NEW YORK — Dark & Lovely has introduced the Hair Hydrator, a daily moisturizing hair and scalp mist infused with rice water, rice bran oil and rice protein.
“The past year has reinforced the idea that hair care is self-care. Given protective styles continue to be worn and loved by our consumers, we are launching a new innovation from our Dark & Lovely Protective Styles collection, – Hair Hydrator. It’s an easy way to care for the scalp and hair while wearing a protective style, that isn’t limited to Self-Care Sundays,” said Kristen Blandon, vice president of marketing at SoftSheen-Carson, “Our Protective Styles collection already has proven solutions to cleanse, relieve tension and detangle, and we can’t wait to see how people respond to the addition of 24-hour hydration and strength found in Hair Hydrator.”
Dark & Lovely introduced the Protective Styles Collection, which includes the Tension Tamer, Cleansing Water, Hair Refresher and Detangling Cream, in early 2020 to make every major phase of caring for braids, weaves, wigs, locs and natural hair, easier. Dark & Lovely has enlisted celebrity hairstylist Kendall Dorsey, who works with artists including Solange, Nicki Minaj, Yara Shahidi, and Alicia Keys, to support the campaign.
“Protective styles can be super pampering and beneficial for your hair when handled with care. That’s why it’s been so important for me to find products that I can rely on to keep my clients’ hair whether in braids, locs or twists full of shine and moisture while giving them the ultimate comfort,” said Dorsey. “With protective styles so in demand, the Hair Hydrator has quickly become my holy grail.”
The Dark & Lovely for Protective Styles Collection is formulated with peppermint, avocado oils and aloe vera to provide moisture and restore shine and contains no parabens, no mineral oils and no dyes. The line is now available for purchase at Walmart, Target, Rite Aid and Amazon for a suggested retail price of $6.99 each.
