Tom Magliaro’s Hair Additions of Houston, Texas, a third generation corporation, began in 1971 with Tom’s father-in-law, a pioneer in the hair replacement industry in Texas. Under Tom’s reign, just a few years later, the business grew, as did his reputation nationwide for his high standards for the finest, most natural-looking hair products, his keen attention to the service needs of his clients, and his fair and empathetic business practices. He has established himself as the benchmark for other similar businesses to emulate.
Now, forty years later, Tom’s daughter, Victoria Magliaro Welker, is leading their company in a new, yet related direction. After she graduated from the University of Texas, Tom had not expected her to follow him into the family business. He had actually discouraged it, wanting her to gain experience in the world outside of the comfort of her family, and to find a path that would lead her to her own passion in life.
Victoria disagreed with his position. “I always wanted to work for my dad,” she says. “So I asked him, ‘why shouldn’t I learn from the best?’” She won the argument, and Tom has no regrets about the decision.
With his support, Victoria is promoting their new line of wet good products, Welker rePHreshed ™ , a line of shampoos, conditioners, and styling products that has shown to rejuvenate and refresh everyone’s hair. She is truly passionate about this new endeavor. “My hair has never been so shiny, so silky, so manageable, “Victoria says, with glee. “It feels healthy and beautiful. It’s the best product I’ve ever used.” And everyone who has tried it agrees --- thumbs up! And not to leave dad out, Victoria and staff members designed their logo with a W that can as easily be viewed as an M with just a slight tilt of the bottle!
Why is our product line so unique--- About 95% of commercial shampoos contain sulfate or alcohol which causes the hair to be dry and brittle; thus, you have hair breakage. The sulfate is used to cause shampoo to foam only. We offer many products that are sulfate- free (sodium lauryl sulfate) and alcohol-free. Sulfate-free products are less irritating to the eyes and skin. Additionally, we offer some products that are Paraben-free. Paraben causes wax build-up.
Our fortified protein conditioners hydrate and soften dry and chemically-treated hair in just sixty seconds. Most deep conditioners need to be left on for fifteen minutes. Structurizing proteins of differing molecular weights penetrate deep within the hair shaft producing benefits like no singular protein can.
Our products use natural extracts from various plants, some of which are aloe, chamomile, witch hazel, green tea, and sage leaf. Many have UV protectants and vitamins. Our styling products do not leave sticky residue or build-up because they are water soluble. And specific styling aids are more resistant to humidity, which is a huge benefit to those living in hot or humid climates. But don’t take our word for it. We know once you try our shampoos, conditioners, and styling products, you, too, will feel rePHreshed ™ !
