We’ve all watched those hair ads while growing up, the ones with the beautiful woman with long, flowing, shiny, luscious locks that just drop down her back like a waterfall and wafts of flowers and unicorn breath. Who didn’t envy it? Who wouldn’t want people doing a double take at the scent and softness of a great head of hair? Our hair is the one thing that can make or break our day. Nothing feels as good as a great professional blow-dry. Light and airy, with movement we never seem to get on our own. Why may we ask? Simple. It all comes down to products. So let’s talk treatments and prepare to star in your own hair ad…
Kerastase Nutritive Masque Nutri-Thermique
An all time favourite amongst every salon owner and hairstylist alike. This extremely concentrated and creamy mask from Kerastase has been around for a long time, and is smoothing and hydrating for sensitised hair. Coat the hair after shampooing and wrap in a hot towel for 10 minutes, rinse out with warm water for at least 2 minutes and dry as required. If it’s heavy duty moisture quenching you need, this is your poison.
Redken Diamond Oil
Oils have really swept the market in recent years with everything from food, skin and hair products getting in on the magical powers. Redken Diamond Oil is an enriching treatment for dull and damaged hair, reviving it to its full glory and quenching it with much needed hydration from the nourishing qualities of apricot oil.
Shu Uemura Muroto Volume Pure Lightness Treatment
For those of us that need a masque but are afraid of the heaviness and being left with hair that is stuck to our heads, let me introduce you to this beauty. It still holds the power to strengthen and repair any damage done by the environment, colour processing and styling but with the lightness of air. This is your new weapon. It is loaded with antioxidants and botanicals to give all the nourishment your hair needs… This is food for the scalp! Use once a week for 10 minutes for maximum benefit.
Sebastian Penetraitt Masque
A potent, protein rich hair masque packed with polymeric additives to revive shine from dull lifeless hair. Protein is added to hair products to strengthen weakened ends from colour damage so if it’s beautiful shine and softness you are looking for then look no further. Plus, the smell lingers on your hair for the whole day too. Comb through hair for 2-5 minutes and rinse in lukewarm water.
Nioxin Intensive Treatment Deep Repair Hair Masque
Hair thins and falls out at different stages of our lives for many reasons from stress to low iron levels, pregnancy to menopause, and let’s not forget just bad diet. Nioxin shampoo and conditioner comes in many ranges to combat an abundance of problems. Let’s not forget that we still have to look after the condition of our scalps in order to get the best results from our hair. This scalp treatment enhances volume, stimulates the scalp and controls the moisture while balancing the ends.
