What is Healthcare for Hair?

What is Healthcare for Hair?

You may have seen this caption on our product labels. But what does it really mean?

Our registered strapline embodies the ethos born out of 43 years of salon haircare. I know that condition is a prerequisite for great looking hair. But not just for the look and feel. Healthy hair is much easier to style and the styles hold much longer. Neglected dry and damaged hair narrows down the style and colour choices and takes much more effort for less result, as well as not looking as vibrant and alive as it could and should. And as much as our team love doing all sorts of interesting things with hair, the health costs are always forefront of our minds and this shapes our styling and colouring techniques as well as product design.

Every product in our 3’’’More Inches range is created to deliver the best results whilst respecting and improving hair health. But of course, that’s obvious you’ll say, yet sadly that’s not the case for 95% of hair products out there which are designed to give you all the bang today without any care for your hair health tomorrow. Many of these products are harsh and age the hair quicker, leaving it thin, dry and harder to manage.

The fact is, your hair is slowly wasting away. As fresh hair grows from the scalp it’s at its fulsome, supple best. Each time you wash it and heat style it, use harsh products, colour it, go out in daylight, swim in the sea or pool, the hair is depleted a little more. LifeSaver protects your hair so you can have more fun with it.

But only putting LifeSaver on once a month, will make the hair lovely for a week, but 2 to 3 washes will take it out, and then the bare vulnerable hair is once again exposed to the ageing and shrinking of modern living.

Regular use of LifeSaver Prewash Treatment holds the hair structure together, slowing down the rate of shrinking and ageing. It’s why LifeSaver needs the habit of a regular system. For some this is in the morning before going for a salon blowdry, or before exercise. For others it’s a few hours before bedtime – it works brilliantly overnight.

Great hair does take a little effort behind the scenes and we’ve designed LifeSaver Prewash to be the easiest treatment to apply to dry hair. Mine takes 20 seconds. For long hair it may take a minute. It really is that simple. Check out the reviews.

Coupe Sauvage was the brief. That French term from the 1970s encapsulating all lengths of very layered, textured, vibrant styles that hinted at the sexuality of wild, rampant and raw. And growing out tint isn't always successful, most people return to having colour, but Julie's was a rare case where the...

Where were you standing when you decided to adjust your hair colour? Do you stand there often?

At the first salon I worked as a junior, back in the last century, the colourists at the salon had an interesting technique for showing clients their finished results; escorting them to the ladies toilet where a single electric wall light seemed to cast a favourable glow.
