January detox: how to hit 'refresh' on your skin and hair health

Imagine what you could achieve in 2022 if you started the year feeling like the very best version of yourself. We're here to guide you through a complete January detox, from full-on salon treatments in super safe environments to DIY home care essentials. Wave farewell to common new year issues, like hair fall, skin dullness, scalp itching, and colour fade! New year health boost, here we come…

Why your body loves a January detox

Think back on the last few months, and it'll be easy to see why a January detox is so beneficial. Science shows us that hair and skin quality are directly related to how much sleep you get, how nutritious your diet is, and how well you manage stress in your daily life. After the whirlwind festive party season, it's not surprising that January clients come to us feeling lacklustre!

A detox can help reset your skin and hair by clearing out impurities, repairing damage, and restoring nutrients. It's the perfect way to get a fresh start for the year ahead. As well as salon treatments and home care rituals, you can support your detox by adding more nutrients and quality sleep into your lifestyle.

Boost your immune system with a healthy hit of Vitamins A, C, and K, by adding more cruciferous vegetables into your diet. Although your liver already does a great job of detoxing your body, drinks like milk thistle and dandelion root can really help things along. You can also improve your skin and hair by looking after your gut health, too!

Kickstart your self care in the salon

The first step to a thorough cleanse and replenishment is a professional salon treatment. Because they're more intensive than home care treatments, you'll benefit from a deeper clean and more noticeable results.

Begin with a bespoke backwash

Visit us and enjoy a salon hair wash tailored to your unique needs. We'll create a protocol from a library of over 30 luxury brands, including Shu Uemura, Iles Formula, Kérastase, and Davines. This unique service is designed to nourish and repair your hair and scalp, so finished styles look incredible and last longer.

The bespoke backwash is a nice, easy way to detox your hair this January. All you need to do is book an appointment, and we'll take care of the rest as part of your service! You can even request special restorative treatments. 

Here's a small sample of detox treatments on offer at the backwash:

Metal Detox for coloured hair

Neutralise heavy metal build-up caused by tap water before your colour service to ensure more vibrant, true colour results. You can also buy the shampoo and masque to use at home, too!

'Hair Botox' to undo frazzle and frizz

Signature Smooth

Not to be confused with keratin treatments (which add keratin bonds to the follicles), Signature Smooth is a bonding treatment. It fills gaps in porous and over-processed hair follicles using amino acids and a signature nano formula. It creates a new skeletal structure on your cuticle to leave it straighter, smoother, and stronger.


Go organic with your colour

Repeated colour services can take their toll on your hair. Swap to our ammonia-free, semi-permanent colours and give your hair a bit of a break. Our organic colour systems are low in PPDs and give hair a softer, more translucent colour. They're great if you suffer from colour-related sensitivity, as they're nice and gentle while still giving a colour kick.
