Like a first aid kit for bright strands, Oribe’s Radiance and Repair Treatment with restorative proteins, plant extracts and purple pigment not only gets the color just right, it also repairs damage and defends against free radicals for smooth-as-silk strands.

Actually, we’d rate this spray with silk protein and acai higher if we could because aside from preventing color from fading, it just generally keeps hair healthy by boosting moisture and strengthening strands.

We could literally sing the praises of this Olaplex treatment forever, but we’ll spare your ears (you’re welcome) and instead hit you with the highlights: the vegan formula—without parabens, sulfates and phthalates, mind you—is like a deep conditioning mask for hair. Apply before you shower to deeply restore strands and protect color.
No dumb blonds here—only the ones with brilliant color thanks to stylers like the Miracle Filler from Pureology. It’s made to fill in porous hair to strengthen and protect against heat damage and violet toning busts brassiness.
