Your ultimate home hair kit should contain at least five of these woman&home product picks for flawless hair everyday.
A Cooler Curler
Use a straightener, such as the limited-edition Ghd Gold Rose Gold Professional Styler, R2 800, to create a more stylish kink than big, bouncy barrel-tonged curls that are more matronly. Pull through your hair as usual, then twist out at the jaw.
When you put on a face mask, pop one on your hair, too. Joico Defy Damage Protective Masque, R540 for 150ml, transforms dull, dry, dreary hair by the time you rinse it through.
Spray hair, section by section, at the roots using Wella Professional EIMI Sugar Lift, R321 for 250ml. Then gently lift hair up and away from the scalp using a round vent brush like Wet Brush Hi-Speed Round Brush, R230. Blast each section with a high heat low speed for better control.
Strip back your styling regime with Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger Mirrorsmooth High Gloss Primer, R415 for 100ml, which adds intense shine and protects against heat, all while maintaining your style.
Plantur 39 Phyto-Caffeine Shampoo for Fine, Brittle Hair, R170 for 250ml, really revs up the roots every time you wash.
Great for frizz: Double up your hair oil as a pre-shampoo treatment. We adore Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula Shine Boost Polisher Serum, R114,99 for 178ml, which nourishes your hair. In the shower lock out humidity while your hair is wet from shampoo but before you condition. L’Oreal Elvive Keratin Straight Oil Replacement, R94,95 for 300ml, is a formula that promises up to 72 hours of straight, frizz-free hair.
Apply a leave-in conditioner before bed as an overnight treatment. Try John Frieda Frizz Ease Daily Miracle Leave-In Conditioner, R115,95 for 200ml.
We’re big fans of colour touch-ups in-between salon visits. To hide regrowth, use Color Wow Root Cover Up, R550, a powder out in seven shades or L’Oreal Magic Retouch Root Concealer Spray, R104,95 for 75ml, out in five hues – it covers greys quickly.
