I noticed today that in my Facebook newsfeed, 2 topics I had recently blogged on had popped up in discussions or in photos and been shared by many FB users. Anytime I see these 2 particular situations discussed, shown in photos, or in the media, I always like to pass them along- either as a reminder, or to educate clients who may not know! If you didn’t get a chance to read the posts I did on these 2 subjects that I’m passing on as a friendly “your stylist is your friend and wants you to know these things” reminder, you can read them below!
Below is the 1st photo I saw pop up. This is the 1st time I’ve seen this particular photo, but I’ve seen similar and I am ALWAYS telling my clients that products from these types of places are NOT THE SAME as the professional products you purchase in the salon. You can argue with me til you are blue in the face- but at the end of the day, these products are DIVERTED products and not a true, professional quality salon product. They are scams. Stolen, expired and in many cases as shown below, not even the actual product you intended to buy in the bottle. Turn the bottle around and you will see very clearly printed somewhere on the bottle “Sold only in professional salons”. If you read the blog post below that I wrote about diversion you’l l see exactly what this means. Have any questions about this subject? Feel free to ask me or any of our stylists and we’d be happy to answer them for you!
1)Product Diversion- What is it?
***Moral of the Story- Only buy salon products from professional salons that you trust!!

2)Pinterest Vs. Reality
This 2nd photo collage that showed up in my Facebook feed is a PERFECT reminder for clients that corrective color or huge color changes are not an easy fix and most times require multiple appointments in the salon to achieve your desired result……unless you plan to be bald;) Going from the 1st photo to the last photo in one appointment, you would be very lucky to still have much hair left on your head- trust me. What would be left would not feel much like hair at all!! You can read my above blog post to see why multiple appointments are necessary alot of times and what is involved in a corrective color appointment.
Keep these 2 photos in mind the next time you’re in Walmart, the drug store or TJMAX and are tempted to buy any “professional brand” products or if you are on Pinterest and get a “must have it now” feeling about a color or technique that would be a huge change!!
