The New Year is the perfect time to give our hair a much needed detox after all of the Christmas festivities and over-styling of our hair for Christmas and New Year parties.

To give your hair a much needed hair detox, it’s firstly important to book into the salon for a haircut. A simple trim will help to ‘reset’ your hair for the New Year, taking away any split ends and resulting in your hair looking a lot healthier and free from damage and frizz.

It’s beneficial to book in for a hair treatment with your haircut appointment to give your hair some extra nourishment and TLC! The winter weather can be harsh on our hair and coming from the outside cold weather to inside with the central heating on can leave our hair looking and feeling dry and lifeless and a professional hair treatment can help inject our locks with the moisture they need.

At home hair care is key for giving your hair a detox and allowing it to look and feel in the best condition possible. Healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp, therefore, a scalp scrub or exfoliant is a great product to add to your hair care routine, using a couple of times a month to keep your scalp healthy and to stimulate hair growth.

A good quality professional shampoo and conditioner is also a must. If you’re coming into the salon and spending money to have a great hair colour, it’s only right that you invest in the correct aftercare too that will help to keep your colour looking its best between appointments and long-lasting. As well as keeping your colour looking great with increase longevity, a good quality shampoo and conditioner will keep your moisturised and your hair smooth, shiny and manageable.

The Nine Yards Moisture or Repair range are great choices for the winter months to stop hair becoming dry and brittle. 100% free from parabens, sulphates and MIT amongst other unnecessary ingredients, these highly concentrated miracle workers contain potent natural goodies including Shea Butter, Broccoli Seed Oil, Aloe Vera, Wheat Protein, Meadowfoam oil, Argan and Sunflower seed extract, and all but two products in the range is Vegan.

At KAM we also advise to invest in a hair mask or treatment that you can use 1-2 times per week alongside your conditioner to give your hair more strength and elasticity. A hair mask is the ultimate treat for your hair. Give yourself some self-care time and allow the mask to repair damage and get rid of frizz, leaving your hair instantly stronger, shinier and softer. The Nine Yards Never Dull is an intense treatment designed to provide a reconstructing and strengthening effect for damaged hair.

Protein-rich formula to add manageability and restore to full strength. Ideal for dry, damaged or chemically treated hair in need of strengthening and added manageability. The product contains natural extracts of Shea butter, Coconut oil, Olive oil, Green Tea and Aloe Vera, Keratin and Wheat Protein and is also free from parabens, sulphates and MITis, which leaves hair feeling silky soft without feeling weighed down. This product give back bounce to hair that has lost elasticity, smooths frizzy hair. Using a treatment cuts your blow dry time down and leaves you with a fantastic result, always remember to do one before any nights out or days you want your hair looking its best.

After all the styling over the festivities, the start of 2022 is the best time to give your hair a break from the heated styling tools and instead, experiment with hairstyles that require no heat such as textured waves with the help of salt sprays and updos like ponytails, braids and buns. If you do need to use heated styling on your hair, ALWAYS, use a heat protection spray to keep your hair protected at all times. The Matrix Total Results Miracle Creator is one of my favourite products, it has 20 benefits in total including protecting against heat, replenishing moisture and keeping your hair looking healthy, soft and sleek.
