If the onset of winter weather has left your hair looking dull and frizzy, it’s time to restore that shine! Our stylists have spilled their top tips for keeping your hair looking sleek and shiny until summer returns:
Dedicated Mask Time. We know that it can be hard to find the time to regularly mask your hair for 10-30 minutes. But deep conditioning is a sure-fire way to boost the condition and health of your hair, and build up strength and shine over time. Try to incorporate masking into your routine on your day off – apply a face mask at the same time for extra beauty points. If finding the time seems impossible, try working a deep conditioner into your hair before you go to bed if you’re planning to wash your hair in the morning anyway.
Olaplex. It’s no secret that we’re huge fans of Olaplex, a three-step system that helps to rebuild your hair during colour services. Even if you’re not a blonde, ask your hairdresser about trying out an Olaplex treatment the next time you’re in the salon. We promise that your hair will be left looking incredibly healthy and shiny. The take home No 3 treatment will help to maintain the results in between visits.
Invest in Silk. If you love a bit of luxury, consider investing in some quality silk pillowcases. Fabrics like cotton and polyester can cause friction while you’re sleeping, leaving you with frizz when you wake up. Silk is soft and gentle, and can help to maintain the condition of your hair for ultimate shine.
Avoid Chemicals. We’re so conscious of what we put into our bodies; but have you thought about how the products you’re using affect you on the outside? Shampoos, conditioners and styling products often contain sulfates and other chemicals which can strip away the natural lustre of your hair, and build up over time to cause dullness. We love Kevin.Murphy products for that reason; they’re paraben and sulfate free and chock full of goodness like antioxidants and natural extracts to help keep your hair in top shape.
