Haircare has evolved over the years: from a time when people relied upon weekly salon visits to have their hair shampooed to now, when consumers have more products than they know how to use in their bathrooms. When creating Arey, we were focused on helping control grey hair growth with as few products as possible, but quickly realized we could also help grow thicker, fuller hair at the same time.
Hair has three main factors: color, texture and density. Being able to assist all of them in as few steps as possible is the key to our approach.
Our topical products To The Root and Wash Shampoo include a clinically effective peptide that delivers amino acids directly to the skin. Amino acids are the building blocks of healthy hair growth, and help to create collagen, a type of protein that is the most abundant structural protein in animals. A structural protein is one that makes up the structure or framework of your cells and tissues.
Your body makes collagen naturally. Collagen is found in connective tissue, skin, tendon, bone, and cartilage and has many functions. As you age, your collagen production naturally declines. Additionally, collagen becomes fragmented and more loosely distributed. Without an abundant supply of collagen, our hair follicles will struggle to create vibrant, full or healthy hair.
While collagen loss and damage as you age are inevitable, certain dietary and lifestyle factors can accelerate this process. For example, smoking cigarettes or excessive drinking is known to degrade collagen and cause skin and hair aging. Additionally, a diet high in added sugar and ultra-processed foods can lead to premature aging by contributing to a process called glycation, which reduces collagen turnover and interferes with collagen’s ability to interact with surrounding cells and proteins.
As haircare that focuses on proactive solutions, Arey offers the benefits of color preservation and healthy hair growth in one formulation. Our System which includes the daily supplement Not Today, Grey and topical serum To The Root approach hair health from the inside-out and the outside-in. Not Today, Grey provides vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that help supply the body with what is necessary for continued, efficient cell production. To The Root combines a peptide and antioxidants that work to absorb into the scalp and go directly to the source of healthy hair growth: the hair follicle.
The hair follicle uses amino acids from collagen at its discretion. These amino acids assist the growth of a hair strand and pigment production. The early signs of aging hair are the best time to start taking a supplement and incorporate products that can help deliver these key ingredients. The loss of pigment in the hair strand is one of the earliest messages from the body. Different from hair loss, grey hair is easier to identify. Early response can help preserve what you have and rejuvenate what may have been lost.
The Arey Shower Duo includes Wash Shampoo and Smooth Conditioner. Wash delivers antioxidants and peptides to the scalp to support hair health. Smooth is a lightweight conditioner that addresses the most common signs of aging hair, because as hair ages it can become not only grey, but also coarse, limp and unruly. By thoughtfully formulating our products with the help of cosmetic chemists, we aim to help hair look more vibrant and youthful.
Can our products offer more than one benefit? Yes! Each of our products addresses multiple characteristics of aging hair. Not Today, Grey focuses on overall body health; leading to healthier hair growth, which includes density and pigment. To The Root creates collagen production, leading to increased pigment and stronger hair growth. Wash allows you deliver these active ingredients while also gently cleansing your hair. Smooth helps improve the overall condition of your hair by retaining moisture in the hair strand and protecting the exterior cuticle from environmental stressors. Live In Mist offers UV protection while helping detangle wet hair and revive dry hair.
