Department store products have ingredients in them that are not healthy for your hair. Look for the bar code, counterfit products have the bar code either scratched off or covered up. Look at the bottom of the product, each product have a batch code on them, if it is missing or scratched then it is a fake product.

Protect your health, wallet and hair by only purchasing professional products from your salon.
