Your hairdresser encourages buying and using professional products primarily because they’re better for your hair’s health, and depending upon your specific style, may be the “magic” that makes the difference between how you look walking out of the salon, vs. when you DIY.  Many folks simply don’t understand that it’s the GREAT products making that difference.

The truth is salon products have much more of the necessary vitamins and proteins your hair needs to maintain and restore its health. Store-bought products realized this and began advertising “Hey! No need to pay for that bottle of salon product! We have the good stuff in ours!”  when really they should have said, “Hey we placed a microscopic pinch of that essential ingredient in our product and are now going to act like it will make a difference on your hair!”

While Health and Style Institute’s salon services are mind-boggling affordable, you’re still spending money for that trendy new cut or gorgeous winter color… so why jeopardize that fabulousity by using drugstore shampoo, conditioner, and styling products to save a few bucks?

The same is true for skin and nail products; professional products are better quality and that difference will be seen in healthier, more beautiful skin and nails!

Hair gloss treatments are often met with confusion. What exactly does it do? How are they different than hair color? And why is everyone getting them? Looking at all the ins and outs of a hair gloss treatment, it’s pretty easy to see that it’s packed full of beauty benefits and should be on your “To Do” list! Here are some things that make a hair gloss treatment different than a classic hair color service… and why you definitely should consider getting one.

Repair Summer Damage
Spent a little too much time in the sun and chlorine this summer? Get a gloss. It actually repairs your hair and undos all that damage, so you’ll feel a lot better. The gloss will return texture and deep condition your strands for ultimate silkiness and shine. A clear gloss is essentially a powerhouse of a conditioning treatment for your strands. All you’d be doing is lowering the pH level of your hair and imparting extreme conditioning properties.
Shine and Softness
A gloss is very acidic and closes the hair and the cuticle tight. The result is a very smooth surface texture that will reflect a lot more light and have a much softer feel to it. . It makes your hair super shiny and smooth. It will even reduce a little bit of frizz, and overall, your hair feels fabulous!

Translucent Color
A gloss will work with the variation of tone that you hair naturally has, allowing for a more subdued shade. If you have gray hair and if you put a gloss on, it will have a very tonal effect as opposed to being one solid opaque color

It’s No Big Commitment
The best thing about it is there’s no commitment to it. You can do a clear gloss, which only enhances your own natural tones, or even a color gloss which will fade on its own, within six to eight weeks. And if you want to change your hair, it doesn’t interfere with any type of chemical change you want to do in the future.

It’s Easy to Maintain
To lengthen the life of a gloss, use sulfate-free products that are made for colored hair and you should be good to go.

 

It’s Totally In For Fall
This season’s hair trends will be all about really rich jewel tones. A clear gloss will brighten and enrich your natural tone. If you’re considering a color gloss and you’re a brunette, go for a rich honey or espresso brown. If you’re a redhead, try a deep copper or auburn. And if you’re a blonde, opt for a golden tone.

Saving Money is ALWAYS In!!
