Say hello to our most effective ever three step treatment for fine, stripped, damaged hair.

Say hello to our most effective ever three step treatment for fine, stripped, damaged hair.

Since 2001 Hairfix’s renowned Three Step Detox Recovery Regime has given thousands of happy customers younger-looking, healthier feeling hair. Now we’re delighted to introduce our next generation Three Step Keratin-Bonding Treatment.

Here at Hairfix, we’re constantly listening to your feedback and looking at the world around us, at new ingredients, technologies and developments that will enable us to bring you the best possible products.

With busy lifestyles, air pollution and the intensity of styling products and haircare regimes in mind, we've developed new Hairfix Three Step Keratin-Bonding Treatment, a state-of-the-art detox and recovery regime for ageing, damaged, over-processed hair.
 

Why detox your hair?

Just as you remove your make up and cleanse your skin before applying moisturiser, you should do the same with your hair. Detoxing just once a week will rid your hair of pollutants and the invisible build up caused by conditioning and styling products and make it more receptive to repairing, moisturising products.

What's new?

Hairfix Three Step Keratin Bonding Treatment is the only keratin system that gently removes build-up without using detergents that strip the hair. Plus, our unique vegetable keratin compound of wheat, soy and corn has a molecular weight that bonds more to damaged, fine and frizzy hair, making it smoother and stronger. Hairfix Three Step Keratin Bonding Treatment is also quick, easy and convenient to use.

Step 1 Purify is a detergent-free spray that gives your hair a fast and thorough detox
Spray Purify weekly onto dry hair, comb it through and leave for a minute or two before rinsing away the pollution and product build up that regular detergents remove by stripping your hair’s keratin. Purify is detergent-free and works its way between the build up and your hair, releasing it and washing it away.
Step 2 Reform is a highly effective keratin bonding cleanser to repair, elasticise and give your hair volume.  
Reform cleanses and fills any gaps in your hair’s keratin by depositing cysteine (the most abundant amino acid found in keratin) into those voids, leaving it hair smoother and stronger. You simply apply, lather and rinse.
Step 3 Enrich conditioner gives hair a long lasting, deep protective shine.  
Enrich adds a silken protective layer to your hair that will give you younger-looking, shinier and healthier feeling hair for the week ahead.

Who should use Hairfix Three Step Keratin-Bonding Treatment? 

Simon Bryer, International Artistic Director says... 
“Everyone! Think about how youthful and healthy your skin looks after a cleansing, moisturising treatment, then think of your hair as being just like your skin – both will always benefit from a deep cleanse, repair and moisturise. If you’re a heavy user of styling products, you colour or heat treat your hair or it’s generally dull, you’ll benefit from a weekly treatment. If your hair’s already in good condition, a fortnightly treatment should be enough to keep it that way.
This is a must-have product for anyone who wants to protect their hair from environmental pollutants and product residue and give it a fabulous youthful boost.”

Reviewers say... 
"I just love this new three step treatment - it really leaves my hair silkier, brighter and feeling (and looking) so much nicer... My hair's highlighted, frizzy, curly and greying and this makes it more manageable. Thank you, Hairfix!"

What’s All The Hype About Hyaluronic?

What’s All The Hype About Hyaluronic?

If you’re wondering just what Hyaluronic Acid is and why it’s making waves in the hair and beauty industry, you’re not alone. We take a closer look at this super-ingredient and explain why you’ll find it in Hairfix Follicle Max Advance and Hairfix Follicle + Anti-Age.

Acid? That sounds like something that your chemistry teacher told you to steer clear of at school and certainly not to put on your on your skin or in your hair, doesn’t it? Not so Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is not your typical ‘stripping’ acid, occurs naturally in our bodies and – here’s the best bit - is renowned for its anti-ageing properties.

HA is essentially a gel-like water holding molecule (fun fact: one gram of HA can hold up to six litres of water) that helps maintain moisture levels in our cells. So, why do we need to use it if it’s already present and correct? Well, sadly, a number of factors such as the pesky ageing process and some environmental aggressors, like UV, can impact our HA levels.

Fortunately, HA can be applied topically to skin to help hydration and moisture retention. So, if HA hydrates skin, reduces signs of ageing and helps minimise the symptoms sun damage, sensitivity and other complaints, then can it logically help you find your way to better hair and scalp health?
 

The answer is yes!

