Gharieni takes wellness to the next level The Augmented massage - a collaboration between Gharieni and Jean-Marie Adrien of Motion Waves promises to provide a unique sensory experience. The treatment bed has built in sensors designed by Adrien to “transform the therapist’s hands into conductor’s hands”, as the music played during the treatment will change as the therapist moves. The technology aims to change a traditional spa treatment into a unique, one-off experience that will create deep relaxation, setting new boundaries for signature treatments.

CONSUMERS SPENDING MORE ON BEAUTY THAN EVER BEFORE UK beauty consumers are spending big on sheet masks, superfood skincare, premium fragrances and anything millennial pink, according to a report from John Lewis. The retailer released its report on the nation’s shopping habits over the past year, highlighting the biggest beauty shopping trends via the best-selling products. Sheet masks took off massively in 2017, and John Lewis reported that the Powerfoil mask from consumer brand Estée Lauder experienced a 123 per cent increase in sales on 2016.

The other big skincare trend, which has been gaining traction in the professional sector for some time now, was products containing clever superfood extracts to feed the skin, like the latest iteration of Clarin’s popular Double Serum, which launched in September and harnesses anti-ageing turmeric. Meanwhile, Elemis’s Superfood Facial Oil was John Lewis’s bestselling seasonal launch earlier in the year. Lips proved to be the nation’s make-up focus, with millennial pink

Bulgari Beijing opens with 1,500sq m spa The most recent addition to the Bulgari hotel portfolio, the Bulgari Hotel Beijing, has opened its doors, complete with a 1,500sq m Bulgari Spa. The 119-room Bulgari Hotel Beijing is located in the mixed-use Genesis complex in the city’s central embassy district. Hotel amenities include the twostorey Bulgari Spa, which features eight treatment rooms and two treatment suites, as well as a 25-metre swimming pool and a vitality pool. Other spa facilities include a relaxation area, a thermal space with amenities including a sauna,

steam room and ice fountain, and a manicure/pedicure area. There is also a gym and fitness studio, refreshment bar, retail space and a room dedicated to male grooming services, among other elements. The spa, which has been developed by wellness consultancy

and management firm Goco Hospitality, has been designed by celebrated architecture firm Citterio-Viel & Partners. The spa’s design ethos blends Bulgari’s high-end heritage with contemporary Italian luxury and local Chinese influences. Ingo Schweder, founder and chief executive of Goco Hospitality, said: “We very much enjoyed working closely with the highly experienced Bulgari team to help bring their stunning vision to life. “The new Bulgari Spa will be a leading wellness facility for residents of and visitors to Beijing.”

Research reveals drastically different costs of a Brazilian wax around the world A Brazilian wax costs just 22 AED in Egypt, while in Venezuela the treatment would set you back a huge 606 AED. The stark differences in the cost of the popular waxing service were highlighted in research by Latin American e-commerce platform Linio in its 2017 Beauty Prices Index. The UAE ranked 24 among 50 countries for a Brazilian, at an average price of 89 AED. Colombia and Guatemala followed closely behind Egypt in

the list of the most purse-friendly places, with average prices for a Brazilian wax 30 AED and 34 AED respectively. “Getting a Brazilian wax before going on holiday is as commonplace as stocking up on sunscreen, a costly item which vacationers often purchase once they arrive at their destination to save money. There’s no reason why beauty treatments such as waxing should be any different,” commented Andreas Mjelde, chief executive officer at Linio.

“I believe that holidaymakers would certainly be tempted to forgo the familiarity of their usual salon if they’re able to get a highclass treatment on holiday at a fraction of the price.” PB

21 Business Trends

Insider, our exclusive round-up of spas in the GCC. It’s the easiest way to stay in the know



Open evenings are an important way to promote customer loyalty, gain new clients, advertise new products or services, and boost retail sales. When questioned about your motivates for holding such evenings, the majority of you say you are most likely to host open evenings for a talk by a visiting expert. With customers demanding a more holistic wellness approach in spas, this is a great opportunity to introduce fitness or nutrition to your clients, alongside your normal treatment offer. Meanwhile, when selecting a supplier for your products and equipment, you are unanimous in the belief that brand reputation is the most important aspect, followed by support with training. Business figures remain stable but are slightly down from last month in terms of treatment room occupancy and rebooking rates.

