Avoid the Fade with Color WOW Speed Dry Spray

There’s nothing better than that fresh from the salon, new color experience. Hair looks so rich, shiny, and so perfect. But, unless you take care of that fabulous new look, you’ll be disappointed in just a few short weeks or in some cases, even less. The gorgeous rich browns get muddy and dull looking. The beautiful shades of blonde suddenly look brassy and the vibrant reds just don’t look so vibrant anymore. We quickly find ourselves back in the salon, flipping through outdated magazines wondering if we need to get a second job or bank loan to help pay for the monthly investment.



Color WOW is have a must-have for color-treated hair. Speed Dry Blow Dry Spray dramatically reduces heat-styling time, so there is less physical stress on the hair and less heat exposure. This unique, alcohol-free blow dry spray counteracts porosity, keeping vital moisture inside the cuticle and forming a high-gloss, protective clear coat on the hair. It contains a blend of keratin proteins and silk amino acid and helps strengthen hair, while panthenol helps soften the hair for a healthier-looking texture.
Just shampoo and condition hair with Color Wow Security System as usual. Towel dry and generously spray Speed Dry blow-dry spray on hair and comb through. Blow-dry and finish.

The New LPG Soins Technique Skincare Range

Most women are looking for the perfect anti-ageing face cream and the most effective body slimming potions to have a youthful face and a slim toned body. With so many products on the market, it’s hard to find a range that really delivers results.
French beauty brand LPG, world leader in cellular stimulation, has developed a skincare line for looking younger and having supple firmer skin for the face and body.


Ludovic Loffreda, CEO of LPG Bella Concept LLC, says, “The New LPG Soins Technique skincare range works well with LPG’s existing Lipomassage and Endermolift treatments. Based on Biotechnology, the exclusive formulas have high concentrations of powerful, active ingredients, designed to naturally awaken dormant physiological processes especially those responsible for skin ageing and localized fat deposits. You can also bring the collection home to boost your beauty routine.”
The new range consists of five slimming and firming products and six anti-aging face products.

For facial beauty: Youth-boosting face range

To look 5-10 years younger, invest in LPG’s skincare products that contain a unique complex of three bioactive ingredients. These contain a potent dill weed extract to stimulate the protein synthesis needed to produce elastin, a combination of plant-based molecular moieties to firm
 the skin and optimize collagen production and a low molecular weight hyaluronic acid to restore the skin’s hydration balance to make it denser and smoother.
Developed specifically to stimulate the natural cellular activity of anti-ageing functions, the unique formula encourages collagen synthesis for firmer skin, elastin synthesis for more supple skin and production of hyaluronic acid for a replenished and smoother skin.
Some of the products include Tensing Firming Cream, Replenishing Redensifying Cream, Global Sculpting Cream, Radiance Energizing Serum and the Post-Treatment Collagen Mask.

For a beautiful body: Get firmer, toned skin

LPG has created five new body skincare products containing a unique complex of active ingredients, developed specifically to stimulate the natural cellular activity of slimming and anti-ageing functions. These products stimulate the natural release of stored fat and prevent new fat from accumulating, promote the natural synthesis of collagen and elastin for firmer, smoother skin.
The active ingredient of the unique complex in all LPG slimming skincare products is a next generation bioactive from the latest fundamental research on obesity. This red algae extract is a molecular cleanser that activates natural lipolysis (fat elimination) and inhibits lipogenesis (fat storage). Mixed with pure caffeine, it eliminates stored fat four times faster, offering proven visible results after only 28 days.
The bodycare line has been developed to get the perfect body and includes Lipo-Slim Gel, Smoothing Anti-Dimple Complex, Draining Detox Serum, Firming Contour Fluid and Glowing Revitalising Cream.
