Coppola Keratin Complex Treatment by Vivere Salon Gateway Tower Mall Branch

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

     We don't want a bad hair day right? We always want to achieve a salon like-treated hair that's so healthy and shiny! Start the year right with the right hair treatment and I'm sure your hair will be beautiful all year round. For me, my hair is one of the best assets that I have. It's naturally straight that's why I don't too much effort for maintenance of it. But when I started abusing my hair physically and chemically three years ago, I was forced to maintain it with the right kind of hair treatment shampoos, conditioners, masks and of course salon services. 

     If you're a long time reader of this blog, prolly you've seen my hair transformations. I always change the color of my hair using different DIY products, I already change the style of my hair not only just plain straight cut but I already had my hair digi permed and if time and situation permits, I attend events that will showcase their services and products. Yes, I've been to different salons in the metro and I've seen every aspect of their business from their services, man power, customer service, products, sanitation and the like. I can say that many salons offer reasonable prices for their services but there are also other things to consider. I'm a cheapskate so every peso that I spend on the products or services that I pay for should be worth the price. Are you tired of going to salons that offers services beyond your budget yet your not satisfied? I'm very excited to share with you another hair transformation that happened last Saturday at one of the most posh, neat and good value for money salon- Vivere Salon Gateway Mall Branch.

     Vivere Salon Gateway Towel Mall Branch is located at the 4th level of the mall and upon entering the place I was welcomed by their receptionist. I felt very comfortable talking to her because she's friendly and approachable. I noticed the television hanging on the wall and it's tuned in to Fashion TV, I glanced at the show for a while and imagined that my hair will be runway ready after my hair treatment :) Don't get me wrong, I know we all want that- don't you

     While waiting for Ms. Van, I roamed around the place to see the theme of the salon. I like the posh minimalist design. It's interior is brown-white and nude with chairs that's very comfortable to sit in.

     I also checked the hair care products on display and saw that they carry hair care maintenance products from Schwarzkopf Professional. This brand is one of the most trusted professional salon care products in the market today. I can still remember this brand during my high school days that's why I felt good that the result of my hair treatment would be great.

     So on with the treatment, this service was offered by Sir Ogie Rodriguez, PR for Vivere Salon. When he asked me if I want to try this, I said yes right away. The service/ hair treatment that he wanted me to try was their COPPOLA KERATIN COMPLEX. This treatment ring a bell on my ears because I've heard this from my friends but didn't know to whom the treatment is suitable. I was introduced by the receptionist to Mr. Jumil Delos Reyes- Senior Stylist of this branch. He's very kind and not the snooty type of stylist that I encountered before. He's very knowledgeable not only about the hair treatment procedure itself but the pros and cons before and after the treatment. I like this kind of stylist who know how to explain the current situation of the hair, the maintenance needed and if things went wrong after the procedure, there's a ready answer to the problem. Here's my hair before the treatment- my curls were loose already and dryness can be seen on some part of my tresses.

     Before I share the step by step process, COPPOLA KERATIN COMPLEX will bring back hair to life because this treatment restores keratin, making hair soft and smooth, keeping it more manageable. Don't think that this treatment is same as rebonding. They have almost same procedure but not totally the same effects on the hair. Please also consider your hair type because there are misleading advertisements what keratin treatment can do to your hair. Yes, hair will be smooth, soft and straight but chances are if you have curly or permed hair, it will be 20% straight but not totally pin like that of what rebonding can give.

     Here's the step by step procedure for the COPPOLA KERATIN COMPLEX TREATMENT. My hair was washed with clarifying shampoo to free it from dirt build ups and grease. As you can see on the photo below, my hair still got curls after washing but if I just let it air dry, it will turned out frizzy like the photo above.

     Then my hair was combed to untangle the strands then the treatment serum was applied section by section to ensure that the hair strands have been coated properly. Thanks to Chris Mendoza- Mr. Jumil's assistant for the patience on working with m y unruly hair from the first step up to the last. Another thing that I like about this treatment was the scent of it, it smells vanilla that's why there's no negative reaction on my sensitive nose and eyes.

     Here's my hair after the application of keratin treatment, look how straight it was! I have a very fine hair and the application was a breeze. It took only thirty minutes or less for the application.

    So after this, my hair was wrapped with a cellophane and without asking Chris, I think this was to let the keratin sink inside deeply on my hair strands to prolong the effects of keratin on my hair. It was wrapped for 20 minutes and after this he proceeded to blow dry.

     Yes- it's a NO RINSE treatment. He said that I should not wash my hair for 3 days for optimal results. After blow drying my hair comes the most exciting part- using the flat iron to straighten my hair. I'm excited because I missed my natural straight hair :) Are you ready to see the before and after results? First photo: dry and frizzy hair Second photo: shiny, soft, smooth, vibrant and straighter hair!

     I'm very happy with the results! I love my new hair. My apologies for the uneven length though, I'm trying to grow my hair and le hubby insisted not to cut or even trim the edges. 

     I highly recommend Vivere Salon :) Great service means you really get what you pay for. And before I forgot, a little advice to those who want to have their hair treatments, always make a habit to ask. You should talk to your stylist, share your thoughts and listen to his/her advice. It's a mutual thing because not all hairs are created equal. There maybe pros and cons so a little question will not hurt. If you're interested to try COPPOLA KERATIN COMPLEX Treatment, book an appointment today!
