X-Tenso Hair Treatment

X-Tenso treatment relaxes wavy or frizzy hair to make it sleek and shiny.

The technique

X-Tenso contains waxes that soften the hair, and L Oreal’s Nutri-Cationic Technology that boosts your hair’s condition and delivers the treatment to where it is needed. X-Tenso makes your hair shiny, smooth and soft for up to 8 weeks after treatment.

How it works

We apply a pre-treatment to dry hair to help the hair get ready to accept the X-Tenso treatment. The pre-treatment is then rinsed out and X-Tenso is applied to the hair in sections, before being washed out. We blow dry your hair to approx 80% and straighten it, before starting the X-Tenso process once again.

When the treatment process has finished, we dry and style your hair. You will be able to wash, blow dry and style your hair as normal afterwards, keeping your hair shiny and smooth for up to 8 weeks!

  • Will I need a skin allergy test for a colour?

    If you are having a colour or highlights added to your hair, you will need a skin test at least 48 hours prior to the appointment to test for any reaction to the colour. You will need this if you are new to the salon, if you haven’t had a skin test before, or if you haven’t had one for the past 6 months. The test takes 48 hours for any reaction to show and the result is valid for 30 days.

  • What do I do if I don't like my hair?

    Our technicians and stylists are all very experienced and we are very confident that you will leave the salon feeling amazing! If there is anything that you don’t like however, then please talk openly to our stylists and we can adjust the colour or style accordingly.

  • What products do you use at your salon?

    We use a range of professional products that provide beautiful results. We use the beautiful Olaplex products for conditioning, and Organic Colour Systems for colour bonding as we believe that these give the best results for our clients. Many of our products are available to purchase to use at home too, simply ask your stylist what the best products are for your hair.

  • Do I need to have a consultation first?

    We always recommend a free consultation so that we can discuss the best way forward and give your appointment the full time that it needs. Consultations are free and can be booked with your stylist. All Balayage appointments require free consultations beforehand so that we can look at your hair and plan the correct time for your appointment.

  • How do I book an appointment?

    You can book all of our services, excluding Balayage, via our online system. If you are looking to book a Balayage appointment, please call us on 01256 814600 and our lovely team will be on hand to help!
