Will using a clarifying shampoo defeat the benefits of Night Cap?
Night Cap lasts through multiple shampoos, including when you use a clarifying shampoo.
In general, we recommend not over-using clarifying cleansers, as they strip hair, adding to the cycle of damage.
When should I use Night Cap if I color my hair?
We recommend using Night Cap the evening after your color service at a salon.
If you color your hair at home, apply the color according the manufacturer’s directions. Then follow with Night Cap.
If I use Night Cap the night before a color service or coloring my hair at home, will it affect my color?
No, it is formulated to not affect your color.
Can Night Cap be used over any other serums or anti-breakage creams that are normally applied right after showering?
We recommend not applying Night Cap over a silicone or oil-based serum because they minimize the ability for Night Cap to soak into your hair. We recommend if you have a lot of styling product in your hair, to brush your hair to help remove any residue before applying Night Cap.
If you wash your hair in the evening, we recommend you apply Night Cap prior to any other stylers or leave-ins to ensure the greatest benefits from Night Cap. You may not find the additional stylers or leave-ins necessary on the nights you apply Night Cap.
Are the benefits different if you leave it in vs. rinse/shampoo it out the next morning?
The benefits will be the same regardless if you leave it in or rinse/shampoo it out of your hair the next morning. Night Cap’s benefits build over time so do whatever works best for your routine.
If I use Restore Instant Repair Cream, can I use Night Cap as well?
Yes, Restore Instant Repair Cream and Night Cap work well together to keep you hair its healthiest and split-end free.
When and why is it important for a product to be sulfate-free?
You've probably heard a lot about sulfates and generally think they are bad for hair.
You should watch out for sulfates in Shampoos as when they are used in lathering, cleansing products they can strip hair of its natural surface oils making it feel rough, dry and brittle. Sulfates can can also strip the scalp of its natural oils, leading to dryness and irritation. Examples of commonly used sulfate ingredients that can be stripping include: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate. You should watch out for these in shampoos.
Sulfates do not inflict damage on hair when used in conditioners or treatments. When used in these products they actually help make hair smoother, softer and visibly healthier.
Sulfates in conditioners and treatments do not damage chemical treatments or color. Characterizing them as not good for your hair in these types of products is incorrect.
