Snag More Clients by Reducing Hair Snags...Keys to Hydrated Hair

Almost every commercial I see on television for hair products boasts it's hydrating abilities in some way. Usually accompanied by random splashes of water, a woman with long wet hair whipping it about or the obligatory waterfall. Usually rather than wanting to buy the product I long for a tropical vacation or a glass of water.

Dehydrated hair is a common concern among, well, everyone. No one wants dry, limp or frizzy hair. We all want to be like the woman in the commercials with long luminous locks.

Prevention is always key, pretty much with everything in life. Dehydrated hair can be caused by pollution (smoke, chemicals etc), products (harsh shampoos/conditioners), and chemical treatments (coloring). Anything that strips the hair of the outer protective layer will result in dry weak hair.

What to do?

Offer client's hydrating hair treatments, hair oils, making sure they only use quality shampoo/conditioners  and styling products that will not strip their hair.

You have probably heard about the many great things about Argan Oil. It has a ton of benefits when it comes to beauty and health. Many experts all over the world call this product “liquid gold” since it can give a new life to dry and damaged hair. Argan oil comes from the Argan tree in native Morocco and the oil is extracted from the kernel of the Argan. Argan oil is much like jojoba oil, which is also known to be a product that deals well with damaged hair.

Check out the many benefits of Argan Oil for Hair
  • Moisturizes the hair by locking in moisture and is non-greasy
  • Penetrates the hair shaft improving the elasticity and preventing breakage
  • Contains vitamin E which is great for a healthy scalp and repairing damaged hair

  • Contains unsaturated fats omega 3 and omega 9 which helps prevent split ends by strengthening the protein bonding structures of the hair
  • Prevents dry, itchy scalp
  • The natural antioxidants help strengthen hair
  • It can be used as a hot oil treatment or as a leave-in/sealer
  • Removes brittleness and restores smoothness of color treated hair

Argan oil has many benefits outside of being great for dry and damaged hair. It can also be a great product for use on the face, body, and scalp as well. It can be great for hydrating the skin during facials, body treatments, and scalp treatments, as well as for dry cuticles and skin during manicures and pedicures.

EASY Up Sell - Hair & Scalp Treatment with Massage

Scalp Massages Can Equal Profits &
Incredibly Satisfying Treatments for Clients.
I  am always amazed at how few spas try and up-sell me before a service. Considering I say, "YES!!" 99.9% of the time, I am always open for beefing up treatments with pampering extras.  Recently, my husband and I were on a Regent Cruise. We had a very generous ship board credit so I decided to use it up at the Canyon Ranch spa on board.  At the start of my massage appointment, my uber professional therapist  said, "I would like to finish your massage today with a Moroccan Oil scalp massage and deep conditioning  treatment. I will work the product deep into your hair and scalp to restore moisture and luster to your hair." That sounded absolutely fabulous, and without flinching I said, "YES, YES, YES!!!". Then I paused and asked, "Is that extra?" He politely replied, "It is $38." --  SOLD.

After the 50 minute massage he began gingerly massaging in Moroccan Oil Light with his finger tips. He also used this oil to massage my neck and shoulders during the scalp massage as well. After 5-10 minutes he then massaged in the Moroccan Oil Restorative Mask to the lower section of my hair, coating dry spots and the ends well. Lastly, he used a warm, moist towel from the hot cabinet to wrap my oiled head and then pressed it into my scalp for deeper product penetration. WOW! I never wanted it to end. Of the countless number of add-on treatments I have tried through the years, this was hands down, one of the best.

Try this treatment in your salon or day spa. Clients can even go from their massage to a blow out.  If you do not carry the Moroccan Oil line, try using Orofluido from Spain.  This is an  EXQUISITE mixture of natural oils like Argan oil, Linseed oil & Cyperus oil.  The line has an elixir and a rich hair mask that creates brilliant shine!

Whatever your product preference, you should offer an up-sell. It is a great boost for your clients as well as your sales!
