What is Metal Detox?
Everyone has metal in their hair. It accumulates inside the hair fiber from environmental factors, erosion inside our pipes an even hard water. This can lead to the salon professional’s worst nightmare: When metals in the hair come into contact with oxidants during color, balayage and lightening services, it can result in breakage and unreliable color results.
L’Oréal Professionnel introduces a solution by developing a breakthrough, patented technology to combat this issue. Glicoamine—the only molecule thin enough to penetrate into the hair’s deepest fibers—attracts metals and detoxes hair to deliver 100% reliable color, 87% less breakage and is compatible with all color and lightener brands.
After performing over 102 instrumental tests in the labs with L’Oréal Professionnel scientists, conducting over 1000 tests on real clients and partnering with hairdressers to test the regimen under real salon conditions, L’Oréal Professionnel has developed a breakthrough range for pros by pros. Metal Detox detoxes metals from inside the hair fiber and protects hair to achieve a pure color result and provides the hair with vibrancy, shine, softness and nourishment between color services.

Charlotte Feltin. Head of L'Oréal Haircare Laboratories.
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.