Sparkle andSHINE


It’s the party season, so brush up on your make-up services with our how-to guide

is the season to be jolly! As the clement weather arrives in the UAE, your clients will be invited to a whole host of festive parties, launches and other events that call for them to look fantastic. Our frenetic pace of life means that clients will want to obtain maximum glamour with minimal effort, so if you aren’t currently offering makeover services, you’re missing out on a whole host of revenue opportunity. And for those salons and spas that do offer make-up services, ask yourself if your clients are ofay with the latest techniques and products, which will transform clients not only to the naked eye, but also for when they are snapped by cameras. Yasmin Hussain is founder, sole owner and managing director of The Lipstick Make-Up Institute based in Media City, Dubai. She believes that offering less than professional make-up services could damage your salon’s reputation.

“If a salon hires a make-up artist who has not had the proper training then they will more than likely fail in this profession in every way,” she says. “The reputation of a company relies on many factors; customer service, cleanliness and professionalism. The make-up industry is flooded with unprofessional make-up artists who are not >

trained and they feel that the fact that they own a make-up brush gives them carte blanche to call themselves a make-up artist.” Hussain explains how badly trained make-up artists can make a catalogue of mistakes. “First and for most is hygiene!” she explains. “I have had the misfortune to have seen so many make-up artists who do not clean their brushes and who use their make-up in an unhygienic way. “Secondly, if the customer is paying for a high quality service and not receiving this, they will feel unhappy and will not recommend the salon to their peers. Dubai is a city that relies on repeat service,

word of mouth is everything in this vibrant city that hardly ever sleeps. “My staff members go through many trials before they are hired and become part of our Lipstick Team. We hold frequent sessions, refresher courses in which we touch on how all the Lipstick Team members are expected to perform and treat their models and products. Hygiene is always top of the list – as well as talent of course!” Hussain has devised a variety of make-up courses especially for salons. She says: “We can generally customise courses for salons depending on their exact needs and as to what standard their staff are at already.” “For a business to survive and gain a reputation for being, ‘a great salon’, owners must keep their standards high, so the correct professional training is imperative in every sense of the word. “We have just customised a 10-day course for a salon, which is launching and bringing in staff from abroad. At the moment, the standard that the staff is at is nowhere near the level that Dubai customers expect. >

023-029 PBGCC DEC17 Make-Up.indd 25

06/11/2017 13:28

The training is for a group of nine staff members and it will be quite an intensive course. “Sometimes when salon staff comes to us, we really have to go back to basics as they have adopted bad habits along the way. We have to erase these and start again, but that’s what we are great at and we love it. The sense of achievement is what its all about.”

Marketing makeovers Lisa Marie Williams, educator for the Healthcare Group, which partners with Dermalogica in the UAE, agrees that December an ideal time to offer makeovers to clients. “This will be the party season so clients will be booking in for make-up applications in preparation for parties. “To capitalise on this, consider offering discounts and loyalty cards and, particularly for make-up applications, you could offer ‘refer a friend’ or ‘bring a friend along’ promotions where the existing client gets 10 per cent off her make-up application. “Also, make sure you advertise properly so that clients receive your message – that there is no need to spend time doing their own make-up when they



can have a professional do it for them, who will give them hints and tips at the same time. “It is always good to offer hair and make-up simultaneously, if possible, as clients tend to want to have everything done together in the same place at the same time so, all they need to do when they get home is put their outfit on and they are ready to go.” Williams believes that the classic smokey eye, as well as bold, bright red lips, will remain popular this season as well as the use of volumising mascaras and eyeliner to enhance the eye area. And even if your salon does not sell make-up, you can still use makeovers as an opportunity to sell other products. “Precleanse by Dermalogica is a great product to recommend after a make-up application, as it is amazing at removing even stubborn make-up such as water proof mascara. “After a party, clients will want to remove their make-up quickly and easily and Precleanse is the product to help them do so. It also lifts dirt and excess oil from the skin, reducing congestion and breakouts. “Another great product is Dermalogica’s Skin Perfect Primer. This is a great base for make-up and will also helps the make-up to last longer throughout the day. It contains SPF to protect from the sun and has peptides and antioxidants in to treat fine lines and wrinkles.” >

eyes HAVE IT



Smokey eyes are a must-have look for parties and glamorous events. We asked make-up industry doyennes Provoc, from Sawaya International, how to create a perfect party look on clients, using their innovative products.

