Hair Care Tips
Protecting coloured hair
Dyes and highlights damage hair, making it prone to breakage and colour fade. Washing hair less frequently can help to preserve your colour vibrancy, as hot water opens the hair cuticle and can cause colour fade.
When swimming, apply a leave-in conditioner on damp hair to protect it from chemicals or salt in the water. UV rays can also cause colour to fade, so covering your hair with a hat or scarf when in the sun can also preserve your colour.

Refreshing hair between washes
Dry shampoos are a great way to refresh your hair between washes. They work by removing excess oils produced by the scalp, leaving hair looking revived and healthy. Simply spray dry shampoo at the roots of the hair and brush out. They’re also great for adding volume and texture on those non-wash days.
Hair is at its most fragile when wet, so brushing wet hair with a metal or bristle brush can damage hair. To avoid this, dry hair gently after washing with a towel. Once the moisture has mostly evaporated, use a wide-tooth comb or a vent brush as these are gentler on your hair.
Hair dryers can also damage hair. To protect your hair, avoid using the hottest setting on your hair dryer and ensure your hold 8-10 inches from the hair.
smooth & sleek
Frizz is caused by the hair’s cuticles lifting, making the hair surface rough and unmanageable. Rinsing your hair with cold water after conditioning helps to seal the hairs cuticles, making it harder for moisture to enter the hair fibre and cause hair to frizz. When using a hair dryer, pointing the air flow down the hair shaft can reduce frizz. Avoid over brushing hair and use products that protect the hair from heat appliances and humidity.
Dull, dry hair suffers from a lack of natural oils that help give hair it’s natural sheen. Deep conditioning and regular treatments can help replace lost lipids and hydrate hair, restoring a healthy shine. For longer hair, trimming the ends frequently and conditioning the ends every other day helps prevent dry out.
