One of things I love most about what I do is I’m able to constantly test and try new products. I had the opportunity to go to Lunatic Fringe, a Kérastase salon in Salt Lake to experience their new Fusio-Dose treatment!

When I got to the appointment the stylists asked me what I thought my hair needed most; moisture, body, shine, damage repair, etc. I told her my concerns were moisture and body. During the winter time my hair gets super dry and my hair is so long that it falls flat to my head. Always.

The stylist used a special technology that’s unique to the Kérastase brand to properly diagnose my hair and find out what it really needed most. The camera looked almost like an iPhone but it’s basically a hair and scalp profiler that can zoom into your hair and scalp and has fiber up to 600 times checking for lack of shine, dryness and breakage. After she assessed my hair the stylist created a custom treatment for me from the Fusio-Dose Hair Lab using the Concentre Densifique (for density) and the Booster Nutrition (for 3x more nourishment). I had some breakage on my ends, fine hair and some dryness so my treatment helped my hair in all those areas.

It’s really hard to find time to get my hair done these days because I’m a new mom and I work, so I love that the treatment only took 5 minutes. I was so excited to see the results and after they blew-out my hair I felt like a new woman! It’s been a week since my appointment and my hair has more body and looks healthier and shinier than it ever has!

    It’s time for me to go to the salon for a hair treatment too, every girl deserves a pamper now and then :)! Thanks for sharing your experience!


  8. Melanie says:

    I can see the difference in your before & after photos. Salon products really do make such a difference. For myself personally, I have thin hair but a lot of hair so I can relate to the flat hair you mentioned with lack of body and also the need for moisture-heat and a/c both dry out hair, it’s nearly impossible to avoid. Having said that, as much as you love your long hair, a significant cut may provide the bounce you’re looking far and keep ends healthier. Have you ever tried about 5″ shorter? I’ve only ever seen you with this long length hair? There’s nothing like a good cut, that is for sure!

  9. My hair really needs this! I can’t wait to find a salon in my area. Love how your hair came out!

In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!

Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of creating my own line. After countless hours of working towards that dream, I've finally launched my first collection!

It's full of classic, feminine and romantic pieces that you'll keep in your closet for years to come and wear over and over again!