STEP 1 All about the base Nothing beats clear, even-toned, healthylooking skin as a base for your defining and colouring stages. Provoc offers three types of foundation in five gorgeous shades. Choosing the right shade of foundation is just as important as choosing the right texture for the skin type. Provoc foundation comprises a new formula that has undergone thorough studies to ensure the best coverage. The Proposal shade is for fair skin and has a non-greasy formula, providing a matte coverage and velvety finish. It also includes SPF 15 protection. Checkmatte is an excellent stay-on formula for oily to normal skin. It has a powdery look and gives high coverage for a beautiful matte finish. Finally, Proxy is an anti-ageing concealing camouflage formula, with SPF 30 for clients who desire extreme coverage!

STEP 2 The easiest Smokey Eyes Ever! Smokey eyes are normally created with powder eyeshadow, deftly smudged with other colours, or applied layer over layer on the full lid, finishing with darker shades on the outer eye. But instead of layers of normal eyeshadows, why not try using several Provoc eyeshadow gel pencils, blended for the ultimate look? Select three or four complementary shades from the Provoc eyeshadow gel pencils range. Apply, starting from the inner corners of the eye with the two lightest shades till you reach around half way. Blend, then add the next hue, finally adding the

medium and darkest shade as you move towards the outer corners of the lid. This can be blended slightly upwards and and out into a V shape at the corner of the eye. Blend the whole eye with a brush. Provoc eyeshadow gel pencils can also be used underneath the eye to create a true smokey effect. Add a Provoc black eyeliner and mascara and the eyes will truly pop!

STEP 3 Beautiful brows No smokey is complete without striking eyebrows. If a client’s eyebrows are sparse, the two-sided Trident Tip and Brow Shader Pen can create the illusion of full brows by drawing hair strokes on existing brows to create a dramatic yet natural look. PB

Ask the Experts



the EXPERTS Our experts answer an array of questions about every aspect of running a successful salon or spa business

How should I advise clients when it comes to caring for their skin overnight? My advice is to clean the face with a gentle milk and tone with a thermal tonic, making sure no make-up residue stays on the skin. This also helps the skin to absorb the product that will be used afterwards, benefiting from all its active ingredients throughout the night. Start by choosing the right eye contour depending on your eye condition. I always advise my clients to use a Vitamin C based eye contour cream for tired and dark circles, or a gel based eye contour that contains liposomes, glycosome and hyaluronic acid for puffy and dry skin. Tap the product around the eye contour in a gentle, circular motion. Apply an anti-ageing serum on your face before your night cream. The serum should be chosen depending on what your skin needs and its condition and the formula should contain active ingredients such as: • Hyaluronic acid for dry skin • (ECM) Extra Cellular Matrix for thin and damaged skin barrier • (EGF) Epidermal Growth Factor for tired and mature skin • Vitamin C for dull discolored skin in need of firming Always finish up with the application of a night cream rich in peptides

for mature skin or moisturising hyaluronic based creams for dry and young skin. Don’t forget your neck and décolleté since the first sign of ageing skin appears on this area. Make sure to choose the right neck and décolleté cream. >

As a nail tech, what harmful chemicals should I look out for in products?

What are the best stretching techniques to use during a intimate wax? Positioning your client correctly during an intimate wax is fundamental to an effective service. Using the right stretch movements will reduce discomfort and stop unnecessary skin trauma, bruising or hair breakage. Communication is key because asking your client to adopt what can be slightly embarrassing positions won’t be well received if they aren’t prepared. Also, to help with the stretch of the skin, you will need your client’s participation. You only have one pair of hands so they’ll often need to contribute to pulling the skin taut. Talk your client through what will happen and make sure they wash their hands beforehand so that the areas being waxed won’t be at risk of bacteria. When getting on the bed, ask your client to lie flat and place a pillow under their head for support. Then, position their legs in the number four position – where you bend the leg, placing the bottom of their right foot on the inside of their left leg and vice versa – as this will give a good stretch around the inner thigh and groin area, allowing you to work. Stretch but don’t press when applying and removing the wax. Bringing the knees up to the chest and dropping them to the sides, known as

Clients are more aware than ever of which ingredients will keep their nails in top condition and which to avoid, so it’s vital you know your products inside out. Not being able to tell a client about what’s inside the polish or hand cream you stock could damage the trust you have with them, so research is important. Understanding your products means you’re able to use what’s right for the client, giving them the best results. For example, if your client is pregnant then there are certain ingredients they will have been advised to avoid, such as some aromatherapy oils, so check that your products don’t contain traces of these. You should also avoid stocking nail lacquers that contain formaldehyde (a colourless, flammable gas), DBP (the chemical dibuty phthalate) or toluene (water-insoluble liquid), as these chemicals can be harmful when inhaled. In consultation, find out if your client has any allergies or has experienced reactions to certain products before to make sure you use products free from what they’re allergic too – for example, nuts.

