Quick Hairdressing Tips From Our Salon Experts

As one of the busiest hairdressers in Edinburgh we see hundreds of clients in our salon every month. From cutting hair to styling the latest fashions and trends our qualified staff have a wealth of knowledge. Here are some quick answers to three of the most common questions we get.

How Can I Smooth and DeFrizz My Hair?

If your hair just won’t do what it’s told then fortunately help is at hand. L’Oreal have two ranges that have proved particular favourites with our customers.

Sometime we recommend Liss Unlimited shampoo and conditioner (pick some up the next time you visit us). This helps replenish and smooth even the most rebellious of hair.

The shampoo is enriched with pro-keratin and kukui & evening primrose oils and it purifies the hair & scalp and provides an anti-frizz effect.

Kukui nut oil is a traditional Polynesian remedy to help soothe skin from the effects of sun, wind and other natural elements. It’s a natural moisturizer and full of antioxidants so is great for your hair. It also can help combat the discomfort of a dry, itchy scalp.

The Liss Unlimited Conditioning Masque contains the same key ingredients as the shampoo and should be applied to damp, clean hair. Leave it for a few minutes and then rinse off.
The result? Your hair will behave!

Another great range is ABSOLUT REPAIR Lipidium which is enhanced with lipids, ceramides, lactic acid and phyto-keratin. These products leave hair feeling softer and stronger and help reduce the signs of damage. From shampoo and conditioner to repairing serums our highly trained stylists can guide you to the perfect products that will moisturise and nourish your hair. Hair care technology is always evolving and we keep up to date with the latest developments so be sure to ask us if you have any concerns about your hair.

How Can I Add Volume To Thin Hair?

Your hair care routine plays a crucial role in making your hair thicker. The new L’Oreal Professional range of Serioxyl products can help you achieve the perfect level of fullness, by adding thickness, density and lift to your hair. We use them in-salon and our customers have been delighted with the results.

Many women use the wrong brushes for their particular hair type and when you next visit us your stylist can advise you on the correct brush to use and show you how to best use it.

We love sharing what we know and are always delighted to offer you styling tips to you can keep those salon-fabulous looks once you are back at home.

How Can I Straighten My Hair Without Damaging It?

Achieving straight hair without damaging it comes down to two things – the equipment and products you use and how you apply them. Buying cheap straightening irons can be a false saving and may result in long-lasting damage to your hair. Only use reputable brands. We recommend Steam Pod straighteners, brought to you by L’Oréal Professionnel and Rowenta Salon Electricals. When using Steam Pod straighteners with the recommended products you can create a straightening effect that can last for up to three days. The Steam Pod Protective Smoothing Serum and Replenishing Smoothing Cream come with the benefits of pro-keratin and avocado oil, ensuring your hair is well-nourished, protected, and strengthened. We use the Steam Pod system and in the hands of a skilled stylist it brings amazing results.

If you’re in the unfortunate position of having hair that is already damaged by straightening we have gotten very excited about a brand new product called Mythic Oil Seve Protectrice. Applied to dry or damp hair this provides a protective coating and allows your hair to be protected up to 230 degrees centrigrade.

The Mythic Oil range also contains shampoo, conditioner, masque and oil and leaves your hair shiny, light and healthy. We’ve been using it with our hairdressing customers with great results.

We use all of the products mentioned above every day to give our clients fabulous hair. They are also for sale in our salon shop at 70 Morningside Road, Edinburgh. When you visit to get your hair cut or coloured ask us about them – we’ll be delighted to give advice and walk you through the best options for you.
