Caivar Moisture Intense

~~Do you feel your hair is lacking the moisture it needs? Yet you use all the deep conditioners out there and nothing seems to be working for you? Why not treat you hair with this luxurious moisture intense treatment trio! Designed to create a barrier around your hair to trap in moisture that is lost on a daily basis!!~~

Step 1- Oil creme pre shampoo treatment

Used before you shampoo, it deeply moisturizes to revitalize dehydrated strands, leaving hair supremely smooth, soft and shiny. Specially formulated to quickly absorb into hair that needs more nourishment.

Step 2- Intense oil creme moisture shampoo

This low-lather oil-based cleanser gently removes dirt and oils. Its innovative oil-based texture transforms to an anti-aging creme with water. The Abyssinian Oil binds to surface impurities and bad oils on the hair to gently cleanse without stripping thirsty hair of much needed moisture.

Step 3- Moisture intense oil creme conditioner

An intense deep conditioner with nutrient rich Abyssinian Oil and anti-aging creme that works synergistically to protect the hair by creating a lipid-like barrier around each strand, helping to seal in hydration and reduce daily moisture loss without weighing hair down.

Autumn Hair Trends 2015 – Polished Side Parting

Want to change your style for the new season but you don’t want to cut or colour your hair?

images (20)

Changing your parting is a great idea. Whether you prefer to wear your hair wavy or straight, the deep side parting is a winner for both styles.


Add a bit of serum to your locks to smooth away any unwanted strays. Also you could try tucking one side behind your ear for a more sophisticated finish.

We recommend Bamboo Brilliance Cream to achieve this polished side parting:


Bamboo’s nourishing leave-in cream glosses hair with healthy-looking shine & brilliant radiance. Can be used on wet and dry hair it tames frizz and flyaways with lightweight control & texture. Also has Color Hold technology which provides color retention.

Ever Wondered How To Use Treatments or Hair Masks!?

Confused about how long to keep a hair mask or treatment on your hair for? Or why do you even need to bother with using them? Well it all depends on what kind of treatment you are using and what kind of treatment your hair needs!!

Hair treatments/masks are brilliant for replenishing your dry or colour treated hair. Thats a double whammy of damage that requires some serious moisture!!

Young woman looking at split ends. Damaged long hair

Masks along with treatments will stop your hair feeling like straw, repair your hair and smooth it down without weighing it down.

There are 3 simple tips to make sure you get the full benefit out of your product

1. Apply your hair mask/treatment between shampoo and conditioner.

2. Concentrate on the mid lenghts and ends of your hair.

3. Comb your treatment through with a wide tooth comb or tangle teaser to distribute the product, once your time is up, rinse and apply your conditioner.


Struggling to find out how long to leave the treatment on for?

It is important to follow the instructions on the bottle, but if they are not clear follow these timings as a rule.

Protein Treatments/Masks= 10 minutes

If you have coloured or damaged hair, be careful with protein treatments. Follow the instructions on the product as a general rule, never leave them on longer than 10 minutes.

Pay attention when using protein on dry or danaged hair, over use of the product can make hair brittle and cause more damage.

It is recommended to do a protein treatment once a week or once a fortnight.

Caviar Repair RX Fix & Fill Treatment Masque-

A deeply reparative treatment masque that nourishes and and strengthens, improving elasticity, manageability and leaving hair soft, shiny and completely restored.

Hydrating Treatments/Masks= 5-20 minutes

Moisturising treatments can be left on your hair for any length of time, but after a certain time don’t get any more benefits from the product.

Use hydrating moisture treatments for 5-20 minutes but still do follow the manufactures timings.

You can do moisture treatments for an hour or overnight, but you’ll get almost the same benefits as doing it for just 20 minutes. A quick tip is to do them in the shower as often as you feel but once a week or fortnight do a full treatment and really let your hair soak up all the products goodness!
