Why Choose Salon Products For Your Hair?
The professional products we stock in our Cardiff salons are the same Redken ones you get great results from when we wash and style your hair during your appointment. By using these products you maximise your chances to achieve the same salon quality results at home.
Although professional hair care products may cost more than high street brands, they are far higher quality so you need to use much less, offering greater value for money. You will find that you need only a tiny amount of shampoo to get a rich lather when you wash your hair and you’ll need far less conditioner and styling product to get the best results. On average a bottle of professional shampoo will last around 3 months.
High Street brands of shampoo in particular can cause a build-up on the scalp and hair due to containing lots of sulphates. Sulphate based products are much tougher on your scalp because they strip the hair of its natural oils. If they are not colour safe these kinds of shampoo can strip your colour making it look dull and causing it to fade quickly.
By contrast, professional products are researched, tested and developed by dedicated teams of scientists, stylists and hair care professionals. You can rely on them to care for your hair and scalp and deliver the specialised results they advertise, such as protecting your colour and banishing frizz.
By investing in your home maintenance programme, you will also keep your hair looking healthy and fresh, meaning your hair cut and colour will stay looking good for longer too.
