Dull to Divine

A Journey from Dull to Divine:

I love helping my salon guests get their hair back into a shiny healthy condition when it feels that all is dead and dull.

I am going to share one such story, and hope that that the results have you inspired to do the same!

My story begins with me introducing you to Jane:

Jane came in to see me in my salon and get my help to restore her hair back to a luscious healthy finish.

Jane has been trying to grow her hair and her daily routine is wearing her hair straight to remove natural Curl and Frizz.

I can tell you that Jane has naturally very course hair and it has permanent colour as well. Jane also tells me that she has had a permanent chemical straightening once or twice over the past 2 - 3 years.

Jane’s main concern is the look and the health of her hair. “It has lost its spring” jane says, and I explain that her hairs porosity( the hair's ability to absorb moisture ) has been compromised. Continually heating and treating her hair will also have had an effect on her hairs health.

The Salon Treatment Plan:

My salon service treatment plan for Jane today is as follows:

  • Touch up root colour where regrowth is visible and re fresh vibrancy of Copper Red tones where the hair is the most healthy and avoid taking permanent colour over weakened lengths as this would contribute to even more compromised porosity to the hair shaft.

  • A semi permanent colour will enhance and revitalise the tired existing copper/red and I will use Olaplex hair Treatment #1 during the colour process.!

  • Olaplex #2 hair treatment will be used at the end of the colour service to deposit and repair bonds in the hair and aid in its rebuilding.

  • Jane will benefit from having a hair cut today even though we have discussed that length is very important to her, my advice is that hair that is displaying healthy and rich will look longer and thicker then hair that exists for length alone.

  • A rich leave-in moisturiser will be used at the end of Jane’s cleansing

  • Styling products will be Goldwell Sleek serum spray to aid in the performance of the finished look as well as a Thermal heat protect Spray to keep hair protected on every section we style using heat.

After a thorough consultation with Jane and understanding that it is of great importance that we get her hair on the road t
