Interview with Dedee:

How did you find out about Advanced Coloration, approximately when did you switch to AC? Met the sales and marketing manager. I switched my Professional Color Line approximately 9 to 10 months ago.

What where the factors or things that made you want to switch your Color Line to Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color?  The performance of the color, the healthy condition of the hair after coloring, the technology of the color process with Advanced Coloration is revolutionary and is so much better for your hair, it allows more pigment in smaller molecules to enter the hair along with conditioner that go inside the hair itself, without having to blast the cuticle open due to low ammonia therefore the cuticle closes more easily and securely which aids in retaining the original color without fading.

What are the key things or differences in using Advanced Coloration versus your prior Color Line?  The condition of the hair after coloring is so much better, the length of time that the color stays true is amazing. Also the ease of formulation, one of the easiest lines to formulate available in the marketplace today.

Have you completed the Educational Training Classes at Advanced Coloration?  Completed thru which level? What things did you find appealing about the training with Advanced Coloration? Yes, I have completed all three levels, I love the support from the staff and educators and the hands on training for color correction.

Do you place your orders via the Advanced Coloration Website? What are a few things or advantages in doing business with Advanced Coloration? Yes, I simply sign in, place my order and I receive it the next day!! So simple, especially when I am replenishing my retail stock for my customers because the Shampoos and Conditioners as well as the gel, mousse and hairspray just fly off of my shelves!!!

If you were to state a few key differences in how the color line is used or performs versus your previous line can you please list them here: Easy formulation, true to swatch colors, improves condition of hair, shine of hair and lasting color.

Do you purchase the retail shampoo and conditioners and styling from Advanced Coloration? Can you please tell me what you like about the retail products? The shampoos and conditioners improve the condition and healthiness of the hair from the first time you use it to a very marked improvement after two weeks of use. Hair spray is glue free so you can comb out and use heat on hair again to restyle with out melting glue on the hair. Works as a thermal protector when restyling.

In conclusion would you like to share a statement that sums on how Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color has made your job as a Colorist more enjoyable or easier? I am more knowledgeable due to the support and education that is always at your fingertips via the website or a phone call away. I do not have to leave my salon to get product so I can be accessible to my customers. I have more retail business because the products really work!!!! No guesswork in adding tones to base colors, A/C has already done that for you. I love seeing happy customers that know they have received a service that is actually good for their hair!

What I LOVE about Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color

that use Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color.

This week’s Featured Stylist:  Linda Phelps, Master Cosmetologist since 1982, Licensed in Georgia and Florida currently resides in Blairsville, Georgia.

 

Linda is a Colorist and previously used Schwarzkopf color, as well as Paul Mitchell and Redken.

She has been a colorist for over 30 years and converted to Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color in 2011. She located Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color via the internet and contacted Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color to find out more about the line. She was invited to a personal introduction session at the Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color Training Center in Buford Georgia and learned the basics of the line. According to Linda she was impressed by the training coordinator and how easily the line was to use and the results she saw were impressive.

Linda purchased the color package and began to use the Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color on her current and new clients and she said “I have never been happier with a Hair Color Line or Hair Care Products as I am with Advanced Coloration, they are SUPERIOR products to anything I have used in the past.”

Linda was asked if she would share a few key differences in the Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color line versus Schwarzkopf that she had been using and her answers were as follows:

“It mixes 2 parts developer to 1 part color, and the color tube is large at 3.4 ounces. I get much more color for my money.”

“No damage to the hair when using the Bleach from Advanced Coloration. It is so easy to use!”

“The Color and the Hair Care leaves the hair so soft and shiny.”

“I have no fear using Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color , I select the desired target color, follow the very simple formulation process ( I learned in the level 1 class) and then measure and mix and I get a great result  EVERY TIME!”  “Previously when I mixed with other colors I never was quite sure what the result would be…I often just hoped the result was what I wanted! With Advanced Coloration I get the exact result I was going for, no more hoping just results!”

