The best in-salon hair treatments
Hair salons aren’t just there for trims and foils – on your next visit, why not give your locks some love with a hair treatment? Whether you want to smooth, tone, curl or grow your tresses, here’s the lowdown on some of the best in-salon hair treatments to try.
FOR SMOOTHER HAIR…
Similar to straightening treatments, smoothing treatments are a temporary solution for scoring frizz-free and more manageable locks for months. I was recently given the opportunity to trial the Goldwell Kerasilk Smoothing Treatment. Since having the treatment, my hair air-dries super smooth, so I no longer have to spend loads of time heat styling and packing on product! If you want smoother, frizz-free hair without the help of heat styling tools, you’ll love the results of a hair smoothing treatment.
How long will the results of a smoothing treatment last?
Up to five months.
FOR A BETTER BLONDE…
Brassiness, be gone! As a blondie myself, I know how disheartening it feels when just weeks after getting foils, they turn dull, brassy and well, a little yellow. If creamy, bright blonde is your thing, it’s a good idea to freshen up your locks with an in-salon toning treatment between colour appointments. This will help to eliminate yellow and orange tones as well as unwanted brassiness.
How long will the benefits of a toning treatment last?
Up to four weeks, provided you use an at-home toning treatment once a week, like muk Haircare Blonde muk 1 Minute Blonde Toning Treatment or ELEVEN Australia Keep My Colour Treatment Blonde.
FOR PERMANENTLY CURLY LOCKS…
Always dreamed of having a full head of gorgeous, billowing curls? Well, the old-school perm is still alive and kicking – and for good reason. From a simple body-wave to tight curls, a perm can completely change your look. But be warned: permed hair requires maintenance, so you’ll need to stock up on frizz-fighting products and mousses to give your curls definition and control. We love Redken 5th Avenue NYC Frizz Dismiss Leave-In Smoothing Oil Serum and TIGI Bedhead Foxy Curls Extreme Curl Mousse.
How long will a perm last?
Three to six months.
FOR A HEALTHY SCALP…
Everyone’s been buzzing about in-salon scalp treatments lately to stimulate healthy hair growth for thicker, more luscious locks. It varies between salons and brands, but the treatment usually begins with a scalp treatment and is followed by a moisture or repair treatment for the lengths of your hair. The best bit? The super indulgent and oh-so-relaxing scalp massage. Try the Aveda Hair and Scalp Treatment or if your local salon stocks Kerastase, ask about the Initialiste treatment.
