NEW YORK, Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- L'Oreal Paris, global hair authority and R&D leader, is proud to build on its 100 years of beauty heritage with the launch of a new franchise five years in the making – Advanced Haircare. Designed to help American women change the life of their hair, this clinically-tested1 collection, on shelves now at mass retailers, consists of five tailored modules with shampoos, conditioners and hair treatments to deliver instant results and lasting transformation1. With seven luxurious and effective treatments at the center of Advanced Haircare, L'Oreal Paris is encouraging women to adopt a three-step haircare routine – shampoo, condition and treat – to help hair look gorgeous.
As a means to introduce America to Advanced Haircare, L'Oreal Paris is giving away 1 million product samples exclusively on the brand's Facebook page (facebook.com/lorealparis)2 on Tuesday, January 15th. Known for its red carpet and get-the-look expertise, L'Oreal Paris is kicking off this large-scale giveaway at the start of the most glamorous time of the year – awards season.
"With 1.7 million U.S. fans and over 14 million fans globally, Facebook has become the definitive location for women who love L'Oreal Paris to share, discuss and learn about the latest in beauty products. It's great that L'Oreal Paris has chosen to utilize Facebook to give away these new Advanced Haircare products to 1 million of their biggest fans," says Facebook Vice President of Global Marketing Solutions and head of U.S. Sales, Tom Arrix.
THE SCIENCE AND KEY INGREDIENT BEHIND THE NEW LINE:
L'Oreal Paris developed the five modules of Advanced Haircare based on the top haircare concerns of American women, as shown by extensive market research conducted by the brand: Total Repair 5 for damaged hair, Smooth Intense for frizzy hair, Power Moisture for dry hair, Color Vibrancy for color-treated hair and Triple Resist for breakage-prone, weak hair.
All five modules feature Arginine-K Complex™. The Arginine-K Complex™ in the five individual modules is paired with customized actives that tailor each formula for particular hair needs and types – ultimately delivering instant results and lasting transformation, when used regularly1.
A NEW HAIRCARE REGIMEN: ONE WITH THREE STEPS
Although hair is a woman's crowning glory, many American women rush through their hair routine with a quick shampoo and condition. L'Oreal Paris is encouraging women to add a third and critical step to their haircare routine by adding the use of treatments. With ingredients that penetrate the hair, treatments not only give strands a polished, finished look, but also help keep hair feeling and looking healthy.
As more and more American women are exposing hair to chemical treatments and styling with multiple hot tools, the use of treatments is now more crucial than ever. Hair treatments have already caught on abroad as treatment usage is more than double outside of the U.S., according to L'Oreal Paris research.
To personalize the regimen, the treatments within Advanced Haircare are innovative and comprised of user-friendly forms including two rinse-out masks, three lightweight leave-in sprays, a serum and a creme formula. These tailor-made solutions bring premium textures to the haircare aisle.
"Right now, U.S. women believe that only skincare warrants an ongoing regimen. They see hair as a quick fix, when really, hair deserves and needs the same multi-step approach as skincare to be at its best," says Karen T. Fondu, President of L'Oreal Paris USA. "Behind Advanced Haircare is a technology with highly efficacious formulas to meet the specific needs of U.S. consumers."
Actress Lea Michele, L'Oreal Paris spokesperson for Advanced Haircare's Total Repair 5 line, weighs in on her personal experience with treatments: "I've learned from the hairstylists I've worked with that hair treatments are the most important step in a haircare regimen." She continues, "Treatments put all of these ingredients into your hair. You can really see and feel a difference in your hair right away."
