Spring hairapy – Treat your locks to a treatment

March 14, 2014

With spring around the corner, we recommend rejuvenating your locks with one of our  in-salon treatments. They’re quick (adding just an additional 5 to 15 minutes to your service) and extremely effective. Book a treatment and collaborate with a stylist to determine which of our technically formulated professional treatments would be best to repair, enhance, strengthen, nourish and protect your hair. Each service is customized and individually prescribed specifically for your hair needs to return it to whatever you determine to be its optimal state.

For example, for those of you who like to use a lot of styling products but don’t like to wash your hair very often or if you suffer from oily scalp or dull locks, try the Mythic Oil Scalp Clarifying Treatment. It clarifies, takes off build-up from hair products, cleanses the scalp and returns hair to a balanced state. And don’t worry; it is completely colour-safe.

The Fiberceutic Strengthening Treatment is for those who don’t want to lose length, or as stylist Chris suggests, it’s for those girls who have “boyfriend hair” (referring to a boyfriend’s preference for longer manes). Yes it’s true, snipping off 2 inches is NOT the only solution to damaged locks. The product creates protein links around the hair thereby strengthening it and preventing breakage, with lasting effects of up to 10 washes per treatment. The recommended number of appointments to effectively rebuild and restore hair is 3 to 6 treatments, each one 2 to 3 weeks apart.

Impatient and wanting an immediately cosmetic and soft result (or to further enhance a completed Fiberceutic strengthening regime) you might choose to replenish with our Renew C Treatment. This treatment has some of the same strengthening properties as the Fiberceutic, but with the added benefit of lustre and shine. To maximize the full benefits of both treatments, it is not recommended to have either of these done during a colour service.

Treatments that should be integrated into your next highlighting or colour service are either the Power Dose Treatment or the Color Minded Color Pro Treatment. Both  help seal the hair to prevent color washout and fade. As any colour process opens the cuticle to deposit colour into the hair shaft if the cuticle is not sealed properly, water can enter and wash away new colour, as soon as the first shampoo (which is when the most color washout happens). These options not only help lock in colour to maximize your service and keep tones vibrant for longer but they also leave the hair unbelievable smooth. They are applied in lieu of another conditioner at the sink after your colour and use technology that covalently binds to and cross-links over colour-treated hair, keeping that cuticle more tightly closed. The Powerdose lasts approximately 4-6 weeks and the Color Minded lasts even longer- preserving permanent colour for approximately 40 shampoos.

And if DIY is your go-to, we have two amazing take home therapy masques and concentrated leave-in complexes from Bumble and bumble. Consult your stylist to determine if the Mending or Quenching line is best for you.
