The ingredient that changed it all

Known as the “invention,” the Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate ingredient allowed professionals to reach new heights in color & care. Hair wasn't just healthier; it took on a completely different quality — blondes were brighter, brunettes more radiant, and redheads more vibrant.
