Hair Health – Poor colouring techniques and cheap colour

I often see over processed hair when it comes to Balayage and especially Highlights.  I don’t know who needs to hear this, but if your hair is already blonde on the mid-lengths and ends, it does not need MORE bleach over the top!

Our Artists are expertly trained and condition priority is drilled into them, so this is not common practice at Cabello, but if you are consistently having bleach put through your ends, or having bleach put in packets and folded onto the root area where there is bleach, then you are not going to have hair left very soon.

Check your Artist’s credentials easily by asking questions and reviewing their work regularly.  You can check out our expertise by taking a look at our Team at

Not ALL bleach is the same

Please remember that a salon can only survive by making money, so if a salon offers you a bargain set of highlights, colour or balayage, they will be saving money somewhere along the line.

We use ONLY the best AVEDA colour and Enlightener. Let me tell you how important it is to pay for the best and what other bleaching products are out there.

Bleach is a harsh invader that breaks apart your hair proteins to remove colour. After the bleach washes out, your hair strands are left lighter — and significantly weaker . Breakage, frizz, and dryness are just some of the side effects that you may experience after applying cheap product.

Aveda’s signature blend of protective plant oils emulates the sun’s natural lightening.  It is made with certified organic plant oils,  sunflower, castor and jojoba – helps condition hair and infuse it with shine, while its pure-fume aroma of rose, lemon, peppermint and other pure flower essences transform the processing experience.

I’ll also let you into a little secret:

  • Aveda Enlightener Wholesale Price = £37
  • Generic bleach = Lowest £6 or highest £20-£25
    (if you’re lucky to get a salon that pushed the boat out)

So if you are skimping, chances are they are too – please remember this when you are booking that bargain set of highlights.
