PCS, The Original Color Protector, Conditioner, Styling Aid
Why use PCS?
Polymerization occurs when hair color and peroxide developers are mixed together. Excess peroxide is created and left behind for this reaction to be completed. It is for this free peroxide that you see lift; the higher the peroxide level, the more lift you see. Experiments have shown this to be a major damaging factor and especially, if not completely removed, can cause color change and fading. Our PCS formula has a special affinity (attraction) to residual hydrogen peroxide. It converts H2O2 into harmless oxygen and water which is a basic moisturizer.
