Fight the Frizz

We have been using the Brasiliana treatment on our customers for the past 5 years and have loved it but this product really showed its value when Daniella came in to have it done on her Afro Caribbean hair.

For those of you that don’t know, La Brasiliana is a keratin treatment containing collagen which can help transform the hair into a shiny, healthy state.

brasilianaDaniella, came to us with big, unruly, afro-caribbean hair, as you can see below, it is long and thick and hard for Daniella to manage. when applied to her hair, the collagen part of the la brasiliana swells the hair from the inside of the hair shaft plumping it up and making it more elastic as the hair is naturally delicate. The keratin part then smooths over where the collagen sits helping the cuticle to lay flat, smoothing the hair shaft from the follicle to the ends of the hair.

This lasts up to 4 months and will make Daniella’s hair a lot more manageable, less tangled and smoother.

Olaplex Number 3 Home Treatment Arrives at Christos Newport Pagnell

Olaplex has been causing a huge stir in the US and we can see why. Our clients are loving the effects on their hair phoning and making special journeys back into the salon to make sure we know they will want the treatment every time we do their hair.  Quite simply, Olaplex is an additive that your hairdresser can add to chemical treatments such as colour and smoothing services to minimize the damage and improve the feel and look of your hair.

The treatment which is being called ‘insurance for your hair’ works by reconnecting broken bonds to dramatically improve damage from heat and colour. In addition Olaplex is free of silicone, sulfates, phthalates, DEA, aldehydes and is never tested on animals.

And now the Number 3 Hair Perfector which is a treatment for the client to use at home is arriving and we know it will fly off our shelves.
