Ever think your hair game is a little lacking? Wish it looked like you visited the hair salon more often? Here are a few tricks of the trade that will have your hair feeling salon fresh for longer. 

Know when to visit your hairdresser

Keep your regular appointments! Visit every four weeks for bangs, four to six weeks for grey regrowth, six to seven weeks for regrowth without greys and five to seven weeks for a regular trim. For foils, visit every six to seven weeks, but have a toner in between at three weeks to keep the foils looking fresh.

Know your hair type.

Before being able to style hair beautifully, you need to know what you’re working with. Knowing your hair type and texture will help you weed through hair products and allow you to make the best choices for the health of your hair when styling. Ask your hairstylist for advice.

Dry Shampoo

Pressed for time to do a wash? Try some dry shampoo or baby powder to soak up the oil in your roots. You’ll save yourself an entire shampoo and blow dry session.

Overnight deep treatments

You can do plenty of great deep conditioning treatments at home. Opt for a leave-in deep conditioning treatment and let the product do the work for you while you sleep!


Knowing how to give yourself a good, lasting blowout is an invaluable styling skill. It is worthwhile investing in a good Blowdryer – we recommend the Ghd helios. They are light weight and give your hair a smooth finish. Sold instore.


Getting your hair full of moisture will help create an ever-lasting style. Opt for a plex, a hairdressing term for a leave-in hair treatment that reverses chemical and physical damage to the hair. Plex technologies aid the process of building bonds and work on improving the hair condition from within. We use and recommend K18 and Olaplex, just ask your stylist which would be best for your hair.
