(Black PR Wire) CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Namaste Laboratories, makers of ORS™ hair care, is tipping off the new year with a new look for its iconic ORS™ Olive Oil! The brand, which creates hair care and styling products for all hair types and textures, introduces a “Fresh New Look” to its packaging and a formula update to some of its most popular products.

Known for its wide range of healthy hair styling and maintenance solutions, ORS™ Olive Oil products feature Nourishing Olive Oil and are now infused with a range of nutrient-rich, Power-Packed Oils such as Sweet Almond Oil for strengthening and Coconut Oil for restorative shine.

The refresh comes at a time when ORS™ aims to push its continued commitment to excellence and innovation by offering updates that further enhance the consumer experience. “We’re continually engaging with our consumers to make sure we’re meeting their needs, and they’ve told us that they’re ready for more from their trusted Olive Oil products. This insight was the starting point for our refresh, which we’re excited to bring to life. We enhanced our products with additional ingredients that provide more moisture, more strength and more shine and we’ve updated our packaging,” says Nicole Ray Robinson, Category Marketing Head at Namaste Laboratories.

Among the first ORS™ Olive Oil products available in the new look are Edge Control™ and Nourishing Sheen Spray™.
