Hair Care

By Stef Schwalb


Yes, finding the perfect present for the bride and groom isn’t easy. Though expensive China and table settings are lovely, why not consider a gift that can be used everyday and not just on special occasions? You won’t have to be super careful as you handle it, or keep it stored in a safe place. And on top of all that, this styling surprise is terrific for the maintaining the health of your tresses and making you look terrific. (Ok, so yes I admit if you actually gave a hair care line to your newly wedded friends they’d be less than happy with such an inexpensive option, but they would be seriously grateful once they got to a gorgeous Caribbean island and realized their hair might need some help and protection from the heat.) What I’m referring to here, in all seriousness, is the Keune Haircosmetics’ Ultimate Sun Care line. It’s perfect for honeymooners under heavenly heated skies and for the rest of the wedding guests who are hitting the beach or streets of NYC this summer.

The line consists of a Shampoo for Hair & Body, Protection Oil for Hair & Body, a Gelee Styling Spray, and an After Sun Hair Treatment. All of the moisture and protein-enriched products shield strands from the damaging effects of UV rays and help maintain and restore their vitality. The products incorporate essential proteins and minerals such as Provitamin B5, Biomins, Vitamin E, Squalane Oil, and UV filters to accomplish the task. So many elements take a toll on our ‘dos during the summer – sun, sea, chlorine, and wind – and the UV filters help protect hair from these predators, while the essential minerals and proteins nourish the strands and scalp.

The shampoo effectively removes styling products, sea water, and chlorine from hair and skin and gently moisturizes them. The protection oil protects skin and strands from the dryness and damage that can be caused by our time spent in direct sun. The hair gelee spray is a gel-style fluid that keeps strands covered against UV radiation. The after-sun hair treatment is a rinse- out conditioner that nourishes sun-stressed tresses to help revitalize their natural bounce and beauty.

Getting back to bride and groom…If they want to shine literally in spotlight for their special day, it might be good to check out another Keune hair product called Brilliant Gloss Spray. It’s an amazing style option for locking in shine and giving the strands and appearance of sleek and flawless. It’s a perfect partner for an updo! The gloss provides locks with a weightless, natural radiance. For more information on Keune offerings, the sun care line, and the Brilliant Gloss Spray, log on to
