Rima’s hair was falling out by handfuls and psoriasis was taking over her scalp. The BECOME Organic Salon and Marty came to the rescue. Marty explained the difference in the color she was using and the plant based extract color and how receiving more oxygen to the scalp could improve her condition. Her natural based color and signature scalp massage and laser treatment was the venue. With in one month there was a big difference. Rima says her hair is thicker and has more shine and body than it did in her 20s. Older people can enjoy good heath, more energy along with natural hair color and clear beautiful skin.
