How to get natural curls

We have been asked this a LOT, its kind of one of those things that even after you are told it feels like you are missing something, like we are holding back one deep dark secret! There is a lot of hairstylists we have been told that over work the hair and create work making it look like its effortless ( which has the opposite effect! )

Well the way we feel about the “Diffuser” pictured above being taken for a ride is more than love! Its the one tool that no matter what, can’t be replaced, it is basic and been around for years but brilliant!

Not an expensive tool, fits most hairdryers and once on disperses the heat and air to create a “soft blow” ( Pun intended! ) Using it slowly and gently to dry your hair, lightly scrunching and we mean lightly and ry it till your hair is about 80% dry then STOP!

Now, if you need a little help then bring your hairdryer and diffuser into the salon we will give you a one on one class on how to create beautiful natural texture that doesn’t look like overdone hair trying to be cool.

So before you start building up your “natural” look hair think twice about using product, possibly a serum but thats about it, remember the more product you use the more it will look simply messy and not have that natural texture to it!

So you’re thinking of colouring your hair?

So you have had a brainwave to color your hair and want it done like yesterday now its on your mind its almost as if it has to be done as soon as possible, so how do you decide what color you should do? You may love your sisters hair or your BFF’s but you have different hair, personality and its not you right!

Because we know that it can be overwhelming to decide do you go lighter, dark, should it look natural or should it be a pastel pink?

We will always discuss color in detail as it is something that needs to be talked about and given the pro’s and con’s as depending on the color it could take you 12-18 months to grow it out so its worth us spending the time to work it out prior! Its always a good idea to head on over to Pinterest and save your favorites and then look and asses what it is you like, you may find once you have all the images laid out that there is a pattern of what you like, it may work it may not but at least you will be able to see them and discuss it with us when you come in.

Its a big decision getting your color done and you should never take an impulse decision based on a spare of the moment thing!

Come in and discuss your options with us, we will take the time to give you the positives and the negatives ( if any ) before you take the decision to do it!

Since when is your Kitchen an option for hair care

Home remedies started pre internet and before there were any other options other than to rely on the information passed down from generation to generation, back then it was all you had, there was no on line shopping, no boutique brands and certainly the only research was based on what your family did or what stories were told.

Now whilst some may sound legit, there are very few that actually work or in fact some have the adverse effect and cause problems rather than cure anything. Somewhat like a placebo you may end up thinking that by doing some of these obscure things you hair may grow longer, thicker, faster and any other promises your 110 year old grandmother tells you!

Now whilst some of the home remedies we have been exposed to are not only crazy but plain disgusting, like onion pulp on your scalp….seriously? If you think putting Olive oil or coconut oil on your scalp is going to miraculously going to solve anything, you really need to get your head right!

Before you go to your fridge, do a little research on this thing called Internet and make the determination yourself, don’t take our opinion as authority its best to get the information yourself then make a decision.

If your planning on asking a professional what food you can put on your hair to “fix it” understand that you have a problem with the basics and you need to come and see us
