Getting Schooled with R+Co


There is a new kid on the hair-care playground who is schooling all the others on what hair-care products should be, R+Co.

Founded by Howard McLaren (former Creative Director of Bumble & Bumble and Tony & Guy), Garren (one of the world’s go-to hair and style experts) and Thom Priano (considered one of the worlds top mens groomers) R+Co is a collective of some of the most forward-thinking, rule-bending hairstylists in the business. Composed of some of the top editorial, salon stylists and educators—with a combined century of hairdressing knowledge and experience—they work together in collaboration to develop and test each product in the field.  Every product is treatment-oriented, with the health of the hair and scalp a top priority.   Every detail is a collaborative effort from the stylish packaging and the fantastic fragrances each product features to the ingredients at the very core of the line. All products are formulated without parabens, sulfates (SLS or SLES), mineral oil and petrolatum. They are all vegetarian, cruelty-free, gluten-free and color-safe!  It is all about creating the perfect foundation to make styling easier and hair healthier.

I am completely OBSESSED with R+Co’s Gemstone Color Shampoo and Conditioner.  This fade-fighting duo preserves and prolongs the life of your shade while bringing shine and softness back to color treated strands.

Formulated with natural goodies like Hibiscus Extract (protects the hair, while softening and conditioning), Pea Extract (helps to preserve hair’s color and protect against discoloration), Rice Extract (smoothes the hair and retains moisture, adding high shine)  and Golden Root Extract (provides antioxidant protection and combats thermal stress).  

The Shampoo and Conditioner left my hair soft, easy to blow out and to top it off for once my shower didn’t look like a scene from a horror movie with red color everywhere.  I had minimal color wash out after use which is a sheer miracle for me! It smells FANTASTIC- a delish blend of citrus, eucalyptus, green tea and crisp amber.  In fact I can’t stop sniffing my hair.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this hair-care dynamic duo!