Spa Conference




The countdown has begun for the fourth World Spa & Wellness Convention taking place on 5 - 6 February 2018. This month we speak to KARINA STEWART, founder of award-winning wellness retreat, Kamalaya Koh Samui Why is ‘make wellness the key destination to repeat business’ a topic that is close to you?

What can the audience expect from this session?

“Wellness” has become a term to refer to the growing interest all around the world. It is a term that is widely used and used in different contexts, a term that requires some definition in order to ensure we use it in a context that is accurate and thus avoid the risk of diluting the term. For us at Kamalaya, ‘wellness’ is: “Living a life in which the physical, emotional, social, mental and spiritual aspects of our lives are healthy and balanced such as to create positive health, quality of life, a sense of wellbeing and a positive contribution to our communities. It is a dynamic process of ongoing change and growth towards physical, mental and social wellbeing. It is a journey of increased awareness, active and engaged choices towards a healthy, fulfilling and meaningful and successful life for oneself and importantly, for our larger communities.” So in essence, we are speaking of a way of life, much more than absence of disease. It is a shift in paradigm in which living and making choices and our daily actions reflect these values. It requires a willingness to increase our personal awareness of how we live every aspect of our lives in order to make better choices, and become the empowered authors of our lives. I believe to attract guests who are interested in ‘Wellness’ then we must be willing to embark on a journey of increased awareness and more authentic experience of wellness, and from there make choices that reflect a shift in perspective and a renewed approach to life.

To engage in a discussion with leaders in the Wellness industry and to learn from the different perspectives and expertise each panelist offers from different approaches and perspectives on our industry.

What would you like the audience to take away from this session? The inspiration and motivation to question and explore more fully what ‘wellness’ means to them personally and some tools for making decisions and choices about how to better incorporate Wellness into their personal lives including their business life.

What do you think have been the most important wellness industry developments in the last few years? The astounding growth of properties, services, and approaches to Wellness within the Wellness industry itself has been one of the most impressive developments. While there are trends within fitness, beauty, medical technology which will appeal to the industry as the solution for their guests, what I notice is that the businesses that truly thrive are the ones that are not chasing after the latest trends but the ones which have a core philosophy and follow that approach with integrity and persistence.

As the co-owner of award-winning Kamalaya Wellness Retreat in Koh Samui, what wellness initiatives have you successfully achieved in the past? We have recently launched our Kamalaya Life Enhancement retreats which we envisioned from the inception of Kamalaya and which we are very proud to launch this year. While we continue to excel at personal customized Wellness programs for our guests, we also discovered from our guests the wish for group retreats in which our guests could benefit from the guidance of one of our experts and from the group dynamics and community that enhance a retreat.

The perfect


MARIA DOWLING on how her clients are

helping her showcase her talent

THIS MONTH WE INTRODUCED A FUN NEW FEATURE TO THE SALON. The mariadowling ‘Selfie Corner’ is the perfect way to showcase our talent, via our clients, and give them the opportunity to tell everyone about us on social media! Facebook and Instagram are awash with before and after pictures, hair how tos and “I love my new hair colour” selfies. How many times have we searched hashtags for #theperfectbalayage #newhairtrends or #longhairlooks? After all, it isn’t just about the celebrity hair – it’s about hair on real people, looking…well…real! Real or not, there is still a huge emphasis on getting the image right. The quality of the image says a lot about your salon but you don’t need to be a professional photographer to know the basics. Through trial and error, I’ve put together these tips on how to get Instagram success with the perfect shot!

Where possible take the picture in natural light (we take many photos outside) but if this isn’t possible, invest in a ring light which is a great light for taking hair (and facial) shots as it really makes the colour pop.

