Hi.

Welcome to our blog. We're twelve girls documenting our adventures in #yxe. Hope you have a nice stay!

Strong, Shiny Hair

I recently took the plunge and chopped my hair off into the 'long bob.'  I decided that having healthy looking hair was more important than having long hair.  I have been loving the results and wanted to take it a step further. I had heard of 'shine treatments' before, specifically a 'repair treatment' that my hairstylist Amber at Salon Vibe had recommended. I decided to give it a shot.

Before the treatment...

Before the treatment...

Naturally, my hair is light brown and on the 'finer' side.  My love of blonde highlights doesn't help matters.  I use Paul Mitchell's Wild Ginger Awapuhi line of haircare products to give some love to my locks.  The KeraTriplex 2-Step Repair treatment I am getting today, is part of this line.

My stylist Amber, one of the owners of Salon Vibe, gave me the lowdown on the treatment.  The KeraTriplex 2-Step Repair is like a liquid form of hair.  It transforms weak, broken, and brittle strands of hair into pillars of strength.  On top of that, it even protects from further damage.

The first step- the single shot vial of isolated proteins is identical to the keratin found in human hair.  This can only be done at Paul Mitchell salons and cannot be done at home.  The second step- the Keratin Intensive Treatment is applied to hydrate and add healthy, silky shine.  This part can be purchased and applied at home. Yay!

After I got the 411 on the treatment, Amber applied it to my lacklustre locks and sent me to the dryer to let it process.  This helps the products penetrate further and maximizes the outcomes. No complaints here, as I got to sip on some caffeine and catch up on Vogue.  

Next, we headed over to the sinks to rinse out the treatment and apply part 2.

Ta-dah! Here is my hair following the treatment and a quick blow out.  I could tell a difference immediately.  My locks were smoother, shinier, and smelled delicious :)

We decided to throw a few curls in, to allow for more comparison to my usual hair, as I often wear it curly.  An improvement for sure.

Several days later and I am loving the results even more.  I noticed the greatest difference when I washed my hair.  I did not lose nearly as much hair in the shower or when I blow dried it.   It looks and feels better.

Thank you to Amber and the staff at Salon Vibe for letting me in on the secret to strong, shiny hair.  Check them out at: 509 Nelson Rd in Saskatoon / (306) 668-2252 / www.salonvibesaskatoon.com / www.facebook.com/salonvibesaskatoon
