One of my favorite things about my job is that I get to see a product from start to finish. When I heard that Dr. Gross was developing a line of haircare products, I was kind of surprised. What does skincare have to do with good-looking hair?
Turns out, everything.
Dr. Gross regularly treats patients at his practice who are disappointed with the appearance of their hair as they age — it looks dull, limp, and lifeless, with damage, breakage, and texture concerns. Dr. Gross found in his research that the key to stronger, shinier, younger-looking hair is applying anti-aging ingredients to the scalp. As you age, your skin ages – and that means your scalp ages, affecting your hair. We all know to treat our skin to prevent signs of aging, but I’ve been ignoring my scalp! It makes sense: just like you would nourish the soil in your garden to produce healthier, more beautiful flowers, your scalp needs to be nourished for stronger, more lustrous hair. The Root Resilience Anti-Aging Scalp Serum is designed to do just that!
Packed with powerhouse ingredients like Adenosine, Procyanidin B2, Retinol, Saw Palmetto, the serum not only promotes healthy, beautiful hair growth, but works to prevent shedding! No, seriously, you read that right: shedding. I’ve had my share of anxiety attacks after seeing huge clumps of my hair come out while I shower, so this was something I really couldn’t wait to try. In fact, because I couldn’t wait to try it, I headed to the Root Resilience launch event yesterday at Salon AKS in New York City.
I have fine hair that I heatstyle regularly, so between that and my shedding issues, I don’t have the most cheerful of tresses. This is my flat, stubbornly straight hair before my blowout with Root Resilience Strengthening Shampoo, Nourishing Scalp Conditioner, and Anti-Aging Scalp Serum.
And this is after:
Sure, Yianni (my amazing stylist!) curled the ends, but let me tell you – not only did it look bigger and shinier after the initial blowout, it was crazy soft – and my curl is still going strong today! My hair notoriously doesn’t hold a curl, so color me impressed. The big thing, though? If I continue to use this serum, my hair can get fuller, denser, and stronger, which is definitely something I want! The tingle that you feel when it hits your scalp is pretty great, too. I can’t wait to get my hands on it when it comes out.
Good news? Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare’s Root Resilience Anti-Aging Scalp Serum is now available for pre-order! It’s available in July, but you can get your name on a list now. I’m on it, and you should be too — it’s bound to be our next big hit!
