Why You Should Use Professional Hair Stylist Products

It is true that these days we have multiple products to choose from for our hair. Yet, why would we choose a professional hair product instead of the cheaper, nonprofessional products? As a cosmetologist I have spent a lot of time researching the quality of professional salon products versus the cheaper, mass marketed, nonprofessional products. Professional hair products are tested extensively to ensure safety, quality, high concentration, and effectiveness for hair. They always come with a money back guarantee which speaks volumes.

Products are tested on live models to assure that their testimonial always has the result desired. Not only do consumers use these products, but stylists use them in the beauty salons and give their expert opinions back to the companies about the quality rendered. Stylist’s opinions are used to review the marketed products, and we stylists can be very favourable or critical because an excellent hair product used on a client’s hair is essential to a stylist’s customer retention.

Companies offer toll free numbers that a consumer can call for any questions about a professional product, which is also a guarantee of quality also. Nonprofessional hair products are made for mass production and therefore they are not of exceptional quality.

Many of these products have high concentrations of alcohol, detergents, and other harsh chemicals in them that can damage the hair and skin. Along with drying out the hair and skin, these can strip out perms and salon color from your hair. Many of these products are not truly ph balanced for the hair, and can leave it dull and drab, or even fly away.

Mass manufactured department store hair products have heavy concentrations of wax substances in them also, which can lead to hair loss. The hair loss is caused due to build up of the wax additives in the product that accumulate on the scalp. This can smother the hair follicle and the ultimate result is hair loss. I have witnessed this hair loss many times with new clients who have been using these cheaper versions of shampoos and conditioners.

At first the hair products that claim luxurious shine and manageability seem to work. After several shampoos and conditioning treatments however, the wax buildup is evident from the dull lifeless hair and greasy scalp. It will take a salon clarifying treatment to remove the wax build up from the hair and scalp.

Nonprofessional hair products are not tested thoroughly enough, tried, and proven for the health and beauty of the hair and scalp. That is why they are offered at a cheaper price. You get more value in the long run when you pay a little more for a better quality, highly concentrated, professionally tested product, that is guaranteed to give you the results you are looking for.

I have personally tested both kinds of products on my own hair to experience the difference in quality first hand. My research still proves that professional products work better for the hair and scalp versus their less expensive counterparts.

I will be writing more on this topic as well!
