Gemstone: must-have-at-home hair heroes

For all your clients’ fortifying, repairing, hydrating and shiny-hair needs, R+Co bring them two new products to use at home. Aimed to give your clients a helping hand in between salon appointments, the R+Co Gemstone Pre-Shampoo Color Protect Masque and Gemstone Ultra Shine Glossing Treatment have been created to provide all the TLC they need to keep colour vibrant and hair strong.

The masque has colour-treated, damaged hair in need of a boost of colour well and truly covered thanks to its colour protecting, conditioning and strengthening properties. White oak bark also helps to smooth and soften the hair as well as calm and comfort the scalp. It’s a pre-wash product so to apply, clients should dampen their hair and leave it on for 10-20 minutes before rinsing and then shampooing as normal. We love that hydrolysed soy protein penetrates the cuticle to replace proteins and improve elasticity – it’s basically like a super-healthy appetizer for your hair and we think your clients are going to love it.

If it’s glossy hair your clients want, the glossing treatment is the way to go. It’s applied to wet hair from root to tip and left on for five minutes before rinsing. The aim of it is to not only provide a high-shine finish but to enhance the hair’s vibrancy and protect colour too (which can also simply be translated to, win-win!) Properties like chromohance complex help to seal the hair shaft and hydrate to the max, while vitamins C and E protect the hair from free radical damage. It’s the sort of product your clients will try and wonder how they ever managed without it.
