Out with the new, in with the…old? Cellophane treatments are a thing of the ‘90s, before hair dyes of the 21st Century came in, and they are semi-permanent colouring treatments that helped those with virgin hair experiment with colour. Recently, it has been rediscovered by salons around the world for its non-damaging properties; it adds subtle colour to the hair, while simultaneously working to lock in moisture, add shine and promote thickness.
THE PROCESS We began with a Sea Salt Scrub by Christophe Robin to exfoliate the scalp prior to the treatment. Cleansing the hair is an important step in the process as it enhances the colour strength and makes the application easier. “This is crucial in detoxifying the hair, cleansing the scalp and ultimately preparing the strands for colour treatment,” adds Que Colour founder, Monique McMahon.
THE PROCESS “We add the glaze from the roots to the ends, enriching every strand which will glow from the cuticles and seal the ends for a strong and shiny set of hair.” The semi-permanent colour is then locked in with a Heat Accelerator Hair Processor. This technology uses infrared which not only improves overall hair texture but it helps to lock in your hair’s natural moisture, while stimulating growth. Once it’s washed out, accompanied by a heavenly scalp massage, the hair is styled, glossy and raring to go!
