Buying from the Salon rather than the drug stores

[We are not just selling product]


Have you ever felt as though a stylist is pressuring you to purchase product?  If you feel that way they probably were.  You will not find that type of atmosphere at Forecast and there’s a reason for that.  I’ll go into that later but first let’s examine the reasons why purchasing your products from the salon is a more beneficial choice than just picking up whatever at the local CVS.

3 BIG Reasons Why to purchase hair products at the salon

  1. One big plus of purchasing in the salon is the knowledge from the service providers.  The stylists use these products on multiple people a day and we all know that no two people are alike – same with their hair.  By consulting your favorite stylist they will know the exact products you should use on your hair – if they don’t change salons.
  2. More than ever before we are all taking notice of what we put in our bodies, why not your hair?  Your hair responds to hair product and ingredients too.  Drug store products may say they include the same ingredients as salon products but the ratio is very small.  The ingredients from these products will help your hair feel incredibly soft but the outcome will lead to a major waxy build up. At Forecast we use Kevin.Murphy products as our main brand.  All KM products are sulfate, paraben and sulfate free – plus – they  contain vitamins, amino acids, orange blossom and a myriad of other organic ingredients.  You can read more about Kevin.Murphy products here: http://kevinmurphy.com.au/the-brand/skincare-for-hair/

  1. Prices – yes, drug store prices are less expensive, we can’t argue with that.  What we can tell you is that salon product is more concentrated so if used properly, it will last you longer which will in turn save you some cash.  When you purchase drug store products you don’t know how much to use for your hair type.  Your hair could look weighed down from too much product and you may not realize it.

Just a few things to think about.  We all have a budget and we realize that here at Forecast.  That’s why we’ve gone a step further and are carrying a line of products called Eleven with a price point that everyone can afford.  Here’s a little info on this salon product with a small price point yet big benefits:
