Fighting with frizz? It’s a universal problem, and one that’s exacerbated throughout the summer months when our hair is exposed to humidity, sun, salt water, and chlorine. Love that for us.
Though frizz is an unruly complication that no mane is safe from, there are ways to beat it safely, naturally, and effectively. It’s called the Cezanne Hair Keratin Treatment, and South Brisbane Hair Salon, David Murry Salon has it in their very talented repertoire of hair solutions.
In a nutshell, it’s a semi-permanent hair treatment that smooths hair cuticles while adding shine. And, unlike traditional smoothing treatments, it’s completely formaldehyde-free.
For those who didn’t know, formaldehyde is a chemical that’s super effective at penetrating the hair cuticle to provide optimal smoothness, but it’s also a known carcinogen (biiiig yikes!).
The trick is in its unique blend of ingredients – made of sericin (a natural protein), glycolic acid, and keratin (obviously), this formula ensures moisture is sealed, the hair follicle is protected from damage, and finally, the treatment is sealed to complete the process. And unlike traditional keratin, Cezanne allows you to shower right after the process.
Oh, and the other amazing fact that makes Cezanne so unique is that it’s completely customisable to suit your hair type and the outcome you hope to achieve. Love your natural curls? Keep ‘em! Cezanne can remove frizz while keeping your natural bounce defined, tamed, softened, and manageable.
Ok, so let’s be clear on one thing: this is not a straightening treatment. Sure, it’ll loosen your curls and fight off frizz, but if you’re after pin-straight locks, this ain’t the treatment for you, honey. Think of Cezanne more like a smoothing and strengthening treatment that will greatly reduce frizz, cut down your blow-drying time, as well as maintain it for longer, even on the most humid of days.
Expect to be in the chair for around two to three hours – not that bad considering most trips to the salon take much longer than that! At DMS, those hours will sail along as you lap up the luxurious atmosphere of his South Brisbane space, complimentary drink in hand. During this time, the treatment will be applied to your hair, then left to process, rinsed, blow-dried, and straightened.
You’ll leave with oh-so-smooth locks which, if you felt so inclined, could be washed immediately. After the first shampoo, you’ll notice your hair take its pre-straightening shape, though softer, shinier, and bouncier than ever before.
You should get up to five months out of your Cezanne treatment, and during that time, there are no limitations on styling, so feel free to curl and straighten away without worrying about compromising the treatment. As for future hair colouring, talk to the talented team at DMS about when you can book this in.
The starting price is $350 + additional mixes as needed. The amount of additional mixes depends on how thirsty your hair is and the natural texture and length.
Along with the in-salon treatment, we recommend you extend the life of your treatment while boosting moisture and manageability by using the prescribed Cezanne home hair care program of Cezanne shampoo, conditioner and perfecter spray.
