Halo Hair Guide

Welcome, take a seat and lets diagnosis your scalp together. I take my job seriously; your hair and scalp health is my priority. 

Halo is designed to protect and repair with a perfect balance of hydration, nourishment and strength; restoring hair to optimum condition by using plant-based ingredients that mimic the natural composition of the scalp

We don't want your hair to be a concern and you shouldn't either. Follow our adviser guide and kick off your Halo journey with confidence, you'll have an expert in trichology and cosmetology behind your chair to prescribe advice unique to your hair and scalp.


Lets get started....

Pre-Treatments are a non negotiable in my books, applying products topically before your cleanse and care routine can and will build your hair health faster than any other step in your routine.

Always brush with our Boar Bristle brush before you start your pre-treat routine.

Hair and Scalp Oil to nurture a compromised scalp, improve follicle health and ignite healthy hair growth.

Hydrated Halo Pre-Treat to protect and repair from all damaging aggressors whether chemical or physical.

Rejuvenate Dust to exfoliate, ignite healthy hair growth, improve follicle health, remove flakes and product build-up. Mix with Oil and massage into scalp before your cleanse routine.

Use one or both depending on your goal.


Shampoo is designed for your scalp only, so, pick your shampoo based on your scalp (not hair) needs. If your scalps skin barrier is compromised always add our Hydrated Hair Oil as a pre-treat before cleansing. 

Please reach out if you need more guidance on your scalp health.


 Conditioner is designed for hair health.

Mixing up our ranges is highly recommended so you get a good balance of strength, hydration and moisture.

LOC Method (liquid, oil, cream) is a way of applying your Haircare for maximum penetration of product. As a liquid is more readily absorbed than an oil or cream.

Green house method (GHM) is a great way of applying oils and conditioner for deeper absorption of product to the cortex. You apply your oil (as a pre-treat) and use a shower cap to create a warm environment so the product can work deeper. This method is amazing for low porosity hair types. You can also use this method with our conditioners and deep conditioning treatment.

Pre-Treat Always brush scalp and hair with our boar bristle for the best results. Apply either Nourished By Hair and Scalp Oil to scalp and/ or ends before cleansing, layer with Hydrated Halo Pre- Treat or pick the Pre-treat best suited to your hair needs.

Application of Shampoo Shake bottle, Emulsify product in hands before applying to ensure even application of actives. Always apply on very wet hair. Massaging your scalp and taking time to thoroughly cleanse the whole scalp means the active ingredients that are cleansing, hydrating, strengthening and moisturising have time to work. Sprinkle with more water massage again this helps with a deeper clean. Repeat. Make sure this step is done correctly and allow enough time to see the best results possible. Add in our Boost Brush for the best cleansing results.

Application of Conditioner is extremely important in seeing maximum results. Blot dry hair with our silk dry turban without roughing up the cuticle. Apply throughout hair spending time to make sure you are smoothing the cuticle down with your hands- you will feel the difference once you get the slip feeling on your hair. Then make sure you leave on hair for at least 3 minutes before rinsing.

Applying Curl Products applying products to curly hair can be difficult as there are so many methods out there. What we always recommend is apply using our layering method. Start with Tangled Toner, Apply cream and add in Rejuvenate Dust for hold. Form curls with your chosen method. Leave to dry naturally or hover and cup with a diffuser then scrunch out any remaining cast with Revitalise serum or Oil. 

To refresh curls between wash days -

1. To bring back form; Spritz with Tangled Toner, leave to dry naturally and then scrunch out if needed when dry for a natural soft curl.

2. Apply Gel and leave to dry naturally if you just need extra hold and form.

3. Apply Hydrated Hair Oil or Serum if you just need shine and protection.

Wet Styling Applying products based on the nutrient value and molecular weight insures your hair can absorb the nutrients needed for healthy hair. Your hair may not need every step, but, always apply using these layering steps. Tangled Toner, Hydrated Heat Halo, Hydrated Hair Oil ( not many hair types need this step), Leave in Conditioner, Gel.

Dry Styling depends on the result you are after, Tangled Toner for refreshing natural curls or beach day hair, Hydrated Hair Oil for Shine, Styled By Gel for texture or reforming curls and waves.
