How to Help Your Clients with Root Regrowth During Lockdown
As we enter week six of enforced social distancing, clients are becoming more desperate and vocal about their hair, and in particular their root needs! With this in mind, and to avoid them being tempted by box dyes and a DIY approach, why not recommend one of the following to see them through until they can visit you again? A great way of keeping in touch and offering helpful advice and solutions during these difficult times and generating some much-needed revenue for your business and the industry as a whole.
With reflective mineral powder to give a multi-dimensional natural look, Color Wow Root Cover Up fills in the gaps around the hair line to cover regrowth and one compact will give clients between 6-12 months of usage. Each of the eight shades from platinum through to black are water resistant and multi tonal.
Designed to conceal regrowth, the instant blend-in, wash out Fudge Professional Root Disguisers come in light blonde, dark blonde, light brown and dark brown and are humidity and transfer resistant. Iron oxides are triple milled to produce a micro fine powder that aids spreading and even coverage, with dimenthicone conditioning the hair.
The Joico Tint Shots are root concealers and available in black, dark brown, light brown and blonde. Quick drying, they leave the hair feeling clean and uncoated and will last between shampoos as they conceal roots and make thinning areas less noticeable. With a Bio-Advanced Peptide Complex, the product also works to repair and prevent further hair damage.
