Like most wom­­­en, I have my share of good hair days with an occasional bad one too. Recently, however, my shoulder grazing tresses fell somewhere in between the spectrum—they felt lifeless and fatigued (thanks for that, sun exposure), which served as a signal for me to sit up, take notice and give my hair the attention it desired. I decided to go on a quest to find the perfect hair smoothening and nourishing treatment that would help me bid adieu to my hair woes.

lakmé absolute salons new hair spa range

In my search for the right hair nourishing ritual, I finally decided to lay my trust with Lakmé Absolute Salon! After all, India’s favourite beauty chain has phenomenal expertise in the hair, skin and makeup space, which is backed by more than 35 years of experience. I was excited to learn that the Lakmé Absolute Salon recently launched a brand new range of premium hair spas (which I was more than pleased to take advantage of!)The new range enlists natural protein-based ingredients like quinoa and keratin.

My experience started with Lakmé Salon expert, Meenakshi giving out a detailed consultation on my hair routine. After having studied my hair habits and regimen, she suggested I opt for the Lush Organic Cool Treatment. While it would intensely nourish my lengths and calm my scalp, this hair spa also promised me the goodness of argan oil along with Vitamins A and E. Naturally then, I was sold at that!

hair care tips

Meenakshi blended a few aromatic essential oils and used it to massage my scalp. The relaxing head massage hit the spot and ensured that my hair was slathered in the luxurious mixture, from root to tip. While my scalp soaked in all that natural goodness, she also dropped in a few hair care tips like avoiding over-oiling and opting for an oil massage session weekly.

hair rinse with sulphate free peppermint shampoo

Next up was a double hair rinse with a sulphate-free peppermint shampoo. Not only did it cleanse the oil without drying the tresses but it also left a minty coolness on my scalp. This was followed by a nourishing hair mask, which Meenakshi carefully emulsified by rubbing into each hair strand. Post a second setting in period, the mask was washed away. A few dabs of aromatic oil and one blow dry later, the results stared back at me in the mirror. My hair was supremely shiny, my scalp felt cleansed and my tresses were so smooth, I couldn’t resist touching them over and over again! Thanks to the Lakmé Absolute Salon, good hair days are back like never before!
