Shanghai water is pretty hard on our hair. It's no secret that Chinese water is pumped full of chlorine, it's done to ensure our tap water is free of bacteria and viruses. While that sounds great, excess amounts of chlorine can really wreak havoc on our hair. Chlorine weakens hair fibres and strips our scalp of its natural oils, resulting in duller hair that looks dry, feels rough, and is prone to breakage.
The ideal solution is to install water filters. It's also not a bad idea to schedule regular hair appointments. Our tresses deserve some TLC from all the grief we put them through.
The Deep Action Treatment (RMB600/short hair, RMB700/medium, RMB800/long) at Bijin Hair Salon is great for when your locks need a pick-me-up. It's designed to nourish not only chlorine-damaged hair, but also hair that has suffered through all the perming, dyeing, and heating we subject them to.
You begin with a wash—ask for a massage while you're at it, nothing quite unwinds you like an expertly-delivered head massage. Then they start piling on the good stuff, allowing the product to soak into your hair under a steamer for a good 15 minutes before it's rinsed off. Now's also a good time to trim off those split-ends and tame your mane back into shape.
You'll immediately notice a difference. Your hair will feel silkier, shinier and look a lot healthier. Of course, it's not a one-stop miracle, regular maintanence is required for your hair to stay in optimal condition, but it's perfect if you're desperate for a quick fix.
