Salon vs Drug Store Shampoo…the debate continues until now! You will be surprised!

Today we are taking on the Debate: Salon versus Drug Store Brands of Shampoo and Conditioners and which one is better?  Read this short blog and you will find out what makes One Brand better than all others on the market and you will be like WOW I did not know that!

In today’s world everyone is looking for the best deal!  You spend good money on your hair yet you are left wondering if Salon Products are better than Drug Store?

Well maybe? (Your Stylist thinks so and many of them truly only know what they read or are marketing too by a sales rep from that product).

This much I do know! You do want to get products that perform amazingly and are willing to pay for it ( within reason) …so How do you know whether a Shampoo and Conditioner is more than just a bunch of marketing hype and worth the money you are paying for them?

You have to do your homework!  American made Salon and Drug Store products to be honest ingredients wise are very similar. Read some labels and you can see for yourself.  Most of them contain SLS or Sodium Laurel Sulfate which is a detergent plus other harmful and possibly toxic chemicals. I don’t know about you but I sure don’t want to use harsh detergents on my expensive colored hair!  Some of the TOP LEADING SALON PRODUCTS have the same ingredients as those in Drug Store Brands… That makes you go hmmm, now doesn’t it?

Also another way they are equal is they are not PH Stabilized.  The label or marketing may say “ph balanced” but that does not equate to being “stabilized”. Actually they use Citric Acid to bring the PH level lower so it will not open your hair cuticle but the fact is Citric Acid is very unstable and actually when opposed to the air will evaporate (just open and close the lid, and say what you leave yours open in the shower!) and then the PH Level of the product rises to levels that can cause color fade and dryness…there goes that expensive beautiful hair color!

I have tried a bunch of Professional Salon and Drug Store brands over the years and what I found is none of them improved my hair texture and kept my color beautiful for weeks until I started using Advanced Colorations Advanced Hair Care Color Lock or Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner.

The good news is Advanced Coloration’s Hair Care is actually a PH Stabilized Product by using a blend of surfactants, much like a good wine uses a blend of good grapes, they can produce a ph stabilized Shampoo and Conditioner that contains no SLS and it makes for one of the best performing shampoo and conditioner products on the world market today. NO color fade, no dryness! PH stays at 6.0 and will not open the hair cuticle. NO DRYNESS AND NO COLOR FADE even after 8 weeks since my last professional hair color…how is that for performance and value?

When I found it they were not chocked full of other toxic chemicals that I had been trying to eliminate using on my body I was even more thrilled.

HOW DO I GET THIS PRODUCT?  ORDER IT, follow the information below:

So to end this debate:  Advanced Coloration Hair Care is better than any other Salon or Drug Store Shampoo and Conditioner for a lot of reasons but most importantly as it is PH Stabilized! That is revolutionary and you get to benefit. Plus you know you are getting the best for your MONEY!

The Series: Is your Shampoo really worth it? What is Paraben?

Parabens and their effects

Parabens are something that most people aren’t aware of – although many of us use them on a regular basis. Parabens are a chemical compound of para-hydroxybenzoic acid, and common types of parabens include butyl, propyl and ethyl parabens. Less common types include benzylparaben and isobutylparaben.

Parabens occur naturally in such things as blueberries, prunes and cinnamon although all parabens used commercially are made synthetically.  A common use for parabens is as a food additive, usually to add colour or flavour, and they are also known for their ability to reduce the effects of bacteria and spoilage. They are also commonly found in oil and glue products.

Parabens are found in a variety of everyday products – cosmetics, deodorant, face cream, shampoo and toothpaste. Check the list of ingredients on one of these products in your home and you will almost certainly see that parabens are included – an estimated 90% of cosmetic products include parabens.-

Studies have found that the biggest risk from parabens seems to be from the use of products that require a prolonged exposure to skin, such as skin creams and facial lotions. The longer that the parabens are on the skin, the more opportunity there is for parabens to be absorbed. When used in skin care products, parabens are absorbed directly into the blood stream rather than through the gastrointestinal tract.

One type of paraben – methylparaben – has also been linked to the premature aging of skin. A study undertaken in Japan indicated that certain cosmetic products may cause skin to age excessively when exposed to ultra-violet rays. Ironically, this compound can be commonly found in products designed to fight the effects of aging.

Some tests have indicated that parabens have caused an increase in estrogen which can possibly affect the male and female reproductive organs. Some studies in men have shown that a low sperm count and a decrease in testosterone are directly related to the intake of parabens.

One of the biggest areas of concern is the effect of parabens on breast cancer. Several studies have found traces of parabens in women with breast cancer. There seems little doubt that parabens can affect breast tissue – but whether they actually increase the possibility of breast cancer several studies are showing that there are indications that is could be a contributing factor.

It’s difficult not to come into contact with parabens – they are used in so many products that we use daily. Use of parabens is still legal in the US and it’s an area that will continue to be watched carefully. If you are concerned, an increasing number of products are now being manufactured without Paraben like our products from Advanced Coloration.

We at Advanced Coloration definitely want to produce products that contain NO PARABEN. Our Shampoo and Conditioners along with our Hair Styling Products do not contain Paraben . We are committed to providing the best performing hair care products that do not contain toxic chemicals or those that have no long term testing data about the effects of a particular chemical.
