Great Hair Colorists are able to do that in a creative and holistic way that matches a person’s look and defines a powerful image for them. The best Hair Colorist are able to do all of these things while making the treatment a great experience for the client. For the majority of clients that experience some scalp irritations during salon services, creating the salon visit into a rich and enjoyable experience is what sets the best Hair Colorist apart.

Among its’ many benefits, Soothe Plus has been proved beneficial for use after hair coloring, lightening, and perming. This is because these salon services require the use of peroxide. If you take the water we drink (H2O) and add an additional oxygen molecule, you will have Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2), a powerful oxidizing agent. As hairstylist, we couldn’t do our jobs successfully without it. This added oxygen, allows us to color and lighten hair permanently, and neutralize our perms.

The Soothe Plus Range

If this is not properly accomplished and oxidizers are left in the hair after a salon service; every time your client is in direct sunlight or surrounded by UV rays, the hair will continue to oxidize and cause premature hair color fade.

Another side effect of improper removal of these oxidizers is scalp irritation. If you have ever poured peroxide on a cut or gargled with it, you have almost certainly experienced a slight irritation or noticed it bubbling up. Depending on your clients’ sensitivity level, they might too experience this feeling on their scalp.

The Soothe Plus range is formulated with the latest botanical and certified organic ingredients and represents the ultimate in natural hair care technology. The unique formulations of the three products reduce scalp irritation and protects against residual peroxide.