The addition of HA - in the form of Nucleo Trico-Hyal - to Hairfix Follicle Max Advance stimulates hair growth, improves cellular integrity and reconstructs the structure of hair. We’re talking hair with visibly improved density, fullness and softness and improved scalp condition, too.

Nucleo Trico-Hyal was specifically developed for hair; it ensures the gradual release of the active ingredients that penetrate the hair bulb, prolonging the action of Follicle Max Advance over time, and it has anti-oxidant and detoxifying properties, too.

The slow release formula of Follicle Max Advance means you only need to use it two to three times a week, making it great value as well as an effective weapon in the fight against those thinning, lacklustre locks that can make us look older than our years and dent our hair confidence.

If you’re ready to kick start the fight against ageing, thinning hair at the hairline, parting or corwn, Follicle Max Advance is what you need.

Follicle + Anti_Age is perfect if you're concerned about general thinning and/or maintaining healthy growth and scalp condition.

Beautifully Silky Hair for Less - Save £8 in August

Beautifully Silky Hair for Less - Save £8 in August

If this summer's glorious sunshine has left your hair feeling a little the worse for wear - perhaps dry, brittle and more like straw than silk - fear not, for we have just the thing to rescue it, and a dazzling offer that will save you £8, too.

The heat of the summer warms the soul but interferes with your hair's natural structure, damaging cuticles and making it look dull and feel brittle. Chlorine and saltwater can also kill colour, dry your hair out and cause split ends.

If any of this sounds familiar to you, we recommend using 
Hairfix Silk + Reconditioning Masque. It's a superb rescue remedy for post-holiday hair that's feeling less than lovely and its 100ml size also makes it the perfect travel companion, offering UV protection and that extra moisture that summer hair needs.

To save £8:00, simply add Silk + to your cart and use the code SILKPLUS at the checkout before the offer expires on 31 August 2018.

HERE ARE THREE WAYS TO MAINTAIN AND RESTORE SUPER SILKY LOCKS WITH SILK +

If your hair's generally feeling dry & brittle

 Apply Silk + to dry, unwashed hair before bedtime, comb through – concentrating on the very ends where damage is greatest - and shampoo out next morning, conditioning as normal or apply before shampooing, comb through and leave for two minutes, then shampoo and condition as usual.

Before you head out into the sunshine

 Distribute several pumps worth of Hairfix Silk+ through dry or damp hair and comb through. The sun’s rays help to activate the silk protein and keratin in this deep moisturising treatment, ensuring silky softness. Silk + also protects hair from UV and helps reduce sun damage.

Before & after swimming 
Thoroughly drench your hair in fresh water. This will dilute the effects of the salt or pool chemicals so that they cause less damage to your locks.  Rinse your hair again after swimming and re-apply Hairfix Silk + as many times as necessary during the day.

Simon says... 
"Split ends will travel if you don't have them trimmed. A visit to your stylist and just half an inch - about a month's growth - off the length will make all the difference to how your hair looks and feels.

Customers say... 
"AMAZING. Applied to my dry, coloured hair for half an hour before washing and wow - soft, shiny, conditioned hair. Have used numerous brands in the past and this product is by far superior and value for money. Will definitely stick with this product."

"JUST BRILLIANT. This product is amazing. I use it 3 times a week along with the Revitaliser. My dry, frizzy, brittle, coloured hair is so much more manageable. It looks shiny and healthy now. Biosilk makes blowdrying much easier and cuts down on the use other styling products. I have already re-purchased this item and highly recommend it."

Pump up the volume this summer with help from Hairfix's game changing new concentrate

Pump up the volume this summer with help from Hairfix's game changing new concentrate

We can make your regular conditioner work harder than ever to give your hair a great volume boost!

If you’re a volume seeker with a conditioner you absolutely love, then we have just the thing for you.

It’s called Hairfix Volume Plus and it makes your regular conditioner work harder than ever to deliver a beautiful volume boost and gorgeous, smooth hair.

Hairfix Volume Plus is a keratin-rich concentrate and here's the twist ~ just add a little to the palm of your hand, mix it with your regular conditioner and then apply it to the mid lengths and ends of your hair. Leave it in for a minute then gently rinse, style as usual and enjoy improved hair volume and lots of lovely compliments! 
 

 

 

The Science Behind Hairfix Volume Plus 

To create this game-changing product, our team of experts took – and concentrated - the proteins from soy, wheat and corn to make a keratin that bonds naturally with the hair shaft to help make hair look fuller.

