Blame the weather, blame your genetic makeup but for some reason, the locks on our head very often have a life of their own and refuse to listen to what we really want it to do. Thankfully, there are hair treatments that help your stressed scalp and strands relax and rejuvenate. Here are some of our favourite treatments you can do at home, or in a salon.
Olaplex No.3 Hair Perfector, $44
Olaplex is now a go-to name for hairstylists and colourists all over the world to protect their client’s hair during a chemical treatment. Thanks to its patented active ingredient, Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate, Olaplex shields the hair during the process of colouring, prevents further damage and even manages to reverse and mend some damage that has already happened. It’s a three-part system, two of which you have to do exclusively in a salon, and the third, you can purchase from Sephora and do it at home.
Korean Gloss Anti-Frizz Treatment, $218
If frizz is your biggest problem, this is your solution. The Korean Gloss is a keratin treatment that helps smooth and “fill in” hair cuticles and hair that has grown porous from the chemical treatments with proteins, amino acid and hydrolysed collagen. The result? Smoother, more moisturised and healthier hair. Available at Mi The Salon
BRIOGEO Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask, $49
Probably one of the holy grail hair product lines of the moment, BRIOGEO’s Deep Conditioning Mask from Sephora is great for anybody who feels like their hair can use some sort of taming. After you’ve washed and shampooed your hair, comb this mask into your wet hair evenly — throw on a shower cap and do about your business in the shower, but try to take a little longer time than usual. After 30 minutes, rinse and feel the instant transformation!
The Ordinary Multi-Peptide Serum For Hair Density, $32
If density — or rather, the lack of it is your problem, then this Multi-Peptide Serum for Hair Density from The Ordinary is your solution. This is a leave-in treatment for your scalp designed to support hair health so that it looks thicker, denser, fuller and healthier. It’s super lightweight, making it perfect to massage on to your scalp just before bed. It’s also emollient based for efficient penetration. Available soon at Sephora.
