Salon Services: Muted Light with IGORA Muted Desert

With cool and elegant beige tones staying firmly in the limelight IGORA Muted Desert offers a colour palette inspired by the chalky and calm landscapes of the desert.

Available in both IGORA’s permanent (IGORA ROYAL) and demi-permanent (IGORA VIBRANCE) assortments, for dual application, IGORA Muted Desert counteracts unwanted yellow undertones during the processing time to provide the most neutral and cool beige colour results!
