Beauty Tip: Hair care we love

Beauty Tip: Hair care we love

Shampoo and Conditioner

Bb Thickening Shampoo & Conditioner is the industry’s go-to when prepping fine hair. With Soy and Whey protein to help thicken, strength and hydrate – along with Silk Powder to reinforce the cuticle making hair look and feel thicker before you even start to style.

EVO the therapist calming shampoo and conditioner. Repairs, hydrates and smooths hair; greatly improving manageability. Oh and they come in travel sizes too!

Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo is designed to soak up excess oil from your scalp to freshen up between washes. It's one of the best products around. Shake, spray and rub with fingers to give new life to your hair. 

Our product pick is the Evo Water Killer that has the added bonus of styling powder to give extra OOMF! 

Alternative: If you don't have any dry shampoo around use a small amount of translucent powder, the same you use to set your makeup. 

Hair Brush

Mason Pearson boar bristle and nylon pocket brush. Tuck this in your bag and never risk another bad hair day.

Hair Perfume

Perfume isn't just for your skin but a great way to freshen up your hair and smell amazing. Our go-to is Byredo Blanche hair perfume. 

Sea Salt Spray

O&M Surf Bomb Sea Salt Texture Spray

This texture spray is a shot of the sea when a dunk in the ocean isn’t possible. Surf Bomb delivers that effortless, sexy tousled look without drying out your hair or dumping sand in the shower. 

Styling Cream

Revive your style and put the shine and bounce back into your blow-dry with just: your hands, a brush, and pea-sized amount of Wow’s One-Minute Stlying CreamA quick alternative to the time-consuming process of blow-drying from wet.

Treatment

A daily use treatment, Nioxin Diamax Advance Treatment protects the existing hair roots and helps prevent the ends against damage or worse still breakage. Massage into the roots daily while hair is damp before combing through to dry. Hair is longer, stronger and thicker.

Hair Mask

Hair masks are a great way to moisturise, hydrate and replenish your hair. 

We love ..... 

SP WELLA Luxe oil keratin restore mask. This mask is the creme de ler creme of the hair region. A rich decadent mask containing essential oils like Jojoba, Almond Oils and Argan Oil to provide protection and nourishment. Used weekly to repair hair fibre, reconstruct and restore hairs health and vitality.

Kerastase initialise advance scalp and hair concentrate (leave in). A skincare-inspired super-serum that works on the 4 attributes of Strength, Shine, Softness and Substance.

But natural alternatives can be just as good.

3 DIY Hair Masks:

1. Honey Milk Mask

1/2 cup of fat milk
2 large spoon honey

Directions: Microwave the milk so it’s warm, and stir in the honey until it melts

This is a very nourishing hair mask! & it’s actually a great mask for damaged hair. Use fat milk for coarse hair & skim milk for fine hair. The fat in the milk & honey helps to soften and nourish your hair! Leave this mask on for 15-20 minutes and then rinse with shampoo as you would normally.

2. Strawberry Mask

8 strawberries
1 egg york
2 large spoon olive oil

Directions: Blend ingredients together, leave on for 20-30 minutes

This hair mask is my favorite because it makes your hair smell DELICIOUS after. (Depending on how long you leave it in of course!) This hair mask looks almost too delicious to not eat, but of course that wouldn’t be too good because of the egg yolk hah. This hair mask is easy and very pretty to make. Try wearing a shower cap to keep the strawberries in your hair for the entire time!

3. Honey Avocado Mask

1 ripe avacado
1 tsp honey
1 tsp oil

Directions: Mix ingredients, smash avocado & stir well

This hair mask is amazing.  It gives my hair shine and makes it soft after, just like new! The only thing is that it can be a bit oily so shampoo twice if you feel you added too much oil for your hair. Leave it in your hair for 20 minutes and rinse well! (And don’t be surprised when your hair is super shiny and soft.)
