solace hair care tips

We know a healthy, physically fit body needs regular exercise, a balanced mind requires mindfulness/meditation; both requiring discipline to achieve our highest potential… this is just like our hair. Not all of us are gifted with healthy, strong hair, and have to pay attention to the little extras to maintain our mane!

Have you always dreamt of having luscious locks all your life…

We feel it’s not just doing one thing perfectly everyday but a consistency of a few things, so we have put together a list of ‘hot tips’ on how to gain control and get that healthy hair you’ve always wanted!

1. Book an appointment with your hairstylist

Although some people cringe at the idea of cutting their hair, this is actually one of the best steps you can take in maintaining the health of your hair! Book a trim, consult with your hairdresser as to what home-care shampoo, conditioner and treatments are best for your hair type and make a plan. Getting regular trims and weekly at home/ or monthly in-salon treatments will help to improve both the look and feel of your hair.

2. Cold Water Rinse

A cool hair rinse, this is one of the easiest ways to boost hair-growth! Before you jump out of the shower give your hair a quick rinse with cooler water (focus on mid-lengths/ends-not scalp) not only will it remove excess product without stripping away all the moisturising ingredients, it will close down the cuticle cells. This has two benefits; it locks those nutrients from your shampoo and conditioner and water inside the hair strand, and when the cuticle layer is closed, the cells lay more smoothly, which makes light reflect better off the hair, more reflection equals more shine!

3. Silky Smooth Pillowcase

Sleeping on a satin pillowcase enables your hair to move freely. This diminishes tangling and knotting. Sleeping on luxury silk pillowcases will help keep that bed-hair under control.

The natural properties of satin, including its smooth surface, can help reduce friction on your hair which often causes damage whilst sleeping. For your hair, it truly does pay to sleep on a satin pillowcase! Next time you’re in at Solace ask us about the satin pillow cases we stock!

4. Its all in the brush

How we brush our hair is probably one of the most crutial elements when it comes to protecting our hair from breakage. Some may say we’re biased but the Aveda Wooden Paddle brush not only features extended bristles for easy detangling it reduces stress to hair and scalp during blow-drying and styling.

Paddle Hot Tip: Brush vertically to detangle and brush horizontally too smooth! – Make sure you start at the ends and work your way up!

5. Its all about the Invati!

We cannot order enough of this three step system, Invati Advanced is one of our top sellers and there are many reasons why this turmeric based trio fly off the shelves. Whilst the Shampoo exfoliates your scalp with a creamy plant-derived blend, the conditioner thickens then the Scalp Revitalizer’s innovative blend of tangerine peel and Japanese knotweed penetrates to help support hair’s natural keratin! This beautiful trio will have your hair not only thickening up, a healthier scalp and longer, luscious hair!

6. Get that hair to BHAVE with a keratin Bhave Treatment.

Go beyond the surface with the only salon system that rebuilds broken hair bonds!

Olaplex is somewhat of an enigma; its become a household name among salon-goers, but for such a well-known range, very few people understand what it actually does and why it is used by so many hair professionals. Keep reading below to find out more of why Solace so highly recommends Olaplex to all our guests!


Real Science. Real Results.


No.1 Bond Multiplier 

Beginning the rebuilding 

This concentrated first salon step rebuilds broken disulfide bonds and begins the process of preventing damage and repairing hair! We drizzle some of this golden goodness into your colour or use it as a stand alone treatment!


No.2 Bond Perfector

Pursuing hair perfection

Our second salon step is to rebuild and restore any remaining broken bonds ensuring the strongest, shiniest and healthiest hair possible! 


No.3 Hair Perfector 

Repair, protect and strengthen 

No.3 is not a conditioner, it is an at-home treatment that reduces breakage and viably strengthens hair, improving its look and feel!

No.3 Extra info…Apply No.3 to dry hair leave for 10-90 mins (depending on hair condition)

The results you will experience post-Olaplex can be varied, but one common misconception is that it will leave your hair silky-soft like never before. Although Olaplex is sure to soften the hair a little, it might not be as soft as you would have expected, as it is not a hair mask or deep conditioner. Remember, Olaplex works from the inside out to repair broken hair bonds. What you should notice is that your hair is a little more manageable, and also that breakage is less obvious up-close. You might also reap some added benefits, like a burst of gorgeous shine!

It is recommended you use Olaplex No. 3 no more frequently than once a week, but you can also use it less frequently based on your needs.

The results experienced from Olaplex are permanent, so the reconnected hair bonds won’t break on their own. However, the daily elements of your haircare routine can create damage and thus re-break the repaired bonds. These processes include styling with heated tools, over-brushing and colouring the hair. To help restore once again, simply grab out your trusty Olaplex No. 3 again and repeat the process!!
