I always tell my clients your hair is the crown you never take off! 
Do you lie in bed and think “ugh its hair wash day?” Well I do anyway. 

So here are some ideas to help you fall back in love with your hair rather than thinking it's a burden and a big ordeal to look after. 

Sometimes during my consultations I talk to my clients about their skin care routine first, and 9 times out of 10 they have a list and routine as long as my arm! The products they use are often expensive and the effort that they put in can be time consuming, and then I ask;

“So what is your hair routine?”
and the answer I usually get is “what ever shampoo is on offer in the supermarket”... 

Your hair & scalp are a continuation of your skin. 

You wouldn’t put a hot surface of 180 degrees or higher on your skin so why do we do it to our hair? 

Heat is one of the biggest causes of damage to our hair, 

  • It dehydrates the hair fibres, therefore making it weak and dull.
  • It can remove vibrant colours and make them look washed out.
  • It causes breakage and may result in parts of your locks missing.

How can you prevent it? (This is a good tip for your teenager too!)

Style Stories Thermal Protect or Semi Di Lino Cristali Liquidi, they are both very affordable products that we stock right here in our salon, along with GHD heat protect. 

These products will not prevent damage but will help protect your hair when used correctly and who knows you might get those extra few inches that you feel will never grow!

Are you having a love/hate relationship with your Wavy/Frizzy Unruly hair? 

Do you want it to be healthy and behave better even on those days with misty rain that you try to avoid or tame in the humidity on holidays? No one needs to be sweating and battling with frizzy hair when you are away in the sun to relax and look fabulous. 

Well we have the perfect products to help you, or even better a 16 week smoothening system! 

Semi Di Lino have a Smoothening Range which consists of 

  1. Smoothen Shampoo
  2. Smoothen Conditioner
  3. Smoothen Mask
  4. Smoothen Cream

The Semi di Lino line is created to control rebellious and difficult to manage hair.

It aligns & Hydrates the hair plus the fibers and counteracts frizz, restoring natural beauty.

The key to this range holds in helping you to love your hair is it’s formula which features:

Shine Fix Complex

24 hours of brightening power from the roots to the ends.

Color Fix Complex

UV filter and antioxidant to prolong the beauty of the colour.

Frizz Defeat Protein

Anti-frizz protection for soft, tamed hair.

Urban Defence Pro

Anti-pollution shield for total protection.

Ok, so if you have tried every product under the sun and you still cannot get it to behave then you should try out the Lisse Design Treatments we also offer this in our salon.

Alfaparf Milano Lisse Design Keratin Therapy is a progressive smoothing keratin treatment. Ideal for those looking for a high performing treatment, that is completely safe and formaldehyde free. Intended for a gentle yet highly effective smoothing service with results lasting up to 3 months. 

I recommend anyone who is interested in this service to avail of the treatment before you get your colour done as it may alter your tones.

Our price for what we call the 16 week blowdry is inclusive of your aftercare Shampoo & Conditioner with a retail price of €37 at time of writing. (Keep an eye out on our Socials for special discounts!) 

The other option for low maintenance hair is the Easy Lisse Treatment.

Volume and frizz are under control for up to eight weeks and every day styling is a breeze. Giving you manageable and soft hair, with long lasting shine.

Also with each application the effect becomes better and longer lasting.

This is one of the most popular options as it’s a faster treatment, but it may not be strong enough to give you the luxury of being who you want to be.

I believe you will really fall in love with your locks with the help of this treatment, so this valentines day ask your someone special for a voucher instead of that box of chocolates they grab on the way home!
