Once discovered, Roffler-trained hair-stylists (and Roffler products), were sought
out nation wide. Edmond "POP" Roffler of Coral Gables Florida, brought his
European method of hairstyling to America in 1958. While new in America many
European haircutters had seen this technique before. Today the Roffler method is not
widely known in the USA nor is it widely taught in hairstyling schools. "POP"
Roffler developed a training system and later franchised people to practice the
Roffler Sculpture Cut under his trademark " Roffler
Sculpture Kut". In 1966 a group of Roffler stylists won the
European Hairstyling Competition in Brussels (a first). In 1964 there were between
200 - 300 Roffler stylists. In 1979 there were over 4,400 Roffler salons nation wide.
Framesi, Roffler & Color PLUS were first combined forming FP Brands and later
purchased by Styling Technology.

(These 2 shampoos are supposed to be the same with different color added. BLUE for Gray
Hair and GOLD for blond hair. Originally the color made a difference but today they tell
me the color does not come out to tone the hair. I will tell you that if someone wants
Blue they don't want to switch to Gold. Further if someone is used to GOLD they do not

Many say the menthol / evergreen component in this
formulation makes their scalp tingle. Mountain Sage cleanses thoroughly and helps
control dandruff , and leaves the scalp feeling rejuvenated. Not for use with
color-treated hair. Follow with your Roffler conditioner.
On a personal note:
I had dandruff for years before I went to my first Roffler stylist.
He took the time to ask me questions and discovered I was scratching my scalp with my
fingernails and hairbrush, causing the very problem I was trying to get rid of. He
suggested Roffler Gold shampoo and Protein 35 conditioner. I took
both home and in less than 5 weeks my problem was gone! I have always wondered why all the
other barbers and hairstylists never took the time to help me.
Mountain Sage is great at the change of seasons if you spot a few flakes. (We
frequently see clients using too high a water temperature and scratching the scalp.
This happens when it cools off in the morning and clients start warming up their
shower/bathroom with the shower water. Too hot a water removes the normal fatty-acids and
is often the unseen cause of those unwanted dandruff flakes. We
recommend reducing the water temperature until it feels warm on your arm. Then
massage the scalp with your finger-tips not finger-nails and use Mountain Sage.) Check
your combs and brushes to be sure they are not scratching your scalp. Trying to
"scratch dandruff off your scalp" only causes more damaged
shin and more dandruff (just as I was doing years ago). Follow with a
Roffler conditioner. Mountain /sage is Not for color-treated hair and NOT ADDICTIVE
as other dandruff preparation you may have tried. Most of the folks who buy
Mountain Sage from us are using it because it "FEELS SO GOOD" after working out
or running! They buy a bottle just for the gym and use another shampoo at home.

PROTEIN NORMALIZING LOTION (The discovery of this product brings people into
the ROFFLER family)
A unique product which combines soft hold with light leave-in
conditioning properties for fine hair. Formulated with proteins, polymers and lanolin.
Adds body, volume and shine. Normalizing lotion is both a LEAVE IN CONDITIONER and a
STYLING AID. The hidden surprise in PNL is economical to use because it lasts so long.

GENTLE SHAVE: A unique
cream, not foam. Conditioning ingredients prevent nicks and irritation. The rich
helps the razor glide over the skin for a close
comfortable shave. Gentle Shave's mixture of organic protein and special skin-protecting
ingredients makes shaving a pleasure for both men and women.
A personal note and observations... I have used and sold Gentle Shave years. This
is a product that has no in-between. You either love it or hate it. The tube has a
toothpick diameter hole in the top. After showering I add some warm water to my face and
squeeze out 1/4 inch of Gentle Shave. I dot this on and when rubbed around it disappears.
IF YOU SEE IT YOU ARE USING TOO MUCH. I then use a disposable twin blade razor to shave.
If my fingers tell me that i miss a spot, I add water to REACTIVATE the Gentle Shave still
invisible on my face and re-shave. WHEN YOU FIRST START, USE YOUR CURRENT, - IN USE
- "DULL" RAZOR. I have had clients get out a new razor for their first Gentle
Shave shave. They all report their first shave was TOO close! Gentle shave will make
your old and dull razor seem sharp again. For me there is a bonus saving. My disposable
razors last 3 times longer than they do with other products. This product is so slippery I
can not use it to shave a customer in the shop with a straight razor. (The main trick to a
Shop Shave is stretching the skin tightly to help prevent nicks. This product is so
slippery I can not stretch a clients skin at all let alone tightly enough to shave him.)
One tube lasts me 18 months. Despite my efforts to convince some of our clients
they overuse the product consuming 3 tubes a year. But they won't use anything else. In my
opinion most places do not carry Gentle Shave because it takes too long for clients to use
it and re-buy. This slow inventory turnover means it takes a long time and a consistent
effort to establish a large enough clientele so they can justify keeping
Gentle Shave on the shelf. ... John
