Benefits of a Keratin Complex Treatment

Humidity to hair is like tears to mascara; it's the enemy! With the sweltering, humid, summer months approaching, it's important to know you have options to fight against the frizz!

Keratin is a smoothing, strengthening and conditioning treatment applied and absorbed to your hair. Timonacic acid, an organic preservative, supplies proteins for hair repair which results in stronger hair. Benzoquinone, another ingredient found in the keratin treatment, infuses deep into the cuticle for optimum conditioning. Depending on...

February Star Student of the Month: Sarah Heuser

Congratulations, Sarah! Sarah graduated from Rancocas Valley Regional High School in 2017.
