Repair Your Hair While You Sleep

Repair Your Hair While You SleepWith the changing weather and indoor heat, it’s almost inevitable that hair is going to start drying out, and your clients are probably going to ask you what they can do to really repair their hair.

For your on-the-go clients who don’t have the extra time to do a hair mask when they wash their hair, you might want to recommend Alterna’s Overnight Hair Rescue, and here’s why.

This product you leave on your hair while you sleep (which you can probably gather given the name of the product).

So basically all they have to do is dispense a quarter-size amount (depending on the length of their hair) into their palms and distribute evenly throughout their hair, concentrating on dry, damaged ends, leave on overnight and then wash out in the morning. I tried this out for three nights straight (but I used the product liberally) and in the morning after washing my hair I felt like my split ends were less noticeable. My hair felt stronger and it was shiner than before.

Now you may be asking to yourself? Is this product greasy? Sticky? Not at all. On the contrary, it smells really good (like flowers) and it dries within at least 10 minutes so you don’t even know it’s on your hair. It also doesn’t leave any residue on your pillow. For best results with this product use at least 2-3 times per week.

This product is free of parabens, gluten, phthalates, mineral oil, paraffin, DEA, TEA, Petrolatum and PABA. So what are you waiting for, try out this product for yourself! It’s convenient and it worked on my hair!
