In fact, they’re starting to view this as an “essential” need: in a new survey1 of 1,000 American women, 48% agreed that they would consider multi-benefit hair products “essential,” making Potion 9 particularly relevant right now. 

Stylists can recommend the wearable styling cream and leave-in conditioner to clients with all hair types:

•    For textured hair: Apply on damp hair, twisting hair around finger to smooth and lock in moisture for manageable styling.     
•    For straight/wavy hair: Apply on wet hair and blow dry to lock in moisture, delivering silky body without weighing hair down.

Sebastian Professional Top Artist Angel Cardona says, “I’m a big fan of using Potion 9 to prepare the hair, either in the salon or on set, as well as pairing it with one of my favorite products, Dark Oil, to not only add conditioning properties but shine as well.”

“I use it to set almost every look because its conditioning properties help with the integrity of the hair, locks in moisture, and provides styling benefits. It’s unlike any other product out there,” says Sebastian Professional International Stylist Anthony Cole
