The holy grail haircare essentials you need for a spring refresh
As lockdown restrictions begin to ease across the UK, you may well be counting down the days until you make it back to the salon.
But if you’ve not been able to get an appointment yet, don’t feel ready for that cut and colour, or simply want to supercharge your haircare routine from the comfort of your own home, then we’ve got you covered.
We’ve rounded up the holy grail haircare products you need in your beauty cabinet to keep your locks happy and healthy this spring.
If you’re after a salon blowout without leaving your home, this root boosting spray from Philip Kingsley is just the ticket. Perfect for those with fine or flat hair, this spray gives an instant lift that leaves hair feeling fuller and thicker. Simply spray onto damp hair before you blow dry and enjoy your best hair day.
Infused with pure hemp-derived CBD, organic hemp seed oil and aloe vera, this volumising duo is ideal if you’re looking for something to help with hair loss. Sulphate, paraben and silicone free, the CBD nourishes the scalp and increases blood circulation which in turn works to stimulate hair growth. The combination of these two products, plus the addition of the Hair Defence strengthening serum, will give your hair the perfect conditions for it to flourish.
This blend of oils works wonders to nourish and strengthen the ends of your hair, perfect if your hair is susceptible to breakages. It’s been specially formulated with macadamia and jojoba to soften your hair, adding gloss and shine. Apply a few drops to the ends of hair before styling or use as an overnight treatment before bed.
For supercharged haircare on a budget, this nourishing coconut hair mask from vegan brand Faith and Nature is a beauty cupboard essential. Housed in 100% recycled and recyclable packaging, this hair mask comes in four different types so there’s something to suit your every hair need. Opt for wild rose and chamomile for more shine, dragon fruit for added volume or shea and argan for intense nourishment. After shampooing, simply leave in for up to 30 minutes, before rinsing for smooth and shiny locks.
If you feel like giving your hair a helping hand, then it might be worth thinking about vitamins. Stress, diet, hormones, vitamin deficiencies and certain medications can all lead to thinning hair, and often hair loss. These apple-flavoured chewable gummies are proven to stimulate hair growth by up to 78%, and with a powerful cocktail of biotin and zinc to stimulate hair follicles, they’re vegan-friendly too. Taking these won’t be a quick fix but you should start to see some noticeable results after three to six months.
Even the best hair products in the world won’t stop breakages from poor hair accessories. Silk scrunchies have been taking the beauty world by storm, and with good reason; they work to eliminate tangle and frizz, while reducing snagging and breakage. But it’s not all rosy when it comes to the way silk is mass manufactured and the detrimental impacts this can have on the environment, which is why these Rok’N’Dol silk scrunchies are great if you’re after a more conscious, luxury product.
