Our Professional Hair Care Intelligence Center picked up several interesting news stories ranging from skincare brands venturing into hair care to new and innovative product forms being introduced. Here are some that caught our attention the most:
1. Bobbi Brown Taps Into the Hair Care Arena
Bobbi Brown’s direct-to-consumer beauty company Jones Road has released its first-ever hair care product, Universal Hair Balm. It is an all-in-one lightweight styling cream to help increase shine, protect against heat damage, and fight frizz while strengthening, repairing, and conditioning the hair. Its main goal is to create a quick fix for consumers on-the-go to smooth away frizz and fly-aways, as well as create a preventative barrier against frizz when used on wet hair.
2. K18 Expands With Two New Hair Care Items
K18 has released two new shampoos featuring patented technology. Peptide Prep pH Maintenance Shampoo is a cleansing shampoo made from plant-derived surfactants, which gently break down and remove oil and dirt while protecting the hair’s natural moisture levels. Peptide Prep Detox Shampoo is a clarifying yet color-safe shampoo that washes out product build-up and preps the hair for maximum results.
