Hair can dry out in extreme temperatures and with increased UV exposure in summer months or while your on holiday. Your hair is dead from the root out, so, we can only increase our hair health by what we directly put on it. Diet can help hair as it grows, to give you hair overall better condition so you have a better starting point, but once it's left the follicle its on its own!
Sadly, the huge cosmetic marketing machine would have you believe there are lots of things that can help you in your local supermarket, if only! The only way to repair and hydrate your hair is by using specific products, specifically for your hair type and condition. Choosing the right product can be tricky and costly if you choose wrong, so we always advise you speak to our stylists who has loads and loads of training to help you make an informed decision.
Penetrate don't cover!
The biggest problem with many supermarket or none professional hair care is that the molecules are too big. They need to be small enough to go deep into the hair and repair it from the inside out. Many natural fixes also sit on the surface and make the hair appear to be healthier but i has just coated and covered up the dryness and damage. Once you re-wash your hair, the ugly truth will show back through, worse still, the plastic coatings can react with hair colours and stop professional products from working!
The Good News Is...
Professional Hair Care is very concentrated, so you won't have to buy it very often and means long term you will actually save money!
