12 Week Blowdry

Hi

I got the 12 week blowdry natural straigntening treatment done on my hair in a new salon in Mayo last weekend. I absolutely love the results! My hair feels so soft and healthy and has never looked in better shape. My hair is natually very thick and can be so unruley but since I've had the treatment done, it has been poker straight. It's being so easy to dry too.

Not only is it easy on my hair, but also on my pocket! My treatment was only 120 euro and I have ALOT of hair! Definitely alot cheaper than those expensive prices in Dublin. I would highly recommend it to everyone. The salon is called The Styling Room and is based in Shrule, Co Mayo. The staff are lovely and very professional. I'll definitely be returning for my next treatment.

If anyone needs the number, just PM me.

Just to let some of you know this product is not always chemical free. make sure you ask if the salon is using the formaldehyde free version. They are also available in 2% and 4%.

The formaldehyde free only works up to 80% on most clients. The 2% will work up to 95%, the 4% is only really used on afro hair.

The salon should have the shampoo and condition for you to use. They recommend that you use ones that are Sodium chloride and Sodium Laureth free.

Thanks Shello... is ur hair very long? Does the price depend on the lenght of the hair? Barrys on shop st in galway do it now as well but dont know the price...they charge €50 to cut your hair so can imagine it would be as cheap as Mayo.

might be getting it done in shrule!!

TillyGirl, My hair would be medium to long in length. How long would yours be? You should definitely get it done in the salon in Shrule, I was very happy with my results

I will do, hope it works, my hair is practically an afro!! Is it the same as what others are saying, no washing or touching for 3 days? thats why I booked it for that weekend I have the Monday off work anyway, dont fancy going to work with hair not washed for 3 days!

Thanks again

Yep...no washing our putting up your hair for 3 days. I thought this would be hell but it actually wasn't as bad as I thought! The three days flew by but doing it at the weekend is definitely the best option!

No problem, dying to know how it works for ya

No it wont damage or reverse the treatment, but it's advised you should wait at least a week after you have it done before you go swimming.

dave egans in broadale in cork does permanent straightening and has been for ages. got it done myself a yr ago and really noticed the difference. the thing is the frizzier your hair, the more noticeable the result. im not sure exactly how much it cost i think aroun 120 for the treatment and a cut so way cheaper than the prices mentioned previously!
