Summer will be here before you know it! As the warmer months hit, you’ll want to get your clients hair in shape, fast! To get them ready for hat hair and extra UV rays, educate them on how to achieve a sultry style in a snap. How to step things up a notch? All too often, we blame our strands for a bad hair day when the real culprit could be our scalps. We overlook the need to care for them and this could be detrimental to not only our style but also our hair health. It is a secret no more, the best styles come from a healthy scalp and we’ll give you the tools to get there!
After a long winter of radiators, static, and probably overdoing the whole dry shampoo routine, scalps everywhere are screaming for a little TLC – and it is safe to say that your clients need of a detox. Biolage R.A.W. Scalp Care Anti-Dandruff Shampoo and Rebalance Conditioner are just what the stylist ordered!
First, determine whether clients have a dry scalp or if they are suffering from dandruff. The difference? Dry scalp is usually caused by weather, dry air, or irritation from the product you are using. Dandruff is caused by excess oil on your scalp. With excess oil, this builds up and then causes skin cells to clump together and cause flakes.
How to determine what you’re dealing with? Larger, white, off-white or yellow flakes are usually dandruff while smaller white or transparent flakes usually signal a dry scalp.
The problem often starts with clients being too comfortable with their routine. Each day it is the same thing – wash, rinse, and repeat. We rush our AM shower routine and then they are out the door to get to work. For most, the mornings are the only stimulation their scalp will receive all day. If workweeks are extremely rushed for your clients, talk to them about creating a routine for the weekend like “Self-Care Sunday’s”. Better yet, simply have them switch out their shampoo and conditioner and let the formula’s do the work for them.
Whether your client suffers from dandruff on the daily or simply needs a detox, the Biolage R.A.W. Scalp Care system will do the trick. With 2.9% active salicylic acid and willow bark, the shampoo will purify and calm the scalp by dissolving clumps that can lead to dandruff or dryness. Instruct them to follow this up with the Rebalance Conditioner to even out moisture levels of the scalp and strands. Used together, this system will remove impurities and restore moisture levels for a fresh, clean, oil- and flake-free feeling. For an extra treat, add Rebalance Scalp Oil into the mix. A pre-shampoo treatment, this oil can be incorporated into a scalp massage in the salon or at home!
The other great thing about this system is that they are formulated without silicones, parabens, and artificial colorants. They are also artificial fragrance-free, vegan and color safe! Checking plenty of boxes that most clients are looking for in their hair care routines these days.
Whether clients pick up this routine once a week or as the season's change, they’ll see a great change by simply adding a new shampoo and conditioner system in the shower!
