Hair In A Bottle – A Solution for Thinning Hair Types
Toronto, Ontario, Canada – YaYa Beauty has what it claims is the “Secret to the Stars” when it comes to dealing with
thinning hair. This secret is called “Boom Boom Hair” a product that is designed to thicken and add volume and the appearance of more
hair than actually exists.
The formula consists of organic protein filaments that are applied by shaking them onto the hair at the
scalp area where the hair is thinning. The filaments are then bonded to the hair by the application of a spray which helps them to
adhere to the natural hair. The product is available in 8 colors, and is completely natural and colorfast so that it will not run,
and will not stain skin, clothing or environmental fabrics. Boom Boom Hair removes readily with any shampoo.
The product is heralded as a safe option for thinning hair, or for people who want extra volume and
thickness in their hair. The product is also recommended to help camouflage new growth until you can get to the hairdresser’s for a
color touch-up. For more information you can check out the website at www.boomboomhair.com.

well-appreciated by consumers. We have received tremendous response for the same…[The product] delivers the same results as
semi-permanent hair color but is longer lasting and gentler.” Godrej Renew Powder Hair Color is considered more pleasant and
gentler than traditional semi-permanent colors or other Henna-based formulas because it doesn’t use ammonia or contain any heavy
