This Is How To Achieve Your Healthiest Hair Ever

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have your healthiest hair ever?

At Enigma, our top priority is the health of your mane. From start to finish the salon ensures every measure is taken to create a look that you not only LOVE but also protect the integrity, strength, shine and overall condition of your locks.

While some salons will encourage you to foil back to back, our highly trained stylists give honest, achievable and professional recommendations towards realistic and healthy hair goals. It’s really important to us to not over-promise on looks that will result in damage and take months to repair. 

Follow these top tips from Kate Brown the director of Enigma Hair + Body and be on your way to your healthiest hair ever.

Olaplex if your best friend

We’ve said it before, and we will say it again - Olaplex is your hair's best friend. More than a buzzword, there is a reason that all professionals will recommend you include Olaplex in your hair routine. 

The thing that makes Olaplex so great is the primary active ingredient “bis-aminopropyl diglycol dimaleate” - let us break that down for you. This active ingredient is pretty darn clever and can actually repair the bonds of your hair that have been damaged during the lightning process. 

However, it’s not just for bleaching. The bonds of our hair can also be damaged from using hot tools like straighteners, blowdryers and from perming which makes it a perfect conditioning treatment for all.

You can add on an Olaplex treatment or purchase the take-home products at Enigma.

Trim, trim baby

To ensure healthy hair, a trim every 6 weeks to dust off any split ends is key. And no, this isn’t just an excuse for us hairdressers to catch up with you - even though we love to do that too! What it does is it removes the open ends of the hair preventing tearing up through a healthy hair shaft.

In-salon treatments

We have a range of in-salon treatments that you can add to your next appointment starting from as little as $15. These treatments don’t just smell good and feel nice they are really important in sealing each individual hair strand and hydrating your locks. We use both Olaplex and Kevin Murphy treatments. 

Ask us which treatment is right for you at your next hair appointment.

Gloss Toners

Gloss and clear toners are a step above any hair treatment you can do. They are super hydrating and conditioning and applied at the basin in the salon and left on for around 15 minutes. The gloss toner will seal down the cuticle and creates maximum shine. 

We recommend keeping your hair healthy and colour shiny and book in for a gloss toner between bleaching appointments. Especially if you have a big event or birthday before your next colour and want to be feeling super fresh!

Heat Protection

Last but definitely not least, the most important thing you can do - you can do it at home. And, that is using a heat protector. The Kevin Murphy heated defence offers maximum protection to ensure your locks are never compromised. Using heat without a protector makes colour fade super fast. If you think about it, some of our irons can heat up to 230 degrees and we bake cakes at that temperature. Burning hair is simply breaking hair - don’t throw away all the hard work and money spent at the salon by not using a heat protector at home.
