Hair can be unpredictable, disobedient and lacklustre at best – but in most cases, it’s nothing a well-constructed routine can’t fix. To shed some much-needed light on the most common causes of distress, we turn to the experts behind our Beauty Hall’s most heroic hair care brands for their recommended remedies – and game-changing tips for how to maximise the efficacy of your products.
“Wash hair with Nounou shampoo and conditioner to restructure and replenish, then comb Liquid Spell through the lengths (mixing three drops to two drops of Oi Oil for medium to coarse hair) before blow drying. For a weekly home treatment, apply The Renaissance Circle Repair hair mask to restore shine and softness to damaged hair.”
“Invati Advance is the perfect 3-step system to exfoliate the scalp and strengthen and thicken hair. It stops breakage and re-energises the scalp to encourage hair growth. Using the three-step system daily will reduce hair loss by 53% in just 12 weeks.”
“Looking after the skin on your head is as important as looking after the skin on your face – a healthy scalp means healthy hair. Revitalising Fortifying Serum and Regenerating Hair Mask from Hair Rituel by Sisley both contain rice proteins, which stimulate hair follicle stem cells to regenerate hair fibre and allow longer and denser hair.”
“You would never imagine hair could feel nourished after shampooing, but Dizziak Hydration Wash leaves it feeling just right (and smelling incredible). This, in addition to Dizziak Deep Conditioner, has completely changed my hair – it always felt dry, looked dull and would regularly break off. A little goes a long way and you can feel the natural hydrators working as soon as it touches the hair. To wear hair up in a slick bun, I apply a little of the Kiehl's gel to my hands when my hair is wet and work it though the front.”
”This duo from the Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil range is your key to glossy, hydrated hair. Primer and Dry Oil are great for all hair types – light but still moisturising, with heat/UV protection. Fatty acids and macadamia oil help to strengthen and nourish, moisturising brittle strands to leave hair soft with a beautiful sheen.”
