Begin your detox by getting rid of all dirt and impurities with a deep cleansing and moisturising shampoo. Remember when you are shampooing to later and rinse your hair twice, and thoroughly work the shampoo in to your scalp before rinsing. Follow with an intense conditioner, key ingredients such as honey and argan oil will help smooth and restore your hair.

If you style your hair regularly, try avoiding heated styling for 7 days. Leave your hair to dry naturally and step away from the tongs and straighteners, giving your hair a little break from heat. Once your “Heat Free Week” is complete, add heat protection sprays in your styling routine to protect your hair from intense styling heat.

Overnight Treatments and masks

During your week detox, try and squeeze in 3 overnight deep conditioning nightly treatments to restore your hair. Many top brands have a range of overnight treatments catering for all hair types. Comb the treatment thoroughly though your hair, tie in a bun, and get a good night’s sleep – waking up with fabulous restored hair.

Hair Extensions

If you regularly wear hair extensions, removing them for a short period of time will help your hair recover. Whilst you are avoiding wearing your hair extensions, this is the perfect time to also restore your hair extensions.
