The Hair Sanctuary is relaunching this weekend, and we’ve taken a sneak peak into the newly refurbished salon. Salon owner, Naomi Brooks has worked tirelessly for the Manchester salon to become the well established hairdressing hub it is today. The team is made up of afro and textured hair specialists offering a variety of services. The most requested? Avlon‘s Texture Release!

Despite a global pandemic, The Hair Sanctuary has continued to successfully grow which is why Naomi made the decision to move to a bigger premises, where she can expand both her team and clientele – what a way to celebrate business success! Avlon products are still a big part of the Hair Sanctuary, displayed on quirky scaffold board shelves the products are certain to catch the client’s eye. “For me, I feel Avlon cater to every curl, kink & coil, and their collections have something for everyone. I know no matter who walks through the salon door that I can service them with Avlon,” says Naomi.

About Naomi Brooks

Naomi Brooks

Naomi’s hairdressing career kicked off when she left school as she’s always been passionate about hair. Building quite the career, Naomi has had some incredible opportunities from assisting at fashion weeks to taking the role of lead hair for a designer. A recent, yet extremely proud moment was when Naomi was asked to take part in The Black Issue photo shoot for Tribu-te magazine. “This experience was close to my heart as a black woman in the industry striving to showcase my talent and excel. I love contributing to our industry in many ways from judging competitions through to educating and mentoring.”

Naomi’s top 5 Avlon products

My top 5 products are in no order, however Crème press is defiantly my number one.

Crème press

Working to give hair a silky straight press, KeraCare Crème Press contains a blend of natural light oils that shield hair from thermal heat damage. Leaving a natural looking sheen to hair, the cream prevents dry, dull brittle hair and your tresses stay straighter for longer.

Silken Seal

KeraCare Silken Seal (Blow Drying) will protect your hair from thermal damage, whilst sealing the cuticles to prevent moisture loss. Lightweight and non-oily, it also contains sunscreens to shield your hair from the sun’s damaging UV rays.

Hydrating Shampoo

Tease out those tangles with this conditioning KeraCare Hydrating Detangling Shampoo. Its lightweight formula not only cleanses hair, but it also relaxes your locks leaving it with a healthy looking appearance.

Curl, Shape & Shine Cream

This anti-frizz, no flake styling product helps hair acquire a perfect coil shape or defined twist. Hair porosity is significantly reduced. Makes natural hair easy to comb when wet. Hair and hair fibers are strengthened and shiny.

Deep Moisturizing Masque

Catering specifically for dry curls and coiled hair; this masque works to revitalise, restore and hydrate so you can experience healthy-looking, smoother locks from root to tip.
