With a new, trendy hair color popping up practically every week, it’s tempting to change your hue as often as you change your mood. But this comes with its consequences: namely, dryness, dullness, and damage. So, what’s a dye-hard to do? First, don’t freak out. Second, look for a solution that works specifically for the needs of damaged hair. And if you don’t have time to look, follow our reco—because we think we’ve found The One to fix it all.
Recently, we met up with singer and social media muse Saab Magalona, who switches up her look on the regular. Sporting a full head of ash blonde hair, the Cheats frontwoman was due for some much-needed TLC. Lucky for the BeautyMNL team, we got to tag along with Saab to one of her go-to salons, Regine’s. The purpose behind her appointment: to get an Absolute Repair + DiaLight Treatment. Powered by two moisturizing masks, this treatment fights issues like breakage and dullness, ultimately improving the appearance of fried hair. In short, it brings healthy back.
See exactly what happened during our afternoon with Saab at Regine’s Ortigas! You’ve got to see the before and after.

STEP 1: SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER

A brisk yet thorough wash cleansed Saab’s hair and refreshed her scalp. This ensured a clean slate for all the steps that followed.

STEP 2: L’OREAL DIALIGHT CLEAR


After Saab’s hair was rinsed, the L’Oréal DiaLight Clear Formula was applied to it in sections. The stylist applied this ammonia-free cream using a paintbrush look-alike to make sure each and every strand was coated. The application began at Saab’s scalp and went all the way to the ends of her hair. Meant to enhance the shine and the color of her hair, this treatment was left to set for 20 minutes.

STEP 3: FIRST RINSE

Once the mask had set, Saab’s hair was rinsed clean once again.

STEP 4: L’OREAL ABSOLUT REPAIR MASQUE

To supplement the DiaLight Clear Formula, Saab’s hair was then coated in the L’Oréal Absolut Repair Masque. Unlike regular conditioners that provide only superficial care, this hair masque was formulated to go deep, deep down into the hair shaft, flooding it with intense hydration. The result: strong, supple, and smooth hair!

STEP 5: FINAL RINSE

To remove any excess product from the hair, a final rinse was performed.

STEP 6: BLOW-DRY AND STYLING

The stylist finished off Saab’s hair with a sleek, chic blowout. Have a look!

That’s what we call healthy hair. The treatment gave an instant glossy finish to Saab’s hair and left it super duper soft. Now, doesn’t that dye job look brand-new to you?
