The POWERTOOLS line of products by Dennis Bernard are a time saver and money maker for any hairstylist! All of the products are extremely easy to use and do exactly what they say they do — they help you power through your busy day with fast and efficient results. These products can be used in combination with your day to day hair color line, making them extremely versatile for all hairstylists and hair types. Here is a list of descriptions of the POWERTOOLS I found most helpful in the salon:
TCA – The Color Accelerator processes permanent color, semi-permanent color, demi color, bleach, foil & high lift applications in 4 to 10 minutes when added to any manufacturer’s products in conjunction with low heat (super resistant hair allow 12-14 minutes).
Gray Oxidizing Drops (G.O.D) is used in any manufacturers color to cover resistant gray hair. Permanent, demi and semi-permanent color performance is improved by adding G.O.D into the formula. The Red Color family is especially enhanced and intensified when G.O.D drops are included. Maximum color absorption with shortened processing time is achieved by mixing G.O.D and TCA (The Color Accelerator) into the color mixture. G.O.D is compatible with all shades of color and with all POWERTOOLS products. Adding 3-5 drops of G.O.D to shampoo refreshes red and warmer toned colors.
TRA – The Resistant Assistant Works in conjunction with TCA (The Color Accelerator) to provide quicker hair color coverage for super resistant root / re-growth areas, hairlines and resistant Trouble Spots. Perfect to use before semi-permanent color and super resistant perms/waves to hold services longer.
CSL – Color Shade Lifter Removes 1-3 Levels of Artificial Color from Hair Lightens on Tone use with 30 vol. clear peroxide (with/without heat) use 40 volume clear peroxide (no heat) Color Shade Lifter, ammonia and bleach free unique formula, removes and lifts 1-3 levels of artificial color from hair. Hair is left feeling soft, in great condition and ready to re-color if desired. Lightens on tone. Excellent for brightening muddy ends on redheads. For best results always do a strand test.
TCS – The Color Stain Remover Gentle and Effective on Hands and Skin. TCS is a technologically advanced all natural product used before hair color processing to protect the hairline from staining. Its dual purpose formula can also be used afterwards to remove excess color from skin, clothing, equipment, work surfaces and color embedded in nail cuticles.
