GONGS 2012 finalists, Chocolate Blonde Hair Couture prepare our hair of the spring/summer season ahead…
It’s that time of the year where the Christmas and new year’s party season seems all but a distant memory. For many of us, detoxes and New Year resolutions have been and gone and we’re planning our diaries for the year to come.
Over the Christmas period, hair can become dull and tired, with lots of backcombing and hairspray, long nights in messy buns and the ‘day after’ ponytails. Not to mention the cold NI weather that wreaks havoc with our skin and hair, sapping out essential moisture.
Looking forward to the festivals, weddings and barbecues, this is the perfect time of the year to revitalise and invigorate your locks. Following some of our top tips to healthy hair, you’re sure to have summer ready hair that turns heads.
Starting with a visit to your stylist will give you the perfect head start, whether it’s a good tidy up or a complete new look, you’re sure to come away with hair that looks and feels fresh and new. Removing dry and split ends gives your hair a new lease of life and a platform of hair remedy.
When having your hair coloured, you should have your mid-lengths and ends refreshed with a colour treatment that conditions and looks after your hair. In the salon, we use colour with your hair in mind, it contains no ammonia and in turn leaves your hair soft, smooth and shiny.
We think it’s essential to have regular treatments, and our clients just love them! We use the Joico K-pak range to revitalise hair that’s in desperate need of rescue. Joico K-pak is the ultimate in hair repair, it restores your hair to a perfect condition with a rich and luxurious formula that rebuilds, revives and protects. K-pak products will radically transform the look and feel of damaged hair.
One of our favourite treatments and an absolute must have for 2013 is ‘Lisse Design’! An innovative keratin based service that leave hair smooth, velvety, glossy and tangle free. Amazing and long lasting results, hair that is frizz free and easy to manage. Take all the work out of managing your hair with a treatment that is paraben, salt and sulphate free.
When investing in fabulous hair, it’s vital to look after your tresses at home. Homecare kits are a fantastic investment. Speak to your stylist, ask their advice, and get some products that will give your hair the very best care.
Another top tip to keeping hair smooth, sleek and shiny, is making sure you look after your electrical equipment. Always use a heat protecting spray before blow-drying your hair. Use a lower heat setting on straighteners and always maintain electrical styling products so that they are at optimum performance and taking care of your hair.
