Redken’s Sea Change
For those who work in the biz, the name Redken is synonymous with innovation. Season after season, its creative consultant, Guido Palau, uses the comprehensive line of styling agents, shampoos, and conditioners to design some of the most gorgeous—and often gravity-defying—hair looks at fashion week. But up until now, Palau has been working without one of the coiffing world’s most beloved tools: salt spray. The professional product line aims to change that, though, with its latest release, Nature’s Rescue, a four-piece paraben-, sulfate-, and silicone-free range that acts as the brand’s most green-leaning offering yet. Included in the lineup are a detox shampoo that functions as a daily clarifier, a cooling deep conditioner, and the Radiant Sea Spray—which is fitting for a collection inspired by the ocean and enriched with plant and marine extracts. The other standout is the Refining Sea Polish, an exfoliator for your hair that is designed to remove build up and add shine by buffing the hair shaft with pumice extracts. Applied to damp tresses in the shower, the idea is to work the product through the lengths by gently rubbing it between palms. It’s formulated for all hair types, too, so even color-treated locks can get in on the deep-cleaning action.
