Spotted that Groupon had a Keratin Hair Treatment deal on their site. I got to know about the Brazillian Keratin Hair Treatment from Tammy's blog, you can read about her experience here. The treatment looks so promising but at a cut throat price of RM500 onwards, it wasn't something I could afford especially when the treatment can only last 2-3 months =(.
|The deal I got from Groupon :D|
The Brazillian Keratin Hair Treatment is not your normal chemical treatment. Most would think that it's like rebonding or any other straightening treatment but it's actually more of a restoring treatment. The Brazillian Keratin Hair Treatment is designed to help reduce frizziness, restores shine and strengthens hair.
Other benefits of the Keratin hair Treatment include
- Reduce need to use styling tools
- Reduces blow drying time by 40%
- Hair is shinier and silkier
- Repairs damaged hair\
- No known side effects
The Groupon deal package includes
- 1 hour Keratin Treatment (RM650 value)
- 30 minute scalp treatment (RM130 value)
- 30 minute wash, blow and styling (RM50 value)
There's parking in front of the bungalow but it was full to the brim when I arrived but don't fret, there's always illegal parking on the side of the road 8D *gets slapped* As you can see, Glamor House also provides other pampering services like facials, manipedi, slimming and aromatherapy treatments. There's even a playing area for the kids so that busy parents can enjoy their pampering session with ease.

|Audrey started first since she arrived first|
|Hair carefully separated according to sections to apply the treatment|
Next came the Keratin treatment!
|Audrey's hair partitioned to sections|
Hair was partitioned to sections allowing the treatment to cover all areas. There was no small from the treatment which kind of surprised me as I've read that some girls went for the keratin treatment and there was a bad smell while they were having their treatment. The smell was so toxic that the hair stylists wear masks during the treatment Turns out, the Keratin treatment used at Glamor House has no Formaldehyde-free :D so it's very safe.
Although Formaldehyde-free treatments are safe, they don't last as long as the Keratin treatment promises. I got to know from the stylist that their Keratin treatment only lasts for 1 1/2 months! but the duration can be extended as you continue to do it often. Sad fact for me since I can't afford to pay the actual price :( but I appreciate his honesty and good to know that the salon used the Formaldehyde-free formula as Formaldehyde is very toxic and can cause immediate short term irritation of eyes, skin and upper respiratory tract.
|She seems happy with the result? XD;;|
|You can start to see the result of the treatment :D|
After the treatment, we weren't allowed to wash our hair for the next 48 hours. I thought it was gonna be 48 hours of pure hell as from my previous experience, my hair already gets greasy, full of grime and itches like mad after the first day. To my surprise, my hair still remained fresh and grime free after the first 24 hours, only at the last half day did I start to find it greasy.
Right now it's been a week after my treatment and I'm quite happy with it. There's less hair attached to my comb now :P A bit sad that I can't afford this treatment to maintain my hair.
