Protecting your hair this summer For talented stylists, great customer service at affordable prices We all love the sand, sea and the sunny hot days that summer brings, but the effect it has on our hair is not so good without the right hair care routine. Protect from the sun - everyone knows that we need to protect our skin from the sun, but it is just as important to give the same treatment to our hair. Keep sun damage away by using UV protection hair products. UV rays break down the hair’s protein, weakening its structure to leave it vulnerable to damage. Remember salty sea water, roughs up the cuticle to leave hair looking frizzy, brittle and dry.

Using hair care products containing UV filters daily especially if you colour your hair helps keep your hair in top shape and prevents your colour fading. So conditioning your hair with UV protecting hair conditioners, masks and leave-in conditioner sprays is a must. At Profile Hair Dorchester we recommend the Schwarzkopf BC hairtherapy Sun Protect and Color Freeze hair care range available only in professional hair salons. Humidity or dry heat is another problem causing hair to frizz. One solution is Moroccan Oil

applied to freshly washed and conditioned hair before styling as usual. Moroccan oil leaves your hair feeling smooth and smelling gorgeous as well protecting it from the elements. For added protection wear a stylish hat or scarf and don’t forget to keeping up with regular 6-8 weekly haircuts always helps keep your hair is great shape. Happy hair, happy holidays!

Salt cod fritters


1 1/4 lb floury potatoes 1lbp salt cod 6 finely chopped onions Juice of 1/2 lemon Plain flour (for dusting) 2 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley 3 1/2 oz dried white breadcrumbs Olive oil, for shallow frying 2 eggs, beaten Lemon wedges and salad leaves, to serve 1 1/4 cups milk


1. Soak the salt cod in cold water for at least 24 hours, changing the water two or three times. The cod should swell as it rehydrates. Sample a tiny piece. It should not taste unpleasantly salty when fully rehydrated. Drain well and pat dry with kitchen paper. 2. Cook the potatoes, unpeeled, in a pan of lightly salted boiling water for about 20 minutes, until tender. Drain. As soon as they are cool enough to handle, peel the potatoes, then mash with a fork or use a potato masher. 3. Pour the milk into a pan, add half the spring onions and bring to a simmer. Add the soaked cod and poach very gently for 10-15 minutes, or until it flakes easily. Remove the cod and flake it with a fork into a bowl, discarding bones and skin. 4. Add 4 tablespoons of mashed potato to the cod and beat them together with a wooden spoon. Work in the olive oil, then gradually add the remaining mashed potato. Beat in the remaining spring onions and the parsley. 5. Season with lemon juice and pepper to taste. Add one egg to the mixture and beat it until thoroughly combined, then chill until firm. Shape the chilled fish mixture into 1218 balls, then gently flatten into small round cakes. Coat each one in flour, then dip in the remaining beaten egg and coat with dried breadcrumbs. Chill until ready to fry. 6. Heat about 3/4 inch oil in a large, heavy frying pan. Add the fritters and cook over a medium-high heat for about 4 minutes. Turn them over and cook for a further 4 minutes on the other side, until crisp and golden. Drain on kitchen paper, then serve with allioli, lemon wedges and salad leaves.

The Dining Room Pop-up Restaurants

Weymouth is seeing so many new restaurants opening up this summer, all in time for the Olympics. The restaurant scene has never been so vibrant. But a new phenomenon (to Weymouth) is the emergence of Pop-up restaurants. Pop-up’s are temporary restaurants and often operate from a well known building, private home, former factory or similar places during a festival time. Pop-up restaurants have been popular for a while in Britain but they are not a new idea. They have existed for years in Cuba, known as 'Paladares' where local cuisine is simply served from private homes. Of course nowadays diners can make use of social media, such as blogs and Twitter, to follow the movement of these restaurants and make online reservations. Pop-up restaurants are an ideal way to gain exposure for young professionals with skills in the field of hospitality, usually with the aim of attracting attention and potential investors in order to open a restaurant or another culinary concept. Masterchef Professional Finalist 2011 Claire Hutchings and her partner Ibraheem Musleh have recently opened a pop up in Cafe Vie D’Amour with this in mind. The menu is innovative and should be a real treat for locals and tourists alike. Another pop- up due to open in July is Salt in Brewers Quay. Salt will be a pop-up-bar and kitchen serving local seafood and will be another great addition to a wonderful foodie scene in Weymouth. We wish these new ventures great success. Here at The Dining Room we have held three really successful supper clubs, Spanish, Moroccan & Japanese nights. It was great to see so many locals really relishing these international cuisines. We look forward to creating many more of the supper clubs and making them a regular feature at The Dining Room – watch this space for more details. For now, we are enjoying the response to our new menu and are looking forward to a busy summer.

What is Hypnotherapy? The term “Hypnotherapy” comes from the Greek “Hypnos” which literally means “Nervous sleep”. This is not accurate as you not sleep (although the term is used to simplify the process). In fact you are aware at all times with complete control. Hypnotherapy techniques help you to feel completely relaxed whilst a therapist guides you in a kind of daydream. This gives your conscious mind a task whilst a therapist talks to your unconscious and help you change the way that you think about food, smoking, shyness etc. The unconscious mind holds all of the important elements that make you who you are and unique.

Just think to yourself how many times you have caught yourself doing that old habit unconsciously until someone makes you aware of it. This is because of your “unconscious driver”. Hypnotherapy, unlike any other therapy concentrates on these unconscious drivers that you are completely unaware of usually. The good news is that they can be “erased”; Hypnotherapy will change then make room for healthy habits and new behaviours. Another way that Hypnotherapy (and NLP) helps is by challenging old beliefs that have been installed in you. The clue to this comes from language such as: “I should”, “I must”, “I ought to”, “I can’t” and
