We, at Maffeos, are very proud to announce that we are now using Davines’ beautiful ammonia-free colour line: A New Colour, which also includes their vibrant colour collection: Pure Colour.
This ammonia-free colouring formula, involving 3 different components, is enriched with vitamin C, carotenoids and melanin for a strong anti-oxidant action that is able to cover perfectly white hair, lighten or darken hair colour, or change the colour-reflect.
How is it ammonia-free? Davines laboratories have replaced ammonia with monoethanolamine (MEA). Despite the name, MEA is a natural substance that has also a biological function in human beings. It is water soluble and therefore it’s rapidly biodegradable. MEA is a liquid and does not have an unpleasant smell because it is not volatile. It is an alkalizing agent used to open the hair cuticle and allow pigment penetration.
Get ready for the most comfortable Maffeo colour experience with A New Colour. During processing, this ammonia-free colour system has full respect for the hair’s structure, and is free from strong odours. We are proud to stand behind this line and know that A New Colour is safe, ethical and sustainable, and uses the properties of natural tech active ingredients.

Have you ever seen a person with vivid fashion colors in their hair? Did you wonder why they did it? Well, basically, it all comes down to a love of color.
Have you ever been fascinated by a mixture of vibrant, intense hues or even subtle complexities of different color combinations?
When you think about it, we could survive without being able to recognize color… we could carry on just fine in a world of grey – and really, how would we know what we were missing? …This beautiful gift of colour is not critical to the existence of man, and yet, it’s ours to explore and enjoy. What makes color even more fascinating, is it’s not just for our eyes – color effects our emotions. It taps into a part of our brain and heart, without words, that can either excite us (red) or calm us (blue), ignite imagination (purple) and even make us happy (yellow).
For those of us who hold a special place in our hearts for beautiful arrangements of colour, many want to capture what we see and have it be a part of us; carrying it with us, expressing our artistic vision with others we meet, in a way that surpasses words. [read more]
Essential Haircare Collection
It all started with OI Oil*. And it was love at first use.
Launched in 2011 by Davines, this excellent protective and restructuring Oil’s key ingredient is roucou oil** – and when applied to wet or dry hair, causes your hair to become extraordinarily shiny, soft, restructured and frizz-free. The natural scent is also incredible – as one of our twitter friends put it: “It smells like fresh earth and little baby angels.” (view the tweet!)
Because the benefits of OI Oil are so outstanding, in the spring of 2013, in Paris, an accompanying OI Shampoo, OI Conditioner, and OI All in One Milk was also launched… all containing that special ingredient: roucou oil. [read more]
