Your hair’s sure to feel silkier once your stylist conditions it—learn why with Groupon’s close-up look at conditioner.
Although human hair may look smooth, each strand's outer layer—the cuticle—is actually quite rough. Under dry conditions, the tiny scales that cover its surface become raised and brittle, causing hairs to tangle and lose their shine. Conditioner aims to correct this problem by bonding a particular class of molecules, called cationic surfactants, to the cuticle. This is possible because keratin, the protein that makes up most of the hair shaft, bristles with negative ions, which attract the positively charged surfactants, coating each thread in a thin film that weighs it down and reduces frizz. (The negative charge of keratin is also what causes static whenever positive ions are stripped from the hair—the static that makes it possible to stick a balloon to the wall or to power a miner's headlamp.)
The other ingredients in conditioner don't always need ions to do their jobs well. Humectants suck in water from the surrounding air, thereby moisturizing the hair, and oils simply penetrate the cuticle. Glossers coat the hair with light-reflecting polymers, increasing shine, whereas other ingredients raise the acidity level of the conditioner, which helps protect the hair's protein structure.
In his 16 years of hairstyling experience, Mark Harmon has seen a lot of fads come and go. So rather than simply copy a trend, he works closely with his clients to come up with individual styles that will make them feel beautiful but still work with their particular lifestyle. But while his innovative methods and intense training make him adept at styling, coloring, or designing updos on the fly, he understands that many clients have trouble verbalizing their desires, and so he encourages clients to bring in pictures of hairstyles or celebrity mug shots in order to help direct their service.
With Paul Mitchell and TIGI Catwalk products in tow, De Grance' Salon and Day Spa’s stylists cut, color, and permanently wave hair of all lengths and thicknesses. The well-rounded staff also tends to unwanted hair with waxing services, and facials such as the rosacea facial harness green tea, licorice, and seaweed compounds to calm skin. Bolstering as many services as possible with healing, wholesome products, raindrop therapy involves 28 essential oils that aim to stimulate the spine and surrounding muscles. After their beautification treatments, clients can browse the boutique’s retail goods, picking up jewelry and Betsey Johnson handbags in which to keep their recently chopped off locks.
Start your journey into relaxation with a 45-minute therapy manicure ($38) and an hour-long therapy pedicure ($55), designed to perk up digits in time for competitive hand-puppet season. In addition to the standard line-up of cuticle shaping, nail buffing, and polish administering included in classic mani-pedi productions, therapy sessions include a stress-dissolving hand and calf massage, as well as exfoliating scrubs to whisk skin scales off to Valhalla in botanically scented glory. Follow your blissful beautifying treatment with an Instant Radiance facial, which will steam, cleanse, tone, and moisturize your weary dermis. Or choose the Instant Delight massage to relieve back and neck muscles worn-out from repeated coy glances over your shoulder.
