Thanks to our collaboration with the worldwide authority on metal, Ioannina University, we indentified a perfect molecule: Glicoamine.
It is the only active agent small enough to trap and neutralize metal inside the fiber. Fiber integrity is preserved, color is mastered, and the oxidant gets to fully do its job.

What do you like most about metaldetox ?

The protocol brings balayage to a pure result. It’s like hair gas been cleared out of its yellow undertone. Like this baby blonde all women crave for.

What is it like to use Metal Detox?

Hair is really coated. The brush adherence on hair is awesome. Plus, it’s easy to apply. It holds better on most fragile reflects, such as copper and strawberry blonde. Shades felt cooler. And most of all shininess was extreme.

What were you most impressed by?

I’m very impressed by the performance of this line-up. As a professional, I was also surprised by the product profitability. Using a small amount of product, it was possible to have a result with extreme protection even working with a high level of lightening.

How does the usage affect a service in the salon?

The usage has no impact on the service time or in the lightening texture, this crucial for us professionals.

How has Metal Detox changed how you color, balayage, and lightening hair?

I’ve never seen anything like this project before. From the first application I can see a big difference in the end result of every color I performed. The tonal clarity was drastically improved, as well as the overall condition of the hair.

How was metal in the hair affecting you?

As a colorist, metal in the water has been huge issue and a big frustration for years. In Massachusetts it affects over 75% of my clientele.


More than thousands of hairdressers have already tested it across the globe.

I didn’t tell her what it was, I said I have something new I’m trying. She loved the result, her hair was so so soft and I was finally able to transition her hair to a lighter, brighter, cooler blond. Thank-you I’ve enjoyed the discovery with this new innovation💕

L'Oréal Professionnel Thank-you. I found the protocol was straightforward, very user friendly and the great results were visible when I blowdried her hair. Her hair texture is naturally coarse and it can make the colour look uneven, it looked fresh and even after using this line☀️💕

My daughter's friend's hair (age 16) is very long and curly. Of course, she wants to be a level 1000 blonde with no breakage, gold or yellow. The final results were lighter and more even than we ever have gotten her. Thank you for letting me sample this ❤️❤️❤️
