Ever felt like your hair masks or leave-in hair serums weren’t adequately fighting the frizz? I’ve definitely had times where I thought attaining shiny, lustrous locks was a distant hope. Thankfully, along came the chance to try Shu Uemura’s nourishing hair treatment – and I’m happy to report that my tresses have stayed soft and smooth for the past week, and don’t show any signs of relenting.
The 45-minute treatment begins with a relaxing wash and head massage, and follows with the stylist examining my locks and customising a blend of Shu Uemura hair products – a repairing serum for damaged hair; a serum with vitamin E and gardenia oil to boost moisture; and a hair mask that helps smoothen hair. The mixture is combed carefully through my entire hair lengths, after which my hair is placed under a steamer for 10 minutes to open up hair cuticles and allow the products to work their magic. It ends with another hair wash and blowdry.
The results are immediate: My messy, frizzy locks have become a lot softer and lighter, and are enveloped in a subtle floral scent. With shoulder-length hair, my ends tend to curl up in an unsightly manner, but post-treatment, the problem, well, isn’t a problem anymore. My hair is tamer and more manageable, and I can run my fingers through my hair without encountering any tangled knots or split ends (oh joy!). Here’s to having a good hair day everyday. $220-$250 (depending on hair length), #03-19 Ion Orchard Next Salon, tel: 6509-0330
