Hair is composed mainly of keratin, a protein formed by amino acid molecules sourced from our food. Exposure to the sun, pollution, and changes in our lifestyle can be factors in dry, brittle, and lifeless hair.
Here are some mistakes we make that can cause damage to our hair:
Healthy and strong hair is critical and can be achieved with the proper maintenance, care, and a little love! If you want to learn more about how to create the best hair routine for you, you can always schedule a free consultation or a haircut with us and we will be more than happy to help.
Hey there, it is the SASO Curly Hair Specialist crew here writing a collaborative blog to share about one of our all time favourite curly cutting techniques: The Cado Cut!
Textured hair is some of the most beautiful hair out there. With so many different variations of gorgeous curly and wavy textures there is so much individuality and so much to love... but oh man can it be difficult to find the style that works for you - this is where the Cado Cut comes in!
The Cado Cut is designed to create beautiful cascading layers, volume, and a balanced shape. This means that all types of curls and waves can be cut to enhance, define, and volumize that natural texture! And even better, this cut is designed to be completely customizable for what you as a client are looking for! Looking for more shape and definition? We've got you covered. Wanting more bounce and curl, without sacrificing length? You can have your curls, your bounce, and your mermaid hair too!
You may be thinking: "Cool sounds great... but I have had disastrous haircuts in the past. Why should I trust you people??"
Super valid question. First, some background on why you may have had some bad experiences: working with curls can be very intimidating for hair stylists. This is due to a few factors, 1- we do not get a good foundational education on curls in hair school and 2- there is an insane amount of different curl patterns and hair types that exist, so feeling confident to tackle them all takes time and practice. Unfortunately this gap in our traditional education leads to a lot of mistakes in the real world - this is the very reason why we have designated Curly Hair Specialists at Salon Society. Our team of curl experts have taken additional education and work with curls regularly to keep up our skills. We are also always on the hunt for new classes and new curly cutting techniques to ensure we can always meet the expectations of our curly clients - and that is how we found the Cado Academy.
The Cado Academy and cutting method class was honestly life changing for us! We all came out of that course feeling absolutely invigorated and can approach ALL curl patterns and hair textures with confidence and excitement. This course and new technique are probably some of the most rewarding and valuable education we have ever taken. Knowing that we are able to offer stunning results to every curly client is such an absolute dream come true!
..And we would love to help you fall in love with your curls too! Book for a consultation with one of us today and let's chat about your curly hair dreams - and then make them a reality!

Hello Textured Hair, meet our 3 Permanent Texture Treatments…
Q: What is a Permanent Texture Treatment and how does it work?
A: Our permanent texture treatment changes the hair’s structure by reacting with the disulphide bonds*, loosening them, which is then followed by the ironing process that fixes the hair into permanently straight, smooth, shiny, and overall healthier hair.
This treatment transforms the hair texture gently and complements existing salon services like colour. It is resistant to hair-damaging chemicals like chlorine and salt. This new-generation Permanent Texture Treatment uses proprietary technology, which is a hybrid between keratin treatment and thermal straightening, making it suitable for all hair types.
* hair bonds that are responsible for your hair type
Q: Are Permanent Texture Treatments the same as a perm?
A: No, our Permanent Texture Treatments are not the same as a perm. They are NOT alkaline-based and there are NO chemical ingredients - they are all-natural treatments!
Q: When my hair grows, will it keep the texture? How long does a Permanent Texture Treatment last?
A: The treatments permanently change the texture of hair until new roots grow with the hair’s natural texture, as long as the hair is healthy enough to absorb the treatment. In the case of super-damaged hair, results may last for up to four months.
Q: Are Permanent Texture Treatments bad for my hair?
A: Not at all! Our Permanent Texture Treatments are formaldehyde-free and are not alkaline-based. Our product uses only natural ingredients that won't cause damage or breakage to the hair. Additionally, unlike other curl relaxer treatments on the market, our Permanent Texture Treatments have no health risks involved!
Q: Are the products used bad for the environment?
A: Nope! The products we use for our Permanent Texture Treatments are made from organic compounds and there are no harmful ingredients or fumes - making the treatments environmentally friendly.
Q: How long have you been doing these Permanent Texture Treatments?
A: Patricia has been doing Permanent Texture Treatments for 8 years. She has introduced to this revolutionary treatment product about 3 years ago and it has been her favourite ever since!
So, do we have you convinced to try out a Permanent Texture Treatment or do you still have outstanding questions? Leave a comment below or book in with Patricia for a free consultation today. BRB - that anti-frizz treatment is calling my name!
