Shiny hair denotes health, enhances elegance, and helps ensure safety while biking at night. Get glossy with today's Groupon: for $89, you get a Coppola keratin hair-smoothing treatment and a glass of champagne at Hair Addiction Studio (a $275 value).
Master stylist Melanie Riddle and her talented Hair Addiction Studio team paint manes with a gloss-inspiring Coppola keratin potion, which can make strands smoother, more protected, and more manageable for up to three months. As a glass of champagne pours onto awaiting tongues or into empty gas tanks, mane mavens begin the 90- to 120-minute treatment by shampooing and rinsing locks and removing excess moisture with a blow dryer. The stylist then ensconces each follicle in a strand-fortifying keratin cocktail, held in place by a cap for 20 minutes. A subsequent blow-dry writes a billowing prologue to the next chapter of the treatment, when a flatiron presses, straightens, and shines tresses. Hair holders leave the salon with strong, sleek locks, protected from the sun, wind, extreme temperatures, and strangers who rub balloons on pedestrians' heads. Afterward, sleek seekers must keep hair down, straight, and dry for about 72 hours.
Some hair-straightening products that claim to be formaldehyde-free include aldehyde compounds, which are similar to the carcinogen formaldehyde. Side effects may include nosebleeds, headaches, vomiting, and respiratory problems, among others. Learn more about the health risks here.
