Like most other women, I’m extremely particular about my hair. Whether it’s eating the right things or using the right products, I try my best to do whatever it takes to keep my tresses healthy. However, despite whatever measures one takes, seasonal changes often tend to mess with your scalp and hair. Thankfully, experts around the world have come up with some amazing treatments, which help your locks fight the environmental factors with ease. One such treatment is the Express Ritual* at Jean-Claude Biguine salons. I was recently offered the privilege of undergoing this ritual and, I have to say, my hair feels amazing!

I did the treatment on Wednesday, October 28, 2015, at the Lokhandwala branch in Mumbai. When I reached the salon, I was greeted by the gorgeous interiors and the friendly demeanour of the staff. Although there was some confusion regarding my appointment, eventually that was solved. My stylist for the day, Nikita, asked me questions about my hair and scalp. Once she had evaluated my hair, she explained to me that because I had a greasy scalp, thanks to the October heat, she would use the Wella Professional SP Clear Scalp Shampoo. My ends also looked a bit dull, so after the shampoo, Nikita applied the mixture of a 5 ml bottle of Wella Professional SP Hydrate Infusion with the Wella Professional SP Treatment Masque, massaged it into my hair. and left it on for about 10-15 minutes. In the meantime, I sipped on the delicious coffee made by the wonderful staff.

After the wait, my hair was thoroughly rinsed and blast-dried. I instantly fell in love with how smooth and glossy it felt; my dull tresses were instantly rejuvenated! I had never tried JCB before, as I like to stick to my regular stylist and salon, but they truly amazed me with their international expertise and cosmetics. The entire ritual lasted for about 45 minutes and the effects of this are known to last about 20-25 days (depending on your hair). Making this a regular habit every month really helps your mane stay fit, no matter how harsh the weather and pollution around may be.

Here’s a picture of the result (taken on my phone after the treatment; please excuse the quality. You can view another post-treatment picture on my Instagram account):


If you have the time, opt for the Experience Ritual, which includes steam and takes up to 1 hour. I highly recommend that if you have an exciting trip, family wedding or any other event coming up. As JCB has an exclusive partnership with Wella Hair Cosmetics, all the products used are from Wella’s brands. The two companies have even launched their latest range of colours for Autumn/Winter ’15, “the Art of Color,” which are available at all the JCB branches around the country. I can’t wait to go back and try that!
