Kaaral is an Italian based company with a self-described obsession and passion for service, relationships with their clients, and top-notch quality products. Perhaps the fact that they have been family owned since the mid-1980s has something to do with that!
Kaaral takes social responsibility seriously, and you’ll find options such as the Maraes line of permanent hair color which is free of ammonia, PPD, sulfate, paraben, and gluten. It also contains organic Manoi de Tahiti oil.
Of course, Kaaral has other products as well, including the well-known and respected Purify (a shampoo that protects your hair color), Baco, a low-ammonia hair color product, and more.
How much do we love Kaaral here at J. Scott Salon? Very much! Here’s a photo we took of it in our sand castle that Kaaral posted on their Facebook page!
Every single Sojourn product is infused with Keratin cashmere protein that rebuilds, moisturizes, conditions and protects the hair. Sojourn contains Cystine amino acid (which is what your hair cuticle is made of), which is one of the main building blocks of the Keratin complex. The combination of Keratin cashmere and cystine amino acid prevents hair breakage and split ends. Sojourn’s products also have pH range of 4.5 to 5.5.
Why is this important?
After a color service, the hair’s pH can be a 9, 10, or 11, to open the cuticle. After shampooing at the salon the pH is brought back down to a 4.5 to 5.5 range to close the cuticle. After spending money on a color service you don’t want to wash your color out because your products don’t fall in the pH range of 4.5-5.5, which keeps your cuticle closed.
