Chloe shared with us her hair care secrets and routine for healthy hair.
In conversation with Chloe Zara Hair
After two decades styling some of the countries top celebrities Chloe Zara has stepped away from the tongs to focus on the hair care brand she launched in 2020 with her husband Scott. Widely regarded as one of New Zealand’s leading hairstylists, Chloe has a wealth of experience and an unparalleled knowledge of what ingredients we need for beautiful, soft, healthy hair. Sisters & Co hosted Chloe Zara for an in store event last Thursday night where Chloe shared with us her hair care secrets from the ‘Chemical Cut’ she used to have to how to create the gorgeous, glowing hair she has now.
Tell us a bit about yourself and how you started and your brand and what inspired you?
“I was inspired to create an all natural hair care brand made in New Zealand which is the first of its kind. It was to create a premium hair care range as I have a huge belief that woman should care for their hair in the same way they care for their skin.
Tell us about your products and range and what makes it different from anything else in the market?
“Everything is made form clean ingredients here in New Zealand. We have five different products which creates a luxurious hair care routine that nourishes everything from the scalp to the hair oil that can be used as a body oil - and perfume!
What is your daily hair care routine?
“As someone who washes their hair two-three times a week. The ritual is to take the time with each step.
To cleanse my scalp and hair I use the Silk Hair Wash . I like to cleanse twice in a row to remove natural grease and product build-up. On the second cleanse I massage the wash into the scalp and hairline for a couple of minutes to activate the powerhouse ingredients.
Removing excess water from my hair, I then apply a generous amount of the Silk Hair Condition to mids, ends, and a little to the roots for scalp care.
Then after gently towel drying my hair, I like to wrap my hair in a microfibre towel and leave it on for around 30 minutes. I do this because the towel absorbs most of the water from the hair, which then results in less drying time with heat, which means less damage to the hair. I always apply two small drops of the Hair & Body Perfume Oil to damp hair. This is a leave-in treatment that will help to smooth, seal and protect your strands. Very important to use when applying any heat from styling tools!
Then I use a thumbnail amount of the pre-styling Hair Crème to add body and soft texture. I very gently comb through with only a wide-tooth comb to prevent any damage to the hair. Layering the hair creme and the Hair & Body Perfume Oil gives a great foundation to styling hair.
Once my hair is dry, I apply a further 1-2 small drops of the Hair & Body Perfume Oil to mids and ends as an extra layer of heat protection, I then style with my irons for my desired look. The Perfume Oil always gives my hair shine and helps to smooth any flyways.
What is next for Chloe Zara Hair?
“We are so excited to be in the process of prepping for the launch on a new product. We can’t say too much right now, but watch this space for a product that is perfect for summers at the beach.”
