Women have a very special relationship with their hair — it’s our crowning glory! Which is why we invest so much money in the best shampoos, conditioners and other products to keep it in tip-top condition. But, as diligent as we are when it comes to hair care, loads of us do skimp on one super important thing — salon treatments. So, because I love to help I’ve got the low-down on why you need to make sure you’re getting regular in-salon treatments and then share my pick of the top 3 in-salon hair treatments you HAVE to try!

Professional in-salon hair treatments are important for the health of your hair. If your hair is looking limp and tired then a great in-salon treatment might be just what you need to get it looking its best again. Living in this crazy modern world there are loads of stresses on our hair (heat styling, improper diet, pollution and more) so we need to make sure that we are constantly putting back what our environment and lifestyle takes out. From smoothing and rejuvenation treatments to deep conditioning treatments, there are so many professional treatments available out there but I thought I would share just three of my favourite ones:

Inoar B-Perfect Treatment

Inoar B-Perfect Treatment

Will bring dull, lifeless hair back to life with this sensational treatment. The Inoar B-Perfect treatment is almost like a mini Brazilian blow-dry but, unlike a Brazilian, the treatment has no fumes and is a lot less intense on the hair. For ladies with curly hair, it will help tame frizz while keeping your curl intact. The treatment is also a lot more affordable than a Brazilian or keratin treatment (try half the price more affordable!) and the results last for up to 4 weeks. The treatment works by reconstructing and aligning the hair fibres from the very first treatment and your results only get better the more you use the product.

The treatment process itself is also quite pampering. Before applying the B-Perfect treatment, the hair is shampooed to get rid of any product build-up on the hair. Once the hair is sufficiently clean, the treatment is applied to the hair and covered with a super flattering plastic bag for 30-40 minutes (giving you more time to pig out on cookies and bubbles). The product is then rinsed off and you’re ready to style however you like.

I just love the way my hair looks and feels after an Inoar B-Perfect session and I always get so many compliments about how healthy my hair looks for weeks after having his treatment. I would highly recommend trying it out before a big event or special occasion if you want your hair to look its absolute best.

Inoar B-Perfect treatment is available at Sorbet Dry Bars starting at R465 for short hair. For more information check out the Sorbet Dry-Bar treatment menu here

Brazilian Blowout Original Keratin Treatment

Brazilian Blowout

If you’ve ever wondered which Brazilian blowout was the first and the best, it’s this one! This original Brazilian Blowout is the number one Brazilian keratin treatment in the world and offers the most incredible hair smoothing ability. Of course, the treatment won’t give you poker-straight hair, it’s more about reducing frizz, dramatically increasing shine, sealing the cuticle, allowing the hair to retain its natural moisture and giving you soft, manageable hair that is easy to style. The treatment contains Acai Berry, Camu Camu, Annatto Seed and is wonderfully conditioning.

The treatment takes about 90 minutes and unlike with other Brazilian blowdries you can tie up your hair and even shampoo it as soon as you leave the salon! Results last up to 12 weeks and the treatment is ideal for curly and frizzy hair and clients who want smooth, frizz-free hair and their curl reduced. The treatment is available from selected certified salons only. I absolutely love this treatment and was amazed at the results. It’s the best Brazilian I have ever had and it left my hair in a great condition.

Brazilian Blowout Original Keratin Treatment available from selected salons between R1650 and R2150 — pricing depends on the length and thickness of your hair. Click here for a list of stockists in South Africa.

Davines Replumping Treatment

Davines Replumping

This treatment is like a facelift for your hair! This ultra moisturising treatment is one of the very best I’ve had is my go-to when my hair is feeling drab and needs a serious pick-me-up. This Davines replumping treatment is elasticising and hydrating for all hair types and its active ingredients help to fight free radicals, cellular ageing in hair.

I enjoyed this treatment along with a Micromist and loved the results. My hair was in the best shape of its life after this killer treatment and I loved how it reduced the severity of my split ends. If you’re trying to grow out your hair but are plagued by split ends that demand to be chopped then this treatment will give you the valuable time you need to let your hair gain a few more inches.

Available at Carlton Hair salons from R350 with Micromist.
