Fresh hair for Summer?

I’m sure a lot of you have gone to the salon in hope that some miracle happens, you may even have thought that by us just touching your hair without cutting it or colouring it, miracles might happen.

Well we are the hair whisperers but there is limits to the magic in our hands. A freshen up may not mean redoing your color, it may be just a small tweak to get your hair looking new again, remembering it doesn’t have to be dramatic to make s big difference.

If you need something done, we will tell you but if you don’t need it we will tell you that too!

So if you are simply bored and not really sure what to do to your hair to drag it into a fresh season and fear of looking the same year after year, then give us a call!

Summer is coming is your hair ready?

Finally in this part of the world the cold days and even colder nights are coming to an end. It’s only going to be a matter of weeks and the temperature won’t drop below 30 for the next 7-8 months.

Now if you are like most, we have our wardrobe semi ready but our hair? Is your hair ready for this heat? How can you protect it and get it ready?

Here are a few ways to get your hair summer ready!

  • Regular trims, every 6 weeks to remove the ends and prevent split ends travelling up the hair.
  • Good haircare routine, doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. A Sulfate free shampoo and always condition.
  • A leave in moisturiser. Spray mist is best as it won’t weigh down your hair.
  • Don’t over heat it, use hot tools if you must but use s protecting serum and don’t overdo it. Once a week is ok

The thought that a hair spa fixes everything is a myth, it may hydrate but it’s temporary. Try our Linseed oil treatment which packs your hair with moisture, do it once a month you will love it!

Summer Ready Hair

While we all thought that Summer was here for the past month or two well guess what, its officially summer in 48 hours and there is more heat heading our way! When it comes to our hair and skin we all suffer from dehydration and no matter what we all read about drinking lots of water at times it becomes difficult for whatever excuse we can come up with be it too busy or plain forgot. I am sure that most people think about their hair hydration only once they are in the salon ( unless your one of the rare ones and in that case congratulations ).

We thought we would make your life easier by giving you a few helpful hints that is far greater than doing a name sake “hair spa” to make sure your hair is at its peak and not  like a dried up prawn.

 

  1. Hair Spa typically is a glorified conditioner, a conditioner closes the cuticle and in doing so will make your hair look and feel better however its temporary. You need to condition every time you shampoo, open the cuticle you have to close it.
  2. A massage will relax you, it won’t do anything else, especially for your hair. Yes it helps with circulation, however so does a full body massage but neither is going to brings miracles.
  3. Oiling your hair- well this is a Myth buster! Oil and water don’t mix right? Your hair is dead before it leaves your scalp, Oil doesn’t penetrate into the skin does it? Now if that isn’t enough think about adding oil on your body and standing out in the sun, it would make your skin burn right? YES same goes with your hair, even if you wash it off there is always a fine layer of residue left which will increase the heat internally and then causing dehydration.
  4. Serum – Easy answer is YES, always after you have washed and conditioned, if you hair goes flat then your using the wrong serum or too much!
  5. Leave in conditioner, again if its too heavy then change the one your using. Every time you shampoo and condition and use serum then a leave in conditioner.
  6. Shampoo Everyday? With extra heat comes perspiration, if you don’t remove that from your scalp then it can create bacteria on your scalp and therefore effect the growth. You should be using a shampoo and conditioner for your hair, if its colored then a sulphate free shampoo to reduce the color fading. Always use a conditioner. 150-200 hairs falling out per day is NORMAL.
  7. Always comb your hair with a wide tooth comb when you have the conditioner in, while your in the shower.
