Hi,

please can you tell me what I can use to moisturise my highlighted blonde hair. I have been using my hairdryer and straighner a lot lately and it is leaving my hair dry and frizzy and brittle.

Hi Linda!
Firstly, you need to make sure that when you use a Straightening Iron YOU ALWAYS USE HEAT PROTECTION!
Ironing one’s hair takes out every single bit of natural moisture that your hair has, and that is why it lasts longer than a blowdry.
It is important to invest in a professional Heat Protector Spray that says on the bottle what temperature it protects your hair up to. Most irons are between 190-230 degrees and you need to have one that will protect up to those temperatures. The products you buy in the retail stores do not protect past a certain temperature.
MATRIX DESIGN PULSE Iron in R185
MATRIX TOTAL RESULTS Sleek Iron Smoother R185.
REDKEN Iron Silk R260.
Now lets chat about fixing your hair. You need to invest in a good shampoo and conditioner for damaged hair. A professional product has tiny molecules that work to strengthen from the inside out.
Shop products molecules are too big to penetrate the hair shaft, hence one of the reasons for price difference.
Your other alternative is to have a Brazilian Keratin Treatment. We have a special at our salon where you pay R999 and recommended Shampoo and Conditioner is included. This treatment will take your hair back to the once healthy and shiny state it was in before you started hilighting and straightening! It is revolutionary in the hair industry. Just be careful about buying a Groupon voucher as from what i have heard, the quality of the brands used is not very good and doesnt last very long.
Some great hair care product recommendation for damaged hair:
REDKEN EXTREME SHAMPOO R210
REDKEN EXTREME CONDITIONER R242
MATRIX BIOLAGE FORTIFY SHAMPOO R130
MATRIX BIOLAGE FORTIFY CONDITIONER R165
MATRIX BIOLAGE THERMO-ACTIVE REPAIR TREATMENT (leave in treatment that needs the iron to activate) R180
L’OREAL PROFFESIONEL ABSOLUTE REPAIR SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER
Good luck!
