Defy the damage of winter...

Updated: Nov 12, 2019

So winter is coming, and we are all getting present shopping ready to treat our family and friends.

But what about treating your hair?

We all tend to moisturise our faces, protect our lips and make sure hands are looked after, but we forget about our hair. We might get it cut every six weeks and coloured every four to ten weeks, we also wash our hair to make sure it doesn't look dirty... on the outside.

But what about the inside of our hair?

Did you know, everyone has experienced some form of hair breakage, whether it’s split ends, excessive shedding, or brittle strands that break off easily. It can be very frustrating, especially if you’re trying to grow out your hair into long and healthy locks.

It’s important to note that some hair loss is completely normal. The average person actually loses 60-100 hairs a day.

How do you fix breakage in your hair?

If you suffer from hair breakage, make sure you do these eight things to help your strands recover.

Salon Condition Treatments

Lower The Temperature On Your Styling Tools

Use A Heat Protector

Use A Detangler

Skip The Topknot or tight pony

Do Treatments Before/After Color

Im currently working with DEFY DAMAGE by Joico in salon which is a complete GAME CHANGER. We've heard all the "plex's" possible, its such a fresh approach moving away from that word, and telling it how it is. DEFY DAMAGE it says what it does on the tin.
