Which Treatment is Best For Me?
Regardless if you color your hair monthly, or chemically relax your hair, it's imperative you treat your hair with a deep, penetrating treatment.
With the constant application of chemicals, your hair will become stressed and in dire need of an intensive salon or at-home treatment that will revive the health of your hair. The following hair treatments will keep your hair healthy, shiny, and smooth.
Kerastase Fusio Dose
If your hair has been looking dull, dry, and lackluster, you may be in need of the Kerastase Fusio Dose salon treatment.
Fusio Dose is a custom –blended treatment that is specific to your hair type and texture. The hair treatment uses both a booster and a concentrate, which penetrate each hair fiber using nanotechnology. Fancy, right? The best part is the processing time is only five minutes.
Kerastase Fusio Dose comes in 20 different treatments to solve nearly every hair concern, including dryness, damage, frizz, overprocessed or color-treated hair and lack of volume to make hair healthier and more manageable.
Are you going blonde? You may want to consider pre-treating your tresses with Amika Virgin.
Amika Virgin is administered by a stylist during chemical treatment such as bleaching, coloring, or straightening. This two-part system protects hair by working to build and repair hair bonds that are weakened by heat styling, sun exposure, or even harsh dyes.
First, your stylist will mix a liquid solution called Virgin Protect into the chemical service. Then, Virgin Lock, a rinse-out treatment is used after shampooing and before conditioning. The best part is amika Virgin doesn’t add any time to your original appointment, because it is a part of the chemical treatment. The result is softer, smoother hair with less frizz and breakage.
Although this treatment is a popular solution for color-treated hair, it can treat hair that needs a little extra TLC.
The Linkage Meu Treatment
Japanese brand Milbon has created a treatment that is like a deep conditioner on steroids.
This treatment left any texture soft and smooth and weighed down your strands. There are three different hydrating formulas that the stylist will apply to dampen the hair at the shampoo bowl, just like a traditional deep-conditioner or mask.
This treatment takes about 15 minutes to complete, and booster vials are given to the client to apply weekly at home.
The Olaplex Stand-Alone Treatment
Olaplex is a salon protein that stylists typically mix into color, but stylists also use it on its own as a single treatment without color.
Olaplex works by cross-linking broken disulfide bonds, meaning its strengthening and rebuilding the client’s hair. The Olaplex treatment consists of two steps, done at the shampoo bowl either on dry or towel-dried hair. Your stylist will first apply the first step to the hair and allow it to process for five minutes.
Then the stylist will comb through the second step and will enable it to treat for an additional 10-20 minutes. The hair is then rinsed, washed, conditioned, and dried.
