I had the pleasure of experiencing the K-Day at the Rossano Ferretti Hair Spa at Ritz-Carlton, Bangalore. It was enriching, rejuvenating and refreshing all at once. Everything about the K-Day was perfect – including the beginning. It began with entering the lovely Ritz-Carlton, tucked into a surprisingly tranquil area in the heart of the city! What I liked about Ritz-Carlton was the love and attention given to each and every aspect of the decor. The Christmas decoration imparted a happy and cheerful vibe which instantly lifted my spirits. I captured some awesomeness as I walked towards Rossano Ferretti!

Now I must mention that the day before I made the visit to this heavenly place, I was running high grade fever and while I was driving towards Ritz-Carlton, I was telling myself “The K-Day better be worth this long drive while I am just recovering”. By the time I was at Rossano Ferretti, I was convinced that this visit was totaly worth it :)

I was welcomed by the very beautiful and charming Ashika Tamang who was representing the Kérastase Team. Ashika was extremely hospitable. She made me feel at home. I shared with her, my love for all the lovely Kérastase products I had used so far and she introduced me to a few more.

So much goodness on one shelf :)

As our conversation progressed, we began discussing how today’s urban life makes it essential to have a systematic hair care regime. Visiting a Salon gives hair the much needed pampering and all is well for a day or two till things slip back into neglect. Like skin, daily care is essential for hair but it is rare to see women taking out time to take care of their tresses on a daily basis. Washing and conditioning hair twice or thrice a week is just not enough. Care in between washes is equally important and that’s where leave-in products come to our rescue.

In fact, Kérastase has products suited for difference hair and scalp types which makes home care so personalised. Ashika took me through a scalp and hair analysis. Kérastase has effectively leveraged technology to come up with this interesting hand held device that analyses scalp and hair.

So after the analysis I got to know that my scalp is extremely sensitive and dry. My hair is dry and damaged too. Based on the analysis Ashika recommended the following products for me.

I actually got to try these products during the hair wash at Rossano Ferretti and I loved the effect.