4  Don’t give up Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither was the perfect selfie. Any professional blogger will tell you that it takes them multiple times to get the perfect shot so whether it’s two, 20 or 200, be prepared to take more than one photo. Try various angles and poses, and learn what works in terms of distance, positioning and the amount of light you need.  PB

1  Designate a snapper Giving one of your team members the responsibility of shooting, filtering and lighting the shots is a great way of enhancing skills and increasing creativity in the salon.

2 Make sure the picture focuses on the hair

Rome wasn’t built in a day, neither was the perfect selfie

Clients may be reluctant at first to do a selfie or have their faces posted on your channels so make sure you focus on photographing the hair rather than the face. Back shots and side angles can disguise the face if the client wishes to remain anonymous.

3  Lighting is key In our salon, the lighting is perfect for hair colour but not so good for photography which is why we created our own selfie corner with flattering lights that make up all look amazing!

Pushing Boundaries Trevor Sorbie artistic director and award-winning avant-garde stylist, Joanna Cree Brown has enjoyed a truly creative career


ooking after my clients in the salon is still what I enjoy most about my job. I also love my creative work and bringing ideas to life. I get to collaborate with like-minded individuals and push the boundaries. I enjoy the cross over from fashion, art and film and being totally out of your comfort zone often produces the best results. The hairdressing world gets more and more exciting every year. I feel like it’s constantly changing and moving. There is room for everyone in our industry to express their creativity and work and I believe that is so important. I love that the industry is now a global world and the cross over into fashion, art and film is really exciting. There are also many more great platforms now where you can get noticed and/or inspired which is fantastic for the younger generation. If Johanna Cree Brown was a brand, the brands I would aspire to try and emulate would be both Apple and Dutch fashion designer Iris Van Herpen. Iris Van Herpen because she is in love with inventing new forms and methods. Apple always do something new and bold, driven by evolving in today’s fast-paced world. Both these brands are brands I love! I don’t think you can ever pinpoint where inspiration comes from as it really is everywhere; artists, photographers, fashion designers and multimedia artists are creative creatures and their work is inspiring. The Natural History Museum or the Science Museum are always good environments, art exhibitions, a shop window you pass, Instagram, talking with the team, or even a conversation you have with a client. These days with our phones it’s so easy to photograph and catalogue our work and the things we see every day or when travelling, so you need to get your hands busy. Start working on your ideas straight away. Try and layer your references and don’t be too literal with your source of inspiration.

“Ultimately, I would love to keep evolving, sharing, supporting and enjoying our amazing industry” Johanna Cree Brown This might mean re-visiting other ideas, so it’s good to keep a visual record or collect materials and fabrics and combine various ideas together and let them evolve. Sometimes it’s instant and a simple idea and sometimes it takes more work. During the creative process, I like to try new materials or different approaches to the hair to see what’s possible. When I think I might have something I’m excited about I share it with the team and the people I love to collaborate with to see if they are excited about it too. Once an idea is complete, I will then show it to Trevor. One career goal I still have would be to continue exploring the potential of film. I’ve collaborated with Roger Spy for about seven years now, producing many hair and fashion videos. We also have so many more great ideas we want to explore, so it would be wonderful to keep progressing and working with hairdressing on different mediums. Ultimately, I would love to keep evolving, sharing, supporting and enjoying our amazing industry.

59 Tried and Tested



This month we try the James Read spray tan, the hair and scalp clay from Maria Dowling and the Reviderm Crystal Microdermabrasion facial

This month we tried… James Read spray tan at Reflection Salon, Al Wasl, Jumeirah by Lucie Jones The lowdown: When I first arrived in Dubai a few years ago I could not believe how popular spray tans were, even though we have full on sunshine pretty much 365 days a year. But I soon learnt that many residents would rather protect their skin from the harmful UV rays so opt not to sunbathe. Many are fearful of the damage sun exposure has on the skin, not to mention the fear of skin cancer… When I heard that the James Read brand had arrived at Reflection Salon I got very excited – I’d heard lots about this tanning brand and so when I was asked by our editor, Emma if I’d like to review this I jumped at the chance. I’d heard lots of amazing things about this tanning range, and that James Read himself is an expert in the field with celebrity a-lister’s lining up to be sprayed. PB says: The James Read range is suitable for all skin types with each product infused with skin beautifying ingredients such as aloe vera, cucumber extract, hyaluronic acid and red algae, which soothe, hydrate and moisturise the skin. Before the tan is applied, the therapist conducted the usual drill of moisturising the dry areas all over my body which included my hands, feet, knees, ankles and elbow. I noticed that the therapist had an unusual technique when applying the tan, as she mapped out my body in stages, starting from the face making her way down to the tips of my toes. The whole treatment was over in 10 minutes, much quicker than other spray tans which I have experienced before, with 10 minutes resting time afterwards. I especially loved that I could leave the salon without the tan sticking to my clothes or smelling the usual smell – allowing me to walk straight into work with no one noticing (other than

