Keune Haircosmetics North America Renews Their Care Range

Sometimes hair needs a little help to make sure it looks and feels perfect. But one size does not fit all. Each client has her own challenges—from damaged to oily locks and from sun-stressed to color-faded strands—and most people have more than one concern. To solve each of those problems, Keune Haircosmetics North America returns to founder Jan Keune’s scientific roots in the pharmacy to relaunch Care, a range of stylist-prescribed nourishing shampoos, indulgent conditioners, healing treatments and results-focused stylers to strengthen, repair and create the healthiest hair and scalp possible.

5 Essential Minerals: Central to the Care formulas is Keune’s patented Essential Mineral Complex, developed according to long-established scientific practices and principles.These five minerals—zinc, copper, silicum, iron and magnesium—work together to nourish the scalp and strengthen and repair the hair.

  • Zinc is an antioxidant that stimulates the development of new cells.
  • Copper promotes hair growth by boosting the formation of disulfide cross linkages in keratinization.
  • Silicum plays a huge role during the formation of collagen and connective tissues that make up hair.
  • Iron is vital for protein formulation and acts as a carrier of oxygen throughout the body, energizing the scalp and leaving hair glossy.
  • Magnesium sustains energy production and ensures a healthy mineral balance.

New packaging: The entire Keune Care range, including new and existing products, has been packaged in beautiful, fresh, apothecary-inspired white bottles reminiscent of those in Jan Keune’s pharmacy in Amsterdam.

“The sleek new apothecary-inspired packaging reflects the Keune family’s almost 100-year heritage in the professional beauty industry,” says Rachael Hoffman, Vice President of Marketing and Brand Development for Keune Haircosmetics North America. “It looks gorgeous on salons’ shelves and backbars and reflects the high quality of the products inside the bottles.”

The Keune Care Consultation: To help stylists diagnose each client’s scalp and hair conditions and then prescribe the care regimen to address those specific needs, Keune has created a Consultation Reference Card. It considers the scalp and hair’s conditions and the hair’s color and texture, then walks stylists through four steps—Consult, Cleanse, Condition, Complete—to design a unique, custom regimen for each client. The Keune Care line is formulated to be mixed and matched between segments, so you can offer each client a custom solution. Simply choose the shampoo based on the client’s primary hair or scalp concern, choose the conditioner or mask based on the client’s primary or secondary hair concern, then complete the regimen with products that best address the client’s concerns and desired look.

Keune Care includes 11 problem-solving segments:

For the scalp

  • Derma Activate rejuvenates thinning hair and stimulates growth. This segment for temporary hair loss features Rejuvenator Technology, which penetrates the scalp cells, ensuring that liposomes gradually transfer essential minerals, biotin and hair growth stimulants like takanal and caffeine.
