REPAIR YOUR HAIR WITH OLAPLEX AT GATSBY & MILLER HAIRDRESSERS, AMERSHAM

With January finally out of the way and racing through February now, all those new year resolutions are starting to become a thing of the past! Well, all except one.

“Throughout winter I find my hair gets zapped of any moisture or nourishment from central heating and the cold wind” shares Julie, Salon Director.

We often find throughout the winter we tend to blow dry and style our hair more to dry it quickly and keep it frizz free, but this has a detrimental affect of the inside of hair.

“One New Years resolution I have stuck to (well, the only one!) is repairing my hair with Olaplex. Olaplex is not a trend, Its a revolution. Its the best hair treatment you can have in salon and at home to completely transform your hair and repair the damage”.

Real Science. Real Results.

TWO SALON STEPS, ONE TO TAKE HOME

Our simple three-step process includes a patented active ingredient that works on a molecular level to seek out broken bonds in the hair that are caused by chemical, thermal, and mechanical damage. You can use Olaplex to restore compromised hair, or add it to another service to provide the ultimate breakage insurance.

No.1
Bond Multiplier®
BEGINNING THE REBUILDING

This concentrated first salon step rebuilds broken disulfide bonds and begins the process of preventing damage and repairing hair.

No.2
Bond Perfector®
PURSUING HAIR PERFECTION

The second salon step continues to rebuild and restore any remaining broken bonds ensuring the strongest, shiniest, and healthiest hair possible.

No.3
Hair Perfector
LASTING PROTECTION AT HOME

This final retail step provides your hair with continuous protection from ongoing damage at home.

“This one you can start at the comfort of your own home, all you need is Olaplex No.3. In three easy steps you and your mane will be off to a healthy start, and who doesn’t want healthy hair?” Adds Julie.

Step 1: Apply a generous amount to towel-dried hair and comb through.

Step 2: Leave on for a minimum of 10 minutes. Keep in mind, the longer it’s on, the more effective it is, especially for hair that is compromised.

Step 3: Rinse, shampoo and condition. Remember, this is NOT a conditioning treatment OR a leave-in treatment. It is meant to be shampooed out of the hair
and followed up with your regular shampoo/condition regimen.

For more information just call the salon or ask your stylist on your next appointment.

How to shampoo hair correctly

Top tips from G&M’s Hair & Scalp Specialist

This month Hair & Scalp Specialist Jo, shares her top tips on how to shampoo and condition your hair correctly at home.

“It is so important to cleanse and condition your hair and scalp properly using the correct shampoo and conditioner for your hair texture” explains Jo.

“If you need any advise on the correct product for your hair needs then don’t hesitate to pop in and see me.”

1. Wet your hair thoroughly throughout. Don’t forget to move your hair around to get the underneath!

2. Apply a small amount of shampoo to your hands and in stroking movements apply to the scalp whilst lifting the hair to distribute the product all the way through.

3. In small circular motions knead the scalp to create a lather. Work from the hairline downwards towards the nape to ensure nowhere gets missed!

4. Repeat if necessary

5. Apply a small amount of conditioner to your mid-lengths and ends. Using a wide tooth comb detangle the hair. Start at the ends and work your way up. This is the easiest way and won’t cause any damage to your hair!

6. Massage your scalp. This encourages the blood circulation to the hair follicle which will stimulate hair growth. (Yes, we know its not the same doing it on yourself!)

7. Rinse thoroughly.

8. Towel dry your hair off. Try not to rub and ruffle up the hair as this will create tangles. So instead, wrap the towel around your head then gently squeeze and pat the hair dry.

9. Apply a detangling spray to the hair and using your wide tooth comb start to detangle the hair from the ends upwards. I use Tricho Pro by Philip Kingsley, as it makes combing through so easy. It is also protein based so it protects and strengthens the hair!

10. Apply a scalp toner to your scalp. This will create the best environment for a healthy scalp. (remember healthy scalp means healthy hair!)

11. Any additional styling products can now be applied. Leave natural or blow dry on a low/medium heat.

Here’s a few common questions Jo has answered for you. But if you have any further questions or would like advise then simply book in for a Hair & Scalp consultation with Jo.

Why is it important to always use a conditioner?
When shampooing the cuticle is opened. A conditioner is needed to close the cuticle so it stays protecting the hair shaft to keep the hair in good condition.

How often should I shampoo my hair?
I recommend daily, however I know this isn’t always possible so use one more day dry shampoo to maintain the wellbeing of your scalp between washes. A clean scalp encourages your hair to grow at its optimum rate.

I notice my hair in the plug after I wash my hair is this normal?
On average you lose 100 hairs each day, If you start to notice an excessive amount then book in with Jo for one of our specialist consultations that not only covers a personalised hair care regime, but also covers nutrition and lifestyle to help maintain the health or your hair and scalp.
