Salon Review: Essential Treatments For Your Tresses This Summer

The summer heat does much damage to your hair, which now requires extra care. This new salon in Makati has two of the treatments you need. Check them out.

While we bask in the sun and even allow our skin to have that golden tan, it’s easy to neglect that our hair only suffers from the intense heat and humidity summer brings. And while we slather our face and body with sunscreen, we do very little to shield our locks from the harmful rays. The result: dry, brittle, and frizzy hair.

Look every bit a summer goddess from head to toe by paying your crowning glory as much attention as you would the rest of your body. Treat your tresses to some pampering at a posh salon before and after you hit the beach—or anytime you feel like being extra nice to your hair this summer.

Where To Go:

We discovered this posh new salon called Hair Philosophie, in Salcedo Village, Makati, just a block away from Salcedo Park, making it a convenient stop after work (or after a trip to the weekend market). The salon’s industrial-chic ambiance will ease you off a stressful work day—not to mention a bad hair week.

What To Try:

If you have dry, coarse, and rebellious hair, try their Kerastase Oleo-Relax treatment (price starts at P1,700 for short hair), with silicone derivatives that have long-lasting anti-frizz effects. It starts off with a relaxing shampoo. Then, the stylist will massage the formula onto your strands, leaving it on for less than an hour. A salon attendant will give you a relaxing shoulder and back massage while you wait, then rinse it off and blow-dry your hair.

The result: In less than two hours, you can enjoy smooth, soft, and supple hair that shines. With proper care (i.e. the religious use of an anti-frizz shampoo and conditioner, and weekly hair-smoothing masque), the anti-frizz effect of this treatment can last for a month. Otherwise, you can enjoy it for at least a week.

Meanwhile, if years of neglect and sun exposure have started to show on your now dull, brittle, and easily breakable locks, it’s time you step in with some anti-aging treatment for hair—yes, there's one! Hair Philosophie offers Kerastase’s Age Recharge treatment (price starts at P1,700 for short hair), which strengthens hair’s elasticity and rejuvenates your scalp—much like what anti-aging cream would do for your face! The treatment is applied and left on your locks after a relaxing shampoo, then hair is rinsed and blow-dried.

The result: Hair that looks revitalized and supple, it gives off a vibrant shine, even in intense humidity. Locks feel stronger to the touch, assuring you that it's fortified from within. The effects of this treatment can also last for a few weeks up to a month with proper care and conditioning.

Other Treatments We Love:

Color-treated hair is more sensitive than regular hair when exposed to the sun, so try their Chroma Riche (price starts at P1,700 for short hair), a light-refracting treatment for sensitized hair due to color and highlights. Or, if you have curled hair, try their Oleo-Curl (price starts at P1,700 for short hair), a treatment program meant for curl definition and protection, so your flirty curls won’t wilt in the heat.

To try these treatments and other hair services the salon has to offer, visit Hair Philosophie at 117 Tordesillas St. corner Bautista St., ground floor of Finman Building, Salcedo Village, Makati.
