Consumer Alert: It may be more convenient to buy your favorite salon brand shampoo at the grocery store or online, but these products could be old and acidified or even contain bacteria. Watch and see what you need to know before you buy your next bottle of shampoo.
Do you buy salon-quality hair products at discount retailers? BAD NEWS! Not only are most of those retailers not authorized to carry salon-quality lines, the pr...oducts you're buying are likely expired, or WORSE! Thanks Fabulously Made by Johanna for letting me interview you! (p.s. Check out my empty refrigerator!)
We hear from clients all the time what shampoo can I get an a store so I don't have to buy professional product well the point is is that I don't know because I...'m only trained and professional product so we decided to do a hair experiment with store bought shampoo and these are our results Please feel free to share!! #ascottharrissalon #scienceproject #Paulmitchell #Jpms #behindthechair ..

⚠HAIR PSA ALERT ⚠
I decided to do a little show and tell for my friends and clients that tell me they want a "fashion color" in their hair.
What most people d...on't know is that while they're seeing all those beautiful colors on social media, generally the pictures were either taken the day they were colored, or they were photoshopped.
These beautiful colors are fun to do and fun to wear, but start fading at the very first shampoo. If more than one color is used, often they bleed into each other, leaving undesirable murky results, unless the colors are shampooed and rinsed separately.
The hair has to be bleached to near white first, potentially causing great damage to the hair, and these colors bleed on everything from your face/neck/hands to pillowcases, towels, and even the car's headrest.
The brighter the color, the more it bleeds. The more pastel the color, the faster it washes out. All colors MUST be shampooed with COLD water, or they will wash out much faster.
Also, the pastels will most of the time fade all the way out. The brighter colors, however, can almost never be completely removed, just intentionally faded and colored over.
For a look like mine, starting from scratch, here's the cost.
Bleaching round one: $65
Round two (if needed) $65
Single color (purple) process: $65.
Refresh purple every 2-3 weeks: $65
Retouch regrowth at 6 weeks: $65
Refresh purple with retouch: $65
(additional colors and/or extra bowls are an extra charge)
So, in 2 months' time, to keep the hair looking fresh and beautiful, that's around $400.
Although I love doing these colors, the damage, the cost, and the maintenance are to be seriously considered before choosing to commit to fashion colors.
It really is a commitment!
I share this information because one of the worst things a stylist can do is give a low maintenance person a high maintenance color or cut. Honesty is ALWAYS my policy.
If you love these colors and still want to have your own, come on in and let's have fun at Regis Salon in the Galleria! 314-863-2229
