Hair Botox

Since I was a kid, I have struggled with having unmanageable and curly hair. During my teenage, my mother breathed sense into me and made me use her homemade shampoo. Yes you heard it right - made of herbs called Aritha, Shikakai and Amla. There was a very long procedure before actually using this mixture as a shampoo and the downside was that the herbs sometimes left granules in my hair.

As I grew and moved away from home, I also moved away from this healthy shampoo. I moved to UK and rediscovered my curls and for the first time made efforts to manage them better. I think I got the hang of it within the year and then it was time to move away to Dubai soon.

Dubai has been weird to my hair, they seem to have lost the curls. They dry either poker straight or in weird waves. This meant I had to use some heated styling constantly. The front of my hair though is not responsive at all. I have always had baby hair at the front which just stand on their ends.

Having tried rebonding earlier, I wanted to know if there was a healthier option to straighten my hair so that I wasn't damaging them. I was told about Hair Botox at Dollhouse Dubai. I decided to go ahead with the treatment in Oct 2014 and on my shoulder length hair, it lasted for the next 6 months.

It remains to be seen how my hair react in the future but while I had it, it felt really strong and soft. Totally recommend it over Keratin and definitely over rebonding.
