Guests included consumer and trade press, as well as influencers @curltureuk and @_supriyya, all of whom turned out to learn all about the new line, which is divided into three categories: Lock and Seal, PRISM and NOIR. The line embraces global texture and uses ingredients from the Indian Ocean island of Seychelles, Kandasamy's home country. As such, delegates from the Seychelles High Commission were also on hand to support the fledgling brand's foray into the international market. 

RIKOKO Founder Richy Kandasamy with Rebel Beauty Brands Managing Director Alastair Gourley"The evening was incredible," exclaims Kandasamy, who explains that he was thrilled with how guests were able to learn about how the line cares for every hair texture. "At its core, our line is here to heal, seal and shine."
