Guerlain drops a restorative haircare line
Following Guerlain’s return to the haircare category (an area previously untouched by the brand since 1970) with the unveiling of the Abeille Royale Scalp & Hair Youth Oil-in-Serum last year, the French beauty brand is pressing onwards in the realm of hair with the launch of a full-on Abeille Royale haircare range this month. Unveiling four core products — a Revitalising & Fortifying Care Shampoo, Repairing & Replumping Conditioner, Radiance & Repair Mask and a luxuriously designed hairbrush — this product line aims to strengthen the scalp and restore signs of youthfulness in the hair fibre by tapping into revolutionary Black Bee Honey Repair Technology. Four powerhouse types of honey and four hair-loving active ingredients sourced by Guerlain Research combine to deliver this exclusive technology which visibly transforms hair straight from the root. Pretty sweet, right?
