Introducing Education with Emma, a brand-new education initiative aimed at providing the hair professional with advice, tips, tricks and best of all… brand secrets. Education with Emma is brought to you by none other than the wonderful Emma Taylor, Sweet Squared Hair Education Manager!
Okay, so if you love SACHAJUAN as much as we do here at Sweet Squared, you won't want to miss this blog to discover and learn about the full range!
SACHAJUAN is Swedish Simplicity. The brand was developed by Sacha Mitic and Juan Rosenlind, two amazing Swedish hair stylists. Both Sacha and Juan were using mediocre products on shoots; products that felt sticky, heavy and just generally didn't perform as they wanted. So... they decided to create their own! Thinking of the hair as a fabric, all the products in the SACHAJUAN range are designed to help support YOU, the professional, in manipulating that fabric.
The SACHAJUAN philosophy combines 'style with substance and form with function'. We turn to nature for ingredients, using two fresh water algae: ‘Chondrus Crispus’ and 'Rhodophycea’. One works externally and the other internally, providing structured hair which is strong, flexible and nourished.
“One of the things I absolutely love about the range is the aesthetically pleasing design... not to mention it looks great in any bathroom! It's very unisex; The bottles were designed from an old fashioned medicine bottle and I just think they look absolutely fabulous.” - Emma Taylor, Sweet Squared Hair Education Manager

Curly hair tends to split more because it wraps around the other hairs, causing split ends. This product duo will help to temporarily seal those split ends.

Colour Protect Shampoo & Conditioner are gentle on the hair due to the low acidity cleansers within these products. Ideal for brunettes and red heads to provide longevity from and prevent colour fade.
Silver Shampoo & Conditioner will help cool any brassiness in the the hair. Both products are blue-based so the longer you leave them on, the more deposit you are going to get. The shampoo is slightly stronger than the conditioner so we recommend to use once a week.

This protective barrier reduces metal and mineral build-up from hard water. These products create a beautiful smoothing effect on the hair, perfect for anyone who lives in the city or in heavily polluted areas.
