Blond Highlights and Swimming Pools
We often hear from women who have blonde highlights in their hair and who enjoy swimming a lot, that every time they go to the swimming pool, their blonde highlights turn greenish. What can they do about this? If you have highlights in your hair, and especially blonde highlights, the chlorine in the swimming pool will affect the colour. With repetitive exposure to chlorine and sunshine, your blonde highlights will turn green. In order to remedy this you shouldn’t just redo your highlights again to get the original color. This will result in breakage to your hair. If you are going to have the color redone, only do the roots.…
Hair loss! A common problem?
We have had a flood of questions this week regarding hair loss. Before I say anything, I want to tell you all not to panic. Hair loss is very common!

Your child hates having their hair combed?
Young children tend to dislike having their hair combed or groomed, mostly due to their sensitive scalp. First of all, I would say try using a softer brush. Some children (and adults) simply can’t stand the pulling and tugging of the hair. With a sensitive scalp, the top layer – the scalp’s protective barrier – is more permeable from external factors which might irritate the skin. As a result, it is not able to fulfil its protective function properly. Factors such as heat, cold or chemicals can penetrate through the barrier and deep into the skin. The scalp reacts with inflammation, reddening and irritation, and feels tense. Skin can vary…
How to enhance your natural highlights
If you have natural highlights, when exposed to the sun, and want to bring out the natural lighter tones without having your hair looking dry and damaged? The most common way to naturally enhance blonde highlights is to use some lemon on your hair when you are in the sun; this is a sure way to get your locks gleaming.
