If you’re getting ready for your next hair treatment and noticing that they haven’t been coming out quite as vibrant or lasting as long as they used to, there’s probably a good reason for it... Buildup in the shaft and scalp can often contribute to hair treatments that don’t last as long or come out as well. The result? Hair that feels dry and looks dull.
But we gotchu! You deserve to feel like your best self, especially when it comes to your hair. So we’re raising awareness about the Malibu C Crystal Gel Treatment to remove buildup.
When you say buildup, what do you mean?
We all get buildup in our hair as we go about our day, especially when the heat is driving us to cool off in the pool. Chlorine and UV rays contribute to a heavy buildup of particles in hair that leaves it with split ends and dryness. Even regular activities (such as going outside where pollen abounds) can create small particle buildup in hair that makes it more difficult for hair treatment products to do their job.
It becomes even more challenging for hair treatments to be effective if product buildup occurs (and let’s face it, us curly girls get a LOT of product buildup!). Because, while regular shampooing helps, the kind of deep-clean that is necessary to maintain fantastic hair is difficult to come by without it causing further hair damage.
Which is why we love Malibu C!
Their Crystal Gel Treatment and Un-do Goo Shampoo are fabulous, because they deep-clean the shafts with vegan and all-natural ingredients that leave the hair healthier than it was prior to the treatment.
So what about this treatment?
Glad you asked!!
We adore this treatment especially going into the fall, because it helps to clear off all the chlorine and sun-damage from summer. Which is why we’ve got a deal running on it for the remainder of the month!
But enough about the deal, onto the details of the treatment…
Our in-salon Malibu C Crystal Gel treatment is best recommended right before your hair is styled with Keratin, a Japanese Straightener, or colored. It increases the health of your hair while creating a longer-lasting hair treatment. Here’s how it works:
Our Malibu C Crystal Gel Treatment Process:
We start off by working our favorite Malibu C Un-Do Goo Shampoo into the hair and cleansing it thoroughly, to prep the hair and remove all the surface-level product so that the Crystal Gel can get in deep and saturate the whole head and hair.
2: In Depth
After the initial cleansing, our stylists work the Crystal Gel into every bit of the hair by sectioning out the hair and working it from root to tip with our Palm-to-Palm technique. Then the hair is trimmed up, pinned up, and set under a warm dryer to allow the heat to activate the natural gel’s properties so it sets deep into the hair.
After the drying process (10-45 minutes), the Crystal Gel is reworked into the hair to give it one last oomph before it is rinsed out and the hair is deep-hydrated on the tips with our O-Way hair mask to promote health in the strands and lock hydration into the tips.
