Halo Effect: Grow & Protect Your Edges and Nape

The edges and nape of a woman’s hair can be the most troublesome.  They are often much shorter than the overall length of the person’s hair.   Let’s say you’ve developed a regimen that seems to be working beautifully, your hair is growing nice and strong, thick and healthy, and you’ve been able to retain length.    But when you comb your hair up into a ponytail, the hair in the back never quite reaches the holder and falls down or...

Confessions… (And Recovery) of a Product Junkie
