Wednesday To Poo or Not to Poo

http://Brini.TV ► Ask Brini Maxwell anything at ►

This week we have a question from Sparkle Neely, in Oakland, CA. 

She writes: 

"Brini, what do you think of this "no poo" trend, as in "no shampoo"? I want luxurious locks, but is this wise? "They" say to use baking powder & vinegar instead,but I'm worried that I'll have greasy hair & smell like a giant Arm & Hammer salad. Help!"

Whether to poo or not to poo has a lot to do with your lifestyle. The theory is that the chemicals in commercial hair care products strip the natural oils from the hair and stimulate over-production of sebum by the scalp. Supposedly, if you stop using them, your hair will be greasy for a week or so, then return to normal. Whether this works or not is debatable, but the decision to cut the poo should really be based on your lifestyle, not to mention your hairstyle. This choice is really for people who favor the natural look. It's not a great choice for people who like elaborate hair styles. Should you decide to go the no poo route, you can mitigate greasy locks while your body gets used to the new regime by combing corn starch through your hair. It will absorb the excess oil and make your hair more manageable.

Why didn't you think of that?

Described as part Donna Reed, part Mary Tyler Moore, Maxwell makes kitsch feel classy through her unparalleled personal flair for home design, entertaining and savvy household tips. Inspired by a divine thrift shop purchase of 1950's nesting bowls, she first began sharing her vintage/classic know-how with other Manhattanites in 1998 through her self-titled cable access television show. With an emphasis on uncompromising fabulousness, Brini quickly garnered a devoted fan base and established herself as the go-to-girl on vintage fashion and mid-century modern treasures. After five years on the local airwaves her show was picked up by the Style Network. The subsequent series has been called a delightful success and has attracted a diverse audience thorough its national platform.

The Brini Maxwell Show

The pilot for the original show was produced in 1996. The show debuted on Manhattan Neighborhood Network on January 1, 1998, and aired for 5 years featuring tips, recipes, entertaining ideas, craft projects, home renovation and interior design schemes. It was produced by Sander's production company V.R.U.S.P. Inc. and directed by Sander's mother, Mary Jane Wells.

In 2001 Sander was contacted by Amy Briamonte, east coast director of development for west coast based Termite Art Productions (now Creative Differences Productions). Briamonte and Sander developed a pitch for the show for the Bravo network and received an order for a pilot. The pilot was produced in the summer of 2002 for a show titled Charming, Needs Work. The premise for the show was Maxwell lived in an apartment that she redecorated every week. After Bravo passed on the show Briamonte, Sander and Termite Art pitched it to Stephen Schwartz and Heather Moran, newly named VP's of programming for the Style network. The pitch resulted in an order for a 13-episode season.

The first season of The Brini Maxwell Show for the Style network was taped in the summer of 2003 with studio production taking place on the main stage at Unitel Studios on west 57th St. in New York City. Location shoots for the season were taped over a period of 6 months in New York City, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
