How to prepare for Hairprint
Hairprint True Color Restorer’s patented color restoration treatment must be applied to completely clean hair. Clean hair is free of all oils and synthetic ingredients that can coat and clog the hair. Natural oils and synthetic ingredients such as quaternary ammonia salts, silicones, and proteins will negatively impact your results.
Please read carefully through the ingredients to avoid and then familiarize yourself with the ingredients in your shampoos, conditioners, styling products, and hair treatments. With proper detox, your color restoration will have better results and last longer.
7 Days Before Application
Discontinue use of all hair products (shampoos, conditioners, styling products, treatments and oils).
Use Hairprint Chelating Shampoo 1-2x per week, leave on for 5 minutes, rinse and follow with Hairprint Conditioner. If you notice that after using the Chelating Shampoo your hair feels sticky or oily please follow up with a second cleanse to help remove excessive silicone build up.
Use Hairprint Daily Shampoos and Conditioners every 2-3 days as needed during this time. If you do not have these, please consult your hairstylist for approved natural alternatives.
3 Days Before Application
Discontinue use of all Hairprint and natural conditioners and be mindful to keep hair clean of any skincare products used close to the hairline and sideburns.
24 Hours Before Application
Wash with Chelating Shampoo, leave on 5 minutes and rinse. Do NOT follow with any other products. If your hair is prone to being dry, you may use an ACV (apple cider vinegar) dilution following this final wash.
Detox seem too long?
If you make the switch to Hairprint Daily Hair Care (or another stylist approved protocol), and discontinue using styling products that contain silicones, quats and heavy oils, you will only need to follow the 3-day detox for followup root/regrowth applications. This is ONLY the case after your initial detox and initial Hairprint application. If you choose to go back to using conventional haircare products, then you will need to do the full 7-day detox before each Hairprint application.
All first-time Hairprint clients must book a Hairprint consultation and be accepted as a Hairprint client at least one week prior to service.
