I want to publicly thank Safeway's store manager, Chuck Sadvaar, for removing the professional hair care products from his super market shelf.
As a consumer, most people do not realize that when you buy a professional salon hair treatment at a grocery or department store, you are forfeiting your right to actually getting what it says on the label.
Not only that, but if you purchase a professional product from anyone other than a licensed salon, you are probably paying up to 30 percent more and have absolutely no guarantee for that product.
Diversion is when products are bought and sold by unauthorized distributors and dishonest individuals who see profit in piracy. Then they end up in stores that never even knew it happened.
Could these products be unsafe? Absolutely.
In some independent lab tests actually conducted by FOX News, they found that there was a variety of mass retailers and grocery store bottles that had enough bacteria in them to make the user sick enough to require medical attention.
It goes with that old saying, "If it looks too good to be true, it probably is!"
Thanks Chuck for helping us break the diversion circle. Hopefully City Market and Kmart are right behind you!
