REVIEW: Hair By David Gillson

Yeah, I Got My Hair Did!

On Thursday the 29th of May, I was spoilt to a colour, cut and treatment by none other than the master of colour, David Gillson himself! David Gillson works at Carlton Hair and I visited him at the Melrose Arch branch where I felt like a princess for the morning!
I arrived a bit early so while waiting for David I was treated to a manicure which I was grateful about as two days later I was attending a wedding. While having my manicure, I explained to David what look I was going for and he immediately knew what colours to use. We all know this blonde isn’t natural so David and I decided to bring in a bit more of my natural colour to darken it for winter as well as help with the dreaded regrowth that blondes experience. 
David used the new colour technique by Davines called A New Colour. It’s an amazing and innovative colouring system that permanently colours your hair while avoiding the use of ammonia! Its a colouring cream that is based on natural substances of vegetable origin such as caretnoids which is a vegetable pigment that has an antioxidant action as well as vegetable melanin which is an antioxidant and anti-free radical. These new colouring creams even contain Vitamin C which help protect your hair structure. 

And while I do love being a blonde, we all know how bad bleaching your hair is for you (but I mean come on, I have so much fun being a blonde hehe). The bleaching powder from the Davines A New Colour system is free from ammonia and persulphates and can lighten up to 7 levels – it’s pretty much one of the more ‘natural’ bleaches. 

The A New Colour system comes in 43 shades so you’re bound to find a colour that suits you!

David used the Flamboyage technique on my hair which blends natural and saturated tones with natural bases. It helps enhance natural tones through the hair which in turn helps with regrowth and leaves hair looking more natural. I was excited about this as regrowth is my absolute worst and sometimes as hard as I try I can’t always make it to the hairdresser straight away. 

After David applied my colour and I had it washed out, I experienced the Davines Replumping Salon Treatment with a steam treatment called the Micro Mist, this allows for deeper absorbtion of the treatment. The Replumping range from Davines has phtoceuticals which are extracted from plums. These have an antioxidant action which fights free radicals and cellular ageing. It also included hyaluronic acid which helps restore elasticity n the hair strand. You can get the shampoo; conditioner and treatment for at home too!

I really am in love with my colour and have received so many compliments! David added a new warm brown tone and I think next time I have my hair done I will add more of this tone while it’s still winter!
