Nourishing essentials to maintain ideal follicular conditions
Consider yourself a winner if your hair falls under the “normal” category, because that means your scalp conditions are stable, hair growth cycle is on track and tresses are generally healthy. But that’s no reason to rest on your laurels in the haircare department: Prevention is always better than cure. Keep locks strong and beautiful with rituals that nourish and pamper, including a deep cleanse at least once a week and a trusty supplement to maintain hair health from the inside-out.
