I am thrilled to have this new product in the salon. The Kitoko Botancial Colour is a 91% organic plant based, ammonia free & resorcinol free colour.
This Plant-based colour mixes with water for beautiful, damage-free results and is a demi- permanent colour that can last up to as many as 20 washes – it is perfect for fragile or damaged hair, first-time colour clients or those with ingredient sensitivities.
I have been testing it in the salon and have been seeing great results.
"Carly, I am so thrilled you have found this product, I have been allergic to hair dye for over 30 years. I have had no reaction with this new colour. I am really happy with it so far and it covers the grey well, it is so wonderful to have a full coverage of colour." Sue

As a professional hairdresser in Noosa I am asked all the time about “Keratin Straighteners” and I find a lot of people have been mislead or have the wrong idea of what a “Keratin Straightener” is. Being a professional hairdresser in Noosa I have clients sitting in my chair thinking that what they have had done in the past is a non-chemical conditioning treatment.
This is not the case. First of all Keratin is the protein that hair is made up of, so yes this is the part that helps protect the hair and give it strength. But you would not need extra keratin in your hair if it was in perfect condition and had never had a chemical treatment.
This takes me to the second part, that is there a keratin straightener in a non-chemical conditioning treatment? This again is just not the case. When having your hair straightened or curled for that matter, you are changing the natural structure of your hair and there are only two ways you can do this. One is semi-permanent with a blow dry, a hot roller or styling iron, this then will go back to it’s natural form when washed.
The other way is permanent and this can only be done with chemicals. This also works the same for colour. Anything that can change the natural tone, depth or structure of your hair will be done with chemicals.
Please call or email me for more information on hair straightening. If you need a professional hairdresser in Noosa contact me here or by phone on 0488776267. You won’t be disappointed with the results – have a look at my gallery Hair Styling By Carly and Before & After Styling for examples of how I can transform your hair. Also see how affordable and competitive my services and prices are.
Everyone’s doing it! Are you? Yes, colouring your hair is rampant these days – the constantly changing heads of hair on the catwalks, fashion mags and all those celebs – it seems their hair colour changes almost every other day!
But is it really as easy as they make it look….?
The short answer is no. Sorry…. however if you have patience and a great colourist you can achieve success.
It’s more than likely that you started experimenting with colours when you were at school. From there, you probably tried a few different colours, with varying degrees of success. So, lets start with a few key points about the colour process and how it will affect your hair.
Firstly, everyone has a different undertone or reflects in their hair.
So for example if you have black, dark brown, or medium brown hair, you will have a undertone of red. If you have light brown, dark blonde, medium blonde, you will have a undertone of orange. If you have light blonde to pale blonde, you will have a undertone of yellow.
This means if you colour your hair lighter or lift your hair colour in anyway your natural undertone is always going to show through.
So, the more you strip back a colour (lighten) the more of the undertone or reflection you will see. The reality is, that the process to change your hair colour is a long and slow one – there is no cheap option to achieve the colour you want, as well as keeping your hair healthy at the same time.
Your colourist is brilliant, but even they are limited to what they can do for you.
Essentially colouring is a two step process, and repeat, and repeat…
To start the process your colourist will bleach or lift your hair to the palest colour you can reasonably achieve – be patient, the first few times even it may not be as light as you wanted! It’s also worth remembering that when you lift or strip your hair you are not only stripping colour pigment out of your hair but also moisture so you can expect damage of some kind.
Then your colourist will tone your hair with a colour toner: green to cancel red, blue to cancel orange, and violet to cancel yellow. Sometimes this makes the hair muddy looking, or a little tinged to a blue, green, or even a violet colour.
Also a toner will only lasts 4-6 weeks, after that the undertone or reflect is back to its natural undertones. So you need to keep on top of your toner or use a specific toning shampoo. Your colourist should be able to give you the best treatment for your hair. This may also mean going back to the colourist every few weeks.
You will need to balance your hair with a pH conditioner, so it keeps your hair’s condition at its best, this will also help your colour and your toner will last longer and look shinier and healthier.
So, while it may look like celebrities change their hair overnight, that’s simply not the case. Colouring takes time and lots and lots of patience…but the results are well worth it. Happy – patient – colouring !
