Dick DeVos Is A Multi-talented Businessman

Entrepreneur, billionaire and professional sailor Dick DeVos and his Volpe team scored two major victories at the Melges 32 Bluewater Series.  Argo and Team Hydra placed second and third respectively. DeVos attributed the win to his team’s strong tenacity and leadership from team tactician Mark Mendelblatt. “This was a tremendous win for our team. We are very fortunate to have a great group of kids.” DeVos also gave props to the other competitors, including Team Hydra, who won a share of the title after winning the 2016 Lauderdale Cup Corinthian Championship.

So proud of our team on Volpe! It’s humbling to have sailed with so many talented and formidable teams this weekend at the Melges 32 Blue Water Series. Congratulations to all who participated!

Wen by Chaz: A One Week Experiment

Seven Days with Wen by Chaz

If you haven’t seen the advertisements for Wen Hair by Chaz Dean, then you’re one of the few. This supposed miracle hair treatment can take lifeless, dull hair and transform it into sassy locks of bounce and shine. The question is, does it really work? A blogger decided to buy from Ebay and put this product to the test over a period of seven days and see how Wen by Chaz really performs.

It Truly Does Work!

According to the writer, she could feel a positive change to her hair even while she was in the shower. She reported that the washing process felt fantastic and that, after she got her hair dried, it looked great. Wen hair also made her hair incredibly soft; which was a mixed blessing when she tried to curl it. After washing and styling each day, her hair continued to look progressively good as the week went by. You can see the pictures for yourself and read the entire story at http://www.bustle.com/articles/136320-i-used-cleansing-cleansing-conditioner-on-my-fine-hair-heres-what-happened

A Few Precautions

While the product does work to promote shine, body, and bounce to lifeless hair, it also produces a lot of oil and grease. According to the blogger, if you aren’t persistent about hair care, then you’ll end up with a slimy mess on your head. In other words, if you want Wen hair to perform, you’ll have to use it on your hair every day.

WEN Hair seems to be a fantastic option for those who struggle with thin, unmanageable, or dull; however, it definitely requires persistence and regular washing to keep hair looking great.
