Deep conditioning starts from within the follicle and that's where this course takes you. We explore the science and beauty of caring for hair naturally. We explore hair nutrition and chemistry before diving into our hands-on 'how to' guide to product application and selection. This course specifically covers the needs of curly, frizzy, coily and/ or damaged hair but the scalp conditioning tips and insights apply to all hair types.
During this one day course you will customise and build a range of six different formulations all designed to work with rather than against the hair.
The course is designed to suit brand owners, hair product enthusiasts, stylists and salon owners alike and while the emphasis is on natural ingredients as actives, some safe synthetics may be present in the formula bases.
Key topics covered in this course include:
To ensure your learning experience can be applied and customised to suit your aspirations the course is taught from both a chemistry and an application perspective:
