London – January 17, 2013 – Flat and lifeless hair should be a thing of the past thanks to the launch today of Swell, a new breakthrough natural hair care brand that brings real volume to fine, limp or thinning hair. Swell’s three-step system of Advanced Volumizing Shampoo, Advanced Volumizing Conditioner and Root Nutrient Complex Spray is like a beauty and health treatment for hair that lacks volume. The products are now available for purchase via Swell’s Online Shop.

Swell is different to other hair care brands because it wants to be guided by consumers and has set up the Swell VIP community on Facebook to receive advice on a regular basis. Swell VIP has gathered over 2,000 members already and the first 500 were given the opportunity to try the products and provide feedback before launch. Since then VIP members have been actively engaging with Swell, providing invaluable feedback and sharing their thoughts about the range – including new product development.

Swell. No compromises – Natural BUT very effective
Swell, the brainchild of a homeopath, Jonathan Stallick and a hairstylist to the stars, Andrew Bidwell, is a breakthrough brand in the hair sector because it works on both the hair and the follicles that create hair. Swell delivers immediate volume, improved hair growth and less fall out. Swell’s root nutrient complex, a blend of 18 natural ingredients, creates stronger, thicker and healthier hair with a natural shine.

Swell uses a minimum 97% naturally sourced ingredients, without silicones, parabens or other chemical nasties, delivering glamour with goodness.


The three products in the Swell range are:

1) Advanced Volumizing Shampoo (250 ml) at £23 – The shampoo has an elegant champagne colour and a delicious signature aroma from pure essential oils. It is double concentrated – making it very economical - and each bottle should last between one and two months depending on the amount of hair. Its powerful and colour-safe treatment leaves the hair squeaky clean and starts the volumizing and conditioning process.

2) Advanced Volumizing Conditioner (250ml) at £26 - The conditioner is nourishing, leaves no residue (no silicones in Swell) and delivers intense moisturising superior volume and a luxuriant gloss. Its natural ingredients include anti-static and detangling agents to increase combability and blow dries that hold.

3) Root Nutrient Complex Spray (100ml) at £30 – This is the vital third Step: a unique blend of eighteen active botanical extracts that creates superior volume all day long. The root spray feeds the roots to produce healthier, stronger hair. The root spray also assists styling, volume and hold between washes.

Each product is fitted with an easy to use pump applicator to deliver exactly the right amount of product for each hair type. This makes the products very economical and the effects tailored to each individual. Unlike other brands that encourage people to use more of the product to drive sales, Swell provides clear instructions to help consumers use just the right amount to deliver beautiful and healthy hair with genuine volume.

Special VIP benefits
Every month Swell will be giving its Swell VIPs the special inside track on what Swell is planning and will update them about how their advice is shaping what Swell will do next. All VIPs will also have an exclusive access to promotions, experiences, information and prizes. The January promotion (ending 31st January) includes a special VIP discount code to buy the products from the Swell online shop . All orders over £45 are post and packing free. With this discount the shampoo is only £14.95 (normally £23); conditioner £16.90 (normally £26) and the root nutrient spray £19.50 (normally £30). There is no limit to the number of times this code can be used or to the amount of product that can be purchased.

Brilliant! Like a blow dry in a bottle!
Swell VIP members, who had the chance to sample Swell before the rest of the world are already loving the products and recognising the benefits of using Swell treatment – such as additional volume and hold, instant detangling, long lasting effects or a perfect blow dry. “Brilliant! Like a blow dry in a bottle!” said Lauren Amy.

Mary Ellis, another VIP member said: “First thing the smell - divine! Secondly the conditioner, I usually have to use loads as I have curly/frizzy hair, such a small amount, and combed through my hair easily. My hair, looks, feels and smells fab and lasts longer. I don’t need to wash and style my hair again the next day which is amazing. Can’t recommend enough, looking forward to seeing how my hair is after using for a while. It really is SWELL!”

It’s also proving ideal for active sports people according to Joyce Martindale, who said: “I’ve found the Swell range really great – especially after sport. I used it several days after wearing a cycling helmet all day so its coped with hair that’s been a) wet and dried in a tangle in the wind, and b) sweaty then dried hard in the wind and sun. Normally either of those two scenarios means that however much conditioner I apply it is exceedingly painful and tedious to try and gently comb the knots out of my hair afterwards, especially the hair at the nape of my neck. The Swell products were astonishing as this whole combing process was quick and pain free – not to mention significantly less hair got pulled out and left on the comb. And my hair looked fabulous without me having to do anything to it. Result!”

“Since we launched our Swell VIP community on Facebook we’ve been overwhelmed by the positive response from its members, said Jonathan Stallick, Swell co-founder and professional homeopath. “Women love the fact that Swell is natural but above all that it is very effective. With Swell they can enjoy immediate volume and stronger, healthier hair with the peace of mind that comes with using a genuinely natural product. And, from our trials of the Swell system, we know that the longer customers use Swell, the better the results.”

Andrew Bidwell, co-founder and celebrity hair stylist said: “I’ve been testing the Swell products on some of my clients over the last eight months and I can safely say I have never seen such effective products in all my years as a stylist. I’m delighted as much by the psychological lift Swell has given people who have used it as much as I am by the health and volume it has added to their hair.”

Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy.
Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions. Unfortunately, too many companies fall short in achieving their business goals by implementing incomplete solutions or not focusing on tangible use cases. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...
Businesses and business units of all sizes can benefit from cloud computing, but many don't want the cost, performance and security concerns of public cloud nor the complexity of building their own private clouds. Today, some cloud vendors are using artificial intelligence (AI) to simplify cloud deployment and management. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ajay Gulati, Co-founder and CEO of ZeroStack, will discuss how AI can simplify cloud operations. He will cover the following topics: why clou...
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
