>> it didn't wreck your hair. >> so basically when you take a shower and you have humidity in the shower, it is a lining that protects your hair. you have your hair, protect in the shower. it is like, within of my favorite products. it is first product we ever came out with. it is nice and big so fit lots of hair. must have when you take your shore and you want your blow out to last longer. >> if i'm going to the gym, i go for maybe a 30 minute runnish, and then i get sweaty, funky but i still want to see my friends. you say we're using dry shampoo. >> yes, we are. >> they are putting it back. >> they are very on top of things. >> detox which is one of the best selling products as well as our shower cap. it is the perfect product to put in your hair, on your second day of your blow out or before you work out, it is great thing to spray in your hair. >> you just said it, before i work out.
