Hair lamination: Salon procedures promise an incredible effect and amazing head of hair in the very first hours after you left the room. And this is partly true. Some procedures are becoming very popular and popular just because of their effectiveness. So, we have already talked about the effectiveness of salon procedures, so we want to talk about another popular procedure.
The hair lamination procedure is quite useful and effective. It allows you to protect your hair from constant exposure from the sun, cold and high temperatures, wind, dust and other harmful substances that we encounter in a big city.
What is hair lamination?
Roughly speaking, hair lamination is the procedure of covering the strands with a special composition with useful elements. Due to the popularity of the procedure, a lot of branches appeared in the usual lamination – keratinization, glazing and others. However, for all these procedures, the meaning is the same – protecting the hair and making it look more attractive and healthy.
According to the salon masters, hair lamination will allow us to:
- To make hair healthy
A protective film that “wraps” the strands after lamination protects the hair from everything – varnishes, irons, frost. Well-groomed appearance should be provided.
- Defeat split ends and brittle hair
Keratin scales that make up our hair fit snugly together due to lamination. This allows you to get rid of the hair section and their fragility (for the period when the hair is still “laminated”).
Lamination does not remove the wave on wavy hair. It gives smoothness and makes the curl more elastic.
- To make hair more manageable and voluminous
- To preserve the color of the paint on the hair, make the painting more resistant
- To strengthen the hair.
By the way, do not forget that after the procedure of lamination hair should be neat. So, the masters forbid washing the hair for two or three days, as shampoo and water can destroy the still unstable keratin in the hair and then the procedure will be simply meaningless.
Feedback on the procedure
So, to be sure of the effectiveness of the lamination procedure, journalist Natalia Veresyuk shared with us her impressions of this and other procedures.
When they ask me what I tried from the hair procedures, it is easier for me to answer, which I have not tried. Surely, the owners of wavy hair will understand me. And the search for a miracle for hair, which will make it smooth not until the first drop of rain is a real search for life.
As for the lamination of hair, it was a very long time and, probably, is no longer true. Hair lamination was in fashion 7-8 years ago. Manufacturers of professional cosmetics promised a miracle effect for up to two months. And, of course, this novelty had to be tried.
I did lamination of hair several times at the chief technologist of one of the professional brands so that the quality of the procedure execution was at a height.
The procedure is classic. They wash your head with a cleansing shampoo, then apply the product, wrap hair in foil and iron it. Although, it should be noted that each brand has its own technology. But the meaning is the same – with the help of high temperature the lamination compound is sealed around the hair. As a result, a film is formed, it lets in air, makes the hairs thicker, protects it from ultraviolet radiation, hot temperatures and so far.
Result: the first few days the hair looks great. I note that lamination does not remove the wave on the wavy hair. It gives smoothness and makes the curl more elastic.
Lamination on my hair lasted only 10 days, after which the hair became dry and had to be treated (and I tried several brands). After the second procedure (I would be obliged to check the words of technologists about the effect of accumulation), the situation has not changed.
