From heat damage to hair growth, brush up your knowledge.

THEY SAY THAT your hair is your crown, but how well do you look after yours?

From brushing and styling to washing and drying, our hair goes through a lot on a daily basis – and it needs more care than you might think.

The average person has between 80,000 and 150,000 hairs on their head, and every hair has its own muscle, nerve and blood supply.

Safe to say, then, that it’s important to minimise damage and do what we can to make our hair strong and healthy.
