WHAT: Smoothing treatment that improves your hair’s health, leaving you with frizz-free locks – step aside Jennifer Aniston!
WHERE: Sisters Beauty Lounge at The Dubai Mall, The Village Mall, Mirdif City Centre, Mall of The Emirates, all in Dubai; Al Bateen, Abu Dhabi
HOW LONG: 2 Hours
HOW MUCH: Dhs2,300
THE TREATMENT: Having been graced with the complete opposite to A-list hair (curly with 80 per cent frizz), when I was offered this mini miracle treatment nothing could stop me from hot-footing it down to Sisters Beauty Lounge to try the Brazilian Blowout. The treatment starts off with a shampoo, and once you are washed, relaxed and settled in front of the mirror, the hairdresser brushes the treatment through your wet hair – this takes about 20 minutes and the treatment is then left in for 10 minutes. I expected it to smell of chemicals but it didn’t at all.
The next stage is setting the treatment, during which hair is blow-dried with a cool heat and then straightened with GHDs. Unlike most straightening and de-frizzing treatments, hair is then rinsed with a mask rather than left for three to four days. To finish, I had a blow-dry, and, hey presto, I had silky, soft well-conditioned hair.
THE RESULTS: I’m 110 per cent happy with the result. I’m yet to be mistaken for a celebrity but I’ve had lots of comments on how good my hair looks. One thing to bear in mind, ladies, it isn’t cheap to maintain – the special shampoo and conditioner that helps keep you silky for three months will set you back Dhs160 each, but I can honestly say that it’s worth every penny. My hair has never felt in such good condition, I can wear it straight or curly, and gone are the days of 45 minutes of blow-drying and straightening every morning. Dubai humidity, bring it on – I’m ready for you!
