Yesterday I tried the dyna mucota hair treatment at Creme Hairdressing (Chinatown). I bought a groupon for it, as recommended by my boss.
The salon was nice and cozy.
They had free drinks for the customers, and current magazines for reading.
I loved my hairdresser. She had really lovely locks and she was very professional. She didn’t just dive into the treatment, she took time to examine my hair and ascertain what it had been through.
Then she explained to me that dyna mucota will not straighten my curly hair, which I said was fine, because I did not want to straighten it. I’ve realized that rebonded or straightened hair look so fake, I’d rather have natural looking waves.
That is why I love the effect of keratin treatment aka Brazilian blowout. What it does is just tame my thick unruly hair, but not make it walis tingling (broomstick) straight.
The problem with it, though, is that the chemicals are harsh. They cause your eyes to water while it’s being applied and after the first couple of washes. It’s also expensive and you need to use pricey sulfate-free shampoos to maintain it.
Dyna mucota is supposedly similar in effect but less harsh and you don’t need the expensive shampoos.
The process is similar – first, the chemicals are applied on the hair. But while they smell a bit weird, they did not smell harsh at all. This seemed promising.
Then it was rinsed off, and my hair was shampooed, blow-dried, and ironed. Then a cream of some sort was applied to my hair, then rinsed and blow dried again.
Do I look better with curly or straight hair? I prefer curly, but some people say straight looks better. What do you think?
I like how soft my hair feels now, and it won’t stay straight after I wash it, I think.
I also loved that the hairdresser did not try to do any hardselling after my treatment. It made me want to come back even more! Salons, please take note!
