Redken Heatcure In-Salon Total Hair Restoration Treatment
This product is suitable for anyone who wants sleeker, smoother hair and will work for any type of hair, which is what makes it such a good product and easy to recommend. To begin using this product, the hair is first washed and then dried. An even application of formula (a cocktail that contains proteins, conditioners and waxes to smooth and strengthen locks) is applied to the hair in sections. To allow the product to work more effectively, a tool similar to a straightener is applied to the hair. Afterwards, the hair receives a rinse and is dried again. This product should provide smoother hair for around 10 washes.
Goldwell Kerasilk Premium Hair Care
The Goldwell product promotes four features: colour, control, repower and reconstruct. The colour feature enhances the vibrancy of the hair colour. The control feature contains keratin to strengthen hair. The repower feature is designed specifically for strengthening fine hair. Finally, the reconstruct feature focuses on preventing split ends and adding moisture back into the hair. The best results last for 10 washes, while the smoothness of the hair can last for up to 4 months.
Wella System Professional Energycode Complex
The Wella System is designed for dull, limp, tired hair. Hair is examined in close up with a hand-held microscope, and then the client fills out a questionnaire so that you can determine the right combination of products to replenish their hair. Believe it or not, there can be up to 174 million combinations! Hair is then washed and treated using the prescribed products.
Olaplex is typically used for extremely dry hair. It is best used by clients who constantly dye and bleach their hair as it works to strengthen roots and strands. It results in the hair being shiny, smooth and strong – and you can continue to use the hairdryer on colour-treated hair.
Fusio-Dose involves taking close photos of strands of hair and then taking note of what needs fixing. From there, you can diagnose any ailment—such as dryness, breakage, and colour damage—and mix up a custom cocktail for the client’s hair. There are 20 different treatments to address every concern, including dryness, damage, frizz, over processed or colour-treated hair, and lack of volume to make hair healthier and more manageable.
This product mainly focuses on dramatic colour changes, like dark to platinum. It helps to keep hair strong and avoids significant damage from the colour. It should be used during bleaching or dying and it will rebuild the hair bonds that have been damaged. First, a liquid solution called Virgin Protect is mixed into the chemical service. Then, Virgin Lock, a rinse-out treatment, is used after shampooing and before conditioning.
