As well as natural talent, years of experience and a focus on individualized service for each and every client, becoming the best color specialist in Scottsdale has included careful consideration of which products to use in order to best address clients’ hair requirements.
Peroxide-based products are definitely not the way forward. Peroxide solutions work by swelling the hair’s cuticle. When the cuticle bursts, it leads to unwanted and unsightly hair damage, which is why peroxide hair products have developed such a bad reputation over the years.
Other modern hair products also have their down side. The proliferation of new chemicals, waxes and oils used in them can build up in the hair due to repeated use, leaving hair looking dulled and less than its best.
The ultimate solution to coloring needs is enzyme-based products, such as the Goldwell color range used at Sachi Salon & Spa. Enzymes are naturally occurring, specialized proteins that are secreted by certain cells of living organisms. Their function is to accelerate chemical reactions without taking part in them.
Clearly, so far as hair products are concerned, the use of natural enzymes is an important development. Enzyme-based color treatments allow professional hair colorists to provide clients with higher quality color treatment services in just a fraction of the time taken when using older methods.
The enzymes work by spreading the cuticle scales and allowed the color to be inserted directly into the hair shaft. These products generally cause no damage to the hair or scalp, unlike the harsh effects of traditional, peroxide-based products. Instead, they leave the hair looking healthy and shiny, achieving a true color that holds fast as there is no oxidation process.
Clients who have had their hair colored and treated with enzyme-based products often marvel at how healthy their hair looks following the treatment. Instead of the coloring process leaving the hair dry and brittle, it is left soft, strong and nurtured. For an additional treat, an intensive conditioning masque can be used to create even more body and shine.
Of course, colored hair still needs to be cared for carefully, just as non-color treated hair does. Top tips from the experts include washing the hair with lukewarm water (rather than hot water) and avoiding the use of too many heated styling appliances. One key tip is that clients intending to curl or straighten their hair should avoid blow-drying it first – instead, they are encouraged to let it dry naturally and then style it. Otherwise, the hair is being attacked twice by heat in the space of one styling session – once through blow-drying and again through curling or straightening.
Professional hair care tips such as these are all part of the service at Sachi Salon & Spa, where Rodney Gentry ensures that each client receives advice and guidance that is unique to their own particular hair’s needs. His individualized consultation service considers the condition of each client’s hair, any previous treatments that have been applied and other factors such as how the hair is most commonly styled. Advice is then tailored to each individual, ensuring that every one of Sachi Salon & Spa’s clients has access to specialist advice suited to their own circumstances.
Serving clients in this way ensures that they remain the focus of the service at all times and is part of the reason that Rodney Gentry has become known as Scottsdale’s top hair colorist. He is the go-to hair designer for everything from blonde highlights to full color changes and it is a reputation that is well deserved.
