Ok so this post is going to be short but sweet. I'm going to just give you a few facts about shampoos and conditioners, because well life is too short to be reading information that quite honestly only the scientist and manufacturers need to know about.
Why should you use Professional Shampoo and Conditioner?
Fact 1- Your colour will last longer
Most professional shampoos and conditioners are sulfate free. Sulfates are the ingredients that make your shampoo lather. This adds absolutely no benefit to the hair but will make you think it is cleaner because of the lather. When using them hair gets stripped of its natural oils and colour by detergents in shampoo that contain sulfates.
Fact 2- Doing 2 shampoos is better than 1
This is because the first shampoo opens the cuticle leaving the second one to remove dirt and treat your hair issues.
Fact 3- Shop bought products leave a build up
Any products that contain silicone are not good. Silicone is a cheap chemical that's added to shampoo and conditioner to add a shine to your hair. It does this by forming a layer around the hair shaft. This gives the illusion of healthy hair but does in fact smother the hair preventing moisture from penetrating which can lead to dry brittle ends. Plus because the hair is coated you can never really get it clean leaving you with greasy roots that gets weighted down. To check your products look for words ending in 'cone' in the list of ingredients.
Fact 4- It will be easier to manage
No two heads are the same. Salon quality shampoo and conditioner are tailored for this reason, making it easier to manage your hair. Its texture and condition affect how the product preforms. Salon products contain essential oils and a higher level of ingredients that that work with the ph levels of your skin and hair nourishing and strengthening the outer layer of your hair helping it to stay conditioned, smooth and shiny.
