I went to a client after work and I needed a minicab. Otherwise I would have been late. I was greeted by two old people who seemed ill as well. The woman could not walk straight. They were both arguing. And her hair was frizzy and in a mess. I thought oh no, but after when I cut her hair, I saw that it could look better. The scalp was ok and healthy and I could cut off as much of the splitted ends as possible. I still wasn't sure to do the perm. I had Loreal perm lotion with me instead of Wella. So, wasn't sure how it would turn out. But it really turned out fantastic. I let the hair getting naturally dry during the cut and so applied the lotion on damp and dry hair which was the best idea ever The perm after just 15 minutes turned strong and perfect. The curls were all equally strong and the same. Wow, this made me happy. ​ She of course wanted a setting, which I applied and then paid the asked money. She was happy. ​ So, if you want a perm, ask me. Text me 07957564406

Hair loss and thinning of your hair has become an issue of concern for some of us, sadly though as we would like to enjoy a beautiful mane. Instead we fret every stroke through our hair in fear of loosing more of it. It has become an ongoing issue with lots of hair hanging in combs and brushes. Youre to scared to look into the mirror as you can see your scalp far to clearly. Customers came up to me and asked what they can do. I have found HAIRGAIN an Beauty Exhibition in London two years ago and bought one pack. HAIRGAIN GETS MORE AND MORE GOOD REVIEWS. If one wants to get deeper into the issue of hair loss and loves to have regular treatment and consultation, then they can go to one of the hair loss clinics. We have in London several such clinics and one the Belgravia Centre will love to help you all the way. It is a money thing of course, sadly though. You can start with buying HAIRGAIN from it's website or Amazon. You could go to the doctor and you could take over the counter medicine from Boots and keep taking these products for at least 3 month in order to find out if there is a difference. Then if there is no difference you go to one of the hair loss clinics and go with them through the process of first consultation, blood tests and check ups and treatments. The hair loss clinics start off with charging you more or less £500 for check up and then you can get constantly tested and then you have to pay a regularly monthly fee for the hair treatments. It isn’t cheap but it is definitely worth trying. It is normal to loos hair. We can shed up to 100 hairs and don’t need to call it hair loss. But seeing through to your scalp one day and the next day and so on, is not what we want. It means that you not just lost hair, but a lot of hair is not growing back. Or is brakes and it comes across as fluffy. The reason for it can be many. Can be stress, hormones, medication, shock, sudden change of things, you are ill and it is a side effect of the medication, or illness as the reason for hair loss. It is worth to go and see the doctor and talk with him or her about it, before going private. The medicine doctors usually describe is minoxidil for example. You definitely should start with any treatment as it will get worth with the time. Doing nothing and think you can save the money, means you might could end up with bald patches you won’t be able to cover. Well, it don't need to be this bad, but I have seen that over a course of 6 month hair has become thinner and it is now really time to start going for a treatment. I have this problem as well. I will report here.

HOW TO GET SOME STRENGTH INTO YOUR STRESSED BLOND HAIR BECAUSE OF REPEATED BLEACHING After 20 years as a hairdresser I have learned about bonding shampoos and experienced them for my hair as well. They are the new magic, but seems difficult to get by as not many companies sell them. And they call it by different names. One call it keratin shampoos and the other bonding shampoos, which is actually the same. So confusing and who knows about it what they do? WHAT DOES BONDING DO FOR YOUR HAIR? It restores the inner texture of your hair which have been broken. It gives back its strength and resilience. Which makes it shinier then and smoother, but mainly what you want is strength in your hair. The structure of your hair consists of your cuticles, as the outer layer. The cortex the next layer with its fibrils a group of Keratin which are held together by the bonds. There are two types of bonds. One the Hydrogen bonds that make your hair elastic and the possibility to get into different forms. With the application of heat or chemicals, the hair can get straight or curly. Then we have the Disulphides which will keep the shape of your hair and so give it it’s strength. We have our own keratin which is a protective protein. We can find them as well in our nails, hair, and skin and in our organs and glands. And the one who we find in hair-products. These keratins are extracted from wool, horn, and feathers. Keratin protein gives strength and hinders damages. A keratin shampoo repairs damages to your hair, gives strength back and make it smooth again. Means the cuticles who were standing up are laying flat. Your hair will look healthier again. There is no danger of harsh chemicals in the shampoo as with the Keratin Blow Out treatment for your hair. There are Keratin supplements as well, which you can buy in health food shops. But the danger here is that if you take more than the recommended dosage, you feed your bodies something that will produce to many proteins, your body doesn’t need.

