Take Care Of Your Hair With Tips and Advice From Simone Thomas Hair Salon in Westbourne
At this time of year it’s traditional to focus on love! At our Westbourne hairdressing salon we’re not about to start offering you advice on your relationships, but we can give you advice on how best to care for your hair.
It makes sense to invest in your hair, not just for a Valentine’s, or Galentine’s date night, but all year through. You will reap the benefits not just in the way your hair looks, but also in the way it makes you feel. And who doesn’t want to feel more confident, beautiful, & relaxed?!
So let’s go ahead and give our hair a little extra love! Here are our top tips for caring for your hair.
Looking for the best hairdressers in Bournemouth?
1 Book a Hair Treatment
The right treatment can transform your hair. It can breathe new life into the dullest of locks, repairing damage and protecting from future wear and tear.
At our Bournemouth salon we were one of the first in the UK to offer Olaplex treatments. Olaplex is internationally renowned for its ability to transform even the most damaged hair. We automatically add Olaplex to all our hair colour services, but speak to your stylist about the products in the range. We also offer Olaplex home treatments.
We’re also proud to offer the Davines Circle Chronicles range of vegan hair treatments. Whatever your hair concerns, there is a specific treatment available to work wonders. From the Spotlight Circle which adds shine to dull hair to the Wake Up Circle to add volume, speak to your stylist who can advise you on the best treatment for your needs.
2 Use A Heat Protection Product
We all love to style our hair, but using hot tools is one of the leading causes of hair damage. Heat can leave unprotected hair parched and frizzy so do your locks a favour and invest in a heat protecting spray.
We recommend MELU Hair Shield from Davines, available in salon or via our online shop. Simply spray it onto your damp hair directly before you blow-dry, straighten or curl your hair with heated tools. MELU is a lightweight formula, so if you have curly hair it won’t drag down your curls or make them feel limp.
3 Book Regular Hair Appointments
Split ends and broken strands of hair can’t be repaired, and in fact, they will just continue to split up the hair shaft. The longer you leave your hair, the more damaged it can become, so the only solution is to book regular trims to cut away the split ends. This applies even if you are trying to grow your hair.
When it comes to maintaining your hair colour, we recommend booking a freshen up appointment every 4 – 8 weeks, depending on your style and how quickly your hair grows. The longer you leave it, the more work will be required to restore your desired look!
4 Use Salon Quality Hair Products With No Nasty Ingredients
Supermarket brands may look like a bargain but they may be full of unwanted ingredients and in the long term they will do your hair more harm than good. In particular, products which contain a lot of silicones to make your hair look superficially shiny can be very problematic. They result in a waxy build up on the hair and can lead to dandruff, hair breakage and other concerns.
We recommend instead using Davines vegan hair care products. They will provide beautiful, outstanding results whilst still being produced both ethically and sustainably. The products combine the best properties of nature with innovative technology, developed in Davines Laboratories. All the products look and smell gorgeous, so whatever your hair type and concerns, speak to your Simone Thomas stylist who will recommend the right one for you.
5 Be Gentle With Your Hair & Don’t Wash It Too Often
Washing your hair every day can dry it out by stripping it of it’s natural oils. On the other hand, it can sometimes lead to lank greasy hair as your hair attempts to counter the dryness caused by over washing! Of course it can also strip or fade your hair colour too.
We recommend washing your hair every 2-5 days, using dry shampoo in between if necessary. When you do wash your hair, be gentle! Don’t scrub it or tug at it when detangling, which can cause breakage and frizz.
