FROM TECHNIQUES TO TREATMENT, PROFESSIONAL STYLISTS ANSWER 6 TOP HAIR QUESTIONS!
WESTROW STYLISTS BRAINSTORMED THIS WEEK TO FIND THE TOP QUESTIONS THAT THE MAJORITY OF THEIR CLIENTS HAVE ASKED IN THE PAST.
1. HOW CAN I PREVENT MY COLOUR FROM FADING IN BETWEEN APPOINTMENTS?
“You will notice major improvements by using the right shampoos and conditioners. Always look for sulfate-free or ones that state they are ‘Colour Protecting’. I’ve found a good trio to use to keep my clients stay vibrant between appointments.”
“First step use the Kerastase Bain Chroma Captive and the Fondant Chroma Captive in the shower. For extra protection, style with L’Oreal Vitamino A-OX 10 in 1 before blow drying the hair.” – Daniella, Stylist at Westrow York
2. CAN I GO LIGHTER WITH MY HAIR COLOUR WITHOUT SERIOUSLY DAMAGING THE CONDITION?
“It is possible to go lighter with out the damage. There are lots of new technologies available on the market, such as Smart Bond.”
“Smart Bond is a bonding system by L’Oréal Professionnel which can help you achieve lighter shades without compromising on the condition of your hair.” – Team at Westrow 18 Thornton’s Arcade

3. HOW DO I STOP MY CURLS FROM DROPPING THROUGHOUT THE DAY?
Strong hairsprays such as L’Oreal Air Fix are used all over the industry in amazing shows, such as London Fashion Week. Air Fix is particularly good at keeping hair in place through the heat of spotlights and humidity backstage.
“Tilt your head upside down and spray. Then flick hair back in place and spritz over the top for all over hold. To add extra volume, scrunch the curls with your fingertips.” – Team at Westrow York
4. HOW CAN I RECREATE THE BEACH WAVE LOOK AT HOME?
“First of all start by applying Kerastase Spray a Porter to towel dried hair and blast dry until hair is 100% dry.”
“Using a medium size curling tong such as the ghd Curve Classic Curl, take 2 inch sections, twist each section and loosely wrap around the tong leaving out the very ends, continue all over the head.”
5. HOW DO I STOP MY HAIR FROM ALWAYS LOOKING SO DULL?
Hair can start looking dull when you use a lot of product and it builds up on top of the hair. Therefore to add shine and moisture back into hair you need to strip back all the products you use in your hair routine (if you use any at all) and make sure you have oil-based shampoos and conditioners like the Moroccanoil Hydrating Shampoo and Hydrating Conditioner.
These products are designed to infuse dehydrated hair with the moisture and shine that it’s missing.
6. HOW CAN I ACHIEVE MORE VOLUME IN MY HAIR?
“First of all, we would check your shampoo and conditioner is a light, to prevent the hair been weighted down. We would recommend the Densifique Bain Densite and the Fusio Dose Densite treatment to boost volume. These two products are for noticeably finer hair and clients who want to achieve a voluminous look.”
“In addition to your new shampoo and treatment, follow with a styling product before your blow dry to achieve even more volume. For thicker hair we would recommend Tecni.Art Pli, for finer hair we would recommend Tecni.Art Volume Architect. Apply the product onto towel dried hair (depending on product) and dry with a round brush pulling upwards to create lift at the roots.” – Team at Westrow 18 Thornton’s Arcade
