No, I don’t think so. I think like anything that is built as a system, you may find it works better or ends up simplifying things, just because the brand has (hopefully) already determined how the components will work together. It takes a little more expertise to mix and match, I’d say, to ensure you’re getting the right stuff in each product without one canceling out the other or overpowering!  However, you could make sure you’re using exactly the right products for your hair type/concerns and nothing you don’t!

Bummed you can’t hear the washing machine that Mellan was getting excited over, but consider this “Attentive Mellan.”
