Have you heard of SEMI DI LINO? It’s a bestselling hair treatment line from ALFAPARF Milano. Recently I was invited into the brand new ALFAPARF Milano Ireland Academy in Dublin to experience the Semi Di Lino unique three step in-salon treatment to detox, care and gloss.

The Semi Di Lino treatment line has been renewed and enhanced, I was a total newbie to the brand and products. Yes, I had heard of the range but I had never used it. I noticed instant results post-treatment and because of that I feel the need to share my experience with you, the treatment will literally change your hair.

As mentioned above there are three steps to the treatment. Firstly, your stylist will have a chat with you in relation to the condition of your hair, what your main concerns are, how often you colour and how you style it.
|My hair pre-treatment|
I get my hair coloured every 6-8 weeks. For my last colour, I changed from balayage back to blonde highlight with colour. If you are blonde you will know it is high maintenance. My Main hair concerns where dryness and the overall condition of my hair from heat styling (adding waves to my hair).
Your treatment will be based on your personal consultation. Products from the Semi Di Lino range will be used by your stylist as part of your treatment.Post-treatment products from the range will be recommended as part of your home treatment plan.
For my treatment, Ronan from Sebastian Marks recommended that we focus on cleansing my hair, adding moisture and lifting the brassy tones that were present by using pigment.
My treatment was based on the moisture range:
For Dry, lifeless hair
Dry hair low in moisture appears dull and lifeless and becomes increasingly more difficult to manage.
