Setting goals is a great way to focus on a target or objective you want to achieve and gives you the motivation to affect that change within your daily routine. We often take the time to set food, fitness, or fashion goals but your hair needs some love, too. It’s time to make some hair resolutions to pursue your hair goals!
So, if you wish for luscious long locks, or if you want to help moisturise and repair your strands from all the heat-styling, recent colouring and damage, setting a hair goal is a great way to keep your routine fresh and sets steps to healthy-looking hair.
As part of your SalonLab&Me consultation, your hairdresser will help you set hair goals and then recommend the most suitable products to help you achieve them. Let’s deep dive into a common goal – Moisture & Elasticity!

Why does your hair need moisture?
The moisture balance of hair is one of the key factors for healthy-looking, manageable hair. It also influences other hair attributes such as texture and manageability. However, the moisture level of hair depends on various factors.
The hair can be disbalanced due to several factors such as blow-drying or sun exposure. This can cause the feeling of dry and rough hair and can cause hair to lose elasticity. Therefore, it is important to balance the moisture level helping to increase elasticity and softness.
What are the signs your hair needs moisture?
- Hair structure feels dry due to external and natural causes
- Hair lacks smoothness and appears dull
- Hair has low elasticity and manageability making it more prone to tangles and knots
- Lack of elasticity: if hair is lacking moisture, it may be less elastic and more prone to breakage when stretched or styled
