I get asked often by my clients when they visit the salon, how can i prevent my hair from breakage and damage in between salon visits?
I've found that hair damage is a constant challenge for many women and can be caused by influences in our everyday lives .
Daily styling such as blowdrying and heat tools or chemical services can weaken the integrity of your hair. if you have long hair this then becomes more prone to experience damage, which means that the longer your hair is the older it is and the less resilient it becomes to all the influences.
You may or may not notice some signs of damage but the main things to look for are:
If your hair has any of these signs of damage, you may benefit from Wella's New Fusion Hair Recovery system.
FOR UP TO 95% MORE RESILIENCE AGAINST BREAKAGE
Fusion will recover the inner hair resilience and help to repair the outer layer of hair. Even highly damaged hair feels renewed, smooth, elastic and resilient against breakage.
In the salon I will be doing the fusion intense repair service, this effective care service will refill the hairs weaker areas with amino acids. It's a 10 to 15 minute service and I've tried it on myself and the results are really amazing. Pictures to follow shortly!
I always advise that you prolong the effect at home with the fusion care regimen. Fusion intense repair shampoo, conditioner and mask. This will help to lock the treatment in for longer and help to protect the hair from everyday damage.
To launch this fantastic product that has took Wella years of scientific research we are offering a FREE travel repair kit with every treatment so you can see the effects for yourself at home for absolutely free!! So you can see if you really like it before you commit to buying the full size kits yourself!

Still struggle to blow-dry your hair at home?
You need one brush and one brush only and guess what it isn't a round one!
Still haven't mastered the art of Blow-drying your hair at home? Don't worry you wont be the only one.
Want to know a foolproof tip get the perfect blowdry at home? Our best tip is to always use a brush as you dry your hair! Sounds obvious, right? But we're not just talking about the tricky to master round brushes here, even if you cant manage to master the round brush technique, then a paddle brush will suffice.
By continuously brushing your lengths as you blow dry, you are brushing the hair to where you want it to sit while smoothing down your hairs cuticle. By doing this you will be left with a smooth, soft, frizz free blow-dry that will still have a touch of bounce without giving you an over the top, overdone finish. Always make sure you rough dry your hair up to 70% dry on a medium heat before going in with your paddle brush this will still give the same effect but will just cut down your overall time spent drying your hair. Smooth over with straighteners if you need to... Ta Dah... this can all be done in around 20 mins.
When styling your hair it is all about the preparation so always start with a really good blow-dry before you straighten or curl your hair as you will always get the perfect finish this way.
I bet most of you will always vow to never rough dry your hair again after you have tried this great technique!
Here's to great hair days!
Three of my favourite paddle brushes
You have probably more than likely come across this struggle yourself, where you have just had you colour freshly done and it starts to lose its vibrancy and longevity after a couple of weeks. But have you ever thought that your straighteners could be one of the biggest culprits for your lovely fresh colour fading so quickly?
Just take a look at these snap shots that prove it all!
Your colour works by penetrating the hair shaft with tiny molecules that lock into the cortex of your hair and the cuticle is then sealed down to lock in your colour. If you use hair straighteners on a too high heat setting the heat opens up your hairs cuticle leaving room for your colour to escape and literally evaporate into thin air! It's not just straighteners you need to watch out for even your hairdryer can do this so always use a medium heat setting and plenty of heat protection! Simply like having your water too hot in the bath or shower will contribute to your colour fading, just like hot water opens up the pores on your face, hot water works exactly the same way on your hair too!
Now we are not saying you have to ditch the straighteners completely but it could be a good time to say goodbye to your old straighteners that don't have a heat control setting! If this has made your mind up that it's time to make the switch one fantastic pair that I can recommend are the multi award winning cloud9 hair straighteners. The innovative temperature control means you can style from a friendly 100 degrees! Looking after your hair and your colour too! What's not to love?
What do you think? Surprised and time for a straightener upgrade?
Leave your comments below!
We like to switch things up a little, so we thought the website could do with a brand new look!
We are always super creative with your hair so we thought we would get a little creative and design a whole new website to make the whole experience a little bit easier for you to use!
So whats new?
Apart from the whole new look the website still does everything that you could do before such as online booking, but we have had a play around with the layout to make finding the information you need a lot faster and easier. We have also added this blog section so you can keep up to date with everything we have been getting up to in salon and all the latest hair news, tips and trends!
We would love to here what you think?
