Hair colour is very much a part of your identity. It shouldn’t
be underestimated how important this is – having a hair colour that suits you
and that makes you feel more confident is definitely something that everybody
wants, and deserves to have. You can work with your hairdresser to find the right
colour for you and make sure it’s one that will make you feel your best.
If you have ideas that you’d like to explore with your hair
colour, take in photos to show your hairdresser. If it is possible with your
hair colour and type, they will be able to tell you how long it might take to
achieve it. Always listen to the opinion of your hairdresser. They’re a trained
stylist and they will know exactly what they’re doing. It’s simply not possible
for you to achieve a healthy hair colour that you can be proud of without their
Is the concept of a hair-friendly colour change completely out of the question? It’s not out of the question, but it might take some consideration if you want to do it properly. For example, you won’t be able to go from dark brunette to blonde in just one sitting and keep your hair healthy. Here are some things you can do to achieve a healthy colour change:
- Do it gradually. You don’t need to achieve your dream colour in one appointment. You can get there gradually, which will be much kinder on your hair. This is especially true if you are going from dark to light.
- Take the advice of your hairdresser. Follow the advice they give you and work towards your new colour in the way that your professional stylist recommends.
- Use colour-friendly products. Make sure you invest in good hair care products to keep your hair healthy during and after the colour change process.
Winter can be a tough time on your hair, in terms of making sure it looks good and in terms of keeping it in good condition. The rain, damp and cold air will make it particularly difficult to keep your hair looking sleek and smooth, and the harshness of the weather can give you very damaged hair and split ends. It’s possible to keep your hair in good condition through the winter, but it will just take some work and some consideration on your part.
Make sure you are using a shampoo that is good for your hair, so check it works in the way you want it to. If you have particularly dry of frizzy hair, this is only going to be made worse in winter, so choose a shampoo that will help you out here.
You should also work to make your hair less prone to breakage and damage. Use a rich and nourishing hair mask around once a month until the cold passes.
New Year is a time for change, so why not change something about your appearance as well. It will help you to begin the New Year feeling stylish, and confident in your new look. If you have been thinking about changing your hairstyle, then now is as good a time as ever to do it. Take the leap for 2019.
If you are going to have a new hairstyle, it is something you should discuss in depth with your stylist first. Whilst it is tempting to make a change for the new year, it also isn’t something you should do on a whim, or you could regret it. Sit down and discuss your options with your regular stylist to see what they recommend. If you already have some ideas, show them the kinds of things you like to see if they think they will work with your hair type and your skin tone.
Are you looking to try out a homemade facial scrub? We recommend making an oatmeal scrub. Nice and simple, plus great for your skin.
All you need to make the scrub, is a tablespoon of oatmeal, three tablespoons of warm water and then wait 10 minutes until the oats are soft.
Before you apply, make sure your face is clean. Then massage your face with the oatmeal mixture for 2 minutes (avoiding the eyes). This will help to exfoliate your skin. After the 2 minutes are up, rinse off with warm water and then cold water straight after. This is recommended, as the cold water will help to close the pores which were open previously.
