IN RECENT times, there has been a growing demand from consumers for brands to develop customised solutions for different hair types in order to attain beautifully nourished hair. 

Noticing this climate in the beauty industry, Dove as one of the world's leading personal care brands, has stepped up to launch its first advanced solutions customised range of hair conditioners featuring three new conditioners that cater to different hair types with unique levels of damage. 

The 1 Advanced Minute range consists of the Dove 1 Minute Foam Conditioner, Dove 1 Minute Milk Gel Conditioner, and Dove 1 Minute Serum Conditioner.

Based on a research done by Edelman Berland, most women want to feel empowered to wear their hair any way they want and 4 out of 5 women say their hair is part of their identity. However, about 90% of hair care products available are still designed and formulated for the same idealized idea of beautiful hair.

Speaking at the launch of Dove 1 Minute Advanced Conditioners, Dove Senior Brand Manager, Chloe Meng, said 

“We believe that providing a range of products that would cater to the needs of their different hair types will help women feel confident in themselves when it comes to their hairstyle and texture.  
We understand that in today’s era, the average woman leads a very fast-paced and hectic lifestyle thus it pushes us as a brand to continuously develop products that are innovative and effective in this time and age.”

Each of the hair conditioners have been formulated with a unique technology that caters to women that have fine and thin hair, to oily and severely damaged hair. These conditioners effectively transform and repair the hair making it beautifully soft, non-oily, and volumising in just under a minute.

The Dove 1 Minute Foam Conditioner has been designed with tiny bubbles of moisture which is a weightless repair that is best suited for thin and fine hair. The technology behind it makes the 1 Minute Foam Conditioner lighter than most conditioners available in the market. 

The Dove 1 Minute Milk Gel Conditioner is targeted for women with oily and damaged hair as it’s micro-conditioning complex ensures that the hair is not weighed down, oily or sticky. The Dove 1 Minute Serum Conditioner also provides the most concentrated level of micro-conditioning complex and moisturisation for women with thick hair who happen to have strands that are extremely coarse or have undergone extreme heat or coloring damage.

“These products are formulated with keratin repair actives, micro-conditioning complex and serum capsules that have the ability to make one’s hair silky while being deeply treated. 
We believe that hair conditioners should not be a ‘one-product-fits-all’ as different hair types require different care.“ said John Goh of R&D Deploy Manager Home & Personal Care for Dove Malaysia.

The new range of Dove 1 Minute Advanced Conditioners is now available at all Guardian and Watsons outlets. The Dove 1 Minute Foam Conditioner retails for RM21.20 while the Dove 1 Minute Milk Gel Conditioner retails for RM18.75 and the Dove 1 Minute Serum Conditioner retails at RM16.30.

Well into the second generation of a grand televangelist tradition, the renowned Gemstone family is living proof that worship pays dividends in all sizes, including their megachurch. Danny McBride stars as Jesse Gemstone, the eldest of three grown Gemstone offspring, who looks to lead in his father’s footsteps, but finds his past sins jeopardising the family ministry.

Also starring are Walton Goggins as Baby Billy, a former child star who clogged and sang for Jesus. As an aging man, he has fallen on hard times and comes to the Gemstones for salvation; Cassidy Freeman as Jesse’s wife, Amber, a former journalist now devoted to the church; Tony Cavalero  as ex-Satanist Keefe Chambers; Tim Baltz as Judy’s finance, BJ; and Greg Alan Williams as Martin Imari, Eli’s right-hand man.

THE RIGHTEOUS GEMSTONES marks the third HBO series for the Rough House Pictures team of McBride, Hill and Green, following Eastbound & Down and Vice Principals. McBride wrote and directed the pilot, with Green and Hill splitting directing duties on the other eight episodes. 

Green directed last year’s hit Halloween instalment, starring Jamie Lee Curtis, as well as 2017’s Stronger, starring Jake Gyllenhaal.

THE 80s are in full swing as the critically acclaimed drama series THE DEUCE brings its story to a close when it returns for its eight-episode, third and final season, same time as the U.S., on Tuesday 10 September at 9am, exclusively on HBO GO. 

Created by George Pelecanos and David Simon, the story resumes its chronicle of the rise of pornography and the multibillion-dollar industry’s transformation of American culture seven years after the culmination of the second season.

