New releases from beauty manufacturers
C-system, a performance-savvy series of pH-balanced, color-safe products, utilizes vitamins A, C, and E to defend hair from environmental onslaught caused by free-radical damage. The line includes C-system Clean Shampoo, Hydrating Shampoo, Moisture Complex, Reconstructing Treatment, Styling Conditioner, Texture Lotion, Conditioning Mist, and Finishing Paste and contains a synthesis of the finest organic plants, herbs, and whole food derivatives.

The new Extreme line is reformulated with the exclusive Interbond Conditioning System, which delivers a patented 3D Repair Complex to fortify the hair. Proteins penetrate deeply to build internal strength, ceramides enter the cuticle layer to reinforce structure, and natural lipids resurface the hair to leave the cuticle flat, shiny, and smooth. The line contains Extreme Shampoo, Conditioner, Anti-Snap, CAT Protein Reconstructing Technology, and the new Deep-Fuel Durable Strengthening Treatment. (800) REDKEN-8.
SwitchTrix is a new dual-action wax/gel combo that allows the stylist to create altered states with one hit to the dispenser. On dry hair, SwitchTrix acts like a wax and enables a fractured, separate, defined effect. On wet, it can be used to mold or sculpt with soft control. The Switch It Up! Salon Intro Kit contains five SwitchTrix mega pumps (plus one free), a stylist station display unit, 15 client brochures, updated inserts for the Trix of the Trade binder, a SwitchTrix product ID card, and an easel card.
