We rarely respect something as much when it’s free because we don’t have 'skin in the game' (We have not had to dip into our own pocket). Besides the money, there’s an important psychological principle happening. If someone is going to chase a dream, or make a big change in their business, they have to change their mindset. Free products will not change a persons mindset.
After we have received your brief, formulating your own unique product samples and playing with products is the first step in creating your own range. It is important to us and vital each product performs on hair, does what it says to give you the confidence to move forward.
