“When your hair starts to come through you will find that it’s uneven. If you had straight hair it might be tight coarse curls or if you had curly hair it might be straight; this is absolutely normal and it’s your new normal! You’re going to have short hair, shoulder length and long hair – plan that journey and embrace that change.” says Adam Reed, ghd Global Ambassador, on styling from 6 months on.

Adam’s Tips

  • Avoid heat styling and colouring your hair in the first six months after treatment
  • Stimulate growth by brushing your hair with a soft-bristle brush
  • A diet rich in calcium, vitamin D and Omega 3 is great for strong healthy hair
