Joining a line-up of premium styling products, OSiS+ Keep It Light fulfils the need for low-residue hold, so that stylists and salon clients alike can satisfy their desire for effortless, touchable styling.

This is OSiS+ lightest and driest hairspray, combining very light & workable hold with up to 230°C/450°F heat protection. OSiS+ Keep It Light was inspired by backstage styling secrets, where applying a hairspray before using heated styling tools increases their effect. This technique is no longer just reserved for session stylists. With the added need for lighter styling solutions, a multi-benefit formulation is the answer both in the salon and at home.

Developed with Compressed Technology, the hairspray's highly-concentrated* formula achieves the desired result with a with roughly half the amount of active formula and propellant per usage**. It also improves sustainability by reducing the packaging, meaning waste and less emissions when transporting.

The addition of KEEP IT LIGHT to the OSiS+ hairspray collection creates a comprehensive range of hairsprays with a complete array of hold levels.

The new BLONDME Care line-up includes stronger neutralisation than ever before, dedicated purification to brighten blonde hair, 3D Bonding Technology and hero finishing products for all hair types – from fine-to-normal and normal-to-coarse.
