The Jo Hansford Hair Treatment
I guess I’m lucky that my long hair is in such good condition. Hairdressers are constantly surprised that I manage to maintain the length and keep it pretty damage-free. To be honest, I don’t even do anything that special to my hair. Once every few weeks, I’ll put almond oil in it and keep it in overnight, just to keep it looking shiny and nice, but that’s about the extent of my skills. Recently, Jo Hansford salon invited me in to try out their deep conditioning treatment and I figured my hair would thank me for it.
I’m always a little skeptical of hair products. For the most part I find they’re all pretty much the same and don’t actually do what they claim to do (case in point: anything anti-frizz. Having trialed many, I can confirm there is no such thing). But I try to keep an open mind. At Jo Hansford, after shampooing my hair twice, they put the deep conditioning treatment through the mid-length and ends, then clipped it up, put a plastic cap over it and sat me under a heat lamp thingy (I’m great with the technical terms, I know) for 15 minutes.
I’ve never had a treatment that stays in that long or that adds heat to it so I figured this must be conditioning the bejesus outta my hair. When the time was up, they rinsed it out and it was time for a trim and a blow dry. So how successful was the conditioning treatment? Well, when my hair was wet, the comb went through it with absolute ease. That’s the first time I’ve experienced that. It just glided through my hair with no problems.
Once the trim and blow dry were done, my hair looked great, smelled great and felt excellent. The treatment was done last Friday, I’ve washed my hair since and it’s still feeling silky, smooth and easy to comb.
That’s the kind of treatment I’d say is definitely worth going to a salon to have done once every few months maybe, especially if you have longer hair.
So, on this occasion, I guess I shall eat my words about hair products not doing what they say they do. Jo Hansford’s deep conditioning treatment definitely does condition deeply.
Humble pie for table one…
