Kérastase Reflection has changed; we spoke to Kérastase about the range relaunch and exciting new product Touche Chromatique.
With trends such as ombré, rainbow, copper and blonde firmly here to stay, more and more of us are choosing to colour our hair. And when it comes to protecting colour and preserving health and shine, Kérastase Reflection is our go-to range.
This month Kérastase reveal 2 exciting updates:
An improved formula for the Reflection range
An exciting new product: Touche Chromatique ‘ink-in-care’ pen
Kérastase Reflection Formula Update
Why the change? Well, the new Kérastase Reflection range now promises to protect and prolong colour for up to 40 days, around the average time between salon visits. The new formula also has an ‘anti-deposit’ effect that protects hair against the environment, including water particles (the main cause of colour fade). This means better, even colour and shine.
The number one cause of colour fade is actually water itself. In addition, chlorine and calcium in the water also strip hair colour
|The Science Behind The New Reflection Range:
Key ingredients in the Reflection range are rice bran oil (adds shine), zinc gluconate (helps stabilise colouring agents in the hair shaft), UV filters and vitamin E (protects against oxidisation).
Newly added is a formula to neutralise the 3 water particles that speed up colour fade: copper, calcium and chlorine. It also creates an anti-deposit effect at the hair surface.
Packaging Updates – how the new core range differs:
Shampoo: Bain Chroma Captive becomes Bain Chromatique.
There’s also a new Bain Chromatique Sulfate-free shampoo.
Bain Chroma Riche becomes Bain Chromatique Riche.
Conditioner: Fondant Chroma Captive becomes Fondant Chromatique.
Masks: Masque Chroma Captive becomes Masque Chromatique Fins (for fine hair). Masque Chroma Riche becomes Masque Chromatique Epais (for thick hair).

Is Kérastase Reflection Your Range?
The Reflection range is for all colour-treated hair. However, you may have been using the Kérastase Resistance Therapiste range for damage caused by over-treatment. If so, and if your coloured hair has now recovered and is in a healthy state, then Reflection is your range.
