I’m usually completely turned off by anything with the word DETOX in it. It sounds so boring, painful and usually tastes pretty bad. But when I realised that the detox I was being offered was for my hair and not my mouth, I agreed wholeheartedly.
You see, Daniel (as in the god of all hair Galvin, OBE) has developed a secret recipe for our luscious locks. The Christmas party season and all its colour, dry shampoo and volumizing moose – not to mention overload of hair spray – has probably built up a residue in our hair. And this is the hair colour guru’s solution: actually a pure vitamin C solution which rids any of these impurities from the hair in question. The best bit is that the effect is immediate – in just one minute – your hair is detoxed…
It had been a while since I had been to Daniel’s hair palace. Although the salon has shifted down the street a little, it took me back to my first highlights experience. Aged 18, Lady Y had insisted that my rather orange Sun-In days should come to an immediate end, so much so that she even offered to contribute financially towards some much-needed professional colour correction.
The salon is light, airy and full of beautiful ‘almost-real’ blondes. I felt completely at home.
After the solution and a wash/condition, I was introduced to Emma who would be giving me a blow dry to write home about.
And I left gentled detoxed but bright, smooth and smugly shiny.
My detox would have cost £17 My blow dry would have cost £32
