My hair was doing well for a while, and now it's back to being dry with a lot of stuck split ends again.

I was wondering if the deep conditioning treatment at a salon will help fix this, or will the in-home treatment do the trick just as well? I've done a few in-home treatments before, but not so religiously. I've not tried the salon version and was wondering how is it different than the in-home version? Do they use any machine, or is it all about the conditioner they use? Has anyone tried the salon deep conditioning treatment before? What do you think of it? Recommend or no?

I like getting mine done at the salon, they use the right mixture of fat or protein depending on how my hair is, then they put me under a dryer which is nice for a doze.

Feels great the day they do it but I'd say after a few days the lasting results are only say 20% than achieved at home.

I get the "joico four step" conditioning treatment done every 2 weeks, which leaves my hair silky and soft. I go to my local hairdressing training salon, where the students are training to be hairdressers. It only costs about £5 a treatment. It might be worthwhile checking out your local area to see if there are any training salons where you can get it done for a fraction of the price.

I posted on another thread about White Sands ER product. You put in on and get under a dryer for 30 minutes. It really works and your hair is shiny and has body....some treatment make my hair limp, this doesn't. It was featured on "The View" by Barbara Walter's stylist. You have to order it and I can't remember the site.

Salon could only help us to improve the quality of our hair, but can not cure it forever.
I think the problem of our hair is mostly decided by our DNA, which can not be changed even by the medical method. So, salon can moisture and nourish your hair, but can not change the condition of it.

salons treatment are more specialised for treating dry hair, but ultimately, you still have to take care of your hair on a daily basis, like conditioners, doing masks occasionally.

This is a great recommendation. There is a beauty school near me, so I need to check with them what services they're offering. Surprised

But do you feel that the quality of the conditioning treatment cream used by salon is better than what you can buy yourself? I wonder if you have to be a professional to be able to access the really good one.

I'm not looking to change my DNA. Confused I just wanted it to go back to what it used to be. When it was healthy, it had weight and the ends were not stuck together. It was not frizzy. Frizziness and split broken ends as well as weightlessness are conditions I conclude as unhealthy hair. I'm looking for a way to cure it. Changing DNA would mean I'm trying to change my hair from coarse to fine, from straight to curly. I'm not trying to do that. Laughing

Jandarling, what masks do you use? How often do you go to a salon for deep conditioning? I guess you're doing both home treatments and salon?

Ruk, look no further. You want what every woman wants, nice soft hydrated hair. Any hair conditioner will do. Simply saturate your hair thoroughly with your favorite conditioner 2-3 hours before bed. Place a towel over your pillow and go to bed. Next morning wash your hair and re-condition lightly. You will have a whole new head of hair. THis is my favorite way to deep condition without the salon cost. You will LOVE your hair! There is no difference between salon products and drugstore brands, other than saving money.

how much you torture it with chemical treatments is a big factor too.

I will certainly have to give this a try. How often do you do it, once a week?

SuzieQ, that's a great tip! I am going to try that.
Though *personally* I disagree that there's no difference between salon products and drugstore brands. Salons tend to have good products, I've never found a drugstore brand that compares with the ones that salons sell, except of course in upmarket drugstores that sell the same products and in France where any old pharmacy in a tiny village sells Phyto which is my favourite. ruk1, I don't think my salon uses anything different for salon conditioning treatments than what they also have available for sale. They blend different conditioners sometimes (fat and protein) but it's all available to buy.

The thing that makes Salon deep condition treatments so effective is the heat that allows the conditioner to penetrate the hair follicle. You can do this at home with a product called Hot Head from Thermal Hair Care. It's a microwavable heat cap that you can use with your favorite deep conditioner.

Twice a month I leave a deep conditioner on over night.
I get the same results as a salon treatment and save some money this way.

I own a heat cap actually the second in over thirty years, My hair before kids was mid thigh length anyway I use this once a week with a good brand of conditioner, I can plug it in pop
it on and watch TV or read a book while my conditioner is doing the trick! The heat helps open the cuticle to allow penetration of your conditioner, I leave it on between 1-2 hours and it does wonders. I replaced my last one about 4 years ago from Sally's beauty supply, however most beauty supply stores carry them
price around $40.

Salon conditioning treatments are a money maker for them.
Obviously with a reasonable conditioner and a heating cap you can get similar results at home.
Coconut oil is a great treatment. Heat up a bit in microwave to liquify and warm. I put this on with a shower cap over it. Leave on for as long as you can - hours!

What I prefer with a nice heat cap is that it stays warm the whole time cutting the need to leave anything on all night, plus they are adjustable for how much heat is comfortable for each person. I bought them for both my daughters and one like me isn't sensitive at all, but my youngest has a very sensitive scalp and just can't take as much heat as we can. Smile

Salon treatments definitely help, but you need a minimum of once a month to maintain your new shiny locks. I actually prefer salon treatments to at home versions because I always have a hard time washing everything out afterwards, and end up re-damaging my hair in the process.
