Color Wow has launched Curl Wow, which has been formulated with new 'naked technology'. The profaxil-18 complex breaks down the large particles in oils so that they can easily flow down the hair shaft and penetrate the cuticle.

The collection includes a pre-shampoo treatment to prevent snags and knots, shampoo, conditioner, a serum, and a bi-phase leave-in spray.
Salon System has doubled the size of its Gellux Builder Gels collection with four new shades.
