THE MET GRAND SALON
Going to the salon is always a treat because I can leave it to the professionals to take care of my long, thick hair; most recently, I had a wonderful experience at The Met Grand Salon.
Stepping into the salon on the lobby level of Parkroyal Hotel Kuala Lumpur, I immediately felt like I was entering a world of luxury. Attentive and friendly, the staff checked my hair to see if it could withstand the hair dyeing process, and even gave me honest recommendations on the best hair colours and styles for me.
Most traditional salons wet hair before cutting, but here they dry cut as this method is better for maintaining the elasticity of my wavy, curly hair. Next, a forward graduation cut gave my hair volume, which is what everyone wants as it makes it easier to style while adding body.
I wanted a colour that was professional yet stylish, so a two-dimensional technique with Goldwell hair colour products was used first to incorporate red and violet (RV) shades before RV and brown were added to incorporate highlights, making the colour pop more.the rejuvenating Olaplex treatment was mixed with the colours to help strengthen and reconstruct my hair during the process.
After evening out the colour and rinsing my hair with warm water, I had Olaplex massaged into my scalp again. Since it took 20 minutes to take effect, I got a neck and shoulder massage with lemongrass and ylang ylang scented oil. I felt so relaxed, I nearly fell asleep!
The Met Grand Salon is the only authorised dealer in Malaysia to use Balmain Paris Hair Couture and Philip B Botanicals. They used a special Balmain shampoo for coloured hair for one last wash, followed by the complementing conditioner. Note: don’t scratch your scalp with your nails when washing your hair as it damages the scalp.
After a soothing Japanese massage and a colour lock treatment, they gently blow-dried my hair and applied nourishing Argan oil. The curls in my hair were beautiful and I could see even more dimensions in the colour.
