Details For: Hair Chelator

Term  
Hair Chelator

Definition  
This is a highly specialized type of pre-treatment which is used before certain chemical services provided at a salon or at home. Chelators are designed to neutralize metallic elements in or on the hair which could potentially interfere with the chemicals being provided. Chelator can be either a separate conditioner or an ingredient in a pretreatment product. The manufacturer will often provide detailed directions for use. Chelator products can also be used to remove product build-up on the hair. Chelators can at times be drying so they should be used only when necessary and carefully.

Daily Hair Tip
In a Clairol Professional survey 33% of the respondents reported that they preferred to have their hair colored in a salon rather than risk doing damage at home. 50% of the participants said they liked their colorists best because of friendliness while only 38% valued good advice about haircolor or the fact that the colorist kept up on the latest trends.
