Experts are unanimous: hair must be treated individually, just like you would treat your skin. To get the most out of your hair treatment, it is important to distinguish its exact needs. If you’re not sure what these are, our expert hair stylists are here to help you obtain the correct diagnostic, in order to equip you with the ability to restore your hair to its optimal state.

We teamed up with Paul Edmonds, Shu Uemura Art of Hair Styling Ambassador to find out exactly what hair treatment you need. “With modern hair care it's very prescriptive so depending on your hairs moisture or protein levels, I would personalise the treatment to your needs to improve overall hair condition, style hold, and shine.” Paul advises prescriptive treaments that are focussed on improving your hair’s condition. 
“The right treatments can also benefit scalp and hair health. Shu Uemura has released the Essence Absolue Overnight Serum which is a great at home treatment to revitalise length  “

How Often Should I Use Hair Treatments

You should ensure you have a decent care regime but treatments should be a treat and not for daily use. “I would always recommend a weekly or bi-weekly treatment within your hair care regime to maintain optimum hair health” says Paul.

“External aggressors such as the sun, water and air pollution break down the hair fibre. A hair treatment can support the hairs restoration leaving it full of life and luster“
