Q:I love changing my style all the time, whether it be with tongs, irons or heated rollers. I’ve noticed lately that my hair seems to be breaking more and more. What can you recommend to keep my hair strong so I can keep using these things to style my hair!?

A:We recommend Kerastase’ Ciment Thermique which forms one step of the Kerastase three Step regime; Cleanse, Care and Perfect. This heat protective cream should be applied to the mid-lengths and ends of the hair and massaged through to ensure that each strand is protected against high temperatures prior to heat styling. For best results, use Ciment Thermique in conjunction with Bain De Force and Ciment Anti-Usure – all of which are available from elements!

Q:I tend to go out after work but never really have time to style properly and it looks flat! what can i use thats quick and easy?

A:Redken has just released its first-ever hair powder that transforms the hair’s surface, creating a matte finish with amazing texture and fullness.  Shake it on to add incredible volume, give extra ‘grip’ to create the perfect updo, and more.  It’s your super powder that can be used to prep updos, boost volume and texturize short-dos.

Q:I like my colour bold and at the moment have got quite intense red hair. The trouble is it can fade quite quick and look dull. what can you recommend to use to keep my hair shiney looking?

A:We’d recommend Reflection Chroma Cristal which is a colour protection and shine perfecting spray that offers an ultra fine application of its active ingredients, colour is as radiant as crystal and hair fibre left ultralight.

Chroma Cristal has a high concentration of oil base, helping to protect from external aggressors and giving incredible shine. A watery base also allows active ingredients to penetrate deeper into hair fibre
