Color Me Sunny: Kiehl’s Sunflower Color Preserving Hair Care Collection


Kiehl’s might as well be my beauty GPS because the brand rarely ever leads me astray. So, of course, I was stoked to try out Kiehl’s new Sunflower Color Preserving Hair Care line, which caters to women with color-treated hair, helping their tresses retain their vibrant color, maximizing luster, and helping to repair any damage caused by the chemicals involved in the dyeing process. The line consists of three products: Sunflower Color Preserving Shampoo, Sunflower Color Preserving Conditioner and Sunflower Color Preserving Deep Recovery Pak. All three products contain sunflower seed oil, a natural moisturizing agent, as well as apricot kernel oil, which is rife with essential fatty acids that nourish and condition, and vitamins B3, B5 and B6, which add shine.

Okay, but enough of the press release-y stuff. Let’s get to how these products perform. The Sunflower Color Preserving Shampoo washes hair gently, so that it won’t strip your color  — a huge plus considering how hair dye tends to fade and lose its sheen. Now, there’s a metaphor I like to use to describe the conditioner’s results — it’s a decidedly unglamorous metaphor, but it works, so please bear with me. Okay, imagine your hair is like dry angel hair pasta and the Sunflower Color Preserving Conditioner is the boiling water in which you’ll be cooking the pasta. Once that dry pasta is placed in that pot of boiling water, those noodles soften and develop a nice flexibility and a sense of movement — not to mention obtaining a warm golden hue. Well, that’s what happens with this conditioner — as you work it into your wet hair, you’ll almost feel the moisture penetrating the hair and making each follicle a bit plumper and smoother.
