Humid weather and beautiful hair are mutually exclusive. The humid weather that we experience in Singapore is the reason why our hair looks frizzy and messy – even if we spend time smoothing it down every morning.
Sure, we can be conscientious with using a hair mask, a hair straightener, or a dry shampoo to manage the unruly look. But hair treatments are still a better (and more pampering!) solution to get our frizzy mane back in order again.
If you’ve been looking for a great anti-frizz treatment at a hair salon, here are eight that you should certainly consider.
Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination: Chez Vous
When looking at all the local #hairinspo on Instagram, you’d be hard-pressed to miss all the stylish, flattering looks created by Chez Vous, one of the leading names in the world of luxury hair salons.
Established in 1995, Chez Vous has been one of the constant innovators in the realm of professional hair services in Singapore. Over the years, the team of expert hairdressers has introduced game-changing innovations such as Anti-Damage Movement Perm & Soft Rebonding, Hair Botox + Fillers Therapy, and Fake Ash Colouring Technique, just to name a few.
The award-winning salon has also been dubbed Singapore’s go-to “hair fixer”, thanks to its ‘Fix You’ programme that renders help to those whose hair has been mismanaged by other salons.
With the salon’s ‘Only Hair Directors Allowed’ policy – where all stylists have either a minimum of 12 years’ experience or are exceptionally skilled in their area of expertise, you can certainly count on Chez Vous to keep your frizzy hair in check.
An upgraded anti-frizz treatment
Here, you can try the new and improved Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination, which is an upgraded version of the salon’s signature anti-frizz treatment.
While most hair treatments talk the talk and promise softness, smoothness, shine, and reduced frizz, not all of them walk the walk as well as Chez Vous’ game-changing Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination.
That’s because it’s developed with a no-nonsense scientific approach to help improve hair’s manageability and health, with effects that really last – up to six weeks if you maintain with the prescribed Oribe Gold Lust Repair & Restore Shampoo and Conditioner duo.
Featuring a cocktail of power ingredients, including award-winning sugar-based hair-strengthening actives, hyaluronic acid, linoleic acid, vitamin C, and natural amino acids, Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination takes only 60 minutes – not two hours or more – to render your mane visibly healthier-looking, stronger, and less frizzy.
While the Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination isn’t advised for permed hair as it has the ability to relax soft curls and waves by up to three levels, you can easily perm or rebond your locks three weeks after the treatment without any complication as it does not realign hair bonds like conventional keratin treatments.
The best part? The treatment, which is suitable for most hair types, can even be done immediately after hair colouring without altering or fading your hair dye!
Worried that the Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination will give you flat, pin-straight locks? You can cast your worries aside because this hair therapy offers hair-smoothing effects without completely straightening or de-volumising your mane, so your hair looks effortlessly natural and sleek as if you’re born with it.
For maintenance, Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination requires that you schedule a treatment session once every three months in order to upkeep the natural-looking smoothness in your hair. What’s even better is that each subsequent treatment is capable of amplifying the effectiveness of the previous treatment, making your hair look better, smoother, and softer over time!
The 60-minute Advanced Sugar Hair Lamination is priced from S$235 onwards, depending on your hair length. If you’re looking for a treatment with intense curl-reducing effects, you can opt for the Supreme Sugar Hair Lamination – the 150-minute procedure offers results that last up to 12 weeks and is priced from S$305 onwards.

Brazilian Blowout: Picasso Hair Studio
Picasso Hair Studio is best known for their specialisation in perming and colouring, and is always looking for innovative, new services to bring to their customers. This is why we weren’t surprised to know that Picasso offers a newer type of smoothing treatment that performs just like – if not better than – traditional keratin hair treatments, and delivers more than just anti-frizz result.
Called the Brazilian Blowout service, this treatment is said to provide a more natural-looking result. It gives anti-frizz results for up to three months and you’ll love that your hair still looks natural and soft, instead of stiff and heavy from the straightness.
What’s more, results can be customised. You can speak to your Picasso stylist to decide if you prefer to maintain natural waves in your hair or to have a smooth, sleek finish; your stylist will be able to adjust the ironing process accordingly. You’ll be happy to know that your hair will look natural, flowy, and its volume maintained after the session – in other words, it’s your hair but better!
While traditional keratin hair treatments offer great results, there’s a bit of a hassle: hair cannot be washed 24 to 48 hours after the treatment. The Brazilian Blowout service offers more convenience; it allows you to rinse out your hair right after the service so you can see immediate results.
What this means is that you can get back to your usual routine right away: enjoying a comforting hair wash, go for your regular workout, and put your hair into a ponytail – things that can’t be done if you have gone for a traditional keratin treatment.
That’s not all, the Brazilian Blowout service also stands out from other keratin treatments as it allows the hair to be permed after just two months. By contrast, certain traditional keratin treatments make it difficult for hair to be permed after the service as your hair may have been treated with certain types of chemicals to achieve a silky straight finish.
The Brazilian Blowout service is suitable for all hair types – whether you have wavy, straight, curly, or even “coily” hair, you’d be able to benefit from it. And the benefits aren’t just superficial: this hair treatment is able to improve your hair’s condition, thanks to the Brazilian Super Nutrient Complex used in the process, which creates a protective protein layer around your hair shaft to eliminate frizz. You can trust Picasso Hair Studio to consider this factor because they’re dedicated to caring for the integrity of their customers’ hair while making sure they look good!
The Brazilian Blowout service is priced according to your hair length: S$275 (short), S$300 (medium), and S$320 (long), and comes with a complimentary haircut by Picasso’s hair designer. For a haircut by Picasso’s creative director or master trainer, there will be a surcharge of $20 or $40 respectively.

Cinderella Treatment: Leekaja Beauty Salon
Keratin treatments get an upgrade at the Cinderella Treatment by Leekaja Beauty Salon. This popular service at the Korean hair salon uses natural ingredients – a mixture of onion and organic aloe vera – to moisturise and repair hair before infusing keratin into it.
A sought-after treatment in South Korea, the Cinderella Treatment is especially recommended for those who have bleached and damaged hair, unmanageable hair, frizzy hair, and curly hair so that your tresses become smoother and easier to style or comb through.
Cinderella Treatment review
My hair has been bleached a few months ago and while I love the colours that I managed to achieve, after everything fades off, I’m left with a dirty blonde colour and very unruly, dry hair.
On normal days, I won’t even be able to comb through my hair properly unless I have used a ton of conditioner during shower.
When I met Leekaja’s Senior Director Isaac, he told me the Cinderella Treatment is perfect for a candidate like me. He assured me that it doesn’t use any harsh chemicals and that I wasn’t going to get pin-straight hair (think rebonding in 1990s) – something I was very concerned about.
The whole session took approximately 120 minutes, but the two hours were quite easy to while away with the beverages Leekaja Beauty Salon provided and the light conversations I had with the stylist.
The result was immediately evident.
I love that I can now comb through and manage my hair a lot easier without the help of excessive conditioner. It has definitely shortened my haircare routine and hairstyling time. My colleagues also all thought that I had gone for a fresh hair colouring session because the remaining colours from my last colouring treatment looked fresher and more vibrant than before.
The effect is also quite long lasting. Now that more than one month has passed, while my hair isn’t as straight and smooth as it was on Day 1, it is still relatively manageable and I retained my natural waves, which I love.
According to Isaac, the treatment’s effect typically last for around three months and you can go back for another treatment then to maintain the result. The Cinderella Treatment, he said, can also be paired with other services such as rebonding or even perming to create the effect desired. You can speak to a Leekaja stylist to customise the look you prefer.
