A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to get a JOICO Hair Rejuvenating System Treatment.

As I was having my hair washed and treated, MiMi, a JOICO hair consultant was telling me how the treatment worked with each step.  It was very informative, and it was great knowing what was actually happening to your hair.  Found out that the treatment puts back the 19 amino acids your hair needs.

MiMi then gave me a pamphlet showing me how the JOICO treatment worked on each hair strand.



How it works

How it works

You’ll see that it’s a 4-step treatment.   It pretty much reconstructs your hair with real proteins and you can see in step 4 that products are available for you to purchase after your visit to the salon.  I’m not normally one to just believe in everything a product does, however this is a high-end product and not something mass-produced that you find in any store.  It’s definitely a quality product.  MiMi explained to me that very little product is actually needed due to it being concentrated.  So your shampoo & conditioner will last you very long.  However, nothing beats being pampered at the EDL Salon.

JOICO 4-step treatment has also been featured on;
