This super-fast treatment, Intensive Revival System (IRS), is like a less harsh version of the 12-week blowdry, and promises sleek, soft and shiny hair without the straightening properties.

The treatment aims to infuse extra keratin into your hair, to leave it stronger and less prone to frizz.

First, my hair was shampooed and towel dried, before the conditioner was applied from root to lengths. 

This was left for five minutes to infuse, before being rinsed from my hair thoroughly.

Next, the second, leave-in conditioner was applied. My hair was blowdried straight and a flat iron was used as a last step to fully infuse the product in my hair.

This is a really lovely, luxurious treatment with the added bonus of taking just 15 minutes longer than your average blowdry, so if you're time-poor this festive season (who isn't?!) then it could be just for you.

You can avail of the Intensive Revival System treatment at Queen for €55 including blowdry.
