24 Tips for Christmas - L’Oréal Professionnel

With over 30 years of experience in the hairdressing industry, I’m here to share with you some of my best hair and styling tips during this festive time of year….
1. Don’t over stimulate your scalp when shampooing, this will activate the sebaceous glands eventually making your hair greasier.
2. Brush your hair immediately when you wake, while your head is still warm, it will memorise you style from the day before.
3. Use your conditioner on the mid-lengths and ends, as its where the conditioner is most needed.
4. Always use a heat protector, even before the hairdryer.

3. Lightweight Touch
4. Softness
5. Detangling
6. Conditioning
7. Manageability
8. Shine
9. Protection
10. Smoothness

 

 

5. Blast your hair with the cold air setting to set your hair after blow-drying.

6. Don’t shampoo your hair too often, try to go that extra day.

7. Make sure to use the appropriate hair brushes for the relevant job to ensure the best results.

8. Sleep on a silk pillowcase, this will rehydrate your hair, cotton fabrics will remove moisture.

9. Deep condition your hair using a mask every 7 shampoos to help look after the hair.
