How a new personalised hair treatment has changed my locks

9th March, 2017

Personalisation is everywhere these days. You can personalise everything from bags to shoes to fragrances so why not your hair treatment too?

Everyone has their own unique concerns about their hair, whether it’s battling split ends or brittle strands, so it stands to reason that there shouldn’t be a one size fits all policy when it comes to hair treatments. Enter new System Professional. I recently road-tested this new range via a treatment at Sydney’s Valonz and there’s definitely something to be said for extending a little personalisation into hair maintenance.

When it comes to my hair, my key issues are mostly split ends and dryness. I have found that some treatments can leave my hair a little bit too silky and can in turn leave it limp so I wanted to ensure that my hair still had a bit of texture. All of this was taken into account during my EnergyCodeTM Mapping session which involved filling in a detailed questionnaire with the help from a System Professional trained hair stylist, via an in-salon app. This digital app has been designed to assess my hair and scalp concerns and in turn offer up a bespoke haircare prescription, which comprised of a perfectly tailored in-salon treatment and the ideal products to use at home.

The questionnaire asked me how I felt about my hair, what results I wanted from the treatment and the current state of my hair; from whether my hair dried straight or curly to if I had a dry or oily scalp… (when I say detailed, I mean detailed). System Professional discovered that everyone’s hair has its own unique “hair energy” which is as unique as a fingerprint, and by filling in the questionnaire it can identify a bespoke hair care regime for me containing EnergyCodeTM Complex, a combination of five naturally occurring lipids and ingredients that can boost hair quality and restore hair’s energy.

After filling out the app along with discussions about my hair woes, my stylist Stuart and the proprietary tool determined the correct hair perfecting treatment regimen to use on my hair, and it was perfectly suited to address my individual concerns. I had the treatment performed during the course of a haircut so there was no need to book in a separate appointment. The treatment was simple, it involved painting on the solution to my hair using a small brush and leaving it in for a while, after which the solution was washed out. Already my hair felt noticeably different – soft, smooth and just the right level of silky.

To keep the effect of virgin-like hair going I was prescribed my EnergyCode™ to use at home, which I’m currently using. I usually find that the effects of a treatment disappear a day or two after I have it done, so I’m currently trialling this new haircare system to see if it will prolong salon-fresh hair after being exposed to my usual day-to-day styling. Stay tuned to hear the results…