Wow you can hear for yourself from an experienced stylist that there are some very good differences between the Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color Line and others that she has used previously. Here is a breakdown in the key differences of Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color versus Schwarzkopf that Linda was using:

Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color mixes 2 parts developer to 1 part color and are a demi, semi and permanent color all in one line.

Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color does not have that strong ammonia odor when mixing and applying the color to the client.

The Bleach is easy to mix and does not swell up and crawl out of the bowl or the foils. It is very gentle and does not streak, spot or leave the clients hair damaged when mixed well and used properly.

The color cannot over process. Let’s say that again, you cannot over process a client with Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color, with the ammonia at ½% it will stop processing and not over process and go “dark”.

The Gray Hair coverage is so easy to achieve. Simply use the  10 volume developer with your target color from the swatch book mix 2 parts developer to 1 part color, apply to the client’s Gray for 30 minutes and it is covered. No mixing additional “N” to achieve grey coverage.

We also asked Linda what she liked best about Advanced Coloration as a Company.  She said “She loved doing business with Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color as we made her feel part of the team, like family, our training was the best she has ever attended and she learned so much and wants more! In addition she also mentioned “that our pricing was a great bonus to our line…she got amazing performing products and she got to put profit into her business!”  She also said “You have amazing customer service and ship the product quickly right to my location!”

Linda also wanted to share with everyone that her color business has increased A LOT and she thanks the beautiful results of Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color for assisting her. She says it is “AMAZING AND SELLS ITSELF once someone has the color applied and can see the results!”  We at AC say GO LINDA!

We have many customers just like Linda and we will be writing about them in the coming weeks so check back to read about them and their business!  They will also be sharing tips and experiences and photos of their work on our Facebook Page so make sure to “LIKE US” and join us for more conversation.

What’s PH Got to do with it? How to stop hair color fade out

What’s PH got to do with how your beautiful new expensive hair color fades?  Actually everything!

Have you not ever gotten a beautiful hair color at a salon and then the next week begun to see it fade ( especially you Red Girls! I know you know !)?

Just a quick Chemistry lesson here can help you retain that beautiful color for weeks or even months!

Here is the definition of PH: In chemistrypH (Potential Hydrogen) is a measure of the acidity or basicity of an aqueous solution.[1] Pure water is neutral, with a pH close to 7.0 at 25 °C (77 °F). Solutions with a pH less than 7 are said to be acidic and solutions with a pH greater than 7 arebasic or alkaline.  This was taken from Wikipedia.

PH matters to your hair and hair color because the higher the PH is of a product or hair color the more it opens your hair cuticle.

Okay in simpler terms if you hair cuticle is opened and not returned to a closed natural state the hair color you have just gotten will simply wash right out and even for those that do not color increased PH levels in products result in dry and dull hair.

Most hair care shampoo and conditioner’s on the market whether you buy Salon products or a product from a drug store they use Citric Acid, or other forms of natural acids to drop the PH Level of their products when they are manufactured. Sounds pretty harmless right?

Well the problem lies here… acids like Citric are unstable and will evaporate , dissipate  and when they does it raises the PH level of your shampoo and conditioners.  It may start out at a level that will not open the hair cuticle but as you open and close the lid or leave it open ( yes you know you do!) in your shower it raises to levels that open the hair cuticle. By the way they call this PH Balanced in the Industry.

So what kind of hair care products does not raise in PH? Those that are PH Based or made with a good blend of surfactants. These are good natural based elements that are blended together much like a good wine produces a STABILIZED PH shampoo and conditioner and thus the PH will never go to a level to open the hair cuticle.  Even if you left it open in the shower for many many days.

So where can you find  these PH based Shampoo and Conditioners that also contain no SLS ( detergents we have discussed this in other blogs) and also no Paraben? Actually at your local salon that carries Advanced Hair Care Products like Color Lock and Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioners.  If you need to locate a salon in your area simply email us at info@advancedcoloration.com or call 1-877-50-COLOR.

If you want to keep your locks shiny, bouncy, and retain that expensive hair color with a “GOOD FOR YOU” natural PH Based shampoo or offer it to your clients then you have to get these products right away.
