High-Tech Consultation at André Richard Salon

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen my story from this past weekend at the André Richard Salon. I received a few “ummmm what are you doing” DMs, so with that being said, I’m so excited to share my experience about it on the blog!

I met with ARS owner and master stylist, the amazing Drea Richard, who gave me quite the inside look into my scalp. And I mean, quite the inside look. ARS Salon recently invested in a new capilliscope: a pen-like devise that magnifies the scalp 500 times. This scope can give you a better glimpse into your hair troubles, and also detect suspicious moles or warts. Best of all, the scalp analysis is free to all ARS clients; there is no charge for this service. It’s more than just a beauty treatment, it’s a preventative health treatment, as well.

Drea began the consultation by running the scope and analyzing my scalp. I could not believe what I was seeing on the screen in front of me!

I’ve always said “my hair is greasy,” or my “hair is dry,” but Drea gave me a much needed education on what I should actually be saying and how I should be treating my scalp. She told me to think of my scalp as the soil for my hair to grow and nourish, and to treat the scalp first. So when I was saying my hair was greasy, it was actually the hair products I was using that were negatively affecting my scalp and creating a “greasy” build-up.

After determining what was the cause of my scalp issues, Drea gave me an amazing treatment with products that seeped into the roots. Here’s a look at some of the products that remedied my scalp:

After a blow-out, it was time to take a look at the results; the before and after was incredible!

It’s been about three days since the treatment, and my hair feels incredible and refreshed. It was a great experience, and I loved everything about the ARS environment! Let me tell you, it was WILD to see your scalp up close and personal like that, and I’m so happy I did it.

It’s also certainly worth noting that ARS was named Best Salon two years in a row and Best Stylist for Him by Philadelphia Weekly, Best Hair Color Salon by Fox Philly Hot List, featured in Vogue and Philadelphia Style Magazine, Parade, The Washington Post and Lucky Magazine.
