There is so much chat right now about getting our do's done.

As thousands rush to newly-reopened hairdressers, many forget that there is work that need done to lockdown hair before you sit in the salon seat.

After months of home blow dry's and box dyes, our hair is screaming out for a bit of TLC.

From deep conditioning, pre-washing and getting it styled, we had no idea there was so much work that needed done before your do gets done.

We asked Blow Colour bar owner Falon Carberry to give us her best tips.

Falon said: "If you are booked in for a colour treatment, avoid using any wash out dyes or colour shampoo and conditioners for at least a week in advance of your appointment.

"Although it may be tempting, don't wash and style your hair the day of your colour appointment.

"Try washing it one to two days before.

"Freshly washed hair isn't the best palette for hair colour. If possible use a clarifying shampoo to reduce build up.

"Treat yourself to a deep conditioning treatment a few days before your colour appointment. Making sure your ends are moisturized will help to make sure that your hair takes the color evenly."

For those with roots growing back, Falon advised to be realistic about what can be done. Don't go hitting the bleach just yet.

Falon continued: "Be realistic with your expectations about what can be achieved in one appointment.

"Your root re-growth will be more extreme than normal and your hair will probably be in a poorer condition than at past appointments.

"Be patient and listen to your stylists advice and guidance.

"If you're booking online, take extra care to make sure you've booked yourself in for the correct service or treatment.

"There's a big difference in appointment length between a quick blowdry and a labour intensive balayage colour treatment.

"If you're not sure - contact your stylist or salon before booking. They'll be happy to help."

Some of her advice was to mention how salons will be working in the 'new normal'.

She said: "Make sure you're on time for your appointment. Salons will be under a lot of pressure to fit in everyone's appointments while also operating under the new government guidelines.

"Make sure you familiarise yourself with your salon's new guidelines. Do you need to wear a mask? Most salons will not allow you to bring anyone else with you, so do you also need to arrange childcare?"

And most importantly, Falon's advice reminds us to remember - we are not the only ones doing something new.

"Be kind - this is all new to salons too.

"They will be feeling the pressure and trying their best to keep you and their staff safe and happy. Stylists will be nervous about being back in the salon too.

"Try and be patient while we all navigate this new normal together."
