When we consider hair health, we’re thinking about shampoo and conditioner and, sometimes, the supplements that promise to make it longer, stronger and thicker. What’s been largely overlooked until now is the health of the scalp.
As part of its mission to provide clients with the best possible services and products to help them look and feel better, OrangeTwist is now offering HydraFacial Keravive, a scalp treatment that works much like the classic HydraFacial but is packed full of growth factors to hydrate, nourish and stimulate the scalp. As in HydraFacial, there are three distinct steps in the process that result in fuller, healthier hair.
“HydraFacial has always offered consumers the confidence that comes with healthy skin,” said Denise Keeler, OrangeTwist chief commercial officer. “Now we can offer OrangeTwist guests that same great feeling in fuller, healthier-looking hair.”
Stress, genetics, processing, coloring, medical conditions, and hormone fluctuations can cause a range of problems including dry, damaged strands, overly oily hair, a flaky scalp, and thinning hair. And though hair cells are technically dead, the follicle from which hair emerges is very much alive—yet the scalp undergoes a multitude of daily indignities, including being inundated with chemicals, oils, environmental pollutants, and chlorine. Adding heat from styling tools exacerbates the problem. Bottom line: the health of the follicle plays a major role in the health of the hair, so when you have a clean, well-functioning scalp, your hair will reflect that through better growth, shine and strength.
The Keravive Experience
The best way to arrive for a Keravive treatment is with clean, dry hair for optimal results. Many clients are surprised to learn that it can be done on a lunch hour, with little disturbance to the rest of the hair—no re-styling required. The client will discuss any areas of concern with the OrangeTwist provider.
The first step is the cleaning-exfoliating-hydrating process, which involves “vacuuming” out all the gunk that has built up on the scalp and hair follicles. This deep cleansing goes beyond what other regular off-the-shelf products can do. It’s not painful at all and feels lightly tingling, akin to using minty shampoo. (You can even see what was lurking in your strands—many HydraFacial “Gunkie Junkies” are obsessed with seeing what’s been pulled from their pores.)
Once the scalp has been primed for the second step, the OrangeTwist expert will apply a proprietary blend of growth factors and proteins. The final step is delivering a nourishing serum and stimulating the scalp.
Guests don’t have to go home and wash their hair—they can go about their day without worrying about any unsightly residue. In fact, it’s better to leave the products after the treatment without washing to make sure they’re absorbed properly, and some clients find that their hair can go longer than usual without a shampoo directly after treatment.
Keravive isn’t designed to replace traditional hair solutions such as Rogaine, but it works in tandem to enhance the results.
“The HydraFacial treatments are unique in that, across the skin health continuum, HydraFacial bridges skin care and correction, helping to enhance the results of other treatments and products,” said Lisa Fawcett, chief marketing officer for The HydraFacial Company. “For scalp health, this is no different—we create a foundation that allows clients to get the best results from all the combination therapies they are using.”
The OrangeTwist Connection
OrangeTwist, one of the premier chains of aesthetic treatment shops in the West, is known for its quality aesthetic treatment services and highly trained professionals. “We’re really proud to be the bridge for clients who want to have a home regime but also come in to further their aesthetic experience and results,” said Keeler.
Clients already make regular trips to OrangeTwist for services such as the HydraFacial, skin rejuvenation, CoolSculpting and CoolTone, volumizing and vitamin and nutrient injections and intravenous drips. With the addition of HydraFacial Keravive for the scalp, OrangeTwist becomes an even more comprehensive center for beauty and wellness for everyone—even if you’re bald.
