Damaged hair

Damaged hair ....what to do ?


This picture client had a bad chemical straightening done elsewhere. Solution, go darker and blend the broken layers using PCC
This would require several more visits about a month apart. Pics shown are one appt


It depends. We receive a lot of enquiries about fixing someones damaged hair. But first we need to clarify what is being referred to as “damaged”

Read on for more info re types and for solutions follow the link below

Three main types we hear
1. Bad condition due to lack of care and styling without protection
2. Split ends
3. Chemical damage from other hair services


This before and after was a journey to go from left to right. But with PCC all the way. Over a year later hair is back and lots of colour changes along the way
We have every step of this journey over last 18 months on file to view


No 1. is the most common. Using hot tools and hairdryers with no thermal protection. Thinking a $1.99 generic shampoo will do the trick.

No 2. Comes in next. Now you do not see this with people that regularly maintain their hair, and yes cut it. The longer a hair strand goes without cutting the more fragile the hairs fibres ends become. Then they split.
So avoiding that 6 weekly cut to add 6 inches does not actually work. By the time you get that 6 inches you need 8 cut off... splits travel.

No 3. The hair fibre has been pushed too far. The process has caused the disulfide bonds to seperate. Completely and its too far gone. Partially and there is hope.


This before and after same day and damage just because was not looked after in between visits. Here we did full head foils with PCC . Check out the result and condition

But all is NOT lost.
YOUR remedies

Depending in your hair condition and budget we have options. .... for more detailed information on our solutions just follow the link below

Firstly NOTHING will fix split ends. They have to be cut off and if not. You’ll never get rid of them.
But we do have solutions via services like Olaplex + LaBiosthetique PCC which can minimise splits by maintaining a healthier stronger hair strand.

These services will help with the other types of damage though. How long to fix and what ? All depends on what needs fixing.


Pictures show on left a bad perm, not by us. Our solution done at one appointment was a colour with PCC. The colour evens out the hair tones while PCC protects and repairs


Some things to remember.
These fixes are in salon services. NO Olaplex No 3 is not what we use in salon (refer to link for more info)

Most of the above problems can be avoided by using the right products in the first place when styling or colouring your hair. .... utilising services like Olaplex and PCC to enhance the hair is a great preventive to damaged hair

Re services at different price points.
Let us use this example.
Few years back a lady came to us with waist length hair she and a friend bleached at home. It was now a nice yellow tone (even though)
There was breakage all through the hair and some strands were like rubber bands.
She wanted us to now get it to white blonde. But we would ONLY cut the splits off and do a PCC repair service.
We know this would of stopped the breakage in its tracks. But the question was asked re PCC price and they did not want to pay that.
She left.
We know that within a week all that hair would of snapped off from the waist to the shoulder. BUT we also know we could of stopped that.


Picture shown is just bad condition hair. We literally just used a PCC and blow dry