that I looked clearly like I’d stepped on a plane from the South of France!) The overall affect was exactly what I look for when choosing a tanning brand – there were no dodgy spray tan marks and the colour was completely golden rather than orange! Business benefits: Many women opt to wanting a spray tan to look golden, rather than sitting in the sun, but surprisingly, not many salons in the UAE even offer spray tanning. Having a spray tanning option is a great addition to your treatment menu because clients have to come in every two weeks to re-sprayed – it’s a great treatment which will ensure clients come back. This treatment also doesn’t require much space, yes it has to be private, but a spray tanning tent really doesn’t take up a lot of room!

This month we tried… The Reviderm Manager Treatment at Beauty Forever Salon, Abu Dhabi

The lowdown: Reviderm is widely recognised around the world as a skin care system which has been developed using the knowledge gained from the most up-to-date medical and cosmetic research from around the globe. The brand harmonises modern science with forces of nature to create the most advanced skincare products and treatments which produces the most active results. PB says: mask. To help improve the major skin concerns. The treatment begins with a facial cleanse using the Reviderm Cleansing Milk, followed by an enzyme peeling liquid which is applied with a fan brush, this is left on for 10-12 minutes. To further activate the ingredients the therapist gets to work using the microdermabrasion machine, allowing the peel to further penetrate deeper into the skin. This is followed

by a simple extraction of black heads and spots and then a Allantoin Antiseptic Lotion is applied. The therapist then gets to work by stimulating my blood circulation with a facial massage using the Argisyn Decontract followed by the Collagen Mask with Daily Double C which is left to soak for 15 minutes. With the treatment over, sunscreen is applied which is the most all-important step! I was shocked by the immediate results this treatment had, so much so, friends in the UAE are lining up to also have the same treatment. My fine lines were instantly reduced, and my skin tone looked so even that it hid my pigmentation and dark spots – which meant my instant reaction of reaching for my foundation was no longer! I left Beauty Forever fresh faced and confident that until next time my skin looked healthier and in the best shape it’s been for a while.

Tried and Tested


Business benefits: Offering facials, which are tailor, made for your client is the no.1 rule for anyone looking to add an advanced cosmetic facial range to their treatment menu. The immediate results that bespoke facials have on a client means that they’d be very likely to rebook before they’ve even left the salon.

This month we tried… Hair & Scalp Clay by Maria Dowling at mariadowling Salon The lowdown: Regular detoxing has become an essential part of all our lives, and your hair is no exception. The mariadowling Hair & Scalp Clay has been specially formulated to deeply cleanse, stimulate, moisturise and rebalance the scalp helping it to recover from external toxins and product overload. PB says: Maintaining healthy hair is always a battle for me, especially when living in a hot climate, so regular hair treatments are a must when I visit a salon. The Hair & Clay Scalp treatment is made up of a ‘Zen-like’ mix of clay and pure oils. Fragrant oils include peppermint, jojoba and lemongrass are key ingredients which helps to rebalance the hair. Argant, bergamont, sesame, vitamin B5 and honey soothe and heal, while providing aroma-therapeutic benefits to help calm the mind – the smells are instantly recognised when the bottle is opened, completely natural with no additives! The treatment is applied on wet hair and is left to soak for 20 minutes ensuring the hair is cleansed of all external toxins and product build-up. When



rinsing the clay out, there is no need to apply shampoo or conditioner because the clay has cleansing, cleaning and moisturising ingredients in this which does the work for you! Once blow-dried, you can instantly see that my hair is revitalized, healthy and shiny (and this surprised me because conditioner wasn’t used, and my hair NEEDS the condition!) Business benefits: Adding a quick-fix like this Hair & Scalp Clay on to your treatment menu is a dream for a client who wants instant results, without having to endure the entire hair washing process. Many treatments require more than 20 minutes of soak in time, and then the full hair washing steps – with this all in one treatment it saves time and saves on product! PB
