Pollution Solution: Zoe's 5 Top Tips

Tuesday, 22 October 2019 10:14

With more much more awareness of increases in pollution level in our towns and cities, ghd UK Ambassador, Zoe Irwin shares her 5 hot tips to keep you and your clients' hair from lacking in lustre.

Pollution is a major cause of dull, lacklustre hair and greasy roots. Nitrogen dioxide gas from car exhausts and toxic oily molecules measure 2.5 micrometres, that’s one 400th of a millimetre, so 20 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair. So, it’s no wonder that they easily gain entry into the cuticles of your hair. The toxic chemicals in the air, including particle matter, ozone, nitrogen dioxide and sulphur dioxide, are produced by transport, agriculture, power generation, burning fuel for cooking as well as other industrial sources. 

Here are ghd UK ambassador Zoe Irwin's top tips for a pollution solution to keep hair from looking lacklustre! 


Understand your hair type rst and then choose the right hair care products accordingly. Do you have naturally oily or dry hair? Do you have normal-to-dry hair or normal- to-oily hair? The right shampoo and conditioner will keep your hair healthy and clean without stripping it off its natural nutrients that help protect your hair. 


It’s important to make sure that your hair is well protected – both in terms of physical protection and nourishment before you step out of the house. The best-selling ghd heat protect spray provides an invisible barrier against everyday heat damage as well as environmental factors. Containing the unique ghd heat protection system and conditioning agents,  this spray will protect your hair all day long. 


The long-term solution to keeping your hair healthy is to maintain a healthy and balanced diet, ensuring you eat enough protein-rich foods. Hair strands are made up of protein- bres, and a protein-rich diet will strengthen your hair and encourage hair growth. Eggs, lentils, sh, leafy greens, etc. are must-have hair foods if you want to aunt healthy locks at all times. 


Oily and greasy hair will only attract more pollutants, dust particles, and dirt to your hair. Make sure your hair isn’t oily and try to keep your scalp as clean as possible. However, shampooing your hair every day isn’t good for your scalp either – this is when dry shampoo can save you! 


Pollutants often suck the moisture out of your hair and scalp, leaving the hair dry, thin, and prone to damage. Fortify split ends and protect future breakage by using ghd advanced split end therapy treatment. Activated by heat, this wonder treatment works instantly to fortify ends, leaving hair feeling sleek, smooth and shiny for up to 10 washes. Simply comb through shampooed hair, blow dry and then pass your ghd platinum + styler over hair to seal in the product using heat.
