Professional Hair Smoothing Treatments and your health

If you considering a transition, away from a Chemical Relaxers or Japanese Straightener and into a Keratin Hair Smoothing Treatment, consult with one of the professionals at Progressions salon spa store in Rockville first to help you decide which process would be best for you and your lifestyle.

Progressions is committed to offering their guests the healthiest solution.  They offer a formaldehyde free, amino acid based, Hair Smoothing Treatment that is plant, and not chemically, derived.  Since breakthrough bonding technologies that are now available, the treatments actually improves the health and condition of the hair by creating a protective keratin layer around the hair shaft which eliminates frizz and smooths the cuticle.   The end result is healthy, frizz-free hair with radiant shine!  Most treatments last 10- 12 weeks.leti2

Over exposure is the greatest concern so Progressions has limited both, the total number treatments one Service Provider can perform, and the total number of treatments the salon performs as a whole on a daily basis.  To assure safety, Progressions hired an environmental hygienist to run air quality tests and they are proud to report that their air quality is consistently, well within the regulated limits.

They suggest that guests continue to blow their hair dry, even after receiving a Hair Smoothing Treatment, to achieve the optimal results.

For appointment requests, please call Guest Services at 301.231.8757 or e-mail them at  Schedule your complimentary consultation today.

Now is the time for self care!

January is a great time to take advantage of a less hectic salon experience.  At Progressions salon spa store in Rockville, MD, we suggest you try something new, allowing a little extra time to take good care of yourself or even re-create your personal look. Winter_Months.250

Maybe there’s a facial you have never experienced.  Something hydrating to offset the way  winter weather dry out your skin, or a makeup lesson you have been wanting to help accentuate your new hair color, a Gelish pedicure would make your toes dazzling and take you through an extended vacation without needing attention, or a MINX manicure to add some pizzazz to a special occasion.  Now is the time to make room to take care of yourself.  Self-care is an important feature to implement into your daily routine for 2013.
