In just 45-minutes from shampoo to finish Nelson Chan, owner/operator at Nelson j Salon Beverly Hills turned my hair into shimmering strand of gold using a new new keratin anti-aging de-frizz treatment. It’s a miracle. While it doesn’t last as long the full Monty (1 ½ to 2 hour process), it’s quicker and cheaper—and isn’t this what all women want? Another big plus is that unlike Brazilian Blowouts, keratin is formaldehyde free.
We posted a heads up about going the salon a couple of days ago and now the review: fabulous, excellent, wonderful, loving it, you really need to go and try it. And it only costs $85 to $105 depending on the length of your hair, and lasts two months.
Celebrity stylist Chan works intently, like the pro that he is, covering strands with the special keratin. Then after a short wait time he straightens the hair with a Black Diamond flatiron that diffuses non-damaging diamond dust that adds more shine. The finish product is amazing (check out the slideshow).
Not only is the keratin treatment worth a trip to Nelson j Salon, but the facility itself is also inviting with a friendly vibe and comfortable vanities and appointments. Plus, Nelson is a guru of color and cuts as well a sage advice for keeping hair healthy such using moisturizing shampoos and conditioners that contain coconut, grapeseed and argan oils. He also advises a diet rich in antioxidants to help with softness and shine such as blackberries, blueberries, cherries etc. In addition to fruit, Nelson recommends avocados, eggs, beans, fish and lean meats that add even more keratin to your hair.
For maintaining silky, shiny hair Nelson says to follow these washing steps: rinse hair, add a little conditioner from scalp to roots, then shampoo, rinse and condition again before rinsing lightly.
