Are in-salon treatments REALLY necessary? Or is that just a way to up-sell and get clients to spend more in the salon? I have heard this from time to time and, in the past, have actually considered this to be true. However, I have come to learn the absolute benefit and necessity of two treatments that I recommend to my clients at every change of season.
The first is our Malibu Vitamin C Treatment ($25) and the second is an Essential Oil Deep Conditioning Treatment ($30). Have you ever felt your hair and it feels “crunchy”? We immediately think we need a deep conditioning treatment, but that doesn’t make any difference? Arizona is famed for many things: the Grand Canyon, saguaro cactus, and…our hard water. Maybe you have a water softener (which still can leave a film of salt), but for the most part, what is happening on your shower walls is happening on your hair. Calcium and other mineral deposits coat the hair and can even “choke” the hair follicle causing breakage. Malibu C is the only product guaranteed to remove medication build-up on the hair and will also remove all plastics and silicones left by traditional styling products before a color service (which is why we recommend this before any first-time organic color service or for resistant grey coverage). Malibu C naturally eliminates brassiness, discoloration and damage caused by mineral absorption. It’s vitamin-infused formula deeply penetrates for superior moisture retention and is free of preservatives, parabens, propylene glycol, DEA, gluten, fragrance and has no sodium chloride (salt) added. It’s 100% Vegan formula is patented nature-identical vitamin C complex, immediately improving the look and feel of hair. It is important that this precede a Deep Conditioning Treatment, as silicone, calcium, and medications do not allow moisture to penetrate.
O’Right Essential Oil Treatment is a custom blend of essential rose oils and pure cream conditioner. Rose oil is great for soothing an irritated or sensitive scalp due to it’s anti-inflammatory benefits that reduce redness and can relieve a dry-tender scalp. It has the ability to deliver intense moisture and hydration that is easily absorbed by the hair and scalp thanks to its small molecular size. Rose oil has anti-microbial properties and is full of antioxidants that can eliminate impurities and help protect the scalp from stress. And on a lighter note, it smells amazing! Clients have told us it completely changed their hair. Roses bring love to mind and this is how you will feel about your hair. In love.
