Hair salon Prep Luxe's newest hair treatment, The Freedom Range Egg Treatment Blowout, involves cracking open some eggs on your hair for shinier, more lustrous locks. How does it work?
Let's get crackin'.
Depending on your hair length, you'll get your dry mane coated with one to three eggs for the first step of the treatment. What's so special about the eggs though?
Happier hens = healthier and tastier eggs
The fresh barn-laid eggs used for this treatment are from happy, healthy chickens who are free to roam in their spacious barns at The Freedom Range Co., a local egg farm. Uncaged chickens at Freedom Range are believed to produce healthier and tastier eggs, hence adding nourishment and lustre to damaged tresses.
So, does it mean we can just buy eggs ourselves and crack them into our hair?
Our hairdresser, Maurice, told us that this treatment "isn't just about putting three eggs into your hair and washing them away". He says the eggs are "combined together with a specially concocted mix of Shu Uemura hair oil and Prep Luxe's in-house serum which will strengthen your hair ends, especially if you've coloured your hair." Ahhhh. We were left alone for five minutes for the eggy goodness to soak in.
Omelette head, anyone?
"Wait ah, it's cold water," Maurice warned before the rinse. "I know everyone likes warm water, but I don't want to cook the egg!" After that, we got shampoo-ed and a mini head massage before being led back to our chair.
You go, curl!
Upon first contact with our freshly egg-washed hair, it felt kinda... rough and tough, like your hair if you've come out of the swimming pool and let it air-dry. Maurice told us not to worry though, because the whole purpose of this $55 treatment is to "strengthen your hair". Once he had dried and slathered on some hair oil, our locks appeared more lucious and our colour more vivid, with a shine and gloss we've not seen for a long time. It is suggested that you do the Freedom Range Blowout a few times a month, to maintain strength in your locks.