Season three of THE DEUCE brings us into the world of 1985, just as VHS overtakes film as the primary medium for porn production and distribution. The lure of the California sunshine, the city’s aggressive takeover of commercial sex properties in Times Square and the devastating impact of the AIDS epidemic mark the end of an era. 

With the party of the 1970s winding down, 42nd Street has deteriorated into a hive of uncontrolled violent crime and seedy video stores, making urban renewal seem more unlikely than ever before. Following the interconnected lives of Times Square’s barkeeps, prostitutes, pimps, police, mobsters, porn actors and producers, the eight-episode third season of THE DEUCE brings the series’ arc to a dramatic conclusion.

Created by George Pelecanos and David Simon, both veterans of the HBO series The Wire and Treme, THE DEUCE is executive produced by Pelecanos, Simon, Nina K. Noble and James Franco. 

The drama series stars James Franco (Golden Globe winner for The Disaster Artist) as both Vincent Martino – who, in season three, finds himself tired, wary and in search of a way out – and his twin Frankie Martino, a seemingly changed man, who is married with children and who continues to flirt with self-destruction; and Maggie Gyllenhaal (Golden Globe nominee for season one and Critic’s Choice nominee for season two of the series) as Candy, a director struggling to maintain her artistic integrity in an industry that is quickly devolving.

The returning cast also includes: Margarita Levieva (Revenge), as Abby, the proprietor of the Hi-Hat and an advocate for Times Square’s artists and denizens who begins to consider life after the Deuce; Emily Meade (HBO’s The Leftovers) as porn star Lori, now living in Los Angeles and battling addiction while absorbing the porn business’ migration to video-tape and the resulting degradation.

 Lawrence Gilliard, Jr. (HBO’s The Wire) as Chris Alston, now detailed to the Midtown Enforcement Project and partnered with Gene Goldman (Luke Kirby) to realize the city’s plan to rehabilitate Midtown; Chris Bauer (HBO’s The Wire), as French Parlor manager Bobby, who steadily begins to lose his piece of the lucrative Times Square sex trade; Chris Coy (CINEMAX’s Banshee) as gay businessman and entrepreneur Paul, who must confront the AIDS epidemic; Michael Rispoli (HBO’s The Sopranos) as mob capo Rudy, who leans on the Martino brothers for greater profit amidst infighting.

Season three finds familiar faces who return this season as cast regulars including, David Krumholtz (HBO’s upcoming miniseries The Plot Against America) as veteran pornographer Harvey; Daniel Sauli (House of Cards) as Tommy Longo, who’s angling for his own position amidst the Gambino family; Olivia Luccardi (Channel Zero) as Melissa, now an amateur porn actress forced to confront her past and Sepideh Moafi (Falling Water) as Loretta, a bartender at the Hi-Hat, involved in the feminist anti-porn movement. 

Guests include: Zoe Kazan (HBO’s upcoming miniseries The Plot Against America), Mustafa Shakir (Cinemax’s Jett), Roberta Colindrez (I Love Dick), Kim Director (She’s Gotta Have It), Corey Stoll (House of Cards), Aaron Dean Eisenberg (Public Morals), Michael Gandolfini (Ocean’s Eight) and Ralph Macchio (The Karate Kid).

Season three writers include: David Simon, George Pelecanos, Carl Capotorto, Iturri Sosa, Will Ralston, Chris Yakaitis and Stephani DeLuca.

With the newly dominant VHS format shaking up their industry, Candy (Maggie Gyllenhaal) and Harvey (David Krumholtz) travel to Las Vegas for an adult film convention where they disagree on how to navigate a fast-changing future. 

Fresh out of rehab in Los Angeles, Lori (Emily Meade) is put back to work. Alston (Lawrence Gilliard) makes a very specific request of Goldman (Luke Kirby) in their quest to revitalize Midtown.

Being educated in a Chinese School – Foon Yew High School, Johor Bahru for more than ten years, she is fluent in Mandarin although her mother tongue is the Malay language, giving her the advantage to express her creativity in the process of writing Mandarin songs.

In addition, Maizurah names Penny Tai as one of her favorite idols in the Chinese music industry and coincidently Penny Tai was also her school alumni and she is very proud of her successful music career. Being her idol, Maizurah would love to follow Penny Tai’s footsteps and develop her musical journey in China.

Maizurah is looking forward to collaborate with a record label and making her dream comes true by producing a full Mandarin album in the future.
