What's Hot This Month: April Picks

From bond builders to new product launches and natural color lines, these items need to be on your radar. 

Every time you lighten a client's hair whether it’s for all over color or for balayage or babylights, damage can occur. When hair is colored or lightened, the bonds that make up the cellular membrane are broken so that color can be deposited or in the case of highlighting, removed. The b3 Brazilian Bond Builder works at the cellular level targeting and repairing broken bonds so that, over time, if a client wants to keep their tresses light or experiment with direct dyes, she can rest assured that her hair won’t be damaged in the process.
In the past, the only way to correct damage from hair color was after the fact. Now, you can protect hair during the coloring process with The ColorpHlex Professional Kit, which includes two bottles of Step 1 Color Strengthening Additive and two bottles of Step 2 After Color Strengthening Finish. The magic ingredient is ColorStrong™ Complex, a naturally-derived vegetable protein molecule that helps reduce damage and breakage. The company offers a total of three kits that are beneficial for any stylist who works with clients who want to experiment with pastels, direct dyes or all-over lightening.
