  • Dry Shampoo for Dark Hair | What You Need to Know

    Moroccanoil's Creative Director, Antonio Corral Calero ventured from Barcelona to Bondi during March to launch the new Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo. Set in the idyllic Bondi Icebergs  dinning room, Antonio gave beauty media the low-down on everything they needed know about this new beauty-cabinet-staple, paying particular attention to why it's such a perfect dry shampoo for dark hair.

    Starting out with the brand when it came to fruition as the first argan oil on the market, Antonio is  well versed in all things Moroccanoil and is globally recognised for his work with the brand and the international runway circuit. We were lucky enough to spend a few minutes with him to get his top tips for using the new Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo.

    Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo for Dark Hair

    How do you recommend people with dark hair use dry shampoo?

    The Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo is available in both dark and light tones so those with dark hair no longer have to worry about that white chalky residue that traditional dry shampoos leave behind. The ultra-fine rice starches in the Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo break down and dissipate immediately leaving hair shiny and clean. To get the best results, simply shake the bottle well, section the hair and apply to the root area. Use a paddle brush and brush the hair from root to tip to help create lift in the hair.

    After a trip to the gym or beach, my hair is in a less than desirable state. Can dry shampoo reverse sweaty and salty locks?

    Yes! The Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo is excellent at absorbing salt, humidity and sweat. A quick spritz and brush from root to tip will help bring the hair back to it's natural state. Dry shampoo won't replace washing your hair, but it will allow you to get some extra days out of a wash.

    Static is a common issue for most people,  can dry shampoo be used to control it as we head into the cooler months?

    Dry shampoo is great at controlling static, simply spray it on to a paddle brush or directly on the hair and brush from root to tip so the product is evenly distributed and there you have it, static-free-hair.

    Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo for Dark Hair 1

    I often overload my hair with product before an event, is it possible to reserve this without having to re-wash? 

    Using too much product is an issue that is easily reversed with Moroccanoil's Dry Shampoo. If you think about when you drop your phone in water, you use rice to extract the moisture, the same principle applies with your hair. The Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo contains rice starch which helps to absorb excess moisture bought about by too much product. Simply spray on the affected areas and brush from root to tip to restore the moisture balance.

    Can Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo be used on all hair types?

    This dry shampoo will not  weigh hair down and is suited to each and every hair type. For those with fine hair, I recommend spraying the Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo through freshly washed hair to help create the illusion of fullness. It's amazing for dark haired people too, as it instils shine and lustre into the hair. It's the perfect product for creating effortless hair with just the right amount of volume.

  • Julianne Hough got an Olaplex Perm!

    Leave it to Julianne Hough to break the internet with yet another hair trend… but this time, it’s not her choppy lob or sun-kissed balayage... it’s her new wavy permed hair texture.

    You might be thinking, “A perm? The ‘80s are over!”, but let me tell you– this isn’t your glam rock meets a scene in Heathers perm. It’s the perm that saves you the 30 minutes it takes to add texture to your hair with a flat iron for that effortless loose beach wave look like Kim Kardashian or wrapping your hair around a wand to get the sought after Victoria’s Secret model hair. Perms have come a long way and are now customizable to current hair trends, without the extra baggage.

    Julianne has been asking her stylist, Riawna Capri of Nine Zero One salon in Los Angeles, to give her a perm for upwards of six years now. However, Jules is a highlight client and any beauty school grad knows– you do NOT perm highlighted hair without expecting serious breakage and damage. We’re talking hair melting off here. Forget what you thought you knew about perms, this is where Olaplex comes in.

    For the first time in hairstory you can perm previously highlighted hair without compromising it’s integrity… and that’s unheard of. Perm master, Joe Santy put Olaplex to the test on the GREASE: Live! starlett Monday afternoon and the end result was fabulous, healthy, California beach waves.

    Jules posted a video the next morning in true “I Woke Up Like This” fashion loving her healthy style ready waves! We love them too and see the beach wave perm here to stay. Who’s next?



  • Salon Feature: Organika Hair

    Exceptional hair. No compromises. These aren’t just words for Sarah and Lisa, the co-owners at Organika Hair.

    Swapping sulphate, paraben, gluten, chloride and phthalate for only natural and organic products, Organika Hair is like the Birkenstock wearing, gluten-free hipster – stylish, with an environmental conscience. Sit back with a drink, relax... guilt-free!

    Ladies, why do you have such a strong environmental focus in salon?

