Are you facing hair loss or frizzy and damaged hair? You are not alone – summer’s sweaty and humid conditions mean we shampoo more often, leading to dry and weak hair stripped of its natural oils. Add to that hard water and stressful lifestyles, and you have a recipe for damaged and dull tresses.
What your hair needs is a deep conditioning treatment – but you don’t have to invest in an expensive salon hair botox regimen. Simply follow our easy at-home steps, using your favourite drugstore and salon products.
STEP 1: Pre-shampoo treatment
Originally formulated for Audrey Hepburn, the award-winning Philip Kingsley Elasticizer pre-shampoo conditioning treatment adds elasticity, manageability, bounce and shine. It will leave your hair stronger and healthier. Simply apply it to damp hair from root to tip for 10-20 minutes, covering with a shower cap for maximum impact. Shampoo and condition as usual.
STEP 2: Shampoo
Charcoal-infused shampoo is ideal for a complete hair detox. Hask Purifying Shampoo includes activated charcoal, citrus oil and grapefruit extracts, helping give your dull and damaged hair a new lease on life.
STEP 3: Hair mask
Once or twice a week, give your hair a superboost infusion of moisture with a mask. Apply Garnier Ultimate Blends Repairing Hair Food Papaya after shampoo and leave on for a few minutes. Rinse off and follow with conditioner.
STEP 4: Conditioner
The secret to lively and glistening hair is your scalp. Sachajuan gives a fresh spin on conditioner with its Scalp Conditioner, which promises to soothe irritated heads and help maintain a healthy moisture balance.
STEP 5: Hair oil
Keep your freshly washed and treated locks looking shiny and frizz-free with hair oil. With its featherlight texture and dreamy scent, celebrity favourite Ouai Hair Oil helps smooth and nourish distressed hair. Apply a few pumps to damp hair before styling to keep your hair from drying out, or apply to the ends after styling.
