Daily Haircare Heroes

Create a haircare routine to better care for your hair plus best treatments and products.

Treat your hair.

Use a hair treatment once a week. I like to use the Olaplex No. 8 Deep Conditioning Mask once a week. Its nourishing, quick and easy to use. It adds shine, helps to smooth, and adds moisture to treat damaged hair. In shower hair treatments are quick and convenient to use; you’re able to multi task while the treatment gets to work. Leave on for 10 minutes and rinse. Another great treatment is the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle. Its quick (3 minutes) and it works. I like to use it every time I wash my hair and its great for travel.

Tip: use cold water as a final rinse. This will help close the hair cuticle and prevent frizz and add shine. Do not rub the hair whilst wet, blot instead to avoid the hair cuticle being raised.

Microfibre hair towel.

Make it routine – another piece of armoury to look after your hair is to use a microfibre hair towel after washing your hair. Its lightweight and easy to use – and it saves time. The microfibre is absorbent and soaks up water making drying your hair a lot quicker. The fabric also being smooth, unlike using a regular bath towel, helps the hair cuticle and prevents damage. I like to use the Silkee 100% Microfibre Hair Towel everytime I wash my hair, to speed up my blowdry time.

A good blowdry brush.

The Denman D3 Original Styler. It’s a classic and it works. It glides through wet hair without catching or dragging, making it a great detangler. As for using it as a blow dry brush, it gently grips and smoothes the hair like a dream as you blow dry. The result is a sleek, frizz free finish. Highly recommend.

The best hair protection.

A silk hair wrap is gentle on the hair, looks after the hair cuticle, reduces frizz and retains moisture in the hair. And if you need to tie your hair, use a silk hair tie to reduce damage and to prevent raising the hair cuticle. Wearing a silk lined hat helps to avoid wool fibres tugging at the hair cuticle causing breakage and frizz. Multi task while you sleep and try a silk pillowcase, it will look after your hair literally while you sleep! Wake up to frizz free and manageable hair.

Vitamins for hair.

Eat well for hair health and incorporate eggs into your diet. They contain the two most important nutrients for hair – protein and biotin; which help to promote hair strength and growth. Spinach contains vitamin A and iron and is important to also incorporate it into your diet for good hair health. If you still feel you have a deficiency in biotin for instance, supplements are available. I like the Holland and Barrett 300 ug Biotin, it’s a lower dosage and feel it makes a difference for my hair – and also after a short time.