    It’s a lifestyle choice. A healthy body, a healthy mind, a healthy planet. It’s all linked. We believe you don’t have to compromise your health for great hair, in fact, we know you don’t have to.

    Lisa, who inspired you to open a salon like Organika?

    I worked in a salon for 10 years before Organika. That’s when, I discovered my beliefs and lifestyle were a contradiction to my work. I was living a green life at home, but the moment I walked into work everyday, I was exposed to all of the toxins. It just didn’t feel right using them on clients either.

    What do you love about the Neuma range?

    This range embodies everything we stand for. It always delivers results, without the compromise. It's leading the way in healthy
    products that actually work. It’s a win-win!

    How has being a Prestige Partner impacted you, Lisa? Would you recommend it?

    Being a Prestige Partner has given me the opportunity to be involved in all the amazing events. The trip to Hobart in August 2015 at MONA
    was a standout. I’d certainly recommend this initiative.

    Who inspires Organika the most?

    Our clients... and I’m not just saying that. They really are the ones who keep us motivated to do better, everyday. We love hearing about their lives, getting to know each and every one, and hopefully making a difference in the way they feel.

    So, what gets Sarah out of bed each morning?

    Making clients feel amazing about themselves. And the look in their eyes as they walk out of the salon, knowing they look fabulous. Best of all, doing this without putting any harmful chemicals on their body. Oh, and I can’t forget my beautiful, nine month old son, Roman. He has a special knack for getting me up very early in the morning. He’s my personal alarm clock!

    What are Organika’s goals for 2016?

    Maybe another Organika salon – interstate this time! Exciting times ahead for the Organika team.

    Okay, knowing what you know now, if you could go back in time, what‘s the one piece of advice you’d give yourself?

    Always, always, always... trust your instincts. I think there’s a part of you that truly knows what’s best for you. Often, we just don’t listen to it. Follow that inner voice.

  • Moroccanoil Launches the Dry Shampoo of Our Dreams

    For many of us, the wait for a Dry Shampoo that caters to both blondes and brunettes has been a  long one and with the introduction of the Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo, the wait is finally over. The new powerful, innovative formula from Moroccanoil is designed to instantly absorb oil and product build-up without leaving behind any visible powder or residue.

    Featuring natural volumising and deodorizing agents, as well as a UV filter and a hint of Moroccanoil's signature fragrance, the Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo delivers a clean, fresh, just-left-the-salon finish with every use. Specifically developed to address different tonality needs, the dry shampoo features two colour-specific formulas: one to preserve the integrity of light and blonde tones and one to maintain the richness and dimension of darker hues.

    Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo Light

    To bring out the best in light tones, Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo Light features subtle violet undertones to help balance brassiness.

    Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo Dark

    On darker hair, traditional dry shampoos leave behind a white residue that diminishes natural shine; however, Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo Dark Tones is formulated with ultra-fine rice starches that break down and dissipate immediately upon application.

    It's not just the tones that make this Dry Shampoo stand out from the crowd, this revolutionary product truly ticks all of the boxes.

  • 2016 Lakme Collection

    At Lakmé we are focussed on equipping colourists with inspiration, tools and the knowledge to excel creatively; we provide industry-leading education coupled with the highest quality colour products.  Luxurious colour with a unique heritage that is great value.  A focus on innovation, sharing inspiration and knowledge, and fostering a sense of community is at the heart of what we do.

    2016 Lakme Collection: Renacido

    Lakmé’s heritage, grounded in artistic tradition and ties with nature, is the inspiration for the 2016 collection.  At the heart of this campaign is Antoni Gaudi’s vision to look to nature for inspiration.  His view being that nature does not go out of fashion.  The colour palette was derived from imagery of Spanish architecture, art and landscapes; styled to reflect the balance and beauty of the Mediterranean character, designed to inspire and encourage colourists to explore and innovate.

    Artists don’t just take inspiration from one area. They live and breathe it through every facet of their existence and it comes in all forms from the world around them. Renacido is an exploration of an artist’s true palette, if that artist were based in the cities, mountains and waters of Spain. The tones in Gaudi’s art, the colour of the hills and the shimmer of the ocean were the basis of our creation.

  • Treat Damaged Hair with the Moroccanoil Repair Range

    With all of the stresses that our locks go through on a daily basis from heat styling, colouring and environmental factors like the sun, it's no wonder so many of us are constantly battling with dreaded damaged hair.

