ColorStrong Complex Additive


Step 1 of the 2 step colorpHlex system. Designed for Professional use. colorpHlex protects and strengthens hair during the color and bleach process, reducing damage and breakage. colorpHlex contains the ColorStrong Complex molecule, a copolymer of vegetable-derived protein and reactive silicone. The molecular weight of the vegetable protein is optimized for penetration into the hair—larger fragments penetrate the cuticle into the outer cortex, the smaller fragments penetrate more deeply into the inner cortex.  The reactive silicone portion of the molecule, silanetriol, crosslinks with the sulfonic acid residues on the hair protein, and with itself, to form a covalent bond with the hair for durable, long-lasting strengthening.
