Frequency depends on the needs of each individual client. For normal to slightly damaged hair, once per month may be an adequate frequency. For excessively damaged or broken hair, Custom Blend may be applied once a week for a maximum of four weeks consecutively. HOW MUCH SHOULD I CHARGE FOR A CUSTOM BLEND CONDITIONING TREATEMENT? Fees for the Custom Blend conditioning treatment should be in line with the services of your market. Mizani salons in many markets offer Custom Blend Treatments from $15 to $35 as an additional service cost. WHAT ARE ALL THE COMPONENTS OF THE SYSTEM? DO I HAVE TO USE ALL COMPONENTS OF THE SYSTEM FOR IT TO BE EFFECTIVE? Mizani Custom Blend is a simple system, comprised of the Custom Blend Diagnosis Wheel, Puriphying Shampoo, Scalp Tonic, Hydrafuse Moisturizing Conditioner, Kerafuse Protein Conditioner, and the Custom Blend Utensil kit (designed for dosing, mixing and application). Mizani strongly recommends using all components of the system for maximum effectiveness. The products were designed to be used together to ensure your clients acheive the best result. WHAT IS THE MIZANI DRY SCALP TONIC? Designed for clients who may experience dryness or itching, Mizani Scalp Tonic is a dermatologist-tested tonic that lifts dry skin from the scalp while botanical extracts deliver hydrating moisture. The Scalp Tonic is designed to be used with the Custom Blend system, either as a scalp pre-treatment (applied just prior to the shampoo) mixed with the shampoo for greater intensity (see Custom Blend Diagnosis Wheel for directions based on hair and scalp analysis.) CAN I USE CUSTOM BLEND THE SAME DAY AS A COLOR? We do not recommend doing a Custom Blend Treatment after a Semi-permanent color, as it tends to fade. A Custom Blend treatment can be used on the same day as a Permanent color. It is suggested for use after the color has been processed according to the manufacturerâ€™s directions. CAN I USE CUSTOM BLEND THE SAME DAY AS A RELAXER? Mizani does not suggest performing a Custom Blend Service on a client the same day as a relaxer. It is suggested to wait a minimum of 48 hours between services.
