Just been to the hairdresser and she commented that my hair has become very dry and said I should use regular deep conditioning treatments. I feel like pampering myself so can anyone recommend a really good one? I am mid-forties with naturally wavy long brown hair. Not coloured or heat damaged. Thanks in advance!
You can walk into any salon & buy stuff! Mix almond oil & you usual conditioner. Warm in the microwave. Massage it in. Cover with plastic shower cap, plastic bag, cling film etc & a towel. Leave on for as long as possible before washing out. You could use coconut oil or olive oil too.
Avocado oil. The stuff is amazing. You can buy it in Sainsburys and Waitrose. Apply to dry hair in the evening. Go to bed with an old towel on your pillow, wash hair in the morning, admire unrivalled softness.
Avocado oil is great for skincare too (unless you are prone to acne or breakouts, it's not recommended then).
Olaplex no 3 is a treatment. You can use it at home. It no 1&2 that is used in colour or during a colour service. You can buy it from salon services or if there's a salon that uses olaplex they should be able to sell you the no 3 separately. It's expensive but you use hardly any.
