Award-winning hairdresser and colorist Jason Lee established Mela & Kera earlier this year as the vanguard of a new age in high-end hair care. Seven items, including cleansers and style aids, from the brand’s inaugural collection aim to restore hair’s natural suppleness and health.
The name Mela & Kera is an homage to the building blocks of beautiful, healthy hair: the pigment melanin—responsible for hair color—and the protein keratin, which is used to aid the hair’s shine and structure. The ingredients shield hair against the damaging effects of heat styling, dyeing, chemical processing, and the environment, leaving it silky smooth and radiantly healthy.
“Mela & Kera represents a new generation in high-performance hair care. I’ve spent more time in hair salons than anywhere else in my life. Working with so many different hair types—and seeing first-hand the wide variety of hair needs—is what drove me to create this line,” Jason shares. He adds, “There wasn’t anything on the market that could deliver the lushness and vibrancy that my clients sought, so I decided to create professional-grade products for the modern luxury customer.”
Retailing from $32 to $38 USD, the entire collection can be purchased via the brand’s website.
