REF Stockholm Sweden

I was in the salon, practically in tears. My ‘stylist’ had taken my hair from bombshell blonde to a soft sexy blonde.  That proceeded to turn blonde, with patches of orangey blonde, and spots of dark brown with random AF dark brownish green ends.  Then my hair started to break off.  To say I was having hysterics would be a massive understatement.

My ‘stylist’ attempted to ‘fix’ it as best she could. Which was to clarify it and say she couldn’t do anymore.  Then walked me to the door and scurried off.  I was completely heartbroken.  My hair is now blondish with large dark patches.

I feel ugly.  Beyond ugly. I have never realized how much value I put on my hair until it was destroyed.  I was stopped at the door to the salon by another stylist.  Or should I say, angel?  She handed me a small bottle of REF Maintainer Proplex Hair Strengthener.  “Take this home, put it on your hair and it will help.”

This Vegan, Cruelty-free product is produced in Sweden and sold only in professional salons.  Providing UV protection, without Parabens or Sulfates.

The packaging on all of their products is charmingly minimalistic.  This product features Quinoa proteins, Aloe, Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil,  Panthenol, Glycerine, Sunflower Oil, Wheat amino acids and it smells heavenly like coconut.

There are no Dimethicones or Silicones, there is no artificial Fragrance or Parfumes.  Almost no information about this company available on the web.  A visit to their website provided very little.

As for the strengthener itself.  It smells wonderful.  The consistency is thick yet, it didn’t feel as though it was weighing my hair down.  I am still experiencing quite a bit of breakage, but my hair feels soft, and this product gives me hope of salvaging something useful from this experience.   Prices will vary from salon to salon.  I received this product at no cost, and I will definitely look into trying other products from this company.
