Q: I have heard that you should shampoo your hair twice. Is this true?
A:You heard correctly! The reason we do this is the first shampoo gets rids of all the pollution, dirt and any build-up of hair-care products and the second shampoo activates the specific ingredients that are prescribed for your hair.
Q: Do I apply conditioner to my roots?
A:No. Your roots have enough oil to produce a conditioning effect. You should only apply conditioner to the mid lengths of your hair to the ends. Think from ear level down.
Q: How often should I get my hair cut?
A:It does depend on how your hair grows. Someone with short hair may need to come in every 4 or 5 weeks as they find the style of their hair can lose shape. Other clients may come every 6-8 weeks.
Q: I’m trying to grow my hair. Do I still need to get it trimmed?
A:Absolutely! The longer you leave in between cuts, means that the split ends will travel up the hair shaft and in the end you’ll have to get more cut off. Just ask the stylist to cut the bare minimum off as you are trying to grow it.
Q: I have curly hair. What is the best way to dry it?
A:Apply some curl defining product in your hair, using your fingers to twist around the curl and let it dry naturally. This will give you the best result.
Q: Does GHD stand for anything?
A:GHD stands for Good Hair Day because that’s what you’ll have when you use it.
Q: Is it really necessary to have a hair treatment after my colour?
A:We are strong believers in having a treatment after colour. The concentrated dose goes directly into the cortex of the hair and provides nourishment, strength and shine. Once you start having them, you will find that it’s hard not to.
Q: Is it ok to sleep in a hair masque?
A:Hair masques stop working after 20 minutes so there wouldn’t be any reason to sleep with it in.
