Get haircuts on a regular basis
Regular haircuts will help keep your hair strong and healthy. Long hair should be trimmed at least every 8 to 12 weeks. If you notice more breakage or split ends, it could be cut as frequently as every 6 to 8 weeks. Be specific with your hair stylist when you're getting your haircut.

What is anti- diversion?
MYTH: IF YOU HAVE GREASY HAIR, SKIP CONDITIONER
Reality: A big fat false. “Greasy hair is not caused by conditioning your hair, instead it is naturally caused by too much sebum being produced from the tissues of the scalp,” explains Day. “For greasy hair, use a clarifying shampoo and only use conditioner on your ends,” recommends Kim Vo.
Keep in mind, conditioner is meant your your mid-lengths and ends, NOT your scalp
MYTH: YOU CAN FIX SPLIT ENDS WITH THE RIGHT PRODUCTS
Reality: The only way to stop and remove split ends it a haircut. Using the proper products can help mend and seal ends keeping them from splitting and breaking further.
MYTH: DIRTY HAIR STYLES BETTER
Reality: This is one that’s come from a little bit of truth that’s been blown out of all propotion. Hair that hasn’t been washed for more than 2 days is usually getting pretty oily, especially if in those 2 days you’ve gone out to a party, done a bit of work, hit the gym and gotten a little sweaty, or basically lived your life outside of a bubble. Oil is heavy, it weighs down hair. Heavy hair weighs down curls. Espically for fine hair.
Its best to wash the night before and make sure its dry when you come in. If you HAVE to wash it in the morning, that’s totally fine, just make sure its dry when you come in to avoid extra charges when up-styling. We have products that can add the texture we need to get a good style going.
MYTH: "PROFESSIONAL PRODUCTS DON'T DO ANYTHING FOR MY HAIR, IT FEELS THE SAME... OR WORSE"
This is quite common, but also not true. They might not feel like they are doing anything instantly, but quite a lot of professional products work over a longer period of time. Especially if it’s a repairing product.
Quite often our products work from the inside of the hair. This is a lot of the difference between professional and supermarket products, which mainly work cosmetically, meaning they work on making the outside of the hair look good instantly (with heavy oils and silicone's) but aren’t doing anything long term.
It’s like painting a rotting house…its still going to crumble down underneath the shiny paint.
