The Texture Smooth Double Hair Treatment at Salon Vim promises softer, silkier locks in just 30 minutes. CARINA KOH finds out of it lives up to the hype.
It's a fairly simple process
First up is a wash and condition to get rid of any dirt and bacteria that may hinder the treatment's effectiveness. This is followed by the application of an anti-ageing serum with marine collagen and amino acids to soften locks, and an essence with protein concentrate designed to work on repairing damage and strengthening hair fibres. Next, a mist machine is used to help the haircare ingredients penetrate the hair shaft thoroughly. Finally, a serum with polymers is applied to seal in the treatment and prolong its effects. Each step in the Texture Smooth Double Hair Treatment only takes three to five minutes, which brings us to the next point...
It's perfect for time-strapped women.
Yep, you no longer have to stew in a salon chair for hours, as the treatment takes only 30 minutes (excluding the time taken to blow-dry your hair). In total, I spent just an hour at the salon (my chest-length hair takes a while to style).
It really delivers on its promise.
Within the first hour of returning to the office, I received at least five compliments on my glossy locks. Granted, my hair was really damaged before, but honestly I felt that it has never looked better. It was soft to the touch, easy to comb through and frizz-free, the results lasted even after six washes! I'm sold.
