We stopped by the River North salon to test out the treatment, and our awesome stylist Julianne explained how the whole silk-a-fying process works. (Yep, we’re so excited, we’re making up words now.) The treatment starts with a spritz of eco-friendly Davines Defining Texturizer, which contains cashmere proteins and a mineral-rich marine derivative. While the spray worked its wonders on our tresses (it provides proteins and minerals for strength), Julianne applied Kérastase Elixir Ultime Oléo-Complexe to give frizz the boot and add shine. Then, she wielded the blow dryer, and it was business time.
About 45 minutes later, we had a perfectly sleek, soft, bouncy little ‘do, which we’d totally replicate for special events or date night. There’s just one side effect you should know about: You will not be able to stop touching your amazingly soft hair. The service is $50 — not a bad deal for cashmere, if you ask us.
