IT’S an all-too familiar feeling to enter the new year feeling frazzled. All that eating, drinking, partying and stress plays havoc with not only our nails and skin, but also with our hair.
It is a common misconception that the worst damage to hair is done by the summer sun. In fact, the most taxing time for hair is winter, when we are exposing ourselves to the dry cold outside and the searing heat of styling appliances indoors. Damaged hair is dehydrated hair — it can be brittle and dry, and impossible to style. Sound familiar? Then what better time than now to give your locks a bit of a boost with a reconstructive treatment?
Using heated styling appliances causes damage, but did you know that you can considerably lessen that damage by investing in straighteners or curling tongs with adjustable heat? Trimming split ends may be a quick-fix solution, but what heat-damaged hair really needs is a reconstructive treatment, and there is a range of recuperative hair treatments on offer at La Medusa.
The most popular hair detox products are Moroccanoil, which revives jaded locks and enhances shine, as well as the nourishing and deep-conditioning System Professional treatment.
All products are available as treatments in the salon or to purchase for home use. Their stylists will be more than happy to consult with clients on the best treatment for their hair, and that all-important after-care regime.
Top tips for preventing damage:
• Put the straighteners down. Don’t apply heat to already-damaged hair.
• Treat your hair to a reconstructive or deep-conditioning treatment.
• Invest in straighteners and curling tongs with an adjustable temperature.
• Speak to your hairdresser about the best everyday shampoo and conditioner for your hair.
