Tip 2: Switch to Clean Haircare
'Clean' beauty products have been ALL the rave recently. We've heard about it, you've heard about it, but are they really worth the hype? Dry damaged hair starts with what you are washing with. Switching to a clean haircare brand free of sulfates, parabens & fragrance is the first step to a healthier scalp and hair. If you are noticing your hair looking all blah, think about what you are washing with. You'd be surprised how many shampoos out there create brittle and dull hair strands over time. Nourished and healthy hair is the goal.
