It is etched in our minds that the sun will damage our skin without sun block protection, but we often forget those rays can do the same harm to our locks. Most importantly, UV can leave our hair in a dry, colour-faded mess. Well, renowned hair guru Frédéric Fekkai is here to protect and revive luscious locks with his Technician Colour Care 3-Minute Mask.
The specially designed formula will block UV rays protecting hair from damage and colour fading while allowing your hair to revamp its vibrancy. Jam-packed with avocado oil to boost moisture levels, the mask is also infused with a crisp tropical scent and hint of vanilla to calm and soothe your senses.
In order to get the maximum benefit, towel dry shampooed hair and apply the mask generously from the root to the end of your hair. After 3 minutes (maybe five if you have the time) rinse the mask off your hair and once styled, this quick makeover will instantly reveal a brighter colour and a softer texture.
With all of the time and money we spend perfecting our sun-kissed highlights, it’s time to protect our most luscious, colourful asset.

Maintaining curly hair can be a challenge. Curly hair tends to be more fragile than straight hair, so harsh styling products can leave hair looking and feeling over dry and damaged. Here are some great tips from Redken for keeping curls under control:
- Wash your hair with cold water to avoid frizz
- Part and comb your hair in the shower while the conditioner is still in to prevent breakage. Use a wide-toothed comb.
- To prevent frizz, do not rub your hair with the towel but gently dry out the access water.
- Use a diffuser on your hairdryer. Only dry your hair until slightly damp to prevent frizz and brittleness. Then apply cool air to hair to seal the cuticle.
Bring your dry, brittle ringlets back to life by nourishing them with products and treatments specifically formulated to enhance curly hair. Here are some you may wish to try:

Frédéric Fekkai opened his 2nd Los Angeles salon in a newly restored Spanish mission style building, on the ultra-chic Melrose Place earlier this month.
“Southern California is developing into micro communities, and we want to be in all the places where our clients reside,” says Frédéric Fekkai “I have always been a fan of the antiques shops along Melrose Place. Now it’s also shaping up to be the most coveted spot for ready-to-wear and accessories and, naturally, for our style-savvy clientele. I’m delighted to add Fekkai to that mix.”
The salon’s layout is designed with open style and color studios in a warm, loft-like setting replete with dark brown leather banquette seating, soft silk pillows and sophisticated polished-nickel table lamps for a modern look and feel. A generous outdoor terrace lined with banquette seating will allow clients to enjoy manicures and pedicures while sipping beverages or nibbling on a delicious lunch. The shampoo area is cordoned off from the main space to provide an intimate, soothing setting with three state-of-the-art Japanese ergonomically designed shampoo chairs that fully recline for the ultimate in function and comfort.
