Our Guide to Salon-Informed Hair Care

Taking care of your hair is not just about keeping it clean; it’s about maintaining its integrity, enhancing its natural beauty, and ensuring its health in the long run.

As professional salon stylists with over 30 years experience combined, we regularly encounter all sorts of questions from our clients about how to care for hair after you leave the salon chair.

Well, we thought we would compile a number of the most common ones, for you to refer to. Here’s an informative guide with answers to your most pressing hair care concerns:

What Hair Treatments Should I Use and How Often?

At-Home Hair Treatments:
Regular at-home hair treatments are crucial for maintaining hair vitality, especially if you have colour-treated hair. Our golden rule is to use a hair treatment at least once a week to nourish and preserve your hair’s optimum condition.

What’s the Real Difference Between Supermarket and Salon Hair Products?

Understanding the Formulas:
When browsing through hair products, choosing between supermarket and salon-grade items can be bewildering. Here’s the breakdown:

Sulphates in Supermarket Brands:
Most products you pick off the supermarket shelves will contain sulphates, which while effective at cleaning, may also strip your hair of essential moisture. This can leave your hair dry and potentially damaged over time.

Silicones and Their Effects:
You’ll notice many supermarket conditioners have silicones because they provide a temporarily smooth touch. However, these silicones merely coat the hair without treating its underlying needs.

Prescriptive Salon-Quality Products:
Salon professional products come sulphate-free to avoid excess moisture loss. More importantly, they are prescriptive, meaning your stylist selects the perfect match for your hair type. This personalised approach ensures your hair is treated with the specific nourishment it requires.

Keratin Hair Smoothing Treatments: Will It Straighten My Hair?

Understanding Keratin Treatments:
Keratin Therapy Lisse Design offers a suite of smoothing treatments that can loosen curls without full straightening if that’s your preference. The magic of these treatments is in their versatility and protective qualities. It can relax any curl, this does not need to be the case if it isn’t wanted.

Personalisation of Service:
Every Keratin treatment begins with a thorough consultation where your stylist will tailor the service to meet your hair’s needs and your desired look. Whether you want to de-frizz, define your curls, or smooth things out, Keratin Therapy Lisse Design services can leave your hair manageable, frizz-free, and shorten your blow-drying time for up to four months.

FAQs About Professional Hair Care

Using professional hair treatments once a week is recommended to maintain hair’s optimum health.

What’s wrong with sulphates in hair products?

Why choose salon-grade products over supermarket ones?

Silicones aren’t necessarily bad but can weigh hair down and only provide superficial smoothness without treating underlying hair health.

Keratin treatments can smooth, tame, and define hair, making it more manageable and reducing styling time.
