Hair Tips

Going to a gym to improve your body requires time before achieving results. The same applies to scalp and hair. Follow these tips to receive a healthy scalp, beautiful hair as well as longer lasting vibrant colours.

  • Water PH level is higher than your hair. Just like lips dry out when licked, hair dries out/frizzes more when exposed to water.
  • Stop washing your hair so much! Your scalp produces oil to protect you, the faster you remove those oils = the quicker they will replace themselves.
  • Shampoo twice. First removes build up (use less it’s not supposed to lather this time), second cleans.
  • Condition only mid-shaft to ends. Conditioner coats the hair protecting it, too much weighs hair down and causes build up so remember to rinse well!
  • Never brush your hair when it is wet. Use a wide tooth comb instead. A comb gets stuck and may require a little more effort. Much better than a brush going through quickly, ripping out tons of your hair. Ever wonder why all those fly-aways are everywhere?
  • Brush your hair every morning and night. Start from the bottom of your neck forward (when dry). This helps stimulate your scalp, distribute oils evenly and polish hair shafts. Brushing from your neck forward avoids you from adding “baby hairs” to your hair line.
  • When you get split ends, trim them! We know the meaning of the word “trim” so don’t be afraid, hair will look healthier and get long faster if properly maintained.
