Is Singapore's humidity and heat getting to your hair?
With all the crazy hair trends that come and go, those who have experimented might be facing a quarter/mid life crisis with their dried ends.
To combat damage, keratin treatments are a popular favourite because they really work.
We're here to make your life easier with this list of the best salons that offer keratin hair treatments, compiled based on user reviews.
Take a look!
Price: From $235 (Keratin Treatment), From $375 (Hair Botox)
Chez Vous Hair Salon is best known for hair treatments --> hair botox is the ultimate best hair treatment among their repertoire of treatments.
For those who haven't heard of hair botox before, it is a type of keratin treatment that coats your hair with a layer of keratin to keep your hair frizz free while including treatments within to nourish the hair in the meantime. Read more about differences between hair botox, cinderella treatment and other keratin treatments here.
We've sent our Agent to try Hair Botox at Chez Vous and hair botox at other salons to see how good it was... and Chez Vous' hair botox is clearly superior than others. The hair botox lasted much longer at Chez Vous than the one at other salons and the hair actually looked less flat as well.
It is no wonder why this treatment won Chez Vous SO MANY AWARDS from multiple magazines and is widely raved on Beauty Undercover as well.
The cost can however be very high for their hair botox so it is best to let their stylists take a look to see if you really need the hair botox to get the best bang for your buck.
Price: Cinderella Treatment from $300
While LeeKaJa offers multiple forms of keratin treatments as well, the hottest selling one is the Korean Cinderella Treatment. This treatment is imported from Korea and is a mild form of keratin treatment similar to that of hair botox.
It coats your hair with a thin layer of keratin so that you can comb through it easily, even if your hair is super damaged.
The interesting thing about Cinderella Treatment is that your hair need not be straight after that. Stylists such as Luna, Ted and Hyejin at LeeKaJa are excellent at combining Cinderella treatment with digital perm to make damaged hair a little healthier for perming.
Combining both will of course cost you more but at least, it can help you achieve the hairstyle you're dreaming of.
The high price tag also comes with stellar service, great ambience and a free-flow beverage bar.
Don't forget to reimburse yourself with the complimentary champagne when you're getting your hair done!
One of the first Japanese salons we'd think of for ladies with curly hair, the stylists here specialize in helping ladies manage curly hair. They don't do so via straightening as they do haircuts for curly hair well also.
Ladies who wish to straighten their hair would however be glad to know that they do Keratin Treatment really well here.
Unlike rebonding which straightens hair permanently, keratin treatment helps you achieve straighter hair for about 2-5 months without permanently altering your hair texture. This means you won't have any ugly kinks at the end of the 3 months... you may even get the option of going back to your beautiful curls once the keratin treatment fades.
Flamingo Hair Studio however doesn't use any proprietary keratin treatment unlike the two salons above. However, they are still Beauty Undercover Agents' top choice because of their skill and also because of teh variety of options available here to help you manage your hair. The stylists here are also very detailed and will there adjust the strength of the keratin treatment to your hair. Service is also very good here.
The result? Shiny hair that looks natural, voluminous and healthy.
Seeing how keratin treatments are effective in helping ladies in Singapore manage frizzy hair in humid weather, COVO was the first Japanese salon to bring Keratin Treatments to Singapore years ago.
This makes their stylists particularly strong in Keratin treatments because they know exactly what type of hair is suitable for it and what they need to do at each step of the way to maximize the effect of the treatment.
They didn't just stop there though. Since then, COVO has also kept themselves ahead of hairstyle trends and brought in new treatments with different levels of keratin, such as the new NOV treatment and even Tokio Inkarami.
You don't have to know exactly which to go for as the stylists here are very skillful and knowledgeable especially in keratin treatments. They will check your hair condition and let you know what the best keratin treatment is based on how frizzy and fine your hair is and the result you would like to see.
Skill and knowledge aside, the stylists are very nice and the environment very comfortablem, a perfect place to relax and have a flawless keratin treatment done!
Price: From $300-$400
Keratin Treatment is one of the recommended treatments for ladies with bleached hair as it is one of the few treatmetns that actually work. It helps coat the damaged hair with keratin and makes it smoother and shinier.
That is why it is not surprising to find good colour salons being more skilled at Keratin Treatment as well. 99 Percent Hair Studio @ Bedok Point is one of them.
Look at what they did for Agent Modgam with colour and keratin treatment?
The transformation is just super dramatic.
She's not the only one. Beauty Undercover Agents have also reported similar transformations under the hands of Danson and his team at Bedok, thanks to their skill in keratin treatment and colour.
Prices are not low here but you can be assured that you will definitely see results!
Price: From $288
Yet another salon that specializes in curly hair, Stylist Annie is especially good with rebonding. A proponent of natural curls, she prefers customres to keep their beautiful curls where possible and instead chooses to cut their hair to shape it better.
She does however sympathise with ladies whose curls are too unmanageable, which is why she also offers straightening services in the form of keratin treatments.
Rebonding is also available but keraitn treatments are preferred by Annie because she believes that it gives the wearer a chance to get their natural curls back without repercussions (unlike rebonding which is permanent). She's so good at Keratin that she can even do C-Curl Keratin Treatment like what she did for Doctor CK.
Her expertise across haircut, keratin treatment and rebonding therefore makes her a popular choice among BU agents who are not yet sure of which treatment is best. Prices here are also relatively more affordable although salon decor isn't the most luxurious!
Price: From $250
Follicle Salon may be best known for their awesome scalp treatments but they have also recently introduced organic hair botox that are perfect for ladies with fine and frizzy hair. Unlike typical keratin treatments, a lot less smoke is produced during the organic hair botox treatment process. The ingredients used are also all derived from plants, which is why this is the only brand certified to be organic thus far.
The treatment is called Kerabond and the best thing is that the end result is also not too flat!
Effectiveness aside, the area is very discreet and the staff here gives very good service as well.
Prices may not be the lowest but are pretty reasonable especially for hair services.
Price: From $201.16
Ladies are not the only ones who can go for keratin treatments.
We know of one salon who receives many requests for keratin treatments... for men!
Take a look at the above and you'll understand why Kenaris Salon is the preferred choice for keratin treatments for men. Keratin Treatments work especially well for men as the effect of the treatment last 3-4 months, which is roughly when your hair renews. At Kenaris, they also design the cut according to your keratin treatment so the final result looks really good... do however note that haircut is not included in the price of a keratin treatment.
Of course, they aren't just good for men. Ladies have also gone for their keratin treatments and loved the results!
Results with keratin treatments aside, the place is located at Level 4 of Wheelock Place, which makes it more private and discreet
Don’t worry guys, we got you too. Even if it is just one salon… Anyway, we’re helping you make the right decision! At Kenaris Salon, you won’t be shelling out all your shiny pennies because it is a value-for-money salon.
The treatments are high-quality and easy to maintain.
Price: From $300
This salon isn't the most active on social media but this is the place ladies in the know go to to get their hair done.
We're especially in love with their keratin treatments as founder Sham is just AMAZING with mixing and matching different treatments to customize the treatment to your needs.
It doesn't matter if your curls are stubborn or if your hair is fine, he and his team will know exactly what to do to get the result you want. He is after all one of the geniuses behind texture control back at his old salon.
Effectiveness aside, the stylists here genuinely care more for their customers and so will do their best to reduce the bill as much as possible, making Be Salon very easy to go to and one of our favourite salons for 2019!
