Frequently Asked Questions

Since having my second baby my hair seems to be in a very poor condition - split ends and generally in a mess!! What should I do?

Once a week use a deep conditioning treatment on your hair to replenish vital moisture. Cover hair with conditioner, wrap in a towel, sit back and relax for 10 minutes to allow conditioner to penetrate into the hair shaft. After washing your hair, blot it with a towel, don't rub or wring your hair when it is wet because this is when it is at its weakest and most likely to break. Wrap the towel around your hair and leave for a few minutes to absorb the excess water.When washing your hair ensure your final rinse is in ice cold water. This closes and flattens cuticles for maximum shine. Always use a styling product before drying your hair to protect the hair when using a hair dryer. Have your hair cut every six weeks to remove damaged and split ends. Trimmed hair always looks healthier and thicker.
