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 a few that you should certainly consider.
1. 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 results.
Called the Brazilian Blowout service, this treatment is said to provide a more natural-looking result. It gives anti-frizz results 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 pony tail – things that can’t do if you have gone for a traditional keratin treatment.
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 available at Picasso Hair Studio and is priced according to your hair length: SGD275 (short), SGD300 (medium), and SGD320 (long). It comes with a complimentary haircut by Picasso’s hair designer.

2. K-Gloss: Salon Infinity
Probably one of the most talked about hair treatment recently, K-Gloss is a smoothing treatment that promises to help visibly eliminate frizz by 90%, increase shine and moisture, and even cut down blow drying time by half.
K-Gloss infuses keratin and collagen into hair to “fill in” hair cuticles that have become porous because of chemical treatments. Great for all hair types, K-Gloss doesn’t just help manage frizz, but also helps hair look shinier and healthier. More importantly, you can look forward to natural-looking results; frizzy hair will look smoother while retaining its original body, instead of flat and stick-straight.
One of the salons that offer the K-Gloss treatment is Salon Infinity. A partner of hair care brand Aveda, Salon Infinity uses naturally-derived products and believe in helping customers achieve healthier scalp because it is the foundation of beautiful hair.
K-Gloss is available at Salon Infinity at SGD235.40 and you can get your special voucher here.

3. Argan Oil Anti-Frizz Treatment: Spa Aperial
While keratin treatments fill in porous parts of hair to help it look healthier and smoother, the argan oil anti-frizz treatment is more of a nourishing treatment that helps hair look and feel softer and shinier. Liked by those who shy away from chemical procedures, argan oil treatment is a great alternative.
One of the advantages of getting the argan oil anti-frizz treatment is that results are customisable. You can discuss with your stylist to decide the level of “straightness” you want to see in your hair; if you love the natural curls in your hair, you can request for a milder treatment so that you can still retain those curls while fixing frizz at the same time.
If you have coloured hair, you’d be happy to know that the argan oil anti-frizz treatment won’t strip colour off. In fact, in the hands of an experienced stylist, you may notice that the treatment is able to enhance its vibrancy instead.
Argan Oil Anti-Frizz Treatment is available at Spa Aperial. They’re currently offering it at a special price of just SGD18. Get hold of this promotion here.
