Frizz-taming, shine-boosting, strand-strengthening cures for lackluster locks.


The Shu Uemura Conditioning Ceremony, available at Chris Chase Salon.  

Hiro Haraguchi Hair Salon
41 E. 57th St., at Madison Ave.; 212-593-3030
Haraguchi's Keratin shot treatment targets the hair's cuticle for increased shine and elasticity. The application of a rich keratin protein is followed by a ceramide, which helps dry strands retain moisture.

Salon Ishi

Eisaburo Ishikawa's 75-minute Caretrico treatment is ideal for smoothing saltwater-dried and sun-fried locks. The eight-step procedure incorporates keratin, collagen, and proteins to restructure ragged strands. It ends with a conditioning micromist and fifteen-minute steam to replenish the hair's natural shine.

102 Ave. B, nr. 7th St.; 212-673-5520
Parlor's Botanical Hair and Scalp Therapy is designed to nourish brittle, dried-out hair, improving resistance to breakage and smoothing away frizz. The balm incorporates tamanu oil, jojoba, and meadow foam seed oils for moisture, and quinoa and wheat proteins for strength. Afterwards, a scalp treatment is customized according to hair type.

Butterfly Studio
149 Fifth Ave., second fl., at 21st St.; 212-253-2100
The Kérastase Treatment Institute within this trendy salon offers a full menu of deep-conditioning treatments for seriously damaged hair. Your hair is surveyed by a trained technician, who creates a customized potion of oils, masques, or emollients depending on the type of damage.

Chris Chase Salon

This upscale salon offers personally tailored Shu Uemura Conditioning Ceremonies for dried-out or damaged hair. The full treatment includes a dose of scalp-cleansing oil, a scalp massage, and a deep-conditioning mask that is chosen according to your needs—to boost shine, moisturize, repair damage, or revitalize limp strands.
