Keeping colored hair healthy and shiny can be a challenge. Clients want to maintain beautiful fresh color, but often coloring the hair leads to damage and breakage. ColrpHlex was developed to help provide a solution to this common color treated hair dilemma. The product uses a naturally derived vegetable protein molecule that penetrates the hair, reinforcing bonds during the color and bleach process. According to clinical trials, a small amount of ColorpHlex added to hair color or bleach makes hair up to 4X stronger.
