You may or may not have seen the hair lamination trend on social media, where influencers show off hair so dazzling and glossy, you’ll need shades. Well, hair lamination is now being offered by Chez Vous Salon, which says it’s the first to bring the treatment to our shores.
Basically, your locks are coated with a coat thin layer of laminate (Chez Vous’ recipe contains Hyaluronic Acid complex, Camu Camu fruit extract and Bixa Orellana seed extract), which protects hair from damage — much like how laminating paper protects documents from damage and water — and leaves it shinier than the sun.
Chez Vous’ Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination treatment is touted as the most comprehensive and effective express hair treatment under 60 minutes. You can expect a head massage, then the magic mix of Oribe 2% Vitamin C complex booster with sugar-based hair strengthening actives, along with Camu Camu fruit extract and Bixa Orellana seed extract, which penetrate deep into the hair cortex. A flat iron is used to seal treatment into the hair, and other Oribe products are applied to lock in moisture and lock out nasties.
Hair is protected against multiple aggressors such as mechanical, heat and harsh chemical damage and you can expect improved shine, softness and healthier-looking strands with 40% less frizz. The effects last six weeks, and Chez Vous says it’s better than other keratin and relaxer-related hair treatments such as rebonding, as it creates soft and manageable hair that isn’t pin-straight and stiff. It doesn’t break the bonds in the hair, and can be done even on damaged hair, and also immediately after hair colouring.
8days.sg tried the hair lamination treatment and we were pretty blown away, without even having to blow our hair. The morning after our first home wash, we woke up with hair so glossy, soft, smooth and straight, we needed to do nothing more than give it a perfunctory brush before heading out. No need for products or heat styling. It’s basically hair so manageable, it takes a lot less work to make it look fabulous. With a quick blow dry after washing, hair looks as sleek and on fleek as if we’ve used a hair straightener. But we didn’t. It’s just that our hair has been laminated. Like our precious school certs.
