what are “diverted products”?

Diversion is an on going issue in the salon industry. Walgreens, Target, even Kroger all have a shelf or two of your favorite products that you can purchase in the salon. Now it might seem like you are getting it cheaper, but you are fooled. Professional hair care companies are constantly are formulating and re-packaging products to keep new and current. The new products are retailed through the salon, while the old products literally get sold out the back door. It is the old products that you see in the drug and grocery stores, and they are sold by a third party with no ties to the beauty industry. Diversion costs our industry billions of dollars every year, and compromises billions of clients hair quality.

how often should i wash my hair?

The age old question! Is washing my hair everyday bad? Well depending on your hair type and how much of it is professionally coloured….YES! Technology has reached a level that far surpasses anything we have had before! Hair Shampoo and Conditioner is formulated with the chemically dependant client in mind, making it more conditioning and hydrating for every hair type. This technology helps you skip a wash or two between blowouts, keeping your hair cleaner longer, and colour from fading. Over washing can strip the hair strand of colour and eventually start to add deposit of soap scum on the hair…. that’s for all you Garnier Fructise users! Still a little worried about feeling “oily”, try some of our Catwalk Dry Shampoo, or Finley Powder! Both products can absorb oil and add texture to your hair, perfect for that “On the go” client!
