Big companies like Matrix, Redken, L'Oreal are now advertising hair color claiming they are 'ammonia-free'... do you know what I think as a Colorist?
Oh geez, not going near that one. Why? ? I have standards.
Ammonia is what one needs for hair color to work at its optimum..... years ago when this 'ammonia-free' idea was brand new, I tested multiple new lines out........the result? Just average.Not a lot of shine, not great gray coverage and those are the 2 main points colorists look for in their Hair Color Lines. First of all, you need to understand what ammonia does in hair color ? I think everyone has a false idea of what it is and what it does. It's not that tart 'scent' that is in a Hair Salon, that smell is almost always from:
- Acrylic/Gel & all other NAIL product ingredients
- and then any combinations of all them !
No one has produced a 'quality' line of hair color without ammonia and from my experience, people do not want to sacrifice one for the other. But, if you would like to try one of these new lines, I will be happy to carry them in a trial-phase type form. So in the testing faze you can order 1-2-3 tubes of any one of these new lines by writing the store with the line and the colors, and we will order them for you and if we find that many of you are interested in one of these lines, we will be happy to carry it for you !
Hows that for 'customer service'
is our email, so please - drop us a line with your request, it will take 1 week to get your color!
