All the damsels distressed by the quality of their hair – this post may be the harbinger of hope; hope of having a headfull of wonderful, luscious locks.
Like a lot of women, even I was quite sceptical about products claiming to improve the quality of one’s hair. Of course, styling products can change the way your hair looks temporarily, but to think that the essential texture, strength and growth-pattern may change – I didn’t think that was really possible.
But over the years, as I experimented with all kinds of hair products, I realized that there is scope for improvement. You just have to find the right concoction. And this belief was only strengthened when I recently started using products by Salon Science – they worked like a charm on my hair!
In fact, I was so impressed by the results, I decided to dig a little bit deeper and discover exactly how the Salon Science products work. From what I can tell, these products combine powerful active ingredients and plant stem cell extracts, which together, rejuvenate the hair from within. The makers have created several series of products to tackle varied hair-related problems such as ageing, lifeless hair, damaged hair, dry hair and hair loss. I got myself three products from their GSP-T SWISS GRAPE Range which promises Repair and Radiance. All of them – the REPROTECTANT™ THERMAL CRÈME, the REGLOSSE™ SMOOTHING SERUM and the RECORRECT™ LEAVE IN TREATMENT – have helped enhance the health and quality of my hair.
Now let’s look at each individual product of the above-mentioned lot. The REPROTECTANT™ THERMAL CRÈME is perhaps the most useful for me. I subject my hair to heat-based styling rather often and so, having such a product handy is quite convenient. It is supposed to be used on dry or towel-dried hair before exposure to heat-based instruments such as blow driers, straightening irons or curling tongs. The crème has a gooey texture but it spreads on the hair easily and evenly. There is no greasiness or residue and once the styling is done, but I do find my hair heavy with product after this but I am comfortable as I know I am not losing any moisture or healthy sheen. The antioxidants and UV-filter protection infused into this crème’s formula make it an ideal choice for hair subjected to heat-styling and ample environmental stress.
The REGLOSSE™ SMOOTHING SERUM has wonderful restorative properties as well. It has a dense consistency but easy applicability. A small amount – just about two to three pumps – is sufficient for my hair. I use it after showers when I’m intending to leave my hair natural, without any styling. As my hair soak up all the goodness of the serum’s constituent grape seed extract and tocopherol, there is significant improvement in their texture when completely dry. My hair, which is sometimes prone to frizz, becomes smooth, shiny and easy to tame. This serum is a great way to nourish hair over an extended period of time and should be an essential part of the hair-care regime of divas having dry, frizzy hair.
Coming to the RECORRECT™ LEAVE IN TREATMENT, in my case, this is the product I didnt use at the start but in the end it became my favourite of all, used of my haul from Salon Science. Not because it is unsatisfactory or does not deliver what it promises, but just that the other products are effective enough – I don’t need this as much since the crème and serum are enough to have my hair looking good and staying healthy. Nonetheless, let me tell you about this leave-in treatment. The product has a somewhat thick consistency and mild, inoffensive smell. I use it after a headwash on days when I have been styling my hair using heat-based appliances too frequently. It is thick and spreads through my hair evenly. Though it doesn’t leave my hair greasy, I wouldn’t recommend it to people whose hair gets weighed down easily with product usage.
I have to say though, this trio of hair-enlivening wonders have made my tresses healthier, shinier, bouncier with just a few weeks of use. I may even try the PhytoCellTec™ Swiss Apple Range that’s has benefits of Anti-Ageing and Restored Volume. These products may not be inexpensive, but I feel they’re worth every penny spent. After all, any expenditure on haircare which actually makes a difference is not a waste but an investment! That’s what I believe. What about you? Share your thoughts!
