Healthy Summer Hair

Summer is nearly over but that doesn’t mean people are finished going on holidays! Or that Ireland might just get another few nice days in the month of August (Fingers Crossed). What can be better than warm sunny days, floral dresses and icy cold drinks?

That sounds amazing but summer brings a few challenges to our hair, Summer is hard on our hair! Summer heat can damage our hair, gives us oily scalps, make our hair lighter. But, fear not! I am here to your rescue and will share my amazing and simple summer hair tips! The heat and humitidy here has been hard so I thought now was the right time:

  • No Heat! First way of protecting your hair is avoid styling your hair with heat as much as possible. I know this could be a challenge for some people but there is a lot of heatless hairstyles ideas that can be done. If you find your hair will go frizzy than a serum is what your need.

 

 

  • Condition Condition Condition!! We see it to often, coloured hair that gets ruined and damaged from all the salt water and sun exposure.If you are going to be spending a long day in the sun than I would advise you to apply a conditioner  all over your hair when dry and leave it soak in. When you are home apply a treatment to your hair, a treatment can help revitalize and rehydrate your hair, bringing it back to life.

 

  • Cover it up! If your planning on being out in the sun for a good length of time consider wearing a hat or scarf to protect your hair and scalp. This also helps to keep coloured hair from fading and turning brassy.

       

 

 

  •  Chlorine Damage! If you spend a lot of time in the pool and find your hair goes green (yes that can happen!) than you need a clarifying shampoo to help remove the chlorine build up and stops it from going green. If your hair is dry it is like a sponge and would be 1 of the first to experience this!

  • Drink more water! We will never hear enough of this! This also does wonders to your hair aswell as body & mind. Water also hydrates your hair and scalp – Otherwise hydrate your hair inside out!

 

Let me know if you have used any of these tips or if you have any of your own!

Wishing you a very lovely summer and healthy beautiful hair!

Introducing Nioxin!

Nioxin_(logo)

One of the things I most enjoy about being a hairstylist is always getting to try the new products!

Firstly I will start with a little inside on the brand Nioxin. When founder Eva Graham experienced thinning hair after giving birth to her first child, she began to investigate the idea of treating the scalp with skincare methods to promote hair growth. This is when Nioxin came to origin. To define Nioxin, it is the hair care product specially invented for thinning hair solution. As we do facial on face, similarly our Scalp requires attention & care and Nioxin works on scalp health providing strength and nourishment which results into hair thicker & fuller look.

This brand is:

  • No1. globally selling salon brand for thicker fuller looking hair.
  • Winner of the stylist Choice Award for “Favourite Thinning Hair Care” since 2002Claims_d
  • Most awarded brand for thinning hair in the US
  • More than 25 years of dedicated research
  • More than 70%  of users notice thicker, fuller looking hair in just 30 days.

 

At The Salon@Georges Court Waterford City, we have the full range of Nioxin hair care systems to match and treat your hair issue, giving your hair growth the boost it needs. Nioxin is not just for woman it is unisex!

Strong and healthy hair begins below the surface of the scalp. Follicles can easily be clogged with sebum, hardened collagen and layers of dead skin cells. If follicles are clogged, strands cannot grow from them. The more follicles that are blocked, the fewer strands of hair that will grow. This is what makes the scalp noticeable and gives the impression of balding. Hair that does manage to grow will be weak which means hair will break easily, and they will thin out.

At the salon we offer a consultation using a Nioscope, a specialised magnifier to study the scalp, we take a very close up look at the scalp, magnified to 200%. We can show clients before and after images of their scalp so that you can see for yourself how the salon treatments are producing results. Unlike any old microscope, a Nioscope projects the view onto a monitor so clients can see their own scalp on a screen. A dermabrasion treatment is then carried out.

Dermabrasion treatment is a facial for the scalp. This is an in salon treatment and what it does is it removes dead skin cells & product build up, increases circulation and excess sebum to renew scalp skin to provide the perfect foundation for Thicker, fuller looking hair.This would be the first step and recommended to get done every 4-6 weeks than you are set to start the subscribed 3 part system which is an at home process.

Derma-Renew-Therapy_d

Nioxin system has 6 different treatment based on the type of hair of an individual. Everyone have different kind of hair ranging from thin ,length, natural, highly dense, coloured ,straight ,curly ..oh this list could go on & on without an end. So that is why Nioxin came up with six parts based on type of hair . You will be provided with best suited category of Nioxin product ranging from 1 to 6 to suit your hair, but whatever you do, DO NOT pick your own number out as using the wrong number will be no benefit. You will need to wash your hair every day to see a quicker result.

In your 3 part system there is:

  • Cleanser – This is your shampoo it removes follicle clogging sebum and environmental residues from the scalp skin and hair.
  • Optimise – This is your conditioner it is very lightweight and helps provides moisture, balance and helps the hair by reducing hair loss due to breakage. With this conditoner you massage into the scalp.
  • Treat – This is your scalp treatment it increases the diameter of each hair strand. Helps provide a refreshed scalp.Some users report redness of the scalp, which generally disappears after a week or two of continued use.  If the redness persists, try using either less frequently and/or in smaller doses.

There is another product called Diaboost which  is a leave in treatment used to increase the thickness of each exisiting hair strand for a fuller looking head of hair. This penetrates the hair and makes it manageable, full aswell as strengthening the hair at home. This allows it to grow longer and its as if you had up to 11,000 more hair strands. You apply this on clean damp hair directly on the root are to cover the scalp and massage in. Comb through hair and than blowdry and usual.
