A Week Co-washing with Wen

The co-washing trend has been making its rounds through every beauty blog. Every stylist worth their weight has given the new solution to dry damaged hair a once over with often rather surprising results. Conditioner only washing or “co-washing” as it is being commonly called initially had more than a few stylists unsure if ditching their shampoo and washing with daily conditioner could really be the end all to frizziness and stringy hair.

Bustle blogger Emily McClure set out to answer that question herself by spending a week using Wen By Chaz.

Wen By Chaz, the popular conditioner cleanser found on the shelves of most major beauty suppliers and available online is the best selling co-washing product from famed celebrity stylist Chaz Dean.Originally only available to those lucky enough to schedule an appointment in his Hollywood studio, Wen By Chaz Dean ( became the best seller from the line of hair care products offered by the celebrity stylist.

Over the course of a week, Emily used the all natural conditioning cleanser every time she showered, substituting it for her regular shampoo. After a single wash, the beauty tip blogger and stylist found her hair was much softer and even had more shine. Initially unsure of when to use it, Emily found a little change was necessary to accommodate the new beauty routine and realized the product was best used in the morning. Within the seven days using Wen By Chaz, Emily noticed her hair was much softer and styled comparably rather easily. A few compliments from some friends not only boosted Emily’s confidence but her belief in the effectiveness of the conditioning cleanser as well.

After only one week of use, the stylist, blogger, and new believer found herself sold on Wen By Chaz. For more info, visit the brand’s Facebook page and twitter account.

OSI Group: Beyond the Meat We Hark Success

In 1907, Otto Kolschowsky immigrated to America from Germany not knowing he would be the founder of a successful meat market that would later transform into a global leader in food provision and a new age thinker for world food solutions. Starting with very little, just two years after arriving in America Otto Kolschowsky opened a small meat market in Oak Park, Illinois. As of 1928 his business expanded and grew in reputation allowing him to move his meat market to Maywood, Illinois there upon calling his market Otto & Sons.

In later years, Otto & Sons strove for bigger goals. In 1955 McDonald’s founder Ray Kroc sought out for the freshest meats available for his newly opened fast food business. From then on, Otto & Sons was no longer just a small town meat distributor and in fact is still the sole supplier of meat for the fast food giant as well as others including KFC, Subway, Papa John’s Pizza, and Pizza Hut.

As of 1973, Otto & Sons was a main provider for a rapidly growing McDonald’s and had to become conscious about efficiency, food storage, and transportation for large orders. The solution was opening their very first industrial meat plant where meat pressing and cryogenic food processing took place. Aside from distributing to McDonald’s, Otto & Sons still desired to cater to small businesses, local supermarkets and restaurants, so it formed a smaller meat distributor called Glenmark. In 2011, Glenmark became owned by Best Chicago Meat, another meat processor company.

From 1975 until today, Otto & Sons now resides under a new name- OSI Industries ( While still sharing the same vision Otto Kolschowsky once had, Sheldon Lavin now holds title of Chairman and CEO of OSI Industries.

Aiding the private company into a new era of prosperity, Lavin has not always been top dog. Starting in 1970 as Otto & Sons financial consultant and handler, Sheldon Lavin grew steadily more involved in the company until 1975 when the Otto Kolschowsky and his two sons retired. With time Lavin watched as partners retired and left the company until he held full control of the OSI Group.

Sheldon Lavin, now age 85, has ensured the success of OSI Industries since becoming CEO. Today their presence can be found not only in America with a main office located in Aurora, Illinois, but can also be seen in China, Europe, Brazil, Japan, South Africa, the Philippines, Australia and India. As of 2016 Forbes declared the privately held meat processing company number 58 in America’s largest private companies with a revenue of $6.1 billion and nearly 20,000 employees.

In the spirit of generosity and family business, Lavin is not just a run of the mill entrepreneur but also contributes his earnings to charities such as the Ronald McDonald House, Evans Scholarship Fund, and is a board member for the Goodman Theater, the Rush University Medical Center. Lavin is also the winner of the 2015 McGladrey Lifetime Achievement Award.

Desiree Perez Likely To Be At The Center Of Samsung And Tidal Negotiations


Claire Atkinson of the New York Post notes that several sources have indicated that Samsung has restarted negotiations with Jay Z to take over Tidal. The giant electronics company based in South Korea has previously worked with Jay Z. That is during the 2013 launch of Magna Carta Holy Grail. Jay Z also teamed up with the firm with Roc Nation’s launch of Rihana’s ANTI. Previously, the two companies have held on-and-off talks.


I.B. Bad, a Hits industry insider notes that Samsung may have cut a check to Kanye West for The Life of Pablo. A source preview to the talks explained to Atkinson that Samsung is re-engaging.

Google as well as Spotify have also shown interest in Tidal. According to Atkinson’s source, the two firms believe the premium service can boost their own digital music services. Spotify has talked about establishing an initiative, which could produce a tidal that is powered by Spotify. It is more of a partnership rather than an acquisition.


Going by the current situation, Tidal needs a new home. Initially, there were talks with Sprint and SoftBank that did not come into fruition. During its launch, Tidal was estimated to be worth $250 million. Presently, the amount has dropped. With Desiree Perez at the helm, it is more likely an exceptional deal will be struck if her reputation as a brilliant and tough negotiator is anything to go by.