    The quest for repaired, healthy hair often seems unobtainable but with the help of the Moroccanoil Repair range you can be one step closer to achieving luscious locks that are healthy, radiant and manageable. Moroccanoil's Global Creative Director, Antonio Corral Calero gives us the low down on what steps to take to prevent damaged hair around the clock.

    What are the tell-tale signs of damaged hair in need of a repairing treatment?

    Damaged hair is easy to identify: visible breakage, rough and spongy texture, dry and brittle strands, loss of elasticity, and even faded colour. These are all signs that hair is in need of a repairing treatment to restore it back to health.

    What causes hair damage?

    The two most frequent causes of hair damage are harsh chemicals and excessive heat. Overexposure through a daily heat styling regimen, for example, will uneven the cuticle layer that protects the hair shaft, resulting in rough texture, over-porosity, dryness and brittleness.

    What is your go-to product to repair hair?

    The Moroccanoil Restorative Mask is an absolute miracle hair mask! It is rich in argan oil and proteins that help fortify and restructure to instantly repair damaged hair in just 5–7 minutes. Its high-performance formula infuses protein back into the weakened hair shaft so hair actually becomes stronger, healthier and more beautiful. This mask should be used weekly at first and then less and less frequently as hair condition improves. After using the protein-enriched mask, I recommend following with your favourite Moroccanoil conditioner to de-tangle strands and keep hair silky soft.

    Treat Damaged Hair with Moroccanoil

    What products can I use to help improve my damaged hair on a daily basis?

    It all starts with a great shampoo and conditioner! For daily treatment, I recommend Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Shampoo and Conditioner. These products infuse each strand with antioxidant-rich argan oil and highly reparative keratin, proteins and other nutrients, to help improve hair health over time.

    During fashion week, models are always asking for the perfect shampoo and conditioner to help repair and maintain their hair between days of back-to-back runway styling and my go-to is the Moroccanoil repair range.

    What are some easy hairstyles that help prevent hair damage?

    For most women, damage is caused by excess heat styling, so wash-and-go hair styling is a sure-fire way to avoid damaging strands. For curly hair, apply Moroccanoil Intense Curl Cream throughout hair; it will define, moisturise and nourish strands while fighting frizz. Curls will look shiny and soft, with no sticky residue!

    For straight styles, apply a cocktail of Moroccanoil Treatment and Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream from mid-shaft to ends of damp hair and then allow hair to air dry. The combination will make hair shiny, tame frizz and manage fly-aways, leaving hair soft and smooth.

    If I want to heat style my hair, what products can I use to prevent damage?

    If you are using heat, it’s important to prepare strands with a protective spray, such as Moroccanoil Heat Styling Protection, to shield it from high temperatures and possible thermal damage. Moroccanoil Heat Styling Protection creates a unique thermal

    protective veil to shield hair up to 430˚F, helping prevent breakage and split ends.

    This product is especially essential during awards season when celebrities want to protect their hair from the stress of frequent styling. The best kept secret behind red carpet hair styling always begins with Moroccanoil Treatment to create the perfect foundation for styling, followed by Moroccanoil Heat Styling Protection. This key combination provides manageability and protection when creating more elaborate red-carpet hair looks.

    Treat Damaged Hair with Moroccanoil

    Do you need to use conditioner after using a hair mask?

    After hair is fortified and restored to health, a daily conditioner is perfect to then de-tangle and soften the hair. Hydrating masks, such as Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask and Moroccanoil Weightless Hydrating Mask, are great for a deep conditioning treatment once or twice a week. As they are extremely rich in moisture, they can replace your daily conditioner when you use them.

    Do you have any tips for protecting colour treated hair?

    Absolutely! Protecting colour treated hair starts right at the colouring process. My number one tip is to apply Moroccanoil Treatment from root to tip before a colour process. This go-to product will absorb instantly into the hair to help fill gaps in the cuticle layer and create a thin, protective layer around strands for an even colour application and safe treatment process that won’t alter the colour results.

    I also recommend asking your colourist to mix 1 or 2 pumps of Moroccanoil Treatment into the colour as it will actually help the colour absorb into the hair while keeping the hair shaft smooth for a fantastic final result.

    How can you tell when hair is back to a healthy state?

    Hair that is in a naturally healthy state is soft and flexible, de-tangles easily and holds a style longer. Its looks and feels naturally touchable, smooth, shiny and beautiful from day to night.
