It’s safe to say, we aren’t always kind to our hair. Dyeing, drying, heat styling and even putting it back in a hairband can all leave our tresses looking and feeling limp and lack-lustre. But don’t worry, help is on the way! We’ve rounded up our favourite haircare heroes to help bring a little love to our locks.
Hair in need of hydration?
Got an unquenchable thirst? Whether your hair is naturally dry or you’re a dab hand with the curling wand (but maybe not the heat protectant…), hair that lacks hydration can look dull, frizzy and lifeless. Intensive shampoos, conditioners and treatments are a great way to start restoring your locks to their shining glory.
Let’s start with a classic. Philip Kingsley’s Elasticizer is a must-have among haircare fans. Originally formulated for Audrey Hepburn to keep her trademark brunette tresses in fabulous condition between filming, this Coconut Breeze Elasticizer works to deliver serious hydration, plus a delicate tropical scent. Well, if it’s good enough for Audrey…
Did someone call for a medic? Infused with cocoa butter and oat humectants, plus argan, baobab and sea buckthorn oils, My Hair Doctor’s Re-Hydrate Mask is formulated with dry, coarse hair types in mind. In just ten minutes, it promises to help leave your hair feeling stronger and looking sleek.
A fairly new kid on the block, We Are Paradoxx is quickly becoming an essential in our haircare routines. The Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner duo is perfect for maintaining glossy, healthy-looking hair day to day, but for an extra boost, the Mask and Oil Treatment Collection is great when normal conditioner just won’t cut it. If you’re feeling decadent, be sure to check out the Mind Blown Hair & Body Treatment Candle for your very own at-home spa treatment that’ll leave you hair (and limbs!) feeling gorgeously soft. You take the oil from the melted candle and massage it into your hair and skin!
Don’t worry curly-haired girls, we haven’t forgotten about you. When curly hair needs a moisture boost, there’s only one product to call on – Dream Coat for Curly Hair by Color Wow.
Working to condition, moisturise, reduce the look of frizz and look after your colour, this superhero product will bring unruly curls into line in no time.
Need a volume boost?
Is there anything worse than when your ‘do lacks oomph? From crunchy mousses to drying our hair upside-down (yes, really), we’ve gone through it all trying to get some volume into our hair. We’re so glad these heroes are here to rescue us from our styling acrobatics with their gravity-defying formulas.
Working to build volume from the very first wash, this set from Tweak’d has everything you need to care for colour-treated hair that needs a bit of va-va-voom. The Volumizing Scrub is a great alternative to shampoo, while Volumizing Clayditioner helps to maximise shine.
If age is playing a part in your hair looking thinner or limp, Hairfix has a solution. The Follicle Plus Anti-Age Scalp Stimulating Gel encourages the look of thicker hair, and with thicker-looking hair comes plenty of volume!
For that extra bounce, a leave-in treatment, like this one from Eleni & Chris,
can help to give your locks more hold, making your bouncy blow-dries and beachy waves last even longer.
Reviving after dye
Have hair to dye for? If you have colour-treated hair, using targeted formulas can help to keep your tresses looking salon-fresh between washes. We go back to the experts at Philip Kingsley for this one. The four-piece Pure Colour collection features a shampoo, conditioner, Frizz-Fighting Gloss and classic Elasticizer to help keep coloured hair looking shiny, fresh and conditioned. Plus, if it helps your colour to look great for longer, it might mean less time at the salon. Win win!
Looking good, but want to look even better? If you just fancy giving your hair a little bit of TLC, you can’t go wrong with Liz Earle’s botanic-rich combo.
Not only are the Botanical Shine Shampoo and Botanical Shine Conditioner for Normal Hair expertly balanced to keep your hair looking at its best, they smell great too, making this duo a haircare must-have.
We know these fab formulas will have your hair fighting-fit once again. Be sure to check out the rest of our haircare selection for more hero-status products and tools.
