To say that I’ve tried all kinds of hair treatments is an understatement. Even before my makeup crazy, I was very much hair crazy already (until now, I guess). I swear I’ve tried it all – relaxing, rebonding, permanent blowdry, brazilian blowouts, all kinds of keratin treatments. Like relationships (before I got married, of course LOL), some work, some don’t – I move along to the next. I’m still on the hunt for the hair treatment that can tame this wild, wild hair very much abused from all the heat styling, coloring and highlighting – hopefully something that can last longer than a month.

Intelligent Blowdry

Advanced Glycolic Smoothing System
If you’re a skincare buff, you would know that Glycolic Acid is an AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) that’s mainly an exfoliant and is used for treating acne, smoothing the skin as well as for treating wrinkles and fine lines. I’m an AHA fan myself – I always look for them (glycolic, lactic, mandelic) when I purchase skincare products as I find that my skin reacts well to them (more than BHAs which seem to break me out/make me purge). But I was completely unaware that Glycolic Acid has beneficial effects on the hair as well. You can read more about that here.
So Keratin + Glycolic Acid = a smoothing treatment made in heaven for those with extremely damaged hair from chemical straightening, heat styling and coloring. Its two major promises are frizz reduction and increased manageability. So imagine your favorite Keratin treatment amped up with glycolic acid which penetrates more deeply into the hair shaft. The effects of this union? Keratin’s healthier, more manageable, frizz-free and smooth hair combined with Glycolic Acid’s less hair breakage and higher heat tolerance.
The process is fairly the same as regular Keratin treatments taking up at most 2 hours depending on the length of your hair. I came in around 12noon at Piandre Bonifacio Global City (Piandre salons will be exclusively carrying this Advanced Glycolic Treatment although it’s not out yet – it’ll be introduced by January!) and left around 2:30PM. I’d ramble on about the steps but I figured I’ll illustrate instead.

I think I’ll let the result speak for itself!

Result

I don’t like the very flat-ironed slash rebonded look at all, but blowdrying or ironing the hair is an intelligent-blowdry-after-resultimportant part of the treatment as it “seals” the Keratin and Glycolic Acid into the hair. After the treatment, hair feels a bit dry and a touch coarse – I would describe it as the hair having been ‘exfoliated‘. Usually after Keratin treatments, I feel my hair has thinned out but this one didn’t feel like the ordinary Keratin result – my hair still feels thick even though it has been ironed to almost paper-thin level. Yes, it looks extremely flat right after but when washed off (the next day), your hair’s natural body reappears just void of any frizz or demarcations from previous treatments. The photo below (as well as the first one in this entry) shows how my hair looks like 1 week post-treatment.  This is without any heat styling or brushing – and only using the Keratin Complex Shampoo, Conditioner and the amazing Keratin Infusion Replenisher. The Replenisher isn’t an oil, more like a gel slash wax-like serum that doesn’t weigh down the hair but smoothens it out more and makes it easy to style however you want. I highly recommend trying this treatment!

this sounds pretty interesting. i don’t have intense frizz and my hair is pretty virgin so the whole process might be overboard for what i need but this is almost like playing chemistry with your hair! what a cool concept!

The regular Keratin treatment would be best for you, should you be interested in keeping your hair as virgin as possible 🙂 It doesn’t break bonds or anything (well, this one doesn’t either!) 🙂

I am a massive fan of glycolic acid in my skincare and it’s so cool that now it’s starting to appear in hair products too! Your hair looks amazing, and I love your colour too! 🙂 xx

This treatment looks promising, though as always I doubt it can fully save my bleached hair. But still, I’ll definitely try this once it’s out in the market + when I have the budget.

I haven’t been bleached so I can’t attest to the extent of this treatment’s smoothing effects for bleached hair. But I’ve colored my hair throughout the years and for me, I feel it’s beyond saving na. This treatment doesn’t make my hair return to its healthier state – but it makes it look like it for now 🙂 Haha! I looove the Keratin Replenisher though. If I can’t keep up with this treatment every 5-6 months, I’ll keep on using the replenisher nalang :))

My wife has been looking for hair straitening options. Sleek long hair is in right now and she doesn’t like the daily battle with her curls. Thanks for the information about Brazilian straightening. She’d like to find a longer term solution that flat irons. http://WWW.KIKISSALON.COM
