Treat Your Hair
If you are like Rapunzel and want to let down your hair to attract a gorgeous prince, make sure you use hair treatments regularly to prevent breakage, dryness and damage.
Heated styling, colouring, chemical straightening, swimming, and even the harsh Australian summer conditions all take their toll on your hair. Repeated exposure to all or any of these things leaves your hair dry, dull, damaged and hard to manage. Hair treatments can help to prevent, minimise and repair damage, keeping it strong and healthy.
How to treat hair
Firstly you need to assess what treatment your hair needs. If you’re not sure, the helpful staff at your nearest Hairhouse Warehouse salon can help you identify your hair type and the cause of the damage.
For broken, damaged strands look for a restructuring or fortifying product which will repair and restore elasticity, such as Olaplex or MATRIX Biolage Fiberstrong Fortifying Cream. The Olaplex range is a bond multiplier which repairs breakage and is free from silicone, sulfates, phthalates, DEA, and aldehydes. It consists of shampoo, conditioner and restructuring treatment creams. Biolage Fiberstrong is a leave-in treatment designed to strengthen and prevent against hair breakage.
If your hair is dry, dull and unmanageable transform it into soft and silky locks with treatments designed to infuse moisture deep into the hair and scalp. Look for replenishing, hydrating products such as JOICO Moisture Recovery Treatment Balm. Applied to wet hair 2-3 times per week in place of conditioner, this intensive moisturising treatment will smooth cuticles leaving your hair revitalised and deeply moisturised.
Treatments for hair which contain oils will also replenish, deeply hydrate and restore elasticity. PAUL MITCHELL Marula Oil Rare Oil Intensive Hair Masque can be used in place of conditioner to provide a deep conditioning treatment. It is full of nourishing antioxidants, proteins and vitamins helping to prevent against damage while sealing split ends and protecting against harmful UV rays.
Which treatment is best for hair?
Finding which treatment is best for your hair is dependant on your type of hair and the condition it is in. Some treatments that work well on thick, coarse, dry hair won’t suit fine, limp hair. Hair which is colour treated may need different treatments to natural hair which is damaged by heated styling.
At Hairhouse Warehouse the huge range of treatments for hair is designed to cover every possible hair type and all the causes of damaged hair.
How much is hair treatment?
Hairhouse Warehouse treatments for hair range in price from as little as $9.96 to $65.95. Used moderately, your hair treatments will last for a long time.
How to use hair treatment products
How to use hair treatment products depends on the product itself. Some treatments for hair are designed to be applied before styling and left in, others should be rinsed out like a conditioner. Some are applied to damp hair and left in for an extended period of time, before rinsing out.
The frequency also varies from product to product. Some may be used several times a week, where others are designed for weekly or monthly application. Always read the instructions on your hair treatments before applying.
Do hair treatments work?
Hair treatments work over a period of time. They are intensive products infused with ingredients designed to penetrate the hair shaft, hydrating, strengthening and smoothing cuticles to improve your hair’s condition, manageability and resilience.
Treatments for hair help to prevent damage, fortifying the hair with nourishing ingredients which protect and shield from heat, chemicals and damaging environmental conditions.
Even if you are like Rapunzel and have a perfect head of super-long, mega-strong hair, you will benefit from regular treatments which will ensure it stays that way. So go on, treat your hair today, there might be a prince lurking nearby…
