Color Outside the Lines: Why we had to change our professional color

Compagnia del ColoreWhen you pay for professional salon services, you can easily decide whether certain things add up to the cost. For example, excellent customer service, a clean environment and a flattering cut are quickly apparent.

But to some extent you have to trust that your stylist is using and recommending the best products available.

This is yet another aspect of why you trust your hair to a professional: because she makes it her job to know the best new product lines, trends in product formulation and what matters most to her clients.

At the Chameleon, our stylists choose products that promote a healthy lifestyle for our clients without sacrificing the performance of the best professional products on the market. That means we make both free-of-harmful-ingredient formulas and performance top priority.

Another way we earn your trust is by carrying only salon-exclusive lines. You won’t find our products at Walmart. Or Walgreens. In fact, we choose clean-formula products that perform over popular brands because we want to offer you the best.

Because of these reasons, we have recently changed the professional color line we use in the salon. Our former product has lost its exclusivity and no longer meets the standard we are known for. In fact, the former brand we used has developed a new retail color line that’s carried in a major grocery and home goods store.

While the line we used in our salon was professional formula only, there are certain compromises we aren’t willing to make when it comes to our clients’ hair.

So we started the hunt for a new brand that fits our clients’ needs and the standard of excellence met by our other products.

And the new color-changer is Compagnia del Colore!

We researched, tested and evaluated multiple lines before deciding this is the best option to fit the values we deliver. In fact, this Italian line is a low-ammonia formula.

During our testing phase, we noticed other benefits too. Of course, the resulting color is rich and lasting. But we also didn’t have a single person report the awful burning scalp that some color lines cause.

Our favorite part is Compagnia del Colore’s professional color leaves hair feeling like it just got a transformative deep conditioning treatment. That’s a game changer!
