From gray coverage to global color — if you’re someone who hates the first sign of their roots growing in, chances are you’re a regular at the salon. As someone who is dedicated to a seamless color, you understand the time it takes to invest in your look and probably appreciate any advancement made toward making the process more efficient. While application methods and the speed of your stylist can ease the time spent in the salon, one of the biggest ways to shorten your salon appointments is with the release of new Redken Color Gels Lacquers 10 Minute — the latest way to get a root touch-up in less time!

Redken Color Gels Lacquers 10 Minute!

An extension to the Color Gels Lacquers — permanent liquid hair color with all the shine of Shades EQ — new Redken Color Gels Lacquers 10 Minute is now available for quick root touch up appointments with all the same benefits. 

Deciding between the two formulas simply comes down to timing. 

Stylists will choose Redken Color Gels Lacquers 10 Minute for quick root touch up appointments with less than 8 weeks (or 1-inch) of regrowth or to squeeze in add-on and walk-in appointments. This incredible formula quickly covers grays, won’t risk over-processing and delivers impeccable shine.

Redken Color Gels Lacquers is ideal for stylists when more specialized applications are needed. A stylist may choose this when they want extra time to complete a service, for virgin color applications, global color applications, color corrections or when root growth is over 1-inch. 


How It Will Change Your Routine

Depending on your hair type, color and lifestyle — your stylist will determine which service is ideal for your finished look. If you are a candidate for Redken Color Gels Lacquers 10 Minute, this process can streamline your appointment times and allow you to fit in color appointments during times you might not have been able to in the past, like your lunch break! 

The ability to cover roots in less time gives you more freedom in your daily routine and is a great reason to try out shades or services you wouldn’t normally wear because of their upkeep. 

Pair your Redken Color Gels Lacquers 10 Minute with a blowout, or simple wash and wear appointments. The ability to be squeezed in easily and more often opens your style up to new possibilities and new shades. 



If Redken Color Gels Lacquers 10 Minute is an ideal service for you, try and keep your appointments consistent to avoid any issues and ensure ideal coverage. In addition to Redken Color Gels Lacquers 10 Minute, consider asking your stylist to also add a Redken Shades EQ gloss every other appointment to add shine and refresh tone throughout mid-lengths and ends. A Shades EQ gloss is a quick and easy demi-permanent color that can add a hint of color while also creating endless shine and improved condition. 


At Home Color Upkeep

Anytime hair color is part of your style, your home care routine needs to be adjusted. To keep color looking its best year-round, swap out your shampoo and conditioner for a color-specific formula like Color Extend Magnetics or Color Extend Brownlights. In addition to this, pick up Redken Oil For All — this lightweight oil aids in heat protection, adds condition and improves manageability, not to mention the shine it adds to your hair will help improve the look and feel of your shade.
