DIY hair and YouTube’rs that claim they do hair is fun to watch and in some cases they do some cool hair, possibly even beautiful hair!
But it’s not something that you can learn in 5 minutes or a few tutorials which is highly edited and not relevant to everyone’s hair type. It can be an easy thing to miss judge your medium texture hair with someone else’s and not take into consideration yours is thicker, has been pre lightened and then coloured dark, hasn’t been cut in 6 months and has more damage than iPhone dropped from a roof of a 15 story building. No your hair is not basically the same, no you don’t understand why it is now breaking off in handfuls.
A bad color can literally burn your hair off at the roots! Have a weekend bender, that’s fun but don’t bring out sharp instruments or start colouring your hair because you watched a few videos.
Only trust professional hair salons, this is not a DIY job. Give us a call or drop in and have a free consultation
If you have just given up on trying because it’s just to plain hard, then it’s time to invest some time on finding the right hair salon for you and your hair. It’s like saying nothing fits you’re over it I’m not wearing clothes, you won’t I hope so you have to sort it out.
Obviously you need to find a salon that is capable of doing what it is you are after, not just promises but actually can do it. Let’s be honest tho almost all may just say yes yes but at the end of it you’re left looking more like a oh no than a yes yes.
Drop into any salon and have a talk about your hair, this does not cost money it’s free and you can get a good sense of the people while you are there. Ask as many questions as possible and don’t book anything just take a card. Go home think then decide.
Just because you have had a few bad experiences the right salon is out there don’t give up!
Seems most of the country is having a sale, 50% off or end of season sale yet is that one or two new items in your wardrobe going to give you a fresh new look?
We can already hear you say “yes it will!” But chances are within minutes of your squad seeing it the shine will be gone and back in the wardrobe it will go. The sad reality is when you get something new that you love you can’t wear it daily or it risks looking like it’s the only thing you have!
Now a fresh new cut or color will have a longer WOW factor both externally to your crew as well as give you that “I feel great” feeling 24/7 no matter what you wear at a small portion of the outfit your eyeing off. Therefore it makes better sense to get yourself into the salon than heading to the mall this Monsoon!
Your mum says every 2-3 days is fine, your grandmother would say once a week, you’ve asked several hairdressers and they all say ok ok well here are the facts.
If you stay inside 24/7 in a climate controlled environment, without stepping outside or exercising then your good for 2 days for every normal person on the planet every day and here is why.
We perspire and when we do it dries up on your skin/scalp leaving the dried up sweat 💦 on your scalp or skin is an open invitation to bacteria.
You go outside, fumes pollution all are attracted to your hair ( not because it’s on fleek ) but because it absorbs what’s in the air, this needs removing or will create film on your hair/scalp which again may cause bacterial infections
When the natural oils are excreted from sebum glands it stays on your scalp which is good and bad however to have the healthy PH value on your scalp too much will alter that creating havoc for healthy hair growth.
Washing every day is not only ok, it’s required and in some situations twice is needed if the heat or pollution is excessive. Always use a conditioner or your cuticle will be left open making your hair dehydrated and will cause split ends.
Use a sulfate free shampo, we use and reccomend Alfa Parf products.
No more need for injections or a scalpel to get your hair growth issues in order!
Yes ok you got me, there is no cure! But we will say a few things to clear the air so there is no bad feelings and you didn’t end up opening this as a total waste of time, because we know your doing this at work and time is money!
Ok so you have googled it to the end of the planet and still can’t find a cure, maybe there isn’t one?
Hair growth is for the most part hereditary and portion effected by what you eat, the environment and small portion to what goes on your head. Hair grows inside your body not outside, oils and lotions are topical meaning the best they can do is penetrate the first layer of your skin ( at best ) so in short anything you put on your scalp thinking it’s going to make it grow back or make it grow thicker is in fact false.
What you need!
Sounds basic but you need a good hair care regime, a good cleanser and a routine that does not allow bacteria to grow on your scalp as this is a huge contributor to infection which then leads to increase hair loss. Problem you will tell us is you only want to wash it every third day because you needs to blow dry it bla bla bla. Well decide what you want, hair or good hair this week?
Now your scalp perspires and there is dirt and pollution in the air and it needs to be removed so daily is always the best when it comes to shampooing. Use a sulfate & parabin free shampoo. We use Alfa Parf but if you want to research please do and get one.
Now before you start putting oils or lotions on your scalp which will do nothing but block the pores and attract pollution, coat your hair and dehydrate it more than anything else. Get the basics right.
Some of us hear half the story and already decide the ending, for the person telling the story it’s incredibly frustrating.
When it comes to getting the best hair possible, you have to have the full picture, understand the process and then assess. It’s not the type of thing you can shop on price, it’s a combination of skill, attitude, price & convenience.
Always have an in depth consultation with a prospective hairstylist or even your current one on what it is exactly your after so you love your hair. Explain restrictions be it length, color, time or money. Remember the more information shared the more likely it is you will love it!
Everyone has there one prize possession, for some it’s there indepedance or there free spirit for others it’s there vintage Birkin. Some people take there BFF to the salon and they wait whilst getting there hair done others reserve a few extra chairs ( one for there bag, one for there maid, one for security and one extra for there sunglasses)
Some will read this I’m sure and think WTF do people actually do this, some will read this and say of course either way we proudly don’t do ” plus one for my bag”
Whilst we are loving the look and love your 3 story perfectly curated closet, sadly most establishments don’t allocate extra seating for your fetish.
Tips for how to walk around town and care for your over loved bag.
Be happy to put in on the floor
Have your entourage care for it
Leave it in the car, it’s not the runway, it’s a salon we don’t really care what bag you own or don’t own.
Carry a backpack, maybe the type Dora the explorer carries, its way cooler fits in everything and will turn more heads than your vintage OTT BAG.
