How To Buy Professional Hair Care Products

You love the way your hair looks when you leave the beauty salon, but how can you get that same look at home? If you start with a good haircut, then using professional hair care products, along with the right tools, can help you to achieve a stylish hairstyle on your own. Here are some tips to buying professional hair care products and making them work for you:

  1. Ask your hair stylist to recommend the products that he or she uses for you.
  2. If you want to try something new, ask the stylist to try it on your hair at the salon so you can see if you like it before you invest in it yourself.
  3. Find out how to use the product correctly before you take it home. Ask for tips in how to achieve the look you want.
  4. Remember that good hair starts at the roots, so begin by selecting a shampoo and conditioner that are formulated for your needs. For instance, determine whether your hair is dry, color-treated, oily or balanced to help you narrow in on the right choices.
  5. For hair with special needs, such as hair that is very dry or has split ends, consider using an intensive conditioning treatment as needed.
  6. If one brand works especially well on your hair, try other products in the line, since they may be formulated to work well together.
  7. Browse the shelves of your salon, or a beauty supply store open to the public, to find other products that might work for you. Ask for recommendations.
  8. Be prepared to pay for what you get. Professional hair care products can be expensive but many people find them a worthwhile investment.
  9. Plan to use the products you purchase as directed on the packaging in order to achieve the best results.
  10. Start with a small bottle if you are trying something new and aren't sure how it will work for you. If you are happy with the result, next time invest in a larger size, which will be more cost-effective.
  11. Understand that you can buy some professional hair care products at select drug stores and discount houses, but they are usually similar in price to what you pay at a salon and there will be no one there who can help you to select the right match for your needs. In addition, many hair product brands won't guarantee their products unless they are sold by a professional salon.
