What is bio-mimetic hair care? A 101 guide for men

What does ‘bio-mimetic’ mean and why is it so good for your hair? Read this essential guide to our RE+AL Bio-Mimetic care range and discover why every man needs it in their daily grooming routine.

What is bio-mimetic hair care + how does it work? 

Here’s our bio-mimetic definition in a nutshell: Literally, ‘bio’ means ‘life’ and ‘mimetic’ means ‘imitating’. So, using 100% nature-derived oils that mimic your hair’s natural oil, our RE+AL Bio-Mimetic care range imitates hair’s natural protective process. It’s also infused with vegan keratin, which is equivalent to hair’s protein. By taking a leaf out of nature’s playbook, the oils in this tech help give hair the daily protection and nourishment it needs.


What are the best bio-mimetic products for my hair? 

Whatever your hair needs, we have the perfect routine for you.
