Programmed to seek instant gratification; during this time of social distancing many clients feel the need to turn to products like box dye. Salon professionals know the grave impact quick-fix solutions like this can have on a client’s hair, which is why it is especially important to address the topic of caring for your colour at home. From root cover-up spray to toning shampoo and simple style tricks - there are plenty of ways to extend the life of your colour.
Grey hair solutions
It can be unnerving for clients when grey hairs start to peek out. The first step to getting through it is to accept it; there should be no shame about the natural colour of their hair. Next, remind them that using an at-home box colour will not solve their problems, and only make it much harder to correct once they do return to the salon. Instead, urge them to pick up RETOUCH.ME – a root touch-up spray to cover up greys without damaging their hair. With four shades – BLACK, DARK.BROWN, LIGHT.BROWN, and AUBURN – a quick spritz will deposit micro-fine pigments that quickly and discreetly conceal greys without flakiness or residue.
Highlighted and colour-treated hair
Highlights, lowlights, balayage or babylights - chances are your clients are going to be dealing with colour fade out right about now. While a pH.D process would be perfect to reverse brassy tones in the salon, COLOURING.ANGELS is a solution your clients can use at home. A colour -enhancing treatment that adds a specific hint or impeccable shine to any colour, it will condition strands as it refreshes tones.
