Hello out there! Im back to blogging....





June 2010





I have been gone for a while so much has gone on this year. I took a long blog break. I can't believe this year is almost over when I just took my new years vows to blog once a month. LOL! I have'nt even come close to fulfilling that vow or any of my New year's resolutions for that matter. I know ...this upcoming New Year I won't proclaim any New Years Resolutions and I will probably do alot better.

Any way. I' ll start from my last blog. In June Marcella Ellis Signature Products was a sponsor in the black film festival in Miami. I got a chance to hob knob with so many celebrities in the VIP parties and events. It's funny the only person I really remember was Idris Elba! I partied with him all night at the BET opening night it was love at first sight... my future husband.. Only he does'nt know it yet. LOL!






This is what you look like when you have one, two many drinks.. Try to look sober! Ha!

Any way I had a sewn in weave with loose wavy Indian hair. Underneath my hair is growing and getting much stronger. My reveal date will be December the 9th, My 39th birthday!



Fast forward>>>>>>>

For these few months we have been very busy servicing our clients, training students and shipping products. Our clients have been extremely pleased with our Healthy Hair Care System. We have been focusing on less chemicals and more vitamins and protein. The results have been phenomenal. I recommend for those of you who can not visit our salon to purchase our soy protein shampoo and soy protein conditioner. You may call in and place your order. Our signature line of Virgin Remy Indian Hair is a "HIT" as well. We sell out of hair every week! Call in fast to place your order. We have Wavy, Curly and Straight......

It's JUNE already!

Hello All,

I know don't tell me, I'm late with my blog AGAIN!!
Please Forgive ME....

First of all I want to say thank you to all of our clients for patronizing our business it has been extremely busy. Who KNEW????? May was a very busy month. We offer our apologies for any time inconvenience that may have occurred during this heavy influx of traffic. We look forward to providing you all with our award winning services and appreciate your business.

I just want to update you all on our Healthy Hair Progress. We have had continued success. A few of my clients that immediately come to mind have seen phenomenal results. One in particular is a doctor that has been a client of ours since 2008. Recently we removed her weave to give her a new one, and discovered a tremendous amount of growth. She has been on our Healthy Hair Care System for at least a year and a half and we have noticed the condition of her hair is in excellent shape. She has at least 3 inches of growth since we first started and her hair is thick and strong. We just discussed removing her weave for good the next go around. Congratulations Ms. J, you know who you are!
I have continued my research trying to get to the bottom of what is really going on with the health of our hair.
Here is what I have discovered. The MD, DC and VA water has a high level of water hardness which is calcium carbonate and magnesium. You may notice slight spotting on your dishes when using your dish washer or residue in your shower. It also tested high with unsafe levels of toxic by- products of the chemicals (chloramine)used to purify the Potomac river water at levels above annual federal health limits. Now what does this mean? Well because this is a hair care blog we'll stick to hair but just think of what this is doing to our bodies. We use the water to cook, brush our teeth, wash our bodies including hair, our clothes, dishes, pets etc..... "I think the water has something to do with so many unknown streams of cancer." Just my opinion. Water Hardness and Chloramine levels differ from city to city and state to state. Please do your research on your hometown. I have noticed so many women in this area experiencing balding and thinning at very young ages.
Here are the facts:

To combat these pollutants, chemicals and hard water minerals, we have devised a plan of action. I don't want to advise you women to practice this at home because each head of hair is very different and should be first analyzed by a professional.
Our Clarifying shampoo is an all natural mixture only done in our salon not available for sale but coming soon:
* Removes build up of minerals and oxidizers that can cause adverse affects on the hair
* Prevents dryness caused by calcium, magnesium and chlorine
* Restores shine, moisture and manageability to the hair
* Removes discoloration caused by iron and copper
* Unclog calcium from the hair follicle which can cause dry flaky, scalp tissue and coats the scalp causing the hair to never grow again
* Help prevent further build up of minerals and oxidizers
* Ensures the proper processing of colors, perms and relaxers

If you decide to clarify at home please do it no more than once maybe twice a month. Clarifying can also strip the hair of moisture so be sure to deep, deep condition.

