WHAT: L’Oreal Fiberceutic ‘Hair Botox’ treatment.
WHERE: Vanilla by Jelena, Ground Floor, Al Das, Shoreline Building 10, Palm Jumierah, 04 437 6010, www.vanillabyjelena.com; open 8am to 9pm daily.
HOW LONG: One hour (including blow-dry).
HOW MUCH: Dhs150 per treatment (excluding blow-dry); four treatments are required for the full effect.
THE TREATMENT: The procedure starts with L’Oreal Fiberceutic Shampoo and Conditioner. After hair is washed and prepared for treatment, a blend of L’Oreal Fiberceutic Intra-Cylane Hair Filling Serum is applied to the hair via what looks like a big syringe (hence the moniker ‘Hair Botox’, but there are no actual needles involved). The serum coats each strand and then a L’Oreal Fiberceutic Masque is massaged over the top to make sure the mixture fully penetrates the strands and scalp. Then 20 minutes under the hair steamer follows before a quick rough dry finishes it all off, unless you pay extra for a proper blow-dry. You then repeat the process once a week for four weeks until the full effects kick in.

THE RESULTS: L’Oreal Fiberceutic Hair Botox treatment works by penetrating the hair strands, helping the locks repair themselves. With special molecules that seek out and attach themselves to keratin-lacking areas, damaged tresses are restored and volume is boosted, but only after four consecutive appointments. If you don’t have the time, taxi fare or Dhs600 budget to maintain it, then it’s not the treatment for you.
