I was good friends with a stylist a while ago who "owned" a Tony & Guy salon. He told me that the products that are TIGI that are sold at Target, Fred Meyer, etc. (basically anywhere that is not a professional salon or does not have a professional salon in the store) are often counterfeit. He said that TIGI would send the managers out to purchase any counterfeit products, sometimes with slight printing differences - like not having the R in a circle for registered trademark, or something like that....

Anyway, he also said that those products look weird sometimes, like the color has separated - another tip off that they aren't the real deal.

I know there have been some posts about TIGI MM shampoo and a few other products. I just thought I'd pass that along.
