Your first time visiting a new country is always memorable, but my first trip to France was one for the books! I had an opportunity to attend the Cannes Film Festival and visit Paris with Dessange and learn more about their products. Admittedly, I had only used a few products in the prior months, so I was eager to find out more about the brand and visit their iconic salon in Paris.
Our first stop in France was in the coastal town of Cannes, where they were holding the annual Cannes Film Festival. We had a chance to see one of the films starring Kristen Stewart and witnessed the madness surrounding the festival. We also visited the Dessange suite at our hotel to learn about their new launches, and this was where I got really excited! Their product range is so different from what I typically see, most especially from mass market products, and there were several that I had my eye on. One product they’re going to be releasing in early 2017 is a green colored treatment for brunettes. Yes, green! For those of us who have dark hair, it’s hard to lighten without getting brassy tones, so the green is excellent for canceling out any brassiness in darker hair. Hopefully I can get my hands on it soon and show you how it works!
Another product that I personally loved was the Dessange Purifying Clay Pre-Shampoo Mask. Unfortunately, prior to my trip, I got a Brazilian blowout that left my scalp peeling off, (new person, don’t ask! It looks like I had dandruff for days. Ugh.) so when we arrived at the Dessange Salon in Paris, they had just the remedy for me. They applied the Purifying Clay Pre-Shampoo Mask all over my scalp and that in itself was such a nice experience because it cooled and soothed my scalp. When they rinsed that out, shampooed and conditioned, and blow dried my hair, there wasn’t a trace of peeling scalp left! I wasn’t expecting to get instant relief like that but they knew exactly what to do to fix me up. After my treatment the staff at the Dessange Salon proceeded to style my hair, giving me big, bouncy waves, and that completed my experience at Paris’ most well-known salon!
Since I’m learning more about the Dessange product line, I also want to give you guys a chance to try them out and learn more about them, too!
