“WASH YOUR HAIR WITH PALMOLIVE,” THEY SAID. “IT’LL BE GREAT,” THEY SAID.

This weekend I got a glimpse into the world of luxury salon extensions. I was on assignment for Racked, covering the Mane Addicts Mane University class founded by Kim Kardashian’s stylist, Jen Atkin.

Clarifying shampoos work harder than regular shampoos and are necessary when you have severe build-up of products, dirt, pollutants, or minerals from hard water.
