When lightening a guest’s hair, it’s important to choose a lightener with a built-in bonder for added protection, such as Redken’s Flash Lift Bonder Inside and Flash Lift Pods Bonder Inside. These lighteners will protect and strengthen the bonds of the hair, reduce the damage and breakage that can often occur during lightening, and help to ensure optimal hair health post-lightening service.

The hair color used during a lightening service should nourish and reinvigorate the hair with moisture and shine. Redken Shades EQ Gloss demi-permanent hair color is the ultimate choice for lightening and blonding services. Featuring an acidic, no-lift formula, Shades EQ seals the hair cuticle after a lightening service. The formula also helps to condition the hair and guarantees amazing shine.
