Don't be fooled by the illusion that pampering your hair with scientifically formulated ingredients and a modern array of elements beautifies it. While they may make you feel better, they won't do much for your tresses.
Chemical foaming and cleansing agents are really nothing but lather and originate from chemicals called "surfactants" under the names of "lauryl sulphate" and "laureth sulphate". Unfortunately they can strip the hair of its natural oils.
Break that bad-hair-day cycle. Without your natural oils your hair may be bouncier but the hair soon dries and breaks. The ends split and the hair frizzes. This is usually followed by dry itchy scalp. Now you have a dermatological problem along with a bad-hair-day problem. Even worse problems can develop. Small tears can occur in irritated skin, inflamed skin itches and scratching can lead to infections.
The good news is that instead of harsh cleansers, natural botanically based shampoos combine various plant based surfactants. Natural, gentle shampoos and conditioners also help prevent hair thinning. Women as well as men can experience thin hair that falls out. Jason has developed their Thin-to-Thick hair products to assist people with thinning hair.
Jason Thin-to-Thick Hair Thickening Shampoo is designed to add at least 10% fullness to the hair (usually after the first application), while it gently and thoroughly cleanses the hair and purifies the scalp as well.
Jason Thin-to-Thick Hair Thickening Conditioner provides the hair and scalp with precisely the type of complete nutritional, environmental and UV protection you need. It reinforces and strengthens weak hair by infusing amino acids into the cortex.
