The treatments you need to ask your hairdresser for to care for all your hair’s needs this winter


Winter haircare can be a tricky one to crack. The freezing temperatures, rain and blustery winds outdoors combined with the dry central heating can make your hair and scalp uncomfortable, flaky, rough, dry, and breakage-prone.

So combatting this extra damage to our hair – especially when it already has so much to contend with, isn’t something we can do alone.

For the blonde bombshells

‘Blondes have had it tough with salons being closed and so now that they’ve been reunited with their colourists they want to go brighter, bolder and blonder,’ shared Harriet Muldoon, of Larry King Hair Salons. ‘I have been amazed at the number of clients asking for blonde services! Even my brunette clients have been asking for lighter tones – anything to make them stand out in the crowd. It’s all about making a statement. It’s going to be a real blonde moment.’

Stylists are calling it the ‘blonde renaissance’, with the revival of the colour bringing about a whole new wave of experimental and beautiful hair tones all over the world. Post-lockdown, we’re all craving change and excitement, and switching up your hair is the perfect way to do that!

For all the curly hair girls

Curls can be a handful – but when they are well-cared for and get the treatment they deserve, they are so worth the hassle! Curls are naturally drier and more porous than other hair types and it can feel like we know our curls best – so it’s hard to trust a hairdresser with them. It’s important that our hairdressers treat them with a specific kind of care that caters for thinner and more fragile hair with a higher risk of breakage. The spiral shape can prevent the products we use from diffusing equally from root to tips, meaning that all the hard work that goes into caring for your hair, may not actually be making as much of a difference as you want it to.

Hairdressers are really interested in being able to offer support for all hair types, it’s just that many of them are intimidated by the level of skill required. But Kérastase provides them with all the knowledge, skills and products they need to take care of all types of curls and coils.

Kératase analysed all types of curls in 23 countries including Brazil, the US, the UK and France, to fully understand what makes curls challenging. They found that lack of moisture, achieving long-lasting curl definition and products that are too heavy can be major challengers to curl hair care.

So they created formulas that provide intense care without compromise in treatments where science meets luxury with fine ingredients that nourish and strengthen curls without disrupting their beauty.

The curl game-changing formula:

Defining glycerin: a moisturizing, emollient and protective agent that helps hydrate and distribute care from roots to tips for perfect definition. The Curl Manifesto Masque Beurre Haute Nutrition is infused with glycerin for not only extra nourishment to soften brittle curls, but also intense hydration to increase elasticity, helping them spring into shape!

Cementing ceramide: Biomimetic ceramide mimics hair’s cement deep inside the cortex. Curly hair enjoys improved strength, elasticity and suppleness, as well as protection from environmental stressors.

Hydrating manuka honey: a natural nutrient powerhouse rich in micronutrients that draw vital moisture, restoring the hair’s natural body for full, glossy curls. The Curl Manifesto Gelée Curl ContourCurl enhancing defining gel-cream is infused with Manuka honey and Ceramide, combining the hydration properties of a cream and the hold of a gel. Amplifying a curl's natural shape with softness, definition and no crunch has never been easier and curls are left bouncy and intensely shiny!