At the start we have to go back into prehistoric history of at least 11,000 years ago. The theory is that we all had one’s black hair and with the emigration from Africa to Europe these changed. Northern Europe has fewer hours of sunlight and at that time was covered in ice. People who lived there underwent a genetic mutation that resulted in depigmentation of skin and hair. Because it allows greater penetration of the skin by ultraviolet B (UVB) sunlight. (Which is needed to synthesise provitamin D3)! That means because of the process of losing a whole range of pigments, more and more people were born with different hair colours and even became blond. Blond is the last pigment and people with blond hair look healthier, often better, younger and in general are different looking and outstanding from the black group. At the same time in the Ice-age of Europe life was hard and dangerous and men died in large numbers when hunting for food. Hunting Bisons and Mammon’s. So, the theory goes that there were too many women competing against each other to win over male partners, as too many men had died hunting. And in men in later centuries, blond men were seen as strong and protective, as they showed that they could fight off dangerous marauding bands of people who were attacking villages at that time. So, sexual selection for survival played a huge role in making the hair colour blond as a dominant factor. Blond men seem to be good fighters and protective of their families. And blond women are seen as younger, healthier, and outstanding from the group of dark-haired women. They stay longer young it seems. Many do not get the amount of grey hair as dark hair people. Even dark blondes have less grey hair then dark brown hair. The skin ages slower in many.

We keep it mostly straight, don't have energy to try something out as it will not last. It flys in the wind like feathers and is sometimes even lifeless. I could cry, but there are some tricks. We stylists have tried out many shampoos on clients and on ourselves and I struck lucky. I have one which is cristal clear and it really washes well, volumnises and gives a healthy strong look. AND ANOTHER TRICK These days some companies came up with the idea for scalp srubs if poeple which have difficulties with dandruff for example. But finer srubs can help to further clean and volumnise hair as well. You simply can use one for your face! But as it is then difficult to comb it, espechially after the washing when your hair is wet. Blow dry it dry and then comb it with a brush not with a comb!! Then you do the styling Use a middle large round brush. Blow dry large curls into it and spray each strand with a good hairspray. Of course you can work a curling spray into you hair at the start. But be careful here that it not acts like a glue and makes blow drying difficult. Then roll your strands up and clamp them tied. And leave it on during the time you put your make up on. And the last trick is? Use a headscarve when it is windy, or an umbrella when it rains and show off your hair-craft at a party or dinner.

We all want beautiful blond hair and think by simply calling for a stylist, she will be able to deliver. But the truth is, it isn't so easy. Too many people play around with box colours at home and some even use oils and hair wax regualry for hair care. All these products act as barriers to the bleaching process. And then there are the ideas to have light blond hair and don't want ginger. First of all the barriers need to be removed which will be done with washing out twice before one can start. Then a color wash could help, but even this sometimes doesn't do much. And then one can start with the bleaching process. And of course a strand test to find out if your hair is strong enough to get through the whole process, should be done at the very beginning and you need time. It can take half a day and longer. But I would not do more then twice bleaching on one given day. The Pigments The darkest pigments are the black pigments, then comes brown, then red, orange, yellow and then light yellow to white. When nothing happen, like the bleach is not able to penetrate the hair cuticles, then there is simply too much of everything in the hair. It is a build up and you have to let it grow out and keep you hands off black or red box colores, oils and waxes. You will discuss these things with the stylist and should pay at least for the products and time spend on the hair. If the color wash and bleaching process help, then you can get through to level 6, which is a type of darkish blond. A very save tone for people who aren't used to blond shades. These days with the new technique on bleaches such as from Wella or Schwarzkopf, the hair might not become ginger. It can happen, and one can go over the ends again by affected strands. If the hair was colored red before, then it is such a strong pigment that it stay inside the hair cuticle and one needs some month time with repeated bleaching to get rid of the red shade. Of course that by all the work the hair stays intact, ongoing checking is essential. The use of OLAPLEX or WELLAPLEX or similar will help. I use as well bonding shampoos and bonding treatment creams to get the hair smooth and sleek. A shampoo and treatment cream can bought from me. The whole process is a colour correction.
