Oily hair… We’ve all had it and NONE of us looks good with it.

Let’s get to the bottom of why we have it, where it comes from and what we can do to control it. 

Oily hair is from either an oversupply of your scalp’s natural oils, which comes from the sebaceous glands, from not shampooing your hair frequently enough or not using a shampoo that adequately cleanses your hair and scalp.

Getting the perfect balance of washes into your week can often be tricky. It all depends on how often you exercise, your hair texture/condition and what you’re using for shampoo and conditioner.

We recommend a prescriptive shampoo range if your scalp is overproducing natural oils (sebum).  Professional shampoos contain ingredients that provide a deep cleanse without the stripping effect you can get from non-prescriptive products.  You will find you get more time between washes just by using the correct products. Try a scalp cleansing scrub, our favourite is Davines Solu Sea Salt Scrub Cleanser.

Make sure you shampoo your hair TWICE! The first shampoo removes the dirt and any product build-up in your hair, the second cleanses the hair and scalp.

Another way to avoid the oil slick is to keep your conditioner away from your roots. The area of your hair that needs conditioning is your mid-lengths and ends. This is the part of the hair that is sensitised. The shampoo opens up the cuticle layer to remove dirt and product, the conditioner closes the cuticle, smoothing the hair shaft down giving hair a softer shinier feel.

A little note to all the clean freaks out there… Washing your hair too often can be just as bad as not washing it enough. It can overstimulate the scalp and excess oil production starts working to replace the natural oils being washed away. Eventually, your hair will become accustomed to how frequently you shampoo and stop releasing excess oil. 

Dry shampoo is your go-to during this phase.  Ask one of our stylists to conduct a thorough hair and scalp analysis to recommend the ideal take-home range for your hair and scalp.

If ongoing oiliness and scalp problems are an issue for you, book in for a complimentary consultation where the team at Eden can conduct a thorough hair and scalp consultation to recommend the ideal treatment plan and take-home range for your hair and scalp.

An Update For Our Wonderful Guests

Firstly, Thank you so much for your patience as we navigate through the changes that were announced by the Chief Minister on 27/9/21 and create a plan forward. Apologies in advance for so much info, there is a lot to cover.

Future bookings

You may have seen our update on our Instagram where we advertised a form where you can express interest in a future booking – Please note that we will be making contact with all of the people who had appointments during lockdown as a priority. However if you didn’t have an appointment scheduled during lockdown, here is the link to that form.

An outline of our plan

We know that we may still receive changes and updates from the government or simply find that some things in practice don’t work – so, we may still need to make further adjustments.

We aim to honour all pre-booked appointments, however, we may need to make some changes to some services, and will contact you by phone if this is the case.

Select services on offer

From what we understand we will be allowed to have a maximum of 5 clients in the salon at once until 29/10. This will mean we have limitations on how many colours and cuts we are able to do at any one time. As such, we have put together a list of services that we will be offering to get through the first 4-5 weeks coming out of lockdown:

  • 1/2 head foils
  • Balayage refresh
  • Regrowth tints
  • All over colours
  • Tint and foil packages (regrowth and 10 foils)
  • Trim or haircuts with colour services
  • Treatments with colour services such as plex and k18
  • Haircut as stand alone services (available on Monday and Tuesday only from 10 – 3:00) until 19/11/21
  • Cezanne smoothing treatments
  • Hair extension adjustments

We understand that many people will want to get the works and have a total makeover, however, to make our services available to more people, we have decided to limit all of our appointments to this reduced list of services initially.

This may be a smaller service than what you would like eg a half head of foils instead of a full head, or a balayage refresh instead of balayage lightening, but we can guarantee that you will feel transformed even with this slightly reduced service and we will form a plan moving forward for you to have everything you would like to have done as soon as possible.

To manage the number of people in the salon, we will have certain times allocated for hair cuts exclusively and the rest of the time will be for colour or extension appointments. We hope that these will be suitable for people, we will be doing the best we can within the framework we have to work in – we greatly appreciate your patience.

At this point in time, for the next 5 weeks we are offering haircuts as a stand alone service on Mondays and Tuesdays only.

Existing clients

Our existing clients are our highest priority when we reopen. As such, we are not taking any new clients at this time, however, we would love to look after new guests as soon as we are able to in the future and look forward to opening up appointments soon. We would encourage you to complete the form noted above if you would like to come in once we are open to new clients again.

We understand that our hair extension clients require the most urgent appointments and the stylists who offer this service will be working exclusively on catching up on extension clients until we have got through all those overdue.

A large number of our clients book in advance, often for the whole year. We will not cancel any future appointments as we believe that our commitment is first of all to those who have committed to us. We understand some bookings may need to be adjusted which we can do for you in the salon at your next appointment.

If you can come in through the day and through the week, we will have a much greater chance of being able to get you in sooner as we are nearly at capacity for our evening and weekend appointments until the end of the year.

If you need to get in touch, the best way to reach us is by emailing and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Please do not call us – we’ll call you. If you are concerned, please email.

Splitting our team across our two salons

We will be splitting our team up and working across our two Dickson salons to allow more clients for each stylist, so please double check the location when your confirmation message comes through.

Colour kits

In the meantime, we are still offering our colour kits until we reopen to our existing clients if you would like to colour your hair with your normal salon tint/toner to get you through to your next appointment – you can find all of the details about this on our Instagram or by giving us a call on 6262 8948.

Our colour kits and any of our retail ranges are available via click and collect during lockdown Monday – Friday 10:00 – 4:00, however, must be pre-arranged.

We can also post any of our retail ranges out to you. We are able to send any of the wonderful ranges we stock in the salon including ColourWow root touch up powder, Kevin Murphy, Davines, Pure, Clever Curl and more at a flat rate of $9.95 and free for orders over $100.

Thank you for reading this lengthy update – we will be in touch with you as soon as possible to arrange an appointment for you.
