The Best Hair Care Products for Your Hair Type
Investing in your hair care is just as important as investing in your hair colourist and for this, you should use the best hair care products for your hair type.
It will ensure not only maintained colour longevity but will protect your hair against heat + environmental damage (yep- the sun can wreak havoc on your hair colour too).
When it comes to establishing a great haircare routine it's important to remember it's not a one size fits all scenario. Each hair type is unique and therefore we have created a little guide below to help you find your type + choose your main concern!
Your individual routine ultimately depends on a few factors, from the natural texture of your hair, to how you like to style it every day will alter the routine you end up choosing. Whether you're battling frizzy hair, split ends, a flaky scalp or flat hair, there will be something here to help.
Firstly, find your natural hair texture or type
Do you have...
- Straight hair
- Wavy hair
- Curly hair
- Kinky hair
Secondly, what is your main concern?
- Dry scalp / Oily scalp
- Damaged hair
- Colour Fading
Thirdly, has your hair been bleached, dyed, or chemically processed?
If you have blonde hair or get your hair lightened regularly, we suggest incorporating a pre-shampoo treatment to help give your hair that "virgin hair" softness that is super silky and smooth to the touch (say goodbye to that straw hair feeling).
Our favourite is the Christophe Robin Moisturising hair oil with Lavender oil. This incredible hair treatment can be left in for 15 minutes before you shower, overnight while you sleep, or all day long depending on how much time you have! No matter the leave in time, you will see a result, with SPF6, it protects hair colour and preserves its shine.
Lastly, how do you wear your hair on a daily basis?
This is important- if you prefer to let your hair dry naturally and embrace your hairs natural curl it would be better to opt for a gentle leave in product such as the Christophe Robin Daily Hair Cream.
If you can't break up with your hair straightener, the next best thing is to invest in a heat protectant product. This is a must have for every one using heat stylers (including blowdryers or curling wands) our favourite is by GHD who have an entire styling range with heat protectants for your tresses!
