2. Use a Shower Filter for Purer Water
By attaching a filter to their shower head, clients can wash their hair with cleaner, purer water that carries fewer metals, as well as other common chemicals such as chlorine. If they live in a hard water area, this step becomes extra crucial, so share this quick and easy hack with them to save their strands from further metal damage.
3. Apply a Leave-In Conditioner
When locks become dry and damaged, gaps and tears can start to form on the hair cuticle. This results in highly porous hair, which acts like a sponge to soak up anything it comes into contact with – metals included. Porous and dry hair types tend to absorb more pollutants than low porosity locks, which is why clients tackling this beauty challenge should be seeking to replenish their stressed-out strands.
They might find that, as well as being ultra-absorbent, their hair doesn't hold onto moisture easily. That's because hydrating molecules can escape through the gaps and tears just as quickly as they entered. When these clients use rinse-out conditioners, their hair only has seconds or minutes to soak up all the goodness. Enter leave-in conditioner: one of the key products we recommend to clients with high porosity hair.
By using a leave-in moisturizing conditioner, like Elements Renewing Leave-In Spray, clients can maintain longer-lasting hydration to improve the health of their sensitized strands. The deep conditioning ingredients stay in their hair to protect against mechanical stress (think combing and heat styling). So, not only does a leave-in top up moisture levels, but it may also prevent locks from becoming more porous.
With these hair care tips, you and your clients can reduce the impact metals have on their hair's day-to-day condition. Koleston Perfect's Metal Purifier system is your ultimate ally for ultra-precise results and healthy-looking hair, colour after colour.
