1.

“Book a conditioning treatment when your colour is done or use an over-night deep conditioning treatment soon after.” – Nick Irwin

 

2.

“Always have a consultation before you have your colour done. Take in tear sheets of hair colour that you like and also the colour you don’t want – aim to take five you love, five you hate.” – Josh Wood

 

3.

“With a new colour you need to be fully aware of what you are committing to – if you want to go very blonde you can’t use straighteners every day, also how often will your roots need doing?” – Josh Wood

“Don’t wash your hair everyday – it’s strips off all the healthy nutrients and leave your hair dehydrated, which leads to more oil production” – Aurora Hairdressing.

“A mini daily scalp massage is great for hair; spend two minutes gently kneading the scalp to improve blood flow as a healthy scalp = healthy hair.” – Philip Kingsley

3.

“Rubbing hair with a towel is one of the most damaging things. After that it’s over-heating the hair with driers, curling wands and straightening irons.” – Nick Irwin.

Hi Everyone,

Did you wash your hair today? Or better yet, did you NEED to wash it today? Many people suffer from an oily scalp and feel like they can’t go a day in between washes without risking a bad (and greasy) hair day. But what they don’t realize is that a daily shampooing – which seems absolutely necessary when looking in the mirror – is actually doing more harm than good to their locks. When you wash your hair every day you actually strip your hair of all the nutrients and natural oils it needs to be healthy. This can lead to breakage, brittle strands, very little shine, and overall, it will dry out your scalp.

Forgoing a wash may seem crazy, but skipping days in between shampooing will actually slow down oil production and leave you with a healthier, more styling-friendly mane. It may seem like you’re running a marathon you can’t finish by taking on the task of training your hair not to need a daily dose of shampoo, but a month or so of effort, a few hat days and the following steps, and you’ll be well on your way to the hair you always wanted. Shiny, grease-free hair, here we come!

Day 1

Wash your hair as you normally do and style. If you use products on your tresses, like hairsprays or volumizers, that’s fine. They’ll actually help the texture and will keep your strands looking less greasy in the days to come.

Day 2

A shower always does a body good, especially if you’ve worked out or need to shave. On the second day though, don’t wash your hair. Instead put it up on your head with a clip or wear a shower cap to prevent your hair from getting wet. Once out of the shower, follow your beauty route as usual. When ready to style your hair, add a little volume to your tresses by teasing the sides just a bit and go about your day. If you have super oily hair, spray a thin layer of dry shampoo at your roots and work it in with your fingers.

**Aurora Hairdressing Stylist recommend L’Oreal Techni Art Fresh Dust – Dry shampoo, the professional formula absorbs oil, with a light-weight feel and shiny look, so hair feels and smells like freshly washed hair. And L’Oreal Techni Art Air Fix – hair spray which creates long-lasting anti-frizz protection, with a strong hold and a natural-looking shiny finish. Easy to brush out, with no visible residue.

Day 3

If your scalp isn’t too oily by day three you may get away with a little more dry shampoo, but I suggest going the updo route. You can wear a messy bun or a sleek ponytail. Either works, as one plays on the texture of your hair and the other uses the oils in your locks to smooth out your hairstyle. Then, go about your day as usual.

Day 4

If you’re feeling super daring and have a day of relaxation ahead, consider day four a hat day. But, most of us will be at that point when washing our hair just makes sense. On day four you’ll have some dry shampoo build up and are probably longing for hair you can run your fingers through once again. Hop in the shower and shampoo as you did on day one!

Bonus Trick:

If on day two you wake up with a crease in your hair or what seems to be an unmanageable calic, hop in the shower and wet your hair with warm water (Not hot!). Apply conditioner half way up your hair to the ends, let sit three minutes, and then rinse out. This will condition your strands without striping your roots of oils. Finish by blow drying your hair with the cool air setting on your blow dryer.

After a few weeks of following this four-day process your hair will begin producing less oil. Remember, patience is key – once you can make it two days, you can train for three and so on.

Good luck!
