A deep conditioning treatment is an opportunity for a quick add on service. It repairs your customer’s hair; adding shine, smoothness and nutrients, containing ingredients like keratin proteins and antioxidants. Some products work from the inside out, and others create a protective protein layer around the hair shaft. Conditioning treatments are used to fill in the places where hair is damaged in 15 minutes or less. No matter what your daily routine is, everyone’s hair endures some sort of damage. Whether it be from blow drying or styling, coloring or flat ironing - conditioning treatments deliver a range of benefits for all hair types. And, the more often your client styles their hair, the more often she should be doing a deep conditioning treatment in the salon. These are the perfect add ons to any service.
Average cost of service: $20-$35
Tools you’ll need:
Deep Conditioning Treatment $9-$20
Applicator Bottle $4
Blow Dryer $50-$120
Conditioning Treatment step by step:
You’ll always want to start any service in the salon with a full consultation. This is a time when you and your client can share information, discussing the different types of conditioning treatments and what will work best for her hair. Make sure to align the type of conditioning treatment to the results she is looking for. Some lines have separate formulas for adding strength, shine, repair, or smoothness. Ask her questions regarding her weekly routine, styling procedure, and the change she is looking to see in her hair.
Wrap a towel around your client's neck and ask her if she is comfortable.
When you turn the water on, test the water on your hand first. You want to make sure the water is at a comfortable temperature - asking your customer if they’d prefer it warmer or cooler.
Wet hair entirely and turn off the water.
Using your selected conditioning treatment, mix well in your application bottle if needed. Apply conditioner all over the hair, thoroughly saturating the base, midshaft and ends. Work in sections if your clients hair is overly thick.
Work in the conditioning treatment, using your hands or a comb, depending on the manufacturer's suggestion.
Sit your client up and direct her to either your station chair or the dryer, again depending on the manufacturer’s instructions, allowing the conditioning treatment to sit up to 15 minutes.
Once your timer goes off, Bring her back to the shampoo bowl.
Rinse hair thoroughly, rinsing the treatment out completely. Some conditioning treatments, like oiled based products, need to be shampooed out, so always read the product's directions. Wrap it up in a towel.
Guide your client back to your station. Blow dry and style as desired.
At the end of your service, always recommend products that will protect your client’s hair to prevent damage. Also, suggest a deep conditioner for at home use. Explain that using a deep conditioner at home will help maintain the effects of the deep conditioning treatment, causing the results to last longer.
