Botox for Hair: Fiberceutic Treatment

A couple of weeks ago while on a shoot I was styling, the hairstylist Cristina took my damaged and fried hair in her hands and said "now what are we going to do with this?!" I didn't think it was that bad but yeah, it was that bad. Blow drying and straightening my naturally curly hair every day had left it frizzy, dull and dry with a ton of breakage. Cristina suggested I come into her salon Ponytails + Horseshoes for a fiberceutic treatment. Fiber-what? I'd never heard of it before.

So what is it?? It's a fiber-filling in-salon procedure for very damaged hair. (Like mine!) It reconstructs and strengthens to protect it against further damage. After shampooing, a hair-filling serum is applied with a syringe applicator in a zig-zag motion, targeting areas where it's needed most. It seeps into the compromised areas of hair where it then solidifies when coming into contact with water. It's quite similar to the process of applying resin to fibreglass! A masque (which is optional but recommended to extend the life of the treatment) is then massaged into the scalp and in about 5 minutes, once the fiberceutic has cured, hair can be rinsed and styled as usual. My locks drank this stuff up!

This treatment left my hair feeling soft, smooth and strong. It's been five days since I visited the salon and it still feels healthy. I'm going to get another one during the Christmas break.

The cost for a fiberceutic treatment varies. Ponytails + Horseshoes charges $30.00 when combined with a color or cut or $40 alone. Combined with the masque it's $65.00. The treatment usually lasts around 10 washes and the number of recommended applications depends upon how damaged one's hair is. The more damage, the more treatments are going to be required.

I highly recommend a fiberceutic treatment for those of you who have very damaged hair and need to repair and revitalize your locks. It can be expensive but it really works! You can also have it done in between haircuts if you're trying to grow your hair out, like me. Have any of you had one before?

I hope you all had a great weekend! Don't forget to enter my Canadian Papyrus Gift Package Giveaway here!

I would love to get one of those! The recent stripping of black dye from my hair and adding red, not to mention that I've started styling it daily with a flat iron, is taking a toll on my hair. And your locks look so stunning after the treatment!

Ooh this is so tempting, I need a cut and also have curly hair which I apply way to much heat too. So this is a great option. Thanks!

Oh wow that is so cool! I had never heard of that before!! My hair seems pretty healthy but I could be wrong, haha...I'm too much of a cheapo to ever do this though, I barely get haircuts because I don't want to pay for them
