Are Salon Products Really Necessary?

Salon Products are not always necessary but certainly worth it especially when on sale!

Ever since Iíve been going to hair salons my stylists have been pushing salon products and insisting they make a huge difference in the overall appearance of hair. Iíve been sold a multitude of salon products to use in shampooing and conditioning my hair. Stylists have insisted that I needed specific salon products to protect my hair from heat damage and to promote shine. All too often your stylist will recommend products not necessarily because your hair really needs it but because they receive commission on the sale. If I used all the products that have been promoted by the various stylists over the years, I would probably have the flattest oiliest hair ever. I had to ask myself the same question that many of you have probably asked yourselves. Are salon products really necessary? Is the benefit to your hair worth that extra cost?

Obviously there are plenty of store brands that will cleanse, condition, and help you style your hair. Many of these may seem much more budget friendly than the various salon products. Keep in mind that many salon products are concentrated and require only a tiny amount of product to do the job. The cost difference might not be as much as you think. I have some friends who still insist on using bargain priced store brands and it seems to work well enough for them. That said, I do believe that certain salon products work much better to keep my hair healthy and shiny.

I admit that over the years I have tried store brands in an effort to save money. At first they seemed to work but over time I noticed my hair was losing that healthy shine. I also noticed that once I started coloring my hair, the color washed out faster when I was using the store brands than it did when I used my salon products. Iíve always been open to trying new salon products and rarely stick within one particular brand for all of my hair care needs. The best way to find new products is by trying them.

Often the multitudes of salon products available can be overwhelming and itís difficult to figure out where to start. Asking friends is one method of narrowing down choices but often their hair needs are different than yours and the products they use might not work for you. You can take your chances and simply choose one that falls into the category of products you need: or you can research various salon products for your hair type and see which ones come most recommended. I have found my best resource to be my stylist. If I like the way my hair looks when I am done I simply ask her/him what products were used on my hair that day. Quite often they have samples of salon products and you will find yourself going home with several choices to try. Once you figure out which one works best on your hair you can purchase full size versions of your favorite.

Be wary of a stylist who recommends that you use salon products from one particular line. There might be a sales promotion on that product inspiring their sudden advice. There is nothing wrong with mixing up products to find what works for you. I have always kept a couple store brand shampoos on hand to use on occasion but I stick firmly to my salon product conditioners. I have always been happy with the entire line of Biolage by Matrix. Over the years I have used many of their products depending on the styling needs of my hair at the time. Their color care line is great for maintaining the depth of your color longer and also keeping the shine. At times I need more moisture and I fall back on either their hydrating line or my tried and true favorite the deep conditioning balm.

Your salon products will need to be changed at times. For instance, when I had curly hair the deep moisturizers became too heavy for everyday use. I found myself using salon products for curly hair. I loved the Catwalk by Tigi line for curly locks and also used Redken Fresh Curls. When I started coloring my hair more often and styling it straight I had to change products. My favorites are now KMS California Color Vitality, Biolage Color Care, and Redken Color Extend. I have also added in Argan Oil as my favorite salon product to use before styling.

My answer to the question of whether or not salon products are really necessary is no they arenít really ďnecessaryĒ. However, if you want your hair to look its healthy, shiny best then they most certainly are worth it.
