Always Finish Your Haircolor Services With A Shades EQ Gloss
When it comes to achieving the perfect tone, Shades EQ demi-permanent hair gloss is every stylist’s secret weapon. A Shades EQ gloss allows you to enhance your guest’s haircolor, and tone away any unwanted warmth or brassy undertones, all while adding a gorgeous high-shine finish. Redken Shades EQ hair gloss also works to balance the hair’s Ph level and condition the hair, which in turn helps keep the hair healthy and strong. This quick, 20 minute service provides the ultimate finishing touch for any color service.
And while a Shades EQ service is an amazing way to tone your client’s color before they leave your chair, it’s also a great way to refresh your client’s color in between their regular salon visits. If any of your guests struggle with brassy hair or unwanted undertones in between salon appointments, encourage them to book a Shades EQ hair gloss appointment 3-4 weeks after their initial visit. They’ll leave the salon with a beautiful, refreshed tone and glossy shine!
Recommend A Haircare Regimen To Tone and Strengthen
When it comes to caring for color-treated hair, it’s important to recommend a shampoo and conditioner that will strengthen while helping to maintain the tone of your client’s haircolor. If you have blonde or silver guest, a color-depositing purple shampoo will help cancel out any yellow or brassy tones, keeping her color cool and bright. Redken’s Color Extend Blondage system is an excellent regimen for cool blondes while the Color Extend Graydiant system is best for gray or silver color-treated hair.
“Redken’s Color Extend Blondage Shampoo and Conditioner is amazing in that it addresses two common concerns for blondes: toning and breakage.”, says Redken Artist Woodward Bartlett, “Blondage shampoo deposits violet pigment which helps to cancel out brass. The system also features the Triple Acid Protein Complex which helps strengthen fragile hair, fight excessive porosity, breakage and many other blonde hair woes! With Color Extend Blondage, blondes don’t have to choose between maintaining tone and keeping the hair strong. You get both benefits with one product.”
“With the Graydiant system, silver clients can gently cancel any yellow tones with the violet- depositing Graydiant Shampoo. The Graydiant conditioner actually deposits silver pigment into the hair for a gorgeous, titanium end-result. It’s a true game-changer for silver hair clients.”
Strengthen and Repair With Extreme Anti-Snap:
Protein and moisturizing treatments are a must-have to fortify, reinforce and strengthen the hair following any lightening service. Regularly incorporating these treatments into your client’s weekly haircare regimen is essential to prevent damage and maintain the strength of the hair. Redken’s Extreme Anti-Snap leave-in treatment helps to repair breakage, seal split ends, and re-infuse the hair with protein that can be lost during the chemical processes that take place during a haircolor service.
“I recommend Extreme Anti-Snap to every one of my guests because it addresses every type of damage hair can be exposed to.” says Bartlett, “It’s super easy to use as a quick leave-in treatment and is a definite ‘Must Have’ to prevent breakage or frizz.”
