According to hairdresser Peter Young, founder and owner of high profile salon Synergy Melbourne, other problems in winter are combination hair type (oily roots, dry ends) and an irritated, sensitive or flaky scalp. These can be caused by ?a lack of internal moisture balance, dietary deficiencies, allergic reactions, product build up, hormonal changes, infrequent shampooing, insufficient rinsing of shampoo, or scalp conditions.? Regardless of the cause, the start of a healthy head of hair is a healthy scalp and if your scalp is oily while your ends are dry or is feeling tight, tingly, dry and full of flakes, Peter Young recommends using a range of targeted products such as the ALONZO Equivalence Range – specially formulated products for combination hair, sensitive scalp and dandruff. Not only will these products leave your scalp moisturised and flake free, ALONZO helps you restore your hair to optimum condition and then keeps it there. The ALONZO Equivalence range of products is available at selected salons nationally. Stockists: 07 3291 2244.
