Our Roots

Our story began in 1979 when scientist, cosmetologist, and inventor of the modern-day conditioner, Jheri Redding, discovered that hair becomes healthier and stronger when treated with protein.

Our Science

Nexxus believes in the power of protein science to bring life back to hair. Since hair is made up of more than 90% protein, it can become depleted of essential proteins due to external aggressors like styling, coloring, and other hair treatments. Our world-class team is dedicated to applying our knowledge of proteomics--the molecular study of proteins--to understand which proteins your hair needs to look and feel its best.
