I am excited to be educated about anything just hitting the scene and am constantly learning new techniques to keep up on the most current trends. Don’t worry! I dont keep it to myself. When you walk out looking fabulous I let you know every step of the way what I’ve done to get you the look you have.

Product diversion-what is it?

WHAT IS DIVERSION?
If you don’t know the answer to this question – you’re not alone. Nine out of ten consumers do not know what diversion is. But you probably have witnessed it.
Diversion is when products are sold in “unauthorized” places. For example, you might come across a few bottles of salon products in your local supermarket, drugstore, online or at a discounter. Salon professional products you find outside of a salon are considered to be “diverted.” Genuine salon quality products are sold ONLY AT PROFESSIONAL SALONS.

WHY DIVERSION IS BAD

Diverted products can be counterfeit, diluted formulas, or old, expired product that may not be safe to use. They may not even be the same product you are looking for at all, just simply the packaging with a totally different product put inside.
If you turn over a bottle of professional salon products they say on the back towards the bottom somewhere “Sold and Guaranteed Only by Professional Salons.” This means if you buy salon products in a supermarket, drugstore or any other outlet other than a salon, we cannot guarantee that it is an authentic product that will perform as tested.

ARE YOU IN DANGER?

You could be. Contaminated or counterfeit products could cause irritation or even infection.

WHO IS DIVERTING PRODUCTS?

Products are diverted by unauthorized distributors and salons or their employees, plus other dishonest individuals who see profit in piracy

Unauthorized Sales Outlets:
Any Mass Retailer
Any Mass Discount Store
Drugstore
Grocery Store
Online Purchases from non Professional Salon Products Websites

HOW TO SPOT DIVERSION

 Something that you can easily spot is that the bottles of salon products that are sold at chains stores pretty often have weird stickers all over them, and ALWAYS a sticker with a different barcode slapped over the original barcode printed on the bottle.

So brazen!

 I’ve also noticed that the prices are usually slightly more expensive- not a huge amount, but more.  I took these 2 photos and info from another stylists blog who was doing some Diversion Investigating herself. She says- “I smuggled a bottle of conditioner from my salon into the drugstore to do a little compare/contrast recon work, and the drugstore conditioner cost two dollars more. Iffy-at-best product at a higher price?  No thank you.  There’s just no reason to do it aside from purely not being aware of diversion as an issue.”What they charge vs. what we charge

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP STOP DIVERSION
Don’t buy it! And tell your friends about the potential danger of diverted products! Redken amoung many other companies, has put alot of time and money into the fight against diversion and they even have a number you can call!! If you see a Redken product for sale outside a salon please send them an e-mail to nodivert@us.loreal.com with the city, state and name of the location where you saw the products. You can also call 800-503-3997 to report diverters. They will conduct a full investigation. You can call any professional product company at any time and report diverted products.

Stop Diversion
Please purchase your products from salons that can offer you the best service and product recommendations for your hair.  Only products purchased in a salon are guaranteed to perform to our standards.  Thank you for supporting your salon and spa community.    ~Cameron Salon
