The Test Drive: Wella Care For My Hair Treatment

Fashion and creative director Dan Ahwa treats his scalp to some TLC at French Revolver salon

The promise: For anyone interested in giving their scalp some TLC, this treatment promises to refresh and revitalise your scalp by removing dead skin cells and product build-up and stimulating blood flow.

The practice: This scalp-renewing treatment is offered at Auckland’s award-winning hair salon French Revolver and the in-salon dermabrasion three-step treatment uses the Wella scalp system range, which includes BHA and AHA — good to hydrate and remove dull skin from your scalp.

Creative stylist Chandra Reed began the process with a mask and scalp massage that extended to the base of my neck. The mask was left in my hair for 10 minutes, followed by exfoliation and another massage.

A scalp therapy revitalising conditioner with caffeine and peppermint ends the treatment.

After the basin, Chandra blowdried and styled my hair back to life.

The place: French Revolver Studio, Level 1, 139-141 Victoria St West, Auckland. See

The price: $49. There is another treatment known as the SP Alchemy Treatment for $69.

The verdict: This is a great idea for busy people and the head massage alone is super-relaxing. This dermabrasion treatment is recommended every 30-45 days and is a small price to pay to keep your scalp and hair in check. It’s suited to anyone who has product build-up on their scalp, has a dry, itchy scalp, or if you have fine/ thinning hair.
