Getting gray, silver, or white hair is a natural part of growing older, and here's why. The root of every strand of hair is surrounded by a tube of tissue under the skin, the follicle. Each hair follicle contains a certain number of pigment cells. These pigment cells continuously produce a chemical called melanin, which gives the growing shaft of hair its color of brown, blonde, red, and anything in between. As we get older, the pigment cells in our hair follicles gradually die. When there are fewer pigment cells in a hair follicle, that strand of hair will no longer contain as much melanin and will become a more stransparent color - like gray, silver, or white - as it grows. How early we get gray hair is determined by our genes.

Did you know that your hair and nails are made of 98% protein? In Order to have the building blocks for strong hair and nails, we need plenty of protein in our daily food intake. Protein is made up of amino acids, which are required for the growth and maintenance of our body tissue. In addition to hair and nails, protein is a primary component of our muscles, eyes, and internal organs, especially the heart muscles and brain.

I started using a variety of these amazing shampoo's and conditioners.
Pureology is so effective because every product from this line is made from atoms and molecules that enables ingredients to more easily penetrate the hair shaft to deliver health, vitality,and vibrancy. Nano technology assists formulas to instinctively target where repair is needed while moisturizing, conditioning, reducing drying time, and offering both thermal and colour pretection. Hair stays healthier, stronger and shinier than ever before possible.
