L’Oreal has just released a new in-salon Professional Fiberceutic Fiber Filling Treatment. In other words, Botox for hair. Hollywood has taken this product by storm and if you see good hair, they could be using this product.
Celebrity stylist Negin Zand at Sally Hershberger’s West Hollywood Salone is already using the product on her celebrity clients, and the response has been great!
“Who in particular? “Everyone,” she says, with a sly smile. And we know her list of clients includes Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie, Sheryl Crow, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kate Hudson, Reese Witherspoon, Kate Bosworth, Scarlett Johansson, Cate Blanchett, Diane Lane, Meg Ryan, Evan Rachel Wood, Jessica Biel, Jane Fonda, Megan Fox, Carey Mulligan, to name just a few.
This new L’Oreal product finds the damage in the hair strands and smooths out the surface, hence the nickname Botox for Hair. Zand explains: “The product is really great for women with fine, dry or colored hair and hair that’s gotten damaged from blow drying and flat-ironing. It makes the hair smoother, shinier, silkier. But it can only be professionally once applied every six weeks. Like everything, there can be too much of a good thing.”
The active molecule — trademarked as Intra-Cylane — is currently only available through salons and must be applied by hair-dressers. It is washed into the hair using a shampoo, and then once the hair has been towel dried, more of the chemical is added in serum form. Inside word is that L’Oreal will soon launch a range of consumer Botox for Hair shampoos and conditioners to be used in between the salon treatments. The treatment costs $100 at the Hershberger salon, located at 760 North La Cienega Boulevard, West Hollywood.
This new miracle product is just in time for the 2012 awards season.
We’re gonna go on record predicting a major hair trend: shiny, silky hair on the nominees and presenters at the Critics Choice, Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild, Independent Spirit Awards and the Oscars.”
I think I would be all for this, but I already pay enough for a haircut and color, I don’t just have an extra $100.00 lying around for a shampoo………but, if it worked, it might be worth it. I did some research and found the product on Amazon or $40.00. The article says to get it professionally done only, but that makes you wonder if that is just the stylist saying that so she can get you into her salon and pay for it, or if L’Oreal really thinks this should only be applied by a professional.
You can decide for yourself. I might be too scared to do it myself, but I am happy to have the option and a lot cheaper option at that.
