Continuing our series on product diversion:
The professional brand products that end up in grocery stores and online are likely to be old or completely counterfeit. In a blog by Courtney of Fry Sauce and Grits, an Eclectic Lifestyle Blog, she purchased identical products from both her professional salon and from Amazon. She compared the products in her article and here is some of her findings.
“I had an experience this last week that made me really mad, sad, and upset. I recently got a haircut and needed to buy some new hair products because buying the right kind of product for your hair makes or breaks the way you can style it. Because I was trying to get the best deal I could find, I resorted to buying two professional hair care products from Amazon. Well I’m here to tell you that the two products I bought from Amazon were total fakes or counterfeited products.”
“The mousse I bought online looked like it was diluted and within a few minutes the mousse broke down or evaporated and left a wet spot on the black paper. The mousse I bought in the professional salon stayed that way for over an hour until I threw away the paper. So who knows what kind of crap is in the online bought mousse!”
