With so many companies claiming they create great hair products — who can you trust? Because I’ve dealt with the “hair struggle” since I was 10 years old (experimented with perms, hair straighteners, and bleach by age 11) I personally found that the only way to truly tell if a product produces results (for your hair) is to try it yourself–and that’s just the opportunity I was given by Formulate when they reached out and asked me to collaborate with them.

Hair Loss Dos and Don’ts
You know what sucks? Losing your hair. You know what makes it worse? That it happens slowly over time. Little by little, day by day, you’re forced to watch your hairline recede, knowing that someday it will be gone, and there’s nothing you can do about it. Or is there?

I’m the first to admit that I’m hesitant to join trends because I’ve fallen victim to being a Fashion Don’t more than I’ve ever been a fashion Do! But when the Silver or White hair trend came into play I totally jumped on it. (I think I was a little late to the game, to be honest)
Keratin helps battle frizzy hair–but there’s more, like the shine factor! But first, I’ll explain a few things so you know exactly what you’re getting yourself into.
