The new year is a great time challenge old habits and start fresh. Make a good hair day last all year long with our new you – new year hair tips.
A CLEAN START
The reason your hair looks so great after a trip to the salon is that your stylist knows beautiful hair starts with the way its washed. Aim for around three times a week at most, and turn down the heat. A hot shower might wash away the stresses but luke-warm water is so much kinder to your tresses. And be sure to choose a shampoo that’s right for your hair type.
For dry hair consider a hydrating, nourishing shampoo like Kérastase Nutritive Bain Satin. The creamy, rich-textured, pearlescent gel creates a velvety lather and leaves a brilliant finish.
If you have fine hair consider a hair-thickening shampoo. Kérastase Densifique Densité awakens dormant follicles to create hair that has more texture, bounce and body.
For blonde hair, choose a purple shampoo to prevent unwanted brassy tones. Redken Color Extend Blondage is formulated with ultra violet pigment and proteins to tone, brighten and strengthen blonde hair.
While shampooing, use gentle pressure to massage the scalp and roots and don’t rush yourself. One to two minutes not only removes build-up it also increases blood flow to the scalp.
GET YOUR HAIR INTO CONDITION
Using the correct conditioner can do wonders for improving the softness and smoothness of each strand. A salon-quality conditioner can totally transform the way your hair looks and feels.
For dry hair choose a deeply nourishing conditioner. Kérastase Nutritive Magistral Fondant gives hair a smooth and luxurious feel, creating a more supple texture and more radiant shine.
For fine hair reach for Kérastase Densifique Fondant Densité. It creates texture and gives hair substance and resilience making it look and feel fuller.
Blonde hair stays brighter when you use a purple conditioner. Redken Color Extend Blondage Conditioner maintains the brilliance and health of blonde tresses. Use it as part of a complete system in conjunction with Color Extend Blondage Shampoo.
If you have coloured hair you’ll know it needs extra care. Smartbond by L’Oréal Professionnel strengthens each fibre. Use it once a week for stronger, shinier, healthier hair.
A Conditioner is like moisturizer for your hair, so it needs a little bit of time to work its magic. Aim to leave your conditioner in for two to five minutes. Then rinse thoroughly.
BEAT THE HEAT
Hair can be damaged by hot summer sun and harsh UV rays. It’s important to give your locks as much protection as possible. Take extra care too with your heat styling tools.
To maintain sleek, shiny, healthy strands, choose a styler that works at the optimum temperature. The new ghd Platinum+ styler recognises the thickness of your hair and speed at which you are styling and adjusts the heat accordingly, giving unbeatable results, personalised to you. You get 70% stronger hair, 2 times more colour protection and 20% more shine*.
BLOWDRY LIKE A PRO
It’s hard to beat a good salon blow-dry and finish. A great at-home blow-out can be attained if you invest in professional quality tools and haircare.
The ghd hair dryer provides high-pressure air flow coupled with innovative ionic technology. It delivers super-fast drying with reduced frizz and fewer flyaways, maintaining the health and integrity of your hair by decreasing exposure to heat.
