It has been almost a year since I started my hair journey with Chez Vous, and I thought it is time for an update. For the past 15 years of my life, I’ve been bleaching, dyeing, perming and straightening my hair through all kinds of stressful processes. And until I met the guys at Chez Vous, I had never enjoyed this level of thoughtful care for my hair. I was born with a relatively thick mane, combined with a stubborn natural propensity to curl in odd unmanageable places. Though chemical processes like rebonding and perming helped, over the years I found these to be less and less effective. At the same time, my hair has become frizzier and more prone to breakage. This is because the internal structure of my hair cuticles have grown porous from multiple processing, and the natural keratin and nutrients have been leached out. Regular salon hair “treatments” did not help, most were nothing more than merely slapping on a hair mask and sitting under a steamer. The only treatment that truly left a noticeable improvement to my hair was Chez Vous’ Trilogy System Suite [reviewed here] that comprised of 3 separate but complementary treatments to rebuild, resculpt, and revitalize. And now, there is an even more advanced, 3-in-1 treatment that does all of the above, fixes over-processed hair and restores softness and smoothness in just 120 minutes. Let me introduce you to Chez Vous’ Hair Botox + Fillers Programme!
Chez Vous’ Hair Botox + Fillers Programme was inspired by advances in the aesthetics beauty industry, and is based on the concept of “injecting” beneficial ingredients deep into the hair cuticle to fill up the “holes” left by previous chemical procedures. This treatment is not dependent on quick fix hair relaxers or softening agents to break the disulphide bonds in hair and reshape through damaging heat processes. Rather, Chez Vous has chosen to use long-lasting reparative hair supplements like micronized amino lipids, natural jojoba and avocado oils, and keratin concentrates (FDA-approved and formaldehyde-free) to repair; and silk protein and ceramide to smoothen stubborn frizz, and hyaluronic acid to hydrate.
The Hair Botox + Fillers Programme begins with a relaxing head massage where a purifying shampoo is used to cleanse and prep the hair for the ensuing steps. Next, a potent blend of hair actives is applied to the hair. This includes a heat-activated smooth-control concentrate to tame unruly hair, stabilized keratin to repair damage, and a pro-satin silk protein to smoothen the hair and boost shine.
Next, hair is saturated with a deeply nourishing hair booster containing an amino-oil complex, jojoba and avocado oils. This creates a hydrophobic coating on the hair strands to lock-in the nutrients from the previous step, and repel humidity to ensure long-lasting frizz-control. A flat-iron is used to activate the smooth-control concentrate from the earlier step, and seal in the actives for smoothness and shine.
A hyaluronic acid and ceramide-rich injection mask is then applied to the hair to hydrate and soften. As a last step, a high-performance finishing serum containing hydrolysed silk is used to further enhance the effect of the treatment, and protects the hair from heat styling.
It was incredible for me to watch how many high tech ingredients were used, in multiple rounds to ensure optimal absorption. The point, I realized, was not about pushing sales for the salon… though priced on the higher end of the market for treatments (starting from SGD375 depending on hair length), the Chez Vous Hair Botox + Fillers Programme combines both hair straightening and treatment in 1, and gets me out of the chair in under 120 minutes (versus SGD230 / 180 minutes for rebonding + SGD185 / 45 minutes for Express Revitalizing Supreme treatment). Instead, it is about helping customers achieve healthier, more manageable hair in a sustainable way. Indeed, my hair is much softer and smoother, the result is comparable to rebonding, except it looks much more natural and does not have that crazy stick-straight effect. The best part is this treatment does not cause split ends, and my hair actually gets stronger and healthier with continued treatments!
In the same spirit of helping customers get ahead of their hair woes, Chez Vous has also formulated their own eponymous haircare range – Trilogy Bespoke Boosters. This is a set of 3 customized salon-grade hair treatments designed to be used over a period of 30 days. Each jar of booster is hand-poured and selected to meet individual customer’s needs:
I have been using Repair & Rescue as shown here, as well as Soothe & Smooth as shown above; for the past month, and I absolutely love them! The textures are akin to a dense mousse; I take a palm-full each time, and massage the boosters into my towel-dried hair after shampooing. Leave on for 5-15 minutes, then I apply my usual conditioner or hair mask over before rinsing off. It definitely helps keep my hair soft and smooth, to extend and maintain the effects of the Hair Botox + Fillers Programme!
