Daily delight: Schwarzkopf BC Hairtherapy & Vada salon

Last week I took the plunge and lightened my hair – a lot. After years of being super blonde and then taking my hair as dark as it gets a few years ago, I was a little freaked – not about the colour (which I love) but about the shiny tresses I thought I’d waved bye-bye to after submitting to highlights. Turns out I was wrong – I can have my cake and eat it too! This revelation came after a trip to Auckland salon Vada, where I had my first ever Schwarzkopf BC Hairtherapy treatment, leaving me with hair that both felt and looked a proper treat. First, stylist Kate dry brushed my hair to stimulate the scalp and bring natural oils to the surface, then it was over to the basin for a shampoo and the application if a protein shot to instantly repair any damage done by the colour and general wear and tear. Then a repair treatment was applied and massaged in for a glorious fifteen minutes, followed by a hot towel wrapped around my hair to help the good stuff penetrate that much more. After it was all well rinsed out salon manager Leonie gave me a fabulous curl or two courtesy of the Kevin Murphy “unicorn” style curling iron. The Hairtherapy collection is pretty bloody amazing and has something for everyone, and even includes an in-salon Color Save Pre-Color Service to equal out the porosity in the hair structure prior to coloration for more even results. I, for one, will be back for more.
