In life, opposites sometimes attract.
In hair color, they always do... and that’s what leads to staining around the hairline. Most hair color has a positive charge(+), while hair has a negative ionic charge (-). This is what helps hair color stick to your hair. But our skin, like hair, has sites that are negatively charged, so hair color is attracted to skin as well... and you’re left with ugly stains! That’s why +Repelle™ with positively charged Pretectin-22™ has dual-action:
- First, +Repelle is attracted to the negatively charged sites in skin, neutralizing them and creating a physical barrier to the hair color;
- And second, it actually repels the positively-charged hair color itself.
USE: No need to lather, rinse or repeat. What more could you ask for?
1. BEFORE applying hair color… simply glide the +Repelle Skin Shield Wand along your hairline, ears, neckline, eyebrows or wherever you get color stains. Then color your hair as you normally would.
2. AFTER you’re done, simply wipe or wash off +Repelle when you remove the dye. It comes off easily, leaving skin soft, clean and stain-free!
+Repelle works best used BEFORE hair coloring. But if you forget to use it before and end up with stains, try +Repelle as a remover. It can often help solubulize the dye and take much of the stain away!
Let’s face it, hair color chemicals can be pretty harsh stuff. Rest assured, +Repelle is made from “good stuff” to be gentle, and protect from hair color stains and irritation. All +Repelle ingredients have been used before in skin care products and are known to be safe and effective. +Repelle Skin Shield Wand contains 99.7% active ingredients, 6x more than most professional salon barrier lotions which are primarily water
-Pretectin-22™ which is derived from the rapeseed plant, a biodegradable ingredient which is the 3rd most common source of vegetable oil after soy and palm
-shea butter for barrier protection and for moisturizing
-aloe for its reputed healing properties
-Vitamin E for anti-oxidant power (which is particularly appropriate for hair color since it utilizes oxidizing dyes)
-Petrolatum, one of the most recommended ingredients by dematologists for skin protection and moisturization, and more!
