Braid each section and sleep with the braids in place. In the morning take the braids out to reveal your stylish new surf hair.

Salon Hair Supplies Are Better For Your Hair 0

Why is salon quality haircare better for your hair than super market brands, and why the difference in prices?

 

Hairdressers, wholesalers, & hair care manufactures get asked this question each and every day by their clients and consumers showing us that there is still plenty of confusion around this topic.

Over the last 30 years, many experts have spent plenty of time researching and writing about the salon home hair care supplies versus grocery store brands with similar outcome and results.

That purchasing salon quality hair supplies is better for your hair and scalp than cheaper non salon alternatives.

So why is this the case you may well ask?

The differences between salon and non salon haircare supplies:

 

Professional haircare companies are the creators of salon quality hair supplies, and spend plenty of time and money perfecting their shampoos, treatments, styling products, electrical equipment, brushes and anything else that the consumer takes home from a salon. It's in their interest to make sure that their products are the very best available for a number of reasons. Here are some of these reasons why professional salon supplies stack up best.

  • To protect the integrity of their clients hair & scalp: A good example here is electrical haircare manufactures such as Parlux, or Silver Bulett that are always aware of the need for thermal repair from heat styling, investing in temperature regulators, ceramic blades, and other new technologies to protect the hair and scalp. This model is critical for their products success and very survival. Another example is where haircare companies such as Edgy Haircare create water soluble styling products that leave no build up on the hair shaft to leave hair dull, flat, or to interfere with hair colour use.
  • To protect the integrity of their other products within their brand: Most professional hair care companies also supply hair & beauty salons with products such as hair colour, bleach, and other chemically altering services and therefore make a significant investment in the product development that protects hair against UV light, and colour fade preservation.
  • To offer their consumers more value for money: Salon quality brands such as the NFuzion range of haircare have very concentrated formulas and consistencies, so although they cost more upfront, they are more cost effective. Another example where paying more upfront equals more value and better haircare is when purchasing professional hair brushes such as Denman Jack Dean with natural bristles. The brush will last much longer than cheaper brushes, but will also be better as it will not fray or tear the hair and scalp.
  • To have superior products than any of their competitors: This makes product companies work even harder, to get your business and then to keep it. Some of the ways they do this includes coming up with new formulations, that have no harmful chemicals and ingredients such as parabens, and sulphates, or by even becoming organic.  

 

You get what you pay for:

 

From my own experience as a hair stylist touching and looking at hair all day long, the difference was remarkable when my clients switched to salon quality brands against supermarket brands. Their hair looked radiant, colours faded less, scalp conditions went away, and far less damage was seen on their hair when they used professional electrical appliances such as blow dryers, and ceramic straighteners.

It takes more investment to develop superior products to a niche market place, and hence why salon quality products are more expensive to purchase.

The reality is that you ultimately do get what you pay for. Quality and high performance products come at a price, but here's the funny thing, that in the log term you end up saving money anyway. 

And last of all, and more IMPORTANTLY that your hair, scalp, hair colour, and hairstyle will look and feel much better.

Salon Solutions stocks salon quality hair care including shampoos, conditioners, treatmentsstyling products, hair appliances, electrical equipmentaccessories, and even pet grooming care, from many major professional brands, and all at affordable prices.

What is the best shampoo for your hair and scalp? 0

 

What exactly is Shampoo?

Most people know that shampoo is usually a liquid, or gel applied to wet hair that creates lather and bubbles, meant to clean or remove oil, dirt, skin particles, dandruff, styling agents, and anything else that people or the atmosphere can throw at their hair and scalp.

Pretty simple you would think?

However, while the concept is easy enough to comprehend, many manufactures with their marketing jargon, misleading graphics, ingredient lists, and "how to use" directions have left most people confused about what shampoo they actually need, and which one is best for their hair and scalp.

To understand shampoo better it is worth knowing a bit more about it's origins, and how it has evolved or changed throughout the ages. 

History of shampoo:

 

Ancient Hindi tribes invented shampoo. The word shampoo originally comes from the Hindi language and means “ to massage the head with hair oil”. A gentleman called Sake Dean Mahomed, opened the first shampoo bath, introducing the term and service in Brighton England in 1814.

In the 1900s, the meaning of the word shifted from massage of the scalp to that of applying soap to the hair, which is what early shampoo was, a soapy detergent. This soap certainly cleaned the hair, but left it feeling and looking rather bad.

Modern day shampoo:

In the 1930's, a crafty English hairdresser started mixing herbs and fragrances together with surfactants that resulted in the hair looking healthy and smelling even better. This was the first known synthetic or non soap shampoo.

These days, shampoo has evolved into many different formulas for a range of hair and scalp types. A mixture of organic and plant derived extracts or oils added with gentle surfactants, preservatives, and fragrances will clean and nourish your hair, and help your scalp. Modern day shampooing happens without irritation to your scalp or any adverse effects to your hair either. As a matter of fact, using the right shampoo will genuinely improve the condition of your hair, or alleviate the hair and scalp problem, but how?

 

How does shampoo work?

As we all know, oil and water do not mix together. Imagine a shampoo molecule looking like a tadpole, with a head and a tail. When shampoo is applied to your hair, it works because one part of the molecule (the head) is attracted to and sticks to the oil on your hair shaft, while the other part (the tail) is attracted to and sticks to water. So when running water is poured over your scalp to "rinse" away bubbles, this strips oil, sebum, and other impurities off your hair.  At the molecular level, it’s like a tug of war effect. Pretty cool isn’t it?

So what shampoo is best for your hair and scalp?

Now that we understand how shampoo works, it is also important to know that changing specific ingredients in shampoo will treat the many different problems that people find themselves with all over the world. The list below links to other pages that explains in more detail about each shampoo type, while providing you with information on the best shampoo for your hair and scalp.

Remember, that everybody is different and therefore will need to find a shampoo that is best suited to his or her own hair and scalp issues at any given time. Also, be aware that your shampoo may need to change over time dependant on your own body changes, where you go and “take your hair”, and what you do to it.
