HYDRATE YOUR HAIR (SAVE 50%)
Dry hair happens when your hair doesn’t get or retain enough moisture. This reduces its sheen, making it look frizzy and dull.
The I Need Moisture Experience at Excentric Hair includes a detailed camera diagnosis to examine the health of your hair and scalp, a deep cleanse, moisturising shampoo, personalised moisture-infusing anti-dryness shot treatment, nourishing mask, head and scalp massage, split end-eliminating cut, smoothing blow dry, flat iron styling and 10% off any products you purchase.
The whole process takes about 90 minutes and CapeTownMagazine.com readers can get it for 50% off, at R769.

SAY FAREWELL TO FRIZZ (FOR 50% LESS)
Frizzy hair is one of the most common issues clients report at Excentric Hair. Heat styling, over-washing, harsh hair products, washing your hair in very hot water, dryness and humidity are some of the frizz culprits.
The Frizz Dismiss Experience includes a consultation with a stylist, an anti-frizz heated treatment, neck, head and scalp massage, a precision cut, heat protectant blow wave, flat iron styling, hand massage and a precision brow thread and tint.
The process takes about 90 minutes, and CapeTownMagazine.com readers get it for R665 (usually R1330).

GET A PRECISION CUT
Regular cutting – or trimming if you’re trying to grow your hair – keeps your hair looking healthy and helps prevent split ends.
Excentric Hair’s highly-trained and skilled stylists will get to know your lifestyle, hair concerns and hair goals, and suggest a cut accordingly.
Precision cutting at Excentric Hair starts at R190 for a men’s clipper cut, and from R505 for a women’s cut and blow dry (they also cut kids’ hair). All hair cut services include a wash with shampoo and conditioner to suit your hair needs. If it’s your first visit to the salon and you spend R300 or more, you’ll get R100 off.
