oxygenating the follicle of the hair enhances cell metabolism and regeneration, therefore strengthening the entire hair shaft to promote growth, reports DuFourg. Oxygen is also an anti-bacterial agent, ridding the scalp of any product or environmental residues that block natural cell rejuvenation. All hair types (and skin types) benefit from oxygen, which moisturizes and restores dry and chemically treated hair and normalizes oily hair.

This newest deep penetrating treatment, created by Brigitte Beasse of Privé Los Angeles, begins with a scalp massage, utilizing personalized essential oil blends created for each individual client, specific to his or her hair type and special needs. This first step of the treatment enhances blood circulation, thus preparing the scalp to receive and absorb the oxygen.

Oxygen is then administered to the scalp with a special machine, the Alchemy Oxygen Fountain, which generates 97% pure oxygen from a hand held spray devise, offering more precision in treating problem areas of the scalp. Privé Formule Aux Herbes Intensive Mask is then applied, followed by a second scalp massage and lymphatic drainage of the neck and nape areas, to initiate an internal cleanse that eliminates toxins. The process is complete with Privé Formule Aux Herbes Reparative Shampoo and Conditioner. This 45 minute treatment leaves the hair and scalp nourished and strengthened, resulting in luxurious shine, volume and texture. The entire process combines Privé Formule Aux Herbes Reparative Shampoo and Conditioner, Privé Formule Aux Herbes Intensive Mask, Essential Oils and OXYGEN.* Price is $70, not including blow out. Cost of blowouts begin at $50 depending on the length of the hair.

Laurent D’s clients include: Sharon Stone, Uma Thurman, Tea Leoni, Audrey Tautou, Gwyneth Paltrow, Diane Lane, David Duchovny, Jewel, and Adrian Brody to name a few. For more information about the Privé Formule Aux Herbes collection, please call 866-351-1193.
