Healthy Hair is Beautiful Hair

We have reached peak hair processing and more of us are realising that a kinder, gentler relationship with our hair is healthier.

Over-processed hair doesn’t look or feel good. We want hair that looks alive, and we want our at home colour to give us gorgeous colour, and to help support strong, healthy hair which looks and feels its best.

Sometimes less really is more.

To embrace a healthier relationship with your hair look for PPD and ammonia free colour, and shampoo and hair products without sulfate, parabens and phthalates and alcohol, all of which can dry or weaken your hair.

Handy Hints for Happy Healthy Hair

  • Avoid damaging and drying your hair by reducing or eliminating styling with heated styling tools, excessing lightening processes, and alcohol based styling products. Preventing hair damage is cheaper, easier and faster than repairing damaged hair.
  • A trim every 6 weeks will keep your ends fresh and settled. Professional home colouring will keep your colour fresh, beautiful and shiny, oil treatments will support the condition and health of your hair and scalp, but please don’t DIY the cut! You can be in and out of the salon in less than half an hour for a simple cut, and after the blow dry washes out, there’s not often too much of a difference between a $30 or $150 cut.
  • Coloured hair needs a little extra love. The colouring process opens and closes the hair cuticles to deposit colour, and coloured hair will need extra support and care to maintain a natural, healthy look. Look for PPD, parabens, phthalates and ammonia free colour to avoid unnecessary exposure to harsh chemicals which can have unwanted health effects. Ideally, your colour formula will also be blended with botanical ingredients which can also deliver restorative and reparative effects to your hair and scalp.
  • Super-charge the health of your hair with regular thermal oil treatments. Our favourite treatment is thermal Tsubaki oil treatments, used weekly or fortnightly. Tsubaki oil is rich in Oleic acids, proteins and nutrients which are deeply absorbed into the hair when used with a thermal heat cap. The results are transformative – softer, stronger, shinier, deeply nourished hair.

You may be colouring for a fresh, seasonal change, for a new complimentary look and/or to cover some greys that you aren’t quite ready to embrace just yet. Avoid exposure to harsh chemicals (such as ammonia and PPD) colour to reduce the chemical stress on your hair and health and go for the trifecta – colour, condition and cut.

Our salon grade formula delivers multi-dimensional colour at home while avoiding some harsh and outdated chemicals. Using products with a healthier ingredient profile will improve the health and condition of your hair.
