Top treatments to try: Kerastase Aqua-Oleum
It's a hard slog, but someone's got to do the research. This week, to celebrate the launch of our new salon and spa directory, Bh is fearlessly laying skin, body and sole on the line to track down the most indulgent, most worth-it ways to wind down and glam up in the salon.
Today, some style-stressed tresses get soft and glossy on the go…

Treatment time: 30 minutes
Why we love it…
It's instant gratification. My hair wasn't in terrible shape before, but it was dry at the tips (thanks to straightening) and I wanted to get my shine back before winter. This treatment is famed for immediate nourishing and softening effects, so I nipped into the salon before work...
It started with a speedy shampoo (my hairdresser hand-picked Kerastase Nutritive Bain Satin 1 to lightly replenish my locks) and then it was straight into the treatment. The Aqua-Oleum formula was spritzed into my wet hair and left for five minutes, which really flew by with a soothing head massage thrown in.
After a rinse and a quick blow-dry, I was out of the door in 30 minutes. And I was really impressed. My hair felt so sleek and silky and other people even commented upon how shiny it looked. The instantly glamorous effects lasted until my next wash a few days later.
I think this is ideal for slightly dry and damaged hair or for a fast shot of fabulous before a big event, but really tortured tresses probably need something more intensive for longer-lasting benefits.
