Time to give your hair some of the luxury treatment? Christchurch has got you covered with some well lush hair treatments available in the city to revitalise and restore glossy tresses. At Headspace, Redken Heatcure ($110, or $40 when added to another treatment) combines an innovative formula of unique proteins (arginine and soy), oils (wheat and palm), low-melting point waxes (candelilla and beeswax) and cationic conditioners which, when heated via the special tongs, deeply penetrate the hair’s fibre (from cuticle to ends), locking in the nourishment for long-lasting protection.
The latest lux treatment from True Grit, Kérastase Chronologiste ($70) sees freshly crushed artificial pearls enriched with Pacific sea-water releasing active ingredients like lipids, vitamins A and E, and marine nutrients mixed into a Creme Chronologiste loaded with hair-nourishing gluco-lipids, ceramides, anti-oxidants and silicone, then applied liberally! Add an intense, reinvigorating head and shoulder massage and hot steam to reveal supremely nourished hair with a soft, velvety touch.
For the ultimate in pampering, Merivale's Hair & Beauty signature Keratin Smoothing Treatment (from $150) is a super lux non-chemical straightening service that relaxes and adds shine to curly and wavy hair, getting rid of the frizz for up to 4 months so you can throw straightener away. It's best enjoyed with barista-style coffee, tea, or a wine in the evenings.
