ColourHerbe has been trusted by millions all over the world since it was launched in the 1970s by Michel Albergo. Wanting to devise a range of gentle hair colourants for his family, Mr Albergo sought his inspiration from his extensive experience of herbal extracts and their power to naturally condition the hair.
Realising that hair colouring did not require the aggressive power of Ammonia to rapidly swell open the hair cuticle, his was a gentler approach, choosing to gently yield the hair cortex open in order to deposit the colour pigments. This he achieved by combining hydrogen peroxide with plant oils, thereby creating a pH environment that allows the colour pigments to naturally, tone or replace, those already existing in the hair’s cortex.
The result – long lasting, beautifully toned shiny hair that is maintained without the use of silicone – based after-care products. The delicate hair cuticle is not damaged by Ammonia in the colouring process and so quick fix, with silicone-based conditioners are not required.
The hair is simply maintained with Aloe Vera – based shampoo and conditioner, free from SLS and parabens.
ColourHerbe is the ideal product for post chemotherapy patients as it is gentle on their delicate new hair as it regrows, and perfect for clients with sensitive skin and scalps.
ColourHerbe Shampoo and Cream Reconditioner
The ColourHerbe acid-balanced shampoo contains high quality herbal extracts and will stop further oxidation of the tint. At the time of removing the excess tint with Normalising Shampoo, the hair will feel very coarse to the touch. This is quite normal as there are no silicone fillers in Colour Herbe and the hairs’ cuticle will still be open.
The ColourHerbe Cream Reconditioner is, quite honestly, one of the best finishing conditioners you will ever use. With a pH of just 3.2 it is acidic enough to close the cuticle firmly having tinted with Colour Herbe.
Unlike other low pH finishing conditioners, the Colour Herbe Cream Reconditioner is NOT PROTEIN BASED, but is highly concentrated with vegetable moisturisers. During the tinting process there is no protein damage inflicted on the hair, consequently, to pack more proteins in would simply harden the hair texture.
The vegetable moisturisers become trapped under the cuticle as they close maintaining a soft and supple feel to the hair.
The shampoo and conditioner work in harmony with the colours, and have the added bonus that the conditioner works as a fabulous hand cream.
