We all know that great hair is an investment. If you’ve just spent a couple hundred dollars getting the most perfect cut and color from a great stylist, the last thing you want to do is skimp on hair care products. Professional products are the only way to go to keep your great look between appointments.
There is a difference between salon hair care products and drugstore products—a big difference. It’s something that stylists, beauty editors and other experts confirm. The price tag may be higher, but high quality hair care products are worth every penny. In fact, when you look closely, you’ll see that with top quality professional products, you’re actually getting a lot of bang for your buck. Here’s why: many low-cost products are diluted with water and added fillers like wax and animal fat. With salon products, a little goes a long way, and you’ll replace them less frequently.
Salon products are also just plain better for your hair. Most drugstore products contain harsh chemicals like sulfates. Sulfates are a cheap way to create the lather many of us expect when we shampoo, but they also dry hair out, removing important hair oils, and can damage color. Another important plus for salon shampoos is a balanced pH. Professional products are tested to ensure a very important neutral pH, while many drugstore products are alkaline and can damage the hair cuticle and fade color.
Salon products also tend to have more of the vitamins and proteins your hair really needs instead of tiny doses of the good stuff with a bunch of fillers. High quality products are important for everyone, but they’re absolutely necessary for color treated hair. Our clients know that great color is an investment and use our specially selected products to keep their color fresh and fabulous.
The other great thing about buying professional products from a trusted stylist is that he or she can help you pick the product that truly meets your needs. Our stylists know our clients (and their hair). They also know our terrific products and are always ready to make a great match. So many of us have aimlessly wandered the drugstore aisles trying to figure out what will work best for our hair, only to wind up buying exactly the wrong thing. Spending a little bit more and knowing that the product you choose is going to give you exactly the look you want is absolutely worth it.
