1. Wet hair is up to ten times more sensitive
than dry hair. Therefore, in general always
squeeze out excess water, never rub!
2. Avoid drying at high temperatures in order
to protect the hair.
3. Do not over-expose the hair to salt or chlorinated
water in order to avoid excessive
loss of moisture.
4. A balanced diet contributes towards the
healthy appearance of the hair.
5. Have colour and perm treatments carried
out only by a professional in order to ensure
maximum protection and retention of
the structure of the hair.
6. Avoid using low-quality combs and
honest with your hairstylist is
always the best approach. If
there is something that you
don't like about him/her, let
them know. They will be more
than happy to make the
adjustments and accommodate your
beauty/style needs. This will
also save you time searching for
a new one.
