Hearing all about hair products can be confusing, a lot of options, a lot of conflicting messages, hell even a lot of questions, what's right for my hair?, what am i getting for my money?
We hear you!. Our mentality at G&E is not one of pressure, we simply advise to ensure we can do all we need to do to your hair and what you want us to do!. Picking the right time when to add protein, when to add moisture is always the trickiest. We believe in alternating the products you need based on circumstances. The weather, the style, the demands your hair is giving you day to day. For example when the atmosphere around your hair is dry, like in the summer, do you get hydration based haircare, do you get protein based hair care and hydration based styling products? am I sat in air conditioned rooms for most of the day?, yes even that affects the manageability of your hair and what you need to style your hair!.
All our consultations take these factors into consideration resulting in us designing a
haircare system with a number of products advised for you to manage your hair.
The absolute must is a hair oil. this has seen our industry evolve massively in past decade with emergence of how oil is absorbed in by our hair.
