Haircare products in general have a LOT of boxes to tick when it comes to meeting the wishes and desires of us 21st century Rapunzels. From fighting frizz to adding volume, nourishing dry ends, increasing shine, and boosting curls - our expectations are HIGH. But come winter? NEW HEIGHTS...
It's time to bring in the big guns.
THE SHINE SERUM : Do as the Swedes do and head to Sachajuan for some serious haircare TLC. When it comes to caring for and preventing damaged hair, Sachajuan have your needs covered down to a T. Smooth frizz, prevent split ends, and protect your hair against the wear and tear of winter's worst with the Shine Serum*, and say hello to sleek shiny hair in a matter of days.
THE OVERNIGHT MASK : For an intensive injection of moisture and Sachajuan's famous Ocean Silk Technology, coat your locks in a generous layer of the Overnight Hair Repair* post-wash and pre-sleep. I adore this mask because there's no need to rinse it out come morning. Not only will your hair look and feel thicker and healthier but it will leave you with some divinely scented waves.
THE NATURAL TREATMENT : In the dead of winter, up your haircare game and tumble into bed with a head full of Coconut Oil for the ultimate boost of hydration and nourishment. This one definitely calls for a rinse come sunrise but will leave your hair silky smooth and weightless for days to come.
THE LUXE INDULGENCE : For treatment of the most luxurious kind, Oribe tick ALL of the boxes. Their Signature Moisture Masque* is quite literally the creme de la creme of hair masks - a thick, white, souffle-like cream which leaves even the most dry and damaged of hair feeling weightless, and with a newfound softness. A week's worth of use will increase elasticity, strengthen hair shafts, and protect your locks against future stresses.
THE WEIGHTLESS OIL : For an extra does of nourishment, generous application of Aesop's Shine* (a lightweight hydrating oil) adds instant softness and lustre to even the dullest and driest of hair types. The richly scented blend of essential oils (including jojoba, almond, and petitgrain oils) can also be used to smooth flyaways, and as an intensive overnight treatment. Everyone loves a multi-purpose product, right?
THE ONE STOP WONDER : For a deep conditioning treatment with the 'do-it-all' factor, Dead Sea Spa Magik's Hair Serum is The One. This wonder serum will smooth frizz, nourish split ends, remove buildup, soothe the scalp, and leave hair weightlessly soft. With such a lengthy list of claims you'd be forgiven for thinking the contents of this sleek white bottle a fad, but fear not, all boxes ticks on my behalf.
THE MAGIC IN A BOTTLE : <--- A title well deserved. Huile de Leonor Greyl is perfect for dry/winter-ravaged hair as it both protects and nourishes. A complex blend of botanical oils based around refined copra oil, this sweet-scented treatment is guaranteed to hydrate and strengthen your hair for the long-term. Best applied via hair massage, this oil is ideal if knots and tangles are the bane of your bedtime brushing routine.
