A few weeks ago I was invited to Darren Scott Salon for a treatment, so I booked it to coincide with when I take out my twists. Treatments/deep conditioners are a must for me once I take down braids/twists.
My hair was in need of moisture as it had been in twists for 4 weeks. So James (one of the lovely hairdressers) applied the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer Extreme – “a pre-shampoo treatment that instantly delivers replenishment, hydration and nourishment ”.
Once this was applied I was then under a hooded steamer (not dryer, steamer lol) for about 15mins. After that time had passed, James rinsed off the Elasticizer Exteme and applied their own Custom Blend Treament to my hair and I was back under the steamer for another 5 mins. My hair felt soooooooo soft and moisturised after this.
Once all the treatment was done…my hair was then washed and conditioned with Philip Kingsley Moisture Extreme. If you don’t know, now you know – Darren Scott Salon give the best shampoo/head massages ever! Lol the first time I went I fell alseep.
Theeen, It was time to blowdry! The Label.M Relaxing Balm was applied to my hair (nothing to do with a relaxer/perm ladies lol) as well as Mizani Thermasmooth. My hair was blowdried with a round brush – I need to get the hang of this man lol.
The most exciting part of this salon trip was having the new L’oreal SteamPod Straigteners used on my hair – definitely going on my to-buy list.
“L’Oréal Professionnels’ ground breaking straightening and smoothing device has only just been launched and is designed to produce sleek results on a variety of styles with a beautiful, shiny-looking finish.
L’Oreal’s Steampod treatment uses a specialised straightening iron to deliver a localized stream of high pressure steam to the hair shaft, deeply hydrating the hair without causing heat damage or drying it out to deliver a high gloss finish.
The Steam Pod will produce beautifully sleek and manageable tresses with a glamorously gloss, smooth finish and can be used to create a wide range of finishes from smooth and supple looks to soft, tumbling waves.”
It also comes with a removable comb for even smoother results – perfect for those of us with curly/kinky hair.
My hair has never been so silky smooth before, love it!
Just like my previous trip to Darren Scott Salon, I had a pleasant time. I love that all of the stylists are experienced in working with all hair types & that they are very much concerned about hair care as well as it looking good.
At night I put my hair in 4 bantu knots so it could have a little wave & body to it today.
