Why buy salon products?

We get asked all the time, why use salon products instead of supermarket products?

 

IN SALON TREATMENT BASED PRODUCTS

Help's to keep the hair and scalp healthy. Salon products will help re build hair that is in poor condition, chemically processed, weak, Brittle or frizzy. Salon products will help with volume or smoothness of the hair.  Long term use of salon products will keep healthy maintenance, shine and a clear healthy scalp.

Healthy scalp means healthy hair.

When we wash our hair we must concentrate on washing the scalp. Cleaning the hair follicle stimulates the growth and healthy hair. 

Treatment based products work gently so they don't destroy the hair in the process.

Our hair is made up of two types, moisture and protein. Depending on the hair type we may need more of one than the other. Moisture smooths the hair and protein strengthens.

Over a period of time with heat and chemical damage our hair will result in tiny little holes which appear in the cuticle. Salon products work internally within the hair,  first to rebuild the structure like polyfiller. Working from the inside out.

Once these holes have been restructured the shine will come naturally.

This will not happen instantly, it is a process of getting the right product from your consultation with your hairdresser. Even with a salon treatment range if you do not have the right product for your hair type,  it will not work.

Would you self prescribe for your own health.? So why would you self prescribe for your hair or skin?

 

COSMETIC BASED

These are not always bad depending on the result you want ? And the time scale you which you would  use one of these products for. This is like putting your make up on, instant results, instant shine, instant hold.

This Generally comes with a product that would be full of silicone which would give your hair the instant shine and then builds up and eventually coats the hair till it becomes greasy and lank.

Instant hold products resulting in high alcohol content, this then aids colours to fade and makes the hair become more brittle.

My good example of this would be if you have a tiny cut on your hand and you spill alcohol on it, you will feel it sting, so imagine having a colour on your hair that will open the cuticle and then applying a hair spray onto the hair with a high alcohol content this will help to strip and fade colour over a period of time.
