KeraSoul's cryo treatment for hair remedies everything from bald spots to dandruff
Now, you can remedy everything from bald patches to dandruff within an hour. And founders of Australia-based skincare and wellness brand KeraSoul, Sankalp and Manisha Chopra, tell us the process is entirely organic. The brand which launched earlier this April under the parent company SeaSoul (opened in 2012) will launch what they claim is the world’s first CRYO treatment for hair in Chennai today. The process uses fumes as cold as -196 degrees Celsius to detox the scalp and stimulate collagen, apart from a number of other benefits. Excerpts from an interview with Manisha:
We’ve heard about cryotherapy for the body. But how different is the process for hair?
Cryotherapy for the body is used to provide relief for someone with muscle pain, joint pain or healing of injuries, whereas cryotherapy for hair is used to seal the hair cuticles with nutrition and also to stimulate collagen. This has to be done in coordination with the activator serum. At KeraSoul, we have an activator serum that has to be applied; all the nutrients from the serum are locked into the cuticles through the cryo process.
Can you break down the science behind cryo detox for hair — for the layman?
It’s basically detox for hair just like you detox your body. There is a lot of build-up in the hair from the usage of water, chemicals, sprays etc. Because with all this build up over a period of time, the hair follicles start to get damaged and die, which results in bald patches. The CRYO Detox treatment removes this layer completely and lets the hair follicles breathe. The idea behind the treatment is to detoxify your hair completely providing health to hair naturally.
What are some of the ailments that this treatment can remedy?
It reduces hair fall, bald patches for people who have just started developing this recently, as well as for people who have just started balding — since there is still life in the hair, you can revive it.
And how many sessions of what duration would it take to see results?
The duration per session is one to one-and-a-half hours. You can start seeing results from the first session. The number of sessions depend on how big your hair problem is. There is a home care kit given along with it, you need to follow the process and instructions to see proper results.
Is this long-lasting or would a client have to undergo frequent sessions to keep conditions like alopecia for instance, at bay?
It is long-lasting provided the home-care system is followed properly. Your hair condition determines how frequently you need these CRYO sessions.
Are there any precautions to keep in mind before using CRYO detox treatment for hair?
Not really. Naturally organic products are used. So no precautions are needed, as such.
Launches today. Available at Bounce, Oryza, Page 3, Toni&Guy, Studio Profile and Limelight. Price: INR 2,000 upwards (depending on hair length and growth).