They also added Biotin for root lift and coconut derived gluconalactone to condition the scalp for healthy growth and hair shine.

Volume Plus is a kind, no-fuss way to create volume while you condition. Your hair will feel and look smoother and thicker with greater body and lift: see how the test hair swatch using Volume Plus (top) compares with the control swatch (bottom) using regular conditioner.

Summer's here... together with a word from Maria!

Summer's here... together with a word from Maria!

Summer seems to be here at last and it's inspired beauty writer Maria to share her haircare tips and other favourite things about the season. Enjoy!

It’s often said our hair is our crowning glory and it’s certainly safe to say that if I’m having a good hair day I feel so much better about myself and altogether more confident.

Here is what I’ve learned about hair over the years:

  • Hair needs looking after and choosing and using the right products will help your hair stay healthy for longer.
  • External elements can have an impact on your hair: the sun, the wind, the rain, the cold, and also swimming in the sea or the pool. All of these can make your hair dry and brittle but that can easily be remedied with the right conditioners or serums.
  • Regular use of haircare products has an impact, too, by building up on the hair shaft. So, varying products or using a detox treatment once a week will ensure your hair stays healthy and shiny. Using a separate shampoo and conditioner is best as combined products build up quicker.
  • Make sure you choose products that are right for your hair type and condition, i.e. dry, normal, greasy, colour treated, fine, etc. If you have just started (or stopped) colouring your hair or it’s about to be exposed to strong sunshine, for example, you’ll need to think about switching from your regular products.

My Summertime Hair Tips


The summer hols are just around the corner and if you're going abroad you’ll need to protect your hair from prolonged exposure to sun, heat and humidity. Here are my top tips:

  • Wear a hat or scarf during the day to protect your scalp and hair from UV rays or, alternatively, use a UV hair protection spray.
  • Using a leave-in conditioner helps too if you are swimming in the pool to protect hair from chlorine. Another tip is to pop under the pool shower to wet your hair before and after getting in the pool.
  • I like using sweet almond oil. In fact, I use it on my skin too, including my face. It’s natural, light, non-greasy and easily absorbed. It contains Vitamin E, Potassium and zinc - excellent for summer! 

    Summer Loving

    Speaking of summer has made me think of all the lovely food and activities I enjoy. I could live on Greek salads, and watermelon with halloumi cheese is a Cypriot favourite of mine. Fresh figs and Greek yogurt drizzled in honey, topped with walnuts - delicious!

    I love sightseeing in summer and always protect my skin from UVA/UVB using at least factor 15 here in the UK and factor 30+ abroad. You will still get a tan but you are protected from the harmful rays including UVB that burns and UVA that ages the skin.

    At home in summer the longer days mean I can go out for walks along the canal, potter around in the garden, or visit my favourite place, Broadway in the Cotswolds. If I’m feeling particularly energetic I’ll take a walk up the Malvern Hills, stopping off to fill up a few bottles of water at the natural Malvern Spring. If it’s good enough for the Queen...
      

    My hair blog

    It's fair to say that I’ve got a slight obsession with Hairfix products! The reason I love them is because they are easy to use and they really do work for me.

    I never want to be without Follicle + Anti Age Gel and Follicle Max Advance because these two products have really transformed my hair.

    My parting seemed to be getting wider when I hit menopause and my hairline and crown seemed sparse. After regularly using these products over the last six months or so my hair is now fuller and healthier. You just have to get into a routine – and make sure you don’t use too much. Less is more in this case!


    There are two new products that I have tried recently. The first is Boost Root Volume Spray, which lifts and thickens and gives extra body. It can be used on damp hair after shampooing to enrich, fortify and protect from heat damage. I also use it on dry hair to refresh my style. This is me on the left having used this great product - I love the lift I get!


    The other product I have recently added to my routine is the rather nifty new Volume Plus, a unique volumising concentrate with keratin that you simply add to your conditioner to add volume to your hair! So easy. It also contains Biotin to aid healthy rood lift, plus Gluconolactone – which is coconut-derived - to help condition the scalp for healthy hair growth and shine.

    Last but not least I’ve converted my 86 year old mum to mousse! She has very fine hair and, to be fair, she looked a little worried when I first suggested mousse because mousses she’s used in the past made her hair crunchy and sticky. I gave her Hairfix’s Make Volume Feel Natural Mousse to try and later that day she commented that her hair felt nice and soft and had stayed in place all day. She took it home with her, so that means she loved it. Five stars from her – and I need to place a new order!
