After recently reading an article that was completely wrong, even after being asked for the answers, we thought it best to share again some facts about washing your hair to set things straight. Hairdressing is doing hair and to get others opinions, whilst we welcome that with open arms its best to get hair advice from people who are qualified doing hair not your mum, aunt, vegetable guy or your plumber.

Some say washing your hair every day can cause hair loss?
Well the easy answer is no, however it’s wrong if you use the right shampoo and keep your scalp clean then you are doing everything to have a healthy scalp which means healthy hair growth. If you use a shampoo that is drying or too aggressive, then it can affect your scalp PH level therefore possible increase hair loss ( note that it won’t be the only cause and we have never seen someone go bald from shampoo fyi )
Should you water down shampoo?
Absolutely not, this is 100% false both shampoo and co dituonrr in fact should be used in damp hair and excess moisture removed before using it!
Can we apply shampoo directly to your scalp?
Directly onto your scalp yes, isn’t that the purpose? Take from bottle into your hands then apply it directly to your scalp massage well from scalp to ends rinse and repeat if desired!
Do all chemicals damage your hair?
No, if your colouring your hair “out of a box” or trying to DIY chances are whatever you do may do damage. Colouring your hair shouldn’t cause it to look or feel damaged unless your doing other things that effect it! Don’t do home remedies thinking they are all good, some in fact cause more damage than chemicals!
If I want full hair, can I skip conditioner because that makes my hair flat?
No, if it’s too heavy then use something specifically for your hair. Conditioner closes the cuticle of the hair ( the outside layer ) snd prevents moisture leaving the hair!
Does frizziness cause hair fall?
Absolutely not!! Hair fall comes from inside your scalp, breakage is external. Some people have naturally frizzy hair that no product on planet earth can tame, doesn’t mean your going to be bald. Split ends eventually break off if not cut at some point!
Be careful where you get your information from, sadly a lot of wrong information is out there, do your own research and try to get advice from people doing hair. Remember, a makeup artist does makeup, a numerologist studies numbers, a builder builds houses.
We all go through days, weeks or even months feeling less than great about ourselves it’s life. However you look at it, there is usually only one person who can change it and that’s you! Life is beautiful and while we all go through rough patches where it can seem to be overwhelmingly bad, it too changes and with harnessing the right energy you can be back on top.
From all of the incredible people we have met, one thing is common and that is the majority know when they are slipping and need a “pick me up”. Not all shoes will fit you and for some it might mean going shopping, others an extra session at the gym but for most we asked it was a visit to the hair salon that was the first line of defence!
So if you need a little extra happiness in your life why not come visit us!
You may think you have hidden your recent purchases from your partner but we know you have an obsession for the ongoing hunt for the best fix for your hair! If you keep swapping and changing things, could be a shampoo or even a diet the chances of getting any positive results are fairly low!
There is no set formula or set of products that suit everyone and it’s important to understand just by using an “extra body” shampoo or a “smooth & shine” if your hair isn’t cut to enhance, volume or sleek it possibly will be useless trying to fix it with a shampoo!
What you need is a good shampoo that will help your scalp be clean without stripping it and making it dry, a shampoo that will cleanse scalp and hair but not strip moisture & color.
Depending on your shampoo pattern and your hair and scalp but a sulfate free shampoo additionally a deep cleansing shampoo ( tucked away in the cupboard for every 2nd or 3rd shampoo day) plus a conditioner suitable for your hair type. For those with longer hair, keep a wide tooth comb in the shower to get the knots out while the conditioner is in.
Finish with a leave in serum and if needed, a leave in conditioner depending on your hair type and texture.
If you need more help drop in and see us, don’t keep filling up your cupboards endlessly.
For some people think you can literally just pay extra to fix hair that’s ruined, abuse it for months/years then simply pay a little extra or get the new treatment and you have brand new healthy hair but guess what…. you can’t!
