We’ve all heard of brow lamination – it’s the latest brow trend to transform scruffy brows into fuller, fluffier, and thicker-looking brows without the need for any painful or permanent treatments (we even tried on our brows and can attest it’s the best thing since we discovered Olaplex and contouring).
But have you heard of hair lamination? No, nor had we until Dubai-based beauty experts, Sisters Beauty Lounge, hair lamination is the newest hair treatment craze that will be coming to salons in the UK and Europe (provided they are allowed to reopen soon, of course).
What is hair lamination?
Hair lamination is a revolutionary treatment that works on the exterior of your hair. Salon experts coat your hair with a thin layer of laminate, which is mostly made up of active ingredients including gelatin, keratin and oils, to leave you with hair which is softer to the touch and an intensified shine. The formula is applied at the back-wash and then activated by heat from a hair dryer or straightener after washing, forming a protective layer over each strand of hair, to close cuticle scales and restore the proteins which play a large part in the hair-repair process.
What hair types can benefit from the treatment?
The main aim of hair lamination is to protect the hair against loss of moisture caused by sunlight, toxins, and over-washing. These environmental factors can damage our hair, and it is important to cleanse and hydrate the hair to reduce these damages and ensure healthy, shiny locks. A remedy for dull, damaged, frizzy hair, hair lamination locks water into the hair, leaving it up to 8 times more hydrated and 5 times shinier. It’s also a great treatment for [link url=”[link url=”https://www.glamourmagazine.co.uk/article/how-to-get-rid-of-split-ends”]split ends[/link]”]split ends[/link] or very long hair that’s prone to dryness. As a result, you hair will be thicker-looking with fewer tangles a velvety softness. Heaven.
What are the results?
The smoothing treatment “leaves the hair intensely shiny, lightweight and fluid.” Speaking to GLAMOUR, Jamilla Paul, Artistic Director at Sisters Beauty Lounge, described hair lamination as ‘makeup for your hair’; the perfect time-saver treatment that dramatically improves the quality of the hair fibre, leaving it instantly sleek and silky. It’s the perfect cure for dull, dry hair, and it only takes only 8 seconds. Hair lamination might be the solution to achieving gleaming, shiny hair in a fraction of the time.
“The result is incredible instant gloss and shine – imagine those signature Kim Kardashian super glossy locks often seen on the red carpet. This is the result you’ll get after having a hair lamination treatment!” It seems that having perfect, healthy hair might now be a possibility, thanks to this revolutionary new treatment.
