Clairol: Rich in History, Hues, and Haircare!

Not all beauty brands have the power to rewire the way society thinks. Back when women were expected to steer clear of radical changes in their looks and lifestyles, Clairol encouraged them to express themselves freely by coloring their hair in a way that resonated with them.

The brand believes in the empowering force of liberating femininity from the limits of expectations and norms - whether it’s changing hair color in the conservative post-war era or using innovative products to highlight a person’s uniqueness in the age of social media.

Ninety years after it was founded, Clairol continues to create products anchored in its foundational values of challenging norms that put limits on women, giving us more ways to see life in full color!

From a Family Business to a World-Famous Brand

‘Nice women DO color their hair.’ 

Clairol is known for its trailblazing campaigns through the decades, inspiring confidence and liberation in women. Its message - It’s not a bad thing to express your kind of beauty!

With an open mind, many people imbibed the idea. The result? A brand rooted in women's empowerment, overcoming the odds, and gaining a strong, global following. A brand that has become synonymous with high-quality hair color systems. Growing from a family business to an industry leader, the brand has successfully created a wide range of hair color treatments and care products that help women look and feel great by embracing who they are.

One of its most popular product lines is the Shimmer Lights Collection, a violet-hued formulation that enhances the brightness and radiance of blonde, gray, and white hair tones and highlights. They combat dullness and brassiness and provide a shimmery and reflective finish to the hair. Check out these products from this innovative collection and discover new ways to give your light-colored hair color fullness and shine without weighing it down. 

Clairol lets you put the spotlight on your hair with every wash! This award-winning, protein-rich, color-enhancing shampoo is a pro when it comes to shine and color vitality. 

It works to eliminate the unwanted warm yellow or orange tones that dull and sully light-colored hair. It revitalizes faded highlights, maintains an ash-toned color, and adds shine without residue, both in natural or color-treated hair.

Shimmer and moisture are always the goal, girls! Especially in hot and humid weather when hair tends to look parched and lifeless, causing its color to lose its luster. 

This protein-rich blend of emollients, moisturizers, and color refreshers coats each strand with nourishment as it revitalizes faded highlights and adds radiance to gray hair. It also eliminates brassiness and adds a shiny finish without residue.  

Every amazing hair color result needs a good base to build upon. This white powder lightener gives hair color experts greater creative control over the lightening process. It reinforces precision coloring, achieving the right shade and sheen. 

How? By safely lightening the existing color, it achieves even and consistent tightening across the hair, provides versatility in application, and creates a good base for a more vibrant showing of the chosen color!
