True Keratin - the hair MIRACLE!

I told you last week that I was buzzing with excitement for the new treatment that I was going to be offering since having it done myself - True Keratin - so here it is..........

True Keratin has been described by many as a miracle product, so I was more than eager to try it out for myself. I can't sell anything that I haven't tried first, so I decided to give it a go and all I can say is WOW! After one treatment I now have super easy, frizz free, glossy hair which has made my life 100 times easier and i'm NOT exaggerating.

True Keratin is ideal for; damaged, unmanageable, frizzy, fragile, brittle hair and provides intense hydration and protects against heat damage, which in return repels humidity and keeps split ends at bay.

The results are astounding - my hair is straighter, smoother and shinier but the best bit of all is that it's reduced my styling time by 90%. If you know me then you'll know my hair is VERY long and VERY thick, so this has literally changed my life.

I don't like to put anything negative in my blogs but as you can imagine, miracles don't come cheap and it's not a quick treatment. The service can take anywhere between 1.5 and 4.5 hours, depending on the length of your hair, the thickness and the condition - it also means that price can vary. Salons charge anywhere between £200 & £250!! You also HAVE to use a special shampoo and conditioner, which will prolong the keratin in your hair and the RRP for this is £17.99/£19.99. I have to say that using it will make a massive difference to the length of time the treatment holds in your hair and if you're going to be spending the £££ then you want to make sure it lasts for as long as possible. The length of time it lasts for also varies on your hair type but can be anything from 2-5 months.

Since i've had such a good experience with True Keratin, I am going to offer this treatment on a promotional price for a limited time. The first 5 people to book with me will get the treatment plus the Shampoo & Conditioner (which you keep for home use) for the bargain of £150!!!!!!! After that the price will be from £180 (again, pricing depends on the length and condition of your hair, you will need a consultation).

With the festive period just around the corner it might make a nice pressie, so perhaps you could add this to your Christmas list!

If you seriously have issues with your hair being frizzy and unmanageable or you want to stop using the straightners and don't mind splashing out, then I HIGHLY recommend using True Keratin, I will DEFINITELY be doing it again.

As always, if you're not sure about it or want some more information then please feel free to call/email me or have a chat with me at your next appointment.

Have a fantastic weekend :)

Summer Hair!

So, it's the 1st June - which means we are officially into SUMMER ***insert excitement here***!!

As a nation, we Brits live for the summer months – Britain really is beautiful when the sun shines. A lot of my clients have already got their summer holidays booked and have started asking me about the best way to make sure their hair stays in tip-top condition when faced with sun, sea and humid weather.

Remember: Sun = damage! You need to put as much moisture as you can back into your hair and this can be done in various methods.

·        Apply a deep conditioning treatment or conditioner to your hair before going out in the sun, comb it through and then tie into a bun. This will protect it from the sea/sun/chlorine and will give it an extra boost of moisture, shine & softness.

·        One of the best ways to help your hair is to eat healthily, which is a lot easier in the summer as everyone is having BBQ’s. Omega 3, fatty acids (such as eggs, spinach and Salmon) all help to keep the hair strong & healthy.

·        Summer is an ideal time to let your hair dry naturally, reducing exposure to heated appliances, which reduces damage.

·        A quick fix, so that you don’t keep washing your hair all the time, is Batiste Dry Shampoo

Batiste is available for all hair types, so there's something for everyone!

·        It can be as simple as wearing a hat – simple and effective!

·        After swimming in the sea or the pool, rinse your hair to get the chlorine and salt out of it.

·        If you swim a lot it’s worth investing in a good shampoo which is designed to remove chlorine. Just make sure you use a good conditioner to put the moisture back in. Boots own "Sun, Swim & Gym" is a good one.

·        I’ve talked before about Argan Miracle 10 – it’s great and smells lovely.

·        GREEN HAIR ALERT – it happens to the best of us but a quick fix is to shampoo and rinse straight after swimming, apply tomato paste or ketchup, neat or mixed with a little shampoo and leave on for 30 mins then rinse thoroughly and condition.

·        Lots of my clients have a different hair colour depending on the season – why not have a colour consultation to find out your options. It could just be a subtle change of a few highlights framing your face to add a special touch for those summer days.

Think about it this way, we moisturise more in the Summer, as the sun dries out our skin, the same goes for your hair – CONDITION! CONDITION! CONDITION!

If you're unsure about anything i've mentioned above or you just want some tips on how to use the products, give me a shout!
