Chroma Absolu—A New Range For Serial Colorers Can Rely On

Love experimenting with color but don’t love damage? Chroma Absolu is the range you need to nourish your hair whatever look you choose.


For many, our hair is a huge part of our identity, of who we are and how we want the world to see us. Whether you are loyal to your color or change the shade on a whim, Chroma Absolu will support your hair in-salon and at home.

Chroma Absolu: The Benefits
Chroma Absolu is an efficient range that quickly and effectively tackles color-induced damage from fiber porosity that leads to accelerated color fade and hair oxidation that can leave hair with unwanted red and copper tones, to a change in hair texture including frizz, dullness and a roughness to the touch. Based on years of research, the foundation of Chroma Absolu contains a trilogy of acids—Tartaric, Amino and Lactic. This technology works to rebuild the strands, shield against environmental aggressors, whilst boosting shine and reducing frizz.

Meet the Chroma Absolu Range
The Chroma Absolu experience starts in salons with the post-color intense caring concentrate - Concentre Acide Aminé that will offer protection and nutrition and the Booster Resurfaçant, an intense caring booster for colored hair (great for resurfacing hair for ultimate softness and instant care).

To care for color treated hair, you can choose between two shampoos, Bain Chroma Respect for fine to medium hair and Bain Riche Chroma Respect for medium to thick hair. For gentle care, both are free from Silicones, Sulfates and Parabens, the formulas respect your hair by not stripping or fading the color.
