As part of our Brand of the Month campaign, our Beauty Writer Shannon is here to take you through each range, so you can decide what’ll work best for your hair type.

Arguably one of the most popular ranges from the brand, the Metal Detox range currently consists of the L'Oreal Professionnel Metal Detox Anti-Metal Cleansing Cream Shampoo and L'Oreal Professionnel Metal Detox Anti-Deposit Protector Mask duo. Our hair can absorb excess copper metal through shower water when washing our hair. This can lead to breakage and premature fading of colour. The metal detox range was designed to prevent this from occurring so that you can maintain your hair’s health and vibrancy. There’s also a pre-treatment available during salon services, whilst the shampoo and mask are suitable for home use. This range is particularly useful if you live in a hard-water area, and it’s sulphate-free, too!
