Musing and happenings from our salons with tips and tricks thrown in!
We get it, good hair days can seem few and far between. The happiness of having picture-perfect hair every day, actually comes from a few healthy habits and we’re here to share our top tips.
Shampoo and conditioner
Invest in a good quality shampoo and conditioner but use them sparingly. Good quality products contain fewer chemicals, so they are better for your hair. Most people don’t actually need to wash their hair as often as they do, so if you can skip a few days, do so.
There’s a reason why us hair stylists do this, not only does it feel great, but it stimulates hair growth. If you haven’t tried it at home, grab some hair oils and give your scalp the time it deserves, which brings us nicely on to our next point…
Hot oil treatments
Hot oil treatments help to add moisture into your locks. They help strengthen and nourish your hair while preventing split ends. You should use one weekly and really massage it into your locks, leaving it to work for five minutes.
We know this may seem like a lot of hassle but it’s totally worth doing. Similar to above, a deep conditioning treatment will help repair and strengthen your hair. If you colour your hair, this will work wonders. You can pop into the salon for a deep conditioning treatment or pick up a product to use weekly at home.
Keeping your hair happy is just as much about what you eat, as much as it is about how you treat it. Eat a balanced diet with lots of fruit, veg and protein. A general rule, the darker and leafier the green, the better! Iron and protein are key here.
Trim, trim, trim
Hit the salon regularly to get your hair trimmed. This will help keep your hair healthy, keep split ends at bay and will help with growth. We recommend booking in a trim every six to eight weeks.
Be careful with chemicals
Fear not, you can still colour your hair and keep it healthy. We would just advise always going to the salon to change your hair colour and never using box bleach or dyes. You can also use a salon conditioning treatment such as Olaplex that will help protect your hair during the colouring process. Read more about this in our blog here.
Styling your hair can be so much fun and we recommend it to make you feel fabulous. However, just know that heat styling does cause damage. Take precautions and invest in a decent heat defence product and avoid unnecessary styling where possible. If you don’t fancy letting your hair dry naturally, try turning down the heat and drying your hair on a cooler setting.
If you want some more advice or fancy getting your hands on some of the products mentioned, get in touch.
