TRESemmé Vitamin E Moisture Rich Shampoo and Conditioner
£3,89 for 500ml, each
I discovered this product when I was staying with a friend whose luscious locks I have always admired. Borrowing her toiletries I discovered the secret to her sleek hair: TRESemmé Vitamin E Moisture Rich Shampoo and Conditioner. Since then they have taken pride of place in my bathroom.
Professional performance formula shampoo nourishes dry, damaged hair and restores moisture and strength. Enriched with Vitamin E and natural extracts of sunflower, hazelnut and almond to strengthen hair and prevent damage.
TRESemmé Moisture Rich Conditioner restores moisture to the most dehydrated hair. With its ultra-rich formula also souped up with vitamin E, sunflower, hazelnut and almond extracts, it is ideal for those with dry, over-processed hair or those who frequently use heat styling tools. And it is so light in feel and texture, it doesn’t weigh your hair down, making it ideal for frequent use.
Percy and Reed Totally TLC Hydrating Mask
£20.00 for 175ml.
For dry, damaged hair in need of rescue remedy, this deep, indulgent treatment which helps restores your hair’s vitality, and makes it soft and more manageable is a must. Percy and Reed enlist marshmallow to lend a hand nourishing and strengthening stressed tresses, and coconut oil for deep conditioning and moisturising.
Work the mask through the hair, gently massaging from roots to ends until the hair is covered. Wrap hair up and place the bonnet over the hair to create a warmer temperature. Leave on for a minimum of 10 minutes, then remove bonnet and rinse thoroughly.
Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer
£13.49 for 170ml.
Spritz, style and go – straightening has never been faster. Microflex stylane creates a ‘thermal blanket’ of flexible silicone resin that protects hair and helps prevent breakage. Trisiloxane and Isododecane allow for quick drying, resulting in a smooth and silky finish. Okay, science lesson over, in a nutshell: For sleek locks, this is a must-have.
Wahl Afro PowerPik Hair Dryer 1250W with Pik Attachment
This is another magic product I was introduced to by raiding someone else’s beauty box, namely resident FAB office grooming guru, Maria. Don’t let the name fool you, while perfect for Afro hair, Wahl Afro PowerPik Hair Dryer is also great for wild, frizzy manes. The powerful turbo motor means faster drying for all hair types. The PowerPik has 3 heat/speed settings and cool shot for more control. And at just £13.68 it is a steal too!
Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray
Thousands of years ago the Berber tribes of Morocco discovered the oil extracted from its fruit of indigenous Argan Tree, with its amazing cosmetic properties. For centuries the tribes used this all-natural organic oil in its natural, undiluted form, to protect their skin and hair against the harsh semi-desert living conditions, and now you can get in on the secret and protect your hair (and skin) against the harsh urban-living conditions. With a range of products in the market you are spoiled for choice, but I would highly recommend a personal favourite, Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray.
Once hair is completely dry and styled, spray a light even mist of Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray about 10 inches away from hair. Alternatively, you can spray onto hands and work through hair. Dusting your hair brush with Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray will help prevent static and frizz, guaranteeing luscious locks all day long.
