We’d all love our hair to look luscious, volumised and full of life.
However, if you are anything like me, then you’re probably guilty of using the same old hair products day in, day out and not really giving your hair the care as it deserves. Well, if you need a little inspiration, here are some fabulous hair products which will certainly help give your hair a new lease of life.
Germaine De Capuccini Hair Oil
Formulated with 5 natural oils that have twice the anti-oxidising power of Argan oil, this restoring essence repairs the hair and protects it against daily aggression. The hair is immediately hydrated, shiny and frizz-free, without feeling oily.
The oil is easily absorbed into the hair to repair and strengthen. Formulated with Baobab and Patawa Oil, this essence is high in antioxidants to repair strands from the inside and protect against daily damage. It prevents damage and provides thermal protection, strengthens and conditions while adding shine, detangling and reducing frizz.
It is really easy to use on either wet or dry hair and has a beautiful subtle fragrance.
This is an intensive mineral-rich treatment mask that deeply conditions, to leave hair soft and smooth, and the scalp nourished. Vitamin C-rich Watercress and Red Clay soothe and nourish the scalp, while Apricot Kernel Oil conditions to help promote stronger, healthy-looking, manageable hair, making it the perfect product for when you hair is feeling a tad drab. After using the product, I definitely noticed that the shine was restored to my hair and my scalp far less dry.
Like all ESPA products, using the mask is a very sensory experience - it smells truly divine for one! Plus it creates an incredible cooling and tingling sensation on your scalp, which is so soothing and relaxing (kind of like after a head massage). It’s an amazing addition to any day of self-care indulgence.
It is suitable for all hair types, especially dry or weak hair, and, handily, can also be used to soften and nourish dry skin on the body.
IGK Antisocial Overnight Bond- Building Dry Hair Mask
Now, this product is a real time saver as it does all the hard work while you sleep!
This leave-in mask uses a bond-building formula to strengthen hair. Working at night, it adheres to the proteins in every strand to restore a more robust structure. Amino acids help to condition the cuticles, promoting a glossier result and combating heat damage.
To get the most out of every IGK Antisocial Overnight Dry Mask application, use this product just before going to bed. Spray the mask onto dry hair and then brush well. In the morning, comb the hair and style as usual.
No matter what time of day you use the hair mask, Antisocial won’t mess with your style. There’s no need to wash the mask out the following morning — so those who straighten their hair won’t have to wash, dry, and flat iron all over again, and anyone with curly hair won’t have to try and dry their locks before rushing off to work. (And you won’t need to toss your pillowcases into the laundry more often while using Antisocial either; the mask was made to resist transferring while you sleep.)
The vegan ingredient has the same hair care benefits as traditional silk protein; it detangles, nourishes, and makes hair silky soft. However, the process used to create it is entirely animal-free!
Viviscal Hair Growth Programme:
I’ve never managed to be persuaded to take hair supplements before, but when a number of people mentioned Viviscal hair growth programme, I felt it was definitely worth a try. Viviscal is the UK’s most clinically researched hair growth supplement, and the company have been researching hair loss for the last 25 years. The Viviscal Hair Growth and Hair Care Program provides a long term solution and a variety of ways to nourish your hair from the inside out, and the outside in, allowing you to feel the difference.
In the first couple of months using the supplements, I didn’t see much difference, but as I hit the three-month mark, I started to see an improvement in the strength of my hair and also noticed new baby hairs growing through. My hairdresser also commented on the changes in my hair’s condition and asked whether I was using any new products. Viviscal is the only supplement to contain the proprietary Amino Mar C™ marine complex, plus a blend of vitamins and minerals that are essential to promoting healthy hair. In the 1980s, a Scandinavian professor studying the Inuits discovered that their great hair and skin was the result of their fish - and protein-rich diet. He isolated the key protein molecules from the Inuits’ diet and, from these origins, Amino Mar C™ was created. Since the professor’s discovery, Viviscal has been tried and tested worldwide. I am now about to start the next 3 month supply, the point where thinning and breakages are meant to decline and leave hair looking much more vibrant.
A super nourishing treatment infused with natural oils, minerals and vitamins, designed to replenish dry and damaged hair. The luxurious formula improves hair hydration and elasticity to combat brittle, weak strands. It is created from a blend of more than 13 natural plants and essential oils rich in omega fatty acid, antioxidants and nutrients. Plus one of the key ingredients is amino acid complex, which stimulates hair growth for improved hair density.
I found this mask really nourishing for your hair and particularly good for rejuvenating dry and tired locks. It’s also a great product for those who work in a city environment and find the smoggy atmosphere takes its toll on their hair. You only have to apply the treatment for a couple of minutes to see some really pleasing results.
