Last week, I was invited to try out the Signature Hair Treatment at Glitz HairWorkz salon at TripleOne Somerset. Feeling in dire need of a pampering session for my hair, I immediately said yes.
I had no problems at all in locating Glitz Hairworkz in TripleOne Somerset – it’s right next to the escalator. At first sight, the decor is a mix of sleek modern lines of leather with the warming accents of wood.
The moment you’re settled in, Glitz offers you a choice of beverage from a menu – ranging from teas to juice or soda. It was a nice personalized touch, especially when my Earl Grey tea came all nicely presented on a tray. Your comfort is also assured as you slip on a light robe to protect your clothing.
I mentioned to my stylist Kelvin about my ongoing battles with my skin which had recently begun affecting my scalp and hair too, with the appearance of dry flaky bits and my hair turning into a haystack – in both texture and appearance. (The appearance bit is also partly because I’m overdue for a haircut!) He recommended that I try their dandruff treatment, which would address the scalp issues of dryness and flaking and therefore the itching.
The hair treatment is done using products from an Italian brand, Revivre, which is environmentally friendly and only uses the finest organic substances in their products. Interestingly enough, the entire range is oil-based! I can see girls with oily hair/scalp cringing already. Even though I don’t have an oily scalp, the roots of my hair are prone to oiliness that never extends down the rest of my hair. I can tell you right away that no, the treatment did not make my scalp or hair oily at all.
The stylist will apply and massage the treatment into your scalp before letting it sit for a while. Then, it is rinsed off and your hair is shampooed and conditioned. I hadn’t realized it at the time, but the treatment time was slightly over an hour, which was a lovely treat in the middle of the work week after a tiring day at the office.
The best part of the treatment for me was the scents of the entire Revivre range used on me that day. If you’re into aromatherapy, these products will be right up your alley. I loved the scents so much a bottle of the shampoo found its way home with me.
I wasn’t expecting miracles from just one treatment, but I can say that my scalp was significantly soothed – the itching was reduced by about 70%, I saw less flakies and I really did feel clean again. You know that clean scalp feeling? Yeah, that one. Treatment is recommended on a twice monthly or monthly basis if you really want to see long-term results. Or you could try the do-it-yourself route at home.
Glitz HairWorkz Signature Hair Treatment is priced at SGD 90.00.
