Bad Hair Days No More!

Last Wednesday, I went excitedly to Chez Vous Salon at Ngee Ann City to get my hair fixed. By fix, I mean to get my hair from frizzy, unmanageable and unruly to soft, silky, luscious and manageable hair...all in a span of 3 hours. 

Some background about my hair, I've always had rather frizzy, unmanageable hair. Hair treatments, spas and even the best shampoos have never quite worked to tame my unruly mane. I've always relied mostly on re-bonding to keep it in shape, but have never liked how flat and shapeless my hair becomes after a re-bonding session. 

So here comes Chez Vous to the rescue. They told me about this treatment called, 'Keratin' that injects all sorts of goodness into the hair strands (keratin, amino acids + omega 6 and 9) to treat and re-store hair to its natural luscious condition. Whee! I couldn't wait to try. 

Hair Before:


See all the frizzy bits sticking out at the top?

Strange curly kink on the top right side of my hair.

Keratin Treatment Step 1:

Wash with Keratin shampoo and leave to set for 10-15 mins. Ed, the hairstylist assistant propped my head up on the sink with a 'pillow' so it wasn't uncomfortable to lie at the sink for so long. I have to mention that the head massage after to wash off the shampoo was awesome!

Keratin Treatment Step 2:

Keratin application. That's a TV in-front of me by the way. What a clever idea for salon patrons to kill time between treatments, hair dyeing and such.

Keratin Treatment Step 3:

Set the hair under the O3 machine for 10 mins. 

Keratin Treatment Step 4+5 (final):

Dry and crimp.


Can you see how straight, smooth and glossy my hair is already? :D

Hair After:



Super happy with the results. My hair has zero frizziness, is super glossy, shiny and luscious! I never thought that I'll be able to use the word 'luscious' to describe my hair. :)

Here's a close up shot whilst my hairstylist, Serene is cutting my hair. I snipped off about 2 inches. 

Meet Serene, the stylist behind my now gorgeous locks. I'm usually very fussy about hair cuts and get really worried when I work with new stylists, but I have to say that I'm super happy with the results post treatment and cut. :) Thank you Serene!! Did I also mention that Serene and Ed stayed almost 2 hours past closing time just to work on my hair? What superb service Chez Vous has got. I felt so so bad having them stay late.

Ta-dah! Meet the happy trooper with gorgeous hair. :) 

The lovely people at Chez Vous also passed me a post-Keratin treatment care set complete with Shampoo, Conditioner and leave-in oil. 

The Keratin oil is infused with argan oil. I've always heard good things about argan oil for hair. Can't wait to try! 



This is my hair, 3 days post treatment and cut. I'm loving it! I don't even comb my hair when I get up these days and it falls nicely into shape...without being too flat. I'm a complete Keratin and Chez Vous convert.
