WHAT IS IT?
Corrective Color, aka Color Correction, can mean a few different things. It could be going from a "bad" or a "messed up" color to something better looking.

ARE YOU READY
WILL IT DAMAGE MY HAIR?
Healthy hair is always my first priority, whether its a corrective color or not. In most cases I will do a test strand to see if your hair is heathy enough to start the corrective process.
I start all my corrective color sessions with one or two Malibu C treatments. These treatments are vital to ensure your hair starts off in the right direction. These treatments remove hard water, mineral, medication, and environmental buildup. And depending on the type of treatment, it can also remove a bit of color.
In all cases I will use Olaplex, the original disulfide bond builder, in all formulations to protect your hair as much as possible.
Some guests will require a cut, more than just a "trim", to ensure all of you hair is healthy.
THINGS TO REMEMBER
It's a journey that sometimes cannot be done in just one session. Every guest is different so the duration can vary greatly depending on what we're starting with and what the end goal is.
In some cases, your hair can only take so much, which means we may not reach your end goal for some time and touchups may be necessary.
Due to the complexity of Corrective Color, I do require a free consultation and charge hourly when we begin the process.
And lastly, using all of the recommended at-home products are vital to keep your color and hair healthy.
