My hair dealt with damage, dryness, and breakage for years. No matter what products I tried, my hair always looked dull. It wasn’t until I discovered the 3 factors below while browsing TikTok and stumbled on the brand Prose (more info to come) that I started seeing results.
- Air conditioning
Extreme temperatures can cause damage to your hair, skin, and scalp, but did you know air conditioning can as well? Air conditioning units are made to remove moisture from the air while cooling it down. This can cause your scalp to lose moisture, often leading to dandruff and dry, frizzy hair.
- Chlorinated pools
Although it’s essential for killing bacteria, chlorine can strip your hair of natural oils, leaving hair weakened, dry, and damaged.
- Hard water in your shower
One of the biggest detriments to your hair is one you probably encounter most often – hard water. Hard water contains a buildup of minerals, such as calcium and magnesium, which create a film on your hair and make moisture difficult to penetrate. I live in Nevada, which happens to have water with an abnormally high mineral count. This, too, can unfortunately result in dry and dull hair.
Finally, a solution: Prose
Thankfully, I found Prose. I took a quick online consultation which asked me about my hair type, treatments, lifestyle, and hair goals. Then, my products were formulated based on all of the factors that could impact my hair health (even my zip code). My personal formulas were delivered to my door, with my name on the bottles!
I got the Prose Custom Leave-In Conditioner (I use this on a weekly basis), a Custom Pre-Shampoo Scalp Mask (makes my hair so smooth and silky), and my Custom Shampoo and Conditioner (I can’t live without these).
A huge plus for me is the brand is cruelty-free and doesn’t use sulfates, parabens, GMOs, or phthalates.
