In the ever-evolving world of self-expression and beauty, the art of hair colour has become a powerful means of showcasing individual style and personality. As we embrace an array of captivating shades, the importance of preserving and safeguarding these applied hair colours and the hair against the elements such as UV rays, heat, pollutants, etc. cannot be overstated. This brings us to the idea of keeping your hair colour & hair intact – a mix of smart science and artistic care.

A Glimpse into Hair Colour Evolution

The concept of appying hair colour dates back centuries. Ancient civilizations like the Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans had their unique methods of colouring hair using natural ingredients such as henna, indigo, and various plant extracts. The goal wasn't merely aesthetic; it often signified social status, rituals, or cultural expressions.

From the opulent displays of Ancient Egyptians to the dramatic shifts of the punk era, hair colour has always been a canvas for self-expression. However, these early methods often lacked longevity and protection, leaving hair vulnerable to the unforgiving elements.

Fast forward to modern times, and we find the hair colour industry experiencing remarkable growth. Yet, along with this creative evolution, comes the challenge of sustaining the brilliance and vitality of these colours and also the health of your hair over time. UV rays, pollution, and the very act of washing and styling hair can contribute to fading and loss of vibrancy.

Understanding Hair Colour’s Challenges

Your hair color isn't just about looks – it's about making sure it stays as stunning as when you first had it done. The usual hair colours that are scattered widely across the market, offer instant result but with short term and hair damaging effects. The colours often fade away due to regular washing of hair, styling tools and exposure to UV rays. It's not just about appearances either; it affects structural integrity of your hair, impacting both its appearance and strength.

Hair colour is a growing trend and most colours that are applied to hair are highly susceptible to fading due to UV light. With increase in the use of hair colorants globally, hair care products manufacturers are targeting this market with shampoos, conditioners and sprays that are intended to prevent the fading of colour and repair overall damage to hair due to UV radiation, heat, and chemical treatment. UV filters are being developed specifically for protecting hair colour from the damaging effect of the sun. The water-soluble UV absorbers that are currently used are not retained by hair in rinse-off formulations. Given the limitations of current formulations and the UV filters, Galaxy Surfactants designed a UV absorber that would be more efficacious in terms of protecting hair color and hair from UV radiations. The goal was not just to increase the efficacy of UV absorber but to impart good conditioning effect simultaneously. With these thoughts Galaxy surfactants developed a multifunctional hair color protector ‘GalHueShield HCS.’

GalHueShield HCS is a highly substantive ingredient which offers good UV absorbing properties along with effective conditioning.
