Hair Rescue! 

Tuesday, 10 January 2006


Joanne Thompson's hair is out of condition from too much GHD-ing and using the wrong products. Michael Leong is going to give her a great new Spring 2006 style to reinvigorate her lank locks.

Most of us are plagued by split/ dry ends and generally out of condition hair after the over-styling of the Christmas party season.  Spring is the perfect time to get a good cut to get rid of all that damage with the added bonus of a new look for the New Year.

Top Tips

Michael says that there are many treatments on the market that you can use at home from hair masks to hot oil treatments from your favourite range to re-hydrate a thirsty bounce!
. If your hair is dry Michael also recommends using a shampoo low in detergent ie; a conditioning shampoo.
. A good home remedy is an egg beaten into a mug of skimmed milk, rubbed onto the scalp and left for 5 minutes.  This should be done twice weekly.
. Michael suggests a deep cleansing shampoo to get rid of a lot of product build-up.
. According to Michael the most important thing to do at this time of the year is to get a good cut.
