Understanding Your Hair Type

Before diving into specific hair care tips, it's important to understand your hair type. Are you dealing with dry, damaged, coloured, oily, or normal hair? Or perhaps you're in a tizzy over hair loss? Identifying your hair type will help you tailor your hair care routine to address your specific needs. So, grab a mirror and get to know those locks! 

Tips for Healthy Hair 

  • Hydration is key: Regardless of your hair type, keeping your hair well-hydrated is essential for maintaining its health and vitality. Look for moisturising ingredients like avocado oil and olive oil to keep hair happy and hydrated. 
  • Protect your hair from heat : Heat styling tools can wreak havoc on your hair, causing dryness, breakage and split ends. Whenever possible, use heat protectant products and opt for low-heat styling tools to minimise damage.
  • Eat Your Way to Gorgeous Hair: Healthy hair starts from within, so be sure to nourish your body with a balanced diet rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Foods like salmon, eggs, nuts and leafy greens can help promote strong, shiny hair🥬 🥦.
  • Treat your scalp: Treat your scalp to some TLC with scalp massages to stimulate circulation and promote hair growth - this can also be achieved by using a scalp scrub which also gets rid of any oil or product buildup. It's like a spa day for your scalp!
  • Trim regularly: Regular trims are essential for keeping your hair looking its best, especially if you're dealing with split ends or breakage. Aim to trim your hair every 6-8 weeks to prevent damage from traveling up the hair shaft.


How to Look After Your Hair Type 

How to care for Dry hair

Dry hair can be prone to frizz, breakage and dullness, but with the right care and attention, you can restore moisture and vitality to your locks.

Moisture, Moisture, Moisture. Look for shampoo and conditioner specifically formulated for dry or damaged hair. These products are designed to replenish moisture and nourish your hair from root to tip. opt for moisturising products like our Artichoke & Broccoli range, which is formulated to hydrate and nourish dry, thirsty strands. 

Limit Washing. Washing your hair too frequently can strip away its natural oils, leading to even drier locks. Aim to wash your hair no more than 2-3 times per week and use lukewarm water instead of hot water.

Treat your hair to a deep conditioning treatment once or twice a week to help restore moisture and hydration.

Handle with Care. Be Gentle When Styling, dry hair is more prone to breakage, so it's important to be gentle when styling to avoid further damage.

How to care for Damaged hair

Protective Hairstyles. Ditch the tight hairstyles that tug on your hair and opt for loose, gentle styles like braids or buns to minimise stress on the hair shaft.

Avoid Overprocessing. Chemical treatments like hair dye, bleach and perms can weaken the hair shaft and contribute to further damage. If possible, give your hair a break from these treatments and opt for more natural alternatives.

Repair and strengthen damaged hair with our Avocado & Olive range, which is enriched with nourishing avocado oil and olive oil to help restore vitality and shine. 

How to care for Coloured hair

Use Colour-Safe Products. opt for shampoos and conditioners specifically formulated for coloured hair. Look for products labelled "colour-safe," "colour-protect" as they are gentle and help preserve the colour for longer- our Water Lily & Amaranth range, which is specially formulated to protect and prolong the vibrancy of coloured hair.

Wash with Cool Water. Hot water opens the hair cuticle and can cause colour to fade more quickly. Rinse your hair with cool or lukewarm water instead of hot water to help seal the cuticle and preserve the colour.

Touch Up Roots. To maintain a fresh and uniform colour, touch up your roots regularly to cover any regrowth. You can use root touch-up kits or visit a salon for professional colour maintenance. 

How to care for Oily hair

Focus on the Scalp. When shampooing, pay close attention to the scalp area where oil tends to accumulate. Gently massage the shampoo into the scalp using your fingertips to help loosen dirt, oil and product residue.

Rinse Thoroughly. Proper rinsing is crucial to ensure all shampoo and conditioner residue is removed from the hair and scalp. Thoroughly rinse your hair with lukewarm water until it feels clean and squeaky.

Use a Gentle Shampoo. Choose a clarifying shampoo specifically formulated for oily hair. These shampoos help to remove excess oil and buildup without stripping the scalp of its natural oils, which can lead to overproduction of sebum. Try the Fig & Rosehip range, which helps to balance oil production and leave your hair feeling clean and refreshed.

How to care for Normal hair

While it's essential to keep your hair clean, over washing can strip away natural oils and lead to dryness. Aim to wash your hair every other day or as needed to maintain its cleanliness without over-drying.

Choose a Mild Shampoo: opt for a gentle shampoo that cleanses the hair without stripping away its natural oils. Look for shampoos specifically formulated for normal hair to ensure a balanced clean.

Maintain the health and balance of normal hair with our Banana & Jasmine range, which gently cleanses and moisturises without weighing hair down.

How to care for Hair loss

Hair loss can be caused by various factors, including genetics, hormonal changes, medical conditions and lifestyle factors. Consult with a healthcare professional or dermatologist to determine the underlying cause of your hair loss and develop an appropriate treatment plan.

Manage Stress: Stress can contribute to hair loss, so it's essential to find healthy ways to manage stress and promote relaxation. 

Use targeted hair care, Algae & Lemongrass range combats hair loss and promote healthy hair growth, it’s formulated to strengthen hair follicles and stimulate circulation to the scalp.

Seek Professional Help: If you're experiencing significant or prolonged hair loss, consult with a dermatologist or hair loss specialist for personalised advice and treatment options.


Achieving healthy, beautiful hair is possible for everyone, regardless of hair type. By following these healthy hair hacks and tailoring your hair care routine to your specific needs, you can enjoy strong, shiny locks that look and feel their best.
