insider HAIR TRICK

IF YOU'VE GOT LITTLE ANNOYING HAIRS STICKING UP, 
they’re probably just new hairs growing, baby hairs. 
Flatten them with some lotion, gel or hairspray. If you blow-dry, aim your hairdryer downwards to help stray stands lay low. 
If you colour or bleach your hair, they may be broken hairs in which case you should starting nourishing your hair with a regular conditioning treatment!
{Mana stocks a whole range of conditioning treatments including Davines & Kevin.Murphy!}

hair inspiration: PLATINUM PIXIE

PERFECT FOR SUMMER AND THE HOLIDAY SEASON...
this platinum pixie mixed just the right cocktail of edge and sophistication. 

Before you take the plunge on a super short crop, consider your face shape, hair texture and personality: A pixie works best for someone with hair that’s both straight and fine. If your hair is more unruly, you might want to go a bit longer with a sexy shag or a bob. When your locks are short, work the rest of your features like Ashlee Simpson does, show off your shoulders and décolleté and finish off your look with sultry eye makeup and dangly earrings.

the slick PONYTAIL

A HIGH PONYTAIL NEVER GOES OUT OF STYLE FOR SUMMER
- especially if you keep it super-slick... 

 To ensure that frizz and flyaways aren't going to ruin your look, work a pea-size drop of smoothing lotion into your roots and hairline before blow-drying. Brush the hair back and secure it just below your crown. To make your ponytail gleam, rub a drop of shine serum between your palms, them run them over the tail from base to ends. 

+ If you're at the beach for the day, you can add a dollop of leave-in conditioner instead of the smoothing lotion to condition and protect your hair! 

 PS. This style works even better if your hair is a bit dirty!

damage CONTROL

SUN EXPOSURE CAN DRY OUT YOUR HAIR, ESPECIALLY IF IT'S CHEMICALLY TREATED... 
Make sure you invest in a great shampoo and conditioner with UV-filters to protect the hair from becoming brittle and keep the colour intense. When heading to the beach or spending any time in the sun, spray your freshly shampooed hair with a lightweight leave-in conditioner that contains UV-filters. Slick into a ponytail with a low side part and you’ll not only look sexy and fresh, you’ll be protecting your hair from colour fade and UV rays.
You could also make an appointment to have an intense conditioning treatment @ Mana!

tress STRESS

ONE OF THE MAJOR CAUSES OF BAD HAIR CONDITION IS STRESS...
it can upset the balance of the skin’s secretions on the scalp 
and lead to dandruff. 

Try taking anti-depressant herbs such as Valerian and St John’s Wort to improve the state of your hair, and your mood. Oats are said to soothe the nervous system, so it’s a good idea to start your day with a bowl of porridge. 

In fact, breakfast is most important meal of the day for your hair. The energy levels in your follicles are at their lowest first thing in the morning, and you need energy to make hair protein cells. This is why it’s not to good to go too long between meals. If you have breakfast at 8am, your follicles will by hungry by midday
 ~ so don't forget to eat lunch!

THE LONGER BOB ~ OR THE 'LOB' IS A MAJOR TREND AT THE MOMENT & {EVEN BETTER} IT''S FLATTERING ON JUST ABOUT EVERYONE...
And it's easy to style: Prep damp hair with a silicone serum before blow-drying to work out any kinks. If your hair is thick or unruly, add a drop of hair oil to your conditioner and smooth over with a flat iron for that high wattage shine.
