As hairstylists, our number one priority is the health and beauty of your hair. One of the most popular question we hear our clients ask is whether professional hair products are significantly better that the commercial ones.
We understand the curiosity of those questions as commercial products are affordable, mass advertised and appear to provide the hair glam, glow and health.
We will employ our experience from working with all types of hair and trying million different products to explain you the essential difference between professional and commercial hair products.
1.Content of vitamins and proteins essential for the health of the hair.
ne of the reasons that commercial products are affordable comparing to the professional ones is their content of vitamins and proteins.
Commercial products may list or advertise some of these good ingredients, but in reality, they contain few of these good elements which are replaced by large amounts of other chemical ingredients such as parabens, silicone derivatives, sulfates, etc.
Professional hair care products on the other hand are rich in ingredients that help the health of the hair; hence their cost is bigger.
As mentioned above, commercial products are high in sulfates, unlike professional hair care products.
But what are sulfates?
Sulfates are the ingredient that creates a rich foam in shampoo to cleanse the scalp from oil.
Sulfates affect the length and shine of dyed hair and fade the colour faster.
This is the most important reason why we recommend professional products, especially for dyed hair.
When a client invests a sum of money to change the colour of her hair, what we want is to be able to keep it vibrant, shiny and healthy as long as possible.
3.Focus on problems and different hair types
All type of hair shampoos is not an option. Definitely you can find commercial products that provide volume or are suitable for curly hair however, with the professional products provide more specialization on hair types and specific problems, that through time enhance the quality and overall image of your hair.
4.Price and quantity
Price is the main factor that many consumers choose less expensive solution, but if we look at the bigger picture, professional products are more advantageous because it saves more product in usage and time of washes.
Product quantity in usage:
A small quantity of professional product is enough to cleanse your hair and scalp.
It may produce less foam because of their low content of sulfates, but that does not play any significant role when cleaning our hair.
Time of washes:
According to the majority of our clients and the many years of our experience as hair experts, frequent hair washes is considered at least 3 times per week.
The best for your scalp however, is one or two washes per week. To achieve those times, you need to use professional products that will focus to counter oily and dryness issues respectively.
To sum up this the following: As we are eating healthy and exercise to provide the best for our body, the same should do for the health of our hair or skin.
After that statement wonder, are the professional products really expensive?
