HAIRPRINT Colour Restorer works for naturally black, brown, and light brown hair only. We do not have a formula for naturally blonde or red hair.
To determine what colour to order or if you need two kits for your first application, see the ordering tips /colour chart tab.
If you have used hair dyes, relaxers, perms, waves, dyes, blowouts, or keratin treatments, please read our transition tips before ordering. You will need to take steps protect the processed hair and avoid having your hair go too dark.
TO ENSURE OPTIMAL OUTCOME:
HAIRPRINT works when it has unobstructed access to the hair. We highly recommend using a clarifying shampoo or chelating shampoo on the day of application to remove any possible residue or buildup. If you have hard water or borehole water or suspect you might, we recommend our Chelating Shampoo instead of the Clarifying Shampoo. The chelating shampoo will act as a clarifying shampoo but will also remove calcification, lime, iron and other minerals that adhere to the cuticle. Most commercial and quite a few “natural” hair care products contain quaternary ammonium compounds (quats), proteins or silicones, and some shampoos contain soap that can leave a residual build up on the hair. We created a complete line of shampoos and conditioners to remove the buildup and gunk and ensure healthy, soft, clean hair and optimal results from HAIRPRINT.
What are quats? These are bromine or chlorine salts of ammonia that act as anti-static agents, disinfectants 1. and algaecides. A lot of natural hair care justify quats because they contain rapeseed or turnip oil. Quats defrizz the hair, making it feel softer. However, it is the MSG of hair care: addictive and unnecessary. Quats are toxic to the fish that end up swimming in them when you wash it down the drain.
What something ‘is made’ from does not matter. What it ends up as does matter. Quats coat the hair and gum up the scalp. They include cetrimonium chloride, behentrimonium chloride, and guar hydroxypropyl trim onium chloride. Healthy hair does not need synthetics. What is toxic to fish is not good for you. Avoid them.
