Regardless of any of our hair concerns, we all aspire for the same thing and that’s having great looking hair. With that in mind, we’ve picked out some of the most common hair concerns and how to overcome them the Neville way.
Dandruff is a scalp condition that causes flaky particles of skin to detach and linger on your hairline and clothes. Often embarrassing and difficult to treat, dandruff can also be triggered by stress or a poor diet. There are various ways to treat dandruff, but if this is a recurring problem you should seek medical advice. For those suffering from mild dandruff we recommend using Kérastase Specifique Bain Anti-Pelliculaire. Infused with Zinc Pyrithione and salicylic acid, this shampoo cleanses and eliminates impurities from the hair and scalp by targeting the bacteria responsible for dandruff and purifying the scalp of sebum known to cause dandruff. Visible flakes are removed for up to 8 weeks for both oily and dry dandruff. The shampoo can also be used in conjunction with the Kérastase
The shampoo can also be used in conjunction with the Kérastase Anti-Dandruff Scalp Treatment which restores the visible quality and suppleness of the scalp, while protecting against oxidative stress. This treatment leaves the scalp feeling soothed and diminishes itchiness due to dryness and redness.
2. Hair Loss
Hair loss although frequently associated as a problem faced mostly by men, is also a common issue for women. Men’s hair loss often presents itself as a balding pattern whereas women experience a decrease in volume and increased shedding. The causes vary but can often be linked to stress, hormonal changes, menopause and daily aggressors. We recommend investing in a water filter for your shower which can help reduce the amount of lead and zinc that your hair is exposed to. In addition, you should try switching up your haircare routine. We love the new Kérastase Genesis Range which is formulated for weakened hair, prone to falling due to breakage. Enriched with Edelweiss Native Cells, Ginger Root & Aquaxyl this shampoo gently clarifies and helps reinforce fibre to reduce the risk of hair-fall due to breakage. Finally try and avoid heat appliances when possible.
3. Dry Hair
Over washing your hair can be one of the main causes for it to dry out as it can strip away your hairs’ natural oils. To help prevent it from drying out we recommend using conditioning treatments regularly. At Neville’s we offer a variety of in salon treatments such as Fusio Dose, Olaplex and the Redken Gold mask to help restore your hair’s natural moisture. These can be booked in online via our website or via phone on 0207 235 3654. We also recommend using hydrating haircare treatments at home such as the Balmain overnight repair serum designed to repair and strengthen your hair against breakage or the Balmain repair mask for extra nourishment.
4. Split Ends
Unless you follow a diligent regime when it comes to hair cutting you are most likely prone to split ends. These can occur as a result of overbrushing or excessive heat application. It’s important to remember that you should treat your hair with the same care you would treat your skin. Here at Neville, we offer a thermal scissor cut. Using heated scissor blades to round off and seal the hair tip to lock in moisture and minimise the damage that is caused by pollution, sunlight and heat styling. Expect your thermal scissor cut to last an extra month, split end free. Great for stretching out time between appointments. In addition, we recommend using a good quality hairbrush such as our Neville Paddle brush.
5. Greasy Hair
I’m sure you’ve heard of the word sebum before which is the name of the natural oil your scalp produces. At times your scalp can produce too much of it, which is when you are likely to experience greasy hair. You might be tempted to try and strip the oils using harsher shampoos, however these natural oils are primordial to maintain healthy luscious locks. So what’s the solution ? Try spacing out shampoos and replace every two washes with the use of dry shampoo. When applying conditioner try and avoid putting any on the roots, instead focus on the ends of your hair. When possible try using a cleansing shampoo to remove any product build-up on your scalp. We are particularly fond of Kérastase Specifique Bain Divalent which is a scalp shampoo for oily roots. It treats the hair fiber from lengths to tips to nourish dry and sensitized ends for hair to regain softness and shine. Hair at the roots greases less quickly while lengths remain nourished with split ends sealed.