I am really on a mission to promote healthy hair care so please continue to follow my blog as I reveal more healthy hair care information.......
Talk to you SOON!

March Madness!!






















Classes start March 8th at our new Training Center..

Television Show "Marcella Ellis Glam Review" DCTV March begins shooting....

March 20th the first day of SPRING!!!



Hello all! March is here and it is time for me to update you all on a few things. I didn't write in the month of February but I am going to get better. I am going to try to blog once a month, at the beginning of each month that is...


Well I am happy to say during the snow storm I lost an extra 15 pounds. Mostly sleeping and not exerting a lot of energy. I wasn't eating very much could have been stress but anyway... its off. BYE BYE!! My friends say its not good to loose weight that way by not eating, that's probably true. However, I am just glad to have lost it by any means necessary. Now the trick is trying to keep it off. Plenty off Exercise!!! Dieting plays a big part in the health of our hair as well. I was not consuming many calories while I was home during the storm because I wasn't eating much. I tried to supplement my nutrition intake by taking one a day. I have also increased my protein intake by taking those new protein shakes by special k which they say controls your appetite as well..

I had Lisa my assistant put a weave in my hair. We got a new shipment of raw Indian, Virgin, Human, Remy hair in stock, and we are loving it. It is soft, and does not tangle at all. I jumped in the shower and washed my hair again last week, and I had this body wavy look going on. I thought I was Pocahontas.... This is the longest I have ever worn a weave. I have actually had it in since January and it is now March...

As far as health care, I have been experimenting lately in the salon, mixing protein in jars making different compositions of conditioners. Some of my new clients as well as old clients have been experiencing extreme dry and brittle hair. I contribute the dry season as well as the hard water we have running through our faucets throughout the metro area to this problem. I have been studying different natural ingredients that add luster and moisture to the hair both internally and externally. I bought gel Vitamin E tablets and have started cutting open the capsule and squeezing out the highly concentrated Vitamin E in the tablets to lubricate the scalp. My grandmother was always a fan of Vitamin E, she would use the extract on her skin as well as consume the tablets. Maybe that's one of the reason she looks so young even to this day at the age of 89. My grandmother was also a big fan of the aloe Vera cactus. I'm still studying the benefits of this tropical plant and how it can be used in our healthy hair care regimen. I have mixed a few of my favorite protein conditioners in one big jar and added carrot oil, olive oil, and Shea butter. We have been using this as our protein packs. For our moisturizing packs and hot oil soaks I have been using a few of my favorite combination conditioners and added Vitamin E to the mix. Stay tuned...I will fill you in next month with the results....

IT'S 2010!!! .....I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU

As this new year begins to unfold and a rough year has now come to pass, I just want to take this time to say THANK YOU! January is a month of newness an indication of all things hopeful. New Year's resolutions are put in place, new ideas are formulated, there is a sense of hope for the remaining days to come. AS I look back in retrospect and realize that through it all I have so many reasons to be thankful. I want to first say Thank You to my Lord and Savior for seeing me through this past year with so many blessings I can't even name. I have learned to appreciate many small wonders, obstacles that I overcame in which I knew I had no control. I challenge you all to do the same. We look at our lives and continue to want more but never really being thankful for what we have. I secondly want to say thank you to my family and friends who have been there for me when I needed them most. We have cried together, laughed together and provided comfort to one another through the good times and bad. I want to lastly say thank you to my clients both new and old. I have bonded with so many of you sharing our similar stories about our obstacles and triumphs. It has been a pleasure serving you all in 2009 and will be a pleasure serving you for years to come.

I haven't been blogging lately because I have been extremely busy servicing my clients as well as working on opening my new schools. I am happy to say my company has just opened two new Advanced Training Centers in Alexandria VA and Los Angeles California. It fills my heart with gladness to see this dream come to fruition. We are now enrolling students that have an interest in excelling in specific industry skills. If you know someone that would like to enroll in continued education advanced courses please refer them to our new website
