We’re fans of Kérastase Paris, so when Sophisticate’s Hairstyle Guide was invited to check out their re-launched Fusio-Dose Hair Lab Treatment—and their very cool brand-new Hair & Scalp Profiler Diagnostic Camera, we knew we couldn’t miss the chance.
We met the Kérastase Paris pros at Salon Buzz in Chicago’s Gold Coast, and they walked us through the process…
It all starts with the Hair & Scalp Profiler Camera, which is attached to a smartphone. It zooms in on the hair fiber up to 600 times, then allows the stylist to take a photo, which is uploaded into a diagnostic program where it undergoes a full fiber analysis. So we could follow along, the smartphone was attached to a tablet which showed us what our hair pro was doing.
After finding out which area of improvement we were most interested in for our hair: radiance, nourishment, strength or density, the analysis began. We were interested in a boost of volume, so the diameter of the hair fiber was measured and compared, giving us a “very fine” verdict. Damage was also assessed (none—yay!) and the shine factor, which was horribly lacking (oh no!).
Next came the recommendation for the Fusio-Dose Hair Lab Treatment. This is a “beauty shot” treatment that consists of a primary treatment, along with a booster for a secondary treatment. The primary treatments cover the four improvement areas noted above, while the five secondary boosters include nourishment, manageability, radiance, density and reinforcing. Based on our hair analysis, it was recommended we have a primary radiance treatment for more shine, and a density booster for extra volume. The treatment takes just five minutes, and you’ll see the results for up to four weeks.
In addition to the in-salon treatment, the analysis also recommended Kérastase Paris products to use at home. Combined with the Fusio-Dose treatment, over time our hair will become shinier and thicker. We can hardly wait!
