It’s no surprise with the move to more natural ingredients in the beauty world, that such simple ingredients would make their way into hair care too. Typically found in the kitchen instead of the salon, quinoa is the key ingredient to the Paul Mitchell’s new Ultimate Color Repair collection, available now.
What it does: Specially designed for colour-treated hair, the three-piece Paul Mitchell Ultimate Color Repair collection—including the Shampoo, Conditioner and Triple Rescue spray—aims to restore and protect hair with protein-packed quinoa. The lineup hydrates and repairs strands, while also protecting them from stressors that cause damage.
How it works: Quinoa is a superfood in the kitchen because of its protein content, and the same goes for hair care. The high protein found in quinoa helps rebuild damaged strands and make it more resilient to colour treatments and external factors. The collection also has ingredients like sugar cane and lemon peel that add shine to lacklustre strands, antioxidants that help protect hair, and combination of shea butter, jojoba and soybean oils to nourish and provide added hydration.
Best use: Work the Paul Mitchell Ultimate Color Repair Shampoo and Conditioner through wet hair and rinse. Shake and spray the dual-phase Ultimate Color Repair Triple Rescue mist into damp, towel-dried strands prior to heat-styling to protect strands from heat damage.
