Why your weekly hair spa is a waste of money

So you’ve destroyed your hair by doing every chemical treatment on the planet because, well because you were told it was needed now they tell you “Mam you need a weekly hair spa” then have the nerve to tell you if you buy 5 you get one free. Like oh we ruined it but to fix it we can save you some money 😫


Problem is if your hair is that fried no amount of treatments will bring it back to life. Prevention is the best treatment yet very few value the word NO when it comes to getting what you want. Now sure there are products that can artificially rebuild the structure of your hair to some extent and will most definately help but a hair spa? Nope it’s basically conditioner in a jar labelled “hair spa” which is a superficial product and won’t do anything much after you have walked out of the salon.

Some salons put you under a steamer, telling you it opens the cuticle and helps penetrate. What it does is swell the hair by heating it up causing the cuticle to feel smooth until the swelling goes down. Yep you think wow it feels better but in fact the next day after you wash it, it’s exactly the same.

Healthy hair is hair that has been looked after by proper applications of color, regular trims and good hair care regime. Just because a salon offers a treatment or service doesn’t mean you should do it.

Summer & fresh AF

The temperature is on the rise and as a community announcement we thought we needed to remind you of a few hair care FACTS


It’s true, we all believe what we want to believe but there is fact and fiction. 

Here are a few more common things that do more harm than good and you should not do!

  • Oil on your hair, leaves a film which accelerates heat dehydrating the hair causing damage like split ends, color fading and possible scalp bacteria hence actually could lead to hair loss!
  • Onion juice, no seriously apart from the smell ( which FYI is disgusting for days! ) doesn’t nothing for your hair, the thought that the juice somehow penetrates into the skin through to to the root of the hair and does anything is beyond realistic! 
  • Rubbing ginger on your scalp, again 🤐 it creates warmth on your scalp which makes you think it’s beneficial but nothing
  • Fish oil………creates and breeds bacteria and is possibly the most anti social DIY Ever heard of
  • Egg 🍳- hair outside your scalp is dead keratin. Fry it put it in between two pieces of hair and eat it!
  • Beer 🍻 the yeast in beer sweeps the cuticle making it appear shinny hence you think it help. Yeast is bacteria, bacteria breeds infection so drink it.  

Hope that helps in understanding the facts when it comes to Summer hair care!

Start summer with a trim, remove the split ends, rehydrate using a linseed treatment ( which your hair will love! ) and repeat process every 6-8 weeks. 

When you have taken your hair across the line!

When you place an order on line and it says shipping more than 24-48 hours you feel robbed right? Well imagine your hairdresser saying your hair can’t take a chemical service, a color, that keratin you so desperately want because it’s too damaged…. upset maybe even angry. 

We believe there are times when we have to say no, it’s about being ethical and respecting there are times when what you want is not actually what you want. Sure we assure you there is a salon within walking distance from every “no” you get that will do whatever you want, but we are only interested in making you look the best possible. 


If your hair has been taken over the edge and the condition sucks as Donald Trumps concept of humanity then here are the things you need to do. 

  • Get yourself a second opinion from the best salon you can find, not cutting nothing just a consultation. 
  • Depending on how bad it is the only option may be cutting it, lots of options for repairing however the only true way to get it back to healthy may be cutting the damage off. 
  • Don’t do another chemical service to fix the one that ruined your hair. 
  • The term “hair spa” sadly is used for a conditioner massage.  Waste of time and money. Olaplex and various bond rebuilders work, hair spa doesn’t. 
  • Always condition 
  • Always use a leave in serum
  • Avoid any oils always!
  • Don’t use excessive heat when styling. 
  • Trim every 5-6 weeks until the hair is healthy again. 

Remember a professional salon will never charge you for advice, it’s free so use it!

I can see your underwear, move along

We are not talking about VPL ( Visable Panty Line ) rather talking about being transparent in the way you behave, too often the motives take over and it becomes a game of skill to get what you want, using people as the pawns rather than the required skill to actually do a good job! When you think about being transparent with hair, we could turn this into a short film but rather lets just point out why some times we say no to doing certain things and the reason we do this is because its about being the best for you and your hair.

When it comes to your hair, we only have one motivation and that is to create beautiful hair that works both for that split moment in time when you leave the salon but more importantly for the time after you leave the salon! There are some things we wont do like rebonding or straightening as it is too damaging on the hair, there are times when you may want to do a chemical service but we do not believe your hair health will be maintained so we will say no. We do this because we look after your hair’s best interest.

Isn’t it more important to do things right once rather than having something done that requires the next 4-6 months fixing it or repairing it?

Treat your hair like you do your skin!

So before you read whatever you want into this let’s set aside some not so ground breaking facts. Doesn’t matter if your growing it or simply want good growth you need to have to plan for success in whatever you do. 

The basics of skin care is cleanse,tone & moisturise 

Obviously or maybe not so obviously, when your cleanse your hair you must condition ( which will close the cuticle ) or the internal moisture of the hair shaft will be liable to decrease causing breakage, split ends and color fading. Yes we heard the stories too that conditioner makes your hair fall out, but we had a little chuckle because it’s a myth!

Conditioner closes the cuticle and makes the outer surface of the hair smooth, reflecting light, protecting the structural integrity of the hair or in basic terms keeping it healthy. 

Steps to a healthy hair care regime


Shampoo

Choose a shampoo that looks after your problems, if it’s coloured the choose a shampoo to look after the color etc. Yes Sulfate free shampoo is always our preference as it is less harmful on the quality of the hair. We use and recommend Alfa Parf & Label M products. 

Conditioner 

You choose a conditioner based on the texture of your hair, regardless of the thickness all hair once it has been shampooed needs conditioning. If the conditioner your using makes it too limp your either using something too strong or possibly applying it on the wrong area, it’s for hair not scalp. 

Mask or a leave in conditioner

Now depending on the quality of your hair, you may need a mask which is typically more intense than a regular conditioner and again depending on condition but would be done once a week or fortnight at home. 

A leave in conditioner or a protein spray is or hair that is fine and limp, it replaces a typical conditioner and is used every time you shampoo. 

Serum, this is a leave in product and used when the cuticle is stubborn AF or your hair is always on the dry side. This is done in conjunction with everything else it doesn’t replace. 

So now you know what it takes to daily look after your hair, the more time you invest in getting the right products the less time and money you will need to spend in the salon. Make sure you trim regularly ( every 6-8 week ) regardlessly. 

The one thing that will save your hair this winter!

Pollution levels that have shocked and  the world, a cooler climate with vertically zero moisture in the air we are headed into the most destructive climate. Without this secret weapon your hair simply won’t survive!


The miracle is called a Linseed treatment by Alfa Parf Milano. 

If your “go to” has always been a hair Spa then it’s time you just forget that and spoil your hair with this life saver!

” Semi De Lino Diamanté ” linseed treatment adds shine, softness & luminosity to dry and dull hair with linseed oil complex ( omega 3 omega 6 fatty acids and vitamins). It repairs capillary fibers and seals the cuticle leaving the hair softer,smoother and retaining moisture levels in your hair. 

Oh and I forgot to tell you that you won’t need 4-6 sessions or multiple add ons.  It’s one sitting, if your hair is super damaged you may need to follow it up in 3-4 weeks however for hair that is coloured or past your shoulders we recommend once every 6-8 weeks when your visiting to get your color or cut done.
