THE KITCHEN SERIES: RECIPES FOR HEALTHY HAIR. CHICKEN AND VEGETABLE SOUP

Here at Octavio Hair HQ, we believe that healthy hair is not only a result of what you put in your hair, but what you put in your body. One of the main issues a lot of people have with healthy cooking is the fact that it can be a lot messier than opening up a box of crackers or microwaving a TV dinner. We believe in the benefits of clean eating so much that we have created a series that eliminates the mess and stress of creating flavorful dishes that benefit your body and satisfy your taste buds. So we present the Kitchen Series, a group of blog posts with recipes to give you the hair of your dreams. We picked out the best ingredients filled with the vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that will have you glowing from the inside out.
