How to Maintain Healthy Hair

hair. If you must use heating tools like hairdryers, flat irons and curling
rods, be sure to pre-treat your hair with our Smoothing Hair Crème.

elasticity, aiding against breakage. This treatment also helps to create a
barrier to protect your hair from the damages that are caused by heat and the
