Intact Hair is a root securing complex that works to prevent hair fall out when it is applied directly to the scalp and massaged in as a pre-treatment to any hair processing and/or styling. Ultimately, you rinse it out so it’s not meant as a permanent treatment. So, if you’re going to wash your hair, just applied Intact Hair to your scalp 10 minutes before you start washing your hair. The PiliLock Complex in Intact Hair temporarily reinforces the hair matrix to help reduce hair fall out. It works during most hair styling and processing that involves pulling, manipulation, coloring, cutting, blow-drying, hot tools styling and even exertion installation and removal.
