Everyone hates a bad hair day. And more often than not, the way to prevent this horror and always have gorgeous hair is to find the right place and people to entrust your crowning glory with. Heads by Volu-med helps you let your hair do all the talking—after all, it is the accessory you wear every day. And together with a smile, it can make you feel like you can dominate the world!
Going beyond the regular haircuts, colors, and treatments a salon can offer, Heads by Volu-med is a hair studio that will cater both to the aesthetic and health of your hair. Their hair products are mostly organic—from shampoos and conditioners to the essential oils they use in their specialty, the microHSA Organic Treatment.
Staying true to their philosophy that a good and healthy hair starts with a well-conditioned scalp, the microHSA Organic Treatment is a scalp treatment to help keep your hair at its best by helping in the prevention of scalp build-ups from dust, sweat, oil, and dandruff. Perfect for us who battle the commuting life here in the Philippines!
The microHSA Organic Treatment is also a very relaxing treat and is great for someone who wants to unwind after a long day or week. The 5-step treatment which focuses on cleansing, exfoliating, and nourishing your scalp uses essences like almond and beer oil to improve blood circulation, and seaweed oil to give the scalp nutrients and keeps it healthy for the long run!
For someone who has done possibly all the damaging things one can do to their hair, from constant rebonding, coloring, curling, rough towel drying, too tight ponytails, putting my hair under extreme heat, it wasn’t a secret that my hair had become brittle over time.
I was going for a balayage look this time, thus bleaching my hair was necessary. The stylists at Heads by Volu-med were quick to reassure me and told me not to worry—they were using Olaplex with the bleaching formula for my hair. Olaplex helps in rebuilding hair that has suffered chemical, thermal, and mechanical damage, and makes the bleaching process less damaging.
If you want your hair makeover to be a bit of a surprise, you can ask them to place you in the VIP room—an optional solo private room you can avail if you don’t want anyone to see what color your hair would be next or what new haircut you have chosen!
Heads by Volu-med also deals in making wigs and hair extensions all made from natural hair—and which they produce and manufacture on their own! Speaking of wigs, you can also donate hair for their CSR (corporate social responsibility) organization Hair for Hope by dropping by their studio.
They say “life isn’t perfect, but your hair can be” so what are you waiting for? Drop by the Heads by Volu-med now and be one step closer to an everyday good hair day!
