chromabond service at azta urban salon (review)

I visited Azta Urban Salon in Eastwood several days ago to try out their new Chromabond service.

Chromabond uses the the same technique as L'Oreal's steampod/steambond service but with the added bonus of getting your hair colored at the same time...without damaging it, of course.

Azta Urban Salon is located at the 2nd floor of Eastwood Citywalk.

The salon is spacious and clean with a minimalistic feel.

Here's my "before" you can can notice, it is quite naturally wavy with some root re-growth.

The whole process of getting a Chromabond lasts about 3-4 hours so I suggest you visit the salon with a full stomach and bring something like an iPad to bide your time.

The service itself consists of several treatment intervals similar to a Keratin Hair treatment (if you've done that before..) If you haven't, it's a variety of creams applied to your hair in intervals with a shampoo. There's also a step wherein they seal the product into your hair using the steampod iron as seen in the photo below:

Which is then followed by what I think are hair masks of some sort. Bottomline, it's a very precise process which makes you feel like you're really getting your money's worth of product and service.

After what seemed like the entire afternoon, my hair was finally done. The result is fresh out of the salon looking hair without the need to spend minutes or hours on styling.

Just like a Keratin Treatment, you're not supposed to wash your hair for 48 hours after the service to make the most out your treatment and ensure that your hair absorbs maximum moisture and protection from the products that were applied.

The difference between a regular dye job and Chromabond is that you don't really get to pick your color. I was told it's more of like an improved cellophane treatment/rebond in one. My hair is now about two shades darker in a warm brown.

And here it is at yesterday's Bloggers United without the benefit of a blow dry...just wash and wear...

It honestly always looks as if I spent time and effort on my hair when I actually didn't. Leaving the salon, I didn't expect it to look half this good days after but it does. 

Chromabond is perfect for on the go people like me who need to look presentable but without much time to spend on primping. I cannot imagine having another bad hair day after getting this service done....really, it seems impossible now because every single strand of hair always falls perfectly into place even when I first wake up in the morning plus it's softer and shinier than ever. It's kind of a little miracle.
