Last week I went in for a much needed deep conditioning treatment at Concept Salon in Midtown West—and I am obsessed. Love the treatment, love the salon, love the stylist! The fifteen minute treatment called Inphenom is a revolutionary new hair revitalizer meant for colored tresses of all types—damaged, distressed, highlighted, dry. Or in my case, burnt.
Yes, I burnt my hair. At a bar. On a candle. And, of course, I was wearing a lot of hairspray…meaning it literally poofed into a giant fireball the second it hit the flame. Luckily, the guy next to me was a genius thinker and quickly dumped his beer on my head. (Sorry, people, that stench is me!)
When I got up the courage to run my hand through the burnt section, inches of hair fell to the ground. I almost cried. It was dark, the damage was done, and the smell of burnt human hair had already permeated through the entire underground lounge. Who puts lit candles on the bar? So not my fault.
Thus, the stars must have been aligned when I got invited to try out the Inphenom treatment the following week. And it saved my life. In addition to the fire, I also highlight my too-long-to-ever-be-considered-healthy hair. The thinness factor also hurts my chances of maintaining a strong split-end free mane, but I swear, this treatment has done wonders for my hair. (more…)
