Renewal Remedies Treatment Experience

Ladies, please let me introduce you to the amazing ORIBE Renewal Remedies Transformative Professional Treatments that are only available in salons. In Zurich, you can book them at CHARLES AELLEN COMPANY. After having tried the procedure, I can absolutely recommend the treatment. My hair felt immediately much softer, more shiny and really really nice. I haven’t been to the hair dresser in 10 months and my strands truly needed some love. As I love my length, I was afraid that we have to cut a lot but thanks to the revolutionary salon treatment experience, Charles only needed to take off a little bit.

The Renewal Remedies Transformative Professional Treatments are custom blended by your hair stylist. These antidotes are designed to help restore the holistic health of hair, perfecting and protecting from root to tip. Your hair is transformed to lustrous, polished perfection, complete with movement and reflective shine for truly transcendent results.

First you start with the Foundations that are the base of Renewal Remedies treatments. Formulated with Bio-Synergy, a restorative sugar-protein complex, Renewal Remedies fortifies the inner structure of hair while restoring the damaged outer layer by creating a shield that locks in essential moisture and smoothes the cuticle. Designed to address the full spectrum of hair concerns, each treatment improves texture and provides intense hydration while increasing vibrancy, smoothness, and strength.

4x Smoother.* – 4x Softer.* – 74% more manageable.*

After that you choose the Amplifiers.

For damaged or weak hairStrengthening Amplifier

Strengthen the inner structure of hair.
Prevent breakage.
Improve elasticity.
Fortify strands.
The Strengthening Amplifier, formulated with a protective blend of 12 amino acids and a patented fortifying complex, penetrates the cortex to help strengthen the inner structure of hair while preventing breakage. The Strengthening Amplifier and Foundation work together to significantly improve elasticity and the tensile strength of hair with each application.

For frizzy or curly hairSmoothing Amplifier

Improve smoothness, softness and manageability.
Seal in moisture.
Reduce frizz.
Protect against humidity.
The Smoothing Amplifier, formulated with a specialized cross-linked polymer and a hydrating marine complex, forms a protective barrier on the hair fiber to seal in moisture and reparative nutrients while locking out humidity. The Smoothing Amplifier and Foundation work together to deliver superior smoothness, softness and control while significantly reducing frizz, even in high humidity.

For color-treated hairColor Retention Amplifier

Extend the life of color through multiple washes.
Shield from oxidative stress.
Restore the protective outer layer of strands.
Increase vibrancy of color.
The Color Retention Amplifier, formulated with color-lock technology and a natural luminosity-enhancing antioxidant, helps extend the life of color while shielding from oxidative stress. The Color Retention Amplifier and Foundation work together to restore the protective outer layer of strands, while creating a noticeable difference in prismatic vibrancy and shine of color through multiple washes.

Good to know is that the bottles are made from 100% Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) plastic and are recyclable, with the PCR being domestically sourced and produced in the United States. The applicator bottles and applicator tips were developed to be reused multiple times. They can easily be rinsed, dried and used at least ten times.

I went for the Foundation for Fine to Medium Hair in combination with the Strengthening Amplifier. After the shampoo, the mixed product is applied and is left for around 10-15 minutes. Afterwards it is washed out and you can feel and see the result immediately.
I am truly happy. Thank you, Charles!
