Hair, just like skin, can be dried out by cold winter winds and central heating. Mix that with too much heat styling, product build-up, and general bad treatment and the outcome is one bad hair day too many.
But fear not, this is the perfect time to focus on clarifying shampoos, strengthening-treatment conditioners and always remember that we wear our hair everyday.
Newcastle born, Top hairstylist Melissa Hay gives you some simple steps to detox and maintain healthy hair. Being an international hairstylist to DJ’s and having worked in the industry for over seventeen years – she knows her onions.
1. Book into a salon
Have a treatment and cut. Keeping your hair cut regularly, believe it or not, will help your hair to grow. People are under the illusion that if they are growing their hair to never have a trim, however everyday wear and tare will causes the very ends of your hair to break from the bottom up, so keep a regular trim.
2. Invest in a good shampoo and conditioner
Here are a few of the industry’s favourites:
Mid range: Kerastase Nutritive range
In my honest option; if you can, purchase a recommended product from a salon, it will be much better value for money in the long term, trust me. It’s so easy to end up with a draw full of products we never use.
3. Stop straightening your hair!
Try to limit the amount of heat styling. Just keep that for the weekend only. When you do, use a reconstructing product:
Try CIMENT THERMIQUE (here £13.60) thermo-activated reconstructing milk for weakened hair (leave-in) – it’s my personal favourite. I love it. Use on wet hair, it will treat and repair your hair whenever you apply heat. Perfect.
