I was invited to try the Holiday Hair Rehab treatment at the John Carne Knightsbridge salon last week. My hair had just had two weeks by the Suffolk seaside with a few dips in the sea (Londons are a hardy lot) and lots of windy sea walks, so it was looking a bit untamed.
The Holiday Hair Rehab uses Schwarzkopf Seah Black Pearl products to remoisturise and restore damaged hair. The treatment consists of shampoo, followed by a hair mask to restore (with an excellent head massage) followed by conditioner to seal the hair cuticle. The treatment took place in a separate room with subdued lighting and the most comfortable chair/basin set up I've ever known (I may or may not have fallen asleep during the head massage).
I also had my hair cut by Sean. I'm the reverse hairdresser's nightmare to Mrs Hirons. I'm the opposite of a control freak; I give rubbish instructions like, 'I just want it a lot shorter' (with a vague gesture to a point just below my ears), or, 'I don't like my hair to look too done'.
Sean asked a few questions about how I style my hair (I don't) and how I like to wear it, and managed to translate my very imprecise direction into a cut that I absolutely love. The first picture is after having it cut and blow dried at the salon (excuse the knackered face), and the second is after washing and leaving to air dry with a little Rahua Finishing Treatment worked into the ends.
