I have fine, frizzy, wavy hair and have spent a large chunk of time over the years with straighteners to achieve the look I desire. However, the look I truly desire is not wholly there as the straighteners have damaged my hair considerably leaving the ends dry and split and whenever I go outside and it’s rainy and damp the curls and frizz come back with a vengeance.
I was estastic when I heard that Valentino Salon are doing a special offer for a Brazilian Blow-dry for half the price and I could not resist giving this a go.
Upon entering Kensington’s leading salon, Valentino based on Thackeray Street I picked up on a positive and vibrant busy buzz. Much was happening in these pleasant surroundings and I was impressed with the professional and friendly welcome I had received. I met Bulgarian Artistic Director Todor Todorov who clearly knew his stuff and was absolutely charming with it. He explained and talked me through the treatment. In essence a Brazilian blow dry works by placing pure keratin into your strands. Keratin is the substance that exists naturally in skin, hair and nails and so once in your hair it nurtures and nourishes it. To lock in the keratin straigheners are used leaving your hair amazingly soft and sleek and shinny. I was amazed with the result which should hold for around 4 months. Once the treatment takes place you should not wash your hair for four days and then when you do wash it special shampoo and conditioner should be used and these are sold on the premises.
All in all a very enjoyable experience and so far I am more than happy with the result. To take up on this offer of a 50% discount on a Brazilian blow dry contact Valentino Salon: Tel: 0207 760 7524 and quote: Thebestof Kensington and Chelsea Special Offer when making your appointment.
