Beauty Lab Eight brand-new products you just have to check out MIZANI Taking Control A new professional service from Redken creates smooth hair with customized results. W hether your clients are looking for stick-straight strands, frizz-free curls or silky waves, Redken’s new Shape Control permanent smoothing treatment can deliver the results they desire. Formulated without formaldehyde, the new service features the Kera-Shape complex that contains shaping agents for permanent smoothing or curling, cationic conditioners for moisture and shine, and emollients for control and manageability. Additional benefits include faster styling time; a reduction or elimination of frizz; and increased shine, softness and condition of the hair. The Urban Curls technique thermally reconditions hair so it feels softer, smoother and shinier and controls frizz, and stylists can customize the clients’ curl pattern with a curling iron; the Cold Smoothing service relaxes curls, reduces volume and smoothes out frizz; and the Safe Straightening treatment straightens hair (using a flat iron), thermally conditions strands and minimizes frizz and volume. “The majority of smoothing treatments, such as Brazilian keratin treatments, currently available in salons are tied to serious health concerns about the ingredients used in them, including the cosmetic-grade solution of formaldehyde called Formalin,” says Elena Marchettini, Redken assistant vice president of marketing. “Redken’s new Shape Control system features the benefits of a Brazilian keratin treatment but is formulated without formaldehyde.” redken.com —L.A. 44 American Salon January 2012 LE MIEUX Rx Complex Serum, a new anti-aging formula by Le Mieux, offers fi rming benefi ts and the brightening effects of a vitamin C serum.