Here are a few things you need to do to make sure your hair doesn’t need shaving off and starting again! Some you will think you can skip because, well that’s human nature and you think you can do what you want but if you want healthy hair here goes!
Trim every 5-6 weeks! Yes you do and no even if you are trying to grow it then ends need to be removed.
Don’t over dry it or end up burning it with heat tools, a blow out shouldn’t destroy your hair if done correctly but sadly a lot of the time it does!
Always use conditioner, closes the cuticle making sure the moisture stays in.
Use a heat protector or serum everyday!
Wash it every day or every second day.
Don’t use oil, yes DON’T -it coats the hair, the heat that’s generated from the coating dehydrates the hair and makes it dry and brittle.
No amount of onion juice, curd, beer or oil rubbed onto your scalp is going to do anything other than create bacteria. Anyone who spends time in a salon getting a blow out may or may not know the smoke coming off the client next door is either her hair burning or bacteria & build up burning off the hairshaft! Just because your mum told you and her mum told her and her mums mum told her doesn’t make it correct. There is no quick fix, tablets and vitamins may ( not always ) help supplement vitamins and minerals the body is lacking but take months or even years to see any effect if any!
Now stop doing your home remedies and avoiding getting cut and start looking after your hair!
Drop in and see us if your hair has issues or your experiencing a problem! You may need nothing but an option either way we love meeting new people
The reality is by this time in the day you are hungry and this looks nothing short of delicious 😋
There has and always will be some trend foods that claims to make your hair grow faster, thicker and healthier and this one is nothing short of a miracle!
The reality is very different and whilst you have another tab open on hacks to increase your Instagram following, just like that tab too it’s all kind of crap!
Your intake is part of what determines hair growth but it’s also genetic, so I guess a cream, lotion or magic berry from the amazon isn’t going to do that much.
There are 5 basic food groups ( google it ) eat from all the required groups daily and you will set your body up for success. Could be training for a marathon or simply wanting to be healthy, it’s the fuel your body needs to function at its best.
Supplements are ok to some extent but understand if something like “folate” helps hair grow, eating folate rich foods and then taking folate tablets isn’t going to double up your growth. Basic common sense, add some of that to your diet and eat healthy, not for a week and expect results it’s more like a lifestyle than a fad.
No food can stop hair fall, it’s like trying to stop your nails growing, you can’t.
Have you ever asked yourself why your hair is a certain way? Why do you keep going back to the same style day after day, visit after visit to the hair salon? It could be because it works, it’s easy, it’s suits you or it could be just because you are used to doing your hair a certain way.
If you have ever changed it and we don’t mean dramatic ( often even a styling change can make s huge difference ) you will know you get a boost of energy and a new zest for life!
Here are some fresh bob’s and styled differently for your busy life!
Why not get a boost of energy and a fresh look while your at it!
We see a lot of people with chemical damage wanting to do all sorts of things in the hope they get beautiful healthy looking hair, in a lot of cases the hair is far too damaged to do anything.
Could be over styled with heat damage from weekly blowouts done wrong or having too much color when it shouldn’t have been done! The thought of global color is in fact odd, should rarely be done yet a lot of people keep doing it thinking they need it when they don’t.
Healthy hair is about colouring it the right way, taking care of it daily and regular trims regardless of the desired length. This hair has just had balayage color and was finished with a gloss treatment, then blow dried with only hands! Finished with Cristali Liquid by Alfa Parf and that’s it!

Too often we all judge, by the photos you post, the amount of likes you get, your following numbers, the places you go, the clothes you wear, the length of your skirt, the amount of skin you show, where you live, what your last name is, how much you earn, how much money you have, what car you drive, where you go to gym, who you sleeping with, who cuts your hair, the haircut you have, the skin care you use and the list goes on and on!
The stupid part is it has absolutely nothing to do with the person you are on the inside, everyone has a preference for their life and the key word is “their” it’s not yours.
Stop and remember that none of the outside matters it’s what’s on the inside that counts! Saying that you can always help the outside by giving your hair a fresh look!
