Hair trends

Bored with your look? This spring summer’s look is bob’s and ponytails.


Tired of your long locks? Why not give yourself a new style. Were talking bobs. They are a huge trend this season, especially as celebrity’s like Cheryl Fernández setting the bob trend . You can wear a bob so many different ways straight,  curly, sleek & sharp. photoIt works on all textures the style is flattering. Its easy to maintain and so feminine. We would recommend getting it cut 4-6 weeks, but if your willing to wear the lob (long bob) every 8-12 weeks.the thing about the bob/lob it grows out looking good,  pretty and hassle free.


Simple ponytails are on trend this season to low ponytails and high ponytails.  imageIt’s a quick, easy and effortless way of styling.  The best part about a ponytail is that there is one for every hair type.  If you have straight hair opt for a high ponytail to give an elegant look or a low ponytail plaited to the side for a day time, festival look. imageIf you have wavy hair, keep it natural, curls or waves look soft for any ponytail you want to achieve.


Scalp Clinic: Dry itchy scalp? maybe an oily scalp?

Hey guys, following our last blog post, today we are here to talk about the more common scalp  problems and ones we see a lot of our clients struggling with in the salon.

To start with the most common of them all (that we see in the salon) Dry itchy scalp or Dandruff. But just like in the last blog thanks to Alfaparfs Semi Di Lino range we have found a product we believe works, and one we would recommend to our clients with this problem. It is the Purifying Shampoo, this contains pomegranate which reduces the itching, it does this by removing any excess particles on the scalp and then helps to restore the scalps natural balance of oils.  As we said in the previous blog all  products in the Semi Di Lino range are natural. However, the only thing about this product that is its only flaw is that it can not be used the same day you get your colour done! This is due to the purifying aspect of the shampoo. And like all these products to see the best results a full bottle will need to be used and when showering leave on the scalp for a minute or two.

Don’t worry those of you who have an oily scalp, there is something for you too! And of course its from Alfaparfs Semi Di Lino range, it just shows how much we love these products.  For those of you with an oily scalp there is the Balancing Shampoo. This has an extract of the Buchu plant, this is used a lot in alternative medicine. What the Buchu plant does is it  calms the sebaceous gland ( where the oil in our scalp is released). The  sebaceous gland is more than likely to be over stimulant especially after if you give your scalp a “nice” scrub in the shower, which actually causes more oil to be released. So by using the Balancing shampoo and a calming massage to the scalp in the shower you will calm the sebaceous gland causing less oil to be secreted.Again to see the best results from this product leave it  on the scalp for a minute or two before rinsing just to make sure your are giving it enough time to get to work.

But lets not forget the best thing about these products and one thing we know you will love is that they are very affordable for such amazing products being priced at only 13.50 euro. We know shocking for professional products but hey, we’re not complaining.  

Scalp Clinic! Thinning or Fine hair?
